      Hello Cuz. Happy Thanksgiving. Think the following will interest you:

      http://www.tngenweb.org/white/_minutes/1814_172.html

      Would Frances Hennessee:

      1. be a daughter-in-law of Patrick?
      2. should this read and interpreted as, "Francis", male form of this name
      3. a sibling James as he is too old to be a child of James?

      There no further references to the name, 'Frances or Francis' in James' line...DAH

      You flatter me to ask because I have always depended on you for solving Tennessee and James questions.
      Since court order signed by esquires and since in Burke records I do not recall any females on courts in 19th Century, I argue, "No," to question 1 and "yes" to question 2.

      Agreed.

      As for question 3, someone on 1815 court most likely was born before James moved to Tennessee in 1805, and all records of James and family in your file appear to be in Warren County, none in White.

      There are no Hennessees enumerated in the White County census of 1820. There are no earlier records available for White County.

      Date conflict exists but did you view http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mcgee/thomaswilcher.html which lists 1859 Frances Hennessee

      - This Frances was the first child and daughter of Patrick & Hannah Harrison Hennessee. Frances born in 1858 and died in 1863 [I1238].

      - as descendant of Thomas Wilcher and James David Hennessee? Were there any other Hennessee links back then in Sparta and in White County as there were in McMinnville and Warren County?

      While Patrick in my Burke thesis came on Great Wagon Road to Carolina, another fork of the Great Wagon Road, as I recall, followed a major Indian trail south southwest from Roanoke, VA area, entered Tennessee near Kingsport and went through Tennessee to present Georgia and Alabama, with side trails to the west along the way.

      May you continue to have fun with this and make it easy.

      I have concluded that this is another HENNESSEE conundrum. I've decided to link Frances to Patrick as an unconfirmed child. See comments within your text:
