It seems very probable that Martha Ann Street ( 1821-1897) is the daughter of the first marriage of Meshack STREET (1792-1867) .

Meshack STREET (1792-1867) was born in Virginia, and at age 43 married Elizabeth CLARK on 21 DEC 1835 in Halifax County, Virginia.

They are in the 1840 census in North District , Halifax, Virginia and have 6 minor children , 5 of whom were born before their marriage :
Names Birth Yr per 1850 Census
Mesheck Street 1792
Elizabeth Street 1796

Howard Street 1820
Ariel S Street 1821
Unknown male(10-14) c1828
Thos L Street 1831
Sarah Street 1838

They are in the 1850 census in Henry County , TN with Ariel, Thomas, and Sarah .

Martha Ann Street ( 1821 VA – 1897 TN) marries Asa Cox JR( 1822-1911) on 2 Dec 1841 in Henry County Tennessee. Their first daughter, Anne Elizabeth Cox is born in 1843, a second daughter in 1844 and then their first son is named Meshack M Cox ( 1846-1927) .

In the Henry County 3rd district of 1850 census the following are listed together :
#31 - Meshack Street
# 32 ASA Cox SR ( b 1771 Delaware ) and his wife Catherine Cox 9(b 1776 Maryland) who are grandparents of ASA Cox JR
#33 Meshack’s son Howard Street
#16 Asa Cox Jr ( 1822-1911) and his wife Martha Ann Street Cox( 1821-1897)

Questions to pursue:
1.Who was the first wife of Meshack STREET (1792-1867) .
2. When did Meshack STREET (1792-1867) come to Henry county? date of deed purchases?
3.What is significance of 1850 census report that Ariel S Street was born in Illinois? All other children are reported to have been born in Virginia.
4.Is there a Henry County will of Meshack Street who died 17 Oct 1867 ?
