RE: James Askew Miller
I show Matilda as buried in an unmarked grave next to Robert, but James died abt 1890 with no burial location listed.

RE: Matilda Tiritha Carroll
Other researchers show her name as "Tivitha" or "Tobitha" or "Tabitha."

If your mother-in-law is sure it was "Tiritha," then I don't have any documentation showing it was one of these other names either.

RE: Bessie Martin Murphee
Hi, One of Bessie's brothers, Robert Hatton Martin, is buried in Brush Creek (Smith Co), which is why I was searching for their parents - Reuben and Elizabeth. I added another sister, Mary Martin Kelly - #174263217, and have included all of the census data that I could find in her bio section. Elizabeth was probably married before she married Reuben - hard to determine. Elizabeth was a 'Herndon' when she married Reuben, but her maiden name MIGHT have been Washington or Asington (sp?/).

Reuben's parents were George & Martha, but I could not locate their marriage record. Based on the 1850 census, they must have lived in Illinois before coming to TN. Hope this helps.

RE: Sam Woodside question
Hi, I don't have any addl info on the Woodside family. I've been researching people that are buried in the Brush Creek cemetery in Smith County. A Blackburn was married to Edward Gothard, a brother to Sam Woodside's wife. It's like a patchwork quilt - all the connected families.

Sam Woodside question
Hi - his parents are correct based on his death cert (in his bio section). Is his wife incorrect ?
