This is what I've found but the way Ancestry handles the posts, it's virtually undreadable. This will come through better on the Weakley County Mailing List or your private email. If I had more information regarding your grandmother, Maude or her brother John, I might be able to find more. I will send copies of the documents through your private email if you have trouble finding them yourself.
