Hello Everyone! I just found Henry Canipe of Cleveland Co., NC listed in the 1880 Cocke Co., TN census. Henry's first wife, Sarah Caroline Hager d. abt 1844 according to your Canipe genealogies. They had 7 children. Albert and (Edward) Maxwell died in the Civil War - Co. F 55 NC Infantry. John A. Canipe survived - in the same company. Margaret is his second wife (m. abt 1845) - no idea of her maiden name. It looks like they had 11 children. So, Cocke Co., TN is a breakthrough for me - perhaps someone knows where they went after 1880?
