My great-grandparents lived on the Cumberland River in TN. I have been told that it was Davidson County. This was back in the 1800's. Thomas William Roberts and Mollie Amanda Chatham Roberts were their names. I have been unable to go further in the lineage and was wondering if you could direct me. My understanding is that Mollie's mother was a Cherokee. I have been unable to locate her name. I know that Mollie's father was Will Chatham but have not found anything to locate the mother.

There is nothing like being SLOW to respond. I'm really sorry. Have had family illness and have not checked the board in awhile.

But, how about this.

According to the 1880 census, Mollie Amanda Chatham was 22 years old (born 1858) and was living with her parents, William and Sarah Chatham in Nashville. Also in the house were siblings:

Thomas age 27
Mary age 24
Joanna age 14
Edward Age 6
Addie Age 1

I have a copy of the census page for you if you want to e-mail me so I can send it (evancol@yahoo.com).

Also, you may find more on Mollie or her family by using this Access Genealogy. It is a genealogy site for Native Americans.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to find definite information on my great great grandfather, William James Orr. I am told he was born in Nashville, Tennessee, Davidson County. I do know he migrated to Missouri and stayed there until his death. Iam also told his mother was Talitha Orr who was born in North Carolina. Who do I contact to try to find information on William James Orr?
