Edward Rufty, NC

My grandmother, Amanda Elizabeth Nash, was willed 50+ acres of Dutch Second Creek by Edward Rufty upon his death in 1878. I don't know why, except that he stated that she was "so good to me when I was sick." She filed Bastardy bonds on her two sons, Sydney and William, in 1876; Edward Rufty was the bondsman. I'm wondering if these boys were of Rufty blood, but born out of wedlock? In 1879 Amanda married my grandfather, Jesse Franklin Wyatt, and had 6 more children. James and Milton Rufty were the executors of Edward's will. Can anyone shed any light?
