I am trying to locate information on Silas Moore who married Morning
Moon and had a daughter named Emily Moore (later Quaid) sometime
around 1818. I am using this service because I saw a Silas Moore
listed. In my records in 1901 Silas was already deceased and his
daughter was applying for identification as a Mississippi Choctaw.
It will take a few days for a new query to get posted.

My grandparents, John and Swana Creel, lived in Ethridge around
1919-1923. My grandmother witnessed a murder by a man whose last name
was Robinson around 1922. She was threatened that if she
testified that she would be killed. After testifying,
she and her family had to move for her safety and continued to move
for the next twenty years. They lived in Milton, FL last and it was
there that they were notified that the man had died. They said she
said she was free at last and would not have to move again and they
didn't. I would like to know the details concerning this case as I
just found out the reason for them moving so much. I'm sure it would
have been in the paper, but I live too far away to research it and
the paper is not on line. I think they might have lived close to the
New Hope Community. If you can cast a light on any of this I will be

- once to Sarah E. Kellam in 1858 and to Sarah E. Forsyth - 1863 -
both times in Maury County, TN. He also enlisted in Maury County. I
believe him to be descended from the Columbia Cabler Family, perhaps
from one of the lesser-known children, as I have remained unable
trace him to his parents. I also believe that these two wives may
have been the same person. Perhaps she remarried briefly during the
war, believing him to be dead.?? He had a son by one of these women
named John Morgan Cabler. He later brought John Morgan with him to

they came from before living in Lawrence Co., TN..
They were residing in the 15th district, which I assume is the West
Point area. I have their Death Certificates, but they do not hold the
answers to any questions. It's almost as if they had something to
hide or were very illiterate.
There is a Sarah E. Waters in Dist 15, Lawrence county in 1880.
Daughter of John & Jane Waters, age 23 born GA. Father born Arkansas,
mother born Tennessee. But this is not the right age to be Sarah.
In that same district is a George Paine age 28 but his
birthplaces say England. He's the only Payne/Paine in Lawrence county
in 1880. And, this is not right for his age either.

Seeking information regarding Martha A. Ishum/Isom who was the
daughter of Charles & Mary (Warnett or Barnett) Ishum/Isom. Martha
was born in 1840 in TN (still searching for the county possibly
Carroll) and her father
Charles was born in NC 1800, mother TN around 1810 and was Cherokee
on her mother's side. Martha married James B. Lookadoo in 1856 in
Clark County, AR and she had four sons with him. James died around
the middle 1860s and Martha ended up with an Atlas P. Dunn b. 1851
GA. They homesteaded in AR and then moved into Oklahoma, then Indian
Territory in about 1885. They had three girls and maybe a son.
Martha disappears after that time and we are trying to find if anyone
knows anything at all about her Native American genealogy. Anyone
who knew of Mary Barnett/Warnett possibly Barnes, please contact us.

I descend from Wm.P Allen who stow away on the wagon train of Capt.
Carroll ( I think Carroll might be N.A. Carroll). N. A. Carroll came
to Texas in 1872. Wm. Allen came to Tx. same year. My gg
grandfather. William Pirtle Allen told family he was From Love Co.,
TN.. There is and never was a Love Co., TN.
At 12-13 yers of age, he should have known his parents/siblings
names. But, he never gave that information. Maybe suspect?
Both, Newton Addison Carrell, and Wm. Pirtle Allen were in Ellis Co,

Commuinity Cemetery, he died 1920. His son James "Russell" ALLEN,
was born in 1900 and he was 20 yrs of age when his father died. No
name is on the grave, because they could not afford a marker. We only
know the he is buried there because Russell ALLEN told me 2 years
before he died. He showed me where Shell ALLEN was buried and there
was a rock on the spot. Of course, it is gone now. Is there any way
that I could get a record of his death? OR, names be placed at the
Church when a person dies, they did not do this and they have no
records of deaths at the Church.
