Re: Origin of Like surname

In Reply to: Re: Origin of Like surname by Ron Williams of 135

My husband descends from Jonas Likens (also listed as James), born ca 1815 in VA. He married Serena Jennings in 1835 in Rhea County, TN. He was listed on the 1836 tax list of Hamilton County, TN. He moved to White County, TN before the 1850 census, then to Jackson County, Tn before 1870 then to Clay County, Tn by 1880. These Likens were listed as Lackins on several census as well as marriage records. I have been told that this part of Tennessee lack is pronounced as like. David and Elizabeth Like has been listed as Jonas/James parents, but I have found absolutely no proof of this. I would appreciate any help.
