The East Families of the Southeast USA

Search this Site with PicoSearch

Pico searches only these web sites. Wild Cards are not accepeted, so a search for Sm?th will not find Smith nor Smyth. Names are generally in the First Middle Family name format, so an Exact Search for Smith, John will not find John Smith.







        As you look thru most of the East biographies, there will be codes after the names [in braces]. Those are ID num-bers, in order to keep the many people with same names from being confused with others.

        Also, the letters and numbers in (parentheses) following a biography are source codes. To see where the informa-tion came from, go to the Source Code file. If you see an asterisk just above the listed children, that means I have not yet placed them alphabetically. It also usually means I don't have much info for them.

        When searching for a person in alphabetical order, you may know his full name, while I do not; if you cannot find your person alphabetically, try searching for his name without the middle name or initial, or try searching by the middle name used as the first name. Example: If you are looking for William C Pinckney East, I may have him as William P East, or as William East, or as Pink East.
If two people have the same name, then the elder one should be listed first.

        If you see a name in Red Text, that is an indication that there is a link for additional information. Go back to this Home Page and see the list of Links below. Usually links are bits of info about in-laws, a gravestone picture, a marriage record, or a short history of the area, etc. And if you see a name in Blue Text at the start of a biography, that person's info was recently updated. Most pictures of people are from 1930 or before, and more will be added as time and availability permit.

East Families of Giles
County Tennessee

There were Two different East Families who settled in Giles Co TN by 1830; one was from Henry Co VA and the other from Laurens Co SC. They have been extracted from the much larger East Families of the Southeast USA files, and are partially in separate files. The Henry Co VA branch who settled in Giles Co moved to Wayne Co TN, then to Hardin Co and other TN Counties. And the Laurens Co SC branch moved from Giles Co to AR and MO.
The above Sarah Graves East Bible pertains to the Henry Co VA branch.
Joel Pace
Mary East, born 1764 in Pittsylvania Co VA married Joel Pace and they moved to central KY, then to Jefferson Co IL in 1820. Her biography is contained here, and she and her descendants are also included in the much larger main East files.































In most of these East Files there are Link Signals; some Names in Red Ink will indicate that there is related information. Most are short biographies of in-laws or related matters. Go back to this Main Page to see these links, shown here.
