KINGREE - I am looking for my ancestor, Henry Kingree/Kingory/Kingery. He was listed on the 1820 and 1830 census records. He may have been married to an Elizabeth (Peggy) Waite. According to a deed transaction in 1806, he sold the last of his property in Shenandoah County and was "residing in Sullivan Co. TN". However, I have not found any information for him in Sullivan. Just the two census records in Washington co. Does anyone have any information on this couple? Possibly have books of old marriages, deeds, births, etc. and would be willing to do a look up for me???? I would sincerely appreciate it. Pamela Kingree Moats
