DeEtta,

I have a question, I have a line of Wynn's that are married to Harrison's
and they are sitting about the same time frame, I wonder if your Thomas G.
b. abt 1840 is one of the missing kids as there is a gap in kids for about 8
years. It wouldn't hurt to look at that...
Peter Wynn, born 1754 died 3/30/1808 Lunenburg County, VA. married Lettice
"Letty" Stone, born 1795 died 1806. Before he was buried in Lunenburg
County, VA, there is a deed listed in Mecklenburg Deed book. (I show nine
children so far) They had a son called:
Archer Wynn b. 10/10/1795 married Cicely Ligon Harrison,
Archer shows in Robertson County TN, Census 1850, 1860, Will of Elizabeth
Harrison was probated 9/8/1857 Robertson county, TN, Tombstone of Archer,
Cicley, William p., Benjamin T., John H., Same, Mary D., Emily F., are in
Winn Family Graveyard near Cedar Hill, TN.,

Ok here is a chart with sources:
