I just recently discovered that my Great Grandfather was born in Morgan County and then moved to Knox County when he was six. I am trying to find out something about his parents. His name was James Houston RICH born in July of 1852. On his death certificate it states his parents names as Sam Houston RICH and Elmyra SHANNON. I have become confused by an article that have read and the 1870 Census where he is listed living with a John LLEWELLIN and his wife Elizabeth Elmyra SHANNON LLEWELLIN. So to say the least I am
confused maybe it is his mother and step father just not sure. Both James RICH and John LLEWELLIN were both involved in the founding of the Grassy Valley Baptist Church in Knoxville and is where one of James RICH'S son's is buried also! I have found that John LLEWELLIN was also from Morgan County so any help would be great I thank you for your help.
