PINCHUM, John & Linsey 1832 Smith Cty TN

PAR #: 11483210
Location: Smith County, TN Year: 1832

Abstract: Smith County residents support residency for free people of color John and Linsey Pinchum, formerly slaves owned by Ellery Risen and Dr. J. M. Luckey. The Pinchums had purchased their freedom and do not wish to leave their slave children behind in Tennessee as they would be forced to do to comply with the 1831 law requiring free people of color to leave the state.

In 1840 they seem to be in Davidson County:

Name: John, Pinchum
Township: Not Stated
County: Davidson
State: Tennessee
Roll: 520
Page: 295

Linsey is listed as widowed in 1860:

PINCHUM LINSEY 70 F B VA TN DAVIDSON 6-WD NASHVILLE 1860

seems to be on same page with her son perhaps:

PINCHUM THOMAS 56 M B VA TN DAVIDSON 6-WD NASHVILLE 1860
