Hello to all the Pinkerton researchers in tennessee..I have spent more time in tennessee thses last 10 years then in arizona.
fyi,,most if not all the Pinkertons in tn came from NC and Pa. due to the mountainous terrain..in 1820, there was only 6 familiesof Pinkertonsin tn. Most of the Pinkertons are all related in some way shape or form.
in 1850, there was a grand total of 57 pinkertons listed in the 1850 census,I have most of their names at the present time.
I am searchingJames H Pinkertonfrom tn. my gg.. I have come to the conclusion this wasn't his real name. I feel hes the son of Hugh Pinkerton in bedford county. Most of these Pinkertons moved on to hickman after 1848.if you need any info please free to send me an emailthanks larry
