Hi, about the time frame, We are not exactly shure. I know that their daughter clara was born in 1899 so they probably was born somewhere between 1850 and 1880 i would imagine. i heard something about them living in madison county sometime. thats all i know right now about clara's parents, jefferson and sallie. any help would be great.

Hi Ulrick

I cannot remember if I contacted you or not on the family of Clara. I had a computer crash and lost all of my email addresses and some [not much, than God] of my data, nothing of great importance, but some email messages.

I have Jefferson H. Messer married to Sallie Shelton, Maggie J. Clark and Caroline Teaster. The marriage of Jefferson and Sallie was in Cocke County, TN, on Sept. 10, 1891. I have quite a bit on the family of Jefferson, he is descended from "Uncle Fed" Messer of Haywood County, NC. I do not have anything on the family of Sallie.

Jefferson Harrison Messer was the son of Conrad H. "Coonrod" Messer and Sarah Mariah Cogdill. He was the grandson of Frederick and Anna Hunter Messer and the great grandson of Christian Sargent Messer of Haywood County, NC.

Sallie Shelton was the daughter of Solomon and Rachel Shelton Shelton. Both mother and father were Shelton's by birth.
