Lynda - Sounds like the FATHER might be Early Albertson, Jr., b. 24 Oct 1784 in NC, son of Early Albertson b. 1756 and Elizabeth Coulson b. 1758.He's mentioned in his father's Rev. War pension records.I have Nancy Averett as his wife.I don't have any children for Early and Nancy yet.
I found an Early A. I think might be him in Fentress Co TN in 1830 and 1840
My aunt Helen (whose extensive research back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s forms the majority of my info of that side of the family) had a note that this Early MIGHT have been married twice.AND, another researcher (Richard Bruce Wheeler) said his wife was Mary Wood.
So -- perhaps this is your Early 1824's father.What do you think?Do you have any marriage info on Early 1784 and Mary?
