DOOLEY, DOOLIN, DULIN  7/18/98 8:46:25 AM Central Daylight Time
Looking to communicate with anyone researching this surname in Claiborne County. I have a John DOOLIN, m Luvisa SMITH cir 1815 in Claiborne. John served in the War of 1812, along with Elijah SMITH. John died around 1830. His children, Bazel, Mary and Susan moved to Morgan Co, KY by 1850. I believe there were other children also who might have stayed in Claiborne County. Luvisa doesn't show up in KY until 1860. I can't find her in the 1850 Claiborne Census or the 1840 unless she might be Elizabeth Dooley. Elijah and his family also moved to Morgan Co, KY. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks Darrold Crites, 
Terri Rene (DaVar) Howard
Looking for any & all information about this family; will gladly exchange data. -
Name: Jesse DaVar (Tate) Parents: Unknown - may have been raised in the household of "Old Garrison TATE"
Birth abt 1780 in Virginia Marriage: to Martha Cane, 16 DEC 1806 in Claiborne, Tennessee
Military 1812 in Tennessee Jesse Tate DEVER's widow applied for a pension for the War of 1812. She said Jesse had served in Capt. Henry Hunter's Co TN Mil. (Service was unsubstantiated, application rejected)
Residence Claiborne County, Tennessee (bet AUG. 1815 and MAY 1823)
Census 1840 in Monroe County, Indiana Census 1850 in Perry Township, Monroe County, Indiana
Death 7 JUN. 1860 in Monroe County, Indiana Probate AUG. 1867 in Monroe County, Indiana
Widow & Children / Listed as Heirs: Martha Cane Dever / Martha Dever Widow; Sarah “Sally” DaVar (abt 1810-) / Unknown heirs of Sarah Mofford; Jane Davar (abt 1810 or 1812-) / Jane Boruff; Delilah ”Delila” DaVar (abt 1811-aft 1874) / Delilah Martindale; Wylia DaVar (17 APR 1816-21 NOV. 1874) / Wylie Daver; Ira Guy DaVar (abt 1818-) / Ira Daver; Keziah Davor (12 DEC 1820-22 MAY 1884) / Keziah Lucas wife of John Lucas; Eliza A. DaVar (1822 or 1823-5 MAR 1878) / Eliza A. Smith wife of James Smith; Amanda Davar (abt 1826-) / Amanda Burkart wife of Joseph Burkart; David Davar (abt 1830-) / David Daver; Patsy Ann “Martha” Davar (-) / Martha Evans wife of James Evans.
AKA: Pension Records from the War of 1812 give his name as Jesse Tate Dever. February 1833 land records give his name as Jesse Davar. His name is given as Jesse Davers in the 1840 census. Jesse's surname on the 1850 Census of Monroe Co, Indiana is spelled Dever and Davar by two different transcribers. August 1867 probate records give his name as JESSE DAVER.

In the Claiborne Co. court records (1815 - 1823) the Aug. 1815 entry is for Jesse “Devers”. From that time on, the name is spelled: Dever, Devers, Deaver, Deavers, Deavors, Davor, Daver, Devor, Davers. These records are typed transcriptions of the originals, so some spellings might be the result of difficulty in reading. But the pronunciation seems to have been "Day-ver". That means that when written "Dever" the first "e" (as well as the "ea" in "Deaver") was given the German pronunciation. Since Jesse grew up in the home of Garrison Tate, and sometimes used that name, it is possible that he wasn't at all clear on the spelling of his name, and the various clerks spelled what they heard.

I am attempting to verify information I obtained about Matthew Monroe Campbell (parents unknown) born 10 Nov 1810 "near Cumberland Gap, Tennessee" (according to biographical sketch about him in Indiana University: Its History from 1820 to 1890).

I would appreciate any help or suggestions to help get me confirm this information and to, hopefully, find Matthew's parents. Thanks!!! Janell

Am trying to find out the names of the parents of Haynes BYRD. Haynes was born 1860 and died 1915 according to "Claiborne Co., TN. Vital Statistics 1914-1925 published by Cleveland Public Library, edited by Edna Wiefering." What are these records and how would I find out where they got Haynes name! I know his brothers are William Cam Byrd, John Wesley Byrd and Solomon Byrd.

What is this publication and where would I find a copy? If you have access to those records, I would appreciate a look-up for William Cam BYRD, Haynes BYRD and John Wesley BYRD.

I am looking for anyone in the Eden, Edens, Eddins, or any of the multiple variations of that name. Most of them were in Lee Co., VA, but they wandered around to Claiborne, Hancock, Hawkins Cos., TN, as well as Bell Co., KY. Thanks in advance!
