My Most Wanted

My Most Wanted

These are the "most-wanted" in my genealogy. If you have any information on these, I would love to talk to you.  These are the major "dead-ends" in my research.  Hopefully, with the advent of cyberspace, I will be able to connect to others who have some information to share.

Family Members

John Thomas "Jack" Branch  (born 1862, KY, died 1914??).  He is my great-grandfather and was called a rambler by some.  One thing is for certain... I have only very limited information about him, mainly from the 1900 and 1910 census records for Campbell Co., TN.

John Breeding  (born 1797, died 1871, TN).  Several family legends exist about who his parents are.  I'm not sure any are true.   Read about him and his family, and see if you have him in your family tree.

William Sarvis  (born between 1776 and 1784, died 1826, KY).  He is my earliest SERVIES ancestor. This link contains a descendancy chart with three generations of descendants


Harding (?) Family Bible  This family bible lists members of the HARDING, SARVIS, SHACKLEFORD, PLAYLE, BARRIGER and other familys.  I am trying to locate a photocopy of this bible, since all that I have is an extract.   It evidently belonged to a family surnamed HARDING.
