At the the link shown above, I found the following item about my paternal great grandmother's family and I hope someone might know what TUBB/TUBBS Jane TIGERT married. Jane was born about 1834 in Madison Co, TN. Her mother died there in 1835 and by 1840 or so, most of the family had moved to n.e. MS, Tippah County. Jane lived with her sister Mary Catherine (TIGERT) BURROWS in MS at least through the 1860 census when they were in Pontotoc Co, MS. The BURROWS moved to Kaufman Co, Texas and I don't know for sure if Jane went with them or not. If so, she might have married in TX.

"TIGRET FAMILY (082036) Samuel Tigret (McTigert) moved to U.S. from North Ireland in 1770/ to Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, and to Tenn. after the Revolution/ left a sister, Peggie, in Ireland/ two brothers also moved, one named John James Tigret/ Samuel married a sister to Sen. John Bell of Tennessee/ children were Chesterfield Tigret, Thomas Bell Tigret, Rev. John Baker Tigret, Sarah Robinson, Susan Neely, Mary Burrows, Parmelia Wallace, Annie McCord, and Jane Tubbs."

Ripley, MS [Tippah County Death Notices])

Does anything here ring a bell with anyone? Thanks for any help! Happy to share information.
