He fought in the battle of Black River Ridge and Belford's Bridge. He encloses his discharge, dated 10 Nov. 1779. A schedule of his property is as follows: 69 acres valued at $343, 2 horses, 2 cows, and calves, 5 or 6 hogs, 3 beds, furniture knives, forks and plates. Total value $485. He is indebted for the costs of a suit lately settled the Circuit Court of Franklin County, Solomon SANDERS vs. Heirs of Poindexter PAYNE, in the sum of $75 and $40. His occupation has always been that of a farmer but is now unable to work. His family consist of his wife; Mary aged 54 daughters Nancy, 18, Sally, 16, and sons Jacob 12, and Jordan, 11, all of whom are dependent on him for support.

27 Nov. 1832
Solomon SANDERS aged 92 states he was born in Craven County, N.C.
in 1740 but the records of his birth were lost many years ago. He has lived in Virginia and Kentucky, but has lived in this county for at least 20 years. He enlisted in Craven County in Nov. 1776 under Capt. Henry NUTT and Col. HARGETT. He served at a camp in Wilmington, N.C. when he filed for a pension in 1826 he believed he had been in the Continental Line. His second enlistment was in 1781 under Capt. Reedsdale MCDANIEL and his unit was disbanded after the capture of CORNWALLIS. Rev George ROBERTS and John JONES vouch for SANDERS.

Declaration for widows pension claim made by Mary Sanders
On 16 Dec. 1852 Grundy County, Tennessee Mary Sanders, aged 83, states her husband, pensioner Solomon SANDERS died 29 Nov. 1837. They were married May 1791 in Powell's Valley in what is now Campbell County, Tennessee, at the home of James ALLY by William GIPSON. Mary removed from Powell's Valley to Kentucky and from there to Grundy County, where she has lived for 45 years, and where her husband died. She states she has employed two agents to file her application but was never granted a pension, so now applies again. She appoints Taze NEWMAN her attorney in the matter.

Solomon MEEKS
aged 57 states he knew Solomon and Mary SANDERS form his recollection. From the time of Solomon's death in 1837 his widow has continued to reside on their farm. She has raised a family of Children; the oldest if now living would be about 60 years of age, as he was about three years older than affiant.

Silas TUCKER
aged 75 stated he first knew Solomon and Mary SANDERS 47 years ago, as man and wife. Mary continues to reside at he place where Solomon died.


Deposition of Thomas Sanders, 16 Dec 1852 for his Aunt Mary Sanders who is applying for a Widows Pension: Thomas SANDERS aged 62 states he knew Solomon and Mary SANDERS from his earliest recollection. This was in the state of Kentucky. Thomas moved with his brother from the state of North Carolina to Kentucky when Thomas was "so young that he could not walk and keep up with the wagons." Solomon and Mary SANDERS were at that time already married and living in Kentucky. Mary continues to reside on the place settled by Solomon.

Deposition of Southey Sanders 16 Dec 1852 for his Auntr Mary Sanders, who is applying for a widows pension. Luthey (?) [sic Southey] SANDERS aged 74 states he has known Solomon and Mary SANDERS since he was a boy. His mother was a widow living in Craven County, N.C., when his uncle Solomon came to where his mother lived and moved them to Kentucky where his own family lived. "And three for the first time he saw his aunt Mary SANDERS" This was in 1792. At that time he was told by his uncle that they had been married in Powell's Valley some time prior to Solomon's journey to North Carolina. He further stated he lived with Solomon and Mary SANDERS for several years in Kentucky. He declares that nearly 50 years ago they all, his mother and Solomon SANDERS and his family moved to what is now Grundy County.


30 June 1853 Winchester, Tenn.
Taze NEWMAN [attorney for Mary Sanders] to Pension Office.
The office should not have refused Mary SANDERS' application due to like of proof of service. The law passed in 1848 insures that the husband having drawn a pension is proof enough.

ABOUT THE PETER TURNEY REGIMENT

After the Feb. 1861 secession meeting, Peter TURNEY organized a company in Winchester, which was later to become "C" Company. Four other companies from Franklin, Lincoln, Coffee and Grundy counties were formed after the fall of Fort Sumter.

TURNEY'S 1st was organized at Winchester, TN, 21 Apr. 1861 and was mustered into service at Lynchburg, VA, 8 May 1861. On 17 May, they traveled by rail to Richmond where they were drilled by the cadets from the Virginia Military Institute. On June 1, they moved to Harper's Ferry and in July to the locale of Manassas where they were a part of the 3rd Brigade, JOHNSTON'S Division. Organization of the Tennessee Brigade was announced on 8 Mar. 1862. The third Tennessee regiment in this brigade was always the First Tennessee Regiment, but not always the same First. Until Feb., 1862 MANEY'S First Tennessee Volunteers was in the brigade, but when it was ordered back to Tennessee, it was succeeded by TURNEY'S 1st Confederate Infantry sometimes called the 1st Tennessee Regiment, Provisional Army, CSA. The Battle of Fredricksburg was fought in Dec. 1862. W.A. MILES sent an account of the wounded and killed to the newspaper. The company surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse 9 Apr. 1865. Isham G. HARRIS, formerly of Franklin County, was Governor of the State during the first part of the war (3 Nov. 1857-3 Mar. 1862) and Peter TURNEY served as Governor of the State of Tennessee from 16 Jan. 1893 to 21 Jan. 1897.

The 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was first organized at Camp Trousdale, Tennessee, on December 16th, 1861. After the 44th suffered heavy losses at Shiloh, the regiment was consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry, a regiment which had also suffered heavily at that battle, and the two regiments were then reorganized and designated as the 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry.

The 44th Infantry then fought in all the battles of the Army of Tennessee through Chickamauga. After that battle, the regiment was assigned to Longstreet's Corps, and participated in the Knoxville campaign. It's final duties involved long months in and around the defenses of Petersburg, Virginia. On 2 April,1865, the 44th's position in the lines was over-run, and most of the regiment was captured. The few that escaped surrendered with Lee at Appomattox.

It is the purpose of the authors of these pages that they be dedicated as a memorial to the officers and men of the 44th Regiment, some of whom were our ancestors, and all of whom deserve to be recognized and remembered for their service to their home, their state, and their nation. It is also hoped that these pages will serve as a reliable reference for those persons who may be researching their own family histories, as well as those with an interest in the lives and honourable deeds of the Confederate Soldier.

The following history is taken from "Tennesseans in the Civil War" as compiled by the Civil War Centennial Commission, 1964. The 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was organized at Camp Trousdale December 16, 1861; consolidated with 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry April 18, 1862 to form 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry; reorganized May 5, 1862; field consolidation with 25th Tennessee Infantry October, 1863; paroled at Appomattox Courthouse April 9, 1865.

Robert Oliver, Co. "K". A consolidation of "B" and "C" of 44th. Some of the companies bore different letters in the interval between the first consolidation and the final organization with election of regimental officers. The letters shown are those used after the final reorganization. Shortly after organization the regiment moved to Camp Hardee, Bowling Green, Kentucky, where it was placed in Brigadier General S. A. M. Wood's Brigade, along with the 7th Alabama, 5th, 7th, 8th, and a battalion from the 9th Arkansas Infantry Regiments, and the 3rd Mississippi Infantry Battalion. Following the fall of Fort Donelson February 16, 1862, the brigade fell back through Nashville to Murfreesboro, where on February 23, 1862, the brigade was reported as composed of the following units: 7th, 16th Alabama, 8th Arkansas, battalion from 9th Arkansas, 27th, 44th, 55th Tennessee Infantry Regiments, the 3rd Mississippi Battalion, two batteries, and Avery's Georgia Cavalry. The brigade was placed in Brigadier General Gideon J. Pillow's Division, but shortly Brigadier General T. C. Hindman took command of the division. As part of this division the brigade was engaged in the Battle of Shiloh April 6-7, 1862. General Wood, in his report, stated the 44th entered the battle with 250 muskets. Doctor Noblitt, Assistant Surgeon for the regiment, said in his account in Lindsley's Annals, that the 44th entered the engagement with 470 men in line, and at roll call Tuesday morning, April 9, 120 answered to their names. Colonel McDaniel and Lieutenant Colonel Shied were both wounded, and Major Johnson had been absent from the regiment for some time because of illness. As a result, on April 18, 1862, the 44th was permanently consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) regiment which had also suffered heavy losses, to form the 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment Consolidated, or the 44th Tennessee Infantry, 2nd Organization. Field officers appointed by General Hardee were Colonel John H. Kelly, 3rd Arkansas Battalion; Lieutenant Colonel John L.McEwen, from 55th Tennessee; Major Henrv C. Ewin (or Ewen) from 55th Tennessee. After company officers were elected, they were authorized by General Bragg to choose their own field officers, and John S. Fulton, of the 44th, was elected to. replace Colonel Kelly, but McEwen was continued as lieutenant colonel and Ewin as major. Major Ewin was mortally wounded at the Battle of Murfreesboro December 31, 1862, and Captain G. M. Crawford succeeded him as Major. One company report stated Andrew Ewing was chosen major, and Doctor Noblitt listed William Ewing, but it is believed these were errors, as no Ewing was found in the muster rolls of the 44th Consolidated Regiment, and it is believed Henry C. Ewin is the correct name. On April 26 the 44th Consolidated was reported with 489 electives, in Wood's Brigade, composed of the 16th Alabama, 8th Arkansas, 33rd Mississippi, 27th, 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiments, Avery's Georgia Dragoons, and the Jefferson Light Artillery. The brigade fell back to Tupelo Mav 29; moved from Tupelo on July 27 for Chattanooga, where Brigadier General Bushrod R, Johnson took command of the brigade which was placed in Major General Simon B. Buckner's Division. It moved up through the Sequatchie Valley for General Bragg's invasion of Kentucky; was present at the surrender of Munfordville, Kentucky; and engaged at the Battle of Perryville, October 8, 1862. At this time, the brigade consisted of the 5th (9th) Confederate, 17th, 23rd, 25th, 37th, and 44th Tennessee Regiments, plus Darden's Battery. The 44th had 43 casualties in this battle. On November 22, 1862, Johnson's Brigade was reported as consisting of the 17th, 23rd, 37th and 44th Tennessee Regiments. The 17th, 23rd, and 44th continued together until the end of the war. In the Battle of Murfreesboro, December 31, 1862, Johnson's Brigade was in Major General Pat R. Cleburne's Division, and had been increased by the addition of the 25th Tennessee Regiment. The 44th reported 509 men engaged, 174 killed, wounded and missing, including 19 out of 28 officers. The regiment went into winter quarters at Tullahoma, remained there until April 22, 1863, when it moved to Wartrace; from there on May 24 to Fairfield; and at Hoover's Gap June 24-25, 1863 was in Major General A. P. Stewart's Division, Johnson's Brigade, in support of General William B. Bate's Brigade. Johnson's Brigade formed the rear guard of Major General William J. Hardee's Corps as it fell back in July from Tullahoma to Chattanooga, and the 44th was stationed around Loudon and Charleston until earlv in September. At Loudon, on July 12, 1863, General Johnson reported that 104 men from the 44th had been left in Middle Tennessee by desertion and otherwise. From Charleston the regiment moved to Chickamauga, Georgia on September 8, and was engaged in the Battle of Cbickamauga September 19-20, 1863, as part of General Johnson's Provisional Division. Here Colonel Fulton was in command of the brigade, and the 44th reported 113 casualties out of 294 engaged, including Lieutenant Colonel McEwen who was wounded. Prior to the battle 56 barefoot men had been sent to the rear. On October 31, at Cherokee Springs, still in Stewart's Division, the brigade was reported as composed of the 17th/23rd, and 25tb/44th Tennessee Regiments. Here began a field consolidation with the 25th which was to continue for the duration, although separate muster rolls were maintained. On November 22, the brigade was transferred to Buckner's Division, Lieutenant General Longstreet's Corps, for the invasion of East Tennessee. On November 30, the 63rd Tennessee was reported as a member of the brigade, and these five regiments constituted Johnson's Brigade until the consolidation of Johnson's and Archer's brigades in January 1865. The 44th was present at the assault on Fort Sanders, Knoxville, November 29, 1863; moved to Rogersville; fought at Bean's Station December 14; moved to Morristown January, 1864; to Dandridge January 15; to Lick Creek February 29; to Midway March 1; from Midway on March 28 to Greeneville, to Jonesboro, to Zollicoffer (now Bluff City), to Vance's Store; to Abingdon, Virginia; left Abingdon April 22 for Richmond; fought at Walthall Junction, Swift Creek and Drewry's Bluff in May, 1864; at Petersburg June 15; and on June 18 was in the trenches outside of Petersburg. In May, 1864 it had been transferred to Beauregard's Department of North Carolina and South Virginia, Major General Robert F. Hoke's Division, with Colonel Fulton in command of the brigade. On May 9, 1864, 125 men from the 44th, under Lieutenant Francis M. Kelso, were detailed to man the heavy artillery at Fort Clifton, and engaged in a battle with Federal gunboats which they drove off with considerable damage. On May 16, at Drewry's Bluff, Lieutenant Colonel McEwen and Major McCarver were mortally wounded, and command of the 25th/44th fell upon Captain William N. James. In this engagement, he reported 95 casualties out of 250 electives engaged. Major Crawford also later died of wounds received here. On June 16, Lieutenant Kelso and his company captured a number of prisoners and three stands of colors, but on June 22 the colors of the 44th were captured by the 48th Pennsylvania Infantry at Petersburg. On June 30, Colonel Fulton was struck by a shell, and mortally wounded. Company reports show the regiment at Signal Hill, Virginia, August 13, 1864; stationed at Chaffin's Farm September and October; near Petersburg November-December, 1864. No further details of the regiment's activities were found, but in January, 1865, Johnson's and Arcber's Brigades were consolidated under Colonel (later brigadier general) William McComb, formerly of the 14th Tennessee. The lst Confederate, 7th and 14th Tennessee Regiments, and the 2nd Marvland Battalion were the additions which formed the consolidated brigade. On February 28, 1865 Captain Jonathan E. Spencer was reported in command of the 25th/44th. The regiment, as part of this brigade, Major General Heth's Division, Lieutenant General A. P. Hill's Corps, was surrendered and paroled with Lee's Army at Appomattox Courthouse April 9, 1865.

Original source wording: Some History
The original marriage books of Hamilton County were kept in Harrison, the county seat, until 1870. Eighteen volumes of the Hamilton County Register, along with other county books, were seized by Federal troops during the Civil War, at the home of Anthony Moore, where they had been taken for safe keeping and were taken to military headquarters in Chattanooga to await orders for disposal. With the exception of Book I, which has never been found, they were eventually returned to the county. All records prior to 1857 were lost either during the Civil War or disappeared during one of the seven moves and two fires. The marriage licenses from February 24, 1857, to September 9, 1863 are recorded in what is now Book I of the Hamilton County marriage books. The records break off abruptly September 4, 1863 and do not resume until April 4, 1864. Chattanooga was under military occupation from September 1863, and there were no civil officials in the city. Charles W. Vinson, reportedly the only county official serving, filled all county offices vacated by other county officials who had entered the Confederate Army.

These marriage records have been transcribed from microfilm copies of the original marriage books of Hamilton County Tennessee. The microfilm records are now kept at the Hamilton County Courthouse and the Chattanooga -- Hamilton County Bicentennial Library. The original books give the name of the bride and groom, the date the license was issued, the person who performed the ceremony, and the date the marriage took place. This transcription contains the names of the bride and groom, the date the marriage was performed and the book and page number of the original record.

Within the margins of the records were often additional notes written in by the person recording the information. The words "Don't Publish" were often written across the names of the bride and groom to indicate that the clerk was not to publish the license in the local newspaper. The term "colored" was used at this time in history to denote the persons marrying were of color. This is referenced in these transcriptions by ( C ). Frequently the actual date of the marriage was not recorded for what ever reason. The marriage either took place somewhere else, the couples changed their minds and the marriage was not performed, the minister forgot to return the license, or the clerk simply forgot to record the date. In cases where the date of the marriage was not recorded, the date the license was issued has been substituted. This is referenced by (NR). A few license were marked "Returned Not Used", meaning the marriage was not performed. This is noted by (RU). Books 3-1/2 and 4 contain several duplicate records. In some cases, the names and dates recorded were not identical. These discrepancies are denoted with an asterisk (*).

The names contained in these records were transcribed as they appeared on the microfilm copies of the marriage books. No attempt was made to correct names that were obviously misspelled. At times, the transcription was very difficult and every attempt was made to transcribe the records correctly, however with over 18,000 individuals, mistakes may have occurred. If you notice a mistake please let me know. Dennis C. Wilson 2001

"Long before the economic blight of the depression descended on the Nation, millions of our people were living in wastelands of want and fear. Men and women too old and infirm to work either depended on those who had but little to share, or spent their remaining years within the walls of a poorhouse . . .The Social Security Act offers to all our citizens a workable and working method of meeting urgent present needs and of forestalling future need . . .

Notepad Social Security Numbers' State Codes

Group Picture

The first Social Security card was issued 1 December 1936 and on 1 January 1937, U.S. workers began acquiring "credits" toward old-age benefits. About 35 million numbers were assigned to workers who qualified at that time. (The above photograph was taken about 1939 in Oklahoma).



A GUIDE TO USING SSDI

One of the largest and easiest to access databases used for genealogical research is the Social Security Death Index (SSDI). Its information can be utilized to help you learn more about your ancestors, as well as your aunts, uncles and cousins.

Clues and facts from the SSDI often can be used to further genealogical research by enabling you to locate a death certificate, find an obituary, discover cemetery records and track down probate records.

Notepad As marvelous a finding aid as it is, the SSDI does not include the names of everyone, even if they had a Social Security number (SNN). If relatives or the funeral home did not report the death to the Social Security Administration, or if the individual died before 1962 (when the records were computerized) then they probably will not appear in this database. The omission of an individual in this index does not indicate the person is still living. It simply means that there was no report of the person's death to Social Security Administration.

When using the Social Security Death Index, in addition to the date of birth and date of death, there are three possible places included as well:

* State of issuance (where a person then lived and applied or the state in which the office that issued their social security number was located).
* Residence at time of death (this is really the address of record, but not necessarily where they lived or died).
* Death benefit (where the lump sum death benefit [burial allowance] was sent).

Notepad According to the Social Security Administration (SSA):

The nine-digit SSN is composed of three parts:
Dot The first set of three digits is called the Area Number
Dot The second set of two digits is called the Group Number
Dot The final set of four digits is the Serial Number

Notepad Area Number

The Area Number is assigned by the geographical region. Prior to 1972, cards were issued in local Social Security offices around the country and the Area Number represented the state in which the card was issued. This did not necessarily have to be the state where the applicant lived, since a person could apply for their card in any Social Security office. Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant's mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence. Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the state of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.

Notepad Generally, numbers were assigned beginning in the Northeast and moving westward. So people whose cards were issued in the East Coast states have the lowest numbers and those on the West Coast have the highest numbers.

Notepad (Complete list of the geographical number assignments.) By SSA.

Notepad The state of issuance (this is not necessarily the state of residence at the time of issuance) can be verified by looking at the Social Security number itself. The next two digits of the number are a code used to track fraudulent numbers. The last four digits are randomly assigned.

580 (Vir. Is.; PR)

586 (Guam, Am. Samoa, Phil. Islands)

700-728 (RR Retirement Board - All States)



Notepad Beware of making assumptions about the state of residence at time of death. The one listed as "Last Residence" (more properly should be called "address of record") in SSDI is not necessarily the place of death. This was brought home when researching an individual who died while on vacation in Florida. His "last residence" shows up as New Hampshire, which was his legal residence (or address of record) at the time, but that is not where he died. Consider the possibility that a person might have had two official residences also; many "snowbirds" do.

Notepad Read the search results carefully. The actual place of death is not shown in the SSDI. Some records show where "last benefit" was sent, but that is not necessarily the place of death or the deceased's address of record either. "Last Benefit" only refers to the payment of the lump sum death benefit (a burial allowance of about $250 that went to the surviving spouse).

Notepad Keep in mind that ZIP codes given are those that existed at the time of the reported death and are not necessarily correct or the same as today's. ZIP codes have changed through the years.

Notepad Do not assume that the state in which the number was issued was the state of birth or even the state of residency at the time (see above).

Notepad Abbreviations. The following abbreviations or codes, which appear in some records in the "Last Residence" box, usually in parentheses, are internal codes used by SSA and do not mean anything to researchers. Ignore them.
(72) (PE)
(FO) (HC)
(VA)

Notepad (VA) does not stand for
Virginia or Veterans' Administration



Notepad Reasons you might not find someone in the SSDI

Dot Social Security officially was begun in 1937, with some payments being paid as early as 1940. However, the Social Security Death Index is the computerized index to deaths reported and/or death benefits paid out starting in 1962. The SSDI includes a few pre-1962 entries, but the great majority of those included in this index are from 1962 through the present time.

DotWhile the limitations of dates may exclude your family member, other reasons that your ancestor may not be included in the SSDI might have to do with his or her occupation or lack thereof.

DotPrior to the 1960s, farmers, housewives, government employees, non-employed individuals, and those with a separate retirement plan might not have had a Social Security number. It was not until 1988 that all children had to have Social Security numbers.



Notepad The "Application for a Social Security Number" is commonly referred to as the SS-5. In addition to the SSDI, you may find your ancestor's Social Security number in other ways, especially on death certificates. While it may seem like you are recreating the wheel to request the SS-5 form, there are times that this can be the only proof you will have for an ancestor's birth. For instance, for those ancestors born in the 1860s to 1880s who immigrated to the United States, it can difficult to pinpoint their place of birth. On the SS-5 it was required that the applicant supply complete birth information. This means more than just the country of birth, as is usually found on census and death records. Moreover, the maiden name of the applicant's mother was requested, often critical information for a family historian.

Notepad To request a photocopy of the original application for Social Security Card (SS-5), find the particular record of interest and let RootsWeb generate a printer-ready letter addressed to the Social Security Administration for you. Be sure to include the name of the individual, the Social Security number, date and place of death. You will need to include a check or money order for these records --- currently $27 if you have the Social Security number, $29 without the number. See chart below. The process of obtaining this information usually takes several months, so be patient.

Notepad Initially people relied heavily upon the 1880 and 1900 federal census to obtain proof of their births (that's why these enumerations were Soundexed --- a special index based on sound rather than spelling of a surname). Many delayed birth certificates were filed in order to prove age for Social Security purposes.

How to Correct Errors
in the SSDI

RootsWeb does not create, edit or correct information found in the Social Security Death Index. This database is created by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you believe that SSA has listed incorrectly someone as deceased (or has incorrect dates/data in the file), you should contact the local Social Security Office. It will be necessary to provide acceptable proof to have the error(s) corrected.

Notepad You can use RootsWeb's Post-em notes to indicate that your records differ from what SSA has, but this will not change the database.




Train

Railroad workers were enrolled in the same Social Security program, but from 1937 to 1963 they had numbers ranging between 700 and 728 as the first three digits. In 1964 their numbers began to reflect the same geographic location as other workers. Some railroad workers received Social Security benefits, but some did not. However, it is wise to check the SSDI in any case.

Notepad The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board was created in the 1930s, and has records dating back to 1937, but they exist only for those whose employers were covered under the Railroad Retirement Act. You can obtain information about deceased individuals for genealogical purposes. The records are arranged by Social Security number. If you do not know the number, provide as much identifying information as you have. Currently there is a $21 nonrefundable fee for a search in these records.

Online GRC Index
NATIONAL INDEX
GENEALOGICAL RECORDS COMMITTEE
REPORTS, DAR LIBRARY


The DAR's Genealogical Records Committee and Preservation of Historic Records

From its foundation in 1890, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has had as one of its primary purposes the preservation of historic sites and resources. The collection of genealogical records and their preservation for future generations of Americans has always been in the forefront of the DAR's efforts.

Beginning in the 1910s, the DAR made a concerted effort to have members transcribe previously unpublished records of genealogical value to assist both the staff genealogists, potential members and the public. In 1913, the DAR established the Genealogical Research Committee (subsequently renamed the Genealogical Records Committee) to coordinate this nation-wide attempt to save historical records. The result has been nearly 17,000 typescripts of records from across the country. These volumes are referred to collectively as the Genealogical Records Committee Reports, for the DAR's national committee responsible for their production. They represent one of the most important and unique segments of the collection of the DAR Library in Washington, D.C., where the entire "national" collection is located. State sets of these reports may be found in various libraries within each respective state. A portion of these volumes was microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah in 1970-1972, but over half of the present collection has not been microfilmed.

These typescripts contain a tremendous amount of unique genealogical material, much of it gleaned from gravestones, family Bibles, and personal collections. Members gather together information accessible to them where they live, through family connections, or in their own genealogical papers. When a member has material she wishes to submit, she presents it to her chapter chairman, who in turn sends it on to the state chairman. The latter is responsible for assembling the report for that state each year incorporating materials which have come from the membership and chapters. Many states submit more than one volume each year. In the course of a year, approximately 300 new reports arrive at the GRC office of the DAR Library for addition to the collection.



INDEXING THE GRC REPORTS

Many of these individual volumes contain an internal index at the end of the book. This has not always been the case, however, and having an index in each book, while very important, only provides access to the information contained therein when someone picks up the particular book and looks at it. Another factor complicating the use of these reports is the fact that materials from members often come from records that members have which relate to historical families from elsewhere in the country. For example, a member in Montana might have a Bible record from Vermont that has been in her family for generations. Or, a member from Arkansas may have genealogical information on her ancestors who moved west from Virginia. In each case the submission of records would appear in the Montana and Arkansas volumes from the current year. Short of going through all 17,000 volumes of GRC Reports, one would have a very difficult time locating these sources.

To remedy this situation, a grassroots project began a few years ago to start creating state-wide indexes for each state's set of GRC Reports. The work began in Virginia, and then in Maryland and West Virginia, with a few members volunteering their time and using SkyIndex software to create these extremely valuable finding aids. The member who indexed Maryland, moved home to Oregon and has since completed an index for that state's set. Washington State started a project to index its set and is nearly finished. The Virginia member, who spearheaded the indexing of the Old Dominion's set, completed Kentucky next and moved on to Delaware. Others have joined in around the country.

In 2001, the President General, Linda Tinker Watkins, incorporated the indexing of the GRC Reports into her larger "President General's Project" to create databases, indexes and finding aids for many DAR materials. Presently, in the summer of 2002, dozens of members across the country are working to index the reports for their states under the direction of the National Chairman, Genealogical Records Committee, and in conjunction with the staffs of the DAR Library and the Information Systems Department. Portions of Florida, Iowa, New York and Nebraska have already arrived. Many other states' sets are being indexed. All indexers are volunteers utilizing specific guidelines and the same indexing software. Upon receipt of new indexes, DAR staff merge them into the evolving national index.

The result of this enormous effort is the creation of the first version of the DAR Library's "National Index to the Genealogical Records Committee Reports." Initially, only the indexes for a few states will encompass this index, but it is a wonderful start. As new indexes arrive in electronic form, the staff at DAR works to incorporate them into the national index. Images of the actual text of these volumes are not available, however; emphasis is presently on creation of this national index, a project which will take a few years to accomplish.



TREATMENT OF THE GRC SETS IN OTHER LIBRARIES

The state societies and organizations within the DAR have often placed copies of their GRC Reports in libraries in their own state. Some of these state collections are complete, while others are fragmentary or scattered in several places. The DAR Library does not have an inventory of these state materials nor an awareness of where these sets are all located.

In some cases, the recipient library has classified the individual volumes of their state DAR's GRC Reports as individual volumes and placed them throughout the collection in the appropriate subject category. In others, the library has kept them together and assigned each book volume numbers. If the DAR Library learned that the latter had taken place, it tried to obtain a list of those volume numbers and assigned them to the set in Washington, DC. Most sets, however, did not have consistant volume numbers.

The DAR Library considers the GRC Reports as a serial and strongly urges other libraries with these materials to do the same. From year to year, each new volume or volumes receive(s) the next volume number in the sequence. Retention of these volume numbers will facilitate use of these books in state sets in conjunction with the DAR Library's National Index on-line. Disruption of the sets will make the location of information more difficult for patrons.

USING THE NATIONAL INDEX

The search screen for the index is straightforward.

State: You may search "All States" or limit the search to a specific one in the drop down menu. Remember, however, that limiting the search in this way may result in information a relative living in another state submitted on your family being missed in the search.

Surname: Surnames have been entered into the index as they appeared in the report being indexed. Be creative with surname spellings which you wish to search. You may wish to search with just the "Surname" field filled in to view all references to individuals in the index.

First Name: First names have been entered into the index as they appeared in the report being indexed. Be creative with first name spellings which you wish to search.

Series: You may search by series number within the state sets, although this will limit your results.

Volume: You may search by volume number to narrow a search so it focuses on other names which appear in the same volume.

Sort by: You may have the results sorted by: "Last name," "First Name," "State," "Series," "Volume," or "Page." Each of these selections may be used to help refine your search and arrange the results in a more helpful order.

A section from the index appears below. The information provides the state from which the GRC Report with the information came; the name of the person in the report; the reference to the series number, volume and page [s1 v25 72].
VA Glover, Elizabeth s1 v25 72

MD Glover, Elizabeth Chenler s1 v128 8
OR Glover, Ellen s1 v221 165
OR Glover, Ellen s2 v19 54
OR Glover, Emily Pearl s1 v27 20

Series numbers: Beginning with volumes for 1989, the DAR Library required all states whose sets were not properly numbered to begin a Series 2 to impose order on the GRC Reports. All volumes up to and including 1988 are part of Series 1; all from 1989 forward are part of Series 2. A few states which already had consistant volume numbering for their sets, such as New York, were exempt from this policy. A few states have created many sub-sets within their collection, and the result is multiple series numbers.

Volume numbers: The volume numbers referenced in this index will likely only apply to GRC Reports located in the DAR Library in Washington because of the Library's rearrangement of these reports in recent years to facilitate indexing by volume number. Originally, most of the state sets did not have consistent volume numbering. The DAR Library's cataloging staff has taken all of the volumes received for each state, placed them in chronological order (with minor exceptions), and assigned volume numbers. In some cases, state sets with a numbering system were used as the guide for numbering the DAR Library's set. In a few other instances, state DAR sets were rearranged to match the numbering system of the DAR Library.

Older volume numbers in other libraries will likely not work for this index because of this wholesale reorganization of the national set at the DAR Library. Similarly, the volumes microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City or through loan to a Family History Center, do not have the volume numbers used by the DAR for this index because the numbers were assigned long after the microfilming was done.

Special Collections (Daughters of the American Revolution)

http://www.dar.org/library/speccol.cfm#record

American Indian Collection

The DAR has long had an interest in Native Americans, and its American Indians Committee, established in 1936, "provides financial assistance and educational aid to native American youth" through support of several schools and with a scholarship program. With this activity as background, the DAR Library established a special collection in 1987 designed to assist with Native American research using existing holdings and newly donated materials. It has continued to expand since its inception. Now numbering some 2,000 volumes, the American Indian Collection provides historical and genealogical information on first peoples across the United States.

While the focus of this collection is general history and culture, genealogical studies and guidebooks are becoming more numerous. Researchers will find histories of specific Native American nations, state studies, and materials on interactions with European and African settlers. There are six shelves concerning the Cherokee alone. In addition to the special collection itself, much information on Native Amerians can be found throughout the collection under the states and their counties.

The American Indian Collection supplements another nearby gathering of materials on Native Americans, the Natural Resources Library at the Department of the Interior. This library is open to the public but does not circulate books. Its holdings on American Indians are quite extensive and contain many valuable materials for genealogical research.
American Women's History Collection

As a major women's organization, the DAR has collected women's history materials for many years. In the late 1980s the Library began to develop an organized women's history collection using existing holdings and new publications. The assembled materials focus on the role played by women in the development of the United States, the women's rights movement of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and histories of women in the various states. Records relating to women in American history are found throughout the DAR collections. A natural focus of the American Women's History Collection is women's experience during the period of the American Revolution. Other books examine legal, cultural, and family ties in broad social context.
DAR Library File Collection

The DAR Library's file collection is a mixture of materials which have come with DAR membership applications, subsequent donations by DAR members, and items given by the public. Innumerable Bible records, family studies, pamphlets, and research notes are included. Numbering an estimated 300,000 folders, the richness and variety of the collection covers the entire United States and concentrates on the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries, with significant colonial records as well.

There are no published or in-house guides to the files, which grow by several boxes each month, but the simple arrangement in one alphabet within each division of the files by the names of Revolutionary War ancestors or family surnames makes for relatively easy retrieval.
Genealogical Records Committee Collection

Numbering some 15,000 typescript volumes, the Genealogical Records Committee Reports, as they are collectively called, comprise one of the most important and unique parts of the DAR Library's holdings. DAR members have gathered and submitted these unpublished compilations of Bible, cemetery, family, vital, county, town, church, and military records since the late 1910s. The pre-1972 books were microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah on nearly 3,000 microfilm rolls, but a greater number have arrived since this filming. Because the work of the Genealogical Records Committee is ongoing, users of the Library should expect to find new material throughout the year.

State DAR societies may also place copies of their reports in a library or libraries in that state. Frequently, these will be the state library, historical society, or a major public library. Sometimes there is a small State DAR library.

The DAR Library in Washington is the only research center owning nearly all of the Genealogical Records Committee Reports comprising the national set. Approximately 400-500 new books arrive each year. In-house indexes provide access to the contents of these volumes. A current project within the DAR Library seeks to enter the contents page of each Report into the cataloging record for that volume which appears in the Library's on-line catalog. These contents notes are searchable.
Manuscript Collection

A growing manuscript library of identifiable collections of genealogical research materials is one of the lesser known components of the DAR Library. Frequently, boxes and folders of notes, documents, unpublished genealogies, and indexes arrive. Examples include the Anne Waller Reddy Collection of Virginia family research performed by a Richmond genealogist in the mid-twentieth century; a two-drawer card file containing data on the Oysterbank family of New England; a largely complete run of The Hartford Times (Connecticut) genealogical queries column, 1934-1964; and Lyman Chalkley's original annotated typescript for his three-volume publication Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia, first published by the DAR in 1912.

An extensive collection within the Manuscript Collection is the supporting files and some documentation for Frederick A. Virkus' (editor) Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy which was collected by the Institute of American Genealogy in Chicago and published in seven volumes between 1925 and 1942. This material was once housed in the Peabody Library, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland. Subsequent transfers lead to its arrival at the DAR Library.

Access to the manuscript collection is through the on-line catalog. The National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections (NUCMC) set directs researchers to additional manuscript sources beyond DAR holdings.

The Library often receives requests from individuals for information on a relative's research materials which "were given to the DAR." Very rarely does the staff find such a collection, but sometimes the search is successful. In the past no register of such manuscript donations was maintained, unfortunately, to help clarify such questions. A possible solution may be that the relative gave it to the local DAR chapter or state organization. They in turn may have donated it to a local genealogical or historical society. They may have kept the material for their own files. Such materials are unlikely to appear in indices to manuscript collections such as NUCMC. Researchers should exhaust all possible leads regarding such donations.

Some research notes and materials from individuals do exist on the shelves of the Library. In decades past, the staff apparently took such loose papers, bound them together, and added them to the collection as a volume. These materials appear in the catalog now as books.

With a functioning manuscript collection and proper donation procedures in place, the Library welcomes donations of research material. When such collections arrive, they are given a collection name (usually the name of the donor or compiler), accessioned, cataloged with subject tracings, and added to the Manuscript Collection for use.
Presidents' Collection

A gathering of books on the men who have served as President and Vice President of the United States and on the First Ladies is available to researchers. In 1999, the lineage society Presidential Families of the America deposited their lineage papers with the DAR Library. These materials are housed in the Librarian General's office and are open to researchers.

United States Ephemera Collection

Since the beginnings of the DAR Library in the 1890s, members and the public have donated small pamphlets, booklets, newspaper clippings, typescripts, and manuscripts. The diversity of this material covers all areas of the United States, many American families, and untold numbers of subject areas. The DAR Library staff began a project in June 2000 to catalog and arrange this material for the first time into the United States Ephemera Collection. "Ephemera," in library terms, may be defined to cover the vast array of "odds and ends" of information sources which defy easy placement on a bookshelf, in a microfilm drawer, or in an existing manuscript collection. The items in this collection appear in the main on-line catalog and should be requested at the reference desk.
W.P.A. Collection

The DAR Library owns about 1,000 volumes of the publications of the Historical Records Survey of the Works Progress Administration (later the Work Projects Administration). Because of the DAR's involvement at the local level in supporting the work of the W.P.A. during its lifetime from 1935 to 1942, the W.P.A. donated many of its publications to the DAR Library because of the work of DAR members in supporting the activities of the W.P.A.

The majority of the published volumes is in the series "Inventory of the County Archives." These inventories of county records list local records found in courthouses in the states at the time the survey was completed. Not all counties in every state have a published inventory. Even if a county of interest is not available, researchers may wish to review an inventory for another county as a representative example of the types of records which should be in any county in that state. Many of the publications have useful introductions and discussions of records and record-keeping practices.

Portions of other W.P.A series are available in the Library's special "W.P.A. Collection." These include inventories of federal records in the states, calendars of manuscript collections, guides to the records of religious bodies, and indices to a few newspapers. All are of potential value to genealogists and should not be overlooked.

Sanders Family Marriage Records of our Sanders History section.

This site is sponsored by the Sanders Family Association, a national non-profit family club for all descendants of the many Sanders-Saunders families in America.

These marriage records have been obtained from a variety of sources, including directly from courthouse records, published books and magazines and from lists sent in by relatives. In many cases, the date shown is not the actual date of marriage but rather when the marriage license -- or bond, was issued. This is especially true of older records. These are most likely a marriage "bond", a legal promise to marry the girl and if the marriage did not take place, the man and his bondsman forfeited the bond money. The family club urges everyone to gather Sanders - Saunders family marriage records and send these to us to preserve in the Sanders Family National Library.

Original source wording: Description: Civil War Compiled Military Service Records (CMSR)

Union records were taken from National Archives Record Group 94. Confederate records were taken from National Archives Record Group 109 microfilm series M253.

Compiled Military Service Records (CMSR) Each volunteer soldier has one Compiled Military Service Record (CMSR) for each regiment in which he served. The CMSR contains basic information about the soldier's military career, and it is the first source the researcher should consult. The CMSR is an envelope (a jacket) containing one or more cards. These cards typically indicate that the soldier was present or absent during a certain period of time. Other cards may indicate the date of enlistment and discharge, amount of bounty paid him, and other information such as wounds received during battle or hospitalization for injury or illness. The soldier's place of birth may be indicated; if foreign born, only the country of birth is stated. The CMSR may contain an internal jacket for so-called "personal papers" of various kinds. These may include a copy of the soldier's enlistment paper, papers relating to his capture and release as a prisoner of war, or a statement that he had no personal property with him when he died. Note, however, that the CMSR rarely indicates battles in which a soldier fought; that information must be derived from other sources.

A CMSR is as complete as the surviving records of an individual soldier or his unit. The War Department compiled the CMSRs from the original muster rolls and other records some years after the war to permit more rapid and efficient checking of military and medical records in connection with claims for pensions and other veterans' benefits. The abstracts were so carefully prepared that it is rarely necessary to consult the original muster rolls and other records from which they were made. When the War Department created CMSRs at the turn of the century, information from company muster rolls, regimental returns, descriptive books, hospital rolls, and other records was copied verbatim onto cards. A separate card was prepared each time an individual name appeared on a document. These cards were all numbered on the back, and these numbers were entered onto the outside jacket containing the cards. The numbers on the jacket correspond with the numbers on the cards within the jacket. These numbers were used by the War Department only for control purposes while the CMSRs were being created; the numbers do not refer to other records regarding a veteran nor are they useful for reference purposes today.

In 1870 Georgia began granting pensions to soldiers with artificial limbs. In 1879 the State began granting pensions to other disabled Confederate veterans or their widows who then resided in Georgia. By 1894 eligible disabilities had been expanded to include old age and poverty. A published index is available in many libraries:

Title Nonpopulation census schedules for Tennessee, 1850-1880

Notes Microfilm of originals at the Duke University Library in Durham, North Carolina.

Agricultural schedules pertain to every farm with an annual produce worth $100 (1850-1860)-$500 (1870-1880) or more for the year the enumeration was taken. The schedule includes the name of the owner, agent, or tenant and the kind and vlue of acreage, machinery, livestock, and produce. Industrial schedules (1850-1870) recorded information about mining, manufacturing, fisheries, and all kinds of mercantile, commercial, and trading businesses, if the annual gross product amounted to $500. The schedules show the name of the company or owner; kind of business; capital investment; and quantity and value of materials, labor, machinery, and products. Manufactures schedules (1880). Special agents, rather than the regular enumerators, recorded information for certain large industries and in cities of more than 8,000 inhabitants. These schedules are not extant. The regular enumerators did continue to collect information on general industry schedules and special schedules for twelve industries. The schedules show the name of the company or owner and much specific information about the kind, quantity, and value of materials, labor, machinery, and products.

Original source wording: 27th TENNESSEE CAVALRY BATTALION
Lieutenant Colonel James E. Daniel
submitted by: Greg Curtis
The only record of this organization was found in Special Order Number 52, Adjutant and Inspector Generars Office at Richmond, Virginia, dated March 3, 1865 which read as follows:


"The following Companies of Tennessee Cavalry raised within the enemy lines by Captain L. G. Mead under authority of the War Department are hereby organized into a battalion to be known as the 27th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion: Captains Jerome Root's, J.E. McColum's, J. C. Jenkins', J. P. Henley's, Joel Cunningham's, J. T. Baxter's." The order went on to specify that the Alabama companies raised under the same circumstance were to be organized into a battalion Imown as the 25th Alabama Cavalry Battalion. No muster rolls of the battalion organization were found, but these companies were previously mustered as part of Mead's Cavalry, CSA, of which no rolls are available in the Tennessee files. Their company letters in Mead's Cavalry were as follows:

CAPTAINS-Joel Cunningham, Co. "B", Mead's Cavalry
J.E. McColum, Co. "D", Mead's Cavalry.
J.T. Baxter, Co. "H", Mead's Cavalry.
J.P. Henley, Co. "I", Mead's Cavalry men from Grundy County
J.C. Jenkins, Co. "K", Mead's Cavalry.
Jerome Root, Co. "L", Mead's Cavalry.

Captain L. C. Mead was first reported on August 15, 1862, in command of Partisan Rangers, when Major General E. Kirby Smith ordered him to operate in North Alabama and Southern Tennessee, reporting to the general in command nearest to him. Federal reports from that time until the end of the war make frequent references to Mead's guerrillas, or bushwhackers, operating in North Alabmaa and Middle Tennessee. One such report dated May 27, 1864, said Mead's Regiment of Partisan Rangers, attached to General Roddey's command, was in Franklin County, Tennessee with 500 well mounted men, many of whom had enlisted since the regiment entered Tennessee. It is probable that some of the Tennessee companies were enlisted at this time.

No record was found of what happened to the battalion after it was organized except for the fact that I. P Henley was paroled at Chattanooga May 16, 1865 as lieutenant colonel of the 28th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment. From this it would appear that either Captain Henley's Company never reported to the battalion, or that it was later transferred to the 28th Regiment of which Captain Henley became lieutenant colonel.

Original source wording: Description:

This database is an index to all individuals enumerated in the 1900 United States Federal Census, the Twelfth Census of the United States. In addition, the names of those listed on the population schedule are linked to actual images of the 1900 Federal Census, copied from the National Archives and Records Administration microfilm, T623, 1854 rolls. (If you do not initially find the name on the page that you are linked to, try a few pages forward or backward, as sometimes different pages had the same page number.)

Enumerators of the 1900 census were instructed to record the names of every person in the household. Enumerators were asked to include the following categories in the census: name; address; relationship to the head of household; color or race; sex; month and year of birth; age at last birthday; marital status; number of years married; the total number of children born of the mother; the number of those children living; places of birth of each individual and the parents of each individual; if the individual was foreign born, the year of immigration and the number of years in the United States; the citizenship status of foreign-born individuals over age twenty-one; occupation; whether the person could read, write, and speak English; whether the home was owned or rented; whether the home was on a farm; and whether the home was mortgaged. The categories allowed Congress to determine persons residing in the United States for collection of taxes and the appropriation of seats in the House of Representatives.

Few, if any, records reveal as many details about individuals and families as do the U.S. Federal Censuses. The population schedules are successive "snapshots" of Americans that depict where and how they were living at particular periods in the past. Because of this, the census is often the best starting point for genealogical research after home sources have been exhausted.

Extended Description:

The United States was the first country to call for a regularly held census. The Constitution required that a census of all "Persons...excluding Indians not taxed" be performed to determine the collection of taxes and the appropriation of seats in the House of Representatives. The first nine censuses from 1790 to 1870 were organized under the United States Federal Court system. Each district was assigned a U.S. marshal who hired other marshals to administer the census. Governors were responsible for enumeration in territories.

The official enumeration day of the 1900 census was 1 June 1900. All questions asked were supposed to refer to that date. By 1900, there were a total of forty-five states in the Union, with Utah being the latest addition and Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, New Mexico, and Oklahoma enumerated as territories.

Enumerators of the 1820 census were asked to include the following categories in the census: name of head of household, number of free white males and females in age categories: 0 to 10, 10 to 16, 16 to 26, 26 to 45, 45 and older; number of other free persons except Indians not taxed; number of slaves; and town or district and county of residence. Additionally, the 1820 census for the first time asked the number of free white males 16 to 18; number of persons to be naturalized; number engaged in agriculture, commercial, or manufacture; number of "colored" persons (sometimes in age categories); and number of other persons except Indians. The categories allowed Congress to determine persons residing in the United States for collection of taxes and the appropriation of seats in the House of Representatives. Most entries are arranged in the order of visitation, but some have been rearranged to appear in alphabetical order by initial letter of the surname. Manufacturing schedules are scattered among the 1820 population schedules.

Few, if any, records reveal as many details about individuals and families as do the U.S. federal censuses. The population schedules are successive "snapshots" of Americans that depict where and how they were living at particular periods in the past. Because of this, the census is often the best starting point for genealogical research after home sources have been exhausted.
Extended Description:

The United States was the first country to call for a regularly held census. The Constitution required that a census of all "Persons...excluding Indians not taxed" be performed to determine the collection of taxes and the appropriation of seats in the House of Representatives. The first nine censuses from 1790-1870 were organized under the United States Federal Court system. Each district was assigned a U.S. marshal who hired other marshals to administer the census. Governors were responsible for enumeration in territories.

The official enumeration day of the 1820 census was 7 August 1820. All questions asked were supposed to refer to that date. The count was due within six months, but the due date was extended by law to allow completion within thirteen months. By 1820, there were a total of twenty-three states in the Union. The six new states were Louisiana, Indiana, Mississippi, Illinois, Alabama and Maine. There was, however, a district wide loss for Arkansas Territory, Missouri Territory and New Jersey. Partial losses included half the counties in Alabama, and roughly 20 eastern Tennessee counties supervised by the Federal Court District out of Knoxville. Some of the schedules for these states have been re-created using tax lists and other records.

Original source wording:   I. SUMMARY OF THE CWSS

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System is a computerized database containing very basic facts about servicemen who served on both sides during the Civil War. The initial focus of the CWSS is the Names Index Project, a project to enter names and other basic information from 6.3 million soldier records in the National Archives. The facts about the soldiers were entered from records that are indexed to many millions of other documents about Union and Confederate Civil War soldiers maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration.

Other information includes: histories of regiments in both the Union and Confederate Armies, links to descriptions of 384 significant battles of the war, and other historical information. Additional information about soldiers, sailors, regiments, and battles, as well as prisoner-of-war records and cemetery records, will be added over time.

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System (CWSS) is a cooperative effort by the National Park Service (NPS) and several other public and private partners, to computerize information about the Civil War. The goal of the CWSS is to increase the American people's understanding of this decisive era in American history by making information about it widely accessible. The CWSS will enable the public to make a personal link between themselves and history.
  

II. CURRENT STATUS OF THE CWSS

The data entry phase of the 6.3 million soldier records was completed by volunteers across the country. The records have gone through the enormous and tedious task of being edited for accuracy, consistency, etc. by two of our main partners, the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU) and the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS). After editing was complete, NPS staff converted the final edited version into an Oracle database for access by the CWSS on the Internet. Recently, the final one million soldier names from Virginia (Confederate) and Pennsylvania (Union) were made available on the Internet. This completes the soldier names phase of the CWSS. A special ceremony was held on September 27, 2004 at Ford's Theatre, Washington, DC to commemerate this significant milestone.

The CWSS database currently contains over 6 million soldier names from 44 states and territories.

III. CURRENT FEATURES OF THE CWSS

Soldiers  The CWSS includes 6.3 million soldier names from the National Archives, which were compiled by NPS' partners in the CWSS project. As of February, 2000, volunteers in over 36 states had completed the data entry of all the 6.3 million soldier names. The two final editing processes for the records have recently been completed.

The source of the data entered is the General Index Cards in the Compiled Military Service Records at the National Archives. In September of 1996, the CWSS completed the first phase of the Names Index and placed 235,000 names of African American Union soldiers on the Internet. These were completed first in order to provide the names to the African American Civil War Memorial that was dedicated in Washington, DC..

More soldier names were added to the CWSS as the final editing was completed in Salt Lake City by the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU) and the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS). NPS computer systems analyst, Wayne McLaughlin, converted the edited data from GSU and FGS into an Oracle database for use on the CWSS website. In May of 2000, a new version of the website was launched and we have been adding soldier records ever since. The final one million names were added in September 2004.

As of September 2004, the CWSS database contains over 6 million soldier names. These include records from all Union and Confederate states/territories.
 

Sailors  The NPS and its' CWSS partners are committed to eventually include the names of all Union and Confederate Naval personnel. Given that the records sources for the Navy are not as well organized as the Army records, nor are they micro-filmed, the target date for this is still to be determined.

In the meantime, with funding from the Defense Department, NPS has partnered with Howard University to identify African American sailors who served in the Union Navy during the Civil War. The research has resulted in a database of approximately 18,000 African American sailors from various historical Navy documents. These were made available on the Internet in November, 2000. The incorporation into the CWSS was formally announced at a special program held at the Navy Memorial in Washington, D. C., on November 17, 2000. This project has received grants from the Department of the Defense Legacy Resources Management Program.

Regiments  The CWSS will include histories of over 4,000 Union and Confederate units (regiments), which will be linked to soldiers' names and battle histories. These will be completed this year as part of the CWSS site. The site currently includes regimental histories of units from 44 states and territories.

Timothy Good, an NPS historian, formerly at Fords Theater and now at Dayton Aviation Heritage NHP, and Eric Sheetz, NPS interpreter, are researching and assembling information for the CWSS about regiments and battles. They have completed assembling Union regimental histories from Dyer's Compendium and comparable histories from Joseph Crute's Units of the Confederate Army.

Battles In the CWSS  The unit histories are linked to histories of the 364 most significant Civil War battles already on the Internet from the NPS' American Battlefield Protection Program. These battle histories were compiled as part of a report to Congress by the Civil War Sites Advisory Committee.

Monuments - Coming in the future  As resources permit, the CWSS may in the future, include information on the thousands of Civil War monuments and markers at NPS sites.

Cemeteries  The National Park Service manages 14 National Cemeteries, all but one of which is related to a Civil War battlefield park. The NPS is planning on listing all names of burials in these cemeteries on the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System. The first phase involves data taken from written records of Poplar Grove National Cemetery at Petersburg National Battlefield, and also includes images of the headstones.

Medal of Honor  This feature of the CWSS includes information on over 1,200 Civil War soldiers and sailors who received the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Prisoners  The current version of the CWSS includes prisoner records of Union prisoners at Andersonville and Confederate prisoners at Fort McHenry.

National Parks  This feature links to the web pages of all National Park Service Civil War sites.
   

IV. WHERE DID THE CWSS INFORMATION COME FROM

Throughout all periods of development of the system, great care has been taken by NPS and its' Partners to use data from original historical documents as the source of the data where possible.


SOLDIER NAMES

During the American Civil War, every two weeks on average, usually at the company level, soldiers' names were recorded on muster rolls. Beginning in the 1880s General Ainsworth's staff in the Department of the Army indexed these records originally to determine who was eligible for a pension. His staff wrote a card for every time a soldier's name appeared on a muster roll. When Ainsworth's staff finished the Compiled Military Service records, each soldier's file usually had many cards representing each time the soldier's name appeared on a muster roll.

One type of card, the General Index Card listed the soldier's name, the soldier's rank at the time of enlistment from the first card and the date the soldier left the service with the soldier's final rank from the last card. These General Index cards form the basis for the Civil War Soldiers System. When Ainsworth's staff completed the project, there were 6.3 million General Index Cards for the soldiers - both Union and Confederate - who had served during the American Civil War. Historians have determined that approximately 3.5 million soldiers actually fought in the War. A soldier serving in more than one regiment, serving under two names, or spelling variations resulted in the fact that there are 6.3 million General Index Cards for 3.5 million soldiers.

REGIMENTAL HISTORIES

In one Connecticut regiment during the American Civil War a young drummer boy witnessed first hand the intensity of war. Several decades later in 1903, this drummer boy now a grown man, devoted himself to writing the histories of all the Union regiments. This man was Frederick Dyer. After the war, the Department of the Army assembled some of its vast information on the War and published the multi-volume work entitled the "Official Records of the War of the Rebellion." However, the Official Records were not fully indexed and were therefore not easily usable. Dyer used information from this source and from Union veterans to complete his work. After five years of almost solitary confinement, Dyer completed his task which was published under the name of the "Compendium of the War of the Rebellion."

Over seventy years later, the Civil War Soldiers System' Historian's Steering Committee, which consisted of National Park Rangers and Historians, recommended Dyer's Compendium as the most complete and reliable source for Union regimental histories. Dyer's Compendium had withstood the test of time and became the CWSS source for Union regimental histories.

BATTLE HISTORIES

The unit histories are linked to histories of the 364 most significant Civil War battles already on the Internet from the NPS' American Battlefield Protection Program. These battle histories were compiled as part of a report to Congress by the Civil War Sites Advisory Committee.

Court Of Honor And Flag Circle

The Court Of Honor And Flag Circle is a memorial to the American and Marianas people who died in "Operation Forager" (the battles for Saipan and Tinian), and the Battle Of The Philippine Sea during World War II, in June-July 1944.

The Court Of Honor has 26 granite plates inscribed with the names of 2,875 Marines, 1,824 Army and 505 Navy personnel who were either killed or listed as missing-in-action. Momentous quotes from the American commanders, and three quotes from the United Nations Peace Conference at the end of World War II are inscribed in stone monuments at the Court Of Honor.

The Flag Circle consists of the American flag, flanked by the Service Flags of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force (Army Air Corps). The Flag Circle is prominently viewed through the park's mall entrance by all who drive north on Beach Road in Saipan.

50th Anniversary Reunion Of World War II Veterans At Court Of Honor
Veterans return 50 years later
June 15, 1994 marked the 50th anniversary of D-Day on Saipan. Fifty years earlier, on June 15, 1944, after intense bombardment by U.S. Navy ships and carrier-born aircraft, the U.S. Second Marine Division and Fourth Marine Division assaulted the western beaches of Saipan, followed two days later by the U.S. Army 27th Infantry Division.

Fifty years later, the Battles for Saipan and Tinian were commemorated with the dedication of the Court of Honor and Flag Circle at American Memorial Park. Over 150 World War II veterans and their family arrived from the U.S. mainland to remember that event. On the morning of June 15, 1994 there were memorial ceremonies on the original Saipan landing beaches and in other parts of Saipan where the Army, Navy, Navy Seabees, Marine, Air Force, and other supporting units fought and served on Saipan.

Afterward, the island of Saipan turned out for a grand parade along Beach Road in Garapan honoring the World War II Veterans and those residents of Saipan who endured the war. At the end of the parade route, the Veterans assembled at the Court of Honor and dedicated it to the memory of those who paid the ultimate price.

In the evening there was a big-band concert and a tremendous fireworks show at American Memorial Park.

Throughout the following days there were many commemorations and tours at Tinian and Saipan. Since then many other Veterans have been able to return to Saipan for their own private commemorations.

Description:

This database details those persons enumerated in the 1850 United States Federal Census, the Seventh Census of the United States. In addition, the names of those listed on the population schedule are linked to the actual images of the 1850 Federal Census, copied from the National Archives and Records Administration microfilm, M432, 1009 rolls. (If you do not initially find the name on the page that you are linked to, try a few pages forward or backward, as sometimes different pages had the same page number.)

For the first time in the history of the United States census, enumerators of the 1850 census were instructed to record the names of every person in the household. Added to this, enumerators were presented with printed instructions, which account for the greater degree of accuracy compared with earlier censuses. Enumerators were asked to include the following categories in the census: name; age as of the census day; sex; color; birthplace; occupation of males over age fifteen; value of real estate; whether married within the previous year; whether deaf-mute, blind, insane, or "idiotic"; whether able to read or write for individuals over age twenty; and whether the person attended school within the previous year. No relationships were shown between members of a household. The categories allowed Congress to determine persons residing in the United States for collection of taxes and the appropriation of seats in the House of Representatives.

Few, if any, records reveal as many details about individuals and families as do the U.S. federal censuses. The population schedules are successive "snapshots" of Americans that depict where and how they were living at particular periods in the past. Because of this, the census is often the best starting point for genealogical research after home sources have been exhausted.

The 1850 Census includes the following states and territories: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota Territory (includes Dakota area), Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico Territory (includes Arizona area), New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon Territory (includes Washington and Idaho areas), Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah Territory, Vermont, Virginia (includes West Virginia counties), Wisconsin.

By 1850, there were a total of thirty-one states in the Union, with Florida, Texas, Iowa, Wisconsin, and California being the latest editions. The four new territories of Oregon, Minnesota, New Mexico, and Utah were also enumerated. There were no substantial state- or district-wide losses.

Civil War Research Database -- FAQs

1. Who is HDS?
Historical Data Systems, Inc. is a Massachusetts based company whose focus is the American Civil War. We have created the first online database, the Civil War Research Database®, which will contain the military records for the 4 million plus soldiers who fought in this great conflict.

2. How long has HDS been working on the database?
We have invested over 60,000 person hours in the creation of the database to date. Check the Database status section for the latest update of states completed or in process.

3. Where does the information come from that you are using to build the database?
A large amount of information in our database has previously been unavailable and inaccessible to the public. Our primary source of information are the state rosters that were published by the Adjutants General for each state involved in the War. These rosters include the military records for each member of that state's military forces. In addition, we are entering information from the Official Records, pension index records, 1860 census records, GAR records, Roll of Honor records, Medal of Honor Records, and Regimental histories. Also, the database will soon include images of battle maps that accompany the Official Records. For more detail about our sources please see the bibliography section on the site.

4. What information are you entering for each soldier?
We are entering the information contained within the Adjutants General's reports as published by each state. The types of data vary by state but typically include: name, residence, date of entry, regiments, companies, rank, promotions, transfers, events such as POW, wounded, etc. and how and where the soldier exited the military - discharge, desertion, muster out, death (and the cause of death, if available). Some states include birthplace, age at enlistment, occupation and physical description in their official record.

5. What level of detail is available in the database?
You can examine the military record for each individual soldier. Starting at the regiment level you can trace the war effort, critical statistics such as average age, method of entry into and out of the military, war engagements and their associated loss/prisoner statistics. You can search the Database by soldier, regiment, state, town, and battle.

6. What can I do with this information?
Since the information is contained in a relational database, you have tremendous flexibility to examine the data from different perspectives. You can now go below the 'big picture' scenario and examine the details of the regiments - where they saw combat, regimental casualty statistics, the effects of disease, etc. By examining census information, you will be able to hypothesize on the effect of the war on the soldiers' hometowns. You will also be able to cross reference variables that have previously been beyond reach because of the limitations of technology.

7. How is this system different from other products on the market?
There is no other product on the market with as detailed information as is contained in this database. Other systems lack the depth and breadth of information we have on the individual soldier. We go beyond simply scanning in the Official Records or state rosters and matching to a name index. Using the latest relational database technology, our database allows you to cross reference variables about a soldier with multiple data element records contained in his military file or with other soldiers' files. The Civil War Research Database® is a comprehensive research tool combined with powerful search capabilities. With it you can trace a soldier through the soldiers' war time experiences. For example, you start with an individual soldier -- link to the town he resided in and review the 1860 town population and perhaps the town's appraised values; link to the regiment(s) he was assigned to and examine any promotions or demotions received; jump to the battles his regiment was involved with and check the casualty analysis for the regiment and then compare those results against other regiments that were involved. Continuing the soldier's story -- determine if the soldier experienced any extraordinary event such as being captured or missing, examine how the soldier left the military - was he discharged, did he die, did he desert, is he missing, was he a member of the GAR and finally check on any pension requests that where submitted on his behalf.

Utilizing extensive edits we reduce potential sources of error or confusion within the database. For example, for many soldiers our edits will catch situations where a soldier's name is spelled differently between his various records. Also, another problem that our edit routines attempt to reduce is tracking a soldier's transfers. Often, the data on the receiving company is missing or incomplete.

Our edits and cross-reference checking catch many errors, however, when the data sources are over 100 years old, errors will still happen and we welcome your help in finding them. You should send any corrections along with corroborating material to us at our e-mail address.

8. Is the database complete?
The Civil War Research Database(c) contains the military records of nearly 2 million soldiers. This represents over 50,000 hours of our staff's time entering individual military records for these soldiers. We continue to add information on these soldiers into the database as well as to enter information on the remaining 2 plus million soldiers.

9. What states are completed or in the process of completion?
Click on "Database Status" to obtain the current listing of states completed or in process of completion.

10. Is there an e-mail address to send comments and questions to?
We want to hear from you. Please send your comments and questions to civilwardata@sprynet.com.

11. I think some of your information is incorrect. How do I notify you?
We welcome your comments, suggestions, and help clarifying any information we have about the soldiers. With over 22 million pieces of information in the database we recognize that some information may be wrong or incomplete. Please e-mail us and let us know what corroborating material you have to correct the mistakes. Leave us your e-mail address or phone number and a convenient time to contact you.

12. I have information, maps, or photographs that you may be interested in. How do I reach you?
We welcome your comments, suggestions, and help with additional material for the Civil War Research Database®. Please leave us an e-mail message with a description of the material you have and we will contact you.

13. How is the Ancestry.com site different from the HDS site version of the Database?
The data for each site is the same. The Ancestry.com site is intended to simplify the data configuration for a researcher whose primary interest is genealogical. Because genealogists most often approach the data looking for individuals, we have collected all available information about each individual in a single full text display. We have configured this full text individual display so as to accommodate the expanded information available for officers as well. The Ancestry.com version seeks to create an intuitive flow between regimental and individual soldier information. Links to regimental information are available from within individual soldier records. Links to individual soldiers are also available from within the regimental tables. Some of the charting functions available on the HDS site have been eliminated in order to focus on the information that seemed immediately important to genealogists.

Email Regarding Death Date of Milton Porter Sanders
From: Chuck Sherrill> bookish59@cs.com
To: Alma Harings> aharings@cox.net
Date: Wednesday, February 4, 2004

Dear Alma:

I've checked my book "Death records of Grundy County Tenn." and do not find a record for Porter Sanders. Death registration in TN began in 1908 but it was slow to catch on and many early deaths were not recorded.

I do find an obit from the Tracy City newspaper re the death of G.C.Sanders on 01 June 1911, which mentions his brothers John R. and Porter Sanders. That would indicate that Porter was still living at that time. Best wishes for success with your search.

Original source wording: Getting the Most Out of the Civil War Pension Index, Part I
Military records are among the most sought after sources of information for family historians. Ancestry.com subscribers have access to several helpful indexes to Civil War records. One of the most popular of these databases is the Civil War Pension Index, which allows users to locate their ancestors in the index, and then view and print out digitized copies of the actual National Archives' Civil War Pension Index Cards for use in requesting pension records from NARA.

Cynthia Fox and Connie Potter of the National Archives have submitted the following guide for Ancestry.com users to help them understand the process for requesting these records from the National Archives, and to help avoid some common mistakes in their requests.

The first part of the guide addresses, "Ordering Copies of Original Pension Records from the National Archives." Part II, which will run next week in the Ancestry Daily News, will address "Ordering Copies of Original Compiled Military Service Records from the National Archives." Part III, "Changes in Ordering Copies of Original Pension and Service Records from the National Archives" is available in the Ancestry.com Library, and anyone who is planning on ordering these records, should read this as well. Part III outlines some recent changes in the procedures for requesting military records and addresses some common misunderstandings. It is available at: www.ancestry.com/library/view/news/articles/4005.asp

I. Ordering Copies of Original Pension Records from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)

Most Union army soldiers, their widows, or minor children applied for a pension. In rare cases, a dependent father or mother applied for a pension. The pension application file will often contain a statement of service prepared by the Adjutant General's Office and it may contain much medical information if the soldier lived for a number of years after the war. To obtain a widow's pension, the widow had to provide proof of marriage, such as a copy of the record kept by county or local officials, or by affidavit from the minister or some other person. Applications on behalf of the soldier's minor children had to supply both proof of the soldier's marriage and proof of the children's birth. You can order copies of Civil War and later pension applications by using the form NATF 85, "Order for copies of Federal Pension or Bounty Land Warrant Applications." NARA does not have pension applications for service in the Confederate Army or Navy although some of the former Confederate States did pay pensions. Those applications are in the various State Archives. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Web site at www.nara.gov lists the institutions that have Confederate pensions, their addresses, and information about how to conduct research with them.

There are several indexes to the Civil War and Later pensions. The most important and frequently used is the name index. It is available as a NARA microfilm publication (T288). It was recently scanned and computerized by Ancestry.com and is available to subscribers at: www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/military/cwpi/main.htm

The online pension index is an exact copy of the index used by National Archives to retrieve pension files for copying. The index entries include a lot of information that you can use to identify your particular soldier. By reading the card, you can see the units in which the soldier served, find the widow's name, learn the place of residence after the war, and you can even figure out approximate dates of the soldier's death.

Enclosing a printout of the card image will cut at least a week off of the amount of time it takes for us to locate a file and send it to be copied. Sometimes it will save even more time. NARA staff uses the index just as you do. Getting an unindexed request through that step takes about a week. Our indexers actually print out the index card for the searchers to use when we index a file. You could cut some time by writing the numbers on the form, but be sure to write the correct numbers. Here's how it works.

The file is supposed to be under the last certificate number. If a soldier applied for a pension based on wounds or illness suffered while in the service, his application file got a number. Once the pension office had reviewed the application and decided that the soldier was an invalid and deserved a pension, they gave him a certificate number and moved the entire application file into the soldiers certificate files under a new number. The original application number became void. When the soldier died his widow applied to have the benefits continued. Her application was given a number but the soldier's pension certificate file was not moved to her new application number. In fact, her application becomes part of the soldier's file. Once the claim for continued benefits was approved, the entire file was given a new number as a widow's certificate. Minor children and invalid parents claims were processed in the same way as a widow's claim. This system continued until the beginning of the 20th century. The pension office decided to stop moving files around and to create a single pension series of certificate ("C") files. Old pension certificate files that were still active were transferred ("X") to the C files. The XC numbers, which appear at the bottom of the index cards, indicate that a file was transferred to the C pension series.

There are actually five separate series of Civil War and Later Pension files. There are two series of applications that were rejected and never converted to certificates of pension. These series are the soldier's or survivor's original (SO) application and the widow's original (WO). These files tend to be thinner but that is not always the case. Sometimes a soldier or a widow kept reapplying each time the laws became liberalized, and the files are very rich. There are three series of certificate files: soldier's certificates (SC); widow's certificates (WC), which include minor child and indigent parents; and certificates (XC or C). If the file isn't where it is supposed to be we have to assume that someone forgot to move the file and it is still under the old number. That's why enclosing a copy of the index card saves time.

There are also going to be other times when there is an index entry for this soldier that appears to be correct, however, the file does not appear to be in our custody. It may have been that someone made a mistake and removed the files without documentation prior to transfer to the National Archives more than fifty years ago. That kind of mistake is virtually impossible to correct. We don't know where it is and have no possibility of finding it. The clerks who worked in the pension office one hundred years ago were thorough. If you think about keeping track of all of the files, making sure that the checks went out and widows and orphans continued to get benefits, without a single identifying number like a service number or a Social Security number; you realize that they did a terrific job. On the other hand, they were human. If we go to retrieve the file and the pension file cited does not appear to relate to the soldier listed on your form, we have to: 1. Re-check the alphabetical index (T288), or 2. Check the organizational index (T289) for Civil War units. Sometimes we catch an error that way: 540 611 on the alphabetical index card turns out to be 540 661 on the organizational index card.

In some cases, we know that we don't have files for a soldier in the index. The file may be a XC or C pension claim number. The XC or C pension file number should appear at the bottom of the index card. There are a lot of C and XC files that we do not have. If there was anyone still alive who had a claim against the pension in roughly 1928, then NARA probably won't have the file. It was still an active record and therefore is still in the legal custody of what is now the Department of Veterans' Affairs. To get access, you have to contact your local Veteran's Affairs office. The sites of these are listed on the Web site at: www.va.gov

Send your local VA office the XC pension number and the other soldier identifying information that you can provide. Do not, however, include the name of the war. Then write: "I am requesting that you conduct a Beneficiary Identification and Records Locator System (BIRLS) search for the file and retrieve it for my use from the Federal Records Center where it is currently housed. Procedures for recall of records from Federal Records Centers are found in VA Handbook 6300.1, Chapter six, Part five." They will retrieve the file and either 1. Make you a copy or, 2. Invite you to their office to review the file. There are also a few civilian pensions in the index. For access to files with number designations "R-###" contact the Bureau of Retirement and Insurance, Office of Personnel Management, 19th and E Streets NW, Washington, DC 20415. Finally, we do not have all of the rejected original applications filed by soldiers or their widows (SO and WO). About half of the SO applications were destroyed before NARA was created in 1934. Some of the widow's applications were returned to the applicants.

Sometimes it takes forever to get a response. There are several reasons that you might not receive an answer from us right away. The record requested may have been removed from the files for reference purposes. Another researcher can have requested copies of the same file. If you know that someone has just requested a file, don't submit a request for the same file. The other person's request will come in, the file will be pulled for copying and when your request gets processed, you guessed it, no file. Your request will go into a box for double-checking. The average length of time for a file to be off the shelf is four to six weeks. There are ten thousand to twelve thousand pension files off the shelf at any point in time. Researchers who visit NARA in Washington, DC, use the same files. There is no way that we can find a single file until they have been put back into some sort of order. The supervisor knows all of this and does not reassign a request until a minimum of four weeks has passed.

Another problem in filling orders quickly is our own mistakes. When we take a file from the stacks, we try to make sure that it will be returned to its proper place. We are also human. Sometimes we make mistakes. If the file was pulled more than twelve weeks ago, we declare it a misfile. That means that your request goes into a box and some of our most experienced staff will try to find the file. That can take some time. There are about three hundred thousand pension application files and they all look alike. If you have not heard from us in ten to twelve weeks, you can give us a call at 1- 800-234-8861 or 301-713-6800 or send us an e-mail at: mailto:inquire@nara.gov. Be sure to have your form number handy. We have a new order processing system and we can check on the status of orders but we need a form number.

The average Civil War pension application file is 126 pages. You can order the complete file for a flat fee of $37. Our current fee for paper copies is 50 cents per page, so this can be a savings. If you choose, you can order a document packet. This will be limited to specific documents. These specific documents are:

1) Declaration for a pension
2) Declaration for a widow's pension
3) The Adjutant General's Office statement of service
4) Questionnaires completed by applicants (numbered forms)
5) Pension Dropped cards
6) Marriage certificates
7) Death certificates
8) Discharge certificates

These are also listed in the instructions for the form. If the documents are not in the file that you requested, you will not receive other documents to replace them. You can get blank forms by e-mailing mailto: inquire@nara.gov or calling 1-800-234-8861 or 301-713-6800.

We are working on creating an online order form but we are not there yet. Don't try to electrostatically reproduce the forms. Each form has a unique number. If you send us six forms with the same number, we will mail them back with six new blank forms. Status tracking needs a unique number for each request. Remember to pull off the pink copy of the form NATF85 for your records. It has the form number "F####" and it has the phone number and address to call or write. The most important thing to remember is do not forget to write your name and address on each and every order. Since we have a new order processing system, we don't get the original forms anymore. We get scanned images delivered to us electronically. We can't process an order without a name and address.

NARA cannot do substantive research for you. Reading several files to see if any of the match meager identification is substantive research. If you request a specific file, we can search for that file and provide you with copies. Our success is based entirely on the work that you do before you send the request to us. If there are too many soldiers in a unit with the same name, we will return the request to you for additional information. Using the Civil War Pension Index is one way to ensure that the file you want is the file that you get.

Original source wording: What Can I Find in the World War I Civilian Draft Registration Cards?
In 1917 and 1918, approximately 24 million men living in the United States completed a registration card, representing 98% of men under the age of 46 and close to 25% of the total population.

The WWI draft registration cards contain a lot of information pertinent to genealogical research. Information that may be found on these cards includes full name, address, age, date of birth, race, citizenship, occupation, employers name, location of employment, name and address of nearest relative, physical description, and signature of registrant, among other things. Use the information found in this database to fill in details about your ancestor's life. Then, use the information as a springboard to lead you to other records. For example, if the address of your ancestor is listed on the draft card, use that information to find your ancestor in a city directory and then trace your ancestor through that city's directories for as many years as you can.
The draft cards are also a good source for finding immigrant information because all young men were required to register, regardless of U.S. citizen status, and since 1880-1920 was a high immigration period, a large portion of immigrant men registered and gave information of birth date, birthplace, and in some cases their father's birthplace and nearest relative.

Note: The posting of this valuable data is part of an ongoing project. We will continue to post indexes of entire states with individual names linked to their corresponding draft card image.

Original source wording: Social Security Death Index, Research Tips & SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER STATE CODES

Long before the economic blight of the depression descended on the Nation, millions of our people were living in wastelands of want and fear. Men and women too old and infirm to work either depended on those who had but little to share, or spent their remaining years within the walls of a poorhouse . . .The Social Security Act offers to all our citizens a workable and working method of meeting urgent present needs and of forestalling future need . . .

--- President Franklin Roosevelt; August 14, 1938, radio address on the third anniversary of the Social Security Act

A GUIDE TO USING SSDI

One of the largest and easiest to access databases used for genealogical research is the Social Security Death Index (SSDI). Its information can be utilized to help you learn more about your ancestors, as well as your aunts, uncles and cousins.

Clues and facts from the SSDI often can be used to further genealogical research by enabling you to locate a death certificate, find an obituary, discover cemetery records and track down probate records.

Notepad As marvelous a finding aid as it is, the SSDI does not include the names of everyone, even if they had a Social Security number (SNN). If relatives or the funeral home did not report the death to the Social Security Administration, or if the individual died before 1962 (when the records were computerized) then they probably will not appear in this database. The omission of an individual in this index does not indicate the person is still living. It simply means that there was no report of the person's death to Social Security Administration.

When using the Social Security Death Index, in addition to the date of birth and date of death, there are three possible places included as well:

* State of issuance (where a person then lived and applied or the state in which the office that issued their social security number was located).
* Residence at time of death (this is really the address of record, but not necessarily where they lived or died).
* Death benefit (where the lump sum death benefit [burial allowance] was sent).

Notepad According to the Social Security Administration (SSA):

The nine-digit SSN is composed of three parts:
Dot The first set of three digits is called the Area Number
Dot The second set of two digits is called the Group Number
Dot The final set of four digits is the Serial Number

Notepad Area Number

The Area Number is assigned by the geographical region. Prior to 1972, cards were issued in local Social Security offices around the country and the Area Number represented the state in which the card was issued. This did not necessarily have to be the state where the applicant lived, since a person could apply for their card in any Social Security office. Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant's mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence. Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the state of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.

Notepad Generally, numbers were assigned beginning in the Northeast and moving westward. So people whose cards were issued in the East Coast states have the lowest numbers and those on the West Coast have the highest numbers.

Notepad (Complete list of the geographical number assignments.) By SSA.

Notepad The state of issuance (this is not necessarily the state of residence at the time of issuance) can be verified by looking at the Social Security number itself. The next two digits of the number are a code used to track fraudulent numbers. The last four digits are randomly assigned.

Notepad Beware of making assumptions about the state of residence at time of death. The one listed as "Last Residence" (more properly should be called "address of record") in SSDI is not necessarily the place of death. This was brought home when researching an individual who died while on vacation in Florida. His "last residence" shows up as New Hampshire, which was his legal residence (or address of record) at the time, but that is not where he died. Consider the possibility that a person might have had two official residences also; many "snowbirds" do.

Notepad Read the search results carefully. The actual place of death is not shown in the SSDI. Some records show where "last benefit" was sent, but that is not necessarily the place of death or the deceased's address of record either. "Last Benefit" only refers to the payment of the lump sum death benefit (a burial allowance of about $250 that went to the surviving spouse).

Notepad Keep in mind that ZIP codes given are those that existed at the time of the reported death and are not necessarily correct or the same as today's. ZIP codes have changed through the years.

Notepad Do not assume that the state in which the number was issued was the state of birth or even the state of residency at the time (see above).

Notepad Abbreviations. The following abbreviations or codes, which appear in some records in the "Last Residence" box, usually in parentheses, are internal codes used by SSA and do not mean anything to researchers. Ignore them.
(72) (PE)
(FO) (HC)
(VA)

Notepad (VA) does not stand for
Virginia or Veterans' Administration



Notepad Reasons you might not find someone in the SSDI

Dot Social Security officially was begun in 1937, with some payments being paid as early as 1940. However, the Social Security Death Index is the computerized index to deaths reported and/or death benefits paid out starting in 1962. The SSDI includes a few pre-1962 entries, but the great majority of those included in this index are from 1962 through the present time.

DotWhile the limitations of dates may exclude your family member, other reasons that your ancestor may not be included in the SSDI might have to do with his or her occupation or lack thereof.

DotPrior to the 1960s, farmers, housewives, government employees, non-employed individuals, and those with a separate retirement plan might not have had a Social Security number. It was not until 1988 that all children had to have Social Security numbers.



Notepad The "Application for a Social Security Number" is commonly referred to as the SS-5. In addition to the SSDI, you may find your ancestor's Social Security number in other ways, especially on death certificates. While it may seem like you are recreating the wheel to request the SS-5 form, there are times that this can be the only proof you will have for an ancestor's birth. For instance, for those ancestors born in the 1860s to 1880s who immigrated to the United States, it can difficult to pinpoint their place of birth. On the SS-5 it was required that the applicant supply complete birth information. This means more than just the country of birth, as is usually found on census and death records. Moreover, the maiden name of the applicant's mother was requested, often critical information for a family historian.

Notepad To request a photocopy of the original application for Social Security Card (SS-5), find the particular record of interest and let RootsWeb generate a printer-ready letter addressed to the Social Security Administration for you. Be sure to include the name of the individual, the Social Security number, date and place of death. You will need to include a check or money order for these records --- currently $27 if you have the Social Security number, $29 without the number. See chart below. The process of obtaining this information usually takes several months, so be patient.

Notepad Initially people relied heavily upon the 1880 and 1900 federal census to obtain proof of their births (that's why these enumerations were Soundexed --- a special index based on sound rather than spelling of a surname). Many delayed birth certificates were filed in order to prove age for Social Security purposes.

How to Correct Errors
in the SSDI

RootsWeb does not create, edit or correct information found in the Social Security Death Index. This database is created by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you believe that SSA has listed incorrectly someone as deceased (or has incorrect dates/data in the file), you should contact the local Social Security Office. It will be necessary to provide acceptable proof to have the error(s) corrected.

Notepad You can use RootsWeb's Post-em notes to indicate that your records differ from what SSA has, but this will not change the database.




Train

Railroad workers were enrolled in the same Social Security program, but from 1937 to 1963 they had numbers ranging between 700 and 728 as the first three digits. In 1964 their numbers began to reflect the same geographic location as other workers. Some railroad workers received Social Security benefits, but some did not. However, it is wise to check the SSDI in any case.

Notepad The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board was created in the 1930s, and has records dating back to 1937, but they exist only for those whose employers were covered under the Railroad Retirement Act. You can obtain information about deceased individuals for genealogical purposes. The records are arranged by Social Security number. If you do not know the number, provide as much identifying information as you have. Currently there is a $21 nonrefundable fee for a search in these records.

Enumerators of the 1830 census were asked to include the following categories in the census: name of head of household, number of free white males and females in age categories: 0 to 5, 5 to 10, 10 to 15, 15 to 20, 20 to 30, 30 to 40, 40 to 50, 50 to 60, 60 to 70, 70 to 80, 80 to 90, 90 to 100, over 100; the name of a slave owner and the number of slaves owned by that person; the number of male and female slaves by age categories; the number of foreigners (not naturalized) in a household; and the number of deaf, dumb and blind persons within a household. The categories allowed Congress to determine persons residing in the United States for collection of taxes and the appropriation of seats in the House of Representatives.

Nonpopulation census schedules for Tennessee, 1850-1880
Authors United States. Census Office United_States._Census_Office (Main Author)

Notes Microfilm of originals at the Duke University Library in Durham, North Carolina. Agricultural schedules pertain to every farm with an annual produce worth $100 (1850-1860)-$500 (1870-1880) or more for the year the enumeration was taken. The schedule includes the name of the owner, agent, or tenant and the kind and vlue of acreage, machinery, livestock, and produce. Industrial schedules (1850-1870) recorded information about mining, manufacturing, fisheries, and all kinds of mercantile, commercial, and trading businesses, if the annual gross product amounted to $500. The schedules show the name of the company or owner; kind of business; capital investment; and quantity and value of materials, labor, machinery, and products. Manufactures schedules (1880). Special agents, rather than the regular enumerators, recorded information for certain large industries and in cities of more than 8,000 inhabitants. These schedules are not extant. The regular enumerators did continue to collect information on general industry schedules and special schedules for twelve industries. The schedules show the name of the company or owner and much specific information about the kind, quantity, and value of materials, labor, machinery, and products.

Dear Alma

In response to your questions...

...As for Milton's death date I have listed that he died "after 1910." I did include a statement that said "his body was interred in Clouse Hill Cemetery Aug? 1911. (again only something that I might have picked up from someone, but nothing documented). In regards to the Sanders Family Books that I published, I don't know of any that are available. I have had a number of requests for additional ones, but have not at this time had any more made. Paul E. Sanders PTsans@aol.com <br>

Location: Tennessee State Library and Archives

Storage medium: book
Original source wording: Note from the Authors: .

Almost all the men named herein, where involved in actual c ampaigning, served in the Creek War of 1813-14 (a sub-confl ict of the war of 1812) or in the New Orleans campaign which culminated in the victory of the Americans at Chalmette i n Jan 1815.

Ironically, most deaths of Tennesseans where th e result of an apparent epidemic of some unknown malady aft er the war was over, in the late winter and spring of 1815 . History books do not seem to mention this epidemic but a perusal of the service records clearly reveals its existence. <br>

Note on Mrs. Ann Dixon

I learned of Ann through the reading of our Dixon Family History Book compiled by my "Dixon Cousin" Bobby Henson of Birmingham Alabama. As far as I can tell , little was known and/or written about her. After reading John Dickson's historical sketch, it appeared that she probably came to America with her husband and was possibly born in Ireland. Her maiden name is currently unknown. She died in Duplin County North Carolina in 1774; just 10 months before the death of her husband John. Again, I have come to these conclusions from "reading between the lines" and will update this record when more precise information is found. Alma aharings

SARA MICHELLE SANDERS
Born July 8, 2004 at 8:37 pm
New Parents: Jason and Sabine Sanders

How I Got the Good News About Sara:

The following email was originally sent to my first cousin in Iraq notifying him that he was now an Uncle to His brother Jason's first born child. This "good news" message filtered it's way thru the family and finally made it's way to me, via my Uncle Ed Sanders of Mason Ohio.


I have also attached the photos' of our newest Sanders Family addition which were taken directly after she was born.
Honestly, don't you think that most newborn babies are sorta wrinkled & funny looking---like maybe their not finished cooking??---like they need to be put back in the oven to bake for a few more months or something?

Well not this beauty! I have NEVER seen such a beautiful newborn. She is simply breathtaking. Sara Michelle Sanders. May she have a long, frutiful, healthy and happy life and may she never lose her sense of wonder.

Hi,

I will try to help you find the grave of your sister. I was raised in the Clintwood area and so were my parents. Since it is a small community, my mother may have know your grandmother Alma. In fact as a small child I remember visiting Roy and Hazel Dixon and their children (Doug, Ronnie & Melanie) who lived on Longs Fork (near Clintwood). I wonder if Roy and Alma were siblings. Also, I remember Ray Dixon. His daughter Connie still lives in the Longs Fork area. She was probably born about 1953/54, so she might know the cemetery where your sister is buried if this group of Dixon's are connected.

Also, I do a lot of Stanley genealogy and there is a Stanley cemetery located on a hill between the Longs Fork Elementary School and the AEP buildings. I would suspect this is the cemetery in question. However, if your sister did not have a permanent marker, then it would be difficult to discern her grave. Perhaps your best chance of locating the grave is to find a relative who attended the funeral and remembers where the grave is located.

Where do you live? I go to Clintwood at least once a month to visit my Mom who lives near Longs Fork. We could plan to meet and I will take you to the Stanley cemetery on Longs Fork if that's not too far for you to travel.

Hi,

Here's more info regarding you sister Debbie and burial location. This info was provided to me by my Mother.

"The Alma you are asking about was the daughter of Rev. J. E. and Sally Dixon. Their daughter's name was Peggy, who married a Daily and the
granddaughter was Debbie. Debbie died very young and is buried in the Stanley Cemetery at Longs Fork, along with her grandparents, mother and
uncle Ray. I called and talked to Roy and Hazel. Alma and Roy were siblings."

I hope this will help you. If you need my help again, please contact me.

Anita preferred "Ann" as her middle name and dropped the "E">
June 2004
My mother in law recently celebrated her 81st birthday. She has proven over and over again that unconditional love is not a myth. This lady has a heart of pure gold . She has had a full and rewarding life. As I write, I realize that she was able to achieve this through honoring and helping others. Anita was a registered nurse and was trained at the Mayo Clinic. She later became an administrator for a nursing facility in Wisconsin. She married her first love and had three sons. I married one of them and am grateful for her life, her love and friendship. She lost her husband Capt. Peter J Harings, Jr in 2000 and she still grieves deeply . I honestly believe that she is ready to be with him now. She has taught me a great deal about matters of the heart and I love her deeply.
Anita Anne Bylander-Harings: You are now 81 and more beautiful then ever.. I love you.

Alma E Dailey-Harings
01/2004
ANITA & PETER were married (for the first time) on January 22, 1944 in a civil ceremony in Anita's hometown of Eau Claire Wisconsin. Anita's father, (Henning Bylander) was a good friend of Judge Farr-- also of Eau Claire and arranged for the Judge to perform the ceremony at the local County court house.

At that time Anita was a Lutheran and Peter was a practicing Catholic. They both would have preferred a church wedding but was unable to come to an acceptable arrangement between themselves or their families. The young couple realized that time was of the essence so they opted for the civil ceremony.

Anita's parents held a reception for the newlyweds at their home in Eau Claire. The couple finally boarded a train later that same afternoon heading for Chicago. (See photo) Anita said that she enjoyed her first dinner as Mrs. Peter Harings that evening while being entertained by Cab Calloway. Hi De Ho!!

As previously mentioned, Pete was serving as an intelligence officer in the Army Air Corp & was stationed at Walterboro, South Carolina. He received his orders and was scheduled to ship out with his squadron during the second week of February. So after their quick civil ceremony, they spent the remainder of time together leisurely travelling south by train toward Walterboro.

Pete's father, a very strict and devout Catholic, was concerned that this new union had not been properly blessed. Before they left Eau Claire, Mr. Harings demanded that they have a priest bless their union before Peter Jr. leave for England. A Catholic wedding ceremony had been arranged and took take place on base as soon as they arrived in SC. (As told to me by my mother in law, Anita Bylander Harings, during the summer of 2003)

<font color=blue size=+2><b>The Coppinger Journal [ca 1833] </b></font>

The following information was originally given to Mike Fromholt by Betty M Majors during his trip to McMinnville Tennseesse in 1999. Betty said that it came from a photocopy of a book that was in the possession of a Trudy Coppinger and how this "Trudy" fits into the Cope family line has yet to be discovered. On the margin of the book was written "Bought in Warren County on the 1st thursday in August on Eleection Day in 1833." The Females Praticle Monitor or Guide to Health" by Thom A Anderson,M.D., 1832".<BR>
It appears that this was someones personal journal where they kept a running log of the family births and deaths . It lists all 16 children of Stephen and Comfort Cope as well as some of the descendants and other associated family members. The information given within this journal has been found to be consistently correct and as far as I know, there are only two people in this list that Mike F. has been unable to identify as descendants of Stephen and Comfort. The two entries in question are Earnest Sanders and Livsay Sanders even though it is suspected they are associated with the line of Lousia Cope and Andrew Sanders. <BR>

<font color=blue size=+2><b>The Coppinger Journal [ca 1833] </b></font>

The following information was originally given to Mike Fromholt by Betty M Majors during his trip to McMinnville Tennseesse in 1999. Betty said that it came from a photocopy of a book that was in the possession of a Trudy Coppinger and how this "Trudy" fits into the Cope family line has yet to be discovered. On the margin of the book was written "Bought in Warren County on the 1st thursday in August on Eleection Day in 1833." The Females Praticle Monitor or Guide to Health" by Thom A Anderson,M.D., 1832".<BR>
It appears that this was someones personal journal where they kept a running log of the family births and deaths . It lists all 16 children of Stephen and Comfort Cope as well as some of the descendants and other associated family members. The information given within this journal has been found to be consistently correct and as far as I know, there are only two people in this list that Mike F. has been unable to identify as descendants of Stephen and Comfort. The two entries in question are Earnest Sanders and Livsay Sanders even though it is suspected they are associated with the line of Lousia Cope and Andrew Sanders. <BR>
<I>This was the first document I found which offered a birthdate for my great grandfather Wm L Sanders as well as info about his mother: Salina Patton Cope (Sanders) b. Mar 8, 1838 - d. 23 June 1871. All was later verified as correct through comparison with primary source records currently in my possession. (ie: death/marriage certs) </I> <BR>

According to the contributer, Betty M Majors of McMinnville TN., the original data was discovered in an old book that was believed to have been in the possession or belongings of a Trudy Coppinger. Betty gave this data to Cope Family Researcher, Mike Fromholt during his trip to the McMinnville Tennessee area in 1999. On the books margin was written "Bought in Warren County on the 1st Thursday in August on Election Day in 1833."The Females Practical Monitor or Guide to Health" by Thom A. Anderson, M.D., 1832". This was someone's journal, as they kept records of the family in it. Who the original owner was is unknown at this time. Mike F. typed the contents of the journal as it was written- and I have copied his transcription below:

The following information was originally given to Mike Fromholt by Betty M Majors during his trip to McMinnville Tennseesse in 1999. Betty said that it came from a photocopy of a book that was in the possession of a Trudy Coppinger and how this "Trudy" fits into the Cope family line has yet to be discovered. On the margin of the book was written "Bought in Warren County on the 1st thursday in August on Eleection Day in 1833."

It appears that this was someones personal journal where they kept a running log of the family births and deaths . It lists all 16 children of Stephen and Comfort Cope as well as some of the descendants and other associated family members.

Subject: Our History

From: Ed Sanders <esanders@cinci.rr.com>
To: Alma Harings <aharings@cox.net>

Libby, Since my accident I sometimes have trouble putting thing together. For example; if you ask me two questions I have no problem responding to the first but by that time I have forgotten the second question. Does that make sense to you? I have wanted to tell you the story of part of our lives that most likely affect you the most.
We moved from Trafford, Alabama in 1950 to Shreveport. I found out later that Aunt Elsie had gotten dad the job that took us to Shreveport and it had something to do with the government. I never knew exactly what dad did for them but at least he had a job and we had a roof over our heads. Life for me as a 12 - 15 year old was to do whatever it took to entertain myself and to make as many friends as possible. I loved Shreveport and have always felt like it was home although we were only there for three years before dad died and we wound up back in Jenkins. Soon after Paul was born in 1952 mom developed a goiter in her throat. It worsened each day to the point that she was pretty much incapacitated and Peggy became mother to Paul and Gary. She was also the house keeper and cook. I spent most of my time running with my friends as for the most part was unaware of the seriousness of moms illness. Peggy was taken out of school and became the homemaker. Dad showed up on some weekends and stayed drunk most of the time. We really did not have a family life and I drifted away from the rest of them spending most of my time with friends. I became aware of moms illness when she was taken to Oak Ridge, Tennessee for radiation treatment for the goiter. She must have been close to death when they took her to Oak Ridge. Peggy became the main stay in the house for dad showed up only occasionally and spent most of the time at home in bed drunk. Then Aunt Edna came to stay with us for about three weeks and she made Peggy's life more miserable that it already was. I hate to speak badly of the dead but that woman was a devil. She beat your mother and once tied her to a table to make sure that she didn't leave the house. Again, I was gone most of the time and had no idea how bad it was at home and in reality, was too stupid to know what was going on or to do anything about it. Finally Edna left and it wasn't more than a couple of weeks that a man that dad worked with came to the house at told Peggy and I that dad had died. A church group came to the house and packed us up and Peggy and I brought Paul and Gary by train back to Jenkins for dads funeral. I always thought that the church group was responsible for preparing us for the trip and paying our way back to Kentucky. But, years later found out that it was mom's sisters and brothers that had paid our way and also paid for dads funeral. I don't remember any premonitions about dad's death and don't much believe in them but, respect those who do. Grand Dad Sanders and uncle Hatton and his son attended dad's funeral and I rode back to Alabama with them. Uncle Hatton was without a doubt the cheapest person I've ever met. He would have his son (Who was driving) buy only one dollars worth of gasoline when we stopped. And, Grand Pa Sanders would buy a pound of baloney and a loaf of bread and that is what we had to eat on the trip back to Alabama. I stayed a few days with Grand Pa and he gave me the money to buy a bus ticket back to Shreveport. I joined the Army shortly after I arrived and spent the next few months traveling the far east. After I left the Army mom and family had move back to Jenkins. I had no idea how bad off financially that they were. Moms sisters and brothers had helped them about as much as they could because all of them were just about as poor as we were. I left in the fall of 1954 for the Air Force. Peggy became pregent with her first child about that time and as you know later lost her baby. Mom move her family to Cincinnati shortly after that. She, Peggy and the boys suffered badly from lack of food and health care. Mom and Peggy worked at a factory in Cincinnati for what was called "Piece Work". Both struggled to make a home for Paul and Gary and then Peggy became pregnant with you. I visited a few times during this period and learned that Peggy was pregnant and met Bob Plummer for the first time. Bob and I hit it off and he told me that he was the one who had impregnated Peggy and had begged her to marry him. He asked me to help him convince her to marry him and that he would make a home for the two of you. Peggy would have nothing to do with that idea and rejected him. I don't know why but I firmly believe that Bob was indeed your father. Bob really loved your mother and did as much for her as she would allow him to do. I am going to end this letter now and hope that it will add a little of our history to what you already know. I will write again soon and will email some photos in the next few days. Love, Uncle Ed

<center><font color=blue size=+1>Seeking Information on Douglas Warren Dailey </font></center>
<br>
<b>Douglas Warren Dailey</b> was born in the state of Kentucky on 21 Nov 1933. I found his state of birth listed on my sisters death certificate as well as my cert of birth. Even so, I have been unable to find any other supporting evidence after years of searching. I spent the majority of my life believing that he was my biological father as he was listed as such on my birth certificate. I finally learned that he <bold>was not</bold> my father just prior to my 40th birthday but was still heartbroken when a family member told me the sad truth surrounding his death. It appears that Douglas commited suicide at his mothers home located somewhere on <b>Pound Mountain just outside of Wise Virginia</b> in the late 60s or early 70's.
I searched the SSDI for Douglas and found what I believe was probably his death record . Unfortunately this record offered little else and has been copied below. I would appreciate any and all information about this man and would keep all sources confidential. <br>

1850 & 1860 Grundy Co TN Census Records show the widowed Barbara Layne living with her son Daniel Layne during this 10 year period. To my knowledge, no further record has been found for Barbara after the taking of the 1860 census where she was listed as a 90 year old widow born in NC.

Prior to 1850, several spelling variations for this famlies name were used; Lane, Lain or Layne) It appears that after 1850 the family used the spelling LAYNE
exclusively .

About Rube Dickson

Ask anyone in the family and you'll get a different story on the birthdate and age of Rube Dickson. His first hand infup to the US Census Taker on 6 June 1900, Jefferson County, says he was born in Tennessee, 30 Jan 1880 and that he was 20 yrs old. At the time he was boarding with his sister Sallie and her husband, John Lowery. Rube did a lot of "hoboing" according to his family. He clearly was a Scotchman, with a big nose, big ears and a drum inside him that kept hom moving as the old Scottish Clans did. He did settle down long enough to marry Kate Francher in about 1907 of Shelby County, Alabama. He was living in the boarding house run by his sister, Sallie, in the Coalmont Community (near present day Town of Helena) with his wife Katie and two yearl old daughter, Ruby C., according to the US Census of 1910-Alabama Shelby County.

Even though James Dickson was born and died in Duplin County_he moved around as did his restless brothers and cousins. He went first to SC to visit his relatives about the time Reuben was born_to claim bounty land_but returned to NC for reasons we are not sure. ( Maybe he wanted to be close to his father as the dark clouds that would lead to the Revolutionary War were gathering) <BR>
<ul> James and Dorthy had 9 children:
<li>Reuben b. 1767 SC</li>
<li>Edward b. April 17 1775 NC</li>
<li>William Pearsall b. Oct 7 1781 NC</li>
<li>Alexander b. Feb 20 1784 NC</li>
<li>Ellinor</li>
<li>Margaret</li>
<li>Elizabeth</li>
<li>Anne</li>
<li>Name Unknown</li></ul> <BR>
James Dickson acquired bounty land in SC May 28 1767 under the Bounty Act of 1761. Many Dickson cousins moved to SC from NC. Although James claimed his SC bounty land we know he went back to NC where he served in the Morgan District of Lincoln County Revolutionary War Militia as #3169 in Warringtons Company. We do not know exactly why he served in the home gaurd Militia_but it could have been due to his large family_the close proximity to his elderly parents ( and Uncles)_plus there was limited military activity in that area of NC. However_James was awarded <I> much land in Tennessee</I> for his service rendered _but we can find no record detailing his actual service. Given this_we have concluded that James may have been a spy. ( The following Pg 46-B in my Dixon Family History Book offers a copy of Index [Pg 372] listing James as one of the NC Rev War Soldiers ) See my source notes to obtain copy of book aed-h <BR>
<b>Dixon Family History Book Page 47</b> <BR>
Nevertheless for this service_he was eligible for bounty lands in western NC_TN_in the Pendelton District of SC and eventually in GA. In SC James Dickson received land in the Pendelton District in what is now Newberry county on <I>Garvin s Creek of 23 Mile River on the Savannah River. </I>
Our grandpa Reuben Dickson also applied for land in the Pendleton District 1786-1788 time frames and was awarded two plots in the upper Spartanburg County area of Pendleton; one for 640 acres and one was for 360 acres_both on the Pacolet River. (Note: This River is along the boundaries of Spartanburg and Cherokee County in extreme NW SC. <b>Reubin Dickson</b> was found listed within the Indexes of <I>Location Book A SC 1784-1786 </I> as well as <I>Book C SC 1785-1788</I> ) aed-h <BR>
James Dickson is shown on the Chatham Co GA tax list in 1793 being in the 3rd District. He also received goods as a friend in the Will of William Thompson. (Will Book A_March 12th and 18th_ 1794) <BR>
James Dickson first received 200 acres of bounty land in Washing County GA in 1788 as he continued his southward trek. He later received 100 acres more land in Washington County in 1790 and in 1800 he received 210 acres more. In 1799_James s son <b>Reuben Dickson</b> received 347 acres of his own bounty land in Washington County GA. (the land having been originally surveyed in July 12_1781_next to his cousins_Michael Dickson and Thomas Dickson. <BR>
Washington County was originally formed Feb 25 1784 from lands of the Creek Indian Cession of 1783. Sandersonville is the County Seat. From the large original County of Washington the counties of Greene_Hancock_Johnson and Montgomery were later formed. A terrible fire in 1855 destroyed all of the records of this coundy including the marriage license of <b>Rueben and Polly Dickson</b>. <BR>
We know that times were hard on the frontier for our grandparents. Reuben Dickson appears on Washington County records as a tax-defaulter in Captain Irwin s District in 1791. The writer (Bobby Henson) feels this was because he and his father were already looking to join their cousins and sons in East TN. Reuben also served in the GA Militia in Washington Co being accounted in Capt Parrott s Co in 1793_5th Co. 1st Btn. 2nd Regiment_so he had not yet left for Tennessee. Reubens land was recorded in Deed Book D-E in Washington County GA. <BR>
Reuben Sr. registered twice for land in the 1805 GA Lottery_but failed to obtain any on either pull. To draw twice he had to be married which he was. He does not appear in the 1800 US Census of the Pendleton District. <BR>
Apparently Reuben Sr moved back to NC with his father around 1805 as his first two children are born there. <BR>
<b>Dickson Family History Book Page #48 continued...</b>
Also_his father had been granted bounty land in extreme northeast Tennessee on the Holston River in 1787 time frame_Patent #2798. They may have explored that land for a short time after leaving GA. Reuben Sr and family appear on this land in US Census 1810 on the Holston in what is now Grainger County. <BR>
The land on which Reuben Sr_his wife Polly and family settled upon <I>on the northside of the Holston River</I> was in the old original county of Grainger TN which was formed in 1796 from parts of Hawkins and Knox Counties_with its county seat at Rutledge. Later the part of Grainger County in which Reuben Sr settled was moved into what is now Overton Co. TN. <BR>
Reuben Sr and Polly Dickson raised their family and appear to have lived out their lives in Overton County except for an excursion into Lawrence County in 1820. While retaining his land in Grainger/Overton Co_Reuben Sr and Polly appear in 1820 US Census with his sons John and Reuben Jr. John was born in 1805 in NC and Reuben Jr was born in NC in 1809. Lucy was born in 1822 in TN. We also reason to believe that Reuben Sr had three other sons_James_Samuel and Huey since these young men appear in Lawrence and later in Franklin Counties. Our research also indicates that another family_perhaps Pollys parents or older brothers and sisters may have lived within the household of Reuben Sr. Reuben Sr may have been married twice as he is much older (33 years) than Polly. His earlier records were burnin in the devastating fire which burned all records and the Courthouse of Washington Co GA in 1855. <BR>
In the US Census TN_1830_Reuben Sr is found again with his family in Overton Co TN on land his father had received in bounty.
( Note: His father James had returned to Duplin Co where he died in 1812). Reuben Jr and Lucy stayed in a part of Lawrence Co which was now White County. <BR>
On 17 January 1838 our grandpa Reuben Jr Married the lovely Sarah Harriett Newman Baites and he is in southern TN in Franklin Co north of the City of Winchester TN in a settlement called Estille Springs. His father Reuben SR is still living in Overton Co. <BR>

48. New Hope Regular Baptist Church

New Hope Regular Baptist Church, apparently located near the original New Hope Church on Big Horse Creek, was admitted into the Mountain Union Baptist Association in 1925 as a "newly organized church." In 1929, the associational minutes note: "Pursuant to an order of the Association, we, the undersigned committee, met at New Hope Church July 20, 1929 and organized by appoiting Elder W. S. Eller, Moderator and Elder Daniel Blevins, Clerk. Elder A. F. Miller on being interrogated said that he believed all Christians regardless of what church or denomination they belonged to, should commune together at the Lord's Supper. Thue church by a standing vote approved Elder A. F. Miller's doctrine in regard to the communion. Elder W. S. Eller, Moderate, Elder Daniel Blevins, Clerk and C. L. Barker, Committee." In 1931 the church reapplied for membership, stating that it was standing on the articles of faith. The association accepted them back into the fold.

This church is a member of the Mountain Union Baptist Association.

Canzada's Brothers were Ore Miners at Shaw, Georgia

Perhaps having learned the mining trade in Grundy County, as did Grandpa W. T. Dickson Grandma's brothers also were miners. They worked mines operated by the Estelle Mining Company at Shaw, Georgia in Walker County. At the height of its operation this company employed 235 men. This mining community provided over 175 homes for the miners and their families. A commissary provided for all the needs of the employees and their families from furniture to clothing, groceries and household goods. There were two schools with an enrollment of 190 children. The County maintained both of the schools and the men at Estelle subscribed to over 70% of the cost and retained a doctor for medical attention. The Estelle property consisted of 1600 acres and had a blacksmith shop, machine shop, and carpenter shop, steam plant, sawmill and a supply house. There was a 6-mile narrow gauge railroad called the "Dinky" which began at the crusher and ran through 7 tunnels to the mines. Ore was hauled from the mines to the crusher on this railroad. As the demand for ore started to wane, operations at the mines began to slacken and finally ceased in 1924. At the height of its operation and due to a shortage of qualified miners, boys as young as seven would help load ore. Ten-year-old boys worked at the crusher and at the age of 12, the boys could go underground as "mule" boys. The mule boys would leave home by 6:00 a.m. to get the mules ready to enter the mines at 6:30 a.m. The mule boys worked 10 hours a day for 20 cents per hour. Push boys, crushers, firemen, engineers and breakies were some of the other jobs available to the men and boys who lived in the area. Sunday was the day off and was the day for recreation. If the miners weren't fishing or hunting or playing horseshoes, they could be found at the baseball field. The Estelle crew played teams from Durham, LaFayette and Chickamauga.
Among the hundreds of men and boys who worked in the Estelle iron ore mines were Canzada's brothers, William and Charlie Kilgore and will's sons, Bill, Gord and Willie.

<font color=red size=+1><b>What is an Ahnentafel?</b></font> <br>
From a German word meaning "ancestor table," an Ahnentafel (or Ahnenreihe) is a list of a person's ancestors in a particular order. It is a construct used in genealogy to display a person's ancestry compactly, without the need for a diagram such as a family tree, which is particularly useful in situations where one may be restricted to using plain text, <br>
After listing the person as #1, you list their father as #2 and their mother as #3, then their grandparents as #4 to #7, and so on back through the generations. In this scheme, any person's father has double that person's number, and a person's mother has double the person's number plus one. Apart from #1, who can be male or female, all even-numbered persons are male, and all odd-numbered persons are female.<BR>

Joe Donald Dixon

Joe Donald was the name given to the seventh child of John Edward and Sallie Mae Dixon. Joe was born 14 May 1929 at Coeburn, Wise county, Virginia. Joe worked for continental Can Company, was a veteran of four years in the U. S. Army and attended the Baptist Church. Joe married Geraldine "Gerry" Bolling on 22 February 1947 at Whitesburg, Letcher County, Kentucky. Gerry was born 16 April 1930 at George's Fork, Dickenson County, Virginia to William Edward Bolling and Cora Edith Stanley.

Gerry and Joe Dixon's first child was a son, Donald Edward, born 10 December 1947 at Baltimore, Baltimore County, Maryland. Donald Edward is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University. Donald died 4 September 1989 at Manassas and was buried on 7 September 1989 at Stonewall Memorial Gardens at Manassas, Prince Williams County, Virginia. Gerry and Joe Dixon's second child is a daughter, Patricia Aleda, born 30 November 1948 at Clintwood, Wise County, Virginia. On 8 June 1968, she married Earl Warren Allue at Haymarket, Prince William County, Virginia. Eugene was born 13 July 1947 at Denver, "Adams County, Colorado to Eugene Anthony Allue and the former Margaret Sperry.

Stanley Cem/Clintwood Va..Roy & Hazel../Peggy-Warren- & Debs grave

I will try to help you find the grave of your sister. I was raised in the Clintwood area and so were my parents. Since it is a small community, my mother may have know your grandmother Alma. In fact as a small child I remember visiting Roy and Hazel Dixon and their children (Doug, Ronnie & Melanie) who lived on Longs Fork (near Clintwood). I wonder if Roy and Alma were siblings. Also, I remember Ray Dixon. His daughter Connie still lives in the Longs Fork area. She was probably born about 1953/54, so she might know the cemetery where your sister is buried if this group of Dixon's are connected.

Also, I do a lot of Stanley genealogy and there is a Stanley cemetery located on a hill between the Longs Fork Elementary School and the AEP buildings. I would suspect this is the cemetery in question. However, if your sister did not have a permanent marker, then it would be difficult to discern her grave. Perhaps your best chance of locating the grave is to find a relative who attended the funeral and remembers where the grave is located.

Where do you live? I go to Clintwood at least once a month to visit my Mom who lives near Longs Fork. We could plan to meet and I will take you to the Stanley cemetery on Longs Fork if that's not too far for you to travel.

Hi,

Here's more info regarding you sister Debbie and burial location. This info was provided to me by my Mother.

"The Alma you are asking about was the daughter of Rev. J. E. and Sally Mae Taylor-Dixon. Their daughter's name was Peggy, who married a Daily and the
granddaughter was Debbie. Debbie died very young and is buried in the Stanley Cemetery at Longs Fork, along with her grandparents, mother and
uncle Ray. I called and talked to Roy and Hazel. Alma and Roy were siblings."

I hope this will help you. If you need my help again, please contact me.

<b>Excerpts from Our Dixon Family History Book Regarding James Dickson (b 1750 NC ) </b>
<I> including some corrections & additions by Alma aed-h</I> <BR>
<b>Page 46</b> <BR>
James was the 8th and last son of John Dickson was born May 9 1750 in Duplin County North Carolina. He died in April 1812 in Duplin County (sic: May 10 1812 as found in DAR-Patriot Index aed-h) <BR>
He first married Dorthy PEARSALL ( DAR-Patriot Index aed-h) in about 1766 and later married Susannah Carr (widow of James Carr). <BR>
Even though James Dickson was born and died in Duplin County_he moved around as did his restless brothers and cousins. He went first to SC to visit his relatives about the time Reuben was born_to claim bounty land_but returned to NC for reasons we are not sure. ( Maybe he wanted to be close to his father as the dark clouds that would lead to the Revolutionary War were gathering) <BR>
<ul> James and Dorthy had 9 children:
<li>Reuben b. 1767 SC</li>
<li>Edward b. April 17 1775 NC</li>
<li>William Pearsall b. Oct 7 1781 NC</li>
<li>Alexander b. Feb 20 1784 NC</li>
<li>Ellinor</li>
<li>Margaret</li>
<li>Elizabeth</li>
<li>Anne</li>
<li>Name Unknown</li></ul> <BR>
James Dickson acquired bounty land in SC May 28 1767 under the Bounty Act of 1761. Many Dickson cousins moved to SC from NC. Although James claimed his SC bounty land we know he went back to NC where he served in the Morgan District of Lincoln County Revolutionary War Militia as #3169 in Warringtons Company. We do not know exactly why he served in the home gaurd Militia_but it could have been due to his large family_the close proximity to his elderly parents ( and Uncles)_plus there was limited military activity in that area of NC. However_James was awarded <I> much land in Tennessee</I> for his service rendered _but we can find no record detailing his actual service. Given this_we have concluded that James may have been a spy. ( The following Pg 46-B in my Dixon Family History Book offers a copy of Index [Pg 372] listing James as one of the NC Rev War Soldiers ) See my source notes to obtain copy of book aed-h <BR>
<b>Dixon Family History Book Page 47</b> <BR>
Nevertheless for this service_he was eligible for bounty lands in western NC_TN_in the Pendelton District of SC and eventually in GA. In SC James Dickson received land in the Pendelton District in what is now Newberry county on <I>Garvin s Creek of 23 Mile River on the Savannah River. </I>
Our grandpa Reuben Dickson also applied for land in the Pendleton District 1786-1788 time frames and was awarded two plots in the upper Spartanburg County area of Pendleton; one for 640 acres and one was for 360 acres_both on the Pacolet River. (Note: This River is along the boundaries of Spartanburg and Cherokee County in extreme NW SC. <b>Reubin Dickson</b> was found listed within the Indexes of <I>Location Book A SC 1784-1786 </I> as well as <I>Book C SC 1785-1788</I> ) aed-h <BR>
James Dickson is shown on the Chatham Co GA tax list in 1793 being in the 3rd District. He also received goods as a friend in the Will of William Thompson. (Will Book A_March 12th and 18th_ 1794) <BR>
James Dickson first received 200 acres of bounty land in Washing County GA in 1788 as he continued his southward trek. He later received 100 acres more land in Washington County in 1790 and in 1800 he received 210 acres more. In 1799_James s son <b>Reuben Dickson</b> received 347 acres of his own bounty land in Washington County GA. (the land having been originally surveyed in July 12_1781_next to his cousins_Michael Dickson and Thomas Dickson. <BR>
Washington County was originally formed Feb 25 1784 from lands of the Creek Indian Cession of 1783. Sandersonville is the County Seat. From the large original County of Washington the counties of Greene_Hancock_Johnson and Montgomery were later formed. A terrible fire in 1855 destroyed all of the records of this coundy including the marriage license of <b>Rueben and Polly Dickson</b>. <BR>
We know that times were hard on the frontier for our grandparents. Reuben Dickson appears on Washington County records as a tax-defaulter in Captain Irwin s District in 1791. The writer (Bobby Henson) feels this was because he and his father were already looking to join their cousins and sons in East TN. Reuben also served in the GA Militia in Washington Co being accounted in Capt Parrott s Co in 1793_5th Co. 1st Btn. 2nd Regiment_so he had not yet left for Tennessee. Reubens land was recorded in Deed Book D-E in Washington County GA. <BR>
Reuben Sr. registered twice for land in the 1805 GA Lottery_but failed to obtain any on either pull. To draw twice he had to be married which he was. He does not appear in the 1800 US Census of the Pendleton District. <BR>
Apparently Reuben Sr moved back to NC with his father around 1805 as his first two children are born there. <BR>
<b>Dickson Family History Book Page #48 continued...</b>
Also_his father had been granted bounty land in extreme northeast Tennessee on the Holston River in 1787 time frame_Patent #2798. They may have explored that land for a short time after leaving GA. Reuben Sr and family appear on this land in US Census 1810 on the Holston in what is now Grainger County. <BR>
The land on which Reuben Sr_his wife Polly and family settled upon <I>on the northside of the Holston River</I> was in the old original county of Grainger TN which was formed in 1796 from parts of Hawkins and Knox Counties_with its county seat at Rutledge. Later the part of Grainger County in which Reuben Sr settled was moved into what is now Overton Co. TN. <BR>
Reuben Sr and Polly Dickson raised their family and appear to have lived out their lives in Overton County except for an excursion into Lawrence County in 1820. While retaining his land in Grainger/Overton Co_Reuben Sr and Polly appear in 1820 US Census with his sons John and Reuben Jr. John was born in 1805 in NC and Reuben Jr was born in NC in 1809. Lucy was born in 1822 in TN. We also reason to believe that Reuben Sr had three other sons_James_Samuel and Huey since these young men appear in Lawrence and later in Franklin Counties. Our research also indicates that another family_perhaps Pollys parents or older brothers and sisters may have lived within the household of Reuben Sr. Reuben Sr may have been married twice as he is much older (33 years) than Polly. His earlier records were burnin in the devastating fire which burned all records and the Courthouse of Washington Co GA in 1855. <BR>
In the US Census TN_1830_Reuben Sr is found again with his family in Overton Co TN on land his father had received in bounty.
( Note: His father James had returned to Duplin Co where he died in 1812). Reuben Jr and Lucy stayed in a part of Lawrence Co which was now White County. <BR>
On 17 January 1838 our grandpa Reuben Jr Married the lovely Sarah Harriett Newman Baites and he is in southern TN in Franklin Co north of the City of Winchester TN in a settlement called Estille Springs. His father Reuben SR is still living in Overton Co. <BR>

In the 1930 Virginia Census record for Lipps Township, John Edeard Dixon was listed as the head of household and was living with his wife Sallie and his five children. John was listed as a 55 year old married male that married for the first time at age 35. The Census record not only tells us that John was born in TN, but that his parents were born in TN as well. His occupation was listed as a coal miner who could read and write and the record did indicate that John could read and write.

His wife Sallie was listed as 39 years old in 1930; age 19 at the time of her first marriage. The numbers would indicate that John and Sallie were both involved in their first marriage to one another. Sallie is listed as being born in GA along with that of her parents also. Sallie was a housewife (who could read and write).

Their children were listed as follosw, Loretta 15 born in Ga; Alma 10 born in Va; Ray 5 born in Va; Roy 3 born in Va; and Joe 1 also born in Va.

Below you will find an Excerpt from a letter written by Cope Family Researcher, Mike Fromholt of Indiana. I am trying to track down the Sanders or Cope Family who raised my gg grandfather, Wm L Sanders of Tracy City Tennessee and the following is Mike's response to my inquiry. Alma Harings aharings@cox.net

Dear Alma

.........About WIlliam Lafayette Sanders and George Mack Cope.

Seems I've been trying to find stuff on George since day one, he went by the name of Mack. He's not on any census records after his first marraige to Mary Gilley, who was a good ten years his senior, as she was also a widow of a Powell (Probably Jerome), then he was found on hte 1910 census, marrried to a Elizabeth, who was fourten years younger than he. They had only been married for ten years, and there was a child named Calvin, but his age was listed as fourteen. And of course, there's his death records from Grundy County, which says his parents, in 1915, and he was buried in Orange Hill Cemetery. No marker can be found.
So, he possibly could have raised William Lafayette. He would make more sense as any of the otehrs, since I have seen the earlier census records of the others. Wo was living near William on hte 1900 census? That may hold a clue. Will check and see when I get soem time and once doine digging outr from our snowfall, may be a few weeks, as we're going to Michigan and enjoy an indoor pool for the weekend next week, and going to Dayton the following weekend.

happy huntin'

<font color=blue size=+1>About Homecoming ' 86... History of The Elk River Valley (Pelham Valley) of Grundy County, TN </font> <BR>

This local history publication compiled by Arlene Partin Bean, Janelle Layne Coats was the re-telling of family history stories taken from interviews done in the Pelham Valley area of Grundy County Tennessee during the 1880s.

Given this one must realize that a fact or two may be misconstrued along the way, even so, there will be much more truth than fiction found within these oral histories.

Our early Sanders family ancestors arrived in the area known as present day Grundy County Tennessee shortly after the turn of the 19th century and became one of the first families to settle there. When my great great great grandfather Thomas Sanders Sr first arrived in the Pelham Valley along with the family of his paternal uncle, Solomon Sanders of Craven County North Carolina (1740-1837), the clan settled in the area known as Payne's Cove (abt 1805). The following sketch from Homecoming 86 offers a bit of early history surround the Cove as well as a Sanders family honorable mention:



<BR>
<font color=blue size=+1> History of Paynes CoveTennessee</font> <BR>
Thomas Payne Sr and wife Yannaka Ayers owned land with their son, Poindexter Payne, in Franklin County, GA. They sold their land in 1822, and Poindexter moved to Pendleton County, SC. At some point between 1811 and 1820, he and his family migrated to Franklin County, TN. When the 1820 census was taken, Poindexter Payne was living in Franklin County, TN, and was reported to be over 45 years old. He had living with him: 3 males under 10, 1 male, age 16-18, 1male, age 18-28, 2 females under 10, 2 females, age 16-18, 1 female, age 26-45. The latter was wife, Annie Bell Hill. <BR>
Poindexter and Annie Bell settled in the protected reaches of what is now their namesake, Payne's Cove. According to oral history the first Payne settlement was right at the base of Spring Hollow, just northeast of Roberts' Cemetery. The old homestead was located by a spring which supplied water, and the nearby forest supplied game. <BR>
A grandson of Poindexter Payne gave his name to the ridge which separates Payne's Cove & Burrows' Coves. He was William Elson ?Bud? Payne who built a log house on the ridge and raised a family there with his wife Mary Angeline Meeks. Jerome Payne still talks of the peach orchard his daddy planted on the side of the mountain and of the good water which came from the spring on the ridge. Mary Elsie (Payne) Layne, Bud & Angie's daughter, related stories of the night hikes along a narrow path to church either at Bethel or Payne's Cove. There is no house on the ridge today, only the remains of an ancient rock chimney. Somewhere near the garden, now a mass of trees, are the graves of the twin girls, lost at birth, who would have been a part of this mountain family. <I>The Payne & Sanders families appear to have been contemporaries in the cove. Although neither family surname is now represented in Payne's Cove, there are many descendants. </I> <BR>

PATRICK PORTER:
AN EARLY PIONEER OF THE CLINCH
By Omer C. Addington

The family name, Porter, is derived from the Latin verb "portarious" (to carry). Portarious goes back to the time when the Roman legions invaded Britain. They were the ones who carried supplies and equipment and were gate keepers. When the verb portarious was made to conform to English usage, it became Porter.
After the decline of the Roman Empire, some of the Porters moved from Britain to Ireland.
A historical note states that the Porters moved from County Down, in Ireland, to Pennsylvania about 1726. Benjamin and Ann Campbell Porter were among the immigrants that came to Pennsylvania. Their son, Patrick, the early pioneer on the Clinch, was born in Pennsylvania on May 1, 1737. The HISTORY OF SCOTT COUNTY states he was born in Ireland, but we now know that he was never in Ireland.
The Porters moved to the upper Yadkin Valley in North Carolina. There they met the Walkers. Patrick married Susanna Walker in 1756. He was living in Orange Co., NC, when he and others petitioned that a new county be formed to be called Guilford. He must have lived in Guilford County for some time. His prayer book lists his children as being born in Guilford Co., NC.
Patrick and some of the Walkers visited Castlewood (Moore's Fort) and part of the Clinch River Valley in 1769. He was looking for free land, and plenty of game and water. He returned to North Carolina to get his family. He had been given a land grant of 214 acres by old Fincastle Co., VA. He and his family moved to the Clinch in October, 1772.
He built his forthouse on Fall Creek (then called Falling Creek) near the present site of Dungannon. Just below the falls of the creek he built his grist mill in 1774. Permission to do so was granted by the court of old Fincastle County, bearing the date of March 2, 1774. The court order to build the mill is as follows: "On motion of Patrick Porter, leave is given him to build a mill on Falling Creek, the waters of the Clinch."
The mill house was a two-story log building with a chimney. Many stories have come down to us concerning this mill.
The story is told that the first Masonic Lodge held west of the Blue Ridge Mountains was held in the loft of Porter's Mill, and that they got the charter from Ireland. The Grand Lodge of Ireland tells us that no charter was ever granted for a Masonic Lodge to Patrick Porter, or any other person on the Clinch. Porter and his three brothers-in- law may have been Master Masons and formed a lodge without a charter, wishing to enjoy the rights and benefits of Masonry on the frontier.
Why was a grist mill so important on the Virginia frontier to the pioneers? It was because corn was the main food of the pioneers. Cornmeal in some form was used at every meal as mush, hoecake, Johnnycake, or cornbread. All these were made with cornmeal, salt (if salt was available) and water. It was the way they were cooked that made them different. The only dish that may have contained anything, besides these basic ingredients, was compone, which had small pieces of sliced bacon or rinds of meat in it, and was baked in the hot ashes of the fireplace. Hoecake was cooked on a hot griddle, and was sometimes made from a flat stone. The pioneers probably learned this method from the Indians. When the dough was baked on a smooth board before the fire it was called Johnnycake.
At the time that Patrick Porter came to the Clinch, there was neither law nor gospel on the frontier. He and a few other settlers were alone in the wilderness, over a hundred miles from the court at the lead mines, in the county seat of old Fincastle County. It was only natural that they take the law into their own hands now and then, when they had to deal with horse thieves, Indians and renegade whites. Unfortunately, punishments were not always mild.
Most of the pioneers were reverent. They believed as Daniel Boone did. He said, "All the religion I have is to love and fear God, do all the good to my neighbors and myself that I can, and do as little harm as I can, help and trust God's mercy for the rest."
While living on the Clinch, Patrick Porter lived in the counties of Fincastle, Washington and Russell, without ever moving from his original home. According to court records he was very active in the affairs of all three counties. He is liste don the roster of troops at Moore's Fort as a sergeant in 1777, when all the frontier of Southwest Virginia was under attack by the Cherokee and Shawnee Indians.
When Patrick and Susanna Walker Porter came from North Carolina and settled on Fall Creek, the waters of the Clinch, they brought with them eight children, namely:
Samuel, who was born in Guilford Co., NC, in 1757. He died in what is now Scott County around 1800. His wife's name was Mary. Some think her maiden name was Alley and that she was a sister to John Alley, who married Patrick's daughter, Mary. If the wife of Samuel Porter was Mary Alley, then she was the Polly Alley who was captured by the Indians in 1777. The Indians, on their way northward, also captured Jane Whittaker near Moore's Fort, and took them as prisoners to their town at the present site of Sandusky, Ohio. Their escape and arduous journey back home has become on of the classic stories of Virginia's last frontier.
A court order in Russell County dated February, 1803, reads:
"Ordered that the overseer of the poor bind Elizabeth, Jane, Samuel, Jr., Joseph and Alexander Porter, infant orphans of Samuel Porter, Sr., deceased." There were two other children who were not minors, James and Susanna.
John Walker Porter was born in Guilford Co., NC, April 19, 1759. He married Martha (Patsy) Hutchenson. They moved to Floyd Co., KY, where they lived and died. He served on the Virginia frontier as an Indian fighter and scout.
Jane Porter was born in Guilford Co., NC, September 7, 1761. She first married James Green in 1781. James was killed by the Indians while on a hunting trip near the mouth of Indian Creek, in what is now Wise Co., December 31, 1782. Jane married again in 1785 to Robert Kilgore, who in 1786 build the Kilgore Fort House.
Patrick Porter, Jr., was born in Guilford Co., NC, February 1766. He married Elizabeth Pendleton on April 3, 1814. He moved to Floyd Co., KY.
Katherine Porter was born in Guilford Co., NC, June 9, 1768. She married Dale Carter, the son of Norris Carter, who with his two brothers. Thomas and Joseph, built the Rye Cove Fort. Dale and Katherine lived and died in the Rye Cove section of Scott County. Both are buried in the Carter cemetery.
Mary Porter was born in Guilford Co., NC, February 25, 1771. She married John Alley. They were married by Bishop Whatcoat, a traveling companion of Bishop Asbury, the noted circuit riding Methodist, on their first visit to Southwest Virginia.
Ann Porter's birth date was not listed in Patrick Porter's prayer book as the other children are, and her date of death is not know. She married Samuel Ritchie. Ritchie was a very prominent man in his day. He was one of the commissioners selected to determine a site for the courthouse, when the act to form Scott County was passed November 14, 1814. He was also the first presiding justice of the Scott County court.
Ann and Samuel separated and he asked the Russell County Court to annul the marriage. The annulment was not granted, so he took a common law wife, Frances Kendrick.
Ann and Samuel had no children. Samuel died sometime in 1818. No one knows what became of Ann. Patrick Porter and his wife, Susanna, are known to have more than sixty grandchildren.

1 male 10-15 years of age
1 male 20-30 years of age
2 females 15-20 years of age
1 female 60-70 (Hannah)
1 female 70-80 years of age. (birth year if she is 80 of 1760)

We suspect that the oldest female could be the mother of Temperance Hardin (Sanders) Bolin as well as the the spouse of John Hardin Sr.

Speculation:

Now the pension file I have attached  for Joseph Harden/Hardin of Rutherford Co. NC and he states he was born 3 July 1760 in Chatham County, NC and at some point moved to Rutherford County and enlisted in the Rev. War there (1776) at some point he was in an Indian War but in 1817 he removed to Anderson County, TN and stayed 1 year. Then moved to Franklin County, TN for 4 years (1818-1822) then moved to Tuscaloosa County, Alabama in 1822 and applied there in 1833 for his penison.
Another interesting thing about the Joseph Harden was that he had a brother named Elijah Hardin testifing that he was in the war. There is an Elijah Bolin that does a land survey now he could be the son of Temperance Bolin.

When Pete was about 4 years old, he asked his mother to help him write a letter to Santa Claus. She told me that she was careful to transcribe his every word just as he spoke it.
On July 17th 2003, Anita & I spent the day together reminicing on days gone by. While sifting through old photographs and such, she happened upon that letter.
Anita's little boy is now a man, my husband, my soul mate, my protecter, truly the love of my life. The years may have stolen his innonence, but his spirit remains as pure and precious as it was that day.
It brought me so much joy that I felt compelled to share it here.

Dear Santa Claus,

My name is Peter John Harings and I am four years old.

"I want a jet and the boats- and a helicopter with a big wing in front and back.
And I want a bow and arrow and just a bowling set too and a cannon and a tool kit (-that's what I mostly want) and a gun that shoots things like that. A doctor kit and I just want about three more things--a cement truck and a dump truck and one of those car haulers and one of those searchlight trucks---now that one (guided missle launcher). Just one more... a road grader and a dump truck."

Love, Peter
Dohm/Lammersdorf is located in the Fifel region of Germany. At one time, Dohm and Lammersdorf were two separate villages. Since the distance between the two was only a couple of blocks, the two were combined.

My husband Peter J Harings III is the ggg grandson of Jacob Harings of Dohm Lammersdorf Germany. In 1786, Jacob was born in Lammerdorf, the son of Petrus Harings and Susanna Krump. In 1818, he married Maria Catharina Blonigen and they settled in Dohm. The village presently has a population of about 200. It is beautifully quaint with no businesses, only private homes and the church.

The Chapel was built in the 1500's and sits atop a hill overlooking the town. This is the same chapel where my husband's ancestors were married and their children's children were baptised. There is a cemetery in front of the Chapel but his ancestors were not found there. In Germany, Grave plots are leased for a term of 60 years at which time the remains are removed and the plot leased again.

The Harings home is located in the heart of Dohm on the main street of the town. One half of the house is the original. The other half was added sometime later. It is quite possible Petrus built the home as its present owner, Mrs. Giles who is 88 at the time of this writing, said her great great grandfather built it in 1726.

These stories as well as photos of the Harings home, family bible, the old Chapel and surrounding area were given to us by a fellow researcher Dara Harings of Wisconsin during her trip to Germany in 2004. We will be forever grateful for her thoughtfulness.

<font color=blue size=+4 face="carlisle">William and Charlie Kilgore as well as Will's sons, Bill, Gord and Willie. </font>

Perhaps having learned the mining trade in Grundy County, as did Grandpa William T. Dickson Grandma Canzada's brothers also were miners. They worked mines operated by the Estelle Mining Company at Shaw, Georgia in Walker County. At the height of its operation this company employed 235 men. This mining community provided over 175 homes for the miners and their families. A commissary provided for all the needs of the employees and their families from furniture to clothing, groceries and household goods. There were two schools with an enrollment of 190 children. The County maintained both of the schools and the men at Estelle subscribed to over 70% of the cost and retained a doctor for medical attention. The Estelle property consisted of 1600 acres and had a blacksmith shop, machine shop, and carpenter shop, steam plant, sawmill and a supply house. There was a 6-mile narrow gauge railroad called the "Dinky" which began at the crusher and ran through 7 tunnels to the mines. Ore was hauled from the mines to the crusher on this railroad. As the demand for ore started to wane, operations at the mines began to slacken and finally ceased in 1924. At the height of its operation and due to a shortage of qualified miners, boys as young as seven would help load ore. Ten-year-old boys worked at the crusher and at the age of 12, the boys could go underground as "mule" boys. The mule boys would leave home by 6:00 a.m. to get the mules ready to enter the mines at 6:30 a.m. The mule boys worked 10 hours a day for 20 cents per hour. Push boys, crushers, firemen, engineers and breakies were some of the other jobs available to the men and boys who lived in the area. Sunday was the day off and was the day for recreation. If the miners weren't fishing or hunting or playing horseshoes, they could be found at the baseball field. The Estelle crew played teams from Durham, LaFayette and Chickamauga.
Among the hundreds of men and boys who worked in the Estelle iron ore mines were Canzada's brothers, William and Charlie Kilgore and will's sons, Bill, Gord and Willie.

Mother: Rebecca Salyer
Father: Stephen Clayton Kilgore
Sex: male

<font color=blue size=+1>About Steven Kilgore and Rebecca Salyer Kilgore</font> <br>

Steven Kilgore was born in Orange County, North Carolina between 1766-68 to Robert Kilgore and Winnie Clayton Kilgore of western North Carolina. Steven Kilgore's name appears on the Russell County, Virginia tax roll in 1788 indicating that he probably had accompanied the Salyer brothers to the Copper Creek area in Russell County. Steven Kilgore married Rebecca salyer around 1788, probably in Russell County. Steven Kilgore appears to have resettled in Marion County, Tennessee in 1808. He came down through Bledsoe County where he stopped for awhile with a Joe Kilgore. (Joe Kilgore has not been identified as to his relationship to Steven Kilgore.) He then continued down Sequatchie Valley to what is now Victoria in Marion county. (Not a county until 1817.) At that time the territory was Cherokee Indian land and the white people who came in were considered intruders. <br>
Steven and Rebecca Kilgore had three sons when they came to Tennessee. Charles born in 1790, William and Joseph born between 1800 and 1810. When Steven came to Victoria he settled on the Cowan farm and adjacent property. Besides being a farmer he also practiced his profession as a preacher. Steven and Rebecca had eight children of which many descendants still live throughout Sequatchie Valley and surrounding counties. Steven died between 1844-45 in Marion County and was buried in the family plot in Kilgore Cemetery on the foothills of
( page 81 ) Walden's Ridge in the Valley. <br>
Rebecca was still living at the age of ninety according to the 1860 census. She was living with her daughter, Rebecca Layne. The exact time of her death is not known, but she was buried beside her husband. <br>

The Fort House of Robert Kilgore
& his wife Jane


Robert Kilgore built his fort house on Copper Creek in Scott County, Virginia, soon after he married Jane Porter Green in 1785. Jane Porter was the daughter of Patrick Porter who built the first grist mill on Fall Creek about a mile southwest of the present Dunganon.

Jane Porter first married James Green of Fall Creek area. Green and Charles Kilgore of King's Mountain fame were slain on December 31, 1782 by Indians on Indian Creek near the present borders of Wise County, Virginia according to legend. However, a check of Revolutionary War Pension records disputes this, as Charles was still alive in Green County, Virginia in 1787, where he died in 1823.

Robert Kilgore married Jane Porter Green in 1785. She had been born in her father's fort on Fall Creek about two miles west of the present town of Dunganon, Virginia. Having felt the security of Patrick Porter's fort and knowing that Indians had killed her first husband, she must have prevailed upon. Her new husband, Robert Kilgore, to build a strong house for their use. By this time there was her son, James Green, 2 years old who, she must have felt needed protection against Indian raids also. So near the waters of Copper Creek, Robert Kilgore built a strong log house, chinked it with limestone rocks and cut portholes. In case of an attack, those within the fort house could go up to the second floor, drop a trap door and be ready to shoot out the portholes.

In 1785 the Indian raids in this area were few. Only once, so history has it, did Indians approach the house. A band of them camped one night on the cliff top south of the house, but when dawn came, they moved on. Only one raid was made in Southwest Virginia after that. That one was made by Chief Benge in 1794 when he spirited away some Livingston women from the Holston River. He led them across what is now Scott County into the present Wise County when he was killed by Vincent Hobbs.

Robert Kilgore was examined for the ministry at the Primitive Baptist Church, two miles east of Nichelsville in 1808 and licensed to preach. But, because of poor housing, the Fort House was used considerably as a church. Records show that during his ministry, "Rev. Robin" as he was known, married 285 couples in the Fort House. The Rev. Robert Kilgore died in the Fort House March 29, 1854 and was buried near it. Later his body was moved to Nichelsville where it is entombed. The Fort House is maintained by the Scott County Board of Supervisors as a historical site in the county.

<center><font color=blue size=+2>Comments from Catherine Kilgore Flury Of Tracy City </font></center>

This attached grant is for 160 acres to Steven Kilgore. (He is the father of Canzada Kilgore and my grandfather George Kilgore. You will note that Andrew Johnson then Secretary of State of Tennessee signed it.) It was granted in 1835.
In 1897, there was a court case where Tennessee Coal and Iron, Co. claimed the land that had been given to Steven Kilgore. When the trial was over it was left pending and no decision was made but T.C.I. took over the land and when Steven was on his deathbed, his lawyer came to see him and told him that he did not want him to die without knowing that he had sold him out. My grandfather lived just down the hill from the Steven Kilgore home place. Through the years he and my Dad bought a lot of land back that was taken from Steven. When Grandpa (George) died his part was sold and divided among his heirs. Before Dad died, he sold his land as he was not able of it and people were cutting timber, etc. on it. None of my brothers were around to help him take care of it so they sold it.
It is where I spent a lot of my childhood. I loved going to Grandpa's. Some of my happiest times were spent there. My grandmother died when Dad was 7 and at the time of her death, she had a sister living with her so she just stayed on and helped the older girls with the family. She was like a grandmother to us. Taught us to milk the cow, churn milk; she would let us help her gather eggs, take us walking in the woods, pick berries and told us stories about the family. I wish I could remember all of them. It was so much fun as they had no electricity and I loved the oil lamps and feather beds. I suppose all of Steven's family was raised there in Lankford Town, as I have not found out anything different. He was there in 1835 and also in 1897.
<center><font color=blue size=+2>Some Kilgore Family History...Beginning with Our Grandma Canzada </font></center>

There are a lot of stories in our family about Grandma Dickson. She was alleged to be an Indian squaw that William picked up on a trip down to northwest Georgia. others said she was a tough taskmaster who knew to do nothing but work. other stories I have heard make her the epitome of the frontier woman --- big" strong, could pull the plow when the mule got tired, washed, cleaned, spun thread and made clothes for the kids. Take your pick --- no one in today's generation remembers her as she passed away shortly after 1900 in northwest Georgia. After very extensive study of records to find Canzada in Grundy and surrounding counties, I was referred to a very wonderful lady, Mrs. Catherine Flury in Tracy City, Tennessee, whom I was told was doing a genealogy study on Kilgore family. This turned into the kind of experience all of us who do this kind of work love. Come to find out, her grandfather and Canzada were brothers and sisters. She provided me the following information.

Five brothers who were great, great grandsons of Lord Douglas Kilqore came to America in 1763 from Scotland. Charles Kilgore, a gallant and brave soldier in the American Revolution was wounded at the Battle of Kings Mountain, North Carolina, where the Americans defeated the British General Ferguson. His brother, Hiram Kilgore, was killed in this fierce battle. The other three brothers were Robert, william and James.

Our Grandma's line is via Robert. Robert was born in Scotland in the 1740's and died in 1783. He married Winnie Clayton. Robert obtained land on Falling Creek, in Scott county, Virginia in 1772, returning from Orange County, North Carolina. The children of Robert and Winnie were:

as told by Catherine Kilgore Flury Of Tracy City Tennessee</font>
<br>
~Note by Alma: Catherine Flury's grandfather and My Grandmother Canzada Kilgore were brother and sister.<br>
<br>

On June 26, 1896, I was born way out in the Victoria Ridges in a two-room log house. They named me Callie Ethel Ki1gore. My oldest sister Laura had the whooping cough at that time. So my mother decided to send her to grandma's to stay at least nine days. When Laura got the news that the new baby was a girl instead of a red headed boy, Laura was so angry across the woods and fields, with her split bonnet on, she hurried home. She came in the house and went to the bed, turned back the cover and blew her breath in my face and said;" I will kill this one". Well, she almost did. She and our mother, with other help, had to stay up night and day. Mother said that one night nurse was a young man named Bob Hampton. He would stay up all night holding me with a saucer of sweet oil and a feather. When I would cough so hard my breath cut off and I turned blue, Bob would dip the feather in the oil, run it down my throat and bring out the phlegm. My brother Leonard was sick then too. Not only whooping cough but some kind of fever and a carbuckel on his neck. Mother would cook up some kind of herbs: thicken with brains and put warm bags of this mixture on his neck. Leonard could only drink mare's milk, so at break of day Laura had to start over the woods and fields. She would walk for miles to Grandma's house to milk the mare. One day as she was going down a hill after staying up so much with me, she claimed she went to sleep and ran into a tree: she got a large bump on her forehead to show for that.

Mother told me why our Dad never whipped us. The hickory stick was left for her to correct us children. Once a little boy named Darris Derald was crying for some sweet wax the older children had picked from a sweet gum tree. The wax had to be boiled down so it would not stick to our teeth; anyway, this little boy did not want to wait and was crying for the gum. Dad whipped him so hard he left the prints of his hand on the child. That same night the boy took the croup and died before morning: went to his grave with Dad's handprint still on him. Our Dad would walk the yard field trying to find the little boys bare footprint.
We only got one pair of shoes a year. I remember this for it would be when the first frost came in the fall. Our Dad would get a piece of stick, have us stand on the floor and he would mark how long our foot was. By that length he would bring us a pair of brass toed shoes. My, how proud we were. We always expected something for Christmas but never wrote to Santa what to bring. I remember one Christmas my sister, Nancy, and a neighbour girl took two quilt tops and went out. Way after dark we heard a bugle. Half scared to death, we got a chair and sat real quiet in front of the open fireplace. I mean we were good. In came Mr. and Mrs. Santa. They had those quilts around them and over their heads. They asked my brother Leonard, (he was two years older than I) had he been good. Leonard stuttered real bad when he was afraid so he began who-who-yes-yes- -I-be-be-been good. He got the bugle. I would guess that bugle cost ten cents. One sister got a small china undressed doll. We all got a few sticks of candy and I think maybe an apple. We had a blind sister name Sarah. She died and mother gave me her dress. It was too long but that didn't matter to me. It had a ruffle on the bottom, which Sarah had loved very much, and so did I. I would only wear it on Sunday or when I went some place, as our clothes were few. Mother knitted our stockings. She would spin the wool and cotton on her old spinning wheel for the knitting. She would get walnut hulls and boil in water until she got a pretty brown color. She would dye part of the course thread brown. From elder berries we would pick, she would make red dye. So part of the thread was red. We had the prettiest stripped stockings. Warm too. And one more thing, they hardly ever wore out. Well do I remember Mother making her own soap? It was an all purpose soap. We used it for everything. Washing clothes, faces, heads, floors. Old fashioned lye soap. She would fix her ash hopper in the fall; it was made from long boards put close together at the bottom and it would widen out at the top. We would pour all our wood ashes in the hopper all winter. Then in the spring she would take the cover off and pour water in on these ashes. The water would soak through the ashes and lye would drip out in a kettle. Then with meat rinds and cracklins (they got these when they butchered hogs), this lye and meat skins would be cooked in the old wash kettle and there's the soap. Our Mother would give us a bath in the old washtub and wash our hair. Talk about pretty reddish brown hair, I had it; the best shampoo for shiny hair. None like it for shine.
When I started to school the schoolhouse had two rooms. Not one mind you but two; one large and one small. I guess I did as well as could be for a country girl with what schooling we did get. We would have to stop in the cornfield after school and pull fodder until the sun went down. Many a time a worm would sting me and I'd run to Dad. He would take out a wad of tobacco and put some tobacco spit on the sting and right then the pain would stop. I would work on; wishing the sun would go down. I was tired and hungry since there was not much to eat in the little lard bucket at lunchtime. I'd hope that Mother would have enough stove wood to bake corn pone; it sure was good even if it was made with only salt and water. After we got home, I would go after the cow and another youngun would go after stove wood. We would hunt the hills over for sticks and pull bark off logs and stumps; we would carry water from the spring too; enough to last all the next day.
One time in school, I remember, the class was choosing sides. The two best ones in the class doing the choosing (of course we had a few well to do girls and boys in the class). They would always choose me last because my arithmetic lesson was my hardest, I just couldn't do long division. Once the teacher made me stand and had all the class laugh and make fun of me. That hurt more than a whipping. I went to my seat and put my other three books in the desk. I cried and figured all day and by the time school was out, I had it down pat even with the speed and I do mean speed. The next morning I went to school (I didn't even tell Leonard) so as usual, I was the last one chosen. I walked up to the black board, big brown eyes, shining brown hair (thanks to the lye soap) braided and tied with rag string, bare feet, and I began to use them figures. I sat everyone down. All the big shots and even my brother, Leonard. When I sat their side down the teacher was so proud of me, he put a gift on the Christmas tree for me. My brother threw rocks at me all the way home, he was so mad. I could run as fast as Leonard in my bare feet though. Leonard was working for a man named Thompson. He paid him fifty cents a day to hoe corn from sun up to sun down. Leonard got me my first paying job, forty cents a day because I was two years younger. After a while I refused forty cents because my brother always helped me out when I fell behind. One day Leonard went to get a drink of water from the jug under the only tree in the field. Mr. Thompson had two colored boys working in the upper part of the corn field (not much integration in corn fields), and one of those colored boys came after a drink from this jug water. Somehow Leonard and the colored boy got into a fuss about a prizefight. My brother hit the Negro boy on the head with his hoe and knocked him out. We thought the boy was dead, so we started running home as fast as we could tearing down corn as we went. The boss came and poured water on the Negro boy, brought him back to breathing, then started out after us. The louder that man yelled at us to stop, the faster we ran. We were afraid he wanted to tell us the boy was dead. I remember that Halls Creek was pretty deep but not very wide and there was a bridge a little ways up the stream but a big tree had blown across that creek so Leonard took the short cut across the tree. To this day I don't know how I ever made it across but somehow I did. About then the boss had caught up enough to yell, "Come back Leonard, that boy is alright". So Leonard stopped and started to yell, "Who-who-u-u-se-se-send that ni-nigger home or I-I quit". Mr. Thompson sent the colored boy home and we went back to work.
Our Mother would go to Laura's or any of the boys house to stay when a baby was due and many mornings my sister Virgie and I would get up take our tin cup and go to a blackberry patch, pick berries that had ripened over night to have something for breakfast. Some mornings we would wait for anybodies cow to by. We'd put a hand full of salt down, take our tin cup and re-milk that cow to get enough milk for gravy. My brother and I would take a crosscut saw and go up on the hill and saw a big black log for the open fireplace. We would, both push that log to get it started down hill and then we'd yell at the top of our voices so that log would change ends going down that hill. That was exciting. Sometimes when the winter was real cold, we'd build such a big fire the old stick and clay chimney got on fire, and our Dad would have to put it out.
On washday, we would talk it over which one would be the easiest to carry, the wash pot, tubs, wash board and clothes to the spring or carry the spring to the house. We'd decide to carry the water to the house and away we'd go. One tub, two buckets and with an old fashioned gourd, we'd dip the tub full to the ring and then the two buckets. My sister would take one handle of the tub and a bucket in her other hand and I'd do the same. We would get a good start, and then I would put down the tub and bucket and go back to the spring to see if I could miss the water that I had dipped out. Not even one gourd full could I miss. Now I realize that was simple for the water was running in as fast as I was dipping it out. We would scrub the house with a sage grass broom, all we had. Soon as our broom wore out, we'd go to the grass field and cut down more sage grass and our mother would make us another broom.
We all loved babies. Every time we heard of a new baby in our neighborhood, we'd spend hours in the woods looking in every old log and hollow tree and stumps for a baby. We never found a baby, but we did find a young bird once so we put it into a box and got our hoe and went to the woods to dig worms to feed it. Virgie swung down with the hoe at the same time I reached for a worm. She cut my head and home we ran, blood pouring down my face. Mom fixed that with turpentine. Virgie, being the youngest, could get away with lots of things. After dinner I would go look for Virgie and she'd be out on the porch reading the Bible. So my sister Pearl and I would go on and do the dishes. We thought Virgie wasn't to be disturbed since she was reading the Bible. We didn't realize she knew how to work us to get out of dishes.
The only time I can remember our Dad whipping Leonard, and me we were about 6 or 7. Leonard and I put some fence rails in the cow stall and when the cow tried to get in the stall we had her fenced out. So she was in the corncrib when our Dad went out to the barn the next morning. Dad had to almost tear the barn down to get the cow out of the corncrib. Dad whipped Leonard first and Leonard screamed so loud I got scared and ran around the house. I got in the hens nest in the chimney corner with a board to hide me. But Dad found me and when he called I came out. He whipped me a little (not much) and I found out that Leonard had mostly been screaming to get him to stop. The first gift I can remember from Dad was a calf. This calf was out in the rain. The rain turned to ice and that poor calf had ice on his back. I was home alone at that time and somehow I got that calf in the house and had it stand by the open fire until the ice melted. Dad came in but wasn't a bit angry so he said that calf was mine and I sure did claim him from then on.
Do you want to know how we spent our evenings? We spent them at home. We would shell corn at night and next morning Leonard and I would divide it and carry it on our heads to the mill to be ground into meal. Maybe the next night we would pick the seeds out of cotton so our Mother could spin it on the old spinning wheel. In the fall, we would pick peas and when they got dry enough we would spread them out on a sheet and beat them out with sticks and hull the rest by hand. Sometimes in the summer, we would play marbles or horseshoes but most of the time we had work to do.
I can remember the first car Leonard and I ever rode in. The man had a flat tire. We got out and Leonard got a long breath and said, "Well this is going to be a heck of a lift". He thought we had to hold the car up while the man changed the tire. Leonard grew up to be a proud fellow. He would wear an old stocking top over his head at night trying to get every red hair to stay in place. Even after he had grown to be a man, he would still stutter when he got excited. Mother did her own doctoring. There was a short man that would go out in the mountains and dig roots of all kinds. Some was called rat vain and snakeroot. Just all kinds of root. He would put all these roots and barks in a large kettle of water. He would boil it down until it was thick enough to pour into molds and dry. His name was Carlock. So when we saw him coming up the road, we would yell Mother here comes old man Carlock. Mother would start looking for pennies and nickels. I think he would charge about twenty-five cents. Mother was ready if one of us got a headache. Here she would come with a big tablespoon that little brown pill well covered, heaped over with anything she had in the kitchen to hide the pill. It would take so long for her to get my mouth opened, the pill would be dissolved and all the goodies she used to cover the taste, tasted like pills. It sure did the work though.
My Mother would visit an elderly woman that lived up a hill. There was a large space of woods we had to go through and Mother would ask me if I wanted to walk along her. Of course, I wanted to go but the path so narrow I couldn't walk beside Mother and I'd follow behind. I was so scared sometimes I'd slip by her and walk in front. Then it seemed as if I could see something behind each bush when it was so dark I could hardly see the bush. But when we'd get to the top of the hill and I had a wider path, I'd stop by my Mother and put my hand in hers. I felt so safe then. Felt like nothing could harm me. We'd spend the rest of the evening with Mrs. Parks and she'd put potatoes on the open fire, and cover them with hot coals and ashes. Talk about good potatoes, none could taste better.

My older brothers could playa banjo: my Dad a fiddle. We had our own country music. Not bad if you like that kind. We did not do the latest dance steps or the newest song hits. Everything in those days was an old-fashioned tune. Though I imagine some are still popular today. .
<center><font color=blue size=+2 face="courier">Canzada's Brothers were Ore Miners at Shaw, Georgia</font></center>

<font color=blue size=+4 face="carlisle">William and Charlie Kilgore as well as Will's sons, Bill, Gord and Willie. </font>

Perhaps having learned the mining trade in Grundy County, as did Grandpa William T. Dickson Grandma Canzada's brothers also were miners. They worked mines operated by the Estelle Mining Company at Shaw, Georgia in Walker County. At the height of its operation this company employed 235 men. This mining community provided over 175 homes for the miners and their families. A commissary provided for all the needs of the employees and their families from furniture to clothing, groceries and household goods. There were two schools with an enrollment of 190 children. The County maintained both of the schools and the men at Estelle subscribed to over 70% of the cost and retained a doctor for medical attention. The Estelle property consisted of 1600 acres and had a blacksmith shop, machine shop, and carpenter shop, steam plant, sawmill and a supply house. There was a 6-mile narrow gauge railroad called the "Dinky" which began at the crusher and ran through 7 tunnels to the mines. Ore was hauled from the mines to the crusher on this railroad. As the demand for ore started to wane, operations at the mines began to slacken and finally ceased in 1924. At the height of its operation and due to a shortage of qualified miners, boys as young as seven would help load ore. Ten-year-old boys worked at the crusher and at the age of 12, the boys could go underground as "mule" boys. The mule boys would leave home by 6:00 a.m. to get the mules ready to enter the mines at 6:30 a.m. The mule boys worked 10 hours a day for 20 cents per hour. Push boys, crushers, firemen, engineers and breakies were some of the other jobs available to the men and boys who lived in the area. Sunday was the day off and was the day for recreation. If the miners weren't fishing or hunting or playing horseshoes, they could be found at the baseball field. The Estelle crew played teams from Durham, LaFayette and Chickamauga.
Among the hundreds of men and boys who worked in the Estelle iron ore mines were Canzada's brothers, William and Charlie Kilgore and will's sons, Bill, Gord and Willie.

The Fort House of Robert Kilgore
& his wife Jane


Robert Kilgore built his fort house on Copper Creek in Scott County, Virginia, soon after he married Jane Porter Green in 1785. Jane Porter was the daughter of Patrick Porter who built the first grist mill on Fall Creek about a mile southwest of the present Dunganon.

Jane Porter first married James Green of Fall Creek area. Green and Charles Kilgore of King's Mountain fame were slain on December 31, 1782 by Indians on Indian Creek near the present borders of Wise County, Virginia according to legend. However, a check of Revolutionary War Pension records disputes this, as Charles was still alive in Green County, Virginia in 1787, where he died in 1823.

Robert Kilgore married Jane Porter Green in 1785. She had been born in her father's fort on Fall Creek about two miles west of the present town of Dunganon, Virginia. Having felt the security of Patrick Porter's fort and knowing that Indians had killed her first husband, she must have prevailed upon. Her new husband, Robert Kilgore, to build a strong house for their use. By this time there was her son, James Green, 2 years old who, she must have felt needed protection against Indian raids also. So near the waters of Copper Creek, Robert Kilgore built a strong log house, chinked it with limestone rocks and cut portholes. In case of an attack, those within the fort house could go up to the second floor, drop a trap door and be ready to shoot out the portholes.

In 1785 the Indian raids in this area were few. Only once, so history has it, did Indians approach the house. A band of them camped one night on the cliff top south of the house, but when dawn came, they moved on. Only one raid was made in Southwest Virginia after that. That one was made by Chief Benge in 1794 when he spirited away some Livingston women from the Holston River. He led them across what is now Scott County into the present Wise County when he was killed by Vincent Hobbs.

Robert Kilgore was examined for the ministry at the Primitive Baptist Church, two miles east of Nichelsville in 1808 and licensed to preach. But, because of poor housing, the Fort House was used considerably as a church. Records show that during his ministry, "Rev. Robin" as he was known, married 285 couples in the Fort House. The Rev. Robert Kilgore died in the Fort House March 29, 1854 and was buried near it. Later his body was moved to Nichelsville where it is entombed. The Fort House is maintained by the Scott County Board of Supervisors as a historical site in the county.

<font color=blue size=+1>About Steven Kilgore and Rebecca Salyer Kilgore</font> <br>

Steven Kilgore was born in Orange County, North Carolina between 1766-68 to Robert Kilgore and Winnie Clayton Kilgore of western North Carolina. Steven Kilgore's name appears on the Russell County, Virginia tax roll in 1788 indicating that he probably had accompanied the Salyer brothers to the Copper Creek area in Russell County. Steven Kilgore married Rebecca salyer around 1788, probably in Russell County. Steven Kilgore appears to have resettled in Marion County, Tennessee in 1808. He came down through Bledsoe County where he stopped for awhile with a Joe Kilgore. (Joe Kilgore has not been identified as to his relationship to Steven Kilgore.) He then continued down Sequatchie Valley to what is now Victoria in Marion county. (Not a county until 1817.) At that time the territory was Cherokee Indian land and the white people who came in were considered intruders. <br>
Steven and Rebecca Kilgore had three sons when they came to Tennessee. Charles born in 1790, William and Joseph born between 1800 and 1810. When Steven came to Victoria he settled on the Cowan farm and adjacent property. Besides being a farmer he also practiced his profession as a preacher. Steven and Rebecca had eight children of which many descendants still live throughout Sequatchie Valley and surrounding counties. Steven died between 1844-45 in Marion County and was buried in the family plot in Kilgore Cemetery on the foothills of
( page 81 ) Walden's Ridge in the Valley. <br>
Rebecca was still living at the age of ninety according to the 1860 census. She was living with her daughter, Rebecca Layne. The exact time of her death is not known, but she was buried beside her husband. <br>

Virginia and William Kilgore had a son named Clayton.
CANZADA KILGORE DICKSON --our wonderful Grandma

There are a lot of stories in our family about Grandma Dickson. She was alleged to be an Indian squaw that William picked up on a trip down to northwest Georgia. others said she was a tough taskmaster who knew to do nothing but work. other stories I have heard make her the epitome of the frontier woman --- big" strong, could pull the plow when the mule got tired, washed, cleaned, spun thread and made clothes for the kids. Take your pick --- no one in today's generation remembers her as she passed away shortly after 1900 in northwest Georgia. After very extensive study of records to find Canzada in Grundy and surrounding counties, I was referred to a very wonderful lady, Mrs. Catherine Flury in Tracy City, Tennessee, whom I was told was doing a genealogy study on Kilgore family. This turned into the kind of experience all of us who do this kind of work love. Come to find out, her grandfather and Canzada were brothers and sisters. She provided me the following information.

Five brothers who were great, great grandsons of Lord Douglas Kilqore came to America in 1763 from Scotland. Charles Kilgore, a gallant and brave soldier in the American Revolution was wounded at the Battle of Kings Mountain, North Carolina, where the Americans defeated the British General Ferguson. His brother, Hiram Kilgore, was killed in this fierce battle. The other three brothers were Robert, william and James.

Our Grandma's line is via Robert. Robert was born in Scotland in the 1740's and died in 1783. He married Winnie Clayton. Robert obtained land on Falling Creek, in Scott county, Virginia in 1772, returning from Orange County, North Carolina. The children of Robert and Winnie were:


1. Charles, Jr. b. 1-4-1764
d.
m. Avarilla Simpson They had a daughter, Winnie


2. Reverend Robert (Robin) (Story later in this section) b. 1765 Orange cty., N;C.
d. 29 May 1854
m. Jane Porter Green (widow of James Green)

3. Steven b. 1766-1768 Orange cty., N.C.
d. 1840-1845 Marion cty., TN.
m. Rebecca Sayler before 1807
b. 1770-1780 Western, N.C.

They came to Tennessee in 1805

About Steven Kilgore and Rebecca Salyer Kilgore

Steven Kilgore was born in Orange County, North Carolina between 1766-68 to Robert Kilgore and Winnie Clayton Kilgore of western North Carolina.
Steven Kilgore's name appears on the Russell County, Virginia tax roll in 1788 indicating that he probably had accompanied the Salyer brothers to the Copper Creek area in Russell County. Steven Kilgore married Rebecca salyer around 1788, probably in Russell County. Steven Kilgore appears to have resettled in Marion County, Tennessee in 1808. He came down through Bledsoe County where he stopped for awhile with a Joe Kilgore. (Joe Kilgore has not been identified as to his relationship to Steven Kilgore.) He then continued down Sequatchie Valley to what is now Victoria in Marion county. (Not a county until 1817.) At that time the territory was Cherokee Indian land and the white people who came in were considered intruders.
Steven and Rebecca Kilgore had three sons when they came to Tennessee. Charles born in 1790, William and Joseph born between 1800 and 1810. When Steven came to Victoria he settled on the Cowan farm and adjacent property. Besides being a farmer he also practiced his profession as a preacher. Steven and Rebecca had eight children of which many descendants still live throughout Sequatchie Valley and surrounding counties. Steven died between 1844-45 in Marion County and was buried in the family plot in Kilgore Cemetery on the foothills of ( page 81 )
Walden's Ridge in the Valley.
Rebecca was still living at the age of ninety according to the 1860 census. She was living with her daughter, Rebecca Layne. The exact time of her death is not known, but she was buried beside her husband.

Prior to 1850, several spelling variations for this famlies name were used; Lane, Lain or Layne) It appears that after 1850 the family used the spelling LAYNE
exclusively .

1. Gwinnett co. GA 1840 census there is a Bluford Osborn with a spouse both under 30 yrs. and a girl under 5 yrs. By 1850 census they are not in this county. This is county next to Atlanta, and at that time may have included Atlanta. Just a thought.

2. Sarah Nancy Osborn married Bluford Raper(Osborn?) , 1842, Atlanta, Georgia, moved to Missouri after Civil War.

<center>Submitted by Alma Harings June 1. 2005</center>
<center><a href="mailto:aharings@cox.net">E-MAIL ME</a></center>

<b>My great great grandfather Zachariah F Taylor</b> was born in Cobb County GA on Feb. 14, 1840. Zack was found listed within a previously published Taylor family history as the son of George Taylor (SC 1772-1848 TN) and Nancy Weaver of SC. Unfortunately, after months of searching, this writer has been unable to locate any evidence that would support this parentage for Zack. Therefore, I have concluded that the idenity of Zacks parents remain a mystery as of this writing and I welcome and encourage your suggestions at this point. <br>.
A search of the 1850 Cobb County Georgia census records did find 10 Yr old "Zachary Tailor" residing in the Marietta (GA) household of a William Jones and Nancy Jones of SC. Wm was listed as a 23 yr old white male and was probably the son of 65 yr old Nancy Jones. Though one could easily assume that she was the grandmother to Zachary, the true nature of their relationship is currently unknown. <br>
"Zack" Taylor was 22 years old when he enlisted in <b>Phillips Legion Infantry Battalion Company C </b> on 3/1/1862. The Legion formed in the spring of 1861 with men from Habersham County, Ga. Under the command of Colonel William Phillips, the Legion campaigned in the mountains of western Virginia into late 1861. The weather had been brutal and many men succumbed to measles and typhoid. They returned to South Carolina in January of 1862 to recover their strength, Colonel Phillips had returned to Marietta, GA to recruit additional soldiers, enrolling a number of men in Company C. While serving as one of the famed "Habersham Rifles" of Co C., Zack was hospitalised in Lynchburg on November 29 1862 suffering from debility. <br>
In 1863, Zack Taylor transferred over to Co F of the 3rd GA Sharpshooter Battalion formed in May of that year. The Battalion was formed by selecting the best soldiers from the five units that made up Gen Wm T Woffords GA Brigade (16th, 18th, 24th GA regiments and the Phillips and Cobb Legion Infantry Battalions). <b>The Sharpshooter Battalion</b> then served as part of Woffords Brigade for the rest of the war providing scouting and sniper support. <br>

<b>Taylor Family History Update: </b> <br>
Zachary F Taylor did not fight in the battle at Chickamauga as our family had previously thought, as Woffords Sharpshooters brigade did not arrive until the day after the battle. Since they were a "fresh" unit, they pursuit of the retreating Union army and ran into the Federals who were entrenching around Chattanooga on September 24th. (1863) They attacked but were driven back by massed artillery fire taking a number of casualties. Fortunately, Zack was not one of them. <br>
About a year later on August 16 1864, Zack was captured by the Federals at Front Royal VA and imprisoned at Elmira NY for eight months until his exchange on 3/14/1865. Renamed "Hellmira" by the Confederate Soldiers imprisoned there, it quickly became known as the worst prison camp in the North. <br>
After the war, Zack Taylor returned home to Georgia where he met and married another Georgia native_ Nancy E. Osborn in Hamilton County TN on Nov 20, 1865. Later in 1870, I found the newlyweds listed within the Georgia Census records as residents of the 974th Militia District of Dade County. (Post Office: Trenton) Zack was working as a farm hand and his wife Nannie worked at keeping their home. <br>
<br>
Unto this union were born six children: <br>
<br>
1. Alonzo F. TAYLOR b: MAY 1872 in Trenton, Dade, GA
2. Eugene "Pallie" TAYLOR b: ABT 1875 in Dade County GA
3. Anna B. TAYLOR b: AUG 1879 in Dade County GA
4. Fanny TAYLOR b: NOV 1880 in Dade County GA
5. Thomas TAYLOR b: MAR 1884 in Dade County GA
6. Sallie Mae TAYLOR b: 10 MAY 1890 in Trenton Dade GA<br>
<br>
I descend from their last-born, Sallie Mae Taylor who, as a child, was nicknamed Zachary. As an adult, Sallie Mae was lovingly referred to as Little Mommie by those closest to her. While visiting with her kinfolk on Christmas Day 1947_ Sallie Mae suddenly and unexpectedly collapsed and died after walking up the steep hill of Mud Town in Jenkins KY (Letcher County). She was only 57 years old. <br>
A reunion was held in Trenton, GA on August 19th 1893 for the areas Ex- Confederate Veterans who had fought in during the War for Southern Independence. My great great grandfather Zachariah F Taylor of Dade County GA was one of many found to attend on that day. (See link below) <br>

Zachariah F Taylor died at 71 years of age at his home in Dade County GA on Sept 7, 1911. Nannie survived her husband nearly 16 years, but after a two-year battle with cancer, she finally died on July 6, 1927. Even though the widow Taylor may have remarried, Nannie chose to be beside her first husband Zack at the Whitt Cemetery not far from their home in Dade County GA. <br>

His father Thomas Sanders, Sr. was listed as fourty to forty-five years of age and was the head of household. Living with Thomas Sanders Sr were a total of 13 children, eight boy's and five girls, with eleven of the children under the age of 16. There was also a female, age fourty to fourty nine, in his household who was the right age to be his wife Mary. The families of Southey (brother of Thomas) and Jacob (cousin to Thomas) Sanders were his neighbors.

<b><I>"The Coppinger Journal " [circa 1833]</I></b>
<BR>
<b><I> Record Extraction By Mike Fromholt, 16 Oct,1999 </I></b><BR>
<a href=http://www2.fwi.com/~migen/cope/cope1.htm><font color=red>Source--Cope Family History Pages</font></a>
<BR>
The following information was originally given to Mike Fromholt by Betty M Majors during his trip to McMinnville Tennseesse in 1999. Betty said that it came from a photocopy of a book that was in the possession of a Trudy Coppinger and how this "Trudy" fits into the Cope family line has yet to be discovered. <BR>
On the margin of the book was written "Bought in Warren County on the 1st thursday in August on Eleection Day in 1833." The Females Praticle Monitor or Guide to Health" by Thom A Anderson,M.D., 1832".<BR>
It appears that this was someones personal journal where they kept a running log of the family births and deaths . It lists all 16 children of Stephen and Comfort Cope as well as some of the descendants and other associated family members. The information given within this journal has been found to be consistently correct and as far as I know, there are only two people in this list that Mike F. has been unable to identify as descendants of Stephen and Comfort. The two entries in question are Earnest Sanders and Livsay Sanders even though it is suspected they are associated with the line of Lousia Cope and Andrew Sanders. <BR>

<I>This was the first document I found which offered a birthdate for my great grandfather Wm L Sanders as well as info about his mother: Salina Patton Cope (Sanders) b. Mar 8, 1838 - d. 23 June 1871. All was later verified as correct through comparison with primary source records currently in my possession. (ie: death/marriage certs) </I> <BR>

<font color=red size=+1> What is an Ahnentafel?<b></b></font>
<BR>
From a German word meaning "ancestor table," an Ahnentafel is a list of a person's ancestors in a particular order. It is a construct used in genealogy to display a person's ancestry compactly, without the need for a diagram such as a family tree, which is particularly useful in situations where one may be restricted to using plain text, for example in e-mails or newsgroup articles.<BR>
After listing the person as #1, you list their father as #2 and their mother as #3, then their grandparents as #4 to #7, and so on back through the generations. In this scheme, any person's father has double that person's number, and a person's mother has double the person's number plus one. Apart from #1, who can be male or female, all even-numbered persons are male, and all odd-numbered persons are female.<BR>

DON'T MESS AROUND WITH JACK or His Stetson Hats...

Melvin J. Sanders, or "Jack" as he was referred to by all was not one to "mess with" so to speak. According to our colorful Sanders family oral history, Jack was quite a dresser and loved his Stetson Hat which he was known for. They say he "wore it well". I would like to share a story about my infamous great uncle as told to me by my Uncle Eddie Sanders of Mason Ohio (son of Cecil S Sanders of Grundy County TN_Alma E Dailey-Harings 01/2004

"The one story that I do remember very well about him was as follows;

He was a very stylish dresser and was known for the beautiful Stetson hats he wore. The family as you already know grew up in Trafford, Alabama and one by one drifted away to make their own lives. It seemed that a couple of them (Jack and Dad) would retreat back to Trafford when they got in over their heads. Trafford is a very small town and everyone know everyone else and especially their business. Seems there was a very large family who live just a couple of houses away from the Sanders. There were twenty seven children in the family and the older boys in the family were younger than Jack and Dad by maybe a couple of years. They were bullies and made many a persons life miserable in that small town. One day when Jack had returned to Trafford for a visit (Or hiding out) he dressed in his nice cloths and his Stetson hat and walked across the railroad to town and was standing at the south end of the depot. When three of the older boys from this family approached him looking for trouble. After a few words one grabbed Jacks Steson Hat and stomped in on the ground. Jack came out with a small knife he carried and slit all three of their throats. The oldest died some time later but the other two survived. There was a murder warrant put out on Jack so that was his last visit to Trafford. This incident happened around 1925 I think. The story was told to me by some local townsfolk but my memory can't conjure up the exact date. Jack never returned to Alabama after that and when his mother died the family tried to sneak him in but the law was everywhere waiting for him to show up."

Eddie S Sanders
Short Bio Sketch
Submitted by Alma E. Dailey-Harings

May 23, 2004


The first-born child of Cecil S Sanders and the former Alma V. Dixon, Eddie S Sanders was born in the city of Jenkins, Letcher County Kentucky on November 19, 1937. His father was a travelling salesman and unfortunately was away from home more often than not.

By the time 1950 rolled around, Eddie's family had moved from Jenkins Kentucky to Trafford Alabama and ultimately on to Shreveport Louisiana where his father was able to find steady employment with the government.

Eddie loved Shreveport, and had this to say in a recent letter he wrote:

"Life for me as a 12 - 15 year old was to do whatever it took to entertain myself and to make as many friends as possible. I loved Shreveport and have always felt like it was home although we were only there for three years before dad died and we wound up back in Jenkins."


On June 09, 1953 Cecil S Sanders died from a massive heart attack leaving Eddie and his family in shock. Shortly after his father was laid to rest in Clintwood, Virginia, Eddie left home and joined the Army spending the following few months touring the Middle East.

Unfortunately, Eddie's tour was cut short when the Army finally realized that he was only15 years old on the day of his enlistment.

Later in the fall of 1954, Ed joined the Air force and served on Okinawa during the years of 1955-1957. I know that Uncle Ed served for a total of 6 years, though the remaining details of his service are currently unknown to me.

A couple of Eddie's hobbies have included playing a good game of golf and a deep appreciation and love of trains.

Eddie's first marriage was in 1961 to Ada Ruth Insko with their union producing three children, Thomas Edward, b. 1961, Patrick Christian b. 1963 and their last born Kelly Lynn Sanders in 1967.

Eddie later met and married his soul mate Christine Wilson of Boonville Kentucky in 1975. Their son Josh was born about five years later and remains the apple of their eye. Christine's chosen profession was that of a high school teacher.


Eddie was unbelievably enterprising. Equipped with an innate sense for business and a keen ability to sell, his ventures, many of which were quite successful, were both numerous and varied throughout his life. If I had to choose one word that would best describe his lifelong vocation, it would be that of a salesman. (Note: One that could sell an Ice Maker to an Eskimo.)

Eddie was forced to retire when he was suddenly involved in an auto accident near his home that nearly cost him his life on May 11, 2002. After three months in the hospital and a year of agonizing physical therapy, Uncle Ed still manages to get around. But not like he used to.
His mobility is restricted and his memory plays tricks on him sometimes.

I asked Uncle Ed what he missed the most and his reply was as follows:

"There are so many things that I use to do and took for granted that I cannot even begin to do now. I had a 5 handicap in golf and now I cannot swing a club. I use to love to take walks with Christine in the evenings and now just have to watch her go alone. We loved to shop together and now if I have to walk more that a couple of hundred feet I begin to hurt and have to sit down. But, I am still here and I guess that puts me ahead of the game by the grace of God. Love Uncle Ed""

Eddie and Christine are both retired now and are `Snow bunnies`, making seasonal hops between their homes in FL and the Midwest.

Lib,

So, to answer some of your questions I will start with who raised Paul after our mother died. Paul was raised by aunt Loretta and uncle George Fleming. Paul is buried in a cemetery called "Green Acres" and that is the same cemetery that Uncle Les, Aunt Ersel, Aunt Loretta and Uncle George is buried in. Uncle Les's family is also buried there. Loretta is Shirley's mother and her real father's name was Dotson.

Shirley and I spent most of our early years with our grand parents. I remember that somewhere around 1943 or 44 my mom and dad finally came and got me. They had moved to Baltimore, Maryland and when we arrived there it was the first time I had seen a commode. I peeded on the seat (I didn't know that you were supposed to raise the seat) and dad raised holy hell with me. Funny how you never forget those things. Bill Daniels email address is: billyd14863@aol.com . He is the only remaining sibling of the Daniels family. His sister Joe Ann and Doris have passed away. Running out of space so will write again later. Love, Uncle Ed

Dear Libby, I am so glad that you enjoyed the video. I have meant to ask you several times if you had received it realizing that it had taken so long to send it to you that you had given up on me. The last two times I have written you I've been in a hurry. I had to take a friend to Dayton, Ohio this morning and had a customer coming this afternoon. So, now that I have the time to write it seems that I can't think of anything to write about. Did you do any follow up on my uncle John's son killing him? I don't know where to start looking for that kind of information. I believe that the same son was killed in WW II just a few years after he killed his father. That must have been a very bad time in their lives. Dad, Uncle John and Jack had terrible problems with alcohol and no doubt, tobacco. I know that dad smoked and drank himself into the grave. I too had a problem with alcohol and maybe still do but nothing compared to dad's. One day when we can sit down together I will tell you the story of our lives. I doubt that I could come close to writing the story but you would find it interesting and I can guarantee that it would make you sad. Your life and upbringing paralled our lives because it was the only kind of life that we knew. I got lucky later in life and married Christine who has provided me with a home and a life that is pleasant and fruitful. I am planning to return to Phoenix soon and perhaps we can get together for a day. I will let you know when I can come out and we can make plans. Bedtime here so take care and we send our love to you and Pete.

Some History on Aunt Christine and her folks
an excerpt from Uncle Eddies letter dated March 2004

Christine was raised on a small farm in eastern Kentucky and lived in only two places while growing up. Her family rented or share cropped a farm for many years and finally her father saved enough money to buy one of his own. There she lived until she went off to college in Richmond, Kentucky. Her mother is an armature writer and has written short stories for several newspapers in central and eastern Kentucky. She wrote a book using several stories that she had written for different publications over a period of maybe thirty years and it is wonderful if you like history and loving stories. The book is called "Chestnut Hill" and the subject is raising her family on a small farm.

Ed & Chris were Married 1961 in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio.

Yup! I can help. Gary was born on January 28, 1948 in Baltimore, Maryland. I remember mom being pregnant with Gary on Christmas day of that year. It was the first Christmas that we had not traveled to Clintwood to be with mom's family that I can remember. On that day we received the phone call that told us that Mommy Dixon had died. It was a shock that I will never forget. If you have ever seen a picture of your mother and I sitting in a cane chair, that was about the time Mommy die and a month later Gary was born. Dad had been hoboing around the country trying to find work and out run the law during the early 40's and wound up in Ogden Utah where some friendly person fed and gave him a warm place to sleep. So, the name "Ogden" stayed with him and he passed it onto Gary. Dad had worked for a car dealership in Norton, Virginia during the late thirties and early forties and had conned a title clerk (Female of course) into titling a car in his name. So the bottom line was that he stole the car. That meant that he had to leave Virginia and lay low until the law stopped looking for him. Paul was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. More later. Love, Uncle Ed

Libby, Since my accident I sometimes have trouble putting thing together. For example; if you ask me two questions I have no problem responding to the first but by that time I have forgotten the second question. Does that make sense to you? I have wanted to tell you the story of part of our lives that most likely affect you the most.
We moved from Trafford, Alabama in 1950 to Shreveport. I found out later that Aunt Elsie had gotten dad the job that took us to Shreveport and it had something to do with the government. I never knew exactly what dad did for them but at least he had a job and we had a roof over our heads. Life for me as a 12 - 15 year old was to do whatever it took to entertain myself and to make as many friends as possible. I loved Shreveport and have always felt like it was home although we were only there for three years before dad died and we wound up back in Jenkins. Soon after Paul was born in 1952 mom developed a goiter in her throat. It worsened each day to the point that she was pretty much incapacitated and Peggy became mother to Paul and Gary. She was also the house keeper and cook. I spent most of my time running with my friends as for the most part was unaware of the seriousness of moms illness. Peggy was taken out of school and became the homemaker. Dad showed up on some weekends and stayed drunk most of the time. We really did not have a family life and I drifted away from the rest of them spending most of my time with friends. I became aware of moms illness when she was taken to Oak Ridge, Tennessee for radiation treatment for the goiter. She must have been close to death when they took her to Oak Ridge. Peggy became the main stay in the house for dad showed up only occasionally and spent most of the time at home in bed drunk. Then Aunt Edna came to stay with us for about three weeks and she made Peggy's life more miserable that it already was. I hate to speak badly of the dead but that woman was a devil. She beat your mother and once tied her to a table to make sure that she didn't leave the house. Again, I was gone most of the time and had no idea how bad it was at home and in reality, was too stupid to know what was going on or to do anything about it. Finally Edna left and it wasn't more than a couple of weeks that a man that dad worked with came to the house at told Peggy and I that dad had died. A church group came to the house and packed us up and Peggy and I brought Paul and Gary by train back to Jenkins for dads funeral. I always thought that the church group was responsible for preparing us for the trip and paying our way back to Kentucky. But, years later found out that it was mom's sisters and brothers that had paid our way and also paid for dads funeral. I don't remember any premonitions about dad's death and don't much believe in them but, respect those who do. Grand Dad Sanders and uncle Hatton and his son attended dad's funeral and I rode back to Alabama with them. Uncle Hatton was without a doubt the cheapest person I've ever met. He would have his son (Who was driving) buy only one dollars worth of gasoline when we stopped. And, Grand Pa Sanders would buy a pound of baloney and a loaf of bread and that is what we had to eat on the trip back to Alabama. I stayed a few days with Grand Pa and he gave me the money to buy a bus ticket back to Shreveport. I joined the Army shortly after I arrived and spent the next few months traveling the far east. After I left the Army mom and family had move back to Jenkins. I had no idea how bad off financially that they were. Moms sisters and brothers had helped them about as much as they could because all of them were just about as poor as we were. I left in the fall of 1954 for the Air Force. Peggy became pregent with her first child about that time and as you know later lost her baby. Mom move her family to Cincinnati shortly after that. She, Peggy and the boys suffered badly from lack of food and health care. Mom and Peggy worked at a factory in Cincinnati for what was called "Piece Work". Both struggled to make a home for Paul and Gary and then Peggy became pregnant with you. I visited a few times during this period and learned that Peggy was pregnant and met Bob Plummer for the first time. Bob and I hit it off and he told me that he was the one who had impregnated Peggy and had begged her to marry him. He asked me to help him convince her to marry him and that he would make a home for the two of you. Peggy would have nothing to do with that idea and rejected him. I don't know why but I firmly believe that Bob was indeed your father. Bob really loved your mother and did as much for her as she would allow him to do. I am going to end this letter now and hope that it will add a little of our history to what you already know. I will write again soon and will email some photos in the next few days. Love, Uncle Ed

The Gift of "Second Sight"

My great grandmother Sallie Mae Taylor- Dixon was referred to as Little Mommie by those closest to her. She was a petite mountain woman who dedicated her life caring for her home & family.

According to our family legend, Sallie had "the gift of second sight" or what some may call a sixth sense. She seemed to know things before they would happen. As an example, here is an excerpt from a recent letter written about Sallie Mae by my mother's brother, Uncle Ed Sanders in November of 2003...


Yes Libby, I always referred to my Grandmother as "Little Mommie" and your mother was right, she did have a "Sixth Sense". Let me giveyou an example;

As your mother may have told you, a cousin "Shirley" who was about nine months older than I lived most of our lives prior to Little Mommy's death on Christmas day of 1947 with she and Poppy Dixon.

One day Shirley and I were outside playing and hadn't noticed that a storm was brewing nearby. The mountains blocked everything in the sky except that which was directly above us. When all of the sudden Mommie came running out of the kitchen and grabbed Shirley and I and carried us into the kitchen. She held us tightly to her breast while a cyclone passed outside the window where Shirley and I had been playing just moments ago.

The tree in which we had been playing in was gone and all that was left was a hole in the ground. How she knew that that storm was coming was beyond us, but even as young as we were, we knew that she had just saved our lives.

As far as I know, a storm had never happened there like that before and has never happened since. So, do you call that a "Sixth Sense"? .....

Little Mommie was the most gentle and loving person that I have ever known.

If one of her children (Or family) was on their way home (As we called it, "going home") she would spend hours cooking and cleaning, getting ready for them and then would sit by the window in the kitchen all night waiting for the car containing her loved ones to come up the holler. My aunt Mable (Uncle Ray's wife) is the same way and I just love her to death. My wife Christine grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky and her mother who has written articles for several newspapers throughout Kentucky for years has written a book called "Chestnut Hill". It is about her family growing up and the hardships of farm life in rural Kentucky. Although the people are disguised, its not hard to figure out who they are. I will send you a copy of her book and I can promise you that you will enjoy it. The book will give you a better insight into just how hard it was to live and raise a family in Eastern Kentucky during the 50's and 60's. Libby, us older folks are known as "Living history books" and I often think that since all but two of the generation before me are gone I should record as much history as possible. And, I am trying to do that and as it is compiled I will share it with you. I will email you some recent photos tomorrow. Right now it is my bedtime and my lights are about to go out. Love, Uncle Ed

I can recall my mother telling similar stories about Sallie Mae when I was just a little girl. Even then I was amazed by the physical and spiritual fortitude of this little woman. Her strength could not have been all her own. I remember being told that It was not unusual to see little mommie suddenly drop to her knees in prayer. Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to meet her as she died on Christmas Day in 1947 which was well before my birth. Even so, I believe her existence affected my life thru the sharing of her stories. I believe my faith in God was strengthened by her example. And for her legacy I am truly grateful.

Thank you little mommie.... I look forward to the day I meet you on the other side..

Your great granddaughter

<font color=red size=+1>About My Grandmother Alma V Dixon-Sanders</font> <BR>
Alma V Dixon was only 16 when she married Cecil Steve Sanders in Yeager KY on 27 July 1935. According to family oral history... Cecil was very protective of Alma sheltering her as best he could during the course of their marriage. Alma was not expected to work outside of the home or to concern herself with things such as managing the household finances or even balancing a check-book. <BR>
Alma remained blissfully ignorant to many of the harsh realities of life during the course of their marriage, and in September of 1953 gave birth to their fourth child Paul Allen Sanders. Shortly thereafter Alma developing a goiter in her throat that worsened each day to the point that she was pretty much incapacitated. <BR>
Their daughter Peggy was taken out of school becoming mother to her brothers, caregiver to her mother, the housekeeper as well as the cook. The oldest son later shared with this writer that he did not become aware of the seriousness of the situation until his mother was admitted to the Cancer Research Hospital in Oak Ridge Tennessee that year. <BR>
I shutter to think of how she must have felt when she learned that her husband had died from a massive heart attack the following June. I do not think that she could have been less prepared ultimately having to move her children from Shreveport back to Jenkins KY in hopes of receiving support from her family. Her brothers and sisters helped out as much as they could but Alma ultimately wound up moving to Cincinnati Ohio where she and her daughter Peggy could find work. <BR>
I have been told that Alma and Peg did the best they could to provide a home for the boys though all of them suffered horribly from lack of proper nutrition and health care. Alma did not live long after the death of her husband. According to Alma's last surviving brother Roy Dixon of Wise Co VA, Alma died in 1958 attempting to give birth to her unborn child. She was only 39. <BR>

<b>Authors Note:</b>

My Cousin Karen Sanders of Alabama and (daug of Kenneth H Sanders) shared the following about our Aunt Elsie:

Elsie was a wonderful person and I so wished I had had a chance to know her growing up. My hateful grandmother, Cecil's wife, (Mattie) never allowed my dad or Uncle Erskine to visit Cecils side of the family so my dad never even told me about her and she lived right there in Trafford (my home town). I didn't find out about her until I started the geneaology. I have a lot of her letters.
Apparently Aunt Elsie wrote a book or poem that was published, here is a portion:

"Sing on of the past, O friendliest stream;
Sing of my childhood and a child I shall seem
O Mulberry river, sing on while I dream! -----
" I Live in the Hills " by Elsie Duncan Sanders

<font color=blue size=+1 face="comic sans ms"> <b> Emery H Sanders in the Census Records (1860, 1910 and 1920) </b> </font> <BR>

Nine month old Emery H. Sanders was found listed in the 1860 Grundy County Tennessee Census records as a white male and only child of MP & Salina Sanders. Emery's father, Milton Porter Sanders, was listed as the head of their Pelham TN household who was working as a coal miner at that time. Emerys mother Salina, 21. Emery's father Milton was working as a coal miner. <BR>
EH (Emery) Sanders was later enumerated as head of household in the 1910 census of Jefferson County Alabama. . He was listed as a 52 year old married white male who's occupation was coal miner. Odella was his wife of seven years and was listed as a 42 year old white female who was born in Georgia. Also listed were Four children, two boys and two girls. Five year old Emilie was the only child living in the household believed to be the issue of Emery and Odella Sanders. The remaining three children, Herman 15. Mertie 11 and Chessie 9 were from a previous marriage between Odella and Joseph M Williams. Odella's sister, Mandy Grantham, was also residing in the Sanders household in 1910 and was listed as a 64 year old single female. Mandy Grantham is Odella's sister even though the birth states for her parents don't match those given by Odella in the 1910 census record. <BR>
Emery was again listed as head of household within the 1920 Census for Walker County Alabama & was living in Oakman Township. Emery Sanders as well as both of his parents were listed as being born in Tennessee. The occupation for this white male was that of Coal Miner. <BR>

April 2004

Although Emery Sanders is not directly related to me (except as a
step-greatgrandfather), I still would like to know about his parentage
and am delighted that you contacted me about him.
One of my aunts told me about playing a trick on him while he was
asleep on the porch at her parents' house. She said he had a full beard
and she stuck a bird in it. After he awoke....suddenly it seems....he
chased her around the yard. I don't recall ever seeing him, but I
vaguely recall his wife (my greatgrandmother) Odella, who I knew as
"Grandma Sanders". She was a old small woman in a sunbonnet and nice,
however I was only about 9 years old when she died and have no other
recollections of her. I have no pictures of her or Emery.
One of my aunts (the same one that tricked Emery) told me something
interesting about Odella, which may be of interest to you. Odella's
daughter (my grandmother) Bessie Lena Williams Dickinson was very
pretty when she was about 18-20 based on a picture I have. She also
looks like she has considerable American Indian blood. When I asked my
aunt if she knew anything about Indian ancestry in our family, she said
her grandmother (Odella) told them (Bessie's children) that they had a
lot of Indian blood and told them stories about some of their
ancestors. Unfortunately my aunt, then in her 70s, recalled no details
other than that. The only related thing she remembered was when she was in
grammar school and the children were asked to tell something about themselves.
She said she stood and very proudly said "My daddy's from England and my mama's an Indian!"

Yup! I can help. Gary was born on January 28, 1948 in Baltimore, Maryland. I remember mom being pregnant with Gary on Christmas day of that year. It was the first Christmas that we had not traveled to Clintwood to be with mom's family that I can remember. On that day we received the phone call that told us that Mommy Dixon had died. It was a shock that I will never forget. If you have ever seen a picture of your mother and I sitting in a cane chair, that was about the time Mommy die and a month later Gary was born. Dad had been hoboing around the country trying to find work and out run the law during the early 40's and wound up in Ogden Utah where some friendly person fed and gave him a warm place to sleep. So, the name "Ogden" stayed with him and he passed it onto Gary. Dad had worked for a car dealership in Norton, Virginia during the late thirties and early forties and had conned a title clerk (Female of course) into titling a car in his name. So the bottom line was that he stole the car. That meant that he had to leave Virginia and lay low until the law stopped looking for him. Paul was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. More later.

Libby, Since my accident I sometimes have trouble putting thing together. For example; if you ask me two questions I have no problem responding to the first but by that time I have forgotten the second question. Does that make sense to you? I have wanted to tell you the story of part of our lives that most likely affect you the most.
We moved from Trafford, Alabama in 1950 to Shreveport. I found out later that Aunt Elsie had gotten dad the job that took us to Shreveport and it had something to do with the government. I never knew exactly what dad did for them but at least he had a job and we had a roof over our heads. Life for me as a 12 - 15 year old was to do whatever it took to entertain myself and to make as many friends as possible. I loved Shreveport and have always felt like it was home although we were only there for three years before dad died and we wound up back in Jenkins. Soon after Paul was born in 1952 mom developed a goiter in her throat. It worsened each day to the point that she was pretty much incapacitated and Peggy became mother to Paul and Gary. She was also the house keeper and cook. I spent most of my time running with my friends as for the most part was unaware of the seriousness of moms illness. Peggy was taken out of school and became the homemaker. Dad showed up on some weekends and stayed drunk most of the time. We really did not have a family life and I drifted away from the rest of them spending most of my time with friends. I became aware of moms illness when she was taken to Oak Ridge, Tennessee for radiation treatment for the goiter. She must have been close to death when they took her to Oak Ridge. Peggy became the main stay in the house for dad showed up only occasionally and spent most of the time at home in bed drunk. Then Aunt Edna came to stay with us for about three weeks and she made Peggy's life more miserable that it already was. I hate to speak badly of the dead but that woman was a devil. She beat your mother and once tied her to a table to make sure that she didn't leave the house. Again, I was gone most of the time and had no idea how bad it was at home and in reality, was too stupid to know what was going on or to do anything about it. Finally Edna left and it wasn't more than a couple of weeks that a man that dad worked with came to the house at told Peggy and I that dad had died. A church group came to the house and packed us up and Peggy and I brought Paul and Gary by train back to Jenkins for dads funeral. I always thought that the church group was responsible for preparing us for the trip and paying our way back to Kentucky. But, years later found out that it was mom's sisters and brothers that had paid our way and also paid for dads funeral. I don't remember any premonitions about dad's death and don't much believe in them but, respect those who do. Grand Dad Sanders and uncle Hatton and his son attended dad's funeral and I rode back to Alabama with them. Uncle Hatton was without a doubt the cheapest person I've ever met. He would have his son (Who was driving) buy only one dollars worth of gasoline when we stopped. And, Grand Pa Sanders would buy a pound of baloney and a loaf of bread and that is what we had to eat on the trip back to Alabama. I stayed a few days with Grand Pa and he gave me the money to buy a bus ticket back to Shreveport. I joined the Army shortly after I arrived and spent the next few months traveling the far east. After I left the Army mom and family had move back to Jenkins. I had no idea how bad off financially that they were. Moms sisters and brothers had helped them about as much as they could because all of them were just about as poor as we were. I left in the fall of 1954 for the Air Force. Peggy became pregent with her first child about that time and as you know later lost her baby. Mom move her family to Cincinnati shortly after that. She, Peggy and the boys suffered badly from lack of food and health care. Mom and Peggy worked at a factory in Cincinnati for what was called "Piece Work". Both struggled to make a home for Paul and Gary and then Peggy became pregnant with you. I visited a few times during this period and learned that Peggy was pregnant and met Bob Plummer for the first time. Bob and I hit it off and he told me that he was the one who had impregnated Peggy and had begged her to marry him. He asked me to help him convince her to marry him and that he would make a home for the two of you. Peggy would have nothing to do with that idea and rejected him. I don't know why but I firmly believe that Bob was indeed your father. Bob really loved your mother and did as much for her as she would allow him to do. I am going to end this letter now and hope that it will add a little of our history to what you already know. I will write again soon and will email some photos in the next few days. Love, Uncle Ed

Hi Libby, I am sorry if I confused you about Hershel. Uncle Ray was the youngest son of Wm. L and Minnie. Only Aunt Elsie was born after Ray and she was the last. Uncle Ray had three sons. First was; Jimmy, born Mar 1929 and died in 1998. Second was Donald, born 1932, died 1991. Hershel is the only one left and he was born in 1934. Hershel lives with his family in Crossville, TN. All were born around Harlan County, KY. Hershel believes that his father was born in or around Tracey City, TN. Do you remember that I asked you if you could dig up anything on a girl whose photo I sent you by the name of Joyce Sanders? Well, Hershel told me who she was; She was Jimmy's wife and she passed away about four years prior to his passing. So, that's a mystery solved. Anyway, hope this enlightens you about more of our Sanders Family.. Love, Uncle Ed

New Parents: Jason and Sabine Sanders

How I Got the Good News About Sara:

The following email was originally sent to my first cousin in Iraq notifying him that he was now an Uncle to His brother Jason's first born child. This "good news" message filtered it's way thru the family and finally made it's way to me, via my Uncle Ed Sanders of Mason Ohio.


I have also attached the photos' of our newest Sanders Family addition which were taken directly after she was born.
Honestly, don't you think that most newborn babies are sorta wrinkled & funny looking---like maybe their not finished cooking??---like they need to be put back in the oven to bake for a few more months or something?

Well not this beauty! I have NEVER seen such a beautiful newborn. She is simply breathtaking. Sara Michelle Sanders. May she have a long, frutiful, healthy and happy life and may she never lose her sense of wonder.

Notes by Alma Harings <aharings@cox.net>
SANDERS FAMILY TRAGEDY

FATHER, John H Sanders Sr. of Blount County Alabama SHOT AND KILLED by his first born SON and namesake, John H. Sanders Jr. during a domestic dispute in 1942.


John Sr. was born 11 Mar 1898 in Grundy County TN and was the son of William Lafayette & Minnie "Farmer" Sanders. John and his wife Myrtle had six children which they raised in the Blount County Alabama area .

According to family legend, John H . Sanders (Sr.) was shot in the chest and killed during a domestic dispute with his wife. (Myrtle) It seems that his first born son and name sake John H. Sanders, Jr. feared for the safety of his mother and shot his father "through a window" in her defense. John Sr. died in Blount County AL on November 09, 1942. I believe he owned his own home and was living in Selfville, Blount, AL in 1930. ( as per the census) so it was quite possible that he was living in the same town when he was shot and killed.

Murder charges were never filed against 23 yr old John Jr,. According to my Sanders family elders, the local authorities suggested that John Jr join the military without delay, so he enlisted into the Army promptly and was assigned to the 165th Infantry Regiment_ 27th Divison. Pvt Sanders served in the Pacific Theater for nearly two years before losing his own life in the Mariana Islands.

During the attack on Saipan on 17 Jun 1944, John was shot and killed by an unknown Japenese soldier and was listed as missing for a time. A memorial acknowledging his participation in that battle was found inscribed in granite at the American Memorial Park in Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands.

Battle on Saipan (Pacific Theater) June 1944

This article focuses on the events on Saipan where my ancestor Pvt. John Homer Sanders Jr. of the 165th Infantry Regiment_27th Army Division was killed in action on June 17th 1944. PFC Sanders was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star and is currently listed as missing in action. A memorial acknowledging PFC Sanders participation in that Battle was found inscribed in granite at the American Memorial Park in Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands.

Today marked the 60th anniversary of D-Day. The day allied Troops stormed the beaches at Normandy. How ironic to find the following history on this very special day of rememberance and reflection. June 1944 would find the United States Navy involved in more than one ambitious naval expedition, on oppisite sides of the globe. Even as Operation Overlord returned the Allies to France, Operation Forager was about to deliver the Marines and Army onto the Marianas Islands. Here is an excerpt from that battle history eloquently written by Soren Swigart.

Alma Harings
aharings@cox.net



The World at War
Operation Forager
The Invasion of Saipan, Tinian and Guam



The Marianas Islands were considered important for several reasons. The first was the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Ernest King's conviction that the Marianas were the key to the Central Pacific because they dominated the communications with Japan's "Inner South Seas Empire". Capture of the islands would provide the Pacific Fleet with bases from which they could attack the enemy's air-sea communications and strike with equal ease at Palau, the Philippines, Formosa or China. Navy planners also felt that a bold strike into the vitals of the Japanese position would force the Combined Fleet to give battle and hazard itself to destruction at the hands of US Navy.

The Army Air Corps also had an equally important need for bases from which its new long range bomber, the B-29, could make non-stop strategic strikes on the Japanese home islands.

The Marianas Islands consist largely of rugged wooded mountains (though this is somewhat less true of Tinian) and are quite large compared with Tarawa. Guam is more than 30 miles long, Saipan about 14. They are ringed with coral reefs which compound the difficulties of amphibious assault by channelizing the approach to the beaches. The Japanese defenders by mid-1944 numbered some 60,000, about half of them on Saipan. Situated more than a thousand miles from the nearest US base, this enemy force represented the most remote and formidable target the Navy/Marine team had so far attempted. The Navy would find its logistical capabilities stretched to the limit to support the largest amphibious operation yet mounted in the Pacific.

US intelligence estimated the Japanese force on Saipan at 19,000. In fact there were more than 29,000. Three quarters of this number were Army including the 43rd Infantry Division, 47th Independent Mixed Brigade, (essentially a regimental combat team with extra artillery), a tank regiment, two engineer regiments, an antiaircraft regiment and other smaller units. These troops were commanded by General Y. Saito The Navy made up the rest of the forces. They were commanded by Admiral Nagumo of Pearl Harbor fame. The Navy was concentrated around Tanapag Harbor, were well fortified and manned a variety of heavy artillery including a battery of 8 inch guns. There were also three airfields on Saipan but their planes had long been destroyed by the 5th Fleet's fighters.

Admiral Raymond Spruance's 5th Fleet, some 800 ships, was charged with transporting 80,000 Marines and nearly 50,000 soldiers to the landing beaches. They would be escorted by Task Force 58, Admiral Marc Mitscher's superb force of 12 fast aircraft carriers flying some 800 aircraft and accompanied by 8 battleships and 80 other warships. TF 58 was the weapon with which the US Navy planned to destroy the Japanese Combined Fleet when and if it ventured forth to support the Marianas garrisons.

The Expeditionary Troops comprising 3 Marine Divisions, a reinforced Marine Brigade and 2 Army Infantry Divisions were commanded by Lt General Holland M. Smith, USMC. This force was divided into the Northern Troops and Landing Force, for the assault of Saipan and Tinian, commanded directly by General Smith, and the Southern Troops and Landing Force, for the following operation against Guam, commanded by Maj. General Roy Geiger, USMC.

After intense air operations on the 11th and 12th of June, followed on the 13th by a daylong bombardment from the fast battleships of TF 58, the plan called for the 2nd and 4th Marine Divisions to land abreast on about four miles of beaches on the west side of Saipan south of Garapan, the 2nd on the left and the 4th on the right. In reserve would be the 27th Infantry Division part of which had fought at Makin and Eniwetok. To the north above Tanapag units of this floating reserve would stage a demonstration to draw Japanese attention away from the real landings. The immediate objective of the landings was to seize a line far enough inland to preclude Japanese direct fire on the beaches. To do this rapidly over 700 amphibian tractors, some armored models mounting a 75mm infantry gun, had the job of pushing the first waves about a mile inland before debarking. This was a bold plan but it would come up short in execution.

As June 15th dawned bright and clear, a specially trained bombardment squadron consisting of 4 old but effective battleships, 8 cruisers and 7 destroyers moved close aboard the Charen Kanoa beaches and commenced firing. The Marines came on four regiments abreast led by the armored amphibians. Preceding them were 24 rocket firing LCI-gunboats. Overhead, Marine and Navy fliers dropped bombs and made strafing runs on suspected enemy strongpoints. A thick pall of smoke and dust obscured the low ridges which rose in the rear of the beaches. Battleship Tennessee fired her big guns point blank at the fortifications on Agingan Point that flanked the 4th Division's landing beaches. Everything that could be done had been done. Admiral Turner signaled the traditional order to "Land the landing force" In waves the Marines went in. As the first LVTs clambered over the coral reef they seemed to explode under a torrent of Japanese shells. The Japanese had positioned colored flags in the lagoon to mark the range of the landing forces and now heavy artillery and mortar fire rained down on them with pin-point accuracy. Out of the 68 armored amphibians which had led the 6th and 8th Marine Regiments to the beach, 31 were destroyed or disabled. While the leading waves landed and debarked far short of the plan, the Japanese opened an accurate long range grazing fire with heavy machine guns sited in the hills around. Far from being suppressed by the prelanding bombardment, they had survived with most of their artillery and fortifications intact. The Marines found themselves being pounded by heavy guns firing from defillade while taking continuous flanking fire from Agingan and Afetna Points. Losses among officers was very high. 2nd Battalion, 6th Marines, had four different commanders before nightfall. Over 2,000 casualties were sustained during the landing.

The next two days, June 16 and 17, were spent struggling to expand the beachhead enough to prevent the Japanese from observing and taking every move of the Landing Forces under fire. The 2nd Marine Division had tough going as it fought to gain the slopes of Mounts Tapotchau and Tipo Pale. On the night of the 15th, the 8th Marines repelled a strong counterattack while the next night, B Company, 6th Marines, were overrun by the first large scale tank attack faced by Marines during the war. Morning light would reveal the derelict hulks of 31 destroyed tanks inside B Company's wire.
Meanwhile developments at sea had taken a fortuitous turn for Admiral Spruance. The Japanese Fleet was coming out. It was decided to delay the landings on Guam and to land the Army's 27th Infantry Division on Saipan immediately. After night fell on June 17th, Spruance and the 5th Fleet sortied to meet the Japanese in a battle later known as "The Marianas Turkey Shoot".
Although the fleet and most of the naval gunfire was absent, conditions were improving onshore. Gen. Holland Smith had landed and set up his headquarters at Charan Kanoa. With the arrival of the 27th Division, all of the Northern Landing Force were ashore. After fierce resistance the Japanese were beginning to feel the constant pressure the Marines were exerting. On the night of June 18th, Saito ordered his secret papers and codebooks destroyed and sent a message to Tokyo: "By becoming the bulwark of the Pacific with 10,000 deaths we hope to requite the Imperial favor." That day the Marines pushed across the cane fields towards Magicienne Bay on Saipan's east side. On the right of the 4th Marine Division, the 165th Infantry secured Aslito airfield with no opposition. By the 20th, the island was bisected when the 4th Marine Division reached the sea on the opposite side of the island.
While the Marine Divisions formed line abreast to drive north to the end of the island, Spruance's 5th Fleet was scoring a huge victory with the destruction of Japanese naval aviation in the Battle of the Philippine Sea. Spruance comes in for criticism from some quarters for not chasing Ozawa's battered force as they withdrew but the Marines were glad to see the return of the fleet and its big guns.
The terrain of the north end of Saipan was described by one officer as "a nightmare of sheer cliffs and precipitous hills,". The fighting was characterized by the use of the flame-thrower, satchel charge, grenade and bulldozer. Suicidal charges by the trapped Japanese led to many episodes of hand-to-hand combat.
While the Japanese refused the opportunity to surrender and suffered nearly total casualties in every encounter with the Marines, Corporal John Basilone, a Japanese speaking Marine from Los Angeles was successful in talking nearly a 1,000 Japanese into surrendering and thus saving their lives. For this Basilone was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, his country's highest military award.
On June 22nd, the 27th Infantry Division was inserted into the center of the line between the two Marine divisions. Unfortunately the Army regiments were unable to maintain pace with the battle-hardened Marines on their flanks and soon the line took on a concave U shape. By the end of the day General Holland Smith could no longer hide his concern over the poor showing of the 27th Infantry Division. Major General Sanderford Jarman, USA, senior army officer on Saipan was asked by General Smith to go to the commander of the 27th, General Ralph Smith, USA, and impress upon him the need for haste. Jarman found Smith despondent over his division's lack of fight and quoted him as saying if the division did not do better on the morrow that he (General Smith) should be relieved. Unfortunately this came to pass the next afternoon when Holland Smith exercised his prerogative and replaced him with the aforesaid General Jarman. This episode would create much bitter inter-service rivalry between the Marines and the Army that would have repercussions later on in the war. While the 27th Division tried to work out its command problems, the 2nd Marine Division in a bold attack captured Mount Tapochau. This was the beginning of the end for the Japanese. On July 1st the battle for Saipan entered its final stage. The 2nd Division over three days of sustained fighting captured the shattered ruins of Garapan and Tanapag Harbor.
As the remaining defenders were compressed into an ever smaller area, General Holland Smith became concerned about the possibility of a final banzai charge and on July 2nd he paid a visit to the headquarters of the 27th Infantry Division to warn them to expect such an attack that night. At 0445 the next morning 2,500 ragged Japanese soldiers, short of weapons, ammunition and food surged down upon the 105th Infantry Regiment. Despite the warnings a gap of 500 yards separated two of the Regiment's battalions and it was here that the weight of the attack fell. In a fight only too reminiscent of Custer's Last Stand, a battalion commander was killed in his command post manning a .30 cal. machine-gun to the last. During this ordeal the regiment's third battalion posted nearby, stayed put and took no part in the fight. In the rear of the 105th Infantry the attack swept into the 3rd Battalion, 10th Marines. Here the marine gunners cut the fuzes down to muzzle burst and fired their 105s point blank into the enraged enemy. The attack finally ended in a hand-to-hand fight among the fox holes of the 10th Marines. The artillery battalion suffered the loss of 136 men including the commander, killed at his guns. The two army battalions suffered a loss of 668 casualties and were evacuated the next day.
Before the final banzai attack, General Saito, too ill to take part, gathered his staff for a farewell feast of sake and canned crab meat which ended with the General's ritual suicide. A day later in a cave not far from the scene of Saito's death, Admiral Nagumo, who had launched the attack on Pearl Harbor, took his life.
Although the island was declared secure on July 9th, some Japanese would hold out like shadows for months to come. The final mop up operations would see some of the most pathetic scenes of the Pacific War as Japanese civilians choose to leap to their deaths from the crags of Marpi Point rather than surrender to the Marines who were powerless to stop them.

Aftermath

Saipan cost the United States 16,525 casualties including 3,426 killed in action but it provided the first B-29 base in the Pacific. Japanese losses were over 29,000. A Japanese Admiral said, "Our war was lost with the loss of Saipan. I feel it was a decisive battle." General Holland Smith considered Saipan the decisive battle of the Pacific offensives.

Authors Note: The following l was sent to me by my darling half Uncle Ken Sanders in July of 2004. The son of (my grandfather) Cecil S Sanders from his first marriage, I first learned about Uncle Kens existance through the researching of my maternal Sanders family tree. I descend from Cecil S Sanders through his second marriage. Having had the chance to meet him was a blessing indeed. Alma aharings@cox.net

Uncle Ken shares about his background with me in his own words below:

First, after high school, I went to work for Sears Roebuck for a short while and then went to Hayes Aircraft which later became Hayes International Corp. Later, Hayes sold to another Company and became what is now Pemco Aeroplex.

I worked in many areas of this facility which is located adjacent to the Birmingham International Airport. This facility is huge and covers many acres. This plant performs many types of manufacturing of parts, rebuilding, overhauling and the overhaul and modifying of many types of Aircraft for the government and also commercial as well .

As this was not enough, I was elected Mayor in 1968 and re-elected six consecutive times for a total of 24 years. This had it's ups and downs, however, we did excell and had many good accomplishments for the good of our Town.

As all of this oviously did not satisfy my ego, I became a TV repairman during the tube type era and set up shop in Warrior with two dealerships, Admiral and Zenith and did very well until I finally realized that I had taken on too much, so I finally gave up the business.

And now being retired, I have a little wood work shop and I make lots of bird houses and bird feeders, etc. I'll try to send you a picture of this. Just something to keep me busy. Love, Unc. Ken

DON'T MESS AROUND WITH JACK OR HIS STETSON HAT
A story about Melvin J. (Jack) Sanders
Trafford Alabama abt 1925

3rd Child of William Lafayette Sanders

Jack was a very stylish dresser and was known for the beautiful Stetson hats he wore. The family as you already know grew up in Trafford, Alabama and one by one drifted away to make their own lives. It seemed that a couple of them (Jack and his little brother Cecil Sanders) would retreat back to Trafford when they got in over their heads. Trafford is a very small town and everyone knows everyone else and especially their business.

Seems there was a very large family who lived just a couple of houses away from the Sanders. There were twenty seven children (yes, 27 children) in the family and the older boys in the family were younger than Jack and Cecil by maybe a couple of years. They were bullies and made many a persons life miserable in that small town.

One day when Jack had returned to Trafford for a visit (Or hiding out) he dressed in his nice cloths and his Stetson hat and walked across the railroad to town and was standing at the south end of the depot. When three of the older boys from this family approached him looking for trouble. After a few words one grabbed Jacks Steson Hat and stomped in on the ground. Jack came out with a small knife he carried and slit all three of their throats.

The oldest died some time later but the other two survived. There was a murder warrant put out on Jack so that was his last visit to Trafford. This incident happened around 1925 I think. The story was told to me by some local townsfolk but my memory can't conjure up the exact date. Jack never returned to Alabama after that and when his mother died the family tried to sneak him in but the law was everywhere waiting for him to show up."

He never did.

<b> Authors Note Regarding the Birthplace of Milton Porter Sanders </b> I am certain that my great great grandfather Milton P. Sanders was born in Coffee County Tennessee on June 24, 1836 even after considering the following sworn statement Milton gave in 1906 to the contrary. This statement was taken from his TN Confederate Pension Application #S8583 and reads as follows : <I> "I was borned June 24th 1836 and as that date it was Franklin County Tennessee". </I> <BR>
Coffee County TN (formally known as Franklin Co. TN) was formed on Jan. 8th, 1836 from parts of Franklin, Warren, and Bedford Counties. After considering the above I concluded that Milton simply was not aware of the boundary changes which had taken place just a few short months prior to his birth. <BR> <a href="mailto: aharings@cox.net"> Email Alma </a> <BR>

<font color=blue size=+1> About Homecoming ' 86... History of The Elk River Valley (Pelham Valley) of Grundy County, TN </font> <BR>

This local history publication compiled by Arlene Partin Bean, Janelle Layne Coats was the re-telling of family history stories taken from interviews done in the Pelham Valley area of Grundy County Tennessee during the 1880s.

Given this one must realize that a fact or two may be misconstrued along the way, even so, there will be much more truth than fiction found within these oral histories.

Our early Sanders family ancestors arrived in the area known as present day Grundy County Tennessee shortly after the turn of the 19th century and became one of the first families to settle there. When my great great great grandfather Thomas Sanders Sr first arrived in the Pelham Valley along with the family of his paternal uncle, Solomon Sanders of Craven County North Carolina (1740-1837), the clan settled in the area known as Payne's Cove (abt 1805). The following sketch from Homecoming 86 offers a bit of early history surround the Cove as well as a Sanders family honorable mention:



: <BR>

<font color=blue size=+1> History of Paynes CoveTennessee</font> <BR>
Thomas Payne Sr and wife Yannaka Ayers owned land with their son, Poindexter Payne, in Franklin County, GA. They sold their land in 1822, and Poindexter moved to Pendleton County, SC. At some point between 1811 and 1820, he and his family migrated to Franklin County, TN. When the 1820 census was taken, Poindexter Payne was living in Franklin County, TN, and was reported to be over 45 years old. He had living with him: 3 males under 10, 1 male, age 16-18, 1male, age 18-28, 2 females under 10, 2 females, age 16-18, 1 female, age 26-45. The latter was wife, Annie Bell Hill. <BR>
Poindexter and Annie Bell settled in the protected reaches of what is now their namesake, Payne's Cove. According to oral history the first Payne settlement was right at the base of Spring Hollow, just northeast of Roberts' Cemetery. The old homestead was located by a spring which supplied water, and the nearby forest supplied game. <BR>
A grandson of Poindexter Payne gave his name to the ridge which separates Payne's Cove & Burrows' Coves. He was William Elson ?Bud? Payne who built a log house on the ridge and raised a family there with his wife Mary Angeline Meeks. Jerome Payne still talks of the peach orchard his daddy planted on the side of the mountain and of the good water which came from the spring on the ridge. Mary Elsie (Payne) Layne, Bud & Angie's daughter, related stories of the night hikes along a narrow path to church either at Bethel or Payne's Cove. There is no house on the ridge today, only the remains of an ancient rock chimney. Somewhere near the garden, now a mass of trees, are the graves of the twin girls, lost at birth, who would have been a part of this mountain family. <I>The Payne & Sanders families appear to have been contemporaries in the cove. Although neither family surname is now represented in Payne's Cove, there are many descendants. </I> <BR>

<b>Comments and Corrections Regarding the Above Inconsistancies </b> <BR>
<a href= "mailto:aharings@cox.net"> Have a Comment or Correction? Contact Alma</a> <BR>

1. In November of 1832 Solomon SANDERS aged 92 stated under oath that he had been born in Craven County, N.C., in 1740. He also said that the records of his birth had been lost many years prior. ( To my knowledge No record has been found to date that would show Solomon as an Irish Immigrant) <BR>
2. To my knowledge Solomon did not fight in the War of 1812 as suggested above but did serve two terms during the Revolutionary War. See Solomon's Webpage on this site. <BR>
3. [Solomon and his wife had 11 children] This statement was made with the assumption thatThomas Sanders Sr. was Solomons son. Thomas Sr was not Solomons son but rather the son of Solomons brother who died abt 1790-1972. Therefore Solomon Sanders was the paternal uncle of Thomas Sanders Sr..

The Civil War in Tennessee
Index http://www.researchonline.net/tncw/index/
Authors note: In many of the Civil War records a lot of so-called desertions will be noticed. True, there were desertions, but due consideration must be given to the fact that records were lost or captured, men scattered, or left on the battlefield killed, wounded or captured, and because they were not present to answer at roll call, were marked deserted. Neither did they have men or paper for such work.

The following letter was written by W.B. Pattie of Tracy City TN on 01 JUL1907 in support of his brother in arms and my great great grandfather, Milton Porter Sanders. His letter was addressed to the Board of Pension Examiners in Tracy City TN and reflected his opinion re: the denial of Miltons civil war pension application based on their charge of desertion. This letter also offers additional evidence that Milton P Sanders fought in the Battle of Fredricksburg in December of 1862.

Sanders in the battle of Fedrisburg VA & he was shocked by the explosion of shell in our ranks from which he was carried from the field. And I was with him in the battle of Chancerlsville when he received a wound in the hand and had to leave the field. I saw him when he received the shot in the head at Gettysburg. That was on the first day: how I come to see him fall was I was in the fricket line in front of the Regiment and happened to look back, as I did I saw him fall and slap his hand to his head and that was the last I saw of him during our march in Penn..

I never saw him refuse or make any excuses to keep out of a battle. He was always ready to do his part in camps or on the field. I cant say what time he left our command for I was a prisonor at the time. He told me he came in to Tenn and joined John P.Henley Command and I have never herd of any of the citizens in here when Capt Hinley would come in on a raid say aught a gainst M.P. Sanders and further I can say that to my best recolection he never was put into the guard house of put on extra duty.
