SC to Jones Co., MS early 1800s Evan ELLZEY & wife, Mary COLLINS?

I am still trying to find more information on the wife of Evan ELLZEY who came from South Carolina to Jones County, Mississippi where they were in the 1800s. I have been told that there is a family Bible that shows her with the name of Mary COLLINS but that's all I know.

I descend from them through their daughter, Harriet ELLZEY, who married John LEWIS, born: abt. 1800, (son of Howell LEWIS and Nancy COPELAND, (daughter of Ripley COPELAND, Sr. and wife, Rachael TUCKER,)) then from Harriet and John through their daughter, Rachael Moranda "Randa/Randi" LEWIS COLEMAN BRIGHT PARKER, born: 1851 in Jones County, Mississippi. I have been told that Rachael Moranda married both known husbands under the name of COLEMAN but still don't know why. She married John Wesley BRIGHT and later my 2nd great grandfather, Spencer B. PARKER, born: 1859 in either Smith or Rankin County, Mississippi.

If anyone has anything on this please contact me. Thank you.
