      Notes

      BIRTHDATE: "List of children in family record of Henry (Frank?) Pleasant Austin, youngest son of Pleasant Austin, who purchased John Austin Sr.'s home" per Bess Austin Machtley. All said to have been born in Virginia. Recorded in AFAOA Tennessee Notebook A, page 282, White Co., TN. This list of children is recorded in a family Bible in the possession of Col. Jimmie L. Akin of Denver, Colorado and also a Bible in the possession of Sula Matthew Swafford of Georgia (a photocopy of this hand-written page is also kept in AFAOA Tennessee Notebook, White Co., TN).

      TAXES: 1825 White County - John Sr, John Jr, Nathaniel, David, William.

      CENSUS: 1820 TN, White Co., p 369 males 2 (less than 10) - 1 (10-16) -0 -0 -1 (26-45), females 0-1 (10-16) -1 (16-26) -1 (26-45); 1830 TN, White Co. 0-0-0-2 (males 15-20) -0 -0 -0 -1 (male 50-60), females 0-1 (5-10) -0 -0 -0 -0 -0 -1 (50-60).

      CHILDREN: John Austin and his brother James L. Austin (1st settlers of Livingston County, MO) have been attached to William, per AFAOA genealogist Liz Austin Carlin. There are several reasons for this.

      1) Livingston County History faithfully records these two brothers as being from White County, TN, and several people in their line had erroneously attached them to John Austin and Rachel Denny. But John and Rachel already have a son John (who has a family).

      2) In the period from about 1812-1830, there are four Austin brothers who appear in White County - John, Nathaniel, William and David. John and Nathaniel already have sons named John. In the 1830 White County, TN census data, David has one son of the right age. John has his own family in 1830. The 1830 census data above shows that William does have sons of the right age.

      3) From the above remarks, it's possible that David could also be their father. David is shown on tax lists in Hickory Valley, White Co. in 1812 and 1825, but is not listed in 1820 White Co. census data. There is one David Austin in Western Tennessee (the 1820 Eastern TN census was lost) in Dickson County, which could be the "White Co." David and he has sons the right age to be John and James L. Austin. The problem with the "Dickson Co." David is that in 1820 he has 10 children, 5 under 10 years old, and in 1830 White Co, David and his wife show only one son 15-20 yr.

      More research is needed to definitely determine the parents of John and James L. Austin.

      (3) A household headed by William AUSTIN is listed in the 1820 census of White County, TN.

      Listed in William's household are 2 free white males under 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white male over 45 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white female between 16 and 26 years of age; and 1 free white female between 26 and 45 years of age.

      Assuming that William is the free white male listed in the 1820 census as then being over 45 years of age, he would have been born before 1775, according to the 1820 census.

      Assuming that William's wife is the free white female listed in the 1820 census as then being between 26 and 45 years of age, she would have been born between 1775 and 1794, according to the 1820 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in William's household are children of William and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 3 sons (2 of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1820, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1804 and 1810, according to the 1820 census) and 2 daughters (1 of which daughters would have been born between 1804 and 1810, and 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1794 and 1804, according to the 1820 census).
