Does your Smith family come from Knox Co TN?

I have been researching for over 15 years. This past year I started working on a history project for Knox County, Dist 19 Beaver Ridge [Karns], Dist 9 Solway & part of Dist 4 Anderson Co. TN finding the families that moved to this area prior to 1840. This family list is growing, I have 60+ surnames and over 100 total that lived in the above districts . If you believe you have family that came from this area first check the 1830/1840 census on my Blog.

I am interest in contacting family members that may be interested in adding a brief history of the families and will share what I have found if you see a surname that you may believe is a family line. Pryor to 1860 a lot of the sons moved to Texas and Missouri.

I am writing a book and plan to publish it this fall, 2010. Printed copies will be given to the Historical Society of Knoxville. I plan on including all the families that continued to live in this area through 1860. I will include land records, census, tax and court records if found. I will not be doing a genealogy study of the family lines but I plan on doing a family group sheet using census records.
