McCracken family information sought for book

Apr 13, 2017

Billy McCracken, president of the local McCracken family reunion in Crabtree, is currently working on a reprint/second edition of the “McCracken Ancestry Book,” originally published and sold in 1991.

The McCrackens were among the first settlers of Haywood County in the early 18th century, descending from the original patriarch and matriarch of the family, Joseph and Sarah Vaughn McCracken.

Most of the remaining local McCrackens are direct descendents of the 13 children of this pioneering couple, and are encouraged to participate in this information collection effort.

Submit information relating to births and deaths and typos, since 1991, from the particular family line from the original book.

Send information to and reserve a copy for $50 per book.
