In search of whitted or hargrove. My grandmother was named Essie Hargrove and she was listed as being born in Sevierville, TN in 1894. She died in Greenville, SC in 1973. Whitted was her maiden name supposedly. Word has it that it was not her name but was chosen to protect her true identity. Apparantly my Great Grandmother was a Cherokee Indian. I have been unable to find any records. My grandmother even had a hard time proving she was a US citizen to draw Social Security. Unfortunately this is all that I have to go on as sad as it may be. I hate being 36 years old and only being able to trace my anscestors to my grandpartents. My mother is 82 years old and refuses to discuss any of this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am seeking information concerning my gg-grandfather, James B. HOUK.According to the 1900 TN Census he was born Feb 1843. He marriedLucinda Baker in Knox County on Mar 15,1864. The 1850 Sevier CountyCensus shows James living in the household of Martin HOUK, age 83. Isuspect that Martin was the grandfather of James. The female livingin the 1850 household of Martin HOUK is shown to be Margaret HOUK. Ihave reason to think she was Margaret/Peggy Hooper prior to hermarriage to a HOUK.
