I am looking for anyone connected to:

Thomas' father died in 1862 during the Civil War. His mother moved the family from Franklin County, VA to Tazwell County and was there by the 1870 Census. By 1880 Susan had move the family to Ross County, Ohio. Thomas stayed in Virginia, married and had at least two children because he was in Tazwell in the 1880 census.

Hi Sharon. I'm Dale Goodwin. I went to high school in Tazewell with your uncle Hugh. My Mother was Bessis Lee Lawson Goodwin. Her Mother was Amanda Biddie Caudill, who I believe was a first cousin to Reese Pucket. Amanda's Mother was Martha French.There is a ton of brick walls in that French line. Reese was county road superintendent of
Tazewell Co. I can remember him coming around once a year to grade the roads. I haven't lived in Tazewell CO since 1953, but still have a bunch of nieces and nephews still living there. I forwarded your post to Wanda Mudd, who has a lot of info about Reese Pucket. Dale Goodwin Salem OR

Do or did you know an Ovella French? My mother used to work cleaning house for her and her family. I am not sure I spelled her name correct. Reese Puckett was my grandpa . He died before I was born and I never knew him or grandma Alice Turley Puckett.. It is my understanding, Grandma,died in 1957 the same year my brother (Buddy) was born. Did you ever hear of any of the other Puckett's?
Mom's sisters are, Martha Pauline Roberts(Puckett) and (catherine)Katherine Welloman(Terry) (Puckett) she had been married to a (Terry) once.

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I didn't know until I started this that my grandpa was not Rees and Nancy ,were not his full parents. Then some one replied to another posting and told me . When you are growing up you don't pay any attention to this stuff. Now, I am very interested. I grew up in and around Tip Top and Bluefield ,Va.I have lived in Texas since 1970.How far back have you gotten.?I just started in April.I have gotten back to James and Catherine, father of Rees.I will be glad to hear from you again. Dolores
