Looking for the children's names/birthdates of James B. SCOTT. James
B. SCOTT died in Williamson County, TN in 1832. The Inventory of his
estate is on file in Franklin and lists his wife's name as "Polly",
but fails to name his children's names. Also am looking for the
heirs of Thomas Scott, also of Williamson County. His will is on
record in Franklin, but I do not have a copy of it. He apparently
died in the early 1800s, too. Thank you. Larry Scott (Tyler, TX)

I need to verify that Thomas LANCASTER, born between 1809-1819, was
the son of David LANCASTER & Nancy REDFORD, all of Williamson county.
There was 5 duaghters and 3 sons that are known for sure. Is Thomas
possibly the middle name of Samuel LANCASTER ??? Samuel seems to
have disappeared after 1820, which would be consistent with Thomas
moving to Arkansas at some point abt the 1840's. Thomas married Mary
TIGNER/TIGNOR around the same time. Any help or suggestions
Please..!! Anything on the TIGNER/TIGNOR family is needed also
