    1. [NCWARREN] How to find Smith Cr?
    2. Clarence McDaniel
    3. I have been writing a biography of William Paschal of the NC land grants forever it seems; always updating it. I have used google Maps; aerial view, of Warren Co but can not locate Smith Cr. There is a E-W baseline of 4,521 ft between Cabin Br and Smith Cr that i need to find on a modern map. I have a good 1874 map and others. Besides hopping a plane to get there(in AZ now) I don't know what to do. If someone who knows the area and can use google maps could guide me we might get it or some other way?

    1. [NCWARREN] Transylvania Company and Nutbush Creek
    2. 1774 Richard Henderson of Granville County in association with Nathaniel Hart, Thomas Hart, John Williams, William Johnson, and John Lutterell, on 27 Aug. 1774 organized the Louisa Company for the purpose of purchasing from the Cherokee Nation a large territory lying on the west side of the mountains on the Mississippi River. In the autumn of 1774, Nathaniel Hart, the chief negotiator, along with Richard Henderson, president of the company, visited the territory and met with the chiefs of the various tribes in the Cherokee country to discuss their interest in buying the land west of the Cumberland Mountains. Nathaniel Hart, Jr., wrote that his father returned to his home with six or eight of the principal men of the Cherokee Nation, who remained with him until the latter part of the year and assisted in the selection of a large supply of goods to be used in exchange for the land. By 1775 the enterprise had outgrown the Articles of Agreement of the Louisa Company. After a reorganization, a new company, called the Transylvania Company, was formed and Daniel Boone was hired to explore the territory. Soon Nathaniel Hart and Richard Henderson brought vast quantities of goods from Cross Creek (now Fayetteville) to Sycamore on the Watauga River near what is now Elizabethton, Tenn. The Watauga meeting, arranged by Hart, lasted twenty days and was attended by 500 to 1,000 Cherokee Indians along with their chiefs. The Transylvania Company was represented by Hart and his brother Thomas, Henderson, and John Williams. Negotiations broke down and the Indians left, but it is said that Nathaniel Hart overtook them the next day, persuaded them to return, and an agreement was reached. On 17 Mar. 1775, the conveyance or treaty was signed, by which the Transylvania Company acquired all of the territory from the Kentucky to the Cumberland rivers. Title to the land was taken in the name of Richard Henderson, Nathaniel Hart, and the other seven proprietors of the company as tenants in common. http://members.tripod.com/~labach/aclayanc.htm Leo.

    1. Re: [NCWARREN] Richard Henderson
    2. Deloris Williams
    3. Tony, Thank you for the notes and things, they are probably helpful to some who are doing research on these families. However, there were a lot of Richard Hendersons around in the 1700's, and I pretty much know what I need to identify Richard, b. 1735, the son of Samuel Henderson, both of whom were living in Granville Co.,NC. That was the famous Richard Henderson of Transylvania Company fame, who had bought land from the Cherokees in what was probably an intention to establish a new separate government since this was during the beginnings of the Revolutionary War; the land he and the Company had purchased was eventually taken away by the government and he was given 200,000 acres from which the State of Kentucky was formed. Richard then started selling off that land to settlers, and he travelled a great deal in his ventures, a part of which was as commissioner to extend the line between NC and VA into Powell's Valley, but he died in 1785, however, and any documents written after that time were those of one of the others with the same name. He did have a son by that name, as well as several cousins, and the name was prevalent in the HENDERSON family, making them easily confused with one another if one hasn't done much research on them. The controversy, however, is the mistaken research that some have done in identifying his father, Samuel, as the son of Richard Henderson, who died in Goochland, because I've seen lots of trees out there with that erroneous info. As I said previously, Samuel Henderson, d. 1783 Granville, was a fully grown married man with several children, including a son named Richard, (born in 1735), at the time of the 1748 death of Richard Henderson of Goochland, whose sons were minors. That Richard Henderson of Goochland, did have a son named Samuel, and he probably was in Granville at some time, but he was not of legal age at that time where he was living with his uncle, Nathaniel Henderson. That is my point.

    1. [NCWARREN] RIchard Henderson
    2. BELOW TAKEN FROM AUGUSTA CO JOHNSON ALLIED FAMILIES UNDER JOHN SEVIER FAMILIES( SEVIER is part of the John Dods of Tappahanna Land to Neck of Land Familes) In 1775 the Wataugans changed their name to "Washington District." The main settlements in the Washington District were Watauga, Carter's Valley, and Nolichucky. Early in 1775 runners were sent off to the Cherokee towns to summon the Indians to the treaty ground at the Sycamore Shoals of the Watauga; and Boone, after his return from a hunt in Kentucky in January, was summoned by Judge Henderson to aid in the negotiations preliminary to the actual treaty. The dominating figure in the remarkable assemblage at the treaty ground, consisting of twelve hundred Indians and several hundred whites, was Richard Henderson, "comely in person, of a benign and social disposition," with countenance betokening the man of strenuous action" noble forehead, prominent nose, projecting chin, firm-set jaw, with kindness and openness of expression." Gathered about him, picturesque in garb and striking in appearance, were many of the buckskin-clad leaders of the border--James Robertson, John Sevier, Isaac Shelby, William Bailey Smith, and their compeers--as well as his Carolina friends John Williams, Thomas and Nathaniel Hart, Nathaniel Henderson, Jesse Benton, and Valentine Searcy. Little was accomplished on the first day of the treaty (March 14th); but on the next day, the Cherokees offered to sell the section bargained for by Donelson acting as agent for Virginia in 1771. Although the Indians pointed out that Virginia had never paid the promised compensation of five hundred pounds and had therefore forfeited her rights, Henderson flatly refused to entertain the idea of purchasing territory to which Virginia had the prior claim. Angered by Henderson's refusal, The Dragging Canoe, leaping into the circle of the seated savages, made an impassioned speech touched with the romantic imagination peculiar to the American Indian. With pathetic eloquence he dwelt upon the insatiable land-greed of the white men, and predicted the extinction of his race if they committed the insensate folly of selling their beloved hunting-grounds. Roused to a high pitch of oratorical fervor, the savage with uplifted arm fiercely exhorted his people to resist further encroachments at all hazards--and left the treaty ground. This incident brought the conference to a startling and abrupt conclusion. On the following day, however, the savages proved more tractable,agreeing to sell the land as far as the Cumberland River. In order to secure the additional territory watered by the tributaries of the Cumberland, Henderson agreed to pay an additional sum of two thousand pounds. Upon this day there originated the ominous phrase descriptive of Kentucky when The Dragging Canoe, dramatically pointing toward the west, declared that a DARK Cloud hung over that land, which was known as the BLOODY GROUND. On the last day, March 17th, the negotiations were opened with the signing of the "Great Grant." The area purchased, some twenty millions of acres, included almost all the present state of Kentucky, and an immense tract in Tennessee, comprising all the territory watered by the Cumberland River and all its tributaries. For "two thousand weight of leather in goods" Henderson purchased "the lands lying down Holston and between the Watauga lease, Colonel Donelson's line and Powell's Mountain" as a pathway to Kentucky -the deed for which was known as the "Path Deed." By special arrangement, Carter's Valley in this tract went to Carter and Lucas; two days later, for two thousand pounds, Charles Robertson on behalf of the Watauga Association purchased a large tract in the valleys of the Holston, Watauga, and New Rivers; and eight days later Jacob Brown purchased two large areas, including the Nolichucky Valley. This historic treaty, which heralds the opening of the West, was conducted with absolute justice and fairness by Judge Henderson and his associates. No liquor was permitted at the treaty ground; and Thomas Price, the ablest of the Cherokee traders, deposed that "he at that time understood the Cherokee language, so as to comprehend everything which was said and to know that what was observed on either side was fairly and truly translated; that the Cherokees perfectly understood, what Lands were the subject of the Treaty . . . ." The amount paid by the Transylvania Company for the imperial domain was ten thousand pounds sterling, in money and in goods. http://www.webroots.org/library/usahist/tcotos04.html Children of JOANNAH GOAD and VALENTINE SEVIER are: i.

And when he comes to call thee, Arise and follow fast, His way may lie through darkness, But it leads to light at last.” OLD TIMES IN WARREN COLONEL JOHN LAUGHTER There are very few people now living who knew Colonel John Laughter.  Indeed, there are not many of the present generation who ever heard his name;  and yet there was a time when Colonel Laughter was one of our prominent citizens, and was well known throughout the county. It is remarkable how soon a man, even a prominent man is forgotten.  John R. Johnson died in 1889.  He had been a conspicuous figure in Warrenton for nearly fifty years, and yet very few of the present citizens of the town remember him.  The same is true of the late John White, Dr. R. D. Fleming, Capt. Dugger, Dr. Foote, Henry A. Foote, and host of others, who were the leading citizens of Warrenton when I came here thirty-one years ago.  Judge Walter A. Montgomery moved from Warrenton to Raleigh in 1891, and yet within the last year of one of our leading business men, who was raised here informed me that he had no recollection of Judge Montgomery.  Thus it always is.  We live, we pass on, and are forgotten.  There is comfort in the thought that, though we are forgotten by men, God keeps us in everlasting remembrance. John Laughter, the father of Colonel Laughter, came from England to this county in Colonial times, and settled in Bute County some time previous to the Revolutionary War.  He purchased a tract of land on Hawtree Creek, about five miles from the present town of Warrenton, where he raised his family; and where he died and was buried.  John Laughter, Sr. was a man of affairs.  He stood well in the county and left to his descendants the heritage of a good name.  He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and doubtless fought under Sumner at Guilford Court House and Eutaw Springs.  Being a “hatter” he was detailed to make hats for the soldiers.  This he would do, when conditions did not require his services in the field.  It is more than probable that the stories which he told his family of his stirring soldier life had much to do with the military trend of his son’s mind. John Laughter, Jr. was a soldier in the War of 1812.  He went out as captain of a company of dragoons, but was soon promoted and served until the close of the War as Colonel of the Second North Carolina Dragoons.  His regiment was stationed during the entire war in Norfolk, Va.  He had a high ideal of military life, and was a strict disciplinarian;  but he was kind to his men, and was a very popular officer.  As long as any of his men, in this section, lived they would frequently visit him to talk over their army life;  and he often visited them and was always a welcome guest in their homes. After the war, Colonel Laughter returned to Warren County, and, for many years, lived the life of a farmer.  He was also a surveyor, and was in great demand in surveying land in this and adjoining counties.  In the course of time, he met with reverses, lost his plantation, and gave up farming.  Subsequently he devoted himself to school teaching and surveying.  He had received the best educational advantages available in this section.  He was probably a student in the old academy in the first years of its existence, where he was instructed in the branches usually taught in such schools, at the time.  Either then, or later under a private tutor, he studied surveying, which was considered an exceedingly respectable and profitable profession.  The late James A. Egerton and other surveyors of the two past generations in this county were taught surveying by Colonel Laughter. Perhaps, as a teacher, Colonel Laughter most profoundly impressed himself upon the community in which he lived.  In his schools, he taught in addition to the usual branches, surveying and military tactics.  As a result, there were several good surveyors in Warren County, and the whole of the Hawtree section was fired with military enthusiasm.  This was, doubtless, the reason that the young men of that community hurried into the army, at the first call for men, at the beginning of the War Between the States. After the war of 1812, Colonel Laughter was, for many years, general of the militia of this district.  He insisted, however, on being addressed as Colonel instead of General; because as he said, he won the former title in actual warfare in the face of the enemy. When the Nat Turner insurrection spread terror throughout all this section of North Carolina and Virginia, Colonel Laughter led his command to the scene of conflict, and was present at the capture and execution of Turner.  His daughter, Mrs. Pegram, who died about seven year ago, at the ripe old age of ninety, informed me that she was about twelve years old when her father went to aid in quelling the Nat Turner insurrection.  When he returned, he brought with him blood curdling stories of the cruelties perpetrated upon the defenseless people by Turner and his band.  One of them was the murder of a school teacher and her pupils.  When the soldiers came upon this bloody scene, and saw the teacher and the children lying dead in their blood, they began at once to search for any that might have escaped.  After a while they found on the outside of the house, between the funnel of the chimney and the wall a little girl, who on the first alarm climbed to this safe retreat, and lay snugly hidden, crazed with fear, while the cruel negroes were murdering her teacher and schoolmates. It is a remarkable coincident that on the same plank road where Nat Turner devised his scheme for killing the whites, and liberating the slaves, General Grant matured his plans for the overthrow of the Confederacy and the liberation of the slaves.  Here is a fertile suggestion to any one that may be in search of material for a thrilling story. A former pupil and admirer of Colonel Laughter told me of his famous duel with a Mr. Andrews.  Andrews felt that Colonel Laughter had so deeply offended him that nothing but the blood of the old war horse of Hawtree could atone for the offense.  He, therefore, challenged the Colonial to mortal combat.  The challenge was promptly accepted, and the weapons and conditions of the duel were agreed upon.  They met at a picturesque place on the banks of the historic Hawtree.  News of the duel had gone abroad, and a large concourse of people assembled to witness the fight.  The Colonel and his second were the first on the ground.  After a time Andrews and his second were seen approaching.  When he saw the colonel waiting to receive him, in the attitude of a god of war, his heart failed him, and he cried out in terror;  “Don’t shoot, I’ll withdraw the challenge!”  The people shouted with laughter.  The Colonel kindly refrained from shooting, and the affairs passed off without bloodshed. Colonel Laughter was a proud man, and very ambitious.  He aspired to the best society for himself and family, and strove to maintain, under the adverse circumstances of later years, the same manner of living and social relations to which he had been accustomed in the more prosperous period of his life.  His fondness for fine clothing, made so as to set off his soldierly figure to the best advantage, resulted in part perhaps from his military life and training.  He was not only fond of fine clothing, but refused to purchase anything that was offered to him below what he regarded a respectable price.  A good story used to be told illustrative of this peculiarity.  He went to a store to purchase a vest pattern.  The clerk spread several before him, one of which pleased the would be purchaser.  He asked the price, and being told that it was only two dollars, he exclaimed in disgust: “ I come to buy a vest pattern, and you insult me be offering me this cheap stuff!  show me a vest pattern suitable for a gentleman to wear!”  The clerk quietly removed the offending goods and exhibited several other pieces. After a while be brought out the same pattern that had been so contemptously rejected, and said:  “Colonel here is a piece of goods for which we have no demand, on account of the price.  What do you think of it?”  The Colonel examined it for a moment with evident pleasure and inquired the price.  On being told that it was seven dollars and fifty cents, he promptly said:  “I will take it;  for I do not like to wear common goods.” Colonel John Laughter was a man of good physique, clear out feature and striking personality.  A stranger would recognize him at once as a man of more than ordinary importance.  His features indicated intellectuality, his voice, though commanding was exceedingly soft and musical.  His erect figure and soldierly movements marked him as one acquainted with military life and accustomed to the duties of a soldier. For more than fifty years the martial form of Colonel John Laughter has been wrapped in death’s dreamless sleep.  Most of his pupils have passed away, and none of his children remain;  but now and then I meet with one who when I ask: “Did you ever see Colonel Laughter?” replies with brightening face:  “Certainly, I knew Colonel Laughter.  Why he was my old teacher, and if you had met him you would have taken him for the president or some great general.  He was one of the most distinguished looking men that I ever saw”.
