Today on our local online newspaper, Hamilton County Historian, John C. Wilson, who owns the paper and published 3 books writes an article about Families in our area weekly. This weeks featured family is the Evatt/Evitt families of VA, TN, SC, and Ga. In reading the first 15 postings on this forum, I would suggest all read this article, and some questions might be answered.
Then click on "Memories" and the article should appear.
I hope it will help someone in their search. I have no connection to the family other than knowing H. Q. Evatt who was sheriff of Ham. County, TN for a number of years and was very well liked by all. Good Luck and God Bless All.
