NOTES:  In 1857, Obediah and family moved to Tennessee in a covered wagon,
       leading a cow so they would have milk for their 5 small children.
       Elizabeth was expecting another child at the time.

        Obediah is remembered as being one of the first owners of a cotton
       gin in Crockett County, Tennessee. In the 1860 census, he was listed
       as an "overseer".

        Founded Elizabeth Church in Friendship, Crockett Co TN
       - 1873 plot of land purchased for $50; a log church was erected and
       named Elizabeth Church (in honor of his wife Elizabeth Jane). This
       building burned and in 1903 a church was built in an "L" shape. A school
       was soon built of similar construction.
      
        Charter members of the church were: Mr. E. B. Curtiss, Mr. & Ms. John
       DeShazo, Mr. & Mrs. Obediah Vernon, Mr. & Mrs. John Woods, Mr. & Mrs.
       R. F. Woodside, Mr. & Mrs. W. O. Vernon, Mr. & Mrs. Charlie Vernon and
       Mr. & Mrs. Tom Vernon.

        Children came from surrounding areas; some so far that eventually a
       dormitory was built to house them. It housed many of the teachers
       as well.
