I just joined the genealogy wise and all because of the James Shoemaker born in 1750 in Russell County, Va. He was my 4x great grandfather on my dads side. Have quite a bit of info on his kids and their kids down the line but nothing on his parents and only speculation about his wife. My line cames James-Alexander-Leonard-George Washington-Mima Jeanett. Any help you or anyone else could give would be much appreciated. Am willing to share what I have. Hoping to hear from you soon, Susan
I am looking for William Henry Allen who died in the CW, was married possibly to Frances Sarah Murrell, dau of John Murrell and Temperance Frances Denton Click Murrell. His daughter was born Dec 25, 1863 in Tennessee, probably Cocke Co, and died in 1927 in home of daughter Rosie, Park Springs, Wise Co, Texas.
Reason I state Possibly Married, is I cannot find a marriage cert. Frances Sarah was born 17 Nov 1847 in Cocke Co, Tennessee. I do believe they were married as Lena's maiden name is on her tombstone. Frances Sarah married secondly probably also Cocke Co, TN to William Click, who died 1869 Cocke Co, TN. She sometime removed to Giles Co, TN with her Murrell Family after that time, but I cannot find her in the 1870 census, she is not with her parents in the Giles Co, census. She could be listed as Frances or Sarah.
In 1874 in Giles Co, she marries with the given name as Sarah Click to Samuel Clevenger and then afterwards sometime, went to Cooke Co, TX where they lived in Gainesville till their deaths. They are buried in Burkburnett Cem, Wichita Co, TX.
I have found all the children's TX death certificates, but not Lena's. I have a picture stating Grandma Clevenger and my sisters, which bears out in research.
I would be very interested in any ALLEN, CLICK, MURRELL connections in your book.
my gg-grandfather was Oliver Clifford Waggoner, b. Maryland 1833, died Kentucky 1902. His siblings were Susanna, George Washington, Sarah and Mary. Their parents were Elza Waggoner and Mary (possibly Elbin). Oliver and George had many children who spread out all over Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana, etc. Family lore says Elza's father was a Hessian soldier. Sound familiar?
Hi Kate! It's great to find you here. I wrote a short piece for the World Vital Records Newsletter that came out yesterday and referred to YOU! Not by name, but I talked about finding a 2nd cousin and the blessings that come from making these connections and all that we can share by working together! This is so fun!
