Notes
a. Note:   Notes from Scott Zollars, Timothy and Esther's gggg grandson:
  Timothy was a Revolutionary War veteran that served with Washington at Valley Forge.� He enlisted at Morristown, NJ, also known as the 3rd Battalion 5th Company under Capt. Henry Peter Dickerson for 3 years in 1777.� Timothy was discharged in 1781. His wife was Esther Sisel. Her name has also been spelled Cecil and Sessel.� John Gee, a relative of Esther, was a witness at their wedding in the vicinity of the William Hills Iron Foundry or the Furnace on Allison Creek, SC.� He is believed to have gone west in 1838. The Sexton family moved to TN about 1808.� Land being surveyed on the west side of New River on May 18, 1808 is the first record of Timothy in TN.� In the 1790 census he is listed with his wife, Esther, and two children (Timothy and William?) under the age of 16 in the Camden District of York Co., SC. Timothy was blind in his final years. Esther petitioned in 1838 for the remainder of her husband's pension in Morgan Co., Tn.� She was 83.
  Notes from Robert Bailey's book:
  He enlisted in the army during the Revolutionary War in Morristown, New Jersey in 1777. In 1781, he was discharged at Baltimore, Maryland. He fought in battles at Brunswick Amboy Wertfield, Staten Island and Long Island, New York. He married 18 Aug 1782 in York District, South Carolina, Esther SISEL (b. ca 1755-d. 23 Jan 1850 in Scott County, TN). After his marriage to Esther, he fought against the Catawba Indians and Tories. Timothy and Esther SEXTON were living in York District, South Carolina, in 1790 as they are listed on the 1790 Census. By 1800, they had left South Carolina and moved to Georgia, living in Wilkes County and Elbert County, Georgia. They then removed to Knox County, Tennessee. One of the first records of their appearance in Tennessee occurs in 1808. On 18 May 1808, Timothy SEXTON, Sr., surveyed land on the west side of New River opposite to the mouth of Buffalo in Campbell County, Tennessee. He also surveyed 108 acres of land on New River which included "the improvement on which he now lives" on 10 Dec 1809. Timothy and Esther continued to live in Campbell County, Tennessee until about 1819 when he removed to Brimstone Creek in Morgan County, Tennessee (now a part of Scott County, Tennessee). Timothy, Sr., died on 18 Jun 1832 in Morgan (now Scott) County, Tennessee and is probably buried in the Rob Sexton Cemetery near Round Mountain on Brimstone. Both Timothy and Esther received a pension for his service in the Revolutionary War.

  In the index to these books I found Timothy listed in this way
  Sexton, Timothy Pension Statement 3075 (7) Timothy Sexton or as Timothy Saxan served as Sgt in 3rd N.J. Regiment
  Also in reviewing these many pension abstracts I found a number of other Sextons which I will forward in another mailing however one that I found interesting was as follows
  War of 1812 Pensioners Vol3 page 1564 Sexton, William m Rody served Capt Tunnells Co Tn Mil. WO-9281
  I found this interesting as I know that is also the Co that Moses served in but had not been aware of William's War of 1812 service.
