Major brickwalls in my research:

JOHN W. ASKEW. John was born 1818 in Tennessee and died 4 June 1904 in Malta, (Bowie County) TX. He married Mary LOONEY born 1826 in Alabama (daughter of David Looney and Isabella Lawhon). They had 9 children, Margaret Ann b. 1844, Martha b. 1848, Britton Gatewood, b. 1850, Clara Elizabeth b. 1854, James Taylor, b. 1856, George H, b. 1858, Matilda b. 1860, Sarah Alice b. 1866 and Orre Della b. 1868. Mary LOONEY died sometime before 1870, perhaps after the birth of Orre Della. John remarried a lady with the initials of M.J. b. 1839. They had 3 children, Laura b. 1873, M.L. (female) b. 1875 and Augustus b. 1878. Britton married Susan Powell WARD (daughter of Henderson Ward and Elizabeth (maiden name unknown) There is a possibility that there is Choctaw Indian in the Askew line.
Also searching for JAMES MANOR/MANER/MAINER, born 1860, in Tennessee, and his wife, NETTIE MATILDA JANE FOX, born 1861, also in Tennessee.

If anyone thinks they may have a connection to my family, I would love to hear from you.
