He was my great grandfather. His nick-name as I have heard it was "Bully", rumored to have been "well earned". He may have been married (maybe not) to my grandmother's mother CANSADA ADKINS. They lived in the Dry Valley Section, PUTNAM COUNTY, TN. I have very little info about him except maybe his father's name was Thomas Bohannon, B. 1835, and his mother's name might have been Margaret, B. 1858. My Granny's name was Mary Estie Avanna Bohannon (Adkins)Allen. She married John Haskel Allen also of Dry Valley Section, Cookeville, Putnam Co., TN. I want info about Mr. Bohannon and his relationship to Cansada Adkins; proof of marriage, family stories, history of his family etc; Any help is appreciated. Please e-mail: sharonketchum@hotmail.com

I am family too them all.
Estel is my uncle whom served and died in WWI son of Guy Bohannon and Clara Davis. If you look you will also find there a John Byrd Davis and Martha "Patsy" Daivs...she is the Choate and yes this is a family cemetery.
Parzetta is also John Byrd Davis and "Patsy" Choate-Davis daughter who also married a Will Bohannon.
Sibbie Bohannon was too born a Davis.. father James William Davis and mother Nancy Chaote (her name is much longer than just Nancy) Sibbie was married to the Will Bohannon listed here.

Can't remember if the Will married to Sibbie was the same Will married to Parzetta or not I will have to review my records to make sure. It is a bit twisted but yes they all are family with one another from both the Bohannon and Choate family. If you need or want more info please feel free to send a message on here...Thank's for the share hope these helps

Hi Meldey,

I was inquiring, because we had made a trip to TN and stopped by the cemetery to do some research. My great grandmother was Iva Nora Choate and she was married to William "Finn" Owens. I have sent out other request to message boards to see who is matched up to who in the family tree.
