Was there a Quaker settlement in Sumner County? If so, where do I get information?
Is anyone familiar with the names Mitchell Holloway married Catherine Valentine 1824 in Sumner Co? They had a daughter Mary who married Samuel Sanders in Sumner in 1842. Thanks for any information you can give me.

Hi Sue,
I really need to talk with you but need to locate some papers that are out of file first. I am descended from John Sr. but have never been able to determine just which children go with which wives. Therefore, I have not put but a few of the many children in my data base.
 I descend from John's son Christopher who was born in Halifax Co., VA. He later moved to Williamson Co., TN. The area in which he lived later became Maury Co.
The only wife I have found proof of is Jane Holloway.
She is the mother of Obediah and I don't know who else. I have heard of several other possible wives but no one has offered proof before. This is exciting to finally have proof of something.

Who does your neighbor, William Fitzgerald Dodson, descend from? I also have Dodson's.
My great grandfather, Jesse H. Fitzgerald married Susan J. Dodson. I have made a DAR supplemental line on Thomas (Second Fork) Dodson. I have so many questions but need to find my notes before asking them.....
Was John Sr. in the Rev. War? I know there was a John Fitzgerald who served under Washington but don't expect it could be our John.

The children I have entered are Garrett, Christopher, Edmund, Susanna, and Obediah. There are about 13 more.  
Had saved your message to answer when I got things together. But, couldn't wait when I heard (about) Family Bible!

Hi Dana,
Wonder if you could post more on your Holloway family in Wilson County?
Somehow or another, my husband's ancestor, Martha E. Lane Goodman, was related to the Holloway's, as she and her brother were named in either Levi Holloway, or Ezekiel Holloway's will (This was mentioned in one of Thomas Partlow's books, but I don't have my papers in front of me, and can't remember which) as "grandchildren", but I do not see a connection in the info I have on this line, through the marriages I have listed.

Hello from SE KANSAS

Hate to ask, but would some kind soul check the 1850 index for me and see if there is a Joshua WARD listed.

My best guess would be that he was in the Rutherford Co TN area. There is a deed entry in the Rutherford Co records where --

From Rutherford Co TN records
Deed Book 4 p 412 February 23, 1850
Joshua WARD deed to William SPENCE for $550 interest in estate of William WARD deceased late of Rutherford Co TN -- I hereby covenant with the said William SPENCE that I have an interest in the real and personal estate of the said William WARD deceased as one of his heirs in right of my father Michael WARD deceased. Registered March 1, 1850.

If Joshua is found, I'm desparate for the full listing with children and places of birth of Joshua and his parents.

Thanks, and always willing to share or help when I can.

I have a rather cryptic note to myself in the margin of a family group sheet regarding Martha and James Lain. There may have been a Jane Holloway who married a Lain. She was the daughter of Martha Holloway and James Ozment.
I have a copy of Levi Senior's will (the original is in my brother's lockbox as part of the papers my father had in his safety deposit box). It names Martha and James as the children of Jane who is listed as one of the children of Levi's daughter Martha.
(don't be confused by two e-mail addresses--this one is at my home)

Hi Anne, and thanks.......
I appreciate your note and posted it to the Holloway page, so I won't lose it........
This adds to the puzzle even more.....then I was reading some of the email I had on Wilson County stuff and came across this that Lon Martin and Bob Carver had sent me.....

If you see anything else about "Jane" let me know please....I show Mary Jane Ozment/Osment as first wife of James Allen Lane/Lain, and as mother of Martha and James, BUT had her as daughter of Richard Ozment, and far as I know, Richard and James are brothers.....and to add to the confusion there is a Richard D. and a Richard S. Ozment and people have their kids mixed up.....

This was info I had gained thru a cousin's research papers at the Mt Juliet Library, so I have not verified it for myself. I rarely ever get to Lebanon to do research, even tho I have a son living there.....go to visit him, and no time to go to the library, etc...

Bob and Lon's notes follow.....

thanks again, NancyG

Dear Bob,

I am very interested in having the children of Horace and Nell. I am trying to complete as much as possible on the Ozment/Osment family. On these James Harrison Ozment(s), I have found five or six in the familiy branches. I am trying to straighten out the records on these. On top of this I have found two James H. Ozments (Sr. and Jr.) whose middle name was Henry the James Ozments, I won't even mention there were so many. So you can see how "messed up" our Ozment tree is and how confusing it is to some people.

I thank you very much for your time and effort in helping me. All is appreciated. As you can see, I did not have as much as you sent me on this branch. If I may be of help to you please let me know. Thanks again. I am making a cc of this note for Nancy Goodman for her website.

The family Bible list her as dying on April 28, 1849. This would be 2 months after having her last child. A person may wonder if it wasn't complications after giving birth. Her husband, James died 4 months after her. Sarah, the oldest took care of her brothers and sisters after their parents had died. She is listed as the head of household for the 1850 Wilson County census.

|Goodspeed's History of Wilson County, Tennessee, pub. 1886, reprinted 1971, p. 1111:

J. Harrison Ozment, an enterprising farmer, was born September 11, 1853, in Wilson County, Tenn., and is one of three children born to John C. and Amanda (Wright) Ozment. The father was born October 5, 1833, (the family bible shows October 5, 1832, which is the date I use, Lonnie) in Wilson County, and is a farmer by occupation. He is the owner of about 100 acres of land, and is now living in the Twenty-fifth District. The mother was born March 4, 1834, and is the daughter of Hollis and Elizabeth Wright. Our subject was reared in Wilson County, and received a practical education in the country schools. In 1877 he began farming for himself, and December 20, 1876, Emma A. Clemmons became his wife. She is the daughter of William L. and Elizabeth (Carver) Clemmons, and was born March 12, 1857. Mr. and Mrs. Ozment are the parents of three children: Clara, Lenna, and Horace. Mr. Ozment has a fine farm of 200 acres in the Twenty-fifth District, and is a gentleman in every respect. He is a Democrat in politics, and a consistent member of the Missionary Baptist Church. Mrs. Ozment is a member of the Christian Church.

In the 1860 Wilson County census he is listed as James H., 7 years old.

Dear Nancy,
Let me try to muddy the waters even more. Levi Sr.'s will states:

"Seventh, I give and bequeath to my daughter Marthas children Eighteen hundred dollars to be equally divided between them, provided none of my money should be lost, that is to say, Sally Francy [as best I can make out], John Patra James Green Harrison and James [or Janes ] two children Martha and James Lain to have their Mothers part"

I have left the punctuation as it is in the original.

I also have a letter addressed to Levi and Judith Holloway from James and Martha Ozment dated 31 January 1845 from Batesville , Arkansas.  

As you probably know Levi recorded a grant in 1813. We have the grant and it was originally issued in 1806 to Henry Dunalow for Revolutionary service.
The original warrant was purchased by Daniel Cherry from Dunalow's daughter and sold to Levi. The Tennessee grant to Levi was issued to Levi on 13 July 1810 and mentions a survey made in April 1808. Dunalow was from Bertie County, NC but I believe Levi's family may have been from Martin Co., NC.
There is a Levy Holloway in a1789 (I think) tax list for this county but not in the census. I also have two references Levy in the Martin Co. Abstracts of Deed Book A, 1774-1787. He witnessed a deed in Feb. 1775 and was listed among bordering property in a deed in Oct 1784 along with Jesse Cherry and Job Cherry.
Hope this gives you more food for thought.

# 13 CREEK

I am researching the surname CREEK. My GGG grandfather was Killion CREEK who married Margaret HOLLOWAY in 1769 in Va. Killion had 15 children. Catherine, John, Nancy, Solomon, Jacob, Abraham, Isaac, David, Lavisa, Susanna, Killion, Jr., Thomas, James, Philadelphia and William W. CREEK. Any info at all on CREEK's would be appreciated. I believe all CREEK's are related. This CREEK name was German. It was originallly spelled GERIG (this is arrived from the signature of Killion CREEK). Or at least it looked like it was spelled like that.
Macon Co TN is next door to Monroe Co. KY and that is where my GG grandfather John CREEK raised his family. Some surnames that married into the John CREEK family are LUCKETT, FLETCHER, LEE, DENISON, NEAL, O'BANNON and WILLIAMS.
Surnames that married into the Isaac CREEK family are BUTRUM, AGERS, LEE, WOODCOCK, GREEN, MCPEAK, and LLOYD.
