I am researching my g grandparents. SAMUEL APPLETON b. 1847; married NANCY ELMINA ??? b. 1858; they were married in 1870. He states he was born in AL on 2 censuses and TN on 2. She was born in TN. I have them on the 1880,1900 and 1910 census in Giles Co. TN. On the 1920 census they are in Limestone Co. AL. Have not been able to find them on any other census. I don't know who his father was but I found a Samuel on the 1850 Fayette Co. TN census age 2; father James R. mother Elizabeth Appleton. I am not sure if this is his parents. Have been unable to find another Samuel anywhere else. I don't know Nancy's maiden name.
Their children are: Hiram b. 1874; William b. 1876; John b. 1878; Robert David b. 1879; Mickey (my grandmother) b. Dec. 1881; Easter b. July 1886; Mary b. July 1888; Geneva b. May 1890; Lela b. Aug. 1892; Douglas b. March 1894; Weakley b. July 1898; Franie (I believe died young)
There is a Samuel Appleton b.1850 d. July 14, 1923 buried at Prospect TN that states his parents James b. VA, Cornelia b. AL. I believe this could be him. Also Nancy Appleton 1856-1953 is buried in William Brown Cemetery. I believe this could be my Nancy.
They Had children in Vito, AL and I know that is where she was living when she died.
Any help would be greatly appreciated in determining who their parents were and their linage.
