I am descended from the Winford and Moss families of Lebanon, TN through my maternal grandmother, whose grandmother was Sarah Moss Wilson. Sarah Moss's mother was a Winford (either Sarah or Mary Elizabeth was her name. Her father was a William Winford. Sarah Moss Wilson's husband was Jacob Henry Wilson. Jacob Henry Wilson served during the Civil War. Would like more information on these families. I suspect that they settled in TN after the American Revolution and I understand that they owned quite a bit of land. Sarah Moss would have been born in Lebanon area probably 1835-40. Sarah Moss & Jacob Henry Wilson later moved to South Carolina/ Georgia coastal area and eventually migrated to Florida after 1900.
