I'm looking for any notes,facts, or comments concerning the area of my home on Hickory Ridge Rd. in Lebanon. I do know that we have some graves that belong to the Wynne family who I'm assuming owned the land prior to, or sold it to Andrew JACKSON. Andrew Jackson gave or sold this land to the folks who sold it to my Grandfather, Troy DEDMAN. I'd like, as well to find out who those "folks" were as well. The WYNNE family must have been there a very long time as the oldest grave I can find is Colonel John WYNNE who, according to his dates, must have served during the American Revolution. Bottom line is (1) I'm looking to try and preserve this land from expansion (152 acres) and (2) attempt to get a grant form the Historical Society to aid in renovating the home place, house, to take my family back to Tn and live in. I'm currently in the Marine Corps in North Carolina. Is it possible to do these things?? Thank you for hearing this out. Very Sincerely,

I am seeking information on SAMUEL ALLEN PATTON b. 1823 and his wife ELIZABETH EVELINE MARTIN, b. 1828 and d. 1882. I believe that Elizabeth is buried in the Bass Cemetery in Wilson County. I am told that this is a small family cemetery and can anyone tell me where in Wilson county it is located? My limited information is that they came to Putnam County, TN from Carter County, TN in about 1864. He was listed as a wagon maker in 1850. Samuel Allen Patton may have died before 1870 since I am not able to locate him on the census index. I do find many Pattons in Wilson County in 1870, but don't have enough information to know if any of these are related to Samuel Allen Patton. Elizabeth Patton may have been living in Wilson County with one of her sons at the time of her death in 1882. The names of their sons were Samuel Turner Patton b. 1850, William Melborn Patton b. 1854, James Wesley Patton b. 1856, Donald Lafayette Patton b. 1860, John Morgan Patton b. 1863 or 1865 and Robert Lee Patton b. 1866.
