I wonder if your Louisa A. TICER's middle name is Adelaide? My g-g-grandmother, Louisa TYCER (b 1822 probably Dickson Co., TN; d after 1900 probably Crawford Co., MO) married Thomas M. WHEELER in 1841 in Dickson Co., TN. Louisa was the daughter of Ellis TYCER and Rachel STANSBURY. Ellis and Rachel had eight children of which four have been identified. Another daughter (possibly named Martha) looms on the horizon.
Around 1846, Thomas WHEELER and Louisa TYCER migrated to Wayne Co., TN settling in an area very close to Hardin Co., TN. They had five children. They named their oldest, a daughter, Louisa Adelaide WHEELER. She went by the name Adelaide.
Another TYCER appears in the 1850 Hardin Co., TN Census. Mary TYCER, age 57 b SC, along with three children, Polly M., age 19 b AL; William, age 16, farmer, b AL, and Monerva S. (or L.?) age 3 b TN. I suspect Mary was the widow of one of the older "unknown" TYCER sons.
The NESBITT family is also in Hardin Co., TN having migrated from Dickson Co., TN. It is thought that the oldest TYCER daughter, Martha, married John NESBITT. Their second son was named Ellis Tycer NESBITT. Work goes on with regard to Martha.
The other identified TYCER daughter is Letticia TYCER (b 1818) who married John W. RAGAN who by 1855 migrated to Dallas, TX. They named their oldest daughter Louisa Adelaide RAGAN.
I am not concerned about the different spelling of TICER/TYCER as I am told they are interchangeable. My family lore says Ellis was French or his people came from France.
It seems more than coincidental that so many "Louisa A.s" show up in connection to the name TICER/TYCER. I hope there is some connection and look forward to hearing from you.
