In Deed Book 7, page 26 and p. 104, Elizabeth DOWNS purchased some
property, and then gave it to her granddaughter, Elizabeth, the wife of
Prescott CRISP. This was about 1815, but I didn't record the date. This
Elizabeth DOWNS was an older lady by this time, if she had a granddaughter
grown and married, and she was a widow, and thus could purchase property on
her own, but I don't know more about her. But I think this is your same
Prescott Crisp. (Sent by a lady in Stewart CO. TN.

Stewart County Court Minutes

Prescott Crisp, deed of conveyance, to Allin Jones, 37 1/2 ac.
Wit: Emanual Jones

Prescott Crisp, deed of Conveyance, to Jaret Crisp, 75 ac.
Wit: Emanual Jones

Prescott Crisp, deed of conveyance, to Adlin Jones, 37 1/2 ac.

Apparently, Prescott traveled back to TN in 1829 to dispose of property he had there, as he was in GA in 1828 & 1830 census. There is a gap of records in TN for him between 1820 and 1829. Deed records show him doing business in NC during the 1823-1824. An 1818 deed record, Stewert Co. TN show him as resident of Lawrence Co., Missouri Territory.
