Much of the information included on these web pages has been collected from a variety of generous sources who were willing to share their knowledge with me when I got "bit" by the genealogy "bug". In an attempt to repay the debt, I'm making available, via the web, what information they have provided in addition to what I have gathered to anyone who might be interested. All of this should be taken with the proverbial "grain of salt" as I have personally verified only a limited amount of this information. My sources are referenced where ever possible and photographic copies of many documents, tombstones, etc. are provided when available to aid you in your own personal search.

Check back often to see what's new!


  • For folks without javascript or having trouble with the floating menu, a new Fixed Link Menu page has been created.

  • The estate settlement records for Dr. John D. Carne, Sr. are now posted and available to all. Thanks to Mrs. Emily Walker of the Gibson County Archives for her work in collecting, cleaning and indexing the files, and for permitting me to photograph these "loose records" found in storage in the courthouse basement and clocktower.

  • Miscellaneous deeds and wills obtained from a quick Gibson county courthouse visit on a brief trip to West TN August 2006.
