    David,

    Below is a descendants chart of Joseph Couch. It was sent to me by a fellow
    researcher and is said to have come from a download from World Family Tree, but
    I have not been able to find it. I have emailed messages to all addresses on
    this chart and they have all bounced back. I have seen both Samuel and Timothy
    Couch in census of White and Warren co, TN but the only connection I have found
    is the Denton name given to a grand daughter of Timothy. Let me know what you
    think.

    Richard
