Looking for a possible connection between the 3 Wix families listed in the 1830 Union Co SC Census:
Elijah Wix(E. Weeks in 1840) Jermiah Wix(Jeremiah Weeks in 1840) John Wix(no John Wix/Wicks/Weeks in 1840)
and the 3 Wix orphans found in the 1850 Union Co., SC Census
Nancy(b. 1833)…living with Marshal Bennett family John(b. 1834)…living with Elmore Bishop family (farm labor) Milly (Emillee Louisa)(b. 1835)…living with Absolom Bishop family Note:abt. 1854 she married Elisha Marion Sparks of the same county.
I would dearly like to identify the parents of these children – any pointers on where to look and tidbits about these folks will be most welcome.
