Generation No. 1

1. Joshua1 Inman (Source: (1) Gen Forum, The Joshua Inman to which you refer was married to Mary E. "Polly" Smith on March 12, 1825. Children were: (see list) . See the Inman Compendium Website by Jim Williams for details and more information. I have not yet made the connection of just who Joshua Inman's parents were at this time. Posted by Pat E-mail: garyjo@hotmail.com., (2) Haywood Co. Heritage NC Vol. 1, 1994, Article 537, In notes., (3) The Inman Compendium, //inman.surnameweb.org/index.htm.) was born 10 Jan 1805 in Newberry Co., SC (Source: Inman Compendium, Census records list birthdate as 1800.), and died 30 Dec 1872 in Haywood Co, NC (Source: History of the Inman Family, 11, Also on gravestone.). He married Mary E. "Polly" Smith (Source: Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.) 12 Mar 1825 in Haywood County, NC (Source: History of the Inman Family, 5, Marriage Bond was issued in Haywood County on March 12, 1825.). She was born 1807 in Haywood Co., NC (Source: Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.), and died 24 Jan 1880 in Haywood Co., NC (Source: (1) From tombstone in Bethel Cemetery., (2) Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.).

Notes for Joshua Inman:

Information handed down in the family says that the Inmans came to America from England in colonial times, and moved south from Maine. They brought with them the Universalist faith.

Joshua Inman came to Haywood County, NC, before 1825. He apparently was related to Amos Inman,

who came to the area from Newberry Co., SC between 1800 and 1810. It seems that Joshua was

either a son or a nephew of Amos. (from History of the Inman Family)

There are two Joshua Inmans listed in the Newberry, SC census.


1850 Census-Haywood Co., NC pg. 170 #550 listed as Joseph, b. 1800. Have also seen birthdate of 1805.

The name Joshua Inman appears in the census for the first time in 1860, although it is an established fact that he had been living in Haywood County since about 1825. This is proven by his marriage bond to Polly Smith, issued on March 12, 1825, a land deed recorded in March 1826, and his first child was born in Haywood Co. on February 15, 1826. Joshua and Polly were among the first settlers in the area on the west fork of the Pigeon River. They owned 200 acres by 1826, and another 100 acres by 1859.

Joshua listed in the Haywood County Poll Book, pp. 208-217 for August, 1835.

The original home was believed to be near the mouth of what is now known as Inman Branch. The land deed mentioned above in 1826 was made out to Joshua Inman for a tract of land on Ned's Branch, which is now Inman Branch. The land was bought from John Blount, the amount was 100 acres. On January 12, 1859, Robert Love sold Joshua Inman 100 acres on Flora's Branch for $100. This land now is known as Inman's Branch also.

The family was in the process of constructing a log cabin for Joshua and Mary around 1860 when the Civil War started. The log house was constructed from timber on their land. The timber was of excellent quality and furnished large logs for the two-room house. There was a chimney at each end and a partition of large hewed logs which cut the house into two rooms. During the construction, a large tree blew across the house and split several of the logs. Before the house was finished, the war started.

All six of Joshua's sons fought for the Confederacy. Only two of those boys survived the war, two died in Camp Douglas prison camp in Chicago. One war letter states that Hezekiah saw his brothers, Logan and Joe at Cumberland Gap; another battlefield letter one week later states that Hezekiah buried his brother Ervin that very day. (Ted Inman home interview, Aug. 6, 1976, in Waynesville, NC, from Haywood Co. Families, compiled by Alice R. Cook, Heritage Books, page 47-48.)

Abt.1825 Joshua settled on NC's Upper Pigeon River, his brothers settled in KY and SC. It is believed that Joshua and two brothers came from England.

About 1860, Joshua Inman and his boys began to erect a hewed log house of two rooms. Hezekiah Inman often pointed to a place near the old house where a deer was killed while the workmen were building the house. There was a chimney at each end and a partition of large hewed logs cut the house into two rooms. During construction a large tree blew across the house and split several of the logs. Before Joshua and his sons got the house completed in 1860-61, all six of his sons were called into service in the Confederate Army. (from the Inman Family in the Pigeon Valley by Thomas Erwin)

There is another Joseph Inman who married Narcissa Hill on 28 November 1836, which may get confused with this Joshua Inman. Joseph and Narcissa Inman lived near the present town of Clyde, NC.

Charles Frazier believed that if the two men were related, it was probably not a close relationship.

On March 20th, 1873, an inventory was taken of all the property found and sold on the premises of the late Joshua Inman. The sale had taken place on March 6, 1873. It was signed by J. A. Inman, Adm.

After Joshua's marriage to Mary Ann Smith on March 12, 1825, he was summoned to court in August of that year and was charged with being the father of an illegitimate child by Elizabeth Withers.

2. James Anderson2 Inman (Joshua1) (Source: US Gen Web Project, NC Marriages, Haywood Co..) was born 15 Feb 1826 in Newberry Co., SC (Source: Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.), and died 15 Aug 1913 in Haywood Co., NC (Source: Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.). He married Mary Elvira Kirby (Source: Kay Murphree.) 22 Feb 1843 in Haywood County, NC (Source: Marriage Info from USGenWeb, NC marriages.), daughter of Jonathan Plott and Elizabeth Harmon. She was born 20 Feb 1825 in NC, and died 25 May 1917 in Haywood Co., NC (Source: NC Death Collection 1908-2004.).

Notes for James Anderson Inman:

Anderson Inman started working for Jonathan Plott when he was about 17. He later married Jonathan's adopted daughter, Mary Kirby. He was 77 when he built Inman Chapel on land that belonged to him.

1850 Census Haywood Co., NC page 170 fam 540 looks like age is 21.

Anderson served in the Civil War when he was between 35 and 40 years old. He was ordained in the Universalist Church August 30, 1868, and is said to have ministered for 43 years. There are letters in the family which he wrote to his wife in July and August 1863 from Cumberland Gap, East TN. His tombstone in the Inman family cemetery has the letters CSA below his name. In a letter from Cumberland Gap July 29, 1863 he mentioned Logan and Joseph, his brothers, being on picket duty. In this letter he told about the food which the three of them had for a meal together. In this same letter, he mentioned being in charge of a group made up of William Massey, James Welch, Marian Stamey, William Garton and John Mason.

Anderson, brothers Logan and Joseph trained at Haynesville, TN, (now Johnson City), and were then sent to Cumberland Gap to guard the rr line coming into TN from VA. Their position was taken by Northern troops on September 09, 1863. They and about twelve hundred of their comrades were taken as prisoners of war to Camp Douglas at Chicago, IL, where Logan and Joseph died in 1864, probably of smallpox. They were buried there at Confederate Mound. Anderson Inman was held as a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas for nearly two years.

Anderson and his brother, Hezzie, were good carpenters and furniture makers. When they were middle-aged men they built a water-powered grain mill near the confluence of the Pigeon River and McClure's Creek for Anderson's son, Pingree. Pingree, who was named after Pingree Plott, son of Jonathan Plott, operated this mill with the help of his sons for fifty years or more, serving practically all of the families of the upper Pigeon Valley. Corn was the principal grain brought to the mill, but wheat and rye were also ground at times. The mill was built against the north side of a hill, and the only heat was provided by a rock and mud fireplace. In winter the inside of the mill was almost as cold as the outside, so those who brought grain to the mill during cold weather often would go over to "Uncle Pingree's" house nearby and wait by the fire until their "turn of corn" had been ground. (From History of the Inman Family by Charles O. Frazier)

Anderson was ordained through prayer and the laying on of hands on August 28, 1868 at a ford of the Pigeon River near the home of Jonathan Plott, located 1 1/2 miles "up the river" from Bethel. He was ordained and baptized by Mr. Plott.

From Ted Darrell Inman, quoted in Rob Neufeld's column in the Asheville Citizen-Times, Saturday, January 17, 2004:

When Inman's brother, Anderson Inman, was released from Camp Douglas, IL, the prisoner-of-war made an oath of allegiance to the Union, Ted Darrell says. He then worked as a cooper and contractor in Boston, where he was associated as a minister with Universalist Church headquarters. Returning home, he wore a Union uniform with 3,000 dollars in gold sewn into the lapels.

Notes for Mary Elvira Kirby:

Mary was 17 years old when she married Anderson Inman.

Mary was a granny woman, a midwife. She rode sidesaddle, English style, when she went on her rounds. She delivered over 100 babies, including most of her own grandchildren and some great-grandchildren. Beulah Inman Tyler was the last baby delievered by Mary, who was 82 at the time.

Anderson Inman, page 39, Taken from letters reprinted in "History of the Inman Family" by Charles O. Frazier. Anderson Inman received a letter from Ervin bearing the date July 15, 1863, stating that he and Pinkney and Hezzie were all right., (2) Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.).

The Roster of NC Troops does not mention the death of Ervin Inman. It states that he enlisted at age 23 on June 29, 1861, and that he was present or accounted for through February 1864. It also states that the NC Division of Archives and History has no further record of Ervin Inman. There is no doubt that Thomas Erwin's account is correct, however. We know that Ervin Inman did not reutrn from the war and that his wife, Vilinda, later married a man named Estrige. In 1880, at age 46, she had children named William Inman, Sallie Inman, and Addie Estrige, according to census records. (from History of the Inman Family, page 10)

Abt. 1856, NC (Source: 1860 US census for Haywood Co., NC.); d. Bet. 1860 - 1870, NC (Source: Margaret Mitchell, Educated guess, It is likely that Greenberry died before 1870 in NC.).

Notes for Greenberry L. Inman:

26. iii. Margaret E. Inman, b. Abt. 1860, NC.

7. William Pinkney2 Inman (Joshua1) (Source: Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.) was born 1840 in Haywood Co, NC (Source: Cheryl Inman Haney, My People: History of a Mountain Family, 2008.), and died 06 Feb 1865 in Big Stomp, Haywood Co., NC. He married Margaret Henson. She was born Aug 1834 in NC, and died Bet. 1900 - 1910.

Notes for William Pinkney Inman:

Pinkney Inman was the second youngest of Joshua's sons. After enlisting in Waynesville on June 29, 1861, at age 22, he served with distinction in Virginia. He was wounded at Malvern Hill, VA, on July 01, 1862. He returned to duty on July 15, 1862. On August 21, 1864, he was shot in the neck near Petersburg, VA, and was sent to a hospital in Raleigh, NC. On or about November 02, 1864, he deserted from the hospital and evidently returned to Haywood County. Even though WP deserted and returned to duty a number of times, he was a brave soldier who did not shy awy from battle, having been in several of the most fearsome battles of the Civil War.

Thomas Erwin, in a paper entitled "The Inman Family in Pigeon Valley", states that Pinkney Inman and his brother-in-law, John Swanger, were killed in a skirmish on the "Big Stomp", a mountain near Bethel, in 1864. Apparently they were killed by Confederate Army troops who were searching for Pinkney as a deserter. According to Mr. Erwin, Joshua Inman took the bodies of his son and John Swanger to his home on Inman Branch and later buried them at Bethel, although there are not graves in the cemetery at Bethel marked with their names. (from History of the Inman Family, by Charles O. Frazier, page 8)

The story told by Mary "Polly" Inman, wife of Anderson Inman and Pinkney Inman's sister-in-law, said that Pinkney as well as her husband and three other of the Inman brothers were all imprisoned at Camp Douglas, IL. (It is doubtful that Pinkney was at Camp Douglas) The men suffered greatly from starvation, disease, and freezing temperatures. One brother, Ervin, had already died in VA. Two more died at Camp Douglas, Daniel Logan and Joseph A. When given the opportunity to swear an oath of allegiance to the Union, the remaining three all agreed to do so. Pinkney and John Swanger, stationed there as well, having donned their Yankee uniforms, ran like foxes back home, crossing through TN on the way back. James Anderson and Lewis Hezekiah headed north to Boston to work as coopers and to study the Universalist religion.

Someone relayed the information to Joshua Inman that Pinkney and John Swanger had been shot by the Home Guard at Big Stomp Mountain. The ttwo young men lacked only four miles of their journey home when they were killed. Joshua took a horse- drawn sled and some sheets and a shovel to the spot near a large white oak tree with a nearby V-shaped rock. There he found the bodies. He wrapped them in the sheets, loaded them on the sled, and transported them to the crest of the hill at Bethel Cemetery behind Bethel Methodist Church. He spent "way into the night" digging the two graves, according to Polly Inman. Two rocks mark the spot where the men lie. Pinkney Inman was only twenty-four years old.

In another source, it was stated that Pinkney Inman had a daughter by Margaret Henson. The daughter's name was given as Willie Ida Inman, born August, 1864. Margaret was the daughter of Nathaniel Henson and his wife Catherine Pressley, who were married on November 04, 1824 in Haywood County. (Jane Lovingood has a list of descendants of Willie Ida Inman). Both Margaret and Ida are listed in the will of Joshua Inman as heirs to Pink Inman's shares.

In his Civil War Records, W. P. Inman is said to be 5 ft. 7 in. tall, with a fair complexion, and dark eyes and hair.

From My People: A History of a Mountain Family:

After leaving the confederate hospital in Raleigh, NC on or about Nov. 2, 1864, WP and his brother, Hezekiah, made their way to Knoxville, TN. There in Dec. 1864, they took the Oath of Allegiance to the US. The men were released to return home. Pinkney and Hezekiah had survived some of the meanest battles of the Civil War. According to his brother, Lewis Hezekiah, WP was killed on his way home from Knoxville, TN in a skirmish on Big Stomp Mountain in Haywood Co., NC. He was 25 years old.

Margaret Henson and Willie Ida continued to live with her parents. Nathaniel was the guardian listed for Willie Ida when her grandfather Joshua Inman's estate was settled.

8. Lewis Hezekiah2 Inman (Joshua1) was born 09 Feb 1841 in Haywood Co., NC (Source: Tombstone in Bethel Cemetery.), and died 08 Feb 1908 in Haywood Co., NC (Source: Tombstone in Bethel Cemetery.). He married Martha Ann Franklin (Source: History of the Inman Family.) 30 Apr 1858 in Haywood County, NC (Source: (1) Kay Murphree., (2) Roy and Carol Gibson, Carol stated that she had a certified marriage license for LH and Martha Inman with this date on it.), daughter of Lewis Franklin. She was born Abt. 1841 (Source: census records for 1870 and 1880, These records show her to be the same age as L. H.), and died Abt. Sep 1919.

(from History of the Inman Family, page 34 and 36)

Hezzie and Ervin Inman were together in Virginia. Thomas Erwin said that Ervin Inman was fatally wounded and was nursed by his brother Hezekiah until his death. Hezzie then made a wooden coffin and buried him in Virginia. "The Roster of North Carolina Troops, 1861-1865, Vol. VII, Infantry, does not mention the death of Ervin Inman. It states that he enlisted at age 23 on June 29, 1861, and that he was present or accounted for through February 1864. It also states that the North Carolina Divison of Archives and History has no further record of Ervin Inman. There is not doubt that Mr. Erwin's account is correct, however. We know that Ervin Inman did not return from the war and that his wife, Vilinda, later married a man named Estrige. In 1880, at age 46, she had children named William Inman, Sallie Inman, and Addie Estrige, according to census records. (from History of the Inman Family, page 11)

The "blow-up" at Petersburg, VA, referred to by Mr. Erwin as witnessed by Hezekiah Inman, was the Battle of the Petersburg Crater on July 30, 1864. Northern troops from PA had dug a tunnel underneath a Confederate earthworks fort near Cemetery Hill and loaded it with 8,000 lbs. of gunpowder. The charge was exploded before daylight on July 30, killing a number of southern troops and creating a craater thirty feet deep, sixty feet wide, and one hundred seventy ft. long. The Northern troops then attempted to advance through the crater and were caught in a defeat for the Union forces under the command of General Burnside. (from History of the Inman Family, page 11)

According to Howard Inman, Anderson and Hezekiah would stop when they met on the trail and discuss events of the day and catch up on the family news. Sometimes when one of the brothers was in a hurry to get someplace and saw his brother coming he'd hide in the bushes till his brother passed. Hezzie said time just got away from them when they met up on the trail.

It is believed that they settled first in Blooming Grove, Navarro Co., TX, later moving to the Indian Territory. While in OK they sold the land in NC. Later they returned to TX to live.

Hix Reece died in Bell County, TX, after returning from a visit to OK. His body was sent back to Corsicana, Navarro Co., TX, by train. His sons met the train and carried his body by wagon to the Pettie Chapel Cemetery where he was buried. The cemetery was located a few miles east of Corsicana at the time. Now it is within the city limits.

Have not been able to locate a tombstone. The death index number for the State of Texas is 18890.

Cheryl Haney has a letter written by Anderson Inman to his son Ballou while Ballou was in TX. He was telling of all the people that had moved to TX. He wrote, "Green Reece has moved to Texas. Julius, Virgil and Green are near Austin. And John V. is selling out to go to them. As you can see Texas is likely to have her share of North Carolina spacially (sic) the Reeces--James (that's John's Jim) went with Mr. Blanton to Texas."

In another letter he told Ballou that Maggie and Hix were living at the head of Little East Fork in a wigwam. The letter is dated May 15, 1883.

Hix may have been working a gold mine before the family left NC. Cheryl Inman Haney says that her brother, Darrell, b. 1936, remembers that as a small boy he saw one of Hix's sons who came back for a visit in the mountains. The son stopped by to visit with the Inmans and asked if he could buy a hammer and a chisel from them. Cheryl said at the time her dad only had one hammer and chisel, and he offerred to loan it. The visitor said he would not take the tools unless he left $5 with Ted Inman "in good faith". Two or three days later he returned the tools and remarked that "you know, Ted, I couldn't find any trace of that old gold mine that my daddy used to work before we moved to Texas." Darrell remembers this occasion because his dad put the $5 bill up in the cabinet and told his wife to be sure and return it when the tools were brought back. Supposedly this mine was on property that was or became government property and Hix could not sell or trade the gold in the mountains. When he moved he took it with him. Before the California gold rush, NC was the leading producer of gold in the US and had its own gold rush of sorts.

Joseph Pingree3 Inman (James Anderson2, Joshua1) (Source: History of the Inman Family.) was born 26 May 1851 in Haywood Co., NC, and died Oct 1935 in Lake Logan, Haywood Co., NC (Source: Inman Family History, page 42.). He married Susanna Earlie Franklin (Source: History of the Inman Family.) 28 Dec 1875 in Jackson Co., NC (Source: Marriage Bonds of Haywood and Jackson Co., NC.), daughter of David Franklin and Sarah Evans. She was born 16 Oct 1857 in Haywood Co., NC (Source: Death Certificate, place of birth is given .), and died 18 Oct 1923 in Lake Logan, Haywood Co., NC (Source: Death Certificate, #314 NC.).

Notes for Joseph Pingree Inman:

Pingree and Susan operated a grain mill, and a post office in the Pigeon River Valley. Susan was postmistress of the Lavinia post office until the town of Sunburst was built and a larger post office was established there. The Lavinia post office was in a little one-room building at the front gate to their home. When they built a new house a hundred yards down the road, the post office was located in one room of the new house.

About 1932, Pingree's house burned, destroying all his personal belongings. He and Ben's family rebuilt on the site during the next year.

Pingree Inman was named after Pingree Plott, son of Jonathan Plott. He had thirteen children, all of whom lived to adulthood. He was a prosperous farmer and a good manger. By middle age he had accumulated an estimated 500 to 600 acres of land which extended from the Pigeon river to the U. S. Government line on the Lickstone Bald. He operated a grain mill and had seven or eight tenant houses on his property. (from History of the Inman Family, page 47.)

From Jane Lovingood, vicvosnana@atmc.net, June 27, 2002

Claude Reece told Jane that Pingree was the most selfish man on the river. Times were hard on most people but the folks in the community would share their corn with the needy, especially the widow women with children. When they took their corn to Pingree's grist mill to get it ground he would take half of their meal because they had no money to pay him. This made a lot of people have ill will toward him and so a lot of jokes were told about his selfishness.

Notes for James Hosea Ballou Inman:

Ballou Inman and Victoria Deaver had the following children:

James Anderson Inman

Elsie Mae Inman

Theodore Bryson Inman

Willis Ted Inman

The children that Ballou Inman and Dawn Arrow had are as follows:

James Baxter Inman m. Mary Etta Sellers

Ann Inman m. Harley Chambers

Arrow Inman

From Haywood Co. Heritage, Vol 1, Story 537, by Doyle O. Inman

My grandparetns were Ballou Inman (1849/ 11-29-1926) and Dawn Arrow, a full-blooded Cherokee. They had three children: my father, (James Baxter), Ann, who later married Harley Chambers, and Arrow (b. Feb. 23, 1910, d. January 15, 1913). Ballou and Dawn Arrow escaped in the night after being warned her tribe was planning to kill him. Dawn Arrow died when Arrow was born. My father and Ann were raised by Aunt Emilia Singleton, and then later by my great-grandparents as Ballou was in Mexico. Ballou returned and married Victoria Deaver on June 26, 1900. Ballou, Dawn Arrow, and Arrow are buried in the Inman Chapel Cemetery.

From Marsha Childers:

When he was younger, Ballou had worked for several years for a railway company inn TN. He traveled extensively in the western US, maintaining and repairing equipment for the railroad. In his travels, he frequently selpt outdoors in a sleeping bag, and he once woke uip with a rattlesnake beside him.

Ballou and Victoria Deaver lived in the village of Retreat, between Bethel and Sunburst. Ballou was a blacksmith during his working years after returning from the western part of the country. He was a stout man and this served him well in his work. He also had spritual strength and was well versed in the scriptures.

In his later years, Ballou was afflicted with inflammatory arthritis and a leakage of the heart. He died from heart diesease on Nov. 22, 1926. A spider bite may have helped cause his death.

Hannah Jewett Powell (1866-194

I am the Rev. Hannah Jewett Powell. I was born in 1866 in a lumber camp in

Clinton, Maine. We were very poor, but I was determined to get an education and

become a minister. I managed to attend Colby College and the divinity school at

Tufts College and was ordained to the Universalist ministry in 1899 in Waterville,

Maine.

For the next 22 years I served a number of small parishes in Maine. Then, in 1912, I was appointed by the Women’s National Missionary Association to work in the mountains of North Carolina, in a place called Inman’s Chapel. It was isolated and beautiful, and the people were proud and a bit wary of strangers from “up north.”

But they were eager to have Universalism preached again in their small church, which James Anderson Inman had built in 1868 with his own hands. Though poor in material goods, they welcomed my ideas for night school classes for adults and an eight-week summer school. Within three years I had persuaded the Universalist women’s national organization that it would be a great blessing to have a real house near the chapel for our activities as well as a dwelling for the minister. And so we built Friendly House, a modern, seven-room bungalow with a large room over the garage for dances, socials, lectures, and even movies! We had classes in woodworking, sewing, weaving, health, and home care.

Friendly House became a true center of community with many people sharing their skills and helping with the upkeep. I found another source of help on my visits to Universalist churches in the eastern part of North Carolina. There were an unusually large number of young women who were school teachers— thanks in part to the advice of Aunt Julia Outlaw. I persuaded many of them to spend several weeks during their summer vacations in our beautiful mountain valley, helping with our summer programs.

In addition, we opened a dispensary in a quaint old log cabin up the hill from the house. It was equipped as a first aid station and there were regular visits by a registered nurse. And so we had the means to care for people, body, mind, and soul.

I have been richly blessed. I was fifty-five years old when I found my great challenge here in North Carolina, and I have had twenty fruitful years in this place.

Let me end with a story. When I first came here, “Uncle Ballou,” one of Father Inman’s sons, confronted me with a list of scriptural texts against women preaching. I sat down and made another list which at least evened things up. When Uncle Ballou came to die—though he had not been a follower—he said, “Turn my body over to the undertaker. The rest of me I leave to God and Miss Powell. She will know what to do with it.”

Narrator/Host: To Hannah Jewett Powell we say:

Response: Thank you for inspiring and empowering us to seek and follow our common call.

From Cheryl Inman Haney:

Willis Ted Inman always said that their mother was Amelia Singleton (Mealy). The Dawn Arrow story was told by James Baxter Inman and his descendants. In the Medford census books Dawn Arrow is listed as concubine of Ballou, and she is living in Swain Co., NC, and was from Jackson Co., NC.

From the book, My People History of a Mountain Family by Cheryl Inman Haney:

Ballou Inman had children with Amelia Singleton: Anne Elizabeth and James Baxter Inman. In the 1880 census Amelia was living with her children at her parents' house, William R. Singleton and Sarah Gordon Singleton.

Ballou also had children with Narcissa Prince: James Sylvester Prince and Betty Jean Prince. Betty Jean died as a child.

Notes for Victoria Ellen Deaver:

From Marsha Childers:

Many women were quiet and shy in that time, but not Victoria. She loved to talk, and never met a stranger. She was much friendlier than Ballous. She and her children would visit with relatives near Dix Creek and would visit all the kinfolks in that area while Ballou was busy with his job.

Victoria supplemented their income with chickens and lots of vegetables that she would sell in Sunburst.

Notes for Sarah Ann Massey:

In 1880, Sarah is married to John Jones, age 66. She has 3 children with him, and they have 4 servants living with them in Knox Co. TN, Dist. 14. John is a farmer.

Sarah M. Jones is recorded on the Knox Co., TN census for 1900. Her father, Tillitt Massey is living with her as well as a white servant girl. Also sons Charles M. D. Jones and Frank J. Jones are living in the household. The writing of the census is very blurry--looks like it has gotten wet. The occupations of Charles is unreadable, but Tillett Massey is listed as a carpenter. They are in Enumeration Dist. 86 on sheet #9, page 114B. On Ancestry it is image #18, Civil district 14.

Notes for John Arnold Jones:

Knox Co. Marriage Records show that John Jones married Viney Wilhite. Living next door to them was James Wilhite, 28, a lawyer and possibly brother of Viney and her sister Hannah.

John could not read or write, but owned thirteen hundred acres of land "south of the river" and owned and operated a ferry know as 'Middle" or "Jones" ferry that crossed the TN River landing on the north bank at the foot of State St. He also owned most of what now constitutes So. Knoxville from the river to Woodlawn Cemetery. John also owned a lumber yard located on State St. in East Knoxville. He donated land for Island Home Baptist Church and South Knoxville Vestile Methodist Church orginally called Jones Chapel.

Viney died sometime before 1875 and John married a second time though the name of his wife is unknown. There were no children by this marriage. He then married Sarah A. M. Massey when he was 61 and she was only 22. They had three children. It is said that there was so much difference in the ages of these children and the children by his first wife that these younger children called their older half brothers and sisters "Uncle and Aunt".

John died at his home near Knoxville. He was a farmer, a lifetimemember of the Baptist Church, and a kind and faithful husband and father. (from History of TN, Knox Co., page 1054)
