Need help with finding last name for Elizabeth Pierce about 1811 unknown maiden name. Her husband was Stephen Pierce born about 1810. She was born in NC and he in VA. They raised their family for the most part in Meigs County, moved to Franklin County, IL between the 1860 & 1870 census.
Some of their children stayed in IL and others moved on to Arkansas from there. My Stephen ALFRED Pierce, my great-great grandfather and their son married in IL but moved to White County Arkansas.
We were told she was Indian by my grandmother. She was my grandmother's great grandmother. You can really see the Indian heritage on my great grandmother's face in her photos.
WHERE do we start in Meigs County trying to find WHO Elizabeth was and give her a name?
