Thanks for the quick response. I will forward my Barger and Hurt family group sheets. If you have anyone who needs help with Chicago or northern Illinois lookups, I will be happy to assist.
I think your idea of exchanging information with your students is terrific. I teach genealogy at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL, and I am going to try the same thing here.
Do you have anyone searching the BARGER family in Henderson and Carroll Counties in TN?

Subj: Nashville Date: 97-10-07
... I thought you might know the answer to a question that has puzzled my family since the Civil War. My g-g-g grandfather fought for the South, was discharged in Tupelo, MS, because he was sick, and too old, and was taken to Nashville where he died and is supposed to be buried. I have written letters several years ago while I was living in Arkansas to a couple of libraries in Nashville, and they said they could find no record of him in the Civil War Veteran's burial lists they searched. He actually would have been buried as a civilian, so which cemetery is that old and might have records that far back? His entire family was from Hickman County, Tennessee, although he had moved to Arkansas in 1852.
Subj: DANIEL GRAY, GONE TO TEXAS 1831 Date: 97-10-07
From: JXPV24B@prodigy.com (MR JAMES D GRAY)
I am researching my GGG Grandfather, Dajiel GRAY who war from Tenn.
He was borl ca 1790 and may have been a War of 1812 vet. He moved
to Texas in 1831, and was an original Texas Ranger under Capt. Tumilson;
fought in the Mexican Revolution and against Commanches.
He died in Bastrop Countx, TX, in 1847.
Question: Hjw do I find his father when I don't know his name? Early census records do not show family members, only heads of households. The 1830 and 1840 census leads me to believe he was from Davidson County, but nnw I'm lost and don't know where to turn. Any gtidance on how to track him?
I live in Covina, Calif., so I just can't go to Tennessee.
Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
James D. Gray
P.S. I can give more information on the Texas side of my family line if it will help.

Have you done the Soundex Search for Tennessee for the year 1900 ? If you have not, the Soundex Code for the name Free is < F600>
Get to an LDS Family History Center near you somewhere and ask a staff member to help you order this film. There is a Catalogue for the Soundex Films there, and this coded name will be somewhere in one of the films. It will list all the Free's in Tenn. at the time of that Fed. Census. The people at the FHC will help you get started searching the film. Pay special attention to any Free name you should find in (Sevierville) Sevier Co. or any of the counties around that county. Any map will tell you all the County Names. It takes about 10 days for the films to come in from Salt Lake. The films cost $3.25 for use for about 60 days.
This should lead you to your Jackson FREE or to his parents or other relatives. If there is no success with this year's Soundex, then go to the 1910 Soundex also. If I can help you further on the even older family lines, please e-Mail me.
Best of luck...Diane G.

Subj: Hello Date: 97-10-24
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Higgins, Cynthi)
I have been searching the Web for info on the Weakley family and found your page.
I am a decendant of the Weakley family of Madison County, VA.
My grandfather was Kelly Buster Weakley(born abt. 1911) and married Georgia Ellen Seymour (born May 1914).
My great-grandfather was Hubert Weakley(born abt. 1870?) who married Neva ????. I haven't had much luck researching this family, since most all of the older Weakley relatives are dead.
Does the Weakley family that is currently in TN have ancestors from VA or PA?
I also cannot find the book on the Weakley family by Samuel Weakley.
I understand that this is not really a published book, but a handwritten manuscript.
Any information you can give me for Weakleys in VA would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for my g-g-grandfather, Robert McCoy BILLS. b. January 31,1816 in Nashville, Tenn.
He married Rebecca ? July 20,1841 in Lawrence County, ILL.
They lived in Jamestown Wisconsin until 1852 when they came overland to California.They both died in Wyandotte California.
I have not been able to find Robert McCoy BILLS' parents. He might have had a brother (?) Alexander W. Bills, also born in Nashville, Tenn.
I would appreciate any help.

Subj: Queries Date: 97-10-31
From: Gscomman@ntslink.net (email updated 15 Feb 1999)
I am searching for Thomas SIMMONS and his wife Mary Ann WALKER.
They appear in the 1820 Census of Wayne County Tennessee. They have seven children. Three we know of are:
Wiley Simmons, and
They were born in North Carolina in the 1800's in or around Bertie County. The children came to Tennessee while still young.
We do not know where Thomas SIMMONS is before 1820 as he does not appear in any Census of Tennessee or North Carolina in the counties listed. They may be in surrounding counties.
Thomas SIMMONS was born about 1765 in Bertie County North Carolina. Was married there and moved to Tennessee. The children grew up in Tennessee and married in Wayne county.
Peter SIMMONS married a Cynthia HARVEY.
Cynthia's Father was Thomas G. HARVEY from Georgia.
Lewis SIMMONS and Wiley SIMMONS married sisters Sarah Ann ERVING and Mary Ann ERVING.
Their parents were Hezekiah ERVING and Polly SIMMONS. They were born in North Carolina also. They came to Wayne county Tennessee where they were married about 1825 to 1831.
In 1832 Wiley and Lewis SIMMONS moved to Cape Giradeau Missouri.
Thomas stayed in Wayne County Tennessee untill about 1843, when Peter and Thomas moved to Johnson County Illinois.
Wiley and Peter Simmons moved to Johnson County Illinois in 1836.
Any help would be appreciated.
