Publication History

This work was originally published in 1969. It was subsequently reissued in 1978, with an extensive addendum that added additional families, and corrected errors in the first edition.


This work deals with families who settled at an early date in Blount County, TN. It includes their "connection" in other parts of TN, and in particular in Greene County. A significant component of this work is that it includes the family history of "The Walker Sisters", of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The Walker Sisters were descendants of Meadow Creek John Walker. His descendants settled in Tuckaleechee Cove, and from their spread into the Smokey Mountains where they lived until the formation of the National Park. The Walker Sisters, however, refused to leave their home, and continued to live there until their death, many years later. Louisa, the last of the Walker sisters, died in 1964.
