Lisa & Cynthia, I have the children of Jacob Bethany, b. 1775, and Sarah Higgins, b. 1793, as: Jacob, William W., Thomas N., Parmelia M., Phinis Thornton, and Catherine N.However, I think Sarah may be a second wife, with Jacob & Wm. W being from a prior marriage, because she isn't old enough to be their mother.
I also show Julia McGhee as Phinis wife, m. June 25, 1840 in Noxubee Co., MS.
This is not my direct line so I have not verified most of it.It is information from other researchers that I have accumulated.
