I noticed in your message there was a name change. My gggrandfather's name was James Ira Atkinson sometime after the 1880 TN census was taken changed to Adkerson, I know not why. Ira married a Catherine Elizabeth White in Hademan County, TN in 1859. I also have him being born around 1843. He also was supose to have a sister named (Nancy). This is data passed down form the eldest living at this present time.
Grooms Brides Surname Surname ATKINSON Ira to WHITE Catherine 11 July 1859.
I have not seen this following Census but this data was sent to me.
Here's the household:
1850 Federal Census, Madison County, TN:

Nancy C., age 13, born TN
Ira, age 10, born TN
Can you help me on this line.
