Yes, I have specifics on some of them. Castle Garden sounds unlikely, but Serious Queries and Naturalizations sound like they'd be of interest.

My direct ancestor was Orval B. Frazier(listed as Orvilla on the census) he was my great grandfather beleive his father was Waitman born 1810 Hawkins Co. TN. I am having alot of problems tracing this line. Seems to be a brick wall for me. Thanks for any help you can offer.
