I am trying to find some information on my grandmother. Her name was VIOLA ILEE SEXTON. She was born on January 1, 1920. I am not sure of her heritage but I would like to somehow find if she was Indian (Apache). She dies on June 2, 1964 in Scott County Hospital. Should have been married to CLYDE SEXTON sometime in 1945.

Looking for JAMES ROSCOE BEATTY. He was born in Tennessee, October 3, 1855. City and County Unknown. In 1884 January 15 he and SARAH CLARKE (real last name MANNING) were issued a marriage certificate. This certificate was never used but, it places him in Scott Co. I was always told he lived with a doctor which said that if he worked on the farm he could stay and go to school. He became a preacher and eventually travelled the Oregon Trail to Washington. He died in Bellingham Washington in 1935. I'm unable to locate him at all in Tennessee. Any help or hints would be appreciated. Census records don't have boarders or hired hands cross reference.

My gggg-grandfather's name, WILLIAM CHAMBERS, is on a bicentennial plaque on the lawn of the Scott Co. Courthouse noting his service as a soldier of the Rev. War. I understand the man who certified WILLIAM's name to be on that plaque, along with several others, has now passed on. Is there anyone currently in Scott Co. who has access to the records that were used to verify those names? I am trying to confirm William's Rev. War army unit. Thank you!
