Main Feature

Welcome Readers.

I hope you will find something new for your records. Much of this information relates to the families who settled DeKalb, Van Buren, Warren & White counties, Tennessee as early as 1800. Some blood-lines are traced to the nobility and royalty of Great Britain and in some cases to William the Conqueror...

You will probably like to see a list of your ancestors. Here's how you do it...

1. Find your page in "Search"
2. Select tab "Ancestors"
3. Select tab "Descendants", change from "8" to read "30 Generations"

Now you will see a list of your ancestors and their children with notes and commentary.

Call me if you like...

David Alden Hennessee

An explanation for the use of parentheses():

- its use implies an educated guess, not a certainty, i.e., "(Warren County) Tennessee" is to be read as "Warren County" is the likely county and "Tennessee", without parens is the source-cited state, etc. &

I collect data, cite its source and suggest the reader compare with their own research. I complile and thereby offer confirming or conflicting information for the reader. I am always glad to stand corrected. It is not my intention to present my compilations as "gospel", complete and without error.
