The John H. Innis Family

Innis Family Tree

Since I was working on Thomas H., I just went ahead and did his parents and filled out the basic sibling list. Based on the 1840,1 1850, 1860, and 1870 census records, the parents and sibling of Thomas H. are:

John Innis, born c.1800-1805, Virginia,
Nancy [Unknown] born c.1800-1805, Virginia – first wife,
Nancy [Unknown] born c. 1822, Kentucky – possible second wife,
John R., c.1824, Tennessee,
James E., c.1826, Tennessee,
Wiley M., c.1833, Tennessee,
Mary B., c. 1835, Tennessee,
Nancy Ann, c. 1841, Tennessee,
Thomas H., Jan 1843, Kentucky,
Emily M., c.1845, Tennessee

I am reasonably convinced in reviewing the records that Thomas H. was most probably born in Roane County like his siblings, but he grew up in Kentucky. It may have been a simple case of identifying himself with where he was from rather than where he was born.
