Found in my mother's old papers a picture of B. C. Cantrell and daughter.I am sure the picture was just fascinating to my mother as she was an avid newspaper clipper, no known relation. The picture shows B. C. Cantrell of McMinnville with a big bass horn and his daughter is sitting in the horn. Will send to anyone who can prove lineage to this family. The picture was in a Nashville publication dated 1927.

I'm looking for decendants of Ruth ANDERSON DOAK. Her name could of been Ruby Ruth. She had a brother named Homer D. ANDERSON who was my Grandfather. She also had a sister named Grady whom married Bethel JONES in 1925. Their parents were Luther ANDERSON and Alma Josephine "Joe" LUSK ANDERSON. Homer married Clara CANTRELL and of that marriage they had 1 son,Ralph Edward ANDERSON,who was my father. All are deceased. I know that all are buried in Riverside Cemetry in McMinnville,except my father. I'm trying to locate the DOAK'S as they may know about the ANDERSON lineage. I believe Ruth had a son named PRESTON DOAK or that was her husband's name. Any help would be appreciated.

Seeking any info on David MILLER, David BROWN, and/or Thomas LANGFORD, all of whom appear on p. 5 of the 1812 Warren Co tax list. My ancestor David BROWN moved from Warren Co to St Clair Co AL ca. 1814-1817. His oldest daughter married Washington LANGFORD, and his oldest surviving son was named Miller BROWN, so there is reason to suspect continuing closeness among the BROWN, LANGFORD and MILLER families, that may have begun in TN (or earlier) and lasted after migration to AL. It's certainly a long shot, but little clues sometimes provide big help! Any pertinent info greatly appreciated.

There is a William STROUD in the 1820 TN census with one female under 5, and on the 1830 census, the same William STROUD of Warren Co., lived near a Samuel RIDINGEAR (very possibly the father of Joseph as that was his father's name and they were in TN c. 1830). Joseph's and Emeline's first child was born c. 1832. John P. was born in TN, but all others were born in AL. Charlotte was born c. 1834; therefore, placing them in AL after 1832 but about 1834.
