Rhoda Pierce/Peirce/Pearce - Born about 1820, probably Eastern NC

Surnames: Pierce, Pearce, Peirce, Moore, Magee, McGee
I am trying to locate information about Rhoda Pierce, my third great-grandmother. Oral history is that she was a White woman who got pregnant by an Indian and had to give her child away. My great-great grandfather David Pierce (b. 1844) was bonded to a couple in Plymouth (James and Eliza McGee/Magee)who owned a grocery store/boarding house. I don't know whether the bond would have been filed in Washington County (in which case it was destroyed by fire) or in another county of Eastern NC where Rhoda may have resided.

David's Beaufort County marriage license reflects his mother's name as Rhoda Pierce and his father's name as Charles Moore.

If anyone has any information or suggestions which may be helpful, please let me know. I have located a Mulatto Rhoda Pierce in Beaufort County, but based upon information David gave my great-aunt, I do not think she is David's mother.
