Bettye, in reply to your posting concerning, Tempy Busey 1800's - N.C. to Tn., you asked who Thomas Busey, 15 yrs. old, shown living in the household of Tempy (Temperance) Busey-Smith-Moody, in the 1860 Cannon County, Tn. census records is, well he is my Great-Great-Grandfather, Thomas J. Busey, who is shown in the 1880 US Census records for Distr. 1 Cannon County, Tenn.(age 36 born in 1877), married to "Mary ?" ( age 29 born in 1851), and having five children, Dozier (age 7 born in 1873), James A. (my G-Grandfather)(age 2 born in 1877) , Francis (Frances)(age 5 born in 1875), John D.( age 6 months, born in 1879-1880) , and William Busey( age 3 born in 1876), sorry, not listed in the proper order according to their ages. Thomas J.'s father is shown as being born in North Carolina and his mother in Tenn. on the 1880 census. Apparently both of Thomas's parents have died by 1860, and he is listed in Tempy's household, although he could be living with her to help out, as she is a widow at this time and 15 year olds were often sent to live with relatives to help with labor. The 22 year old Mary Busey in Tempy's household, we have not yet figured out. The other children are hers' by her two marriages, both to Smith and then to Moody. Any more info would be greatly appreciated and I would love to share info with you that relates to the Busey Line. Elaine
