  • There are other children in this family.  I have included some to indicate the relationships among some of the neighbouring families.  Members of several families married each other in several generations:   Mullinax, Gaines, Evatt, Jones, and others.

    Other children not shown here are Matilda (possibly born 1813), Sarah (b 1816), Frances P  (b 1818) and Thomas Hallum  (b 1823).  The birth year of Marinda Jane may be 1825 instead of 1813, according to a discrepancy in sources.
