The Fifth District….

Sometime between 1825 and 1830, James Wharton moved to the 5th District of Davidson County, TN.  There he and his wife, Elizabeth Searles raised sixteen children.  Their daughter, Elmira Wharton married Thomas Dixon Morgan in May 1861.

Sometime between 1850 and 1860, Joseph Morgan moved his family to the 5th District of Davidson County, TN from Jackson County, TN.  There he and his wife, Nancy Williams raised eight children.  Their son, Thomas Dixon married Elmira Wharton in 1861.

For the next 100 years, the Wharton and Morgan descendants would live pretty much in the same area of the 5th District. When I was born 100 years later, my mother and father had built their dream home on land owned by my paternal grandparents in the 5th District of Davidson County.  When my parents sold their home in 1985, my family had lived in the 5th district for 155+ years!
