Need information on David E. Page who was in the 1850 census in Giles County, town of Campbellville. He was 65, a shoemaker born in VA. His wife was "Hanner", probably the Hannah Bush Parsons who married David E. Page Nov. 10, 1810 in Williamson County. I am hoping this couple may be the parents of my Sarah PAGE who married James HUDSPETH in 1839 in Maury County.
