'''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 [http://www.lva.virginia.gov/public/guides/aronhime/ online].<ref>[http://virginiagenealogyblog.com/2008/10/12/original-virginia-records-imaged-and-indexed-online/"Original Virginia Records Imaged and Indexed Online,"] ''Arlene Eakle's Virginia Genealogy Blog,'' 12 October 2008.</ref>

Has anyone studied my Sevier County, Tennessee family before?

Message boards and online family trees can help you learn if someone is actively researching your ancestors. More than 50 books or articles have been published about Sevier County's families. Descendants of some historic residents have had their DNA tested. <no include> </no include>

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.

Bibliography

It is anticipated that this bibliography will eventually identify all known family histories published about residents of this county. Use this list to:

  • Locate publications about direct ancestors
  • Find the most updated accounts of an ancestor's family
  • Identify publications, to quote Elizabeth Shown Mills, about an ancestor's "FAN Club" [Friends, Associates, and Neighbors]
