OVER THE EDITOR1S DESK
This issue of the Tennessee Genealogical Magazine, "Ansearchin'" News, comes to you
not only complete, but larger, and (we hope) on time. However, this was not accomplished without extra effort, and grief, on the part of our staff.
The entire staff expresses sympathy to the families of Floyd E. Culbreath and Charles
H. Massey who labored with our volunteer mail-out crew. Mr. Culbreath died 15 July
1982 and Mr. Massey died 24 July 1982. We are grateful for the time and effort they
gave to us and for the opportunity of working with two fine gentlemen.
Our former Managing Editor, benefactor, advisor and friend, Eleanor Barham, has moved
with her husband to Florida. Her enthusiasm and positive reactions have guided us
for a number of years, and we shall miss her sorely. Thank you, Eleanor, for all
your hours of reading film, proof-reading, battling post office regulations, confronting printers, moving offices and even receiving deliveries.
Our new Managing Editor is already hard at work. He is Bill Holstun, retired C.P.A.,
who is very capably handling our business, financial and legal affairs. His expertise
in these areas will surely benefit the whole organization.
And, speaking of the organization, every member within reach of Memphis will surely
want to attend the SOUTH CAROLINA SEMINAR, sponsored by the Tennessee Genealogical
Society, on October 9, 1982. The speaker will be Brent H. Holcomb, CALS, Editor of
The South Carolina Magazine of Ancestral Research, and author and compiler of many
South Carolina books. Meet us at the Executive Plaza Inn, 1471 East Brooks Rd, Memphis.
By the time you receive this issue, you may have already missed the CLEMENT REUNION,
which is planned for 26 Sept 1982 at Hollow Rock, TN. However, if you are connected
to the Clement family, you should write Katie McMurray, 4409 Paul Ave., Tampa, FL
33611 for information on future gatherings.
The Ozarks Genealogical Society has an interesting event coming up. Their second annual fall workshop - PATRIOT FOOTPRINTS, AMERICAN MILITARY RECORDS - will be held
October 30, 1982 at the Sheraton Inn, 3333 S. Glenstone, Springfield, MO. For further
information write Darlene Keith, P.O. Box 3494 GS, Springfield, MO 65808.

MARRIAGE AND DEATH NOTICES FROM ALABAMA NEWSPAPERS AND FAMILY RECORDS 1819-1890 compiled by
Helen S. Foley. 1981. Hard back. 200 pp. Full name index.
Press, P.O. Box 738, Easley, SC 29640. $22.50.
Order from Southern Historical
Mrs. Foley adds to her numerous other Alabama volumes on Barbour County a new book of marriage
and death notices from many different newspapers in the central and eastern section of Alabama.
These records cover from 1819 to 1890 with no series of newspapers being copied in its entirety.
Much valuable genealogical information is to be gleaned from this new book of source material.
Some of the papers from which this material is taken are: Montgomery Republican, Mobile Commercial Register, The Eufaula Democrat, The Spirit of the South, Independent Americau, Eufaula Express, The Bluff City Times, The Henry County Register, The Clayton Banner, Eufaula Tri-Weekly
News, The Clayton Courier, Eufaula Weekly Times and four more related Eufaula papers.
35,000 TENNESSEE MARRIAGE RECORDS AND BONDS 1783-1870 compiled by The Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas,
Jr. and Mrs. Ella Lee Sheffield.
Hard back-3 volume set. Full name index. Order from
Southern Historical Press, P.O. Box 738, Easley, SC 29640. $135.00 for the set.
This set of books should be considered a necessity for every genealogical library, particularly
for persons researching in the mid-America area. These marriage bonds are taken from the card
file at the Tennessee State Library and Archives in Nashville and, until their publication by
Southern Historical Press, have not been available elsewhere. Most of the counties in East &
Middle Tennessee are represented, and the dates cover'almost a century from pre-statehood days.
The books contain the date the marriage bond was issued, the name of the bride and groom, the
security and county in which bond was issued (which was generally the county of residence of
either the bride or groom, or both). These records provide many persons with a starting place
for their Tennessee family roots.

back. 245 pp. Full name index.
Baltimore, MD 21202. $20.00.
Order from Genealogical Pulblishing Co., Inc., 111 water St.,
The records in this work, dating from the founding of the county, are based on registers kept
by the/County Clerk. They are supplemented by some 1.250 recently discovered marriage bonds.
Arranged in several sections, some chronological, some alphabetical, the records give the
names of the bride and groom, the date of issue of the marriage bond or license, the date of
marriage, and sometimes the name of the person who stood surety to the bond. Some 6,000
marriages are found in this work, and the names of all persons mentioned appear in the index.
MARRIAGES OF WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TENNESSEE 1804-1850 compiled by Edythe Rucker Whitley.
Order from Genealogical Publishing Co., 111 Water St., Baltimore,
Since the existing record sources (bonds, licenses, and registers) do not individually contain
evidence of all the marriages authorized in Williamson County, Mrs. Whitley has combined the
several sources to obtain as nearly as possible a complete listing of early marriages. This
compilation contains abstracts of the records of approximately 6,000 marriages, giving the name
of the bride and groom, the date of the license or bond, and the names of bondsmen and witness.
Excepting grooms, who are listed in alphabetical order in the text, the index contains the name
of everyone mentioned in the entries - about 10,000 brides, bondsmen and witnesses. Williamson
included what later became all or part of Maury, Lawrence, Lewis, Marshall and Giles Counties.
FAMILY TIES, VOLUME I, BIBLE RECORDS, by Mrs. Polly C. Warren.
Order from Mrs. Theron Bratton, Route #1, Box 76 J, Oxford, MS 38655
Lafayette County, Mississippi was formed from the 1836 Chickasaw Cession. Its county seat is
Oxford, home of the University of Mississippi. Much of the early history of the northeast part
of the state may be found in the court records of this county. In addition to many Bible
Records, this publication contains some letters of the early settlers. These letters are a
part of the collection of the Skipworth Historical and Genealogical Society, Inc. The society
is to be complimented on its preservation of documents of historical value, and on its publication of material for all genealogists.

NATIONAL SOCIETY COLONIAL DAUGHTERS OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY, INC. LINEAGE BOOK 1979
back. 265 pp. Indexed by ancestor. Order from Delila Baird, National Chairman, 909 E.
Johnston st., Rotan, TX 79546. $20.00.
The National Society Colonial Daughters of the Seventeenth Century was organized in 1896 and is
not to be confused with the Colonial Dames of the XVII Century. This book was printed in a
limited edition (the ninth) and another will not be published for at least ten years. It is an
aid for researchers of early colonial ancestry. It lists more than 2,000 names of original and
supplemental ancestors of members of the society, including dates, services and places of residence 1607-1699. The documentation for the ancestors listed was carefully checked by the
Registrar General, and any errors found in earlier listings were deleted from the 1979 edition.
Also included are names of living descendant members with chapter affiliations.
MARRIAGES OF GRAINGER COUNTY, TENNESSEE 1796-1837 compiled by Edythe Rucker Whitley.
Order from Genealogical Publishing Co., III Water st., Baltimore,
Grainger was made out of Hawkins and Knox in the year Tennessee became a state, 1796. The
marriage records were recorded in a register for the first time by the WPA. This new book is
an adaptation of that register. As far as is known, no other compiled record of the marriages
was ever made, for the county clerk apparently did not record the returns of either bonds or
licenses. In the time that has elapsed since the register was made, many original bonds and
licenses have been lost. The WPA register is therefore the most complete record of Grainger
County marriages available. References are made to some 6,000 persons.
AMBROSE MAULDING, ANCESTORS, DESCENDANTS AND KINSFOLK by Paul Kornmeyer, Denzil R. Mauldin, Ruth
Mauldin Adams and Flossie Gibbs Anderson (Rev. 1975-79). 1982.
Order from Denzil R. Mauldin, Valdez, AK 99686. $30.00.
This book covers the known ancestors and descendants of Ambrose Mauldin (1755-1833) and some of
his Mauldin kinsmen.
Ambrose's grandfather, Captain Richard Mauldin, was a native of England
and a King's soldier of that country. Richard came to Caroline County, Virginia and took up
land in 1732. He married Kathy Tyler, a relative of President Tyler. Their son, James, had
sons Morton, Wesley, Richard and Ambrose, and several daughters. James moved with his family
to North Carolina and later Tennessee. James, Ambrose and Morton were among settlers who formed the first government around Nashville and Logan County, Kentucky. Ambrose moved to Hamilton
County, Illinois in 1815. The Mau1dings were a strong and prolific pioneer family.
MARRIAGE, DEATH AND LEGAL NOTICES FROM EARLY ALABAMA NEWSPAPERS, 1818-1893 compiled by Pauline
Jones Gandrud. 1981. Hard back. 618 pp. Full name index.
Press, P.O. Box 738, Easley, SC 29640. $40.00.
Order from Southern Historical
These newspaper notices are taken from the various volumes of the late Mrs. Gandrud's 245 volume series on Alabama. They have been in the process of being compiled and edited for over two
years and are making a very significant contribution to Alabama research. Newspapers from many
different periods of history are included. The papers from which notices were taken are the
Huntsville papers, Limestone County newspapers, Northport, Tuscaloosa, Demopolis, Selma, Montgomery and other "Black Belt" county papers.
NEFF-WJREN, THE STORY OF OUR FAMILIES compiled by The Rev. Dr. Robert Owen Neff, Jr. 1980. Hard
back. 315 pp. Indexed. Order from the author, 2018 Ransom Dr., Murfreesboro, TN 37130. $25.00.
The author blames curiosity alone for his genealogical research. Starting with the Merck1e
line, his early German ancestors, the author follows them to Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and
Florida. Some of these families are: Heyd/Hite, Chrisman, Stephens, Haney, Barrier, Collins.
Mrs. (Wiren) Neff immigrated to America as a youth and her Swedish family is also presented
with numerous 'dotter' and 'son' surnames which changed with each new generation. A unique feature seldom seen in family genealogies is the ancestor charts of the different blood lines with
the families' German, French, English, Scotch-Irish, Swiss, Jewish, Swedish and Aland ancestory.
This is a beautifully written tribute to the ancestors of the Rev. Neff's children.

MARRIAGES OF JEFFERSON COUNTY, TENNESSEE 1792-1836 compiled by Edythe Rucker Whitley.
Hard back. 110 pp. Full name index.
St., Baltimore, MD 21202. $15.00.
Order from Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 111 Water
The original Jefferson County marriage records are no longer extant. This work is based on a
marriage register which was prepared by the WPA from records which have since disappeared from
the county courthouse. Jefferson, made from portions of Hawkins and Greene, included what
later became all or part of Hamblen, Cocke and Sevier Counties. About 6,000 brides and grooms
are named in this book which is indispensable for research in Jefferson County.
THE U.S. CENSUS OF 1840 BOUNT COUNTY, TENNESSEE transcribed from the original by David Templin
and Cherel Bolin Henderson. 1981. Soft back. 131 pp. Fully indexed. Order from Smoky Mountain Historical Society, c/o Templin, Rt. 8, Peppermint Rd., Maryville, TN 37801. $10.00.
The transcribers have made an earnest effort to ensure an accurate transcription, but the enumerator, Andrew Cowan, had his own peculiar style of writing which was often difficult to decipher. His very small writing was a major source of difficulty. In most cases, the correct
spelling was obvious, but in others where the letters were interchangable or the name was more
unusual, it was impossible to decide. In these instances the names were checked against other
records such as marriage and deed records. Using these records as a guide, the final determination was made. For these reasons the compilers urge you to check all possible variations of
any surname for which you are searching.
PIONEER COLLECTIONS OF SOLANO COUNTY compiled by Mary Higham.
from compiler, 5272 Williams Rd., Suisun, CA
This first genealogical material to come out of Solano County focuses on the Gold Rush era of
1848, a fascinating part of the history of California. The compiler abstracted biographies from
the out-of-print History of Solano County, 1879. Also included are surname indexes to biographies found in histories of El Dorado, Sacramento, Tuolumne, Amador, Colusa, Yolo & Napa Counties, and twelve townships. This book contains maps, census abstracts and much valuable source
material, along with the unique history of Solano County, told in the l870s writing style.

Order from Mr. Douthat, 2504 Kell Rd., Signal Mtn., TN 37377. $6.00.
The area of Tennessee now called Jefferson County was originally part of North Carolina. Early
settlers arrived as early as 1783 and included men like Alexander Outlaw, Robert McFarland,
James Hill, Joseph Copeland, James Hubbard, and Robert Gentry. Later settlers were Nirtian Chamberlain, Thomas Snoddy, and Adam Peck. One settler, Adam Meek, lived in such a remote area
that it was necessary for him to travel forty miles to a mill. The land grants given by the
Governor of North Carolina were originally called public lands and were for 640 acres.

to read. Katharine Obear was a teacher and church organist. born in Vermont but came to South

This bibliography of currently available Georgia materials is presented in hope that it will
facilitate research into the state's family and local history by pointing the way toward availab1.e, but often elusive. resources. especially for those researchers who are conducting their
search from afar. Adams found while attempting to study the histories of her own families.
she became aware of the difficulties in obtaining information about published materials. which
often provide valuable clues and background information. Few are widely advertised and some
not at all. Consequently many researchers remain unaware of books. maps. microfilm and periodicals which are useful. She began collecting information about such sources and presents it to
you in the hope the listing will prove helpful.

Welsh settlers were Baptist. Later as Ulster Scots arrived the Presbyterian Church was influential. During the Revolution Francis Marion. "the Swamp Fox". staged his attacks on the British

roll of those who served in the war on the Patriot side.

The Southern Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine, published between 1900 and 1952, is
from the vantage point of 1981, an article of history itself. Minute biographical and genealogical research fills much of the older volumes. In addition, the Society's own volumes of the
Magazine, and other materials that have been used by serious scholars, are caches of pencilled
corrections, addenda and notes. The staff of the Society realized that the notes appended to
a number of articles represented almost as much information as the printed articles themselves.
And so, they attempted to gather together this material and index it for you, the reader.
HAMILTON COUNTY by James W. Livingood, Joy Bailey Dunn, Editor and Charles W. Crawford, Associate Editor. 1981.
Press, Memphis, TN
Hard back. Over 133 pp.
Order from Memphis State University
Hami1toL County, Tennessee is located on the Tennessee River and is a part of the TennesseeGeor~ia border.
Historically the county is on the trade route of the Cherokee Indians and it
was the early gateway of the settlers through the southern Appalachian Mountains from Georgia
to Tennessee before and during the Revolutionary War. The county was formed in 1819 but it
continued to be important to the Cherokees up to their removal in the 1830's. The author has
presented the story of this historical county in a dramatic and highly interesting way with
many photos of noteworthy buildings and places included.

that area from the Davidson County line to Highway 109. The people who have scurried through
cemeteries and untangled themselves from honeysuckle vines and sawbriers have all had one purpose; to record the information about the residents of the section before it was destroyed by
time, weather, vandals, and Progress. The annotations in this record are supplied from family
records, from personal memory of funerals, and from newspaper obituaries in the hands of the
WHO'S WHO IN GENEALOGY AND HERALDRY, VOL. I by Mary Keysor Meyer and P. William Filby, Editors.
1981. Hard back.
Order from Gale Research Co., Book Tower, Detriot, MI
This publication gives a resume of those genealogists the editors feel are of importance in
their field and who are engaged in professional genealogical research. The book was designed
to meet the needs of genealogists, genealogical societies, publishers, editors, and librarians.
It should be of help to those who need the services of a professional researcher, a lecturer
for a seminar, an editor, a consultant or a book reviewer. The book, no doubt, will find many
uses. Naturally the people included were selected according to their contribution, achievement
and public interest in the field of genealogy.

Removal of the capital of Georgia four times, the Civil War, fire, theft, damage by water, neglect, mice and squirrels have left us with a scarcity of early records. The wills abstracted
in this publication once spent nearly twenty years in "The Tower of London" going by way of the
Bahamas and Scotland, being carried off by a British officer in whose charge they were on the
evacuation of Savannah by the British forces. They contain not only pertinent genealogical
information but reflect the social customs and economic trends of the day. This volume presents Colonial Will Books A and AA and over 300 loose wills in the Department of Archives,
and 5 wills in the University of Georgia Libraries, Special Collections in Athens. Book B of
Colonial Wills has never been found.

Order from compiler, 243 Argonne Dr., Durham, NC
Haun's index is always a delight; the surnames appear in large print and really stand out on
the printed page. The same goes for the individual minutes, but she cautions the reader to
check the entire page to which the index refers as a name often appears more than once. These
minutes continue in sequence from Book IV.

These miscellaneous records were transcribed from the Albemarle County Papers Vol. 1-3 in the
North Carolina State Archives. Included are mortgage deeds, letters of administration, land
tax records, claims, lists of tithab1es, etc. This is a blessing for the A1bermar1e County researcher as the ancient records offer difficult to read handwriting and brittle, torn paper.
An interesting series in the index is Personal Possessions & Necessities of Colonial Life.

This volume contains abstracts of marriage and death notices from extant newspapers of York (or
Yorkville), South Carolina. The issues of the 1820's - 1840's do have large gaps, but happily,
the Yorkville Enquirer presents a complete file of newspapers for the period of the Civil War.
Few newspapers could publish during this period for lack of available paper, and many which
did publish have not survived. In addition to the soldiers' obituaries, those of the elderly
who died during the war are important. Often, money was scarce during and after the war, and
tombstones were never erected for many of the people for whom we have obituaries here.

Order from Southern Historical
The author traces the Hampton family and their allied Harrison and Earle families 15 generations through 300 years of American history. The history begins with William Hampton, the immigrant, who came to Jamestown in 1620 and ends in South Carolina with the death of General Wade
Hampton III in 1902. Part II of the book lists all known descendants of William Hampton to
1980 with a short biographical sketch of each head of family. This family history is well documented and includes maps, pictures and charts and is a refreshing genealogy.

This volume consists of marriage and death notices from the three Baptist newspapers which were
published in South Carolina before and during the Civil War era; The Southern Baptist and
General Inte11igencer (later The Southern Watchman and General Inte11igencer) 1835-1837; The
Southern Baptist, 1847-1860; The Confederate Baptist, 1862-1865. The first two were published
in Charleston and the last in Columbia. The notices themselves pertain mainly to South Carolinians or persons with strong connections there. Of much interest are notices of persons who
removed to other states, particularly Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana.

WILLIAM F. MOORE - PEYTON ENGLISH MOORE
Contributed by James T. Goodbread, Rt. 1,
Cleveland, OK, 74020
This old family Bible, owned in 1971 by Mrs. Lassie Moore Goodbread Black of Columbia
County, FL., is the basis of research on this particular Moore family.
William F. MOORE was born 1805/10 according to the 1840 Hardeman Co., TN census or
in North Carolina according to other records. He died Aug 1844 in Hardeman Co., TN.
His wife, Mahala B. ENGLISH, was born in 1817 in Tennessee according to the 1850 cen~
sus, but her son said she was born in Ireland. Their children, all born in Hardeman
Co., TN, were:
1. Elizabeth Moore - born 28 Mar 1837; married
JOBE and had at least one
child, William Thomas Jobe - born 10 May 1859
2. William Thomas Moore - born 2 Jun 1838
3. Martha V. Moore - born 1840
4. Andrew Jackson Moore - born 9 Jan 1842
5. Peyton English Moore - born 16 May 1844; died 29 Dec 1904 in Pocahontas, TN
When Peyton English Moore was three months old his father died and his mother married
a second time. Peyton was then adopted and reared by William A. McDONALD and his
wife, Frances Caroline DAVIS. In a pension application filed 12 Mar 1904, Peyton
said he was a resident of Essary Springs in Hardeman Co., TN. He gave his birth as
16 May 1844 in Hardeman Co., TN. On 16 Apr 1861 he enlisted in the 4th Tennessee
Infantry under Col. R.P. NEELY, Capt. James FENTRESS and was transferred to the 9th
Regiment under Col. DOUGLASS and Capt. J.M. PARK in Oct 1861. Later he was assigned
to Capt. YOPP's Company of Cavalry, Brig. J.J. Neely in command, where he received
multiple wounds at the Battle of McDonald's Farm. He was captured and imprisoned for
several months in St. Louis, Cincinnati and Baltimore, and was exchanged at City
Point, VA to be returned to his command. He served to the end of the Civil War, surrendering at Meridian with the General Army. His pension was accompanied by a paper
from his attorney, H.E. CARTER, with Fred MILLS and J.J. Neely certifying to his
On 17 Apr 1871 in Pocahontas, TN., Peyton English Moore was married to Edith Davis,

GENESIS OF AN ALLEN - Contributed by Mrs. Myrtle Lauder Zahn, P.O. Box 745
Winnie, Texas 77665
Knowing her ancestor, Thomas ALLEN, died in Moniteau Co., MO in 1845, the compiler
began her search in Cole Co., MO Court House, where she found the marriage record
of Iraneous R. NEACE to Lucinda Louisa Allen. Then in Moniteau County, in a box
dusty with age, the Clerk allowed her to search through stacks of old documents
filed chronologically for a hundred years. The Thomas Allen bundle disclosed a
will, estate settlement, and signatures of all his children and their spouses. The
1850 Census of Tarrant and Denton Counties, Texas established the fact that some of
the children had been born in Tennessee.
Thomas Allen had willed his wife, Permelia (LINDSAY) his slaves, Ambrose and Caroline, which proved an important clue, along with the NSDAR record #473,777 of
Richard Allen, Sr. of Wilkes Co., NC. A copy of the latter's will named all the
Family Gatherings (continued)
children and slaves, Ambrose and Caroline. Shortly before his death Richard Allen,
Sr. had applied for a government pension, but died before receiving anything. His
son, Richard Allen, Jr. had to submit a witnessed statement to the government about
the death, names of aJ1 the surviving children and places of residence of each at
that time - 1832. There was Thomas Allen listed as living in Bedford Co., TN. This
pension application (#6490) gave many working clues, one being that Richard was born
in Baltimore Co., MD. Richard Sr. and Nancy named their eldest son John, probably
for Richard's father because Thomas was named for Nancy's father, Thomas Lindsay,
who died in Frederick Co., VA in 1769. Richard and Nancy moved to NC by 1770.
A Professional genealogist had stated that Richard Allen was the son of John Allen,
who married Ann RHODES/RHOADS on 24 Nov 1740 in St. John's Parish MD. Ann was born
in that Parish 22 Apr 1722, daughter of Richard and Mary Magdalen Rhodes.
The widow, Perme1ia (Lindsay) Allen, with her children and their spouses, and Ambrose and Caroline, came by wagon train, led by Hall MEDLIN, to Texas. Much of her
family is listed in the book, "The Peters Colony of Texas" with their land grants
and certificate numbers. They settled on both sides of Tarrant and Denton County
lines near Roanoke, Deller, Justin, Elizabethtown, and Grapevine.
Iraneous R. Neace and wife homesteaded 640 acres of land; they deeded one acre for
a cemetery and Mt. Gilead Baptist Church, which was established in 1850. Ambrose
and Caroline were also charter members of this church. Most of Perme1ia Lindsay
Allen's family were members of Lonesome Dove Baptist Church in Denton Co., TX befor~
Mt. Gilead was organized. In February 1846 "Milly" Allen, Caroline amd Ambrose
were on that church roll. Many descendants of this hardy stock now live in all
parts of Texas.
The compiler's great~st thrill of research came through the help of the Boy Scouts
of American and Mr. R. Ivey MOORE, genealogist and historian for Wilkes Co., NC.
The Scouts cleared and cleaned the family burial site of Richard Allen, Sr. in Edwards Twp., near Roaring River about ten miles east of N. Wilkesboro, NC in preparation for the Bi-Centennia1 celebration. NC Highway Marker #288 between Roaring
River and Ronda reads as follows: "Richard Allen, Sr. Colonel of NC Militia at
Battle of King's Mountain. Delegate to the Hillsborough Convention, 1788; in General Assembly, 1793. Grave 4 mi. N." His descendants include names of WALSH,
BAUGUS, BARCROFT, FRESHOUR, NEACE, HAMPTON, TRIMBLE, LAUDER, MEDLIN, DUNHAM, FOSTER,
KIMBROUGH, LINDSAY, and many others.
A family record compiled by Thomas Allen Neace about 1900 noted that Perme1ia's
uncle "Old Silver Fist" Major John Lindsay fought in the Revolutionary War. His
Georgia records show he was the son of John Lindsay (which was proved by his Bible
record), and this elder John Lindsay would be the grandfather of Perme1ia. This
record also noted that her uncle, Daniel SISK, was killed at the Battle of King's
Mountain, but that was not confirmed by the Nease record. The compiler knows that
Major John Allen had a brother, Benjamin, in South Carolina.

BIBLE OF MARTHA L (SPEAR) GROOMS -
Contributed by Mrs. Bettye G. Burgess
2720 Sandy Lane, Ft. Worth TX, 76112
This Bible, owned in 1976 by W.E. Cuffman of Denton, TX, is very old and fragile
with dim handwriting that is hard to read including some erasures.
Jordan (Jurden) P. GROOMS of Weakley Co., TN is not listed in the Bible, but he
married Martha L. SPEAR on 19 Jan 1863. He was a Mason, and he and his wife were
active in the Meridian Cumberland Presbyterian Church. They are both buried in
that church's cemetery. Martha L. Spear, who was the daughter of Willis and Sarah
Le Spear, died on 1 Oct 1902. Tradition says that Jordan P. Grooms was the son of
Major Groom and wife, Mary (Polly) POPE. This Major (Sr.) Groom was the son of
Stephen Groom and wife, Winnifred WINDERS. Stephen Groom served in the War of 1812,
fighting in Georgia where he is believed to have been born. He was probably
married in Kentucky.
Wilson KELLY married Mary E. Spear 15 Jan 1860.

There is a Bill of Complaint in Weakley Co., TN dated 22 Sep 1903 made by C. C.
Grooms, Bettie CARLTON and husband, T.H. Carlton, citizens of Weakley Co., TN
against J.P. Groom's Heirs (he died in 1888 and wife died 19 Oct 1902). The heirs
are: W.J. Grooms, residence unknown; Fannie WAGSTER and husband, D.W. Wagster of
Missouri; Mattie CUFFMAN and husband, R.Coffman of Texas; B.R. Grooms of Missouri;
Kate Grooms; C.C. Alexander Grooms; Lena DOLAN and husband, Bob Dolan; Birdie
WOMBLE and husband, Bob Womble; and Minnie Grooms, all citizens of Weakley Co., TN.
They charge that since these lands cannot be advantageously partitioned and are
only suitable for farming purposes, that the land should be sold. The nearest
towns to the farm are Dresden and Greenfield, Tennessee.

Subscribers may request information from this file by writing to the Tennessee Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 12124, Memphis, TN 38112. They will receive information
from four (4) surname cards and namE'S & addresses of those working on the same surname. Please send a SELF-ADDRESSED, STAMPED ENVELOPE, and limit requests to one each
three (3) weeks as this has proved to be a popular service and an effort is being
made to expedite your replies.
WE DO NOT DO FAMILY RESEARCH.
ONLY MEMBERS AND SUBSCRIBERS MAY USE THIS SERVICE.
You can help mc.ke this file more effective by sending us a 3x5 inch file card (no
other size will fit our files!) for EACH member of your family tree to be added to
this Master Index. Cards should be typed or printed very plainly.
Please give the data listed on the sample card below in preparing your cards. Children should be listed on the back. Each card should contain at least one date and
one place, even if they are estimated or guessed. This will enable us to determine
that a person who lived in one area in the 17th century is a different person from
one (with the same name) who lived in another area in the 19th century. Please keep
your address current with the Surname Index secretary; the index is revised every
five years and if you have not written in that time, your surname cards are transferred to another file for use in the genealogical library.
