Morrow Jakes Gaston Stephenson
&
Sutton Lines of Bedford & Coffee Co. TN

 My Great Great Grandmother Catherine Morrow was the daughter of James Morrow of Bedford Co. TN. In my research I came across many records detailing the events which happened after the death of James Morrow and also after the death of Margaret Morrow his wife. I'm fairly certain that Margaret Morrow was Catherine's mother but not knowing her general age I don't know if it's possible for her to have been the mother to all of James Morrows children which is why I'm going to refer to them as being James Morrow's children.

Using the information from land and court records as well as some census records this is what I've come up with.
James Morrow died in June of 1839 leaving a widow Margaret Morrow and eight children.His eight children are listed below with any additional info I have on them.

  • Samuel Morrow born prob. around 1810(using age from 1850 census)He was living in Coffee Co. TN in 1850 with his wife Catherine Sutton(prob. sister of John Sutton--Jane Morrow's husband)He was living in Dist. 24 of Bedford Co Tn in 1880 and boarding with the Family of James Gowin. There is a James Morrow living close by who is probably the son of Samuel and Catherine Morrow. This James Morrow(b. abt 1845) married Issabella M. Gowen(b. abt. 1850) in Bedford Co. TN on Sept. 2 1868. It also should be noted that J. P. Sutton was the security on this marriage record. Note that he lists Father and Mother's state of birth as North Carolina.

  • Mary Morrow born prob. around 1822(using age from 1850 census)She and her husband George Stephenson were living in Bedford Co TN in 1850. I believe she died before the 1880 census and that her George remarried. I find him in the 1880 census living close to his and Mary's children in Dist 1 of Bedford Co. TN.
    Children of George and Mary Morrow Stephenson were

    • William H. Stephenson(b. abt 1841) married Nannie "Fannie" E. Porter. They were in Bedford Co Dist 1 in 1880 with their children Mary J. (age 13) George S. (age 11) William T. (age 8) Elvira B. (age 5) James T. (age 3) and Sallie (age 9 months & noted as born in Sept.) Nancy Elliot, mother of Fannie(who married Stephen Elliot after Nannie's father) is also living with them. She is 51 yrs of age and list her birthplace as TN and her Dad & Mother's state of birth as VA and AL respectively.

    • James L. Stephenson(b. abt 1842) married Mary C. Taylor Dec 23 1865 in Bedford Co TN.and is still in Bedford Co TN in the 1880 census with Mary and their children George W.(age 12)Ella J. (age 11) Minnie(age 9) and Eldorah (age 1)

    • Sarah Jane Stephenson(b abt 1845)married A. J. Anderson March 14 1866 in Bedford Co. TN.

    • John Thomas Stephenson(b. abt 1847) married Bettie ______ John died between 1870-1880 as Bettie(age 31 in 1880 census) is shown as widowed in the 1880 Bedford Co. Tn census with two children Florence (age 11) and Tommie(age 9).

    • Samuel R. Stephenson(b. abt. 1849) married Sallie________. He and Sallie(b. abt. 1852) are listed in the 1880 Bedford Co TN Census in Dist. 1 with their children Ellen (age 5) and George(age 3).

  • Catherine Morrow(b. abt. 1830) married George Jakes. George was born about 1820 in Virginia the son of James Jakes(1788-1847) and Nancy Harger(1790- after 1850). George & Catherine had 5 children--1 son and 4 daughters that I know of...there may have been more.

    • Ann Jakes(born abt 1845) married Joseph F. Gibson.
    • Parthenia Jakes(born abt 1846-1895)married Thomas McEwen
    • Bettie Jakes born about 1854.
    • Jane Jakes (1855-1898) married Thomas McEwen(widower of Parthenia)
    • James Jakes(Apr 1857-Nov 25, 1922)Married Thelitha Ann Frizzell.



  • Margaret C. Morrow

  • Sarah Parthenia Morrow--I believe she is close to the same age as Catherine because they were both under age in 1845 court records concerning land that their father left them.

  • Elizabeth Morrow married William Gaston They are listed in the 1840 Census for Bedford Co. TN on page 2 as follows:
    William Gaston Head of Household
    1 male 30-40(William)
    2 females under 5(their two daughters)
    1 female 20-30(Elizabeth)


  • Nancy Morrow married Harrison Gaston. I believe that William and Harrison were brothers. Harrison and Nancy are listed in the 1840 Census for Bedford Co. TN as follows Harrison Gaston Head of Household
    1 male 20-30(Harrison)
    1 male under 5(their son)
    1 female 20-30(Nancy)


  • Jane Morrow (b. abt 1816)married John Sutton(b abt 1814). They live in Coffee Co TN in the 1850 Census with their children James(age 12) Margaret (age 9) Samuel(age 7) and Sarah(age 3) The area of Coffee Co. in which they lived is just across the county line and really not that far from the other family members who were in Bedford Co. District 1.
