Hello, I am researching the Conner family of Jones County, also listed as "mulatto" due to Native American ancestry. The Morgan or Morgain family lived beside or near my family for many years and the name shows up as witness to land deeds, etc. in my Conner family's paperwork.
I have a theory that the Pinkney Conner who married my ancestor, Eliza Conner in 1857 was actually the Pinkney Morgain listed in the 1850 census as the son of Owen and Ciddy Morgain. There is no Pinkney Conner listed before the 1857 marriage and no Pinkney Morgain listed afterward. Do you have any info that would help confirm or deny this?
