Help!!!!!! LEACH Has anyone untangled the Leach families of Claiborne/Union/Campbell
counties? Is anyone working on untangling these Leach families. It appears
probable there were three brothers, David, born about 1805; William, born
about 1806 and John, born about 1821. David settled in the Lead Mine Bend
area, William and John settled near the Claiborne line in Campbell county.
I suspect they are grandsons of William LEACH who settled in Washington
county TN in the 1780's.

What was the relation of VAN BEBBER and DAVIS families in early CLAIBORNE
County, TN. The VAN BEBBER's that came here in 1796 were children of Isaac
VAN BEBBER, deceased, and Sarah DAVIS/VAN BEBBER. Sarah remarried William
GRIFFEY and it seems she came here with them. Aaron DAVIS purchased a large
farm adjoining the VAN BEBBER farm. John VAN BEBBER purchased 3250 acres
of the HENDERSON Grant, also, and immediately sold several hundred acres
to members of the DAVIS family. QUESTION: What was the relation of the
Aaron DAVIS family to Sarah DAVIS/VAN BEBBER/GRIFFEY??

I inadvertantly posted my E-Mail address in error. If any one has tried
to answer my query, I hope you will send it again, please. I am searching
for info. on Tazewell area surnames: SINGLETON-HIPSHER-McGINNIS-ADAMS or
ALLEN Parrot Singleton married Nancy McGinnis, shown on the 1860 census.
Emaline Adams or Allen, married to Jessie Hipsher, date unknown. Mattie
Hipsher born 1887,their daughter, married to Torrence/Terrence? Singleton.
Mattie and Torrence had at least 8 children, some of whom lived in or around
the Thornhill, or Tazewell area. Their sons were: Madison Singleton Woodrow
Singleton Bassie Singleton Their daughters were: Elva May Singleton Treva
Singleton Elsie Singleton Sophia Singleton. I also believe that many of
them are buried near Thornhill, close to the Cedar Springs Missionary Church.
Some may have been members. If any one can help with info. regarding these
relatives, I would much appreciate it, "Parrot" has me stopped
in 1860 on the Singleton side..but I can trace the Hipsher line to 1774.
