Posted by: Carmen Baxter (ID *****5778) Date: November 23, 2002 at 12:35:29

Looking for the parents of Rebecca Morrow Nail Prewitt.
She may have been the daughter of Benjamin Morrow of
Lawrence County, Tennessee. I would like confirmation.
Below is information for background. My line is
Eliza Jane Prewitt who married Thomas Williamson.

Rebecca Morrow md. Archibald/Archer/Archie Nail
Sept. 23, 1819 Lawrence Co., Tennessee

Mary Morrow md. Patrick Henry Prewitt/Pruitt
Dec. 22, 1825, Lawrence Co., Tennessee. Was
Mary a sister to Rebecca? The Prewitts went
to Hardeman Co., Tennessee as well as the Nails.

Archer/Archie Nail died before September 1828 in Hardeman Co., Tennessee.

Children of Archie and Rebecca Nail:
Mary Ann Nail md. James A. Hamilton
William S. Nail md. Melinda Williamson, dau of Thos.
and Catherine Williamson
Thomas Nail md. Melissa Butler
Benjamin Franklin Nail md. Martha

Rebecca Morrow Nail remarried to John Prewitt/Pruitt
February 9, 1831 in Hardeman Co., Tenn.

John Prewitt died around September 1847 in Hardeman Co.
NOTE: John was a brother to Patrick Henry Prewitt
who married Mary Morrow.

Children of John and Rebecca Prewitt:
Eliza J. Prewitt md. Thomas Williamson, son of Thos.
and Catherine Williamson
John Prewitt
Sarah Prewitt md. Lafayette Tanner
Malinda Pewitt

By 1860, Rebecca Morrow Nail Prewitt was living in
Madison County, Tennessee with her daughter Sarah and
son-in-law Lafayette Tanner.

The families of William S. Nail, Benjamin Franklin Nail,
and Thomas Williamson went to the areas of Independence
and Izard Counties, Arkansas. A brother of Thomas
Williamson, Richmond P. Williamson was in that part of
Arkansas. The Nails and Williamsons were living in
Tippah Co., Mississippi before going to Arkansas. Tippah
is below Hardeman Co., Tenn.

Apparently, a relation to the above people, named
William Morrow came to Independence County, Arkansas.
He died October 15, 1864 in Independence County, Arkansas.
According to his probate papers, his heirs were William
Nail, B. F. Nail, Mary Hamilton, and Eliza Jane Williamson.
All residents of Arkansas. Richmond P. Williamson or
B. F. Nail were administrators of the estate at various
times. On May 23, 1867, Rebecca Pruett of Madison County,
Tennessee gave power of attorney to William S. Nail in respect to her interestin the estate of William Morrow. No
family relationship is ever given in the papers between
William Morrow and his heirs.
