Notes for JONATHAN T. WELLBORN:
"Johnson Welborn was born in GA January 22, 1813. I have held in my hand the 1813 tax digest for Morgan Co., GA where his father Jonathan Welborn paid his taxes for that year which were paid in 1814. His two pleasure carriages still sat in his yard here in GA . I have walked over the property that he lived on in that year in GA and I have held in my hand the very newspaper that he put an ad in here in Milledgeville advertising for his son Cordial Thomas Welborn who "has run away from me-I therefore forewarn all persons from boarding or trading with him in any manner whatever. " Signed Jonathan Welborn and in the June 9, 1813 paper. I would be hard put to believe that if he is here in the 1813 + tax digest that his son Johnson was born in TN. I would be sure ole' Becky wouldn't leave the state without her pleasure carriages for which they had to pay extra."

"I might add that Cordial Thomas Wellborn never left GA to go to TN and was an upstanding citizen and fought in the War of 1814 and became a good church member/lay preacher and was aided when he ran away by David Welborn my gggg grandfather. David and Cordial (Cor' Day) are two of the almost nonexistent Wellborn names in early church records in GA as people recorded as being faithful members. David was Cordial's Uncle. Both endured till the end as faithful members."

Notes for JOHNSON WELLBORN:
"There is some debate on where Johnson was born. One source says Bedford County, TX. Carolyn Wellborn Haskins says "Johnson Welborn was born in GA January 22, 1813. I have held in my hand the 1813 tax digest for Morgan Co., GA where his father Jonathan Welborn paid his taxes for that year which were paid in 1814. His two pleasure carriages still sat in his yard here in GA . I have walked over the property that he lived on in that year in GA and I have held in my hand the very newspaper that he put an ad in here in Milledgeville advertising for his son Cordial Thomas Welborn who "has run away from me-I therefore forewarn all persons from boarding or trading with him in any manner whatever. " Signed Jonathan Welborn and in the June 9, 1813 paper. I would be hard put to believe that if he is here in the 1813 + tax digest that his son Johnson was born in TN. I would be sure ole' Becky wouldn't leave the state without her pleasure carriages for which they had to pay extra."

"Jonathan Welborn had a son named Johnson Welborn b. January 22, 1813 in Morgan Co., GA and died in Alvarado, TX on Oct 7, 1868. He married in 1838 in Marshall Co., TN to Elatia Pauline Knight the daughter of Capt James Knight and Jane Doak. He moved to Texas in 1867 just before he died. He was by Jonathan's second wife Rebecca Williams and was a half brother to Cordial Thomas Wellborn and Winnifred Welborn Fogg and your Kinchen Alford Welborn."
