Looking for any information on John COX. He was born in Jackson Co. about 1865 and died November 30, 1915 in Sumner Co. He was married two times. No information on the first wife nor names of 3 children he had from that union. He brought the first 3 children into his 2nd marriage to my ggrandmother Nora MABRY. He fathered 3 children with Nora before his death. The children with Nora are: George Thomas COX, born 1909; Charles Henry COX, born 1914; and Ruth Irene COX, (my grandmother) born Jan 1916 . Nora MABRY and all 3 of these children were born and raised in Sumner Co. Charles Henry COX's death info states his father's full name and that John Thomas COX was born in Jackson Co. There are COXs in Sumner Co. and I believe he must have been related to one of them to have even meet my ggrandmother. I can not find him in any Sumner Co. census thru 1880 on-line. I believe he probably started living there between 1890-1905. Any info appreciated. Thanks, Pamela Vick

In the 1820 census of Jackson Co.TN, there were many Curtis men listed. They included Joel, Moses and James. I am researching the family of Josiah Isaiah Curtis, and have reason to believe that James W. Curtis may be his father. I am wondering if Joel and Moses may be related to James, and if anyone has any knowledge of these Curtis men and a possible connection. Josiah and James both moved to Lauderdale Co. AL by the 1840's. Any help would be appreciated. Mary

Does anyone have a list of burials in the SAVAGE Cemetery located in northern Jackson County close to the Clay County line? If so, I would appreciate getting a copy by email. I believe this cemetery must be very small as it is not listed by USGS. Thank you.

Hi! I am looking for any information on George M. KIRK, listed on the 1850 Jackson Co. census with his wife, Rachel, and their children. Any info on George and/or Rachel (different sources have her as WILSON and BROWN), who are my ggg grandparent's, would be much appreciated. Two of their children, Stephen and George, Jr. were twins. The 1860 Jackson Co. census shows the twins with the T.S. TINSLEY Family (7th district #903). George, Sr. had taken his family to Houston, MO. I am assuming Rachel died sometime before that move, since George is listed with wife Jane on the 1860 MO census. George and Rachel's last child was born in 1850.

I am working with 3 other CARTER Family Researchers. We are trying to identify, place in proper family, and determine relationships, if any, the various CARTER Families that settled and lived on/near Jennings Creek, Jackson County, TN between 1810 to 1850. This area was in District 4 in 1840 and in Districts 4 and 16 in 1850. Names of head of household include: William (Sr.), Zachariah, Nelson, Reuben and William (Jr.) CARTER. There very well may be more that we have not identified, especially the female family members. All of these men appear to have migrated to Jackson County, TN from North Carolina. Any information or help would be greatly appreciated. No tidbit of information too small or unimportant. And, of course, we are willing to share information.

Joseph WHITNEY received land grants in Jackson County in 1813 and 1816. He was married to a lady named Elizabeth, maiden name unknown. His sons, Wade, and Aaron served in the war of 1812 in Capt Henry West's company of Col James Raulston's 3rd regiment from Jackson County. Wade's wife was named Susan, maiden name unknown. Aaron's wife was named Rachel, maiden name unknown. I believe this family came to Jackson County from Fairfield District South Carolina. Wade was my 4th great-grandfather. Does anyone have any information on this family, such as maiden names of wives, or sister(s) of Wade and Aaron? Levi LEE of capt Henry West's company kept a diary during the war of 1812. Does anyone know where to find a copy of this diary?

Looking for information on the children of William ROGERS, who was born about 1780-90 in Chester Co., SC, but later moved to Tennessee. William was the son of Clayton and Betridge SADLER ROGERS. William supposedly had 14 children -- 4 daugthers and 10 sons. Of the 10 sons, 7 were supposedly Methodist ministers. The only offspring I know for certain about is my great-grandfather, Jefferson C. Rogers, who was born in 1820 in Tennessee. Jefferson C. married Nancy Adaline CARDER. They lived in Bledsoe County in 1850, later moved to Smith, White and Wilson counties. He died in 1906 in Wilson County. There was a William Rogers listed on the Maury County tax rolls in 1816 and in the 1820 census rolls, and I'm wondering if this could have been my William or possibly one of his sons. Appreciate any help on this "brick wall" in my family. Jay Rogers in San Antonio TX
