Thomas Webb in his history of Dekalb Co, TN has James Tubb's wife as Elizabeth Fisher (pg.30). They were members of The Head of Enoree Baptist Church in Greenville Co, SC between 1799-1804. James Tubb, Sr. and wife, Elizabeth, were on Walker's Creek by 1808. From "The Tubb Family of Dekalb County" by Paul E. Dowell, Sr. sometime after the marriage, the Tubb family moved to South Carolina. They migrated to Tennessee about 1809 and settled in Smith County (now Dekalb) on Smith Fork just below the confluence of that stream with Walker's Creek. It appears that all of the children of James and Mary Fisher Tubb left South Carolina and lived for a time in Tennessee. Most of the families later moved from Tennessee to Mississippi, Louisiana, or Texas.

This author located a Tubb Cemetery at the corner of Smith Fork Rd. & Hannah Branch Rd. and at that cemeter are the headstones of James Tubb, Jr. B Mar. 18, 1788, Elizabeth B April 06, 1792, and their son John Balis B November 20, 1825. The James Tubb, Sr. cemetery is located on the old Tubb family homestead. From Temperance Hall follow Hwy. 264 north about a mile. Cross Walker's Creek bridge, turn right onto Lancaster Road go less than 1/2 mile to first house on left. Go up the gravel road park at the end. The cemetery is up the hill about 200 yards through a gate (be sure to secure gates when enter and leave). The cemetery is inclosed by a chain link fence and is very much overgrown, and uncared.

      John & Karenhapuck moved their family, along with other Tubb families, to Greenville Co., SC, ca 1780 and were listed in the census of that county in 1790 and 1800. In early 1800, probably in the first decade, they moved to Dickson Co., TN and ca 1817 they moved to Perry Co., AL where they remained until Thier deaths. John Tubb did service in the American Revolution, enlisting in September 1775 under Capt. William Lang of Col. Richardson's Regt. in SC. He was in the Tories at Reedy River and was captured. After he was release, or capture, he later joined a unit in NC, serving as Captian. He was in the Battle of Kings Mountain, where he was wounded in the right arm and side.
      John & Karenhappuck Had at least six children. However, there were five children listed in their H/H in the census of 1790 and ten in 1800. There were only six identified in John's Perry Co., AL Will of September 17, 1835. Thus if there were 10, four of them apparently died, without issue prior to date of the Will.
      After the death of Karenhappuck in late 1821, John Married 2nd Feraby Harrison. She was living when he died and was listed as heir in the Will. (Sources of information on this families includes, U.S. Census Records, John Tubb Will Perry Co., AL, "Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers and Patriots of Alabama", "South Carolina Roster of S.C. Patriots in American Revolution" and "The Tubbs Connections"). The book "THE TUBB FAMILY of MONROE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI AND THEIR KIN".
