Marie,
I, too, am searching for an
EDWARDS in the Wilson/Rutherford County area.
My great-grandmother was born in Rutherford County. Her father was John Edwards who had come to middle TN early on. He was from VA. His mother was a
Baily from VA, and his grandmother was a Mason from NC. This information comes from a published source that I have. My great-grandmother was Sibyl O. Edwards, and she married a Dr. Lucius Kennedy Weaver.
They lived in Obion Co for a time, but after Dr.Weaver's death, Sibyl lived near her son, Dr. John McManus Weaver, in Mt. Juliet, Wilson Co. This is really all I know about the EDWARDS.
In my searching, I have seen the name Boone Edwards, but I am not sure I remember where.
This information may not help you, but unfortunately, it is all I have for the moment.
Good luck with your search.
Fay Stengler

I have lots of information about the Baskin family which I would be glad to share. I am trying to track down the other families. My ggggrandmother, Rachel Rickett (d. 1862) was married to Robert McKinley Baskin. My gggrandmother, Mary Ann Patterson (1857-1949) was the daughter of Thomas Patterson (d. during Civil War). She was married to John Thomas Baskin. Thomas Patterson was married to Elizabeth Morgan. I am not sure where the Edwards family fits in, but my grandmother always talked about "Uncle Boone Edwards". My father (b. 1913) remembers as a child seeing  Uncle Boone. Any help on these families would be appreciated.

Dear Group,
After seeing Arvil Hancock"s message about his Grandfathers who donated land, I have something I would like to know too. My grandfather donated land to The Round Lick Methodist Church. John Garner three acres of land to Round Lick Methodist Church Trustees. 9/28/1827. Is this church still in existence?
Is Round Lick Creek still an area? If not, what is it called now? And something else I really need to know, what is a Lick.

Does anyone know anything about Eli Reed of Wilson County? He was born Nov. 24, 1813.
One of his children, Joseph s. Reed (b.Jan.18,1848), was my great grandfather. He seems to be somehow related to Margret Reed (b. July 24, 1771 d. Mar.28, 1875)
Does anyone know about Mary Vantrease (I believe daughter of William Vantrease) b. 1782 in NC and died in Wilson County. She married Isaac Grindstaff.
Does anyone have information on the Welch family of Wilson County?
Specifically, Rebecca Jane Welch (b.1838), who I think is the daughter of William Mitchell Welch (b. May 5, 1811 GA d. Mar.19, 1894 Rutherford Co., TN) and Mary C. Smith (Jan.7, 1808 d.July4,1868).

Are there any west Wilson County "locals" reading this list who might be familiar with small cemeteries around Central Pike, on the road between Suggs Creek and Mt.Juliet??
 My great-great grandparents, Hugh & Sarah Hearn Campbell had 345 acres here and I'm hoping to locate a small family cemetery where they may be buried. I have a copy of the actual deed "map" that shows the location of land when divided between heirs, when Hugh died intestate in 1867.

I am also interested in the above request. Joseph Crabtree died ca 1820 owning land on Drake's Lick which I believe is in northwestern Wilson county on the Cumberland River.
I am trying to find where he might be buried.

Reed/Vantrease/Welch/Bairds
I have more on the Grandstaff line than Mary's. In fact, until now, I only had her name. Here is what I have from my notes on Isaac:
There is an Isaac Granstaff listed in the 1830 Census for Wilson, Co, TN. It says he has 1 son under 5 years old; 2 sons between 10-15; 2 sons between 15-20; 3 sons between 20-30; He would be between 50 and 60 years old himself in 1830
From Thomas E. Partlow, Wilson County TN, Wills, Books 1-13, 1802-1850 (Easley, SC: Southern Historical Press, 1981:
p. 132 Isaac Grindstaff Will, 2 Dec. 1840, heirs:
wife Mary,
sons: John, David, Isaac, William, Nicholas, James D.,
daughters: Nancy, Matilda, Frances, Katherine Wheeler, Polly Fite, Elizabeth Turner, Martha Hearn.
Wits: Jacob Smith, William Boyd, William Vantrease.
James Young, executor.
Recorded 12/31/40 (p. 1456)
Drake's History of Wilson County (1879), p. 13, lists Isaac Grandstaff as a pioneer settler to the "Three Forks" Settlement on Round Lick Creek in Wilson County, Tennessee. Much of his children could have been in Smith County because by an act of the General Assembly, November 6, 1801, a thick part of Wilson County was detached and annexed to Smith County, TN. If he was a pioneer settler, it is likely he was from North Carolina. Virginia is also a good possiblity. The area was first settled by William Harris and William McSpadden in 1799 from North Carolina and James Wrather and Samuel King from Virginia. (History of Wilson County, TN, Dixon Merritt, editor.]
It is interesting to note that he named one of his sons (the only one listed) "William Bumpass Granstaff." William Bumpass was also in Wilson County. William Bumpass was from Smith's Fork (Statesville/Marysville) The first house built in Statesville was build by him. It was a 2-story log cabin about 1799-1804. He died about 1805. It was a tavern and the first post office was located in it. At one time it was painted and called the "Red House." It was torn down in 1947. William Bumpass was a revolutionary war veteran. Statesville, Wilson County's, 2nd oldest city was established as Marysville in 1812 in honor of William's wife Mary. Why Isaac named his son after him is unknown. I don't know what the relationship was. It would be useful to find out more about Mary Vantrease, Isaac's supposed wife from family recollection. It could be that Mary Vantrease is the grandaughter of William Bumpass and she named her son after him. Of course, this means that Mary was a daughter of a daughter of William Bumpass (prob. b. about 1729).
The only daughter I am aware of are Elizabeth, Unknown, and Ann of which did not marry Vantreases. It could be that Isaac and William were merely friends, even though William was much older.
From The History of Smith County, Tennessee (1987): "The name Grindstaff comes from the German spelling Crantzdorf. . . (Reeves, 92): He was on Carter Co., Tax List 1798; move with his family and that of Daniel Smith, to Wilson Co., in 1803.
From The History of Smith County, Tennessee (1987):
"Mary has been believed to have been a Smith, but in the Wilson Co. deeds there is a good reason to believe she was a Vantrease. In Wilson Co. in 1809 Johannes Vantrease deeded 187 acres to his son, Jacob, and an equal amount to Isaac Granstaff. Also the two families lived next to each in Carter Co., Tn. (1790 Tax list, Catherine Grindstaff lived next to John Vantrease. . ." p. 513 (F369).

Sandy,
I realy have no idea where you are talking about , But I do know about a Hearn Family Cemetery. It is between Watertown and Alexander. It is a lovely place,on a hill top, and sloping some. My aunt, uncle and one more family are buried there.They are Learnard and Pearl (George) Tribble and his mother . Do you think this may be the one? If so, I will find the records for you, or stir you to someone who has them.

LICKS
Dear Group,
Thanks to all of you who replied to my Lick question, and boy is my face red. Being a farm girl, I took many trips bumping across pasture land sitting on the back of an old truck dumping salt blocks (licks) off for our dairy cattle. This was in the old days before feed lots, when we still pastured our cows. I guess "lick" being a salt lick was just too simple, I kept imagining that "lick" must be of foreign origin like Loch for lake etc.

Leeman family
I am trying to connect the Henry Leeman family in Wilson Co. TN.
In 1815/16 he was in Madison Co. AL, but on Oct 5, 1820 he married Kesiah (Bizzy) Warren in Wilson Co. TN.
Children were:
Catherine (Kitty) m. ?? King
Martha m. ?? McMahan
Minerva
Thomas D. m. Pamelia ??
Enoch C. m. Cassandra ??
John M m. Elizabeth Emeline Ashworth Feb 26, 1850
Henry B.
Henry B. was the youngest, and according to the census was born in Missouri.
Thomas C. was b. in Alabama, and I think the rest were born in Tennessee.
Most of the children lived in Wilson Co at least in the 1850-1860 time frame. I know that Leemans are still living in the county.
I believe that at the time he went to Wilson Co. he may have had an aunt & uncle living there. Burrell and Peggy Leeman Patterson who both died in Wilson Co.
I also believe that one of Henry's grandchildren may have married a Phillips.
If there is anyone who is searching this family, or who might be able to help me find marriages, burials etc. please contact me.
Thanks for your help.

Are there any Wilson researchers out there that are working with any Taylor families that were in Wilson County in the early 1800s
 My gggg grandparents John GARNER and Susannah HALL's second daughter Polly GARNER married Thomas TAYLOR on the 25th of Dec 1821 at Lebanon, Wilson Co., Tennessee.
 My gggg grandmother on my TRACY side was Mary TAYLOR, daughter of Col. Thomas TAYLOR, who married Evan TRACY.
I am curious to find out if the two Taylors were connected. I and my Taylor cousins would love to hear from anybody out there that is also researching the Taylor family or families.

I think at least there are 1850, 1860, and 1870 published census of Wilson County. I have seen them at the Family History Library, but it's been a while since I looked at them. If you check the Family History Library Catalog if you have access to a FHC, you can get the publication information. Marriage BONDS (to ca. 1840's, I forget the exact dates) have been published. Marriage LICENSES after this time I have no knowledge of being published.

Stiles and later moved to Richland Co, IL by the 1830s.
Who were Hugh's siblings .. parents?? Hugh is thought to have been born in Scotland although it may have been his father. Hugh was possibly in Garrard Co, KY before coming to Wilson Co about 1803.
Does anyone have a Wilson (WIllson) family in this area with a daughter Caty or Catherine born about 1790?? I have lots of notes and will be glad to share anything I have. Any help will be greatly appreiated!

After her death he married Jane Ricketts January 25, 1865, had several more children, still alive in 1880.
I believe he was the son of William W. Carpenter, born in VA, left TN and moved to Illinois before 1850, but I have no proof.

Wilson County Chancery Records
I am researching the descendants of Julia Tarpley, daughter of Sterling Tarpley and Lucretia Pettypool of Wilson County, and Mitchell Childress.
Julia and Mitchell were married in Wilson County on Aug. 12, 1835. Their son Joseph Harrison Tarpley is mentioned in Sterling's will in March 1842. By 1859 court records indicate that the Childress family was living in Mississippi, but I have not been able to find them on a census. According to Partlow's abstracts from the Wilson County, Chancery Book for 1875-1876, presumed heirs of Julia Tarpley Childress, namely Albert Childress, Ambrosia Childress, Lewis Hurst, Julia L. Fee, J. H. Childress, Katie E. Childress, Charles D. Fee, and Theodore Childress, all non-residents, filed a complaint against E. Beasley regarding some land that Julia Tarpley Childress had inherited from her father. The chancery records are not on microfilm at the TN State Library and Archives, and the minute book gives very little information. At the beginning of his abstracts, Partlow states that the original chancery records were rescued by someone when Wilson County officials were destroying them and that the records are in private hands. Does anyone know who that private party might be and if these records are available to the public in any form?

RE:Thank You
Thank you for being so generous with the sharing of your resources. I would love to see more. Here are a couple that you probably already have. but just in case the first one has been invaluable to me doing guess work on "where did they go".

BLM, Bureau of Land Management - Eastern States, General Land Office
http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/

and MOA Making of America,
http://www.umdl.umich.edu/moa/index.html

and
http://mapping.usgs.gov/www/gnis/gnisform.html
to help you find the county for a particular town or village.

http://members.tripod.com/~GrannyGrump/cdlist.html
This one is great for people who are not using FTM as a genealogy program, a group of volunteers will do a limited look up on the CD's to determine if it is who you are looking for.

Census Central
http://wymple.gs.net/~longstrt/nc.html
limited look ups by volunteers on census records.

These are the ones I use a lot. I will pass along any new ones I find that are useful. Again Thanks for sharing.

Sara,
I'm sorry, but I can't help you with your request. However, I was hoping that you could possibly help me. I am researching a Meedes Tarpley Anderson who was born about 1851 in Wilson County. He was the son of Meedes P. Anderson. I have often wondered were his middle name Tarpley came from. Do you know of any relationship or friendship between the Anderson and Tarpley families?
Thank you for any help and happy hunting.

Subject: [TNWILSON-L] Wilson County Chancery Records
I am researching the descendants of Julia Tarpley, daughter of Sterling Tarpley and Lucretia Pettypool of Wilson County, and Mitchell Childress. Julia and Mitchell were married in Wilson County on Aug. 12, 1835. Their son Joseph Harrison Tarpley is mentioned in Sterling's will in March 1842. By 1859 court records indicate that the Childress family was living in Mississippi, but I have not been able to find them on a census. According to Partlow's abstracts from the Wilson County, Chancery Book for 1875-1876, presumed heirs of Julia Tarpley Childress, namely Albert Childress, Ambrosia Childress, Lewis Hurst, Julia L. Fee, J. H. Childress, Katie E. Childress, Charles D. Fee, and Theodore Childress, all non-residents, filed a complaint against E. Beasley regarding some land that Julia Tarpley Childress had inherited from her father. The chancery records are not on microfilm at the TN State Library and Archives, and the minute book gives very little information. At the beginning of his abstracts, Partlow states that the original chancery records were rescued by someone when Wilson County officials were destroying them and that the records are in private hands. Does anyone know who that private party might be and if these records are available to the public in any form?

James Turner
Am hoping someone out there has information on James Turner who at age 7 lost his father who was a blacksmith and fought in the Revolutionary War. (His father is said to have died in 1806) He had an older brother and sister. I have no information regarding his fathers name or his brother and sisters name .  
James was born 29 July 1799 in Buckingham County, Virginia and married Elsah Pendleton 16 Dec 1818. In 1823 he moved to Wilson County Tennessee with his mother who I believe was named Nancy. He was said to have lived there until 1830 working as a carpenter. He was also a farmer and blacksmith. In 1830 he, his wife and six children moved to Illinois.  
Willing to share info from when James was in Illinois, but have no info prior to that. Would love to hear from anyone who is familiar with this line.
Thank you for looking....Happy hunting to all.

Two week birthday
Well we're coming up on two weeks, and no major malfunctions yet... at least none that I am aware of. Nevertheless, there are a few things we can do to make this list better. Thanks to Bob Carver for bringing one of them to light. And let me be the first to publicly apologize if my replies to any of you are either slow coming or even worse non-existent. I have been covered up with queries from the Wilson Co. web site, and email from everywhere, in addition to trying to work on some of my lines when time permits.
The next thing we can do is to work on trimming up our quoted material. This problem has gone unnoticed by me until I by chance viewed one of the digests from TNWILSON (for the first time) this past week in another forum (Unfortunately, my ISP does not deliver the digest in the proper form... but instead I receive an email with a separate attachment for each individual message). But that's another matter. What I discovered when I finally saw one of the digests in its proper form, was that many of us either forget to edit our replies or are unaware that we are "quoting" in our replies. And the problem is compounded when one of us replies to a message from the digest form of TNWILSON, and we forget to delete the irrelevant "quoted" material from our reply. In other words, when one of us replies to a message in the digest, and we forget to trim up the quoted part of our reply, the entire digest will be reproduced to the list, which in turn reappears in the digest... you can see where this headed. If we don't get a handle on this quoting, eventually every message to the list will be a digest in and of itself.
Of course, some quoted material is needed to clarify what it is we are replying to, but as a general rule, the quoted material should not be greater than what our reply adds to the discussion. Nor should we include the tags which automatically appear at the end of each TNWILSON message. Delete those. There will be one added to your reply when it works its way through the rootsweb system.
Finally, I want to thank all of you have helped get this thing off the ground, and especially those who have helped me answer the questions I couldn't answer myself. And thanks to everybody that posted. It was kind of hectic those first few days, and I think we even ran a few off with the volume of mail that was generated, but things seemed to have settled down some.
Good luck, and don't forget to TRIM THOSE QUOTES!

REDNECK FAMILY TREE
-------------------
Many many years ago when I was twenty three
I got married to a widow who was pretty as could be
This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red
My father fell in love with her and soon the two were wed
This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life
My daughter was my mother for she was my father's wife
To complicate the matters worse, although it brought me joy,
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy
My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle, though it made be very sad.
For if he was my uncle then that also made him brother
To the widow's grown-up daughter who, of course, was my step-mother
Father's wife then had a son who kept them on the run
And he became my grandson for he was my daughter's son
My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue
Because, although she is my wife, She's my grandma too
If my wife is my grandmother, then I am her grandchild
And every time I think of it it simply drives me wild
For now I have become the strangest case you ever saw
As the husband of my grandmother I am my own grandpa!!

SHEPHERD & GREER in Lagardo, TN
I'm searching for the parents & siblings of Douglas Hardcastle SHEPHERD, b. abt. 1852. He married Mary E. GREER on Feb. 24, 1876 in Wilson Co., TN. Children were Newt, Johnson, Laura, Mae, Bonnie, Jenny, Kate, & Lillie. Douglas owned a casket making & hearse business in Lagardo, TN in Wilson Co. Douglas died in 1907 and is buried with Mary in the Old Lagardo Cemetery. Census records indicate one or both of Douglas' parents were born in NY.
Mary's father may have been Asa Greer (whom she and Douglas are buried near) or William Greer who is always living next to Mary & Douglas in each census. Both Douglas, Asa, & William listed their occupations as blacksmiths. Since Lagardo, TN was a small community, I suspect it was a family business. I'm just not sure who Mary Greer's parents are???
I would very much appreciate any infomation.

Mike Kearney,
I don't have anything on your Enoch, but I do have a William Harris JENKINS born circa 1788 at Fairfax or Loudoun, VA who named his fifth son Enoch H. "Doc" JENKINS. This Enoch was born 02 Apr 1821 at Fairfax, VA.
William H. Jenkins' married Tabitha Hughley and their other children were
named: (1) George William, (2) Lewis, (3) Martha Jane, (4) William H., Jr.,(5) Washington, (7) Samuel, (8) Nancy Ann, (9) Henry Thomas, (10) Charles Tyler and (11) Catherine Jemima JENKINS.
Between the time son Enoch was born (Apr 1821) and the time son Samuel was born (Sep 1841), the family moved to Wilson Co., TN. Samuel and thereafter all born in Wilson Co., TN. Enoch and before all born in VA.
Does your Enoch have a brother named William H. JENKINS? How about a brother named Charles T. JENKINS. I believe my William Harris JENKINS had a brother named Charles Tyler JENKINS (born abt 1813 in VA) who also came to Wilson Co. TN.

Gregory and Darnall of Wilson Co.
I can trace the GREGORYS back to 1700's in VA, but my g-grandfather's family seemed to fall off the face of the earth after the 1870 census in Wilson Co. I would like to know what happened to them.
My gg-grandfather was Thomas W. Gregory b. 1823 married Louisa Jane DARNALL in Sumner Co. 1845. Their children were James Davis, Elizabeth, John, Ellen, Emma, Allace, David, Edward, and Thomas Washington b. 1864. The Gregorys lived near Cairo. On the 1880 census Thomas Washington Gregory was living in Sumner Co. with his aunt and uncle, the Blakemores. Thomas Washington later married and settled in Sumner Co and is on all subsequent census.

Saulsbury
Researching
Edwards, O'Neal, and Hawkins families in Wilson County.
If my ancestor, when mustered into Civil War service, answered that he was born in Saulsbury (or Salisbury), Wilson County, Tennessee in 1823, where would that town have been? I see Saulsbury Road near the Smith County boarder, but no town of Saulsbury.  
Also, "Grandma" Hawkins supposedly died at age 113, about 1897, in Wilson County, but I have been unable to locate any record. Her maiden name may have been Dorcas Midget who first married an O'Neal, and second married a Hawkins. Her children were all O'Neal's.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Debbie
