[TN] TIPTON 1900-2009

:( I had put this part of the family research aside because it so very hard to get information from who is now living. No one seems to know much of anything and that is really unusual. So I'll put this out here now. There are some odd names and I thought it would be easy to find more information after 1900 but there is nothing coming up.

1900 Tipton Tn HOH
Felix Ragland 51 bn 1843 widow
dau- Ellen 20 bn Oct 1879
dau- PARALEE(my paternal grgrandma) 16 Dec 1883

grandau- Montague, Rian J 9 jULY 1890(A passenger named RJ MONTAGUE came up for Canada, (I do not have access to this)

granson- Jones, Ed L 3 Feb 1897
granson- Hunt, William 1 Mar 1899

As you can see all the children have a different surname.

This is what I only know..Paralee had 2 daughters. Sallie Fields-my grandmother and Geraldine who's married name is only known as PRUITT. I believe Geraldine lived in the Detroit area. I'm not sure, but I know it was somewhere in the midwest at the time of her death.

Sallie Fields Married Sam White in 1919 Shelby Tn. On her death certificate the father's name is Willie Fields.

I was told there might have been a brother but the name is lost. In the library, in our special collections, I only found a Felix Ragland in 1 TN book noting he paid some taxes.
Hopefully someone out there can help me peep over this brickwall of little facts.
