Cyndi, I am aware of the information that you posted but thanks for adding it anyway to the thread so others can see it. I tried to get the obituary of Dicy but it didn't give any more clues as to her siblings or parents (although she listed Joseph as her ftaher on the marriage bond). She may be a sister to my Elizabeth who may or may not be in the family of Eli Tillinger and Calvin Wesley Hunnicutt. Elizabeth started in NC --I think she was born there -- but then married lived in TN. Unfortunately, I think some of the records I am looking for were destroyed in fires...And so I continue to hunt for a link between Elizabeth and Joseph and Polly Hunnicutt (oral tradition states they were the partents of Elizabeth).
