My fourth grandfather was William W. Ashford, and he married Sarah?
They had J.Willis Ashford, he married Nancy Massey.
They had Susan R.Ashford, and she married Johm McCracken.
They had Nancy Abigail McCracken, and she married my greatgrandfather Christopher Columbus Tomerlin.
Chris and Nancy had my grandfather, who was an identical twin. Names were McKelvey and McKelsey Tomerlin.
Would like any info. on this line and any picture or historical information.
On the other side was Moses Tomerlin he married ?
He had Freeman Tomerlin and he married Rhoda Daughtery,
they had William Tomerlin and he married Nancy Ann Tipppet(she had been previously married to Frederick Rottenberry,but he died while she was pregnant with there child, also named William.)Nancy and William had, I believe nine children and My great grandfather Christopher was one.
He married Nancy Abigail McCracken.
Guy Chancellor married Lois Gifford.
Lois Gifford was orphaned at four years old along with her sister Nina.She is now 86 yrs. old and is not sure of her exact birthdate, but believes it to be a couple of weeks before Christmas. She thinks her dad's name is Soloman.
Guy Chancellor's mother was Lela Arizona Brown(or Brownfeather)she was also orphaned as a child and no very little about her...only that she is Cherokee/Chauktaw
All these people were from the Southern States and span accross the country.
I would greatly appreciate any information and History on these people.
Nancy Pollard, was related to Lela somehow and believed to be in Telaquah(Cherokee Nation)
Please e-mail me. I am currently putting together a book for my children, so anything might get me closer.
Janie(and all the other names too.)

I have info. on Ashford lines. Think we are related. Have
been looking for forth grandfather's first name for about
20 years. I have just started working on genealogy again.
My line is( from forward back- Elmo Ashford, Charles T.
Ashford, Josiah Ashford, Willis W. Ashford, Willis Ashford
(who married Nancy Massey). Willis and Susan were brother and sister. Willis' mother was Sarah Pleasant,
who was married to a Mr. Ashford in all records.
I read that your query was made in refence to Sumner Co.
TN: however all records I have found and have been given
research on shows to have taken place in Giles Co, TN.
North Carolina, and/or in Virginia.
The records I mentioned are from Mary Ashford Skagfjord
of San Francisco, CA. She has the family Bible from James Pleasant Ashford, brother of Willis Ashford.
Please email me. I would love to exchange info.

Re: william w. ashford & sarah pleasant
I am not sure if it is the same Elmo Ashford, but my grandfather's name was Elmo Eddie Ashford, who married Edith Templet Ashford and they had 2 children, Arnell and Lennis, who is my father. From what I know, my grandfather lived in Mississippi for a while, then came to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. That is where my father and I live. Let me know if this helps
