Descendants of John Sevier, First Governor of Tennessee

Updated July 23, 2014

About Our Family Research

I have been researching my descendancy to John Sevier, first Governor of Tennessee, for over 3 years. I am his 6th great granddaughter through his son, Major James Sevier. I have acquired a lot of information using The Sevier Family History book by Nancy S. Madden, the Family Tree Maker Software and by searching death records, census records and information included in our written family history. I would love to find out more specific birth/death/marriage dates, full names, etc.

If you have any information or might be a relative, please e-mail me at
