Were Keziah Ford's Parents William & Elizabeth (Acklin) Hinds?

Was Keziah Ford known as Kesiah Hinds, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Acklin) Hinds, before her marriage?  I think so.

In 1850 William (born in Georgia in 1803) and Keziah Ford (born in Virginia in 1805) were living very near Ann L. Rice (Keziah's probable sister); only the David Ford household was between them.

Even though I've looked at the 1850 census record for Ann L. Rice (my ancestress) many, many times, it was just recently that I noticed her near neighbor's name was Kezia, and was probably her sister.  Even knowing that one should always make note of the neighbors, it still escaped my notice.
