      Janelle,

      If you refer to the wife of Nicholas Fisher, who died in Greenville, SC in 1794...
      Yes, he is associated with the Cookseys in a smuch as there is a close family association. Allied families are Cooksey, Tubb, McVey, etc. And yes, our John C. Cooksey of Warren Co. Tn/Gonzales/Lampasas co, Tx. is from the Cookseys who were from Greenville, SC.

      The Fisher family historians make Nicholas' wife Elizabeth a Cooksey, although I know of no documentation or proof.

      A researchers dilemna:

      Nicholas lists a daughter Sally Cooksey on his will. This has puzzled me for some time. We don't know for certain which Cooksey this Sally was married to. Best candidates are Cornelius Cooksey, Josiah and William Cooksey. Since Josiah seems to have been widowed (divorced ?) by 1800, and re-married to Charity by 1801, he may not be the best candidate.

      We find a Sally Cooksey on the roll of church members for Enoree Baptist church in Greenville for 1801-1802, which indicates, if this is the same Sally, that Josiah is not the best choice for her husband. It would appear that Cornelius is a good choice. Anyone have other ideas?

      Virtually nothing is known of the William Cooksey of Greenville Co.

      Another possible candidate would be Andrew Cooksey Sr., although he would have been born about the same time as old Nicholas. By the way, Cornelius Cooksey is within a few doors of Nicholas Fisher on the 1790 census. The other associated Cookseys are in Edgefield County in 1790.
