William Young Gardner was born in 1822 in Robertson County, Tennessee, parents unknown. He ma rried Permelia Adeline Powell on March 23, 1846 in Robertson County, Tennessee. I have a cop y of the marriage licenses. She is the daughter of Elizabeth "Betsy" Bell of the famous Bel l Witch Family. Note: 6 books written: I have 4. Very much documented. Father of Permelia i s Richard Rowell Ptolemy Powell. "It states, W. Y. Gardner & Pemelia Adline Powell marrie d on March 23, 1846. I certify that on the 26th day of March, I solemized the rite of Matrimo ny between W. Y. Gardner ... Adline Powell Richard W. Bell (J. P.)Then I found the 186 0 Todd County, Kentucky Census, It states: On this 21st day of July 1860 R. F. Allison Assn' t Marshall Post Office Elkton, Todd County, Kentucky.

William Young Gardner died on February 23, 1869. I think it was in Panola County, Mississipp i, but he has an unmarked grave. In 1870, Adeline and kids lived out of Water Valley, Yalobu sha County, Mississippi about 3 or 4 miles going toward Shuford, Panola County. Shuford is t he little spot(was town back then) not anymore, only Pisgah Church and Cemetery there now, w here Thomas Cross Gardner and Emma Gene Bell Gardner is buried. Permelia Adeline Powell Ga rdner died on October 6, 1894, same as William Young Gardner, no grave stone.It will tak e me a little bit to find my copy of the 1870, It will have page # and references. Sue.
