I'm looking for the parents of Ellender (Ellen or sometimes called Nellie) Bright, she was born in 1827. In May 23, 1850 she married Mansfield Massey in Benton County, TN. They had the following children:
Columbus Massey, b. 1852 Sarah Massey, b. 1853 Samuel Massey, b.1854 Clark Pinkney Massey, November 30, 1859 James (Brown)Massey, b.1862 Mansfield P. Massey, b.December 30, 1864 (my grandfather)
In the 1870 census it listed Ellen Massey as head of house, Columbus, Sarah, Samuel, Pinkney, Jinner, and Mansfield. I haven't checked the 1880 census to see if they were still there.
I would welcome any help in finding my g-grandmother's parents, or any information on her children. Thanks.
