Marion Co TN Census Lookup ' JOHN FARMER"

Classification: Query

I would sincerely appreciate someone looking in the 1860, 1890, 1900 and 1910 Tennessee (Marion Co) Census records for my ancestor John FARMER- Born Alabama 1852-Died March 1927 Jefferson Co., AL. I am trying to identify his parents who were both born in NC.

I found my ancestor in the 1880 Marion Co TN Census and I am completely confident that this is him as I descend from his daughter Minnie also listed within.

1880 Census - Farmer Family Household
District 13, Marion County Tennessee

John FARMER Self M Male W 28 1852 Coal Miner AL NC NC
K. C. FARMER Wife M Female W 20 1860 TN Keeping House KY KY
John T. FARMER Son S Male W 6 1874 TN AL TN
Minnie FARMER Dau S Female W 3 1877 TN AL TN

I also found JOHN FARMER in the 1870 Marion County Tennessee Census records which I will share below. This 1870 census record MAY or May NOT be my ancestor. Even though his birth year of 1852 is correct, his birth state is incorrectly listed as TN.
