Louvicey Artis Aldridge.


Vicey was little, rawboned-ed.  With a peaked nose, and she was more Indian color.  But she had that pretty hair.  I remember her when she used to come to Wilson.  She come up there visiting once in a while.  Vicey was, ahh ….  You remember Josephine Sherrod?  Well, she was lighter than her.  But she had that peaky nose and had nice hair.


This is my grandmother’s description of her paternal grandmother, Louvicey Artis Aldridge. Josephine Artis Sherrod was Louvicey’s half-sister — and niece. Their father was Adam T. Artis. After the death of Vicey’s mother, Adam married Amanda Aldridge, sister of Vicey’s husband John W. Aldridge.

    Lisa, you are awesome! I find myself unable to leave the computer when I get on this site. I currently work with two (that I know of) descendants of Soloman Williams and Vicey Artis, one descendant from Adam through the Aldridge family and on from the Richard Artis. Absolutely fasinating!
