East Tennessee Pioneers


Welcome to East Tennessee!   The photograph  is of the Nolichucky River, between Erwin and Jonesborough. 
God's Country

Our roots are buried deep in the hills of East Tennessee.   My mother's families,  descendants of Frederick Tillman White and Jesse Davis, were present in Greene Country prior to 1800 and remained there  when other family members migrated west to Kansas and Missouri.

My father was born in Jonesboro (Jonesborough), the home of his Sevier and Cunningham ancestors.  The Cunningham, Sevier, Galbreath and Blair families were early settlers of Washington and Greene Counties.  Captain Robert Sevier, my 4th Great Grandfather and younger brother of General John Sevier,  died from wounds received at the Battle of King's Mountain.

My East Tennessee families and projects have become so many, I thought it would be helpful to create a "Gateway" site for my East Tennessee research, including my family Gedcoms, early 1900  photographs, vintage postcards of East Tennessee towns, and the "public" ETN web sites I host.   Enjoy your visit!  Most of my history, genealogy, and vintage postcard sites are indexed on THIS PAGE.


  • Diligent Search underway for at least one  PHOTOGRAPH of each of the children of James Madison White of Greene County, Tennessee.  Please check the outline for this family, and if you have  old photographs of any of the siblings, I'd love to have a scanned copy!  Pat Sabin
