Julie,

I have not been able to find the parents of JT or his origin. However, I think it is very likely JT's brother was Daniel Tolleson
of Union County, SC. Daniel and John Tolleson acquired land in Fairfield/Craven County in the late 1760s early 1770s. JT eventually moved to Spartanburg and Daniel moved to Union County, SC.

I believe that John Tolleson was not married to a Dehart. There is enough available information that has convinced me that JT married Anna/Amy Muse in 1767-68 in Craven County, SC.

Supposedly, Aaron Dehart was the father of Amy Tolleson, however, I have found Aaron Dehart consistently in Amhearst,VA. from 1763-1793. Also, Dehart researchers say that they do not have any proof that Aaron had a daughter, Americas or Amy, or lived in SC.

Anna/Amy Muse was the daughter of James and Sophia (Pope) Muse who cane from Prince WM.County, VA. to Cumberland County, NC. James died in 1756-58 and Sophia married John Morrison. The family moved to Fairfield County abt. 1760. John Tolleson was a neighbor of Thomas Muse (brother of Anna/Amy Muse)in Fairfield County. Land Plats show theirlands adjacent to each other.

I am glad to share information.
