Mom in Her Writing Nook ...

She was working on the "About the Authors" section of "Echoes Across the Blue Ridge" when I captured this one morning. Though you can't see it, her coffee cup was within gentle reach that morning. Roxie is at her feet.

Family of Arthur Edwin Guest and Dorothy Galloway Guest

Today I received a rather large package from Iowa that contains old photos of the family of Arthur Edwin Guest and wife, Dorothy Galloway Guest, along with old letters and other misc papers.

Arthur died in 1994 in Buncombe County and Dorothy died in 1969 in Buncombe County. From census records they were in Iowa up until 1930... then they are found living in New Jersey. I am not sure when they came to Buncombe County.

I would like to find living descendants of this couple, or…

Dawn, I found my great grandmother Nancy Goldsmiths brother , I believe it was Yancey Goldsmith, living with Nimrod Buckner, who was either his Uncle or his grandfather. Anyway I found that Nimrod's father was one Jesse Buckner, so I know that Jesse Buckner was either my Mary Buckner (Goldsmith)'s father or grandfather..Am I making sense.Anyway I would love to see your record of your Buckner's. My Buckner family came from Northern Buncombe or else Transylvania county.

Dawn I would love to see your ancestry link from Jesse Buckner. I know that my Nancy Goldsmith was either Jesse Buckner and Mary Tatum or Mary Sam's grand daughter or maybe daughter. Sallie..

Hello Dawn,

That is some interesting stuff. Yes, I know a lot of these "stories" that are not so nice. Families around here have their share of infighting. I'd love to know more about how your Garren's are connected to mine but I think it goes back to when Transylvania was part of Henderson County. Anyway, I'd love to see your book when you finish.

I'm working on several different things that might be of interest to you.

Are you related to the McCalls in Henderson County? I've studied lots of Civil War records. There must be at least forty, maybe fifty McCalls in the Confederate Army.
