    John's death certificate reports that both his parents were born in UK, but other family sources report his father was born in Virginia, as reported in Virginia censuses, (though some genealogies say Tennessee).  Censuses report his mother's birthplace as Virginia also.  His father's parents were both born in Virginia.  The death certificate also reports that he himself was born in Haskell Co TX, but in the 1870 census, he was with his family in Coffee County, Tennessee, 7 years old, reported born in Tennessee.
