From Deborah Cavel-Greant []

"The Casiahs/Cosiahs/Kezziahs were originally Tuscarora Indian. Some of us still are. My line of the family spoke the Tuscarora language up until my generation. We are enrolled members of the Tuscarora Tribe.

"The Casiah name is found in the early history of Bertie, Chowan and Hertford Counties of NC. Unlike many European surnames adopted and used by the Tuscarora, Casiah appears to have been drawn directly from Skarure, the Tuscaroran's Native language.

Blair Rudes Tuscarora English Dictionary
-(i)yhnu- : ke,'yhnu:? literal translation , Colonial records (Gallatin - refering to Cashie (Cash-eye) River -

"The pronunciation of ke,'yhnu:? is: keh-hsh-ungh with a glottal stop on the end. This shows why Quishia, Kizziah, Keziah, Coziah, or Cashiah could have been good choices to represent the spelling, and why it was hard to pin down an exact spelling.

"The Cashia name enters land records in Chowan Co NC in 1707. John Lawson refered to the Cashia River in his 1709 book as the "Keja" River. There are over 25 documented variations of the spelling of Casiah in the Deed books of Chowan, Bertie and Rowan counties, including 'Quishia'."
