Hello, Does anyone know anything about Tapley Bynum & wife Anne Rickman Bynum that lived for a while in Maury Co TN. Supposedly I have found that Anne died there between 1820-1830. I would very much like to find evidence of her death and hopefully where she is buried. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much,
Joan Morris

From Betty Weaver, Georgetown, TX (, 8/2001: Your William who married Winifred Horton is the brother of my Luke who married Sarah Horton.? But where did Ann Bradford come from> I have never run across her.? All the information says that Anne Rickman or Richman was Tapley's wife and no mention of Ann Bradford.? What do you have on her?

I got your address from the Maury County web site. I am the daughter of Vera Bynum dau/o Tapley Bynum s/o William W. Bynum s/o Luke Bynum s/o Tapley. Luke Bynum was married to Sarah Horton when the extended family moved to Maury County about 1818. Sarah died and Luke married Margaret Clark before they moved to Kentucky. Luke had about 13 children, eight of whom we have identified. Now to what I need to find out: either a death date for Sarah or a marriage date for Margaret, as well as names of other children. Descendents that I have talked to all divide the children up in different Ways.
