Title: Twig, Tree & Treasure A Genealogical Sojourn
Bianchi's Twig, Tree & Treasure A Genealogical Sojourn
by Linda & Mike Bianchi, email: email@example.com
The project started in earnest during the 1960's and has continued sporadically from then on with help by various family members and a lot of friends. Oral and documented family information was complied by Linda Bianchi nee Hooper and Barbara Hooper nee Crosby, later augmented with additions by Lee and Cathy nee Hooper Galloway. A special Thank You to Michele Yvonne Hayward Tate and her family and to Amy Holtgrewe Haertling and her family, for their generous help. The project continues to be updated and expanded by Linda and Mike Bianchi.
Not all of the source data is listed simply because the data is a compilation from many different sources, most which were family oral history records. Some data will have individuals or groups listed as the source of information. While these persons should be credited and are thanked for making significant contributions to this work, they should by no means be construed as being the only source for that particular data or as the only person to have worked on that line.

Received your message, Marianne--good luck at your library!
Just in case they don't have Remini's work (there's also a one-
volume version, I think), I'll go ahead and photocopy the pages,
and hold them in case you need them.
I also saw your message to Lenard McDonald, and want to
clear up an apparent misconception so it doesn't get "echoed"
around too much. It wasn't Andrew and/or Rachel who had 5
children, adopted or otherwise; it was Andrew Jr. and his wife
Sarah YORKE. As I said, the genealogy charts, as given in
Remini's book, are quite confusing; let's see if I can straighten
them out a little here:
John DONELSON (ca 1718-1785) m Rachel STOCKLEY (ca 1730-
1801). They are shown as having 11 children; 9th one is Rachel
DONELSON who m1 Lewis ROBARDS and m2 Andrew JACKSON. 10th child
of John DONELSON and Rachel STOCKLEY is shown as Severn DONELSON
who m Elizabeth RUCKER. Severn and Elizabeth (RUCKER) DONELSON
are shown as having three children: twins Andrew Jackson and
Thomas Jefferson, and daughter Rachel. Andrew Jackson DONELSON
was the boy adopted by Andrew JACKSON and Rachel (DONELSON)
(ROBARDS) JACKSON and called by them Andrew JACKSON Jr. From the
family tree as presented by Remini, he was Rachel's nephew.
Andrew JACKSON Jr. m. Sarah YORKE (no dates given for this
line). Their five children and nine grandchildren [did I say 10
before? if so, I counted wrong], as shown by Remini:
Rachel JACKSON m Dr. John M. LAWRENCE
Sarah LAWRENCE m Charles WINN
Annie LAWRENCE m Joshua SMITH
Andrew LAWRENCE m1 Emma GEORGE; m2 Julia MILLICAN
Carrie LAWRENCE m William D. BRADFIELD
Samuel LAWRENCE m Maude CLIFTON
William LAWRENCE m May FLISHER
Marion [female] LAWRENCE m John Cleaves SYMMES
Andrew JACKSON III m Amy RICH
As I said, Remini provides no dates for any of these people.
Thus, it's hard to tell whether the children for whom no spouses
are shown died young or never married, or whether Remini just
didn't have information for them. None of these folks shows up
in the index to Volume I; maybe Remini deals with at least some
of them in his later volumes. I know he (or maybe his research
assistants) put a lot of family information in his one-volume
biography of Henry CLAY, so you may find it in footnotes to the
later volumes, if not in the text.
Gotta copy those pages and return the book
Later! ... Sue
p.s. You should be able to find something on the family of John
Cleaves SYMMES who married Marion LAWRENCE, granddaughter of
Andrew JACKSON Jr. From his name, he was probably a descendant
of the New Jersey judge and Revolutionary War veteran John Cleve
SYMMES, who in 1794 purchased a large tract of land in southwest
Ohio known as the Symmes Purchase.
