James Routh 1774-1846 parents??????

+4 votes
I have connected and disconnected two sets of parents for James Routh.  He was born around 1774 and died around 1846 in Harrison County, Indiana.  He lived in Tennessee for some time and married a Rebecca Gower there. They later moved to Harrison County, Indiana.

I keep finding inaccurate and conflicting information regarding James's parents. I have seen Jacob Routh and Martha Redfern. I have seen Joseph Routh and Mary Redfern. I have seen Zacheus Routh and Hannah Hammer. I don't want to pair him up without proof. All I keep finding is family trees. I can't find a Census unless maybe the last name was spelled differently. If anyone can help me solve the mystery, it's much appreciated.
