1834 Letter from Elizabeth Barnard Love
to her sister

Printed below is a June 19, 1835 letter from Elizabeth Barnard Love to h er sister Peggy Young in Burnsville, Yancey County, North Carolina. It w as provided by Belinda Bettis of Hayesville, North Carolina, a Barnard res earcher. Barnard is commonly misspelled "Barnett." Luke Barnard came in to Rabun County while Cherokees were still there. He arrived at a date whi ch appears to be before the date of the arrival of the Dillards (see Jo hn T. Coleman's article above) and had daughters, Sally Barnard (the wi fe of James Dillard), Elizabeth Barnard (wife of Thomas Love), Nancy Barna rd (wife of Doctor Carnes), Margaret (“Peggy") Barnard (wife of Josh ua P. Young), and sons John Barnard (mentioned in John T. Coleman's artic le above as "John Barnett"), Andrew Barnard, and possibly Joseph Barnard.

Thomas Love, the husband of Elizabeth Barnard Love, was a son of Thomas Lo ve and Martha Dillard Love. Martha Dillard Love was a daughter of Thomas D illard, Jr. of Pittsylvania County, Virginia who moved to and died in Wash ington County, North Carolina later Tennessee. This letter gives us a glim pe of how and to what extent our early migrating ancestors kept up with ea ch other (and they did have letters and a post office!), and their pa in in leaving and not hearing from loved ones left behind..

Texas, Texarkana - JAMES WILBURN HARRISON, M.D., died on 17 September 2005 in a local hospital after a brief illness at the age of 87. Dr. Harrison was born in Martin, TN, one of three children of Woodson and Georgia Bailey Harrison. He received his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Tennessee. He was a member of Delta Psi Omega, Alpha Sigma Delta, Phi Chi, and Theta Nu Epsilon fraternities. He completed his medical internship at Nashville General Hospital. In 1942, Dr. Harrison was commissioned as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. In February of 1943, he was ordered to active duty and served for three years in the China-Burma-India and Southwest Pacific theatres, and thereafter served for one year as an Army transport surgeon in the Pacific and Atlantic. At the conclusion of World War II, Dr. Harrison resumed his medical training. He began his residency in obstetrics and gynecology while stationed at Brooke General Hospital, Fort Sam Houston, TX. He then served as Chief of Surgery at the U.S. Army Hospital in Clark Field, Philippine Islands, and was a resident and chief resident at Letterman General Hospital, San Francisco.

Dr. Harrison retired from private practice in 1985 after 50 years of practice. Dr. Harrison's love for the U.S. Army and passion for medical training and public service was again manifested when, in 1969, he became a member of the U.S. Army Reserves, while continuing his private practice in Texarkana.

I wonder how much info you have regarding the divorce of g-g-grandpa Samu el
Allison WATSON from Sarah Elizabeth and their subsequent marriages, s he to Z.
Grant HARRISON, he to Lizzie's sister Mary Talulah (sp?) LARGENT??

[NI4832] From Bob Wilson 10 Feb 2003:

The 1910 Census (Brown Twp., Seminole Co., OK)
states that Thomas is on his fourth marriage while
“Lizzie” is on her first. Other online data indicates
that his prior wife, Amanda J. Millsaps and their two
children all died in 1899-1900 and are buried near
Lexington, OK, right after Thomas and Elizabeth had
their first child, Ruby, in the same location. I’m
guessing that either Thomas and Amanda had split
before Amanda’s death, or possibly Ruby was in fact
Amanda’s daughter but raised by Elizabeth. I have not
any marriage data on Thomas and Elizabeth.

Thanks for a very helpful website!

[NI4938] Eddie Lynn Dunn notes:
** Vera recalls that she often received "whippings" from her step-mother
Mamie. When Vera got older she
once said to her, "I'm not going to take this from you anymore", to whi
Mamie replied, "Then I'm going to
leave", and Tom added, "Would you like me to help you pack?"
** Per Vera, he was frightened of storms, going out to the outhouse duri ng
violent weather. This was due to
his having earlier been in a tornado in which his house had been lifted
off of its foundation.
** Per Vera, he never dated anyone before dating and marrying her mothe
Annie Lizzie.
** He admitted to Vera in later years, following Annie Lizzie's death,
that he had not been as good to his
wife as he should have been.
** Per Vera, he was not a person to show affection. When he would co
her Aunt Nettie's to visit her
(after her mother's death), Vera would cry when he left and he would co
back and spank her for this.
When she was an adult, he admitted to her how wrong this had been. He
never told Vera that he loved her until after she was married.

[NI4939] Eddie Lynn Dunn notes:
** Vera recalls that at her mother's death (Vera was age 4), she was
lifted up to see her body lying on a
"cooling board" (used at that time for displaying the body); however, as
an adult she has tried in vain to
remember her mother's face.
** Vera recalls that when playing outside when her mother was ill and in
bed, she would regularly ask Vera
to come inside to see her to make sure she was behaving herself.
** Per her sister-in-law Nettie, the Tate family did not approve of Tom,
feeling that he was "beneath her".
** Vera reported that her father told her that her mother's last words
before death were:
"Take good care of Vera".

Residence: Upon marriage to Tom, they lived in a log cabin in Gibson
County, TN

Burial: Salem Baptist Church cemetery, near Trenton, TN (between ro ws 13 &

Traditionally Baillie is believed to be a corruption of the once
illustrious name of Bailliol which was changed on account of the
unpopularity of the two Scottish Bailliol kings. Most authorities agree,
however, that Baillie is derived from the office of bailie or bailiff,
being either an officer administering an estate or the equivalent of a
magistrate in a burgh. The earliest record of this name in Scotland
occurs in 1311-12 when one William de Bailli appears as a jury member at
an inquest concerning forfeited lands; he is also recorded as one of the
witnesses to a charter by John de Graham, Lord of Abercom in 1315. There
re a number of prominent families of this name, most notably those of
Lamington, Polkemett, Jerviswood, Dochfour and Dunain. The William de
Bailli mentioned above is believed to be "Baillie of Hoperig", ancestor
of the Baillies of Lamington, who granted the lands of Lamington by Dav
II, with whom he fought at the Battle of Durham. The title, Bailllie of
Lamington, having often been held by females, finally fell vacant in
1880. The Baillies of Dochfour and Dunain in the Inverness area are
descended from a son of the laird of Lamington who fought at the Battle
of Brechin in 1452. The Earl of Huntly awarded his gallantry with the
Dochfour lands. In 1894 Col. James Baillie, member of Parliament of
Inverness, married Nellie Lisa Bass and brought the title of Baron Burt
into the Dochfour family.

Found another record that indicated James died on March 16, 1772. Laura
Larkin, HC 71, Box 227, Princeton, WV 24749 indicates James died on
February 24, 1762. Settled in Henrico County, Virginia and was living
there at the time his son Richard married Anna Belcher.

LANCASTER - A Palatine and maritime county, is bounded on the north by
Cumberland and Westmorland, on the east by Yorkshire, on the south by
Cheshire and Derbyshire, and on the west by the Irish Sea.

The first Earl of Lancaster was Edmund Crouchback, youngest son of Henry
III, In the time of the valiant John of Gaunt, fourth son of Edward, the
county of Lancaster was advanced to the dignity of a palatinate, by a
Royal patent. It confers the title of Duke of Lancaster on the King, and
many other high titles are derived by nobility from this county.

Lancashire has been, at a great variety of periods in history, the scene
of contention and theatre of strife. The sanguinary conflicts between
the Houses of York and Lancaster, and the Royal forces of Charles I, and
those of Parliament under Cromwell, as well as the support which the
Pretender received from the disaffected, have stained the fields of this
county with blood. The Battle of Flodden Field, of more early date, gave
testimony to the prowess of the men of Lancashire and the achievemen
the heroic bowmen and billmen from the districts of Warrington, Wigan,
Rochdale, Preston, Blackburn, Bolton, etc.

A very extraordinary page in Lancashire history must not be omitted - T
Lancashire Witches. In 1594, Ferdinand the fifth Earl of Derby was
seized with mortal sickness, produced probably by poison secretly
administered. After much suffering, he died days later. In his chamber
was found an image of wax with hair the same color as that of the Earl,
stuffed into the belly! In the 1600's, many notorious witches were tried
at Lancaster Assizes.
