If you will notice in the document when talking in the 2nd
paragraph about Martha and Jesse, the dates of death do not coincide with our info from the census. It says that Jesse died at 65 in 1865. He was supposedly born in 1810 so he would have been 55 at time of death. If Martha died in 1873 she would have been sixty three at time of death not
sixty. The writer has hers much closer than his. We will never know if the writer got this info himself or if it came from Jaspers' memory. For James Armstrong to have been in the war of 1812, that means Martha was 2, so if he fathered her at a young age we can look for him in the 1790
census for Georgia, county unknown. I am assuming that Jesse and Martha met in the same area that they were reared in. Do they have censuses in 1790? Now if we can locate our Henry Howard and James Armstrong in the rosters of persons who fought in the war of 1812, they might also have some more info for us. Also I wanted to let you know that the Mormon church in Salt Lake City, Utah has all of their books, tapes, videos, microfilm and such listed on the net. We can't read it online but they give all the
category numbers so that we can go to a local mormon genealogical site to view them after ordering them for viewing. The site has a locator for finding local genealogical sites. Another thought is if we can locate an obituary on Timney J., Samuel Green, Jesse Junior, Sarah A., or Marthenia (by the way, where did she go I wonder), then we might be able to get some more much needed info.

Good Luck to All of us
