Hello Dene:
I may - or may not - have a
Porterfield family line. The jury is still so far out on this question that it is out with the tide. However, I do have a source that you might find helpful. The Porterfield family is covered in a book, "The Porterfields" by Frank Burke Porterfield, Southeastern Press, Roanoke, VA., which is out of print. However, a Porterfield researcher has the book on computer and may be able to help you with your search.
Contact Paul L. Porterfield, 173 Bentwood Drive, Boerne, TX 78006-1901,
telephone 830-249-3491. Mr. Porterfield is of the line of John Milton Porterfield.
Two other Porterfield researchers who may be able to help are Margaret P. Singleton, Rte. 1, Box 271B, Arkadelphia, AR 71`923 and Jack Sayles, 118 Sales Blvd., Abdeve, TX 79605.
Good luck with your search.

Greg,
I noticed you live in the same town as my ggrandparents did. I have copies of the marriage records of W.H. (Wm Henderson) JOPLIN & (Sarah) Malina HANKINS, Marraige BK 1876-1884, pg 34, No 209 and her parents Alfred HANKINS & Louraney L. (Lizabeth) WIER, Marriage BK 1838-1854, pg 300, No 138. I would pay you to find a death record for Louraney (believed to have been around 1857, possibly as a result of giving birth to Sarah Malina. And the marriage record of Alfred to his 2nd wife Orpha Thompson, belived to have been around 1860.
I will pay for copying & postage. I am not in a big hurry so if the next time you were in the courthouse anyway and had time to look for these, I would appreciate it. If you can not, that is ok... Sorry for imposing.
Sincerely,
Sherry Noeller,

Unfortunately, I don't have time to fill requests such as this. I wish I could, but I get at least one a day, and I just can't find time to do them. Heck, I can't find time to do my own.

Friends of Metro Archives Web site.

We have the beginnings of the Index of Original Wills of Davidson Co., on line, Aaron through Ezell. This is a listing of the extant original wills that were filed with the probate court. If you do not find the person you are seeking in the index it is still important to check the index for the Will Books as the original will may no longer exist. The link is on the main page at the URL given above. Go to the look-up page to find a link to the online Davidson County Marriages and for information on the records we can do lookups in.
Also check our links pages for some very good links for Davidson Co., and Tennessee research.

Re: SULLIVANs in Wilson County
I am trying to research my SULLIVAN line and I'm just getting started. My great-grandmother was Mary Emma Dow SULLIVAN b. 10 Mar 1861 d. 1 July 1935. She married George Lutcher LANE in Wilson County in Nov 1877. Her parents were Francis "Bub" SULLIVAN and Sarah. They are on page 669 of the 1870 Wilson County Census as Francis SULLIVAN age 42, Sarah age 33, Thomas C. age 14, Mary age 8, Elija H. age 6, and Eddie L. age 3 (F). This is District #24, Rural Hill. Mary Dow and George moved to Sumner County sometime after they married. If this helps, Mary Dow is supposedly some relation to the famous boxer, John L. Sullivan. This is all I have about them. If you have a connection or you are also researching SULLIVANs, I would like to hear from you.
Thanks,
Rob

Carol,
Well, as you can read from the list reply...he wasn't able to help and I do understand. I can imagine anyone living in TN, KY and VA would get a lot of request due to the amt. of history there. I will cont to search. Mom sent me the info. on Orpha's first marriage which I sent to the list as you have no doubt by now seen. There seems to be some misconception "out there" about Sarah Malina being the d/o Orpha & Alford/Alfred Hankins. But I have copies of her (Sarah) death cert. which states her mother was Lou Raney Ware. On the marr. cert. her surname is Louraney L. (Lizabeth?) WIER and I figure she should know but on Sarah's death cert. her mother's name is WARE. I'm sure this comes from the son who gave the info. because his legal, "born with" name was "Little Willie White Ware" and he was called Little Willie. On his headstone it just states; L.W.W.W. Joplin. We believe that Louraney died in 1857 givng birth to Sarah Malina who was called "Lina" but never "Minnie" as has been reported in printed form over the years....
Thanks for your interest and good wishes,
Sherry
Beaumont, TX
P.S. I will, as I have the time, look for info. for anyone who had ances.who came to TX. I have access to (limited amt.) Collin Co. & Nacogdoches Co. records which is where many people entered Texas. I will search for free and request only $$ for mailing & copying.

Douglass/Organ Line
About 1834 my ancestors came to Wilson County from Halifax Co, VA.
Hamilton DOUGLASS and his wife, Mary GILL Douglass, lived in this county until 1859 when they made the move to Collin County, Texas. Probably they came to Wilson County to follow Mary's uncles, Raleigh ORGAN, Simpson ORGAN, Robert ORGAN, Cornelius ORGAN and Ennis ORGAN, who arrived about 1810 from Halifax Co, Virginia.
I would like to hear from anyone else who is working on these ancestral lines. I have quite a bit of information but would always like to have more to fill in the empty spaces!!
Hamilton DOUGLASS b. 8 Jun 1803 VA d. 18 Dec 1872 TX m. 27 Dec 1827 VA Mary "Polly" GILL b. 3 Jun 1806 VA d. 27 Oct 1888 TX

Mary Douglas b. 1839 TN
Elijah Houston Douglas b. 8 Apr 1840 TN d. 19 May 1888 TX m. 13 Jan 1864 TX Amanda A. WILSON

Josephine Douglas b. 1845 TN
Raleigh White Douglas b. 22 Mar 1847 TN d. 13 Nov 1920 TX m. 12 Mar 1872 TX Charles Emma Lewis
Note: The Horn, Forbis and Wilson families who married into this Douglas line also lived in Wilson County before the move to Collin and Grayson Counties in Texas.

I am not desc. from the Thompson line but she was the step-mother to my ggg-grandmother, Sarah Malina Hankins. I am seeking the marriage info. to estab. that they were married after the birth of Sarah in 1857 which I believe resulted in the death of her mother, Louraney (Weir) Hankins.

Re: Douglass/Organ Line
Shirlie,
I was interested in your message because my William Douglass was in Wilson County with his wife Phebe Unknown at the same time as your Hamilton Douglass. William's birthplace was also Virginia. Two of the children of William and Phebe were Rhoda and J.C.
  Rhoda was born in Tennessee in 1830 and married Cornelius Harkreader of Wilson Co. Tennessee. Rhoda and Cornelius were in Seguin Texas ( Guadalupe Co.) by 1860 and her parents and brother were also in Texas. William Douglass died in Texas 23 September 1874 and Phebe died 25 June 1890.

Jolene,
There were several Douglas(s) families in Wilson County about the same time as ours. The 1840 Wilson County census showed Pleasant Douglas, J. C. Douglas and Asa Douglas...and I'm pretty sure Asa was from Pittsylvania Co, VA. That county is next to Hamilton County where my own Douglass lived.
Is anyone researching the families of Pleasant, J.C. or Asa Douglas?

BOULTON / ANDREWS / ORGAN / BELL
Hi Shirley,
My GGM was Hattie ORGAN, 2nd wife of Samuel Franklin Organ. I don't have a lot of information on the Organ family, however - as they are not my direct line.
Hattie Cornelia Boulton was born 1866, Wilson Co., TN, the d/o Napoleon Bonapart BOULTON and Lucy Jane WILLIAMS. Hattie's parents were both born and raised in Smith Co., TN - moving to Wilson Co. about 1865.
The children of Napoleon B. Boulton & Lucy Jane Williams Boulton were:
1.Ella BOULTON (1864-) m. William MOORE
*2.Hattie Cornelia BOULTON (1866-1951) m. #1 Alfred Samuel ANDREWS. #2 Samuel Franklin ORGAN
3. Charlie Henry BOULTON (1870-1924) m. Amzie __?__
4. Julia BOULTON (1873-) m. Morgan GIBBS
5. Lettie BOULTON (1875-1924) m. Alfred D. ANDREWS
6. William BOULTON(1877-) m. Laura ORGAN
7. Jessie BOULTON (1879-) m. Mr. THORNE
8. Sam BOULTON (1881-1942) [single]
9. Carrie BOULTON (1885-1968) m. #1 Mr. JONES. #2 Mr. BRADLEY
10. Bertha BOULTON (1888-)
11. Lillard BOULTON (1890-1924)
12. Alexander BOULTON (1880-1924)
13. Oscar BOULTON (-1924)

  Shirley,
I'd be very interested in discussing the Organ line with you. Perhaps I have some information that you're missing. I'm interested in the fact that Samuel Franklin Organ's mother was a BELL. Hattie's maternal line had a Bell marriage in Smith Co., TN. I'd also like to know if you know the Laura Organ who married William Boulton. Are there any Wilson or Smith Co. ANDREWS researchers on this list? I would really like more information re Alfred D. ANDREWS who married Lettie "Siddie" Boulton, b. 1875. I've always thought it odd that sisters Hattie & Siddie both married an Alfred Andrews, differentiating only by a middle initial.

Francie,
Thanks for the information on Hattie Boulton Andrews, 2nd wife of Samuel Franklin Organ. Here is the ancestry of Samuel Franklin Organ:
Great Grandfather:
Samuel Organ b. abt 1755 d. bef 1813 Halifax Co, VA m. Sarah Simpson (dau of John Simpson & Hannah_____)
Grandfather
Raleigh Organ b. ca 1790 Halifax Co, VA d. 1863 m. 1. Nancy Ferrell 11 Aug 1810 Sumner Co TN
Father:

Samuel Franklin Organ b. 1850 Wilson Co TN d.? m. 1Mary J. _____(Hatcher?) abt 1874
Children: James A. Organ b. 1875 TN m. Fannie____
Emma S. Organ b. abt 1877
John A. Organ b. abt 1878
Jesse W. Organ b. 1880 Wilson Co TN
 m. 2. Hattie Cornelia Boulton Andrews
Children: Ernest Organ b. 1889 TN
Earl Organ b. 1893TN
Cecil Organ b. 1896 TN
Dewey S. Organ b. 1898 TN m. Pauline M.____
Raymond Organ b. 1900 Wilson Co TN
Chester Organ b. 1903 TN
Iona Organ b. 1905 TN
(Note: according to the 1900 census, Hattie had born only 2 children (Cecil & Dewey) so Ernest & Earl may or may not be her sons.)
There is one possibility for the Laura Organ who married William Boulton:
Laura B. Organ b. Nov 1882 in TX, the daughter of Joseph H. Organ, son of Ewing Wilson Organ and Sarah Irby, grandson of Simpson Organ (brother of Raleigh Organ, father of James Frazier Organ). Although Joseph and his family were in Texas, they were originally from Wilson Co, TN, so may have known the Boulton family. She's the only "Laura" I see in the Organ family data I have.

Probably had 10 children, but I've only got names for 4 of them: Edward B. WHEELER, John W. WHEELER, Elizabeth WHEELER (m. Wm.

ANDREWS / BOULTON / ORGAN
Shirley,
Thank you for the Organ family information. I want to correct some of the data on Samuel Franklin Organ, who was known as "Sam" Organ. Sam's youngest daughter, Iona, is my Great Aunt and I've been fortunate enough to have many conversations with her through the years. She was my grandfather's half-sister, so I was always more interested in her Boulton line that the Organs, but here's what she told me about her father and her siblings.
Sam Organ was born in 1850, Wilson Co., TN. and married a Mary J. (?)Hatcher. They had children:
Emma Organ - who married Dr. Smart
Laura Bell Organ - who married William Boulton
Bill Organ
Jim Organ
Alfred Organ
JERRY Organ - note: you show him as "Jesse", so "Jerry" may have been a nickname???
There may have been more than 6 children, as you'll see below a newspaper article about a "young" son who died. All of these Organ children by Mary J. were adults by the time Iona was born, so she may not have known about a young son who died. She said that the early Organ family came from VA and were carpenters by trade. The Organ's had their own cemetery located in Hartsville. (amid what is now other people's property)
Here's my side of the family as it intertwines with yours...
Alfred Samuel Andrews, known as "Sam" Andrews, was b. 1852, Holmes Co., MS. and lived there until his early 20's. He moved to Smith Co., TN in 1875 to marry his fiance, Nannie G. Johnson, d/o James W. Johnson & Nancy BRADFORD of Smith Co. Nannie died 18 months later in 1877.
Widower Sam Andrews taught school in Wilson Co., TN and married Hattie Cornelia BOULTON on July 30, 1882. Sam was 30 years old, and Hattie was 16. Hattie was a very beautiful woman and was called "The Belle of South County". They moved back to Sam's hometown in Holmes Co., MS where their first 2 children were born: Mary Otheldra Andrews, b. 1884; and my grandfather, Boyd Kelley Andrews, b. 1885. In 1888, the family was once again living in Wilson Co., TN, and their 3rd child, Alfred "Ernest" Andrews was born.
Sam Andrews and Sam Organ were best friends. Sometime between 1880 and 1893, Mary J. Organ died. There was a Lebanon newspaper article on Feb. 2, 1893, "The young son of Sam Organ, one of our old citizens, but living now at Hartsville, died last Tuesday night". Sam Andrews disappeared in the late summer or fall of 1893. Hattie was pregnant with their 4th child, Earl Lester Andrews. On Feb. 3, 1894, Wilson Co., TN Sam Organ married Hattie Andrews. Sam & Hattie Organ had the following children:
Samuel "Cecil" Organ, b. 19 Jun 1896
Sampson "Dewey" Organ, b. 11 May 1898 - m. Pauline Brown
Charles "Raymond" Organ, b. 28 Jul 1900 - d. abut 1919
Chester Arthur Organ, b. 28 Sep 1901 - d. 1977, TN
Iona Jane Organ, b. 1905
The 1900 Census Wilson Co. shows Samuel F. Organ, wife Hattie, with her children Ernest & Earl Andrews; and "their" children Cecil & Dewey Organ. 1900 Smith Co., TN Census shows the 2 older Andrews children, Mary & Boyd as teenagers living with Hattie's sister, Julia Boulton Gibbs. I can't explain Hattie's answer to the census taker of having had 2 children. At that time, she had given birth to 4 Andrews and 2 Organ children and all were living.
Hattie had 3 more Organ children after the 1900 Census. Iona once told me her father, Sam Organ had 6 children, her mother Hattie had 4 children with Sam Andrews, and 5 children with Sam Organ, so between Hattie & Sam Organ, they raised 15 children in all.
Hope this information will be of help to you.

Continuing the information on the Organ family, early settlers of Wilson County: They were traditionally carpenters by trade and very proud of it. A descendant of James Frazier Organ (1821-1902), once said he was told if he had been a carpenter, he would have been the 8th generation of his line to have that occupation.

5 sons of Samuel Organ (of Halifax County, Virginia) came to Wilson County before 1810. Two of them eventually moved to Lawrence Co, Illinois. The others stayed and many of their descendants were still in Wilson County in the 1920 census.

TN in the late 1830s and intermarried with the Joseph & Sarah Mooney Green family before 1840. 
Now to your question. The Readers had two children to marry into the Nathan Wheeler familly. Harris Reader to ----------- Wheeler & Catharine Reader to Drummend Wheeler. The Harris Reader marriage came from a Civil War Questuionaire by, I believe, Doke Young of Cherry Valley. This work was done many years ago.

Nathan WHEELER / COMPTON
To Bob and all the list,
I appreciate your response so much. Now I know that Drummond WHEELER did come to Wilson Co. I am a descendant of the COMPTONS of Culpepper Co., VA also, through Edward COMPTON, the brother of the Matthew that you mention in your response. Edward married Rebecca MURFREE (Murphy) in 1799 in VA and I think he died in Wilson Co. I know that Charles COMPTON, the son of your Matthew, died in 1855 in Wilson Co. and another of Matthew's sons, Howard, died in 1866 in DeKalb Co.
I have been searching for years for a complete list of the children of this said Edward COMPTON. I am reasonably certain that he had one daughter named Elender (Eleanor) b. 1809, m. Samuel PATTON, and think that the Margaret COMPTON who married Joseph PATTON was another daughter. I'm descended from both of these COMPTON girls and it's always so difficult searching through female lines. I would dearly love to hear from anyone with any information on any of the COMPTONS of Wilson Co.
Thanks again for your response,
Liz

Hankins/Joplin of Wilson Co.,TN
Hello all,
I wanted to pass this information on as it may be useful to others searching these lines:
 << Sherry:
I know you probably have these dates but anyone who looks at them, in sequence, can hardly believe that Orpha Thompson is the mother of Sarah Malina and John Lilliard. Sure would like to correct that error. It has spread like the plague because of the erroneous records in the LDS.
Alford Hankins and Louraney Weir married, in Wilson Co., 25 Oct. 1854
Sarah Malina Hankins was born, in Wilson Co., 3 Mar. 1857
John Lilliard Hankins was born, in Wilson Co. 5 Aug. 1855( died 2 July 1838, is buried in Pecan Grove Cem. in Collin Co. Tx)
Alford Hankins and Orpha Thompson were married, in Wilson Co., 30 Nov. 1859
William Henderson Joplin, and Sarah M. Hankins were married, in Wilson Co., 12 Oct 1876
John Lilliard Hankins was married, in Wilson Co., to A. E. Hankins ( a cousin) 11 Oct 1876
Note that they married one day apart.
Apparently" Uncle Lilliard " as he was known in the family, came to Collin Co. when Bill Joplin ( as he was called) and "Lina" came to Texas. I don't know the exact date that they came. I know Little Willie was born in Ky in 1888, I wish I knew why they went to Kentucky, and GrGrFather Bill Joplin died in Collin Co. in 1901 so I imagine they came about 1899 because Goode was born in Texas in 1900.. I don't know if Lilliard brought his two little girls, in the 1880 census of Wilson Co it says:
Lilliard 25, A. E. 27, Viola 2 and Charlotte 1. At any rate his headstone says "Daddy" and that sortof hints that one or both of his children arranged for it. I have not personally seen the headstone, got this out of a cemetery survey of Collin Co. Don't know if it is in Wiley or where, thought you might. The A. E. Hankins that Uncle Lilliard married was his cousin, Arta Elizabeth "Artie" Hankins, dau of James C. Hankins and Elizabeth Nettles.
Artie was born 31 Oct 1852 and she died 21 Jan. 1899. She is buried off of Lindsey Road, off of Watertown Rd. This information was just recently sent to me by Chuck Hankins, He has researched this family for years and I am grateful for what he has sent already I trust his work because every Hankins researcher I have ever had contact with has quoted him and respected him. He gets to go to Wilson Co. and talk to the descendents still living, some quite old. I envy him.
Chuck told me about "Hankins Hill". It is a family cemetery on one of the Hankins farms and has about 8 or 9 graves in it. It is south of Lebanon about 4 or 5 miles and is on the old Thomas Hankins farm.. It is a steep hill and one gets to it by parking by the house and walking out pass the chicken house and up the pasture to the top of the hill, probably 400 or 500 yards. The farm is just off of Tater Peeler Rd.

<<I just sent that info to you, but one thing I meant to mention and forgot to, I have never heard a whisper about what happened to Alford Jr. and the other kids Alford had with Orpha., have you? In Alfords application for pension he mentioned that a dau lived with him, that she had been in the Aslyum, but was "alright now". He called her Lutitia.I believe this is one of Orpha's kids she had when she married Alford. Sure wish we could find out when he died and where he is buried. He was a pauper. He served 3 years in the CSA. He deserves a headstone and you can get one free, if we can only find him. >>

(NOTE: Alfred Hankins served in Co. G, 4th Reg't. (McLemore's) TN Cav, enlisted Jan 3, 1862, Camp Cheatham by Capt. O'Hara. He also served in Capt. Andrew McGregor's Co., 3 Reg. TN Cav..

I have read your posts about the COMPTON family and realized I belong to that family also. I descend from Joseph GREEN & Sarah MOONEY. Their son Shadrack GREEN married Mary Ann COMPTON. Their son Matthew Compton GREEN married Harriet Mullican. I have more information on the Green family which I am willing to share, but would like more information on COMPTON & MOONEY. Was Mary Ann the daughter of Matthew Compton & Nancy VAUGHN?
As to the REEDER(READER) family: I was interested in Lydia MORGAN who married Benjamin REEDER. I have an Elizabeth MORGAN who married Thomas PATTERSON. I have no dates for them, but their son fought for the Confederacy. They lived in the Hurricane Creek (Norene, TN) area of Wilson County. Could Elizabeth have been Lydia's sister?

Early Wilson County locations
The early settlements in Wilson Co., TN are discussed in the book, "The Record of a People - an Historical Sketch of Wilson Co., Tennessee" by James V. Drake with essay by G. Frank Burns. Below is a list of settlements described in the book along with some of the early settlers. I have only listed those settlers that may be my ancestors.

1st permanent settlement was in 1794 on Hickory Ridge Spencer's Creek located 5 miles west of Lebanon. The 2nd settlement was at Spring Creek located 8 miles south of Lebanon in 1796. Bartlett Graves was one of the settlers there. The other settlements begun around 1796 were:

Stoner's Lick Creek
John G. Graves
Benjamin Graves

Sugg's Creek
William Rice
Thomas Drennon

Pond's Lick Creek
John Rice

Hurricane Creek
Robert Edwards
John Edwards

Fall Creek
Aaron Edwards
John Edwards

Round Lick - Branch
James Edwards

I would like to know where these sites are located, and, of course, I would like to know about the people I have listed, if any one has any information about them. I have searched some maps of Wilson County, but some of the creeks travel for some distance, making it difficult to pinpoint a settlement site. I would be interested to know where the sites are located in reference to Lebanon and Mt. Juliet where my Wilson County ancestors lived.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Bowers Genealogy
Donna,
About the surname Bowers: there was a Green C. Bowers who married Susan Forbis in 1835, Wilson Co. She was the daughter of Arthur Forbis and Rachel Carruth b. abt 1817.
I believe some of her children were living with her brother, Thomas C. Forbis, in 1860 in Collin County, Texas, where many of these families moved about 1855-1860. The son's name was Hacksworth Bowers (b. abt 1843) and the daughter's name was Elizabeth R. Bowers (b. abt 1848).
Does this sound like they are connected to your line?

This excerpt from
"Tennessee The Volunteer State" Vol 1 gives a very general idea where some of the early settlements were located within Wilson County.

WILSON COUNTY
Wilson County and Smith County were erected on the same day, October 26, 1799, from a part of Sumner County. Wilson County was named for Maj. David Wilson, a native of Pennsylvania, who came to Sumner while it was yet a part of North Carolina, and had been the first speaker of the Territorial Assembly.

The first court of the county was held on December 23, 1799, at the house32 of Capt. John Harpool (or Harpole), and was organized by the following named magistrates:
Charles Cavenaugh,
John Alcorn,
John Lancaster,
Elmore Douglas,
John Doak,
Matthew Figures,
Henry Ross,
Wm. Gray,
Andrew Donelson, and
Wm. McClain.

The following named officers were elected: Charles Cavenaugh, chairman; Robt. Foster, clerk; Chas. Rosborough, sheriff; Wm. Gray, ranger; and John Alcorn, register. Be. Seawell, Esq., was appointed county solicitor, and John C. Hamilton qualified as a practicing attorney.

The first settlement in the county was at Drake's Lick on the Cumberland River and was made in 1797, by John Foster and Wm. McClain.

In 1799, a settlement was made on Spring Creek, seven miles southeast of Lebanon by John Foster, Wm. Donnell, and Alexander Barkley, or Barclay.

In the same year a settlement was made at Round Lick by Samuel King, James Prather, Wm. McSpadden and Wm. Harris,

and on Spring Creek eight or nine miles south of Lebanon by David Magathey, Foster Doak, John Doak, Alexander Braden, and the Donnells.

After 1800 immigrants came in constantly increasing numbers.

Robin Shannon, Lee Harrelson, John Ozment, John Spinks, John Rice, and others settled at Pond Lick
.
Jacob Vantrease, Thomas B. Reece, John Caplinger, Edmund Jennings, John Patton, George Hearn, James Edwards, Duncan Johnson, Daniel Smith, Isaac Grandstaff, Evans Tracy, William Neal, Shelah Waters, Joseph Barbee, Solomon Bass, John Lawrence, Jordan Bass, John Green, Wm. Coe, John Phillips, William Haines, Arthur Hawkins, Benj. Phillips, and John W. Peyton located at Round Lick.

Martin Talley, Wm. Sherrill, Pernell Hearn, James Cannon, John Jones, Benj. Mottley, Henry Chandler, Adair Harpole and Gregory Johnson on Spring Creek.

Robert Jarmon, Lewis Merritt, David Fields, Jonathan Ozment, Dawson Hancock, and Seldon Baird on Sinking Creek.

Absalom Knight, John Gibson, Charles Cummings, Henry Mosier, John Merritt, Frank Young, Joseph Stacey, and Charles Warren on Hurricane Creek.

Frank Puckett, William Lester, John Donnell, Lord Sellers, John Alsup, Aaron Edwards, Sampson Smith, Jacob Jennings, and William Warren on Fall Creek.

Hooker Reeves, Joseph Weir, Lewis Chambers, Nathan Cartwright, William Wilson, Matthew Figures on Cedar Creek.

Joseph Castleman, Joseph Hamilton, Thomas Drennon, Benj. Dobson, Aquila Suggs, and Benj. Hooker on Suggs' Creek.

Clement Jennings, James H. Davis, Thomas Davis, Joshua Kelley, Harrison Hays, Theophilas Bass on Cedar Lick Creek.

Geo. L. Smith, Wm. Oakley, Charles Rich, Reason Byrne, Abner Bone, Jas. McAdoo, Edward Pickett, John Adams, David Ireland on Smith Ford.

Caleb Taylor, Jas. Hunter, Joseph Kirkpatrick, Daniel Glenn, Sterling Tarpley, and Wm. Saunders on the Cumberland River.

The first white male child born in the county was probably Josiah McClain, who was County Court clerk for more than forty years.

Lawyers who practiced in the courts of Wilson County in the first years were: Jesse Wharton, Nicholas Perkins, John B. Johnson, Lemuel Herrod, John Dickinson, Charles Smith.

In 1802 the court was held at the house of Henry Turner on Barton Creek. Lebanon was chosen as the county seat in 1802, and was located on land previously belonging to James Menees. It was named for the Biblical Lebanon because, like the ancient city, it was remarkable for its cedars. It was incorporated in 1807. Neddie Jacobs, a peculiar character and a fiddler, was the first settler on this site. Tradition says he was living there as early as 1800.

The earliest physicians were: Drs. Samuel Hogg, Edmund Crutcher, and Henry Shelley. Doctor Shelley built the first brick house in Lebanon in 1812. John Alcorn was the first postmaster and John Trotter the first school teacher. The first church was erected by the Methodists in 1802, and Rev. German Baker was the pastor.

>From December, 1802 to 1806, the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions met at private houses. In 1806 the first courthouse, of cedar logs, was built. The first session of the Circuit Court was held at the courthouse on September 24, 1810, Judge Thomas Stewart presiding. 
Early Circuit judges were: Thomas Stewart, 1810-1830; James C. Mitchell, 1830-1835; Samuel Anderson, 1835-1852.

Lebanon and Wilson counties have been justly celebrated for educational facilities from the establishment of the first school, taught by Benj. Alexander, in 1800, to the present day. Among their institutions are or have been: Campbell Academy, Brevard College, Abby Institute, Carroll Academy, Corona, Greenwood Seminary, Castle Heights School and Cumberland University.

Revolutionary soldiers who settled in Wilson County were:
James Scott,
Jeremiah McWhirter,
Anthony Gann,
Philip Shackler,
John Harpole,
John Dabney,
Edward Mitchell, and
John Wynn.

Wilson County sent two companies to the War of 1812 under command of
Capt. John Hayes and Capt. Charles Wade,
among whose soldiers were:
Fred Askey,
Joseph Settle,
George Dillard,
William Norman,
William Hartsfield,
Lawrence Sypert,
Zachariah Tolliver,
Wm. Sypert,
Kit Seaburn,
James Carson,
William Meyers,
Wm. Martin,
Grief Randolph,
T. K. Ramsey,
John Shackleford, and
William Harrison.

A company under Capt. J. J. Finley went from Wilson County to the Seminole war in 1836, and another company went, in 1837, under Capt. W. L. S. Dearing.
Among these troops were:
T. J. Stratton,
Jno. D. Mottley,
John Wilbury,
P. Hern,
J. N. Kennedy,
Dawson Hancock,
W. W. Talley,
Nathan Oakley,
Geo. W. Lewis,
E. S. Smith,
Lewis Pendleton,
Wm. Watkins,
J. H. Kennedy,
Samuel T. Powers, and
John Alexander.

Two companies also took part in the Mexican war under Captains Hayes and Smith.

To anyone interested in Tennessee history, I can reccommend the new
"Tennessee Encyclopedia of History & Culture", put out this summer by the Tennessee Historical Society. It's quite hefty and well worth the $30 I paid. I understand that the Historical Society will benefit more if it's ordered from them, but I think most of the larger bookstores have it.

Fay:
Thank you for posting the info on the early settlements in Wilson County. I have been trying to find the location of a Mill Creek and would appreciate hearing from anyone who might know about it. Also, I am wondering if some of my Martin, Robertson, and Thompson ancestors were originally on the Sumner Co. side of the Cumberland River as these same surnames also appear in early records there.
Do people on this list have a sense of whether there was much movement, socializing, etc.back and forth across the river?
Were the migration patterns into Wilson County by way of the river or across land?
Thanks,
