John lived approximately 1830 to 1868/1869 (do not have death date) in Sequatchie County, Tennessee and Marion County, Tennessee. He was a wealthy land owner in Sequatchie Valley. I have records of several land grants
John was married twice: (1) Pernina Sneed, and (2) Ruth Griffin. By both wives, there were about 11 children each.
Looking for his parents bron 1790-1795 in North Carolina.
