NOTES: This is from a copy of a Cartwright Bible Record:

"Jefferson Davis' mother was Jane Cook - Jane Cook and Adaline Cook Stovall's Mother were sisters - Therefore Adaline and Jeff were first cousins,  (Adaline Cook Stovall was Norman Lee Fox I's great-grandmother)" 
THIS IS NOT TRUE! I have never seen this in my research, but everything else I've found (including a birth record from Sumner County) gives Adaline's mother as Elizabeth Tatum Rickman, daughter of Mark Rickman and Mary Harper.
