The Sevier Family Association began in 1957 as a way for descendants of Valentine "The Immigrant" Sevier and Joanna Goad to come together in order to honor and remember the contributions and sacrifices of their shared ancestors. Valentine Sevier "The Immigrant" 1712-1803 and his family played a major role in the Watauga association and the early settlement of Tennessee. He and his wife Joanna Goad were parents of Gen. John Sevier, Col. Valentine Sevier, Capt. Robert Sevier, Mary Rutherford, Cathrine Matlock, Abraham and Joseph Sevier.
