Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

Tar heel Roots in Sedro Woolley Washington



I am a transplanted "Tar heel". I have never forgotten my Western North Carolina roots, and although I have lived in California for a good portion of my life, I still consider Western North Carolina as "home."

In August of 1981, after my Dad's memorial service, a group of family members went out to eat at a family style restaurant in…

I never really studied this photo

The photo is of Rebecca Rogers 03 Jun 1838-18 Sep 1910 along with some of her family members,

My grandmother is not shown in this photo..I think it must have been in the 1800's some time because

I have a photo of Rebecca where she is very chubby and her hair is very white. My grandmother was born in

1870 and I believe that Mary Jane Elizabeth Rogers Hooper was born in 1880..(she would have been the baby)

and Roberta Rogers was born in 1877.…

From, " Experiences of A Pedagogue in the Carolina Highlands" by Prof. Madison

There was a series of articles published in the Asheville Citizen in the 70's or maybe the 60's . I was able to look at a couple of these articles when I visited the Hunter Library at WCU in Cullowhee. I found two articles that mentioned my grandfather Will Miller, and even my great grandmother Margaret (Keener) Miller. The staff at the Hunter Library were unbelievably helpful. Wish I could have stayed longer.

I have enclosed copies of the articles, which the…

John Ehle has so many great books. Yes two were made into movies. My husband has know him a long time and we are big fans of his. John is a great writer and has done so much for NC. We just joined the Read on WNC as we did not know it was out there. I just re-read Last One Home again after many years, some great characters.  My husband has a novel coming out next year (set in Hot Springs NC in 1917) and John was very helpful. We both grew up near Asheville so are thrilled to have this contact for the literary world there.

If I am related to the General, it is very distant and I've not proven the connection. My dad served in WW II and drove the General's Jeep on several occasions. After surviving action at Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge, and Huertgen Forest, Dad was hit by shrapnel while on a routine reconnaissance mission. After surgery in a field hospital in Germany, he was transferred to a hospital in Brittain where General Bradley visited him. Dad was so impressed by that act that he named me for General Bradley. Nelson Bradley was actually named for Morgan L. Neilson, MD- an early Buncombe County physician. While his given name is listed as Neilson or Nelson M. Bradley on Census records, his name at birth was Doctor Morgan Neilson Bradley. According to my great uncle, he always went by "Nelson" Bradley.

Sallie,
It is a pleasure reading your comments. We share some common ancestry and history. My great great grandfather Alexander Bradley married Elizabeth Goldsmith, the sister of your William Goldsmith. There is some speculation that Alexander's brother Johnathan was a victim of the Shelton Laurel Massacre. He was returning home at the time from Tennessee and disappeared. One of his shoes was found later but neither he nor his body was ever located. Wilma Dykeman, one of the great historical writers of western North Carolina and Tennessee, was a descendant of Alexander Bradley and Elizabeth Goldsmith. Her historical novel, "The Tall Woman" is about her Bradley, Ballard, and Cole ancestors.

Thank you Sallie,
I will look forward to receiving additional information from you. I have information on and photos of Hester Jane Goldsmith, daughter of John Turner Goldsmith and Naomi Bryan corn if you are interested?

It is actually my Grandmother, Delores Campbell whose Great Great Grandfather was John Goldsmith, and you are right! John Turner Goldsmith did Mary Naomi Corn! I have been trying to do my Grandma's genealogy for her, and her aunt Sammie. Sammie lives in California , as well as my Grandma. I did a google search and saw your story and could not believe it! I am so excited! Hopefully we can collaborate to get all the proper information on our families! Exciting!
At 1:18pm on February 3, 2010, Summer Campbell-Kelsch said…
My Great Great Great grandfather William Goldsmith had a son named John Turner Goldsmith. That would mean your Great great Grandpa and mine were brothers! My Grandma is so excited! She lives in California as well, but Santa Rosa. I hope to hear from you!

Sallie,
Email me directly at dawnmarie@citcom.net and I'll send you what I have in my databases in Word format. I certainly know how hard it is to verify your research when you live so far out of state. I was very blessed to have a lady in Missouri helping me with records that I needed on my Sams line and now, since publishing my first book, people who have bought it have gotten in touch with me with old family photos, bible records and all kinds of goodies! With their permission, I am doing a revised edition to add the things that have been shared. So, I am always willing to help those who live out of state with Buncombe County look-ups.
At 9:48pm on October 23, 2009, Dawn McCall said…
Sallie,
Was reading through posts this evening and noticed your on the Buckner and Freeman families and I also have those in my lines. My 6th great grandfather was Jesse Buckner who married Martha Lee. I descend down through their daughter, Aquilla who married Charles West. I will be glad to send you the info from my Buckner and Freeman databases if you like. I live in Transylvania County, NC and go to Asheville at least once a month to do research there at the library and courthouse and can help you with look-ups.

Sallie thanks for your time and information.
