Anyone have Adaline [Hathcock] Almond (bn ~1832) in their tree?

I'm curious about the 1900 Census for Adaline Almond (Stanly, NC), as it shows a Henry Bird as a servant in her household. I can't help but wonder if this is my grandfather Henry, but...he was full-blood Cherokee, not White as enumerated on this Census. The 1870 census for Adaline Hathcock shows her to be mulatto, so I'm wondering if there was a family connection to her family and that of my grandfather Bird/Byrd. Otherwise, why would this young white male be a servant in her home? I know that henry was born in 1884 in Wayne County, N.C., so the age for this Henry is a close match

It's no secret that most Indians chose to hide their heritage (especially from Enumerators), but my grandfather finally declared his hertigae on his 1930 Census (Anderson County, TN).

If you have Adaline in your tree, would you have any idea who this Henry Bird was?

Best regards,
Steve
