GILLEY, BUSH
I’m researching my family and could use some help. My great grandfather was William Washington Gilley (I believe he was born in May, 1862). He married Malinda Izora Bush (born December 10, 1863, I believe) sometime in the 1880’s. [Note; there is a Cannon Co. marriage recorded, between William Gilley and "Linnie" Bush, on 5/28/1883] They migrated to Texas in the early 1900’s. My grandmother and her siblings all claim they came from Gilley Hill – but my grandmother, Edith, said she was born in Murfreesboro.
Children’s names were: Howard, Captain Arthur, John Sherman, Morris, Walter, Edith Hazeltine (my grandmother), Elizabeth Malinda, and Drusilla. (I believe there was another female child who was either stillborn or died in infancy)
Does anyone, by chance have any information on birthdates, full names, William Washington’s and Malinda’s parents, grandparents, etc.?
Anything you could provide would be a tremendous help. I’ve just begun to explore all of this.

McCABE, TODD
Searching for info on my great-great-grandmother Cornelia Ann McCABE. She was born March 31, 1846. She married my great-great-grandfather James Hiram TODD Nov. 1, 1866, in Cannon Co. TN. She died Feb. 1, 1922. This is all the information that I have on her. My aunt believes that her mother’s name was Cornelia as well and may have been from Ireland, but I am not sure as to that last part. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
