Professional Tennessee genealogist, Debbie W. Spero (see my notes below), allerted me to her Tennessee Genealogy Reserach blog posting on 4 May 2011 regarding her documentary findings about the subject Silas James Lankford, who served in the Civil War for BOTH the Confederate and Union forces infantry. The research is very interesting and may be read at the following Web pages:
Debbie did some THACKER family research in Oct. 2010 for my correspondent, Eric Thacker, a bit of which I discuss on my page for my wife's ancestor, Edward P. Thacker. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to find documentation on the roots for Edward Thacker or his wife, Elizabeth "Polly" Morgan, whose 1798 marriage record was found by Debbie in Grainger Co., TN.
