Ailsey Jane Oxendine
Lumbee American Indians

Ailsey Jane Oxendine is the oldest of four children of Wilson Oxendine and an unknown wife. These children were -

Ailsey Jane Oxendine (b 1835 TN)
Elizabeth Oxendine (b 1840 TN)
Margaret Oxendine (b 1841 TN)
Julian Oxendine (b 1845 TN)

We trace our roots to Elizabeth Oxendine.

Ailsey Jane Oxendine was born in 1835 TN. There are also references to 1837.

Nothing is known of Wilson / Hilson's first wife / lover. In 1850, Wilson and his 3 daughters (but no mother) were together. Here is a record of Hilson

Oxendine, Hilson TN Jackson County 9th Civil District 1850 885 185

In this 1850 record, "Hilson" Oxendine is a mulatto blacksmith who cannot read or write. He is 40, born in 1810. The female in the house is Nancy Burton, 24, maybe from SC? Three female children are Alsey aged 14 (1835), Margaret aged 9 (1841), and Julia aged 5 (1845). All kids were born in Tennessee. It seems unlikely that Nancy is all of the kids' mom as she would be aged 10 when Alsey was born.

1860 Census
In 1860, Wilson, was off with a new family in Kentucky. The 4 Oxendine daughters were each off in new separate households. Here is the record of Ailsey with her husband, James Walker. They are farmers. With them is Ailsey's younger sister, Margaret, now 18. Note that Margaret is tagged with a "M" as in Mulatto, meaning colored/mixed race.

> There is a good chance of finding a female line in her descendants!
> Another photograph of her husband in his store has a couple of clues

> An 89 yr old lady in Alabama had the pictures ... she can't remember
> where the Tibbits lived but does remember when they came for a visit
> they always stayed at least a week. Must have traveled some distance.
