    1. [KING-TN] David KING in NC and TN
    2. George W. Durman
    3. Hello L. U.: My wife's mother was a KING. The farthest back we have been able to trace her line is to a William B. KING; b.1776, in NC; m.Elizabeth RHEA, abt.1808, in NC. We have only one child for William and Elizabeth, Andrew "Andy" KING, my wife's g-g-grandfather. Sure wish we could find out more about her KING ancestry too. Our KING families of NC ended up, first, in Blount and Sevier Counties of TN, then spread out, it seems, to Knox, Monroe, Loudon, and other Counties. There are several KING families in the early days of Washington and Greene Counties, but we've never been able to connect to them. We have a David, but he was the son of Andrew "Andy" KING and Elizabeth HENDERSON. David was born abt 1845, so would have been too late for your David. Andrew and Elizabeth had one other child that we know of, Elisha "Lish" KING, who is my wife's g-grandfather. Please keep in touch. Who knows! Maybe we'll tie all those NC KING families together some day. Regards, George At 17-04-07 02:48 PM Tuesday, L U Weston wrote: *********START OF ORIGINAL MESSAGE TEXT********* >King Query > >1.
