ROBERTSON

I am searching for a photograph of James Wesley Robertson 1838-1906. I will pay $100 to the first person who can: 1)produce a photograph of him 2)provide credible evidence that it is him and explain the photograph's historical path through time 3)provide me with a good quality copy. Only serious inquiries should be made. I have several identifying features upon which to base my judgment of a photograph of him. James Wesley Robertson was born in 1838, in Sumner County, Tennessee, the son of Nathaniel Robertson 1808-1893 and Nancy Naylor (Padgett) Robertson 1819-1872. He may have been married to Malissa C. Briggance in 1858. Ten years later, he was married to Mary Evaline Anthony in 1868. He served as Second Lieutenant in Company K of the 2nd Tennessee Infantry 1861-1865. He was severely wounded in the Battle of Shiloh, losing one of his eyes from a bayonet. He also received shrapnel in his scalp and shoulder at the Battle of Murfreesboro (Stones River). James and Mary had the following children:

SMITH, FAKES

I'm searching for the parents/family of Bert T SMITH, b. 1835 in Lebanon. Bert married Sarah Elizabeth "Betty" FAKES, on March 6, 1866 in Wilson County. Betty had a sister named Mary M FAKES, who married Josephus H SMITH on September 27, 1866. I suspect that JH Smith is a brother or cousin of Bert Smith. Bert's marriage record shows his name to be Bertrand SMITH and on census records he shows up as Burtram, BT, and a host of similar names. On the 1850 census, he was in the household (as a farm laborer) of James HATCHER and wife Lucy A (her maiden name was ELLIS). In 1860, he is in the household of David YOUNG and his wife, Elizabeth. In 1870, Bert finally has his own household and is listed as B.T. In 1880, he is listed as Burtran T and is on the 1891 Voter's List as Burt. Please contact me if you suspect a connection. Thanks

We do not know what regiment this unit was attached to nor who their commanding officers were. We hope to find this out so we can finally identify the flag for the museum. We are sure this is a Tennessee company as the flag was captured in a store in Nashville by the Federals (where the flag was made most likely).

Margaret was living in Davidson county at the time of her death in 1901. city directory showing her as a widow. Also understand she tried to draw pension for Nathan (killed in civil war?)

GREEN, DENNIS

I'm still looking for proof of when and where my gggrandfather died. Family notes say William died near Nashville during the Civil War. I can find him, wife Susannah (Dennis), and son Isaac in the 1860 Wilson County Census, and can find Susannah, Isaac and his wife Florence (Lillard) in the 1880 Polk County Census. Can find no one anywhere in the 1870 census. I would appreciate any help in clearing this up. Some online records say he married a Mary Sherrill about 1864. Was there a divorce? I have proof that Isaac Green, B 1796, is his father and Isaac Green, B 1857, was his son, but can find no records about William.

WILSON, DONALDSON, THOMPSON, CLOYD, EATHERLY, ROBERTSON, BANE

I am researching Andrew WILSON (ca. 1750-1820) who migrated from Guilford Co. NC to Wilson Co TN ca. 1799 & settled in the western part of Wilson Co., TN. His wife was the daughter of John ROBERTSON of Orange Co, NC. Andrew Wilson's children & grandchildern intermarried with the CLOYD, DONALDSON, SMITH, BANE and THOMPSON families. My line runs through Thomas Rayburn WILSON (1844-1901) back to John R. WILSON & Mary DONALDSON of Mt. Juliet, thence to Andrew WILSON. I have info that indicates Andrew WILSON was a Revolutionary War Vet who participated in the Battle of Guilford Court House (1781). Will trade info with any interested party
