BREWER, DUNCAN, RAINS -
I am looking for the marriage of Ashael RAINS & Melvina DUNCAN. He was born 1772, so guessed he would have married in about 1792. He purchased property in Greenville Co. in about 1796 and returned from Warren Co.TN after the War of 1812 and sold this same parcel of property.
Also looking for marriage of Solomon BREWER to Elizabeth, and I believe to be the sister of Melvina DUNCAN. The time period would be about the same. I will be happy to share any of my RAINS information.
Thank you. Laura RAINS Jones, born Cannon Co.TN 1927, now live in FL

WOOLS -
I would like some help on where to research my ancestor. On the Census in IN it says that he was born in VA. His name is Daniel Wools b: 1778 and had a brother Philip who was a few years older. They lived with their parents, Christopher and Elizabeth Wools and other female siblings in KY in 1788. Other than checking each and every county for these names, is there another way that would be quicker?

DONELSON, SHAFFER -
Searching for birth, marriage and most important the parents of Ebenezer Donelson. He was born in 1784 or 1782 in VA. Married Barbara Shaffer in 1817. Don't know parents but have eliminated Col. John Donelson and any of his children. Could be Andrew, Col. John's brother who was born in 1722 in VA, son of Capt. John Donelson. Also have information on Ebenezer's stone in Mercer, Missouri. It lists his parents as H.M. and R. It also references his siblings as Matilda and Weslie (or Leslie?). Appreciate any help you can give or suggestions you might have. Thanks,
