    Have attached the first two generations of the progenitor, Thomas, Sr. Maybe


    1. OPPS! David, there are no files attached and no data included on Thomas, Sr. I'm sure there will be new info. Would you please resend them?

    Sue


    Hi David,

    2. Thank you for the response. I surely wasn't trying to criticize you. I've just seen some of the Wiseman info about my family that is 100% wrong. And it's in print and is quoted. Like my grandfather's name: "Thacker Millard Turner." Then it says he was called "Thackery." That is absolutely a "Never happened." He was called "Old Thack" because my uncle was Thacker, Jr. There are people that I write to that accept the Wiseman book as gospel and the researchers as faultless. However, no one in my family was contacted regarding the book. The researchers surely did their best, but the errors frustrate me--especially when I see them on websites and I cannot get the people to correct them because they have the Wiseman book.

    On pg. 265 of the Wiseman Family and Allied Lines, it reads,

    "Thackery M. Turner b. 16 Nov 1890. [Thacker Millard Turner--birth date is OK.] It continues, "Grace A. Turner [Grace HELEN Turner]. They were married on the 25th of Nov 1914--not the 24th.

    As for the children of Micajah Terry Gillentine and Nancy Amanda Hennessee:

    1. Elizabeth Melvina AKA "Sis" b. 1844/5 + Audley Wiseman

    2. John Parker b. 2 Nov 1846 + Sarah Jane Richards--I correspond with a direct descendant of this line and have a xerox box full of documentation

    3. Harriet Melvina b. ca 1846-- I also have that she married 1 Jul 1863 in Warren Co., TN, but I don't know to whom.

    4. Rachel Jane b. 10 Dec 1849 married Charles Barnes, s/o Shoot "Esquire" Hillis and Elizabeth Ann "Betsey" Barnes. This is were Barnes's cousins actually stop speaking to each other. Please don't quote me about this.

    5. Martha Ann b. 10 Dec 1852 + Andrew Jackson Hennessee--her first cousin

    6. Mary Naomi b. 23 Mar 1855 + George Washington Wiseman

    7. Nancy Elizabeth b. 4 Jul 1857 who married first on 5 May 1877 to Patrick Moore Barnes, 9 years her senior. Patrick is the s/o John B. Barnes and Nancy Vickers. This must have been a very unhappy marriage for Nanny and she married my great-grandfather Thomas Elliott Turner. I have photos of both of them when they were young and I have never seen a more beautiful woman or handsome man. It must have been love at first sight.

    8. Thomas S. b. 2 Jan 1860 + Phoebe Earls

    9. William Mortimer "Mort" b. 1861 + Maxine Jane "Maxie" Martin.

    10. Margaret b. 26 Oct 1862 + James Irving "Tuck" Hillis. One of my Gillentine cousins is also a Hillis and a wonderful source of Hillis information.

    11. Samantha b. 26 Aug 1863 + William Clayborn Jennings.

    Back to the errors in the Wiseman book about my Grandfather Thacker Millard Turner's siblings:

    Children of Nancy Elizabeth Gillentine + Thomas Elliott Turner

    1. Nancy Lee Turner b. 1880 before my grandparents married and died in 1881. My 2nd great-grandparents, Micajah Terry Gillentine and Nancy Amanda Hennessee did not attend the child's funeral and this broke my great-grandmother's heart.

    2. Octa Lou Turner b. 20 Apr 1882 + Richard Newton "Newt" Buckley

    3. Kitty Ann Turner b. 10 Feb 1883 who married in 1904 to Orville Edwin Bunger b. 18 Dec 1887. My Uncle Orville is my Grandmother Grace Helen Bunger's brother. Three Turner's married three Bunger's. At one time, five Bunger's were engaged to 5 Turner's, but two of the engagements were broken.

    4. Henry Terry Lee Turner b. 1 Dec 1887 + Jim Belle Fasher  

    5. Essie Pearl Turner 11 Jan 1889 married in 1910 to Evart Lynn Bunger b. 4 Dec 1880. Please note the spelling of my Uncle Evart's first name. This is the second Turner-Bunger marriage.

    6. Thacker Millard Turner b. 16 Nov 1890 + Grace Helen Bunger b. 21 Aug 1888. This is the third Turner-Bunger marriage and these are my grandparents.

    7. Mary Jane "Mollie" Turner b. 14 Feb 1893 + Raymond Lewis Whatley

    8. Helen Victoria Turner b. 19 Aug 1895 + Ernest Clifton Reeves. [two e's in Reeves]

    9. Franklin Claudius [not Cloud!] Turner b. 20 Feb 1898 m. Fanny May "Major" Anderson.

    Well, this is good for today. I did write to Francis Gill who wrote another Gillentine book and my immediate family in that book is in error. I'm terrified when I put my info on disks for distribution that I'll have people pulling out their hair from my mistakes. At least there should be some good points to begin conversations.

    Thanks again for sharing info. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Other Events:

    • Occupation: Merchant

    Notes:

    Squire John C. Gillentine #3332 born NOV 16 1797, Grainger Co., TN, occupation merchant, married (1) MAY 02, 1816, in White Co., TN, Mary "Polly" Martin #3333, born MAR 15 1790 in Virginia, STB daughter of a Martin father and a Ballard mother, died SEP 23 1832, (Warren Co., in Van Buren Co., TN where John had moved after leaving White Co., TN.

    My 3rd great-grandmother , Mary "Polly" Martin could only have died in White Co. or Van Buren Co. and I believe it was in Van Buren Co. that she died. I have no records of John in Warren Co. except that he built a turnpike there in 1847. He also built one in Van Buren Co. in 1847. He and his son Capt. Nicholas Martin Gillentine built turnpikes together until Nicholas left for Texas.

    From descendant Walter L. Hillis who maintains the cemetery where John and many of his family are buried: John came to Van Buren Co., TN early in eighteen hundred. He was the first Chairman of the Van Buren Co. Court. He and Harrison are buried in the Gillentine Cemetery located in the Piney Community of Van Buren Co. Joseph Arthur is buried in the Seitz Cemetery also in the Piney community.

    I have been maintaining the Gillentine Cemetery for the last few years. There are not many men descendants of Joseph Arthur left. There are not any Gillentine's left in Van Buren County, TN that I know of. If I can be of help, let me know. ), married (2) 27-NOV-1834, in (Van Buren Co.)

    ...was one of the first settlers of the historic little town of Spencer. He figured largely in the affairs of his county. John Gillentine served as a justice of the peace for many years and was chairman of the county court for a long period of time. He was one of the promoters of Burritt College and the first president of the board of trustees of that college. He was a public-spirited man and did much to promote the civic affairs of his town and county.

    John Gillentine was reared in the Baptist faith. He belonged to that branch of the Baptists known in that country as "Hardshell Baptists." The Hardshell Baptist Church withdrew fellowship from him because he permitted the Separate Baptists to hold meetings in his house. After being dismissed from the Baptist Church he studied the Bible, and later became a member of the church of Christ. He reared his family in the fear of God and in the knowledge of his truth.

    The Gillentine family had left to it a rich legacy of a Christian father and mother.

    On April 24, 1843, John and Terry Gillentine sold a 96 acre tract to William Moore (who was a member and probably an elder at the Big Fork Baptist Church). This was part of the 139 acre tract on which Nicholas Gillentine (father of John & Terry) settled some time before 1812 (see map), on which the Big Fork Baptist Church was probably situated.

    John married Mary "Polly" Martin 2 May 1816, White County, Tennessee. Mary (daughter of FNU Martin and FNU Ballard) was born 15 Mar 1790, Virginia; died 23 Sep 1832, Van Buren County, Tennessee. [Group Sheet]

    TERRY-GILLENTINE CONNECTION
    SueTiffany@AOL.com

    I am looking for the parents of JANE ELIZABETH TERRY (or ELIZABETH JANE TERRY) was born ca 1777 possibly in Anson Co., North Carolina. I believe her mother's name was Elizabeth LEAKE/LAKE and that Jane was named for her and that Jane went by her middle name. Jane married NICHOLAS GILLENTINE born ca 1775 in Halifax, VA. (Bible records of his and JANE'S son TERRY GILLENTINE).

    Several records show JANE near or in the same town or mention her in the same paragraph as JOSEPH TERRY and JESSE TERRY in Tennessee (The Records of Pittsylvania County), but they do not state their relationship, if any.

    JANE ELIZABETH TERRY died 1 May 1859 in McNairy Co., Tennessee.
    NICHOLAS GILLENTINE died 8 May 1834 in McNairy Co., TN. Nicholas fought in the War of 1812. His parents were WILLIAM G. GILLENTINE and MARGARET HURT. (William Albert Gillentine's Bible) JANE ELIZABETH TERRY AND NICHOLAS GILLENTINE had the following children:

    1. JOHN GILLENTINE, Squire b. 16 Nov 1797, Grainger Co., TN m. MARY"POLLY" MARTIN.
    2. TERRY GILLENTINE b. 17 Apr 1799 in Van Buren Co., TN m. SARAH "SALLY" LEWIS.
    3. ELIZABETH GILLENTINE b. 5 Dec 1800 in TN m. JESSE HASTON.
    4. MARGARET GILLENTINE b. 8 Dec 1802 in TN m. ROBERT GAMBLE.
    5. MARY "POLLY" GILLENTINE b. 21 Feb 1805 in Spencer, TN m. BARKLEY M. BALLARD.
    6. RICHARD LEAK GILLENTINE (LEAK is a family name, but I haven't been able to connect with it yet.) b. 29 Jan 1806 in White Co., TN m. SIDNEY LIANA STOVALL.
    7. MARTHA GILLENTINE b. 12 Apr 1808 m. BENJAMIN JAMES SANDLIN.
    8. JOSEPH NICHOLAS GILLENTINE b. 18 Feb 1810 in White Co. TN. m. LOUISA BRUMBELOW.
    9. JANSEE (JANE) GILLENTINE b. 22 Dec 1811 d. 8 Jan 1812.
    10. ANNA GILLENTINE b. 9 Sept 1813, TN m. WILLIAM Y. LEE.
    11. SUSANNA J. GILLENTINE b. 27 Jan 1815 m. the REVEREND JESSE EVERETT HICKMAN.
    12. RACHEL GILLENTINE b. 16 Jul 1817 m. JOHN COLEMAN.
    13. SARAH SALLY GILLENTINE b. 29 Nov 1819, White Co., TN m. WILLIAM INGRAM.
    14. WILLIAM THROCKMORTON GILLENTINE b. 29 Oct 1822 TN.

    I've searched for JANES's parents for 40 years (since I was 12 years old).
    Some researchers have "suggested" JOSEPH TERRY and JUDITH CRAWFORD,
    JAMES TERRY m. to ELIZABETH LEAK, RICHARD LEAK TERRY, and JOHN TERRY who died in White Co., TN in 1831 as parents for JANE.

    I know the family has to be one who married into the LEAKS as that is a given name for several generations that follow Jane Elizabeth TERRY. Every given name in the family of JAMES TERRY and ELIZABETH LEAKE'S family is found in JANE ELIZABETH and NICHOLAS GILLENTINE's family. If you have any information that would help me connect my grandmother to her parents, I would be most appreciative. Also the NATHANIEL TERRY line that is married into the LEAKE line is possible.

    The information I have on JANE ELIZABETH is quite documented. Mr. EUGENE WISEMAN and his chief researcher, MARY ELIZABETH BARNES, GILLENTINE cousins to me, are very conscientous about their data.

    "NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, born 1776 in Halifax Co, died 8 May 1834 in NcNairy Co., TN. He married on 20 Oct 1796 to ELIZABETH JANE TERRY. (She was born ca 1777 and died 5 Jan 1839 in McNairy County, TN). The migration of this family can be documented by use of census and tax list records. In the 1799 tax list of Grainger Co, TN we find NICHOLAS, along with his CHISUM cousins. In 1804 NICHOLAS is in Knox Co., TN and by 1807 he, along with JESSE TERRY (kin to his wife?) and ELIJAH CHISUM is in White County, TN. The following account is from Memorable Historical Accounts of White County (TN) and Area, by E. G. Rogers (page 3) "The first court was held in the house of JOSEPH TERRY who also provided the convenience of a small log jail. In 1809, however, the Legislature passed as act establishing Sparta and providing that it should be the county seat of White County. Commissioners were elected to lay off the town. These were .... and NICHOLAS GILLENTINE."

    The 1820 Census of White Co., TN lists NICHOLAS GILLENTINE with 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female 16 to 18, 1 female 26 to 45, and one female over 45. By 1825 the Hopewell Baptist Church near Danville, Alabama membership lists includes NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, SR., JANE GILLENTINE, RICHARD LEAK GILLENTINE, NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, JR., MARTHA GILLENTINE, and ANNE GILLENTINE.

    The 1830 Census of McNairy Co., TN gives NICHOLAS GILLENTINE 1 male 5 to 10, 1 male 20 to 30, and 1 male 50 to 60, 2 females 10 to 15, 1 female 50 to 60 and 1 female 60 to 70 (this last probably his mother MARGARET who did not die until 1834). The records of the Bethel Church of Christ in White Co., TN indicate that part of NICHOLAS's family remained in that area, since JOHN GILLENTINE, NICHOLAS's oldest son, and John's wife MARY are members of that church in 1825.

    The children of NICHOLAS AND ELIZABETH JANE (TERRY) GILLENTINE FROM THE TERRY GILLENTINE BIBLE are: JOHN GILLENTINE, CATHERYN GILLENTINE, ELIZABETH GILLENTINE, ELLEANOR GILLENTINE, ANNE GILLENTINE, etc."

    The Bible also shows births, marriages, and death dates. NICHOLAS's grandfather NICHOLAS GILLINGTON died testate leaving two wills and naming his children and some of his grandchildren. I have a transcript of his Will written and registered in Halifax County, VA, dated October 21, 1772.
    From the court records of Van Buren County (6 Apr 1840 to 3 Aug 1840) it is learned that the General Assembly of the United States established the County of Van Buren, and authorized Justices of the peace. JOHN GILLENTINE was appointed commissioner for the town of Spencer. He was chairman of the county Court for a long period, helped establish Burrett College and was president of its board of trustees. (from Burrett, our Alma Mater, by EFFIE GILLENTINE, pg. 22)

    Another cousin has access to the Bible Records of JOHN GILLENTINE, son of JANE and NICHOLAS and their children are again given. In King William County, VA NICHOLAS GILLENTINE (NICHOLAS GILLENTINE m. to ELIAZBETH JANE TERRY'S grandfather), Capt. THOMAS TERRY, Capt. JAMES TERRY, JOHN HURT, POWELL'S ford adj Maulden and Norment's line. NICHOLAS is again mentiond in Caroline Co., VA 1733/34 with THOMAS TERRY, JOSEPH TERRY AND JUDITH (CRAWFORD) TERRY.

    In 1740 NICHOLAS surveyor of road. In 1742 Caroline Co., NICHOLAS and wife, acknowledge their release of land to SAMUEL NORMENT, JAMES COLLINS, GEORGE TRIBBLE, JOHN MACGREGO, THOMAS TERRY AND JOHN HUBBARD. Amelia Co., VA 1743, NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, JOHN AND ANN BROWN, RICHARD ECHOLES, SAMUEL TERRY, HANCE HENDRICK, ELISHA ESTES, ABRAHAM HURT, THOMAS PREWET, STEPHEN COLLINS, BENJAMIN HENDRICK, JOHN CHISUM, JOHN HURT, WILLIAM ECHOLES, WILLIAM GOOCH, SQ. JOSEPH TERRY, JOHN GILLENTINE, ANN GILLENTINE. JOHN GILLENTINE appointed surveyor of road.

    Halifax Co, VA 1752 JOHN GUILLINTINE, RICHARD ECHOLLS, JAMES TERRY, Antrim Parish records; 1753 NATHANIEL TERRY, in 1754 JOHN GILLINGTON resigns his vestrymanship (page 124 of Vestry Book of Antrim Parish of Halifax Co., VA.
    Then part of a page is missing--it goes on JOSEPH COLLINS, SPILLSBEE, then
    JOHN GILLENTINE'S will, ISAAC MARTIN, JOHEPH ECKOLS, BENJAMIN HUBBARD, ELIZABETH TRIBBLE. In 1781 JOSEPH TERRY, MOSES TERRY, JAMES LEEK, CHAMP TERRY.

    Amelia Co, VA 1754 JOEL HURT came into court and chose GEORGE BOOKER for guardian, together with NICHOLAS GILLINGTINE, his security record bond (Order book 3 p. 176). WILLIAM HILLSMAN, JANE HENDRICK. 1755 at a court held Mar 27, 1755 JOHN HURT, orphan of JOHN HURT chose NICHOLAS GUILLINTON as his guardian (order book 4 p. I) WILLIAM HILLSMAN, WILLIAM ECHOLES.

    Halifax Co., VA 1775 William and Susanna Gillentine to Moza Hurt of Bedford Co., VA 1776 Halifax Co., NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, son of WILLIAM and MARGARET (HURT) GILLENTINE m. ELIZABETH JANE TERRY.

    1743 Amelia Co., VA Deed of land, from NICHOLAS GUILLINTINE to JOHN GUILLINTINE, ABRAHAM ECHOLLES. 1771 Amelia Co, VA Will book I, page 71 first will for NICHOLAS GILLINGTON Nov 2, 1771.

    These are court records researched by Mary Elizabeth Barnes. Perhaps this information sheds some light on JANE's parents. It certainly establishes a long relationship of the GILLENTINES with the TERRY family. I know the family has to be one who married into the Leaks as that is a given name. Every given name in James Terry and Elizabeth Leake's family is found in Jane Elizabeth and Nicholas Gillentine's family. If you have any information that would help me connect my grandmother to her parents, I would be most appreciative if you would share it with me. Also the Nathaniel Terry line that is married into the Leak line is possible.

    Do you have any TERRYS in your files? I would like to receive them because once I find Jane's parents, I'll probably need them! Any help? Ideas?

    It's all appreciated!

    Thanks, SueTiffany@AOL.com

    Wes Dodson identifies him as "John". Note the age disparity between him and Lucy. Perhaps this was a second marriage for him. Think it likely that the ENGLAND & WILCHER families pioneered Middle Tennessee in tandem, circa 1800...

    Hello
    Got your second letter with 2 attachments. First letter had no data?
    First attachment on Burlison is great. Excellent documentation and footnotes. 2nd attachment somehow is made up of scrambled attachment I sent you with a few lines starting with James Chastain.
    Any idea why Volley Burlison Chastain left her mothers land and headed south with her children during Civil War? Relatives in GA?

    Tracked John Chastain, father of James and Miles?, to Charlotte Co. VA
    where he married "Polly" Bottom in 1806. His brother? Isham was there too. John and Isham"s parents are Rene Chastain and Martha Isham in Buckingham Co VA. Several John Chastains found but only one with a brother Isham. Miles Chastain was named after grandfather Miles Bottoms also in 1810 Charlotte Co VA census. Do you have this info?

    I have the Warren Co 1850 census GED file from the web. Who was Mary Chastain married to Earles related to? THANKS AGAIN, PHIL
