Here is some information I've been able to find.Samuel Etris came to America from Amsterdam, Holland with his brother Peter. Samuel married a Barbara Whisenant in 1802 (not born in 1802). Their children were: Peter, Rebecca, Joseph, Mary, Henry and Elizabeth. Samuel died in 1841 and Barbara died in 1859. Joseph had at least one son named Bill who was born 12-9-1846 and died 2-2-1918. He served in the military during the Civil War. He married Louise Hunt who was from Shoal Creek, White County, GA and they had at least 12 children: Joe, Reuben, Frank, Harrison, Moody, Bill, Millard, Charlie, Judge, Alice, Mary and Cynthia.I hope some of this information is helpful.
