Hello again Carrie. I have a slight problem. Are you sure about Patience Light being born in 1802. You see here is the thing. My Flower Mullins was born in 1759, in Guilford Co. N.C. now then he had a son named "Swift Flower Mullin" (Sr), who was born in 1775 in
Elizabethtown, Bladen Co. N.C. but I Know for a fact that "Swift Flower Sr." was married to Elizabeth Ann (Betsy) Bean, (who was a Cherokee Indian Princess, until she married Swift), And they had their first son William Martin Mullin in 1808, and Then Granvile Mullin, and then finally "Swift Flower Mullin" (Jr.) in 1817. Now then my sheets, relatives, and census show that Flower Mullin was Married to Patience Light,I found him in the 1830 census for Hawkins Tenn.. It said he was 70 years old which would have been about right. It said there was a woman in the household who was between 50 - 60 years old. I thought that was Patience. but then Patience must have been his second wife, and not the mother of these 3 boys if she was born in 1802. Do you have a list of their children. I would really like to know? Thank you Scott Spencer.
