WOW! That was a quick response.
Yes, I have all that you just sent.
I have not connected the John Leighton that married Rebecca Adams. I think Rebecca was a sister of Sarah that married Isaac.
The John that was in the 1830 census, I beleive, was the one in the 1850 census that had the wife named Elizabeth.
I would really like to have the parents of Isaac. In the 1880 census Isaac gave his mother's birth place as Ireland and his father's as England.
I believe his parents were James Leighton that married Ann Burrell in 1786.
The William that married Nancy Sorrells and the Polly that married Thomas Sorrells, gave their father's name as James.
William was born in 1791. I have his birth as Nelson Co. However, there wasn't a Nelson Co. in 1791.

Thanks again, Gail. You have a lot of knowledge in the area that I have been researching.
