Mahala Sikes widow of Jonathan Sikes found in Pike County in 1840 in Alabama Census with son and in Barbour County 1850, she was born 1774 and died around 1850. We are trying to find out what happened to her, she is part of our lineage. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Also there was a Kenneth Sikes researching this family from Tennessee, anyone knowing how to contact him would be appreciated.
I think I have discovered who the husband of Mahala Sykes was and where they lived in NC. My interest stems from the fact that my father matches five descendants of this Mahala through her son John genetically. My Dad descends from several Sykes families in Orange Co., NC. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if still interested.
