Manerva Geron was oldest child of Solomon Geron b. 2 Mar 1790 Roane Co. TN d. 2 Sep 1826 Jackson MS and Charity Hinds b. 1798 TN d. Ukn (they had 7 children Manerva, Simeon, Marena Conado, Charles Clayborn, William Wilborn, John W., and Alfred)
Solomon Geron was son of Solomon Geron b. 28 Dec 1761 Randolph Co. NC d. 3 Jun 1841 Kingston, Roane Co. TN and Eleanor/Eleander Owens/Owings b. ca 1763 Baltimore MD d. 5 Feb 1852 Kingston, Roane Co. TN m. 25 Dec 1785 Burke Co. NC (pension app. says 1784 by Wm Sumpter in Burk Co NC given by Edward Owings)
Family tree takes the Gerons and Owens/Owings further back.
Solloman Geron Gearran (Geron) is listed 1840 Census Roane Co. TN and as a pensioner of the Rev. War. He is also on a list of pensioners of the Rev War in Roane Co. and as age 73 in 1832 with service in NC.
In reading thru his Rev.War pension and bounty land application and the census surname is spelled variously Geron, Geren, Gearran among others. I am still reading his Rev. War file it's way too long for me to download and mail to Dr. Hewlett.
