Elias Wallis Sr. AND Laban Wallis of White, TN AND Alzira Wallis

Surnames: Wallis, Doyle
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?

Hi,
You need to find Laban White's probate records and look for a daughter Alzira in the probate records.

I don't think she was African American and living free in 1850 Bossier Parish, LA and 1860 in Jefferson Co. Arkansas. Successful Searching!
