I am at a loss for words. I have desperately been trying to locate my husbands 4 x Great Grandfather. He lived in Washington County, TN most of his life before dying in Cocke County and is buried there. I know that Washington Co. TN used to be Washington County North Carolina. He was born in North Carolina, and I suspect it was Washington County.I have him first appearing in Washington County Tennessee in 1800 as his oldest son was born there. His name was Abraham Tinker and he married a lady named Polly we do not know her last name. It was not Polly Hobday as some sources try to attribute it to being. She married Edward Tinker of Craven Co. NC, no relation between the two. Now, Abraham was born 1 Oct. 1775 in North Carolina. I do not really know where. Just goin on a hunch that it may have been Old Washington County, North Carolina. Any thoughts?
