Williamson Co. TN--Dist 25(1836-1840)--D-H

Over the past few years I've been studying Williamson Co TN Dist. 25 in hopes that knowing how the families were interconnected will help me to find a lead and break thru my Cook brickwall.  I've been using a spreadsheet to pull together my notes and information on this community so that I had somewhere to quickly look for notes on the families if they showed up in any other parts of my research. I'm publishing this to my blog in the hopes of finding other researchers interested in the area and time period that the information here might help.  This portion contains families who were living in or taxed in District 25 of Williamson Co TN during the years 1836-1840 whose surnames begin with D-H.  When possible I've noted connections in neighboring districts.  Simply put, there is a lot of overlap of families between Williamson Co TN Dist. 25,  the Versailles and Eagleville area of Rutherford Co TN and Bedford Co TN Dist. 10(Rover). 


A-C           D-H            J-L          M-P           R-S           T-Z

Davis--Goodwin Davis is on Dist. 25 Tax list for 1838 but was listed on the Dist. 10 Rutherford Co Tax list for 1837.   There is a Goodwin Davis(b. NC) enumerated in 1860 in Bedford Co Dist. 18 with a rather large family.  That Goodwin Davis' wife was a Henrietta Davis(maiden name unknown) Additionally Mrs. H. Davis(1840 Census-Williamson Co TN Dist 25)

Dillard--James(Dist. 25 Tax List:  1836) Could he be the one buried in Beechgrove(Coffee Co) d. 1839

Eggleston--Edward C(Dist. 25 Tax List 1836, 1837, 1838, 1839) John W(Tax List 1838, 1839) I believe these Egglestons are connected to those in May Community of Rutherford Co TN in the 1850  There are some which are in Moore & Franklin Co later on which I believe are also from this family.

Fagin-- John(Dist. 25 Tax List:  1839) I think this is likely John S Fagan who married Mary Elizabeth Smith.  They were the parents of Thomas Henry Fagan and grandparents of Urban B Fagan & John Walter Fagan, Maggie T Fagan & Richard Owen Fagan.

Hill--William Hill(Dist. 25 Tax List:  1836, 1837, 1838, 1839 & 1840 Census) Is this the father of J Benjamin Hill?  If so this family is from Granville Co NC. and William Hill was enumerated there in the 1800 US Federal Census(see History of Versailles)
