Monix Brick Wall

I believe one conundrum I'm tackling is a genuine brick wall. No matter how many times I revisit my Monix line, I can't trace backwards past 1910. Here's the family:

George Monix (b.Aug. 6, 1868 - d.Nov. 28, 1950) - described by my fmamily as a very fair-skinned man with almost straight hair and Native-American features; George's son Golden Monix described George's father as "the Indian"; George was born in Uniontown, Perry Co., AL (death cert.)
--Resided in Washington Co., MS in 1910 (census)
--Moved to Duncan, Bolivar Co., MS ca. 1916 (death cert.)

Father: Jasper "Daddy Jack" Monix - according to oral history a Native American man used as a stud/ breeder
Mother: According to oral history, a slave woman bought in New Orleans who was very dark and spoke little English

Wife: Mary Jones (b.1868); married ca. 1890
Dau.: Alberta Monix b: 1894 in MS
Son: Clarence Clifton Monix b: 3 AUG 1896 in Dunleith, Washington Co., MS
Dau.: Daisy Monix b: NOV 1899
Dau.: Mary Monix
Son: Tyree Monix b: NOV 1903
Son: Golden Monix b: 14 AUG 1906 in Dunleith, Washington Co., MS

I can find them in 1910 (as Munnicks) and later census records, but not in 1900, even with soundex. Any suggestions?
