Civil War Families of Tennessee seeks to identify and honor the sacrifices of the valiant soldiers on each side of the nation’s greatest conflict. By entering your ancestor, you will pay tribute to his service and assure that his contributions are remembered. Most importantly, you can help identify and preserve special family artifacts, diaries, photographs, and documents for the benefit of future generations.

The United States government published lists of its employees roughly every two years from 1816 to 1914 usually as ARegisterofOfficersandAgents,Civil,Military,andNavalintheServiceoftheUnitedStates or a variant on this title. State and country of birth appears for most of the Federal employee in the editions for September 1816, 1819, 1821, 1823, and 1825, including for most of the thousands of deputy postmasters across the country. As the men and women who filled these positions were usually local people old enough to have important political connections, they often were not likely to have lived long enough to appear in the 1850 census. This information often appears nowhere else. Major research librar-ies and archives have sets of these books although often on microfiche. The free web site Google Books includes the 1816 edition of this series.

For other sources for information on Federal employees see Claire Prelchtel-Kluskens, “Documenting the Careers of Federal Employees,” Prologue:TheQuarterlyoftheNationalArchives 26 (1994): 180-83 and GenealogicalandBio-graphicalResearch:aSelectGuidetoNARAMicrofilm, available on the Internet at http://www.archives.gov/publications/microfilm-catalogs/biographical/. Holdings discussed in the latter publication include autobiographical applications for Federal jobs from presidents John Adams through U. S. Grant. Each of the booklets accompanying the respective mi-crofilm for each administration includes an alphabetical list of the applicants. These records frequently mention personal history and connections. Applications to individual departments, such as Justice, State, Treasury, War etc. for employment have not been microfilmed and must be searched for in person or by mail from the National Archives and Records Admin-istration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, Maryland 20740-6001. Before the modern advent of the civil service exams, local political bosses chose postmasters; any of those applications have not survived.

Some other sources for place of birth for this period include Kenneth Scott, BritishAliensintheUnitedStatesduringtheWarof1812 (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, 1979) and National Archives microfilm M233 RegisterofEnlistmentsintheU.S.Armyfor1798-1914. The latter microfilm is reproduced on the subscription website Ancestry.com as “U. S. Army, Register of Enlistments, 1798-1914” and can be electronically searched by name. The soldiers born in or serving from Virginia during the War of 1812 from that microfilm appear in Stuart Lee Butler, VirginiaSoldiersintheUnitedStatesArmy1800-1815 (Athens, Ga., 1986).

Persons born in Tennessee or working in Tennessee appear below with their respective jobs, place of birth, and resi-dence. Not included here are the names of persons without place of birth given. The year or years of publication of the register[s] where the information can be found appears in brackets. These publications also include the annual pay to each employee. President James Madison (born Virginia), employed United States, for example, received $25,000 per year in 1816.

The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was an organization for Union veterans of the Civil War founded in Decatur, IL on April 6, 1866. At its peak in 1890, there were 8,652 posts with 409,489 members nationwide, who held meetings and sponsored reunions. At the last encampment in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1949, 16 veterans attended. Further information is available at the SonsofUnionVeteransoftheCivilWarweb page (suvcw.org/gar.htm).

The Calvin M. McClung Collection of the Knox County Public Library has two volumes of the original rosters of the Tennessee chapters. These are titled “Descriptive Records, Department of Tennessee G.A.R.” Both volumes are available on microfilm. The index is by chapter name and number and by location.

There is no master index for these volumes, and researchers will find individuals listed only under the names of their posts. Entries are on pre-printed pages and include space for information such as name, age, birthplace, residence, occupa-tion, entry into service, final discharge, related information, when and where died, where buried and remarks. The extent of the personal information actually supplied, however, varies considerably. For some posts, it is incomplete for part and sometimes all of the membership.

The transcriptions prepared for TennesseeAncestors includes the most pertinent of the personal information given. Ab-breviations: R=Regiment; V=Volunteer; M=Mounted; I=Infantry; C=Cavalry; A=Artillery; B=Battery; HA=Heavy Artillery

Transcriptions of two chapters of the Tennessee rosters were previously published in TennesseeAncestors: Post No. 1-George H. Thomas, Nashville, Davidson County (Volume 3 #2, December 1986); and Post No. 33-G.L. Williams, Union City, Tennessee, Obion County (Volume 1 #2). Transcriptions resumed in Volume 17 and will continue until all posts have been published.

Col. John J. Craig was born in Florence, Ala., Sept. 20th, 1820, died, July 31st, 1892, in Knoxville, Tenn. He was the youngest of a large family; his mother died leaving him an infant. He never knew what it was to have a mother care for him in his childish trials and sympathize with him in his sorrows; yet he grew up with the tenderest sensibility of a woman’s nature. He received just such an education as the country and a well to-do father afforded, but his best education was his constant association with the most refined people, the reading of the best books and periodical literature of the times.

His father married the second time, and the young man left the parental roof to seek his fortune among comparative strangers. He did not long remain a stranger, however, as his pleasing manners and gentlemanly bearing soon made friends amongst such people as it was pleasant and profitable to know. He went into the house of Messrs. Wallace, McClung & Co., on his arrival in Knoxville. He remained with this firm for several years and gained the confidence and esteem of all who knew him.

May 10th, 1848, he married Mary C. Lyon, daughter of Capt. William Lyon, one of the oldest and best known families in this State. Their married life was one of perfect happiness and continued in this relation over forty-five years; a beautiful illustration of how two persons can contribute to each other’s happiness. During all these forty-five years Col. Craig never failed to remember the 10th of May as one that had brought him so much happiness. For years they had annual celebrations of their marriage at the place where they first met, and each year Col. Craig presented the Lones Institute with some handsome present. Several years ago he presented the Institute with a beautiful bell with the understanding that on the 10th of each May the bell should be rung to commemorate his happy marriage day. The influence of his devoted wife’s constant religion was a living power with her husband; leading him gently and lovingly over the rough places and temptations of the world.

Col. Craig was a man of spotless life, pure as a woman and as decided as a man who knew his own mind and dared to do what he knew to be right. His views of life were exalted; regardful of others as he would have others regard him; in a word, he was a gentleman of the Old School. He came to Knoxville the second time, in 1854, as cashier of the Union Bank of Ten-nessee, and continued in that position until the bank closed on account of the war. Afterwards he was engaged in business in Cincinnati and New York, but returned to his own adopted home in 1869 and spent the remainder of his life among those who loved him for his worth. He was the pioneer of the marble industry of Tennessee.

Col. And Mrs. Craig had born to them seven children, only three living to mature years: Mrs. W. B. McMullen, W. L. Craig and John J. Craig, Jr., all residing in this city.

He had an exalted idea of life and its duties, and his last days gave us full evidence of the purity of his life. For five long weeks he was a patient sufferer, awaiting the end with a calm resignation; willing to meet his maker, feeling fully satisfied in his own mind that he was ready to go. Kind friends kept him constantly reminded of their affection by sending a profusion of beautiful flowers each day. He often spoke of their kindness and expressed the hope that he would meet them in the beautiful beyond, and sending them loving messages of gratitude. While his journey through this vale of tears is ended, we feel confi-dent that his noble soul is resting peacefully in that beautiful home—the abode of the Pure and Just.

The following biographies of the John James Craig, John James Craig, Jr., and John James Craig III are from the book HeartoftheValley: AHistoryofKnoxville,Tennessee, pp. 510-512, edited by Lucile Deaderick, 1976, and published by the East Tennessee Historical Society.

Craig,JohnJames (Sept. 20, 1820 – July 31, 1892), pioneer marble dealer and quarrier, was born in Lauderdale County, Ala., and came to Knoxville in 1839. He married Mary C. Lyon (1820 – 1904), of Knox County, whose family home was where Eastern State Psychiatric Hospital is now located on Lyons View Pike. For a while he was cashier of the Union Bank in Knoxville. In 1858 he began the construction of a house, named Lucknow, which was designed by an eastern architect and situated on a broad hill of eleven acres not far from East Tennessee University. The building was almost completed when the Civil War broke out. John J. Craig sold the house and went to Cincinnati and later to New York. (After the war Oliver P. Temple bought the property from Thomas J. Powell and renamed it Melrose.) In 1869 the John J. Craig family returned to Knoxville. The first John J. Craig and Company, quarries and dealers in marble, began in 1878; the city directory for 1882 lists the office location as Gay and Main streets. Children (who grew to maturity) of John J. and Mary (Lyon) Craig were W. L. Craig (1854 – 1904), John J. Craig, Jr. (1860 – 1904), and Mary (Mamie) Craig (Mrs. W.B. McMullen). The Craigs were buried in Old Gray Cemetery.

Craig,JohnJames,Jr� (Sept.20, 1860 – Oct. 10, 1904), marble dealer and quarrier, was born in Knox County. He was educated at East Tennessee University and at Queen City Commercial College. He married Lucy H. Cage (1863 – 1927), a native of Canton, Miss. During his early career he was associated in the banking business in Canton, Miss., and in Hel-ena, Ark. On his return to Knoxville in 1886 he engaged in the marble business with his father. John J. Craig, Sr., built up the business until it was among the largest of its kind in the South; after separating from the Tennessee Producers Marble

Company, the John J. Craig Company was reorganized in 1896 and has continued operations ever since. The family resi-dence was at 1415 Highland Ave. Children of John J. Craig, Jr. and Lucy (Cage) Craig were John J. Craig, III (1885 – 1944), Lucile Craig (1887 – 1904), Albert Lyon Craig (1893 – 1953), and Emily Craig (Mrs. William Jay Donaldson).

Craig,JohnJamesIII (Feb. 17, 1885 – July 18, 1944), marble quarrier and dealer, was born in Canton, Miss. He was educated in the public schools of Knoxville but did not attend college because of the early death of his father. He worked in the family business as secretary and treasurer for a while, becoming president in 1914 and holding that office until his death in 1944. The Candoro Marble Company was born in 1914 as a marble manufacturing plant to saw and finish the marble blocks being quarried by the John J. Craig Company. The two companies always have been closely affiliated, and now (1975 ) they are consolidated, with the John J. Craig Company as the parent company and Candoro Marble Company as a wholly-owned subsidiary. They controlled quarries in Knox, Blount, and Loudon counties, and became the nation’s foremost producer of Tennessee pink marble and one of the largest importers of marble in the United States. They have furnished marble for buildings in Knoxville and in other cities. In Knoxville these include the U.S. Post Office (Main Avenue), State Office building (617 Cumberland Ave.), Criminal Court Building (South Gay Street), and interior marble for some University of Tennessee buildings. In Washington, D.C., several buildings were constructed of marble from Craig quarries: the Smith-sonian’s Museum of History and Technology, American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations Head-quarters, Australian Chancery, and, most notably, the National Gallery of Art, the largest marble building in the world. Two other marble producers of Knoxville also furnished marble for the last-named building, which was designed by the New York architectural firm of John Russell Pope. Representing this firm in the selection of marble was Malcolm H. Rice, who came to Knoxville for this task in the late thirties. Mr. Rice’s daughter, Joan, later married John J. Craig IV. In 1971, Mr. Rice again selected Craig and other marbles for an addition to the National Gallery of Art.

The home of John J. Craig III and his family was at 6406 Westland Drive (which had been part of the old Lyon property), built in 1926 and designed by Barber and McMurry. He was a member of the Second Presbyterian Church, as preceding generations of the Craig family were. He was buried in Highland Memorial Cemetery. His widow, Mrs. Louise (Lennon) Craig, served as president of the companies for several years. There were two sons: John J. Craig IV, who became president about 1954 and still serves in that capacity; and William Donaldson Craig, who was killed in an automobile accident in 1949. Among the grandchildren are John J. Craig V and Jeffery Lyon Craig who are associated with the family business.

The complicated and colorful life of John Nicholson pres-ents an excellent example of the pitfalls of the circumstantial evidence that researchers must sometimes use to fill gaps in the records. Born in Bute County, North Carolina in 1762 or 1763, he left a Revolutionary War pension claim that details his service at the battles of Camden and Guilford Courthouse. Surviving records, however, fail to similarly document the details of his life and various adventures in at least three states after the war. He would, for example, be arrested for being a leader in the movement to claim as part of Georgia what would much later become today’s Transylvania County, North Carolina, in what came to be called the “Walton War.”1

His genealogy has proven to be no less complicated with no clear or documented evidence of his ancestry or his mar-riage/marriages. Nicholson’s descendents have a story, going back to at least 1916, that he married Susan Brown, the aunt of the famous Georgia governor Joseph E. Brown. No docu-mentation of that relationship has been found although these Browns and Nicholsons would be neighbors for generations in Pendleton District, South Carolina, and Cherokee County, Georgia. Genealogists of John’s numerous descendents have tried to reconcile this family lore with other John Nicholson records to create a complex scenario wherein John Nicholson married at least three times, including to a Nancy Freeman and to Susan Brown. Several John Nicholsons, not all even clearly related to each other, lived at the same time and area of North Carolina. Sorting out who is which in any record is speculative.2

Depositions in the Revolutionary War pension claim of Ebenezer Fain’s widow may shed light on the facts of John Nicholson’s marriage. In those papers, John Nicholson and a Susannah Nicholson filed separate depositions on June 26, 1846 in Union County, Georgia, about how each separately came to know Fain in Washington County, Tennessee. John swore that he knew Fain before the war and ever since; that

Fain married sometime before he did. Susannah deposed that Ebenezer married in Washington County in 1781 and that she married two years later. Taken together, the depositions imply that John and Susannah married in Washington County in 1783 and never married anyone else.3

A search made of the Helen Hoskins Rugeley, Descen-dantsofWilliamandMargaret(PeggyFleming)Brown (2 vols., Austin, Tx.: H. H. Rugeley, 1983), a copy of which is in the Georgia Archives in Morrow, failed to identify this Susan-nah in Governor Brown’s family tree although his Browns lived in Washington County at the time of Susannah’s 1783 marriage. The will of Joseph Brown, Governor Brown’s grandfather, clearly rules her out as the governor’s aunt although Susannah could have been a cousin. That idea draws indirect support from the extensive letters and diaries of Gov-ernor Brown and his family in the Hargrett Rare Books and Manuscripts Library of the University of Georgia. Although filled with family information, those papers make no mention of the respective deaths of the Browns’ sometimes neighbors John (December 20, 1858) and Susannah (before the 1850 census) Nicholson.

This case study represents how the Revolutionary War pension claims contain a vast amount of information not directly related to just the pensioners. Often the old soldiers or their widows would mention unrelated officers, comrades, and even Loyalists in their claims for pensions. The state-ments made by witnesses, such as the Nicholsons, also can often answer questions, or at least present possibilities, about events that occurred when and where records were all too deficient. No index to the witness statements has yet been compiled. One crude way of searching for such depositions is to search the published 1840 list of pensioners for all claims filed by veterans and widows in the county where your family resided in that year.4

While it is true that Tennessee did not begin to record birth and death records statewide until 1914, most people are only dimly aware, if at all, that many Tennesseans born before1914filed a delayed application for an official birth record with the state of Tennessee. They did this for a variety of reasons—employment records and social security being only two of the most obvious.

Official birth records are closed to the public for 100 years by Tennessee state law. The Tennessee Delayed Birth Re-cords for those persons born before 1908 have recently been microfilmed and released for research use by the Tennessee State Library and Archives in Nashville. The McClung Historical Collection has acquired these microfilm records.

There is a singlealphabeticalindexforall900,000applicants, based on the soundex system used with census record indexes. The index itself is a good research tool, even for records still officially closed, since it lists the name, birth date, county of birth, and mother’s first name and surname initial for each applicant. Some birth dates in this record group are as late as 1913. Records for those born prior to 1900 are in one series. Those born after 1900 are arranged in one group for each year, 1901-1913. Records on microfilm currently are available for births through 1907.

Most individual files will contain a copy of the official Delayed Birth Certificate issued by the state of Tennessee to the applicant, along with the name and residence of the applicant at the time the certificate was issued. A summary of the evidence provided as proof for the birth record is also a part of the file. Unfortunately the family bible records often cited as proof were not copied to be included in the file. Usually one or more individuals provided affidavits as part of the proof. These records open up an exciting new realm of family documentation for thousands of researchers with Tennessee ancestors born prior to 1914. The records should be especially helpful for those individuals born in the 1880s, whose first census records, which should have been taken in 1890, were destroyed by fire in 1921.

Register of Persons Who Wish Reservations under the Cheroke Treaty of July 8, 1817reprinted from Echoes, July 1981, Volume 27, Numbers 2-4

In 1816 the United States Congress passed an act that would make each Cherokee head-of-household eligible to receive a free section (640 acres) of land, provided he took the oath of allegiance to the United States. This act was confirmed by Treaty with the Cherokee Nation, July 8, 1817, 7 Stat. 156, Proclamation, Dec. 26, 1817 1817, Article 8:


This list as originally printed in Echoes was located (1981) by the late Loudon County Historian, Rhea Alexander, in the “Journal and Account Books of the Cherokee Agency, 1801-1807” kept by Return Jona-than Meigs, who was the federal Indian agent to the Cherokee from 1801 to 1823, headquartered at South West Point, now Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee. This transcription was likely by Jesse Mills, then editor of Echoes the head librarian for the Tennessee Valley Authority offices located in Knoxville. Mr. Mills worked with Ms. Alexander to identify the source and importance of the document. The work in identifying and transcribing the document and in locating information illustrates the contributions of these early genealogists to the field. They labored in the days before computers and databases brought these important resources instantly to our fingertrips.

The following is a transcription of the 100 or so names on the list.

From 1942 to 1984, the East Tennessee published a quarterly newsletter known as EchoesfromtheEastTennesseeHis-toricalSociety. The newsletter featured not only organization news but also articles of interest to genealogists. Realiz-ing that these publications are no longer generally available to a new generation of researchers, we are featuring a series of select articles that we judge will be of most interest to our readers.

An early Greene County settler and his fatherserved in the Virginia militia from almost the beginning of the Revolutionary War. His mother and sister served as lookouts and ammunition makers in the fort known as Fort Henckel in far western Augusta County, Virginia, deep in the Allegheny Mountains. The location is in present-day Pendleton County, West Virginia.

Johann Christian Biebel (Bible) and his father, Johann Adam Biebel, were both on the muster roll of Captain John Skidmore’s militia company of forty-seven men which operated out of the fort. The fort had been built by German immigrant Johann Justus Henckel and was under his overall command.

Maria Eva Margaretha (Mueller) Biebel, the wife of Adam Biebel, and their daughter Eva Catherine Biebel, born in Pennsylvania in 1756, both are listed as ammunition makers with the mother named as “head of ammunition.”

Less than two months after British redcoats fired on the citizens of Lexington and Concord in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, on April 19, 1775, starting the Revolutionary War, the Virginia militia company of Captain John Skidmore held a muster on 6 June 1775 at Fort Henckel.

The fort was built by the family of German settler Johann Justus Henckel in the years between 1760-1762 for the protection of his family and other families in the surrounding area along the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River.

The settlement later came to be called Germany Valley because of the large number of German families from Pennsylvania and other parts of Virginia who migrated to the beautiful isolated valley where they felt more secure from Indian attacks.

A few years ago a French language New Testament dated 1672 was discovered, that had once belonged to Joseph Louis Cheuvront, a young blacksmith who served at Fort Henckel, and later married the

granddaughter of the builder and commander of the fort. The New Testament was discovered by Dr.

Stephanie Wolfley-Mitchell of Taylor, Missouri, who earned Master Degrees in history and biology in 2001 from Trinity University and later doctorates in the philosophy of history and the philosophy of biology from Trinity University in 2003. Dr. Wolfley-Mitchell is a descendant of Joseph Louis Cheuvront and other members of the families at the fort. She is in the process of writing the story about the discovery of the

historic book, and making known all the genealogical information it contains about the families of the forty-seven militiamen in the company of Captain Skidmore. Copies of the pages from the old book are in the Library of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and in the Archives of The Library of Virginia. Photo Library of Virginia.

On blank leaves and on the blank margins of the pages, Joseph Louis Cheuvront, who is said to have spoken seven languages, wrote records in English of each man who served in the militia company of Captain John Skidmore.

He recorded the name, date of birth, name of wife, marriage date, and names and birth dates of the children of the militiamen. He sometimes recorded the origins of the family in the old country, especially those who came from his native Alsace, like the Biebel, or Bible family.

He wrote into the record much about the organization of the fort, and how all the able-bodied women served their turn at lookout duty and also what other duties they performed such as caring for horses, making ammunition, bandages, etc. Two women were selected as nurses at each muster.

It appears to have been a well-organized operation that served the small community well, while sometimes quartering and feeding troops and horses that were passing through for duty farther west. It was utilized for that purpose in 1774 during Lord Dunmore’s War against the Indians.

Among the names and family records of militia members written down by Joseph Louis Cheuvront, were those of father and son Johann Adam Biebel (Bible) and Johann Christian Biebel.

The name, marriage date, and birth date of Maria Eva Margaretha Mueller, the wife of Johann Adam Biebel (Adam Bible) were recorded although Adam Biebel and his wife were born and married in Goersdorf,

Alsace, France.Even the death of their infant son Johann Georg

Biebel in 1749 in Alsace was entered as the first child of their marriage. Cheuvront in various entries about this family called them Biebel, Bible and Biewel. The spelling used in Alsace church records is Biebel.

In 1775, Adam Bible was 47 years old and his oldest son Christian Bible was 23 years old—both of military age and both on the muster roll of Captain John Skidmore of the Augusta County, Virginia militia stationed at Fort Henckel. They are listed as Adam Biewel, and Johann Biewel. In German this would have been pronounced as Beeveel.

The names and birth dates of all their children were duly recorded. Christian Biebel and his sister Eva Catherine Biebel were born and baptized in 1752 and 1756, respectively, in Philadelphia County (now Montgomery County), Pennsylvania.

Johann Adam Biebel and Maria Eva Margaretha Mueller were married in the small farming village of Goersdorf, Alsace, in November of 1748. After the loss of their first child in 1749, they emigrated to America by way of Rotterdam where they boarded the English ship Sandwich and arrived in Philadelphia in November 1750.

They soon moved north of Philadelphia to the

German settlements in what is now Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where they remained for at least six years. Their son Johann Christian Biebel was born there on 7 January 1752. The record of his birth is found in the New Hannover Lutheran Church. The last record found for them living in Pennsylvania is the birth record of their daughter Eva Catherine Biebel, born on 31 October 1756, and also found in the church records of New Hannover Lutheran Church.

Prior to the discovery of the Joseph Louis Cheuvront records in the French language New Testament from Fort Henckel, the earliest known record for the family of Hans Adam Biebel (Bible) was his 1773 purchase of land in Augusta County, Virginia. This left a “gap” of over fifteen years during which there was no accounting for the whereabouts of the family.

Records for Hans Adam Biebel who by then had become known in Virginia as simply Adam Bible, and his two sons Christian Bible and Adam Bible, Jr., can be located in Rockingham County, Virginia, and


Page 37: TENNESSEE ANCESTORS, East Tennessee Historical Society

TennesseeAncestors, August 2010 93


adjoining Hampshire County, Virginia (now West Virginia), in the 1782 and 1784 Virginia State Census.

In the early 1790s as immigrants and their first generation children began to move farther west in search of land, brothers Phillip Bible, Christian Bible, and John Bible came down the Shenandoah Valley and continued their journey to what is now Greene County, Tennessee.

Christian Bible was an early settler on Little Chucky Creek in western Greene County, near Warrensburg. Hundreds of his descendants still live in Greene and surrounding counties, as well as in many other states.

The name of 15 year-old Adam Bible, Jr., is listed with the younger family members of the Adam Biebel family on the pages of the Joseph Louis Cheuvront family records in the old French language New Testament.

Adam Bible, Jr., served later in the Revolutionary War in the 8th Virginia Regiment of the Continental Line commanded by Colonel Peter Muhlenberg, the son of their old pastor, Henry Melchoir Muhlenberg, back in Pennsylvania. Adam Bible, Jr., remained in Rockingham County, Virginia, until his death about 1826.

Some of the other Biebel children remained in the part of Virginia that later became West Virginia, while others migrated to Ohio.

Phillip Bible, born 1763, and John Bible, born 1767, are also listed in the Cheuvront New Testament as being at Fort Henckel.

Phillip Bible and John Bible later came to Greene County, Tennessee. Phillip remained on Little Chucky Creek near Warrensburg, and John married Rebecca Coffelt in Greene County, Tennessee, 12 July 1796, and later moved farther west to Marion County, Tennessee.

The births and marriages information recorded by Joseph Louis Cheuvront, matches perfectly with information that Bible family genealogists have

gathered from the records of the village church in Goersdorf, Alsace. Today those records are in the Archiv du Bas Rhin in Strasbourg, France.

The baptismal records for Johann Christian Biebel and his sister Eva Catherine Biebel are in the records of New Hannover Lutheran Church in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, founded in 1703 and the earliest Lutheran Church in America.

The Reverend Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, father of Colonel (later brigadier general) Peter Muhlenberg, was pastor of the New Hannover Lutheran Church when the Hans Adam Biebel family attended.

Joseph Louis Cheuvront recorded the exact same dates of birth for both Biebel (Bible) children in his 1672 French language New Testament, as those found on the records of New Hannover Lutheran Church.

Joseph Louis Cheuvront recorded the names of other children of Hans Adam and Eva Margareth Biebel (Bible) that were previously unknown to Bible family researchers. Two of them, Susannah Bible and Henry Henckel Bible, were born at Fort Henckel, Virginia in 1770 and 1772.

It was previously known by Bible family historians and genealogists that Adam Bible (Johann Adam Biebel), who died in Rockingham County, Virginia in 1795, had furnished provisions to the cause of the American Revolution. DAR and SAR memberships have been approved on his record as a Patriot.

Although it was known that his son Christian Bible (Johann Christian Biebel) had served in 1774 with Augusta County, Virginia, troops in Lord Dunmore’s War, it had never been known before the discovery of the Joseph Louis Cheuvront records in his New Testament, that both father and son had been in the Augusta County, Virginia, militia company of Captain John Skidmore as early as June 1775, in the beginning

months of the American Revolution.Joseph Louis Cheuvront had been the militia

company clerk at Fort Henckel, as well as the blacksmith.

Christian Bible lived in Greene County from about 1795 until his death at his home near Warrensburg in July 1832. His first wife Catherine Folman (Volmann?) died in Virginia. They had six children. He then married Margaretha Speegle(?), and they had six more children. Most of the children were born in Virginia, with probably three of them born in Tennessee.

In his will written in Greene County in July of 1824, Christian Bible named the following persons to share in his estate: his wife, Margaretha, sons John, George, Adam, Lewis, Jacob, Abraham, and Isaac. His other heirs were the children of his deceased son Christian Bible, Jr., who died in 1806, and his daughters Elizabeth, Mary, Catherine and Sarah.

Christian Bible is buried in Gum Spring Cemetery beside Tennessee State Route 349 near Warrensburg. Also buried here are several of his children who came to Greene County with him in the 1790s, including his oldest son John Bible, who was a lieutenant in Captain Daniel Jones’ Company of East Tennessee Drafted Militia in the War of 1812.

The two brothers of Christian Bible who came to Tennessee, have left only a few descendants in East Tennessee.

The family line of Phillip Bible has pretty much ceased to exist with only two or three known descendants still living. One of the last, Flora Edna

“Blossom” (Bible) Woods, recently died at the age of one hundred and one.

John Bible has descendants in Marion County, Tennessee, and in much of the west, as his sons married into the Cherokee Nation of Indians.

Their father, old Johann “Hans” Adam Bible, who had his entire family at Fort Henckel in 1775, remained

in Virginia. He and his wife, Maria Eva Margaretha, are buried in the Bible Cemetery just over the mountain from the site of Fort Henckel, on their old farm at Bible Run near Brock’s Gap in Rockingham County, Virginia. Their son Adam Bible, Jr., and his wife Magdelena (Shoemaker) Bible are also buried there.

The farm is now owned by John Henry Ritchie of

Fulk’s Run, Virginia, who is a descendant of Johann “Hans” Adam Bible and Maria Eva Margaretha (Mueller) Bible, through their son Adam Bible, Jr.

Maria Eva Margaretha (Mueller) Bible was the daughter of the Goersdorf miller, Otto Phillip Mueller—thus the name. The mill of Otto Phillip Mueller is now gone, but the old home still stands in Goersdorf, Alsace, France. It is still a working farm in a beautiful valley location with a small rushing river running across the front of the property.

The still inhabited home of Hans Georg Biebel, the father of Johann Adam Biebel, Sr., still stands beside the village Lutheran Church in Goersdorf, Alsace, France. This is the home that Johann “Hans” Adam Biebel left when he came to America with his new wife in 1750.

Donahue BibleMohawk, Greene County, Tennessee

The photographs of the village of Goersdorf Alsace, and the ancestral homes there of Adam Bible and Maria Eva Bible, were made by Donahue Bible while on a genealogy trip in November of 2000.

This was long before it was known about the family of Adam and Maria Eva Bible having served at Fort Henckel, Virginia, prior to, and during, the American Revolution.

Portions of this story by Donahue Bible were published by TheGreenevilleSunof Greeneville, Tennessee, in its Weekend Edition, July 31-August 1, 2010.

April 12, 2011, is the 150th anniversary of America’s plunge into its bloodiest war. Known as the Civil War or War Between the States, it resulted in upwards of 600,000 casualties. On that date in 1861, Fort Sumter was fired upon by Confederate batteries in Charleston, South Carolina. South Carolina was the first state to leave the Union, doing so on December 20, 1860.

The purpose of this article is not to provide a recap of the history of that conflict. To do so would be beyond the scope of this essay. Instead, as the Sesquicentennial of Tennessee’s own secession from the Union approaches on June 8, 2011, results on how the electorate in Knox County voted may be of interest to readers of this journal. To those researching their family history, the lists below may help determine whether or not an ancestor participated in this historic vote.

The Knox County Archives is privileged to maintain many of the early voting records recording the elections that took place since the county was incorporated in 1792. What follows are the voting lists and results of the secession vote that took place across Tennessee on June 08, 1861. The lists, unfortunately, are not complete. For example, the voter list from the 10th Civil District is missing completely. In other cases, such as in the polling of the 1st Civil District, tallies of the vote are not available, or the list of names is incomplete.

Despite not having all of the voting data at our disposal, it is apparent from the data that follows that Knox County voted predominantly to stay within the Union. Adding up the total number of votes cast in districts where there are accu-rate tallies of the results show a total of 3282 votes cast. Of that total, 2538 voted to stay in the Union while 744 voted for secession. Using this data, 77% of voters cast ballots to stay in the Union while 23% of voters cast ballots for secession.

Almost all of the votes for secession came from the 1st Civil District, which comprised the area of downtown Knoxville. As the lists below will show, in other districts, such as the 9th and the 18th, votes were evenly split between secession and remaining in the Union. In every other district within the Knox County, the vote was overwhelmingly against secession. In some districts there of was not a single vote cast for secession. In most districts, less than 10% of the votes were cast for secession.

Several of the districts have no tally to show which way their votes were cast. For example, in the 1st Civil District, there were two polling places: The Recorders Office (467 votes) and the Market House (311 votes). How did the vote go in that second polling place? It would be speculative to guess, but doing so would not have much effect on the results of this election. For example, 506 votes from this election were not tallied. Of these, 311 are from the 1st District downtown, and 195 are from the 11th District.

Given that the election results in the 1st District in the Recorder’s Office were a landslide for secession, it may be that the remaining ballots cast at the Market House could have been cast in a similar fashion. In the same light, the votes in the 11th District may have been cast in a similar manner as happened throughout the rest of Knox County. The table below represents these hypothetical results,

In conclusion, as the earlier results of the tallied votes show, the results of this election would still have been predomi-nantly a vote against secession by the residents of Knox County. The surviving lists of voters and the polling result in each district may be found in the following lists.

Cocke County Citizens of the Century: A Presentation of The Newport Plain Talk. By Edward Walker III, Duay O’Neil, and TheNewportPlainTalk. Compiled from the 2000 Newspaper Series. (Newport, TN: TheNewportPlainTalk, 2001. 119 pp. Paper. $16 includes shipping and tax. Order from TheNewportPlainTalk, 145 East Broadway, Newport, TN 37821.)The general public was invited to make nominations for citi-zens who had made Cocke County a better place to live, 100 of whom would be selected for the 2000 millennium series of the NewportPlainTalk. Those chosen come from all walks of life, from military heroes, such as Floyd Arrowood, the first Ameri-can soldier decorated for bravery in World War I, to performers such as opera star Grace Moore and country musician Homer Harris to doctors, statesmen, educators, clergy, civic leaders, and businessmen. Cocke County Citizens of the Century fea-tures a biography on each of these 100 selfless citizens, judged by their peers to have “made Cocke county a better place to live.” Down Divers Meanders: Heard-Tales of Rose Hill Cabin. By Rosemary Lee Potter, art by Joan Beaver. Third Edition Cel-ebrating East Tennessee History Cocke County 1788-present.(Clearwater, FL: Rose & Lee Press, 2010. 162 pp. Paper. $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling. Order from TheNew-portPlainTalk, 145 East Broadway, Newport TN 37821.)Alfred P. Lea erected a log cabin in the 1830s on land which had been a land grant registered to John Huff in 1788. John Huff and wife Mary Elinor Corder and their daughter, Jane, came to the French Broad area which was at the time Greene County, now Cocke, in 1783. The author relates information of the cabin which she bought in 1992 and had moved and reconstructed in Del Rio. A list of owners and residents with dates and some information includes the families of Lear, Mc-Mahan, Hensley, Cutshaw, Runnion, Freeman, Bible, Stokely, Lamb, and Harrison. She named it Rose Hill Cabin. The book includes illustrations of construction details, photographs, art work, and stories told to her by the more than 50 people she interviewed. In addition to oral information from native Cocke countians, she included research done in libraries and public records. This third edition has an expanded index and an ad-ditional appendix. There is a list of 54 interviews and activities. The stories included tell of objects found in the cabin, the Huff quilt made about 1870, and Native Americans and Civil War stories. This is an interesting account of a place which holds a lot of history of the Del Rio community and its residents.

Our Gray Ghosts: The Story of James Gray and His De-scendants of Cocke County, Tennessee. By Duay O’Neil. (Newport, TN: Author, 1995. 290pp. Paper. $45.00 includes shipping and tax. Order from Duay O’Neil, P.O. Box 1152, Newport, TN 37822.)Given the 1876 destruction by fire of Cocke County records, any well-researched volume of work is an addition to the histo-ry of that county and a welcome aid to researchers. OurGrayGhosts traces the family of James Gray, Sr. and his wife Nancy Campbell Gray, who, with their young children, left Madison County, Virginia, and came to Cocke County, Tennessee, in 1805. Through two centuries of life here, the family, over time, has developed extensive connections to other prominent families. The volume also covers the families of many Gray descendants who left the region. Social history, transcriptions of correspondence and records, and a wealth of photographs over time make this an important resource for researchers for the Gray and collaborative families. Wilmoths in America, 1623-2009, Volume #4, John Wesley Wilmoth, 1814-1870. By Walter James and Wanda Mills Wilmoth. (Heiskell, TN: Author, 2009. 793 pp. Cloth. $85 if picked up, $95 with shipping and handling. To order contact Walter Wilmoth, P.O. Box 163, Heiskell TN 37754.)Many years of research on the Wilmoth family resulted in this large volume of which the subject is John Wesley Wilmoth, the author’s great grandfather. He was born in 1814 in Halifax County, Virginia and died in 1870 in Claiborne County, Ten-nessee. He was married three times: 1. Nancy Thomas in Vir-ginia in 1835; 2. Mary Elizabeth Spriggs in 1852 in Hawkins County, Tennessee; 3. Sarah Sallie Shropshire in 1862, and is said to have fathered 30 children. The book has three chapters of extensive genealogy, each with its own index and covering families up to the 1930 census. The chapters are “John Wesley Wilmoth and His Descendants”; “Ancestors of Mary Elizabeth Spriggs and Peter Willmoth”; and “Ancestors of Willie Hodge Wilmoth.” Also included is some general history, personal information, maps, and 112 pages of photographs, as well as information on the home place in Gnat Hollow, Tazewell, Clai-borne County. The information is from libraries, tax lists, and other public records, individuals, obituaries, and other sources. An individual section lists resources. This book would be a valuable tool to those interested in this branch of the Wilmoth family. Later volumes will cover different lines of the family.

Page 69: TENNESSEE ANCESTORS, East Tennessee Historical Society

Civil War Families of Tennessee seeks to identify and honor the sacrifices of the valiant soldiers on each side of the nation’s greatest conflict. By entering your ancestor, you will pay tribute to his service and assure that his contributions are remembered. Most importantly, you can help identify and preserve special family artifacts, diaries, photographs, and documents for the benefit of future generations.

If you are a descendant of any individual who served either in or from Tennessee during the Civil War—Union or Confederate—you are eligible to join. In order to recognize the service of the many young men who died unwed or without children, CWFT membership is available through collateral descent (service of a brother of an ancestor).

Members receive a certificate featuring their names, along with the names of their ancestors, rank, regiment, and company.
