My husband's paternal grandparents and great-grandparents came from Bryson City and Swain County in the late 1800's.Thomas Jefferson, Sr married Nancy Jarrett & had a son, Thomas, Jr. who was married to Callie (Jane) Anderson who was a mid-wife. Her father was William(Bill) Anderson and mother was Jane Russell or Limpus(possibly Olympus), who was one half Cherokee. Her father was a full-blooded Cherokee. Thomas Jr. and Callie had a son, Daniel Webster Jenkins, born in Bryson City, on 2-29-1891, worked for Granville Taylor logging and later lived in Mitchell county, NC. He was married to a Della Ball( or Gaddy). We would love to find any additional infor on any of the above, especially documentation.
