Re: John Robert Paul/Wabash Co. IL
I just found your post today.Sorry to be so late in reading it.John and Eliza Paul are my ggggrandparents.Just to add a couple of things.....
John Paul was in Culpeper Co. by 1830 I believe.He must have married Eliza around that time.I had not known about a daughter as the first child.I only know about James Alexander, John Robert, Eliza Jane, Martha (born VA) and Mildred A. (you have Malissa).After the Pauls left Wilson Co. TN they went to Wabash Co. IL.Johns brother William and his family stayed in TN.John Robert is my gggrandfather.He married Mary Jane Cunningham and had 4-5 children - the last being my ggrandmother Sarah Paul.Mary Jane was living with an Elizabeth Thompson in the 1850 census and I can't find who her parents were.Maybe it was someone related to the William Cunningham that Willis write about since the Pauls were always associated with the Cunninghams through out time. John Robert later married Margaret Hill and had more children.I am also trying to figure out how the Pauls in Illinois are connected to the Pauls in Mason Co., KY.
The parents of John Paul are Robert Paul and Rachel Edwards - married in Orange Co., VA but living in Culpeper until they died.
