I am currently researching my family history. I am looking for any info of a Jefferson Cole (wife Jamima), Matt Cole, Martha Cole, and their Mother Elizabeth. They were in Jefferson County, TN in 1860-70. I am also looking for a Jacob Cody (in Cocke Co, TN in 1850). James Perry Owensby was born in this general area in 1846. William Henry Harp (wife Mara Wilson) was in the Claiborne Co area. Tobias Harp (wife Delilah Carroll) was also in this area. The year would be 1800? They tend to jump back and forth across the Tn & Ky line repeatedly.
