Yes, thank you for posting. Many would not venture into the Wilderness for fear of their lives before 1795. Though that area of NE most part of TN was at one time considered to be NC. The roads were not being well established until later on and in 1783 the earlier settlement in middle TN prompted the establishment of Davidson Co. TN. But the Indian reservation was in the southeastern portion of what became TN later on. The counties of GREENE, DAVIDSON, Sullivan and Washington Co's were already established by 1783. But by 1786 we see that HAWKINS Co. TN was made from part of Greene Co. in the NE section of that part of GREENE CO. which encorportated the section in middle TN as well in 1783.
Henry Dunehew in our line is listed by some researchers as having been Cherokee but we have no proof other than the listings of earlier researchers. I understand also that there are a number of HENRY DUNEHEWS / DONAHOO's etc.
