Biography

Misniah was the daughter of William Cannaday and Nancy Hill. He was born in Kent Count, MD and Nancy was born in VA.

In Robert Ellis research notes, he writes: At least one Cannaday researcher stated that there were Quakers among the early Cannaday immigrants. The movement of the family within Maryland supports this belief. However, it appears that William Cannaday, if he were ever a Quaker, left the group. His son James fought in the Revolutionary War, and Misniah was not a Quaker. Also, there seem to be an oral tradition within the Cannaday family that Misniah was part Native American, even an Indian Princess. To that, one researcher (Susan Shackelford) wrote in July 1999:

“…I don't know of any documentation which shows that Misniah was Indian much less a PRINCESS. I have probably researched this family more than any living person, and have done so for over forty years (yes, I started young and involved my husband and sons and learned a lot from my grandmother whose mother was an Underwood. My grandmother died at age 88).” [1]
