    I am researching the Gary family that moved from South Carolina to Tennessee in the early 1800's. Nathaniel Gary married Rebecca Waldrop and moved with unknown friends and family members to Tennessee with one branch of that family settling in Texas later. I have been fairly successful with with research but have been unable to determine who Nathaniel's parents/siblings were. Many common names down through the generations lead me to believe he is from the Charles Gary line as KING, WEST, HETTIE, BASIL, ELIJAH, ALBERT are repeatedly used. Their close neighbors when they first moved to Tennessee were Edwards, Pattersons, Nesbitts. I have secured photos of many of the early Gary's of this group and have located where their homeplace was in Dickson, Tennessee, where some are buried including a civil war soldier-Francis Marion Gary. Please offer any suggestions/information. And of course i an willing to share the information that i have. Thanks, Sandy Gary Ross
