I am interested in the following names; Nunley, Helton, Parsons, McCoy, Vaughn, Wilemon, Farris, Carpenter, Allen, Patterson, Cash.
I am mostly interested in the United States, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia.
I have been doing research for around 25 years or more.
I have a huge love of American history and History of the British Isles and Irelandl
So learning about your own history is a fascinating journey.

Hi Judy, I have been researching the Nunley's, Heltons, Parsons, McCoys, Wilemons, from Tishomingo, Co. Ms. for many years. I use a lot as well as trips to court houses, libraries. The Nunley's are a big puzzle of ancestors to try to figure out. I feel like Sherlock Holmes always trying to unscramble who is with who. I have quite a bit on these families and I am related to these names. I would be happy to share what I have. I have had the DNA test done. Interesting results with that. Looking forward to sharing information with those that maybe also may have found information that will help me.

Hi Judy, and thanks for the quick response.


Where do I begin?  I was born in 1947 in Sheffield, Colbert County, Alabama.  I have been in California the vast majority of my life, however.  If you can find it, I have a public tree on titled "Helton Family Tree (JD)" and you are welcome to have a look at it.  I am only certain that the data there is fairly accurate back about three or four generations.


Where I am currently stuck is finding the parents of my great grandfather William Henry Helton. He was bron in Alabama 16 Dec 1868, and died 01 Nov 1938 I believe in Colbert Coounty.  On I found some death information that stated his father was "Wash Helton" and listed his mother as "Allen".  Another researcher told me two things:  1) that the Helton's of Colbert County were in the Daniel Irvin Helton line and 2) that I should investigate the possibiity that my great grandfather's father was Miles Washington Helton out of TN.  No luck there so far.


Other possible leads in this search are Hiney Helton (Born about 1851 in Alabama, Died 1900 in Bastrop, Texas), and Henry Clay Helton (Born 1847 in Alabama, Died 1898 in Texas).


I am awaiting results of a DNA test which may help, but am going crazy in the meanwhile and constantly running into dead ends. 


Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Judy,
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I have sent endless messages to members of other websites and it seems none of them visit the sites anymore. As a matter of fact, I do know where Maskle & Dewey are burried. I have a photo of the headstone, and my grandfather is supposed to send me photos of Mr. & Mrs. Wilson. If you would like, I can e-mail the photo to you. I don't believe I have very much information on the Parsons but anything I do have, you are more than welcome to have it. I have only been researching my family for a short time, but since the recent passing of my grandmother Carolyn S. (Holt) Wilson, I found old documents in her belongings that have helped alot.

If there is anything I can do to help you, I would be more than willing to take photos at cemeteries, find death records, etc. Once again, thank you for getting back to me so quickly. Good luck with your research.

-Joshua Wilson

Hi Judy,
I am also interested in the Nunley family. My line comes from Prince Edward/Prince George County Virginia and then into KY and Ohio. How are you related?

Hello Judy -- I read one of your posts about having ancestors in the Grenville-Leeds area of Ontario. Just wondering if any of your ancestors connected with any Lee, Clow or Palmer lines. My ancestors ended up in the Leeds area about 1801 and after the third generation part of them headed to Minnesota about 1850. Looking forward to a reply. Have a great day! Sandra Johnson.

Maskle Wilson and Dewey Helton were my dad's parents. I can get more info for you.

Judy _ I *think* if you look to the right under your name it says "friends". Try that and see if you can confirm there. :)

My line from John William Helton goes like this:

John William Helton m. Rosa Inez them was born my Grandmother, Rosa Edith Helton m. Willie Dee Smith. To Edith & W.D. was born my Mother, Mary Edith (Edie) Smith. :) My birthfather was Frederick V. Brown but I was adopted and my father is Andrew P. Connelly. My husband, Trevor and I have 8 children...some birthed, one adopted from foster care and two were given to us by a stranger in a Wendy's parking lot. Talk about a DIVERSE branch of the Helton tree...we are definately it! ;)

I think sometimes they are working on the site and messages do not go through. Please try again. I am trying to work on this line again, and need all the help I can get!

Hello Judy,
Thank you for doing a search for Ethalinda (unknown) Pigg.

I initiated a PIGG group. Would you please post this information there.

I have a question. I have information that John and Ethalinda were in Warren, not Hardin County, Tennessee in 1850. I am concerned about this.
Your search for Ethalinda yielded:
1850 Census District 9 Hardin Co., TN Page 9
Dwelling No. 58
Family No. 58
John Pigg 21 abt. 1829 Male TN
Ethalinda Pigg 21 abt. 1829 Female TN
Mary S. E. Pigg 4 abt. 1846 Female AL
Larena Pigg 7 abt. 1843 Female AL

1860 Township 20 Range 13, Pemiscot Co., MO Page 3
Dwelling No. 421
Family No. 416
John Pigg 30 abt. 1830 Male TN
Etha Pigg 28 abt. 1832 Female TN
Slirena Pigg 10 abt. 1850 Female AL
William Pigg 8 abt. 1852 Male IL
James Pigg 2 abt. 1858 MO

The people above are the ones I am researching. Can you recheck to see which county please?

thank you.

The Helton line that connected with my Graham line was in Monroe Co., AL.

The Claiborn Pigg I am looking for was born c 1790s, NC. This other Claiborn is too old, but interesting.
Thanks so much for your help.

Thank you. The 1850 census in Warren TN, John and Ethalinda, and the 1860 census Pemiscott, I have. I was really hoping there was something I had missed in Warren Co., TN on these people.

Judy -
I saw your comment that you could do a look-up in Warren Co., Tennessee. Could you please look in your sources for John Pigg, born 1823-1827, TN. He was living in McMinnville in the 1850 census with wife Ethalinda, and two daughters, Mary and Sirena. I cannot find his wife's maiden name. I am unsure of his parents, said to be Claiborn Pigg and Lucinda Womack. Anything you can find is OK. I have found some of the tax lists. John Pigg never filled out any papers the same way, or he simply did not complete them. This seems to be my direct line of descent.
You can leave me a message at my page.
Thank you,

I've got Mariam Graham married to William Helton in Monroe County Al in 1870 with the following children:

Benjamin, Elizabeth, Callie, Texanna, Comfort, Eugenia, Lorena

Her parents were Joseph and Comfort Graham and her brother is my direct ancestor. The Graham line is mine, the Helton is a collateral line.

Does your Helton family come from Monroe County Al. and have a Graham connection. I've got a Graham there that married a Helton.
