Second response re John W. Childress, who was supposedly sheriff of Buchanan Co. for 40 years. Sorry I switched two of the names. It should have read: I am the daughter of John Bryan Childress, who was a son of James Harvey Childress, son of John W. Childress, son of Jessee Childress, son of Pleasant Childress/Childers, a revolutionary war vet. You don't say what info you want. What info do you have?
