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.

James William COLEMAN born 22 September 1888 was a constable in Williamson Co. I have a picture of him and 5 other men standing in front of what is said to have been the biggest still found and broken up in Williamson Co. Would love to know the names of the other men. One is probably Sam Locke. Would also love to know when this took place and have a copy of the article that was probably published in the paper.

I'm having a really difficult time finding information on a Thomas and Margaret WILSON who died 1821 and 1828 in Williamson Co. TN. I have ordered the film for Will Bk.4 three times, but it has always been in use since July, and apparently the film cannot be purchased. Does anyone know anything about this Thomas and Margaret Wilson? My calculations from the census indicate Thomas and Margaret Wilson had nine children, and he was born before 1775. Three of their youngest children were: Samuel Wilson, Matilda Wilson and Thomas Wilson. Their guardian was Richard A. Hancock, appointed in January 1831. I have many records for the WILSON families in Williamson County, TN on my website, but need this Thomas & Margaret. WILSONS in WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TN URL: http://members.aol.com/joypjh/

My husband's grandfather, James "Jim" William Coleman, was born 22 September 1888 and died at home 21 October 1949. Jim was a constable and farmer during the 1920's. While he was a constable he was a member of a force that found and broke up the largest still ever found in Williamson Co. An article with a picture accompaning it was published in the local paper. We have a copy of that picture with the still, Jim and 5 other men. Would love to know the names of the other men, when this happened and what paper it was published in.

I am researching the CLARK family of Williamson County, Tennessee. I located them in the 1880 census in the 20th district. The head of household is T.J. CLARK and his wife was Annie A. Their children were; Elizabeth born 1865 Thomas D. born 1867 James B. born 1869 Mary F. born 1871 Walter born 1874 Edward born 1878 James Benjamin is the one I am tracing. He married and had 5 sons in the Nashville, Tenn. area. He later met and Married Mary Mueller of Gasconade County, Missouri and was a ranch foreman for the Rankin Brothers of Tarkio, Missouri (Atchison County). They had 3 sons; John B. born 12-1918 Robert L. born circa 1921 William E. born 1-1923 James B. CLARK supposedly had an auto accident and died sometime in the 1940's. We know not when or where. We do not know where he is buried. My father-in-law (William E. CLARK) has never seen his father, and is now in his 70's and would like to see a picture of him, and maybe even know where he is buried.
