I am seeking any information on a Enoch and Rachael Melson. From an 1850 Alabama Census it lists both of them being bornin North Carolina. Below is the information I have listed for both of them:
B: 1797 in NC; D: 1860 in Lawrence Cty, AL
Rachael (no maiden name listed) B: 1802 in NC; D: 1859 in AL
I think they were married sometime around 1823 as my (3) Great Grandfather William Melson was born in 1823 in AL.
I am not sure if they were married in AL or NC, but they were both born in NC and have children listed on the 1850 census as being born in AL and TN.
I need help trying to figure out who Rachael came from since her maiden name is not listed and I can't find any records of her aside from this 1850 AL Census. I do know that Enoch also married a Jane C. Chinault who has also been listed at Jane C. Chenault or Jane C. Aldridge. My side comes from the union of Enoch and Rachael whom he married before he married Jane.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
