I am searching for a family of McCorkle's that has a daughter born about 1836 named Tabitha or Taletha McCorkle. She married in about 1859 or 1860 to a Thomas F. Holder. I do not know if it is the same Thomas F. Holder who married a Hiley McAlpin in 1845 or not. I cannot find them in the 1860 census nor the 1870 census.
Thomas worked in Washington Co. VA as a farmhand but I cannot find him in either census record. Tabitha and family ended up in Washington Co., VA and remarried a James Coil in 1868. So Thomas may have died in the Civel War.
This is all the information I have on them. Tabitha had two girls born in Greene Co, TN. Susan Ellen born 1862 and Elizabeth born 1863. There may have been two boys but I do not know if they were Tabitha's or not. They were George W. and John M.
George was listed with wife and children next door to Tabitha Coil in Washington Co., VA in 1880 census. George was born in 1855 or 1856 in TN.
If anyone has any information please email me.

In 1860 10th district Greene County, Tennessee, you will find a Frances McCorkle and wife Isabella which I believe maybe Talitha McCorkle's parents. They are also in the 1850 census but Talitha is not listed with them. I cannot find her with Thomas Holder in 1860 but Hily Holder his first wife is in Greene County in the 1850 census.
