The one to whom I was referring is my father who was born in 1921 in Bradley County Tennessee. Flint Springs to be exact. Next time I am in the area I will visit the family cemetary and see how far back I can go. My recollection is that family members who died as early as 1880 are buried there. The name seems to unusual for there not to be some link. Do you know anything else about this branch of Sinor tree or origin of the name? Any help would be appreciated.
