I have a John Stinnett/Stennett b. 1805 TN. I'm told he married a Cherokee Indian with a last name of Henson. They had a daughter, Caroline, b.1830 TN. They had about 5 other children. Aprox 1835-37 the family migrated to Cape Girardeau. Fmaily history says they traveled the Ohio River to Missouri and that the wife died during the trip. John married Elizabeth Haas Hilderbrand in May 1838 and had 3 children: Barbara, Daniel, Catherine.
Caroline m. John Lewis (b. 1810 SC, d. 1866 MO) in 1847. I've been told that Caroline or her siblings did not live with her father and his 2nd wife.
