In 1840 at the age of 8, John Thomas Kissire approached Captain Thomas Jefferson Williams, Wagon Master of a wagon train in Franklin Co., TN., leaving the following day for Arkansas.

Thomas J. told him he could not at that time take him along because it would be considered stealing a child, but told him where they would be stopping for lunch the next day, and if he was there he could come along with them.
