S May, 1993 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE I would like to take this opportunity to lay a little praise on some people. Lloyd Cowan has done a good job on the Heritage book. Of course now Lloyd has, at some time or other, had a d o g lost on every creek in the county. He knows all the families and wrote the history for many of them. Now he feels obligated to see that all people get the book. He has spent several hours with me at the Campbell building and I was always glad to have him, but he has taken the books out to the people. He has done a good job with this and we can't thank him enough. Gene McClure is another good worker. I once had a man ask me if I knew everybody in the county a n d I told him, "No, but I'm working on it." Gene is already there; he knows them all. I enjoyed spending some time with him on Saturday a n d really enjoyed the time off h e gave me to come home and cut grass. He was not happy with the way things were going, so he bought three books a s h e left. He said his stock was getting low. Whatever the reason, we are happy to be a part of any organization with people like Gene. Thank you, Gene, for being loyal to the Jackson County Genealogical Society. The last meeting was moved to the Ramsey Center due to a conflict. It was a good meeting with Roy a n d Ruth Shuler showing slides of their trip to Germany. We expected a good presentation by them and we were certainly not disappointed. I'm not sure, but it seemed to me that they spent a limited time looking for ancestors. Looking at the slides, we could s ee that they were having fun and w e a r e very happy for them. Roy put on an outfit that he brought home from Germany and h e looked pretty good. The membership was pleased with their presentation and had many questions for them. They answered them alL and I say again, the best programs come from our own membership. Thank you, Roy and Ruth, for an interesting program. I would like to remind you of the workshop scheduled for the latter part of May. You should , have received notice by mail. I did get one and have put it away so good I can't find it now. Attend if you are able; I will not be able to attend. Round up all of those pictures that you can't identify and were about ready to throw away. July 8 is the date we bring them all together to Cullowhee and see if any of them are long-forgotten relatives. Let's not forget about the books. We can get them into people's homes where they c a n enjoy them. I am firmly convinced that we would be out of books if everyone who wanted one after they were all gone would come now and get one. Help Lloyd and Gene get these books out. Here's hoping that your searches for your ancestry a r e fruitful. When you look in Walhalla and Clayton and come up short, g o back to the courthouse in Sylva and look again.

The iainily discussed is an interesting one, and we present the article here for your information and possibly to assist \ ^ someone searching for ancestors in the Quallatown area.) Ulrick Keener (born ca. 1808 Washington Co. TN, died 13Aug 1856 Jackson Co. NC) removed with his family from Washington County to Buncombe County, NC. Rev. Keener was married in 1829 to Sarah Duckets (bom 1812 Sandy Mush, Buncombe Co. NC, died 1905 Jackson County NC), the daughter of Thomas Duckett. Ulrick was admitted to the Holston Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church-South in 1825 and first served as assistant to William Patton at Abingdon VA. Other appointments were: 1826, Sulphur Springs VA; 1827, Blountville TN; 1828, Franklin NC; 1829, French Broad NC. He relocated in 1830 to Macon County to-teach school and farm, but then moved to Asheville to farm property owned by his wife. However, he was readmitted to the Holston Conference of the Methodist Church in 1845 and continued as a traveling preacher. There were few church buildings in those pioneer days, but preachers held meetings in school houses and private homes while traveling their circuits. He was appointed to the Henderson Circuit in 1848 and 1846; to Waynesville Circuit and Echota Mission in 1847 and 1848 with a dual charge; and to Catawba Circuit in 1849. From 1850 to the time of his death in 1855 he had charge of the Echota Mission. The people of this charge were largely Cherokee Indians. Tradition points to Rev. Keener as the first Methodist itinerant in the Tuckaseegee Valley. The mission church located in the Soco Comrnunity at Cherokee, known today as the First United Methodist Church, was originally named the Keener Mission Church in his honor. Rev. Ulrick Keener had a good English education and he was an extensive reader. He left behind a considerable library of standard books, especially on the subject of theology. As a speaker, he was at the same fluent and eloquent. A staunch defender of the doctrines of his church, he also had a talent for music, with a fine voice. Rev. Keener's health began failing in 1855, and his son-in-law, Capt. Terrell moved the Keener family into his house on his Quallatown farm. Terrell gave Keener and his boys the use of the land they could cultivate. There Rev. Ulrick Keener died and was the first person buried in the Campground Cemetery at Quallatown. His wife Sarah would follow him there, some 46 years later. Sarah Duckets Keener was no ordinary woman. Although a modest and delicate woman, she also possessed the energy and resolution of a man. Her management of business affairs was excellent. She sold her Buncombe County farm, bought a better one in Jackson County for l e s s money, paid some debts incurred by the long sickness of her husband, and with the help of her little boys supported her family. At the death of her daughter, Mrs. Terrell, she became mother to the four motherless children. In addition to other activities, Mrs. Keener was a nurse in time of sickness. In a typhoid epidemic a physician of the community said that he largely owed his success in treating his patients to the careful and intelligent nursing of Mrs: Keener. v ^" \ y •93-46 o Ulrick Keener Family (continued) f The incomplete issue of Rev.
