Clyde,

One other thing (I'm at work, not bound and tied), My uncle Wilson Crook, My Mom's oldest brother and last survivor of that generation, took me around to some of the old family places and told me about Buffalo Valley, Family etc. At the New Macedonia Methodist Church in Chestnut Mound, which is now in Putnam County, Elijah Brindley, My Mom and Wilson's maternal Grandfather is buried there with his wife Marry Etta (Smith) Brindley. This is something you won't find in any records (I haven't yet), but Mary already had a child when she married Elijah. His name was William Clevin and Elijah gave him the name Brindley. Wilson said they used to call him "Billy Red". William, Mary's father is buried there as well. Elijah's birthdate on the stone is 1864, and Uncle Wilson has a lifetime of stories about him. Elijah spent his last years in Macon County, at Red Boiling Springs. The waters there were thought to be beneficial to one's health for many years and the Donoho's Hotel was legendary. So I KNOW which Elijah was my Great Grandfather and where he lived his adult life. Thought you might like to know this. Linda
