I was reading the book about The History Of The Cherokee Nation, I came across a Dove Piercefield that married a John M. Countryman. This name Countryman was in the old families and genealogy under Ward. His mother was a Martha Ward. The reason I am interested in these names is that my maid name is Piercefield and I married a Ward! If anyone knows anything about this Dove Piercefield let me know. I think she was born about 1850. I have only genealogy back to my Great gr.father which is William Henry Piercefield. I'm sure there is a connection some how!
