Smoky Mountain Historical Society
In February 2019 we merged 4 large, independent databases into one. This resulted in over 1,300,000 names available for you to search.

Due to merging these independent databases, you may find the same individual listed more than once. The source of the record is listed to the right of with each name record. You will need to pick which record you use when it appears that an individual name has been repeated.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. Work on three of the independent databases is still being done. As additional information is obtained our consolidated database here will be frequently updated. If you find what you believe are errors or would like to provide additional information, please contact our Genealogist/Webmaster, Jim Everhart.

The key to using this database is to note the creators ID on the far right side as below:
Our ResearchTree is the work of Jim Everhart  under Jim Everhart and Larry Fox's active research under Larry Fox and
Randy Phillips is Randy Phillips active work
John Beckwith is John's last known work at the time he died.
There are several times these will overlap. Compare what they show. This site tries to verify any conflicting work.  If you have any questions or suggestions for edits please let our genealogist know at
