I wonder where William Jackson and Sophia Unknown were married? Sarah appears to be the oldest child b abt 1840 when Wm and Sophia were abt 23 yrs old. So Wm & Sophia were in TN by 1840. Are they listed in Carter Co marriages?

Where was Hampton in 1870?

The child William 16 in 1860 and Thomas age 6 in 1850 possibly the same person.--Janiejac 08:42, 2 June 2008 (EDT)
