Thanks for making this possible! Have lots of relatives in Tennessee. Right now I am researching Morrison, Sharp(e), and Alexander in Wilson County, David Morrison in particular, late 1700s-early 1800s. He seems to come out of nowhere, and I've got lots of theories to choose from.

Hello to all you TN researchers. ..I am from the Middle TN area. I've been researching my father's surname (ELDER), for over 14 yrs. now, with much needed breaks in between.

Funny thing though, since doing the "DNA" testing through the Family Tree DNA Project, ourour dna is a very close match to a "FOX" line !!!!!! So now, I am so, absolutely stuck in finding our true slave owners !!!!!!
