      Elizabeth 76, b. NC.
      (John and Elizabeth Leach Boyd were living with their son Robert W.-
      MCM)

      I have found no Census in Stewart Co., TN listing a William Cross
      afterward.

      He would have been born probably abt 1800. Nancy Boyd was born 19 Jan
      1801.
      They were married 17 Jan 1827. The under five male could have been
      John Bond/Boyd Cross.
      The under five female could have been Kesiah Cross. If this is the
      father of John Bond Cross, he may have been married before Nancy Boyd,
      and most probably again after Nancy's death.

      1854)
      Transcribed 2003 by Jim Long:
      323 John A. Lisenby, Robert W. Boyd, Hyram T. Bogard, administrator's
      bond for William Cross; 6 Feb 1853

      1870 Cumberland City, Stewart Co, TN
      Census, Roll 1564, Book 1, pg 185A:
      Fam 15-16:
      Cross, John, 34, m, w, digging Iron Ore, b. TN;
      Louisa (?), 17, f, w, keeping house, b. TN; (must have
      been Lucy)
      Emily, 60, f, w, b. NC;
      Robert 3, m, w, b. TN;
      Mary, 3/12, f, w, b. TN;
      McBride, Delila, 50, f, w, b. TN. (Lucy's mother)
      (Is this Emily William Cross, Jr's 2nd wife. She was born in NC, as
      was Nancy Boyd. Nancy was born 1801. This Emily would have been born
      1810. If the family lore is correct and Emily's name was Buchannan,
      she may have been from the Buchannan's living in Edward Co., IL at the
      same time and in the same neighborhood as Samuel Cross. (see notes
      below)

      (Same Census, Stewart Co., Dover P.O., page 303A)
      Fam 117-117:
      Cross, John, 78, m, w, b. NC;
      Lucinda, 50, f, w, b. IL.
      Is this John one of Samuel Cross, Jr's children? The age would be
      correct. And, he would possibly have met her in Edwards Co., IL.
