John Jessee is a big mystery to me because I have found his marriage record in floyd county and the 1850 census of him in floyd county but after that I can't find a death record or him on anymore census records. His son Bird A. Jessee and his wife Elizabeth Napier were on the 1850 census with him. Bird appears 20 years later living with his wife in Frankiln County. Elizabeth doesn't show up on any census record until 1880 in Giles County. Sorry for all the detail just trying to show you the trouble I have been having with this side of my family.
