I am a Dement Researcher. Charles Dement and Selah Thomas left NC and went to middle TN. Charles died in Madison Co. AL about 1820. Gilbert N. Bridges states that "Sely died in TN". I can only see a "snippet" view of his book. Is there a reference to his statement? Adopted daughter, Clarissa Edwards Dement m. William SHOLARS in 1805 in Sumner Co. TN Another DEMENT LINE: John Dement m. Charity BRIDGERS in 1788 in Johnston Co. NC. 1st child was Salla born 15 Mar 1789. 2nd child was Absolum b. 10 March 1792, 3rd child was Frances b. 12 Dec 1793 (m. Isaac HARRISON), 4th child was William b. 8 Nov 1796....They had 8 children in all. They were in 1790 Johnston Co. NC Edgefield Co.? SC in 1800, then Greene Co.TN, SMith Co. TN. Eventually to Lawrence Co. AL Does anyone have any further information on the Dement connections?
