Query: Posted by Shawnda Kimmel <> on Sat, 19 Sep 1998 Surnames: WEAVER, DOWDY

Trying to find the descendants of Thomas J. Weaver and Nancy Dowdy. Thomas J. Weaver was b 30 Aug 1812 in Chatham Co, NC and d 15 Jul 1895 in Marshall Co, TN. He married Nancy Dowdy (b 1812, d 25 Jul 1885 in Marshall Co TN) in Williamson Co, TN on 9 Feb 1831. Thomas was the son of Shadrack and Lucy Green Weaver. I don't have any other info on the two other than this - I do have much Weaver info free for the asking. Thanks.
