Argelon Toone (George; John Lewis; Lewis; Mark) was born about 1819 in Mecklenburg, Virginia, he married in 1845 Frances E. Toon (John; John Lewis; Lewis; Mark). The first time I find them together on census records is in 1850 Giles County Tennessee household number 682-907, in home of Argelon's parents George 60 (born in Virginia) and Ann 60 ( born in Virginia). Argelon is listed on the 1850 record as being 31 and born in Virginia, Frances E.J. is listed as 25 and born in Virginia, also listed are their two children Virginia Ann 4 ( 1846 Tennessee) and John William 2 (1848 Tennessee). Argelon and Frances would have a daughter Perlinia Ellen in 1857, and she would marry Abner Ira Holland. Abner and Perlinia had four children.Mary Lee Holland born 1877 married Asa Tillman Daly; Pearlie Holland born 1881 married Ammie Hardiman; Thomas E. Holland born 1885 married Lula Mae Houchin; and Grady Holland born 1888 married Ellen Gowen. Argeleon and Frances also had a son Jeff born in 1862 in Limestone County, the last I have of him is in 1880 in the home with his sister Perlinia and husband Abner Holland.

Rochelle born 1804 Virginia. William L. had nine children by two earlier marriages; he and Mary Ann had six together.
