It has come to our attention that some folks, when answering a query, have been asking to be paid for research. We do recognize that it would be fair to be asked to be reimbursed for postage and photocopy costs.

My GGGParents were John Wesley Taylor and Letitia Givens of Williamson County, TN. m. 1837. JW's parentage has yet to be determined(though searches have continued for over 25 years.) However, it has recently been strongly suggested that he was descended from James P. Taylor of Carter County. JW was born in 1819. If anyone can add to this query, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I am looking for info about the STEELE family who lived in Williamson Co. about 1800-20. There probably were 4 sons: James, Moses, James, & William plus maybe Mary and Martha. They probably migrated to southern Mississippi (Vicksburg & Marion County) in late 1820's. One of the sons (who a stroke about 1820) may be the father of Rev. Elijah STEELE, (b. 1814 in Williamson) a well-loved Methodist Episcopal minister in southern Mississippi until his death in New Orleans (1841). Did one of the four brothers have a daughter Minerva, born in Mississippi about 1818? This has been a brick wall for a dozen or more years. Thanks for any guidance or assistance. Ruth

I am trying to find any kind of information on Ellen HOLT who married S. J. A. WELLS in Dickson County on December 24, 1859 and Martha Elizabeth HOLT who married Aaron JAMES about 1850. No marriage record can be found for HOLT & JAMES. They resided in Dickson Co. from 1850 until their deaths. I have found nothing on HOLT & WELLS other than their marriage. I believe these two to be sisters, the daughters of William N. Holt and Martha RIDLEY from Hickman Co. William and Martha married in Williamson Co. in 1821. Anything is greatly appreciated.
