Come help Freddy, Tim, John and Mickey write a book about the Northeast Communties of Sumner Co. TN!
Dear Fellow Sumner County Researcher,
Currently a book is being planned detailing family histories of some the early settlers in Northeast Sumner County. The area being considered consists of the old 15th district which is currently the 12th, including the city of Westmoreland. The boundaries run from the north, along the Kentucky line to Macon County to the east, then south along the Macon County line to the ridge south of the Westmoreland city limits, then west along the ridge to the Oak Grove Road, then north back to the Kentucky line.
This book will be more of a family history account than a genealogy listing of families, although we will include three to four generations from the first known settler. We will include written and oral family histories as well as historical information as to their origin and the area in the district where they lived, their occupations, etc.
Some of the surnames currently under consideration are; Anderson, Angela, Beasley, Black, Bracken, Braswell, Brown, Burnley, Caldwell, Carter, Clark, Cline, Creasy, Davis, Dorris, Doss, Duffer, Durham, Escue, Fikes, Gilliam, Graves, Gregory, Harrison, Hawkins, Heath, Hodges, Holmes, Hunt, Keen, Mandrell, Meador, Morris, Nimmo, O'Neal, Pearson, Perdue, Perry, Pike, Richmond, Rippy, Sarver, Simpson, Slayton, Stalcup, Tooley, Troutt, Turner, Tuttle, Williams, Winn, and Wix. Our plan is to include families that were in the area from 1810 - 1860. There will be more added or some deleted as we edit our work.
We are looking for folks that would like to contribute to their family stories as well as some individuals to write the entire story of their family. The stories will be on the average of five pages in length plus room for a picture. Even if you only have an old family photo to share we encourage you to submit it for consideration. If you would like to participate we will send you an outline to go by as well as the information that will be excepted. All information must be documented as to its source from which it was obtained. We reserve the right to edit, any and all material submitted.
