was a farmer and owned land in the Fair Garden area of Sevier  County. 
NGT Fox in his 1924 Fox history reported 9 children.  However, the
1830-1850 censuses indicate that  there were as many as 13.  Three other 
daughters (Mahalamar, Catherine and Margaret) have since been
identified.  The 1830 and 1840, censuses, also indicated an unidentified
son.  There is just room to fit one child in between Catherine and Eli.
