While tabbing around on GenForum, I looked at Franklin Co.,Tn. genforum where I found an inquiry from Penny Chilton, regarding Bibb Family, 1830 census. (message 62 of 416)
This messages states that Winifred Knight Bibb is the mother of Mary H. Bibb(born 4 July 1820).(This is the wife of Elisha G. Adair).Winifred was the "daughter of William and Temperance (Bibb) Knight.").
Does Penny mean thatWinifred's father was William Bibb or William Knight?Was Bibb the maiden name for Temperance? Penny was looking for Winifred'shusband. Was Winifred a Bibb who married a Bibb?
Mary H. Bibb who married E.Garland Adair had these siblings: Jane A.T. Bibb wife of Elisha Jones Joshua W. Bibb , may have married Elizabeth Bratton Temperance Knight Bibb wife of Solomon W. Smith Margaret C. Bibb, wife of Joseph Starnes
Chilton states that Winifred was named in her father's will written 1828, recorded 1832, "but it appears that she is already a widow at this time.Court documents establish names of children listed above.
Franklin County, Tennessee court records include: R-126(25 Jan 1840) Elisha M.Jones to Jane & John Knight.Sale of slave (William) for $1835.Elisha M.Joneswas an agent for Joshua W.Bibb).Witnesses to transaction were: J.L.Starnes; Temp. Bibb; Elisha Adair.I believe this was from a summary or index to the actual record.
