We are pleased to let all those who have contributed to the Worsham - Washam Family History know that the manuscript is now complete. We still have many unlinked families, however, it is time to share our findings and collections with others. The book will cover the time span of about 1640 to about 1900 with some families going forward to more recent years. Rooted in England, the limbs of this immigrant family tree spread across much of the American continent. Many families are covered who settled in Tennessee and those who passed through on their way West. See the new home page at: Larry Washam & Dorothy Tuttle

My great-grandfather's marriage certificate says that his mother, Martha Myers, was born in Clay Co., TN. (She would have been born around 1870 and was married in 1886 in Daviess Co., IN.) But my great-grandfather's brother's marriage certificate says that his mother, Martha Myers, was born in Nushroon, TN. Has anyone heard of this place? I can't find it on any map or on the USGS database. Perhaps this was an old town that isn't there anymore?

Trying to find the parents of my gg-grandmother, Martha MYERS Bline. I have two of Martha's son's marriage certificates that say she was born in Clay County, TN. I'm not sure of her birthdate, but her marriage certificate (from Daviess Co., IN) says she was married on 27 Oct 1886. So she probably would have been born around 1870. I know this is a long shot, considering the dates, but I found ONE marriage certificate for a Myers man in Clay County on 27 Sep 1871. It was Thomas P. MYERS, who married Rebecca OVERSTREET. Does anyone know if Thomas and Rebecca MYERS had a daughter named Martha? Or was Thomas Martha's brother? Thanks a lot!
