In regards to your query about John Melton who married his cousin Sarah Melton. Are you sure about those dates. I have some information on a John Melton, born about 1766 in Virginia, who married a woman , first name Sarah, no last name available at this time. This Sarah was born about 1768 in Virginia as well, so could easily be a cousin. They later moved to Meigs County, Tn., and two of their children were Robert and James Fowler Melton.James Fowler Melton, born 1824 in Virginia, was a small child when John and Sarah later moved to Tennessee. James Fowler Melton married Jane Carson Allen,b.1824 in Virginia. They were wed sometime around 1842 or 1843. Their first child was Uriah Cooper Melton,b.1844 in Meigs Co.,T.; Robert I.(?Isaac?) Melton,b.1846,Meigs Co.,Tn.;John Melton,b.1848,Meigs Co.;Margaret A.Melton,b.1849,Meigs Co.;Thomas Duggan Melton,b.1854 Meigs Co.;Thomas O.Melton,B.1856, Meigs Co.;Sara A.Melton,b.1857,Meigs Co.;Elinor L.Melton,b.1860,Meigs Co.;and James F.(?Franklin?) Melton,b.1863,Meigs Co.,Tn. James Fowler Melton's brother Robert had at least two children that I am aware of, William Melton,b.1843,Meigs Co.; and James Melton,b.1845,Meigs Co. James Fowler Melton was my great-great-grandfather; Thomas Duggan Melton was my great-grandfather....his son Lonnie Thomas Melton,b.1898,Meigs Co., was my grandfather, and Wendell E.Melton, b. 1923, Meigs Co. was my father . I moved about a year ago and had more research packed away, but have not had time to dig it all out. If I come across anything else that might help, I will contact you via this message board again. If you have any info regarding the line of genealogy that I stated above, please contact me, either by my listing in the message board or by my e-mail address
