James Hancher Summitt may have been named for the Reverend James Knicely Hancher.  His parents were pioneer members of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Monroe County, TN.  Transcribed records of St. Paul's Lutheran Church show that the Rev. Hancher preached at the church at least once a year from 1853-1859 (1859 was James Hancher Summitt's birth year).   Rev. Hancher's first wife, Amanda BUSHONG, was the Aunt by marriage of Laura Melvina WOLFORD.  When James Hancher Summitt was 3 years old in 1862, he was helping his older brothers as they chopped wood for their fire.  He was picking up the pieces of split wood after they were struck with the axe by the older boys.  He reached in just as one of them was swinging the axe and his left hand was cut off except for some skin just above the wrist.  The older boys mounted their horses to go into town to get the doctor.  On the way, they were intercepted by Confederate soldiers who confiscated their horses, and they were forced to make the remainder of the trip on foot.  When the doctor finally arrived, he was only able to sew up the remaining stub.  When he later became a schoolteacher and minister, he held the book from which he was reading in the crook of his remaining left arm.  He is said to have been able to perform most daily activities except he could not tie his necktie alone.

      12.  Dr. James Monroe CARDEN, born 23 Jan 1852 in Grainger (now Union) Co, TN; died 08 Dec 1904 in Knoxville Hospital, Knoxville, Knox Co, TN.  He was the son of 24. Goldman Benton CARDEN and 25. Rosannah MONROE.  He married 13. Martha Elizabeth CARNS 20 Mar 1870 in Anderson Co, TN, by Joseph F. Chapman.

      13.  Martha Elizabeth CARNS, born 17 Feb 1851 in Graveston, TN; died 14 Jan 1903 in Anderson Co, TN.  She was the daughter of 26. William Carroll "Buck" CARNS and 27. Mary Martha ADKINS.

 

Notes for Dr. James Monroe CARDEN:

      J. M. Carden was born in Union County, Tenn., January 23, 1852.  His parents were Goldman B. and Rosa (Monroe) Carden, the former a native of North Carolina of English stock and the latter of Tennessee of German origin.  Our  subject had the meager advantage of country education, but while working on the farm he so persisted to study, even by the light of the fireside, that when he reached his majority he was prepared to teach.  His first school was in 1872, but he continued in that work until 1878, studying medicine in the meantime.  He now continued studying medicine, and during 1879-80 he attended lectures at the medical department of the University of Tennessee at Nashville.  He practiced from 1880 to 1886, when he became the Republican nominee for State senator, for the Fifth District, and was elected in the fall of the same year.  He became a member of the State Senate in January, 1887, and spend his leisure hours in lecture attendance at the University of Tennessee, and finished the course he had begun in 1879, and received his diploma, and now is in the practice of his profession.  In 1870, he married Martha E. Carns, a daughter of Capt. W. C. and Mary (Adkins) Carns.  Their children were Annie C., U. S. G., Ina E. (deceased), W. A. Wheeler, Robert L., and Susan Vestal.  Our subject, his wife and eldest daughter are members of the Missionary Baptist Church, he joining in 1869.  He is a self-made man of considerable promise, who has never had any of the advantages of wealth, but has made good use of the spurs of poverty.

Notes for Robert Lee Carden:

Tennessee the Volunteer State 1769–1923: Volume 3

ROBERT LEE CARDEN.

 

One of the estimable citizens of Knoxville is Robert Lee Carden, president of the Knoxville board of education and active in the conduct of an insurance business. A native of this state, he was born at Pioneer, Campbell county, on the 29th of January, 1882. His father, Dr. James M. Carden, was born in Anderson county, Tennessee, in 1852. He received his medical training at the University of Tennessee and was engaged in the practice of his chosen profession until his demise in 1906. He was a skilled surgeon, standing high in the ranks of the foremost members of his profession, and he was retained as surgeon for many railroad companies throughout Tennessee.  Aside from his profession Dr. Carden was active in public life, was a stanch republican, and was state senator from Knox and Anderson counties, 1886-1888. His father, the grandfather of Robert Lee, was Goldman Carden, who came to Tennessee from North Carolina when a young unmarried man. In 1870 occurred the marriage of Dr. Carden to Miss Elizabeth Carnes, whose demise occurred in 1903. She was born in Anderson county, a daughter of Captain William C. Carnes, who commanded Company C, Third Tennessee Regiment, Union army in the Civil war. He was wounded at Mill Springs, Kentucky, and the close of the war found him a prisoner in Andersonville prison. Shortly after his release he died, his wounds and imprisonment having left him in a weakened condition, from which he was unable to recover. Prior to the outbreak of the war he was one of the prominent farmers of Anderson county. Among the many family keepsakes the Cardens had a small pocket testament which was owned by General Zollicoffer, who met death in the battle of Mill Springs. The Bible was marked by the fatal bullet hole and was treasured by the family until it was destroyed in a fire which burned the Carden home.

ROBERT LEE CARDEN.

page 172

Robert Lee Carden received his early education in the public schools of Andersonville and was graduated from the Big Valley Academy at Andersonville, in 1897. He [p.172] then enrolled in the University of Tennessee, completing his course of instruction in that institution in the required time. For six or eight years after putting his textbooks aside he was a traveling salesman out of Chattanooga, for patent medicines, and he then went to Lafollette, where he established an insurance agency. He left Lafollette in 1913, having been appointed deputy insurance commissioner of Tennessee and in 1914 he came to Knoxville, where he resumed the insurance business. He was active in this connection until January of the year 1921, when he was made insurance commissioner of Tennessee, receiving his appointment through Governor Taylor. He resigned that office in July of the same year and he has since been well known in insurance circles. He is general agent for East Tennessee of the Southern Surety Company and district manager of the Fidelity Mutual Life Insurance Company. He is one of the most prominent and dependable insurance men in the state and enjoys an extensive business. Aside from the insurance business he is a director in the Inter-State Loan & Finance Corporation of Knoxville.

ROBERT LEE CARDEN.

 

On the 26th of February, 1903, was celebrated the marriage of Mr. Carden to Miss Maude Brooks of Coal Creek, a daughter of Abner Brooks, a native of Anderson county, who was store manager for the Coal Creek Coal Company for a period covering some thirty years. To the union of Mr. and Mrs. Carden two daughters have been born: Bobby Brooks and Barbara Lou. The eldest child is a student in the high school, while the youngest is attending the grade schools.

 

Tennessee the Volunteer State 1769–1923: Volume 3

 

Since attaining his majority Mr. Carden has given his political endorsement to the republican party and the principles for which it stands and he has always been active in party councils, although he has never sought nor desired public preferment. He is a stanch advocate of education, realizing that a good education is the basis of business success, and in 1921 he was elected president of the local school board, his term to expire in 1922. His religious faith is that of the Presbyterian church and he and his family attend the Fourth Presbyterian church of Knoxville. Fraternally he is a Mason, holding membership in Lafollette Lodge, No. 659; Coal Creek Chapter, Royal Arch Masons; and Cypress Commandery, Knights Templars. He is active in every movement for the development and improvement of Knoxville as a member of the Board of Commerce and he is likewise identified with the Business Men's Club. Socially he holds membership in the Cumberland Club and the Whittle Springs Golf and Country Club. For some time he has been a leader in the affairs of the Kiwanis Club and was its secretary in 1920. Mr. Carden finds recreation in the great outdoors and he is especially fond of fishing and golfing, and is greatly interested in football, rarely missing a game during the season. Upon the entrance of the United States into the World war Mr. Carden was quick to put personal interests aside and he gave generously of his time and money in the furtherance of the government's interests.

      Hon. J. A. Brown, the subject of our sketch, was born in Anderson County, Tenn., June 20, 1842.  His father was William Brown, of Kentucky.  His mother was Malinda Overton, of Tennessee.  The father was of Scotch descent, the mother of Dutch.  About the year 1828, the father immigrated to the State of Tennessee, and here married the mother of our subject.  Unto the marriage were born seven sons and two daughters.  Our subject is the fifth of these children.  He was reared on the farm, an, in the main, farming has been his occupation throughout life.  He was educated in the country schools, and though his school days ended leaving him possessed of a limited education, he has applied himself to individual study, and has acquired considerable learning.  When the civil war broke out, his patriotic spirit promped him to the defense of his country, and at the age of twenty years he enlisted in the United States army in Company B, Third Tennessee Infantry.  he served throughout the war as a private; was in many of the hottest contests of the struggle, was in the battle of Nashville, and in the Georgia campaign.  At the close of the war he went to Indiana and Illinois, and farmed for nearly three years.  In the year of 1868, he returned to his native State, and was united in marriage with Miss Talitha Duncan, daughter of Alfred Duncan.  Two sons and three daughters have blessed the marriage.  Their names are William A., Edgar, Ida F., Lelia G. and Sarah (actually Sally).  Since Mr. Brown's return to Tennessee, he has followed farming a portion of the time; first suspending farm work in 1878, in which year he was elected register for the county of Anderson.  As register he served four years, and then was elected sheriff of his county in which office he served the constitutional period, and then returned to farming.  In 1886, he was elected representative for the counties of Anderson and Morgan.  His whole life has been an example of toil and perseverance.  He commenced without capital, and besides being successful in his pursuit for the necessaries of life, he has filled many positions of trust and honor.  He is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, and is an ardent Republican.(Goodspeed's History of Tennessee, 1887)

Notes for Daniel SUMMIT:

1830 Census, Jefferson County, TN, p. 331

Dan'l SUMMITT       2  0  1  1  0  1 - 2  2  1  1  0  1  (2 males 0-5, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 15-20, 1 male 30-40, 2 females 0-5, 2 females 5-10, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 15-20, 1 female 30-40)

 

In Monroe County, Tennessee  (by Paul C. Summitt, Feb. 1999 on "Daniel Summitt")

It would, therefore, appear that Daniel and Sarah probably moved to Jefferson County, Tennessee in mid-1822 to join the Francis Moser family "South of the French Broad River on the waters of Muddy Creek" and did not move to Monroe County until perhaps as late as the mid-1830s, with marriages of his children in Monroe County records beginning in April 1838 shortly before Daniel's death. An educated guess might have Daniel and family moving to Monroe County in 1834 the year following his last appearance on the Jefferson County tax list. This scenario discredits the idea that these early German Lutheran families first came to Tennessee to exploit the expulsion of the Indians in Southeast Tennessee and explains the unexpected absence of so-called Hiawassee grants of land to these pioneers in former Cherokee territory.

 

At any rate, when they moved to Monroe County, Daniel and his family settled on land in the Vonore area and were affiliated with the nearby St. Paul Lutheran Church which was established probably around 1825 to serve families in the Island Creek, Bat Creek, and Fork Creek areas of Monroe County.  The first record on St. Paul is a grant deed in 1825 in which the County Commissions deeded four acres of land to the Lutheran Society, specifically to the trustees for the Lutherans, Abraham Buch (Buck) and Adam Mowry. While Lutheran congregations were generally dedicated record keepers, no records for St. Paul are known to exist for the period from its founding until around the later 1840s.  Some of the early families instrumental in the formation of St. Paul are thought to have been the Clemmers, Vinsants, Brakebills, Girdners, Sheets, Mowrys, Summits, Mosers, Gastons, Bogards, Boyds, Bucks, Kyles, Cooks, Davises, and Michaels. The first church of logs was built by the congregation on the Southwest corner of the four acres just to the west of the still existing old cemetery.  Tradition has it that this church was 40 x 60 feet, with dirt floors, walls of large tulip poplar logs, and a hand-split cedar shingle roof. It is not known when the intersecting roads at the corner of the property at the location of the church and cemetery acquired the names of Brakebill Road and Summit Road. Summit road (note the one "t") acquired its name apparently because it led from the old St. Paul Lutheran church to the farm of Eusebius Summitt, eldest son of Daniel, land later inherited by his son, Martin Luther Summitt. The road still goes by that name.

 

By the time St. Paul Lutheran was organized, there were about fifteen Lutheran Churches in Northeast Tennessee--all North and East of Monroe County. It is thought that several of the Virginia and North Carolina pastors took turns servicing St. Paul, with Adam Miller, Daniel Moser, possibly Daniel Summit, Philip and David Henkel, Robert J. Miller, David Gould and others assisting until Jacob Shaffer became the permanent minister about 1840.  This author's guess is that Daniel Summit did not have any role in the early operation of St. Paul Lutheran since he did not move to the area until the mid-1830s some seven years after the Mosers and other Lutheran families settled in Monroe County.  Eusebius Summitt was in fact to become one of the long term faithful leaders of this church--but that is another story.

 

Daniel died September 30, 1838 at age 43.  Sarah is listed in the 1840 Federal census for Monroe County, Tennessee, as a head of household consisting of 3 males 5 to 10 years old (presumably Daniel, Peter, and John); 1 male 10 to 15 years old (Francis); 2 females 10 to 15 years old (Susanna and Elizabeth); 1 female 20 to 30 years old (Lydia, the only unmarried daughter in this age range); and 1 female 40 to 50 years old (Sarah).  She is again listed in the l850 Federal census for Monroe County as a 54 year old female head of household with a 17 year old Peter Summit listed as a male farmer age 17.  It is a mystery to this author what ever happened to Daniel and John.  Sarah died June 30, 1856.

 

Both Daniel and Sarah are buried in the Old St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery with still legible tombstones with the last name spelled "Summit". The tombstones for Daniel and Sarah were made by Luther Blackman and John Moser in the tombstone trade in Monroe County using marble mined between Loudon and Madisonville. The entries in the Luther Blackman's Inscription Book show "Daniel Summit Born Apr 5 1795 Died Sept 30 1838.  Stone 4 ft 6 in long 13 in wide delivrd at Shop Price 15.00" and "Sarah wife of Danl Summit Born May 24 1796 Died June 30 1856.  Stone 4 ft 6 in Long 13 in wide delivrd at Shop Price 15.00". [Information supplied by Janelle Swearingen, Tulsa, Oklahoma]

 

There is no record of an administration of the estate of Daniel Summit.  Eusebius was the administrator of Sarah's estate in 1856. Her personal property was inventoried and sold, with buyers including Eusebius Summit, Joseph Summit, Peter Summit, Francis Summit, John Moser, David Lowry, Peter Moser, and Francis Moser.

Following is an abstract, written by Thomas M. Boyd, of probate records found at the courthouse in Madisonville, Monroe Co., TN:

 

ABSTRACT OF COURT RECORDS REGARDING SETTLEMENT OF ESTATE OF JEREMIAH BOYD Beginning December, 1869 Monroe County, Tennessee

 

Sons of Jeremiah Boyd deceased. December 6, 1869 Jeremiah Boyd, Darius E. Boyd, citizens of Monroe County, David L. Boyd, a citizen of McMinn County, Joseph A. Boyd a citizen of the State of Arkansas. Daughters of Jeremiah Boyd deceased. Sarah Summit and Husband Eusebius Summit, citizens of Monroe County and Mary A. Endsley a citizen of the State of Arkansas, Complainants.

 

Vs.

 

Sons of Jeremiah Boyd deceased. Andrew Boyd and Martin Boyd, citizens of the State of Illinois, Widow and daughter of Jeremiah Boyd deceased. Susannah Boyd and Martha Boyd, citizens of Monroe County. Children and heirs at law of John K. Boyd deceased who was a son of Jeremiah Boyd deceased. Mary A. Pullen, Susan C. Boyd, Sarah F. Boyd, John W. Boyd, Phillip M. Boyd, Martha E. Boyd, Wilber B. Boyd, Abraham W. Boyd, and Alis(Alice) M. Boyd, citizens of Bradley County, the last six of whom are minors and have no regular guardian.

 

Note: the districts referred to here are districts named as the government acquired them from the Cherokee indians. Jeremiah almost certainly obtained his land through land grants. Jeremiah Boyd died intestate, owning two tracts of land:

 

* 160 acres(quarter section) in Hiwasse District on which Jeremiah lived at the time of his death(later referred to as his "home farm") * 160 acres(quarter section) in Ocoee District(later referred to as his "mountain tract")

 

Jeremiah's personal assets were ample to satisfy all outstanding liabilities so it will not be necessary to sell any portion of the land for the payment of debts.

 

Complainants requested that the land be sold and proceeds divided rather than divide the land among the heirs.

 

May 9, 1870 Susannah's answer to the bill filed on Dec. 6, 1869: She agreed to her dower interest in the land being included in the sale of the land provied she receive a reasonable portion of the proceeds.

 

June 9, 1870 States that defendants Andrew Boyd and Martin Boyd failed to appear and make defense to the bill(above). Judge orders that the bill be set for hearing ex parte and orders the following to be reported at the next term of the court:

 

1st, whether the lands are susceptable to advantageous partition 2nd, whether it is manifestly in the best interest of all to sell the dower interest of Susannah with the land 3rd, what would be a reasonable amount to allow Susannah in lieu of dower 4th, what would be a fair price for the tracts of land

 

November 24, 1870 Interrogatories of witnesses regarding the questions of June 9, 1870... witnesses stated that: * A fair price for the home farm is $750 * The dower portion should be $50(1/15th) * A fair price for the mountain tract is $60 * The dower portion should be $4(1/15th)

 

December, 1870The results of the interrogatories above reported to the court.

 

May, 1871Judge orders that after 30 days notice by advertisement at 5 public places in Monroe County, sale of the land shall proceed at public sale at the courthouse door in Madisonville, to the highest and best bidder. The action will be reported in the next term of the court.

 

June 27, 1871Announcement of Chancery Sale and terms of the sale.

 

November, 1871The home farm was sold to John Cline for $751. The mountain tract failed to sell for the minimum price of $60, as set by the court.

 

March, 1872Judge ordered that the mountain tract be sold for whatever it would bring.

 

June, 1872Report to the court that the the mountain tract was sold, at public sale per terms of the court, to Jeremiah Boyd(Jr.) for $1.

Notes for Henry Clay Slover:

H.C. Slover is a native of Anderson County, Tenn., and was born September 16, 1844. He is the son of Aaron and Nancy (Burton) Slover. The father was born in Anderson County, Tenn., November 1809, and was the son of Aaron Slover, a native of Virginia, and one of the pioneers of Anderson County, of which he served as trustee for about twenty years. The father was a farmer by vocation, and died October 10, 1886. The mother was born in Virginia in April, 1813, and was the daughter of John Burton, a native of Virginia, who moved to Anderson County about 1815, where he died in 1850. She died in 1863. Both parents were members of the Methodist Church. Our subject was reared on the farm where his father was born, and acquired his early education at home. In August, 1862, he enlisted in Company C of the Second Federal Regiment of Tennessee Infantry, and November 6, 1863, was captured at Rogersville, Tenn. He was confined in prison at Belle Isle, Andersonville, Charleston and Florence, being exchanged from the latter place after thirteen months and ten days' imprisonment, from which his health suffered greatly and his constitution was undermined. He was mustered out of service at Knoxville, Tenn., May 27, 1865, and returned to his parents. He attended school next, but after several months his health became so poor he was compelled to leave the school permanently. He has served as constable, school commission and deputy sheriff of Anderson County, and in 1880 enumerated the census of his (5th) district. He was elected clerk of the circuit court in 1882, and re-elected in 1886, filling the same with credit, and is one of the leading citizens of Clinton. He is a member of W.C. Carnes' Post, G. A. R., and of the Baptist Church. He was married in August, 1867, to Matilda A. Carden, who was born in Union County, Tenn., May 8, 1839, and is the daughter of Goldman and Rosa (Monroe) Carden, of Union County. To this union six children have been born, two of which are deceased. The mother is also a member of the Baptist Church.

Notes for Martha A. Brown:

I transcribed the following text from another transcription that I found with two pages on letter paper that I believe was in my grandmother Julia Sollars’ handwriting.  The typed transcription had some additional notes, either from my mother or from her sister Edith.

           Ray Hutchins Brundige, Jr. 29 Aug 2005

OBITUARY – Clipping from an Indiana newspaper (do not have particular name of newspaper or date of publication).

Martha Brown Foster was born near Clinton Tennessee in Anderson County.  She departed this life December 24, 1917, aged 82, 10 months, and 18 days. Her early life was spent in Tennessee.  About 1854, she was married to Enoch Foster, and to this union was born eleven children, six of whom yet survive:  Harvey Foster on the home farm, Cates, Indiana; Sarah E. Hambright of Pine Village, Indiana; Scott Foster of Morencie, Michigan; Cassandra White of Danville, Illinois and Wiley Foster of Boswell, Indiana. The deceased members are Elbert S. Foster, who died at the age of 25, in 1877;  Mary M. Witsman, who died October 14, 1883;  Charles Foster, who died in childhood; Rosetta Foster, who died February 10, 1889. In the year 1866, the family moved to Indiana and have made this their permanent home.  They bore the hardships of the early pioneers and toiled and sacrificed until they secured a home, having lived in the present location for over forty years.  The father, Enoch Foster, departed this life February 16, 1886, leaving the mother to care for the children, this responsibility being undertaken with a characteristic of the women of her generation.   We of the present generation would do well to stop and study the sterling character and worth of these pioneer mothers who are so rapidly passing away.  Grandma Foster was a sympathetic, tender, loving companion, a true wife and devoted mother, not only to her own children, but to her grandchildren, as well, and of these, there were 32 and sixteen great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.  She was never too tired to care for any or all of these relatives, as well as to sacrifice for friends and neighbors.  She united with the Baptist Church in childhood and believed in a life hidden with Christ in God.

<end of clipping>

She was married at 16 to a man who had six children by his first wife.

She also smoked a corn cob pipe.

Martha Brown Foster was the mother of Mary Malinda Foster Witsman, who was the mother of Mae Witsman Crothers who was the mother of Julia Crothers Sollars.

The clipping did not list six children living – only five – Julia Crothers thinks the other one may have been John Foster.  It also listed only four deceased.  (From Ray Brundige <brundige@iglou.com>)

 

From her death certificate:

b. 3 Feb 1835, TN; father William Brown, b. TN; mother unknown.

Name of husband: Enoch Foster

d. 24 Dec 1917, Fulton Township, Fountain County, IN of heart lesion,               contributory cause rheumatism; age 92 years, 10 months, 21 days.

Buried on Harvey Foster farm, 25 Dec 1917.

Witness John Foster.

Note the death certificate’s birth date calculated from the given age and date of death does not agree with the stated birth date.  The calculated value is 3 Feb 1825.

The calculated value from the obituary (below) is 6 Feb 1835.  Census information gives her age in 1870 as 35, so 1835 is probably the correct year.  I have confirmed the writing for the various dates on the original records, so the discrepancy remains.  (From Ray Brundige)

 

Notes for William Enoch Foster:

Burial: Farm near Cates, Fountain Co, IN

Individual Note: Probably the Enoch FOSTER of IN mentioned in Joseph Abraham BROWN's Civil War pension file affidavit

Occupation: Farmer

From his death certificate:

v      b. not stated, but age at death given as 65; hence born about 1821

v      d. 16 Feb 1886, Fulton Township, Fountain County, IN, of consumption.

v      Burial details not stated.

 

From an index to Tennessee marriages:

Enoch Foster married Martha Jane Overton on 22 Feb 1840 in Anderson County, TN

 

From the 1850 census for Subdivision 16, Anderson County, TN:

Enoch Foster, age 30, head of household, born in Tennessee

Martha, age 27, born in Tennessee

William, age 9, born in Tennessee

Angelina, age 6, born in Tennessee

James, age 4, born in Tennessee

Matthew, age 2, born in Tennessee

Rufus, age 6/12, born in Tennessee

 

From the 1870 census for Fulton Township, Fountain County, IN:

Enoch Foster, age 49, head of household, born in Tennessee

Martha, age 35, born in Tennessee

Rufus, age 20, born in Tennessee

Martha J, age 18, born in Tennessee

John B, age 14, born in Tennessee

Elbert, age 13, born in Tennessee

Mary M, age 11, born in Tennessee

Harvey, age 7, born in Tennessee

Sarah E, age 5, born in Tennessee (listed as Sarah in 1870 and Emma in 1880)

Milburn, age 4, born in Tennessee

Scott, age 1, born in Indiana

Rosetta, age 3/12, born in Indiana

 

Both Rufus and Enoch had aged approximately twenty years, but Martha had only aged seven years in the twenty-year interval.  Of course, the original Martha (Overton) had died, some time after the birth of her last child, Martha J, who was born around 1852.  The new Martha (Brown) had married Enoch and had started bearing his children.  The 1880 census added two more:  Cassandra, born around 1872, and Wiley, born around 1876.

 

So by the time of the 1880 census we have the six children from a previous wife:  William, Angelina, James, Matthew, Rufus, and Martha J;  Enoch and Martha Brown’s children mentioned in the obituary; and the missing children noted by the transcriber.  The children from the obituary were: Elbert S, Mary M,  Charles, and Rosetta, who died before Martha; and Harvey, Sarah Emma, Scott, Cassandra, and Wiley.  The two missing children noted by the transcriber are therefore John and Milburn.  Since John Foster was the witness on the death certificate, we assume Milburn was the missing child who died before Martha.

 

At least one other Enoch Foster was in Fountain County about the same time as the Marthas’ Enoch.  The WPA index has an Enoch Foster marrying a Nancy Allen in Fountain County on 22 May, 1853;  and an Enoch Foster is buried in Crowder Cemetery, with an inscription giving the date of death as Sept. 15, 1858, aged 27, 1 mo., and 14 days.  My guess is that he could be the father of the Nancy M. Foster born in May of 1859 who married Stephen Crowder.  Also an Enoch H. Foster married a Mary Gaskill in Warren County, just north of Fountain County, in 1846;  and an Enoch W. Foster married a Mary McDade in Benton County, just north of Warren, in 1862.

Notes for Ephraim H. T. Brown:

In the 1870 census for Anderson County, TN, Foster BROWN, age 25, born TN is living next door to Malinda BROWN and Elender BROWN.  He is married to Sarah A., 23, with son, John B. age 2.  That suggests that Ephraim H. T.(or perhaps H. F.) is the same person as Foster BROWN.  There is no Ephraim BROWN in MO in the 1870 census.  Foster BROWN testified 22 Apr 1870 in Anderson County, TN, in the suit over William BROWN's estate.  In one question, he was asked about something that might have occurred before his father died, so he was obviously William BROWN's son.  My file shows that Ephraim/Foster died bef. 1876 in MO, but I do not remember the source of that information.  If so, he must have moved to MO after 1870.

Notes for Judge William Richard Hicks:

1887 "History of TN; East TN" by Goodspeed (FHL book 976.8 H2ha Vol.2; SLC 9/7-8/1984; have copy all pages) (Pg.1113)

William R. Hicks, the subject of this sketch, is judge of the Second Judicial Circuit of Tennessee, and is one of the leading lawyers of Anderson County. He was born in Knox County, Tenn., December 16, 1842, and is the son of John H. and Elizabeth (Dail) Hicks. The father is a native of Tennessee, and was born in 1820. He is the son of Richard N. Hicks, who settled in the Sequatchie Valley at an early date. When a boy, our subject's father removed to Anderson County, and then to Knox, and later returned to Anderson COunty, where he has since resided, and followed farming. He was elected county trustee, in November 1872, and held that office for fourteen years in succession. The mother was born in Anderson County, in 1817, and is the daughter of William Dail, native of North Carolina. Our subject was reared on the farm, and attended the neighborhood schools. August 7, 1861, he enlisted in Company C, of the Second Federal Regiment Tennessee Infantry. He was captured at Rodgerville, Tenn., November 6, 1863, and confined in Confederate prisons, at Belle Isle, Libby and Andersonville, and September 9 1864, was removed to Charleston, SC, and finally discharged in the following December. While en route to Charleston he made his escape from the cars at Augusta, Ga., but, after walking sixty miles, was picked up by Confederate patrols and carried to prison again. He was mustered out of service, at Knoxville, in February 1865, and returned to his home in Anderson County. For a year following the war he farmed, and then decided to improve his education, and entered school at Bushy Fork. For a year he attended school at different places, and then began teaching. On March 19 1868 (his wedding day), he borrowed a copy of Blackstone, and began to read law. He was admitted to the bar, in 1872, and at once began practicing in Clinton, and continued until August 1886, when he was elected judge of the Second Judicial Circuit. He was married March 19, 1868, to Mary L Duncan, who was born June 6, 1816, daughter of Alfred Duncan, of Anderson County. To this union eight children have been born, four of whom are dead. Our subject and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. On March 3, 1881, Judge Hicks met with a railroad accident, near Clinton, by which he lost his right arm.

The inscription on his tombstone reads:

HIR LIGT BEGRABEN FRANTSS SAMMET ER IST GEBOHREN IM JAHR 1741 IM HORNUNG UND IST GESTORBEN DEN 27 HORNUNG ANNO 1818; TRANSLATED AS:  " HERE LIES BURIED FRANTSS SAMMET.  HE WAS BORN IN THE YEAR 1741 IN FEBRUARY AND HE DIED ON 27 FEBRUARY IN THE YEAR 1818".

B (with a tale) is SS

 

At his death he owned 625 acres of land and personal property worth about $ 1,795.00 a weathy man of his time.  There is no evidence that he ever owned any slaves.

 

Christian served as the Administrator of Francis' estate as the widow elected not to serve and obtained 250 acres of land as settlement.  Three other brothers-Francis Jr., Daniel and John divided the rest.  The five married daughters, their husbands and Jacob Summitt sold their interest in the land to the four brothers.  Henry Summitt took his inheritance out of the personal property of the estate and it is believed that Betsy, unmarried did also.  Information compiled by Paul Summitt.

Children of Francis SUMMIT and Dolly ABERNATHY are:

                    i.   Christian Summit, born 30 May 1769 in Lincoln (formerly Tyron) Co , NC; died 18 Apr 1865 in Stinesville, Monroe, IN; married (1) Catherine Link 06 Apr 1802; born Bef. 1770; died Oct 1802 in Lincoln Co., (Tyron Co.), NC; married (2) Elizabeth Masters 09 Jun 1803 in Lincoln Co, NC; born 17 Jan 1781 in NC; died 14 Mar 1845 in Beanblossom Twp, Monroe Co, IN; married (3) Hannah Cornwell 12 Apr 1846 in IN; born 09 May 1801 in KY; died 20 Aug 1870.

 

Notes for Christian Summit:

Christian sold his land in Lincoln Co. NC in 1827 and bought land in Monroe Co. IN  December 3th 1827.  He is listed in the NC census 1820 and as a residence of Monroe Co. IN in the 1830 Census.

 

It is stated that the Summitts, Stines and Grounds came to Indiana abt 1827 and founded the St. John Luthern Church ( same name as church in NC ,) services were held in the homes.  The first bldg was built about 1835 on land provided by Christian for the sum of $ 4 and 371/2 cents .  It was a two story log church with weather board siding.  It had a unique semi-circular arrangement on both  the first and second levels to permit speaking to both levels from a central location in the long south wall.  Apparently controversy within the community resulted in a severed connection with the Lutheran Church in the early 1900's and became known as the Old Dutch Church reflecting the German community making up the membership and it is noted the Church shall never have connections to organized Religions.  The stone foundation of the orginal building still stands.

 

Lavina is his daughter by first marriage to Catherine Link, believed to have died in child birth.

      34.  Francis M. MOSER I, born 15 Mar 1763 in Monocacy, Frederick Co, MD; died 22 Oct 1836 in Monroe County, TN.  He was the son of 68. Leonard MOSER and 69. Maria Sarah BENKELE.  He married 35. Elizabeth MILLER Abt. 1790.

      35.  Elizabeth MILLER, born Abt. 1765 in Graceham, Frederick, Maryland; died Abt. 1816.  She was the daughter of 70. Johan MILLER and 71. Eva DOE.

 

Notes for Francis M. MOSER I:

Francis Moser was born in Monocacy, MD in 1763.  In 1779 he was residing in Surry Co, NC, and volunteered in the Revolutionary War.  In 1782 he marched with General Washington across the Potomac and was a witness to the surrender of Cornwallis.  Francis was in the Battle of Camden.  When a friend, Jacob Spoontower, was unable to serve in the war, Francis volunteered in his place.  He also served in the Maryland Militia a few months.  From Monroe County Heritage Book, p. 337.

 

In the Rev. War pension application of Francis Mosier (Moser) filed on 20 Sep 1820 from Monroe Co. TN he stated after the Rev. War, he lived in Frederick Co. MD for 3 years. He then returned to Surry Co. NC for 2 years where he had enlisted in the NC Line, moved to Lincoln Co. NC for 30 years, moved to Greene Co. TN for 1 year, moved to Jefferson Co. TN for 10 years and in 1830 he moved to Monroe Co. TN. He said he was born in Frederick Co. MD in 1763 and married Polly Sipes in 1820. His widow also filed an application in 1853 and indicated he died in 1836 in Monroe Co. TN.  From this info I have been able to trace this Francis Moser back to the Leonard Moser family at Graceham MD where the birth of him and his five brothers and one sister are recorded at Graceham Moravian Church. The widow of his older brother Michael also filed a pension application from Stokes Co. NC in 1839 and provided info on Michael and Samuel who served in the MD line and Henry who were the sons of Leonard Moser of Frederick Co. MD. From the Graceham records are the dates of birth: Michael b. Ag 1, 1759, Samuel b. Ap 11, 1761, Francis b. Mr 15, 1763, Christian b. Ja 5, 1765, Anna Eliz. b. Ja 30, 1767, Henry b. Se 12, 1769 and Joseph b. Jl 21, 1772. The communion records at St. James Church have Fransz Moser next to Peter Moser on Sept. 1816 which fits into the time line from the application if the end of the war is 1781. The communion records also have a Frank Mohser and wife on April 1818. This fits if the end of the war is taken as 1783 which is more likely since it fits closer to the date of movement to Jefferson Co. TN in 1820. Also in the records are Peter Moser and w. Magdalena (1813 to 1820), Johannes Moser and wife Barbara (1816 to 1820), Wilhelm Moser (1818 communion), Jacob Moser (1818 communion) and Elisabetha Moser (1814 member). Are these children of Francis Moser? There records of birth are probably in Lincoln Co. NC where Francis lived prior to coming to TN. Has anyone checked this out?

 

A history of the Leonard Moser family appears in "Monocacy and Catoctin" vol.III by C.E. Schildknecht p.64-65. He arrived in Philadelphia on the ship Adventure in 1732 and settled in N. Maryland.

Notes for Margaret M. LYERLY:

CONRAD’S WIFE:  (No marriage record, time or place, to 2006)

Conrad Keicher’s will says “MY WIFE, MARGARET”.  We know nothing more about his wife (or if he was married before) until they are in Tennessee.  Donna and I believe that she was the daughter of Johann Christopher Layrle.  The name in Rowan Co. today is spelled Lyerly.  The will of Christopher Layrle names three daughters, Margaret, Barbara and Catherine.  The Lyerly Family History knows nothing more about MARGARET.  Her sister, Barbara, married Rev. Adolphus Nussman as his second wife about 1779.  Sister Catherine married Frederick Grimminger in 1882. 

 

The following abstracts are from books of researchers using the spelling as they deciphered from the original records.  A different person may spell it another way in their abstracts.  After some of your own study of the people in Rowan and Cabarrus Counties, you will know who these people are and their true German spelling.

 

Here are the clues for making the assumption that Margaret Keicher was a Layrle: 

6 May 1786 - The will of Christopher Lyardly is proved by George Henry Berger, Michael Brown & Conrod Kyger -- Exrs: Conrad Keiker & Frederick Grimmace.

 

2 May 1786”Admistration on the estate of Frederick Griminger deed, issued to John Rantkeman and Conrod Kyger…….

 

19 Jan 1895 Cabarrus Co., NC.  The last will and testament of Adolph Nussman deceased was proved in open court by Oath of Niclaus Ridenhour, as Evidence thereto.  The Executor of the Said will to Wit:  Robert Linn & Conrad Kucher   (Nussman was the minister at Buffaloe Church; St John’s today in Cabarrus Co. just below Rowan Co.)

 

20 April 1895.  Ordered by the court that Paul Nussman an Orphan of the said Rev’d Adolph Nussman be bound to Conrad Kuiker a Blacksmith for and during the term of three years to learn the art and Mystery of a Blacksmith; the said Master obliging himself to pay unto the said apprentice the Sum of ten pounds and a set of Smith tools fit to Shoe a horse.  Paul Nussman was the stepson of Barbara Layrle Nussman.  (A child whose father died was called an orphan and was warded out to learn a trade or homemaking; males to age 21 and girls to age 18)

 

14 Aug 1797 Rowan Co:  Jacob Lyerly, (brother of Margaret), signed as a witness to the deed when Conrad sold to Christian Kiker.  (This is when Conrad Keicher moved to TN)

                viii.   Barbara Keicher, born 07 Oct 1794; died 12 Jan 1870; married James Chandler.

 

Notes for Barbara Keicher:

Barbara and James named a son John Kiker Chandler born 1817.  The Chandlers moved on to Sevier Co., TN.  (From Keicher-Kiker-Kyker Family Newsletter #17, July 2006, p.3)

 

                  ix.   Peter Keicher, born 25 Nov 1797 in Washington Co, TN; died Aft. 1860; married Elizabeth Peters.

 

Notes for Peter Keicher:

He is listed with the notes in Conrad’s will but he and family seemed to disappear.  I do not see him on the Emmanuel Lutheran Church records.  Peter married Elizabeth Peters in Greene Co. 5 Feb 1824 at St. James Lutheran Church.  This is about the same time that brother, John, moves to Greene Co. 

  About the only Greene Co., record is a 1849 deed where he is listed as a guardian for 6 Keicher children in the sale of land that probably was his father in law’s estate.  Elizabeth died in 1841 in IN.

(From Keicher-Kiker-Kyker Family Newsletter #17, July 2006, p. 3)

 

Peter moved to IN in the 1830s.  His son, David, went to Springdale, AR.

      41.  Catherine SMITH, born 1772 in PA; died 24 Sep 1836 in Sullivan Co, TN.

 

Notes for George Conrad WOLFORD:

George was the son of Conrad a vet of the Amer Rev from PA & MD. When Conrad died his son George became the ward of J. Frederick Woolford, potter,  of Woodstock, Shenandoah Co, Virginia who m 1st (I think most likely in Lichtenau, Germany) Elizabeth, m 2nd Mrs Catherine Lieb of PA. The proof of this is in the court records for that county. They are on the Shenandoah Co Genweb page.  Nancy J. Silkey personal communication.

Notes for Jacob DROKE, Jr.:

      "Jacob Droke, Jr., built the log cabin home for his family in 1796.  He and the family were log cabin builders, farmers, and German carpentry artisans.  The cabin (1996) today is in excellent condition.

      Jacob Droke, Jr., was responsible for the Droke Schoolhouse which later became known as the Cold Springs County School.  The Morrell's Mill known today was the former Droke Mill.  Also, Jacob, in that period, operated a store in the now vicinity of Silvicola.

      More is known on the mill than the school or store.  The mill was located on Ready Creek.  Tradition has it that his operation was in the Muddy Creek area.  Blountville was in the Muddy Creek area  and likely was the trading center for Jacob's business dealings."
