About Sara Naky Ward

Sally is believed to have been Cherokee with one researcher indicating she was the daughter of Dragging Canoe.


disconnected from Dragging Canoe & Nellie Pathkiller as parents Sept 2016 based on insufficient evidence to make a connection

From Richard Ballard

We recently did a mtDNA test on a known direct female line descendant of Sarah Ward. This test and autosomal testing came back 100% European. We are searching for a second candidate along another maternal line.

Can you provide any documentation that can connect Sarah Ward, wife of Nathan Ward of Saddle Creek Grayson, with Dragging Canoe or any other Native American?

died after 1850 ________________________ 4-2014 I have many emailing asking if I have papers or validating. I did , as I had talked to a direct relative from out in the midwest. He was a hardworking man with a love for history and family and heritage. Many tornadoes ripped through the lands a few years ago , and he and his family were in the paths. After fixing and redoing, he passed from cancer. His wife had told me she would find the letters and photos , of which he and I spoke , as he had a big office full of papers and books and photos to sort through. And I understand and respect the need for time THEN going through someone elses papers and such, I KNOW what an ordeal that can be. SO be patient and we might have photos and info here to help validate this line with info and photos etc . Thanks so much ... Vickie
