My name is Sherry Rothwell Hildreth. I am hunting descendants of Isaac
Gore Shewmake. He was born Tues. Jan. 19 , 1813. He is listed as a descendant
of John and Catherine Byrd Thomas along with my ancestor Catherine Shewmake
Card. Recently I found in Bledsoe Co. Tenn. 1813 court term that John Thomas
was administor for John Shewmake.It is believed that John Thomas's daughter,
Elizabeth was married to John Shewmake.The Bledsoe Co. Shewmakes, Shoemakes,
Shoemates ,etc. probably descend from Jean De La Chaumette since his grand
son Samuel Shoemake Jr. is living there in 1830 90-100 years old and probably
the father of John. I found Isaac Shoemake with wife, Anna, and children,
John, Malite, William, Mahala, and Malindy in Grainger Co. Tenn. in 1850.
In 1860 he is in Claiborne Co. Tenn. listed as Isaac Shoemaker and 45 years
old . He is listed with wife, Anna, and children,Malinda,William,Mahala,
Andy, and George.

I understand that there are several Guinn and/or Gwinn families in Claiborne
County. My gg-grandfather was Joe (Joseph??) Guinn, and that's about all
I know about him. I'd like to find his parents, if possible, and I think
he may have been born or the family lived for a while in Claiborne Co.
Joe had three children by his first wife, Margaret "Maggie"
Brewer, (b. Jan. 31, 1875 in Hancock County): a son, Lon, who died very
young, and two daughters, Roberta Myrtle (b. July 7, 1989) and Viola Mae,(b.
April 4, 1904). The daughters may have been born in Middlesboro, KY.
It's unclear whether they eventually divorced, or whether Margaret just
kicked Joe out. She ended up owning and running a boarding house in Knoxville.
My father remembers that his grandfather (Joe Guinn) came to vist once,
and had a woman with him who might have been a new wife. This was in the
mid-to-late 1920s, which is the last time that I'm sure Joe Guinn was alive.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?? I'm at wit's end trying to find Joe
Guinn's family, so any help will be greatly appreciated. Email respones:

I am trying to find an obituary for Nancy Elizabeth MOORE; date of death
is April 2, 1926. I believe at the time of her death she was living with
her sister (my gt gdmother) in Cumberland Gap, TN. Nancy is buried at Scott
Cemetery. My gdmother was named after her. I have viewed the microfilm
of the Claiborne Co. Progress and it does not cover the year of her death,
1926. Does any know of another newspaper that might contain the obituary?

Am researching Hampden S. Scott of Claiborne County, the late America

are members of my family. My g+father is buried on the old Smith-Ball farm.
The Scott Cemetary is where many members of my family are buried.
I recently got to visit "Frances" this past September as well
as locate Hampden's burial site. Curiosity has us wondering why Hampden
left Knoxville for Claiborne county - the book "Valley of Vision's"

We are looking for information on the Patrick and Mary (Stocks) Bray
family. We know of one daughter Rebecca, and believe that some of the other
children are named John, Edmond and Thomas. This information comes from
Claiborne Co, deeds in the 1840's where the heirs sell their interest in
the land that was originally granted to Patrick Bray. According to Census
records there where other children. We are looking for information on the

I am researching my gggrandfather William Rodgers. He married Martha
Patsy Cross in 1805 In Grainger Co Tenn. They lived in Claiborne County
Tenn. on Bald Creek . Their children were ; Hiram, James Polly Rebecca
,Elizabeth and Wiley. I have letters that William wrote to Patsy after
she left him in 1820 to live with her mother Rebecca Cross in Cumberland.
He acted as an attorney for Rebecca in some land disputes. It seems he
lost most of his land to Hugh Graham. Margaret Graham wrote a letter to
Patsy saying that Hugh had taken over the property on Lone Mountain and
now all would be secure. I have tried to connect William with the David
Rogers Family in Powell Valley but seems William was born around 1776 same
as David Rogers. I have a lot on the Cross Family and know that Patsy ended
up in Russell Springs Ky. with her family. I am at a dead end with William
and thought maybe you had run across my Rodgers in some of your searches.
One of my letters said that he was part Cherokee and would go back to the
Cherokee Nation if Patsy did not return to Tenn. If you have any information
on thisRodgers family I would so appreciate hearing from you.

JENNINGS - CAMPBELL:
James R. JENNINGS married Louisa CAMPBELL in Tazewell, Claiborne Co., TN
in 1840. William and Thomas Jennings co-signed for James on the purchase
of property in 1842. William and Thomas are believed to be brothers and
the son of Edward Ned Jennings. James was last recorded in the 1860 Claiborne
Co. census and is believed to have died before 1870. Was he related to
William, Thomas, and Edward Jennings? Or, does anyone have any connection
for James. He seems to have been a "blacksheep" and maybe he
was stricken from family records. I believe that he forfeited on his loan
and is said to have been killed in a train robbery attempt near Knoxville.Also,
can anyone verify that there were two unrelated Jennings families with
one living in Cedar Forks and the other in Lone Mountain? I believe that
my Jennings came from Cedar Forks.
