I am searching for the parents of Henry Witt, born in 1843, in Livingston, Al. I have the census that says his father was born in North Carolina or Virginia and his mother was born in Alabama. Henry married two sisters (Jane Clay & Morning(Moanan) Clay and had a total of 11 or 12 children.
I have Henry with his wife Jane on the 1870 Sumter County, Alabama census with their children. On the 1880 Sumter County, Alabama census, he is married to Morning (Moaning-Moanan Clay). I also would love to be able to verify Jane and Morning heritage. I have been told they were Cherokee indians. On the census they are listed as mulatto.
I have been searching for a long time and have not been able to go any futher. Can someone please help?
I am trying to research the possibility of there being a plantation in North Carolina or Alabama in which the owner/owners name was Jolly or Jolley. I am a descendent of a family of Jollys who originated from these two state. In the 1880 census it has my great great grandfather (Alfred Jolly-DOB abt 1834-NC) listed as a farmer in Bluff Port, Sumter, AL and his family (Betty Stewart Jolly, Elizabeth-wife, Mary Ferrell-wife)Sam, Johnson, Foster, U.S. Grant, Anna, Sarah, Robert, Charles, Salina, Cora, Rachel May,James Kinnard, Laura May, Rilla A-Mulatto & Martha Williamson) as farm hands or were children at that time. Mary was listed as a housekeeper. Alfred Jolly was listed as being born in NC. However most of his children were born in Livingston, AL. Rachel May was listed as a farmer, also. All of them lived in the same area or plantation in Bluff Port – Precinct 10-Livingston, AL. If you have any information on any of these people or know of a plantation in NC or AL in which my family could have come from please contact me. If you think you may be a descendant of anyone listed above please contact me immediately.
