DOOLEY

Hi Claiborne Researchers and Dooley cousins (I know you are outthere). I am looking for information about the Thomas DOOLEY family. Thomas is listed in the 1830 and 1840 for Claiborne County, and paida school tax in 1832 and 1838. Both census show him with a woman theright age to be his wife and several children. By 1850 he is livingin Lawrence Co., KY, with a completely new family. (Different agefor wife and all children under 10.) Does anyone know what happened to the family in Tennessee? DidThomas and his wife divorce and she get the kids? Did the wife andkids die? Did Thomas just walk out and leave them? (I did not findthe rest of the family in Claiborne Co., on the 1850 census.) Wasthere any plague or sickness in the county between 1840 and 1850? Does Claiborne County have death records for this time period? Iknow some counties have a journal of year to year deaths, not kept bythe state. Does Claiborn County have birth records, again just thejournal-type thing?
