Organ/Orgain Family, Montgomery Co. TN
Posted by: russell james (ID *****8843) Date: July 19, 2002 at 04:37:38

I am seeking information on Minerva E. ORGAN/ORGAIN who married Benjamin EDMONDSON ca. 1851 in Montgomery County, TN. Benjamin died ca. 1854 leaving the young widow, Minerva, and two young children, Bennetta (f) and Repps (m) EDMONDSON.

Bennetta EDMONDSON married James Wiley DICKSON the gr. grandparents of my wife and they lived on Yellow Creek in Houston, Co. TN.

I have the 1850 Montgomery County census record of Minerva and the 1860 record but it is not conclusive of her parents. Could be B. E. ORGAN/ORGAIN or Thomas ORGAN/ORGAIN...or perhaps neither.

The 1850 Listing shows B. E. ORGAIN (m), 54 VA: Thomas ORGAIN (m), 52, VA; Martha ORGAIN (f), 46, VA; Minerva ORGAIN (f), 22, TN; Benjamin ORGAIN (m), 17, MS.

The 1860 listing shows Minerva EDMONDSON(age 32) living with her Father-in-law, Samuel EDMONDSON (age 71), with B. ORGAN (age 65) living in the household. Her children (Bennetta & Repps) were listed in the household of J. (John?) EDMONDSON who was their uncle.

In 1860 there is a Thomas ORGAN (age 63), Martha (age 48), William (age 19), Milissa (age 16) and Rich'd (age 15).

A family "G" or Griffin ORGAN appears in both 1850 and 1860 and the childrens' names are consistant. (ages wobble)

There is an location near Clarksville, TN called "Orgain Cross Roads" and the EDMONDSON family lived nearby. Any help with the ORGAN/ORGAIN line would be appreciated.
