Nancy -- your comment "...Cherokees weren't even in the Carolinas..." is incorrect. The Cherokee Nation occupied much of western North Carolina in the early 1700s, and even up into western Virginia. The Tuscarora had been defeated c1715 in the Tuscarora War and most of them had moved north to the Iroquois Nation in New York by 1722. The central portion of NC (Salisbury District) didn't begin large scale settlement until c1750. So it would be difficult to determine which Native American ancestry might be connected with Easter. The Cowards had settled into that portion of Johnston Co. (established 1746) that became Dobbs Co. in 1758. Zachariah Coward (c1789) s/o Needham (c1748) and Phoebe is my ancestor. I have no further info on Phoebe. Regards, Jim N.
