I'm seeking information on Obediah Driskill, b. Virginia 3-19-1783, married Nancy Young abt. 1802, moved to Tennessee shortly thereafter. The only records we have on Obediah in Tennessee are for his Service record, War of 1812 from Bedford Co., Tax rolls of Bedford Co. (1812), and the birth of his son, Legross Washington Driskill 10-2-1816. I believe that he moved to Louisiana about 1818. I'm also seeking information on the Turney family, from Virginia through Tennessee (from abt. 1800-1860). Names include Issac, Samuel, Daniel, and Harold Daniel (b. 1829 in Cannon Co.). Ed Driskill

STATEN d. 1835 in Williamson County, TN Wife's name is Sarah HOLLAND who remarried John ADKISSON on July 26, 1836. Published marriage records of Williamson County indicate that one Sally Staten married John Atkinson, Jr. on July 26, 1836. Sally of course, is a nickname for Sarah and Adkisson is often mistaken for Atkinson by researchers when viewing and compiling old records. Sarah and Mr. Staten are my gggrandparents and my research has come to a dead end at this point. I will be so greatful if someone there in Williamson County could locate any information at all that would perhaps give me his christian name, parentage or what-have-you. Many thanks for your kind consideration.
