The Jaquish families in Tennessee and their relatives in Covington, KY, and the Cincinnati, OH, area, are closely related. Many of the Tennessee family are located in Athens, TN. They are descended from Charles E. Jaquish and Leona Jones Jaquish who moved to Tennessee from KY/OH. The northern Kentucky group is descended from members who came from Vermont. The Vermont members were part of the original group that goes back to the Jaques in Newbury, Massachusetts led by Henry Jaques (1619 - 1687) and his wife Anna Knight (d. 1705).
Much of the history (esp. relational data) of this family is contained in a book compiled by several of us and published in 1995:Jaques Family Genealogy, Edited by Roger Jaques and Patricia Jacques for the Jaques Family Association, Library of Congress catalog card number 95-80955.
