    Notes

    CONFLICTS on ancestry.com trees shows different wives names viewed May 2005 therefore I have added a small amount of data from . . . personal research of Snyder E. Roberts http://www.roanetn.com/frost.htm.

    "Thomas Frost's Bible, listing his children and date of births by first wife, was handed down to Docia Ruffner Halburnt, and has been contributed to McClung Collection in Knoxville, TN.

    i. THOMAS FROST, SR., b. Abt 1735, VA; d. 1807, Anderson Co. TN; m. (1) SARAH ?; m. (2) UNKNOWN; m. (3) MARTHA NEVIL, 1799, Knox Co, TN."

    "The ancestry of Thomas Frost is not proven, however, strong evidence concerning land transactions indicate that Joseph Frost, one of the first property owners in Amherst county Virginia, is the father our Thomas Frost. Revolutionary soldier, Joseph Frost states he visited his brother in Bedford Co., VA. Since the only Frost's living in Bedford Co. during this time were brothers Thomas and John, the supposition is that Joseph Jr. is a brother of Thomas and John. Thomas signed documents with a distinctive combination of the letter "T" and "F" rather than the normal "X" that iliterate individuals of the time would make. This distinctive mark has been of great benefit in confirming his migration and holdings in various documents in the archives.

    The Frost Clan were among the first to colonize Washington County, VA. Sons Micajah and Joseph had been in the Indian Wars defending the lands from which this county was formed. They moved from Bedford to their new home high in the Allegheny Mountains in Washington County in 1776. Thomas was just an ordinary pioneering frontiersman gradually increasing his land holdings. His brother John was ordained a minister and became a leader in the historic Holston Baptist Convention, the forerunner of the Baptist Convention in Tennessee. In 1795 Thomas Frost became the first known permanent settler of Anderson County TN settling in Racoon Valley. His brother John joined him by 1797 and established the first Baptist church in Anderson County, Chestnut Ridge Baptist Church, which later became Zion Baptist Church."

    The first known white settler in Anderson county, Tennessee. Neighbor to Robert Samuel Brasher.

    FROST BOTTOM COUNTRY

    THE TULSA TRIBUNE, Tulsa, OK
    Spring, 19(?)

    by George Vecsey, NY Times Service

    FROST BOTTOM, Tenn. -

    High on the cemetery overlooking Poplar Creek, there is no doubt who are the blessed ones.

    They are the generations of Frosts and Browns and Duncans and Seebers lying under the cover of bright flowers, already gone to meet the Lord. . . .

    Some of that weekend traffic was headed for Frost Bottom, which is not a town, but an area, flowing below long and spiny Walden's Ridge, to the base of massive Cumberland Mountain.

    The region was named for a family named Frost that came over the mountains from North Carolina around 1800. (Errata, they came from Washington Co., Virginia.) Their 12-year-old daughter named Nancy drowned in Poplar Creek in 1809 and her weathered tombstone is the oldest in the cemetery.

    (Heretofore, I thought the term "Frost Bottom" referred to the amply endowed women of the Frost Family, as many a jibe was sent our way over the years regarding the size of the territory!)

    In August, 1795, Thomas Frost bought from the land speculator, Stockley Donelson, 640 acres of land located in Raccoon Valley, Knox County (Later Anderson County). This conveyance is recorded in Knox County Deed Book "C," Page 244. He built a log house which is generally believed to be the first house of record erected in present Anderson County. The house was located on the present Edgemoor Road near the Guy Jones home. Dr. Ira Chiles, a retired University of Tennessee Professor and a descendant of Thomas Frost, has in his possession a small photograph of the house, and an oil painting of the home by a well-known artist, which is framed with wood taken from the old house. This settlement in Raccoon Valley by Thomas Frost would have complied with the terms of Indian agreements in effect at that date, and would have been a reasonably safe location.

    THE FROST FAMILIES

    References to THOMAS FROST and his brother, REVEREND JOHN FROST, may be found in Amherst and Bedford counties, Virginia, as early as 1765. In 1776, they moved to Washington County, Virginia, and settled near Moccasin Gap. Reverend John was licensed to preach in 1780. The Frosts moved across the line and settled on the North Fork of the Holston River where the Frost Baptist Church was erected. Reverend John was the representative from this Church to the historic organization of the Holston Baptist Association at Cherokee Meeting House on the fourth Saturday in October, 1786, which marked the beginning of Baptist Associations in present Tennessee. He was a messenger from his church to the Holston Association for the years 1787 through 1795. Thomas Frost was, also, a messenger from the North Fork of the Holston Baptist Church for the years 1789, 1791 and 1794.

    As seen by the deed, Thomas Frost and family had relocated to present Anderson County in 1795. His brother, the Reverend John, soon followed. By 1797 the Frost clan and others had erected Chestnut Ridge Baptist Church, the first associational Baptist Church in present Anderson County. Reverend John was a messenger from the Chestnut Ridge Church to the Association for the years 1797, 1798, 1800 and 1807. Reverend John Frost removed to Cumberland County, Kentucky, where he engaged in the ministry for that area.

    In 1795 two of Thomas Frost' s sons, Elijah and Micajah, bought (Book D, page 108) 1000 acres of land from Stockley Donelson located in present Frost Bottom. However, Micajah is shown in the Anderson County 1802 Tax list as still living in Raccoon Valley on 225 acres of land possibly because of the Indian title question. Micajah, born in 1764, was a Revolutionary War soldier, and Frost Bottom was named for him. . . .

    (8) John Lewis "Jack" Frost :

    The Find A Grave memorial notes that he [Thomas Frost, Sr.] is buried in the Peoples Cemetery, Edgemore [Edgemoor], TN. Two things I would like to contribute. The Peoples Cemetery is actually on Edgemore [Edgemoor] Road in Clinton, TN. The grave marker that is posted on Find A Grave is actually a commemorative marker set up by the First Family of Tennessee organization. I checked with the City of Clinton when we were there last year and the office that maintains the cemeteries stated that the grave site of Thomas is not exactly known, it is just factually assumed to be in Peoples. The land that the cemetery is on (and about half the city of Clinton) sit on the old Frost homestead where Thomas and family settled in Anderson County as one of the first white settlers in Tennessee.

    Thomas married Sarah Nancy HARMON on 4 Jul 1757 in Bedford County, VA. Sarah was born about 1736 in Bedford County, VA; died before 1776 in Bedford County, VA. [Group Sheet]

    Joseph FROST Sr.

    ABT 1710 - ____ . . .

    • RESIDENCE: Amherst and Bedford Co. VA
    • BIRTH: ABT 1710, Amherst or Bedford Co. Virginia . . .

    "Family tradition from several branches of the family relate that two Frost brothers migrated to America from Wales. This has yet to be documented. There were several Frosts in New England before 1700 and four different Frosts in Virginia in the 1600's (John, Thomas, William and Edward). No will or probate records have been found of Joseph Frost Sr. to document his heirs. Thomas Frost sold lands belonging to Jospeh [sic] Frost (Sr.) indicating that Joseph was probably Thomas's father and Thomas was settling the estate of his father. These lands were surveyed for Joseph in 1763 and 1765 totaling 220 acres adjoining each other. Our Frost family may have been one of the early settlers of Jamestown, the first permanent settlement in America 1609."

    [Note by compiler: This source falsely claims that the parents of Joseph FROST, Sr. were Wright FROST and Mary UNDERHILL. Wright FROST and Mary UNDERHILL did have a son named Joseph FROST, but that son was not the same person as the Joseph FROST, Sr. of Amherst County, VA. The Joseph FROST who was a son of Wright FROST and Mary UNDERHILL was born 14 March 1713/14, died 14 January 1774 in Cortlandt, Westchester County, NY, and is listed elsewhere in this database. That Joseph FROST, who married Mary COCK, left a will dated 15 October 1773, proved 10 February 1774, naming his sons, Wright, Michael, Caleb and Jacob; and his daughters, Elizabeth, Hannah, Sarah and Anne.]
