I'm researching the ancestors of Jeanette (Nettie) Estes. Since she
was married to W.A. Hopwood 9-2-1909 in Columbia we have reason to
believe she was from Columbia, Maury County, TN. We know very little
about her. We do know that her mother died when she was a small child
and she was raised by her grandmother, we think Emily Estes d.
1-18-1915 at age 91. Nettie's mother and father may have been Nancy
Estes d. 3-2-1891 age 45 yrs. and J.J. Estes d. 3-17-1923 age 63 yrs.
We do know his name was John. Nettie also had an uncle named Lonnie
Estes (no dates) on him. All of these dates were taken from the
Hopwood Family Bible which was kept by Nettie. My husband is Thomas
Jackson Hopwood, Nettie's only grandchild. Any help very much

I am searching for the family of William P. Taylor in 1870. I found
this family in 1850 in Maury Co., Tenn. after he had lost his first
wife Minerva and married Miss Nancy D. SCOTT. They moved to
Lauderdale Co., Ala. and then later returned to Tennessee. They were
living in Marshall Co., Tenn. prior to 1876 because one of the
daughters Betty P. TAYLOR married William B. KANNON on 26 Oct. 1876
in that county. The KANNONs made their home on Greasy Branch Rd. in
Maury Co. Where was the family of William P. Taylor living in 1870?
Who was Nancy D. SCOTT's parents. Both Wm. P. TAYLOR and Nancy D.
SCOTT were born in Virginia. One child was born from the 1st marriage
of Wm. P. TAYLOR, the child's name was Susan D. TAYLOR. Children from
the 2nd marriage were Docia Ophelia TAYLOR, Lucy F. TAYLOR, and Betty
P. TAYLOR. There may have been others, but until I locate this family
on the 1870 census somewhere, I won't know for sure. Please help.

it because of the children. The children's names were Caroline
(Callie) and William. I have screened a film listing Tennessee's
Civil War veterans but it's by name and unit only. I found one
William DUGGER who was a Pvt in F Co. 48th (Later 54th) Inf and

Please help solve a mystery! The death of Meriwether Lewis was
investigated by a grand jury whose foreman was Samuel WHITESIDE
(1777-1850). The only known record of the proceedings was a personal
journal kept by Mr. WHITESIDE. A published account claims that the
journal was passed to Whiteside's son-in-law, Jordan POGUE
(1814-1880); m. Jeannet WHITESIDE (1814-1883) in 1835. It then went
to their son William D. POGUE (1840- ca1908), his son James J. POGUE
(1873-1961) and James J.'s son-in-law Robert Ulna SWANN (1897-1978),
m. Mary A. POGUE (1898-1992) in 1920. I am Ulna Swann's grandson, and
