Thank you for your prompt reply about Ann D. Chadwell Bedford.Ann has been just a picture for me for all of these years. Ann's son moved to TN with his wife, Susan Harper, seeking a better climate for her health. Hillery was a tobacco farmer and finally resorted to growing cotton, after tobacco was unsuccessful.
I am glad to know about the book, "Chadwell Pioneers and Patriots," by Sharon Chadwell Phillip.Is this book still in publication?
I was incorrect on my statement about William Chadwell being Ann's great-grandfather. He is Ann's grandfather.
My information came from a biographical sketch about Ann's son, Hillery Bedford, not Hillery Mosely Bedford, which is published in "KENTUCKY"; A HISTORY OF THE STATE;, BYW. H. Perrin, J. H. Battle, G. C. Kniffin; Fifth Edition;
I have a photograph of Ann Duff Chadwell, a woman with strong facial structure, depicting many lines in her face,taken in her later years. This the first time that I have done research on the Chadwells and have very little information. Most of my research has been in libraries, MS archives, and trips to cemeteries.
My research in Ky has been on the Bedfords, Harpers, Clays, and Whitleys, who have married into these families.
