I am searching for information on the family of William and Nicy (WARD) MIZELL (or MEASLES). William was born October 7, 1798 in Bertie County, North Carolina, married Nicy WARD there and came to Massac County, Illinois by 1840. He died there on May 15, 1850. Children may include John W., born ~1818; Denby, born ~1822; Abner, (1829-1863); Barbary, born ~1832; Harriett, born ~1837; Jeremiah, born ~1823; Mary, born ~1842; and Josiah (1845-1909).
I will share information with anyone who answers this query.
