Searching for info on the family of John Muckleroy found in 1820 Census Smith Co., TN. I have a Robert Muckleroy b. abt. 1824 in TN and have not been able to connect him to any Muckleroy families. Robert married in 1845 Jefferson Co., IL to Frances E. Brown, daughter of Joseph D.Z. Brown and Sally Byers, daughter of William and Nancy (Yearwood) Byers who moved from Rutherford Co., TN to Jefferson Co., IL abt. 1829. Robert and Frances had three boys, John, George, and Robert before Frances d. 1852 and Robert d. 1853. Children split up and farmed out not even sure of their last name. Since John was the first born child thought perhaps he was named after a father or grandfather. The names of John, George, and Robert are not common among the other known ancestors. This has been a brick wall for well over a decade. Any thoughts appreciated.
