Jesse's middle name may be Numon or Newman per Ron Prince. He is "Numon Prince" in 1830 Anderson Co, TN census.

Curious marriage of "Jesse T Prince" and "Saray Gray" 30 Sep 1854 Jackson Co, AL has led some to assume this with "Jesse Tansy Prince". Original image appears to "Jesse T Price" but is more likely Jesse T Trice, whose will mentions wife Sally. Jesse T Trice b.1828 to Jesse James Trice and Lydia Ann Arnett. Jesse d.1866 and Sally Ann Trice married Eldridge Sisk in 1866.

Story from Ethel Taylor:
"The first notation of Jesse is found in the 1820 census, Ashville, Buncombe Co. NC. his son Jonathan Jones was about 2 years old. The family lived in Buncombe Co. until about 1825. During that time, they added 2 more children, William H. and Elizabeth. It is assumed their parents were in the same area. Sometime about 1825, Jesse and Dellilah moved the family to Anderson Co. TN.
It is not known why they moved, perhaps part of the family had moved there. To get to Anderson County, the family rafted down the French Broad River to Knoxville TN on the Tennessee, then northwest into Anderson Co. The land deed for Jesse shows his land adjoined that of an Elizabeth Prince, perhaps his mother? There were a number of Princes in the area. Records show Jesse in the county for the next years and the family is on the Anderson Co. Census for 1830. During this time, Preshia, (my gggrandmother), Henry and Louvina were born.
By 1831, records show they had moved to Indiana briefly, where Zachariah and daughter Martha Ann were born. It is unknown where in Indiana they went, so this trip was probably overland through KY.
By 1834, the family, along with brother Zachariah and family had moved back south to Jackson Co. AL. Jesse obtained land near Estill Fork, and the family is shown there from 1840-1860 in the census. The family grew with the addition of Nathan, Sarah, George and Jesse Donald. There are some records in the old book from the Estill Fork Store showing the family doing business there during this time. The land that Jesse owned is still in the family, owned by some gg grandsons. For many years the store at Estill Fork was owned by a ggrandson, Pete Prince, who was also the postmaster. The land has grown to several thousand acres and is a hunting/fishing/campground lodge now."

The first notation of Jesse is found in the 1820 census, Asheville, Buncombe Co., North Carolina; his son Jonathan Jones was about 2 years old. The family lived in Buncombe Co., until about 1825. During that time, they added 2 more children, William Henry and Elizabeth. It is assumed their parents were in the same area. Sometime about 1825, Jesse and Delilah (Carter) moved the family to Anderson Co., Tenessee. It is not known why they moved, perhaps part of the family had moved there.

The land deed for Jesse shows his land adjoined that of an Elizabeth Prince, perhaps his mother? There were a number of Princes in the area.

By 1831, records show they had moved to Indiana briefly, where Zachariah was, and daughter Martha Ann, was born there. It is unknown where in Indiana they went, so this trip was probably over land through Kentucky. By 1834, the family, along with brother Zachariah and family had moved back south to Jackson Co., Alabama. Jesse obtained land near Estillfork, and the family is shown there from 1840-1860 in the census. The family grew with the addition of Nathan, Sarah, George and Jesse Donald. There are some records in the old book from the Estillfork Store showing the family doing business there during this time. The land that Jesse owned is still in the family, owned by some gggrandsons.

Missed a critical paragraph: "Jesse and Delilah moved to Fannin County Ga, sometime after 1860 and died there about 1865. Many of the Prince family are buried in Jackson County AL, and there are still many relatives in the area."
[kdd: Fannin Co, GA is next to Gilmer Co, GA where Henry Carter & Martha Parham moved their family ]
