I am searching for information about my great-grandparents, James B. (Bennett) JACKSON and Sarah Jane CHERRY. Jim JACKSON was b. 10 Aug 1847, in TN, presumably, Overton Co. and d. 08 Dec 1923 in Oregon Co., MO. Sarah Jane CHERRY was b. 10 Sep 1854, in TN, presumably, Overton Co. and d. 23 Feb 1926 in Oregon Co., MO. The Jacksons were members of the Baptist Church. It is probable that their marriage was performed by a Baptist preacher. According to the JACKSON family Bible, Jim (J.B.) and Jane JACKSON married in Clay Co., TN, on 04 Nov 1873. According to the family Bible and obituaries from Oregon Co., MO, William Bennett JACKSON b. 28 Jul 1874, Florence JACKSON b. 20 Jan 1876, Violett JACKSON b. 28 Feb 1879, Muce Dora JACKSON b. 22 Feb 1881, and John JACKSON b. 29 Jan 1884 were all born in Clay Co., TN. This JACKSON family left TN in 1886. They arrived in Oregon Co., MO in 1886 or early 1887. Their son Lee JACKSON was b. 24 Sep 1886 in KY. Remaining children Clyde JACKSON, Mary JACKSON, Alta JACKSON, and Dona JACKSON were b. in MO. To date a search for census information or a marriage record has been fruitless. Any verification that these JACKSONS were in Overton, Jackson, or Clay Co., TN would be greatly appreciated. (It is said that J.B. JACKSON had a sister named Susan (Susie) JACKSON who remained in TN.) Any information related to census, marriage, land deeds would be helpful!

I am looking for EAKLE information. I was told that there were some EAKLE's living in Jackson County Tennessee. I had some information and lost it. So again I am looking to get that information again. I think they were there in the 1840,1850's census. I don't know if their are any EAKLE's still living in Jackson County or not. Thanks Signed Jerry Eakle

CARRIGER FAMILY HISTORY Thu Aug 28 22:18:06 1997

Searching for information on GOTTFRIED (KERCHER) CARRIGER, SR.. A Tennessee Historical Commission plaque "CARRIGER'S LANDING" now stands in the Hunter Community of Carter County documenting the CARRIGER family's mark on early Carter County history. Gottfried and Anna Margaratha Anspach CARRIGER had the following children: Nicholas, Michael, John, Elizabeth, Godfrey, Jr. and Christian. In 1811 Nicholas and Catherine CARRIGER and all of their known children moved to Lincoln County, Tennessee. Many of Nicholas's children later migrated into Greene County, Illinois. Christian and Levicy WARD CARRIGER had fourteen children, all of whom were born in Carter County. In 1842 Christian and Levicy and some of the younger children left Carter County and settled in Independence, Missouri. Nicholas CARRIGER (the son of Christian CARRIGER) became a selfmade historian having documented the events of the CARRIGER family to become the sixth family to "OVERLAND IN 1846". Other surnames connected to the Carriger marriage in Carter County are: William WARD & ANN VANDERPOOL , Teeter NAVE & Rebecca BOWERS , Isaac & Mary LINCOLN , Daniel & Phoebe STOVER, Mary & Molly MORRELL - William or MARY FITZSIMMONS.

The Edwward O'Neal family isnot on Marion Co Tn Census for 1870 so either they moved back to AL or Ga or another Co in TN or someplace else...

Doll/Dolphus Teague died May 1898 in a coal mine in Whitwell/TRACY City, MarionCo., TN.. He lived for several hours and talked with his family. He was survived by a widow and 4 children. I have not been able to find the family together anywhere. I found both Hannah and Doll/Dolphus at age 21 on the 1870 Marion Co Census but I haven't found them for 1880 and no information on the Children of this couple, my great grandparents.

NASH, MISENHEIMER, FOGLEMAN, POTTS, TAYLOR, OWEN, MANN, HILL, OUTLAW, LOCKERMAN All I know about my Tennessee connection for Andrew J. Nash was that he was suppose to have been born there in 1809 according to the census. Can someone help me place him in the correct Tennessee county? My maternal 3rd. great grandfather is Andrew Jackson NASH b. 1809 TN, d. 23 Jun 1854 Carlinville, Macoupin Co., IL, married first Mary Polly MISENHEIMER (daughter of John MISENHEIMER & Mary FOGLEMAN). He married second Mrs. Pacify Tinsey MANN and had son Francis (Frank) Marion Nash). Andrew and Mary had the following children:

  • 1. John M. b. 1832 IL
  • 2. Robert Franklin b. 1835 IL, d. ca. 1901 Terrell, TX, married 29 Sept 1859 in Montgomery Co., IL to Sarah POTTS
  • 3. Andrew J. b. 23 Feb 1840 Macoupin Co., IL, d. 4 Feb 1923 in Cumberland Co., IL, married 14 March 1878 to Sarah TAYLOR

  • Andrew Jackson NASH might have been married before he married Mary MISENHEIMER as there was a Sarah NASH who married 10 Mar 1849 in Montgomery Co., IL to Robert HILL. There was also a Martha NASH who married 11 Feb 1850 in Montgomery Co., IL to James A. OUTLAW. On the 1830 census of Montgomery Co., IL, was listed Andrew NASH as male 20/30 yrs, 1 female under 5, one female 5/10 and one female 20/30. In 1853, Andrew was indicted for the murder of Alexander LOCKERMAN. Andrew and LOCKERMAN were drunk at a fourth of July picnic and there was a fight. Andrew stabbed LOCKERMAN and left for two years. He was found in Arkansas and brought back to Illinois for the trial. He was found guilty and was suppose to hang. His sentences was commuted to life in prison but there was a riot and he was killed.

Did WILLIAM CARROLL GORE marry JANE and move to Massac County, Illinois between 1840 and 1850? Did he marry Nancy and move to Carroll County, Arkansas between 1850 and 1860?
My family has been searching for ELIZA JANE GORE's parents for many years with no luck. In 1860 FANNIE GORE was living with HENRY C. GORE. Does anyone know how they are related?
