I am the ggg granddaughter of an Alzira Wallis, born about 1821 in White TN. She married William Doyle, also from White TN. I am trying to ascertain whether her father was Laban Wallis. Laban's father left him several slaves, one of which is listed as a "negro girl" named "Alziry".
In all the Ancestry family trees, Alzira is listed as the daughter of Laban, but I do not find any actual evidence that he had a daughter named Alzira....so I'm thinking she may have been the slave girl. However, to make things more confusing, I find Alzira DEFINITELY living as a free woman, listed as white, in Louisiana in 1850.
Does anyone have Alzira in their tree, or any info at all?
