    Another genealogy has the names of some the children, and informationon James, but no first name for Thomas or his wife.  I see they lackIsaac, but have William and Thomas as two separate children.  We haveboth these names from other sources as the name of one son namedWilliam Thomas.

    Another document seems matches the names of William and Thomas as twoindividuals, associated wihth James, in a petition concerning land inAlabama in 1819.  These sound like the three brothers mentioned in theabove genealogy,.  Others have seemingly compressed William and Thomasinto one person as William Thomas or Thomas William.  No firm birthdates for Wililam and Thomas have been determined in sources I haveseen.

    Memorial of the inhabitants residents in the Cherokee Country relativeto the late order for their removal:

    To the Honorable the Secretary at War, Your petitioners viewing thecalamitous situation in which many of our citizens are placed, owingto an order recently described by the agent for Indian affairs of theCherokee Nation ordering all intruders on their lands to remove by thefirst day of July 1819. Your petitioners believing that the sameindulgence would be extended to them as has been the constant practiceto others in similar circumstances, induced them to settle on thelands lately ceded to the United States by the Cherokees on the northside of Tennessee River nor did the order ever appear until late inthe month of May of this year, leaving a removal of the citizensimpracticable if not impossible.

    Your petitioners are poor but industrious farmers and to deprive themof their hard earnings in the wilderness and thus destroy theirlabour, where will you petitioners apply for bread for their starvingfamilies; this order enforced will involve at least ONE THOUSANDfamilies in total ruins, nor will the evil end here. Your petitionersmust subsist somewhere & thus become unwelcome guests to the frontiercounties to buy a little support for their starving children. TheIndians are not desirous of having the intruders driven from this landNorth of Tennessee, those being few in numbers, & most of which havetaken reservations and are good neighbors, your petitioners thereforeknowing the lenity of their government and believing they will takeour case into consideration will ever pray:
