|I am searching for any information pertaining to the MAGGARD and PHILLIPS families from Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia and Pennsylvania.|
1oth generation in the United States, I was born in Clinton, Tennessee at Doctor Stone's office on Monday (Labor Day), September 3, 1962, the 7th (and a twin) of 13 children to Grover Cleveland Maggard and Idell Phillips.At 6 months of age, I was placed with Carl & Bobbie Inman and their 2 daughters.February 1972 we moved from Oak Ridge, Tenessee to Clinton, Tennessee where I remained until adulthood.
Maggards are descendants of Samuel Maggard born in 1774 and Rebecca Robertson born in 1778 who moved to Kentucky from Virginia where they settled and raised their family.Samuel is the great-great grandson of Melchoir Mägert and Margret Müller of Reichenbach, Switzerland.
Jane Mosley, my great grandmother born in 1880 was never married to my great grandfather Henry Maggard.She had 7 children by 7 different men other than that, very little is known about her.
Melton Phillips born in 1915 in Anderson County, Tennessee was my grandfather and information on his anscestors seems to be far and few between.Anna Mae Phillips (the 7th wife ??) also born in 1915 is descended from Issac Phillips born in 1794 in North Carolina and Nancy Bunch born in 1790 also from North Carolina.
I am looking to find a brother.His name at birth was Grover Cleveland Maggard Jr.He was adopted at an early age (possibly by the Patterson family) and his whereabouts and current (adopted)name are unknown.He was born in 1968, give or take a year.Out of the 13 of us, he is the only one we haven't found.
If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Laura Elaine (Lena - my twin sister) Cate-Langley, please let me know.
I am happy to share the information I have collected on both sides of my families and any information that can be shared with me will be greatly appreciated.
