David Jones (African American) North Carolina/Alabama

Posted: 10 Mar 2012 3:43PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Jones
I have hit a brick wall in my research. Ive been able to go as far back as my Great x4 Grandfather Dave (or David) Jones. The Alabama 1870 Census shows the following:

Born 1814
Spouse: Nicey or Nicie Born 1820 in North Carolina
Children: John, Sam, Susan and Silvia

I cannot find anything on Dave or Nicey prior to 1870. Since they were born in North Carolina Ive been searching to see if maybe they were slaves and searching slave/plantation owners by the name of Jones hoping I come across a list with his name on it. I have no idea what Nicey's maiden name is. If anyone can lead me in the right direction or give advice on where to look I would be greatly aprreciative.
