I believe the parents of John South were William South b. abt 1768 (no other info) This John South was on the Census: 1820, Franklin co Tenn age 50-60
This William South has 4 sons (probably more children): Thomas, John, Joseph, & Benjamin Guy South.
Benjamin Guy South b. abt 1810 married Eliza Manerva Sherrill and had 9 children born in TN.
Hope this helps.
