I am trying to find out the name of the husband and further information about SARAH BLANKENBECKLER from Campbell Co., TN who married a man from Scott Co. between 1900-1910. She had at least one child named RUBY (surname unknown). SARAH's mother died young, and she left home fairly young. Without her husband's name I can do no further research, not even in the census. If anyone who knows ANYTHING about this family, I would really appreciate hearing from you. I'd like to make contact with living descendants, if possible. I can exchange information on her background.

I am researching ALLEN J. HENSLEY who married LAURA GRAHAM. I believe that they originally came from Scott County. ALLEN J. HENSLEY (born June 2, 1880 / died Apr 20, 1942) was the son of FLOYD and JULIE KATHERYNE HENSLEY. There was at least 8 other children in this family. 3 sons: RICHARD HENSLEY; GEORGE HENSLEY; and LYNEL HENSLEY. 5 daughters: PRUDIE HENSLEY; CORIDA HENSLEY; LAURA HENSLEY; VILACE HENSLEY and GIRTA HENSLEY. ALLEN J. HENSLEY married LAURA GRAHAM (born June 17, 1875/80) daughter of WILLIAM and BETTIE GRAHAM. WILLIAM and BETTIE had at least 3 other children: JOE GRAHAM; MOSSIE GRAHAM and LIDA GRAHAM. ALLEN J. and LAURA moved to Campbell County after their marriage and are buried at Peabody Cemetery on Peabody Mountain. I believe that the HENSLEY and GRAHAM families came from the lower end of Scott County near Anderson County. The men were believed to be coal miners. Any help would be great.
