Main article: Sevier County, Tennessee


General

Gordon Aronhime (1911-1983) collected information on hundreds of Southwest Virginia and East Tennessee pioneers. His note cards, which reference more than 4,000 early settlers of the Holston-Clinch River area and East Tennessee (1770s-1790s), are held at the Library of Virginia. The cards have been digitized and made available online.[1]

As of August 2010, a query for persons born in Sevier (County), Tennessee at World Connect, results in more than 135,000 entries!

For early settlers (pre-1796), start with:

  • East Tennessee Historical Society. First Families of Tennessee: A Register of Early Settlers and Their Present-day Descendants. Knoxville, Tenn.: East Tennessee Historical Society, 2000. FHL US/CAN Book 976.8 H2ff.

Books that discuss local families include:

  • Karr, Beulah. The History and Folks of English Mountain: Sevier County, Tennessee. 2004. FHL US/CAN Book 976.8893 D2k.
  • Reagan, Donald B. Smoky Mountain Clans. 3 vols. Knoxville, Tenn.: D.B. Reagan, 1978-1983. FHL FAM HIST Book 929.273R22b 1978. [Discusses the Bradley, Conner, Emert, Huskey, McCarter, Reagan, Shultz, Trentham, Watson, and Whaley families.]
  • Russell, Gladys Trentham. Call Me Hillbilly: A Personal Account of Growing Up in the Smokies near Gatlinburg. Alcoa, Tenn.: Russell Pub., [1988]. FHL US/CAN Book 976.8893 D2r.
  • Russell, Gladys Trentham. Smoky Mountain Family Album. Alcoa, Tenn.: Russell Pub., 1984. FHL US/CAN Book 976.889 D2r.
  • Sevier County Heritage Book Committee. Sevier County, Tennessee, and Its Heritage. [Waynesville, N.C.]: Walsworth Pub. Co., 1994. FHL US/CAN Book 976.8893 H2s.
