Leonard Herrin Descendents of Knox Co., Tennessee Updated April 5, 2001
About Our Family Research
Leonard Herrin orginally came from Bath Co., Virginia. Appears in the 1850 Census of Knox Co., Tenn.. Later spelling of Herrin appears as "Herron" and that is the current spelling used by some of his sons. Other spelling is "Herren" used by some of his other sons. We have located one group in Loyal, Ky., most of them we believe stayed in East Tenn, however, some did go to Indiana. We have done extensive research on James Mathew Herron which is a son of Leonard. James Mathew had 8 children and this is the generation we have most of our information. We have a family reunion the 1st Sunday of October in Knoxville, Tenn.
