    MARRIAGE:::::::::::::::::: Christopher Carey + Falby Edmonds (the widow of John Edmonds) 14 March 1847 Jefferson Co,TN.

    She was incorrectly indexed in 1850 census as Phoebe. There's definitely an "L" in her name on the 1850 sheet.

    1850: indexed as CARY Jefferson, Tennessee living in the household of Jonathan ELLISON
    Jonathan 61 NC
    Rachel 66 SC
    (see the BAKER family above them--Josephine (who marries Theodrick Edmonds and Margaret who is living with them in the 1860 who possibly marries in Jefferson Co.)

    THEN COMES ............................

    R Carey 1 female TN
    --- J Carey 15 female TN (allegedly this is Rhoda Jane but where is she on the 1850?) To have been born in 1845 Christopher would have been 17) Who is the mother? Is she Christopher's YOUNGER SISTER instead of his daughter? Some suggest she might be Jane Edmonds, Falby's daughter by her first marriage, except she NEVER once in three censuses says her mother was born in NC. And everyone in town knows Falby Ellison was born in NC. == How are the next two people related to Phalby? WHERE IS RHODA JANE ON THE 1850? Where are M and HD? Together in a totally different family?)

    I've got a gg-grandmother, Marey Carey b 4 April 1859 in Jefferson County Tennessee. She married James H. Ferguson in TN, and is the daughter of Christopher Carey. Marey and James had a son Elisha aka Ike.

    I have in my possession a photograph labeled "Uncle Jim and Aunt Catey Carey, about 1850." They are somewhere between 40 and 60 years old, I guess, and look very grim and scottish. Aunt Catey is wearing a plaid shawl. Uncle Jim has a loooooong white beard. Who are these people??
