George was born 1841-42. If census records can be trusted, her mother was "Lurtie." I THINK (again going by census records) that George is the son of one John S. Rust and wife Nancy. I know that the Rust family has been researched way back to the 1600s. I wonder if my Rust family is connected to Jerimiah Turner RUST of Carroll Co. Any help would be great! Thanks Jeri

BRUCE, FURGERSON

I have been looking for my ggrandparents, JOHN W. FURGERSON AND MAHULDA BRUCE FURGERSON, born in Tennessee in 1814 and 1816.  I have recently come across some information that indicates that Mahulda may have had some connection to a CHARLES BRUCE who owned property in Carrol County. His will was probated in February, 1832.   The Charles Bruce that I am looking for fought in the Revolutionary War in Guilford County, N.C., and died at the age of 99 years. Some of his children are said to have been given land grants in Kentucky. My grandparents moved to Hopkins County, Ky from somewhere in Tennessee and we have been trying to trace their ancestors without success.  We have good reason to believe that Mahulda was associated with these Bruces from Carrol County. If you have any information at all about this family, particularly about the children (according to the will they are listed as Polly, Abnor, George, Charles, Alfred, Felix, Betsy, Prissey, Peeples, Becky and Aggy) I would very much appreciate hear

I am looking for any descendants of Stephen PATE (c. 1765/70--1839) and his wife Honor HENEGAN-SWEENY of Richmond Co., NC and Carroll o., TN.  The PATEs came to Tennessee during the 1830's.  Some of them were in Weakley Co., and some in Carroll County.   The children and grandchildren included Elizabeth Pate m. Nathaniel HAWTHORNE, Hannah Pate m. Elias ELY, Elijah S. PATE (1791-1880), Stephen S. PATE, Elisha S. PATE (b. 1801), Samuel D. PATE (b. c. 1810), Nathaniel PATE, Richmond L. PATE and Thoroughgood PATE.  I need help
determining which of these were children and which were grandchildren of Stephen.  I think Tennessee records may be of some assistance there. I think there also may have been other heirs.  My ancestor was Samuel PATE (c. 1760-1850) of Richmond County, Stephen's brother, who also married Honor's sister.  I have considerable information on the PATE as well as the HENEGAN-SWEENY connection.

TAYLOR

Does anyone have access to the tax records of Carroll Co or the land records c1840? I have an ancestor, A.W.Taylor who died in Gibson Co c1847 but was in the 1840 Carroll Co census. I need to find out this mans 1st name so I can trace him back to NC. The only records I have refer to him as A.W.Taylor. If anyone can look this up and tell me what years he paid taxes in Carroll Co, possibly 1832-1840's, and when he bought his land I would be grateful. Hopefully a legal description of the land will allow me to find out if he used his Full name when purchasing the land. If so, then maybe I can find out where he's buried as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I would be happy to return the favor. Kashlyn Covington, Las Vegas, NV

GILBERT

I am hoping that someone can help me in trying to research my kinship as stated above. This letter was written by my uncle WIllian Henry GILBERT of Detroit Michigan several years ago. This appears to be the history of the Gilbert family in Carroll County TN. In the 1800's Aron GILBERT Sr. son of Ike and Becky (Thomas) GILBERT, grandson of Brice and Louisa GILBERT was born. The date was October 29, 1881. This was 3 miles south of McKenzie, TN. The GILBERT name was given to us around 1850, when Benjamin Prince GILBERT brought Brice GILBERT who was a slave. Because of his versatilities he paid $2000.00 for him.
Brice GILBERT, married Lousia GILBERT in the 1850's. She was a slave and the property of Benjamin P. and Mary Louise GILBERT, by virtue of an inheirtance from Mary Chilton grandmother of Mary Louise GILBERT. Brice and Louisa GILBERT had two childern. Ike born 1859, died 1942. Martha, born 1861, died 1897. Ike married Becky (Thomas) GILBERT in 1879. She was the daughter of George and Martha Thomas
