While in my search for the parents of Griffith Tinney born 1784 in N.C. who later moved on to Jackson Co. Alabama; I did a search in genealogylibrary.com of the 1850 census for N.C. In Orange Co. I found John B. Tinney,age 43 born Mass. with his wife Jane,age 33 born in N.C.; children Sarah(age 11), William(age 9), Oregon(age 6), and Abdil Kordet(age 3)all born in N.C. along with Nathaniel Tinney(age73) born in N.C.Also enumerated is Almira Wright(age45) and Edwin Wright(age22) both born in Mass. Who do these people tie into?Would it be possible that Nathaniel who would have been born abt 1777 and Griffith 1784 are siblings?
