Looking for info on Sarah (Sallie) Bean, possibily dau of Jacob Bean of Green Co. TN. She was born in VA but married Samuel Wear in Green Co. TN in 1789. Later the family moved to AL. Unsure if Sallie died prior to this move.

Good evening, everybody. I'm researching Tittle & McInturff lines in Unicoi County. They have shown up in Washington and Carter counties as well. I'm also looking for Hammitt/Hammett and Rheinhart/Rhinehart lines in Sullivan County. There are several variations of spellings for those last two surnames. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I will share any information I have that you may need. :)
