Kiah Surname Meaning

Surnames: Kiah Cadieux Caughey cadier Thibodeaux

Hello All,
Learned this year at my grandfather's funeral that his mother's name was Bertha Kiah and his grandmother was Annie Kiah. My grandfather didn't know much about his mother except that she may have had Indian heritage.

Now I'm looking for more information on the Kiah's and the origin of the last name.

My familiy is from the Eastern Shore of Maryland and there were/are quite a few Kiah's from Dorchester County MD.

My grandfather's name is Garfield Cornish.

So far I've gathered that the surname was derived from Cadieux, Caughey, Cadier, or Thibodeaux. And some of these names trace back to Canada?

Does anyone know the history behind these names?

Stephanie Cornish
