|Bio and Links|
Born in the lower Bull Run Valley of Anderson Co ,TN and baptized in the Bull Run River, my mom and dad bought 12.9 acres from the descendants of John and Sarah Cox in 1946. This has been home since that time. The Cox Cemetery is located on a hill behind my home for which I maintain as a voluntary caretaker. As such I wanted to know more about this family and started doing research online ,at the public library and the county archives. This area of 1000 ac was a 1788 NC Land grant to James Henry who conveyed it to his three married daughters, Elizabeth, Rachael and Ruby Catherine. |
A large number of my mothers ancesters are buried at Bakers Forge Cemetery in Campbell Co., Tn. Most were relocated there when TVA impounded Norris Dam and flooded nearby Loyston in Union Co.,Tn. At that time my mom age 12 moved with her grand parents Lassie Helen Craig Prater Turner and William Harvey Turner to land across the Bull Run River in Anderson Co from which is still in view from her front porch. My mom is related to the Sweats,Craigs,Dials,Praters,Turners and others at Bakers Forge . My grand father John York came with his family to South Clinton in Anderson Co in the 1920's from Cordell in Scott Co.,Tn and is related to the Yorks,Jeffers,Newports,Lewallens and Sextons of that county. I am far more knowledgable of my moms family. I get very confused when I do research on the Sextons of Scott Co. There are thousands!- and all with the same first and last name!Ugh!
I am a recently retired RN of 35 yrs. Local history,my 6 dogs, gardening, wildlife, preservation and conservation are passions.
I will always be eager to help with links,photos, transfers.
