Surnames: WELLS, HESTER, WASHINGTON
My ggrandfather GEO. W. WASHINGTON married NANCY WELLS in Rhone Co. Tn. in May 1864. Her father and mother were JAMES C. AND ELIZA or LOUISA HESTER WELLS. In the 1850 Rhone Co. Census there is WILLIAM HESTER age 45, and another WILLIAM HESTER, age 69, and then my JAMES WELLS & ELIZA J.age 22. all of these in house #1594,1595,1596. I am trying to find out if these HESTERS could be the parents and grandparents of my ELIZA HESTER WELLS?? In wihch case would be 2 more generations for me.
Would appreciate any help with this.
