George Zollicoffer Jr. and Abigail Nicholson
Posted by: Rick Gray (ID *****2720) Date: July 01, 2004 at 17:05:15

I am looking for information on George B. Zollicoffer Jr. and Abigail Nicholson who married in Williamson County, Tn on 18 Dec 1810. George was born 14 Feb 1870 in Halifax County, North Carolina and died 8 Jul 1843. I am not sure where he died but the next record of I have of Abigail is in 1850 in Lafayette County, Mississippi. Abigail is listed as being born about 1790 in Halifax County, North Carolina. I have found her on the 1850 census as noted above. Then in 1860 and 1870 she is in Ellis County, Texas. I have not located in 1880 so I am assuming she died sometime after 1870 but before 1880. She was 77 years old in 1870 indicating a birth of about 1793.

I have seen the following children listed as thier children - William Ferdinand Zollicoffer (1818-1861), Amanda Nicholson Zollicoffer (?), Nancy Lindsey Zollicoffer (?), Bostir Willade Zollicoffer (?). I have not found record of these kids listed with the family on any census record so just have the internet sources for them. Listed with Abigail in 1850 are Edward Christopher Zollicoffer, James Calvin Zollicoffer, and Oscar Mortimore Zollicoffer. In 1870 she is living with James and his family in Ellis County. LIving in Hill County, Texas is the family of Edward Zollicoffer.

The 1820 census indicates that there were 3 daughters born between 1810 and 1820 and 1 son. The son would be William if internet sources are right. I am assuming 2 of the girls are Amanda and Nancy but am not sure who the 3rd daughter would be.

I am not sure where the dates have come from on William as I have not been able to locate him in 1850 or 1860. I have looked in Maury County where the family lived as well as Mississippi and Texas where the family went after George died.

Any info on this family would be great. So far I just have the Internet sources and the few census records I have located. They are not a direct line for me but are in my line through George Zollicoffer's grandmother, Anna Lindsay.

Thanks in advance for any help.
