      !CITED in "The Barton Book revised edition" compiled by Robert Dacus Nally for The Barton Historical Society, Genealogy Pub. Service, 1994 (BART287) and Supplement of November 1999: "Benjamin bought land in Franklin County, Georgia, near Lucy's parents, the Welborns, who had settled on Fishing Creek. In 1792, Benjamin sold Fishing Creek land and bought land on Big Shoal Creek. In 1796, he sold land on which he lived on Broad River, and in 1798 bought land on Gum Log Creek from Lucy's parents. Again he sold land on Broad River in 1803. In 1807 Benjamin and (second) wife Rachel sold land on the North Fork of Gum Log Creek. In 1808 they sold additional land that had been conveyed to Benjamin by William Welborn. After 1808 Benjamin's name is not found on the Franklin County tax list.

      Benjamin and his family moved to Bedford County, Tennessee, which was formed 1807/1808 from Rutherford County, Tennessee. He and a former Franklin County neighbor (Thomas Jenkins Sr.) are both listed on the 1812 Bedford County tax list."
