George EVERHART was born in Hawkins CO, TN, January 12, 1848. He married Rebecca M. GRUBB who was born in TN June 01, 1851. They had 3 children. David Walter EVERHART was born June 10, 1875. My Grandmother, Catherine Elizabeth EVERHART was born August 27, 1877. I was told they had a brother, Jeff, who died when he was about 12 years of age. By his siblings birth dates, I assume the only census Jeff would have been in was the lost 1890 one. How do I find his birth and death date and where he was buried? Perhaps some information on why he died. Thank you.

I would like information on James WEST who was born in Hawkins CO, TN on Sept. 16, 1836 and died in Hamblen CO, Aug. 19, 1923. He was hit by a train near Bull's Gap.

I would also like to know if anyone can help with Sarah's death date, burial place, family members, etc. James served in the 1st TN Cav. under Brownlow. Sarah's nickname was Sallie.
