  • Notes 
    • Some accounts say he was born in Greene Co., TN, others in Knox Co.TN.

      PARENTS: could have been from TN or AL

      Census says he was from TN, Sarah Council's death certificate says he was from Alabama.

      It appears that Uriah died fairly early, leaving a wife with children. They then moved with his parents on to Arkansas. Based on the fact that Uriah's father is in Knox Co. in 1811, I might expect to find his birth there, or in Roane County where his parents were married.

      DEED: Uriah Allison Council (U.A. Council) bought land in Roane Co.,Tennessee. Deed is in Book G, p. 47.
