192 viii. Edna, F (1872-1964)
193 ix. Mary "Mollie", F (1874-1904)

68. Mary Amanda "Tennessee" BELEW, G Granddaughter, F. Born about 1836 in Milan, Gibson County, Tennessee. Mary Amanda "Tennessee" died.

Clyde WALTON has Tennessee listed as Mary Amanda BELEW, however, in all the
Indian papers and other records we have found, we have only seen her listed as
Tennessee BELEW. 1850 Gibson County, TN census.

She married William H. SEYMOUR, M, on 19 Jan 1864 in Milan, Gibson County, Tennessee. Born on 14 Mar 1835. William H. was 61 when he died on 21 Jul 1896.

They had the following children:
194 i. Dora B., F
195 ii. Nannie, F (1867-)
iii. Horatio, GG Grandson, M. Born in 1869.

iv. Danny, GG Grandson, M. Born in 1871.

196 v. Hattie, F (1873-)
197 vi. Earnest E., M (1874-1941)
198 vii. Estella, F (1877-)
viii. Sarah, GG Granddaughter, F. Born in 1878.


69. Harry Harvey BELEW, G Grandson, M. Born on 3 Aug 1839 in Gibson County, Tennessee [1850 TN census]. Harry Harvey was 75 when he died in Gibson County, Tennessee on 17 Apr 1915. Harry Harvey was buried in Poplar Springs Cemetery, Gann, Gibson County TN.

Birth, death, place of burial & name of wife from Nancy MICHAUD, CA.

He married Pinine HICKS, F, on 1 Dec 1857 in Milan, Gibson County, Tennessee. Born in 1837 in North Carolina. Born in 1837. Pinine was 79 when she died in Milan, Gibson County, Tennessee in 1916. Pinine was buried in Poplar Springs Cemetery, Gann, Gibson County TN.

1870 Gibson County, TN census has her born in TN. However, Blake BELEW states she
was born in N.C. Most FGS have Pennina or Pininey, I spelled it the way it
showed on her headstone.

They had the following children:
i. Zachariah, GG Grandson, M. Born in Jun 1860. Zachariah was buried in Poplar Springs Cemetery, Gibson County, TN.

Zachariah BELEW was not on the 1870 Gibson County, TN with his parents. I assume
he died between 1860 and 1870.
