I'm looking for the names of the wives of the sons of Hiram Bedwell

+3 votes
I already have Hiram Bedwell's wife. I have her name. I'm searching for his son's wives names. The men in this line married a couple of times usually. I think the average is 2 per guy. I am hoping that someone might be able to help me with this. They congregated in McMinn, Graysville, and Rhea county Tennessee. I have been told I have native american ancestry and I believe this has been the root of the problem. The women didn't want to be well documented. Being indian wasn't a good thing to be back then.

Brandi,  I can't find the Hiram Bedwell profile.  Is it posted in your family tree.  Names of wife, son's, DOB, DOD, places they were born & died?

I have Bedwells in my family & have hit a brick wall for some of the same reasons you are having.  Numerous marriages, similar named wives & children, brothers, sisters & parents.  Tennessee is tough because so many records were destroyed either by fire or the war.

Try the census, wills, grave info.  You can message me & we can work together.  Maybe we will find we are related?
