    I’m looking for my husband’s family that lived in Bible Hill & Parsons. His grandfather was Thurlow Rains. He ran a bar/restaurant back in the 30’s and died from a bad batch of moonshine. He had no legs due to polio.
    We’re also looking for Silas Rains (1883-1956). Don’t know how he’s related but we found a picture of his tombstone.

        My Great Grand Father was James Thomas Bird, grandson of Thomas Priddy Bird, and son of Banister Priddy Bird. Thomas Priddy Bird is buried at New Hope Methodist Church. David Bird & his 1st wife Katherine (Priddy) Bird are also buried there. David Bird had a large homestead valued & $20,000 in 1859(when he died). He had donated the kand for the New Hope Church & Cemetery. Thomas Bird lived from 1815 until 1910. Six of David’s sons fought for the Confederacy as did Thomas Bird’s 2 oldest sons. 3 of Tom’s brother and his 2 sons were killed. His brother George Yell Bird lived in Gainsville, Tx. and was a very important person. You can google George Yell Bird to find out more about him.

    Thomas Crosby born 1 April 1776 in Virginia was last seen living in Henderson County per the 1850 Census, District # 1 with his married daughter Mary Anna Muns and her husband Timothy Muns at the age of 83 years old. Also another in the house hold is another daughter of Thomas, Susan Crosby. Although their last names are noted as Cosby their names are Crosby. I am looking for Thomas’ grave and he is believed to have passed in Henderson County.

    I am looking for information about George Dallas Smith, born in 1814, married to Prudence Hobbs of Hardin County, Tennessee. The family lived in and around Scotts Hill and Decatur after the Civil War. They are my 2nd great grandparents. George died before the 1880 census, and Prudence moved back to Hardin County, eventually marrying her neighbor, Pink Nichols. George is buried in Hardin County, in Aenon Cemetery, but I have been unable to find Prudence’s burial site. If you have information about this family, please reply! Thanks!

    Eli Hamilton Barr joined the Confederacy in Dec 1861 and was under Captain J. A. Russell at Shiloh. Survived it to die on May 1, 1862 of complications of measles (pneumonia)in Carter County, KY. Most information on the 51st Consolidated Infantry Regiment, Company B, is general. I would like to track the unit to his death date, in an effort to find his place of burial. Any information or guidance appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  7. I am researching my great grandfather, Henry Thomas Britton, who married Palina Tennessee Moore. I do not have any information on his lineage, nor a death certficate, place of burial, etc. I have Palina’s information; she is the daughter of W L and Eliza Jane Moore. I am especially interested in seeing if he is connected to the other Britton’s in Henderson County, TN. I cannot locate him in the 1900 census and they lived in Hardin and McNairy counties in the early 1900’s.

    I am especially wondering if there is any connection to Thomas Britton who married Sarah Joyner?

    Any help would be appreciated.
