Doris, Perhaps you have information in your files which may address the following:
My mother's family left Sevierville, late 1800's, and came to Rutherford County, N.C. They were a union of McEntire and Breeden/Connatser (I also share a mutual great+ grandfather with the singer Dolly Parton--Henry Bohannan Sr.)
Many other folk from Sevierville settled into Rutherford County, and many of these helped establish homes in a hollow known as Shingle Hollow.
A friend of mine is a Parton.Before my mother passed away, she told me that this friend's great grandfather came from Sevierville about the same time her parents (McEntire+Breeden) did, and that both families were instrumental in building a church and camp meeting out of timber there in Shingle Hollow.My friend's g-grandfather's name was Millard Parton.One of his sons, Verno, married a Mary Jane Rainwater.
Do you have any information on this family in your Sevierville Parton files?
