Who was the husband/father who must have died before the 1850 census of Knox Co.? The family reads Mary Campbell 43; Elizabeth 23; William 22; Anna 21; Isabel 19; Rachael 16; George W. 13; Thomas J. 11; Daniel 10; Nelly 9; John 6; James 4; and Alexander 2, all born in North Carolina. So they had just moved to TN if census state of birth is correct.
Did the older children marry and stay in TN when the 6 siblings went to Texas?? In 1860 William, Daniel, Nelly, John, James, and Alexander are living in Dallas Co. Would like to learn what happened to the other children, and what the father's name was. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
