It took me a while but I think I've found all the census records for James Samuel Tedder (see below).I'm curious about the Sarah Ming living with James & Mary (his first wife) since I am uncertain of Mary's last name - could be Meigs, but my Granny had notes with the name Minger.So if anyone knows who this Sarah Ming is, I'd be interested in hearing from you.
In 1880 James is living next door to a widow - Mary Welsh born abt 1812 in TN.James' third wife, Mary Welch died in 1867 in childbirth and by about 1870 he had married Rebecca Jane O'Barr.So I'm curious if perhaps there's a connection between the third wife and this neighbor Mary Welsh.
I've always thought that James was born in Georgia, possibly Thomaston, but all the census records just add confusion.Sometimes they have his birthplace listed as South Carolina, sometimes North Carolina and then the last one Georgia.Anyone know where he was born?
Would love to hear from anyone who has an interest in this line!Thanks! Trisha
