On This Day in 1860

149 Years Ago Today
June 16, 1860 – August 9, 1921
John Henry Jessee, my great grand uncle, was one of five children born to Stanford Lea and Sarah (Fuller) Jessee. He was born in Reeds Valley, Russell County, VA and died in Maynardsville, Union County, TN. It is suspect that he and his wife are buried in a family cemetery in Spring City. On June 12, 1884 he married Louvisa Powers and they had nine children. See post on June 12th.
