Looks like my George Perkins, born 1782 in either GA or NC found his way to DavidsonCo, TN by 1811. According to Ancestry.coms new database of early TN tax records, George paid taxes in at least 1811 and 1812. The image is unreadable for 1811, but 1812 is fine. Then according to his wifes Bounty Land Grant for W. of 1812 military service, he enlisted in HickmanCo, TN in Sept, 1814. After the War he eventually wound up in AL, Dallas county, in 1830 census. Between, 1815 and 1830. Looking for others who had family in the area about the same time who might have migrated similiarily.
