Ancestor Name(s) Brightberry Gentry
Date(s) and Location(s) 1784 Madison County, Kentucky
My great-grandparents were James Harvey Summers & Sarah Margaret West. She was a daughter of Richard West & Minerva Hisel. Richard West was the son of John West and Margaret Peggy Gentry. Margaret Peggy Gentry was the daughter of Brightberry Gentry. He was the son of David Gentry IV. His mother was either Jane Kendrick or Jane Haggard.
Does that qualify me for the descendants of your family? If so, I am seeking help in learning the mother of Brightberry. He was born in 1784. Some information shows his mother to be Jane Kendrick, and she died that same year. Some information shows his mother as Jane Haggard, but she did not marry David Gentry IV until 1785. Do you have any information?

Ancestor Name(s) James Alexander
Date(s) and Location(s) Charlotte County, VA (1840s)
I have another marriage to add to your list: James W. Alexander who married Jane B. Nash, dau. of James Nash and Jean Virginia Pugh of Charlotte County, VA. The marriage bond was signed on December 7, 1843. Witnesses were Thomas D. Moore and Mary Nash, sister of the bride. Abner Nash, brother of the bride provided surety. James Nash, father of the bride gave his consent (James Alexander signs his name as just "James Alexander"). They were married the next day on December 8, 1843. In the Charlotte County marriage register James's name is given as J.W. Alexander. I can find James Alexander in the personal property tax rolls from 1842 to 1844. Then he disappears. The couple's only child, a daughter, Lavelette, was born on October 12, 1845 in Charlotte County, VA. The only other Alexander shown in Charlotte County at the time was Dr. Archibald D. Alexander who shows up long before 1842 and long after 1844. He never shows that he has a "white male over the age of 16" living in his household so I don't believe Dr. Archibald had a son that could be my James. I can find one other James Alexander associated with Charlotte County. He was a Reverend J. W. Alexander in Charlotte county (1820s) but I believe he is James Waddel Alexander who married Elizabeth Cabell in 1830 in Charlotte County, VA. Everything I have seen says that Elizabeth out lived her husband and she died in 1885. Reverend James Waddel Alexander was the 1st cousin once removed of Dr. Archibald D. Alexander. I don't believe this James is my man. I am desperate for clues. Any hints or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Ancestor Name(s) Henderson Slatton (Slaton) Zachary
Date(s) and Location(s) 1870's - 1920's
Julia E. Henderson is the subject of my query. I am not related to her but my wife is her great-granddaughter. Julia's first name may be Juliet. I have seen this but better evidence is for "Julia." Julia's E. 's middle name may be Elma.
Julia married Thomas Henderson in NC. He was born in Lake Toxaway, NC. Julia and Thomas had a son, William Clifford Henderson, husband of Rella Mae Williams; these are my wife's grandparents.

Much of our information comes from courthouse records in Sylva NC.

The mystery is: what became of Julia? She and husband sold property in N C in 1907 and moved (we think, together) to South Carolina. But Thomas Henderson is buried in S C beside another woman. We have found no evid of a divorce or have any information about Julia after 1907.

Would like to hear from anyone who has information about North Caroliona Slatton (Slaton) or Zachary families. Julia's grandfather was a Zachary. Such information might contain useful details about Julia E. Slatton Henderson, after 1907.

Thanks for any help.

Ancestor Name(s) Brightwell, Frank and Rosa may
Date(s) and Location(s) 1912 Monona County, Iowa~ Twp of Ashton
My grandfather was Omie Brightwell, born to Harry and Mary Belle Brightwell on 28-March-1915 in Correctionville, Iowa.
He married Carrie Hetland on 27-November-1938 in Fort Dodge Iowa. His brother, Elmer Calvier Ellis was born to Frank Ellis and Rosa May Brightwell on 4-August-1912, he was legitimate by birth certificate dated "filed December 31, 1912. Whew....... Frank was born in Ohio,Age at time of birth 46, Rosa was born in Iowa, Age at time of birth 32.
Number of children born to this mother incluing present birth was seven. I am thinking they were cousins and not brothers? I have heard that Omie's parents both died close to one another, and then went to live with a sister of one of the parents. The bothers are as listed, Victor, Verdie, Elmer and Omie. There are more I just don't have the correct info. Julia Brightwell is a grandmother of Omie's, he went to visit her after he was married to Karina (Carrie) in 1938. At that time, Julia lived here in Clinton Iowa, I have found her in a 1930's census.
Anyone with information would be great!
Thank you,

Link to Your Web Page (Genealogy and family links only, please)
Comments: I gathered some family info from your tree today... thanks for the data.

Mostly along the Sam Skelton family... as we have not been able to track much of anything about him.

While going through and adding the data to my data, I updated/corrected some for some of the items with the Acheson and Skelton families... which may have also included some Sheffield data.

As my mother was Colene Acheson (Skelton), I am very familiar with some of the entries.

I hope you are OK with this. I have data out on, and some pictures. I have been away from this endeavor for awhile and am now just getting back to it. We seem to draw a blank on Sam... and I am really puzzled.

Sam was my grandfather and lived with my parents for awhile... I barely remember him... but my confusion is I have a picture of a Milton and Wilton Skelton celebrating their 81st birthday... and I don't recall this as my grandfather... none of the information indicates this... so I am going to pull out my newspapers and pictures and try to resolve this.

If there is any info I can provide you, please let me know. I hope to make another trek to Alexandria and around this fall to look into more libraries, etc.

I will be updating my pages asap.

Incredible site! This is truly a gift to all family researchers. Thank you.

No clues exist in my family files for the birth date, state, death date or location, census data or anything else related to my Great-Grandmother's first husband and the father of her only child, Nora Viola Alexander (Carroll, 1st husband; King, 2nd husband). To my knowledge Wall moved to California in about 1920 or so, married and fathered a son named Tommy. I believe his second wife's name was Vera. I have not been able to identify Tommy Alexander and his line down or locate Wall Alexander on any record.

If you or any visitor to your site has information concerning Lew Wallis Alexander, Nora Viola Alexander, or Tommy Alexander, please share it with me.

Again, thank you for contributing a valuable resource!

I am looking for information on my great grandmother, Susan Southall, a cherokee indian maiden (reportedly stolen from the reservation by my great grandfather, sir name Sparkman). I understand she left, with her brother, and married my great grandfather. No one is sure of the history nor the exact names of anyone other than Susan. I have a picture of both and she is very much indian. I assume they lived in TN as this is where my grandfather was raised and my father born. Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated. My father was born in 1926 and the middle of 12 children. This would make my grandfather born approx. 1880's and my great grandfather in 1850's. This is all an estimate on my part for, as I said, not one member of my fathers family can give me any other information. Thank you, Sherry Sparkman Lotan Ortonville MI. slotan

Ancestor Name(s) Charles Phillip Alexander
Date(s) and Location(s) Died 1847 Cannon Co., TN
Charles Phillip Alexander was married to Kesiah (Sullivan?). I do not know who Charles' parents were. He was in Warren Co., TN 1830 Census and Cannon Co., TN 1840. He died in Cannon Co., TN in 1847. Court records show that he and his wife, also deceased, had 14 children: Mary Adaline who married John William Crane, Nancy who married John A. George, Margaret, Sarah, Berry, William, Martha, Rebecca, Surelda, Marcus, Isabella, Cyrus and Laura.

At the time of his death, Charles was the guardian of the children of William Sullins/Sullivan of Warren Co.,TN. I am wondering if perhaps Kesiah was also a Sullins/Sullivan and was related to William.

I think that maybe Charles was related to Archilus ALexander who was also in Cannon Co., TN.

I am the a great niece of Ernest East and have discovered a new revision of his compilation done in 1956. In it, he asserts that the Isaac East who married Nancy Roads in Ohio and died in Sinking Spring Ohio is the son of JOSEPH East, son of Thomas and Obedience East.---Not Isaac (Mansfield) East, son of Isaac and Joyce East, who was born in Adams Co. Ohio.

Have you ever come across this possibility in your research? Naturally I want to confirm this information, since until now, I have assumed that Nancy Roads married Isaac Mansfield East. The two Isaacs were born around the same time which makes it very confusing.

Name: Bill Davidson:   tunnelm

Ancestor Name(s) Davidson/Davison Family
Date(s) and Location(s) Charles City County, VA 1680s-1800s
Mary Davidson of Charles City County, VA (CCCo) was the apparent wife of Solomon Davidson (she was probably his second wife, based on some clues; Solomon died by 1772). Mary was a niece of Benjamin Dancy's (per Benjamin's CCCo will in the 1760s, as I recall). Mary's will was probated in 1793 in CCCo, VA, and her executors were "friends" Furman Southall and Henry Southall, and witnesses included Elizabeth Southall, John Southall and Edward Davidson. Mary's children were listed as Mary Major, William Davidson and Elizabeth Davidson. Another (probably older) Elizabeth Davidson had earlier married a Mr. Philips in CCCo, and a David Davidson (born in the early 1760s, apparently; was one of at least three David Davidsons in CCCo) had married a Mary Maza Philips. Other known Davi(d)sons in CCCo included David (d. 1687; was married to Sarah), Alexander (d. after 1690; wife was apparently Jane; Alexander MAY have not been related to the others), David (d. 1756), Ezekiel (d. 1762), Philemon (d. 1773), Stephen (probably died by about 1795, though there may have been two Stephen Davidsons in CCCo), Edward, Sr. (d. before 1815), Edward, Jr. (d. after 1815) and Henry, Clara and Nancy Davidson (all three died in the 1800s). Does anyone know if any of the Davidsons married into the Southall family? There was a Hezekiah Davidson in Cumberland County, VA from about 1757 until his death there in 1793. He had a son named Philemon Davidson, and he died in 1810 in Cumberland Co., VA. Hezekiah Davidson was in Albemarle County, VA before Cumberland Co., and I wonder if Hezekiah was part of the above CCCo Davidson family? Hezekiah was married to a Tabitha, and it strongly appears that she was Tabitha Childers (who had a Philemon Childers in her family). There was a Philemon Childers in CCCo in the late 1600s, as well as a Philemon Bradford in CCCo by at least the early 1700s. Any "blood connection" to the Southalls?

Ancestor Name(s) Austin Crump
Date(s) and Location(s) 1850 - 1910
My Ancestor was Austin Crump. I have only his death cert. He died in NYS but was born in Richmond Va. to Charles and Mary Crump who both were listed as being born in Charles City , VA. a great aunt insisted that Grandmother kept Austin's Civil War uniform underglass in their home and she would look at it when she visited. I believe that Austin may have been born sometime in the 1850's and would not likely have been old enough to serve during the war..But perhaps his father or other male relative served. There is also the possibility that his wife was not sure of his age. I would love to find this family. thank you

I am curious as to how concise the listing of Rev. John Thomson's children is on the website. WILLIAM T THOMPSON, my g-g-g-g-g-grandfather, born in VA, c 1730's, I have believed to be a possible child of his as well. My evidence of this is without great substance of information though. I am hoping someone might hold a key of information towards this premise. I know it was extreemly common during that time to name one's children with the given names of one's siblings. William T Thompson named three of his children respectively, Elizabeth, Jane and Sarah. All given names listed on the website of children (and possibly his siblings) of Rev. John Thomson. Can anyone help me?

Date(s) and Location(s) Lucy b:2/15/1901-d:2/1972 John b:9/20/1829-d:4/10/1909
I am in a sort of quandry. My great grandmother is Lucy East Robb. I have found some family trees that have John O. East as her father. I have more info. on him that suggests that he is probably her granfather. I can't find anything about him after the 1880 census. I have found her in the 1920 census under circumstances that match family stories. My grandfather doesn't really remember anything about his family. John had 3 sons with his wife Nancy that have been backed up by the 1860,1870 and 1880 census. They are George F.,David A., and Nethaniel(spelling right)M. I am thinking that one of them could be Lucy's father. I can't find any trace of any of them after 1880 though. I do have a second wife for John by the name of Martha Eleanor Pillow. They were married in 1907 and he died 2 years later. You will notice that the marriage was 6 years after Lucy's birth. Martha remarried in 1920 and my grandfather remembers her and her second husband, so they were still around. I just can't tell if lucy was his daughter or granddaughter. I am really pretty new to this, so I thought that you might have some of the info that I need, or may have some suggestions as to where I might be able to look.

Hi Susan,

It's been a while, life is very busy. I wanted to let you know, I am getting ready to purchase a farm and when I checked into prior owners, I found a ton of "Turner's" that originally owned the land. Some of the names match ours but I am unable to confirm it is the same line.

Do you know if any of "our" Turners lived in / owned land in what is now Culpeper County?

I noticed that the Hopewell Cemetery listing shows Ann Henderson, age 56, wife of John Henderson, died May 29, 1830 and a John Henderson who died May 23, 1842, age 62 yrs, 10 mo. I believe these to be the parents of my William Lee Henderson. William married Eleanor Selina Shelby, and this family is found in the 1850 census for Mecklenburg Co. After birth of 5 children, moved to Perry Co., AL. About 1879, William, Eleanor and all of their childrens families moved to Smith Co., TX. I need help in finding out who William's siblings and their families were, and whose child John Henderson (his father) was and who his siblings were. I will be coming from Texas to Raleigh, NC this weekend, but I don't know if I will be able to get to Mecklenburg county or not. Thanks Dana

Ancestor Name(s) Robert Asa Butler Sr. and Jr.
Date(s) and Location(s) @1703-1790 VA, NC, MD
I have been searching for all available information on my family. According to family records, I am descended in a direct line from Robert A. Butler through to Gabriel Butler from Alabama to my father Chub Poole Butler in Texas who recently passed away on May 12, 2004. In my searches It appears that our line originated from VA then migrated to NC. However some records indicate that Robert Sr. was born in MD. The Latter Day Saints say that Robert Sr's father was William Butler married to Rachel White and Sussannah Hartwell. But, I have been unable to verify this. I am new to ancestry tracing and was hoping that maybe you could help me. Our family records/members tell that we are distant cousins to Emily Stoddard. Thanks, Donna

Ancestor Name(s) Long and Masoner
Date(s) and Location(s) 1850 Tn and then KY
In working on our LONG and MASONER lines we came across the 1850 KY census that lists a Emaline Brightwell living with the Long family. You have it listed on your site.

as this family came from Meigs Co TN we are wondering who this Emaline Brightwell is and how she would be connected.

There is a Nancy Brightwell widow of Leonard who is living two houses away from Tavner Masoner in the 1840 Meigs Co census and a William Brightwell further down on that same page.

Could she have been a Masoner that married into the Brightwell family?

Ancestor Name(s) Martha Nancy Alexander
Date(s) and Location(s) Oct 18, 1845 - Jan 03, 1883 Meck. NC - Sumter Co., AL
Martha Nancy Alexander was my great aunt. She married my grandfather's brother, Joseph Theodore Shelby on Dec 18, 1872. She is buried with parents, William Simeral and Isabella Elizabeth Lee (Ibbie)Alexander in Elizabeth Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Sumter Co., AL. William was one of the builders of the present church in 1858. Sadly, it is now empty except for a horde of bees covering a 2-foot span up near the roof line outside! I was just there taking pictures - of the bees too! There are a number of other Alexanders and related kin buried there, as well. Including a Hezekiah Alexander, reads Born about 1800, Charlotte North Carolina. The headstone looks like a more recent addition. Would be curious to know placed it, along with three others, same type, no dates, for Hattie Louisa Alexander, Octavia Jane Alexander (believe she may be 1st wife of Martha's brother Eli Ezekiel,) and Kate Alexander McNair. Re: Eli E. - wife was Susan Harriet Mundy, sister to Mary Ann Mundy who was my Joseph T.'s second wife after Martha died. Good hunting everyone!
