A little about the Publishers of these pages:

Mary Katherine Dancy Smith: Born and raised in Dancyville, she also roamed the hills and valleys. This can be very helpful when looking for a long lost house, cemetery or tombstone. I doubt if a page can be found on this site that she has not had a hand in. She has run down data, people, pictures, copies and  did most of the 'foot work' required to put the site together. When not running down material for this site, Mary Kay and husband Kenny, are involved in Civil War reenactment. Mary Kay completed the Dancyville Methodist Cemetery read in 2001. Using Church records and the 1975 survey of the cemetery, and her own knowledge and research, she was able to provide the most extensive and accurate record ever compiled on the Methodist Cemetery.

James Karl 'Buddy' Dancy : Born during the great depression in Paris, Tennessee(I really like my Aunt Mil's version best, she says, "I was conceived in Dancyville and born in Paris") Korean War era Air Force Veteran; Retired hospital food service director; Avoided the computer as long as I could.  A  person with a bevy of names; Jim, Jimmy, Buddy, and called Dancy by some, I can't resist comment on my middle name 'Karl'. My parents actually gave me the middle name 'Kerr', pronounced Karr. The attending physician, a woman, strange in its-self  for those days, apparently misheard the 'Kerr' (Karr) and wrote Karl on my birth certificate.  I was happy when first  learning  of this mistake but after reading about the Kerrs in my genealogy, especially Louisa Jane Kerr Dancy, my great grandmother, I now feel a little disappointed.
