MABERRY ,SULLIVAN

Hiram Maberry was the father of a daughter named Ollie. Ollie married NB Sullivan who was the son of James & Sarah Sullivan. Ollie is not listed in the 1880 Clay County Census but her parents and older siblings are. NB Sullivan is listed as 12 yrs old in that same census. I am interested in getting information on the Maberry Family.

KIRK

I am looking for the burial place of my ggg grandmother, Rachel KIRK. She was married to George M. Kirk and is on the Jackson Co., TN 1850's census. It lists her as 37 years old and living with George and their children: Marion, John, Pheraby, Margaret, Dicy, George and Stephen (twins), Atline, Rachel and a Andrew Wilson (age 30). Her maiden name was either BROWN or WILSON. I believe she had one more child in 1850, Dennis Carrol and then died sometime before 1860. George shows up in the 1860 Texas Co., MO census with a new wife, Jane A. MOORE, and most of the children. The twins stayed behind with a TINSLEY family, as shown on the 1860 Jackson Co. Census. Since the Kirk family lived near Celina, I thought I would give Clay Co. a look and I did find these cemeteries: Kirk-Brown Cemetery, Kirk-Chapman Cemetery and Kirk-Morgan Cemetery. If anyone has info on my Kirk family or on any of the cemeteries (including directions), please let me know. I am also looking for George Sr.'s parents and siblings.

MULLENS, VANN, KERR

I am researching the possibility of my great-great grandmother's Native American heritage. She was born Nancy E. MULLENS on September 6, 1840 in Tennessee. Her parents were David MULLENS & Anna VANN. Nancy married John W. KERR ca 1860, place unknown. All my life, I have been told that Nancy was of Cherokee Indian descent. After conferring with several other family members, I have found that they too have heard similar stories. From other research, I know that the VANN surname originated in Scotland, therefore, the Native American heritage must have come from a female ancestor. Any help at all in this regard would be truly appreciated.
