My ancestor, Nancy A. BOTTS married Isaac W. HUTCHISON in
Dekalb County in 1852. Nancy's parents were Walter
and Prudence BOTTS, most likely born in NC around 1800. "Ike" and Nancy
lived out their lives in Sumner
County, but, as far as I know, Nancy and Walter continued to live in
Dekalb County, or they may have moved West.
If anyone has information on the BOTTS family, I would be extremely grateful and glad to share what little I have.

Seeking information on John Franklin Keefe and Martha Jane
Nokes. They would have been born aroun 1850 in Tennessee.
They appeared in the 1880 census of Dekalb Co Tennessee. Their children
were Robert Wade Keefe and Susie Keefe.
Robert Wade Keefe is my great grand father. I have not been able to
find who John Franklin Keefe or Martha Nokes'
parents are because I really haven't found any other record of them.
There was a Jonas and Sobrina Nokes who had
a daughter Martha but the age is a off by about 5 years (although they
had a son James who appears to live next
door to John Franklin Keefe and Martha Nokes in the 1880 census). Also
there was a John and Nancy Keef (keath)
in earlier censuses who had a son John (who possibly could be John
Franklin Keefe) but again the age is wrong.
However, they all lived in DeKalb County TN. Any help would be
