Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
My friends -
I had planned to move into Hickman County for today's post, but I find that
I have a set of items ready in Fulton County, so we will work with those
items today. This is a continuation of our series on the Fulton County
Vital Statistics birth records for the 1852-1859 time frame.
Subscribers to the Fulton and JP lists can obtain the full dataset for an
individual shown in the listing below by sending a request to me. These
datasets usually contain the date of birth, the gender of the child if not
obvious, the name of the father and maiden name of the mother, and, in
about 50% of the cases, a location within Fulton County where the birth
occurred is also given.
Your continuing assistance is not resending this entire message back to me
with the request is appreciated.
Tomorrow, we will have another narrative from the works of Professor Gordon
Fulton County - Vital Statistics Records - Births - 1852-1859 - Part 4

Hi good to be back in Blue Grass Country! Found my wifes great grand
mother in Woodland Mills,TENN Mary M.Bobo in the 1880 Census listed as a
widow age 47. Look on Yahoo maps and it about a 30 min drive to
Fulton and Hickman. Her first husband a Bobo must ave been
killed in the Civil War. We would like to know who her Bobo husband was!
My friends -
Although we normally begin a new week of data posts on Mondays, I am going
to slightly deviate from that schedule today to offer a couple of items
from my "miscellaneous files" contained on the several hundred old 5"
floppies that I mention from time to time. These files are somewhat
different from the norm.
There is always a lot of interest in early church minutes. I found that I
had, years ago, saved some information from the original Church Book(which
has subsequently been lost, as I understand it)from the original Antioch
Church of Christ, which was located right on the Calloway/Graves county
line and which was founded about 1836 by settlers who were primarily from
North Carolina, some of whom had gone to Alabama and then on to the Jackson
Purchase. This book of church minutes begins in 1838 and end in 1852. There
are some missing pages, but the minutes consist of listings of new members,
members who were dismissed, expelled, baptized, etc. The surnames contained
in these minutes include Parkhill, Clapp, Jones, Turnbow, West, Nance,
Williams, Armstrong, Simmons, Turner, Stroud, Price, Francis, Matheny,
Chambers, Kelly, Hainline, Crider, Brush, Drown, Shutts, Lombard, Harris,
Hale, Dalton, Thompson, Gray, Doom(s), Pogue and McAbee.
Additionally, I have converted a file which contains the names of
individuals who were on the federal pension rolls as of 1 January 1883 in
Graves and Fulton counties. This file shows the name of the pensioner, the
county and post office address for the pensioner, the cause for which the
pension was allowed, the amount of the monthly pension and the date of the
original allowance. This has many widows of War of 1812 soldiers, as well
as some men who were wounded or otherwise disabled, and several "dependent
mother" listings. The surnames contained in this file include Abernathy,
Adair, Allison, Askew, Austin, Barton, Canter, Chappell, Cook, Davidson,
Darrington, Emerson, Entrican, Farris, Heffin, Hunzaker/Hunsaker, Henry,
Linder, Molohon, Myers, Nance, Newton, Owens, Peak, Plumbee, Rollins,
Shetton, Simmons, Simpson, Smith, Wheeler, Winston and Youngblood.
Subscribers to the JP, Calloway, Graves or Fulton lists can obtain a copy
of either, or both files, by sending a request directly to me(not to the
lists, please)Both of these files are available in rich text format or
Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Because of the table attributes in one file and
the general formatting in the other, it was necessary that rich text format
be used. Any word processor will open an RTF file.
Please specify either the "Antioch Church File" or the "Pensioners" file,
or "Both Files" when sending a request. The file(s) will be sent as a rich
text attachment to an e-mail message, unless PDF is specified. The entire
file(s) will be sent. Time constraints do not permit me to go into the
files and extract data on individuals.
Your continuing assistance in not resending this entire message back to me
with the request is, as always, appreciated.
Tomorrow, we will focus on Ballard County.

We are inviting Y O U to participate in our McDADE-DNA
Project which we are expecting to be a valuable asset to our
paper trail research to show how our various McDADE lines
throughout the world may be connected thru :
1. your direct participation if you are a direct line McDADE male
descendant (direct male in your McDADE line all the way back to your
earliest known McDADE ancestor, including yourself) by participating in
the DNA testing.
2. your indirect participation (because you are or became a male
descendant of a McDADE daughter at some point in your McDADE line OR are
a McDADE daughter) by finding the fathers, brothers, uncles, nephews,
cousins that are direct line male McDADE descendants in your family and
urging them to participate under 1. above.
First, if it is at all possible, please participate in the 25 marker
test as this gives us a much better analysis of the known, possible,
or potential relationships.
Each and every participant is an important link in connecting our various
lines whether our ancestor was an early arrival in the 1600's or 1700's
or a later arrival in the 1800's or 1900's in Australia, Canada,
England, New Zealand, USA, etc. Our ancestors may have come directly
from Scotland or via Ireland, but with McDADE as the primary spelling,
we are probably all cousins in one way or another.
You may contact me at any time if you have questions. There is no medical
connection with any of this, just a check on the male DNA markers that
are passed father to son almost intact for many generations, with an
It is especially important to have a male participate (regardless of age)
if the male is the only or one of two male McDADE descendants of a
father, grandfather or great grandfather. Unfoutunately, the daughters
can not do this for this particular easy, efficient, and economical test.
I hope you will participate in the launching of this great project for
our McDADE's everywhere.
Please inform others you feel should be contacted or send me names,
e-mail addresses, and or snail addresses and phone numbers for other
I can't wait to see how our markers reveal our potential relationships,
especially if many of you will select the 25 plus marker DNA test.
