My mother's family, GIVENS, came from this county. William Givens was the patriarch, a doctor and once mayor of Gallatin. My grandfather was the youngest in the family. His name was Nathaniel Shores Givens. His only son, Spencer H. Givens, never married. I believe the Givens came from Kentucky and moved to Missouri.
