Which Haywood Co. surnames are you researching? Bradley, Morrow, Messer
Comments:
Have been unable to find out anything about my paternal grandmother. Have looked everywhere I can think but no luck. Her name was Nancy Ellen Bradley. Name appears in 1900 census of Haywood County. 3 children, Oscar, Bessie and Jeanne? My father, Elmer Morrow was born later that year (Sep), but ha a different surname than older siblings. No luck with finding his father. Nancy was born around 1854-56 and died in Rutherford County in 1907. Any ideas as to where else I might look.

He died in Gastonia, N.C.(23 November) If anyone has any info on Dock or George, that would really help out a lot. I am going to Haywood county either March 26, 2010 or the last week in April 2010 to search newspaper articles.

I have traced most of my family all the way back to the early 1800's. I have heard storys that my ggg grandfather, George Washington Messer (d.o.b.: 5 October 1839)was a murderer. His son Dock H. Messer disowned him because he beat his mother or step-mother to death. I have also heard storys about him killing other people. He died in Gastonia, N.C.(23 November) If anyone has any info on Dock or George, that would really help out a lot. I am going to Haywood county either March 26, 2010 or the last week in April 2010 to search newspaper articles.

Comments:
My great grandparents raised their children in NC near Mt Sterling. There are two specific things I would like to find out. Have any suggestions?
1. My great grandfather lived in Haywood County, Cataloochie. I have a couple tax receipts for property taxes paid in and around 1915. I know the place they lived is part of the Smokey Mountain National Park now but I was hoping to find where their property was in hopes of locating it and getting a couple of photos of that specific area.
2. My Greatgrandfather was in prison and I don't know if he was released before he died or if he died in prison. He lived in Haywood County as I said, but was in prison at Caledonia Prison Farm.
If you have any ideas about how I could gather this information I would really appreciate it.

You list most of my Ellis family.
Moody Rollins Ellis - 1804 and Nancy Dunaway Ellis - 1813
were my Great Great Grandparents.
I have a complete list of the children - 7 brothers and
4 daughters; which are on your list.
My Great Grandfather George Washington Ellis 1853 - 1942
wrote in 1935 a detailed account of his family.
Do not have a link back past Moody Rollins Ellis.
Will send you that history. Would hope to find ancestors of
Moody Rollins.

Comments:
My father is Joseph Harvey Jones, born 3/7/1945. His father was Ferman Lee Jones (possibly Furman?) and his mother was Lillian Moody Jones. I know that both of my grandparents as well as other members of the family (Aunts and Uncles I think, my records are packed up at the moment)are buried in Canton. My father told me that he and his parents lived in Waynesville during his early years before moving to Asheville. We visited the area in 2004 and since then I have been interested in the history of the family. I know that Jones is an extremely common name but I would be interested to know if there are any records of my grandparents and their ancestors. I'm afraid I don't even know how long they lived in Haywood County or if they were even born there. This is simply the starting place for my search. Thank You

I'm happy to have found this site! Hope to use it more.
I'm researching my ancestor Joseph Henry Collins, born 9 Mar 1817, married Sarah Sherrill abt 1843 in Hawyard, NC. Joseph Henry Collins died in the Sultana tragedy on the Mississipi River 27 April 1865. There is plenty to be found on his death, not so much on his birth. If anyone could provide his parentage or at least an accurate place of birth it would help me and my family greatly. Thank you!
