1806 Jemima is born to Solomon and Katherine (Ridenhouse) Wilhoit in Green County, Tennessee[citation needed]

1824 Jemima marries Gabriel Meyers in Greene County, Tennessee on 18 May. [1] There is some confusion about the date of their marriage because there is a record of their license being issued on 26 Apr.[2]

Research Notes

The profile that was merged with this had a date of death of 1826; however, there is no source to prove that, and it would mean that she died before her daughter, Nancy Ann, was born. I have had very little success finding records for either Jemima or her husband, Gabriel. -- Fiscus-32 16:50, 8 June 2016 (EDT)
