My grandmother was Hazel Carter and grandfather was Polk Farr. He was a miner there and was killed in a mining accident in 1929 my mother was 6 days old. All I know is he was 20 when he died and was born in Tennessee. I am trying to find any information on my family . My mother died 12/15/1999 and I have never had contact with Henry Needham. I have some pictures and a couple letters from my oldest living great aunt Helen . I hope there is a way to find anyone that may be family or know of my family.
My mother moved to Chicago when I was about four and never talked about the past. It seemed too hard for her, being raised by a stepfather who never wanted her. She left school around the third year. Any help or direction would be great. Thank you

She died abt 1912 in Warren County, Tennessee and is buried at Charles Creek Cemetery, Warren, Tennessee. I'm unsure of her maiden name because in looking at death records at High's Funeral Home in McMinnville, Warren, TN: my grandfather has one name for his mother and one of his siblings had the other surname. I'm at a dead end on 'Grannie Annie'. Being a Smith doesn't help much in researching Genealogy :) ! My grandfather was William Edward 'Willie' Smith born 6 Jan 1881 died 18 Dec 1927. My great-grandfather was Charles(Charley) Vinson Smith (C.V.).
He was born 17 Mar 1856, died 2 Mar 1944. Willie and C.V. are both buried at Blues Hill Cemetery, Warren County.
Charles Edward or William Edward (I'm told he went by Coonie) Smith was born 1 Jan 1818- died ca. 1927 in Warren County. He is buried at Kirby Cemetery, Warren County. His wife Annie is buried at Charles Creek Cemetery, Warren County. I don't know why they were buried at different cemeteries. About a mile apart-maybe.

ELLIOTT, HERRING, MILLIGAN -
I am researching Henry C. Elliott. Born 11/18/1823 in Kentucky. Married Sarah Herring in 1849, Kentucky. Henry died 9/15/1856 Boone County, MO. Buried at Walnut Grove Cemetery, Lancaster, MO. Sarah apparently took the children (Katherine (Belle?), William A (My gr. grandfather) James R. and Henry C....back to Kentucky as census records show her in 1860 in Garrard County and there are other Herrings listed. I am unable to find his parents..and I cannot find the death date and place of Sarah. Sarah born 1824 in Garrard Co. KY. I show the children living with Sallie Milligan, Strasbury, Cass, MO in 1880..which makes me think Sarah passed away before that date. Although, the "children" are older at that time.

CLAVEL, CLAVILL, CLAVILLE, CLAYVILL, CLAYVILLE, CLAYWELL -
Trying to put family tree together for my family from Chincoteague, Accomack County,VA. I'm back to 1820 to James Clavill, born circa 1820 in Accomack, VA, married to Mary (Unknown). Can't pinpoint his father since censuses at that time only listed name of "head of household". I've found a George Clavill in 1820 census with a male son under 10 yrs of age. Also found a Peter Clavel, born in Accomack abt 1680 and died in Worcester, MD 1745, married Lucretia. He maybe the early beginning for all Clavels, Clayvills, etc. Land records show he lived west of Parksley, VA while in Accomack Cty. My window of lost information lies between Peter Clavel 1680 and James Clavill 1820. Doesn't help since the name has been mispelled over the centuries. Any help deeply appreciated. Thanking you now...Bob C

BOYD, MITCHELL, ROBERTS, RUSSELL, TRIGG, WILEY -
Russell fam are from my mother,'s maternal side I know that Ruell Russell and Priscilla Boyd, Russell are my gggrt. And that their son, my ggrt. Andrew Wilson Russell, moved to Clay co. Mo Liberty With his family and married widow Anna Wiley, Trigg. and had their children there. I have all that. But I am looking for their dau. Josephine,'s mother-in-law's fam. Mother-in-law is Mazilla Russell b. Oct. 1824 in Va(?WVa)
The last thing I have of her is the head count done here in IL Crawford Co. in the twp of Oblong. And I also know she died before the 1900 census for that county. and that her husb. Cyrus Mitchell wasn't there he was living with thier youngest son (my ggrt) Geo. Washington Mitchell and wife (Josephine Mildred Russell) in Richland co. in the twp of Olney until 1903 when all 3 of them moved to Coles co. in the twp of Mattoon, IL. where Cyrus, Josephine died and Geo remarried and died in 1934 in Crawford co. and buried with his wife and dau and grandau and his father and my mother. But nothing was mentioned of Mazilla died before Cyrus or anything of Mazilla. by the Mattoon Gazzett or Mattoon Journal. Or any local papers where she was living.
So you see I have nothing of her before dec.1845
The Roberts fam. is my husband,'s mother,'s paternal side; this is what I have . James E. Roberts b. 1835 Va his mother is Susannah born 1877 Va his father?? b.//Va He married Sarah? they had James W. 1864, John 1866, Charles Winston july 13,1868 (grandfather of my husb.) They went to Ky and in the Adair co.census by 1880 where Charles was about to be 2. They lived in Gradysville, Leatherwood prect. I have all the up to date info. but nothing before 1880. I dont know if John James and Charles were born in Ky,Va,N.C. as was said in the 1910 census in Adair co.Ky. I know James E. died before 1900 in Adair ?? and his mother also.
