I am interested in locating the descendentants of Nicholas Tate Perkins. My family recently acquired a portrait of Susannah Currey Perkins (d.1837) wife of James Madison Perkins (1806-1837) son of Nicholas Tate Perkins. According to family tradition our portrait is a copy of the original but no one knows where the original is. Our copy descended from her parents, through their youngest child who was three years old when her older sister died at age 22. I am in hopes the original is with a portrait of her husband that might have come down through his family. It is believed that all the young couple's children died before them and therefore there were no desendents. I am just interested in knowing who has the original portrait. E-mail SerchinKin@aol.com

Judy Falls Sat, 08 Nov 1997 17:11:40 A couple of years ago, a group of students and I did a local history project. H. S. Bennett intrigued me. He simply vanished after the Civil War, and I was never able to locate him. Recently the National Archives sent me his military records, and a biographical sketch. Because he was involved in a case that we were investigating, I would like to know if there are any of his personal papers that are in the area? Is there any of the Bennett family still living in the area that might have knowledge of Bennett? Is there a Bennett family historian that could help me track the children that stayed in Texas? I would appreciate any help that anyone could provide. Thank you. Judy Falls. Summary of information from National Archives is provided. Hendley Stone Bennett, was a Congressman from Mississippi, but was born near Franklin, Williamson County, Tenn., April 7, l807. He attended the public schools in West Point, Mississippi, studied law, practiced law in Miss., became a circuit court judge l846-1854 and was elected as a Congressman to the Thirty-fourth Congress. He came to Texas in l856, lived near Ben Franklin, Texas, Lamar County, practiced law, served in Company G, Thirty-second Regiment, Texas Cavalry, from 1861-1862. In l886 he returned to Williamson County and continued the practice of his profession. He died in Franklin, Tenn on 12/15/1891 and is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery. In 1860, he was listed as one of the wealthiest men in the state, and was married ot Mariah. The children are listed as Sophia (19), Louisa (16), H. C. (14 m), Mitt(? 12,f.), E. G. (9 m) and J. M.(7f).

Dianne Hood Sat, 08 Nov 1997 16:45:11 Hello - I am writing to see if anyone knows of any information regarding the Overstreet family. I am descend from the Davis B. Overstreet who married Parmelia Curtis in Williamson Co., 12/24/1854. "Davis" is variously recorded as having been born in TN or VA, and his first name is given in a variety of ways but always with supporting information which shows it is the same man. I have not been able to find anything about Parmelia Curtis' birth or parents. I was told that the Overstreets in my family were recent (around 1900) German immigrants, and that the Curtises were French. I have learned that Overstreet is not a German name, not is Curtis French, and they were both here well before 1900! This and other things have led me to the idea that they are perhaps Native American. When I shared this idea with a friend of mine of 20-years, she remembered my mother once telling her that there was Native American blood in her family. So now I am trying to find out what the real story is. I can't ask my mother as she died in 1989, before I got this far in my research. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, Dianne Hood. Email: MeganDiana@aol.com
