Looking for information on my 2x great grandparents James Ennis and Louise or Louisa McAdory Richardson Ennis [closed]

+4 votes
Here is what I know. James Ennis waso born about 1832 in possibly North Carolina. He later was in Alabama where he met and married Louise or Louisa McAdory. Louise was born between 1832-1840 in I think Alabama near Mobile. She was previously married to a Richardson and had at least 2 daughters Irene Richardson and Mettie Richardson who I think married a last name Kitts. After she married James they moved to Lincoln County, MS. I don't know if their children were born in Alabama or Mississippi. Their children were Josephine "Josie" Mary Ennis born 06/28/1878 and died 12/09/1945 she married a James Prentiss Dyess born 02/01/1867 died 02/09/1961. She had 3 brothers George W Ennis born 1872 died 09/19/1930 and married a Mamie Lofton born 1883 died 10/27/1962, William T Ennis born 08/04/1872 ( possible Twin of George) died 04/12/1926 and John born about 1873 and unknown on death. I can find no further information on James and Louise or her other children besides Josephine who is my great grandmother.
