Plural marriage in Cocke County
January 15, 2012 03:00PM
Am researching the Sentell/Rollins family in 1860s Cocke County TN. Joe Rollins is my gr-grandfather, and my mother (his granddaughter) always claimed that Rollins was Mormon and that my gr-grandmother, Lilly Sentell, was one of his five wives. I believe that she may have followed him from Henderson Co. NC to TN. His legal wife was Lucinda LNU). They are all buried adjacent to one another in Russell McGaha Cemetery, Cosby, TN. Am seeking some verification and information on plural marriage in 1860's Tennessee. Would there be some church record of sealing and sister wives back that far? Any information is helpful.
