      Title: Twig, Tree & Treasure A Genealogical Sojourn
      Bianchi's Twig, Tree & Treasure A Genealogical Sojourn
      by Linda & Mike Bianchi, email:
      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
      John LAWRENCE
      Carrie LAWRENCE m William D. BRADFIELD
      Samuel LAWRENCE m Maude CLIFTON
      William LAWRENCE m May FLISHER
      Marion [female] LAWRENCE m John Cleaves SYMMES
      Thomas LAWRENCE
      Andrew JACKSON III m Amy RICH
      Thomas JACKSON
      Samuel JACKSON
      Robert JACKSON

      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.
