Anyone around Murphreesboro, TN or North Carolina that are relatives or know anything about relatives of Captain Joel Childress or Elizabeth, please reply. As far as I know they had 2 daughters, Sarah (former First Lady, married President Polk). I do not know the name of the second daughter. Please help. I feel these are relatives of Emma Alice Childress (Henson)and Gortie and Gertie Childress from the Jackson Co. NC area. Would like as much info. as possible. Thank You.

Joel Childress son of John and Elizabeth brother of John Childress. This is what was found written in a bible that belonged to my grandmother, no one is sure when it was written or by whom. My grandmother said she had a great uncle named after his Uncle Joel.I have some history going back to this. Hope this helps.

Dear Mr. Childress,

I would appreciate anything you have on Joel Childress. My mother and her family have been trying to trace our family tree and we have been running into some problems. Anything you can tell me would help a great deal.
