Hi I am researching FORD,BRADBERRY,O'NEAL of Montgomery county my gr gr grandfather Josiah Henry Ford was born in Montgomery County Jan. 3, 1839. We have some of his brothers and sisters but understand there were many. We believe his mother's first name may have been Nancy. Some of the Ford's that lived in the Port Royal area are of this line. We believe his father was either James or Henry Ford, or his grandfather was James or Henry anyway one was one and the other was the other. Hope this did not confuse anyone. The Fords entermarried quite a bit. The Bradberry's were also in the area. I have names if anyone needs them. Would like to know if there are any Fords buried in any of the Cemetery's there are none in the Cemetery's listed on the Web page.The O'Neal's also married into the Ford line.

I am looking for the location of the graves of Stephen Turner Rives d. 1840 and his wife Sophia. They were originally interned in a family cemetery outside of Clarksville TN. I now know it was located on the Fort Campbell Reserve. However, I do not know if it is still on Ft. Campbell or was relocated. In 1929 Childs said, “Stephen Rives and his wife were buried on the Tillottson plantation, about fifteen miles from Clarksville, Tennessee, near Old Providence, the property now being known as ‘Carneal.’” A recent source said they might have been moved to the Rogers cemetery. A memorial that stands in the Rosedale Cemetery, Pembroke KY is “In memory of the members of the Rives Family originally interred in the family cemetery on Fort Campbell Reservation.” It lists the names of several Rives including Stephen's eldest son Henry Archer Rives d. 1892, but does not list Stephen or Sophia. Can anyone help me locate these graves?

Did the first marriage end in desertion,divorce, or her death?

Were there two Archibald ANDERSONS??

I am interested in any info on the iron furnaces of southwest Montgomery County that operated from about 1805 to the 1860's. In particular the Yellow Creek, Sailor's Rest and Montgomery furnaces. I am curious to find out if there are any records showing employees of these furnaces. In particular any GARRISON that shows up on any employee list. Thank you.

W.P. ANDERSON paid taxes for James WATSON in Montgomery County, Tennessee, in 1800. Immediately across the state line, in Todd County KY, a John WATSON's tombstone states that he was "Born Tennesse, February 15, 1797." This John Watson married a Martha ANDERSON about 1824 and had a brother or father named James WATSON. Does anyone have any information about the WATSONs and ANDERSONs of Montgomery County, Tennessee, or the WATSON/ANDERSON connection? I have much information to share on their descendants.

I am looking for information on a William Harvey of Montgomery County Tennessee. A William Harvey is listed in the 1850 Census of Montgomery County Tennessee as age 49, along with the following members of his family. Sarah Age 47, Blount Age 20, Rebecca Age 18, Julia Ann Age 12, Mary A. Age 10, Sarah Age 8, Both parents were born in Tennessee. Sarah Harvey is listed as the head of her household in the 1860 Census. The following is from the 1860 Census of Montgomery County TN. Sarah Age 55, Blunt Age 29, Julia Age 25, Mary Age 23, Sarah Age 22. I believe that William Harvey must have died before the 1860 census was taken I believe that this William Harvey is from Monroe and Blount County Tennessee (hence the name of his son Blount, or Blunt. The census taker must have relied on the phonetic spelling of the name, because Blount is pronounced blunt). In 1829 there was a William Harvey who lived on the Tennessee River in Blount County TN. Any information on this family would be appreciated. Matthew M. Webb

Looking for my ggg grandmother Elizabeth. We are unsure of her maiden name spelling. Father may have been William OR Robert BRYANT. Mother may have been a CALHOUN. Elizabeth was born around 1816, and married Wilson Williamson Marlow around 1834-36. They had four children: Achsa born in Montgomery(1836), James Robert (1838), Pleasant (1841) and the birth of her last child. I am a descendent of Bethel. Bethel is a strange name. I once saw a William Bethel MARLOW and wondered if my gg grandfather was named after a this person. We believe that she and Wilson lived in Tennesse when first married and then moved to St. Claire Missouri. She died somewhere in Missouri,near St. Claire I would think. Does anyone have information on this family. I would love to hear from you. I have some information to share. Thank you, Vicki Walberg Vacaville, CA.
