I'm following a lead on my great, great grandfather, Cecilius Calvert Bayless. In 1860 he received land from the Federal government in Little River County. He later had a son named Allison Benton Bayless who was my great grandfather. My reason for posting here is that at the time Cecilius received his land grant he listed his residence as Sevier County, not Little River County.
Has anyone come across Cecilius in Sevier County research?
I do not know his DOB or his death date, where he was born or where he died.
His wife (marriage date, placeunknown) was Jane Roland.
Anyone with leads, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
