I am trying to find out about my GGGrandfather Jasper Atchley who was born in East Tennessee about 1825. I find no record of him till 1847 when he married Elizabeth Wells, also from East Tennessee. They were married in Madison County Alabama. I have found her lineage all the way back to England and France. I have reason to believe that Jasper's first name might have been James but I'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for families that are related to Robert Cowan b. 1744. He lived in Sullivan County, Tn until 1826 and is buried in the Old Delaney Cemetery (which I understand has a different name today). Will take about any information. DNA makes him not a member of any of the Philadelphia Cowans in the same area. He is more like a McDonald in dna. His wife was a daughter of General George Rutledge. Her name was Nancy. I have the line all the way back to him and it has been reproven for 30 years but the dna threw us a loop.

Letting anyone that is interested there is a website called titlesearcher that has all the deeds (almost) from Washington County, Tn scanned in. There is a 7 day free trial period, then the website costs $35/monthly. There is a cost of about $2.00 for copies/page I think. I will know more later when I try it out. I have 16 deeds in that county and have copies of about 9 in Sullivan County. Hunting hard for a man who was suppose to be Scotch-Irish but think he is Scot and may have come into the country in Charleston???

I am researching many families who lived in Tipton County Tennessee. I made a discovery in the 1860 US Census that indicated that one of my ancestor families had several children, previously unmentioned.

James McLister [spelled McLeaster in the 1860 Census record] and wife Margaret are listed as having a male child, A. McLeaster, age 10 (1850) born SC ... and daughter H McLeaster, age 3, (1857) born TN.

The only child of James and Margaret McLister that i have on record is William Alexander McLister (1864-1919) who is my great-grandfather. I hope someone else may have some indication of these other children. If they survived would have been 20 and 13 respectively in the 1870 Census, but they are only listed in the 1860 Census.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
