If BENJAMIN HUNT born April 30, 1805 in Washington Co., TN died in DeKalb Co., TN then how come I can not find any information on his family.

I am looking for proof that Benjamin and Margaret were in DeKalb Co.

A transcription from a microfilm of a gravestone in Smithville Cem., DeKalb Co. reads, in part, "Mary G., Daughter of Marguis(sic) & Mary Shryer," with Mary's birth and death year noted as 1853. We suspect the father ("Marquis?") might have migrated from Trigg & Christian Counties, KY. We'd very much like to correspond with anyone who knows about these folks, especially anyone who might double-check the gravestone inscription. We'd be happy to share our own discoveries. Thank you.
