In your research of queries, don't forget to check out the queries that were posted during the previous months. Links to them are at the bottom of this query page. Queries start with January 1999.

Note: Query pages within the TNGenWeb project are for those researchers requesting or offering assistance in tracing their lineage. 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.

If anyone is asked to pay for any information, other than to cover the cost of postage and copying, please let the State Coordinator know.

My father was born in Franklin in 1898. When I was about 8 years old (about 50 years ago) he took us by to see the house he was born in. I haven't see it in 50 years and would like to come back and see it. Got any suggestions? It was on the corner of an interscetion. It had an overhang over a front porch. It was rather small, 1-story frame house. Any assistance will be appreciated. His parents were Skelton D. HENRY and Mary CRAIG Henry. JIM

I'm searching for John REED, who married Hannah SHIPMAN in Warren County KY in 1797, and David RIGGS, who married Nancy REED in Warren County KY in 1802. Both families were in Jackson County AL by 1822, but their children were born in TN between 1802 and 1822. The 1815 Williamson County tax list contains the names John REED and David RIGGS. Were they the same men who migrated from Warren County KY to Jackson County AL? Is there any way to determine from the tax list whether they were neighbors? Do any Williamson County researchers know who either of these men on the 1815 tax list were? Can anyone suggest other sources for information about these men in Williamson County? Any help sincerely appreciated! Thanks.

CHITTY, WARE. The courthouse at Columbia, TN. County seat of Maury County has the original marriage bond of BENJAMIN CHITTY(3) and NANCY WARE, dated 12 July 1814. Bondsman: George Cockburn. However, I believe them to have family in Maurry county before 1807 which would make it Williamson county. NANCY WARE, I believe, lived near the PERRY's and the MOKES in the Water Valley of the Duck River in Maury County. Mrs. Charles C. Alexander, 903 Myers Ave. Columbia, Tenn. 38401, who did some searching for my husband's aunt: JAN SEARL - KOLSH (who is 90 years old as of this year 1999), says the Maury County. Tenn. tax list gives BENJAMIN CHITTY for the years 1811, 1814, & 1816, but not for 1817, so I believe that is when they left Tennessee. In 1818 a PETER WEARE bought a lot from HENRY WADE, Vol.1, Book W. page 370. Whether he as kin of our NANCY WARE I do not know. JAN SEARL - KOLSH'S mother CLARA HOPE PERRY LOCKIE told her that NANCY WARE (JANICE SEARL - KOLSH's grandmother) was a full -- blooded Cheroke
