There is an 1810 Rutherford County census
online and it is free.
It can be found on the Rutherford Gen
web site and also on the Census project.
I do not have the web address.
Thank You Rutherford Co.
hosts for transcribing and making
this valuable research tool available
I do have a couple of questions.
Did this census include all of Rutherford
County??? Where were the areas included??
A specific question is where did Obediah
Garner live?? Where did a man named String
field live (pg 40?? Where did James Taylor live (pg.20}. I can't recall if William Lytle was
included in this census??
These people are listed, but I don't
know what part of the County they lived
My Ancestor Joseph Guess from Orange Co.,N.C.
served in the Rev.War. His Officers included
Lytle, Taylor and Gen. Rutherford.
He moved to Rutherford County, Tn.
probably after 1807. He had married
Constance Taylor in N.C. in 1787.
It is my belief she was closely related to William Lytles wife, who was a Nancy Taylor
Constance was possibly her Aunt or Sister and possibly a sister to Thomas Taylor. One of Joseph and Constance Taylor Guess's daughters Margaret "Peggy" married a son of Obediah Garner,
John Garner in 1816, in Rutherford County.
John Garner was a widower with children and only
lived for about a year after his marriage
to Peggy Guess. They had one child, a son
Joseph and Constance Taylor Guess and their
family moved to Caldwell County Ky.
around 1820. It has been very difficult
to find any records of this family in
Rutherford Co. Tn., except for the Ref in the Rev. War Application, Peggys marriage, and
the Guardianship of her son William Garner
abt. 1820, John Garners estate settlement.
In Josephs Rev. War application, he refers
to a Teacher in Rutherford County, named
Stringfellow. I think Mr. Stringfellow??
had helped the family write some information
in the Bible. I thought this might be
the Stringfield listed in the 1810 census.
Joseph and Constance had children in school
in Rutherford Cty. abt. 1817 & one of
their daughters had taken the Family Bible
to school, where it was stolen during the
night. This was mentioned on Joseph Guess's
Rev. War pension application.
Does anyone know where
the School might have been?? This would
really help me identify where in Rutherford
County my Guess family lived.
Does anyone know where the Stringfield or
Stringfellow family lived???
