WEAKLEY, McGAUGH, HARNISH, COBLE:

Subj: Weakley Family Date: 97-12-02
From: Spiritess1@aol.com
Dear Nancy,
I was thrilled to find the WEAKLEY family listed under the Family Tree
Maker web site.
I have been searching the McGAUGH part of my lineage for a while now
and have not been able to turn up anything.
When I saw the name "Weakley",
it struck a cord!!!
As my Great Great Grandfather had the middle name of
Weakley, I believe
I might be on the right track here.
These are the names
I am interested in:
Matthew Weakley McGaugh born July 8, 1846 in Marshall
Co.,
TN died April 13, 1919 in Elkins, TX married H. J. (Jennie) COBLE born

Mar 2, in TN died in TX The above is the furthest back I can get on the
McGaugh's
and if I can tie them into the Weakley's, I would like to
search that line
too!!
Thank you so much for your time. If you could provide me with any
information or point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful. Again, thank you.

Hi, Loretta and Nancy!

married H.
J. (Jennie) Coble born Mar 2, in TN died in TX."

The only McGAUGH shown in The Southern Virgina Weakley Families and
Their Descendants
by Samuel
Anderson Weakley <SAW> is Sarah McGAUGH,
b. 19 Dec 1772 in VA, m. Isaac WEAKLEY
(B9) 10 Mar 1797 in Davidson Co.,TN.
He speculates that Sarah died about
1841 in Scott Co., MO, as Isaac was
busy making land deals there at the time.
Isaac then apparently returned to TN and married Mary Hunter-Lee
29 Sep 1842
in Davidson Co.
SAW has no further information on Sarah, except that she
and Isaac had
eight children, six boys and two girls. The WEAKLEY family
seems to have
been much admired, and it is entirely possible that some in
Sarah's
McGaugh line admired Isaac or another Weakley and decided to give
Matthew the Weakley name.
SAW gives some examples of this in the Robert WEAKLEY
(B7) line.
A brief note on the ID numbers:
SAW begins the genealogy in America
with Robert Weakley (no wife known),
who had four children:
A, William Weakley,
who had no children;
B, Robert Weakley, m. Elinor STEWART;
C, James Weakley,
m. Hannah COFFEE; and
D. Jean Weakley, m. John STEWART.
He traces all lines
to some degree, but the largest, by far, is the B line.
The numbers refer to the children in order of birth. Sometimes there is a
lowercase "a" or
"b" following a number indicating second and third wives,
and few times more!
I am a seventh generation descendant in the B line; B2.8a.7.6.1.3.
I am also
working POWERS and EVANS and related lines, which you know are
extensive.
I am always happy to assist in any way that I can.
Best wishes in your endeavors.
Sincerely,
Ken Powers,
Portland, TN

MERRILL, GREGORY, KNIGHT:

Subj: Tennessee Ancestors Date: 97-12-05
From:pknight@fidnet.com (Patricia A. Knight)
I am trying to research William Roland
Merrill, who died in Athens,
Limestone County, Alabama in Feb. 1849. William
was born in Rowan County,
NC in 1816 and married Lucretia Gregory in Limestone
County, Alabama in
1836 and they had 4 children ,
John,
Mary Jane,
James
Polk and
Chapman N.
They must have moved back and forth to Lincoln and Giles
County, TN after
his death Mary Jane married in TN and his wife, daughter
of Byrd GREGORY,
Lucretia was in those counties in the 1850 census. Byrd
Gregory was also,
back and forth between Alabama and Tennessee.
What I am
trying to find out is where Wm. Merrill is buried and who his
parents were.....
I
believe them to be John Merrill and Mary (Polly) Chapman) Merrill???
Would
the local papers at the time have carried obits? I hope!!!
He fought in the
Mexican War and died as a result of dysentery from being
in Mexico. I have
tried everywhere to locate his place of burial and prove
parentage .....census,
marriage , National Archives, wills, etc.....
I have info from his time spent
in the service..but, no listing of parents.
.... Would any records be in
that area on these people.....
By the way, tonight was the first time that
I've been in your home page
and I am impressed ... I use many and will come
back to visit....
Thanks

BYERLEY, BYERLY, KINSER, FOUNTAIN:

Subj: [TN] TN ancestors
from PA, MD,or VA? Date: 97-12-05
From:doriskf@ibm.net Doris Kinser Fountain
(new email)
To: TNROOTS-L@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU

While researching a German family (Byerley), I found information which I believe should be considered by all researchers who are struggling to
determine
from which state northeast of TN was the pre-1800 home of the
future Tennesseans.
Some researchers refuse dialog with researchers from "other" states of
the
same surname and may make a serious mistake.
When I recently returned from
Lancaster CO, PA, it took only a few minutes
to drive from PA into MD and
on into Northern VA, which was the route
which many ancestors took down the
"Great Wagon Road" as they came into
the future state of TN.
From the early
pages of The Byerly Family of the Vally of VA, by John F.
Byerley, Jr, 8305
Spring Hollow Drive, Richmond, VA 23227, 1994:
“Out of regard for the
rights of the Indians, the authorities in PA did
not permit settlement west
of the Susquehana River until after 1729.
Many of these German immigrants
thus resolved to seek homes sites elsewhere.
“Two decades before the
Am. Rev. large numbers of non-sectarian Germans
from PA spilled over the
southern borders of that Province into Frederick
CO, MD.”
Lord Fairfax
of VA offered them special inducements to settle in northern
VA. The “trail
of Monacracy” started at a point on the Susequehana River
near the present
site of Wrightsville and thus to a point on the Monacacy
River near the boundary
of PA and MD and along the river to the Potomac.
(From page 12). Documentation
is sketchy in this period. The early Germans
did not keep careful personal
records. They were more intent on preparing
their lands for cultivation and
building their honmes, and wasted no time
on such matters; and, so it happens
that the history of these first
settlements is shrouded in uncertainty.
English
speaking descendants, if they found records in a language
unreadable to them,
more often than not, threw these “useless” papers away.
Many were
working as indentured servants and did not own the land.
There were no census
or tax lists for those early years.
The border between PA/MD was not definite.

Deeds were often in private hands and not recorded publicly. The Germans were suspicious of government...
The boundary between Lancaster CO, PA,and Frederick CO, MD, was not
definite. It may have been that the stay in
MD was short and the
Lancaster residence remembered more strongly...
Documentation...between Hagerstown and Cerefoss is given greater credence through the association with the families...
The move of...families into
the vicinity of Harrisonburg, VA, about the
same time, speaks of the closeness
of their relationship in MD.
From page 17 of the same source:
“The Valley
of VA was in the process of being settled when the Byerleys
came to “The
Great Valley,” known now as the Shenandoah Valley...
They arrived in
the second half oF the 18th century, settling in Frederick
CO in the north
at Mecklenberg, (now Shepherdstown, WV).
Others settled later in Rockingham
CO.
Still others settled as far south as Botetourt CO, on the James River,
at Springwood, near Fincastle, VA.
“The Valley generally embraced that
geographical area from Frederick CO
(organized in 1738) and Augusta CO (1838)
in the north to Botetourt CO
(1770) in the south.
Boteoturt CO, as late as
1786, was considered the most frontier of the
valley counties.
In 1778 Rockingham
CO was formed from Augusta.
Understanding this territory is helpful in locating
the early Byerlys in
the Valley of VA.”
For all non-English speaking
settlers it is even more imperative to
understand the geography of the early
colonies.
It also becomes more important to research with families of all
future
states.

Subj: Weakley family Date:
97-12-07
From: betty@xanadu2.net (Betty & Zeno Stout)
I have been to
your web page and am impressed.
I have a WEAKLEY line on my husband's line that starts with James WEAKLEY
and Jane WILSON in Ireland about 1700.
Then
on to Isabel b.1749 in Pa died 1827 in Ga. who married Stephen GROVES.
I
also have a GOODMAN line--Henry GOODMAN, born 1758 SC married Catherine
SMITHHART and died 1833 Anderson County, Tennessee.
Might these be connected?
I have
a Robert WEAKLEY in record as one of the children of James.
He married Elizabeth
GILLESPIE by my records.
MORRIS
:
Subj: Question from a Novice Date: 97-12-07
From: Jimtyler@aol.com
I have
an interest in Genealogy but have zero knowledge of the subject.
My last
name is MORRIS and I know that my Great, Great Grandfather is
listed in the
1850 Census in Robertson County, TN.
His name is Peter B. MORRIS and he was
born in 1800.
I have never seen the actual listing but some of my relatives
have.
No one has ever looked further.
Any ideas of suggestions you might
have about how I might go forward would
be appreciated.
Are there any MORRIS'that you know of in your local genealogy circles in
the Robertson County
area?
One of Peter MORRIS' sons listed in that 1850 Census was an ISSAC Morris.
Issac is my Great Grandfather. He moved from TN to Arkansas and it is
possible
that there is very little documented information about where he
went.
He
was born in 1848 and was only 2 1/2 when that census was done.
The neat thing
is that if you can help me locate somone who knows the
MORRIS' from TN, I
know everything (or can find it out) about Issac and
his line.
In one significant
branch of that line, I have the only boy that can keep
the name going.
I
know you have much going on with your own searches and if you do not
even
have time to respond, that is fine.
I just wanted to take a shot to see if
there might be some MORRIS that you
know ir if you could steer me to the
most valuable local resources for
this type of information.
Best Reagrds
and Merry Christmas,
Jim Morris

1876,
Early B. STRICKLAND, Jan 1880,

I do know not the other children's names.
Lear Vesta STRICKLAND was
their last child, b. 1882 in Ark.
I found a John and Sarah STRICKLAND who
were married in Polk Co., Tn in
1860, which will match the date on the Ark. census.
Two other possible names for John and Sarah's children are:
Roxy

WILLIAMSON:

Subj: Web page & queries Date: 97-12-14
From: VJyizit@aol.com
Hi Nancy,
Just found your great website and looked
at a few of your queries.
My hubby's roots are all in TN and VA.
We would
like to send you family charts and info of those that lived in
Washington
Co., TN... From my Family Origins I can only send descendant
charts in book form. I guess I could write out info on generations that
lived in TN???
Or..snailmail a few computer generated family charts for
your classes. (p.s.my hubby and I are "seniors" - ages 74 and 76 and
going strong)
We have one
particular question we'd love to have help with and that is
this:
Our
gr-grandfather Tinsley Rucker WILLIAMSON is buried in the Confederate Cemetery at Hermitage - on grounds with Rachel's little church. (we have found it in past trips to Nashville. He died in 1914. He also lived in the Confederate Hospital/Home that was also on the same grounds at one time. From "cousins" in Jonesboro we recently found out that there was a
"breakdown
in communications" with the home at time of his death and that
he was SUPPOSED
TO HAVE BEEN sent back to Jonesboro to be buried in plots
he had purchased
earlier.!???!!!
Our question for you/your class is -How can we find out more
about the Confederate Home/Hospital that stood on this land?
We'd like to
know the history of it - how many lived there and when it
was or first used
as Confederate Hospital/Home.
Both Nashville State Library and Hermitage
Assoc. has given us very very
little info about it - only that Tinsley came
there in 1914.
Looking forward to using your website for queries, etc. and
thanks to you, - we haven't found much help in research in Washington Co.,
before.
Thanks,
Oscar and Jan Williamson

my Phillips ancestors Date: 97-12-15
From: AJBTHIRD@aol.com
(AJBTHIRD)
Hello Nancy Phillips Goodman.
I am Arthur James Barnett, III.
My grandmother, Martha (or Mertie) Ethel KILZER (b.10/13/1897 d.4/2/1943) was the daughter of Israel Buckhanan KILZER and Martha PHILLIPS (b.2/1871 d.?) She was the daughter of Henry PHILLIPS and Sally FITZGERALD.
My grandmother
Kilzer lived in Gibson County TN and that is where my father
was born. It
is my belief that my great grandmother (Martha Phillips) also
lived in Gibson
County, TN but I have no idea where she was born nor do I
know where my great
great grandparents, Henry Phillips and Sally Fitzgerald,
lived.
I would really
appreciate your help if you have any information concerning
this line of

Great-great-great grandparents, MARY MILLS

enough Cherokee blood to be able to claim land
in the Oklahomas land give
away. Her name does not appear on any "roll' because she chose not to
claim any land. She married James MCREYNOLDS, born

They were married in Tennessee on November 25, 1834. His
parents were
both born in South Carolina. I do not know either of their parents

JONES, GALLAHER:

Subj: Looking for Jones' Date: 97-12-16

From: BarnCUSA@aol.com
Dear Genny,
How good it is to find a Tennessee
Genealogy source on the WWW.
I am a genealogy buff and can trace some "branches" of my family tree 26
generations. I am having trouble tracing back my family
name "JONES".
The last Jones I can trace was born in 1813, died in 1889 in
Knox Co. and
named John JONES Jr. by his mother Rebecca GALLAHER and father
John JONES
who disappeared into the wilderness supposedly with Andrew Jackson
towards New Orleans.
I know they were married in Knox County in 1811 and
she was from Washington
County, TN and was born in 1788. The whereabouts
and "from which Jones' he
came from" remain a mystery. I have a suspicion
that he may be a descendant
of the John Jones (who was a descendant of Rev.Rowland JONES) who was one
of the original members of the State of Franklin.
My grandfather, who is now 80, and I have worked on our project for
probably
20 years now and to find the "Jones Branch" would be a real
Christmas gift.
If you have any idea where to start I would greatly appreciate your input and please let me know how I might assist you in the future.
Thanks,
Steve

his father: John FOX, b. 12 mar 1823, Sevier County, TN, d. 15 Feb 1852,
Sevier Co,
TN.
Roxie's paternal grandmother, Clarissa BIRD FOX WYATT raised her.
The
1880 Sevier County Census reflect that Roxie was living with Clarissa
Wyatt.
Apparently, Roxie's mother never married her father.
I can't find any record
of Martha Ann BAKER in the 1880 Census; does
anyone know what happened to
her from 1880 - 1922? Also, I was told that
Martha Ann was refered to as 'Dark' BAKER,is this one and the same person?
Lastly, tradition is that
Roxie was instrumental in her husband's
(James Leander McAndrew, b. 6 Dec
1871, Chestnut Hill, TN, d. 24 Feb 1896,
Chestnut Hill, TN) death. He died
from complications resulting from her
kicking him in the chest. Any information
on this?
Thank you.

Hello Genny,
I ran across your site
while surfing the net looking for family..
I see where some of your inquires
involve the Holladay name.
I do not know if you are aware of it, but Alvis
Milton Holladay, now
deceased, wrote a great book on the Holladay Family,
and he lived in
Brentwood, Tn. His widow still lives there, and his son lives
nearby.
They have some of these books still for sale, I think. Even if you
don't want to purchase one, I'm sure they would be glad to let you look
thru
it for info. This thing is huge, some 571 pages and well done.
Alvis was
a professior at Vanderbilt, I believe.
I did not see <your> Emma in there, I checked
my copy.
Another book available has been done by Herbert Weaver of Nashville,
on the Holladays. Best of luck in your searches. Isn't this fun ??
Best regards,

Robert E. Holladay,

GREEN, GREENE, JAMES, MORRIS, PRICE:

Subj: Green, Morris, Price Date: 97-12-19
From: LaurieJoy@aol.com
Daniel Price GREEN (gg-grandfather) born about
1830 in TN.
Was in the 1840 census for Lawerence Co.,TN. Married Virginia
MORRIS.
Possible brother: Samuel P. GREEN. Was also in 1840 Lawerence Co.
census. He married Cathrine MORRIS 4/9/46 in Lauden Co., TN.
Daniel and Virginia
moved to Texas by 1850, probably with Samuel and his
family.
Daniel is registered
in Parker Co., TX in 1870.
Their son, Sterling Price GREEN (g-grandfather)
was born in 1863 in Parker
Co.,TX. The middle name of PRICE is common in
this family, but I can't
find a direct connection. Who were Daniel's parents?
I have no information beyond Daniel.
And have absolutely none on Virginia
Morris.
Thank You,

I need any information on Allen MARTIN, who was born in Tennessee. During his youth, he may have been raised by his maternal grandfather, with the last name of REEVES. Allen married Nancy DRENAN about 1862 in Perry County,
Tennessee.
Nancy later married Abram BRILEY, and Robert RUSSELL, after Abram died. I also need information on the family of John CULVER and Sarah BAILEY. This couple settled in Bedford County, Tennessee.

LYNCH, DAVIS, WELLS, ROSE:

Subj: New Lynch Genealogy Pages Date: 97-12-23
From: jlynch@mail.edge.net
To: LYNCH-L@rootsweb.com
I have just
posted some Lynch family genealogy information at my web site http://personalweb.edge.net/~jlynch/famhist.htm
John Dillon Lynch and Katy
Davis were married probably in Virginia around
1790, and later they moved
to Kentucky.
Two of their sons, David Lynch and John Dillon Lynch, moved
to the Crow
Creek Valley, Franklin County, Tennessee around 1820.
David married
Elizabeth Wells in Kentucky in 1817.
One reference says they were married
in Glascgow, Ky; another reference
says Estill County, Ky.
I have not been
able to find any good documentation on either location.
My immediate family
is descended from David and Elizabeth.
The earliest Tennessee record I have
is the marriage of John Dillon LYNCH
to Elanor "Puss" ROSE in Franklin County in
1822.
John and Katy may have had other children.
I have some vague information
about them. Therefore, there is a "?" mark
beside their names.
I hope this
information may be useful to some of you, and I would greatly
appreciate
any light you may shed on my efforts thus far.
