ESPY, COLEMAN, HAYES, HIPP

I have several photos from Rutherford County of students at Kittrell School and would be happy to email to anyone who wants them. Also, found a wonderful portrait of the Espy family. It belonged to my mother-in-law, Grace COLEMAN White, and the note on the photo says "Mother's 1st cousin, the ESPY Family at Wartrace. The names on the photo are: Cousin Fate, Cousin Sis and (their children, I think) Ruth, Vernon, Ethel, Luther, Maud (says she is blind), and a girl named Lester (?). Grace's mother was Fanny HAYES who married William Rufus COLEMAN Fanny's parents were Elias HAYES and Martha HIPP HAYES. The photo does not say whether the cousin is on Elias' side on or on Martha's. Fanny was born in Rutherford County in 1871. I would love to find the family and get the photo to them. Can anyone help me?

LEONARD

I'm looking for as much information as possible on the Leonard family of the Leonard Community in Macon County, TN. My father's family is originally from the area, and would love to hear from any current family members who live there. The earliest information I have is on a John Leonard born about 1795 in South Carolina (died 1870); married to Mary Elizabeth Leonard. I'd love any information anyone has that goes further back than this. My grandfather was Carl Leonard, born June 1905. He was married to Maudie Mai Davis Leonard, born Dec. 1910. They lived most of their lives in Murfreesboro (Rutherford County), Tenn., but did stay in touch with the "home folks" as much as they could. They had 5 children -- Willa Dean (died as an infant); Eugene, Louise, Evelyn and Floyd. Floyd is my father. Would also love to know if any of the Leonards out there have musical abilities. Just about all of us here play an instrument or sing. It must be a family trait!

CHURCH,THOMPSON

Franklin CHURCH and Caroline THOMPSON m. in Cannon Co., TN, in 1848. Listed in the Rutherford Co., TN, U.S. Census of 1850 were Benjamin F. CHURCH (22), his wife Mary C. (19), and their son John M. (2/12). My great grandfather, John Marion Church, was born "up around Nashville" at some point between 1845 and 1853 [different records give different age information]. John's death certificate lists his father as Frank CHURCH and his mother's maiden name as [no given name recorded] THOMPSON. I have reason to believe that both the couples listed above (record of marriage in Cannon Co., TN, and census record in Rutherford Co., TN) are the same people and are John CHURCH's parents. Can anyone help me prove or disprove my belief?

My DOUGLAS family lived in Beech Grove, TN. The county line went through the center of my gggrandfather's house (Bryant Henderson DOUGLAS(BH) b May 1847 in Beech Grove. Douglas Ridge?? in the corner of Bedford, Cannon, Coffee and Rutherford Counties. Apparently all the lines met there. Found parts of the family on the census in each county even though they stayed in the same house. Most of my searching has been on line. B. Henderson's father was Bryant DOUGLAS, b abt 1811 in TN. His father was Thomas DOUGLAS b. 1780 in Virginia. He married Edith THOMPSON b 1779, on February 29, 1804 in Johnston, North Carolina according to the IGI. In studying last night, my deductiion was Thomas and Edith DOUGLAS may be connected to Theophilus THOMPSON of Bedford County, TN. My belief is Thomas and Edith may have come to TN earlier from NC. Today, I uploaded my Douglas information to my web page if you would like to check it. The URL is http://home.att.net/~vancepat/ Any suggestions?

MARTIN, SPENCER

I am searching Richard SPENCER who was the son of Joseph SPENCER and ANNY ROWTON. md in Charlotte co Va. Joseph SPENCER lived in Surry co N.C. but sold out there and went to Rutherford co Tenn. Joseph SPENCER had died in Tenn leaving Richard SPENCER as an orphan and only heir. When Joseph Spencers father died intestate in Lawrence co Ky c 1830. Richard SPENCER of Rutherford co Tenn claimed his share of the estate as only heir of Joseph SPENCER. To do this he had to apply through the Rutherford co Tenn court and an Alfred W.MARTIN signed a statement that he had known Richard SPENCER for many years and certified that he was the legitimate heir. I believe Alfred W. MARTIN was the brother of Sarah MARTIN md to James SPENCER of Surry co. N.C. both MARTINS children of OBADIAH MARTIN of Revol. James SPENCER brother of Joseph SPENCER AND both sons of John SPENCER and unknown FLETCHER. Hope this helps someone will trade information and appreciate any leads that pertain to Richard SPENCER alive 1850 o
