Hamilton County Tennessee Court Case

Janet Crain, over at the Melungeon List said that there was a court case that reveals the surnames of suspected Melungeon families/surnames. You got to check this one out.

Janet said that the surnames mentioned are, the Goins, Shumake, Boltons, Perkins, Mornings, Menleys, Breedlove, Shepherd and many more.

These families are alleged to have come from the Pee Dee River area, crossed over the mountains to now what is called Hancock County, Tennessee. From Hancock County these families migrated to many other areas.

Thank you Janet for the all the work that you do!
