In Reply to: Re: MCMAHAN, TOWNSEND, BUTLER, BIRD, EMERT, SEVIER CO by Catherine Vaughn of 41027

My great-grandfather was T. Howard McMahan (I think it is Tilman Howard McMahan), b. 6 Oct. 1879 in Sevier Co., TN. He married Letha Iva Ogle, b. 18 March 1883 in Sevier Co., TN. They later settled in Lawrence Co., TN.

I am trying to learn more about that branch of my family. I know very little, and the info on Howard McMahan on the site is a little muddy. I think, according to Howard's youngest son, that Howard's father was Rev. George W. McMahan. On the Smokykin site, they show George with 2 sons: Tilman McMahan AND Howard McMahan. But, based on some info I have received of late, I believe that the 2 sons were indeed one son...TILMAN HOWARD McMahan.

T. Howard and Letha Iva's daughter, Lellah McMahan McGee was my maternal grandmother.

If you could help or point me to some one who could I would be very grateful! Feel free to email me if you need to.

Thanks for you time,
Beverly Hicks Ling
