I ordered the death record from the state for my great, great grandmother Newby (Lydia Newby). I hope that on the record there maybe some information, was she married, widow, or divorced. This would help to find her husband King H Newby who seems to have disappeared after the 1880 Census.
I also ordered the Land Grant records for Brumley. The family has long believed that William
Brumley owned land in Marion Co. Tennessee through a Land Grant, but don't know this for a fact. Thought this would help to know if this land was fact or wishful thinking.
Hope to soon have this information from the state. I'll update later.
