Dancy Family Genealogy Forum
I am also descended from Neil Alexander Dancy and Rilda "Riley" Cox. I descend from their daughter Amelda Mae "Meldie" Dancy Stidhams. She is my grandmother's grandmother. There is a site off of the Ashe Co. GenWeb project where someone listed Jesse Cox and his descendants. It's called the Heritage of Jesse Cox. It's in the Historical New River Valley Notes section.
It says (and I've seen other sources) that Jesse Cox and Thursey Harper Cox are Riley's parents. John Dancy and Rachel Johnson are Neil Dancy's parents. All of Ashe Co.
I noticed your last name is Childress. I descend from Childers' and Adams' in Ashe Co., on my grandpa's (Johnson) side of the family. Do you have Childress' in Ashe Co?
