He was the 111 year-old Bear Hunter reported upon in the Ashville Times article Sept. 9, 1928. If anyone is researching HUSKEY, I have a body of knowledge on him. Also have info on the "former" family Thomas had in TN before he came over the Mountain from Cosby, Cocke Co. TN. In Swain Co. he married Clarinda CONNER in 1874, while his former wife in Cocke Co., TN had been Sally VALENTINE, d/o William and Rebecca VALENTINE. Thomas and Sally had two or three children; one daughter, my GGM Rhoda Huskey, who m. 1)Noah GILLILAND and 2) Landrum FORRESTER. Does anyone have extant evidence of Thomas J. Huskey and Sallie Valentine's marriage? Does anyone have knowledge of the male child "Stanford, age 12 or 13" listed in 1880 Cocke Co., TN US Census, with Sally Valentine Huskey?

In search of whitted or hargrove. My grandmother was named Essie Hargrove and she was listed as being born in Sevierville, TN in 1894. She died in Greenville, SC in 1973. Whitted was her maiden name supposedly. Word has it that it was not her name but was chosen to protect her true identity. Apparantly my Great Grandmother was a Cherokee Indian. I have been unable to find any records. My grandmother even had a hard time proving she was a US citizen to draw Social Security. Unfortunately this is all that I have to go on as sad as it may be.

John B. Guinn married Sarah Varnell on Nov. 25, 1807. They had 6 children Matilda, Sarah, Covington, Mary Ann b. 1813, Charles Tellis b. July 4, 1821, and John(Jesse) Pierce b. Dec.24, 1825. All of the children were born in Sevier Co. as far as I know. I believe John's father to be either Isham Guinn or Charles Guinn. They were both in the area during the early 1800';s. Any help would be very much appreciated.

James ROGERS/RODGERS was born 2 July 1760 in Culpepper Co., VA. James was in Sevier Co., TN in 1788, and in Lincoln Co., TN in 1811. Marriage records of Madison Co., Mississippi Territory show that a James ROGERS married Polly SPEAKS on 17 June 1812. James was in Limestone County, Alabama from 1816 to about 1833 when he shows up in Franklin Co., TN, then in 1837 he is in Pickens Co., AL. He dies in Monroe Co., MS in 1843. In his Will he names his wife, Mary, and children Francis, Julia Ann, Martha, Silas, and Margaret. The wording of the Will—the children of my current wife, Mary—hints at the existence of a former wife and other children. Another query (without sources) indicates that James had a son named Joseph Larkin Rogers, born 21 August 1794 in TN. James ROGERS is a prime suspect for the father of my gg grandfather, Robert M. ROGERS, who was born in TN ca 1794. Can anyone furnish additional clues about the families of James ROGERS.

In 1837 and again in 1838 he and his son James made purchases at a grocery store. There was a Mansfield ANDERSON nearby. There was a great flood in Siever county in 1838.

HURST -- I am searching for Elihu D. HURST (born in Tn. in 1838), probably in Sevier or Claiborne County. It is believed that his family moved to Ky after his birth and Elihu and several brothers moved to The Hurst Nation area of west Tn. in the mid-1850,s. Oral history places Elihu and several brothers in the Sixth Tennessee Federal Calvary Regiment, under command of Col. Fielding Hurst, during The War Between The States. From the muster roles of that regiment, I can confirm Elihu's service, therein. However, I do not know the names of any of his brothers. I find in the muster several young Hurst,s , any of whom may have been Elihu's brothers. My best guess is Samuel,Levi, John and others. These names were carried on to some of Elihu's children. I shall welcome any help with clues as to the parentage of Elihu and the names of his brothers.

My grandfather, Robert Davis, changed his name when he was young, but he was an Ogle before then. He changed it to Robert Davis. My mother said that when they went to Tennessee to visit his family, he was called "Pink" Ogle. She said he had at least 12 siblings, and one brother moved to Mexico. He had been married before he married my grandmother, possibly to someone with the name of Cora. When we drove through Gatlinburg several years ago, my mother remarked that all the Ogles there were related to her father. Robert might not have had 12 siblings. My mother told me today that might be wrong. She could remember some names, a Gid (maybe Gideon?) Ogle, Russ Ogle, Ida Ogle, Eliza? Ogle. Can anyone help?

SEVIER -- I would like to find the descendants of John sevier, the frist governor of Tennessee. My great great grandfather's name was James A. Sevier. I have grown up with the understanding that I am a descendant of John Sevier, and am trying to find the connection. James A. may have been born in Kentucky in about 1822. My great grandfather, James W. Sevier was born in Missouri.
