OVER THE EDITOR'S DESK
Many of our more recent subscribers are not familiar with the background of the
Tennessee Genealogical Society and its quarterly magazine; therefore, it seems
appropriate to give here a few of the facts.
The society started in 1952 as the Memphis Genealogical Society with 25 local members,
but as the interest and numbers grew beyond the Memphis area, the name was changed in
1965 to the Tennessee Genealogical Society. We are in no way funded by the state, but
are simply a group of volunteers who like to promote our favorite hobby. We earn our
funds by publishing this quarterly, "Ansearchin'" News, and offering for sale books
which have been given to us by the compilers and which are listed on our back blue page.
The profits from our labors are used to support and build our genealogical library,
which now contains over 3700 volumes.
"Ansearchin'" News, as it appears now, is the result of the ideas of nine different
editors over the twenty-eight years of publication. There is a story told about its
unique name. One of the early members called another whose maid answered the phone
with the reply, "She ain't here. She's out ansearchin' ." From this coined word,
the ti.t1e was formed. For the first six years, the publication was called a bulletin
and carried much local news on fewer pages. These were later combined in a second
edition of 201 pages titled Volumes I-VI, 1954-1959, omitting some of the outdated news.
We greatly appreciate the kind comments we receive and welcome contributions of
Tennessee-related material. The earliest dated material receives priority, and we
prefer that it should be at least 100 years old.
(
Each subscriber is entitled to one free query per year; this must be fifty words or
less, however we do sometimes allow a few more words to complete a sentence. Some
subscribers send us several queries at a time, but I cannot recall having enough
space to go back and pick one up at a later date. Information we cannot use in print
is placed in our vertical tiles.

lbe Sevier Family Reunion will be held June 19-21 in Gatlinburg, TN. Contact James
S. Corbitt, 118 Gardner Ave., Martin, TN 38237 for details. If we don't get this
issue to you in time for this year, mark your calendar for two years hence; this is
the 13th biennial reunion.
A newsletter from the Van Buren County Historical Society has been received announcing
the formation of that group and inviting others to join. This county was formed in
1840 from Warren, White and Bledsoe counties, but has had no historical society until
last September when this group began its meetings. They have made great strides in
a very short time , probably because each of the members has undertaken a specific
project. One has compiled a list of all Civil War veterans from the county. Another
has copied every cemetery marker and supplied additional information on the families
wherever known. Still another has collected information on all the post offices of
the past, and others are delving into the history of railroads, schools, doctors etc.
Annual dues of $5.00 may be sent to Margaret Rhinehart, Treas. Box 128, Spencer, TN 38585.

Creek Indian lands, but after the Civil War, parts of Bullock and Russell Counties
were taken from it. Information in this book was gathered primarily from Barbour
County probate records, census records and descendants of early families. Eightysix families, alphabetized from Adams to Zorn, with the sources of information for
each family are included. In some cases, official records from other states and
counties other than Barpour were used in the family records. Here is much helpful
information for those who have family connections in Barbour County.

In 1973 the authors found an old typewritten copy of a Garner family history, and
this led to seven years of intensive genealogical research. They have located
seventeen Revolutionary ancestors in the process of documenting their two families,
but caution that they have left in a few minor errors for those who like to look for
such things! The arrangement of m~terial is unique and concise. Ninety-four fami~
lies were catalogued and arranged alphabetically, with maternal lines merging into
paternal tines at the proper place by a'simple reference, [See Hanks] [See Ford] etc.

to find its place in history, and to meet some of its members. As time passed,
more and more people sent in their family records, and so this publication was born.
Especially interesting are certain wills and deeds which are quoted verbatim, and
accounts of soldiers of Revolutionary and Civil Wars. This genealogy begins with
William Wood, who obtained land in Stafford Co., VA in 1729 in that part of the
county which became Prince William and later Fauquier County. Some allied lines are:
Atwood, Austin, Franklin, Fridley, Rage, Lawler, Moody, Potter, Tharp, Truman, Young.

Order from Southern Historical Press,
Each of the counties is described in great detail arid every aspect of life there
treated with care; biographical material on many, many families ends each county
section. Early settlers of the county are named along with the date each arrived.
Most of the county histories include the names and dates of judges, clerks, sheriffs,
treasurers, coroners and state representatives. Many times referendes are made to
citizens' state and county of birth, which gives valuable clues on what county to
chl~ck in the state they came from.
There is a wealth of material here; be sure and
check the two separate indexes.

Wrigley, TN 37098 or Mrs. Rubye Tatum, RR#l, Box 140, Lyles, TN 37098
$14.00
This excellent volume is a compilation of marriages of both black and white citizens
of Hickman Co. TN through 1894. Because of a courthotlse fire in 1864, the marriage
books began with 1868 and went through 1894. The records prior to 1868 were
gathered from many sources: loose papers found in the courthouse vault, family
Bibles, obituaries, census records, and two earlier publications, Court Records of
Hickman County, Tennessee, 1833-1856 and Marriages of Hickman Cou~~~nnessee
by Leeper. This is a well-researched and helpful listing of early marriages that
cannot be found in official records alone.

BLADEN COUNTY, NORTH, CAROLINA ABSTRACTS OF EARLY DEEDS 1738-1804 by Brent H. Holcomb,
C.A.L.S. 1979. Soft back. 81 pp. Indexed. Order from the Southern Historical
Press, P.O. Box 738, Easley, se 29640. $10.00.
Bladen County was formed in 1734 from New Hanover County, and at its formation encompassed everything west of the present county. Cumberland County was formed
entirely from Bladen, as were Robeson and Anson, and part of Orange County once was
in Bladen. Therefore the abstracts in this volume are especially informative, with
many long chains of title going back to original grants and many references to Craven County, South Carolina. Three courthouse fireS have destroyed many early records,
a fact which makes this book particulary valuable.
THE BIOGRAPHICAL ~CYCLOPAEDIA OF KENTUCKY (OF THE DEAD AND LIVING MEN OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY) Compiled and published by J.M. Armstrong and Co., Cincinatti, OH.
1878. New material copyrighted 1980 by The Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr. Hard back.
Over 819 pp. Indexed. Order from the Southern Historical Press % The Rev. Silas
Emmett Lucas, Jr., P.O. Box 738, Easley, SC

$42.50.
Kentucky has had many histories and biographies and other means of recording the
early settlement, and organization of the territory as a county of Virginia and as a
state., Probably no state is more interesting from an histor.ic point of view. From
this state settlers moved north to the Northwest Territories, west to Missouri and
the new lands farther west; and south and sou.thwestto the new territories of Mississippi, Arkansas, and Texas. The famed 'Dark and Bloody Ground' is rich'in biographical material. Many of the men who helped niake history in Kentucky are given
space in this publication. The biographies cover the period from the early pioneers
to 1878, the date of this publication. Researchers will find much material here.

EARLY RECORDS OF HUNT COUNTY, TEXAS by Loraine, Dodson StQry.
Indexed.
1979.' Soft back. 42 pp.
Order fro~ Search-:-N-prin,t, P.O. Box 777, Farmersvil:le, TX 75031
$6.00.
Recorded here are the 1850 Census, 1850 ,Mortality Schedule, 1850 Slave Schedule,.
and 93 marriages from 1847-1851. These marriages are recorded in the back of
Deed Book A and are therefore not readily avai~able to the researcher who writes
for information. The transcriber, a lifelong resident of the county, put in many
hours on extremely difficult to decipher handwriting. These records will be a
valuable aid and much appreciated by researchers with family in this region of the
large state of Texas.

FAMILY GATHERINGS
Compiled by Jessie Taylor Webb
ROY FAMILY RECORDS - From Mrs. Velma J. Thompson, Rt. 1, Box 208, Senatobia, MS 38668.
As a child about fifty years ago, Mrs. Thompson found a yellowed page with faded handwritten records of the Roy family in an old log house on what was known as the old Dr.
Roy Farm west of Millington, TN. The record says:
FAMILY RECORD
ROY - born 6 July 1590
M.A. ROY - born 20 Dec. 1596
HENRY L. ROY - born 1 Jan. 1615
JOHN B. ROY - born 22 June 1621
MARY A. ROY - born 18 Feb. 1617
JAMES B. ROY - born 16 Aug. 1623
LUCY C. ROY - born 20 Apr. 1619
JOSEPH B. ROY - born 23 Nov. 1625
DEATH
MATILDA A. ROY Died 13 Sept. 1599
MARRIAGES
M.L. ROY - - - - - - - The balance of this line is obliterated by stains and the penciled record has been
rubbed too thin to read, but it is possible that the bride's last name ended in
"- - -ton"and that the year is 1614. .
Although this piece of paper is very old, it does not seem to have been written in
the seventeenth century. It is probably information taken from an older bible record
and was the property of M. L. Roy who appeared on the 1840 Federal Census of Shelby
Co TN (A.N. Vol. 16, p. 116.)
M.L.
(
Annice McDaniel Bolton of Millington gave this information on the ROY family:
MEREDITH L. ROY, born 1806 in South Carolina, became a minister in Shelby Co., Tenn.
performing marriages in the 2nd Civil District until 1879. In 1888 he owned 129.74
acres of land on Bear Creek, Herrin~ Hill Road with the CRAINs. CORBITTs. DUNNs,
MILLINGTONs. YORKs .and McDANIELs for neighbors. He married on 9 Jan. 1833 in Dickson Co .• Tenn. - SUSAN GENTRY. born 1813, died 1896 in Shelby Co., Tenn. Their
children were:
1. JOHN ROY - born 1835 in Shelby Co •• Tenn.
2. WM. T. ROY - born 1836; ml - FRANCES J. MUST (?); m2 - MARTHA TAYLOR; m3 - SUSAN
McFADDEN TURNER.
3. ELIZABETH ROY - born 1838 in Shelby Co., Tenn.; died 1892 and buried in Crain
Family Cemetery.
4. FRANCES ROY - born 1840 in Shelby Co., Tenn.; mCLARIDGE.
5. JES~E A. ROY - born 1842 in Shelby Co., Tenn.
6. MEREDITH L. ROY. Jr. - born 1845; died 1903 in Miss.(?)
7. ALFRED ROY - born 1849.
8. DAVE ROY - born 1852.
THE ELUSIVE SIDON HARRIS, Sr. - from Virginia Smith Parker, P.O. Box 837,
Raymopdville, TX 78580.
SIDON HARRIS. Sr. was born about 1770, probably in Virginia. He made an affidavit in
1855 in Madison Co •• Tenn. stating he enlisted in the War of 1812 from Overton Co.,
Tenn. and at the time of the making of the affidavit was 75 years old and living in
Haywood Co •• Tenn. In 1858 he was granted 160 acres of land for his service - location
unknown. The 1820 census of Overton Co. lists him with both male and female children.
"Ansearchin'" News
72
Family Gatherings (continued)
The 1830 census shows him in Madison Co., Tenn. with wife and four females between
age of 20 and 30. Only two of his children are known:
1. JOHN HARRIS, born about 1812/13 probably in Tenn. (or KY), came to Texas with
David Crockett as a member of Tennessee Mounted Volunteers, and died 6 March 1836
in the Seige of the Alamo. Amelia WILLIAMS in her thesis published on the "Seige
.of the Alamo and Its Personnel", states David Crockett and John Harris were first
cousins, but proof of this is lacking. John Harris was a single man and could have
been named for David's father, John Crockett.
2. SIDON H. HARRIS, born 12 Nov. 1820 in Tenn., married on 9 "Aug. 1842 in Pontotoc
Co., Miss. Amanda Caroline ATKINSON, daughter of Samuel Washington and Nancy Jordan
Atkinson. She was the granddaughter of Samuel and Sarah WASHINGTON ATKINSON of VA •
. and NC and Thomas and Priscilla APPLEWHITE JORDAN of VA and GA. In 1850 Sidon and
Amanda were in Lauderdale Co., Tenn. on their way to Texas. About 1852 they settled
in Caldwell Co., Texas where Sidon died in 1861 and Amanda in 1866. Both are buried
in the Harris family plot in Caldwell Co., Texas.
In Daughters of Republic of Texas Library, San Antonio, a WILLIAM HARRIS was found who
was said to be a younger brother of Sidon, Sr. In the 1826 census of Atascosita,
Texas there is a William, age 44, born in VA, wife -Anna HARMON, age 38, born in LA,
8 children all born in LA. This William is said to have been killed during the Civil
War at Cold Harbor, VA.
Sidon, Jr. probably went to Texas to take charge of the bounty land given to the heirs
of John Harris as he acted as administrator of this brother's estate after hi~ arrival
in Texas.
All records seem to be of the opinion that Sidon, Sr. married a CROCKETT or a HAWKINS,
which would make her a sister of John Crockett or Rebecca Hawkins Crockett, parents
of David. Can anyone help on this, or the parents of Sidon Harris,Sr.?

ALEXANDER-MARTIN FAMILY BIBLE - Contributed by Robert Young Clay, Richmond, VA.
This Bible was owned by Mrs. George McClure, 1539 Laurel Ave., Knoxville, TN. Mr.
Clay copied it about 1960, but neglected to ask the geographic origin of the family.
Mrs. McClure was the landlady of a friend who brought the Bible to his attention.

GRAINGER COUNTY PETITIONS
To the Honorable the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee
The petition of a number of the inhabitants of Grainger County humbly Representeth:
That it is believed much inconvenience will result to the Citizens of
said county from the operation of an act recently passed by your honorable Body which
compells. the Register & Rangers of the respective counties in said State to remove
their offices to, & hold them at their respective court-houses.
That at a Court held for said county at the court-house in the town
of Rutlage in february last the Register of said county tendered his Resignation to
the court which was accepted - That although there were sundry persons residing in
said Town well qualified to fill the office of Register with ability, yet not one
could be induced to accept said office who resided at the court-house - That the said
office is one of high importance to the .public, yet the fees of office are so inconsiderable as not to authorize a person comfortably settled on a farm in the country
to remove to town to attend to the Duties of said office:
We the undersigned your memorialists therefore pray the premises considered that you will be pleased so to modify the abovementioned act as to permit
the Register & Rangers of Grainger county to hold his offices at any place in said
county Provided the distance from the Registers office to the Court-house does not
exceed five or six miles.
And your Petitioners as in Duty bound will ever pray, etc.

Early Records of Grainger County, Tennessee (continued)
This record is torn apart in several places and a few naines on the fold of the paper
have been lost. Occasionally several signatures are written in the same hand, but
no X marks are given. Some names are very faded, some are blotted with ink, and
some have been crossed out or removed by erasure. Spellings vary, and i and tare
sometimes not dotted or crossed; and like many modern signatures, some are simply
illegible. In most cases we have not tried to second-guess, but have copied here
the most literal transcription possible for us. BFW
To the Honorable General Assembly of the State of Tennessee:
We the undersigned Citizens of Grainger and Claiborne counties humbly represent that
the Turnpike road leading to Kentucky crossing Clinch· Mountain~,at the three stone
gap can be much amended by turning to the left at,or near the house of Dawson Cheek
on the north side of said Mountain •••• coming ••••present(?) Road at the town of Tazwell, the ground over which the road would pass is much leveller, an excellent and
safe ford in Clinch River, clear of rocks, & only one-half mile the furthest, by
total measurement.
(Your petitioners further?) represent that the present Road is very
broken full of large rocks, a bad narrow ford in said river which compells most of
the travellors to ferry the River when it can be forded at the other crossing with
perfect safety, the hills are so steep and full of Rocks that it is almost impossible
to make a road in many places sufficiently wide for waggons to pass each other should
they meet in those narrow places, which are in pl(aces?) at least one (quarter of a
mile ••. ?) ••. your honorable body to pass an act authorising the commissioners 6f said
road or a majority of them to view the two roads & direct the road the best way for
the public - And your petitioners as in Duty bound will ever pray •••••••••
