First Name:

East Tennessee Descendants of Peter Garner (Germany 1725)

About Our Family Research

Peter Garner apparently came to North Carolina in the early 1740's and started his family. Two sons, Peter and William, began the lines that are documented today. A grandson of Peter (2), Eli Garner, moved to Blount County Tennessee, on Ellejoy Creek, an area now known as Old Chilhowee. The descendants are still here. There are many questions as to how Eli' grandfather Peter(2) knew of this area, but he bought 50 acres in the early 1820's, which Eli later bought from him. Possibly, Peter(2) served in the military, and saw this area while on his travels in the military. At any rate, we know a little, and question much, but are always looking to find out more.
