How does this Hord family connect to the Heard/Herd/Hurd vamily of Hawkins co, Tn.? Or does it connect? Many of this Heard/Herd/Hurd family have been transcribed as Hord, etc. Eldridge Hord/Herd was transcribed on the 1850 census by Treadway as Hord and the actual census looks like Herd. Also do you have any records as to where this Thomas Eldridge Hord lived or was on census records where? The children of the Thomas on the 1850 Hawkins co census do not match your list. You did not say when he left Hawkins co, Tn, or how you knew that he was born in Hawkins co, Tn. The McCollough and the Gray family intermarried and lived in the Hancock co, Tn area that was Claiborne
co at one time

It is difficult to distinguish between all of the Thomas Hords in the lines descending from John Hord of Essex County, Virginia.

I am not aware of any connection to the Heard/Herd/Hurd families of Hawkins County, Tennessee. This particular Thomas is not the Thomas Hord enumerated in the 1850 census of Hawkins County, Tennessee, for whom I don't know the parents, and therefore the children there enumerated would not match the above list. The Thomas Hord enumerated above (in the post to which you respond) is the the Thomas [Eldridge] Hord enumerated in the 1850 and 1860 census reports of Ruthersford County, Tennessee including the children there listed and confirmed elsewhere as well. "Eldridge" is not authenticated as his middle name although it is the middle name of one of his sons.

This Thomas Hord of Ruthersford County, Tennessee first married to Mary Elizabeth McCulloch is the Thomas, s/o William Hord and Nancy Gibbons of Hawkins County, Tennessee, identified in the "Genealogy of the Hord Family" written by Rev. Arnold Harris Hord and published 1898 by J.B. Lippincott Company of Philadelphia (please refer to pages 67, 73 and 86). Thomas Hord of Ruthersford County, Tennessee is also identified as s/o of William and Nancy Gibbons Hord in "Tennessee Records" written by Jeanette Tillotson Acklen and published 1933 by Cullom and Ghertner of Nashville.

Apparently, this Thomas removed from Hawkins County prior to his marriage to Mary Elizabeth McCulloch which occurred on 3 Apr 1834 in Ruthersford County, Tennessee. His father, William, born in Virginia, moved to Hawkins County in 1791 where he remained except for a few years in Claiborne County (abt 1803-1813) until his death on 15 May 1825 in Hawkins County. Thus it appears that this Thomas was born in New Canton, Hawkins County...and was a brother of the Eldridge Hord who remained in Hawkins County.

Thanks for the info! This Thomas of Hawkins also had a son named Eldridge age 3 in 1850. Eldrige Herd/Hord was head of another household. I feel fairly sure that these families are related. I have no connection to the Hord family, that I'm aware of. Just the Herd, Gray and McCullough families. Do you know which family lines your Gray and McCullough families were from?

Surnames: HORD, MCCULLOCH
Actually, the McCulloch and Gray families are not part of my family lines because I descend from William Hord, brother of Thomas [Eldridge] Hord. Thomas [Eldridge] Hord was one of my 4xG Uncles. So, I have not researched McCulloch and Gray lines.

However, it appears that Miss Mary Elizabeth McCulloch was the daughter of Benjamin McCulloch, b. 1789 Lunenburg, County, Virginia and a Sarah who may be Sarah Caswell nee Lytle and that this McCulloch line goes back to Alexander McCulloch of Ireland. The Rev. Arnold Harris Hord in his book does not name the mother of Miss Mary Elizabeth McCulloch although he names Benjamin McCulloch as her father. On page 112 of that book, he writes that Benjamin McCulloch Hord was a cousin of Confederate General Benjamin McCulloch (killed at the battle of Pea Ridge, Arkansas).

The Benjamin McCulloch who was father of Miss Mary Elizabeth McCulloch was born 16 Apr 1789 and died 10 Aug 1847 at McMinnville, Warren County, Tennessee. He was a grandson of the Alexander McCulloch b. 1715 in Ireland.

With regard to the birthplace of Thomas [Eldridge] Hord it may have been Claiborne County because his father moved to Claiborne from Hawkins at some unknown date in 1802 (a search of land records might provide a clue to the date) while Thomas was born on 31 Aug 1802. The father, William, returned to Hawkins County in 1813.
