Looking for information on the WINGO family (Brothers Simon, Joshua, and Daniel) originally of Gibson County TN; relocating to Massac County IL by 1880. Two of the brothers married sisters from the BRYANT family (Marinda Bryant m. Simon, and Joshua Wingo married Cassaundra Bryant). There is a George Bryant whom I believe is their brother, also living in Massac in 1880. I believe their mother was Nancy Bryant.
My Bryant family was from Walker County, GA, relocating to Union County IL 1850. Union is a neighboring community to Massac, and one of my Bryants married one of the Massac County Wingo sons, so I believe the Massac Bryants are connected to my Bryants. Both families were listed as mulatto on the census records. If anyone has information they can share, it would be much appreciated!! Megan
