Ellen,
I have found two separate lines of RossonÂ’s that have inhabited McNairy and Hardeman Co. My line is associated with Joseph Linville Rosson son of John Rosson. The other line has a David Werville Rosson who has a son Charles Francis Rosson born (by my records in 1867), fortunately the Charles Francis Rosson is ancestor of Myra Dew who is the researcher who provided me with this line of RossonÂ’s so I have a great deal of info about his descendants.
Below is the entire David Werville Rosson line that I have gotten from Myra. Below that is the other line (mine) that also inhabited McNairy and Hardeman. Hope this is readable pasted into a message.
