Valentine Sevier-Family Record Greeneville, Tennessee Transcribed from the original, hand written family record of births, marriages and deaths of the Valentine Sevier family. It is very much like a Bible record, but written on three sheets of paper. The original was discovered in 1985 in the effects of our great-grandmother, Nannie Leila Sevier (Sabin) of Jonesborough, TN (1856-1935) who was the only daughter of Dr. William Robertson Sevier. Thank you to Mary Sabin Floyd for allowing me to scan the originals. It appears that this record was kept by Valentine Sevier, with the last entry approximately 1848, prior to the birth of his last child. The last entries appear to have been made by another family member, possibly his second wife, Vinerah Cannon Sevier. Note: I have not changed the spelling on any of the names...they have been transcribed as they are written, which includes nicknames. The "old store house" of Mr. Deaderick could be "stone house."
