Jesse S. Prescott
1. JESSE S.2
was born 1800 in Barnwell Dist, SC. He married (1) SARAH
CARTER Abt. 1820. He married
(2) TRINITY Abt. 1827. She
was born 1807 in GA.
Notes for JESSE S.
Sources say that Jesse Prescott's father was John Prescott (r.w.s.) from
Barnwell Dist. SC. Most sources do not give name of mother but one source gives
Jesse's mother's name as Trinity. Most sources say Jesse married Sarah Carter.
On the 1850 census for Alachua Co, FL Jesse is married to Trinity. Children
listed on the 1850 census are: Robert 21, Trinity 19, John 18, Ely 16, Nelson
13, Thomas 11, and Rebecca 7.
It is gererally understood that Jesse had two older sons, Moses b. 1821 and
Samuel E. b. 1824.
There are 5 years between Samuel and Robert. So could Sarah Carter be the
mother of Moses and Samuel? Then between 1824 and 1829 she died and he married
1800 - Barnwell Dist, SC - HH of John Prescott. This is the best bet for 1800
for Jesse although could not find this John in 1810 or 1820. Early census
records for Georgia are missing.
1830 - Appling County, Georgia
1840 - Hamilton County, Florida
1850 - Alachua County, Florida
Jesse and Trinity Prescott sold 80 acres for $1600 in Hamilton Co, FL
Feb 17, 1842 -
Jesse bought 80 acres land in Bradford Co, FL May 1,1855. He lived in
Alachua Co, FL.
Jesse bought 40.02 acres land in Bradford Co, FL, 1855. He lived in Columbia Co,
In 1859 he sold the land to Benjamin Kite and said he lived in Orange
county at the time. Three of his sons are in Brevard District - Orlando, Orange
Co, FL in the 1860 census. But we have found no trace of Jesse after the
sale of land in 1859.

Notes for SARAH CARTER:
Have not found parents, death, or marriage dates for Sarah. She may have died
between 1824 - 1829.
Notes for TRINITY:
1850 Census Trinity is living with Jesse Prescott and children. It's still
unclear if she is the mother of all the children. It is believed that Jesse
first married Sarah Carter and later married Trinity. In 1850 Trinity is 51
years old so born in 1799. On 1830 and 1840 census records Jesse's wife was born
between 1800/1810. It seems Trinity is the right age to be the wife in 1830 &
1840. Another question that pops up is "Did Trinity bring children to the
marriage or are all the children Jesse's?"
