It sees terribly sad that the distinct groups of the Pocus family cannot connect. There is no doubt that John Pocus was naturalized in Mobile Alabama and he listed his entry as Sicily and he was a barber. He disappeared from the Mobile records c. 1870 but his presence is vindicated by census records that have been published. JOHN POCUS married Mary Dorrel in Franklin County Tennessee in 1871. OK - He married Maria Broyles in Mobile in 1856 and had children. The fact remains that John left before 1870. So, we have two families that seem not to agree. We need to open up the discussion to include my thesis - that John Pocus did indeed abandon his family in Mobile, Alabama.
Surely there is some way to rumount this problem.
