The 1812 tax list for Warren County, Tennesse list a Joseph G. England on page 3. My 4th great-grandfather was Joseph G. England who moved from Tennesse to Washington County, Missouri in the mid 1820's. I suspect that this may be the same J. G. England as my 4th great. I am seeking information from any England descendants who may know who this Joseph G. England married and where they were married at. Warren County has no available data on the net on marriages of the county to research. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Richard Starks

He was also supposed to have some Cherokee blood from his mother's side (Ida Bell Moulder) daughter of Mariah Burleson and Samual Houston Moulder. It has been said that the Indian blood came from Mariah. Her father was Aaron Burleson and her mother was Lucinda Forrest. Ida and A. Werr were first cousins. I would appreciate any help I can get.
