My line is as follows: James Downing b. 24 Jan 1772 in Burke, NC married Mary Gardner on 7 Mar 1793. Mary Gardner b. 24 Aug 1772 in Williamson, NC was the daughter of William Gardner and Jane (Richey) Gardner.

They had the following 12 children:
William Downing b. 31 Jan 1794

(Their children born after 1794 were born in Williamson, Tennessee)

John G. Downing b. 16 Jul 1795
Agnes Nancy Downing b. 28 Mar 1797
Thomas Downing b. 29 Jun 1799
James Downing b. 5 Apr 1801 ....died at Sea
Samuel Downing b. 19 Apr 1803
Henan Darley Downing (TWIN) b. 28 May 1805
Alexander Henen Darly Downing (TWIN) b. 28 May 1805
Margaret (Peggy)Downing b. 3 Jul 1807
Elijah Downing b. 17 Jan 1811
Johnson Downing b. 20 Sep 1813
Missaniah Downing b. 4 Nov 1816

I come through James who married Lydia Williamson on 27 May 1820 in Lincoln County, TN.

James also married Polly Bell on the 3 of October in 1857. He married a Mary Bell Carlisle also, but I have no dates of that marriage.

Samuel married a Rebecca Williamson. I believe that she is Lydia's sister but I have not made that connection as yet. Have you? Do you have any other info?

I have spouses of most of these children. Their surnames include WILLIAMSON, LAWRENCE, COLLINS, McCLAIN, BEARDEN, GOODWIN, RAMSAY.
