==============================================================
Obit from the Christian Advocate, May 20, 1897:

Nace S. Overall was born July 1, 1815, and died January 2, 1897. In 18 42 he was married to Permelia A. Kirby. He was a member of the Methodist C hurch about sixty years. The family to which he belonged and the communi ty in which he was reared were a strong support to our Church when Methodi sm was taking hold of Middle Tennessee. Like most of the primitive Methodi sts, he was firmly devoted to his Church, its institutions and its ministe rs. He liked the discipline. it would have pleased him if the Methodists h ad retained their old-time simplicity. His home was a resting place for t he itinerant preacher for more than fifty years. He was well-versed in t he Holy Scriptures. He was not an up-to-date Methodist, but he had help ed to strengthen the Church when it most needed help. He reared six sons a nd four daughters; all of them have borne the marks of being well reare d. For many months he knew that the end of life was near. He faced the sum mons with great composure, trusting in redeeming grace. A strong man in Is real is fallen! Long may his influence for good be felt.

From the Nashville and Louisville Christian Advocate, 24 June 1852 issue:

"Died, a few weeks since, in Calloway Co., Kentucky, while on a visit, Mr s. M. E. Wadley, wife of Rev. D. Wadley, in the 30th year of her age. S he was a native of Rutherford County, Tenn., embraced religion in 1835, fr om which time she was an exempliary Christian and though a great part of t he time a child of great affliction ( several words indecipherable ) confi dence in the goodness and promises of God. She expired to great peace a nd faith, seeming only to regret that she was called to leave behind a dev oted husband and lovely little daughter. T. W. Randle

Thanks for the obit for General Grant H. Those Harrisons marched to a
different drummer. My grandfather, Woodie Harrison, always said he
thought he was the only republican in Weakley County. Can you imagine
naming a son General Grant at the outbreak of the war of northern
aggression?

1834 Letter from Elizabeth Barnard Love
to her sister

Printed below is a June 19, 1835 letter from Elizabeth Barnard Love to h er sister Peggy Young in Burnsville, Yancey County, North Carolina. It w as provided by Belinda Bettis of Hayesville, North Carolina, a Barnard res earcher. Barnard is commonly misspelled "Barnett." Luke Barnard came in to Rabun County while Cherokees were still there. He arrived at a date whi ch appears to be before the date of the arrival of the Dillards (see Jo hn T. Coleman's article above) and had daughters, Sally Barnard (the wi fe of James Dillard), Elizabeth Barnard (wife of Thomas Love), Nancy Barna rd (wife of Doctor Carnes), Margaret (“Peggy") Barnard (wife of Josh ua P.

[NI1590] 1880 Census: Note this places a C.M. Harrison, born ~1857, in Eaton, TN
This C.M. Harrison is 30 years too young to be Baker's son! The marriage
to Julia would have occurred when Calvin M. was 9 years old! Therefore
this must be a different person than Calvin M. Harrison, son of Baker.

My great grandmother was Mary F. "Mollie" Harrison who married James Lee W hite in Gibson Co TN. On the gibson Co TN census dist 23 Mollie and Jul ie Harrison are listed in the Abraham & Clemantine Ford residents as st ep daughters which she may have been Clemantine's step daughter, as Abrah am had been married and have several other children. Julia is list ed as a widow age 30 and Mollie is 12 yrs old. I have been told Julia rema rried but not sure who. Any information would be appreciated. I have a co py of marriage license of James Lee White and Mary F. "Mollie" Harrison wh ich Abraham Ford signed as a witness. Any info would be appreciated

Harolyn,

Who were the parents of your Mary F. Harrison, and what approximate dat es are we talking about? As previously mentioned, I have a marriage cer t. for C.M. Harrison and J.A.T. Ford, which I believe is for the distri ct 23 C.M. Harrison rather than the Calvin M., son of Baker H. Harris on of Laneview-Trenton whom I am chasing. I'll be glad to email you a co py if you'd like - it gets pretty large when attached here.

As I stated in previous email Mollie and Julia are listed in the Gibs on Co TN 1880 census dist 23 in the Ford household.Listed in the next hous ehold is James Lee White who Mollie married. According to my Aunt, Julia r emarried and moved from Gibson Co TN. I can't be sure at this point b ut I really think Julia may have been a Ford. There were around 13 childr en of Abraham Ford.An aunt said Julia died April 26 1913, but in this bo ok my great grandmother had kept records in shows J. T. Harrison died Ju ne 30 1909. If you have information would appreciate it very much.
