ROSENBAUM, John married Nancy ( unknown) about 1844 probably in Giles County since the ROSENAUM family was there in that time period. Need to know what her maiden name was and need to find a record of that marriage if it exists. This family moved to Arkansas and settled there about 1850-51. I will share info when connections found. Many, many thanks. Marie

Hello.I really need to know who the parents were of Samuel WILLCOXON (born 1817 or 1818 in TN). I believe he was born in the Giles/Lawrence/Maury Co. area because he was living there in 1850 before moving to Green Co. AR. I also believe he married Frances GIBSON in Giles Co. before or around 1836. My guess is that his mother is Sina (maiden name unknown, born in NC in abt 1800), and I think his father was Isaac WILLCOXSON, son of David WILCOXSON, son of John WILCOXSON who married Sarah BOONE. I also think Sina and Isaac prob. married in Giles Co. but have no proof. Any help would be very much appreciated, Thank you,
