HYNDS Weakley Co. Tennessee

I am a descendant of the Hynds family of Weakley Co. Tennessee. I know the family migrated to Weakley Co. in abt 1839. This migration was through George Henry Hynds from Jefferson Co. TN. He married Sallie (Sarah) Jones on Jan 2, 1816. I am looking for any and all information on the birth and parents of George Henry Hynds. I have a year of 1775 in Virginia, however I can find no record to substantiate this. I have found that he was a Commissioner in 1803 in Newport TN. All help is greatly appreciated. Sarah Jones was born 1870 in Cocke Co. TN and was the daughter of Branch and Lucy Jones. Thank you in advance for any leads. George Henry Hynds was the father of Benjamin Davis Hynds, father of Constance Hardeman Hynds, father of Benjamin Matt Hynds, father of Kenneth Matt Hynds, my father. All except George Henry were born in Weakley County Tennessee. I do have a GED of my Hynds family from George Henry to present. I am willing to share any and all information on this line of the Hynds family.
