Looking for information on John Tumbleson of Greenup Co., KY. John was born between 1790-1800 in VA, KY, or PA. He died 1844, Greenup Co. John was enumerated in the 1830 and 1840 U.S. Federal Census in Greenup Co. In 1830 he had a wife, 2 young boys, and 2 young girls living with him; in 1840 no wife is listed, and only 2 boys are living with him. We believe his children are:

Julia A. Tumbleson, born 9 Sep 1828, Greenup Co., died 30 Oct 1902, Greenup Co., married William B. Meek.

Lucinda Tumbleson, born about 1830. She is listed on a Greenup Co. court document in 1844 as the "infant orphan, " age 14, of John. Lucinda married Greenbury (or Greenbrier) Lee of Greenup Co.

Frederick Miles Tumbleson, born 26 Sep 1830, Greenup Co., died 16 Oct 1906, Greenup Co., married Mary Meek, 29 Nov 1852, Greenup Co.

William Rhodes Tumbleson (my husband's great-great grandfather), born March 1834, Greenup Co., KY, died 18 Mar 1909, Greenup Co., married Elizabeth A. Stevenson, about 1853,(they had 5 daughters, one son); following death of Elizabeth, William married a Jane Johnson 23 Feb 1887 in Lewis Co., KY (he and Jane had no children)

We have a possible marriage record for John in Bath Co., KY, but are not certain it's the same John Tumbleson of Greenup Co. We would like to hear from anyone researching Tumblesons in Greenup or Lewis Co. KY. We have been unable to make a connection to any of the Tumbleson lines in Adams Co., OH.
