  I have a Childers brick wall that I can't seem to climb over!  Nancy Frances JESSICA Childers born 29 Jan 1869 in Shelby Co, I think Tennessee.... the line between Mississippi/ Tennessee  was changed and it went through the Childer property...  Her parents were Levi Childers and Belle Sanders , married about 1867/68.  Sibling named Eugene A. Childers born 1873.  Levi and Belle may also have siblings who married each other...they were slave owners though I have been told that many of the individuals who were on their place did not leave but stayed there after the civil war.  I am looking for information on both Belle and Levi.  Belle may have been part Native Amreican and from North Carolina and there' several Levi Childers in the same area.  One line of Childer's are Part Native American and Associated with the Vann Family.  I don't believe that is this particular Childers family..  EIther Belle or Levi died in early 1900's as Jessica or her husband had to travel to "take care of things due to the death"  Jessica was married to Daniel James Hallman in Arkansas about 1876.  Faulkner Co.   If you are a Childers linked to the Native American line I may be able to share some information I've gathered during my search.

I was attempting to join the Kimberling surname and saw the Childers name so clicked on it to see what information was available. I have 2 entries in my Kimberling line that associate with the Childers name. Wondering if you are able to help me. Have very little on B(M)elinda Kimberling, b. 1820. Married John Childers July 11, 1844 in Mason Co., WV. He was born 1822 in VA, son of William Childers and Jane Higginbotham. Twleve possible children but on a Higginbotham chart is had listed 5 children.

My other Childers was Lucinda, daughter of John and Nancy. Lucinda was born 1826 in Potts Creek, VA. Know for sure she had a child by William Richard Kimberling. Frances Jane was born 8-25-1844. Lucinda then married Reuben Hart. Some of the family is buried in Metier Cemetery, LeRoy, IA.

Any help? Joyce Kimberling Kuhnle

I can only say I don't think so....I don't know for sure either way, but tend to lean to no.

Hi, Is your Childers the same as Childress Name?

Welcome! Marty and Joyce. I'm sorry I haven't extended this welcome sooner. I recently started back to school and unfortunately have had to put my genealogy on hold for a bit. Please post your family lines in a new discussion thread so we and others might make connections.
