I have been looking for a while now and have been hung upon on records of birth and marriage for these two ancestors. James b. 1757 d. 1829 in TN. Zachariah b. 1795 d. 1844 in IL. I know James married Mary Tomlinson on Nov 17, 1780 but where and what proof? I also know that Zachariah was born on Oct 12, 1795 in KY and married Francis S. Blackard on Jun 24, 1819 in Maury Co. TN but I have no proof to provide to the D.A.R. If anyone out there can help me I would be greatly thankful.
