Which Savage Family are you talking about. There are 3 different SAVAGE families that I know about, Maine, North Carolina and Tennessee. I have been researching SAVAGE for about 50 years and haven't found a connection between these families.
I'm new to this site too. I'm also from the Tennessee and Illinois Savage's. My GG-Grandfather was Levin Savage, G-Grandfather was Alexander O'Banyon Savage and Grandfather Henry Bowen Savage. My Dad was Hubert Ivan Savage
