Okay, to address the lineage, etc.
My first question is: what about the discrepancy between the ages
F.? He is listed in the 1900 census as being born in 1861, but the William
son of Robert and Martha is listed as being aged 11 in 1870 and age 1 in
putting his birth at 1859. The only confirmation I have of that date is a
copy of his interrment record from Greenwood Cemetary in Knoxville. It
doesn't list his actual date of birth, but states he was 67 at the time of
death in 1928.
As far as Bert, Sr. is concerned, I don't know when he married, but
that he died in Knoxville, so I'm assuming that he stayed in TN the whole
time. I have a copy of his obituary from the Knoxville Sentinel at the
and it said that he died at home. I know that William F. died in Columbia,
and was returned to Knoxville for burial, but I believe he moved there
his wife's death to live with his daughter and her husband. I don't know
which of the daughters this was, but she signed his interrment record and
listed as a Mrs. B. B. Armstrong of Columbia. I believe that she and her
husband are buried in Greenwood Cemetary in Knoxville as well.
Anyway, this is long-winded enough, so I'll stop for now. Thanks
Marie. It was great to finally find out Elizabeth Bradshaw's maiden name.
I've visited their graves several times over the years and it's always made
feel a bit odd to see my name on a gravestone. Everyone's help is most
