Between 1825 and 1828 many families left the Franklin county, NC area and moved to Greene, Montegomery, Sumner, Pickens, Coosa, Ala. Holland Taunt married 1828 Israel Gray, Charlotte "Lotty" Taint married 1828 Ridgon Valentine Edwards. There wasCordy Tant or Yant with this group who bought land in Ala and Miss. Kinchen Taunt, Felson Nelson Taunt, and Herbert Taunt moved to Davidson county, Tenn between 1825 and 1833 with their mother Elizabeth Taunt. All claim to be born NC. There are some Fant families in this same area using the name Tant on marriage licences. 1830 to 1840 Talladega, Ala , there are some Yuants from Lincoln, Tenn using the name Taunt. Good Luck.
