Scott Kirk,
I just saw your posting on Solomon Sessions on under the WorldConnectProject.
I am interested in Elizabeth Mary Sessions b. 1810.
We have a Mary Elizabeth Sessions who married Thomas Blackwell, Jr. as his second wife.  We know her birth date was 1810 and they were married in SC probably around 1829.  Their first son was Solomon S. Blackwell b. 1830.  They had a total of 10 children between 1830 and 1850-ish:  Solomon, Anna, Richard Alonzo, Joseph, Mary Emma, Auren, Sarah L., Hannah C., James Robert and Ella V.  They moved from SC to TN around 1837 eventually settling in Lauderdale Co., TN where they are buried.
Thomas Jr. is my husband's gg-grandfather and he descends from his first wife, Eliza Jane Gause.
I am in contact with Blackwell researchers who descend from his second marriage.. specifically Ellen Barfield who lives in Lauderdale Co.
I cannot find Solomon S. Blackwell anywhere after the 1850 census in Lauderdale Co., TN.
Do any of these names ring a bell?
I am interested to hear more about this line.
