I know this is a long shot, but I have tried everything else and have hopes that perhaps someone out there will be able to help me connect to my ancestors.
I have been told that often first and second sons took the name of a relative of the wife or husband.I am researching my Marlow line, but on a chance looked up my GG Grandfathers middle name of Alexander and found many like names and locations.
James Robert Marlow Bithel/Bethel Alexander Marlow
Locations:Sumner TN, Rutherford NC, White Co. TN, Missouri.
Parents:W. W. Marlow and E. Bryan/Bryant W. W. Marlow and Martha Jane Keeton Grandparents: John Marlow and Achsah Faulk m. 1804 in Sumner Co., TN
other surnames:Williamson, Pittman, Howe, Carr, Monroe, Graves, Gibbs
Anyone out there able to connect these surnames for me.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
