John and Mary moved from Baltimore to Tennessee in 1791. John was one of the first magistrates appointed for Washington County, TN by Governor Sevier in 1796.

John's obituary appeared in the September 26, 1826 edition of the "Knoxville Enquirer" and read as follows:

Departed this life on 8/30 (1826) after illness of several months, John Norwood Esq. in the 67 year of his age. Formerly resident of Washington County, for many years now of Blount County, where he ended his pilgrimage. Was an acceptable member of the Methodist Church for 49 years; die strong and joyful confidence in hope of an immortal life. Was a soldier of the Revolutionary War.

(Transciptions of both of these documents were found in the Will E. Parham Papers at the McClung Collection, Lawson McGhee Library, Knoxville, Tennessee.)

Norwood Inn

The Norwood Inn was built in 1820, styled in a type of architecture popular in the early 1800's, a large two story main part and an ell of one story flanked by porches. It was a pretentious building in its day, containing in the original structure eight rooms.

The Inn was located on the Niles Ferry Road (old) then called the Federal Road and was about 14 miles from Maryville, 14 from Madisonville and 14 from Loudon. Many stages passed the Inn, stopping for a change of horses, or overnight rest depending upon the time of day and the stage coach schedule. The Inn was built by John Norwood, who had been an Innkeeper in Maryville, following his service as a soldier of the Revolutionary War.

The original Inn had two identical entrances and ten windows on the front elevation, each window contained 15 panes. The two doors led to large rooms which had huge fireplaces and high mantles.

An interesting architectural fact is that the wall between the rooms was made of brick and then plastered while the outside walls of the house were constructed

of hand hewn weather-board. The two main rooms, heated by huge fireplaces had between them a small tap room for the weary traveller to have his night cap or hot rum, or stronger drink.

Back of the reception rooms was an enormous dining room, 30 feet in length. To the right of this was another dining room with an open fireplace and built in cupboards on either side. Back of these dining rooms was an attached kitchen. The 30-foot room was referred to as the summer dining room because it did not have a fireplace and was only used in cold weather if the Inn had an 'overflow' crowd.

There are faded old records in Blount County's Courthouse which showed

that John Norwood purchased in 1819, the furniture for this Inn. He bought 14 beds, ten bureaus (chest of drawers) and ten tables, according to court records. Of course, much other furniture was added and much of it still remains in the families of descendents of the Norwoods.

In 1826, John Norwood died and his son John Norwood the third, bought

the interests of the other heirs and operated the Inn until his death in 1840. At this time, John's brother Wesley, bought the Inn and established himself and his family as owners and keepers of the Norwood Inn. He bought more land and more slaves. The original Inn was now too small for the amount of business it had and so Wesley Norwood added three more large rooms. These were a continuation of the front and in line with the original rooms. These added rooms each had an outside entrance, and the front of the Inn now had five front doors.

The Inn prospered until the coming of the War Between the States. War put an end to travel, raiders and bushwhackers took their toll from the massive operation of the Inn and the surrounding acreage. After the war, the railroads put an end to the need of Inns along the routes of Stage Coach travel.

The site is now marked on the New Niles Ferry Highway by a Tennessee

Historical Commission marker. (Note from tpd= Due to road construction

the marker has been taken down. I need to write about when it will be put up again.)

(There is an ink drawing of the Inn with the article. The caption reads:

The late E. A.Nichols made this beautiful drawing of the Norwood Inn in

1939 from the structure and also many pictures of it. The picture is so

accurate that the count of bricks in chimney is correct.) (Note from

tpd = I have found the drawings of the building as of April 2001.)

February 31, 1962, page 7, "Tizzy's Corner")

This below may answer the question of how he got his name.

Ignatius Wilson Norwood son of John Norwood

Wonder if it leads to the possibility of a further earlier familial relationship between the families of Norwood and Wilson.

This also makes you wonder about Wilkerson/Wilkinson and John below.

Thomas Wilkerson Norwood

Roane County Chancery Book:1824≠1845

Nelson WRIGHT of Blount County, Tenn. 1824. Robert McTEER sold land 114 acres in Blount to William SHERRILL 1821. SHERRILL was engaged in trading and driving horses. James and Ignatious WILSON, brothers, were merchants in Blount County 1821. John WILKINSON was a lawyer there. A short time afterwards. William SHERRILL left the county with a drove of horses for North Carolina and had never returned. Ignatious WILSON died in Jun 1823 leaving as heirs, three minor children, James, Mary and Richard I. WILSON.

A trust deed made by William SHERRILL and Robert McTEER to the WILSONS was witnessed by Tarnes CONNOR, Uriah SHERRILL, John NORWOOD and Zekiah BARNARD, dated 30 Jan 1821. James HENRY and Jesse KERR were also mentioned. Thomas WILSON was witness to William SHERRILL'S note. 1825, Nelson WRIGHT was said to have gone to Georgetown in South Carolina, where William SHERRILL resided. In 1827 the sherriff of Monroe County

said Robert McTEER was not a resident of this state. June Term

1828. pp 410-437

Notes for SARAH M. CROUCH:

Crouch Surname History:

The name Couch or Crouch, history says, comes from the Cross or Crucifix, which stood by the wayside: a family living near one of the crosses was called "Man by the Cross" or Crouch. The monks or friars had their cloaks embroidered with many crosses, "Crouchs" they called it: an old will left by one of the Couch family who first came to America had a [mystic, rustic] cross engraved on it, proving the name.

======

Still haven't found anything on a marriage location on a Sarah Crouch marriage to John. I did find a John Norwood married a Mary ? on June 21, 1823.

I have always thought she was a daughter or main line relative of the Crouch family in Washington Co, TN where John (the father) was a magistrate. It would have been a correct timeframe for this location to be the place of the marriage but keep being told that the Marys in this timeframe married other persons by Crouch researchers?

Sarah may always be a mystery unless someone comes up with a heretofore unknown Norwood or Crouch bible record.

 

Children of JOHN NORWOOD and SARAH CROUCH are:

i. NANCY H.3 NORWOOD, b. February 13, 1805, TN; m. JAMES P. HAMILTON, October 03, 1854, Knox Co, TN; b. Bet. 1815 - 1817, TN.

3. GEORGE2 NORWOOD (JOHN1) was born January 21, 1789 in Baltimore Co, MD, and died March 08, 1880 in Indianapolis, IN (Marion Co). He married MARY ANN VAN PELT ROOKER July 21, 1812 in Blount Co, TN. She was born February 20, 1793 in Greene Co, TN, and died February 23, 1877 in Indianapolis, IN (Marion Co).

Notes for GEORGE NORWOOD:

Moved to Washington Co, TN in 1791.

George and Mary moved to Wayne Co, IN where the town of Milton now stands, in 1819, and on March 22, 1822 moved to Indianapolis, then consisting of a few log cabins.

George Norwood was by trade a wagon maker, his first shop being located in West Maryland Street and the next one on the S. E. corner of the State House Square. He had leased these eight acres for pasture and garden and his cabin was about where the south wing of the State House now stands. When this ground was needed for the new State House, he gave up his lease for "$300.00, buying the ground where the Wm. H. Block Store now stands for $300.00 and a fip". He later bought the N.E. corner of Illinois and Washington Streets for $300.00 and erected his wagon shop there. He was elected councilman several times, in 1846 City Treasurer and in 1850 he retired from active life, enjoying excellent health til a period just previous to his death which occurred at the home of his grandson, John L. Norwood, N.E. corner Broadway and Vine St. on March 8, 1880. He was a member of the first Board of Trustees of Meridian Street Church and his wife was one of the charter members of that church. She died in her home on N. Illinois Street, Indianapolis, February 23, 1877, and was buried at Crown Hill. There were ten children.

History of Indianapolis and Marion Co, IN by B. R. Sulgrove Philadelphia I. H. Everts & Co. 1884 pg 442

GEORGE NORWOOD, one of the oldest citizens of Indianapolis, was born Jan. 21, 1789, in the city of Baltimore, and in 1793 removed to Washington County, East Tenn. In 1819 he became a resident of Wayne County, Ind., and on the 22d of March, 1822, Indianapolis, which at that early day embraced but a few straggling cabins, became his home. Mr. Norwood was by trade a wagon-marker, and for a number of years conducted his business on the present site of the office occupied by his grandson, Frank Bird. He some years previous to his death divided his considerable estate between his children, retaining for himself only a house and lot on Illinois Street. He was married in 1812 to Miss Mary Ann Rooker, who died Feb. 28, 1877, in her eighty-fourth year, having enjoyed sixty-five years of married life. Their surviving children are Washington, Norwood, Ana Maria (Mrs. Abram Bird), and E. F. Norwood. Mr. Norwood was in his religious predilections a Methodist, and the first trustee of the first Methodist Episcopal Church of Indianapolis. He on successive occasion filled the office of Councilman, and in 1846 was elected city treasurer. He enjoyed a reputation for strict integrity and scrupulous honesty, and was firm in his convictions, especially in discussions involving a question of right and wrong. Having acquired a competency, Mr. Norwood, retired from business in 1850, and during the remainder of his life enjoyed excellent health until a short period before his death, which occurred March 8, 1880, in his ninety -second year.

EARLY KNOX COUNTY CHURCHES

Goodspeedís History of Tennessee (1887)

METHODIST:

In 1815 John HENNINGER was assigned to the Knoxville Circuit. He was succeeded by Nicholas NORWOOD in 1816, Josiah B. DAUGHTRY in 1817, and George ATKIN in 1818. The next year Knoxville was made a station and Knox Circuit, to which Robert HOOPER was assigned, was formed. Meanwhile several new churches had been organized in Knox County.

====

Nicholas and Mary lived in Knox County eight miles north of Knoxville, TN, until they moved to Indiana in 1834. They settled on a farm seven miles south of Indianalis, Nicholas farming during the week and preaching on Sunday. He died at thei rhome on S.

Rachel Meek Norwood had been ill for some time and was taken to the home of her daughter, Mary Featherstone, on Massachussetts Avenue, where she died. Both died before 1853, but the exact dates are unknown and both were buried in the old ;part of Round Top Cemetery near Southport, IN, where the lot is surrounded by an iron railing. There were nine children.

According to Goodspeed's History of White Co, TN, the Sperry family was in this area from an early date.

Probably the first mill in the county was the waterpower corn-mill erected on Caney Fork River, in the Thirteenth District, by Wm. Scarborough, in about 1810 or 1812. Wm. Glenn erected a similar mill on the Calf Killer in about 1815, and Thomas Simpson one on the same stream four miles below Sparta, at about the same time. From that date up to about 1820, mills were erected by Samuel Denton, six miles from Sparta, on the Calf Killer, Thomas Sperry and Jacob A. Lane on Town Creek, Wm. Basson on Caney Fork, Clark Swindler, Sr., on Cedar

Creek, T. B. Rice and J.W. Taylor, on the Calf Killer, all of which were corn-mills, and were operated by water power.

First District: C. L Sperry's corn-mill; Pearson & Co.'s steam saw-mill; Williams & Co.'s steam planing and grist-mill; S. D. Wallace's steam saw and planing-mill and O.F. Young's saw, corn and wheat-mills, on Calf Killer; M.J. Clark's, Matthias Anderson's, and A. L. Potts' flour, corn and sawmills on Town Creek.

The first mercantile establishment in Sparta was opened in 1809 by Keys & Clemmon. Other early merchants and tradesmen, from that time up to about 1820, were Wm. Glenn, Jesse Lincoln (cousin to President Lincoln), Fletcher & Lumpton, Jubal Hancock, T. B. Rice, and Simpson & Allen; W. C. Brittan operated a large hattery, working from six to eight hands; Thomas Sperry and Wm. Musgrove and Nathan Starkley were tailors; Wm. Mitchell, Nat Davis and Wm. Glenn were the tavern-keepers; Joseph Copher and Wm. Burton were the blacksmiths, and Wm. Anderson operated an extensive tanyard, the first sunk in the town or county.

Between 1850 and 1860: Leftwick & Dibrell, Snodgrass Bros., T. L. Sperry, W. M. Young, S. & H. Carrick, John W. Floyd, Warren & White, and W. M. Moore.

Between 1865 and 1870: T. L. Sperry, J. C. Officer, G. G. Dibrell, J. J. Cummings, J. P. Franklin, Turney & Carrick, and J. T. & J. L. Quarles.

Between 1870 nnd 1880: T. L. Sperry, J.T. & J. L. Quarles, J. J. Cummings, Dibrell & Officer, J. P. Franklin, J. P. England, W. H. Magness, and T. B. Biles.

Of the present: Quarles Bros., C. C. Young, England Bros., W. H.

Magness, E. D. Austin, R. N. Crawford and G. J. Spurlock, general merchandise; T. L Sperry, dry goods; J. Cram, fancy groceries and confections; Gist & Marchbanks and J. P. Franklin, drugs; J. W. Norwood and R. P. Biles hardware and groceries; Lyles & Co., undertaking establishment; Anderson & Bronson and Hill & Womack, livery stables; hotels, Rhea House, Mrs. A. J. Rhea, proprietress; Sparta House, Mrs. T. J. R. Swofford, proprietress, and Depot House,H. L. C. Moore, proprietor.

Found the J.W. Norwood interesting in the paragraph above. May or may not be a relationship.

(The later T. L. COULD BE Thomas L. Sperry, son of Charles W. & Henrietta)

"Died on the 9th of June, near Culloden, James A. Alston, aged 38 years and

6 months. The M. E. Church has sustained a serious loss in the removal of our

deceased brother. He was emphatically a strong member, and this was

manifested in his uniform meekness, his proverbial humility and in his daily

endeavors to exemplify in a corresponding course of action the blessed

doctrines and principles of Bible Methodism. He loved our Church and was

always ready when called upon to furnish pecuniary aid up to the measure of

his ability. His charity descended in liberal relief upon the objects of distress

whenever he found them."

8. THOMAS WILKERSON2 NORWOOD (JOHN1) was born February 01, 1799 in Poss. Washington or Knox Cos, TN, and died June 21, 1843 in Washington, Benton Co, Arkansas. He married (1) ANNA RICE February 19, 1822 in Blount Co, TN, performed by William Fagg, L.D.. He married (2) SALINDA POGUE October 01, 1834 in AR. She was born December 27, 1807 in TN, and died April 11, 1891 in Washington, Benton Co, Arkansas.

Notes for THOMAS WILKERSON NORWOOD:

Note: The Norwood Bulletin states a different birthdate for Thomas Wilkerson Norwood of 2/19/1812 (not sure of year). However, a pen & ink change from a TN family history source to Terry Depp changed the date to 1799??? Also note that a Thomas W. born 1812 would not have married 1822 to Anna Rice.

Note: This Thomas Wilkerson Norwood d. 1843 connection to John Norwood and Mary Haile is speculative. There is no concrete proof that he is the same Thomas Wilkerson but have not found any other options to date.

Speculation is as follows:

Rice, Alexander TN BLOUNT CO. 86 1830

Rice, Alexander TN BLOUNT CO. 1832

Blount County, TN Marriage Records, Vol 0, 1795-1854

Norwood, Thomas to Rice, Anna, Feb 19, 1822, performed by Wm.Fagg, L.D.

We know that a Thomas Norwood was alive in 1826 when John's will was written because he was mentioned. Note that he doesn't show up in the census/tax records until 1828 in AR but could have been there earlier.

Interview #13727

My mother was Louisa RUTHERFORD Norwood born in the Hiwassee Purchase in Tennessee, a Cherokee. My father was Thomas R. Norwood, a Methodist Preacher, born and raised near the Arkansas and Oklahoma line. I was born July 2, 1860, in Benton County, Arkansas, two miles from the old Cherokee Line Road. My mother died when I was five days old and I was the oldest of my father's children as he afterward married again. Much of my early days were spent with my grandparents, the Norwoods.

Thomas Norwood and his wife, Salinda, my grandparents, bought four hundred acres when they came here. During the days of Fort Wayne, my grandfather peddled hogs to that place, which was seven or eight miles from their home and my grandmother made "fried peach pies" which she sold at the Fort and earned enough from their sale to buy her an Indian pony.

My uncles, the Norwoods, were in the Claremon Mound Battle with the Osages. During the battle the Cherokees bottled up some Osages and many, many years later when they were found it was called a prehistoric find. Once the Cherokee law was if you were caught harboring or feeding Tom Starr, the punishment was hanging. One day he came to my aunt's house and asked her for something to eat. She gave him what she had, including corn bread and meat and he sat down on the porch to eat it and when she asked if he was not afraid, he said he would watch out. While he was sitting there eating a deer came up the lane from the woods and passed the house and he got up and said that he must be going and soon some men came from the same way looking for him. At night, he would sleep by a pond and if the frogs stopped croaking, he would get up and move. When he came to the woods, he would enter if the birds were singing but

if they were not he would not enter as they would stop their singing just as the frogs stopped croaking at the approach of strangers. The old Cherokees were real spiritualists and much of their lore was associated with the birds, animals,

etc.

At the opening of the Civil War, my father joined the Union Army and was in the Battle of Fayetteville where the Union Forces won.

Grandmother Norwood's house was burned during the War and after the War we moved back to Norwood Prairie. Uncle Ned ENGLAND had two little one-room log houses left on his place over in Washington County. My father began to hew

the pine logs for another home and soon we had a double log house. Grandmother leased her place for five years for the tenant to build her a house on it and when I was five years old, here I stated to school. I walked four miles. All of the rest of the families were Rebels, I was the only Federal and the children called me the "Little Lousy Federal". The teacher took me one day and looked me over and then she told the rest of them that I was a clean little girl. We only had three months of school in my younger days. My next school was in a little log building at the end of the prairie.

Life for us and for those around us was hard in those days, so much property had been destroyed. People were living in caves and any other makeshifts that they could find. Their stock was gone and in most cases they did not even have

any furniture except what the men could make. In the beginning the Cherokees had made homes here in a new country without anything and so most of them began again but some of the fields did not have to be recleared and a few buildings were standing so as the years passed, they managed to add to what they already had, to gather together some stock, put in a little more ground each year and to raise a little more each year while the women folks, from the flax

that they raised and from the wool of the sheep, began to make their thread and to spin the cloth for clothes for the different members of the family, weave blankets and cloth for the other bed-coverings, etc. Why, I was baptized in a

linsey dress, the cloth for which I helped to weave.

The Christian Advocate was the only newspaper that we had in the house. My father wrote an article for it. After I was married to Charlie RIDER, August 24, 1884, we went to live at the Hills. My husband was an Indian Police as

was John BARBEE living here and they often worked together. Frequently, I was alone but I could ride and was a good shot and always kept my gun at the house.

Through my husband's work, I have had a wide knowledge of the different outlaws and bad men of those days. Our home at the Hills was eight miles northwest of Pryor. We were living here when the Daltons held up a train at Adair. There were only two trains a day each way on the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad then. The marshals and police got word of the intended holdup which was to be staged that night as the train neared Adair.

Dr. GOFF had just come to that place from Saint Louis and he and another doctor had been out in the country that day but had returned and were sitting on the porch of the little hotel when they were told by the officers of the intended

holdup. Dr. Goff said that he had always wanted to see a holdup, so he and his friend continued to sit in the shade on the porch. It was a bright moon-lit night, the officers had boarded the train farther down the track and as the train neared

Adair the gang divided and part stepped on the west side of the track and the balance on the east.

The officers killed one of the gang and drove the others off and as they left they spied the white shirts of the two doctors on the porch and as the Daltons passed they fired below the white shirts, Dr. Goff was shot in the legs and the other doctor was shot in the heel. Realizing that they would have to come into the open for help, Dr. Goff said, "We will have to crawl to the train. I've got forty dollars in my pocket and I'll put it under the porch". They put the wounded doctors on the train and brought them to Vinita and there they cut off one of Doctor Goff's legs and he died.

Another time, my husband, in company with John Barbee, came up with ADAMS, a bootlegger and bad-man. Adams was riding a good horse and leading one on which was his pack containing five gallons of whiskey, one gallon of wine, his bed and camp outfit and a new saddle.

Adams gun jammed, so Charlie got the drop on him and took him prisoner. My husband's girth broke and he handed his gun to Barbee and told him to guard Adams while he fixed it. Adams, watching his chance, jumped on the other man,

knocked him down and took his gun and then he said to him, "You are going to that timber, I am going to ride there with a gun on you". Adams got away but they had his pack-horse.

Charlie brought the things home and received a telegram to report at Muskogee to help settle some trouble with the coal miners living below there. This left me at home alone with my son, Clint, who was ten years old. I had the man's gun, a

Winchester, and my son's target when a neighbor rode up and told me that Adams had returned and had sent him to tell us that he wanted his things and that he was coming after them. He came shortly after that and first asked for his liquor saying, "I guess Rider has drunk that". I replied that the evidence, meaning the liquor, had been taken to Vinita. He saw his saddle hanging up in the house, entered and got it and went to the lot where the horse was and saddled the horse and during this time he never put the gun out of his hand; he saddled his horse with the gun still in his hand. Later, one day when Charlie was in Vinita, they told him that they had Adams in the Marshal's office wounded and when Charlie went in and he saw him, Adams said, "There is the only man that ever got the drop on me".

You know how the name of "bootlegger" came into use, don't you? The Indian country has always been supposed to have prohibition and in the early days when there were distilleries along the state line, especially at Southwest City,

Missouri, and Galena, Kansas, the men wore boots with high high tops and they would buy the whiskey, mostly in gallon lots, and then put it in pint bottles and ride around the country with these bottles in the tops of their boots and sell the liquor to the people, hence the name bootleggers.

I saw Jesse JAMES at Vinita once at a fair. There were two snow-white wagons that had brought in race horses and they were getting ready for the race when a neighbor, George CLARK, who was something of a bully came along and told

some men to get off the fence around the track. When he came to the man who was Jesse James, who had not moved, he said, "Get off", and started to push him off when he made no move. James took hold of him and as he went off the

fence, he took Clark with him over the fence outside. Clark doubled up his quirt to strike when others interfered and then Clark told James not to re-enter the race grounds. James quietly walked to the ticket window and, laying down the

money, asked for a ticket. The agent refused and then he saw a gun leveled at him and James said, "This means two tickets, I've a horse running in there and I'm going to see the race". He got his ticket and entered and Jim HALL who had

recognized Jesse James, went to Clark and told him to let those men alone.

We were young and jolly in those days and had lots of company. We never played cards at home but we did dance, play dominoes, etc., and often folks would come and stay all night with us. One night at our home, I saw my husband keep looking at the window behind me. As soon as I had a chance, I said to him, "What are you watching?" He replied that he saw Charlie KEYS, a white man and an outlaw, mashing his face against the window. The next morning my husband

found where someone had slept in a bed of shucks at the barn and later where a horse had been fed. Keys was caught and served his time and three years later my husband met him at Nowata and asked him if had not slept in his barn one

night, the night that he saw him at the window. He replied that he had and he had come there that night because he was hungry. Looking into the room he saw persons there who would have caused trouble if they had seen him so he thought perhaps Charlie would come out and he would ask him for something to eat but when he did not, he had spent the night at the barn and left very early the next morning.

In my girlhood days my father had a sawmill and two outlaws came to the neighborhood and worked for him until it was found out who they were. During this time one of the men had married Carrie WHITNEY, a girl in our neighborhood.

Later, the man was killed near Muskogee and left two good horses and some things and they sent Carrie word to come and get them. One of our late United States Marshals took her down in a buggy to get them. On the way down he asked her to drive while he lighted his pipe and then he turned to the girl and asked her if she cared if he kissed her. She dropped the lines and he said after that it was the worst working over that he ever got and from a woman when he was only in fun.

I saw much of the early life at my husband's side but the toughest place I ever saw was the Negro Payment at Hayden Store, twenty-five miles north of Chelsea in the Gooseneck Bend. Expecting to be there some time, we had taken a tent.

The limestone soil there around the limestone rocks was soft from the Spring rains and when we pitched our tent it was the worst place that I have seen. I had a big dog with me and we had our food packed in a barrel. Two neighbor's tents

were on one side of me and a medicine tent on the other. Charlie had taken a Negro that he had arrested for stealing a horse to Vinita and with the exception of the dog I was alone when one night a Negro rode up to the tent and opened the

tent and stepped in and asked, "Where is Charlie Rider?" Not thinking, I replied that he had gone to Vinita but that he would return soon. Stepping forward, he asked me what we had in the barrel? I backed before him as he entered until I

reached the place where a pistol lay which I picked up and, pointing it at him, told him to leave. Once I felt my finger give under the trigger. This is the nearest I ever came to shooting anyone.

At one of the cook tents they had a big iron range and one day the Negro cook said to me when there was a shooting going on, "Come and get behind this range, it's where I get out of the way". I stayed two weeks, then I packed up and

told Charlie that I was going home. I went and stayed through the payment.

Two squawmen, Fate and Ed BIRD, lived five or five and a half miles southwest of Chelsea at the Cochran Spring, which was a salty spring. It would have little bubbles of oil on the water and the cattle coming to drink would leave footprints in the ground around the spring and these footprints would fill with the black oil that escaped with the water from the spring. The old Indians had heard that this black oil would cure rheumatism so they would come there and take feathers and skim off the oil and then strip it off the feather into bottles. A man from Pennsylvania heard of the spring and drilled three hundred feet at the spring. They had a stationary engine, fed with logs and set a long way off and connected with belts, this engine ran the pump. They placed a big wooden hogshead under the spout of the pump and with a big auger they made a bunghole at the bottom of the hogshead. I walked on a long plank to the hogshead and I remember that I had on a mother hubbard that was four yards around the bottom and they told me to be careful not to get the black

substance on my dress. As I stood there by the side of the container I gathered up my skirt and held it. Soon down below was heard a gurgling noise and out came a pint of the black liquid into the barrel with the salt water. This would

occur about each four or five minutes. The oil is lighter than the salt water so it would rise to the top and then the bunghole would be opened and let the salt water run out at the bottom. Then they would dip the oil and carry it to other

containers placed nearby, this was either fifty-three or fifty-four years ago. Before this either in Flint or Going Snake district near the old Baptist Mission was an oil spring that I have heard my grandmother speak of.

My husband's uncles, the Marcus brothers, dug the salt wells south of Salina.

In those days neighbors did everything that they could for each other.

We had few doctors but our people had their own remedies for our ailments. When the people began to break up the country the people began to chill and my father told my husband that he had a log claim over in the hills where there

was a spring, the water of which would help cure chills, so we went over there for several months.

In those days if you marked a hog, usually a sow, she and her descendants belonged to you. We were out of meat when we reached there so Pa and Charlie went out and killed eight head of hogs and Pa killed a deer so we had plenty of meat and jerked venison.

Once in our home, a log cabin, I entertained an English Lord, Lord STOUDEN and his brother, Earl. I don't think these people had much money in England and they came to this country to make some. They brought a bunch of horses with

them. They stayed at the Jack KENDAL Ranch. Lord Stouden had a fine dog and guns and they would come to our house and Charlie would take the hack and we would go out and get a lot of prairie chickens. I would shoot with the men.

One day it rained and the men got wet. When we returned to our home, I thought that I would give him Charlie's Sunday shirt which was a white one with a white starched front and fastened in the back with three small buttons. The men

changed shirts and when they came out to the table Lord Stouden had Charlie's shirt on wrong side in front and had it buttoned down the front and when his attention was called to it he replied that it was warmer that way. It was at my log

cabin that he ate his first corn bread. Here he sat down to the table on which were vegetables, corn bread and fat meat.

At one time we had a coal mine on the farm where we were living. You rather lay on your shoulder and picked the coal out from under the ledge. I have tried this, too, and have picked out a tub-full at a time.

At one time we had five brothers, the HILTONS, from Texas working for us; all were good musicians and the evenings were happy ones with them playing after they returned to the house and got cleaned up and supper over. In remembrance of those days, I wrote a poem and when I learned that they were working at Bushyhead, later, I sent them a copy of it in a letter unsigned. One of the brothers got it and when he read it, he took it down to another brother and

read it to him and when he heard it, he, "That's from mother, she is homesick to see us". Soon after that one night at our home here in Afton after dark from a distance we heard the sound of music which kept coming closer. As I recognized

the music, I told Charlie that it was my boys and sure enough it was; they had come up by train and remained with us that night between trains.

I have heard some old folklore stories of being turned into animals. I don't know whether or not they are true but this I did see. When Heck BRUNER was drowned we lived in Pryor. The did not recover his body for three days and then they had to slide it on a blanket and into a coffin and when they brought the body home, it not being wise to take it into the house, it stood in the wagon in front of the house and while here some fluids from the body ran out and onto the ground. We were passing here later and our dog ran up to the place and after sniffing it, fell sideways to the ground. After that that dog would never pass that spot but would go to the other side of the street when passing there.

Charlie died here fifteen years ago; during his life we had always worked hard and since then I worked harder that ever to keep from remembering. After my days work I would sew and quilt fine quilts at night, etc. I can still go places and

spend much time visiting my old friends here but the strain on my eyes is telling on them for something is growing over them and I can now only see from the sides of them and am not able to either sew or read, which makes my days very

long. My only contact with the news today is the radio.

REV. JAMES A. MITCHELL

(9th child of the Rev. Jesse Mitchell)

SOURCE: Centennial Volume of Missouri Methodism, page 290

His grandparents, Morris and Elizabeth Mitchell, moved from East Tennessee in pioneer days, about 1835. They were Methodists, true and tried. His grandfather was a local preacher. His father and mother, Jesse and Providence Mitchell, came a little later and settled in Polk County, near Morrisville, Missouri. Morrisville College has been supported and patronized largely by the younger generations. His father was a Methodist preacher and was serving Stockton Circuit, Cedar County, Missouri, at the time of his death in 1854. He is the youngest of fifteen children, and was born June 24th, 1843. He was baptized in infancy and converted when nine years old.

He worked on a farm in summer and attended school during winter. In his eleventh year his father died, and hence education was limited. Then the war between the states broke on his young life. He, with three older brothers, numerous relations, and many comrades, cast their lot with what prove to be the 'Lost Cause'. Somehow, down in his heart, he hopes that all was not lost. The bright, patriotic lives that went down on both sides surely were not sacrificed for naught; some where, some way, some day, we shall understand. He lost a limb at the Battle of Corinth in 1862, and he passed through the Blackwater and Vicksburg engagements a cripple.

In September, 1863, he returned to Missouri, and entered active business life. Soon the Church of his father and mother and his God took him up, and he was a layman in the Methodist Episcopal Church until 1891. His Presiding Elder, Rev. E. K. Miller, D.D., at the death of his pastor, Rev. M. R. Jones, put James A. in charge of the home circuit, Renick, Missouri. He served until the Quarterly meeting without license, except the command of Dr. Miller. Then he was licensed, recommended and admitted on trial, and made pastor of Durham and Maywood Circuit; three years. Since then he served Monroe City Circuit, two years; then Humphreys Circuit, three years; Chillicothe Circuit. one year; Mt. Olive Circuit, three years; Norborne Circuit, two years, and DeWitt Circuit, two years. The Conference has been good to him, he says; God is, and always has been good to him. His loving kindness and providence has been lavishly bestowed upon him, he writes. He loves the Church and his brother man, but he loves his Lord and His work best of all. He has witnessed many happy conversions, and not only ministered to, but has ministered unto, by the Church of God.

Brother Mitchell was devoted to his wife. who departed this life some years ago. His children are Professor Percy Norwood Mitchell, Miss Edna Mitchell and Miss Willie May Mitchell.

Compendium of Local Biography 1898 p227

Col. S.C. Norwood among the most prominent men now living in Bledsoe

county who have won an honorable name as a citizen of that county, none

is better deserving of representation in a volume of this nature than the

gentleman whose name introduces this sketch. Colonel Norwood was

born in the town of Maryville, Blount county, TN., February 27, 1822, a

son of John and Sarah (Crouch) Norwood. The father was of Irish

descent, born in Baltimore of a family of three brothers - one of whom

went to North Carolina, one to Alabama, and John to Tennessee. From

these have sprung large families in each state. Our subject's father, John

Norwood, was contemporaneous with Sam Houston, and was a warm

personal friend and accompanied him in his campaigns in the Indian wars,

and when Houston was badly wounded, he hauled him back to Maryville

where they both then lived.

Col. Norwood had no educational advantages in early life, the extent of it

being comprised in the old woodback Dilworth spelling book and addition

in arithmetic, and what he may have acquired after manhood was by

absorption, through a comprehensive, penetrating and discriminating mind

upon all questions presented to him. Upon this talent, and enforced by an

indomitable energy, he built up an extensive business education or

qualification, which gave him character of one of the most enterprising men

of his county. But with his better qualities he possesses others less valuable

- that of an extremely nervous, sensitive, impulsive, and combative nature,

that frequently gives him occasions of great humiliation and pain.

In early life he developed great love for military tactics, and was promoted

to command of a militia regiment, from which he derives the title affixed to

his name. In the year 1856 he was appointed clerk and master of the

chancery court at Pikeville, Tennessee, and served as such until 1865. This

was the first field of his business education, where his natural love and

talent for the law was rapidly developed and at the close of the war he was

licensed to practice at the bar, with a knowledge and fear of his inability as

a public speaker to make a success of his profession, hoping that time and

labor would overcome his nature defects. But in a short time he became

disheartened and surrendered his profession, for a wider field of activity

and constant labor. Into this he entered and found a checkered and

uncertain field, but indomitable energy and love for excitement gave him

much success in business, mixed with many failures, in all of which his legal

knowledge served him admirably. In this field he became an extensive

stock dealer, and also, of general merchandise, and lastly, has done an

extensive business in mineral lands, with a large balance sheet in his favor.

The last and most fatal error of his life was in 1891. He bought twelve

thousand dollars of stock in a national bank, whose annual reports showed

a prosperous and lucrative business, but in 1893 its discounts and loans

proved almost worthless and the bank failed with the loss of the entire

capital.

His business principles were always conducted on the faith and conviction

that "the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof " ; for God hath said, "It

is me that giveth the power to get wealth" that "the Lord buildeth up and he

teareth down" that "the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be

the name of the Lord forevermore." And whilst in the frequent success of

business beyond that of many men of like intellect, he always attributed the

same to the Lord, and tried to thus acknowledge him by unstinted acts of

charity without ostentation or pride. And when, in his hasty and impulsive

business habits, he made grievous mistakes, he humbly submitted without

murmur or complaint, saying, "The Lord chasteneth whom he loveth.

He has been a zealous member of the church since 1848, and for the last

eight years has devoted his life to the study of the Bible, more directly to

the prophecies an revelations. During this time his notes and comments on

these portions of the Good Book have been elaborate. From these, in the

year 1895, he prepared an article for the "Chattanooga Times" showing

from the Bible, that the world is now in the last days of the gentile

dispensations and near the beginning or ushering in of Christ's return for the

establishing of his kingdom on earth, and the destruction of all earthly

kingdoms or governments. This was to be preceded by a time of trouble

such as was never before known or ever will be again. He quoted the

words of Christ's declaration of his return, and those of Daniel's

prophecies of the same period. He showed that the irrepressible conflict of

capital and labor, which is now threatening the disruption and destruction

of every intelligent government on earth, was God's immediate agency for

the destruction of all nations and governments of earth and for the erection

of Christ's peaceable kingdom which shall bless all the nations of the earth

and shall be good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. This

article, by many Bible readers, was regarded as very timely. Some fifteen

years since, Colonel Norwood wrote a long series of reminiscences of the

history of Sequatchie Valley since 1838, as he knew it. This was interesting

and instructive to the older inhabitants as well as the younger, and he has

preserved the only copy of this history known, which should be preserved

and held sacred by the younger generations. About the same time he wrote

a minute history of the life of John A. Murrell, the great western land pirate.

Starting after his discharge from the state prison to the date of his death at

Pikeville, of his peculiar burial, the disinterring of his body, and his

decapitation by two medical students. His head was last seen in a museum

in Philadelphia, Penn. These articles have lately been reproduced by the

"Fayetteville Observer" Fayetteville, Tennessee.

In the year 1841, Mr. Norwood was married to Catharine J. Hoodenpyle,

daughter of Peter Hoodenpyle and granddaughter of Philip Hoodenpyle,

born in the city of Amsterdam, Holland. Mr. Norwood and his wife are

now in their seventy-seventh year and fifty-sixth of married life, and are

living in the house on the farm where his wife was born and which was her

patrimony.

Goodspeed, History of Tennessee, Warren County

The county court of Warren County was organized in March, 1808, at the house of Joseph Westmoreland, half a mile south of Barren Fork, where a log courthouse was afterward erected. Upon the location of the county seat at McMinnville, the court was removed thereto. though early records of this court were destroyed during the late war, and but little or nothing can be learned of the proceedings or of the officers of the same. The same is true of the other courts. The following is an incomplete list of the officers of this court:

Chairmen - Since 1860 the chairmen of the county court have been in the order given, Philip HOODENPYLE, Thomas Mabry, John Smith, Philip Hoodenpyle, Thomas S. Meyers, S. D. Walling, John Smith, John S. Meyers, W. B. Smartt,

S. C. NORWOOD, John Smith, John W. Ford, J. L. Miller, J. W. Gales, I. B. Neal, S. J. Walling, John R. Parker and J. C. Meyers, the present incumbent.

The circuit court was organized with the county, but as to the early officers nothing can be learned, save that Pleasant Henderson was probably the first clerk. Since 1865 the clerks have been S. C. NORWOOD, John J. Lowery and A. J. Curl, the present incumbent.

May be related to S. C. but don't have anything in between to know.

Notes for ELBERT FRANKLIN MERCER:

Chicot County, Arkansas Biographies

copied from Goodspeed's Biographical and Historical Memoirs of

Southern Arkansas

Joseph B. Mercer

Joseph B. Mercer is a well-known citizen of Chicot County, and is a leading merchant of Dermott. He was born in Greene County, Tenn., April 24, 1852, and is a son of Elbert F. Mercer, who was a native Tennesseean, born in 1812, and was reared and educated in his native State, making Tennessee his home until his death in 1867. He was a successful farmer for many years, and by his industry and frugality amassed a handsome property prior to his death.

Being a man of fine business attainments, he was elected county clerk of Greene County on the Democrat ticket, and this position held for fourteen consecutive years, being at last displaced by the reconstruction measures adopted in that and other Southern States after the termination of the Civil War. He was true to all the interests and principles of the Democratic party, and was always active in the support of its measures and doctrines.

He was an exemplary member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and for many years prior to his death was an elder, taking an active interest in church and Sunday-school work. His religion, being a part of his life, was duly observed in all his intercourse with his fellowmen, and his public and private record are a monument and tribute to his memory.

Mary A. (Norwood) Mercer, his wife, was born in Blount County, Tenn., in 1816, and was a daughter of John Norwood, a Tennesseean, and was reared, educated and married in her native State, making her home there until she passed from life in 1858. She and Mr. Mercer were married in 1831, and ten sons and six daughters blessed their union, fifteen of whom are living: Elizabeth, Recina, Wayne, Martha, Thomas, Charles, Franklin, James, Catherine, Joseph B., Mary, William, Nannie, Hugh and Mary A. John died in infancy. Eleven of these children are married and have homes of their own.

Joseph B. Mercer resided in Greene County, Tenn., throughout his youthful days, and received a fair academic education in the Masheim Institute, but believing that Arkansas presented better opportunities for a young man to succeed in life than his native State, he removed thither in 1870, when but eighteen years of age, and for two years worked as a farm laborer in Chicot County. He then turned his attention to railroading, securing a position as fireman on the Mississippi, Ouachita & Red River Railroad, and at the end of two years was promoted to locomotive engineer, which position he held for about ten years, faithfully discharging his duties to his employers and with great credit to himself. At the end of this time he again interested himself in agriculture, his labors being conducted on a farm on Bayou Bartholomew in Chicot county, Ark., and after being thus occupied for four years he entered the mercantile business at Dermott, where he is still holding forth, his stock of general merchandise being valued at $3,500 or $4,000.

Besides this property he owns the only livery stable in the town, and has some valuable real estate near by, seventy-five acres of which are under excellent cultivation, the principal products being corn and cotton, although all the cereals can be raised in abundance. Mr. Mercer is a member of the K. of H., belongs to the Presbyterian Church, and is a model citizen in every respect, and has worked his way from a poor boy to his present honorable position in society.

November 28, 1875, he was married to Miss Margaret McDermott, a native of Chicot County, Ark., a daughter of Dr. Charles and Hettie S. McDermott, a history of whom is given in the sketch of Philander McDermott, and their union was blessed in the birth of seven children, four of whom are now living: Katie Belle, Eula Sue, Charles F. and Ethel. Those deceased are Mary W., Ethel O. and Mary Anna. The mother of these children died on April 3, 1889, she having been a member of the Presbyterian Church, a devout Christian, whose heart was full of love for her Master and for suffering humanity. She reared for herself a monument in the hearts of those around her that will live for years to come. She was an exemplary wife and mother, a kind and sympathizing friend to those in distress, and her death cast a shadow over many a heart outside of her own stricken and sorrowing household.

Marriage:

===

I found an Elbert Mercer in Greene Co, TN that apparently married a Mary Norwood according to the IGI. It doesn't say where or give a date or any information on Mary in the IGI file. It also showed him born in Washington Co, TN which would definitely be the right area of TN for the John Norwood family.

I searched my FTM Marriage records and found a marriage for an Elbert F. Mercer to a Mary Ann Norwood in Blount Co, TN on 10/20/1840. That would make her at least a second wife from the census records listed below. I could not find any other marriages for him in TN in my FTM Marriage Records. That should make from Martha on down thru the last one in the 1860 census her children with him.

There were a lot more children than was shown in Nancy's Ancestry file that Kitty found; however, the earlier ones could have belonged to an earlier wife. But the ones she shows conform with the 1850 and 1860 census names.

From a Bio on D. W. Mercer in 1887 Goodspeed's History of Greene Co, TN)

His parents, Elbert F. and Rachel (Thompson) Mercer, are natives of this county. The latter died December 7, 1838. The father then married Mary A. Norwood, a native of Blount County, Tenn., and after her death, June 20, 1860, married Charlotte Hull, a native of Greene County. He died March 19, 1887. He was a deputy sheriff of Blount, and a trustee of Greene County, several years. Mr. Mercer was of English-Irish origin, and followed carpentering and farming. He was a son of John Mercer.

35. STEPHEN COLUMBUS3 MITCHELL (SARAH2 NORWOOD, JOHN1) was born September 18, 1831 in Blount Co, TN, and died August 19, 1904 in Polk Co, MO.

Notes for STEPHEN COLUMBUS MITCHELL:

"Stephen C. Mitchell, familiarly known as "Lum" died at his home in Bolivar,

Friday August 19, 1904, and was buried the following day in Greenwood Cemetery, the funeral services being conducted by Reverend G. J. Hunt, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Stephen was born in Blount Co. Tennessee

September 18, 1831, and lacked only one month of being 73 years of age

at the time of his death. Stephen came with his parents to Polk County

in 1835 and he has resided here ever since. He enlisted in the Union Army

and served until 1864 when he resigned as Second Lieutenant of the Company

of which his brother, L.J. (Lafayette Jackson) was Captain. He was twice

married, first to Miss Martha A. Hendricks of Arkansas on January 22, 1859,

who died August 16, 1892. To them were born nine children: Lafayette A.

(deceased), Alice C., Austin A., Albert P., an infant who died shortly

after birth, Emma J., Edward L., Mattie E., Mark C., Stephen was married

a second time to (Dru)Cinda Austin, who with the six children above named

survive him.

He was a Christian, having been converted at the Mitchell Campground, long

famed as a revival meeting place, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church

of Bolivar and continued a faithful member until his death.

About the close of the war in 1867 or 1868, he engaged in merchandising

in Bolivar, where he continued until the day of his death, though in later

years he has given over the management of his business to his sons. He

was one of a large family, who are noted for their strong physique, and

enjoyed unusually good health until his last sickness. He was a man of

rugged honesty, who would miss a sale of goods rather than misrepresent

an article. Perhaps no citizen of the county ever gave more constant attention

to his business or took so little recreation. His death takes another of

the pioneer citizens, who have done so much for the upbuilding of our town

and county and whose ranks are being rapidly diminished by the ruthless

hand of death. Peace to his ashes."

Stephen Columbus MITCHELL, b. 18 Sep 1831 TN, d. 19 Aug 1904 Polk Co. MO,

was the son of Stephen MITCHELL (1802-1888) and Sarah NORWOOD (1803-1839).

Stephen MITCHELL was the son of Morris MITCHELL and Elizabeth HOOSANG.

 

Child of STEPHEN COLUMBUS MITCHELL is:

i. AUSTIN A.4 MITCHELL.

Notes for AUSTIN A. MITCHELL:

AUSTIN A. MITCHELL

History Of Hickory, Polk, Cedar, Dade And Barton Counties, Missouri 1889, published by Goodspeed, Pg. 682--Polk County Biographies Section

Austin A. Mitchell, treasurer of Polk County, was born in this county September 13, 1858. The Mitchell family traces its ancestry to three brothers, who came from England in an early day. The father of our subject, Stephen C. Mitchell, was born in Blount County, Tenn., in 1831, and came to this county when only four years old, where he grew to manhood and married Martha Hendricks, of Arkansas, by whom he had a family of eight children. He served in the late war as a Union soldier till 1864, when he resigned as second lieutenant. The subject of this sketch received his education in the Bolivar schools, and in the Southwest Baptist College. Having clerked for his father till 1885, he became his partner in business, and in 1886 was elected county treasurer, and re-elected in 1888. In September, 1887, he married Lizzie B. Morrow, and they have one girl. He is a Republican, a member of the I.O.O.F and K. of P. He is the youngest county official, and an efficient business man

Note: James M. Dougherty, age 23, born in TN (a saddler) was living with John and Elizabeth in the 1860 White Co. Census. He died in the Civil War.

John and family lived in Missouri in 1869. Moved there after 1867. Not in IL in the 1870 U. S. Census but back in IL in 1880 U S. Census. They were in IL in 1867 and back by 1876 because Joseph and David were born in IL at those times. They were in Butler County, Missouri during the 1870 U. S. Census and presume that is where their daughter was born. I did not find any family names near their census to indicate that they might have gone to be with any relatives that I am aware of.

There may be another child born and died while they were in Missouri.

The Arcolian Weekly Obituary Dated February 22. 1912

Death Came Unexpectedly to S. R. Duncan

Prominent Citizen and Pioneer of this Community Died Sunday

Another of the pioneers of this section of the country has passed to his reward and a man who has for many years been a familiar figure on the street of Arcola will be seen here no more. Samuel R. Duncan, farmer and broomcorn broker, died at his home on North Locust street at 1:10 o'clock on Sunday morning.

His death occurred unexpectedly after a few days illness and was a great shock to the members of his family and his friends in this city. It is true that for several months he had been a sufferer from rheumatism and has been confined to his home for a great part of the time but until Friday evening no particular alarm was manifested over his condition. An impaction of the bowels furnished a serious complication which baffled the skill of his physicians. late Saturday a consultation of doctors was held, Dr. Emil Reis, a famous Chicago specialist and Dr. Fuller, of Tuscola, being in attendance. They could hold out little hope to the family and but a few minutes after they left the house Mr. Duncan suffered a stroke of apoplexy which caused his death almost instantly.

The funeral services were held at his late home Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock p. m. Rev I. M. Bennington, pastor of the Arcola M.E. church, being the officiating minister. A large number of the residents of the city and vicinity were present to pay their last respects to an old and much respected citizen. The interment was in the Arcola cemetery. As a testimony of respect the business houses were closed from two til three o'clock Tuesday.

Mr. Duncan was a native of East Tennessee, being born at Marysville, in that state, November 30, 1837. He resided there until he was about sixteen years of age and then came to Illinois, locating first in Crawford County, where he lived for a few years. He came to this section of Illinois in the sixties, at which time he was engaged in farming, south of the city. Afterwards he engaged in the broomcorn brokerage business, until a few years ago being a member of the firm of Duncan & Tarbox. In late years he had been in the business for himself. Two-one years ago he moved to this city and has resided here ever since,

Mr. Duncan was married to Miss Margaret Kellam, who survives him, in Richland County, IL, September 6, 1860. Thirteen children were born to them of whom ten are now living. They are: Joseph P., Wichita, Kan.; J. H., Thomas, OkIa., William, Leeds, Okia.; Mrs. George H. Clark, Mexico, Mo; Mrs. J. L. Moore, Chicago; Mrs. Frank Quirk, Knox, Ind.; Mrs. Al Daily, Miss Minnie, Samuel and Fran, Arcola.

In life Mr. Duncan was a robust specimen of manhood; a type of the hardy pioneer. He was one of the men who helped to make this section of the country the fertile farming region it is to-day. In common with the rest he encountered the hardships and discouragements of the early days, struggling to grow crops in the un-drained, swampy fields with primitive implements of agriculture, standing off attacks of ague and malaria, helping in the development of the wilderness and living to see it blossom into the finest farming country in the world.

He was a man of decided character; out-spoken in his views and fiery in his denunciation of molly-coddles and grafters. In politics he was a life-long democrat and always took a lively interest in political affairs. With all he was a good citizen and is mourned by many friends as well as by the members of his family.

Descendants of St. Clair Norwood

Generation No. 1

1. ST. CLAIR1 NORWOOD was born in Blount county, Tennessee. He married

CATHERINE J. HOODENPYLE, daughter of PETER HOODENPYLE.

Child of ST. NORWOOD and CATHERINE HOODENPYLE is:

i. PETER J.2 NORWOOD, b. October 03, 1842, Pikeville, Bledsoe, Tennessee;

m. URSALINE SCHOOLFIELD, February 11, 1869, Sequachee Valley, East

Tennessee; b. of Sequachee Valley, East Tennessee.

Notes for PETER J. NORWOOD:

Source: "Texas, Johnson and Hill Counties" Published 1892.

"P. J. NORWOOD, of Cleburne, Johnson county, is a son of St. Clair and Catherine J. Norwood. The father was born and reared in Blount county, Tennessee, and is now living in Pikevillle, Bledsoe county, that State, living the plain and uneventful life of a farmer. The mother is a daughter of Peter Hoodenpyle, one of the first settlers of Sequachee Valley, East Tennessee.

"Peter J. Norwood, one of six children, was born in Pikeville, Bledsoe

county, Tennessee , Oct. 3, 1842. He entered the Confederate army in August,

1861, enlisting in Colonel Henry Ashby's Tennessee Regiment of Cavalry and

began his service in East Tennessee and Kentucky, near Cumberland Gap. He

was in the fight at Fishing creek, and later the engagements at Chickamauga,

Missionary Ridge and Lookout Mountain; from there went down to Jonesboro,

Georgia; was with Hood on his return into Tennessee, and after the desperation of his forces at Nashville was part of a detachment that made its way to the Eastern Army, then in North Carolina. Mr. Norwood served until the general surrender, was a private throughout, was never sick or absent from roll call, and was captured but once, but was held only a short time. He was almost constantly on duty, on the march or skirmish, being in the cavalry service. After the close of the war he returned home, and shortly afterward went to Selma, Alabama, where for two years he was agent for the old Selma & Meridian Railroad Company. He then went to Bayou Bartholomew, Louisiana, where he was engaged in farming one year, but, on account of ill health, he returned to the mountains of East Tennessee, where he soon recovered. February 11, 1869, Mr. Norwood married Miss Ursaline Schoolfield, a daughter of P. H. Schoolfield, of that place. In 1871 Mr. Norwood came to Texas, settling near Garden Valley, Smith county, but after a brief residence there moved to Fort Worth and engaged in the dairy business. Four years later he moved to Kaufman county, purchasing a ranch of 4,000 acres eight miles south of the city of Kaufman, on King's creek, which he stocked and conducted successfully until 1881, and in that year decided to seek better quarters for his increasing flocks and herds. He settled on Pecos river, near

Petrican Springs, but two years later came to Cleburne, Johnson county, where he has since resided.

"After settling in this city Mr. Norwood purchased an interest in the insurance agency of E. T. Lewis, in connection with Zach Brown. The latter subsequently sold his interest to W. J. Rutledge, and in 1887 Mr. Norwood bought Rutledge's interest, since which time he has been alone. This agency, of which Mr. Norwood is now sole proprietor, was founded in 1876, and is the oldest and only exclusive agency of the kind in the city. It represents twenty-one fire companies, four accident and one life company. Mr. Norwood has some of the largest companies in the world, and the capitalization of these companies amounts to over $70,000,000. He has a well equipped office, and does a thriving business

throughout the year. He is a member of the City Council, a director in the

Farmers and Merchants' National Bank of Cleburne, a member of the K. of P.,

the K. of H., and the I. O. O. F. He is a shrewd, wide-awake business man,

and a most excellent gentleman."

We have Hamiltons in our Nail ancesters- Abraham Hamilton married a

Delilah Nail- and his son, William Nail married a Delilah Hamilton

We have not been able to connect the several Hamilton families.

The Norwoods are related distantly, but I have not made that connection

for sure-I was interested in the Norwoods primarily because they apparently came from Tennessee to Texas on the same wagon train as my great

grandparents. In later generations there was a Sid Norwood in Cleburne

Texas who was on the Borad of Directors of the same Cleburne Bank that

my Grandfather was President of.\

During the 1920's Sid Norwood started playing the Commodity Market on

peanut hulls (which were used as fiber filler in Kellogs and Post Cereals, Postum, etc) When in 1920 the market fell to pieces, Sid, who had been illegally using Bank funds to gamble on the market with, took what cash he could lay his hands on and ran off with his secretary to Mexico, leaving a wife and four or five kids for the community to support. Several of the other Board members declares bankrupcy, left town or committed suicide. My Grandfather told the bank investors and depositors that they could settle at 10% on the dollar immediately, or, if they could wait, he would repay them in full with interest.

Several settled, and several waited. It took Granpa ten years, but he

paid back every debt the Bank owed to those who had faith in him. As you

can imagine, the name Norwood had been of interest to me every since I

first heard this story as a child.

Your story is most interesting. I would love to know more about the

wagon train (timeframe, etc) and Sid Norwood, if you don't mind

sharing. He would seem to be the son of Peter J. Norwood who is a son

of Sinclair from what I find in my notes. Sinclair is a brother to my

line of Susannah Norwood. I am truly sorry to hear that Sid caused

your relatives monetary hardship but I am sure there is a bad apple in

every barrel. This is the first time I have heard of any of the Norwood

family being dishonest; however, one only hears the good parts of family

for the most part.

Children of PETER NORWOOD and URSALINE SCHOOLFIELD are:

i. SIDNEY B.5 NORWOOD, b. August 1877.

Notes for SIDNEY B. NORWOOD:

 

S. B. Norwood was President of Cleburne National Bank.

May 21, 1889 the bank nationalized and was called the National Bank of Cleburne, with a capital of $75,000. S. E. Moss was elected president, A. B. Allen, who again bought stock, was vice-president, John W. Floore was cashier, and W. J. Rutledge assistant cashier.

Allen withdrew his interest again and it was taken over by W. J. Hurley and the vice-presidency given to B. L. Durham.

The bank built a two-story brick building on the southeast corner of the court house square and rented out office space in the second story.

In 1892 the directors were: S. E. Moss, John J. Floore, B. L. Durham, W. J. Rutledge, W. H. Stratton, Coon Williams, and John Wesley Smith. Smith came to Johnson county in the early 1870's. He built a home west of Rio Vista near the Nolan River. His grandson, Lowell Smith, Sr. restored this home and he and Mrs. Smith live here.

The second cashier was E. T. Kelley, elected in 1894, succeeded by J. S. Corley; Corley by D. E. Waggoner and Waggoner by S. B. Norwood.

In 1900 W. F. Ramsey was elected president, followed in April 1907 by Sidney B. Norwood, who began his association with the National Bank of Cleburne as a collector after graduating from the Cleburne schools and three months of business college. He served seven years as cashier before becoming president.

J. H. Keith was vice-president with Norwood, followed by J. T. Faulkenbury. J. C. Blakeney was cashier and Oscar Poole and J. T. Jordon assistant cashiers. Directors were: F. D. Dickson, S. T. Faulkenbury, W. T. Bradbury, John T. Jordan, S. C. Blakeney and S. B. Norwood.

The bank closed Oct.18, 1921 because of poor collections and heavy withdrawals of county funds. Judge Wm. P. Ramsey of Dallas, chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, said: "very heavy loss by the Cleburne Peanut & Produce Co., due to heavy decline in the value of peanut products . . . county funds loaned out . . . due to short crops and hard times have not been repaid in amounts sufficient to meet withdrawals . . ." So the bank which had operated for 43 years was closed. According to the papers of that day, when process papers were to be served on S. B. Norwood, he could not be found. Someone in later years said they saw Norwood in Mexico.

In Reply to: WEST, Cleburne, Johnson Co., Texas by Linda Asberry of 5853

My uncle, Francis Perry West was the bank president of Farmers & Merchants Bank of Cleburne. Uncle Frank and his wife Lou later moved to Amarillo, Tx where they died. His daughter was Hattie Lou West who married T. J. Harrell of Ft. Worth. Hattie Lou and T. J. are both dead but they had one daughter Frances Ann who is probably still living in Ft. Worth, TX. I don't know her married name or address but I will try to locate this information.

 

 

Notes for FRANCIS PERRY WEST:

F. P. West was President of the Farmer's & Merchants Bank

The History of Johnson County and Surrounding Area

by Viola Block - 1970

The Farmers and Merchants National Bank was established Sept. 1, 1890 with a capital of $100,000. E. Y. Brown was president, Mark L. Kennard, vice-president, A. B. Allen, cashier, and W. A. Jennings, assistant cashier.

In a report, written about 1917, the author said the capital and surplus were then over $200,000, the largest in Johnson county, with deposits of $600,000. They were equipped to handle commercial banking of any description. Their two story building was on the northwest corner of Chamber and Anglin Sts. (this is one of the few buildings left after a recent fire).

About 1900 Frank P. West became president and was president in 1917, Mark L. Kennard, vice-president, Brown Douglas, vice-pres., W. K. Williamson, cashier, and H. S. Wilson, Jr. assistant cashier. Directors were: W. K. Williamson, H. S. Wilson, E. E. Crow, M. L. Kennard, Brown Douglas, James Barnard, and Frank P. West.

T. R. West became assistant cashier when H. S. Wilson, Jr. was made cashier. In the 20's T. R. West was cashier. The West brothers were sons of the first merchant at old Caddo Grove and they were later prominent at Joshua.

Frank West was married to Lula M. a sister of Sidney B. Norwood.

History of Cherokee Indians and Their Legends and Folk Lore by Emmet Starr

Preface

This humble effort is attempted for the purpose of perpetuating some of the facts relative to the Cherokee tribe, that might otherwise be lost. The object has been to make it as near a personal history ad biography of as many Cherokees as possible.

Without the assistance of the magnanimous, wholesoul membership of the nation, the work would not have been possible and for that reason I wish to thank each and every member, for their hearty collaboration and express my regret that the work has not the merit with which many others might have invested it.

COLONEL A. H. NORWOOD.

The memory of Colonel A. H. Norwood constituted a link between the primitive past and the progressive present in Oklahoma. He lived retired in Dewey, Washington county, for a number of years before his death. He was a most honored and representative citizen, for he had left the impress of his individuality and ability upon the history of the state in many ways. He aided in guiding its material and intellectual advancement and in promoting its political, legal and moral status and his life's story, if told in detail, would be a most interesting one, showing many phases of the development that has led to modern-day conditions. Mr. Norwood was a native of Cleveland, Tennessee, his birth having there occurred on the 17th of November, 1850. His parents were P. W. and Isabella Ann (Cowan) Norwood, who were also natives of eastern Tennessee, where they resided until 1876, when they became residents of Texas, there remaining until called to the home beyond. The father devoted his time and efforts to farming throughout his life and while a resident of Tennessee filled several positions of public honor and trust, including both county and state offices. During the Civil war he held the rank of captain and served as provost marshal in the Union army. His wife was a first cousin of Sam Houston, the distinguished Texas statesman, her mother having been Hattie Houston. Andrew Cowan, grandfather of Colonel Norwood, served as an officer in the War of 1812 and in both paternal and maternal lines the ancestors of Colonel Norwood have long resided on this side of the Atlantic. He was a direct descendant of John Norwood, who settled at Lyons Mills near Baltimore, Maryland, in colonial days and he and his five sons fought valiantly for independence during the Revolutionary war. He was of Scotch birth and had come to the new world from the north of England.

A. H. Norwood supplemented his early educational privileges by study in the Flint Springs Academy in eastern Tennessee and he also studied law with a member of the bar at Chattanooga. He was the eldest in a family of eight children, six of whom reached adult age and was the only member of the family who did not accompany the parents on their removal to Texas in 1876. Six years prior to that time, or in 1870, he had made his way to the Cherokee Nation of the Indian Territory, where he took up the profession of teaching, which he followed at Fort Gibson for a time and then spent three years as a teacher in connection with the Orphan Asylum of the Cherokees. From Fort Gibson he went to the Coowescoowee district, taking up his abode on the present site of Claremore. There he engaged in the practice of law and also devoted a part of his attention to merchandising. While there residing he established the Claremore post office, and at that time there was only one delivery of mail per week and it was brought in on horseback. Colonel Norwood acted as the first postmaster and gave the name of Claremore to the office in honor of an old Osage chief. Broadening the scope of his activities Colonel Norwood became associated, in 1881, with Colonel J. H. Bartles in the lumber and milling business and they had other business relations in common more or less for fifteen years. While Colonel Norwood figured prominently as a teacher, lawyer, newspaper man, merchant and in general business affairs and politics, there was perhaps no one line of his activities more deserving of mention than his labors among the Cherokees and the fact that for about twenty years his sound judgment was a helpful factor in deciding the problems that arose before the national council of the Cherokee Nation. At different periods he served as secretary of both houses of the national legislature and he was one of the Cherokee officials who signed the patent for the lands now owned by the Osage tribes in Oklahoma. As a lawyer and representative of the Cherokee Nation he actively participated in the allotment of land and practiced to a large extent before the interior department in Washington, D. C. His life in this section of the country and his thorough study of the problems that have been and still exist, made him an authority upon many matters of vital importance to the Cherokee Nation. He represented the Cherokees at Washington and actively opposed the bill for the original opening of Oklahoma Territory. He afterward became a vigorous antagonist of the separate statehood movement, working ardently for single statehood, which finally prevailed. For many years he was a prominent figure in tribal politics and later became a recognized force in the democratic ranks in Oklahoma. In 1914 and 1915 he was secretary of the county central committee and at one time he served on the governor's staff with the rank of colonel. Federal appointment made him the first mayor of Claremore and by virtue of that office he presided over the courts with jurisdiction similar to that of United States commissioner, a service that long made him known as Judge Norwood. He was also the first mayor of Chelsea.

In the field of journalism Colonel Norwood also figured prominently, having engaged in newspaper publication at Claremore and Chelsea, while subsequently he became owner and editor of the Dewey Globe, a paper which he established. When Colonel Norwood was postmaster of Dewey, his wife served as clerk for him. She afterward became postmistress of Dewey. It is said that Colonel Norwood had a wider acquaintance among the people of the Cherokee Nation than any other citizen. By his long residence and associations and also by wide study he became familiar with both the Delaware and Cherokee tribes, historically and personally, and had personal acquaintance with all the chiefs and officials of the Cherokees since the time of John Ross. He could relate many interesting incidents in connection with the Indian life and their many beautiful customs, traditions and religion. He spoke and understood to some extent the Cherokee language and also had knowledge of the language of some of the other tribes.

Always interested in the development of the natural resources of this section of the country he was the first man to organize a company for oil operations in Oklahoma. It was in 1889 that he was instrumental in forming the Cherokee Oil & Development Company, Incorporated under the laws of Illinois and in which a number of St. Louis business men were interested, their first wells being drilled at Chelsea. For ten years Colonel Norwood was the legal representative for the Indian Territory of the Cudahy Oil Company, the first to develop the oil resources of Washington county and he secured many of the leases to the land on which they conducted their operations. While residing at Claremore, Colonel Norwood engaged not only in merchandising but also in buying and shipping stock. His activities were thus many and varied and all were of a character that contributed to the material development, the upbuilding and the progress of the state. The cause of education ever found in Colonel Norwood a stalwart champion and he did much effective work in building educational institutions in the old Cherokee Nation and served on several local school boards.

Colonel Norwood had been married three times. In 1872 he wedded Miss Alice R. Gourd, a daughter of Judge Jackson R. Gourd, a prominent representative of the Cherokee Nation. Mrs. Norwood and the only child of that marriage passed away. For his second wife Colonel Norwood chose Susie Love, a member of the Delaware tribe. She passed away and the two children of that marriage are also deceased. In 1904 Colonel Norwood wedded Ida M. Woodard, a native of Indiana and of Quaker parentage. They have many friends not only in Dewey but throughout eastern Oklahoma, where Colonel Norwood was so widely and prominently known, and deep regret was expressed when Colonel Norwood passed away on January 28, 1922. His labors were at all times a most effective force in bringing about the progress and improvement of this section of the country. No good work done in the name of charity or religion sought his aid in vain. He was a man of wide understanding and of keen sympathy, whose influence was ever on the side of right and advancement and his life work was inseparably interwoven with the annals of Oklahoma.
