  1. There is a similar story in our family tree that remains unsolved in the same general vicinity, but as far as I can tell no documents to help with solving it. I am wondering if there are any resources that may have documented some of these events?

  2. In what county and state was Thomas Nations living?
    Thank you.

  3. Don, you always provide the most memorable information. Thanks.

  9. The original Thomas Nations owned land on Muddy Creek of Surry Co. NC in the 1770s but later (1788) moved to Paw Creek in Mecklenburg Co. NC and then to TN, where most of his children followed him and migrated down into north Alabama. Hiram Nations, of Blount County, Alabama, was his grandson and had been born to the 2nd Thomas Nations in Tennessee. Hiram Nations was married to Louisa Thompson, the daughter of Joshua Thompson and Mary Morton Thompson of Pendleton SC. Joshua Thompson was murdered while “longhunting” into the Chickasaw Nation along with at least one of his son’s and others on the trip before 1827, somewhere in north Alabama.

  10. She was rescued by our ancestor, Tandy Walker.
