James Irwin 1803-1883

Looking for other descendants of or info on James Irwin/Erwin, b. Sep 2, 1803, in TN. Died Oct 28, 1883, Mt Enterprise, Rusk Co., TX. Family legend says he ran away from home in TN at age of 12 and eventually changed name from Erwin to Irwin. Married Teressa Russell and had four children: Asa (m. Martha Phillips), Robert, Emily (aka Eliza) (m. Tom Lacey), and Russell Dudley. Don't know where Teressa was from, but 1860 census shows all children born in TX, oldest is Asa, b. 1845. After Teressa died he married Selena Neal of Panola Co, TX. James and Salena had 7 children: Christian, Allie (m. James Arnold), Sally (m. Warren Nall), Evaline (m. John Hines), Lucy (m. William Alexander), William (m. Bettie Richards), and Augustus (m. Maude Jopling). In 1880 census James listed his father's birthplace as "At sea" and his mother's as VA. Glad to share all I have.
