headstone at the Fairfield cemetery, he was born June 28,

Tennessee Infantry in the Civil War. He married Mary Ridner.
According to her headstone at the Fairfield cemetery she was

family records (a will) from Samuel Haggard and believe that
he was the grandfather or great grandfather of James Richard

Haggard. According to his headstone at the Fairfield

has only the initials and all family records and photographs
just call him "Ollie." Finally, we are looking for
information on "Will" Haggard, son of James Richard Haggard
and brother of Ollie Haggard. Will is buried in an unmarked

CHESHIRE/CHESSHIRE/CHESSER/CHESHIR/CHESSHIR I need
records showing the names and information about the parents
of a Daniel CHESSHIR who was born 5 Apr. 1824 in Virginia,
probably Halifax Co., and married a Sallie RAULSTON (or
ROLSTON) from Tennessee. Daniel and Sallie CHESSHIR were
living in Tennessee, probably Bedford Co., in May 1845, when
their first daughter, Elizabeth Jane CHESSHIR, was born.
Their first son, James Riley CHESSHIR was born in Tennessee,
in Jul 1846. The family soon after moved to Red River Co.,
Texas, where Daniel CHESSHIR appears on the county tax rolls
in 1848. Daniel and Sallie CHESSHIR settled in Red River Co.
and had eleven more children. He died in Red River Co., 26
Jun 1888 and is buried in the Halesboro Cemetery in that
county. Some sources say that Daniel CHESSHIR'S given name
was Nathaniel, that his father was Zachias CHESSHIR and his
mother was Ketura (or Catherine)unknown surname. I need
proof of these things. Census records specify that this
Zachias CHESSHIR was born in Virginia (probably Halifax
Co.), about 1791. Records show that Zachias CHESSHIR and his
family were living in Bedford Co., Tennessee in 1835 and
1840, then in Red River Co., Texas in 1850.

John TOWNZEN Sr, John TOWNZEN Jr, Wm., Joshua, &
Whitfield TOWNZEN in Bedford Co. TN 1800-1818. No record of
them in Bedford after they sold land in 1818. 1820 census
Stewart Co. TN has a John, William and two named Thomas
TOWNZEN. Are these the same? Whitfield TOWNZEN & an
Edmond TOWNZEN show up in St. Clair Co. IL, same time. All
show born in NC. Need County in NC, need proof Bedford
TOWNZEN'S are same as Stewart Co's. Joshua & a George
TOWNZEN are later in Maury Co. TN. What is connection for
all these TOWNZEN's. Family legend is that if it is spelled
with the "Z" then they are family. In 20 years research,
name may be spelled any number of ways, but if it's the
right on, any signature on document always has the "z"
spelling. Can anyone connect these men for me? Thanks!

MCGUIRE, b. abt. 1810. She was the daughter of Thomas
MCGUIRE and Ann LEE. They lived in Bedford Co., TN in 1830,
then moved to IL. After death of John Wesley, Temperance may
have married Elisha HARMON and moved back to Bedford Co.
(1860 census) with children: Catherine CARPENTER, William
HARMON, Rufus HARMON, Leonidas HARMON, and James K. Polk
HARMON. By 1880 census, Elisha and Temperance HARMON had
moved back to IL. The 1850 Marion Co., IL census shows
Elisha and Temperance HARMON with children William and
Louis, living next door to five children without parents:
Noah CARPENTER, Thomas, CARPENTER (both born in TN), John
CARPENTER, Catherine CARPENTER, and Emaline CARPENTER (all 3

CARPENTER-SHOOK-SEARS. Benjamin CARPENTER, b. abt 1785,
d. possibly before 1820 in an accident while engaged in
boating on the Mississippi River. His family may have been
living in Indiana at the time. He supposedly signed a

to the Tennessee General Assembly" on 6 Oct 1815. About
1810/1812 he married Melia (Melea, Milly) SHOOK, b. abt
1787, d. after 1850. She may have been daughter of William
SHOOK and Catherine SEARS of Bedford Co., TN. After
Benjamin's death, Melia lived in Bedford Co in 1820, then
moved to Jefferson Co., IL in 1830. There is a Milly
CARPENTER, with family, living in Bedford Co. in 1820 census
