    I read with interest your piece on George W. Stacy and his marriage to Texas Ann Spann and Elizabeth Chaffin. There is a George Stacy who is my Grandfather as well who was born in Gainsboro, Jackson County, Tennessee. He was married to Mariah Jane Johnson on October 29, 1879 in Jackson County, Tennessee. George was part Cherokee Indian and I have reason to believe that is the same George Stacy. I believe he was employed as glass blower in or around Dickson County Tennessee in later life. My father only saw him once. He abandoned my Great Grandmother when my Grandmother was born. Any input would be appreciated.

    • Good Evening Jim!

      This is not my family but the family of James William Spann. I have forwarded this message to him. You can also find his email at the bottom of the family page.

    Hi’ya Julie,

    This could very well possible the same man Mr Scott mentions…..
    I have hardly anything on him before he came to Dickson Co. TN.
    From what Info I have gathered on him over the years, he was quite the “wierd”. Don’t know of anything bad that he ever did but certainly some strange ones. One story is that he bought a house for his family, didn’t like the direction it pointed to he tore it down and rebuilt it facing a different direction.
    I have a group photo “somewhere” of the family and George is standing in a barrell.
    Not that it is strange but I have a photo of George and Texas’s headstone in a local cemetary
