Alexander c. 1835-42   3/16/99 2:59:55 AM Eastern Standard Time
My connection with Claiborne Co, so far, is a brief one. My ggg-grandfather, David Brawley Alexander b. 1789
in Ireland, immigrated to the US as a small child with his parents, John and Martha Alexander. They settled in Russell Co, VA in 1803. John, Sr. and David's brother John Jr. remained in Russell Co. However, many of the other
siblings removed to Tenn. in about 1835 and then to Linn Co, MO in about 1843. David B. died in Claiborne Co on Feb 3, 1843. His sons William, John, and David all went to Linn Co, MO. I suspect that several of the 11 children
and his widow may have remained in Tenn. Known children are William G b. 5-5-1814, John b. 4-15-1816, Martha Edmonston b. 8-15-1818, David b. about 1821, Mitchell b. 1823, Rachael b. 1825, Cummings b. 1829, Benjamin b. 1830,
Isaac b. 1832, Samuel b. 1834, Virginia b. 1837. David's wife was Margaret Gilmer (Gilmore) who died about 1860 (place unknown).
Does anyone know of the burial place of David B. Alexander? Did any of this family remain in Claiborne Co after David's death? I am grasping at straws for the place in Ireland where David was born. A headstone may list his city of birth.
Thanks and best regards,
Paul Alexander

DUNN   3/9/99 10:58:52 AM Eastern Standard Time
I am very interested in finding out about a incident that happened around 1894. The tale goes
that my gr grandfather shot a man over a property dispute. I have been told he went to prison and I have been told that he never served any time because his brother was some kind of official.

So at least, I know his brother wasn't a sheriff.Do you know of any place I could go to find any information on this incident?  I'm new at searching so would appreciate any help. Thanks again,  Gayle Rowlett.

HODGE SULFRIDGE JENNINGS DAVENPORT  3/7/99 9:13:47 PM Eastern Standard Time
Was just reviewing the Claiborne Co. pages looking for Davenport and
Sulfridge but noted the Subject names.  John Davenport was in Claiborne
Co. and in Russell Co., VA and I have some legal matters between he and
a Martin Fugate... but was in the 1820's...  Also he was married to
Rebecca Sulfridge who was from Claiborne Co., but was later married to a
Frances Jennings Hall.    The Hodges comes in when a Robert Hodges, son
of Isham Hodges, so of a Thomas Hodges (I think) was Surety for John
Davenports marriage in Franklin Co. VA.  So....  just a coincidence
maybe - or does someone doing these other studies maybe find a fitting
piece.....  Bonnie

became of a little piece of your family history.  It is included in the
minutes of the Claiborne County Court session of November 1807.  Without
further comment, it simply states that:  "It is proven to the
satisfaction of the Court by the oath of Dorkus Bristow that a piece of
the left ear of a certain James Conner was bit of in a Skirmish
fighting---with another man in the month of Sept 1807 it is therefore
ordered that the same be recorded."

JENNINGS 3/1/99 12:55:19 AM Eastern Standard Time
I am trying to identify the parents and wife of ELLIS JENNINGS, who was born
in Grainger or Claiborne County in 1808.  ELLIS JENNINGS was my
gr-gr-grandfather. He moved from TN to Carroll County, MO in 1835 or 1836
with a wife and five children.
I think ELLIS may be EDWARD "Ned" JENNINGS' son, because he was listed next
to EDWARD and HENDERSON JENNINGS on a 1831 list of Claiborne County white
males 21 years old or older.  He was also listed along with HENDERSON  and
JOHN JENNINGS in a court order dated June 18, 1827 to work as hands to open
a road from the corner of EDWARD JENNINGS' field to the top of a  bald hill.
ELLIS and his wife and first child  could, also, fit into the ages and sexes
of persons enumerated in
EDWARD JENNINGS' household in the 1830 census.
However, the EDWARD JENNINGS genealogy report posted on the Claiborne County
page does not list ELLIS JENNINGS as a child of EDWARD.  ELLIS could be a
middle name, which could make finding him on legal records difficult.
EDWARD's descendants report on the Claiborne County page shows a son named
PRIOR JENNINGS born in 1808.  However, it also shows PRIOR as having a
daughter, EMILY, who married and lived in Claiborne County.  If this PRIOR
was my ELLIS, I can't imagine why he would have taken five children with him
to MO and left one behind.  ELLIS JENNINGS, also, named his second son PRIOR
PENDLETON JENNINGS (my great-grandfather).  This PRIOR was born in TN in
1831, went with the family to Carroll County, MO; where he was raised,
married, died, and is buried.
ELLIS' first wife evidently died after 1841 in MO and he married a NANCY
JANE HEARTLESS in MO in 1847.  ELLIS had thirteen known children.  Eight by
his first wife (name unknown) and five with his second wife, NANCY
HEARTLESS.  He died between 1852 and 1855 in MO. ELLIS' children's names
are:  WILLIAM H.; PRIOR PENDLETON; JOHN E.; ALEY; ANN E.; all born in TN.:
SARAH E.; and LUCINDA H.; all born in Carroll County, MO.
I also copied a Claiborne County deed recorded in Book F, page 245 dated 18
October 1820 whereby JOHN JENNINGS is selling 300 acres on Ball Creek to
JOSEPH JENNINGS.  JOHN JENNINGS states that this 300 acres is land  he
inherited from his deceased father, WILLIAM JENNINGS and represents his
one-seventh share of the inheritance.  I would like to know who the other
six heirs
were.  I am guessing perhaps JOHN, JOSEPH, EDWARD, HEZEKIAH, ISHAM, and
ROYAL (from Grainger County) might have been six of the seven.  I believe
that ELLIS is WILLIAM's grandson even if EDWARD is not his father.

Hello, I received the following and was asked to try to
find more info. about him
“R. D. Bradshaw who published the ***BRADSHAW-BRATCHER
Newsletter awhile back, his ancestors were from
Virginia.  Ever so often comments would be made that
even in the SAME legal document, the name would be
spelled BOTH ways.  The address I had for him was
Tn. 37724-0700.***  He published a lot of early B/B
records.  Evidently the Virginia Bratcher/Bradshaws
came through the Cumberland Gap to VA and KY.  (Some
also came from SC, up the Tennessee River also after
stopping off in GA for the Land Lotteries.)”
 This is from Mrs. Joyce A. Rex of 901 Mockingbird
