I am attempting to get through "a brick wall" on my Nix family.My ancestors are Obediah Nix and Luvicy/Lavicy Bruce.They married about 1819 in Tennessee.Their first child, my ancestor, Mary Arminda Nix, was born in the Western District of Tennessee in what is now Madison County, in May 1820.
No one knows who Luvicy's parents are.On one census she stated she was born in North Carolina, others in Tennessee.
Information we do have - though I can not say how accurate it is, states the following:
A Jennings girl married a Bruce boy andhad a son Adrian Bruce.
Adrian Bruce married an ADAIR(possibly a first name beginning withM) and had a girl Luvicy (alsopossibly a son Mannon Bruce, andothers?)Adrian's name couldpossibly have been Andrew.
Luvicy Bruce married Obediah Nix.
As you can see this is not nearly enough to go on.Without at least a name to start with it is very hard.Any information, no matter how small, to help us get through this brick wall will be appreciated.I am posting this message on this Board, the Jennings Board and also the Nix board in the hopes someone can help.
