Thank you.  Mary Jane here is my great-grandmother.  I have never found the name of the King man she married who was my great-grandfather.  Can you help me with this?
1880 Fentress, Tennessee census where Mary Jane lived lists a John C. King aged 13 son of Robert King. Robert H in the same family is 8 yrs. old.

Jacob son of William King is 9 yrs. old.

James son of Thomas is 18.

David son of Thomas is 14.

William son of Ruth King is 18.

 

Now to eliminate the ones that are definitely not the father of William Jackson King.
Jacob son of William died in 1890 so it's not him.
James married America Wright so it's not him.
David son of Thomas married Amanda Ann Linder so not him.
William son of Ruth married Dora Owens. Not the right one either. I'll keep lookin'.
John C. son of Robert  and Nancy is 13 years old.

Robert H. son of Robert and Nancy is 8.

John son of Thomas  and Nancy E. is 9.

Henry L. King is 22 but married.
John C (yrus) married Catherine Beaty so he's not the one.
Robert H married Selena Beaty so not him.
John son of Thomas married Mary Snyder so not him.
Henry L lived until 1937. Maybe he was married and he and Mary Jane Gunter had a thing on the side?

Sorry I couldn't help.

    The information on this delayed birth certificate was given by my grandmother.  My grandfather said they called his father Dave, because there were so many King men in the area with the same name, which no one in my family ever new.  Can you help me find out Dave King's real name? My grandfather's brother was John Henry King, born 1893 and died 1964.
