Thanks for answering my message.
My Mourning Wyatt was my GG grandmother.
She is listed in the Sumner Co.Tn. 1850 census as head of household and a weaver.
she had 3 children Rebecca--jane and john.
the 4th child was Judea Ann. Judea was her 2nd child. She is listed next door the sameyear married to Samuel Shelton.
judea and samuel were married in Robertson C. Tn in 1850. Aparently before the Census was taken.By 1860 they had 5 children with one born that year and 2 more by 1864.
1860 censua shows them still in Sumner Co.
with her mother Mourning and brother John
living with them. sam was in the civil war. he was captured and did not return after the war. ( died in prison ) some time later judea married John F. True together judea and John had 5 more children,the last being born when che was about 50 years old. In about 1882 shortly after their last child was born.
