I am researching my lineage as far back as I can. Due to slavery and other recording laws, we can only get as far back as Ruffin Bright (b.1820, d. between 1901-1910) in Davidson Co., TN. He married Jane Scruggs (b.1827, d. 1883).They had 9 children: Jordan, Egbert, John, Sallie, Martha, Irvine, Elizabeth, Ophilia, & William. After Jane passed away, Ruffin married Mary Tiller (1883). No children listed.
Egbert (b. 1844, d 1922) married Sarah Gleaves in 1874 in Davidson Co., TN and they had 3 children: Jane, Egbert, Jr., and John Robert. Sarah died before 1880. After she died Egbert had one son with a lady named Anna (last name unknown) named Robert Egbert (b. 1882, d. 1926)...of whom I am a desendent. Around 1888, Egbert married Malnda Gleaves in Williamson Co., TN and had 5 children: Alex ("ellic"), Sally, Nabela, Estella, & Lilla. After the death of his 2nd wife, Egbert married Eugenia Cliffe (1907). No children listed.
Robert married Estella Davis and parented five children: John Robert Arthur ("Pete"), Charles Alexander ("Ellic"), David Egbert, Sr., Richard Ruffin, and Florence Mary Lulabelle.
I am looking for any information about this lineage that I don't have, including children or marriages of Egbert's and Robert's siblings. Also any name or children information on Anna is also greatly appreciated.
