Re: help with Earharts-Davidson Co, TN

Sorry but here is my CORRECTION TO ORG. MESSAGE on
Earharts-Davidson Co., TN. and a little extra that might help someone connect.

Rebecca Jane UMPHREYS (sometimes listed as HUMPHREYS ) married three times. Her first marriage was to Wade J. EARHART b: __ d: abt 1847 on 21 Sep 1841 in Davidson Co. TN. (that is the Nashville area) and they had at least one child; Wade Hamilton EARHART abt 1843-1845. There may have been a J. (poss. John) EARHART too but I can't find enough evidence for that one except he is living near her on the 1880 US Census.
Rebecca remarried 2nd to Samuel David BROWN in Dec 1848. Samuel died prior to 1854. Then Martha married a 3rd time to William C. PULLEY (widower of Sarah BRAGG) in Jan. 1854 in Nashville, Davidson Co., TN. and she had three (not two) known children by him: a daughter (not Rebecca) Martha Jane PULLEY b: 1858 who married 1874 to Wilson Hurt BROWN (my GrGrandmother & GrGrandfather) and two sons; William M. PULLEY 1860 -1920 who married Sara Rebecca REED / READ and Rueben Arron PULLEY b: 1861 who married 1883 to Elizabeth "Betty" HAGAR / HAGER both in TN.

I believe that Rebecca is the daughter of James W. UMPHREYS / HUMPHRIES and Betsy Elizabeth WRIGHT from what I have found.
I also think we could be missing children from any of these marriages in the earlier years.
I still have several relatives in the area I have corresponded with and I believe all of my information from Rebecca forward should be correct without doubt.

I have Rebecca HUMPHREY / UMPHRIES parents listed as James W. HUMPHREYS / UMPHRIES and Betsy Elizabeth WRIGHT.

Wilson Hurt BROWN is the son of Richard K. BROWN b: TN OR NC abt 1808 and Sarah Ann HURT.
