Barry, In regard to the Dallis/Dallas family book by Mary Peck, could you please tell me if copies of the book are still available? I am searching for information on Balinda (or Malinda) Dallas (daughter of Robert and Phoebe Dallas). Balinda (or Malinda) Dallas and James E. Cropper were married in Wilson Co., TN on 3-1-1836 and were my great great grandparents. Also, Elizabeth Dallas and Thomas H. Cropper were married in Wilson Co., TN on 3-22-1832. I believe James E. and Thomas H. Cropper may have been brothers. Balinda Dallas and James E. Cropper were parents of Elizabeth F. (b. 1840), Sarah H. (b. 1843) and Thomas (b. 1844). Thomas (full name William Thomas) was my great grandfather. Balinda (or Malinda) Dallas had apparently died by 1850 and James E. Cropper married Malinda Lisk on 9-28-1853. Do any of these names appear in the Dallis/Dallas family book? I would appreciate any assistance in sorting out this family. Thanks, Betty
