Help!!!!!! LEACH Has anyone untangled the Leach families of Claiborne/Union/Campbell counties? Is anyone working on untangling these Leach families.

I suspect they are grandsons of William LEACH who settled in Washington county TN in the 1780's.

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.
