      Surname: BEAVERS, SHOOK, ROBINSON, HENNESSEE, GIBBS

      Kaye,

      Today I received a copy of records that my deceased aunt had kept for a number of years on our ancestors. You guessed it! Bingo! Below is the documentation she has recorded word by word.

      William SHOOK married Margaret ROBINISON on March 9, 1848 in Athens, TN. He was killed in the Civil War and is buried in Shilo Cemetary (Military Cemetary) near Memphis, TN.

      Margaret ROBINSON SHOOK lived in Athens, TN and was in the real estate business. She owned property in downtown Athens, which she sold for four dollars an acre. She is buried somewhere in Athens.

      Their children:

      1. Nellie SHOOK - married John David HENNESSEE in Athens, TN. Occupation - Methodist Minister. He was born November 10, 1849 in Murphy, NC, and died June 22, 1921 in Athens, TN. Nellie died within a year of marriage, and John David HENNESSEE then married Nellie's sister Lee Ann SHOOK.

      2. Lee Ann SHOOK - born July 24, 1859, died September 29, 1896. Married John David HENNESSEE November 18, 1875 in Athens, TN.

      3. Elizabeth (Lizzy) SHOOK - Married James L. BEAVERS, son of Hiram BEAVERS. John BEAVERS was the brother of Hiram BEAVERS.

      4. Tobe SHOOK - Married Sallie GIBBS February 26, 1878 in Athens, TN.I do believe we have a connection. What's the chances of two Elizabeth SHOOKs marrying two James BEAVERS from McMinn county, TN around the same time peroid?

      Hope this has helped!

      Judy [3]
