I am trying to find my RAMSEY ancestors. It is believed that he came from the Hamilton County, TN area. William Bradford RAMSEY was born September 16, 1825 in TN. He left TN and moved to Arkansas around 1848. He married Catherine TOLBERT (born February 17, 1830 TN) in Stone County, AR on July 29, 1851. William Bradford had a sister, Jane RAMSEY born between 1823 and 1829, that married Carmen WADKINS (born around 1818 TN). They were married in 1848 in Hamilton County, TN. He and Jane moved to Van Buren County, AR around 1851. Carmen’s parents were Jesse and Margaret WADKINS. It was written on a RAMSEY family Bible page that Bradford RAMSEY was an adopted child. It also stated that the family lived in Chattanooga, TN and that they owned a large estate with two railroads running across it. I have been trying for a long time to find William Bradford RAMSEY’s parents with no luck. I would appreciate any help that you can give me.
Thank you,

Does anyone know where Jeptha Marion HAWKINS is buried, when he died, etc. He was still alive in the 1930 in Hamilton County, TN Census, living next door to his sister Flora CONNOR? He was born around 1871 and I lost him after the 1930 census in Hamilton County. He went by Marion HAWKINS; but we think his legal name was Jeptha Marion HAWKINS. In the 1930 Census, he is 59 years-old.
