Does anyone know of any information about a planter named John Wayles Eppes who resided in Carroll Parish, Louisiana beginning from the 1850s? I'm trying to learn something about the names of his slaves. I have a theory that he may be the father of my great-great grandfather[Jefferson Marsh Jr.]'s half-siblings with Minvervia Dixon[ggg grandmother]."

"I haven't found any evidence of John Wayles Eppes residing in Louisianna, as of yet. - The John Wayles Eppes born 1773 at Monticello, who married Mary "Maria" Jefferson born 1778, died in Florida in Buckingham, VA in 1823. - Now they did have abour 6 children, 2 being mulatto slaves named Frances (Dean) Hemings born 1810 who settled in Buckingham, and the other was inherited from Maria Jefferson. Her name was Critta Wayles Hemings born 1771 (a dowry slave)who died in Buckingham. - I'll see if I can track down the offspring of John W. Eppes' 2 male sons Francis and Willie Eppes."
