  • Notes 
    • In the Knox County tax lists, Jesse pays no poll. This usually means that he is too old to have to pay a poll. Often 60 years old. Need to validate current tax law for Tennessee at that point.

      In the Land Entry Book for Wilkes County, NC, 1778-1781, there are two grants listed that mention Jesse Council.
      No. 539.  8 Dec 1779.  James Forbus. e. 300 Ac N side Yadkin River adjoining Frd Hogs improvement.  (James Forbus marked out; Jesse Council written in)
      No. 699. 2 Jan 1779.  William Lenoir e. 320 ac n waters New River near Lewis' old cabbin, including improvement whereon Baker King formerly lived. (Wm Lenoir marked out; Jesse Council written in)
      Where one name is crossed out and another written in, it means that the land entry was transferred before the grant was actually made. None of these mean that Jesse was necessarily in Wilkes in 1779.

      It appears that Jesse Council was in Surry County, NC by Sept 1776 when he witnessed the will of Michael Baker. He married Elizabeth and had several children. Jordan looks like the oldest son, followed by Hodges. I still believe that Isaac was one of his children, probably the youngest son. I think perhaps Matthew is the son immediately before Isaac. There are daughters, at least Charlotte, and others not yet named.

      It looks like he moved to Tennessee immediately before statehood. in late 1795. Hodges came in 1801. Jordan stayed in North Carolina.

      Jesse wrote a will in 1828 and died in 1830.
