Dear Martha, Thanks so much for your recent info on the AKE FAMILIES in TN. & ARK. In reply, I mentioned a FRANCIS--should have been FRANCIS MOORE to whom Dr. CASTLETON HARPER BROOKS AKE sold property in FRANKLIN CO., TN. 1832-3. It may be possible that this is the MOORE who m.______ the dau/o JOSEPH AKE, SR. The br/o WM. HARGIS of NC. & TN., Sgt. THOMAS HARGIS-WAR 1812 d. NC., had a dau. m. ALEXANDER MOORE, JR.
IN THE WHITE CO., TN. (formerly part of FRANKLIN Co.)1830 CENSUS, there is a FRANCIS MOORE, age to 40, his wife, age to 30. They are neighbored by JOHN CHANEY, JOHN & GEORGE MITCHELL, WILLIAM HARGIS, & EDMOND NEWBERRY. A NEWBERRY m. d/o SARAH PERKINS (in FCT WB).
Also, a FRANCIS MOORE purchased 40A in 1850's near HUNTSVILLE, AL. Could this be a FRANCIS MOORE, JR., s/o MISS _____ AKE & FRANCIS MOORE, SR.? I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON. DELLA.
