    *******************
    Jesse is believed to be the son of Francis Sampson who died in Smith County, Tennessee sometime after 02 September 1832 when he made application for a Revolutionary War Pension. He states "In the year 1777 or thereabouts, he enlisted for the term of 18 months in the County of Charlotte and State of Virginia." He states "I was born November 27 day 1747" and "about 23 years ago I moved to Tennessee Smith County where I have resided ever since and now reside" This would put Francis Sampson in Smith County, Tennessee circa 1809.
