Date: About 1860.

Description: Hewn log house; story-and-a-half. With pole kitchen on north

History: James Chisenhall was a son of Laborn Chisenhall and was born in Lee
Co., VA. He came to the Guests River about 1850 and married Jane, daughter
of Lewis and Penelope Day Roberts. Chisenhall was a very tall man and was
noted for his whittling. Anytime and anyplace, when he was engaged in
conversation,

he would bring out his knife and start whittling on whatever was nearest at
hand. The habit resulted in all his chairs being cut and carved in all
manner of shapes. Once, James M. Day, had bought a new wagon. An

acquaintance engaged Chisenhall in talk and he backed up against the wagon
and whittled away on the new wagon bed, doing several dollars damage before
he could be stopped. At his death, his daughter, Annie, wife of John Adams,
inherited the homeplace. She sold it to the Virginia Coal & Iron Company in
1915. A granddaughter, Mrs. Irvine Mullins, now resides as a tenant on part
of the farm.

Notes for Galen Marion Roberts:

The following version of the shot out at Critical Fork was told by Marion
Roberts, A.N. Kilgore and E.J. Bond. Location: On Critical Fork of Guest
River about one mile east of state highway #620, ten miles northwest of Wise
Va. Date: Jan 1 1890. History: Sometime in the summer of 1889 there was a
dance on Hash Hollow of Indian Creek at which place Robert Day and one of
the Gardners had a falling out over a girl. On New Years Day, 1890, the Days
and Roberts met at the home of Ira Roberts on Critical Fork for a shooting
match, the prizes being chickens and turkeys.

Before the match started, but after most of the Day-Roberts clan had
assembled under a large apple tree a few yards west of the Ira Roberts home,
two of the Gardners rode up on a gray horse. John F. Gardner, about 30, was
in the saddle and his brother, Daniel, about 16, was riding behind him.

It is said that John Gardner sprang from his mount, shooting. And in less
than a minute, he had been shot and his back broken with a rifle. In the
meantime, Robert Day, at whom John Gardner had fired, had run away in the
woods, leaving his kinsmen, the Roberts to do the fighting.

It seems that all the Roberts and Day guns were turned on young Daniel
Gardner. When the smoke of battle was lifted, it was found that John
Gardner, (James) Clayton Hunsucker, and Galon Roberts were mortally wounded
while Robert Day, Marion Roberts, Daniel Gardner, and Shadrick Roberts had
been shot.

John Gardner and Clayton Hunsucker died the following night. Galon Roberts
lived three days with a bullet hole through his neck. Daniel Gardner was
shot twenty-seven times and after the fight was over, Miss Peggy Roberts
found him clinging to a limb with one hand and holding his pistol in the
other. His clothes were on fire. Daniel lived until a few months ago (1936),
but finally died of his wounds.

Robert Day, Marion Roberts, and Shadrick Roberts were but slightly injured.
They all recovered and Marion Roberts is still living in (1936), the only
survivor of that fight.

Ira Roberts, one of the principals in the fight, though not wounded, was
indicted and spent a fortune in court cost and attorney fees. He was finally
acquitted and later moved to Taney County, Missouri, where he died in 1935,
age 90.

According to the above article, the year of the feud was 1890, but Wise
County Death records of John F. Gardner, Galen M. Roberts and James C.
Hunsucker prove it occurred in 1891. Submitted by: Paul Kilgore, P~O. Box

of 1210



I'm going to copy some information from a book I own called Davidson and
Related Families:Western Virginia, Eastern Kentucky by Frank Davidson: (I'm
typing it just as it is.)

6. MARY DAVIDSON (DANIEL, JAMES) was born 1774 in Washington County
Virginia, and died Abt. 1850. She married JOHN SAMUEL CORNETT 1802 in
Virginia, son of JOHN CORNETT and ELIZABETH MOSLEY. He was born May 07, 1759
in Henrico Co. Virginia, and died March 12, 1849 in Perry Co. Kentucky.

Notes for MARY DAVIDSON:

Mary Davidson was the oldest child of Daniel Davidson and was born in 1774
in Washington Co. Va. She married after her family left Virginia, migrating
into Kentucky in 1800-01 and settled in what is not Clay, Perry and
Breathitt counties.

They chose the three forks of the Kentucky River as their home-sites. The
North Fork, Middle Fork and the South Fork comprise the head waters of the
Kentucky River. Mary married about 1802 Samuel Cornett born May 7, 1759
probably in Virginia.

It is said that the Cornetts came to Ky before 1800. Samuel's brother
William was a Revolutionary War veteran and they came together into Ky. to
find a home-site.

It is said that the glowing description of the Kentucky Lands with its
abundance of game and land caused the urge to migrate among the Holsten
River settlers of Virginia.

Notes for JOHN SAMUEL CORNETT:

Samuel Cornett died March 12, 1849 in Perry Co. Ky and is buried at Dione
about 10 miles west of Cumberland, Perry County Ky.

After their marriage, Samuel and Mary made their home in Line Fork, in
Letcher Co. Ky. It is thought they raised their family there.

This information is taken from a small book titled the "Cornetts" now owned
by Olen Cornett of Worthington, Ky. I (the author) was able to add a item
from the 1850, 60 and 70 census of Perry and Letcher counties Kentucky.

Samuel and John in this book.)

Notes for John Mullins:

I found this article at my local LDS Center in the Sutherland Collections

PART # 1

John Mullens, old Revolutionary War soldier, 60 years of age, states that

he enlisted in the service of the United States in 1779 for three years.

That he enlisted under the command of Captain Henry Conway who was a

Captain under the command of Col. Ball, who commanded the First Virginia

Regiment. That he was at the taking of Stony Point and continued in the

service of the United States and was in the battle of the Siege of

Charleston, where he was taken prisoner by the British Officer Mounteen,

was taken to England as a prisoner and kept there till peace was made.

That he never had it in his power to return to America for 10 or 11 years,

but after he returned, he received an honorable discharge. He put his

discharge, his certificate for bounty but he, in a short while, became

insolvent and apparently deranged so that I have never received one dollar

for all my services. Said Mullins further states that he is poor and in

indigent circumstances and needs the assistance of his county for his

support, and therefore he prays to be placed on the pension list.

Sworn to in open Court of the said County on May 18th, 1818. His

John X. Mullins mark

John Kelly made oath: That he lives neighbor to John Mullins, the person

who made the above application. That he is a poor man and needs the

assistance of his county. His John X. Kelly mark

Floyd County, Kentucky. On Monday 26th of May 1825, John Mullins appeared

in Court and made declaration on oath: That he is 65 years of age and a

resident of said county. He made affidavit to his services, similar as

above and stated that after he returned from his imprisonment, he received

and honorable discharge from Captain Conway, the Captain under whom he

served. He also received a certificate for Bounty Land and his wages.

That he placed them into the hands of Richard Wm. (?) as above stated and

that after he, William Wan (?), became deranged and insolvent, he has never

gotten his discharge and has not since seen it. He made a list of his

property and stated that he had not, by sale, gift or otherwise, disposed

of his property so that it would bring him within provision of receiving a

pension. He further states that his family consists of his wife, aged

about 50 years, named Nancy, and three children, named John aged 15 years,

Betsy aged 11 years, and Joshua aged 8 years. His wife is very sickly and

infirm and his family is not able to contribute any to his support, worth

naming. His occupation is that of a farmer, buy he is too old to pursue

it. He lives upon a small piece of rented ground and it is with much

difficulty that he gets it cultivated to make bread for his family. That

he made his original declaration, but has not received it. He refers, for

further information, to his former declaration, on file in the
WarDepartment.

Joshua Mullins aged about 63, states that he is well acquainted with the

present applicant, John Mullins, and that he is a brother to the old

solider. That his brother, said John Mullins enlisted and served as he

stated. That he has frequently heard him tell of his experiences in the

service and has heard men who were taken prisoner with the said John

Mullins, tell of John Mullins being with them. That he was taken prisoner

to England with them and kept there until Peace was made. That he placed

his honorable discharge and papers, as stated, into the hands of Richard

Wan (?) and that he thinks his brother John Mullins did not see again,

because Richard Wan (?) was immediately broken up and became insolvent.

Floyd County, Kentucky. Silas P. Wooten, old Revolutionary War solider,

states on oath, before James W. Brown Justice of the Peace, that he is well

acquainted with John Mullins, old Revolutionary War soldier. That he knew

him in the Revolutionary War, for 14 or 15 months, as an enlisted soldier.

And then he was departed from that part of the army in which this deponent

served. He understood afterward that he was taken prisoner by the British,

at the Siege of Charleston, South Carolina.

Letcher County, Kentucky. On this, 6th of May 1841, before Justice of the

Peace in said county, appeared Nancy Mullins, resident of Letcher County,

aged 73 years, who being first sworn, made oath: That she is the widow of

John Mullins, who was a private in the Revolutionary War, and on account of

the Revolutionary services of her late husband, John Mullins, she was

enrolled on the pension rolls of the Kentucky agency.

Nancy (her X mark) Mullins

John Mullins of Floyd County, was inscribed on the roll of Kentucky, to

commence 26th of May, 1823. Certificate of the pension was issued 10th of

September 1823, and sent to Robert Walker, Esq., Prestonburg, Kentucky.

On a separate slip was recorded: John Mullins, died 25th of February,1838.

88. William Roberts, born Bet. 1716 - 1722 in St. Pauls, Baltimore MD; died

Protestant Church, Baltimore, MD.

89. Elinor Mahon, born 1718; died April 26, 1770 in Rowan Co NC.

Notes for William Roberts:

Here is some information I have gathered on my ancestors I would appreciate
your consideration and comments:

#1 William and Elinor Roberts lived in Frederick Co., MD.? VA.? 1749-1754.

[ There is a Frederick Twp. Next door to Whitpane and Gwynedd Twp in Pa. ]

#2 William and Elinor sold 200 a. in Baltimore, MD. 7 Apr. 1757. Then sold
the remaining part of "Friendship completed", 275 a. Baltimore, MD. 9 may
1763.

#3 Edward Roberts [ William's brother or son ] was granted 260 a. in the
forks of the Yadkin near the Boone family.

[ Squire Boone was a Quaker and lived nearby in Bucks Co. Pa. He was
dismissed from the Quaker church for tolerating the marriage of two of his
children outside the Quaker faith. He proceeded to move to the forks of the
Yadkin river in NC. Probably sometime in the 1750's.

#4 William Roberts and wife Elinor were deeded 444 a. on Dutchman's Creek
[ Yadkin tributary ]Rowan Co.,( now Davie ) NC. By the Earl of Granville in
1762.

#5 Roberts, William of 'Patapsco,' in 1750 owned 50 a,, Friendship
(153:84)What is Patapsco?

#6 Roberts, William Baltimore, Friendship Complete 473 01 Apr. 1756
BC5/28;BC7/183

#7 Migrated with brother Edward and families from Gwynedd Twp. or Whitpain
Twp. PA. in 1761( 1751?). ( Both of these areas are just north of
Philadelphia, Pa.)

I have gathered these bits and pieces over some period of time and have the
following comments and questions.

(A) William line was [ William s/o John Jr. s/o John Sr. s/o Andrew ] They
were all from the Baltimore area with Andrew coming from Wales? about 1655.
That would make them living in the Baltimore area over 100 years before
William and Edward took up claims in the North Carolina wilderness. ( why? )

(B) One matter that I am trying to resolve is, were they Quakers? It would
explain why they were persecuted during the revolution in Rowan, NC. They
were put on a list of individuals who were not in favor of the Revolutionary
War. all but Edward were pardoned in 1783 and only Edward's property was
seized and sold. It might also explain why they would sell almost 500 acres
and move, with a large family to the wilderness of North Carolina to begin
with.

(C) Does anyone know anything about Gwynedd township in Pennsylvania. I know
it was a Welsh district. Was it also a strong Quaker settlement? Statement
#7 the date 1761 just might be an error, or can you think of any reason they
would give up there homes in Baltimore, move to Pennsylvania, then back to
North Carolina. Were the Quakers of that day and age like some of the modern
day cults which require you to sell all you own and move to a common area?

(D) I know that the family had a very long term relationship with Saint
Paul's Protestant church in Baltimore. William and Elinor were married there
on 11 Dec. 1735. Was it a Quaker church at sometime? Or did William and
Elinor convert to Quakers at some date?

(E) They had a large family, eleven children. I cannot determine when or
where they were born with the exception of Edward there eldest . the LDS
church lists him as 1735 Gwynedd Twp, Pa,? Since they lived in Baltimore so
long where would I look for some record of there children's births?

Well enough for now, again I would respect your intelligent input. Roy J.
Roberts

108. Jacob Kassel, born 1717 in Lancaster Co PA; died April 01, 1789 in
Holston River, VA. He was the son of 216. Peter Kassel and 217. Catherine
Elizabeth Hubert. He married 109. Sowege.

109. Sowege, born in PA.

Notes for Jacob Kassel:

Jacob Cassel/Castle, had at least eight wives all Cherokee except Sowege,
who was his first wife. Sowege was a Shawnee Indian from PA and the mother
of his first born Jacob, Jr..

Jacob was known as "The Hunter". He was the one of the Earliest Pioneers in
Southwest Virginia and the area called Castlewoods, VA is named for him.
During the French and Indian War, Jacob was accused of Treason by siding
with the Indians, but he was acquitted, though accounts say it was probably
true since he had strong ties to the Cherokee and Shawnee Tribes. Jacob is
mentioned in the Chronicles of Southwest, VA as well as his son Jacob, Jr..
It is often hard to figure out which Jacob they were referring to in the
records themselves. It is not clear how many children Jacob Sr. had, besides
Jacob Jr. there is though to be several more sons and daughters, many of
which lived in the Cherokee communities and may have forsaken the Castle
name for there given Indian names. Two other sons have some evidence as
being a descendent of Jacob. Benjamin Castle and Joseph Castle but it is
unclear if they were his sons with Sowege or one of his other wives. The
time span would suggest Sowege as their mother.

The following excerpt is from the Pennsylvania Berichte, a Germantown
newspaper, published January 6, 1750. "Kassel's wife and children and their
old mother were in the house at the same time. They all survived up on the
collar beam save for a small child whom Peter Kinter's wife had on her lap.
It drowned with them. After daybreak, the others found out that they had
been carried with the upper part of the house for a mile into some woods.
They found a rope and tied it to a tree so that they would not be carried
any further until the waters subsided or someone would come to their rescue.
The "Kassel" mentioned above was probably Jacob Castle.

In December 1785, a group of inhabitants of extreme southwest Virginia
petitioned the government to form the new county of Russell. Among those
signing the petition were: Jacob Castle and Joseph Castle.

i. Jacob Castle, Jr., born 1749 in PA; died Abt. 1849 in VA; married Mary
Shane; born 1747 in Phildelphia, PA; died Abt. 1850 in VA.

Notes for Jacob Castle, Jr.:

Jacob Castle, of Castle's Woods fame, was one of the earliest traders, if
not the first, in SW VA. He was from the New River area and purchased the
Castlewood area from the Indians for a butcher knife and a musket. He
established a trading post at Castlewood, VA where subsequently a fort was
built. Dr. Thomas Walker later began to allot the land to settlers under the
authority of the Royal Governor of VA. Castle was there trading with the
Indians before Boone, Russell and regular settlers came. He had a good
relationship with the Indians and was reputed to be an "albino" by them due
to his light hair, blue eyes, and fair skin which was typical of his
germanic roots. I come from his line and would share. He is not historically
acclaimed like the Boones, Russells, etc, but had been trading in the area
25-30 years before Boone got there and most likely showed Boone the
Cumberland Gap, although Boone took credit for for all his treks without
sharing any of the glory. Castle had

also been in the NC area from whence Boone came, and Boone historically had
been at the fort at Castlewood for some stent of time. Good books for this
is by Kegley "Early Adventures on the Western Waters" in two volumes. Jacob
Castle is my gggggggrandfather and I was reared in the area. Anyone
interested, drop a line.

More About William Jesse Cornett:

Military service: Rev. War

Notes for Mary Everage:

I'm going to copy some information from a book I own called Davidson and
Related Families:Western Virginia, Eastern Kentucky by Frank Davidson: (I'm
typing it just as it is.)

There was a man by the name of Abner Everage that lived in North Carolina.
He enlisted in the Army and went away and was never heard from again. He
left his wife and four children, Joe, Solomon, Nellie and Mary.

The abandoned mother lived with her four children for a few years, enduring
much hardship. One day the two boys Joe and Solomon were strolling about the
place, when they returned to the house they found their two small sisters
tied to the bed post and their mother gone. She was never heard from again.

The neighbors learned about the children being with a mother or anyone to
care for them, they took them into their homes and cared for them until they
could care for themselves.

Soon after the girls were grown up, Mary Everage marred William Cornett the
Revolutionary War Veteran born 1761 and died 1836 in Sullivan County Tenn.
They soon moved to Kentucky. Joe and Solomon came with them. Nellie married
Ben Johnson of Raleigh North Carolina. Joe Everage married Silver Grigsby
and settled on Betty Troublesome of Carrs Fork. Solomon Everage married
Katie Ison and moved to Rowan Co. Ky. He had a son named Samp Everage that
came back to Perry Co. and Married Mary Kelley, a daughter of Nathan Kelly
and went to Arkansas."-Pamela Hatch

Notes for Rebecca Robertson:

I do not believe that Benjamin Robertson was the father of Rebecca
Robertson. I

have all of Rebecca's siblings and none named any of their children
Benjamin.

Which was a very common practice in those days. But two names are used by
all the

siblings; John and Susannah. In fact one even added Robertson as a middle
name -

John Robertson.

In Thomas Robertson's WILL he listed his brothers and sisters as "of the
hold

blood". After Thomas death a girl suit for her part of the estate but lost
because

she was not of the "hold blood". So who remarried - the father or mother and
was

this girl a half sister or step sister???? Just a few things to think about.

Is John and Susannah our Rebecca's parents????

In my book - I added Benjamin to my John Maggard but that has proved also to
be

incorrect.

Notes for James Cock:

A few men from the other Swift militia Musters - called the first and

second lists, but probably later than the ones presented above. This is

only a sampling of the men on these lists. I have included everyone who

was on the 1782 personal tax list. Their absence from the militia roster

may be an indication that they were elsewhere, perhaps serving in the

Regular army. One thing noted with this list, is that the men on it had

fewer possessions. Also, their family names were not found on Regulator

petitions nearly as often and they seem to come from places other than

the North Carolina Piedmont. Very few of the men on the "first" and

"second" Militia musters are on the 1782 Montgomery Co., VA personal tax

lists. I suspect these are mostly young men coming to the area after the

Revolution ended.

COCK, COCKE: James (Lieutenant)

In one database it gives his father as John Cock and his mother as Mary

Elizabeth Goad b. 1726 in North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co., VA. James'

wife is given as Nancy and James died in Lincoln Co., TN. James is said

to have (1) a brother Reuben (b. after 1760) who died 30 June 1840 in

Carroll Co., VA m. Rhoda, (2) a brother Andrew Cock who married Penelope

864. Yelles (Julius) Kasel, born Bef. 1590 in Kriesham, Germany; died 1681
in Germany.

Notes for Yelles (Julius) Kasel:

Notes for Yelles (Julius) Kasel:

Yelles and family lived in hiding most of their lives, moving from town to
town, but Yelles' main residence was Kriesham and Worm, Germany, which are
about six miles apart. Yelles was a Mennonite Minister, a poet of note, and
a farmer.

William Penn, who was later to be known as the founder of Penn's woods, or
what is known today as the State of Pennsylvania, came to speak in 1681 at a
meeting in the city Kassel at Frankfort, when he was 37 years old. He then
went to Kriesham for a meeting. The meeting was held in secret because that
type of religious preaching was forbidden by authorities. Yelles and members
of his family traveled from Worm, Germany, by wagon to attend the meeting.
Mr. Penn spoke of the need for religious freedom. Yelles and other Kassels
present, members of the newly emerging Mennonite Church were so impressed
with Penn's ideas, that they invited Penn to their their home. Penn told
them of the free land that was available in the new world. Two sons of
Yelles Kassel, were the first Cassels to come to America under the terms of
a promise to William Penn. They were Johannes (John) Cassel, with his wife
Mary, and Arnold Cassel. They came on the ship Jefferies and it took seven
months to make the journey. Shortly after Johannes arrived in Germantown, he
learned that a large legacy was left his family, through the death of a
relative, amounting to nearly one million dollars. It was necessary for them
to return to Germany to claim the legacy. A church council was called to
discuss the matter. it was decided unanimously to not receive the money, as
it would make them proud. Johannes signed the original charter of
Germantown, Pennsylvania, where he lived the rest of his life. - FTM website
