The BARBER FAMILY Bible shows that NANCY BROCK married Elkanah Morris

Elkanah Morris born April 24, 1826
Sarah Rebecca Morris Aug. 1, 1853
Joseph Henderson Morris Sept. 24, 1855
Simeon Valentine Morris Jan. 15, 1858
(Elkanah Morris married Nancy Brock and the three children
above are the children of this union.Elkanah Zuma F. Magee)

E. L. MORRIS and Nancy are listed in the 1860 Census for Washington Parish, Louisiana.

1860 CENSUS: Palestine PO, Washington Parish, LA; Series: M653, Roll: 426, Page: 819, Line 32, Family 373/364; E. L. MORRIS. male, age 33, born in MS, parents born in LA; Nancy MORRIS, female, age 25, born in MS; Sarah R. MORRIS, female, age 6, born in LA; Joseph H. MORRIS, male, age 4, born in LA and Simeon V. MORRIS, male, age 3, born in LA.

Sometime after 1860, Elkanah (E. L.) Morris died. By 1870, NANCY BROCK MORRIS had remarried. She became the 3rd wife of THOMAS JAMES MILLER.
Thomas James Miller 1st and second wife were sisters Marritty and Mattie Rea DILLON.

RAIFORM MILLER married ANGELINE BROCK,; Angeline was a daughter of James Brock & Elizabeth Purvis. Angeline is buried in the Thad Miller Cemetery
Warnerton , Washington Parish, Louisiana.

Her tombstone CONFIRMS that she is a daughter of James & Elizabeth BROCK.

TOMBSTONE: MILLER, ANGELINE BROCK, no dates, w/o RAFEFORD MILLER, d/o James and Elizabeth Purvis Brock

Raiford's father was Thompson Miller. Clara Ginn, wife of Thompson Miller, parents were Jeptha Ginn and Penina Magee.

The BROCK, MILLER, MORRIS, GINN and DILLON are all related.

Can someone close to this family confirm that ANGELINE BROCK, wife of Raiford Miller and NANCY BROCK wife of Elkanah MORRIS & Thomas James MILLER are SISTERS and daughters of James & Elizabeth BROCK.
