The Memoirs of Micah Taul can be found at Appalachian State University (and the Univ. of KY). After the War of 1812 Micah Taul lived in Winchester, [Franklin Co.] Tennessee, before removing to Alabama. There were several references to Taul (as an attorney) in Revolutionary War pension applications from Franklin Co., Tennessee. Micah Taul's son, Thomas (1802-1829), was killed in Franklin County, TN, by his [Thomas's] brother-in-law, Rufus Anderson, and the accused was acquitted of murder.
Did Taul know any of my Tennessee relatives in Franklin County? The Rices, Hinds, Acklins? Colonel Taul's memoirs included a reference to the Lee family. Could it be a reference to the Lee sisters who married into my Acklin family (though not my direct line)? Hope to eventually read the memoirs and find out.
