Ankey Thomas Legg is Phillip Thomas and his wife Mary's daughter; granddaughter of William M and Ankey Thomas. I have her born May 1814 in SC, died Dec. 1888 in Vernon Parish LA. I have seen information on William M's Ankey's death in Upshur County Texas, with a list of property of "deceased Ankey Thomas," in the house of Wm Thomas. I would love to find her grave; she is supposed to be of Cherokee descent. However, I have also seen her name on another tree as "Anike." How much of the confusion is due to spelling problems, I just don't know. But my grandmother Melissa's name has been spelled at least 5 different ways.
