I am new to researching and found old postings on rootsweb regarding information on the Medlen/Medlin Family.
I am searching for Medlen/Medlin in and around the White, Putnam, DeKalb Counties in Tennessee prior to 1850's. Specifically looking for ancestors of:
Almon Medlen/Medlin (b.abt. 1831)
(m. Elizabeth Childress b.abt. 1832)
Their children were (I have all info on children):
Owen Davis Medlen (1852)
William M. Medlen (1853)
Mary C. Medlen (1855)
Charlotte Susan Medlen (1857)
Minnie Sherman Medlen (1865)
If any of these names are within your documentation, please let me know. My brick wall has been Almon (possibly his father was Riley/Raleigh?). Surnames associated with my Medlens are Robinson, Hayes, Childress, Maxwell and Austin.
Any help appreciated.
