Ron Locke I have a couple of ancestors buried in Messer Cemetery; Joseph MESSER & Martha Ann LOCK d. 24 Nov 1875; and Issac MESSER & Nancy E. LOCK d. 9 Jul 1906.

Vernon Purvis My great-grandmother, Nancy Ellen SPURR, married either a George or Will THACKER sometime around 1880. Nancy was from Owen county. In the Anderson county census of 1880 there is a Will THACKER married to a Nancy. Could this be them? They had at least two children. Born around 1885 were Rosa Zella THACKER who died in 1949 and her twin Richard, who died at birth. George/Will THACKER was most likely dead by 1888 when she remarried to Ben PURVIS. Anyone in Anderson county or studying the THACKERs have any information on this?
