I am searching for any evidence identifying the parents of John T. East.

JOHN T. EAST, born 1800-10 in Virginia; died shortly before 27 Oct 1834 in Roane County. Married in 1827/8 to Sarah Ann, daughter of William W. and Sarah Baskett. John East came to Roane County not earlier than 1827 and is first recorded there in 1828. Following the death of her husband, Sarah East married 2ndly, on or shortly after 3 Oct 1835, Samuel Day, and bore her husband six more children. Samuel Day died in 1870 and Sarah soon after. Both were buried in Mammy Cemetery, east of the present town of Ozone, formerly Mammy, in Roane County.

John T. and Sarah Ann (Baskett) East had only two children-

1. ALONZO V. EAST, born 1829 in Roane County; died there 4 Jan 1895. He served during the Civil War in both the Confederate and Union armies. He was married 2 Jan 1850 in Crossville, Bledsoe County, TN to Emeline C. Jordan. She was born c1833 in North Carolina and died 1898-1900 in Roane County. Alonzo and Emeline had 16 children.

2. THOMAS H. EAST, born 22 Sept 1831 in Roane County; died there 28 July 1890. He was married 7 Oct 1851 in Smith County, TN to Mary Catherine Jordan, sister of Emeline. She was born 14 Feb 1836 in Tennessee and died 31 Dec 1901 in Roane County. Both were buried in Winton's Chapel Cemetery, Roane County. Thomas and Mary East had 7 children.

I'm looking for any information on a Columbus Allen East. He served in the Confederate Army (Tennessee Volunteers). I believe his fathers name was Alonzo (Lonzo) East. I need the name of who he married??? I have a name of Minnie C. Absent (unsure of the last name), she was supposedly a indian.

Columbus Allen East (1876-1952) 1st married Minnie Cordelia Abston (b. 2 June 1880, Roane Co. TN, d. 27 Jan 1922, Rockwood, Roane Co.), on 23 Dec 1899 in Roane County. He married 2ndly, Maude Catherine Lane (b. 8 March 1896, d. Oct 1992, Rockwood) on 24 Jan 1925 in Roane County. He had 9 children by his 1st wife and 4 by his 2nd.

Since Columbus was born in 1876 he could not have served in the Civil War which ended in 1865. He was one of the 16 children of Alonzo East.

Do you know the children Columbus & Minnie had? I'm looking for the James Conner East. And I believe Minnie was his mother?
