Dear Mrs. Goodman,
I enjoyed visiting your website. In addition, I recently visited the Mt. Juliet Library and purchased The Chronicle. (Editor's note: see the MOUNT JULIET/WEST WILSON HISTORICAL SOCIETY SITE AT: )
According to your site, we have some surnames in common.
My grandfather (my mother's father) was Joseph Thomas Arrington JENKINS, son of Almerine Burnette (A.B.) JENKINS. According to my records, we are descendants of William Harris JENKINS and Jemima HUGHLEY. I have Jemima being the daughter of Job and Tabitha HUGUELY.
In addition, my father and I are descendants Finis Ewing SHANNON, and Henry SHANNON.
Do these names look familiar? Would you like to share records?

Hi Nancy Goodman;
Just want you to know I have really enjoyed Your site, one of the best I have ever visited.Thanks for all the hard work in bringing genealogy information to us older people, in fact dummies like me.
Wish I waw close enough to attend your classes then I would not be a dummy for long.
Would like to know if you are related to Jerry Truman Ratliff, saw information on his family of Ratliffs.
Sometime ago I found where he had submitted some information on the family, and he had written a book on the Ratliffs.
In the info I saw he included Owen Ratliff who married Patience Ashmore, they reared a large family in Lawrence Co. Tn. Patience Ashmore was a sister to my great grand father, so I wrote to Jerry at the same address on your
web-site, trying to purchase one of his books, never did heard a word.
I am related to the desc of Owen Ratliff and would like to have the info.
I met a grand daughter of Owen and Patience Ratliff last year while researching in Lawrenceburg, Tn.

Thanks again for the nice site, and I will be back.

I am following up our ancestors, so was interested in your Goodman information.
Thomas Goodman was born 12 Dec 1821 in Leicestershire, England.
He came to New Zealand in 1843.
Good to see the way you have put your page together.
Kind regards,

Mays/Gibbons in West Tennessee since 1845 and before. Mays families moved into Gibson/Dyer area before my Tapley Mays, but I have yet to establish the links I need. They all came, some circuitously, from the Pittsylvania Co., VA area, or just across into NC.
Any help would be appreciated.

Stumbled onto your page, really liked the graphics. Thought I might have been able to help.
My Father is from Newport Tenn. and moved to Maryland as a boy. I didn't recognize any of the Names you had there though. His name is James Thomas, I can't really remember some of the other relatives names there other then Brown.
Just wanted to say it's amazing the amount of people that came from Tenn. and moved up to Maryland. There are many families that I grew up with that are traceable back to Tenn.
Good luck with your work and your page looks great. <graphic missing>

My GR-Gr-Grandmother was EmEline Peirce (Pearce or ?)
  Her Sampler says at 15 she went to Salem School, and No other information. She was born 1815-1816, died in Wabash IN. in 3/6/1899 newspaper said she was 83 years old when she died.
  She was Married on 3/17/1836 in Columbiana Co. OH to Anderson Burns. I cannot find anything about her in OH before her marriage, I found an Emaline P. the dau of Arthur Davis Pearce ETC who was born abt 1816 I think it said born in TN. and A.D. had a son Garner as well.
I don't know the parents of Anderson Burns either, or where he originated from. Several years ago I saw a Burns family in TN, and they had a son Anderson (I think) at the time I discounted it, now I'm not so sure. My Anderson had a brother Daniel, Also, there was another Anderson Burns born in Columbiana Co. OH in 1842-45, to Benjamim and Hannah Gaunt Burns, This Anderson moved to Wabash IN also,& lived close by mine. I really appreciate anything you can do to help me in my search. As an adult, Emeline raised somewhere between 16 and 28 orphans,(was she an orphan herself?) She had two children, Serena and Daniel.
