Lucy Absher was born in the 1800's we think. She married Joseph Whitson in TN (wilson or polk co?) They had a daughter Nancy Ann Whitson who was born about 1824 in TN. Joseph died while working on the Michael Hildebrand farm in Polk co tn. After Michael Hildebrands first wife died he then Married Lucy Absher Whitson. She had chidren by a previous marriage. Her daughter, Nancy, had children with a son of Michael called Joseph Martin Hildebrand. Nancy and Joseph had two children one was Michael, born in 1842 and the other was Elizabeth born in 1847 in Polk Co., East TN. Nancy Ann Whitson and Joseph Martin Hildebrand never married. Michel lost his land and house to the Federal Government because he was married to an Indian. He bought it back from the Federal Gov.and lived there till he moved to Indian Territory about 1859 and died there in 1863. I just can't seem to find anything on Lucy Absher ! She was thought to be part Cherokee is all I know. Any thing to help is so very appreciated.
