I have an undocumented note that John Norton b 1787 was a brother to Edward Norton who died in Franklin Co, TN in 1817. Edward's widow, Ellender (Nellie) Gibson Norton got land in Lawrence Co in 1818.Her land was S27 T7 R9w.
John Norton also went down and got land in Lawrence Co in December 1818. He was at the time living in Lincoln Co, TN.His land was S29 T4 R6w.
There was a John Norton who divorced Jane Norton in 1830 in Lawrence Co.
Jane Norton appeared on the 1830 and 1840 Lawrence Co censuses and the children were in the house with her.
John Norton (I don't know if he was the same John) was in the 1840 Lawrence Co census.
Does anyone know anything about these two individuals?
