Re: WISDOM of Sullivan Cnty TN
In Response To: WISDOM of Sullivan Cnty TN ()

Richard, Thank You so much. Your information is adding new light to this. I have never gotten this far in my search before and I thank you for that.

I have found more information. ALBERT LEMUEL WISDOM had seven children. The info you located is correct. Walter and Albert were indeed ALBERT SR. sons. I didn't know about the miliary info you found.

The 11 year old ALBERT WISDOM SR. that you mentioned is the only information I have about a young ALBERT. I don't know anything about the adults that were boarding him.

I do know that his mother Mollie lived in Bristol Tennessee. I do not know her birth date but her death was 7 Aug 46. I can not find anything about her husband Frank. Mollie was only married this one time. I still have no idea why her son ALBERT SR. was given the surname WISDOM. Maybe that was Mollie's maiden name but your info on the boarding house adds something new here. Why he was there at the age of 11 is a mystery to me, As far as I can tell the adults that owned the house are not mentioned anywhere in the family history.

ALBERT SR. was married in 1906 to MYRTLE DICKERSON and the sons you mentioned were theirs. They had seven children.

There is a story that ALBERT SR. was 'raised' at some point by Native Americans or Europeans. I am continuing my research and hopefully will uncover some new gems.

But for now the mystery grows.
