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

first of three white men to settle Brasstown Valley

The Solemon Baptist Church, located on a hillside above the Oconaluftee River, we find reference to Adam Corn first child of John Peter. The year was 1806, when folks living in a virgin wilderness met from time to time in different homes in this small settlement; they had no church and no preacher, but they had their God. Then in the year 1806, and at the home of Dr. John Mingus, whose ancestor Jacob had carved out a homestead three miles down the way (1790) the group felt lit was time to have a Church, where-in they could have their mid-week prayer meetings as well as full church services. The organizing body consisted of 23 people, and included two Missi onary Baptist preachers- Adam Corn and Davis Elders. Of one will take time to look at the dates of both Adams's birth (1783) and the location of the rest of the family(back in Wilkes Co., NC) one can see the distance this young Man, now age about 23, traveled for the work of the Lord. One man in the Oconaluftee River section offered to donate a plot of land for the school and churc h on the banks of the river near

Bradley Fork at what is now known as Smokemont. It is well to note that they outgrew the log church, it was torn down and a frame building put up. Later in the 1930's the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was established and the remaining descendants of those earlier Pioneers had to move out. As sometimes happens the Church was properly deeded over to the Park Service with the agreement it would be leased back to them, for a period of two years .
