Country Churches and Cemeteries in North Carolina

While at our daughter's home in North Carolina we took several excursions along the back roads while "leaf peeping". We saw many little churches and cemeteries. I'd like to show you some of my favorites.

This pretty little church on the hill was having a worship service that morning. We couldn't see any cars at first, but as we drove up the drive and circled around toward the back, we saw the parking lot full of cars. I hope we didn't disturb anyone.


All of the tombstones were slanting toward the top of the hill and the church. There were several square stones placed in the ground on an angle. The one in this picture at the end of the row has a child's name (last name Green) with his day of birth and day of death. I also saw some of this same type of marker in the St. Thomas Episcopal Church cemetery in Bath, North Carolina.

This seemingly abandoned church with the red door had a sign that said, "Open for Prayer Daily." This was on a Sunday afternoon somewhere around the little community of Todd.

North Creek Primitive Baptist Church, Service 3rd Sunday, Established 1742

Mount Olive Church of Christ
Just outside of Bell Haven on the way to the Outer Banks

Right outside of Bell Haven we were stopped at a routine traffic stop. Out in the middle of nowhere! My daughter decided after that she should stop and attach her new license plate sticker before we saw another highway patrol. We pulled over in Mount Olive's parking lot and we took pictures while she worked on the plate.


One of the prettiest churches we saw was the New Sharon Methodist Church in Hillsborough, North Carolina, which is my son-in-law's family church. This is the cemetery where his grandfather is buried. These two pictures were taken late in the afternoon.

North Carolina Churches, Barns and Buildings

North Carolina is beautiful this time of year. Of course, leaf-peeping is an activity that a lot of you are familiar with, but my cousin had very little exposure to when the two of us decided to at last fly away on one of American’s best, Flight 300, and visit that beautiful state. We were picked up at RDU by my daughter and two granddaughters on a beautiful, crisp day in the middle of October.

My daughter was a great sport. She entertained, accommodated, made sacrifices and “turned around” at every missed country road we wanted to go down! We took picture after picture of old country churches, cemeteries, and broken down barns and buildings. We had a great time. Thank you, daughter-o’-mine!

The pictures above are of buildings in Valle Crucis near the Mast General Store that is shown in the third photo. While there we all enjoyed going into the Candy Barrel and buying something for our sweet tooth! The day was cold and wet but we enjoyed every minute. Once we were back on the road we ate candy and had my daughter turning around every chance we got.






Only two of about eight barns we saw with quilt blocks painted on them. I fell in love with them but didn't have the heart to ask my daughter to stop for every one. They were in the Boone area near the Blue Ridge Parkway.



This pretty white clapboard church was in the historic town of Bath, the first incorporated town in North Carolina on the Pamlico Sound. It was the Bath Christian Church.

In the distance you could see this beautiful little building, St. Thomas Episcopal Church, the oldest existing church building in the state, construction having begun in 1734 by the Rev'd John Garzia. There is a small cemetery with tombstones dating to the 1820s and evidence of burials beneath the floor of the existing church.

In Swan Quarter we passed this older church that was across the street from the new one below.

Cranberry Salad


If you read the post about my cousin, Julie Martin, you will know that she sent me a surprise Christmas present last year – a box of canned Bing Cherries. This is my husband, Bob’s, favorite dessert. If I don’t have or can’t find Bing Cherries I will make the Cranberry Salad shown below. I think it is just as good. Maybe you will try them both and you decide!



I usually make this version of Cranberry Salad at Christmas because I can rarely find the sweet Bing cherries called for in the Coca Cola salad. This makes a FULL LARGE rectangular Pyrex dish 9 x 14 or something like that.

Ingredients:
3 regular packages cherry or strawberry Jell-O
3 cans whole berry cranberry sauce
1 #2 can crushed pineapple and juice

Dissolve Jell-O with 3 cups boiling water. Let cool. Do not let it get firm. Add cranberry sauce and drained pineapple. Divide mixture in 2 parts. Put half in large oblong Pyrex dish and congeal. After it has congealed, spread with mixture of the following:

12 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
½ cup pineapple juice


Add ½ cup chopped nuts to remaining half of cranberry mixture. Pour over cream cheese and place in refrigerator again to congeal.

Pretty and good!

Coca-Cola & Bing Cherry Salad


Here is the Coca Cola salad Bob's mother used to make - very sketchy directions but you get the idea. This is also the recipe that uses the Bing Cherries that my cousin, Julie Martin, mailed to me at Christmas.


Ingredients:


1 pkg. Raspberry Jell-O

1 pkg. Cherry Jell-O

2 cans Bing cherries, sweet (drained)

1 small can crushed pineapple (drained, saving some for cream cheese topping)

1 cup nuts

2 bottles coca cola (cold)
She used coke that was sold in individual glass bottles. I imagine they held about same amount as our canned drinks of today.

Congeal

Then mix one 4 oz. pkg. cream cheese with a small amount of pineapple juice.

Sprinkle walnut or pecan pieces to top.

Tastes great!

Enjoy!

Searching for Arthurs near Ducktown, Tennessee

On top of a mountain near Sylco, Tennessee looking at the Ocoee River

This is in the Cherokee National Forest just northwest of Ducktown. Bob and I were on the road to the old Arthur Community and the Sylco Cemetery. It was a beautiful place.

Photos taken April 30, 2003 by Judy Shubert

No, we didn't find the Sylco Cemetery. I think that it may be overgrown by now or maybe we made a wrong turn somewhere. But like Linda Kay tells me, "Judy, you KNOW they're not there." She loves to tease me about my hunting out cemeteries!

A Miner’s Shoes and Overalls

We spent the night in Ducktown and decided to go to a museum we ran across. These miner’s shoes and overalls were found in the Burra Burra Mining Museum. Just around the corner from this display was an entrance to one of the mining shafts. Those miners had more stamina and guts than I have!

This photo was taken inside the Mining Museum at the Copper Basin in Ducktown, Tennessee. The man giving Bob and I the tour gave me permission to take the photo. He said the workers in the mines were a happy lot and most of the copper mining accidents were single occurances, not accidents that will trap several men at one time as you see in the coal mines because they are mined differently. Bob had asked about that because his great-grandmother's younger brother died in the Muscat mine in 1910. He was only around 28 years old. (More about that later.)



This is a closer look at those folks in the previous picture. Just wish their faces were clearer!

Bob said he felt we were in a time-warp!

Imagine our surprise to round one of those horse-shoe turns up on top of the mountain near Ducktown, Tennessee and see this coming toward you. They were so nice and hated that they "couldn't rightly tell us where that Arthur cemetery was".

I lightened the photo up some trying to see the 2 gentlemen a little better.

You can't imagine how excited I was when I first saw them coming down the road. This reminded me of our ancestors coming across the plains in those Prairie Schooners. There is a story about Grandpa Harvey Puckett and Grandma Alice and Indians and camping overnight! That story reminds me, too, of these two gentlemen. You can find that story in Chapters 1 and 2 of Irene Gailey Stone's Memories – “Grandma in Her Bonnet.”

Henry Milton (Mitchell) Shubert - March 07, 1839-June 01, 1915

Back of Photo reads: Nancy Ann Shubert
Blaine Plemons, cousin
Henry Shubert

My search for the Shubert ancestors began with my husband’s great-great-grandfather, Henry “Mitt” Shubert. The search was compelling because my husband’s father told us he had come to the United States from Austria in 1842 when he was a small child. The combination of Austria and the name Shubert was intriguing enough to make me long to find proof of this, even though at the time I knew nothing of genealogy and researching various documents and census records.

The search led me to South Carolina and a Robert Shoebird and his wife, Lydia. My father-in-law had never seen a copy of any census and when I showed him the copy of the microfiche page where Robert and Lydia’s names appeared he nearly cried. He was amazed. He said, “There, that’s (Milton) my great-grandfather.” He knew and had already given me all of the other names of the children and parents that appeared in the census. I felt that was a pretty good indication that I had the right family. But, then again, I was new at genealogy.

This census record seemed to prove to us that Mitt was not born in Austria, but in Tennessee; that his father and mother were born in South Carolina, unless they fabricated a story for the census taker. I have not been able to track them further back than this 1850 census.

A photo given to my husband by Loma Schubert Rodgers has Blaine Plemons, "cousin", with Henry M. Shubert and Nancy Ann Parks Shubert. This could be the son of Nancy's daughter, Carrie, and L.M. Plemons. The photo shows Mitt in what the owner of the picture called his military uniform. He did serve in the Civil War with the Union Tennessee Volunteers.

Nancy Ann Parks Shubert was Henry’s second wife whom he married April 04, 1881 in Loudon County, Tennessee, after Henry’s first wife (my husband’s great-great-grandmother) Mornan Matilda Jenkins, died on November 03, 1878.

The 1890 Civil War Veterans census indicated that a Nancy A. was to receive benefits. Nancy A. was 10 years younger than Henry. Her daughter, Dialtha Parks, by her previous marriage to James Parks was married to Henry's son, Jacob Pearson Shubert. Another of Nancy's daughters, Carrie Parks, married L.M. Plemons.

My husband and I have spent many hours looking for information and learning about this very interesting family. Family tidbits picked up here and there to be shared with you as time goes by.

Robert Shoebird Born in South Carolina in 1805

According to the 1850 census Robert Shoebird was born in South Carolina in 1805 and married Lydia Reynolds, born in 1807 in South Carolina. The information given to the census taker may have been given by a child in the home. It listed the following children of Robert Shoebird and Lydia Reynolds and their age:

1850 Roane Co. Census, 248-259, P. ff 339, 30 Aug. 1850
SHOEBIRD, Robert, 45, Male, born SC
Lydia, 43, Female, born SC
Elizabeth, 15, Female, born TN
Nancy, 12, Female, born TN, Deaf
Fanny, 10, Female, born TN
Milton, 8, Male, born TN
Daniel, 6, Male, born TN
Margaret, 4, Female, born TN
Elvira, 1, Female, born TN

The birth year of all of Robert and Lydia Shoebird's children except Milton was calculated based on the above census information. Henry M.'s birth year was listed in Family Bible as 1839 which would have made him 11 on this census.

The Sevier County census of 1840 shows Robert Shubird on p. 188 and Charles Shubird on p. 184.
1840 Sevier Co. Census (No date or numbers noted.)
SHUBIRD, Robert, 30-40, b. 1800-1810

Enhanced Indexes to the U. S. Censuses

FamilySearch and Ancestry.com Team to
Publish New Images and Enhanced Indexes to the U.S. Censuses

This announcement has already been posted on other genealogy blogs. I ran across it tonight on The Accidental Genealogist blog at http://theaccidentalgenealogist.blogspot.com/

SALT LAKE CITY—Ancestry.com and FamilySearch, the two largest online family history resources, announced today they will exchange records and resources to make more historical records available online. The first project is a joint initiative to significantly enhance the online U.S. Federal Census Collection (1790 to 1930). The original census records are among the holdings of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

FamilySearch is digitally converting master microfilm copies of the original U.S. Federal Censuses from 1790 through 1930 and, under this agreement, will give these improved images to Ancestry.com. All census images and indexes will be available on Ancestry.com for subscribers. As projects are completed, images will be available for free in NARA reading rooms and FamilySearch’s 4,500 Family History Centers.

Ancestry.com, which currently offers indexes and images to the entire publicly available U.S. Federal Census Collection, will give FamilySearch copies of its existing census indexes. Through its online indexing system and community of volunteer indexers, FamilySearch is already indexing select censuses. FamilySearch will merge the Ancestry.com indexes with the new FamilySearch indexes to create enhanced census indexes, which will be added to both sites. Indexes to the enhanced censuses will be free on Ancestry.com for a limited time as they are completed. Indexes will also be available for free on FamilySearch.org.

Allen Weinstein, the Archivist of the United States, welcomed this agreement as a significant benefit for researchers. He remarked that, “Census records are among the most important documents the American people have to trace their genealogy and know their family history. Having two of our partners working together to enhance the indexes and images of these essential documents will enable an unprecedented level of access and understanding.”
