Dennis Sawyers is on the 1833 Cumberland Co., KY tax list. All of the tax lists from 1806 through 1832 are gone.1834 through 1836 are gone.1838 and 1839 are gone.In other words; only 1833 and 1837 exists during the 1830's.There were no Sawyers there in 1837.
In Cumberland Co., KY records, Lewis PIERCE was assignee of Dennis SAWYERS; who was assignee of James HAGGARD, for 50 acres on Smith Creek.Charles SAWYERS was one of the chain carriers.This was 1835.
This suggests that Dennis had actually lived in part of Cumberland Co. that became Clinton Co. KY in 1836.
The first Clinton Co. tax list is 1837 which had both Dennis and Charles Sawyers.Also on the 1838 tax list.Neither of them appeared on the 1839 tax list.I suspect Dennis had left sometime in 1839 before the tax man came around; and was on his way to MO.This is also likely why we have never been able to find him on the 1840 census in KY or MO.He may have been on the move at that time based on the 1850 census location of the where his children were born.
Charles Sawyers was on the 1830 Cumberland Co. KY census.Also in 1820 and 1810.He was the only Sawyer/Sawyers that appeared on those Cumberland Co. censuses.He was 50-59 years old in 1830; and did have one 5-9 male and a 15-19 male.That 15-19 male is almost certainly Dennis and Charles was the father. Being 15-19 in 1830, would place him (Dennis?) born 1811-1815.
In 1820, Charles Sawyers has one male under 10, and one male 10-15.He also has four females under 10 and one female 10-15.He and his wife were both 26-44 years old at this time.
In 1810, Charles has one male under 10 and one female under 10.Charles is 26-44.He has a 16-25 year old wife.
So... it looks like Charles only had two sons.He did appear to have several daughters also. As of the times the censuses were recorded.
