I am researching my husband's Whitson roots but I have hit a brick wall in JAMES WHITSON. According to Tennessee State Marriages 1780-2002, he married Mary Toney 31 August 1832 in Washington County. He and Mary are in Jefferson County, District 13, in the 1850 Census with 7 children and Mary's mother (I think). According to the Census he would be born around 1793 in Tennessee. His son JAMES CARTER WHITSON is in Lauderdale County in the 1860 census but without his family. The two documents (Marriages and Census) are the only proof I can find of JAMES WHITSON. The Whitsons multiply like rabbits, name all their children the same name, and move constantly! If I didn't laugh at this, I would go crazy!! I would like to know who his father was, when he died, and where he is burried. Any help woul be appreciated. Thanks.
