Is anyone working on a James Cornwell family?His first wife was Lucinda Gilley.They are on the 1850 census of Union Twp VBC AR, he is on the 1860 census, she died before 1859 in AR.She was d/o Gideon Gilley. On 1840 census for VBC AR is a James Cornwell and also a Thomas Cornwell.
Lucinda Gilley Cornwell - her sister was Minerva Gilley who married Henry Turney ca 1834, 1835 they were in VBC AR....another sister who died before 1859 in AR was Sarah Gilley who was married to a Smith.
The Gideon Gilley and his son William were wittnesses on the sale of the Turney land in Smith Co TN late 1834....this was Clear Forks area, today it is Dekalb Co Tn but right on border of Cannon County Tn.
Spencer Gilley - a brother to Minerva, Sarah and Lucinda - did move to VBC AR, but then moved on to Lawrence Co MO as did another sister - Editha Gilley Adamson.Spencer Gilley was married to Lucinda Woodson Breedon - Woodston family was also in same area as Gilley and Turney in Smith Co TN.
I would like to find descendants of this Cornwell and Smith families.
