      COUNTY OFFICERS . . .

      SHERIFFS (and DEPUTIES) . . .

      1827-1829 John Lea (Orville Paine)

      (3) A household headed by John H. LEA is listed in the 1830 census of Carter County, TN.

      Listed in John H.'s household are 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 2 free white females under 5 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Since only one free white male is listed in John H.'s household, he must be the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age. He was born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that John H.'s wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in John H.'s household, those children would have consisted of two daughters [which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census).

      (4) A household headed by John LEE is listed in the 1850 census of Bradley County, TN.

      John is listed in the 1850 census as a farmer who was then 45 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1805. According to the 1850 census, he was born in TN.

      Listed with John is his wife, Elizabeth, who was then 43 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1847. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN.

      Also listed with John is his daughter, Emeline, who was then 22 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1828. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN.

      Also listed with John is his daughter, Lucinda J., who was then 20 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1830. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN.

      Also listed with John is his daughter, Sarah, who was then 18 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1832. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN. [Note by compiler: see the other Sarah listed below. It seems unusual for John to have had two daughters with the same name who were living at the same time.]

      Also listed with John is his son, David, a farmer who was then 16 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1834. According to the 1850 census, he was born in TN.

      Also listed with John is his daughter, Nancy, who was then 13 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1837. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN.

      Also listed with John is his daughter, Sarah, who was then 11 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1839. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN. [Note by compiler: see the other Sarah listed above. It seems unlikely that John would have had two daughters with the same name who were living at the same time. The compiler believes that the second Sarah (the one who was then 11 years of age) may really have been a son named Samuel. Samuel is listed in John's household in 1860, and would have been about 11 years of age in 1850.]

      Also listed with John is his son, John G., who was then 8 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1842. According to the 1850 census, he was born in TN.
