Am looking for William Scaggs. He married Susannah Brashears Feb. 14, 1828, in Lawrence, TN. I can not find these people in the 1830 census. In 1840, Susannah shows up in Lawrence, TN, without William. There are three children in the household: Sarah A (born about 1832), Elvira (born about 1833), and James M. (born about 1835). In later census, Elvira Crook (believed to be the same Elvira) says her father was born in TN.
William Scaggs may have been Choctaw.
I am assuming William Scaggs died between 1835 and 1840. But the only record I can find of him is the marriage record in 1828.
If anyone has any idea who this William is, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
