Mary Rideout/Williamson Co.,Tenn./d.1848

Hi...I'm Bill Scales, retired Methodist Clergyman...
Looking for information on Mary Rideout
Who married Robert William Scales near Triune
Williamson County, Tennessee around 1835.
She may have been related to Geo Washington.
Relocated to Lowndes Co., Mississippi between 1844 and 1846, near the community of Prairie Hill.
Robert W. Scales and Mary Rideout's children:
Elsworth Poindexter Scales (1836-1909)(my grandfather who died before I was born)
Joseph Henry (1838-1923)
John Howard Scales ( 1844-1906)
Benjamin Franklin Scales (1840-1863)
Nathaniel Fields Scales ( 1845-?)
Mary Ann (1847-1910)
Possible that Mary Rideout died giving birth to Mary Ann.
Robert William Scales remarried following her death, and had other offsprings.
Robert W. Scales immigrated to Tenn. from Rockingham Co., North Carolina between 1810 - 1820. His father wasJoseph Henry Scales.

Mary Rideout was my g.grandmother, and I would love information if you have any or know where I could get it. I am writing a family history, and need your help on Mary Rideout. Thanks in advance...Bill Scales
