I have made some inroads on this line since posting the query on "Jesse STATON and others". I believe Jesse's first wife was Sally or Sarah Ann JACKSON, daughter of William and Mary JACKSON of Bertie and Martin Co. Need supporting evidence of this relationship other than William JACKSON's will.
Who was Elizabeth STATON the wife of?
I believe Thomas STATON, son of Jesse and Sarah (JACKSON) STATON moved to Tennessee ca 1816. He was a certified chain carrier or surveyor of some kind. He probably had children named: Eli, Bennett, Harvey, James, Sally and possibly Redden, and Bythal and Cinderella. Anyone have more info. on this man?
Bennett and Thomas are in Gibson Co., TN by 1827 (deeds) having possibly been in Carroll Co., TN before. Bennett's firstname suggests that Thomas may have married first a BENNETT. Thomas and several sons are on the 1830 census of Gibson Co., TN. By 1840, most of his sons have moved to Tallahatchie Co., MS.
