I am researching the TOVREA family of Anderson Co., TN. The surname was spelled TOVERA and TOBERY in court records.

My earliest known Tovrea ancestor was Thomas TOVREA, who first appeared in Anderson Co., TN records in March of 1804 when he purchased land from Manpage VOWELL. Thomas'wife's name was Dorcas. Known children were John, Jane, and Robert. There was also a Phillip who could have been a son, nephew, or brother. Thomas died in Anderson Co., TN, in June of 1807.

My next Tovrea ancestor was Thomas' son John, who was born 1770 - 1780, and died Bet. 1831 - 1832 in Anderson Co.,TN. He married MARY Abt. 1800. She was born Bet. 1775 - 1782, and died Aft. 1860 in Probably IL.

Children of JOHN TOVREA and MARY are:

1. CHARLOTTE TOVREA, b. Abt. 1804, TN; d. Bet. 1851 - 1860, Anderson Co., TN. (My line) She married THOMAS HALE Abt. 1827. He was born Abt. 1806 in TN.

2. BARTLEY TOVREA, b. Abt. 1820; m. MATILDA LOW, 03 June 1833, Knox Co., Tennessee. He left Tennessee and went to IL.

3. RACHEL TOVREA.

4. JOHN TOVREA.

CHARLOTTE TOVREA, b. Abt. 1804, TN; d. Bet. 1851 - 1860, Anderson Co., TN. (My line) She married THOMAS HALE Abt. 1827. He was born Abt. 1806 in TN. Children are:

A. MARY JANE HALE, b. January 1828,(my line)

She married James R. RUSSELL.

B. KATHARINE HALE, b. Abt. 1829, TN.

C. JOHN HALE, b. Abt. 1836, TN.

D. ELMIRA HALE, b. Abt. 1838, TN.

E. LOUISA HALE, b. Abt. 1843, TN.

I would like to hear from any Tovrea researcher, especially Thomas' line. Does anyone know where Thomas was before he appeared in Anderson Co., TN?
