      Hi Group,
      I am researching the following names from, or close to, Huntingdon,
      TN, 1800's to present:

      Thompson(sp? )
      Lashlee (Lashley sp?)
      Rothrock (Susan Amelia and Joe)
      Townes (Henry - mayor 1869)
      Maggie Brown

      My Great-Great Grandfather, Robert McCracken, was the first mayor of
      Huntingdon, in 1860. One of his sons, Joe (Josephus sp?) was a well-
      known merchant in Huntingdon for many years and who passed on May 8,
      1926. Another son, Lycurgus, was my Great-Grandfather. One of
      Lycurgus' surviving sons, Wallace Towne McCracken , was my
      Grandfather, born about 1866, and who moved to Florida in about
      1895?, died in 1946.

      As I understand it, many of my ancestors are buried there in the
      Huntingdon Oak Hill Cemetery.

      I have been in contact with the Huntingdon City Hall, and Ms. Jeal
      Atwood there has been a great help, but their records of my family
      are sparse.

      My mother, Mary Stewart (McCracken) Champlain, is now almost 92 years
      old, and I am trying to prepare some family history and photographs
      for her for a birthday present next November. Any and all info will
      be greatly appreciated.

      Regards to All,
      John Champlain
      Bradenton, FL
