HI folks.this is my first post, so bear with me.am looking to connect the earliest messamores in tennessee to their ancestors.My direct line is Claude E. M(messamore spelled this way unless otherwise stated)b. 1921 in Knox cty TN, Samuel Bradley M, b. 1887, anderson cty, TN, Stephen M, b. 1857 in anderson cty,TN; George Dunlap M, b1832 in TN, and his father James M, born about 1801 in VA.
james father is possibly a william M. in knox county tn in 1825-28(also were sons john and jacob).
does anyone have any info on any anderson county TNMessamores prior to 1870?any knowledge of connections of these messamores backward to VA, PA, NC or elsewhere.
any knowledge of connections of these to Greene county, TN misemers of the 1790s?
thanks in advance for any help....and happy hunting.
