Not Our Kesiah Hinds

At one time I thought it possible that Kissiah (Hines) Tom was a sister of Ann (Hinds) Rice, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Acklin) Hinds; however, a better candidate for their daughter surfaced (two doors down from Ann in the 1850 TN census).

Here's information about the other Kissiah:
