Thaddeus C. BRUCE
Zilpha PHILLIPS
Note:  A descendant of Thaddeus C. BRUCE has been tested for the BRUCE Y-DNA Surname Project at FamilyTreeDNA.  He is a 36/37 marker match for a descendant of George BRUCE (c1633-1692) meaning they share a fairly recent common ancestor, though a paper connection has yet to be made.  These two match no one else in the BRUCE project (as of 30 Sep 2006); thus, this BRUCE line is not a genetic match with descendants of Robert the Bruce (1274-1329), King of Scotland, who are Haplogroup R1b1.

There's no apparent genealogical connection between the COX's and our subjects.  Listed next to daughter [Mary] Angeline BRUCE (see next source), who is next to son William C. BRUCE.

Angline Bruce 19 F         Conn
Listed between her parents and her brother, William C. BRUCE.  It's actually unlikely that they were in separate domiciles and more likely the enumerator was mis-using the visitation numbers.
