Giffin family of Knox Co TN
Posted by: jc (ID *****5058) Date: May 18, 2007 at 19:19:34
  of 487

I did a lookup for a researcher who is researching his Coleman line out of VA.

He stated the Coleman's are related to the Giffin's in the Knox Co.,Tn. areas.

He was trying to find the father of Columbus J. Giffin b-1856, Knox Co. TN Census in 1880 which shows him residing with his Coleman cousin Tom. Anna Wade/Walker b-1801 was shown as grandmother and head of house.

There is also a second Columbus Giffin b-1868 believed to be his nephew? This Columbus married Anna E. Kennedy in 1 July 1888.
Might you have any clarification on these two Giffins?

Note: I hope this is helpful for researchers looking for family in Knox Co TN.
