  2. Ok I have a family mystery on my hands and was told my 3X Great Grandfather along with 2 of his brothers were ordered to court in 1848 as Orphans. It has said that his father was 1842 Thomas Gill was a Road Commissioner in Morgan County,Tennessee. By change do you know if there is anywhere I can look to see if this is true?? I have had an issue with finding out any facts about Thomas or his wives (we think he was married twice) or the names of his children.
    I have not seen the court records but was told that Marion and John were the other brothers.
    Marion moved North and died in the Civil war and Curtis died on the way home it was said. Curtis was the Great Grandfather of Audie Murphy,, WW 2 Hero if that helps any.
    Thanks so much
