Aunt Sissie's "Cousin's in Common" Homepage

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle." Plato

Mandolin Rain by Bruce Hornsby

Welcome to my website. My name is Carolyn Whitaker and I'm better known to my kin as "Aunt Sissie". My original site was

taken down by AOL, so I'm in the process of revamping my old pages.

Wonder why I call it "Cousin's in Common"? Well, my mother's grandfather's second cousin married my father's great aunt!

And that's the TRUTH.

C O N F U S E D Y E T? No worries, I still am!!!

I'm a Tennessean by blood.....

my maternal and paternal great grandparents were both born in Cocke County, Tennessee. Some of my surnames include

Mom's side THOMPSON,CLICK, GRAY, BRIM, MANLEY, CAMPBELL, YOWELL, GLAZE, SHREVE,

MCLAUGHLIN

Dad's side WHITAKER, BALCH, FAUBION, AYERS, RECTOR, FISHBACK, HUDSON, EDGEMON,

HUNSUCKER, SCHMIDT, MOUSER, WHITE, VAUGHN.

Some were early settlers in Washington, Greene, Cocke & Monroe counties, Tennessee.

Most migrating from Philadelphia through the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Others from the first and second GERMANNA settlements

of 1714 & 1718 from Spotsylvania, Virginia.

These families traveled the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road and Wilderness Roads to North Carolina and Tennessee.

Many of my families were of German origin or French Huguenots.

My ancestors settled on the first Western Frontier of America & they were among the first families of Tennessee.

They were settlers during the time Tennessee was involved in being the "State of Franklin". If you don't know your history,

visit this link and any of East Tennessee counties & you'll quickly learn about it. They settled on the land of the Cherokee Indian hunting grounds.

WHAT ABOUT BENEDICT ARNOLD? Read a history of one of the largest land scams of our Nation. You will be amazed of how we have been led to believe so many lies of our written histories that have been taught to us for years, but the records show a much different picture.
