|Herrington||I would like to submit HERRINGTON . Patrick Herrington was my gggrandfather, was born in 1821 in Ireland, fought twice in the Civil War and lived in Blount County, Alabama. I think he may have had relatives, particularly a John Herrington, in Lamar County, Al.|
|Hill||Seeking info on Barnard (Barney) P. HILL. Records indicate he was b. about 1807 in VA. but was in Tuscaloosa, AL by 1828 when he m. Elizabeth RUSSELL. This must have been the part of Tusc. Co. that later became Perry Co. Suspect that he was the owner of a business that made carriages. Was in 1850 and 1860 Perry Co, AL census and died about 1870. Any info appreciated.|
|Hinkle||Interested in HINKLE of various spellings. Right now I am stuck on information regarding Baltis HINKLE (also misspelled Battis, Balty) who was born in Hardin County, TN in 1825. There were two or three with same name born around the same time. The one of interest to me is the one who was county clerk and
sheriff in Hardin County early 1860's and died (?) in 1868, the year my
grandfather was born. He married Mary Naomi MCDANIEL (granddaughter of the BAIN family) around 1855. who was previously married to Erasmus ARUNDELL. This Baltis was also previously married but need info on who he married, and the names of
his two daughters (according to family legend). Am also trying to find Baltis and Mary's son, George W. HINKLE who "ran away from home" as a teenager to NW Alabama (?).

He seems to have disappeared. I believe his parents may have been James Holcomb and Elizabeth Brewer (1850 Muskogee Co. GA fed census) but cannot prove this. This is my grgrgrandfather and a very big brick wall.|
|Hollis||Looking for any information on Lizzie HOLLIS. She may be the first wife of Derrile Upright Hollis. If the Lizzie in question is Mary Elizabeth GOODWIN Hollis, she would have died in the 1840s. We have looked for her grave for many years. Derrile and his second wife, Margaret G., are listed.|
|Hopper||My husband was born in Lamar Co., Alabama. His great grandfather James David HOPPER is his earliest know ancestor. James David Hopper is said to have been born in Ireland in about 1822-24. Family story is that he came direct from Ireland to Alabama where he had some family already. He may have had two sisters who stayed in the Carolinas and I do not know their names. James David HOPPER married Sarah Frances HUFF (she was born in 1840 in Greenville county, S.C.) I know that Sarah descends from Parham (1),Avery (2),Philemon(3)and Daniel(4) HUFF from Brunswick county, VA . We have not been able to identify his parents yet, but he did name his 1st son: William Perry, 2nd: John Henry, 3rd: James David, 4th: Benjamin Avery. By 1858 James David Hopper is shown on Land Grants in Pickens Co. AL and the family is shown on the Pickens county, AL census of 1870. Many of the descendants remained in the Pickens and Lamar counties .|

|Irons||I am looking for the connection between the WILLIAM IRONS,(age 74,married to ELIZABETH BEASON, December 22, 1814,Franklin County, Georgia) and THOMAS SCALES, (age 77), families found living adjacent to each other in the 1860 Tuscaloosa County, Alabama census records.(There was only one child, Asa,age 24, in the household at that time.) My earliest documented ancestor is ISAIAH W.IRONS, born October 29, 1816 in Georgia, died May 29, 1874 in Hopkins County, Texas. Isaiah had a brother, GRANT SIDNEY IRONS, who lived in Titus and Hopkins County, Texas at the same time. I believe that William Irons is the father of Isaiah and Thomas Scales is the father of William's wife, Jane Scales, but as yet, I have no documentation.
In the Tuscaloosa County Marriages 1821-1860, I find JANE SCALES and ISAIAH IRONS, married December 21, 1839;THOMAS SCALES and ELIZABETH IRONS, married October 18, 1845; WILLIAM B. SPRADLING and ELIZA EMILY IRONS, married January 6, 1851. Are these people all siblings of Isaiah Irons,Grant Sidney Irons and children of William Irons and/or Thomas Scales?

|Kilgore||William (Will) KILGORE married Rebecca WYERS/WEARS about 1868, place unknown. The 1910 Walker Co., AL census lists William and his parents as being born in GA. William was born about 1845. Rebecca was born about 1849 in AL. Her parents were also listed as being born in AL. Rebecca was supposedly part Cherokee Indian. I only have 8 names for their children, the first, James Robert Kilgore, being born 7 Jul 1884. I would think there were other children born earlier from this marriage, if they were in fact married about 1868 which is what the 1910 census indicates.

|King||My KING family migrated to Alabama from North Carolina circa 1831-32. I believe they came to Lauderdale Co. when they first migrated, but I have no proof they were in Lauderdale Co. until 1845. Catherine KING was in the 1850 Lauderdale Co., AL. census with her children: William A. born 1827 NC, Arnold (John J.A.) 1830 NC, Stephen 1831 AL., Emeline 1835 AL., Joseph 1836 AL, George 1839 AL, and Luke 1843 AL. Another son, Alexander King born 1826 NC was already married and was living next door to Catherine. I do not know Catherine's maiden name, nor do I have proof who her husband was. There is a James M. KING household in the 1840 Lauderdale Co., AL. census that closely matches Catherine's in 1850. Some Catherine King researchers believe that he is her husband and father of her children. About 1845 Catherine begins to make business transactions in Lauderdale Co., thus I believe that her husband had died or moved elsewhere about this time. Stephen and George King migrated to Arkansas in the mid 1850's. John J. Arnold and William A. stayed in Lauderdale Co., AL. and Luke migrated into Tennessee ending up in Hickman Co., TN. I do not know what became of Alexander and Joseph King. I believe that Emeline died mid 1860's in Lauderdale Co., AL. I lose track of Catherine King after 1853 and I don't know what happened to her, whether she died about this time or maybe she migrated with Alexander and Joseph. There is possibly another daughter, Caroline King, who was born circa 1830 and married James Scaggs in 1846 in Lauderdale Co., AL., but she disappears also after 1850. Connected names to this King family are:YANCEY/ YANCY/ McDONALD/ STUTTS/ RIDEOUT/CURRY/ DICKERSON/ RileySCAGGS/SKAGGS|
|King||I am seeking information regarding my g grandfather, William Epperson KING, b ca 1831 in South Carolina, m ca 1855 in Cleburne County, Alabama to Mary Evelyn BROWN. She was born ca 1836 in Georgia and died 1911 in Franklin County, Alabama. Their son my grandfather was William Robert KING who married Mary Josephine HESTER. I will be glad to share any information I have on these lines. I believe Epp KING left his family and moved to Texas with a brother. One of his daughters and her husband moved to Texas but I can not find verification or information regarding any of this speculation. Any clues will be much appreciated. Thanks|

(1) Louisa UNKNOWN; m. (2) Margaret Elizabeth EZELL, 13 Apr 1853, Tishomingo County, MS; Need Wiley David's parents and Louisa's maiden name with date and place of marriage.|
|Landers||Luther P. LANDERS-I am searching for the parents of Luther P. LANDERS, b. 1827 in Alabama. He died Jan. 5, 1891 in Landersville, Lawrence Co., Alabama. He was first married to Nancy ELKINS on Nov. 22, 1845 and second to Mary HATTON, Jan. 27, 1852. He and his first family are listed in the 1850 census in Lawrence Co., 8th Dist. p. 774 or reverse 388, house #326, family 326. His parents could be John and Martha LANDERS, house 401, same district, but I have no proof.|
|Lee||LEE, PETER C. -- father of WILLIAM FRANKLIN LEE (my grandfather), born in PICKENS CTY. ALA. 1855. PETER LEE is listed on the Pickens Cty. census of 1850 as a farmer and in 1855 as a doctor. There is a PETER LEE found as JP in Wilcox Cty. Ala. in 1833 and also a cemetery lot for Martha J. LEE, dau. of J.A. and P.C.LEE in Old Snow Hill Cemetary, Wilcox Ala. I don't know if there is any connection between all these. Would appreciate any info on any of the above that anyone out there may have.|
|Limerick||Looking for information about Thomas LIMERICK, born Feb. 10, 1797, in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, and died Mar. 27, 1848, at Oakland College, Claiborne Co., Miss., according to his daughter-in-law's Bible. He married first Elizabeth WILLIAMS, who died at Tuscumbia, Ala. July 27th 1838. They had 9 children, according to the obituary of their youngest son. Those whose names I have found and the sources are as follows:
1. George Hamilton Limerick born at Tuscumbia Ala, Jan. 20th 1825 - died at New Orleans La. August 3rd 1853, baptised March 27th 1825 by Rev. Joseph Wood. - Bible
2. Oliver Limerick born at Tuscumbia, Ala., August 28th 1827 - lost on his way to California in 1849. - Bible
3. Samuel Hamilton, infant son of Thomas and Elisabeth LIMRICK, was baptised in y. Chh. at Tuscumbia, by y. Pastor, I. O. Stedman, on Sabbath morning, 1st April 1832. Samuel Hamilton was born 29th Oct. 1837. (sic) [This year probably should be 1831.] - Natchez Trace Traveler, Vol. 3, No. 4, 1983, page 122.
4. John Aldridge Limerick, born in Tuscumbia, Ala., December 15, 1833, died 12th July, 1908, in Rodney, Mississippi. - Bible, obituary
Other possible sons were Thomas and William. Thomas's second wife was Ann E. ALDRIDGE of Tuscumbia, Ala. They married c. 1844, possibly earlier. Thomas Limerick immigrated before 1819, when he was on the residents list for Huntsville Township, Madison Co., AL, according to Ancestry.com Database: AL 1811-1819 Tax Lists Index. He was the first mayor of Tuscumbia and was a commission merchant in Tuscumbia, shipping goods to and from New Orleans. By 1843 he had moved to New Orleans. I am looking for any information concerning Thomas, his wives, or children. I suspect that his first wife and several children were buried in Tuscumbia. Since the Franklin Co. courthouse burned, destroying early records, I would appreciate any suggestions on where I might find information from the 1820s, 1830s, and 1840s.

Hardin County, was county clerk, judge, state representative and senator and
a practicing attorney there until his death in 1900. James married Mary Jane

|Miles||My gr gr grandfather, George W. MILES shows up in Lauderdale Co., AL on the 1880 census. He says he was born ca 1828 in TN. He has with him his three children:
Bellezora b. Dec. 1867 TN

Edward b. 1872 TN and three step daughters:
Elvira Crumpton b. 1855 TN
Mary Crumpton b. 1858 TN
Sarah Crumpton b. 1862 TN
No wife is given, so I assume he was married to the mother of the CRUMPTON girls and is now deceased. I cannot find the Mother's name or where in TN they came from. By 1900, George is not here. Bellezora married my gr gr grandfather John Wesley Vaughan and she dies following childbirth in 1900. Any help appreciated!
|Miller||Looking for any information on the family of Lizzie Bolden MILLER. Lizzie was born in Giles County Tn but some census say Alabama either in 1880,1883 or 1888.She supposely is the daughter of General SCOTT or Winfield Scott BOLIN from Giles county Tenn.He was married to Margaret HEWITT during these years and later married Mary LUMPKINS and had these children: Bob,Tom,Ed and Barney. Lizzie
had her first child about 1905 and his name was Clayton COLE so there may have been a marriage to a Cole. Later she was said to have been married to a Joe Miller. They lived in Colbert and Lauderdale County.Al. Other children for her were Lera Mae, James E,William Jesse, and Katie. Katie was listed as Katie McLAIN on the 1930 census and the rest of her children were listed on that census as the children of J W AVERY. Lizzie lived there too and was listed as a servant. I believe Lizzie gave them her children as she was dying of cancer and her husband Joe was already dead.I dont know for sure if she ever married as I cannot find her and Joe on any census together.The 1890 census who probably
give me some answers but unfortunatly that is not possible.There aren't any living relatives to help.
|Mills||I am looking for information on WILLIAM MILLS b. 1820, TN. m. MATILDA TAYLOR, they lived in Franklin County, near his brother JAMES, who lived at Flatwoods. Any info will be appreciated.|
|Moody||Looking for parents and siblings of JOHN HIRAM LEONIDAS MOODY b. 1845 in NC. Was in Tuscaloosa County at the beginning of the Civil War when he joined Company K, 20th Alabama Infantry at the age of 16. After being taken prisoner at the Battle of Lookout Mountain, he served time at Rock Island Arsenal Prison in Illinois where many were badly mistreated. He developed scurvy there and lost use of his arm. I suspect he turned "Galvanized Yankee" because he then fought Indians in the West until the war ended (I have this story but no documentation of it yet). At the end of the war, he returned to Tuscaloosa County and married Martha Jane WATSON on December 12, 1866. They had 6 children, Mary Annie Elizabeth, J. Richard, Joseph A., Martha Jane (Minnie), Paul H., and Charles. John and family are found in Tuscaloosa County Census in 1870 and in Jefferson County in 1880. They then moved to Texas where John was a circuit riding Baptist minister. They are then found in Greer County, Oklahoma in 1898 and in 1901. John died in Neosho, Missouri in 1905. Family stories say that John was orphaned at a young age and went to live with an uncle who ran a gambling house. This may have been how he got from North Carolina to Alabama.

|Morris||On the 1860 United States Federal Census Lauderdale Co. Alabama.
Sarah E MORRIS 38 Tenn.
Thomas W. Morris 17 Tenn.
James C. Morris 13 Tenn
William Morris 11 Tenn
Lewis P Morris 6 Tenn
Mary J Morris 4 Tenn
I have been told that Sarah's maiden name was Robertson.
I believe that she is related to the Robertson's in Lauderdale Co. Alabama. I have also been told that Her husband was suppose to have died during the civil war. I have Sarah and several people living with her on the 1865 Lauderdale County Alabama agriculture list, but they live around the Wate's cemetary area. They do not give the names on this list so I can not see anyone's names.
Sarah moved sometime after 1865 to Wayne co. Tenn. with her children except for Thomas who had died sometime after 1860. Any info anyone could share would be appreciated.
|Morris||My most wanted would have to be Green B. MORRIS b abt 1826 in Alabama. Lived in Walker County when he enlisted during civil war, but believe he may have been a son of William Morris of Blount County.
Green married Martha Logan from TN and had 3 children, 2 daughters and my g grandfather William David Morris b 1858.
|Moseley||Minerva MOSELEY, My gg grandmother, is also missing her family. She married Bethel Green CHANDLER on 14 Jan 1840 in Limestone County, Alabama, born 22 November 1823 in either Tennessee or Alabama and died 15 May 1893 in Lauderdale County, Alabama. There is one family that I know of named Moseley in Limestone County in the 1840 census. This William Moseley would be of an age to be her father, however she does not appear to be a child of this family, unless she was the child of William with a previous wife. She may also have been another relative such as a niece, but I have no proof that she either lived with them or was even related. Again any clues or insights would be appreciated.|
|Mullins||My g-g-g-grandfather was William Thomas Mull*ns. He was married to Sallie POTTS. They came through VA, KY and into Alabama. Finally settled at Waco in what is now Franklin County. His daughter, Nancy, married James SMITH. James' family had moved along with the Mullins (that is the way Nancy's grave stone reads) family. James and Nancy were married in Madison County, Mississippi Territory in 1814. They settled in Newburgh, Franklin County. He founded the Mount Pleasant Methodist Church in 1824 on the corner of his farm. Congregation still meets every Sunday. Any one know any thing about any of these folks?|
|Richard MCCLUNG married Mary Ann Dennis Aug. 29, 1897 in Franklin Co., AL.
They had two children: Berta (Birdie) McClung, b. 1899 and James McClung, b.
1902. Family story has it that Richard McClung left the house one day to go
buy some tobacco. He was never seen again. This happened when the children
were young. Sometime in the 1960's, Berta and James received a letter from a
bank somewhere that their father had left them some money. Berta supposedly
took all of the money and she and her husband Alvin Clanch (Claunch?) bought
a store with it. Would like to know where this Richard McClung's birthdate,
birthplace and parents. Possibly he might have been born in Georgia.
