Liz, Have just reread your message posted in 2000 on Argos in Henderson Co. TN. And am wondering if you had any success with them? I answered you in Nov 2003 but moved shortly after that to Texas. I'm still working on the Argos as the possible family name of my greatgrandmother Sarah b. 1828 in NC and married to a James Arnold in Henderson Co. TN. about 1844. More by the process of eliminating all the Argos in Henderson Co. TN between 1810 and 1860 I have come to believe the family my ggrandmother could possible be a part of is one where the mother was a widow and head of the family by 1840. I know this is the family you are looking at with the mother named Sarah and children listed as John, Elizabeth, Rita, Lydia, and Nancy. I don't have paper documentation yet but plan to get to Henderson Co. TN soon and see what I can find. I've been told many of the records have been destroyed by courthouse fires which makes it difficult to prove anything.
I will be pleased to share info. if you are interested.
