My GGGF was William Land, born about 1830 Cocke County Tennessee, Died 1858, Monroe County Tennessee, Wife: Jane Garrett born about 1828 Sweetwater, Tennessee, Monroe County, Death unknown.
William Land (CA 1830) is well documented to be the son of Ava Land. I have not been able to determine who his father was.I have entertained the idea that Ava was an unmarried mother with the surname Land, but have not been able to confirm or refute that either.
William Land died soon after James William Land was born. There was a connection somehow to Fannin County Texas. William and Jane may have moved there briefly while James William was still a baby then returned to Monroe County where William Land died.Janelater remarried to James Cook.
Anyone else studying these folks? Thanks, Ron Lands
