Re: JACOB DRENNEN of Nicholas Co., WV.
Thank you, Mary. Another coincidence?- Patrick Slatery also came down to the same area in TN and ended up in what is now Knox Co., TN. The first mention ofthe Drennens is on 6/9/1783, Augusta Co., TN "On the Indian Draft on the west side of the Greenbriar River." "..... Patrick Slatery asignee of Lauren Drennen a certain tract or parcel of land containing Three Hundred and by Survey .....21st day of June 1780...." Later his acreage shows up in Greenbriar Co. If you should see anything that would give some information I should sincerely appreciate hearing from you. My ancestors wifes name is unknown but is believed to have been Ann Coppock. The Slaterys are First Families of Tennessee and arrived in this country around 1675. Thanks so much for answering. -Martha
