I am looking for information on daughter and grnadchildren of Willie and Charlotte Ricks. Their daughter Penniniah? Ricks married Lawrence Sory in 1833. They had 3 children Dorsey W. Sorey, Francis Sorey, and James T. Sorey that are in the 1850 census with Willie and CHarlotte and Their mother. I assume Lawrence Sorey had died somewhere between 1846-1847 since the youngest child in the census was 3. Dorsey died in 1863 at age 23 in the war, but I cannot locate the other 2 children past 1850. I also cannot locate their mother. Maybe she remarried and is under a different name in 1860 census?

Hoping someone knows where I might find them in 1860 and what happened to the children?

Please Help.
And by chance that anyone might know more information on Lawrence Sorey's death or if there was a will? I cannot find one.
