Ezekiel HARRELSON m. Eve or Eva CIRCLES on Sept. 8, 1807. The HARRELSONS were in Williamson and Maury Counties at this time. Ezekiel was born Nov.4, 1786. Ezekiel HARRELSON was one of the signers of petition to form MAURY CO. presented to the legislature in August, 1807, so based on this date and the marriage date, believe marriage occurred in Williamson Co. Is anyone else researching the CIRCLES line or able to find/confirm this marriage date?

Looking for information on my grandmother's family. She was born RACHEL DRENNAN TAYLOR on 9/2/1900 in Franklin, TN. Her parents were JOHN M. TAYLOR AND MARY LOUISE SHUMATE. I believe JOHN TAYLOR was the son of STEPHEN ALLEN TAYLOR (b. 2/15/1829 in Georgia d. 4/15/1897) and RACHEL DRENNAN MILLER(b. 1836). STEPHEN A. TAYLOR was minister of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church for 40 years. Supposedly owned Independence Farm. . Notes show STEPHEN was the son of WILLIAM TAYLOR AND MALINDA NUNN of Georgia. I believe WILLIAM died abt. 1835 and MALINDA died abt. 1853. My notes show RACHEL DRENNAN MILLER was the daughter of JOHN W. MILLER (according to 1850 census, he was constable) and CHRISTIANA BELINA MUELLER. I have a note that says Christiana's family drowned in a boat coming from Amsterdam and she was raised by Captain Henry Dickson in New Orleans. Notes that state JOHN W. MILLER built a house in Franklin, TN on the corner of Third Ave. and Margin St. in 1866. Would like to share information.

Williamson County marriage records show the marriage of Polly (Mary) KENNEY (widow of James Keny) and George WADE on 9 Sept 1817. Other Williamson Co. marrages include Eliza Kenny and Benjamin R.

KENNY and Elizabeth OLDHAM 4 Sept. 1838. I have evidence that Eliza and William C. were siblings, and that both moved to Louisiana. Were Eliza, Peggy (Margaret?), Jane, John and William C. all the children of James and Mary KENNY? Who were the children of Mary and George WADE? The 1840 census shows several children under 10.
