If anyone could help me I would appreicate it; I am searching for the parents of Nixon M. Hancock, iinformation on Sarah Perdue, and Nancy Jane Collins

Nixon M. Hancock was born in South Carolina (where in SC - I do not know)
He married a Sarah Perdue in Bibb County, Georgia (Census 1850) January 30, 1836

In the 1790-1890 Census
Nixon M. Hancock, Georgia, Bibb County, Township: Rutlands District; page 645

In the 1850 US Census
Nixon Hancock; Georgia, Bibb County, Township: #481. page 183

He and Sarah had 6 children:
Missouri Hancock (F) - b. 1835 - Bibb Cty
William Hancock (M) - b. 1838 - Bibb Cty
Mary Hancock (F) - b. 1840 - Bibb Cty
Elizabeth Hancock (F) b.1843 - Bibb Cty
John Hancock (M) b. 1845 - Bibb Cty
Charles J. (Jasper?) Hancock b. April, 1847 - Bibb Cty

In the 1870 Census Nixon is shown as M.M. Hancock; age 59, living in Savannah, GA, Chatham Cty. He is married to a Mary Ann Brown. Mary is about 20 years younger than Nixon. They are married December 13, 1857 in Bibb Co, GA. They had 2 children: Robert Hancock (cannot find him anywhere else) and a Sarah V. Hancock.

After Nixon died January, 1873 in Chatham Co., Savannah, GA he is buried in Laurel Grove Cemetery there.

Mary Ann Brown remarried a John Turner.

Charles J. Hancock m. Nancy Jane Collins 1/5/1871 in Chatham Cty, Savannah, GA

Any help you can give me would be appreicated.
