The TNGenWeb volunteers are dedicated to providing this FREE online Internet genealogical Web Site for the general public. It is NOT the policy of TNGenWeb to charge you.

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. However, charging research fees for information pertaining to the original query would be questionable at best.

I am looking for the birth of James J. Morgan born on July 7, 1848 in North Columbia, TX (county seat of Maury). I am not sure of who his father or mother is. I have traced a William B. Morgan and Louisa Martha Huggans in the 1850 census in Giles Co-TN and believe he is either their son or relative or adopted. At the library, I found the information of birth referring it to Tree #2914. It directed me to a family, Calvin Cogswell Morgan (KY). I would like to obtain a proof of birth that might name his parents & where they are from. Is there anyone or place that I can get this information. Thank you for your help.

Desire names, year of birth, etc. of all 18 children of John Gant who died sometime after 1850 when he was listed in the census of Williamson Co., TN for that year. John had Jeremiah, b. ca 1787 in Orange Co., NC and probably Joel, b. 1789 in Orange Co., NC (Joel married Sarah Phillips and they were in the 1820 census of Williamson Co., TN but not found in any later record)by his first wife before migrating to Canada with his second wife, Nancy Judge and his brother Thomas (both adopted the surname of Ghent in Canada). Thomas remained in Canada and raised a large family. John apparently had 6 more children in Canada (including Camilla. ca. 1792) but returned to Orange Co., NC after the death of his wife. In 1806, John married Esther Lovens with whom he had 10 children whose names and vitals I have (from his family bible). All of this information and much more on the descendants of John Gant (1713-1783) of Colonial VA and NC in a book about him published earlier this year. Any help will be appreciated
