Looks like the names in by DB must have originated from you. I show the same
three children for this Hugh and Elizabeth Neisler but I did not have the
complete birth dates for Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Hugh.
Is it true that Hugh's father, John Neisler, was the son of John Nicholas
Neisler and Frances Walter. My records (from World Family Tree CD's)
indicate that Hugh's father, John, was born in Cabarrus County on October
20, 1768. I do not have a date of death for this John. You note that Hugh
was in Tenn. in 1840 and 1860. If the census for these two years show that
he lived in the same township, one would expect him to be in the same
location in 1850. Since he was not, I have a thought for you--
Do you know the year of his father's death? John, if alive would have been
82 in 1850. What are the chances that Hugh may have returned to North
Carolina to care for his father (or maybe even his mother) in their later
years or perhaps may even have came back to settle the estate. Hugh may have
been in NC during the census of 1850 and returned to TN by 1860. I have
found cases where family members, I know, were counted and listed in homes
that they were visiting or staying in and were not children of the
head-of-house listed. In at list one case, I know that my GG- Grandfather
was counted twice (once while staying with an Uncle, the other with his
This may be a shot in the dark, but if it has merit please let me know.
Maybe we can find some addtional info on John Neisler and Catherine Coleman
that will help solve your mystery. Have you checked the 1850 Cabarrus County
Census? If not let me know, I will dig through it. Also, note that if he
came back, don't expect to find him as head of the house in the census but
rather (if listed at all) starying in the home of someone else (maybe not
even his parents).
I am really taking wild stabs here- but who knows.
