I found where Andrew Thomas Cleek was married to Minnie Elizabeth Posey. I cannot find where Andrew Jackson Cleek was married to Minnie Elizabeth Posey. Andrew Jackson Cleek was married to Cenith Florence (Cenie) Agee. A.J. Cleek was my great grandfather. Neither my grandmother nor grandfather has any knowledge of A.J. Cleek being married to Minnie Elizabeth Posey.

My 2nd/3rd cousin JD Cleek out of Kingsport TN/Sullivan county, has done a lot of research on the Cleek/Click family history. You can reach him on Facebook. Also there is a reunion in June as well, he can provide you that information as well.

dcleek - your grandad's parents were Thomas Walker Cleek and Lelia Brown. TW Cleek's parents were Shadrach Walker Cleek and Amanda Jane Cleek (first cousins). Shadrach's father was Joseph Cleek and Amanda's father was William Cleek, brothers. I am descended from Shade and Amanda.

You are right Andrew Thomas Cleek was married to Minnie Elizabeth Posey, this was posted when I first started hunting down my ancestors, But there were a few Andrew Jackson Cleeks in the area, The one I anm looking for was the father of Andrew, making sure he is the same one that married M J Posey. A lot of my family history is hard to find. My grandmother was Janie Tennessee Cleek, one of Andrew's daughters.
