CUPP PARKER WILLIAMS   Sat Apr 17 11:17:33 EDT 1999
I am trying to locate some of my wifes people that are PARKERS.
Let me start from the beginning.
On 6 Dec 1847 Daniel Perry CUPP married Nancy Elizabeth PARKER in Claiborne County, TN. They eventually moved to Whitley County, TN
They went on to have a son by the name of Jacob CUPP that moved to Bell County, KY and married a Sarah MIRACLE on 16 Dec 1968. About
1900 or very shortly thereafter, JOHN D. PARKER's son OSCAR PARKER came to live with his Cousin Jacob CUPP in Bell County, KY. He came
from Hightop, TN (I believe this to be in Campbell County, TN but I am not sure) with two of his sister's daughters. One named Victoria
and the other Marie (I think or a name close to that). He lived with Jacob for awhile and eventually marrying Jacob's daughter Sarah
Caroline CUPP. JOHN D. went on to marry a second and third time to two MARSEE women.
But I am searching for John D. PARKER's father who I believe to be a brother of Nancy Elizabeth (PARKER)CUPP mentioned above.
I am in search of my wife's Williams side of her family of Caliborne County, TN. About 28 April 1889 Grover Harrison WILLIAMS was born to
Henry Williams and Josephine GILBERT in Mulbery Flats, Hancock County, TN. He, I think, was from VA but I have no documentation to
justify that thinking. Henry and Josephine had three more sons, White, Homer and Silas and one daughter Jessica.
They farmed in and around Forge Ridge, TN before moving to Collins County, TX around 1914.
Grover Harrison had married Mary Ball of Gibson Station, TN and with his children moved to TX with the rest of his family. Grover returned
to TN in the early 1920's and lived the rest of his life in Gibson Station, TN.
I know this is not much information and with the name of Williams being so prolific I have gotten no further than this.
Any help will be appreciated and I will be indeted to you.

HURST   4/11/99 8:49:57 PM Eastern Daylight Time
My ggg grandfather was Calvin Elijah Hurst, b. ca 1816 in Claiborne Co., parents unknown.  One source says Jesse Hurst & Winnie Breeden, another Elijah Hurst & Mary ???, #2 spouse Lina Sharp.  Cannot verify either.  Would you have info on any of these names?
Also, Elijah Hurst, b. Wyeth Co., Va. m. Mary Harboard.
Some of my Hurst relatives relocated from Madison Co., Missouri to Coryell Co., Texas near Gatesville.  While doing research there, I ran across a historical write-up on John Harvard Hurst, b. Mar 25 1825 in Putnam Co., In, d. Nov 3 1885 in Hurst Springs, Texas.  He married Mary Elberry Windham and his parents were listed as Elijah Hurst and Mary Harboard.  I've been unable to make a connection to my family thus far, but thought you might possibly be interested as you have the names Elijah & Mary Harboard in your file.
