  • Hi, I’m a descendant of William Holland Thomas and am writing a new book about him. DNA testing confirms that he had children with Catherine Hyde (b. 1819, Macon? Co. NC – d.1896 Swain Co). William Pendleton Hyde (and possibly his sister Eliza Hyde) are Will Thomas’s children.

    Catherine later married Michael Cline and had two children with him. If any of you are descended from Catherine Hyde, I’d love to be in touch. I’m including all his relationships and children in the book and would love to hear any family histories or stories.

    • Craig, there’s no documentation that I’m aware of for Charles Hyde dying in Hyde County, SC in 1810. Oddly enough, there were no Hydes living in Hyde County, NC in 1810 as far as I know. For whatever reason, Hydes are rare in early Hyde county. The county itself was named for Edward Hyde, 1667 – 1712, who served as the 1st Governor of NC from Jan-Sept 1712. He’s often confused with the flamboyant Edward Hyde, 3rd Earl of Clarendon, 1661 – 1723, who served as Governor of NY and NJ. Craig, having heard from you before, I’m going to hazard a guess that you’re thinking of the Charles Hyde who appeared as an old man in the 1790 census for SC. There’s a colonial reference to a “Charles Hide, planter of Lunenburg, Virginia” who may be the same man. There are several other Charles Hide/Hydes within about a 300 mile radius at that time, but I don’t want to confuse the issue. If you’ve discovered something in Hyde County, please let us know. The best person to contact is Tom, as this is also his line.

      • Tom Hyde’s information on this site is where I came up with Charles in Hyde County. I have not found anything on any Hyde’s in that county.

  • Still searching Della Hyde, daughter of Eugene Hyde of Toisnot Township, NC born 1881 died 1917. She’s the mom of my grandfather, Nick (John) Hyde born 1903 (1899) died 1981 in Durham, NC. Specifically: searching for the FATHER of Nick (John) Hyde and his siblings. Census records show Nick and siblings living with Eugene Hyde, their grandfather. Della’s name found on bastardy bonds during that time period. Just would love to know who my grandfather’s father was.

  • I am descended from Elizabeth Ann Hyde Battle sister of Catheryne Hyde. AKA Kanaka, ( Cherokee). So, from living on the Big Island, I knew that the word Kanaka, meant local Hawaiian, and as well. I have come up with a Polynesian marker in my DNA. The Kanaka name is coming down in the Little Carpenter line. Anyone else coming up with Polynesian ancestry?
