Trim/m family-TN

Supposedly, my grandmother's grandfather left PA for TN. Hemnigar Liston Trimm was his supposed name and his wife's, Alva Ann. He was puported to be a minister for the Church of God, but from a wealthy family in Phila. They had ten children:

Ethyl
Liston Leotas
Ora (poss. marr: Mr. Reynolds)
Jesse James
Virgie (male, I think)
Fletcher "Flatunidous"
Tabor "Thurletuludous"
Ricie Rosetta (poss. marr: Mr. Jim McGill)
Icie Izette
Kramer Kirkland (27 Mar 1893-11 Dec 1955)

Odd names, I know, and I can only vouch for the absolute veracity of Kramer, her father. He was supposedly the youngest. Kramer was born and died in Cleveland, TN (my hometown) so I assume that's where Hemnigar settled with his brood. I would appreciate any help or leads with this and would be glad to share what information I've already gotten.
