Jerome Brackenridge parents: Thomas Brackenridge and Nancy Atkinson

Jerome Brackenridge (spelled Breckenridge by some of his descendants) was born in Warrick County, Indiana 11 May 1841. He married 1st Elizabeth McCord and after her death married 2nd Angie Garwood. His second marriage record shows that his parents were Thomas Brackenridge and Nancy Atkinson

Our family folklore says that Jerome's parents died when he was very young and that he was raised by grandparents on his mother's side. Other folklore says that his parents never married.

I am trying now to identify his parents other that just by name. Census records for Jerome show that his father was from Kentucky and his mother Indiana. I found a Nancy Atkinson in Warrick County that marries a Hougland. I also find a John Atkinson who lived in that area. There is also a Thomas Brackenridge in that area. I haven't been able to connect any of them with Jerome.

Hoping that someone has some additional information that will help solve the mystery.

I would also be very interested in being contacted by any of Jerome's descendants.
