Our Genealogy Helper for Hinds Creek ...

So far, we have found very little information about Hinds Creek. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Hinds Creek to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Hinds Creek, please Contact Us.

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community in which our ancestors lived, the community that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Hinds Creek (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us an insight into their world.

As we add data and organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Hinds Creek. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.

Name Variations for Hinds Creek ...

When searching records, keep in mind that names and their spelling can change over time. Various errors happen - anything from simple spelling to bad translations or people who just guessed at the name. Sometimes the post office had a slightly different name than the community and while one document might refer to the community name, the next might use the post office name.

Although we can't give a definitive list, hopefully the following will give a you a feel for the variations that might have occurred with Hinds Creek.

  • Typical abbreviation for Hinds Creek: Hinds Crk. (or less commonly used: Hinds Ck. or Hinds Cr.)
  • While the name of this community is Hinds Creek, be aware that it's the common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Hinds Creek may originally have been Hind's Creek.
  • Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Hinds Creek might be written as Hind Creek.

Neighboring Counties ...

When searching for family records, we have frequently made the mistake of not checking the neighboring counties.

For example, we have great-grandparents who lived in the northeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors were in the next county to the east. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

So when searching for records, we had our best success by looking in neighboring counties instead of the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the east contained birth and death records; the county to the north contained their burial records. If we hadn't included the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

If you're in a similar situation, we hope that the following information helps.

Although our information shows that the community of Hinds Creek is historic, it would have been located within present day Anderson County.

The following counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Anderson County: Campbell, Knox, Loudon, Morgan, Roane, Scott & Union.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Hinds Creek, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Hinds Creek) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hinds Creek. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.1381, Longitude: -84.0899     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Hinds Creek have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
