THOMAS AUSTIN was born before 1755 in Virginia and died before July 16, 1804 in Amherst Co., Virginia. He married REBECCA TURNER (Jopling) December 3, 1798 in Amherst Co., Virginia, daughter of JAMES and REBECCA TURNER. She was born 1779 in Virginia and died about March 1852 in Nelson Co., Virginia.
Notes for Thomas Austin:
Thomas Austin is believed to have been born before 1755, although his ancestry is unknown. He was likely married at least once prior to his marriage on December 3, 1798 to spinster Rebecca Turner. They were married in Amherst County, Virginia, with the consent of her father James Turner, and with James Turner Jr. as Surety. Rebecca was born circa 1779 in Virginia. Thomas and Rebecca resided in Amherst Parish at the time the 1800 Tax List was made. On July 16, 1804 a Bond was recorded in the Amherst Co. Court in which Rebecca Austin, John Turner and James Turner signed to make an Inventory of the Estate of Thomas Austin, Decreased. On March 1, 1805, the Inventory was returned by Zach Roberts, John Mosby and William H. Mosby, showing a value of L80-7. Rebecca remarried on July 12, 1810 in Nelson Co., Virginia to John Jopling. She was living in Nelson County, Virginia at the time of the 1850 census, a widow aged 71. She wrote her will in February 1852 and it was presented in the Nelson County Court on March 23, 1852. Thomas' only known children are those named in Rebecca's will, and all are born in Virginia.

Notes for Jesse Austin:
Article from the CALDWELL COUNTY HERITAGE BOOK.
Jesse Austin was born in 1803 in Amherst County, Virginia and married Sally Jopling, sister of Ben Jopling. The Austin’s, who were of English descent, came to Caldwell County from Mecklenburg County while others of the same clan went to Texas to live, and according to this family that the city of Austin, Texas was named.
Nelson County Marriages -Jesse & Sally Jopling 2 Nov 1822; b-Benjamin Jopling Minister Edward L. Warren 7 Nov 1822.
AUSTINS OF AMERICA FEBRUARY 1986
Jesse Austin was born circa 1803 in Virginia, probably in Amherst County. He was married on 2 November 1822 to Sally Jopling in Nelson County, Virginia, with her brother Benjamin Jopling, surety. Sally was born in Virginia; her father Ralph Jopling left her $1 in his will. Jesse appears in the 1830 and 1840 Census for Burke County, North Carolina, and the land there on which Jesse and Sally resided once belonged to a Ralph Jopling. In 1841 Caldwell County was formed out of Burke and Wilkes Counties in North Carolina. Rebecca Turner Austin Jopling's Will was probated there as well as in Nelson County, leaving little doubt as to this Jesse's parents. Jesse was a Wagoner working for James Harper who owned a store near where Lenoir, North Carolina, is today. His work can be imagined from page 95 of Nancy Alexander's book HERE WILL I DWELL, in the chapter covering 'The Story of Caldwell County':
"James Harper later became the sole owner of the Burke store. His trade was done mostly through bartering. People brought in produce, dried herbs, brandy, furs, and apples, for which he traded articles in his store. These bartered products were then sent in great wagons to Columbia, Charleston, and other such places to be sold or traded for such commodities as salt and other goods. Wagoner’s who made the long trips, which often required as long as a month's time, camping by the wayside, were Cannon Lowdermilk, Jesse Austin, James Adams, Perry Tomplin, Reddick Freeman, Hiram Clarke, David Hennessee, and Warren Allen.
"Among the records is one which shows produce sent to Charleston for sale by William C. Lowdermilk, 2 December 1837; bear skins $34; snake root; 1220 pounds of butter at 12.5 cents, $205; 25 bushels of apples $22; 40 pairs of shoes $60; 25 horse collars; 18 bushels of corn $5.40; cash to purchase cotton $100.00; cash to purchase grocers $200.00; cash for expenses $5.00.
Jesse's first wife Sally died, and by the 1850 census one finds their young daughter Susan living with her grandmother Rebecca Turner Austin Jopling in Nelson County. Jesse's farm sold 15 November 1849 by the Sheriff in Caldwell County to Jesse's son Thomas (Deed Book 2, pp. 131-134), who sold it in that same year to Benjamin Jopling.
From his mother's Will we know that Jesse married a second time. It is likely that it was the same Jesse Austin who married circa 1850 in Statesville, Iredell County, North Carolina, to Lucinda Vaughn, who was born circa 1825 in Virginia and died in 1900. "Austin” in Iredell County was sometimes spelled "Ostun". In 1852 Jesse inherited his mother's house and some of her land in Nelson County, plus two slaves; a boy Cleaton and a girl Betsy. Jesse and Lucinda had a son Jesse Lafayette Austin born circa 1853, and they are found in the 1860 Iredell County census. Frances Townsend Andrews states the Sarah Austin Townsend (Jesse's sister) wrote around 1857 to her son Jesse Austin Townsend in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri:
"We had a letter from Bur(?) Monday not long since and he said your Uncle Jesse had spent all his money and had sold Betsy, but William wouldn't let the man take her, then gave him a bill of sale on Cleaton. He wrote to me to send him a copy of Mother's Will by the 2nd Monday in October and said if I did not, they would both be gone. I don't reckon it will do any good. There weren't any trustees left to the Will."
"See Last Will and Testament of Rebecca Turner Austin Jopling" for a copy of her will.

The parents of Jesse may have been Thomas Austin, Born before 1755, married 12-3-1798 in Amherst County, Virginia to Rebecca Turner, daughter of James Turner.

In later life, Thomas and Jane lived in the Patterson community in a log house, later weather-boarded, at the junction of Roby Martin and Coy Miller roads of 1983. Of twelve children, eight were living in 1900. Son Julius once stated that he and a brother took care of the farming while their father was in the Confederate Army. At the time of his death 2-7-1909, the LENOIR NEWS stated he was in his 85th year, a member of the Presbyterian Church, having joined under the preaching of Rev. Jesse Rankin.

|Notes for Mary Jane Austin:|
|Medical Information: Mental Illness|
The story goes this way.
Broughton Hospital burned many a year ago and most of the records were
destroyed. So they thought Mary
Jane had died, it was several years later when they found out she was alive.
