Messer Norton, born1810 Franklin County, TN and died 1857 in Tippah County, Mississippi was the son of Edward and Nellie Norton. Edward died in 1817 in Franklin County, TN after being kicked in the head by a horse. I would like to find descendants of this Messer Norton. He married sisters, daughters of William Norton of Tippah, MS. William was living in Franklin County, TN when the 1813 tax list was compiled. He later got land in Limestone, AL....then later moved over to Tippah County, MS. There is incorrect information out there that this Messer was the son of John Huddleston Norton of TN and Tippah County, MS. He was not the son of John H Norton. I would like to find descendants of this Messer Norton.
