Members and non-members are invited to submit genealogical materials for publication, with the understanding that the editor reserves die right to edit these materials for genealogical content, clarity, or taste. The Society assumes no responsibility for errors of fact that may be contained in submissions, and except where noted, die opinions expressed are not those of the editor or of the Jackson County Genealogical Society. The Society accepts no advertising for this publication except for notices for other non-profit groups. From the Editor Does anyone know what season it is at the moment? Three weeks ago we were shivering through a blackberry winter that was breaking records in many places, then in the last few days we have sweltered. When we would complain as children about the weather, our very wise mother would inform us that it was ' not a bit of our business. Wise words indeed. y Join us in this issue for our usual mixture of official records, family descent, the continuation of the cemetery census we have been publishing, a small humorous recipe, and some excellent how-to materials from the North Carolina State Archives. We also, of course, have some fine old photographs for your perusal. Notice on the first page this time about our picnic announcement, and make sure to return your Holden Award nomination by August 1. If at all possible, be with us for our covered - dish meal, always a highlight of the summer. And as always, regardless of the weather, keep on digging.

Crawford. Robert Lester Crawford Jr. passed away Sunday June 2. We and R.L. would have funny conversations about the similarities of our names, even though we were not related. (R.L. was a descendant of the Macon County, thus Haywood County, Crawford family as contrasted to the Willets and Cullowhee Crawfords of Jackson County, and even though many persons have expended great genealogical efforts, those families have not been connected after 1769.) R.L. was an Air Force veteran of World War U, and was a much-liked member of our Society. We extend our sympathy to his widow, children, and grandchildren. Announcements Make your plans now to be with the Society at the annual picnic in August. On Thursday August 8 at 6:30 p.m., we will gather at the WCU picnic area for our meal and our annual awards presentation. We hope to see you there. Please find your Holden Award nomination with this issue and mail to the Society address. Sold out. The second volume of Jackson County Heritage is no longer available; therefore, members who know of persons interested in purchasing a copy should take their names and addresses for a waiting list. We will need 100 names before we can consider a reprint. Deanne Gibson Roles, our Technology Coordinator, reports that she is now placing notices of family reunions at our Website. An excellent idea. Genealogy fairs and seminars coming up this summer in Macon County (June) and Rowan County (August).

The lads in the next row are Marion's sons excpt for G.T.'s son Raymond Sr. on the right. The seated ladies are Marion's wife Ellen (Wood), G.T.'s wife Parthenia (Page), Varinia (who married into the Stephens family), Hut's wife Lola (Stephens), and the other women and children are not yet identified. The little boys in front include G.T.'s sons John and Burder on the left and three others. Kenny would welcome further identifications.

It is hardly the scope of our publication to delve into all of the political convolutions and shenanigans centering around the status of the American Indian. In a nutshell, let it be sufficient to say that the state of North Carolina gave a halfhearted effort to provisions of the 1819 treaty which would allow the Cherokees individual reservations. These papers predate the Indian removal efforts of the 1830's by some years, and show that the Cherokees who lived in the Smoky Mountains were to be exempt from the controversies that surrounded the Trail of Tears by the mere fact that they were property owners in the state of Norm Carolina. If all of this had come to pass, then the history of our immediate area would have been somewhat different from the way it eventually transpired. We all know that a federal reservation was eventually a reality. We all also know the disgraceful way that the American Indian was treated, even if some of us' would prefer to deny the facts. But with political opinions and sermons aside, here are some factual documents from our area from the early 1820's. Transcribed by Larry Crawford from material gathered in the North Carolina State Archives in the Haywood County loose court papers January 2002.] Ky Ky November the 20, A.D. 1820 "A true and acerat [Ed.

The best place to start is with living family members. Collect information from your family through interviews, Bible and other family records, and cemetery inscriptions. Using this information, fill in the ancestor chart on the back of this sheet with names of known ancestors. Record your name in space 1, your father's name in space 2, and your mother's name in space 3 using her maiden name. Add the names of your father's parents in spaces 4 and 5 and the names of your mother's parents in spaces 6 and 7. Record the date and place for each birth, marriage, and death known, as weU as the sources of your information about each event. Continue to add new ancestors in the same manner as they are discovered and proven. Begin your research in the Library by checking the catalog to see if there is a genealogy of your fanuly. Check to see if there are published indexes and/or abstracts/transcriptions of records for a specific time and place. For information on organizing your research, consult Val Greenwood's The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy (2d ed., 1990, reprinted 1995). Continue to trace the family through vital records, census records, wills, estates records, marriage records, land records, tax records, and court records. 93 Journeys Through Jackson May - June 2002 Vital records (births/deaths) were not kept in North Carolina on a statewide basis before October, 1913. For most counties, microfilm indexes of births and deaths (1913-) are available to researchers who visit the Archives Search Room. Death certificates, 1913-1955, are in the custody of the North Carolina State Archives. All birth certificates (1913-) and death certificates (cl955- ) are held in Vital Records, Department of Health and Human Services. Instructions for requesting copies are in both brochures mentioned below. Systematically find and record your ancestors and their household in censuses. Begin with the latest available census in which your earliest proven ancestor might have appeared. Using census indexes, systematically work backward in each preceding census, noting changes in households through the years. Careful analysis of information determined from all the census schedules should indicate probable county of residence, household members, and neighbors of your ancestors. The 1920,1910, 1900, and 1880 censuses state the relationship of each person in the household to the head of the household and can be used as substitutes for nonexistent birth certificates. The 1890 census has been destroyed, except for a few fragments; a partial census of Union veterans survives. If you can determine the county and township in which your ancestor was living in the census year, read that township. If you know only your ancestor's name, use the microfilm Miracode or Soundex indexes for 1920, 1910, 1900, and 1880 North Carolina censuses. The 1880 index includes only households with children ten and under. The 1870, 1860, and 1850 indexes are in book form. Heads of households and people with a different surname are indexed; wives and children appear in the census, but not in the index. Always look at the census, not just the index. Use census forms; copy all information for the entire household. The name, age, and birthplace of each person in the household, relationship to head of household (1880-1920), occupation, value/ownership of real estate and/or personal property, literacy, ownership of slaves, and neighbors identify a particular person. They also help to distinguish two people with the same name and may give clues to other sources of information. Both the 1900 and 1910 censuses indicate the number of years a couple has been married. Use this information to search the county marriage records. Marriage licenses after 1872 should indicate the names of the parents of the bride and groom. 1870 is the first census naming all African-Americans. To research such families thought to have been slaves, look at all their neighbors (regardless of race) for other family members and possible former owners. For information about slaves before 1865, study the records of the slave owners: census schedules (slave and free), wills, estates records, deeds, bUls of sale, and any family papers which may be found in manuscript coUections. Although censuses from 1840-1790 list only heads of household by name, each of these censuses must be recorded and analyzed. The 1840-1800 censuses are indexed. . J l surviving 1790 census schedules have been published, with indexes, by state. Review the ages and birthplaces given for all people in the 1850 and later censuses; use this information to select the appropriate state indexes to search backwards from 1840 to 1790. Remember that the birth date of a person remains the same; parents at one time were children. Using census forms, record all heads of household of the surname being searched in that county or state. Transcribe the statistics for everyone in the household, both free and slave. Record the immediate neighbors in the same manner. Next proceed to the records of the county in which your ancestor lived. Search wills and/or settlements of estates of those who may have died. Look for marriage records of those who may have married. Look for deeds that record your ancestor's purchases, sales or gifts of land. Also study tax lists, court records, bonds, and other county records. Extensive research in the records of the county where your ancestors lived will help you recreate the lives of your ancestors and their families. When each new ancestor is proven, begin all over again, starting with the appropriate census schedules.

If the ancestor was a minor, a married woman, or a slave, you first must identify the free adult male in that person's life (father, guardian, husband, or owner). If the ancestor was born here before 1913, there is n o birth certificate to identify parents. Begin your search for them in the place where you found the ancestor, not the place where the person was born. Work systematically backwards through the person's life from death to birth, starting with the will/records o f the individual's own estate. Examine the inventories/accounts of sales for clues to occupation, social/economic status, ethnicity, and religion. Identify children, administrators or executors, bondsmen, and estate-sale purchasers (they may be relatives, friends, and neighbors who moved there with the ancestor). Search the deeds for a land division among heirs, for acquisition of that land, and for the earliest deed (its date may approximate a person's arrival in t h e county or age of majority; other information in it may place of origin). Also examine marriage, tax, and court documents. Record complete data for t h e ancestor's census "family" from every census in which the person was a head-of-household in that state (remember— the person was ten years younger on each earlier census). Collect census data for about ten neighbors xm each side of the family and for anyone of the same surname or anyone mentioned in probate and other documents. Study these individuals' records for clues about relationships among them as well as their arrival dates and origins. Examine county histories and maps for likely migration routes and origins of prominent settlers. Assemble all this data in chronological order, noting all sources, to use in the next stages of your search. Without vital records, proof of an ancestor's parentage will most likely be found in the place where the parents died, not where the child was born. Backtrack the ancestor's migration each step o f the way. When the person ceases to appear as a census head-of-household, note also the presence/absence o f his neighbors and associates. Search for the group's earlier appearances along migration routes. Wherever the ancestor was when he would have been a child in the next-earlier census, look there for householders of the same surname with a child of the right sex and age. Search that householder's records. As before, begin with probate documents, deeds, and other records. If t h e householder did not die in that place, retrace the migration route to look for the place where that person died. Any record you find that proves who a person's children were, also proves who was-the parent of each of those children. If your ancestor was one of t h e children, you have found his father or mother. I f not, continue your search as before. When you have found the ancestor's parent, continue tracking that parent backwards step-by-step repeating the same strategies.

The 1870 federal population census schedules, the first on which the f o r m e r^ slave is listed by name, must be studied carefully for other individuals of that surname who may be possible family members and potential former owners. Even if one knows that an ancestor was b om during slavery, he must study all subsequent census schedules carefully and systematically from the latest available (currently 1920) backwards. Births, deaths, and marriages should be searched for all known and suspected family members. Co-habitation records not only indicate the number o f years a couple have lived together as man and wife but also confirm the family tradition that the ancestor "was bom in slavery." The family researcher should look for other county records such as deeds, estates, and tax lists; cemetery records; Bible records; and church records. Freedmen's Bureau, Freedman's Savings and Trust Company records, and WPA slave narratives may also prove useful. Slaves were enumerated on all federal census records, 1790-1860, but not by name. From the 1870 census, the researcher should proceed backwards to the 1860 and 1850 separate slave schedules which list, under the name of the owner, each slave by sex, specific age, and color only; no slave names are given. The researcher will be looking for a male or female, and his family i f appropriate, who is 10 and 20 years younger than the individual(s) he identified on the 1870 census schedule. 1790,1800, and 1810 census schedules indicate only the total number o f slaves; while 1820,1830, and 1840 schedules list them by sex and age range. This data presents possible former slave owners, for it is the records o f the slave owners that one must search and analyze for information about slaves before 1865. The researcher will need to learn as much as h e can about the owner and his family: his wife and in-laws, his children and whom they married, even where he attended church. One could acquire slaves through purchase, inheritance, marriage, and natural increase (children, grandchildren, etc. of slaves acquired earlier). ^j Records o f the ownership o f slaves are found in both public and private records. Public records are those created by the owner as required by local, state, and national governments. Local records, i.e., the county records in North Carolina, are the most fruitful for genealogists. These are the records which record marriages of owners, deeds o f gift/trust o f slaves, purchase/sale o f slaves, transfers of land among family members, wills/settlements/divisions o f real and personal property at the death o f a person, lists o f taxable property, and records o f actions in the local county courts. The miscellaneous records o f some North Carolina counties include some slave records. Guide to Research Materials in the North Carolina State Archives: County Records (1 l th rev. ed., Division o f Archives and History, 1997) lists for each county those records, original and microfilmed, which are available for research in the Archives Search Room. Preliminary Guide to Records Relating to Blacks in the North Carolina State Archives (Archives Information Circular No. 17) by Thornton W. Mitchell is available from the North Carolina State Archives, 4614 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699- 4614. Private records are those kept by the owner/owners (family Bibles recording their births or deaths, business ledgers, contracts, leases, and other records relating to the health and work of their slaves). Since these are personal records kept by the owner for his own use they may be difficult to find. Those that have survived may still be in the possession of the family, in a manuscript collection, or in an archives. Guide to Private Manuscript Collections in the North Carolina State Archives, edited by Barbara T. Cain, Ellen Z. McGrew, and Charles E. Morris (3rd ed. Raleigh: North Carolina Division of Archives and History, 1994) i s a guide to collections o f private papers in our state archives. The Southern Historical Collection at U N C - Chapel Hill and Perkins Library at Duke University also have outstanding manuscript collections. Records o f white churches^ generally held in their respective church repositories, are another category of private record which should be KJ sought, as slaves often were members of the local white churches or were permitted to worship at their owner's church. 96 Journeys Through Jackson May - June 2002 Ky 1 9 5 3 J a c k s o n C o u n t y D e a t h C e r t i f i c a t e s o f P e r
