My g-g-g grandparents, Francis Wheatley (b. ca 1790s, possibly England) and Rachel Tannehill (b. ca 1790s PA), m. 1814 Nashville, TN, were in Christian Co., KY, by 1818 or so. He was connected with a bank in Hopkinsville for some time. Had children (all b. KY): Margrette (b. ca 1820), who m. John Slaughter; Jane (b. ca 1818), who m. Edward Bradshaw; Francis (male, b. ca 1820s); Wilkins (b. ca 1820s); and Henry Dawson (b. 1831), m. 1st Jane "Jeannie" Campbell (b. ca 1833 TN), m. 2nd Mary Elizabeth Holcomb in AR, moved to Waco, TX. Any information on this family appreciated. Would especially like to know Francis Wheatley's parents' names, place of birth, siblings, etc.
