Thank you for the responses. The ancestor that I am referring to is Steven Newborn, born 1826 in North Carolina (or 1833 in Tennessee, according to the other record; I have no explanation for the difference in birth years, but through my research I have determined that North Carolina and Tennessee are both valid birth places for him).
I have attached both records to this message, in case anyone will be willing or able to help. One of the records misspelled his name as "Stean," but the image shows that it was actually "Steve."
Thanks again! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
