    1). I'd like to"compare notes" with anyone on these surnames in TN:
    PIERCE, (possibly PEARCE),
    GILBERT, and
    BROWN. I am descended from these families and have deep roots in Lincoln, Bedford, Marshall, Moore, and possibly Giles and Franklin counties.
    I have a LOT of inf. on the MUSE surname and a fair amount on LAMBERT and WAGSTER.
    My "problem" names are PIERCE, CONWELL, ROZIER, BROWN and GILBERT.
    2). Email:[Bob Jones]
    One problem I have is with the Brown surname. I believe that my ggg grandmother was Angeline BROWN (born about 1810, died about 1845). Family legend has it that she was a sister of John Brown and Neil Brown who were governors of the state of TN in the second half of the 19th century. Legend also says she was disinherited by the Brown family because she married a poor farmer from Lincoln Co. It is said the Brown family was very influential in Giles Co; but we can find no trace of her anywhere. If anyone knows anything about the Browns from Giles Co, please contact me.

    Looking for more info on Nathaniel A. GREESON, my GG grandfather who was born 24 Feb 1831 in Bethel Springs, TN. He died 22 Jun 1892.
    He served during the Civil War and was disabled by a musket ball during a battle.
    He married Elvira ANDREWS;(born 28 Aug 1828.) They had seven children, six boys and one girl. The story passed down by my grandfather is that he taught his children to read and write at his bedside.                      
    One son, Richard Lucien GREESON was my great grandfather,(born 2 Jun 1858; died 27 Mar 1949).
    I believe Richard was also born in Bethel Springs, TN; he died in Taft, CA. His wife was Nannie Catherine MURRY; they married in 1884. Nannie, born 18 Dec 1868; died 30 Dec 1937 also in Taft, CA. They had eight children, 5 boys and 3 girls.                                                                               
    Their sixth child, Bonnie Lee GREESON, Sr. was my grandfather. Bonnie Lee GREESON, Sr., born in Myrtle Springs, Texas on 28 Jan 1896; died 7 Apr 1970 in Tillamook, Oregon; married Bernice Eva LEON on 11 Dec 1925. She was born 2 Feb 1899; died 12 May 1987 in Tillamook, Oregon. They were married in California and migrated north to Oregon in 1947.

    There are some TN puzzles I have been having problems with, and I would greatly appreciate if anyone can help.
    1).Email: [Ron Goodman] In "Tennesssee Tidbits, 1778-1914, Vol 1", compiled by Marjorie Hood Fischer, is a reference on page 146 to the following: "August 1790 Court: Robt. and Amos GOODMAN, children of John GOODMAN, ordered committed to the care of John RICHARDSON until further orders. Stephen and Sarah and Rachel GOODMAN were committed to the care of Jos. RICHARDSON aforesaid. (Greene, TN Co Court Minutes #/170)."
    Since "aforesaid" is mentioned, I would like to find out if a copy of the complete document is available, as it might provide more detail.
    In 1832, in Greene Co, TN, Rachel GOODMAN married Simpson DOUGHTRY. ??  If the Amos GOODMAN above was 8 years old in 1790, that would match the 1782 birth year of my ancestor Amos GOODMAN, who married first to Sarah CONWAY, then second to Mourning JONES. I have never been able to clearly identify Amos's siblings or mother, "Edith".
    2). Email: [Ron Goodman] My ancestor, Amos GOODMAN, married Sarah CONWAY on Aug 29, 1801 in Blount Co, TN, with Thomas CONWAY as 'Security'. Was Thomas CONWAY perhaps her brother, or her father? In Greene Co, TN, on Apr 11, 1792, Thomas CONWAY, Sen. married Nancy RUTON (RECTOR). 'Security' was Thomas CONWAY, Jr. This appears to be a second marriage, as in Greene Co, TN on Feb 9, 1792, Thomas CONWAY married Susanna CONWAY, 'Security' was Alex COLTON (CUTTAN?). I think this was probably Sarah CONWAY's brother, by Thomas CONWAY, Sr.'s first marriage. I think this Conway family may be related somehow to the Conway family that married into the TALLIAFERRO family of Virginia, but I am not sure.
    3).Email: [Ron Goodman] The Ansel GOODMAN, whose will was filed in 1841 in Wilson Co, TN, (will book- #135) may be the same Ansel GOODMAN who filed a Rev War pension claim in 1832 in Russell Co, Kentucky. I have a full copy of that application and attachments from the National Archives. He was 80 years old in 1832, best of his recollection, so he would have been about 89 years old in 1841. If this Ansel GOODMAN was also the father of Amos GOODMAN, who came to another son or daughter's home back to TN to die, then more family details may be in the will. I would like to get a full copy it.

    I am looking for info on James Wilson LYNCH, from either Virginia or Ohio, born perhaps between 1790 and 1800, married first to Phoebe DUNCAN from Virginia, then to Phebe HOUSE.
    He had a son Isaac LYNCH, born to Phebe HOUSE.
    The family legend is that Isaac LYNCH was probably born in Russell Co, Virginia and moved to Claiborne Co, TN (called the Barrens) in 1831 (according to the Claiborne Co Observer, 23 Apr 1980, "Early Settlers of Claiborne Co., TN).
    The story also goes on to say Isaac LYNCH moved with his mother and younger children to Madison Co, Arkansas in 1851 by rafting down the Clinch River, TN River, Mississippi River and up the Arkansas River to Ft. Smith, Arkansas.

    I am looking for the parents of my GGG Grandfather, Harvey RODDY (RODDYE), also listed (incorrectly) in marriage records as Harry RODDY. He was born in Washington, Rhea Co, TN in 1817 and died in Rhea Co in 1898. He is buried at the Salem Baptist Church in Dayton, Rhea Co, TN.                                On July 19, 1838, he married Martha Jane BOULTON (born 1820-died1859). Then on June 14, 1860, he married Jane BIRELY (born 1826-died 12/16/1893 in Rhea Co).
    Harvey RODDY enlisted as a private in Capt Richard Waterhouse's Company, Lauderdale's Bn., TN Mounted Inf. on Nov. 3, 1837, and was discharged at Baton Rouge, LA on May 11, 1838. On August 12, 1863, for the defense of the South in Rhea Co, TN, he enlisted as a private in Capt/ Darius Waterhouse's Co. Bn of TN Troops, at the home of David M. RODDY.                
     I feel there must be a connection between David M. and Harvey. David M. RODDY (born 1810) can be traced back to his grandfather, Col. James RODDY who fought in the American Revolution.
      Col. RODDY had six sons and six daughters. I have followed the lines of five sons (Jesse, James Jr., Isaac, John and Thomas). None had a son named Harvey.
    To date, I have been unable to track the sixth son, William O. RODDY, born about 1787. This William O. RODDY married a girl with the last name of JONES. (Don't confuse William O. RODDY with William B. RODDY, the Colonel's brother.
      Any light anyone can shed on the children of William O. RODDY, or the parents of Harvey RODDY, would be much appreciated.
    Happy to share other information about the RODDY family.

    1). I am reseaching the Pleasant LAWSON family out of South Carolina or North Carolina into TN.
    His son, Samuel LAWSON, was born in 1820 in White Co, TN.
    Pleasant LAWSON's wife was Rebecca MORGAN.
    Does anyone have anything on this family?
    2). I am also researching GOODMAN in Barren Co, Kentucky, and CONDRA, SHARP, OWENS, SOWDER, MARSEE, and MILLER of Claiborne Co, TN.

    I am trying to find inf. on my GG grandmother Easter PHILLIPS NEWBERRY. She was born July 7, 1813 in Georgia; died Nov 20, 1898 in Carrol Co, Arkansas. Letters written in 1916 by my grandmother Rosa DEW NEWBERRY stated that she married Stephen C. NEWBERRY, Jr. around 1836 in Overton Co, TN. Census reports show the Newberry family there at that time. They moved to Arkansas about 1840.  
    According to my grandmother's letters, her father was Levi PHILLIPS and Mildred TALLEY and Levi's father was Ruben PHILLIPS.
    I did find a Matildda TALLEY and Levi PHILLIPS married and in the census but they were about the same age as Easter PHILLIPS. I am beginning to think that Ruben may have been her father instead of Levi. This is only speculation as I cannot find any records of her prior to the time she was in Arkansas with Great-Great- Grandfather NEWBERRY.
    My father's side of the family were SPAULDING's and NEWBERRY's; on my mother's side I have MEEKS and STITES. The Newberrys, Meeks and Stites were all from Arkansas and my Spauldings are pretty elusive.
    I have quite a bit of inf0 on the other three lines if anybody is looking for them.
    If anyone can connect me to someone who might have a family history which includes Easter PHILLIPS NEWBERRY, it would be greatly appreciated. Email:[Gloria Lovvo](that is two V's as in Victor, NOT W.)

    Searching for family of Isaac LEA, purported son of Francis LEA. Isaac Lea, born 1804 in Roane Co or Bledsoe Co TN; married Frances FANNING in 1822(?) in Pikeville, TN. They left TN about 1835 for Arkansas, then went on to Missouri. Possible siblings of Isaac LEA may be older brothers Wm LEA and John LEA. Some of Isaac's descendants are named Preston LEA, Henry LEA, Wesley LEA, Leatha LEA, Armstrong LEA, and Greenfield LEA.

    I just got a lead on 2 new surnames associated with my LEA's. If anyone has access to or a copy of the 1830 E TN census index (assuming there is one?), could you check for: Samuel WHITELEY (Whitley?), Isaac WHITELY, John SANDERS, and Robert SANDERS.
    Thx very much.
