Carl Barger Sun Aug 16 17:50:18 1998
Hello: My name is CARL BARGER. I am researching my Gr-Gr-Grandfather, ALLEN BARGER and his wife NANCY BULLOCK. I would like to know if NANCY BULLOCK may have come from your county. I think she may have married ALLEN BARGER sometime around 1830-35. ALLEN lived in BLEDSOE Co. during the 1837-39 years. He and NANCY had two children that were listed in the 1840 federal census for Ripley Co. Mo. Both children gave that they were born in Tn. I would like any information on either ALLEN or NANCY. Also, on JOHN BARGER and POINTER BARGER who also were in Bledsoe Co. in the 1840 federal census. I also think that NANCY's father may have been JOSEPH BULLOCK. Please check your records and respond should you find a connection. Carl Barger, Superintendent of the Warren Public Schools, Warren, Arkansas.

John C. Carter Sat Jul 11 15:56:24 1998
Seeking any info on ANDREW LEWALLEN, b. ca. 1829, TN. He & wife ELIZABETH are in 1850 Scott Co, TN census. Known children are EWEL (b. ca. 1848) & REDIN (b. 1849), also possibly JASPER, ANDREW, & NITA, & perhaps others. I'm told that in the 1850 TN census, ANDREW and ELIZABETH were enumerated "next door" to Sheriff JOHN LEWALLEN. Perhaps this is a clue, but Sheriff JOHN's brother ANDREW was ANDREW "L," b. ca. 1793, & therefore not my ANDREW. This ANDREW "L" also had a son ANDREW RUSSEL LEWALLEN, but he was b. 28 Oct 1824, (& m. PERLISCIA ANNE "Phebe" DAVIS) & was therefore also not my ANDREW.

Researching MOSES or MOSE S. THOMAS born 1869 in Tennessee. Parents may have been CALVIN and FANNIE THOMAS. Found a CALVIN and FANNIE in Scott Co (1870 Census) with child named MOSES. Age indicated is 4 years old, not 1 or 2. The 1880 census shows a different CALVIN THOMAS family. MOSE does not show up again until 1890 when he married MARY CAMPBELL in Arkansas. Any ideas?
