Grief Rideout moved from North Carolina to Tennessee in 1840 and lived in Fayette County, TN until sometime after 1865. Not sure when he died, Married Martha Denton on Dec. 29, 1831 in Franklin Cty, NC. Grief Rideout was born 1807 possibly in Franklin Cty, N. C. Looks like there was a Grief Rideout living in Shelby Cty, TN in 1800. Not sure if he is my Grief's father or possible uncle.
Also found that there were two other Rideouts listed on the 1800 census in Shelby Cty TN, Richard and William Rideout. Any information would be appreciated.
