The journal issues in this digital collection are presented as annual compilations.
  • c c J o u r n e y s T h r o u g h J a c k s o n The Official Journal of the Jackson County Genealogical Society, Inc. Vol. IV, No. 11-12 November-December, 1994 c President's Message Well, folks, the time has come to sit down and write my last letter. I can truthfully say that I have enjoyed the two years that I have served as your president. I only missed two regular meetings in that period of time, and I'm right proud of myself for that. I am thankful for good health and for the cooperation of all the members of our Society. I can say truthfully that I have not asked any member to do something and been told no. This has meant so much to me. We missed our Thanksgiving note due to no publication in November, so let's take this time to be thankful. Riches come in many different kinds. There is so much thought today of the joy of having wealth, a nice home, a new car every year, lots of money in the bank, and enough investments to keep up several generations. I am so thankful to have been born above the road in Cullowhee, grew up and was educated there, and until my service in the Air Corps, I have never lived anywhere but Jackson County. It is my hope that I am able to spend the rest of my days with the people around here that have meant so much to me. Just call me a redneck, that's my heritage and I'm proud to be the way I am. That's enough about Thanksgiving; let's get on with the Christmas rush. We have been pretty busy here with all of our regular chores, and then my great-grandson Kristopher had a little surgery two weeks ago. He's only five, but he was a veteran when it comes to getting a little special treatment I gave him some extra lap time and was told on occasion that kids who had surgery couldn't eat just anything. He also informed me that the doctor told him he could stay up later at night and could sleep later in the morning. In spite of all this, I have spoken to Santa on his behalf and am sure that he will be happy on Christmas morning. So much for Kristopher. We need to think about peace at this very special time of year. It seems sometimes that all of the world is made and looking for a fight. I am thankful that I can spend this season at home and not on the other side of the world trying to break up rights that keep coming up. Yes, peace is the best way to live. We appreciate it a lot more when we learn of all the suffering and death. It would be so nice if all peoples could be at peace. Along with peace must come forgiveness and for some of us, this comes hard. I was attending a Rotary meeting in Franklin on December 7, Pearl Harbor Day. One of their members recalled meeting _ with the Rotary Club of Tokyo. The President of , the Tokyo club announced, "This is December 7,v— known all over the world as a day of infamy. I would like to remember this as a day to look back on our mistakes of the past and never make them again." This was not the Emperor speaking, but I am encouraged that anyone in Tokyo would make such a statement. We have to be a little forgiving with these kinds of things being said after fifty years. I have said a lot of things about feelings and people and grandson and now I must end your suffering. In closing, I need to thank in a special way Ruth Shuler, Dorris Beck, David Frizzell, and your incoming President, Brian McMahan. You people have made me look good as your president for two years by doing all of the work. I really mean this. Maybe I can write you another letter sometime, but, until then, so long.

Brian McMahan will serve as president; Helen Vance, vice president; Dorris Beck, secretary; David Frizzell, treasurer; and Ruth Shuler, publications chair. A planning meeting for these officers will be scheduled around the first of January, and we invite suggestions from the membership for programs, ideas of projects, and ways to make our Society more responsive to your needs. Please let us hear from you. You will remember that the Robert Lee and Drusilla Holden Award was initiated last year by our members Mary Kathryn Sherrill Robinson and Nancy Sherrill Wilson to honor their grandparents. Work will begin soon by a committee to develop guidelines and procedures for presentation of the first award in August. The award was'begun with a contribution of $1,000 from Mary Kathryn and Nancy, and the Society would be happy to receive other donations to this fund. Two of our members have recently published books dealing with Jackson County. Barbara Dooley's volume, "The 1860 Federal Census of Jackson County" is now available. Barbara compiled this manuscript several years ago while working with the Jackson County Historical Association on The History of Jackson County. Congratulations also to member Jane Nardy for her work on a pictorial history of Cashiers and the surrounding area. While I have not yet seen the book, I understand it is a handsome volume. These books will help to make available more information about Jackson County. An interesting letter comes from member David Stiles: "On October 16, 1994, about thirty descendants of John and Sarah Stiles met at Scott's Creek Baptist Church in Sylva for their annual Stiles reunion. Following a covered-dish lunch, we went to Dills Cemetery to place a bronze marker at the grave of Sarah Stiles. She was born 240 years ago in 1754, and the day after the dedication ceremony was the 176th anniversary of her death on October 17,1818. Sarah's husband John (February 1, 1757 - September 17,1833) was a Revolutionary War veteran who farmed in the Sylva community for over fifty years. On July 22, 1992, we placed a bronze marker at his grave in Dills Cemetery." David is a fourth-great-grandson of John and Sarah Stiles. Our thanks to David and the Stiles family for their efforts in marking these graves for posterity. 123 MANILLA ARIZONA BUCHANAN 21 MARCH 1902 - 27 DECEMBER 1957 (The following information was submitted by Eugene F.

Jo Ann is a member of JCGS and lives in Raleigh NC. Several pages of additional information about the family's life in Macon County were included but are not printed here because of space considerations. Anyone wishing a copy of this material may request it by contacting Editor, Journeys Through Jackson.) William Hoffman! Higdon was born in Burke County'NC on Saturday, 14 September 1816. He was the oldest child of Leonard Higdon JrTEve Hoffman. When he was young he was known as "Billy" Higdon. His paternal grandparents were Leonard Higdon Sn/Susannah Harris, and his maternal grandparents were Samuel Hoffman/Barbara Moser, all of Burke County NC. In 1828 -Macon County NC was formed out of Haywood County NC. About this time Billy's parents and paternal grandparents left Btirke 'County and moved to Macon County to that part which is now in Jackson County. (It was not until 1851 that Jackson County was formed from parts of Haywood and Macon counties.) When the 1830 Macon County census was taken, Billy's father, Leonard Higdon, Jr., was living near James Buchanan. (Between 1836 and 1838 James Buchanan received several land grants on Savannah Creek: State Grants 17, 50, 157, 164, 168, 253, 255.) This same census listed Billy's grandfather Leonard Higdon Sr. as a resident of Macon County. Seven years later, this grandfather died in Macon County on 11 September 1837. W. H. (Billy) Higdon was courting his neighbor Jane (Jency) Buchanan2. On 2 Dec 1837, he obtained a Macon County marriage bond. Their marriage took* place Sunday, 3 Dec 1837. According to a story passed down in the family, at the time of the marriage W. H. Higdon's only possession was a horse, which prompted one of Jane's aunts to remark that "Poor Jane will live on bread and water the rest of her life." Fortunately, her prophecy did not-come true. Much mountain land was available, and young W. H. Higdon was interested in owning some of it W. H. Higdon acquired so much land in such a short time that he was unable to pay the taxes on all of it On 1 Jan 1842 a newspaper listed landowners who had failed to pay taxes. W. H. Higdon had a 300-acre tract on Caney Fork valued at Slper acre. Because the taxes wercaot paid, this tract was auctioned off in March 1842 at the Haywood County Courthouse. Over a period of about 40 years, W. H. Higdon acquired many tracts of land, including a 50-acre tract on Savannah Creek (State Grant #612 in 1844) which bordered the properties of Richard Jones and Luke Willson. He acquired an additional 25-acre tract on Savannah Creek. (S.G. #613 in 1844) and another tract of land at Webster. In 1845 Higdon sold his 50-acre tract on Savannah Creek to Luke Willson for S20. (Higdon had paid about $2.50 for this tract) Jane and W. H. Higdon were the parents of ten children: (1) Martha Jane, b. 7 Apr 1838, m. John Amnions; (2) Joseph H., b. 25 Jul 1839, m. Margaret Matilda Berry; (3) William Washington, b. 27 Dec 1841, m. Lydia Jane Moore; (4) Eve, b. 15 Oct 1844, did not marry, d. 26 Jun 1871; (5) Elizabeth, b. 22 Feb 1846, m. W. A. (Alex) Holbrooks; (6) Margaret, b. 10 May 1847, m. James Kennedy Bryson; (7) Samuel A., b. 13 Jan. 1849, m. Harriet Berry; (8) Joshua A., b. 1 Nov 1850, m. Louisa Ann Coggins; (9) Elender "Sis," b. 26 Sep 1852, m. James Gribble; (10) Thomas Bragg, b. 4 Jun 1855, thrice wed: (1) Mary Jane "Mollie" West [12 Sep 1854 • 1 Mar 1883]; (2) Martha Frances "Pattie" Rich [13 Feb 1869 • 4 Jul 1902]; (3) Lula Shepherd [24 Jan 1877 - 25 Nov 1976]. There may have been another child—possibly born between W. W. and Eve—who died very young. 1 The name is often spelled and pronounced "Huffman" though the original spelling may have been "Hoffman." ^ ^ 2 Jane, the daughter of James Buchanan/Martha Black, was born in September 1814. She was two years older than Billy. 125 When the 1840 census was taken, W. H. Higdon's parents, Leonard and Eve Higdon/ were in Haywood County NC in a section which is now in Jackson County. Their nearest neighbors were named Brown, Coward, Clark, Hooper, Pickelsimer, and Queen. Leonard's brother John Higdon was living nearby. John had married Sarah Queen on 17 September 1834. They had several small children. j Another one of the kinfolks, David Higdon, age 15-20, was in the same general area. In David's household was a girl 15-20 (probably his wife) and an elderly lady, 60-70. This elderly lady very likely was Susannah Higdon, widow of Leonard Higdon Sr. In the 1840 Macon County census, another Higdon named Elizabeth (40-50) headed a household in which a girl, 15-20), lived.4 Sometime prior to 1850, W. H. Higdon's parents, Leonard and Eve Higdon, as well as several of his brothers and sisters, went to Gilmer County GA. (See 1850 Gilmer County GA census.) According to the 1850 Macon County census, several Higdons remained in North Carolina. In the household of John Higdon in the Tennessee Valley Township were fifteen Higdons (two families): John Higdon, 48, his wife Sarah, 40, and their children John, 18; Leangel, 16; Jefferson, 12; William, 11; Adolphus and Margaret twins, 9; Sidon, 5; Polly, 4; and Rhoda, 3. Also in John's house were his mother, Susannah Higdon (widow of Leonard Higdon, Sr.), 75; her daughters Jane Higdon, 59, and Margaret Higdon, 37,s and her grandson Leander Higdon, 8. Also in Tennessee Valley Township were W. H. Higdon, 33, his wife Jane, 35, and their children: Martha, 13; Joseph, 11; William W., 9; Eve, 7; Elizabeth, 6; Margaret 4; and Samuel, 2. Their nearest neighbors were John Wilson, Jason Barker, William Cowan, E. L. Allison, John Howard, David Carpenter, and John C. Fulcher. The census taker visited their home on 17 September 1850. A little over a month later, on 1 November 1850, Jane and W. H. Higdon's son Joshua was born. In March 1853 the new county of Jackson was organized. Judge J. W. Ellis presided over the Spring Term of Superior Court of Law and Equity, which was held in the home of Daniel Bryson, Sr. Ellis appointed, among the magistrates, W. H. Higdon. (See article written by E. D. Davis in the 19 January 1906 Jackson County , Journal: that article was copied in the September-October Journeys Through Jackson.) In 1854 W. H. Higdon applied for a 100-acre land grant in Cherokee County and, with a partner Ramsey Dills, a 640-acre grant in Jackson County. He, together with Warren Barker and J. D. Franks, applied for other tracts in western North Carolina. Around 1855, Thomas Angel sold W. H. Higdon a Macon County farm containing at least 975 acres for a price of $1,000, to be paid in ten years at S100 per year. Around 1859, the W. H. Higdon family left Savannah community in Jackson County and moved into a two-story house facing Battle Branch Road on this Macon County farm. 31840 Haywood County Census: Leonard Higdon, age 40-50. 'In the 1850 census, Elizabeth Higdon, 50, was living in the household of Benjamin and Polly Stiles, 5On 4 May 1853 Margaret Higdon married William Walker. 126 FAMILY CEMETERY PROJECT Jackson County has literally hundreds of cemeteries and, white many are associated with particular churches or communities, most are resting places for small family groups. Until the I940's, transportation was a huge obstacle for Jackson County people, and most country families could not afford the luxury of professional mortuary services. Combine these facts with a strong sense of family loyalty and adherence to tradition, and family cemeteries were a logical outcome. In some cases, the cemeteries are abandoned or nearly so; In others, the plots are well maintained and are still in use, though infrequently. We encourage members to submit censuses of any of these small cemeteries that you know about PINE RIDGE CEMETERY CENSUS (Pine Ridge Cemetery is located on Wayehutta Creek above the Black Mountain Baptist Church.

Resting peacefully in the Lower Zachary Cemetery in Cashiers lies a woman whose strong mountains^ influence guided the childhood development of one of Tennessee's most distinguished political leaders. Sarah Emmalissa Norton (called "Aunt Em" by her family) was born in Cashiers 29 November 1842, the daughter of William and Susannah Zachary Norton, and granddaughter of Barak Norton and Col. John Alexander Zachary. She first married the Rev. Edward Gillem who died during the Civil War. Shortly after Rev. Gillem's death, she became engaged to a young Jackson County doctor, Lemuel Washington Hooper. Dr. Hooper first served in the Confederate Army under the leadership of Col. William Holland Thomas as a member of the Thomas Legion. However, like many other mountain men, Dr. Hooper had misgivings about his allegiance, whereby he abandoned the Southern cause, joined the Federal soldiers in Eastern Tennesee, and fought for the Union. Shortly after the war, Dr. Hooper settled just across the North Carolina border in Newport, Tennessee, where he practiced medicine. / After a long engagement, caused partly by the war, Dr. Hooper married the widowed Sarah Emmalissa Norton Gillem and removed her to his home in Newport. Unknowing to her, shortly before their marriage Dr. Hooper had fathered a son by a young Newport girl. During the ensuing years the son and his mother moved to several East Tennessee towns, finally settling in Knoxville, whereupon at age eight with the mother destitute, the young boy was placed in St John's Orphanage. After many years of married life, no children had come to Dr. and Mrs. Hooper. Finally they adopted an infant boy, who lived only long enough for them to become greatly attached to him. About this time, Dr. Hooper learned that his son, now nine years old, was living at the orphanage. He went to Knoxville, met the boy, ^_J then came back home and sought the support of his wife in adopting and raising his son. So, on November 9, 1879, Ben Walter Wade, now transformed to Ben Walter Hooper, returned to Newport, the place of his unwelcomed birth. Ben settled into his new life and years later recalled in his autobiography, aptly named The Unwanted Boy, his adoptive mother, with these words: "It soon became evident that my stepmother knew how to make the most of a boy. I was taught and required to do all manner of work, both men's and women's. I fed, watered, and curried a horse, fed and milked a cow, raised and attended to hundreds of chickens, cultivated a big garden, cared for a lawn and for flowers, washed dishes and churned, and soon became able to cut and carry in all the wood for a stove and a fireplace. "I was permitted to play with other children, but not to wander and loaf on the streets. I went nowhere without permission and conformed to strict time limits. "This sounds like Pollyanna or Dick Merrill, doesn't it? But, it is the authentic recital of how I was brought up. And this regimen created a love of work and a passion for achievement that has lasted through life." After a successful career as an attorney, Ben W. Hooper was elected Governor of Tennessee on November 8, 1910, and served two terms. Today, in Newport, Tennessee, you will meet many influential descendants of Governor Hooper. Local Cashiers resident Madge Dillard Merrill recently remembered her "Aunt Em" to the writers as V_^ 130 being quite a lady. As -a child, Madge recalls" her father, Tom Dillard, arid "Aunt Em" in heated debates over politics and religion-Tom being a Methodist and a Democrat and his Aunt Emmalissa being a Baptist and a Republican. Madge said, "They argued from the time she got there until she left!" Emmalissa never forgot her mountain home and, although she buried her husband in Newport, Tennessee, chose to return to Cashiers Valley. She now lies buried beside her sisters and her brother near the site of her birth, having left her mark on the history of Tennessee. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Long-Distance Research (conclusion) (The following paragraphs, abstracted from The Genealogy Bulletin, conclude the article on how to conduct genealogical research by mail.) 7. Library Resources. Writing to a library presents a challenge because libraries are not often able to respond to written requests or provide a "look-up" service to their collections. Unless you are requesting a specific source, such as an exact page from a particular book or a newspaper obituary where an exact date of death is know, librarians will either ignore your letters or respond by saying they do'not have time to undertake a search for you....The Fort Wayne Library, the second largest genealogical library in North America, provides a wonderful serVice to genealogists engaged in long-distance research. If you write to the Genealogy Department, Allen County Public Library, 906 Webster St, Fort Wayne IN 46802, you can request a basic genealogical search for one person or family. You should limit your request to one surname, one place, and one time period. The fee averages about $6 per request, including copies, and you will be billed for the amount due. 8. Exchanging with Other Genealogists. The final step in the geanlogical research sequence is making contact with others who may be working on the same lines as you. Clearly, there are great rewards awaiting you if you can publicize to others what you are doing. There are magazines that have queries or genealogical classified ads. A "query" is a question in the form of a specific set of facts about a family or surname. For a fee, narrative style queries can be placed in many different genealogical publications, plus there are several newspaper columns specific to genealogy that will print queries for no charge. In some cases, you may need to subscribe to a society to receive their periodical, or to qualify to place queries in their publication. (Ed. note: Queries are welcomed for Journeys Through Jackson.) You may also have success in contacting a genealogical society in an area .where your ancestors lived. Societies often have a person who responds to questions, and some groups will conduct limited research for a small fee. Ask if they will accept queries in their periodical and submit your queries in writing. The Genealogist's Address Book is a good place to find an address-for a genealogical society. A good query to a genealogical periodical should give the basics of names, dates, and places. An example of a narrative, free-style query: "Looking for any information about descendants of Hezekiah Dollarhide of Randolph County, North Carolina, about 1770 and later Randolph County, Indiana, about 1830. He was father of Emsley Dollarhide by his second wife, Dicey Brown, who he married in Wayne County, Indiana in 1827." i The eight-step genealogical research sequence (Ed. note: printed in July-August, September-October, and this issue) should be repeated as new information is discovered. For example, after interviewing family members and then learning more specific names, dates, or places from your long-distance research, you can go back to your relatives with the new facts you have learned. The .new information may jog'more memories and more places to search. 131 DEATHS REPORTED IN THE SYLVA HERALD JANUARY-MARCH 1993 (This information, abstracted by Larry Crawford, lists all obituaries printed in the local newspaper during the first three months of 1993.
