I find the above information on a "tree" at Ancestry.com and am trying to figure out a way to prove/disprove this. I find probate information for him in Chatham County, NC which was his official residence for many years.I have found that 2 of his daughters moved to Tennessee. The surname Tillman to Marshall county and the surname Womble to McNairy county.
Any ideas how I might accomplish this? No info if he was buried in Tennessee or the body transported back to NC.
