Greetings fellow researchers!! We are looking for the trees from which the good kernals of nuts fell. (Just a little humor!)These are the families we are researching:
Descendents of the Lowe(Low)of Johnson and Carter Counties in East Tennessee; Elliott (Ellet) (Elliot) of Carter County, Tennessee probably from North Carolina; Anderson (Scottish heritage in Carter County, Tennessee, but don't know from where they originated); Slemp families in Wythe or Smythe County, Virginia. Parks were from North Carolina and presently in Sullivan County, Tennessee.
We've been able to trace several back to the mid 1700's. Willing to share information with any interested researchers.
