Andrew Barton McPHERSON and Parthenia HALE married abt 1808 in Roane
County, Tennessee. Barton was the son of Daniel McPHERSON and Susannah
KINCHELOE. Pathenia's father was Hezekiah HALE; her mother's name is
unknown to me at this time. The cemetery, also known as the Ewing

Caveat:In this album, I have listed relationships for some individuals. In doing that, I have followed traditional children's lists for Barton & Parthenea. Researchers need to be aware, however, that there is a problem with listing the following as children of theirs simply because Parthenea's age at their birth would have been forty or over: Thomas Hawes, b 1831; Barton, b 1833; Margaret, b 1835; and Nancy, b 1839. I have not yet independently documented all of the couple's children's births. I believe some of the assumptions about parentage have been based on a child's presence in the McPHERSON household for censuses which did not ask about relationships. In the 1850 census, for example, John (age 22), Thomas Hawes (age 19) and Margaret (age 15) are all listed in the over-60-couple's household; because that census did not ask about household relationships, we cannot assume that the minors are children of the head of household.
