Tennessee, Morgan County James Brasel

A petition from the citizens of Morgan County, Tennessee was microfilmed with the petitions filed in 1813, however, Morgan County wasn't formed until 1817. This petition was created by citizens who wanted to move the site of the county seat and was probably submitted to the Tennessee Assembly in or after 1817.

One of the men signing was JAMES BRASEL

His name appeared as follows on the petition:

Bejaman Stinesipher
Saml Stinesipher
Daniel Stinesipher
Joseph Stinesipher
John Stinesipher

Perhaps he was associated with a Stinesipher family?
