My grandmother was a Koonce from around Halls, TN. (Lauderdale Co.). She was one of eight children. Her mother was Joanna Reynolds, but I don't know her father's name (other than Koonce, obviously). I have some lineage that says we are connected to either James Madison Koonce or Thomas Jefferson Koonce (twins I think) both from Alabama.
If anyone can help me bridge the gap, I'd appreciate it.
