I read your where you were looking for George M Gattis after the 1850 Madison Co census. I have been looking for his son, Joseph B Gattis b TN, first found in Dunklin Co MO 1870 as a young single man. I have now found both of them in 1860 in nearby Stantonville, McNairy Co, TN. George Gaddis b 1801 NC, Martha b 1813 TN, Thomas M b 1847 TN, James b 1848 TN, and Joseph B b 1852. I understood the 'B' stood for Bynum, but now I believe it is probably Boswell. Do you know when and where Sarah Boswell died, if she did, and when George married the Martha above, if she is his wife? I want to be sure Joseph's mother is Sarah Boswell Gattis and not Martha. I have Joseph B Gattis's descendants if anyone is interested.
