I know Penelope Ward was born here in Bertie Co.Her mother was Nancy "Bird" Brown,and father James B. Ward.James' father was Nathan Ward,nothing on his wife.Her grandparents were Cherokee Indian Chief,And mother Sarah Indian.I see the chiefs name was James B. Brown.Penelope was my gr-grandmother x8.I have alot of names of her descendants if you need them.Also,the Native Americans listed were Cherokee.It seems that they adopted many things from the white settlers in the area,including American names.That explains their names that are listed.
