I am descended from Candis Townsend. She was born April 7, 1814 and died April 7, 1902. Her father was Stephen who was born 1787 in VA and died january 5, 1815 in New Orleans, LA fighting in the battle of 1814. He married Mary Copeland in Overton Co. TN. His father was Joseph Townsend born march 28, 1761 in VA. and died December 1843 in Carroll Co. TN. One source says that his wife's first name may have been Mary. If you can go to geneology.com and go to Vol 29 Tree 331, it has all the descendants of Joseph Townsend. One name left out of Candis' children is Francis Mellissa Bilbrey which is my ggggg grandmother. I have a photo of her that I will send if you will email me your address.
