My family surnames mostly come from Greene and Cocke Counties in Tennessee.I live close, so I research as much as possible, but of course there are still the brick walls that drive me insane!

Hi All Tennessee Researchers,

I'm interested in almost every county in West Tennessee, lots of counties in Middle and East Tennessee. My family has legally lived in West Tennessee since at least 1823.

Names: Morton, Cox, Horn, Tull, McIntyre, McIntire, Rogers, James, Day, Patridge, Partridge- mostly McNairy, Hardeman, and Chester Counties of Tennessee.
