    Notes:

    He courted Aunt Margie while she was staying with Mom & Dad in Detroit in the late 40's. I thought he was the most exotic person I had ever seen - he wore torn Levi's, T-Shirts and rode a Harley-Davidson! Nothing like him in our family! He always spent some time with me and I thought he hung the moon! Uncle Jack was a hoot - great sense of humor...

    DECUENNICK

    On Sunday, April 25, 2010, our family and friends lost our "Pop" to be with the Lord and the ones who have preceded him in death in God's heavenly place. Jack Francis DeCuennick was a one-of-a-kind person who will be truly missed, but his spirit will always be remembered. He was someone who could make a stranger comfortable, make a friend smile, show unwavering loyalty and love to his family and always enlighten your day with a few good facts and jokes in conversation or by email. He was loved dearly and was under the loving care of his family when he was called home by the Lord at age 81.

    Jack was assembled in Detroit, Michigan on June 22, 1928 and passed away April 25, 2010.

    He retired from the Air Force and Army after serving 20 years. Jack then continued working as a systems analyst in civil service and various businesses. Jack and his wife Phyl enjoyed square dancing, playing poker with his friends, and golf.

    Jack is preceeded in death by his parents Gustave and Eliza DeCuennick. He is survived by his wife, Phyllis DeCuennick. Also by his children Karen Mitchell, Pamela Tietze, Scott Green and Dawn Cline; and his granddaughters Danielle Tietze, Megan and Emily Mitchell, Kerri, Erin, Taylor and Devan Green, and Kayla Cline.

    Funeral services will be held at 12:00 noon on Thursday~April 29, 2010 at the funeral home. Interment will follow at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery with full military honors.

    Notes:

    Youngest of Pop's children. Suffered mulitple strokes and went Home to be with Him and her beloved mother. Soft-spoken and the sweetest disposition. Spent many cherished hours with Aunt Margie as a child and shared profound moments with her later in her life. She was a loving and beautiful person...DAH

    Early in her marriage to Uncle Jack, as he was away in the USAF, Aunt Margie would pick me up on the week-end and bring me to her apartment. Saturday night always included watching Snooky Lanson & Gisele MacKensie on their show, "Your Saturday Night Hit Parade"...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWkZds1NYFc

    I noticed that. I figured out that she (Margie Sue) was 9 weeks premature since she only weighed 3.5 lbs. Her due date was probably end of May.

    Notes:

    Uncle George told me some things about his Mom, my Grandmother, Urbanie Eliza Maes. She knew 7 languages and was quite intelligent. Her Dad was a tailor. My Grandmother was an excellent seamstress as is evident from her wedding picture. She made her wedding dress featuring Soutache embroidery. Evidently her family owned a lace making operation in Belgium; she used to sell Belgian lace to the French. The family could not afford to pay the taxes so it was lost.

    She went through Ellis Island on 27 March 1921. She was from Hulste, Belgium. Her birthday was March 17, 1899, so she had just turned 22. She married my Grandfather in May, 1921, perhaps it was an arranged marriage.

    My Dad referred to his Mother as "an angel." Her Catholic faith was very dear to her, and I understand that she was very upset when my Dad married my Mom, a Baptist.

    My grandparents lived in Grosse Point Woods. They were close to their extended family. My grandfather made beer in the basement; my grandmother grew Belgian endive under the stairs.

    My Grandmother took in sewing, and maybe laundry. My Grandfather was a machinist.

    Dad always said she made the best Raisin bread. It was rich with eggs and yellow in color. She evidently was a good cook, and passed that on to my Dad who inspired my love for cooking.

    Perhaps if my Grandmother lived today, she would have a different life. Something horrible happened to her during WW I. She began to have manic-depressive episodes and was sent away to a mental hospital. My Grandfather could not keep up with the medical bills. Hard times hit their family, my Grandmother then went to a State run hospital. My Mom said she used to get nervous when she had to go back to the hospital. I think I would be nervous also about going to a mental institution in the 1950's. She had a lobotomy at some point in the 1950's.

    Attached is a picture of Emily Sue Mitchell, Urbanie Eliza Maes' great granddaughter, in New York, with the Statue of Liberty in the background taken in 2012. That was 90 years after Emily's Great Grandmother was in the same location.

    Notes:

    Known to his siblings as, "Grundy". Mother mentioned that Pop played the fiddle until he broke a finger and never picked-up the fiddle again. It seems he played at barn dances...DAH

    Aunt Pearl tells us a different story about Pop's fiddle playing. Pop quit playing the fiddle at barn dances because he saw Ma dancing with another man...

    For more details for Pop & Ma 's hard life, go to the page, "Memories of Lucile Byars Hennessee (1918-2008)" on this website;

    http://thehennesseefamily.com/getperson.php?personID=I2&tree=hennessee

    I need not mention his parsimony as the entire family remember Pop was "tighter than Dick's hat band" when it came to money. The other side was his generosity when he'd had a couple drinks...

    end of comment

    Sunday morning, October 20, 2013:

    Spoke to Aunt Pearl this morning about Pop & Uncle Pete in regards to their "troubles with the law"...

    Pop thought that if he could run one load of whiskey to Nashville, that would solve all of his financial problems as...

    This was in the early 1930's and he was living with his young family in Green Hill (DeKalb County) where he was cropping shares (for Ralston Sullivan) and hauled logs part-time. Can you imagine working the fields all day and then hauling logs to McMinnville, 10 miles away, all on foot and by mule? No wonder he thought this was an easier way to make a few dollars.

    Pop got caught. Aunt Pearl tells us that it took everything he had to avoid jail and he never did that again!

    Ma told me that Pop worked as a mechanic (probably during the 1930's). At some point, Pop began selling "Philco" radios and farm implements for Herbert Ralston "Ralston" Sullivan (1894-1962) who owned the "Sullivan Company" of McMinnville and apparently did this through the early 1950's as I remember travelling with him out in the country to call on his prospests and customers...

    Aunt Pearl told me that Pop shared crops from Ralston before he began his sales career. It seems Ralston thought well of Pop. Aunt Pearl was surprized to find out that he and Pop were the same age.

    In 1941 Pop went to Detroit. He worked for Budd Wheel through the summer of 1943. In 1945 he bought the log house on North Warren Street and the family moved there from their residence on Towles Avenue.

    Then Pop buys a taxi, about 1943, which he ran until late 1949 - early 1950. It is at this juncture that Uncle Pete became a felon. Uncle Pete borrows the taxi from Pop and drives to Manchester and picks-up a lady(ies) for an evening of dancing and driking. Pete is "higher than a Georgia pine", crashes the car and kills a passenger. He is convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison in 1949 when he returns home about three years later...Pop got out of the taxi business.

    It is at this point that he works full-time for Sullivan. It was 1950 and I remember Pop bought a brand-new 1950 Plymouth, "Sea Mist Green", 4-door sedan and this was the car we travelled in when he called on his clients.

    He retired in the mid-1950's and spent his life fishing, whittling and guarding his realm sitting in an old wood chair propped-up against the garage in the backyard...

    end of note

    1930: Aunt Pearls tells us that the family lost their house to a fire after a visit to Granny Swindell. Pop thought it was arson by a man named, "Cantrell".

    1930: Familyh moves into the "Pitt Place" in Dibrell.

    1938: Moved to the "Sullivan House", then to town to the "Hennessee House" and then to the "McGregor House"...

    1940: They lived on Towles Avenue in town

    1945: Pop bought the house at 112 North Warren Street in McMinnville

    Perry married Vernia Elvira "Ma" Swindell 4 Jan 1915, DeKalb County, Tennessee. Vernia (daughter of James Monroe "Mon" Swindle and Rebecca "Becky" Goodson) was born 1 Jun 1894, Green Briar Bend, White County, Tennessee; died 1 Apr 1985, McMinnville, Warren County, Tennessee; was buried Mount View Cemetery, McMinnville, Warren County, Tennessee. [Group Sheet]


  4. 15.  Vernia Elvira "Ma" SwindellVernia Elvira "Ma" Swindell was born 1 Jun 1894, Green Briar Bend, White County, Tennessee (daughter of James Monroe "Mon" Swindle and Rebecca "Becky" Goodson); died 1 Apr 1985, McMinnville, Warren County, Tennessee; was buried Mount View Cemetery, McMinnville, Warren County, Tennessee.

    Notes:

    Personal Testimony of Vernie Elvira Swindell Byars:

    " I was born on a farm in White County, Tenn. about a mile from the Caney Fork River in the Green Brier Bend on June 1, 1894. My father was Monroe Swindell, a miller and my mother was Rebecca Goodson, known in that section as "Aunt Becky", she was the local midwife and everyone wanted Aunt Becky when they had their babies. I had 8 sisters and 3 brothers, I was a change of life baby and some my family thought it was awful for their mother to have a baby at 50.

    My father died at the age of 56, I was 10 years old, he possibly had cancer of the stomach, there were 5 children at home at this time. My brothers were bad to tease me. Example:Upstairs we had a lot of clothing that belonged to people that died and they told me there were ghosts up there so I was afraid of everything.

    I walked 4 miles to school and went as far as the 4th grade. In the fall I would pick peas to buy my winter clothes. Our entertainments was church socials, square dances. Being the youngest child I had nieces as old as I was and it was through one of my nieces that I met my husband, she had brought him to church with her and I thought he was the handsomest man I had ever seen and never dreamed he would look at me but after that he never went with anyone else.

    He was from across the river in DeKalb County, drove a hired buggy and dressed to kill. We were married Jan. 4, 1915. We took a boat across the river and was married by a Justice of the Peace. We stayed the first night with an uncle of my husband, Uncle Harrell (Byars) and Aunt Sarah.

    They had several children and the oldest liked to play jokes, we slept on a couch that let down from the front to make a bed and they did something with the legs in front so the couch slanted and I slept behind and spent the nite hanging on the the back of the bed to keep from rolling onto Green.

    He was working for a Great Uncle at that time, Claybourne Parrish so we moved into a one room cabin to start our married life.

    My mother gave me $5.00 and some bedding. I went to the field everyday with Green. Our first child (John Claybourne) was born June 4, 1916, my mother was with me ever time a child came and I only had the Doctor one time as I had difficulty delivering Fred.

    Green made $.35 a day and after working all day he would haul logs from Smithville to McMinnville (10 miles) and walked most of the way to keep from freezing.

    We had 5 more children, Robert Lucile, Fred Swindell, Bessie Lee, Eva Pearl and Margie Sue.

    Green learned to work on cars, T models and A model along with farming. We moved from one place to another farming on the shares.

    My mother died in April 1930 at the age of 82, fell and broke her leg. August 1931 our house burned, we lived at Green Hill and gone to White County to see my family, when we returned all was gone, food for the winter and during hard times. Our friends and neighbors gave us enough to start back housekeeping, Mr. Payton Griffith sent a wagon around the county. We moved to Dibrell then Green started working for Ralston Sullivan selling gas refrigerators and radio's, later farm machinery and tombstones. He worked off and on for him for 30 years.

    In 1938 we sold all our farming stuff and moved to McMinnville, on Spring St. In 1941 we were at war with Germany and our oldest daughter lived in Detroit so Green went up there and got a job at Budd Wheels as a riveter with only a 4th grade education, he worked 1942 & 43 then came back and drove a taxi for the duration of the war. We had always rented but he saved enough to buy our house 112 N. Warren St.

    I was always raised to go to church and Sunday School and was saved August 1923 at a Methodist revival meeting at Keltonberg. If it had not been for the Lord's help during the depression we would not have made it, Green had ulcers and could not work part of the time, but the Lord always provided when I did not see how I was going to get by. He blessed us in allowing us to raise 6 children, none bad sick but we lost Fred at the age of 29 in a freak accident after going thru the war he came home and got killed at sawmill when a can of gasoline exploded.

    Green had a lung removed because of cancer in the spring of 1968, he died Dec. 13, 1968 and the age of 74."

    "Ma Byars" died April 1, 1985.

    Julia spent about 30 years of her life in the Middle Tennessee Hospital for the Insane (now Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute) as did her mother, Lettie. Fire & flood destroyed all the records...DAH

    Her granddaughter, Lucile, remembers that she displayed obsessive-compulsive behavior. She would boil water (no soap), pour over the dishes and rinse several times. Lucile also remembers her grandmother's nightmares.

    New Bildad Primitive Baptist to Celebrate 200 Years

    It's one of the oldest churches in DeKalb County and this week, the congregation of the New Bildad Primitive Baptist Church is celebrating 200 years of service to the Lord.

    Elder Ricky Arnold, pastor of the church, invites everyone to join them. "Starting this Thursday night, June 18th, the New Bildad Primitive Baptist Church celebrates it's 200th anniversary. The church was constituted in June 1809. It lettered from the Brush Creek Primitive Baptist Church, which is still in existence."

    "The New Bildad Primitive Baptist Church has been in the Seven Springs-Keltonburg community for 200 years now. We wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate and to thank God for His amazing Grace. In 200 years, the church has probably touched the lives of a lot of people and families that are here in DeKalb County. We'd love for those folks to come back and visit us."

    "The church divided in 1854 and the church that became known as Old Bildad changed their original church covenant but the church that became known as New Bildad still holds the church covenant and the Articles of Faith from 1809 and we still practice and worship as they did 200 years ago. We have a rich history and we want to thank God for that."

    end of description

    I wish to extend many thanks to Elder Ricky Arnold, current Elder, of the New Bildad Primitive Baptist Church, for his explanation of "2-Seed" Primitive Baptist doctrines and providing a chronology of Perry Green's service to this church.

    Two Seed in the Spirit Predestinarian Baptists

    The 1893 and 1896 minutes identified the Caney Fork Association as an association of "Predestinarian Two Seed Baptists." Just how long it had been identified by this theological label and theology, we do not know. The Big Fork Church in its early years and other churches on the early Stockton Valley Association era certainly did not espouse this doctrine, which was not created until the mid-1820s.

    "This strange group was organized by Elder Daniel Parker of Virginia in the 1820's. Parker had been ordained in Tennessee in 1806, and labored there until 1817. Thereafter, he ministered in Illinois until 1836, where he edited a periodical known as Church Advocate. The latter years of his ministry were spent in Texas.

    While in Illinois, he had published in 1826 and 1829 two pamphlets setting forth his peculiar theory of the two seeds in Eve, imparted by god and Satan respectively. This was his explanation of the doctrine that some are predetermined to be saved and some to be lost. According to his teaching, Christ can reach sinners without the aid of ministers or organizations of any kind. He and his followers, however, believed in a ministry invested with "legal authority" through the laying on of hands by the presbytery acting for a gospel church. Many were opposed, nevertheless, to a paid clergy. Like Arminian Baptists, they followed the practice of footwashing, regarding it as an ordinance. White their number was not larger than thirteen thousand members at the close of the nineteenth century, they were to be found in twenty-four states, though most numerous in Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas. Their four hundred and seventy-three churches, with a property value of more than one hundred and seventy-two thousand dollars, were organized in fifty associations. The decline of extreme forms of Calvinism among Baptists is nowhere more clearly apparent than in the diminishing membership of this group which numbered a mere two hundred in 1945."

    State Mental Hospitals

    Tennessee’s first facility for the mentally ill, Tennessee Lunatic Asylum, opened in 1840 Nashville as the eleventh institution for mentally ill in United States. Dorothea Dix, American activist on behalf of the indigent insane, visited Tennessee in 1847 and found Nashville asylum deficient. She implored the Legislature to purchase a larger site for a new hospital. The next year Legislature appropriated $40,000 for new hospital for insane. A site purchased on Murfreesboro Turnpike southeast of Nashville. Tennessee Hospital for the Insane (now Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute) opened with 60 patients transferred from old asylum.

    -----------

    Lourena Smith, age 1, appears in household of John Clonts, 1860, Gilmer Co.,GA

    ------------

    Have concluded that JOHN CLONTS was a brother to SAMUEL CLONTS.

    Based on family lore that

    (1) Samuel came to North Georgia with a brother
    (2) biographical similarities, i.e., birth-dates, birth-states, and
    (3) traditional family names given their offspring
    (4) Norman Clontz' family group records and
    (5) Loie Clontz Christie's identification of George's children in a letter written to Mr. R.H. Clontz, October 23, 1972.

    ------------

    Per Helen Casada, "He (John) is buried at Old Cartecay Cemetery which is in a pasture. There are 10 or 11 marked graves. No other CLONTZ. However, on each side of John's grave is a grave marked only with a field stone."

    Conclusion: John was married when he came to Georgia in circa 1833 based on diary entries of William Thomas Prestwood. WTP alludes to John's wife and notes that John moved...

    There are marriage records for John to Irene Dunn, in 1838, and testimony of Mahala Hembree that she married a man named, John Clonts, in 1851, in Gilmer County, Georgia. Therefore, John is married three times.


    -----

    The two children, Momoc & John, listed in the 1870 census with his second wife, Mahala, seem unlikely to be his children or even Mahala's because

    (1) why would John have two children named "John" and

    (2) given Mahala's age, it doesn't seem biologically possible for her to have had these two.

    Of course, the forename, Momoc, is intriguing. Is it Indian? Could he have been of Mahala's family since she claims Indian heritage? Or are Momoc and John simply neighborhood children who happened to have been in John's household when the census-taker was on his rounds?

    Testimonial evidence given by Mahala in her 1908 petition for land and money in the Indian Territory (Oklahoma), identifies her children beginning with Margaret - her oldest. No mention was made of Momoc or the first John which further supports the thesis that neither child was the off-spring of John and Mahala.

    Further research suggests that "Momoc" should read "Monroe"...John R. Clonts.

    John Clonts & Irena Dunn married Oct 14, 1838, Gilmer Co, GA, by Lewis D. Ellington; Bk 1, Pg 10.

    In 1840 census, John Clonts, his wife (her age of 15-20 indicates Irena was born 1820-1825), and daughter (age -5) are found next door to John Dunn, presumed to be Irena's father. A couple of houses away were Bethel Quillian & Lewis D. Ellington. Like John Dunn, the Quillian & Ellington families were listed in 1834 census for Giomer Co; all three surnames have historically been connected to Cartecay UMC.

    One source indicated that John Clonts came to Gilmer Co with his first wife & a 10-year old daughter; nothing more is known about them. Irena Dunn Clonts reportedly died on Mar 8, 1848 and was buried in the Cartecay UMC Cemetery. No legible tombstone has been found for Irena.

    Neither John Clonts nor John Dunn are listed in 1850 census for Gilmer Co. They may have moved to McMinn Co, TN where John Clonts reportedly married his third wife, Mahala Caroline Embree/Hembree on Mar 6, 1850. John & Mahala Clonts are back in the Cartecay District of Gimer Co in 1860 census. Census data for 1860 & 1870 shows them living in the Boardtown District of Gilmer Co.

    Census data indicates following children for John Clonts; the first four were probably Irena's chldren:
    1. Elizabeth, b 1840 - married Jones Smith in 1858; however she & daughter Lourena Smith, age 1, are listed with John & Mahala Clonts in 1860.
    2. Lucinda, b 1842 - reportedly married 3 different men named Cantrell & moved to DeKalb Co, TN
    3. Julia Ann, b 1845 - reportedly married a Cantrell & moved to DeKalb Co, TN
    4. Monroe, b 1848 - no additional info
    5. John, b 1850 - in same census is another son named John W., age 6; so this one may be in error.
    6. Letty A., b 1851 - reportedly married a Cantrell in 1870 & moved to DeKalb Co, TN
    7. Margarett P., b 1852 (listed as Clementine in 1870 census)
    8. John W., b 1854 - married Hannah Wright in 1874; they are buried at Mt Vernon Baptist in Gilmer Co, GA
    9. James M. A., b 1857 - married Lucy Ann Wright (sister to Hannah) in 1879; they are buried at Salem Baptist in Gilmer Co, GA
    10. Sarah J., b 1860 - married Joseph I. Teem in 1879
    11. Samuel A., b 1864 - no addnl info
    12. Mary E., b 1868 - no addnl info

    After death of John Clonts in 1879, Mahala filed for a pension in 1892 based on his military service.

    She was awarded $8.00 per month; upon her death, the government was presented with an itemized bill in the amount of $25.00 for her burial.

    Mahala reportedly died on July 24, 1909, and was buried at Salem Baptist in Gilmer Co, GA.

    No legible stone was found at Salem for Mahala.

    in the Organ Lutheran Church...

    http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Early_History_of_Organ_Church%2C_Rowan_County%2C_NC

    Early History of Organ Church, Rowan County, N. C.

    The proper name of this congregation is " Zion's Church," but there are few persons, even among its members, who are acquainted with its true name. The fact that it was, until recently, the only Lutheran church in North Carolina which was possessed of such an instrument of music, has given it this sobriquet, by which it is generally known and so called in all the records of the Lutheran Church in the State. The old organ—a relic of the past—is still there, but its voice is no longer heard in the worship of the congregation; like the voices of its contemporaries, who are now mouldering in the adjoining graveyard, its spirit of music is fled, and the external remains, encompassing a number of broken and disarranged pipes, are all that is left to remind us of a former age, a former congregation, and of a master whom it once honored. How forcibly, under such circumstances, do the following lines of Moore's Melodies strike the mind!

    "The harp that once, through Tara's halls,
    The soul of music shed,
    Now hangs as mute on Tara's walls,
    As if that soul were fled."

    The history of this congregation is gathered from the old German church-book, which is still carefully preserved, and the historic records are made therein by one of the first pastors, Rev. C. A. G. Storch, from which a correct idea may be obtained of the past transactions of the people who worshiped there.

    The first German settlers of that portion of Rowan County, along Second Creek, came from Pennsylvania, and were members of the Lutheran and German Reformed Churches, but in numbers far too few to erect a church for the sole use of either denomination; hence they concluded to build a temporary house of worship to be owned by themselves jointly, and which was called " The Hickory Church." According to the statement of the late Rev. J. A. Linn, this church occupied the site on which St. Peter's Lutheran Church now stands, and was built by permission on the land of Mr. Pullenwider, who, however, never gave the two congregations a title for this spot of ground, as the church was considered a temporary building only, to be occupied alternately by both these denominations, each of which expected to erect their own house of worship at a later period. The term "Hickory Church" also indicates of what perishable material this house of worship was built, and was in keeping with the original idea. It was soon left unoccupied, and in course of a few years it crumbled into ruins. More than half a century later a want for a church to be built on this same site was again felt, when St. Peter's Lutheran Church was organized, and a more durable building was erected.

    As was the case with all the first German settlers in North Carolina, who did not bring their pastor with them, so likewise were the Lutheran members of the Hickory Church destitute of the means of grace for some length of time, and as no other hope of obtaining a regularly ordained minister of the Gospel presented itself, the members were resolved to send to Germany for a pastor. In this manner they secured the services of Rev. Adolph Nussmann as their pastor, and Gottfried Arndt as their schoolteacher. The new pastor preached but one year in the Hickory Church to both denominations, after which some dissension arose, and a majority of the Lutherans then resolved to build a church for themselves, and in this manner originated Zion's Church, better known as Organ Church. The members of the German Reformed Church soon followed the example of their Lutheran brethren, and likewise built a new church on another location, which they named Grace Church, but ia more frequently called "The Lower Stone Church," on account of its position lower dowu the stream above mentioned, and built of the same material as Organ Church.

    Before the building of Organ Church was quite completed, Rev. A. Nussmann left this congregation, and went as pastor to Buffalo Creek Church, in Cabarrus County. The congregation, which now had a church but. no pastor, sent their schoolteacher, Gottfried Arndt, to be ordained to the office of the ministry, in the year 1775. He served them through the trying period of the Revolution, until 1786, when he moved to the Catawba River, residing in Lincoln County, and labored in that field to the close of his life.

    John married Mahala Caroline Hembree 6 Mar 1850, McMinn County, Tennessee. Mahala (daughter of James Madison "Mat or Nat" Hembree and Nancy Floyd) was born 3 Nov 1829, Rutherford County, North Carolina; died 24 Jul 1909, Santa Louca, Gilmer County, Georgia; was buried (Salem Baptist Church Cemetery, Ellijay, Gilmer County, Georgia).

    That I am 79 years of age. I claim my Indian descent through my father; my mother was white. My father's father claimed to be Indian. His name was Abraham Hembree. My father was born and raised in N. C., Burke Co. He left Burk Co. but I don't know when. I was born in Rutherford Co.,N.C. I don't know where my grandfather was born and raised. I never lived with the Indians.

    I lived in Hamilton Co., Tenn. among the Indians when I was a little girl, and my grandfather lived there too among the Indians. My father had something to do with the Indians - with the tribal matters.

    He was enrolled in 1851 and 1835. My grandfather was enrolled in 1835 but he was dead in 1851.

    My father was enrolled under the name Hembree. The name might have been Emory. In 1851 I was married to a man named Clonts. I never received anything from the government and my father did not either. My brother Jack Hembree received land in Ind. Terr. in recent years, since the war. My father did not have any Indian name that I ever heard of. All of my grandparents were white except my grandfather. My husband was white. I am recognized as white woman with Indian blood. Don't know how much Indian my father was. He showed a good deal of the Indian. My father died in 1882. I was living in Gilmer Co., Ga. in the eighties. I came here and enrolled my children at that time. I enrolled them before A. M. Johnson. That was to get so much money and so much land. We were to get land in the west. Never received any money yet nor land neither.

    Outside of Charlie Hester, a neighbor, I never heard of a man by the name of Hester. I am acquainted with Effie M. Chapman (15037). Her grandfather was my first cousin, that is, on her mother's side. Her great grandfather, Reuben Hembree, his mother was my aunt, she being a sister of my father. She claims her Indian descent through the same source as I do and thro no other source.

    Hi David,

    Barbara and I were in D. C. two weeks ago and spent an afternoon in the National Archives looking at 1906 "Cherokee" applications. Mahalia's application didn't give any indication that Jack, John Hembree was her brother. Letters in the file show she was requested to resubmit her application because they couldn't read the writing in the original application. She did, and of all things, I forgot to copy it.

    I could not find Abraham Hembree's application. It had the same file # as Margaret's and wasn't with her file.

    I did make a copy of Margaret's application. She did not list Jack Hembree as a half brother as Sarah Jane did. She did list Mary as a sibling (other family members did not) who died in 1904.

    Monroe Hembree's application did not show any relationship to Abraham or Mahalia Hembree. He failed to show up for an appointment with an agent in Blue Ridge, Ga.

    Do yo want Margaret's application?

    Till next time, John R. and Barbara

    Subject: Re: CONDREY
    Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2001 9:45 AM

    A difficult problem. I've seen the posts by Esther Womack on the Condrey forum on this couple, and checked them against my records, but with no certainty.

    First, I doubt she was born in Hyde Co. I think Esther says she was married there. So far as I can tell, there were no Condry families recorded in Hyde Co. in any census until 1810. My earliest record in Hyde is the estate settlement of Richard Condry in 1806. You may have seen that; I posted the transcript on the Condra surname forum 2 Jan 2001, #112.

    The widow of Richard is Sarah, listed in the 1810 census of Hyde. The other Condrys, James and John, in the estate records, are not listed in the census of Hyde.

    However, there are a number of Condrys in adjoining Beaufort Co. dating from at least 1781, as shown in this record:

    US GenWeb Archives, 11/2/99

    Beaufort County Militia, 1781

    NC Division of Archives and History, Raleigh, NC. Contributed by Lida A. Overton and transcribed by Elizabeth Ross "A List of the Several Divisions of Affective Men in the Beaufort Ragiment of Militia Made the 20th of April 1781

    No. 3
    J
    ohn Condry George Condry

    Returned by William Brown, Colo. of the Beaufort Militia"

    And I believe that Dennis, the member of the Donelson Party at the Nashborough settlement of 1781, was in tidewater NC earlier than 1775. That is an inference from the evidence that he was in Kentucky in 1775 with other members of the group of adventurers who formed around Judge Henderson, the tidewater NC speculator who conceived the Transylvania scheme that led to the Nashborough settlement.

    My guess is that your Elizabeth is the daughter of one of these Beaufort families. In the absence of other evidence, I'd suggest as the most likely possibility that she could belong to the family of John, who I believe to be the one who was a signer of the Cumberland Compact. His signature can be seen in the image on the TN Archives website:

    http://www.state.tn.us/sos/statelib/techsvs/photos/compact4.htm

    We know John did not stay in the settlement, as Dennis did, because he is not listed among either the dead or alive who received land from the 1783 NC grant for the settlement, as Dennis did. My construction of the records is that John returned to NC, where he is found in the census of 1790, with Dennis, and in 1810 as a man of 45+, near three younger men (Dennis, William, and James) who are men of the generation of your Elizabeth. John appears to be the progenitor of the family of Condrys who stayed in the tidewater. Dennis and William, as you can see from the many postings on the surname forum, settled in East Tennessee, where there are numerous records of their activities.

    Elizabeth is a common Condry name, of course (my ggm was an Elizabeth Condry, descended from old William the Indian Spy, my 4ggf, through William's son Dennis and Dennis's son Lilburn). So it won't be easy to find proof of her parentage even if you find an Elizabeth mentioned in contemporary tidewater NC records. So far, I have not found a record of her.

    Good luck. I'll keep an eye out for more.

    Burgess Harrelson "Harrel" Byars (1779-1874), my 4th great grandfather (Dianne Armstrong)

    Harrel is the only listed Byars slave holder in 1860.

    1860 slave schedules:

    4 slaves: F52, M30, M26, F23

    The 52 yr. old I believe was Jude Byars and the 23 yr. old Nancy Byars her daughter.

    They last appear in 1880, Jude 72 and Nancy 39 in the home of Harrel's daughter Mary Byars Fuston.

    I have been able to trace them forward after 1880 or to identify the other 2.

    • Residence: 0___ 1880, DeKalb County, Tennessee

    Notes:

    Perry Green Magness married Mary Cantrell early in 1815; in 1816 he got the news of the death of William Magness. Perry Green apparently never went to North Carolina himself to see about his uncle William’s estate, but he made at least three different powers of attorney regarding it. The first two are recorded in Lincoln County, NC, Deed book 28, pages 37 and 686. He made one on 4 September 1816 in Warren County, Tennessee, giving power of attorney to Francis Alexander. The following year Perry Green had moved to Orange County, Indiana, where he lived for a year or more before moving back to Warren County, Tennessee.

    On May 24, 1817, (he had his 21st birthday on May 23) in Orange County, Indiana, Perrygreen Magness "son of George Magness Dec’d" gave power of attorney to Berryman Hicks of Rutherford County, North Carolina. (Berryman Hicks was married to Elizabeth Durham, sister of Perry Green’s mother.) A third power of attorney was recorded in Rutherford County, NC Deed Book 34, page 135, and is even more specific as to his relation to George Magness. It was made 4 December 1817 in Orange County, Indiana, by Perrygreen Magness, "son and lawful heir of George Magness, decd.," and gives authority to Berryman Hicks.

    Berryman Hicks had difficulty establishing Perry green as George’s legal heir. Perry Green never claimed to be George’s only child; he did claim to be his only legal heir. The Execution Docket of the Superior Court of Law and Equity in Lincoln County, North Carolina, shows that in October 1818 the heirs of William Magness petitioned for a division of the real estate. No division was made, however, and in October 1824 the case of Heirs of Wm. Magness vs. Perrigrene magness was brought to a jury, which found “that the said Perregrine Magness is the son and only heir at law of George Magness dec’d, a brother to Wm. Magness dec’d.” The real estate was ordered to be devided into seven parts, of which Perry Green Magness would receive one.

    Actually the seventh part went to Berryman Hicks, who had agreed to pay Perry Green Magness $1500 for Perry Green’s share of the estate if Berryman Hicks succeeded in establishing Perry Green’s claim. Difficulties must have arisen over that after Berryman Hicks died about 1842. In the North Carolina Archives, the Cleveland County Miscellaneous Files contain the suit of Hazael Hicks, admr. of Berryman Hicks, vs. John Roberts, admr. of William Magness. Within this suit is a deposition of Perry G. Magness, aged about 48 years, at Smithville, DeKalb Co., Tennessee 27 May 1844, stating that “I did transfer my interest in the estate of my uncle Wm. Magness deceased to the said Berryman Hicks about the year 1817 or 1818. We came to a settlement about the year 1825.” A second deposition was made by Perry G. Magness, aged about 51 years at Smithville, DeKalb County, Tennessee, on 17 July 1847, stating “I did sell and transfer my interest in said estate to Berryman Hicks for fifteen hundred dollars, provided he established my heirship in said estate.”

    With the $1500 , which was a considerable sum at the time, Perry Green Magness bought land and made investments and became a merchant. his sons and grandsons became merchants and bankers, and many of them prospered greatly. Whether Perry Green’s sister was given any of the money is not known; it is known that she was provided for in her old age by her brother Perry Green. Their mother Polly Durham magness, married in Warren County, Tennessee, about 1827 Benjamin Cantrell She died a few years later, between 1830 and 1840. The two children of George Magness and Polly Durham both lived in Warren and DeKalb Counties, Tennessee.

    Notes:

    Isaac was of the "Two-Seed-In-Spirit" Baptists...

    Reported in 1920...

    BAPTISTS, Two-Seed-in-the-Spirit, had their origin in the preaching and ultra-Calvinistic doctrines of Daniel Parker, a Baptist elder and preacher of Tennessee. Parker, who was ordained in 1806 in Tennessee became one of the strongest opponents of the organized work of the Church. In 1817 he moved to Illinois, where he continued his opposition to the work and organization of the regular Church for 19 years. Later he went to Texas. In various pamphlets (1826-29) Parker made public some very peculiar theories he held concerning the introduction and perpetuation of evil in the human race. According to these beliefs, God, when He created Adam and Eve, infused into them particles of Himself, thus making them altogether good; the devil corrupted them by infusing into them particles of himelf. Eve, by predestination, brought forth a certain number of good and a certain number of bad offsprings; and all her daughters after her were predestined to do likewise. The atonement, according to Parker, applies only to those born of the good seed, those born of the bad being absolutely lost. This Baptist sect is uncompromisingly opposed to "all human institutions." They are found in 21 States and have nearly 500 churches and nearly 13,000 members.

    Hi Cousin David.

    I've found a new cousin whose gg grandfather is John W Clonts, son of "Johnnie." She states her grandfather, John H. Simmons, told her that John William is a Jr and that his father was John William Clonts Sr. This supports the D.C. Clontz statement found in "The Annals of Upper Georgia Centered in Gilmer County" by George G. Ward" p. 221 that John W."s father was also named John W. I sent a copy to you several years ago.

    She also says that Sarah Jane's (sister of John W.) 1906 Cherokee application lists Christian Clonts and Peggy as her grandparents. If so, Christian and not George is our gg grandparent. I'll try to get a copy. She is asking if I think Christian is our gg grandfather and the brother of George. What do you think? Hate to lose George because we have some solid information on him thru his service and pension records. I thought these Cherokee applications would give some important information, but John W. and J. M. A, only spoke about Mahala's parents.

    This cousin is Janice ? and lives in Powder Springs, Georgia, just northwest of Atlanta, email is TennisClay. Calling her this weekend.

    Haven't talked with you in some time. Hope all is well.

    The best, John R. Clonts in California

    Notes for James M. Hembree

    His census ages present a huge difficulty:
    in 1880 he says he’s 88 (b.1792 SC) (Murray Co, GA)
    in 1870 he says he’s 77 (b. 1793 SC) (Murray Co, GA)
    in 1860 he says he’s 64 (b. 1796 SC) (Murray Co, GA)
    in 1850 he says he’s 50 (b. 1800 SC) (Hamilton Co, TN)
    in 1840 -- no record found
    in 1830 he says he’s 20-29 (b. 1801-1810) (Rutherford Co, NC)
    in 1820 he’s in the household of Abraham Hembree
    (Spartanburg, SC) a list of males besides Abraham:
    male b.1794-1802
    male b.1805-1810
    male b.1805-1810
    male b.1805-1810
    male b.1810-1820 grandson
    male b.1810-1820 grandson
    male b.1810-1820 grandson
    this list includes 3-4 grandsons and perhaps a son-in-law

    in 1810 the household of Abraham Hembree (Spartanburg, SC)
    presents this list of males besides Abraham:
    male b.1783-1794
    male b.1800-1810
    male b.1800-1810
    male b.1800-1810

    in 1800 the household of Abraham Hembree (Spartanburg, SC)
    presents this list of males besides Abraham:
    male b.1790-1799
    male b.1790-1799

    in 1790 the household of Abraham Hembree (Spartanburg, SC) has no males besides Abraham


    Since Abraham’s wife died before 1810, the 1810 census provides a final snapshot of his sons. We can take these sons: Ephraim (1796), Joel (1802), Reuben (1804) and Isaac(1806) and plug them into 1810. That means the son James would be the older of the sons b.1790-1794.

    But we have James Lee Hembree and James M. Hembree both claiming to be hat son. Assume that one of these is a grandson instead of a son. Following James Lee Hembree backwards from 1850 to 1840 to 1830 we see that his age in all three point to a birth period of 1788-1790. James Lee fits better as the older son. If we assume James M. is a grandson b.1809 the 1810 and 1820 census data make sense.

    How do we know Matilda is his mother? In the 1830 census Matilda Hembree, James M. Hembree, Isaac Hembree, Ephraim Hembree and Abraham Hembree are all listed as household heads in Rutherford County, North Carolina. Children of James M. said they were born in Rutherford County on their 1909 Cherokee applications. Matilda has a son b.1810-1815 in her household so it would not be difficult to imagine that James b.1800-1809 in the census could be her son
    as well. The Goucher Baptist Church records show that both James and Matilda were given letters of membership when they left to go to North Carolina. (James left as a member in good standing. Matilda left with a charge of being pregnant outside of wedlock.) The 1830 census shows a daughter was born c.1825. The selection of Matilda as the likely mother of James M. is based on this circumstantial evidence, while also eliminating almost every other scenario.

    Who is his father? Since he was admitted into church membership, it is doubtful that he was an illegitimate child. A descendant of this family believes that Matilda married a Joseph Hembree. There is a Joseph Hembree that fits the bill perfectly: right age (b.1779) and right location (Spartanburg, Rutherford County). Until another theory is presented, this one fits quite well.


    Who is buried in James Lee Hembree’s tomb?

    The Murray County Heritage by the Murray County Historical Society (Roswell : 1987) says “the James Lee Hembree grave is on the old church grounds near Hassler’s Chapel. . . . Emory Creek feeds Hassler’s Creek near Gilmer County.” (p.284, 287) But even the historical society has the two confused since I found James Lee with his son William in Union County, Illinois in 1870 and he would be much too old (age 80 in the census) to make a move. He apparently died there by 1871, because the son he was living with (William) moved to Missouri in 1871, having a child there. His other family members in Union County also moved to Missouri around that time. So James Lee Hembree probably died in Union County, Illinois. Unless there is some evidence to the contrary, it appears that James M. Hembree, who died on 30 April 1882 in Gilmer County, is buried in James Lee Hembree’s grave.

    "CALEB SWINDELL (SR.), son of JOHN SWINDELL, SR., was married to his first wife, KEZIAH _____, by 25 August 1767. We have been unable to indentify her parents. CALEB's will dated 26 November 1790, probated February Court 1791, mentions wife, ELIZABETH, and sons, CHRISTOPHER and CASON SWINDELL. His will dictated that the remaider of the estate should be equally divided between his children after the death of his wife, ELIZABETH.

    In a 1791 division of the remaider of the estate, his wife, ELIZABETH, received one-third and his heirs JESSE HARRIS, SR., THOMAS HARRIS, CHRISTOPHER SWINDELL, JAMES MASON, JESSE HARRIS, JR., ELIZABETH HARRIS, SUSANNA CARAWAN, JOHN BENSON, AND CASON SWINDELL received the remaining two-thirds divided into equal lots.

    Since we know that CASON and CHRISTOPHER were his sons, this equal distribution indicates that the others were his daughters and sons-in-law in right of their wives."

    Notes:

    27 Nov 2006:

    Hello, Cousin David, (always good to meet family!)

    Raleigh was not able to document Elizabeth’s parentage...just draw conclusions based on circumstantial evidence. He left us with possibilities, but nothing definitive. Here are the quoted excerpts from his e-mail that I have used in my database. I check the genforum periodically to look for updates on his work, since I have been unable to travel to NC to research myself. When I retire, maybe?

    Raleigh Condra Fields, an extensive Condra researcher, states that he believes Elizabeth is the daughter of Richard (d. 1806) and Sarah. "The will shows a girl about Elizabeth's age in the Hyde area at the right time. I believe that they come down from Dennis son of Michael, son of Dennis and Alice in Lancaster, VA." (20 Feb. 2005) "Richard's will did not name names. Sarah was the wife. He died 1806. I did not have another family living right where Elizabeth was listed as a child in the census. There was a James and John who bought items from the will/estate. They either all descend from Dennis and Lucresha Price, possibly son of Michael of the Lancaster, VA Condrys. Or, this is a group that came from the Henrico settlements. I had a John, James and Thomas in 1768 in Rowan, NC." (25 Feb 2005)

    "I have a Michael 1720's onto NC...sons of his son, John, Richard, Dennis, William, M. Charity." (4 Dec. 2004)

    In further discourse, Raleigh states:

    ...the 1790 census of NC shows Dennis and John CONDRY in Beaufort, and William In Tyrell, so Richard in Hyde is not far away. We don't know for sure whether these are the Tennessee group, since we know that men of these names were also involved in multiple land deals in East Tennesseee in the 1780-90's. but some people of this period were much more mobile than we might imagine, and it's easy to find records showing that some of these adventurers would park their families a safe distance from the frontier while they travelled back and forth making the required improvements to claim land, returning home to file claims, gather crops, etc. And we know that John and Dennis were involved in the Robertson-Donelson expedition to acquire land in Transylvania (later Kentucky) and Nashborough settlement, and that those expeditions began from North Carolina. So until I have proof that they were NOT, I assume that this trio of CONDRYS in the Tidewater are the same men as the East Tennessee trio of Dennis, William, and John.

    Which is your line, David? Mine is through Cason’s and Elizabeth’s son C.C. and Eliza WEBB>George Washington and Eliza Ann KEATHLEY>Herschel and Lela PITMAN. I would love to compare info.

    Hello Again, Elizabeth shows up in Beaufort/Hyde as a Condry. We suspect that she is a descendent of Dennis, who was an Irish/Manx sea captain. Into America in Massachusetts and then possibly into NC Tidewater. I have a female about her age living in Richard and Sarah's house in 1806. We have a lot of details on this family and it appears that there were two branches, one from the Mass area and one from VA. Both very early into America.

    There is also a possibility of two other older possibilities for parenting, that we have not been able to trace, one a Michael who appears in Salisbury in NC. No records after 1760s and a John, early 1700s twin of a Catherine from Lancaster/Northumberland Co.,VA.

    No records have been found to date for these two known men from the original Dennis and Alice pairing early 1700s.

    Keep in Touch. Rawleigh Condra Fjeld

    Hello, Cousin, Well we have just begun to unravel the N.C. early Condrys. There was a Michael and Richard mid 1700s in N.C. and many later cousins. Also, a Claiborne from very early times. We have most of the Va and Tn and Ky Condrys sorted through, but the early N.C. group has yet to be sorted. We are gathering all tid bits from N.C. Condrys in order to begin matching them. The Condrys came to America mid 1600s to 1670s in Lancaster, Cty Va and there is much info on them from heavy research for the last 15 years.

    I will put your notes with the work and maybe at this years reunion someone will be able to add to it. Best Rawleigh Condra Fjeld

    John's signature, by the way, can be seen on the website of the TN state archives. John also appears in this record:
    US GenWeb Archives, 11/2/99
    Beaufort County Militia, 1781
    NC Division of Archives and History, Raleigh, NC.
    Contributed by Lida A. Overton and transcribed by Elizabeth Ross
    "A List of the Several Divisions of Affective Men in the Beaufort
    Regiment of Militia Made the 20th of April 1781
    No. 3
    John Condry
    George Condry
    Returned by William Brown, Colo.
    of the Beaufort Militia"

    The presence of another Condry in Beaufort--George Condry--complicates the possibilities. If all these guys were brothers or cousins, then the Dennis of Barbour Co, AL could be the son of almost any of them.

    Darlene,

    I see that you have a Moore line in Orange Co. ; I do too!

    The tradition is that my third greatgrandfather, Jesse Alexander Moore ( Scots-Irish b ca. 1745 N.C, and died ca. 1820 White Co., TN) was living with a Cherokee family in Orange Co., N.C. and married their daughter, Denta. They and their son, Samuel A. Moore (b 8 Oct., 1762 N.C d 1Dec.,1845 White Co., TN) migrated to White Co., TN

    Do you know anything about my Moores'--possibly Alexanders', too?

    Please tell me about your Moores' in case I run across anything which may help you.

    Thank you so much Darlene! Nancy

    William Fisher was the second son by the second wife of John Fisher (Elizabeth). He was born in Rutherford County,North Carolina, and he moved to White County, Tennessee, around 1809. He settled across the Caney Fork River from where his father, John, had settled in what is now DeKalb County, Tennessee. He and his wife, Nancy Chisam Fisher, spent the remainder of their lives on the homestead at the base of Hickory Nut Mountain. They raised nine children there.

    The genealogical data of the Nicholas Fisher family compiled by E.E.(Elisha Edmond) Webb in December, 1930, indicates that William and his wife Nancy were buried in the Fisher Grave Yard in present day DeKalb County, Tennessee. There do not appear to be markers for their graves.

    Recently, while tracking down one of the many Johns, I ran across the following information in the records of Madison Co, AL.

    Letters of Administration for the estate of one John Chisolm were issued to a Lazarus Vann on 8/16/1830. These letters were issued with the consent of the widow, Sarah. John died intestate. Filtering thru the notes and letters, I found the heirs to be: Sarah (widow), John Chisolm Jr., William Chisolm Sr, Isham Pullen, Alfred Marrow, Andrew Burnside, and Nancy Fisher. Nancy Fisher, and John Chisum had a letter written from White Co, Tn to the judge of probate requesting that slaves Hannah (old woman) and Dolly (girl), part of the estate of John Chisolm, be sold and the proceeds of the sale be divided among the heirs. A LeRoy Chisum, who apparently lived in Madison Co, Al attached his concurrence. (Sarah, Nancy, and LeRoy can not write). LeRoy's concurrence is dated April or Aug. 18, 1832. One William L. Chisam charged the estate 2.00 for bringing the slaves to Huntsville on 7/2/1832. Around this time, Sarah, the widow, had a letter written to the judge of probate asking that the judge provide her with the status of the settlement of the estate, stating that she had not received a single penny from the estate of her husband and that she had sent a letter to the administrator but not heard from him. She also stated that her husband had promised that she would be able to keep the slaves to "wate" on her during her old age. Soon after the letter was received, the judge ordered the sherriff to have Mr Van bring all records of the estate to court. No mention of the disposition or fate of Mr Vann is mentioned. I recoginized this John to be "Blind John" because several years ago I had read of his daughter's troubles in applying for his Revoloutionary War Pension.

    "Blind John" is listed, in most accounts, as having died in Perry Co, AL but it is apparent he died in Madison Co, AL It could be that he was a resident of Perry Co and happened to die in Madison Co. That may be why $2.00 was charged to bring the slaves to Huntsville. No records I have seen show the first names of John's son in laws, Burnside and Pullen. I think this record in Madison Co makes those name clear. Alfred Marrow may be another son in law.

    The file in Madison Co, AL has the estate sale, listing all property sold and to whom. There are also several slips of paper where Mr Vann made charges to the estate for "services" and one page which was faded and unreadable.

    There was no charge for transportation of the body so I assume John was buried in Madison Co or someone transported his body free of charge to "wherever". There is a charge of $2.00 for a casket.
    Hope this is helpful to you "Blind John" folks. BTW the spelling of the name Chisolm is all over the lot. Chisolm,Chisum,Chism,Chisam,etc. Seems that none could read or write.

    W.L. Chisholm
