In Reply to: John P "Jackie" Eustice, Cornwall, England >Tennessee by Dawna of 171

Dawna, I can't believe all the time and work you have put into this and it not even your line! Thank you so much! I am sure you are right. I don't know where I got the info that John P. "Jackie" Eustice came from Wales. I too have found England on all the census'. I had found the Richard Eustice family last year and thought that was the one because of the names of the children. I notified two of the Eustice researchers (of this particular line) of my find and also that I had obtained the will of Richard Eustice. I never heard back from either of them. My main contact on the Eustice work had been Sandy Duncan (sandmot@comcast.net), but she passed away suddenly last year. She was the first one I wanted to let know when I found Richard and his will. We knew that John (Jackie) had been married 4 times and I had searched and searched for info on this. You have found all 4 wives!! Lucinda Ricketts (my great great grandmother) was #4. The second one was supposed to be the sister of wife #1 who died shortly after giving birth to Ann. Wife #2 died aboard ship and was buried at sea. Last year I went to Polk County to try to find some info and their records from 1895 back were destroyed by fire. There was also no record other than what I already had at the Historical Society there. In the fall I went to the mining museum in Ducktown where they had lived to see if they had any information, but found most of that had been sent to Nashville at the state archives. I then went to Soddy-Daisy where they moved to next after the copper mines shut down and I found Eustice Lane. I had thought that John (Jackie) had come to the US prior to 1850, so had not looked at the 1851 UK census. AND, I would never have found him in the 1860 as Ustell or Urtell! You did a fantastic job. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Feel free to contact me by email. I would love to have copies of the certificates you have obtained and would gladly share my info with you. Thanks again, Dolores
