MARY MOORE b 8 Oct 1835 Bedford County, TN I am seeking
information about the family of my gg grandmother MARY MOORE
b 8 Oct 1835 probably in Bedford County, TN and married 9
Oct 1855 James Franklin Fletcher, Jr, son of James Franklin
Fletcher, Sr. and Jane Meriwether Sims. I have no
information about the identity of the parents of MARY MOORE
but believe she had a number of siblings including sister
HARRIET ROXANNE MOORE. The children of JAMES FRANKLIN
FLETCHER, Jr. and MARY MOORE were: HARRY HOOPER, MARTHA
(Mattie) (my great grandmother), ANNIE, JOHN D. and GEORGE
F. MARTHA (MATTIE) FLETCHER m 1877 Bedford Co Dr. LORENZO
DOW NEWMAN MILLER (graduate of Vanderbilt Medical College)
and they had 3 children: EVA MILLER (my grandmother) b 1878,
JAMES PERCY b 1880, and ROBERT MARION. MATTIE and James
Marion died from the childbirth following which the Moore
family took charge of EVA and JAMES PERCY MILLER. Dr. Miller
remarried and practiced medicine for many decades in xxx.
HARRIET ROXANNE MOORE (Aunt Roxy) took care of my
grandmother, EVA MILLER, who as a child attended the Webb
School (for Boys) because the Webb family had daughters at
that time. The only other information I have is 1) the
unsubstantiated notion that the family name of the mother of
MARY and HARRIET R. MOORE might have Perry, and 2) that
HARRIET ROXANNE MOORE was married to ROBERT SIMS MILLER
(half brother of LORENZO DOW NEWMAN MILLER) and then to
FLETCHER BUCHANON. Any information you can provide about any
Moores of Bedford Co will be much appreciated. R. Palmer

I am trying to obtain information on the Phillips family
which migrated from Bedford County, TN, to Independence
County, AR. I am not sure when exactly they migrated to AR,
but they were supposed to have moved with the Ogilvie family
(and possibly other families) sometime around the turn of
this century. The latest Phillips family member I know of is
Joseph G. Phillips, who was born March 23, 1834. He was
married to Martha Jane Brown, who was born April 20, 1843.
She was the daughter of William B. and Charlotte Wood Brown,
another prominent family of Bedford County. We have cemetery
records that show the Brown, Wood and Phillips families
buried in cemeteries in and around Bedford County, but have
no direct ties to the heads of households. Joseph G.
Phillips was Confederate soldier in the Tennessee forces
during the Civil War. He and Martha Jane Phillips had nine
children who were reported to have been born in Bedford
County: Robert Ernest, Charlotte Elizabeth, Samuel Thomas,
Nancy Ellen, Emma Jane, James Matthew, William Jessie, Mary
Etta, and Tennessee F. I am primarily interested in
determining Joseph G. Phillips' line, as well as the lines
of William B. Brown and his wife, Charlotte A. Wood Brown.
Charlotte A. Wood was the daughter of John and Elizabeth
Wood. Any information anyone has on these topics would be
most appreciated. I would be happy to share the materials I
have on these families. Thank you. Gary Perkey

Sometime ago I responded to a query in Shelbyville, the
individual stated that he had (or had access) to a book of
Elliott's and he himself was related. The book specifically
mentioned Elliott's in Bedford and Coffee counties. I
e-mailed that individual and never received a response. The
e-mail address went down. Does anyone have information about
Elliott research in the greater Shelbyville area.
My Elliott family resided in Coffee, Bedford, Rutherford,
and the area for over 100 years (1830 - 1935). Thanks in
advance, Michael Elliott, [email protected]
