I am seeking information on land grants in Warren county assigned to George Roden. On 28 Oct 1815, George was assigned Land Grant #7876 (100 ac. on W. side Rocky River.) On 3 Dec 1817, he was assigned Land Grant 15341 (40 ac. on Rocky River.) On 1 Sep 1823, George sold all of the second grant and some other property to James Wood. George was living in Blount Co, AL, at this time. I believe George is my gggg-grandfather. The property sold in 1823 was adjacent to William Roden's 106 1/4 ac. preference right. I would like any information on these and other Rodens who were living in Warren county at that time and information or a reference source for determining more precisely where these properties were located.

[ Note: Tennessee land grant records are available at the "Tennessee State Library and Archives" in Nashville. Between 1807 to 1824, this area (Rocky River) was in Tennessee's 3rd Surveyor's District. Some pertinent entry and survey records for this District are extant and are also available at TSLA. Ed.]

My 2nd great-grandparents, Samuel Right Brookshire and Rachel Hill Nicholas were reportedly married in Rutherford Co, TN 1821. Later they were in Warren Co., until 1850 when they were in Coffee Co. This may have been due to boundary changes rather than a move. After 1850 the family moved to MO. I know nothing about Rachel Hill Nicholas except that she was born 1805 in GA. I know there was a Nicholas family in Warren County, but I have not been able to connect Rachel to them.

There seems to be confusion here and little documentation. What proof of his death and of his children exists? How was he related to other early Northcuts in Warren County. Various accounts of this family are contradictory. Need help in order to fit him into the larger Northcut family of Virginia.
