    Eads,Collins,Massey,Archer -Trying to find Blackfoot family

    I am trying to help a friend who has Blackfoot in him. He could be a good mix of Blackfoot & Melungeon.
    I will give you a lineage of these names I just mentioned. These are his great great grandparents.

    Elisha C. Collins (counted as Mulatto on census's) b. 1830 TN d. TN Married 1)Nancy Hall (Married 16 MAR 1847,Wilson TN) Children: Lousianna Eads
    2)Esther Archer b. 1825 (Married 28 JUN 1850, Wilson TN) Children: Wilson,Perry,Priscilla,Thomas and Mary

    I have a DNA cousin who I've tied to our Blackfoot side (A087877 on GedMatch) who I believe is descended from this line. Her gg-grandparent Walter Nickens is a descendant of George Nickens b.1839 Wilson TN - 1925 and Catherine 'Kate' Collins b.1843. Walter Nickens is the son of George Nickens and Elizabeth Archer.

    According to Lloyd Collins this is the family of Carrol Jackson Nickens and Nancy Jane Collins.
