First Generation

1. Bedford DURHAM was born about 1779 in North Carolina.1,2,3 My analysis of the 1820 Census for Lincoln County, Tennessee:
Bedford Durham - between 26-45 (* Consistent with 1850 Census Lincoln County, Tennessee, shows birth as 1779 - Bedford is 71 years old)
3 males between 0-10 years of age
1 male between 10-16
2 females between 0-10 years of age
1 female (wife?) between ages 26-45 (1775-1794)
I did not find Bedford Durham in the 1830 Census for Lincoln County, Tennessee. I did locate several of his neighbors from the 1820 and 1840 Census, but Bedford was not listed with them (i.e. David Hawkins, Gray Bryant etc.) He may have been missed in the 1830 Census.???
