One of the complications of researching the Letsinger family tree is the fact that there are two separate, unrelated Letsinger families.The other complication is the fact that members of these two families were in TN at about the same time, howbeit in different counties.
One of the Letsinger families descends from John Letsinger of SC.Some of John's descendants moved west in the early 1800s to Middle Tennessee, settling primarily in Maury County.
The other Letsinger family descends from Philip Letsinger of VA.In the early 1800s, Philip moved his family into East Tennessee, settling in Knox County.
Although separated by many miles and not related, an additional complication of researching these Letsinger families is the fact that there are many of the same given names common to both family lines.One variation regarding some of the Letsingers of the John/SC group is the fact that they spell their surname Ledsinger.To my knowledge, all of the Letsingers of the Philip/VA group spell their surname Letsinger.
Anyone who has reason to believe that their Letsinger line descends from John of SC should contact Barbara Prestage for assistance with this family.Her email is: email@example.com.Barbara does not do Internet searching, so if you have a question about the SC Letsingers, send her an email.
On the other hand, there are many descendants of Philip Letsinger who can help with queries about members of that family line.Some of them have posted queries or replies on this forum.If you can, save time by emailing your query directly to one or more of those Philip Letsinger descendants.
