Would like to correspond with a direct blood descendant of Joshua Maxwell 1804-1876 who would be interested in DNA testing to further our knowledge of his family.

The website is very nice.
Under what conditions will some get me a copy of the marriage license of Robert Clay Boyd and Clara Jane Powe--June 4 1885, Bk 2, p 372, my great grandparents.
I am also interested in the death of her parents William Thrashley Powe and wife Susan B. H. Lightsey. Information is saying 1910.

My father was adopted. Before he died he found out his real name and birthplace. He was raised in Tennessee but was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. He said there was a lady that sold babies there.
Did Georgia Tann have a connection to or in Cincinnati?

I'm trying to locate my mom's grandfather William A. Pennington. The only info I have is a doc dated back in 1955 from Newton County where his body was railed from Missouri to Chunky, MS for final burial.
I'm told he was born in 1879.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.
