Thanks for your info. I have been able to identify all of the Gammills listed on the plaque.

William Dixon
Did this William Dixon leave a will or estate papers? If so, in what county?

RE: 67534979 (Lorenzo D. Toney)
Thank you for your help. For some reason that was not among the data bases that were showing up when looking for Lorenzo. I appreciate your help.

67534979 (Lorenzo D. Toney)
Hi, My question about Lorenzo Toney is about whether he was Union or Confederate? The information I find on the Arkansas 1st Infantry Battalion shows it as being Confederate. I am just wanting to verify this and add it to my sources so I would certainly appreciate your help. I don't know if I am just overlooking something or what the problem is. Lorenzo Toney was married to my 3rd half great aunt.

Thank you so much for all the work you do. I know it is not an easy task.

RE: Francis Wallace
As far as I know, she is not a daughter of Thomas, there is no mention of her in the family Bible where all the other children are named.

RE: Thank you!

Thank you!
Thank you very much for all of the info you provide! It has been a great help to me doing my research for my family tree. I think you and I may be somehow related. Jacob B Freeman was my great great great grandfather who married Amanda Dixon. One of their daughters, Nancy Caroline Freeman married William Leroy Bivans (my great great grandfather) and their son William Marshall Bivans (my great grandfather) married Lula Gilbert who gave birth to my grandfather, Ford Wayne Bivans.

RE: Dr, Abe Black
Thanks for the note. I had not seen that before, just wish it had expounded more on Dr. Abe Black. Thomas Hill Black had five sons, Wm. Spencer, Abraham L., John N., and James K.P. and an infant who died shortly after birth. Wm. Spencer is my 2nd great grandfather, Abe L. born 1833 died 1864, John N. 1838 to 1862, J.K.P. (doctor) 1840-1920. If Abraham L. was a doctor, I found no record of it. According to the Black Bible, Abe L. and John N. both died during Civil War, JKP also served in the war but made it home to become a doctor and lived a long life. Possibly the Dr. Abe Black Turnbo spoke of belonged to a different Tom? Or perhaps his memory was faulty? To my knowledge, JKP was the only doctor in that family. At least the only one I found records to prove he was a doctor.

Warner Cemetery
Hello, I am interested in the resources you used to detail the information concerning the Warner Cemetery in Bedford County TN. You mention family records. I am a Warner and have been researching my family for the past 15 years. By chance I happened upon your posting on Find a Grave. I do believe the my Warner family is the same group or relatives of the ones interred in the cemetery in Bedford County. The names are the same. The thing that throws me is that this same group owned land in Carroll and Perry County and Henderson County. I loose them after the Civil War. Thanks for any insight you might provide.
