[This is possibly untrue] From Richard Self: "He was in Bledsoe Co., TN from about 1805 (he sold his land in the Pendleton District, SC that year & was on the 1800 Census there) to about 1817, when he moved to Alabama. I believe that the Census records of his children say that he was born in SC, but I have no documentation. No white men were in Bledsoe Co., TN at the time of his birth."
