ADDITIONAL NOTES

It is unknown who Jesse’s parents were. Some people think it was William Criddelle from Ga. Others think he was James Criddle B: 1794 in SC D: 1850 in AL. If that is true then Jesse was born later than 1802.

According to Blm land patent doc 4792 Jesse bought land June 1, 1826 in Greene Co.

FROM CENSUS RECORDS AND THE BIRTH PLACES OF THEIR CHILDREN IT LOOKS LIKE THEY MOVED FROM GA. TO ALA. THEN TO MS.

JESSE WAS BORN IN GEORGIA (maybe Greene County). WE ARE UNSURE WHEN HE DIED. BUT BECAUSE OF CENSUS RECORDS WE FEEL THAT IT WAS AFTER 1850 AND BEFORE 1860. HE APPEARED ON THE 1850 CENSUS, CHICKASAW CO, MS. WITH SARAH, BUT HE WAS NOT ON THE 1860 CENSUS, CHICKASAW CO, MS. HOWEVER: SARAH WAS LISTED IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF HER SON JAMES. THEREFORE, WE ASSUME HE DIED SOMETIME AFTER THE 1850 CENSUS AND THE 1860 CENSUS.
