I have Passmore in my backgound in the area you are looking, located in western NC. You probably already found a posting of the Passmore tree someone else assembled, but I will attach the top portion as I adjusted it (I found my ancestor misassigned to the wrong parent). If you wish an email, I can attach my on-line references for this adjustment. The 'AA' in the list shows where I inserted LATISHA PASSMORE. I also have an 1877 photo of Lou Tishia Passmore (Nelson) and her daughter Tempa Nelson saved on the computer - I could email attachment. I kinda consider this a tenuous famiily tree - not confident of absolute proof under rigorous invesigation. Jim Stepp
