Searching for info on HUGH ROBINSON. Death record shows he was born abt. 1859 in Scott county and died July 27,1908, age 49years, in Elk Valley, Tn. for some reason the death was not recorded until July 10, 1909, almost a year later. no other info on death record. I have 1900 Scott co, Tn. census record showing HUGH ROBERSON with wife NANCY and son CHARLEY G. (actually my grandfather CHARLES EUGENE ROBINSON) born June 1888. it is certain that this is the same person because the census info came from my grandfathers personal effects after he died. family history says that HUGH's wife was MINERVA but i believe she was his second wife. there is no record of NANCY or MINERVA,s Maiden name. Who were HUGH,s parents and what were his wifes(wives) maiden names. I have looked at hundreds of ROBINSON records and trees and cannot find this HUGH ROBINSON. any help?

I am searching for any information on JAMES PANIEL NAPIER Sr. and ZETTIE/y (possibly Zeddie/y) (JACKSON) NAPIER. Birth and death dates unkown. said to have lived in or around Oneida, they had four children named (not in order of birth) JAMES PANIEL NAPIER Jr. b.27Aug.1915/16 d.22Aug.1997 in Lexington,Ky. ROSCOE NAPIER b./d. unknown , SHERMAN NAPIER b/d. unknown youngest child was a daughter named ALICE NAPIER. ALICE died at around age two from Influenza. ZETTIE (the mother) died within a few days after ALICE, also from influenza. I'm estimating that thier deaths happened between the years of 1918-1921. JAMES Sr. then remarried to a woman named GERTRUDE GOOCH who had two sons from previous marriage. she is said to have been VERY hateful to ZETTIE's children, which resulted in my grandfather, JAMES Jr., running away to Ohio. Because of this, all ties were severed with JAMES Sr. and GERTRUDE. If there's anyone out there who might have any information for me, please help.

I am searching for information about the ancestors and descendents of HIRAM RICHARDSON, who was born in Tenn in 1849. HIRAM married MILLIE DAUGHERTY in 1891, and they lived in Scott county, Tenn. MILLIE gave birth to my Grandfather, GARFIELD RICHARDSON, in Oneida, Tenn on the 6th of Aug 1893. I am sure that HIRAM had another wife before he married MILLIE, for the 1900 census listed the names of three children (JAMES, JULIE & JOHN), who were all born prior the 1891 wedding date of MILLIE and HIRAM. I would appreciate, and would be willing to share any information that I have or that I can obtain about HIRAM, his parents, his first wife, his ancestors, or his descendents. Thank you for your help.
