You've all got my attention now. My ancestors were William Gatteys/Gattis (Ireland?)b 1784 and wife Charity _____ born about 1785 possibly in SC.
A daughter of theirs named Nancy Jean/Jane Gattis was born about 1826 in TN. She married James Allen Cook b 4 July 1819 in Wayne Co., TN and d 18 Nov 1895 Tyler Bluff, Montague, TX and was buried at M.T. Creek Cemetery; he was a Church of Christ minister. His parents were Christian Cook and Mary Coble/Cable.
If anyone can add to this information, there are many of us who would be extremely appreciative.
