Strangely enough, I am actually related to Jenny Wiley AND Henry Skaggs (the fellow that freed her).

Jenny was a white woman who was captured by Indians.
Interesting history to the attached marker. I know one that had soldiers buried there from the revolutionary war and buried in a small colonial cemetery thatís since been abandoned in the middle of the wilderness. Nasty place because of bears and such, but nevertheless has its own beauty. However, because of the bears Iíd never stay there overnight unless Iím in my vehicle which Iíve done once. lol

I think the link is broken, or FB wants me to get a profile, but Iím not interested in FB because of privacy issues and thatís a high caliber on my list of websites Iíll never attend, but itís fine, no big deal.

I only have two claims to fame. I'm a direct descendant of John Oliver. He was the first the first permanent settler in Cades Cove (Appalachia). And I'm related to Bettie Page.  She was my grandmothers first cousin as their moms were siblings.

My 3x Grandfather was a confederate soldier.  The Tennessee State Library & Archives, sent me a copy of his pension application. (Any soldier who was wounded was eligible, no matter the side).

1. It was neat because I was reading his ACTUAL handwriting and 2, his answer to question 7.

See attached.

Needless to say, he application was DENIED.

Sad they didnít grant him his request, but I havenít gone into my family extensively enough to know the answer.

Looks like youíve done your homework.

I started a little over 6 years ago. My paternal line beyond my grandfather was  obscure, at least to us.  So that was my focus starting out.  Branched out from there. (no pun intended).

I've always been a history buff.

Awe cool! I like me some history too. Good to have commonalities with you and some of the others here, or weíd all be bored to tears, eh? lol

Iíve meaning to get back into the swing of our family history, but Iím unable to do so currently, so itíll wait till I have the time again.
