By 1830 census they were living in Jackson Co., (which I gather covered a lot more territory then - did the 1872 court house fire destroy early records from counties formed from Jackson Co also, or just affect records covering areas within the 1872 county boundaries?) Several of Thomas and Margaret's children were also b. TN. Family moved ca. 1837 to MS, then to TX ca. 1852. Father of Thomas and William **may** have been named WalkerROBERSON, as Walker was middle name of one of each of their sons and their land patent in TX was in name of Walker Roberson.

David Brown Sun Aug 25 18:31:14 1996
Joshua CAMPBELL moved from Greene County, TN shortly after marrying Sarah KERBAUGH IN May 23, 1853. Sarah was the daughter of John KERBAUGH of Greene Co. John had married Betsey (Elizabeth?) Wampler in 1821. John was born in 1785 in TN or VA but shows up on the tax rolls in Greene Co in 1805. John had several brothers and/or children who are listed in the 1830 census. It is hard to disentangle who might be who and the 1850 census sheds little light. The above named Sarah was born in 1834 and is consistently listed in subsequent censuses as such. Betsey (Elizabeth?) was born in 1802 and possibly was the daughter of Michael WAMPLER who was born c1765. Again there are many WAMPLERS in the area all of whom are probably related but it is difficult to determine who is who. My subject Joshua CAMPBELL is hard to trace. The 1850 census shows only two Joshuas in TN and only one in Greene Co. He was living with Jackson CAMPBELL who may have been his brother but was far too young to be his father. Any help with Joshua or in untangling the WAMPLERS and KERBAUGH as well as any information on their forebearers would be appreciated.

Tom Sisco Tue Aug 13 06:36:20 1996

1820: John Sisco Sr., John Sisco Jr., Issac Sisco, Job Sisco, Jacob Sisco, Sanders Sisco. Looking for marriages, Land Records, Wills, Residence. Sanders, Issac, John Jr., Job, Jacob may be the sons of John Sr. John Sr. shows up in N.C. in the 1887 veterns census. A John the right ages later shows up in TN. Any information leading me to a connect of these people would be helpful.
1830: By this time my family is well established in Jackson County. A Sanders, William and Jaiole show up in the 1830 census. Jaiole is a mystery. He shows up here, but disappears by 1840. I believe Jaiole could be Sanders son John of 1840. William appears to be a son of Sanders, also. This is where my delimna starts. Both Jaiole and Sanders have sons in the age bracket of my Gr. GR. Grandfather Jacob. If anyone had evidence one way or the other I would sure appreciate it.
1840: We'er everywhere! Jackson Co. census lists 2 Issacs, James, 4 Johns,Sanders and W (William?) Sisco. Any Marriages, Land Records, Wills, or Residence data would be appreciated.
1850: My Gr.Gr. Grandfather Jacob Sisco is married to Sarah Elizabeth Shrum circa 1848. Their first child is a girl Lucinda Jane Sisco circa 1849. I would really love to find a marriage contract. Most, if not all, Sisco's living Jackson County are related.
1860: My Gr.GR. Grandfather Jacob has moved to Missouri and is either back on his way back. I cannot find him in any census records to date. He has two sons born in Missouri John S. Sisco and My Gr. Grandfather William Henry Sisco. Sanders Sr. is still alive at 87 (if the census dates are correct). Some of the family my be in the area of Macon County and Clay County. Jackson MCD's 2, 4, 13.If anyone has any information about the whereabouts of Jacob this information would be invaluable.
1870: Jackson Co. Jacob dies about 1874. I would really like some information about this.
1880: My Gr. Grandfather William Henry Sisco marries Mary Elizabeth Kirby in Jackson Co. on August 29, 1880. I have a certified copy of the marriage license. However, they appear to move to Macon Co. their first born is a son Charley Curtis Sisco. He was born in Willette, TN. on June 1, 1881. Two daughters were born in Willette and one daughter in Lafayette before they move to Arkansas just before the turn of the century. Mother Mary Elizabeth, according to a family bible sheet was born in Lafayette, Tn on Nov. 18, 1860. Also, by this time several of Williams brothers and sisters have left Tennessee for Missouri or Arkansas and cousins have moved to Kentucky.
