This collection is a genealogy report on the first three generations of the Sevier Family of Virginia and Tennessee.
This collection contains genealogical information about the first three generations of the Sevier family. The Seviers are one of the oldest and most well-known families in Tennessee, due in part to the notoriety of John Sevier, a member of the second generation of the family.
John Sevier was born in Virginia on September 23, 1745 to Valentine and Joanna (Goad) Sevier. John was a pioneer, soldier, statesman, and the only governor of the State of Franklin. He fought in the American Revolution, was a representative for the Southwest Territory, and served governor of Tennessee six times. He died September 29, 1815 while serving as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
This collection is in one folder.
