Hello, cousins...

My name is Ken Wagner. My great grandmother is Rebecca Jessee Weddle, daughter of Jacob and Nancy (probably nee CHILDS) Jessee. Nancy and her children can be found in the 1850 US census in Knox County Tennessee with her name spelled Jessey. I have found the family in the 1840 census in Knoxville and have determined that Jacob died between Feb 1848 (youngest child born 26 Oct 1848) and before 02 October 1848 when there was probate action dealing with his estate.
