Nathan Northern
Posted by: Aliene Crockett (ID *****4912) Date: June 18, 2002 at 09:51:37

I am looking for the family of Elizabeth "Lizzie" Northern. Elizabeth was born: 22 Sep 1868, Strawberry Plains, Jefferson Co., TN and died: 18 Dec 1945, Knoxville, TN.
Her father is Nathan Northern and mother is Sarah "Sally" Jenkins (McJenkins).

I have not been able to find her parents in the census for Jefferson Co., TN or any of the other hundreds I have searched. I have a family record which states that Sally was buried in South Mound Cemetery, New Castle, IN along with her sister Maggie Jenkins and her sister's husband, John Lovett, but do not have any verification of this.

Elizabeth married (1)Jeptha W. Cravens in KY(?) 1 May 1887, and later married (2) Gratton "Grat" Crockett in Whitley Co., KY in 1902.

I have found Elizabeth with her husbands and families in the 1900, 1910, and 1920 census but have not been able to find a record of her parents. In the census Elizabeth parents are listed as born in TN.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
