Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me with some Tatum family history. I am trying to find more (better) info. on the Hugh Tatum line. My line goes something like this:
1. My g-grandfather was Ben K. Tatum, he died in 1964 in Dawson Co., Ga. 2. His father (my gg-grandfather) was Reuben Tatum b. 1856 in Habersham Co., Ga. 3. His father (my ggg-grandfather) was Solomon Tatum b. 1806 in Pendleton, SC and d. 1882 in Habersham Co., Ga 4. His father (my gggg-grandfather) was Hugh Tatum b. 1782 in Pendleton, SC and d. 1862 in Dawson Co., Ga
From there it gets sketchy. From what I think I know, Hugh may have had at least 2 brothers named William and Edward and that their father's name was John Tatum who d. 1824 as his will was probated in Anderson SC. Again, I think John's father may have been Edward Tatum d. 1811 and that Edward's father may have been Nathaniel.
I have looked at a lot of Tatum history and there was so much use of the same first names (Edward, William, etc) that it's hard to keep them apart.
Do you know anything about this family and how they may trace back to the first Tatums to America?
