Chris, I am struggling trying to identify the parents of Thomas (H. or J.) Jetton. I am still unsure of the middle initial as it changes depending on the record. This man is in the 1870 Franklin Co. Census of Tennessee. He is living with a 16 year old William Jetton at the time of the census.
His birthday is close to the birthdate of the Thomas you ask about.
Here is what I know: Thomas Jetton b. approx 1824 Married Mary F. Prince in Franklin Co. Tn Aug. 17 1870 Mary Prince later married Isaac Rodgers and then P.G. Goff. She had 3 children John Thomas Jetton William R. Rodgers and Mary Goff.
