Were any of your Skaggs related to Nelly Skaggs? I know she married John Burton in 1877. Pretty sure they lived in Carter/Elliott Co.

I have Gillum's in my family history, but they are from Trimble County. Any chance there maybe a connection?

Sorry, but I don't have a Nelly Skaggs listed.

I do have a John Burton listed, but it's in my Wagoner Line.
John married Matilida and had a child Mary.

Any info on Elizabeth Haney b. 1832, married to James McGuire b. 1834. Her daughter, Mary Ellen McGuire married Jacob Messer, my g.g. grandfather. I have Mcguire info, but nothing at all on HANEY.

I am also working on this line. I believe my Moses Haney to be the brother to your John Haney of Carter Co. I don't have much information on his wife but I do have information on John's father, William Haney. Email me if you'd like to exchange information.
