My father-in-law turns 90 years old in July, and the one thing he wanted is to know his ancestors. There had been no information attained. So I went to work and have all the ancestors we were related to until Nixon M. Hancock, born: January 6, 1812 in SC (Do not know where). He married Sarah Perdue June 30, 1836 ( I know this is correct - I have a copy of their marriage contract). They were married in Bibb Cty, GA.and they lived in Bibb Cty, Macon, GA. He died in Chatham Cty, GA on May 9, 1873 and was buried in Laurel Grove Cemetery, Section A. His occupation was a Chain Maker. They had 6 children: Missouri,born: 1835, William, born: 1838, Mary, born: 1840, Elizabeth, born: 1843, John, born: 1845, and Charles (John or Jasper) born: April, 1847. They were all born in Chatham Cty, Savannah, GA. The one we are descended from is Charles (John or Jasper) Hancock. When he died (August 2,1911)he was also buried in Laurel Grove cemetery, Lot 189 with his wife Nancy Jane Collins (died: January 10, 1921, Laurel Grove Cemetery,Lot 189 - Chatham Cty, Savannah, GA.
I am looking for, at this moment:
Parents of Nixon M. Hancock
Where in SC was Nixon born
Any information on Sarah Perdue (think she was born 1815 -GA)
More information on the other children
Charles (Jasper or John) day of his birth (April -- 1847)
Nancy Jane Collins' father's name.
Nancy Jane Collins' mother is Fannie Wright
Date of birth,place,death, place - Collins
Any help with this information would be so appreciated. Adrian Carleton Hancock turns 90 years old July 10, 2002.
