Suzanne-Your information about William Pinkard made my day! All my father knew about him was the long name, and he has tried for years to find out more about him. My grandfather was Jonah Jordon Pinkard b. Jan. 1, 1890 in Corinth,MS.He was the brother of Felix and Burney. My records show that William's first wife was Sarah Anne Tucker (b. 1861 in MS), daughter of Jordon Tucker (b. 1836 in TN) and Evaline -- (b.in TN).Sarah was the third of six children.Jordon Tucker's parents were Abijah Tucker (b. 1806 in N.C.) and Nancy -- (b. 1808 in VA). I have some more particulars about some of these people that I can try to gather up, and some information about my grandfather that may be of interest.I would be interested to learn more about Jefferson Pinkard and Russell J. as well as your side of the family. Thanks.
