Louisa P. McKenzie and William Wiley Davis are my ggg-gparents. I guess that makes my father second cousins with your wife??

My father's grandmother is Connie Ortense Davis, daughter of Louisa P. McKenzie and Wm. Davis. I am trying to find out more information on Louisa P. McKenzie, but I don't know the names of her parents. I know that Louisa and William W. Davis were married in 1857 in Monroe County, Alabama, and I understand Louisa was born in Georgia, but I've also been told she was born in SC. I can't find her in any census so far to verify where she was born.
