UNSOLVED BRESHEARS MYSTERIES

This research is to establish how the men below are related to HENRY ALEXANDER BRESHEARS. Tradition says they are Cousins.

The Breshears families are researching branches of our family tree that are very elusive and have become Unsolved Mysteries" . It is my thought that we might refine the search as we look at such Given names as:

p.151. Lawrencburg TN,1819 census by James Forbes Esq. (This is only a partial copy.
William Boshears
Henry Boshears
John Boshears
Jesse Boshears
Archelus Hogg
Georgene is adding a list compiled by E. Whitley a Genealogist in Tennessee and sent by correspondence about 1963. These were shared with other Breshears researchers by Georgene at that time.

Lawrencburg TN,...Alexander Brasher(child), and William C. Brashers orphan children are bound apprentices to Alexander Brashers (adult), whereupon and indenture was entered into accordingly.

abt 1833________?? for Nathan Brashers, Wm. W. Wisdom, John Wisdom et al.Jonston and William Basham orphen children are bound apprentices to James Basham and indenture entered into accordingly.

?

Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. Perhaps some one out there has the records we need. This could come from a sibling in a family who kept the family bible or other records. We need to check the maternal lines who married into the family. Some Pippen; May; Etheridge; Bell; Gibson; Wisdom, Hogg, Collins, Gibson, Hardin, Clayton, Pyle, Martin, and others.

This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.
