Sarah Jane Townsend b. 1766 NC ?, Aigusta Co., VA?

+5 votes
Searching for parents or siblings of Sarah Jane Townsend.  Her husband was Col Stephen Calvin Copeland.  They both lived, died and are buried in Overton Co., TN.

Some reasearchers claim her father was John Townsend, yet others claim Joseph Townsend, James Townsend or James Joseph Townsend.  Then some say John Townsend and Kesiah Tackett daughter of Lewis Tackett were her parents.  

Several relatives have joined SAR and DAR through Col. Stephen Copeland.  I have searched their application records hoping they had parents of Sarah Jane Townsend listed, but none did.

I have searched what available 1700 records with no luck.  Have been searching for 20 years and have nothing on her family.  The Townsend surname name flows down through generations as a given name.

Thank you for any leads or hints given.
