    • Katina McBride (mcbridepchs@aim.com) emailed on April 7, 2011 that she was "researching the McLemore family history. I was hoping that you can help me by telling me the names of the slaves that this family owned especially while in Tennessee. I believe that Young Atkins or Sugar McLemore owned a relative of mine. Her name was Frances McLemore, she even named her son after Young. His name was Atkins Senter. Frances married John Senter. I found out that the Senters are part of the Fly family. All these family are connected: Fly, Senter, McLemore and they all owned slaves. Any information provided would be greatly appreciated." Please feel free to email Katina her directly if you can pass along any information about these families.

      In 2014, Martha Hunt emailed the following information in response to Katina's query a few years earlier:

      Hello Katrina,
      I read your request on the Strong/McLemore website asking for information about slaves that were owned by members of the McLemore family in Tennessee.  I do not have any specific information about them.  I suggest that you look at wills, slave purchase and emancipation records, the 1870 federal census (they might still have been living next door to or in the house with the McLemores).  Look at  the slave record of marriages (co-habitation records taken in 1866-670).  Look also for the death certificates and marriage application forms where names of fathers were listed. 

      The McLemores that you were asking about came from Granville, Warren and Franklin Counties in N.C.  They moved to Tennessee in the early 1800's after Tennessee was cut off from N.C. and became a state.   Atkins McLemore, Sr. had a large blacksmith's shop in Franklin County, NC, a foundry, where he was paid to make guns and ammunition during the Revolutionary War.  He died in Warren County, NC around 1792.  His will distributes slaves to his children.
      Some of Atkin McLemore's children, especially my 4th great grandfather - Abraham McLemore, moved their households to Tennessee.  Following is a list from the will of Atkins McLemore.

      Son,  Abraham received 4 Negroes - Frank, Sarah, Hannah and Judey. 

      Abraham, Abigail, Young and Robert Mclemore moved to TN.  Abraham lived in Gibson Co.,TN.  His sons Sugars and Young Atkins moved to Tennessee also. They purchased slaves, And the women who they married had slaves.

      I hope this will be of some help in tracing your ancestry.
