Is it possible that "Patsy" you refer to for Jr. is from Pikeville, not Pickville? I know for a fact that there are Pendergrasses in Pikeville TN. I am originally from Blountville TN but now live in Woodbury which is in Middle TN which is not far from Pikeville. You also suggested that Jr. had 6 childern in Carthage which is not far from where I live, so obviously would be interested in learning more. I am just starting to dig in my Pendergrass heritage but don't really know where to start. I know that there several Pendergrasses in TN, GA, AL and I have met some Pendergrasses from AR too.

I hate to mention the book on the Pendergrass family I have since I can't find it right now, but it lists the parents of John Eley Pendergrass b. 1803 as Matthew Pendergrass b.1770 d. aft 1840 md "Milly? Green?" Matthew is the son of John Pendergrass Sr. and Bathsheba Massey md 1769. John the son of William Pendergrass and Martha Titus "Patti". William b.1730 is the son of Robert Prendergast Pendergrass and Elizabeth Manley. Robert b. 8 Dec 1711 is son of John Prendergast and Ann Pleasants and so on, are you interested?
