Hi Helen,

I've been researching this Damron family lately and have a question for you.

I have found Social Security Applications and Claims Index record (and more) that states Lilly's maiden name was Damron not Tackett, yet, it does mention at one time she was known as Tackett.

Can you help me out, as I show Lilly to be the daughter of Benjamin Harrison Damron and Ida Hopkins. It is possible, based on the record I reviewed, that she may have been married to a Tackett....??

Hmmmmm -- Here is everything I have on her.

Sorry Helen, but I need to ask - Is this cemetery gloce to Gatlinburg? In 1880, Mary J Cowden, husband James Cowden, and son Ausbern I Cowden are living in Gatlinburg area. The dates I have for her are: b. ca. 1849, died 14 Aug 1879. As the census takers were instructed to take down persons who had died by a certain date, and to omit babies born after a certain date, I think this may be a dead Mary Jane Cowden listed like she is living.

Hi. This MAY be Mary Jane (Roberts) Cowden, wife of James Cowden (b. ca. 1849 Sevier County, TN, d. ?), but I still haven't found his grave, either.

Thank you for the edit. It did say he was born at Wayland, Floyd Co.? and died at Garrett, Floyd Co. Not sure so I will let you make the call.

Thanks again, Diane
