Thanks for replying. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I just got on here this morning or I would not have known that you did. Thomas Marion Zachary was my grand mother Nannie's Uncle. Which would make him my great great Uncle.Nannie Jane Zachary Lee's baby boy Hollis is my father. I to live in Casey, so we need to get together and compare notes! Email me at email@example.com and I will send you my phone number. I have lots of info on the Zachary's but most of it is here but part of it is on my ohter computer in Fl. LoL. The only problem I have with the book is that I can not find a Peter Allen Zachary, Jr. there just isn't one. Peter Allen Zachary did not have a son named Peter.
Peter Allen Zachary born May 22, 1822, son of James and Mary Allen Zachary was killed by Champ Ferguson that night and Allen Zachary was killed by His men. Which is usually how it is listed. So which Allen Zachry was is? I have read parts of the trial transcripts as retold in some book. I wish I could read the whole thing and maybe we could get to the truth on it. Champ states at one time that he killed Peter and that Allen was killed out side. His words they were the sons of James Zachary. Which he and his men had already killed. (I think people mix up the two James's father and son too)James Zacahary had two sons James Allen Zachary and Peter Allen Zachary. Peter was killed that night and there is difference of oppenion on if James Allen Zachary was killed that night along with his brother or if there was another Allen Zachary that I can not find. Or if as some say James Allen Zachayr was killed earlier, which I think it was his father James Zachary that was killed earlier, as they have mixed up the two James. It is all very confusing. And is as clear as mud!LOL! I found a state tax record that listed James Allen Zachary and James on it after the time that the other James was suppose to have been killed. James Zachary and his wife are not on the 1850 Census so people assume that he is dead before that. I think he was hiding out as for his political views as I latter find his wife Mary later on in the house hold of her grandson Wiley Captain Zachary. I have other records and things that prove that he was not dead in 1850 on the other computer. I need to put all of it back on both computers. 1862 Tax Record for Fentress County, TN Dated June 7, 1862 Listed are James A. Zachery Peter A. Zachery James Zachery John Zachery James B. Zachery There are several with the middle name Allen. That may have used that name. Some of the older version seam to mix them all up. There is a Peter Allen Zachary born about 1838 that married Emeline Chatman. She drew his pension, and claims he father her Childre, if so it was not the one that was killed that same night, At least two of her children were born to many years after that to have been one of the ones killed that night. Do the math and it doesn't add up. He is the closest in age, to have been the other Allen killed that night. Wiley Captain Zachary, son of Peter Allen Zachary born 1822, names a son Peter Allen Zachary but he was born Abt. 1868 which was after the even took place. Another son of Peter's (born 1822) James Knox Polk Zachary, names a son Peter A. Zahary born Jan 31, 1872, way to long after the Civil war.
I will go more into all of this later as I am afraid this message is gettin to long to post I still haven't gotten them all sorted out but would love to see the book. that you talked about. Type at you later. Little Bobby Cat
