    • Taken up by Joseph Cason, one black mare, 3 years old past, 13 hand high, both hind feet white, large blaze in her face, no brands perceivable, appraised at 8 dollars, June 12th

      The minutes of the Quarterly court hold tax lists for 1803-1807. Joseph Cason does not appear in any of these. So, we can assume that he arrived sometime after the tax roll for 1807 was created and before when he took up the lost mare in June 1810.

  • Notes 
    • n4, mg2,

      Came to Tennessee in 1808. Settled in Wilson Co., TN.

      Married in Georgia, came to Falling Creek, TN after marriage. (This is somewhat suspect to me. I am not certain that he actually married in Georgia. There's no reason for this to have happened, as far as I can tell.)

      Had 7 sons & 5 daughters by Sally Miller.

      Could have been named Joseph.

      Died of Cholera.

      There is some confusion about Joseph and Thomas CASON and their spouses.

      Could have been born about 1776 in NC or SC.
