I don't really know anyone directly in the area. I have some questions about the area that I have read in Journals. Most of the stuff is about Dishmans.

Acually The Dishman I was talking about lived between this area and Franklin Ky. He recieved 100 acres in the area and a pension for being shot in the battle of New Orleans.

Then you need to go to ky maps not Tn because the fairfield area is very close to the ky state line Simpson county ky would have the maps you need

I understand what you are saying.What keeps everyting so confusing is that the whole area Was Virginia at the time before the civil war. I feel like Fairfield used to be a much to do place long ago. Now it's not the main town. The guy Brother I'm talking about Married a Cheif Doubleheads Daughter. The Cherokee at one time claimed all the land south of the Cumberland River. I Think Fairfield traded on this river.

There is no river here or even close I still think you could be mixed up in the area I have seen the maps around here when land was homesteaded fairfield area it is just an area not a town it is all country it never was anything special the cumberland river is over 50 miles from here sorry you need to google cumberland river it crosses sumner county in the fairfield area is on the northern state line boardering KY you have not been good facts sorry

You state in this thread as well as another that this area and Westmoreland was once a part of Virginia when in fact it was never a part of the Virginia territory. Tennessee was formed from the western territory of North Carolina and it was one of the original 13 colonies which later became states. I think you would have far better success if you try Westmoreland County, Virginia.

1590 - August 15 John White arrives back to Roanoke to find that the settlers have all disappeared. The word "CROATOAN" is found carved into a tree without any crosses or signs of distress. The fate of "The Lost Colony" remains a mystery

1602 - Sir Walter Raleigh sends Samuel Mace of Weymouth on a voyage to Virginia (North Carolina) to explore and search for survivors of the Lost Colony

1606 - 10 April English investors form the London Virginia Company are backed by a royal charter to finance permanent English settlements in the New World

1609 - Henry Hudson (1565-1611) English and navigator explores the area

1691 - The area assumed the name of North Carolina

Yes, Im well aware of the one in Westmoreland City, That is where I found out about the move that was made to the west. I believe Ky and Tennessee did some boundary work that made certain people and cerain peoples land disappear. Of course the war had a lot to do with it, as well as the Indians. I know for a fact that William Dishman Did Marry and Live in Franklin Co. Which when you read the history was always a scandel. Especially Because of John Sevier. He Murders many women and children. Look up Yahweh Falls in Mccreary County Ky. There are Dishmans strung along all the way across the border of Tenn. and Ky. I have verified them Past Burkesville and in Barren County. There is something special about Westmoreland, I heard about the town when I was a Child. I'm trying to find it.
I know her and her family

Thanks for your very intelligent help. History people are a special breed. Portland is exactly what I was looking for. The railroad is a Historic Railroad. That is the Railroad that Jackson and my family cruised in on. Here we go again. Still it's not very far. One of the Girls did marry a Davis.

The train my people took was close to your neighborhood. I have read the Journals of the Soldiers. They marched to perryville across The fairfield rd. It's only miles apart. I read where one brother mentioned The land was very farmable. They were from Virginia, Westmoreland City, King George County. But their was a mention of the new Westmoreland with the fertile land for tobacco.I have no Ideal about anything else. My grandpa's mother was a full blood Cherokee. She got burn up and died. He was orphaned. His birth dad left him and married 5 other Women. They all had accidents as well. The last wife scalped him. I'm sure he was overdo. The whole side of the family of my grandpa was not accounted for. Why? The Indian thingy. The Samuel you mentioned above had a grandson named Thomas. He married Chief Doubleheads daughter. So he was an outcast untill Samuels death, Then Peters Death, Then his Mother Sarah Reynolds.Related to RJ. She didn't condemn her son. But he was lost in Tennessee. He Remarried and went to New York. He left Chief Doubleheads daughter. She had Three sons. We were not of them. He also had got with someone in or near Robbins Tenn.Had another son named thomas whom Richard was born which was my great great grand father. That is where the paper trail ends. At Richard Dishman Whom Married 3 women Elizabeth Hancock being my Great great grandmother. From myself up to this is concret documented. I am the older male son living in this line.
