I found Austin Washington's marriage record, Green Co. Tenn 1830, what get's me is the fact he's only 16 at the time and his family {Parent's} are not mentioned. James Borden/Burden and family are living in Clinton Co, Liberty Twp, 1830, along with Edward,Jacob,William, his brother's, according to Federal Censes Record's of Liberty Twp, Clinton Co. Oh. Same thing 1820. I've seen Cherokee mentioned in this family also, make's one wonder huh.

Can anyone on Geni who connect's here, prove this relationship.? According to info I've found through a lot of research, Austin was born SC, and father was a James Burden, but this James is the son of, Pricilla Timber's and a Thomas Borden/Burden from early VA/NC. Please except my sincere apology for questioning this data that has been posted. .
