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.

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
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.
