His grandparents were Natharltel and Margaret Mirah B¥chanan Deitz and Manson and·Brunetta Cochran (Cockerham) Wilson. The Deitz, Buchanan, Wilson, and Cockerham tamilies were pioneer settlers in the. Savannah area of Jackson County. . . I. ... , Early Deitz had three brothers: John Burch, William Richmond, and Samuel Welch. There were five sisters: Ida D. Buchanaq (Mrs. John w.); Lula D. Buchanan (Mrs. Tolvin); Lillie D. Cabe (M;'~· Jim) 1 Nora Lee D. Cowan (Mrs' Thad); and Alice D. cowan (Mrs. Cicero). All of these brothe;s and sisters remained in the Jackson County are~ except Nora Le~, who li~es in Sedro Woolley, Washl~gton • • Ear~y Deitz married Gladys Beatrice Herriqg, and they had three children: James Monroe Deitz, Maria~. Slud~r ~Hall (Mrs. Harold,, Jr.·), and Eunice Deitz Nicholson (Mrs. Paul B.). Here are some comments from ~a~~y: "Few people attended much sc~ool. I was luckier than many at th~t time. I ,went· eight years to East Fork School, then I went to Viewpoint and lacked about. a mont)l f ini.shing 9th grade. Then I boarded and was enrolled at Sylva Collegiate Institute for one semester. I attended East Fork Baptist Church most of my life • . "Not much cash was. available during .my early days, but my parents had several acres of land~ The home where I was born was torn down in later years. Our secorld'home built by my father still sta~s on Bpst Fork. "The main transportation was walking. I wo;-~ed pn the farm, blacksmith for East Fork Mica Mine, and for Marson-Knutson Construction (Glenville Dam site); Newport New~, v,., shipy~rd (carpenter); Camp Davis, Holly Ridge near Wilmington. (carpenter); Oa~~idge, TN (carpenter); Utah construction Co. (when railroad was chaqged fQr Fontana Dam) in Almond. I was a st~te prt.on guard at Whittier and finished my years of employment as a ~arpenter in the sign shop of the.N. c. Dept. of-Transportation. I retired at 65. Today., I etill garden, make walking canes and ox yokes, and read for hobbies." Another activity Early enjoys is visiting cemeteries. He has> a vast knowledge of the cemeteries in the Savannah area and was instrumental in'placing a marker for his great-great-grandparents,. Richard an~Rachel Strain Wilson, at an old cemetery located just south of East Fork Road. Interviewed by Daniel w. Deitz (nephew), May 27, 1~1. 91-15 1902 Voter Registration for Jackson COunty The 1902 Permanent Voter Registration was a grandfather clause legislation. It required eligible voters (white males) to name an ancestor who had been eligible to vote in 1867. Aside from the obvious racist intent, the voter books are valuable tools for genealogical research. The book is located in the county Register of Deeds Office.

I. got your letter by G. w. Dills. I was glad to hear that you were all well. I will keep G. w. here 8 or 10 days till I get answer from the 25th Reg. if possible. If I cannot make some arrangements for to keep him here I will send him on & when I get someone to take his place I will take him on down & make an exchange if I can. I will do the best I can. I fear I can not make a swap at this time without keeping here too long. You will send G. w. his transportation by A. J. Dills. It is in the pocketbook that Mother has got. Send it without fail. See that my family is provided for. Keep them around. See that their corn is taken care of, for if she gets out of corn next summer, it will be a bad case. See Leander Green. He is coming home on furlough and see if he will let me have 3 or 4 bushels of rye. If he won't take money for it, swap him corn. I will furnish money to buy the corn. He has promised me to swap it or sell it to me. Sow it at the Reynolds place and cut it and pay yourself out of it. Write to me soon. The boys are well. Good by.
