Discussing JHATOR at UCC in Norwell, MA

JHATOR was chosen as the summer read for the book club at the United Church of Christ in Norwell, MA.  Today, the Rev. Deborah Spratley hosted an author's brunch and discussion of the book with me and members of both the book club and writer's group at the church.One of the first things I learned from the group members, who are approaching the book from a Christian POV, is that starting the book with Anat, the vulture, was unsettling for most of them.  Of course, that is the point of Chapter…See More

Garren's Civil War research

I am Terrell Garren and I am searching for documents, photographs and other information pertaining to Confederate soldiers known as Junior Reserves. In the last year of the American Civil War seventeen year olds were drafted and sent to the Confederate Army. Many were captured before being officially assigned to regiments. Those not captured became part of what was known as the First Regiment North Carolina Junior Reserves. There were at least two hundred such boys from our area.

Thanks for spending so much time answering my note. This all sounds right down my alley as I read all I can about the Cherokee and/or the Civil War. I had no luck finding the blog you mentioned so if you don't mind sending it, my email is destinyranch3@yahoo.com

I will certainly be buying your books that you mentioned.

Thanks again,

Ken

I"m used to people talking to me like that. lol. Thanks for your book list. I read somewhere recently, like maybe the Mtn.Xpress, that you had written a book about "Cherokee History" but I must be hallucinating. I'm sorry I can't recall exactly where I read it. Thanks, Ken

My Hall ancestors, five brothers to be exact, served with Thomas's Legion and Company C, 39th Infantry Regiment. Merryman Hall, James B. Hall, Moses I. Hall and Burton Kimsey Hall were all imprisoned at Fort Delaware prison camp. Merryman died while imprisoned. James and Moses were released eventually and Burton released a little over a year later. I do not know how he survived. Burton is the only one I have a photo of in his confederate uniform. According to records at Fort Delaware, they were captured Feb. 18th, 1864. Their brother John A. Hall died in 1862 while serving in Lenoir, TN of disease.

Hi Terrell,

I'm a fellow Henderson-County product, and I'm working on a book about the area, largely centering on Bearwallow Mountain. I'm trying to track down information about Colonel Palmer's trip up the mountain during his part in Stoneman's Raid. I know that you fictionalized his trek in The Secret of War, and I wondered if you had tracked down journals or other records of his time with Bearwallow in researching and writing your novel.

I appreciate any direction you can provide, and I'd love to pick your brain at some point about the area and my project (mostly about land use and identity). I live in Charleston, but I'm up to Hendersonville occasionally visiting family. Feel free to get back at me through this site, or more directly at jeremybjones3@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Hi Terrell,
Email me directly at dawnmarie@citcom.net and I'll send you my McCall database in Word format. My 4th great grand uncle was David Garren who married Margaret Whitaker, then I have Theo Jesse Garren who married Maybelle Frisbee and she was a 5th cousin to me. Then, there is "Uncle" Henry Garren who married Lillie Smathers. As to the McCall line, Sarah Ellen Garren, daughter of Silas Garren and Jane Case married James Gaston McCall, son of Robert McCall and Rachel Glazener. I have transcribed a copy of Silas' will and can send you a copy if you do not already have it... it is in my database as well. Actually, Samuel McCall is both mine and my husband's 5th grandfather... with Kenneth descending directly through the McCall line and my line being through the Glazener's. Anyway... email me and I will be glad to send you what I have.

Terrell,
My apologies for not getting back to you before now. I married into the McCall family in Transylvania County, which as I'm sure you know is kin to the Garren family. I grew up in Etowah, but in the last few years I have focused on my Buncombe/Madison county lineages and have published a book on the family and descendants of Captain Edmund Sams of Buncombe County which I am currently revising.
It may be of interest to you that where I grew up in Etowah, on Brickyard Road was property originally owned by Henry Judson Garren. My great grandmother's second husband, Sylvanus Smathers bought the property from Henry and when Vanus died, it was left to her (Wrinda Boyd Merrell Smathers). From grandma Wrinda it went to my grandmother, Jessie Merrell Jiles. My half-uncle ended up with it (a long and not so nice story) and though it was supposed to go to my son, my half-uncles wife ended up with it and sold it to the Etowah Lion's Club. I still have the deed from "Uncle" Henry to Vanus.
Anyway... now that I have written a mini-novel (seems to be a habit with us writers (smile), I will go... but if I have any info that I can share with you, will be glad to do so.

Terrell I think you have me mixed up with Linda L Ross who is indeed a member of the Garren family. She left a post for you..and some phone numbers too..

Hello Terrell Garren

I know you are a Civil War Historian and I wondered if you had ever seen this poem. It was about how Stonewall outflanked the Angels and got into Heaven before them..
It had this line..."The Angels waiting on the other side blew for him tlll their trumpets burst but he slipped so fast around their flanks that he got into Heaven first.." Have you ever seen this poem? I have searched the internet for it..Just wondering..Sallie
