Looking for the parents and any other information on the family of John Koonce and wife, Mahala, who were on the 1850 census for Lewis County, TN along with their 12 children. John was born about 1803 in TN and Mahala was born about 1809 in NC. In 1850 they had children:
Rebecca E., dau, 18, TN
Henry J., son, 16, TN (b. 23 Dec 1833)
Sarah J., dau, 14, TN
Edward D., son, 13, TN
Nancy Caroline, dau, 11, TN (b. 11 Mar 1839)
Margaret, dau, 9, TN
George W., son, 7, TN
Eliza J., dau, 7, TN(twin of George)
Thomas J., son, 5, TN
Anna L., dau, 4, TN
William Langdon, son, 4 mos., TN
Susan C. A., dau, 4 mos., TN(twin of William)
Nancy Caroline Koonce married Henry Moore Hays 10 Dec 1856 in Shelby County, TN and they moved to Lonoke County, AR where they raised a large family. I have their children with dates if anyone is interested.
Thanks for any help anyone may have on the Koonce family.
