Can provide research assistance in East Tennessee

+8 votes
I live about 20 miles west of Knoxville, TN and can cover most of the state from here east to the border of North Carolina.  I occasionally travel to Nashville and may be able to assist in a search there with some notice.

I could possibly travel to the Asheville, NC area, if needed.  It would be a great excuse to go to the Biltmore.

Hello, Sylvia Hathaway here. My line in TN consists of Neal’s, Snider’s, Henderson, and Walkers. My question however is on my husband’s Hathaway line. His 3rd great grandfather was was Joseph Franklin Hathaway  (Hathaway 2195 on Wiki) who was said to have been born in Alabama in 1828. I have never found any solid evidence of his father who was said to have been Abraham Hathaway unknown birth date but lived in East Tennessee, but died when Joseph was 12 years old in about 1840. I did find a Hathaway at some point in E TN but could not find any info to prove he was Joseph’s relative. Joseph wrote a family history when he was quite elderly, and said Abraham participated in the war of 1812 in New Orleans. Here is a link to what I had compiled quite a while back  

Could you tell me if you could find out if there are any more Abraham Hathaway’s in TN who might be a  fit for J.F Hathaway’s father? 

Would be happy to pay any expenses for your troubles.

Thank you, Sylvia Hathaway

Hi, Sylvia...

Got your message, let me do some digging and I'll get back with you in a few days with any leads.


Hello, again Sylvia.

Unfortunately, I have just started preparing my elderly parent's house for sale, so I'm going to have to rescind my offer to help in Tennessee.  I'm so sorry for any inconvenience, and for the delay in getting back to you.  Hopefully in the near future I will be able to help.

Good luck in your search!
