Woodrow W. Hogue Sun May 18 15:23:38 1997
Would like any information regarding J.A. HOGUE and Margarett E. WALLACE. They were married in Hardeman County on January 4, 1861. We are aware of 2 children, James S. HOGUE born November 27, 1865, probably in McNairy County and William Carson HOGUE born May 29, 1869 in Hardeman County. There may be other children. We do not know what J.A.'s given name was, however, on one son's death certificate, his name is shown as Joe. One relative thinks it might be Josiah. On the 1850 census record, there is listed a William and Salenia HOGUE living in Hardeman County, who had a child named Josiah who would have been born in approximately 1836 which is the same approximate year that J.A. would have been born. Josiah had 3 sisters, Clementine, Narcessa, and Mary and 1 brother named William. Any information on any of these persons would be greatly appreciated.

My STEWART ancestors lived in McNairy Co from about 1860 to 1885. William Shepard STEWART married Susan SPRINGER in 1853. His sister, Melissa STEWART, married John C. GOFORTH. Another sister, Fatima STEWART, married Thomas SPRINGER but died soon afterward. Wm. Shepard STEWART's mother's name was Elizabeth but we do not know her maiden name. By 1850, his father was dead or had left the family. Susan SPRINGER's family came from South Carolina. We think the STEWART family was from North Carolina or Tennessee and that they lived in Missouri for a time during the 1830's. I am searching for the parents of William Shepard STEWART.

I have a family mystery to unpuzzle. MARTHA CHURCHILL married a "YANKEE". therefore her husbands first name has not been passed down! All I know is that his last name was MILES. Was he a true yankee or simply a Tennessean who fought for the Union? Martha and her husband married ca 1870. They had 2 daughters before her husband died ca 1874. Martha and one daughter - Ann - are in Iuka, MS in 1880. No trace of Martha or Ann(who married a John Ledbetter) after 1880. Second daughter - Elizabeth Belle Miles married Ernest Lee Dunn ca 1890 in Lee Co. MS. Looking for any info on CHURCHILL/MILES/LEDBETTER families in McNairy Co.
