THE CHILDRESS CONNECTION

I am convinced that William Childress was the father of my g-g-grandmother Lucinda A. Childress who married Richard Medlin and the father of my g-g-g-grandmother Jane Armstrong Childress who married Wade H. Peavy...William was originally from Tennessee...He and his family settled in Madison County, Alabama in the early 1800s...I also believe that they were the sisters of Robert U.Childress..I have not found the link...William Childress was security on Jane Armstrong Childress's marriage to Wade H. Peavy...Jane's son Isaac Peavy(Physician) was living with Lucinda Childress Medlin and her children in 1860....But I do believe that William is the father to these two girls...You can trace the Childress family quite a way back...They intermarried with the Armstrong family....Notice Jane Armstrong Childress' daughter Susan E. Peavy named her daughter Jane Armstrong Martin....Anyway..My chart is proven from Jane Armstrong Childress and Lucinda A. Childress...I am showing William as their father...because I believe it is so....

UPDATE ON BARTHLYNN

>
Last year on January 20th, I lost my darling Mother After 15 years of being her caregiver in her valient fight against Alzheimer's....I immediately became ill....I blamed it on exhaustion and grief.....I was tired of doctors and illness and believed that I would get over it with rest but When I became so fatigued and breathless that I could not walk from one room to another without gasping for air I went in for treatment....This past December, a week before Christmas, I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis, an auto-immune disease that is non-curable but treatable....It had attacked the lymph nodes in my own body...It has attacked my lungs....But it can attack just about any organ in your body......I am now in treatment...steroids and compounds that I breath in my lungs....I am also on oxygen almost 24 hrs. a day...But my doctor believes he can get me into remission in about 5 months....The problem is that this disease almost always rears it's ugly head again....My mother, husband and I have had an incredible experience for 15 years in our journey with Alzheimer's.....Now that I am on a new journey of my own, she is not here to help and lend me moral support....But my wonderful husband is...He is my friend and my caregiver when I am just too exhausted to even get out of bed.....My genealogy has taken a back seat for the past 10 years....Every aspect of my life has taken a back seat....My life became caring for my mother...her needs....her care.....When we lost her, I was unable to speak of it or put the information online....If you have wondered what happened to me....If I have not responded to emails...If my web pages are not updated...That is the reason....I don't know how much work I can do on my genealogy....I will have to work around my disease....Thank you for your prayers.....
