Guys, I have been working hard to connect my Furlows (who are all from Tennessee) to yours. I think I am there and we might be able to help one another.
Tennessee State census of 1850 shows Alexander (b 1769--I dont know where)
Now 1860 shows that Alexander is gone (goodness gracious he would have been 91 and as old as he was when he fathered this round of kids, is it any wonder!! :D)
Next door was JC (James) Furlow, 29
James H 6/12
My ancestor is JC (James) Furlow. I can confirm this is him and the wife and son (Melvina and James H)
What I cannot confirm is if this is YOUR Alexander but with the birth date and the age when he had these kids, it would stand to reason that there could easily and probably have been a first wife and children.
Can anyone say that I am on the wrong track?? Maybe you know something that makes my line of reasoning impossible. Otherwise, it is something to consider.
Oh, the 1870 census for Maury Co only had David, 38.
I know that James was in Williamson Co by then as he fought in civil war for Williamson CO. (Tennessee that is).
Any help would be appreciated!!!! Thanks so much
