      Jessie J. Brandon Griffith, the lady who did the 1870 Jackson County census book in 1989 read that name as:

      David WARNICK 27 PA
      Manerva 22 GA
      Wm. WILSON 66 SC
      Josephine CHAMLER 10 AL but she has a question mark at the surname for Josephine meaning she could not read it clearly.

      Now, perhaps if you knew who Manerva married you would know how to pronounce David's name and also if Josephine is a grand daughter of William Wilson which would also give you another lead.

      Not trying to butt in, just thought this might help.

      My great grandfather Greenberry Hambrick had a son Joseph Hambrick born ca 1821 Lincoln County, TN; married 1st on 22 Oct. 1840 Winchester, Franklin County, TN to Bethena Wilson; daughter of Elizabeth Wilson; born ca 1825; died Aug. 1850 Princeton, Jackson County, AL. probably buried at Hambrick Sinks Cemetery on Dry Creek Road.
      CHILDREN: Ruth, (1841) Alfred(1843) , John(1845, Bethena (1849), J.W. (1850) HAMBRICK.

      Joseph Hambrick married 2nd to Margaret Blackburn 16 Feb. 1852 Madison County, AL

      1850 Jackson County, AL
      Joseph Hambrick 32 TN
      Ruth 9 AL
      Alfred 7 AL
      John 4 AL
      Bethena 1 AL
      Elizabeth WILSON 55 TN

      > David Wenrick ? 27 w/m Carpenter b. PA (estimate birth date as ca 1843)
      > Manerva " " 22 w/f Keeping house b GA (estimate birth date as ca 1848)
      > William Wilson 68 w/m b. SC (estimate " " 1802)
      > Josephine Chunscer? 10 w/f b.AL (estimate " " 1860)

      I certainly read this the same way you do. Note that the census taker spelled Wilson with 2 L's, whether this was right or not we don't know. Josephine's name also looks like it could possibly be Chumcer.

      In general, the census takers didn't do the greatest job with spelling.

      Sometimes when I can't locate someone in another census, it works to search by first name and birthplace and approximate age and then look in the results for a last name that looks like it could be close. (I have noted that not everyone aged "exactly" 10 years between each census - and also that occasionally their birthplace changes! :-) )

        Can anyone help me with this record? The writing was not very clear in the Jackson County Road Book, but I think this is what it says:

        "Ordered by the Court that James Morgan et al be and they are hereby allowed the privilege to carry on a Turnpike Alley in the town of Larkinsville in said county for the term of six months from this date he they having paid the state and county tax imposed by law."

        The word Turnpike is not very clear, but Alley is clear.

        Does anyone have any information about the operation of private turnpikes in Jackson County? Or the location of the Larkinsville turnpike?

        THank you,
