The Judge David Campbell Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution donated the two Volume anthology, "Legacies of Our Great Grand-Mothers – Early Tennessee Women" to the Orena Humphries Library in Whitwell, Tn. Each Tennessee State Regent has a project that promotes the objects of the Society, education, historic preservation, and patriotic citizenship. The current State Regent Susan Thomas chose a historic preservation project to remember the women who carved out a new frontier in Tennessee.

The biographies in "Legacies of Our Great Grand-Mothers – Early Tennessee Women" focus on women who lived in Tennessee prior to 1850. The women featured covered all socio- and economic-backgrounds, ranging from essays about farmers’ wives to those of politicians. Each narrative sketch was composed by a Tennessee Daughter and is documented with references and existing lineage charts of birth, marriage, death, and burial, her parents, her siblings, her husband(s), his parents, his siblings, and their children with source citations footnoted throughout the book.

“The women who populate this book lived in interesting times and led interesting lives – lives that are worthy of our remembrance,” officials said. "This book will be of special interest to researchers of early Tennessee families and history."

The book is available at libraries throughout Tennessee. To obtain a copy for your personal library, go to their website at srpbook@tndar.org.

I’ll use “hell” as an exclamation point sometimes and I also may quote an aggressor in a story where he threatens to whip another’s “ass.” But our President reached an all-time ... (click for more)
