I am looking for information on the descendants and ancestry of Jacob S. Wise and Louisa George, who built a house about 1830 - 1840 in Greenwood, just outside of Shreveport Louisianna.
If anything looks familiar here -- please contact me with any more clues.
The house is now listed on the LA historic properties with photo online, and says that it is the Flournoy-Wise house, once built by Jacob Wise, and great grandson Lucien Flournoy lives there.I have not been able to reach Lucien.I am a ggchild of Jacob's daughter Mary Frances Wise who married Edw. Beverly Herndon.I would like to know where Jacob and his wife came from and their ancestors.
Jacob may have come from Augusta Co., VA.
Other clues -- a Henry Alexander Wise was Gov of VA in the mid 1800s, and won against a Flournoy who headed the "Know Nothing" Party. he was also a child of a second wife and second group of children of a John Wise.Mary Frances' daughter married an Alexander and moved to Charlotte NC where Mr. Herndon had purchased property.
