Looking for my ggg grandmother Elizabeth. We are unsure of her maiden name spelling. Father may have been William OR Robert BRYANT. Mother may have been a CALHOUN. Elizabeth was born around 1816, and married Wilson Williamson Marlow around 1834-36. They had four children: Achsa (1836), James Robert (1838), Pleasant (1841) and Bethel (1843). She died young around the age of 25-27 shorthly after the birth of her last child. I am a descendent of Bethel. Bethel is a strange name. I once saw a William Bethel MARLOW and wondered if my gg grandfather was named after a this person. We believe that she and Wilson lived in Tennesse when first married and then moved to St. Claire Missouri. She died somewhere in Missouri,near St. Claire I would think. Does anyone have information on this family. I would love to hear from you. I have some information to share. Thank you, Vicki Walberg Vacaville, CA.

If I could have your assistance. I just restarted working on the Carters and ordered the social security application for Joe Bernice Carter who died in Sumner CO, Tn. He was born 1910. His parents are Robert Taylor Carter and Maggie Brown. He states his place of birth is Di??ns S.P., Willson CO, TN. I find a Dixon Springs but it is in Smith CO. Can anyone familiar with Wilson CO give me some suggestions as to what this town name might be? Looks like Dibers, Dibens, Deben, Dixons. I will ask a further question. If you figure out the right name, have any ideas what district it is on the 1910 census? Of course better yet, are there any Carter descendants that know the above names?

I am finishing up a study on James ODOM Jr. and all the related families of this early settler of Wilson County, and the part made into Cannon County Tennessee. If you have any ties in with this line I would like to add them to the study. Some names of interest to my personal lineage are ODOM, CRISP, KOONCE, JARMAN, WHEATLEY / WHITLEY. Other marriage names include WARD, ORAND, OWEN, WILLARD, FRANCIS, BOGLE, DILL, HIGGINS, WILSON, DUGGIN, RUTLAND / RUTLEDGE, LAX, VAUGHN, FITE, PATRICK, and so on. OWEN is especially well represented. WEBB is also another separate line of personal interest in Wilson County. These lines were in the area in the 1820s, 30s, 40s, 50s. Later a good many of them had moved elsewhere, including my family which went to Henderson County, Tennessee, then Ellis County Texas in 1879. I will answer all replies to this query to the best of my information. Please remember only the ODOM line connections are well researched and I may not have much information of the other lines.

In it, Neel leaves as two of his heirs, William and Elizabeth COMMONS, children of his daughter, Doshia COMMONS. In Lincoln County deed book G, money is received by Joseph COMMONS, father and guardian of Elizabeth. Here, the name is spelled NEALE. Other than his will, I can find nothing about Wiliam NEEL (or NEALE). I find several NEALs in the county but they seem to have no connection. William's heirs are listed as his wife, Elizabeth, sons Pallis, William Matterson, Charles, George, and daughters, Sally BLACK, Sophia BUCK: William and Elizabeth COMMONS, children of his daughter Doshia COMMONS. I believe Joseph COMMONS to be my ggggrandfather and it appears Doshia NEEL COMMONS was his wife, though perhaps a first wife as only two of Joseph's nine children were named in NEEL'S will, therefore not my ggggrandmother.
