CALHOUN 

Looking for information on Col. William Calhoun, my gggGrandfather and his family who lived in Tipton County near the Hatchie River at a place called Hurricane Hill around 1825. Williamís brothers were John and George B., and I believe their father was Adam Calhoun. William was married to Elizabeth Hungerford Smith, daughter of James Norman Smith, who had a store in that area selling dry goods and groceries. The store was J.N. Smith & Co. in partnership with Armstead Morehead and Wm. Morehead. James Norman Smith moved to Texas around 1840 as well as William Calhoun & family. They settled in DeWitt County, the boundaries of which were surveyed by James Norman Smith. Any information on the Calhoun family in Tipton County or their prior history would be greatly appreciated.

John Moore Sat, 13 Dec 1997 23:55:58 -0600 I am tracing the genealogy of my family:
Great Grandfather: Moore, Robert Walker
DOB: 9 Jul 1857 (Mudville, TN)... So I'm told
DOD: 31 Dec 1918 (Tipton, TN) Bethel Cemetary, Tipton, TN
Married to Mary Panthea Morrissette
DOB: 14 Jan 1861 (Dickson County, TN)
DOD: 17 Nov 1952 (Tipton, TN) Bethel Cemetary, Tipton, TN
Married 13 Dec 1876 at Covington, TN
I'm looking for any information pertaining to Robert Walker Moore's Father. My research leads my to believe that his name was RUSSELL MOORE who married a MARY WALKER on 21 Mar 1854 per recorded data from Tipton County Records. That all I know other than he may have immigrated to the US from Ireland (?). Any records or knowledge about Russell Moore would be greatly appreciated.

MCFARLAND: Searching for information on this family. In 1850 Tipton Co census, Clarinda (mother), age 58, Fletcher (Rueben Fletcher) age 20, and Thomas D. McFarland, age 22, were living in the household of JOHN KNOX, and wife, JENNETTA, age 29, who was a sister to the above MCFARLANDS.
Other probable siblings were MARY A. MCFARLAND, who married CHARLES W. FALLON in 1848 in Tipton, and REBECCA MCFARLAND, who married JAMES D. WESSON in 1844 in Tipton Co.
By 1860, REUBEN FLETCHER MCFARLAND and THOMAS D. MCFARLAND, were in Pulaski Co AR. Living with REUBEN at that time was a CALVIN MCFARLAND, born abt 1773 NC, who is a good candidate to be the FATHER. Cannot find CALVIN MCFARLAND listed anywhere in the 1850 census.
RUEBEN FLETCHER MCFARLAND married HELEN GEHAN in 1850 in Tipton Co, and his brother, THOMAS D. MCFARLAND married MARY J. BASS in 1850 in Tipton. MARY BASS was the daughter of JAMES and DELILA BASS of Tipton Co.
RUEBEN MCFARLAND stayed in Arkansas, but THOMAS D. MCFARLAND was back in Tipton Co in the 1870 census. He died there in 1876, and is buried in Bethuel Cemetery.
Would like any information on these families.
Thanks.

STEWART, STEVONS, POLLARD, NEAL, WRIGHT. Desperately need info on family of William STEWART who married Margaret Judith Caroline STEVONS. Her father was supposed to have come here with Lafayette from France to fight the British. Their two places of residence were Davidson Co. & Tipton Co. William died before Civil War & Margaret died shortly after. Their children were believed to have been born in Davidson Co. & probably all married there. The daughters ran a fashionable seamstress & milinary shop in Nashville. The children would have been born ca 1800-1810 & all settled in Johnson & Pope Co's, AR except for one. Children: Dicie Ann Stewart m. Major Alfred POLLARD; Joseph A. Stewart; Elizabeth (Betsy) Stewart m. Samuel NEAL; Mildred Stewart m. Silas WRIGHT; James Stewart remained with parents probably in Davidson Co., TN. Too many William Stewart's to get any war records. I'm really stuck. noramae@aol.com

Searching for information on my great great grandfather, Michael GILLEN,(Gilen, Gillan, etc.) dob: Jan. 29, 1807 in TN. He is listed in the 1830 and 1832 Tipton Co.,TN Census with a wife and three children.
He received a league of land that was obtained through Green DeWitt's empresario contract with the Mexican authorities of the State of Coahuila and Texas. The title is dated June 22, 1831. He states that he is married and has six children.
In 1840 he is in Calcasieu Parish, LA. with a new family. He had married Martha Tarkington on March 4, 1837 in LA.
My question is what happened to his first family? What was the name of his first wife?
Is anyone doing research on this family? Would appreciate any assistance.

WISEMAN, VANVICKLE: Am searching for my family line. Have found my grandfather on the 1910 and 1920 Tipton Co. Tn. census, as William and Wilie WISEMAN, b. abt 1882 Tn. I am supposing his name was William Wilie or Wylie. Have records that state his parents were Ransom and Mary Ann ______?. William and Ransom was suppose to have been born in Tipton Co. Can not find any records of Ransom, nor Willima in the 1900 census. Was hoping to find him at home with parents. William's wive was Annie VANVICKLE. b. Dec. 31, 1887, Texas. Her parents Benjamin F. and Mary C.______? Vanvickle, are on the 1910 Tipton Co. census. The first four children including Annie were all born in Texas, the last three were born in Tn. The oldest child born in Tn. shows to be 9. So they must have come to Tennessee in abt. 1901 or so. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

My g-g-grandfather, Daniel R. Whitley (b.1802) settled in Tipton Co, TN about 1830. He came from NC by way of Henry Co, TN. He built Red Bud plantation in the area between Mason & Charleston. He died in 1856. I would like to exchange information with other descendants or other interested parties. He was known as Captain Whitley. Does anyone know about his military history? His first wife was Sarah Wooten (1825-1850); his second wife was Sarah Jett (1852-1856). He also had a brother, Raiford Whitley, who lived in Tipton County during the same time frame.

WILSON Looking for information on Josiah or Joseph Wilson, born abt 1832, died abt 1870 in Mississippi County, AR. Believe he was living in Shelby County in 1830 and Tipton County in 1840. He married Martha Davies, who died Sept 1878 in Memphis of yellow fever. Josiah may have been the son of William L. and Sarah C. Wilson of Tipton County. Their other children were: Cassandra, William H., Alexander B., Alfred, and possibly Dr. Paca Wilson. I am trying to verify this relationship or find other alternatives. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for information on the families of Nancy Emaline HARRISON and Samuel Darby SIMONS, who were married in Tipton County in July 1845. They were in Texas by March 1847 when their daughter Lucy Ann was born. Nancy died c1849, and Sam went to the Gold Rush, leaving Lucy with sisters named Margaret and Lydia HOOD at the Hood Hotel in Independence, TX. Lydia and Margaret were daughters of Robert HOOD and Elizabeth MCRAVEN of NC, who supposedly moved to Tennessee c1830. Would like to find a connection between the HOOD family and either the HARRISON or SIMONS family.

I have a John Tipton "Tip" CARR b: 07 May 1830 in TN d: 03 Aug1906 in Overton Co., TN m: Nancy Dillon. I can't find any info on his parents or siblings. I am posting this on the off chance that just maybe the Tipton part of his name comes from the Tipton line that the county is named for. Does anyone have any info on this "orphan"?

We know John Drew McCLANAHAN was born 1805 and died 1890, buried atRobinson Cemetery, near Mason. We are uncertain who his father was. The Graceys came from Iredell Co., NC and trace back to Patrick GRACEY who came to America from County Down, Ireland. Who was the first Gracey to come to Tipton County? My grandfather was William Minor Gracey and is buried at Munford Cemetery in Coving ton. I know James Barnett Gracey was born 6 June 1843, married Margaret Gilliam Calhoun Gracey. He is buried at Mt. Carmel Presby. Cemetery.
