Would you know anything about an Edward J. Nolley born circa 18378/38 who I think was a son of Paschall & Cynthia Nolley of Giles Co., TN.?
I think that Edward was married twice--first to an Elizabeth.They were in the 1870 Giles Co., TN. census with 2 children:Charlie and Lem.Edward J. married second L.B. Morris in 1875 in Giles Co., TN. and they appear in the 1880 Giles Co., TN. census with 2 children and also the two boys from the first marriage.
The reason I ask is that an Edward J. Nolley was a witness on my 4rd great grandmother's War of 1812 Widows Pension Application Declaration and I was wondering if there was a Nolley connection to the Kidwell family-whether it be just friends or whether they were related. My 4rd great grandmother was Elizabeth Angus Kidwell. She lived in Giles Co., TN.
