States: Tennessee: Hawkins
I am looking for information on Chief Bledsoe, born in the area of what is now Hawkins County in 1762 also information on his daughter Princess Tillie Bledsoe born 1788. She died in Hawkins county in 1846. She was my great(4 times) grandmother. Her son, Morgan moved to what is now Benton County Mo. I am not sure that they were Indians or not. People played around with names and spelling of names in those days. For example Tillie.s husband had Stuart as a sur name. Some times John C. Stuart and other times John Stewart. Titles such as Chief and Princess may well have been nicknames.
