Did you ever find the names of Jesse Trammell's parents. I have my tree posted on Trammell Master, but there is a lot of uncertainty who Jesse's parents were. I've posted alot of stuff and feel that he came from one of the trammells found in Buncombe County NC around 1820. William T., Benjamin, Isaac and others are listed in the census data around several counties in that area, but there is nothing to tie Jesse to any of them. I think Jesse's brothers and sisters are Andrew Jackson, Tyre Boone, Mary A. who married Wade Hampton Nations. Jesse was married to Margaret Marie Nations who I'm guessing was Wade's sister since they were married in the same locations around the same time periods. It appears that a bunch of these Trammells and Nations moved from NC/SC area out to LA in about 1850. There was also a Bethia Nations age 50 and Rebecca 18, who moved into Union Perish, La around the same period. Could have been Wade and Margarets mother and sister. See the 1850 census in Union, LA.
