Looking for any information on the White families in Jefferson County prior to 1830. Truelove WHITE (my gggrandfather) was born in Jefferson County in 1816. He had moved to Hamilton County by 1840 and on to Missouri by 1853. I have been unable to connect him to siblings or parents. His childrens names were: James, Thomas, John W., Martha, Elijah, Mary, Sarah, Alfred, George, and Tennessee. His wife's name was Eliza or Elzira. Truelove is such an unusal first name that there is a good chance that was his mother's maiden name. On the census records he says his father is from Virginia and his mother from Tennessee.

In search of any information about my paternal grandmother, Bessie Turner. She was born 13-Oct-1864 somewhere in Tennessee, and married Thomas A. Price on 19-Sep-1883, somewhere in Tennessee. At the suggestion of several rooters, I sent off for her death certificate and learned that her mother's maiden name was TRIBUE. The 1870 Tennessee Census of Jefferson County lists a Doct. J. Tribue and a Jabob Tribue. Does anybody have any record of a Tribue, or possibly a Trabue, with a daughter born possibly between 1842 and 1848 marrying a Turner who was born possibly between 1838 and 1844 - in Jefferson County or any other county in Tennessee?

I am looking for information on the Morie families of Jefferson County. My grandfather, Henry Morie, was born in the 1870s in the border area of Tennessee and North Carolina. He was orphaned at an early age, according to family legend, and made his way west. Henry's father was Karl Morie, and I understand that Henry had a sister, but the family was split up. I travelled through Jefferson County some years ago and found addresses of a number of people with surnames of Morie and Marie. Any information linking my family with Jefferson County would be appreciated.

I am trying to determine more about the family and ancestors of John J. SMITH, who was probably born in 1828 in Jefferson County, TN. His father may have been Jacob C. Smith, who lived in Jefferson County, TN. The 1850 census for that county shows Jacob C. Smith's family with a son John J., aged 22, identified as a farmer. Jacob's wife, Katherine, was apparently his second wife and was too young to be John's mother. On September 22, 1852, John Smith married Matilda America McGee in Jefferson County. One of their sons was Jacob Burrell Smith, perhaps named after his grandfathers Smith of Franklin Co. and Burrell McGee of South Carolina. Thanks for any information.
