October 2002 Queries


My great-great grandparents (William Ivy/Sallie Beard). They got married in Williamson County on 1-22-1884. Their names show up on my Great Grandmother Annie Ivy/Tomlin death certificate. Annie was born in March of 1890 in Williamson County. I found an Annie on the 1900 census with her father William Ivey-although he was married to Nancy at this time. I do not know what happened to Sallie Beard Ivy. I do not know anything else about her. Additionally, I found a Sallie Beard born in 1860 in Haywood county but can not find any other information on her either. William Ivy (changed to Ivey) was 50% American Indian and Sallie Beard was 100% Indian. We think Sallie might have been Sallie Bear. Please help if you can. I have been researching this for 7 years.

A Gratitude of thanks upfront.

It has been a year since I have posted any queries for my ancestors so I am checking to see if there were any new information out there. Here it goes:

I am looking for more information on Ezekiel P Wall, born 7/6/1841 or 1849. I have his death as in 1884 but this may be incorrect. He married Mary "Frances" Walls. I have precious little information about her. Ezekiel may or may not have been born in Williamson Co. Here is the last information that I received from Dorris Douglas (Williamson Co Library, Geneology): Did you type the death date for Ezekial right or could that be 1904, '14, ' 24 etc., for we found them in the 1900 census in Davidson County as Ezekial P. Wall, wife Frances and sons Clark and Jesse. Living next door was their daughter Ella P. and husband Felix Oden. Ezekial and Frances had been married 32 years which does not match the birth date of Ella P, so she could have been Frances'child by a previous marriage.

Part 2 of Previous Query on my Wall ancestors. Continuing with the last information I have received from Dorris Douglass. Williamson Co Library: Frances, in 1900 was the mother of 7 children, 3 living. The other four are in the 1880 census. No Ed though, but any of the boys Wilburn,Dorse,Henry or John could have had a middle name Ed. The Civil War birth date you gave for Ezekial matches the 1900 (July 1841) and 1880 census (age 39). I also found the Azekle in the 1860 census but the age is eight years off and I just don't believe that is your Ezekial. (I even checked the original on microfilm and it clearly says age 11) If that was the case then he lied about his age to get in the Civil War and continued to live the lie. I found a new development. Ezekial's Civil War pension says he was born in Weakly Co, which fits in with him being the Grandson of Clement who was in Fayette County, directly south.
Again if any other subscriber has more information, I would love to hear from you.
