 REYNOLDS, HAYES I'm trying to discover the name of my great-great-grandmother's father. Her name is Lucy R. HAYES, born about in 1827 in either Alabama or Tennessee, depending on which census is used. The earliest census, 1850, said Alabama. She married James W. B. REYNOLDS on 25 June 1844 in Dickson County, Tennessee. Lucy's mother was Rachael (maiden name unknown) who was born in North Carolina in 1800. Besides Lucy her children were R. L. Hayes (male) born abt. 1827 in Alabama possible twin to Lucy. All these children were born in Tennessee, according to the 1850 Texas Census for Upster County: R. HAYES (female) born abt. 1828, R. G. HAYES (male) born abt. 1830, and M. HAYES (male) born abt. 1833. Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated. Joel Neill

I have reason to believe that my ancestor originate in Dickson County. I recently found a marriage record of P.H. MATHEWS to LYDIA LEATHERS 9 MAR 1856. Family history says that this is the county that he left from to go to Missouri with his four children by his first wife ELIZABETH McNICHOLS (married in Stewart County 20 Jan 1848). He had a brother living in Benton County about this time. They were not too consistant in how they spelled their name. I have found it as MATHIS, MATHUS, MATHEWS, MATHEW, and MATTHEWS. His name was PERRY HARVEY MATTHEWS. Can anyone shed any light on this man or his family for me. He had two daughters by his second marriage. One, Virgina, died young, the other born after his death in 1857 was raised in Tennessee. Her name was WILMUTH HARVEY MATTHEWS HUDGINS. She married John Hudgins and then John Merrel. Hudgins, I believe she married in Tn. and Merrel in Tx. I am most anxious to hear from anyone that can shed some light on this family!

Before she died my grandmother said Susan Brown (her grandmother) was from Kentucky, but it could have been her mother who was from there. My gggrandmother Susan Brown b. 1843 or 44, married Dennis F. Hudson and lived in Dickson County. This is the correct age for Susan in 1850. Does anyone know about this? Thank you.
