Hi Joe,

I'm not sure what our connection is, but I will assume that we're cousins of some sort.  

I saw reference to your web page in some material that was forwarded to me by Nancy Resch, 

(another cousin), but couldn't find your web address.  I would like to compare your research

to some of mine.  How can I find you on the web?

I am particularly interested in any information you may have on Mariah Surgener, who was 

the wife of Milan Davis Livesay and my great-grandmother.  I know her father was Stephen 

Samuel Surgener, but havn't been able to take the line any farther back than that on the 

Surgener side.  Mariah's mother was Elizabeth Livesay (born 1832, died 1916)...her line 

was Andrew/James/George/Thomas/Thomas.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yeah, I was really pleased to notice that there is a link on your site that shows some of the the people that I have listed on Darrell's family tree. Funny how you figure out who all you are related to once you get a few
generations back on the ol' family tree. I am going to list Mary Livesay's siblings so that you can figure out just how you are related to the Davises. Seems there was a Milum Livesay that married a Davis, and a Milum Davis that married a Livesay. A brother and sister married a brother and sister. It happens on my Burns side too
Well, here we go. Be sure to tell me if you figure out how you are related to the Davises and, if you know anything about the Clarissa Thompson that was married to your Dr. Sam Stone.

Now this is something new. Joe Davis told me the story of his (now I am beginning to think it may have been Joe's father JOHN GUY, cause that might have been while my Grandfather, Lafayette Greene Payne was JP) getting married and my grandmother, Mattie Livesay Payne lending, then giving whoever it was her small ring for the wedding. I am not sure it was true but it could have been. There was a Milum Livesay. It will be interesting to see how were related.

Joe,
Thanks for getting back with me so quick! I really appreciate that. As a matter of fact, Joe Davis is something like Darrell's first cousins twice removed. Joe's father was Darrell's grandfather's (John Guy Davis) first cousin, so I think I got that close. John Guy Davis is the son of the Harvey Davis of which I am asking. He is the one listed in the first 1880 census you sent. His father was Richard Milum Davis and his mother was Mary Livesay Davis. Harvey is the father of John Guy Davis. John Guy Davis's daughter Ella Davis Thompson is Darrell Thompson's mother. I hope I did not make that too confusing.
R.Milum Davis
Mary Livesay Davis--------Harvey Davis
                  Mitchell Horton--------John Guy Davis
                              Bessie Moles Davis----Ella Davis Thompson
                                      Arville Gene Thompson
                                              Children-
                                                   Benny
                                                   Eloise
                                                   Buster
                                                   Debbie
                                                   Darrell
Hopefully that makes it a little clearer for you. I also thought that Darrell maybe related to you through the Livesay family. I found Mary's (married to R. Milum above) one the family charts for the Livesay's on your Claiborne Pages.
Like I said, I heard about Harvey being dragged by a team of horses or mules and having his leg severely injured. He was supposed to have been found and taken to a doctor's house on Lone Mountain Rd. The house is still there. I think someone said the doctor's name was Wright, but I am not sure of that. Supposedly, he survived a day or more before dying from the injury. His family did not find out about anything until he was already dead.
They lived in Howard's Quarter near Hancock County. If you know anything about this and if it is true or some facts are different from what I've been told, I would appreciate hearing about it.
Once again, thanks for the wonderful pages on the Claiborne County past. They wonderful and I have found them more than helpful as well as just enjoyable. I noticed that your ancestor Dr. Samuel Stone married a Clarissa Thompson. I was wondering if you knew who her parents were? (We'll look into this when I can find a little more time! - Joe Payne)
Thanks,
Mary

Hi Joe!

You've got my great grandmother Julia Ann Livesay married to another woman (Mary Lula Testerman) on page 29300 of your Livesay ged.com  

(also on the Testerman file). She would not be amused.  She was married to William T. Testerman  (son of James Testerman (#80 in the Testerman

file), one of 4 Testerman brothers who married 4 Livesay sisters in this family).  Her brother Milum Livesay (1862- c. 1899) is missing on your

list, and was married to Mary Lula Testerman (dau of Wm Penn Testerman).

Also, while I'm here,another great grandmother, Mariah Surgener (page 4567 on the Livesay gedcom) was born 24 Mar 1853 (per Lee County birth

register), died 26 Aug 1942 in Hancock Co., TN (per her death certificate), and was married July 1, 1869 to Milum Davis Livesay, his

first wife Margaret "Monnie" McNeil having died in 1867.  There were two other children born to Mariah & Milum who did not survive to adulthood:

Julia (1878-1880) & Elizabeth (1880).

I have more info on ancestry of all these: all 4 of my father's grandparents (Mariah Surgener, Milum D. Livesay, Julia Livesay & W T Testerman were of Livesay descent, and all except Mariah were also descendents of Thomas Testerman).  Let me know if you want that info.

Joseph was a teenager when his parents left Grayson County, VA, around 1816 and moved to Lee  

County, VA and then to Hawkins Co. TN.  He along with Edmond Livesay, had the largest

families among the East Tenn. Livesays. 

Joseph was a Union sympathizer in the Civil War.  A story was told by one of his descendants,

(Edna Livesay Ramsey, Sneedville, Tennessee, that she had heard from her father) that a band of  

Confederate soldiers came by and arrested several men in the community including Joseph. 

They tied them and dragged them intending to hang them.  Susanna (Mrs. Peter Livesay) a

sister-in-law to Joseph, intervened and begged for Joseph's life, saying "He is a good 

man and does not deserve that kind of treatment."  They released him but hanged the others.  

He received  injuries at that time that resulted in his death a short time later, August 15, 

1962.  

There is a  large, very old cemetery on Natty Branch, a few miles from the home place, 

many graves are only marked with field stones.  Some people in that area say that Joseph 

was buried there.

Carter LIVESAY, (Joseph LIVESAY, George, Thomas, Thomas) was born in 1823 in Hawkins

Co., Tennessee, USA, and about 1845 in Hancock Co., Tn, married Sarah BYRD who was 

born about 1825 in Hawkins Co., Tn.  

Carter was an impulsive, high tempered man and because of this he had trouble living 

peacefully  with his family and neighbors. 

In his Civil War records, the late Ralph Mason found the following story: "Carter Livesay

of Kyles Ford, Hancock County, Tennessee, was Known as an uncompromising Union 

man at the  beginning of the war between the states. In 1861 some southern

soldiers came through the  county arresting Union men and taking their guns.  

When they approached Carter's House he  fired on them, shooting the horse from under 

one of the soldiers.  Thereafter he fled to the nearby  woods to hide.  The soldiers 

came on to the house and arrested his father, Joseph, and took him  off to prison.  

Carter's father died shortly after his release from prison.  Carter and others  

remained in hiding afraid for their lives.  When Capt. Rose came into the county,

recruiting men  for the southern forces, Carter and others arranged a meeting with 

him and as a result were given  safe conduct out of the county into Kentucky.  

There evidently was not a clear meeting of minds  as Capt. Rose, in his disposition 

after the War, believed that he had gained new recruits, but Carter said he thought outherwise.  

Later, when they were in Kentucky, rifles and uniforms were issued to them but Carter refused 

to wear the uniform and hid the gun under a ledge of rock.  He never took the oath of 

allegiance and later when the soldiers were engaged in a skirmish at Boston, Ky., he got 

away and joined the Federal troops at French Lick, Ky., and stayed with them

until his discharge.  The records futher show that Newton (his brother) did not go 

with him, but  his brother Joe did.  Carter served in Company F of 2nd Tennessee Regiment. 

He enlisted Feb.  15, 1862 and was discharged Feb. 24, 1863 (disability). 

The papers show that he married at  Blackwater, Tenn. Nov. 10, 1885 to Ellen Mullins and 

that he was previously married to  Deborah Byrd, from whom he was divorced Sept. 24, 1865.

Hello,

 

I am researching the Livesay/Anderson Families of Hancock County, TN

looking for the parents of my gg grandmother Edna Elizabeth Livesay b.

07 Jun 1825 d. 04 Jul 1892 in Hancock County.  She was married to

Morgan Anderson and went by the name Elizabeth.  On the 1840 Hancock

County census they are shown on the same page as Peter Livesay however

I have been unable to place her in this family or any of the other

Livesay families in the area.  I would be very grateful for any help

or even suggestions you might give to me.

Also noticed that you have (8900) Newton Livesay on your web site.  I

have further information on his wife and children.  His wife was the

daughter of Morgan Anderson and Edna Elizabeth Livesay:

      Martha Matilda Anderson b. 1842, Tennessee, m. Jasper Newton

Livesay, b. 01 May 1841, Hawkins County, Tennessee (son of Joseph

Livesay and Lavinia Hurley).
