I am researching the maternal CARTER/WILEY and paternal REESE/DAVIS families. The most distant relation I have found, going back five generations, is my maternal third great-grandmother, MELISSA WARREN (nee Briscoe) who was a runaway slave, fleeing Palmyra, Missouri with a party of other slaves which included her daughter, EMMA LOUISA ALEXANDER, my second great-grandmother and LOUIS CASS CARTER, my second great-grandfather to Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois. I am also researching the following family surnames: WILEY/WORLDS from the Memphis/Shelby County, Tennessee and adjoining Mississippi area (second and third great-grandparents).
Paternally, I am researching the ancestors of my paternal grandparents, Delroy Reese and Evelyn Davis who resided in Callaway County, Missouri. The Davis ancestors were from Starkville, Oktibbeha County, Mississippi. My third great-grandparents Reese, Davis and Williams would also have been slaves.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am also willing to share any information I have gathered.
