Thanks so much for posting this on the Lacys. My Jim Sinor's mother was a
Lacy by birth - born in Bedford Co., Virginia in the late 1780s. The Siners
left Bedford Co., went to Greene Co., Tennessee and on into Bradley Co.,
Tennessee, near the Georgia border and home to the Cherokee by the 1840s.
She then migrated to Marion Co., Arkansas in the mid 1850s, as a widow with
three of her sons.........one being my gggrandfather - Jim.
All I know about Nancy Lacy is that she had a sister named Mary that married
Robert Siner - same family and that her mother was named Sary (Sarah?) and
gave consent to her marriage to John Siner, Jr.
Her father might be a Stephan Lacy.
Note to file: John Siner and Nancy Lacy, daughter of Sary. George Siner,
Surety. Henshaw's Quaker Genealogy V.6. "Marriage Bonds of Bedford Co.,
Virginia,-11, 18, 1810."
Note to file: MARRIAGE BONDS OF BEDFORD CO, VIRGINIA (GS F896772)
1800-1853, page 142, Siner, John and Lacy, Nancy - 28 November 1810 - Sary
Lacy, mother and George Siner. Note: George is a brother to John.
I would dearly love to know who her Lacys were. Although I doubt that she
migrated to Arkansas with other Lacy family members - this Robert Lacy just
might be connected - ya never know. But, per the Goodspeed's memoir that
you posted, he was a North Carolinian, right?
Nancy Lacy Siner died in Marion Co., while living with her youngest son; Jim
Sinor and family. She was last found in the 1870 census and was an aged 89
years at that time. She is buried in the Colfax Cemetery there in present
day Baxter County.
I always welcome any informations about Lacys, so I appreciate it.
