Ancestors from one area mainly Maury/Williamson County near present day Spring Hill, TN. Prior to this the majority of these came from Orange or Mecklenburg NC. This line ended up as the Jacobs side of the family. There are a few late comers to Maury Co in the 1840s but almost all were there prior to 1820s with some as early as 1801 or earlier. Cloud McCollum was the first of the branch to settle by 1801 in what was Williamson Co. James Watson was the last in the early 1840s from South Carolina. I have also included other members of the family and shown there relationship to the direct ancestors listed and for the most part these people are found on the same page of the 1820 census of Maury Co TN.

I have in my family tree a Robert Annan (or Anman) Rankin who lived in Maury County by the late 1820's and is said to have moved to Mississippi by 1838. I don't have any information on his wife. His father was the Rev. Adam Rankin of Lexington, Kentucy (which is where Robert was born). His mother died in Columbia and is buriedn in the Greenwood(?) Cemetery. Her name was Martha McPheeters Rankin, and she died on July 27, 1836.
You believe the Robert you mentioned may have married a McKee?

Very Interesting information. I, too, am looking for ancestors from Maury County, Tn. My great grandfather lived in and around Culleoka and Spring Hill after he and Martha got married. John W. Taylor was born in 1830. I have not been able to find any information on his parents. Census indicate they were born in Tn also. John and Martha had seven boys.

Looking for Joseph Jacobs parents, he married Louisa McKee. I have the William J. Jacobs Sr.(b 1830) from Robertson County history. Hoping this was William was Joseph's son.

There's a story about someone being dis-inherited for marrying a Jew (Jacobs) could this be Louisa? We believe we are Irish:)
