Can you tell me how Nancy Siniard (born abt 1810 N.C)who married Harris Brock (born abt 1812 N.C)fit into this.Harris and Nancy both allegedly born in Buncombe Co. N.C.They are listed in the 1850 DeKalb Ala. census.Harris Brock allegedly the son of either Reuben or Hiram Brock, both of Buncombe N.C.Hiram Brock shown in a bunch of Brocks and Siniards in the 1820 Buncombe census. Side by side in that group are John and Jos. "Sinard" and both show 2 girls in their houses of Nancy Siniard Brock's age.
For numerous reasons, I believe my Lavina Nicholson (born abt 1796 S.C.) might have been a Brock or Sinard and closely related to either Harris Brock or his wife Nancy Siniard.Lavina and husband James Nicholson (born 1793)probably married in Buncombe N.C. where James was raised and served in the militia in 1814-15.The Nicholsons are two doors from the Brocks in 1850 Dekalb.When their sons Mercer and Thomas Nicholson move to Sharp Co. Arkansas, Nancy Sinard Brock's son Willis Jasper Brock accompanies them.W.J. Brock is enumerated twice in the 1860 census--both in Mercer Nicholson's house and a couple of pages away and next door to Thomas Nicholson.
Also, other relatives of James and Lavina Nicholsons show up earlier by Brocks or Siniards in censi in N.C. and Ga. over a 40 or 50 year span.
In summary, I'm searching for Nancy Siniard Brock's (Mrs Harris Brock) parents and siblings.Also, trying to prove whether Lavina (c 1796-post 1860) Nicholson of Dekalb Co. Ala. was a relative of Nancy Siniard Brock.
