I have a Louisa Rice but I have never discovered to whom she is married. My Louisa Rice is the daughter of William Robert Rice & Parilee ?. She is Louisa J. Rice born Jan. 1899. If this sounds right correspond at:

Larry, thanks for replying, but our Louisa/Louiza Rice was born about 1819, so much too old.

Surnames: McCoy
Nelda: I have a passing interest in the McCoy family name. I am not related but am interested because of a possible Cherokee connection. Alexander McCoy was the last chief of the Cherokees at New Echota, GA. McCoy was 1/16 Cherokee so his family had intermarried for a few generations.

Any family lore about Andrew McCoy having NA blood? Possible name connection to Andrew Jackson?

I found Andrew and Louisa in the 1870 census at Pleasant Grove, an area near Big Coon Creek there in Jackson County. I assume you have seen the record?

If not, you may be able to access this link.

There were Cherokees and Cherokee Reservations (farms) in this area. But most were pushed out or left long before the 1870's.

Andrew Jackson McCoy was my husbands GGGrandfather. He was m. to Louiza Rice. He fought in the Florida Indian War in 1837. He died abt 1892 & Louiza was destitute. She applied for a pension from the War. It discribed A.J. McCoy as being 5ft10in. It said he had black eyes, dark hair, & dark complexion, so sounds as if he may have had Indian blood. She was turned down, as A.J. went by several nick names and they couldn't decide if she was married to the correct McCoy who served in the Indian War. This pension form was sent to me by another McCoy researcher, & I researched the names on it untill I discovered he was my husbands ancestor.
