Nancy Cassada NelsonWed Aug 27 05:39:54 1997 McNEIL, George jr. b 1832, m. Ursla or Urslann. In 1865 or 66, McNeil killed Madison BURCHFIELD in his own dooryard, supposedly because they supported opposite sides in the Civil War. George is gone from the 1870 Claiborne Census, but his wife and children stayed on and are buried in family cemeteries. Need to know if George was prosecuted for this killing. Also need to learn fate of Burchfield's widow, Nancy McAMIS CASADA BURCHFIELD. She was my g g grandmother and is said to have lived into the 1890's. G McNeil jr's children, all born 1857-1866: Larkin, Thoepholis, Olivia, (m A.C. AUSBURN), George W.
Steven H Alsip Sun Aug 24 15:51:47 1997 I am searching for JOHN ROBINSON b. abt 1820 d. bef 1860. He was married to NANCY WILLIAMS, b. Apr. 27, 1822 , died June 11, 1902. She was the daughter of JOHN WILLIAMS , and his wife RUTH. They had a son named JOHN HARLOW ROBINSON, who was married to TABITHA CAMPBELL. They also had a daughter that was my grandmothers, grandmother. Her name was NANCY MIRANDA ROBINSON. She was born in 1839, Hawkins, County, TN. SHe died April 16, 1916, @ Corbin, Whitley County, KY. MIRANDA was also known to go by NANCY, her first name. My grandmother died the day before Christmas eve last. NANCY MIRANDA has been a "strange bird to track"! Apparently she married ELI HOWELL , March 1, 1856, in Jefferson County, TN. She & ELI HOWELL apparently had a son, ROBERT HOWELL. The marriage did not last long [ no divorce has been found to date ]. ROBERT HOWELL was born abt. 1856. However by Nov. 29, 1858 , in GRAINGER COUNTY, TN., she remarried my G/G grandad, DUNCAN HASH [1838/40 -1900/10 ], who had just ended a brief marriage himself, in Whitley Co., KY. ! They are both buried in Corbin, Ky., but even they were seperated in their last years. I believe Nancy Miranda was hiding her 1st child from his father [ ELI HOWELL ]. After she moved to Whitley Co., Ky., with her second husband, she is found in the next county [ Knox Co., KY.} on the 1860 census. They had lived in Grainger COunty, Tn., in Oct. 1859, when my great grandad, JOHN HASH [1859/1935 ] was born. After 1860, the Howell child is not found. I believe Eli Howell "collected" his son. A older brother of my grandmother's was in his 90's when he died. He told me of a trip to the Morristown , Tn., area as a very young man. There his father introduced him to a "uncle he had never heard of before"! This uncle was involved in some sort of wood business. Was this the missing child "Robert Howell"? My great uncle could not remember any more info about the meeting. NANCY MIRANDA ROBINSON HOWELL HASH went onto have 11 more children with her 2nd husband, most of which migrated to Eureka, California in the early 1900's. I am looking for this JOHN & NANCY WILLIAMS ROBINSON family, as well as ANY info possible about this missing ELI HOWELL, the son, ROBERT HOWELL, and any thing connected to this enstranged family. PLEASE!!!! If you know anything, or are connected to this family, PLEASE CONTCT ME!? I will share all I have. STEVEN H. ALSIP, 1897 5th street road, Corbin, Ky., 40701-9590, 606/523-2700
