Hello--My name is Larry Gray Ruff. My ggGrandfather, John Desha Mathis married Mary Ann Mason in Claiborne Co., TN in 1839. All I know of him is that he was from KY.
His middle name suggests that he was a desendant of the Desha family. Most likely his Mother's maiden name or her Mother's.
It would be very helpful if one of you could check your files to see if a Desha married a Mathis sometime before 1839.
Thank you so much.
PS--the name Desha was carried down to my Great Uncle Fred Desha Ruff.
