HATFIELD, WILLIS, CROOK, LOVEDAY, SPURGEON, KELLY, BIRD:
Subj: queires Date: 98-02-06
I am looking for information on John HATFIELD of Campbell County, TN.
He was my 5 X great grandfather. Apparently he moved there from Russell Co., VA.
I have no info on wife/wives. Number of children? 15-22, apparently married at least twice. Some of children:
Andrew Warren HATFIELD,
Ephriam HATFIELD, (possibly Anderson's "Devil Anse" great grandfather. Need proof of that),
Jerimaih (Jerry) HATFIELD ( my 4 x great grandfather.)
Would like all the info I can get on John HATFIELD: Wives, any other children, who Ephriam married and if he is really Anderson's gr. grandfather.
Am also researching family of Andrew Jackson WILLIS (Del Rio, Cocke County, TN) and Leah CROOK WILLIS. Leah was from GA and her father's name was Tom CROOK. Don't know mother's name. I THINK they were originally from NC.
Callie SPURGEON LOVEDAY and husband Eli LOVEDAY. Both born 1861. Eli died
in 1917 and Callie in 1918 and I guess they died from the flu epidemic that
winter. They are buried in Sevier County, TN. Don't have months and dates
of births or deaths. Have names of some of their children:
Jessie James LOVEDAY,
Dalton LOVEDAY (buried Thomas Cem. Sevier County),
Dicie LOVEDAY (my paternal grandmother).
Can get other names, as there were 9 children in all.
Family of Andrew Johnson KELLY. Married Sarah Elizabeth BIRD, Dau. of Michael BIRD and Jane Reinhart (Sp.) BIRD. AJ and Sarah buried at Burchfield Cem. in Sevier County. Need his parent's names.

PYLES, PILES, PYLE:
Subj: Pyles Family Date: 98-02-06
From: email@example.com (Willard Pyles)
I really appreciate folks like you who work so hard and then share your work with others like me who are too lazy too busy. The Pyles family (alternate spellings: Piles, Pyle, etc.) showed up in Marshall County in the early 1880s.
Levi Pyles was my great, great, grandfather. He was killed by an unknown person and buried in an unmarked grave near Delina, TN. It seems that they may have come to TN from Orange County, North Carolina.
We have been unable at this point to make a direct connection between the N.C. family and the TN group.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. As you can tell, I am a novice in the area of genealogy.

subj: Shamrock far afield Date: 98-02-08
Since you mention being from Erin, I will .. send this on to you..
My father (Malcolm Robert Patterson) recenly died, leaving us a farm called "The Boone Farm" outside of Erin, TN.
My father was born in 1935 in Humphreys Co. (Waverly, later raised in McEwen, TN).
My gfather was Malcolm Rice Patterson b. around 1900 (known as Ham, later ran a quarry/rock crusher in McEwen and laid roads in Dickson & Humphreys Co and in Oak Ridge, TN), his brother was Strat Patterson (later of Waverly)
My ggfather was David Patterson (lumberjack/millsman) m. to Ollie Boone, lived in the log cabin in Houston County. I remember as a kid the log cabin and creek on the farm. We now have what's left of their cabin on the property outside Erin, TN
I have seen that there is a place south of Erin called Boone's Hollow and east of Erin called Patterson Hollow and there is a Patterson Branch creek nearby too.
We are trying to make the Patterson/Boone connection and to which Boone.
Anything you can add would be helpful.

From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Rodney Spears II)
I appreciate the work you are doing with genealogy. I am glad I happened upon you. I live in Ohio and therefore it is hard to research in another state without going there.
I am looking for information on James SPEARS, s. of Marian SPEARS and Alice GIBBS SPEARS.
James Spears, my grandfather lived in Montgomery County, Tn., in or around a place called Needmore, and Cumberland City. It is thought, however, that he was born, North in Kentucky. James died in l950.
He was mar. to Minnie Leah GRIZZARD SPEARS, with whom he had 12 children. James was said to have been half Indian. My dad says James was in his upper 70's when he died. That would have him being born, possibly in the mid or upper l870's. I went to the Montgomery Co. Courthouse, and learned that all the records had been sent to Nashville, and that there had been a fire and burnt down the old Montgomery Co. Courthouse.
I would be so happy for any help that you can give me.

Subj: Re: Brown/Stafford Family Date: 98-02-24
From: BROWN ETAL@aol.com
I was reviewing some old aol queries and ran on to your letter.... This is where I'm at at this time.
My name is Kenny Brown and I reside in Xenia, Ohio. Since 1985, I have been working on my familys genealogy and have been quite successful. However, I have stumbled at times, and this seems to be one of those times.
This letter is in regards to the Brown\Stafford family.
The individual I am seeking is named John C. Brown. He was born 18-October-1862 in Jackson County, Tennessee. He was the son of Josiah and Elizabeth Sarah (Goolsby) Brown and he had seven siblings:
James Madison Brown bn.1855 married to Altha Fox
Richard Alexander Brown bn. 1857 married to Emma Fox
Mary Frances Brown bn. 1860 married to Shields Byers
John C. Brown bn. 18-October-1862 married to Adeline Stafford on 21-June-1893
Willis Woodfork Brown bn. 8-March-1866 married to Charlotta Alexander
Martilia Brown bn. 1868 died 1871
Andrew Jackson Brown bn. 1872 and married Alabama Kansas McBroom
Sarah Elizabeth Brown bn. 1874 and married Herbert Lester Harley
The entire family, except for James and Willis, journeyed to Greenville, Missouri; Wayne County in 1893 to build a Baptist Church.
After the great flood in Missouri and the death of the majority of the family, they once again relocated. Most of the family, those who survived the flood and sickness, uprooted and moved to Weatherford,Texas Parker County.
In the "1900 Wayne County, Missouri Census" John and Adeline were reported as having three children; Mary in 1894, Henry, 1897 and Sarah, 1899. It is at this time that I lose track of John and his family.
If you have any information regarding this family, could you please send it to me. I have included my address and telephone number at the bottom of this letter. I will appreciate any information you can give me to help with my research.
Also, if you are interested, I have quite a bit of documented information on the Browns of Jackson and Putnam Counties and would gladly send it to you if you are interested...

They are my 4th great grandparents whom I didn't have info. about until this week. They branch from my CAPEL line. The problem is my cousin has books showing them to have been born and married in England. I am including excerpts from her e-mails showing this along with their info. as shown on your site. Is there any chance you could verify either version of this very important line of our ancestry? We would be extremely grateful if you could. If you wish, I will send you my ancestry line.

Rebecca Chandler's brother Josiah Chandler , married Sarah Eddins who was sister of William Eddins Sr. The couple are said to have married at the same time in England, and then migrated imediately to the New World. They eventually settled in Wilson Co. TN. around 1805. I know Tom Partlow had made a trip to England . He probably got his information from same papers that Malcolm Hooker did in Library in Nashville. Those attachments I sent tell of the papers and where they are and who wrote them.
I have a Book "Chandlers of Kansas" by Billy M. Jones.
Has Richard , became first Chandler to chart a course of Westward immigration. Some time after 1620 he sailed from essex England to America in employ of the Honorable Co. of Virginia he laid claims to land on border of VA. and MD , massacred by Indians 3/22/1622. 3 of 4 son s came over the following year, John, Thomas and Author on different ships to minimize the danger of shipwreck to reestablish claims to his property .

Subj: Query on the Henleys of Bedford Co, TN Date: 98-02-26
From: email@example.com (franh)
Would anyone have any ideas on how I could find the maiden name of my great grandmother? Here is the problem....
James B. Henley (Henly) born about 1854 in Bedford Co. TN married Susan B. on Nov. 6, 1875 in Bedford Co. TN. J. W. Harmon was the security.
I found a copy of their marriage record in the Allen County Library in Ft. Wayne, IN but Susan's last name was illegible so I immediately wrote to the county clerk in Bedford Co. for a copy of the original. Much to my disappointment, the clerk sent me a copy of the original with a note saying that the last name was illegible. Now I have no further ideas.
My great grandparents had at least two sons. One son was William Bert Henley who was born 26 Apr. 1876 in Shelbyville. Another son, Benjamin Henley, was born about 1878.
I would be happy to share other Henley data with others.
Thanks in advance.

HOUSDEN, HOUSEN, GUY, MAXWELL:
Subj: Genealogy questions Date: 98-02-27
I was wondering if perhaps I might take up a few moments of your time for some questions.
My ggg grandfather Benjamin Housden married 1814 in Rockingham County, VA. My gg grandfather James was born there in 1815. They are in the Williamson County Census 1820-1840. I believe that they moved sometime after 1840 to Henry County TN. According to the census Benjamin had, we believe, 9 boys. To date, we only have information and confirmation on one... my gg grandfather James. We are at a loss where the other 8 males went to.
I have corresponded with a man that lives and writes info on Genealogy in the Williamson County area, T. Vance Little. Much to my surprise, he had always wondered who Benjamin was. He owed some money to a Jabez Owen when he died. Corresponding with him, I gave him the info that Benjamin sold his land in the 1840's to a Wyatt Ellis. We believe that the historic Wyatt home, was Benjamin's. We have pretty much figured out the daughters, as they had married and stayed in Williamson County, but the males have dazed and confused us.
I found a article about a Sarah Housen (notice that the spelling is different) that was the widow of a Dan, who was hung in the hog gallows on her farm in 1873. Her son William C Housen and his wife Mrs. S.J. Housen were accused of her murder. Sarah was the step-daughter of a Sterling Guy.
I think they might be us, considering that
1). I have a marriage record of a William C Housden and a Sarah J. Maxwell 1867 Davidson County, TN - versus William C Housen and a Mrs. S.J. Housen 1873.
2.) Sarah Housen lived on the Nolensville Pike 9 miles from Nashville- versus Davidson County is in Nashville
3). The marriage record of my gg grandfather spells his name as Housen.
4) In 1873 Sarah was called a "aged lady" a Old lady, and gave the age of 60- versus the time frame for Benjamin's children.
5) Guy is a surname that we married into, both in Rockingham CO, VA and in Williamson County, TN.
So given these five factors, I believe that they are related to the Housden clan. Also, there is a family with the surname of Housen, from different parts of the U.S. that have no connection to the Housden clan, so this is very confusing.
I guess to make a long story short, I have to find some kind of record that states Benjamin's children. We have a copy of his will index from Henry County, TN in the 1850's. It just lists who bought what, and most are people that we know of, so that has not been too much help.
The LDS has NOTHING <to help me> on Williamson County. Mr. Little commented that Benjamin lived between two historical churches- The Liberty Methodist and the Concord Baptist Church. He bet that Benjamin went to the Methodist Church, as the Ellis family did, however, his grandson (my g granfather) was a very devout Baptist.
Would you know where to write (I live in Washington State), or how I can see if the church has any records from that time period. Or do you have any other suggestions to help aid in the research of his children???
Sorry --- I just looked and I think I wrote a book!!! Thank you for your time, it is much appreciated.
