Hello, I have also heard the same story of he three I married women. I am the great granddaughter of Emerson Etheridge (Buck) Maness born somewhere between 1828-1849. He died 12/28/1928 and is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Lexington, Henderson Co. Tn. He was married to Nancy Bishop 11/11/1865 died sept. 1944 also buried at Oak Grove. They had sons, Willie, Lee, Howard, Luther, daughters, Fannie Mae, Nancy, Bertha, Daisy, Allie and a son Greenie that died at 5 yrs old. He may have had a brother Eller who married Annie Becky Reynolds 1864-1952. We can not seem to get beyond Emerson Etherige (Buck) to his parents. Ay help would be appreciated as I have not found the names of the children born to Sam Hays (Stob) & Wence or Eliza. I only have names for the ones born to Latisha and not sure if that list is complete.
