My wife is Frances Hancock and we are trying to do some research on her family. Her dad was Thomas Elbert Hancock born in 1900 in Union County NC. His Father was John Thomas Hancock born ?? 1862 died 1900 married Effie Rosetta Pigg both buried First Baptist Church Pageland South Carolina. I noticed that you had a John, Thomas & Elbert in your linage. Since Elbert isn't a very common name I was wondering if there may be some connections.
