I am seeking information relating to the Glisson family. My Mom, Shirley Glisson Walker, has gathered a lot of information over the past years, but we would like any and all info that is out there. She has traced the Glisson family to North Carolina. Our imediate Glisson family is from the Western KY-Northern TN area. I would appreciate any info and would be glad to share what we have so far.
Our latest adventure was cleaning up an old cemetary located on the Swinging Limb Road around Palmersville TN. My Mom's Great Grandparents are buried there. This "clean up" took us 5 days of hard work.......but it made my Mom happy, and that's what's important to me. There were about 40 graves in the cemetary and only a very few were marked with stones with names......most were just marked with sandstones or rotting wooden crosses. If anyone has more information on this cemetary, I would love to know more.
I am from the family of Oscar L. Glisson from AR. But we believe Osa Glisson from TN might be a relative possibly a grandfather down the line. We have no info except Osa Glisson of Tn. might be the father of Oscar L. Glisson of (AR) MO. We can't seem to go any farther back than late 1800 to early 1900. If you have any info would love to here from you . If you don't let me know any way. Will be appreciated.
