I checked my Sevier Family History, & guess what? Gen. John Sevler's
daughter Nancy Sevier married Walter King, born 1764in Va. & married
1830, Roane County, Tennessee. There are 7 or a=8 pages of King- Sevier
descendants- several in Erath County by name of King. Wylys were
descended from Elizabeth Sevier, sister of Nancy.
A son of the bove, Austin Augustus King was a Tennessee attorney and
moved to Missouri, served in the House 2 terms, and was Governor
1848-1852. He was the Judge who presided over the trials of the Mormon
leaders in Missouri. His son William Augustus King moved to Stephenville,
Texas He m. a Pence, 1872. Mo. & divorced 1875 & came to Texas. M.Mrs.
Kate Danley Clark , Stephenville, Texas. She died 1909, Stephenville.One
daughter Daisy Dean King born on Spotted Fawn Ranch, Erath County.Son
edward married a Cochran in Cleburne, Texas.Thomas Benton King also came
to Stephenville,1873 born. Taught school, farmed, practiced law and was
County judge. 10 kids & 4 grandkids are listed.
7 th Gen from V. Sevier was Carol Austin King m. Nell Bailey- 3 kids. All
living in 1960's.
6 th- G. Bingham King m. Florence Morris.
3 more pages, most with Stephenville, Texas.
ever wonder where King's Mountain , N.C. got it's name?
If I am on right track, you need a /sevier Family History- might get
scanner to working . Book is copyrighted. Saw the author at a Sevier
Reunion- 3 days of history and viusits- is Sevierville, Tenn. 1988.
