The 1850 census records of Stewart County in Tennessee list a Bryant
Killebrew, 43 years of age with his place of birth listed as Kentucky. There
are six other listed in his family.

There was also a Joshua Killebrew listed with a family of four. His age
was 52 at that time.

I recently met a T. Homes Killebrew that lives here in Detroit. He is a
descendant of Kinchen Killebrew who settled in Weakly County Tennessee. This
man had heard of Clint Killebrew that was supposed to have been a preacher at
various times. Do you know anything about this Clint.

There is a lot more work to be done but Im having fun learning about the
Killebrews. I do hope that you will be able to find William Henrys picture.
Dad said you all were having some copies of a photo of Nancy Chunn made and
I'm most anxious to see her.

I hope some of the things that I've mentioned will be of interest to
you. Should you know any history of the killebrews I would appreciate
hearing about it.

Just a final thought. I have met Taz Killebrew, who lives here in the
Detroit area. He is a Grandson of William Henry. His father was Samuel
Pikney Killebrew and he lived at Kirksey. Taz has a Willim Henrys family
bible and all the names that I have came from that bible except
for Jasper and Bink and I got those from you (this meaning Minnie Killebrew).
Taz also has William Henrys hand carved walking stick and a coffee cup that
William Henry used. An article in the Murray newspaper about Kirksey
mentions that William Henry was a brik mason and a wood carver by trade. He
is supposed to have built the first brick chimneys in the
Calloway county court house. The walking stick is carved and is a very
pretty article. William Henry was also a Mason.

There is also the story of how Bink Killebrew moved his family to California
by a wagon but I don't know all of the details.

Enclosed is a copy of this letter and if you would , could foward it to Mary
Whitman? Maybe these details will jog her memory and she could prehaps write
to me.

Thanks again for showing Mother and Dad such a nice time when they visited
you all.

Your Nephew, James T. Killebrew
