Larry Crawford Journeys Through Jackson is the official publication of the Jackson County Genealogical Society. Members and non-members are invited to submit genealogical materials for publication, with the understanding that the editor reserves the 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, the 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 We begin another year in the Jackson County Genealogical Society with many feelings and thoughts: first, we are thankful to the Provider for being here to start our new year; second, we are grateful to the membership for your outstanding generosity in response to our appeal in the Fall 2007 issue; third, we are eager as always to bring the efforts of JCGS members to this publication; fourth, we are anxious about our home, since the building we occupy is now on the market; and finally, we are firm in our resolve to do more genealogy in 2008. In our new issue, enjoy the treasure trove unearthed by Jan Crawford, see the usual fine work of Betty Cope Andrews, study two generations of the Phillips family, peruse the customary transcriptions of official records, and feast your eyes on some wonderful old photographs. In one way or another, eighteen JCGS members contributed to this issue. Is that very fine or what?

The 2007 Robert Lee and Drusilla Holden Award for Distinguished Service to Genealogy was presented to T. Walter Middleton. Walter, a JCGS life member, is the author of several books, the latest of which, Trouble at the Forks, details Jackson County life in the Civil War. Particularly interesting in the book is Walter's research into the H o o p e r - Watson feud. The Daniel Washington Deitz Memorial Award, presented annually to a JCGS member who has given extraordinary service to the Society itself, was awarded to Sanji Talley Watson. Sanji, who was one of the principal workers in the publication of our new marriage book, is also a frequent contributor to Journeys and is a faithful Office volunteer. Every group should be so fortunate as to have such members as these. U I n S y m p a t hy We offer our sincere sympathy to the family of JCGS member Bobby Carpenter, who died in December. We also offer our sympathy to JCGS members Blonnie Moody and James Monteith, who have recently suffered losses in their families. Journeys Through Jackson Winter 2008 A L e t t e r t o S o c i e t y M e m b e r s f r om P r e s i d e n t J a m e s M o n t e i t h A R e q u e s t f o r H e l p "We have for many years tried in vain to find the 1906 burial location of James (Parris's) maternal grandmother, Catherine DeHart Massey. A niece told us she had been told many years ago by her father that Catherine was buried in an unmarked grave in or near Whittier. We know that her oldest daughter, Lena M. Cooper, was buried in Thomas Memorial Cemetery in 1981, leading us to think perhaps Catherine was buried in the same cemetery...is there a record of burials or is there someone we could contact?" JCGS members James and Ruby Parris PO Box 252 Atkins IA 52206 U Dear fellow members: I have been thinking how I can possibly thank you folks for the great vote of confidence you have given me. I've decided that one of the ways to thank you is to simply say that I take this responsibility very seriously, and intend to do my very best to uphold the dignity of position that you deserve. It will be hard to fill the shoes of outgoing President Dorris Dills Beck. (Now wouldn't I look funny in a pair of Dorris's shoes?) Since I think that this task of filling her shoes is unattainable, I will work hard and try to make the right decisions for the Society. I treasure my friendship with Dorris and I hope I can count on her help with this new venture. Another way to thank you, since very few of you know anything about me, is to tell you a few things about my family and me. I was born James Eugene Monteith 27 Dec 1956 to Lowell and Jennie Jones Monteith. (I bet they thought, "Confound! What a Christmas present!) I am married to Kay A. Keefer, and we have two sons, Adam Winton Monteith and Levi Keefer Monteith. Kay is a registered nurse at Harris Regional Hospital. Kay and I have three grandchildren, Bradley Tyler, Leanah Taylor, and Adrienne Nichole Monteith. These children belong to Adam and his wife Stephanie Coggins ^_J Monteith. We enjoy being "Gram" and "Papaw." Our younger son Levi is unmarried. I work at Monteith Lumber Company in Ela, and I have worked in the timber and sawmill business for the past thirty years. My interests are raising daylilies, enjoying my privacy, collecting pocket knives, woodworking, Nascar racing, and of course genealogy. Enough about me. Here's hoping you all had a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and wishing all of your research to be fulfilling. Gratefully yours, James E. Monteith \ J Journeys Through Jackson Winter 2008 J C G S P h o t o A l b u m This photograph shows William Gilead Phillips standing beside his father's grave in the Bethel community of Haywood County.

JCGS member Lavine Greene Callicott writes, "Does anyone know this family? I found the original in a box of Mother's things after her passing. She probably got it in a box of things at a yard sale or flea market in the 1980's or early 1990's in Jackson or Swain County. Mother, Jane Greene, lived at Wilmot community in Jackson County. It is not now in a frame, but probably was originally. Approximately 10 by 15 Vt inches." If anyone knows the identity of the family above, please write to Lavine Greene Callicott 5807 Delta Lane Suitland, MD 20746 - 3839 W Journeys Through Jackson Winter 2008 J a n C r a w f o r d E x p l o r e s t h e C o n t e n t s o f a n O l d B o x [Ed. It is every genealogist's dream to find "old stuff' that actually has genealogical significance. In this case, JCGS member Jan Crawford shares with the Society the contents of an old box that was in the possession of his sister Judy and which was inherited from their grandfather L.W. ("Ranzy") Crawford. L.W. had in turn inherited some of these items from his father (G.W. Crawford), who had in turn inherited some of the items from his father W.R. Crawford. Only Jan is still living in this particular direct line, and we are grateful that he would share with us. Even those persons not directly related to Crawford or Hemphill should enjoy the old bills of sale, the spirit of the letters published, and the old contracts.] Item # 1 . . . L e t t e r from T.M. Crawford N.C. Jackson Co March the 30 1876 Dear uncle and aunt I take the opportunity of draping you a few Iins to let you know how we all are and about the sickness and trouble and distress we have had in the family and settlement. I was at the Peabody school a t Cold Spring N.C. a going to school and taken the mumps and whil I was there Wesly Williamses wife took down sick with the fevor and had a very severe attact of the fevor and mother wated on her and tended very closely to her during the sickness, and when she got able to be taken home they hailed her home, and the very day when they took her home mother took down with the fevor and this day marks the twenty third day since she was taken down and She is very low now but a little better than She was but mends very slow, they stood over her bed side watching to see her dy but as God allowed it, she liveth yet. They Sent bed close and soft things for me to ride on and Sam came to me and took me home, and in a short time after I got home Wesley Williams took down with the fevor and laid eleven days and died and he died the happiest man I ever saw, he become so happy a day or so before he died that he did not no his misserie appearantly he almost preached the day before he died at night, he said he could see a chain and it was very near wound up and he told several of us that they was a great revival just before him, and he (said?) to me and his wife and more of the people for us not to weep for him but to weep for our selves and he said to me I now that my redeemer liveth. We have great faith and evidence that he is now where he can reap the benefits of his labour and toils and troubles that he had here. I think he is gone to walk t h e golden streets of the New Jerusalem, I think he is with moses and all of the prophets and disciples and children of God and is where he can give glory and Honor and praise to the most high and where he can reap the joys thereof. Uncle I could tell you more in one hour if I was with you than I can write in one hole day. I would love to see you all and talk with you but I cant tell fall. I want to come next fall and see you all, mother says that she never expects to see you any more without you come to see her for she never will be able to come see you So I will have to come to a close by saing I truly want you to write us and let know how you all are. Yours truly T.M. Crawford to Wm. Crawford and to ant Oily, and to Carletty [Ed. In the fall 2007 issue of this publication, T.M. Crawford's family was listed in our "One Thing and Another" section. T.M. is writing to Rev. William R. and Olive Hemphill Crawford. "Billy" Crawford was this young man's great - uncle, but Billy's wife "Oily" was the writer's aunt, sister of his mother, Hannah Hemphill Crawford. Hannah and Olive were daughters of Robert and Mary Queen Hemphill. Wesley Williams, whose death he describes here, is actually his brother - in - law. Point of interest: Where was the Peabody School at Cold Springs? We assume he is talking about the place we recognize in Swain County. Can anyone enlighten us further about such a school? (Hannah survived this crisis, but died in September of 1876.)] Journeys Through Jackson Winter 2008 Item #2...Letter from P.J.

We certainly have no trouble excusing all of the bad writing and spelling, since the writer of this letter is the editor's great - great grandfather. We have never seen anything in his hand before. He was still just a young man (18 years of age) when this letter was written, and it is obvious he is not enchanted with the war. He served in Thomas' Legion. When he wishes for peace, we wonder if he is referring to the Union service of one of his older brothers.] KJ Item #3...Letter from A.J. Crawford January the 5th [1862] Camp [near?] Grahamville SC V j Wm R Crawford Dear father It is With pleasure that I sete my Self in answer to lines of the 28 of Oct Month which came to hand a few days ago and it gave greate satis faction to hear that you are all well and these lines leaves me well and [page torn away] when tha reach you tha may may find you and all the Rest of the family well you and my wife Rote that you wanted me and RP to Right Rite home every week and the Reason that I have not Rote before this time is I was waiting for you all to rite and I had nothing of importants to Right there has Ben a gradeal of Sickness here and [page torn] few deaths but non Since I Rote last at the present time there is not many sick all of our company is improving very fast and in a Short time the[y?] will all be well.

We received orders the other Evening to hold our selves in Readiness for the Yankees was landing. We thought for a long time that we wood never sea a yankee here but I am of a different opinion there is no other chance only for us to fight and the Troops all appears ancious to get in to it Dear father I would like to Sea you all and tell you the ups and downs that we have [w]hen a person has no idea that never [h]as tride it.

J. Crawford Sinea M. Crawford P.J. Crawford Vilet E. Crawford G.W. Crawford Mariah Crawford all Rite soon [Ed. A most interesting pair of letters from A.J. "Andy" Crawford home. In the first, notice the tone of the letter...certainly he doesn't seem eager to show any false bravado, but rather seems accepting of the fact that fighting must be done. We are immensely pleased to run this letter. Andy Crawford was killed at Malvern Hill five months after he wrote this letter. In the second, note that he names his younger brothers and sisters still at home. Sina Crawford would later marry Samuel H. Bryson, Violet would marry Joseph Sutton, and Mariah would marry John Sullivan Bryson. George Washington Crawford was just a little boy. P.J. Crawford was not yet in the war, but had been on the worse end of a fight with a Union sympathizer named Loudermilk, who was, according to tradition, riding with "raiders." We are curious whether Andy is just saying hello to the three other named persons, or whether he is asking them also to write to him. We know the identity of Pink, and we suspect that the two feminine names also refer to slaves. If they were literate, then the Rev. W.R. Crawford broke the law. That was a good thing, if we might editorialize with many years of retrospect.] Item #4...Letter from Joseph P. Hemphill Pine Mountain Geo Oct 18th 1857 Dear Brother & Sister It is with great concern that I avail myself with the present opportunity of droping you these few lines in order to inform you that I am not at the time very well though I am on Foot. I were very sick as I came Home from your House. I did not get Home until Monday Evening after I left your House on Saturday. At this time My family are all on Foot but they are not well. We have all been very sick some time since and We have lost our Baby little James Aaron. He died on the 18th of last Month Sept. and at that time it appeared that We would have lost more of our children as they were all sick and a greater part of them were very Bad. But at this time I think they will recover if no relaps. AH the people of this country have been sick this season since I was at your Hous, the complaint that has raged through this country were the Bloody flux or something of that kind. Our Physicians say the complaint is wors than any Flux and above their skills. We have had many Deaths in this section the most of which were Children that have Died. Not many dangerous cases here at present, it is dying out. Journeys Through Jackson Winter 2008 Dear Brother you see stated on the 1st page of my Letter that I have lost my Minor Son and as I feel it my duty to have my little sons Funeral Preached, I must ask you to attend to and , J Preach it for me, if you can do so. I had rather you would Preach the Funeral than any other Preacher that I am acquainted with and therefore if you will come and Preach it I wish you to let me know by Writing as soon as you receive this. Suit your Self as to the time that you can come so as to give your Letter time to Reach me and I will let the People know when the Meeting will be. Should it happen that you cannot come and Preach the Funeral, I want you to Write and let me know, though I hope you will send an appointment if it is in your power to come. So I will leave the Funeral subject with you in hopes of receiving an appointment soon. You will please give the above subject to balance of the relation as son as you receive Yours with great Respect J.P. Hemphill & Margaret Hemphill Direct to Pine Mountain Rabun Co. Geo We have not made very good crops here this year and on the last of Sept we were visited with Frost that bit a great deal of Fodder and some corn Beef is worth 41/2 or 5 cts per lb Pork, the price not established I believe I have nothing more to write at present, but in hopes of hearing from you soon I am Respectfully &c J.P. Hemphill [Ed. This is another fascinating document. William R. Crawford was married to Olive Hemphill, a sister of the man who wrote this letter. They were son and daughter of Robert and Mary Queen Hemphill. Robert was a son of James and Elizabeth Patton Hemphill. We can find census documentation for Joseph in Rabun County, but until we saw this letter, we were unsure of just where he lived. (Pine Mountain is located between Clayton and Walhalla.) The "P" in his name stood for "Patton," the maiden name of Joseph Hemphill's grandmother. We are curious about the extent of this man's education...this letter is written with attention to spelling, and even has some correct punctuation. The last time we checked at the grocery store, a decent steak was nearly $14 per pound, slightly higher than the prices Hemphill was quoting here.] Item #5...Scotts Creek School Committee State of North Carolina Jackson County We the undersigned School committee and patrons of the 3rd School district in Scotts Creek Township having heretofore [illegible] an order on H.P.

Crawford North Carolina Jackson County May the 3rd 1885 The Baptist church at Mount Pleasant in conference, on motion appointed Elders M.C. Compton, B.N. Queen, W.W. Reed and E.D. Brendle a Presbytery before whom brother G.W. Crawford was presented for ordination to the gospel Ministry: who was found Qualified and Sound in the Baptist faith; We therefore have set him apart and ordained him to the gospel Ministry by Prayer and the laying on of hands. And by these presents he is therefore authorized to conduct the public worship of God. To expound his Word: and to do whatever is assigned to the Christian ministry. To him therefore is committed the government of the church and the administration of the ordinances. The work to which the Lord has called you to consecrate your life is great and honorable, But of fearful responsibility. May the great Shepherd and Bishop of Sonls give you grace to make full proof of your Ministry: in all things Showing yourself a patron of good works: in doctrine Showing uncorruptness, gravity, Sincerity and Sound Speech that cannot be ^J condemned.

While looking up something for another reason, we needed to use this particular document. Then it occurred to us that we could attempt to isolate the families who lived in Haywood County in 1830, but probably resided in areas that would later be encompassed by the boundaries of Jackson County. Those areas would be Scotts Creek, Caney Fork, Soco, Oconaluftee, and other areas along the Tuckaseigee River on the east side. West of the river was Macon County. Please understand that this is guesswork, and we might well have included families here who never lived in what is now Jackson County. A reminder also, for the less experienced genealogists, that all names in a family were not recorded until the 1850 census. Abstracted by Larry Crawford December 2007 from census microfilm.] We believe the first families to be near Balsam Gap: Hardy M.

This man and wife have many descendants in JCGS, including the editor. The little boy in the house is most probably a grandson, and is possibly one of the James Crawford children who had lost their mother at a very young age. The young man would be William R. Crawford, who did not marry until 1832, and the young woman Frankie, who would marry Oliver Painter. The older people are, of course, Samuel Crawford and his wife Mary (probably Briscoe) Crawford.
