Hey Jess, There was a mass migration from Caswell Co. and these folks ended up in Benton Co. Tenn. One of my relatives Josiah Turner Florence was with them. He was a school teacher. I understand they were held up for a while in Buncomb Co. NC due to sickness. They were going to Texas, but when they got to Benton Co. Tenn. they liked it so well they stayed there.
Jess I need to ask some more questions about my Herndon's too.Please contact me via e-mail. Thanks, Jim Florence
