HALL

I am searching for a James K. Polk Hall born Oct. 29, 1846 in Tenn. According to the Civil War records a James K.P. Hall enlisted in the Confederate army with men from Giles county. He later deserted in Giles county. The age is close to my relative but I do not know if it him or not. He had 2 brothers Wally and Dick. James moved to Texas and married there in 1874 and moved to Oklahoma in the late 1880's. I believe his brothers lived in Texas but am not sure. If this name is familiar will share what information I have.

Can anybody give me directions to Poplar Creek Cemetery near Prospect (Giles County), TN?

The Cherokee and Chickasaw tribes originally claimed the part of AL that is now Limestone Co., so very likely the Native American connection in her family was Cherokee or Chickasaw. People in her lineage (all from Limestone Co.) who might have been Indian include:
(A) William Henry HARDIN (1861-1942), (B) Amanda V. WALES (1868-1894), (C) James F. HARDIN (1822-1863), (D) Rebecca ROGERS (1831-1910),(E) Sarah HARDIN (b. abt 1802) or her unknown spouse – Sarah is in 1850 Census for Limestone Co. with four children, ages 7-27 in same household. There is an S.J. Hardin (b 1802) buried in the Milhous Cemetery, Ardmore, AL, who may be the same person as this Sarah Hardin.

HOWARD

I am searching for any children of Mary Magdalene HOWARD from Pulaski,Tennessee. My mother, Debra Jean HOWARD, was her born to Mary on August 23, 1959 in Giles County. We are searching for the other children that Mary Magdalene HOWARD had. We do not know if she was married at a later date or not. We were told that she died when she was in her 40's. Please notify me if you can locate any of my mother's brothers and sisters. The only person my mother could remember was a brother named William, but she was only three or four when she was seperated from the family so she can't be completely sure.
