We are a founding family of Tennessee, settling here and before that Long Hunters here, before Tennessee became a state. Our kin were the first to step foot over the Cumberland Gap. We are a mix of peoples and are known as “melungeon”. I will be doing a video series over the next several months with numerous videos per week based on the high demand of interest and questions about these ancestral lines here in East Tennessee.
Here is our first video of this series. I hope you enjoy it and remember to subscribe to our youtube channel and press like. It helps so that our videos will be seen by a larger audience. And, we believe this history is important to get out. Many of us are far more diverse that we think we are and it is a beautiful thing!!
