LOL Marti....! Well, that is one good thing, but still dont give me all the answers. I found that one census, but nothing else. Dont tell me where exactly she was born... but at least it is one link closer.

Robin--I found Estel living with his sister Mollie Combs in 1900 census in Jack Co Texas---the age is right--then on Public family trees on ancestrycom I found Finest and Mollie listed as the children of Samuel H Walker b 1847 in Tenn and Rose Bostick b 1854 in Alabama, which matches the census info. This tree was posted by a Robin Inge. If you don't subscribe to ancestry, I can send her a message if you want.

I am researching the George and Perry families from Lincoln County, Tennessee. Particularly William George who married Nancy Perry. Would love to share information with others from this line.

I have hit a brick wall! Since last December, I have been looking for a Finest Estell Walker, b: 1 August 1880... somewhere in Tennessee (some documents sayt 1883, but death record says 1880). He married Carrie Calline Hamilton on 21 October 1900 in Jack Co, TX. I can't locate his parents at all, and the living family members dont know either. Very special project for my Mother-in-law...

This is true in several of my lines that have resided in the Overton, Pickett, and Fentress County area since around 1813. Then I have another line that came from Pennsylvania into the Fentress County around 1850-60, actually two lines that had inter married long before reaching Tennessee. Except for my father's paternal line which was from Georgia/South Carolina, my lines have been in that area of Tennessee for so long that I have retired to Tennessee in order to work on my genealogy.

In the early years, groups of families often traveled together from one area of the country to another. My Ewings, Cusicks and a number of other families traveled from VA to Sevier/Blount Co., TN in early 1800's. The families continued to lived in close proximity.

The census indexes proved helpful when searching for a particular individual. This was especially true when I hit a dead end. I would research a member of a neighboring family only to discover he/she married a member of the family I was originally researching.

I have the following Blount Co. books:
Blount County, Tennessee Marriages 1795-1865 by Will E. Parham
Blount County, Tennessee, Deeds Deed Book 1 1795-1819 Abstracted by
Mrs. Jane Kiser Thomas
History of Blount County, Tennessee From War Trail to Landing Strip
1795-1955 Revised ny Inez E. Burns
Blount County Tennesse Cemetery Records Including Blount Section of Loudon and Monroe Counties by Edith B. Little.
I would be willing do look up info.

I am looking for information in both east and west: Smiths in Scott County, Tennessee and Cushmans in Cheatham and Montgomery County. Both families were dirt poor and information dries up in the mid-1800s.

Betty, Thank you for the information on Williams.
