I'm familiar with the Bottom family. However, I'm not related. I thought this might help though. My ancestors, the Mitchells and Evans, came from Brunswick Co., VA. They were neighbors of the Bottoms' famly on the Giles Co., TN side. Most of the VA people in the area are from Brunswick, Surry and Mecklenburg Counties of VA.

Mitchell family lore states that Marcus Mitchell came to Giles Co., TN and got rich. He returned to Brunswick Co., VA and told everyone of the beauty and opportunities of Giles Co., TN. Soon after many of the family and neighbors packed up and came to TN.

I hope this helps.
