I am steadily winding my way through the branches of my family tree.I feel I have gotten quite a lot accomplished over the years since I first began my research back in 1983.I will try and update this journal as often as I can with my current research findings.

Looking for Several Surnames in Different Counties and States

I am looking for the following people in the following locations:

ACORD Family- from Illinois and Tennessee,Missouri, namely descendants of Martin Van Buren ACORD and Elizabeth WRIGHT/CLICK/ACORD/REEVES.

ALLEN family from Cataraugus County New York, Illinois and California. Granderson ALLEN family and Descendants. Also listed as Edward Granderson and Granderson E as well as G.E ALLEN. Granderson Edgar ALLEN from Litchfield and Pana as well as Chicago Illinois areas. He worked for the Railroad in that area and is buried in Chicago. His parents were Edward Granderson ALLEN and Clara Bell HANSKINS. Edward ALLEN was a coal miner in the Shoal Creek area in Bond County Illinois. He died in 1910 I believe, at an early age. Possibly a mining accident or black lung disease.

BOUSE- from Washington County Missouri and New Madrid County Missouri

DAPPER- Alma Ruby DAPPER (ALLEN) and parents Sada Augie or Sada Angeline DAPPER. from Illinois area

EADS descedants of John EADS/EADES of Wilkes County North Carolina. William Franklin EADS and Amanda America Clementine MCDANIEL. Moved from NC area to Wayne County Missouri.

ESTERLINE descendants from Indiana and Missouri and Bavaria Germany. John Wesley ESTERLINE and Grover Clevland ESTERLINE.

HARTLINE descendants of Lack John Newman HARTLINE from Southeast Missouri area.

MCDANIEL Descendants and Ancestors of Amanda America Clementine MCDANIEL from North Carolina area she married William Franklin EADS and is buried in Wayne County, Missouri

SMITH Dorthula Dalue SMITH and descendants from Wayne County Missouri she married William Franklin EADS Jr.

TINKER from Unicoi County TN, Phillip Parks TINKER and Anne Hessaltine GRAHAM, Phillip Walter TINKER and Rose POPE TINKER.

WRIGHT-descendants of Richard WRIGHT SR from Surry, and Rowan as well as Davidson County North Carolina. Particularly Richard WRIGHT JRs son Clayton WRIGHT and his two wives and daughter Elizabeth WRIGHT who first married Preston CLICK in Cocke County, TN, then after he died she married Martin Van Buren ACORD and had my great grandmother Rachael ACORD. Any information on them would be of great interest to me. My grandmother Cora WILKEY always claimed she was Black Dutch and Cherokee and I am trying to find any link I can. I know that often people were listed as Melungeon or Mulatto on Census and actually Native American. She also claimed to be of Irish Descent. It had to come in somewhere and I dont know where. Elizabeth WRIGHT ACORD later married a man by the surname of REEVES in Southeast Missouri, after Martin ACORD died.
