Joseph D BORDERS still remains somewhat of a mystery to our family. Still 100% unsure of who his parents were. I have my own theory. I have John and Rachel (Unknown) BORDERS as his parents.I have John as the son of Peter and Esther (Unknown) BORDERS.
He was first married to Mary C RIPPY on 7 NOV 1867. They had 9 children.
He was second married to Amanda/Armandy J WIGENTON on 17 FEB 1891 Sumner County, TN. They had at least on child, Nettie May who married Gilbert SHOCKLEY.
His headstone has never been located. I have a copy of his Death Certificate which gives Maple Grove as his place of burial.
