Our common ancestor is Mourning Smith's grandparents William Smith and Nancy Charles. In attempting to learn more about them,I have been looking for descendants of their children --and here you are! Do you have a wedding place/date for Mourning? Do you have same information on her parents? I have only that her dad was James Smith but have no data on her mother. Do you know where in McMinn county this Smith family lived and died? I am trying to locate where William may be buried. The story goes that Nancy C. Smith, his wife, moved to Texas after he died - but I can't confirm that --sure would like to as I live in Texas!

Notes for Ann B. Julian:
Sept. 15, 1856
Bradley Co., East Tenn.
Dear Mother and Friends,
On this sad evening I sit down to write to you with a heart almost broken but, O,my God, how will I relate the sad news. On Monday evening last you beloved son, David, and my kind husband, went down into a new well he was digging in the yard. He had gone 56 feet deep. He came to a rock. He went over to Father's (Isom Julian), and Father sent Sash (a slave) to help blast the rock, and they made two blast. The last blast they got off late Saturday night, and on Monday morning went down to see what was done by the last blast. The gas had collected in the well so that in a short time he called out to John (his son) and John went out to see what he wanted. He called his father and got no answer, and he then ran into the house and said "Mother, Father is dead." We all ran out and began to scream aloud. Brother Patterson (R. P. Julian) and Mr. Purvine and Mr. Donahoo and Charles Rice who was on his nag in the yard in the act of starting home. They all ran in haste. When brother came, he was out of breath, but said, "let me down. I can't see so dear a brother die without doing all I can. I expect to die with him, but let me down."
The rope was too small to bring them both up at the same time. Brother went down and tied my dear husband -bound the body with a counterpane- and we brought him out dead, or almost so. He groaned a few times. Brother said as they started up with him "All was done that could be done to bring him to life, but all in vain." He sleeps in the arms of Jesus in spite of all we could do. O, my poor heart is almost broken, but still I must go on with my sad news. Brother cried, "O throw me some water down in haste". There was but little water and we threw it down in haste. By this time he was almost dead. He said it seemed to him like a dream that he felt the water sprinkle when it came down. By this time he was sinking and fell down dead. But, O, my God, what are we to do now? Isom, (Ann's son), said "O Mother, can I go?" I said, "O, my son, for God's sake go and do all you can." Mary Rice, (Ann's daughter), ran out with her child in her arms, only seven days old and brought a bridle to tie him to the rope. They did so, and he went down in haste and found his Uncle dead. All the chance was to tie him in the counterpane, and he tied him and took fast hold of him and then cried, "Pull us up." This was the last he recollects. They brought them up, and my brother was dead and his tongue was out of his mouth. Isom was also dead, but soon came to again, but here is my dead husband and my dead brother. The scene was more tha I could bear, but I fell to work and after some time, R. P., began to show signs of life, and thank God, he is still alive and the doctor says he will be well. He says no tongue can describe his suffering, but seems easy. He is too weak to be taken home yet, but says he thinks he will soon be able to see his home again by the help of God.
Dear Mother, I did not know what to do, to keep my dear husband till you could come was my great desire, but the friends thought I could not do it with any degree of satisfaction to you. I am happy to say all the people, far and near, came to see my dear husband buried. It is thought there were one hundred and fifty persons present, and he was buried with the greatest solemnity ever seen in the country. The people say society has sustained a great loss, but my loss is so great my tongue cannot express it. This dear Mother, you know from experience.
I come to a close by saying, dear friend, pray for us night and day, write to us soon, and come to see us as soon as possible. Dear Mother, as soon as sister Mourning (wife of George Julian and sister of David Smith), can spare you, send me word by letter, and I will get my dear Father to bring his buggy down and bring you up to my house to stay with me as long as you can. I am so lonely. O, how can I bear it? Mary Rice is still at my house and has a fine son. All the friends are well save Father. He has the worst cold and cough he says he ever had since he rode the Circuit. He is some better. We long to hear from you all, especially my dear unfortunate brother who mourns the loss of a dear companion with poor me. I now close my letter saying, I am your sincere and affectionate child until death. Ann Smith to Mary Smith

Notes for Mourning Smith:
Mrs. Mourning Julian was born in South Carolina, December 11th,1820, and died August 29th, 1910, at the advanced age of eighty-nine years, eight months, and eighteen days. She was married to Rev. George Julian, September 4th, 1835; was the mother of thirteen children- five girls and two boys yet living. She also raised three orphan children who were left motherless when infants. When about 10 years of age she professed religion and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church and remained in that church relation about 24 years, when, without consulting her, she was transferred to the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, which was organized from the M. E. Church at that time, 1844. As soon however, as the M. E. Church was reorganized within her reach she resumed her former relationship. She was especially concerned in all the organized work of the church to which she belonged, reading the church periodicals and manifesting a deep and abiding interest in both the home and foreign evangelistic advance made toward the conversion of the world to Christianity.
Her husband being an itinerant Methodist minister and serving the church on large circuits with meager support, it was no insignificant problem that faced Sister Julian, when you remember 16 children must be fed, clothed and educated, and yet she was equal to the emergency. Mrs. Julian was cheerful, happy, and contented in her domestic life, managing the little farm while her husband was out on his circuit. Her well ordered home was visited frequently by the way-worn itinerant preacher and found to be a haven of rest and an inspiration to greater sacrifice and labor for the cause of humanity.
When the infirmities of old age came stealing upon the footsteps of mother Julian she was not taken unawares or by surprise, for she had systematically and insistently provided against all contingencies, and met the discomforts and afflictions of the changed condition with the same heroic fortitude that characterized her womanly demeanor in all the activities of life. And when the final summons came, like St. Paul she could say, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and the time of my departure is at hand."
Thus quietly and serenely, without a pain or struggle, amidst the dissolution of the earthly tabernacle, she departed-she was not, for God took her.
George W. Coleman
Notes for George Julian:
George Julian: Born July 10, 1812, in Bedford County, NC. When he was a child his parents moved to Blount County, Tenn. Deprived of early educational opportunities, he applied his mind to the search for knowledge and became a man of more than ordinary culture and influence. He was above six feet, strong and powerful. . He was an ardent and successful revivalist. He married Sept. 4, 1835, Miss Mourning Smith in McMinn County, Tenn. They had thirteen children. "At a family reunion, a short time before his death, one hundred and seventy-six (176) descendants were counted. He lived to see the fifth generation of his offspring." He retired in 1885. In his last years he grew feeble of body and mind "until only a barely perceptible breathing and a faint pulsation of a feeble heart remained" and death came March 5, 1906. He was buried at Tyner's Station, Tenn.
From: History of Methodism in Holston Conference by Isaac Patton Martin
(From Glenn Julian July 6 2002)
The fact that you are interested in Julian genealogy spurs me to look into
what I already have (from Dad), as well as to look for more.
It turns out Dad already had the obituary for Mourning Smith Julian written
by Geo. W. Coleman. Dad had typed a copy in March 1971. I don't know where he
got it, but he has typed "Methodist Advocate Journal" at the top.
He also typed another obituary for her, entitled "A Long Life Peacefully
Ended". By its style, this is probably from a newspaper, though Dad does not
say. This obituary identifies her burial place as "the old House Camp Ground
at Silverdale by the side of her husband". Among survivors it lists "Mrs. F.
A. Frazier of Cleveland Route 5". Do you have this obituary?
In the Coleman obituary it was particularly interesting to see that "without
consulting her, she was transferred to the Methodist Episcopal Church, South"
at the split in 1844.
George's obituary from the Journal of the Holston Conference mentions his
being ordained deacon in 1849 and elder in 1854. Both of these would have
been in the M. E. Church, South (I have a parchment certificate of ordination
as elder - must be the original, even has a little packet attached containing
the shattered fragments of the wax seal.) George and Mourning married in
1835, so it is possible George transferred Mourning to the Southern church,
rather than her being transferred by some higher administrative body.
At any rate Vejnar, the church historian I reached, says the George's
obituary in the Holston Conference Journal means that George transferred back
to the "northern" church. We may assume that he did so at the same time that
Mourning did after the Civil War (Coleman's obituary). [There were a lot of
Union sympathizers in East Tennessee during the war.]
Vejnar also says that ordination as deacon made George a "Reverend" and a
Becoming elder was added recognition.
My Episcopal rector told me that our Episcopalian (i. e. Anglican) church was
the only one that did not split north/south over slavery. In our church, a
deacon is of a lesser order (nevertheless entitled Rev.), and the rector gets
ordained as a priest
The latter title would have been too Popish for George!
I also have Dad's typed list of the results of census for 1850, 1860, and
1870 for George and his family. Either there are typing errors (or misread
handwritten census numbers) or George aged 15 years between census takings.
The results show all 13 children as they arrive and leave, plus George
Wheatley who must be one of the orphans. The census even lists George's
salary in 1860 and 1870. Do you have this information? (I don't know where
Dad got it. He lists page number and family number for each census, so there
must be books somewhere for each Census District.)
Another letter from Glenn June 25/2003
Sounds like you have been busy. Glad to hear you are making good progress.
You are right about Chilcutt--it is on Chilcutt Road in Bradley County about
1-2 miles from Benton Pike. I actually know the pastor there now--Renny
Whittenbarger who is a school teacher here in Cleveland. My best guess is
that Gum Springs was in the Gum Springs community near present-day Gum
Springs Baptist Church on Gum Springs Rd. (near Meigs County). Freewill is
the name for a community to the west of Cleveland in the Freewill Rd, Old
Freewill Road area. There is a present-day St. Elmo Methodist on Francisco
Road which is near the Freewill area. Pickens' Chapel is the hard one.
Neither I nor my dad have heard of it. He looked in his History of Bradley
County book to no avail. Here are you some possible ways to obtain this info
and check my other knowledge also. I talked with Broad Street United
Methodist Church today and they said the Holston Conference of the church
had a archivist at Emory & Henry College--phone number is (276) 944-4121
(ext 6668). A older lady in our community told me to contact them and said
the church had "annals" of the Holston Conference that should have all the
old "charges" --communities ministered to. Broad Street's web site is
www.bsumc.org. Another great source of Bradley County information is Dr.
Bill Snell a local historian who has written several books about Bradley
County. His home phone number is (423) 472-8408.
Hope this info helps.
You could not have done a better job of thanking me for my efforts in sending you information about the Julian family into which Minnie Payne married!
I had been looking for information about the Candy's Creek farm. The "Mr. Julian,
M. E. preacher" was Rev. George Julian, grandfather of Minnie Payne's husband Ernest Julian, and my own great-grandfather. I had found Rev. George in District 10 census in 1870, so sale of the farm by Jos. B. Cobb in February 1870 is consistent.
Perhaps association of the farm with Jos. B. Cobb, or the date of sale, will allow tracking precisely where the farm was and how big it was.
I had not been able to find registration of sale of the farm by Rev. George Julian at about the time he bought a plot for a home in Cleveland 1 July 1896.
In February 1870 our father Jos. B. Cobb sold his farm on Candy's Creek, E. Tenn., 3 1/2 miles N.W. of Cleveland in Bradley Co. to a Mr. Julian, an M.E. preacher and we turned our faces westward to the far off Indian Ty. Being part Cherokee Indian we all had a right to land in the Cherokee ...
I regret that there was not time for us to meet during my recent trip to
the Smokies and Cleveland.
On the Bradley County map you sent me, I cannot see a key identifying
churches. On the County map there are symbols that I take to represent a
4 on Chilcutt Rd. Is that Chilcutt United Methodist?
7 and 22 on Francisco Rd. Is either the St. Elmo Methodist (Freewill
I see Gum Springs Rd leading NW into Meigs County, though I don't see a
symbol that would represent the Gum Springs Baptist Church.
Pickens' Chapel remains a mystery, but the other three don't constitute
too bad a distribution for one man on horseback. From 1870 to 1896 Rev. George
had a farm on Candy's Creek, quite handy for Gum Springs and Freewill.
George's father Rev. Isham Julian had land over near Tasso. Isham helped build
Julian's Chapel on Tasso Rd (used 1869-1955), so it's a little surprising he did
not handle NE Cleveland himself. (Maybe he did before he got old: he rode
circuit but I don't know where yet.)
I have been in touch with the Holston Conference archivist Robert Vejnar
at Emory and Henry. He has been helpful, and it was he who associated
Chilcutt's Campground with the Chilcutt United Methodist Church (though he didn't
seem to know exactly where it is).
Rev. Andy Ferguson of Broad Street Methodist has been helpful and
encouraging to me. Broad Street is the descendant of the "Methodist Episcopal Church,
South". My great-grandfather's circuit (above) was for the "Methodist
Episcopal Church" (i.e. Unionists), so I would expect that First Methodist on Ocoee
would be a better source of information, but I have not managed to contact Rev.
Rusty Taylor. Andy Ferguson gave me the name and e-mail address of Rev.
Could you give me a snail-mail address for Bill Snell? I think it would be
better for me to write him first, to explain the context, rather than
making a phone call first.

First I had to learn that the 19th century surveyor's grid is tilted at about
24 degrees to the lines of latitude and longitude, then I had to reconstruct
the grid and count off townships and sections. But I succeeded in locating the
farm, and it is indeed "on Candies Creek near Georgetown", the best
description my Dad had been able to find. It turns out that Betty and I nearly drove
over the property while roaming country roads last June.
Thanks for your help!

Notes for Andrew Jackson Rogers:
A short history of "The Rogers Clan" appeared in the Centennial Edition of the Sweetwater Reporter News, 6 July 1981. __"A. J. Rogers known as "Uncle Jack", moved his family to Nolan County in 1896. The family first stayed with Mr.. Rogers' brother, "Bob" Rogers, who was living at the old Blue Goose site
near Sweetwater Creek. Soon A. J. Rogers became manager of the old Roe ranch east of Sweetwater. For 21 years the Rogers family, A. J., his wife Caldonia Belle , their sons Claude, Lloyd, Fred, and Van, and daughters Ella (Scott), Ora (Burns), and Bessie (Ferguson) lived on this ranch._Owned by A. J. Roe
of Fort Worth, the ranch included thousands of acres in North and south Fisher counties. The headquarters was located on a hill overlooking Sweetwater Creek, just east of the present day U.S. Gypsum plant. The ranch house facing south had a long porch across the front of a series of bedrooms, a parlor_room, a dining room with a loft where the boys slept, and a kitchen attached on the back. Nearby was a rock cistern, a large cellar was on the west, a smokehouse on the east, a two-room bunkhouse
was farther out back, and beyond it were chicken houses. Down front toward the creek were the corrals,a large lofted barn and hog pens._The Rogers planted and picked cotton and shocked feed from a field located where now is the Garden of Memories Cemetery._There were many fine horses, mules, pigs, turkeys, geese, lots of chickens, milk cows, and hundreds of range cattle. Spring branding of caves lasted for days. Assisting A. J. Rogers and family were nephews Shant and John Rogers and their
families who lived in line camps on the edge of the Roe ranch. The McElroys also aided in the round ups. Besides the livestock, the Rogers had hunting hounds, cats, a pet squirrel, a few caged prairie dogs, and rabbits._Since the headquarters was located near the T&P railroad with telephone lines, the Rogers had one of the first rural telephones in Nolan County. A hazard of living near the tracts ment many hobos and
tramps came wanting meals. The creek often flooded all the valley, then Lloyd and his bride, Buelah, who lived across the creek had to cautiously walk the railroad tressel to the headquarters, hoping no train caught them first._When the Rogers first came to Sweetwater, they passed through the Newman pasture to the eastern limits of the city in their wagon. As they neared the large Newman entrance "gateway to Sweetwater", young Watt Bennett ran to open the gate, later he and Claude Rogers became
friends, fishing pals, and even brother-in-laws. On one of those first visits to Sweetwater in 1896, Claude recalled vividly seeing cowboys ride horses into a saloon._A. J. Rogers was a large man with a bold mustache; he wore a black hat cocked to one side and high topped black boots with his trousers stuffed in them. Rogers would come into town, go to the post office, to pick up the morning Fort Worth Star Telegram which he folded and had the habit of shoving it down into his boot tops._Then he would
proceed around the corner to Maynards Drug. On one such morning his small son Claude accompanied him when they were met at the door of Maynards by a drummer (salesman in a frock tailed coat who traveled out of Dallas to peddle goods). The drummer intimidated A. J. by remarking, "Well sir, I bet you're a genuine old timer around here!" Mr. Rogers ignored the incenuation of old timer, as actually
nobody had been around Sweetwater very long. After completing business and leaving, Rogers was again annoyed by the inquisitive drummer, "Old timer, just how long have you been her?" Stepping out from the building with full attention of the salesman, Rogers pointed to the limestone hill southeast of Sweetwater and stated, "You see those mountains out there? When I first came here those were just pebbles!" The drummer reacted with a smile and replied, "Yes, indeed I'd say you have been here a long time."_A. J. Rogers was active in Nolan County's educational system. He was on the county school board for 11 years having served as chairman. He was also a member of the Sweetwater School board during the construction of a high school, West Ward, and south Ward buildings. All of his children came to school in Sweetwater. They_attended the old three story building located on the site of present Philip
Nolan. The students could look out the windows to the north and be entertained by the Newmans training race horses. Claude was a small, light weight lad who liked horses, and the Newmans wanted him for a jockey, but A. J. would never consent. Often after school the kids would go by their friends the Bradfords, who ran a lumber yard for Mr. Roe. Homer Bradford remembered how the Rogers children delighted in filling warm biscuits with syrup from the kitchen. Then they were ready to go back to the ranch._A. J. Rogers was the first public weighter of Nolan County. He served as a deputy sheriff under Tom Crutcher and John Bond. Rogers rode on the posse of 1897 in search for the herder who killed B. Bardwell. Rogers was a member of the Methodist Church and an active member of the Masonic lodge holding a life certificate awarded him in the Sweetwater lodge in 1929. He aided in acquiring the Santa Fe Railway through Sweetwater._Around 1918 the Roe ranch sold after the death of the owner, at that time A. J. Rogers purchased his own ranch east of Lake Trammell. There he and his wife lived in a large ranch house (still standing) with good facilities for livestock raising and farming. He also purchased land near Lake Sweetwater where Mr. and Mrs.Burns (his daughter) lived and farmed. Later this property was sold to Mr. and Mrs. Mondell Rogers, Sr. a grandson of_A. J._"Uncle Jack" died February 28, 1933 soon
followed by the death of his wife on March 12, 1933._Most of the Rogers spent all their lives in Nolan County. Claude and Marguerite Scott farmed and ranched in the Plum Creek Community. Many times he received award for the first bale of cotton in Sweetwater. Lloyd Rogers served as assistant fire marshall and in the 1950's as Chief of Police for the City. Bessie Ferguson was active in the VFW auxiliary.
_Andrew Jackson Rogers was born July 17, 1863, to Aron and Nancy Upchurch Rogers in North Carolina. He began teaching school in Arkansas when he was17. He moved to Texas when he was 21 and married Caldonia Belle Henry of McLennan County. He taught school in Throckmorton prior to moving to Nolan County._Rogers had some brothers who also at times lived in Nolan County included are Ruben Rogers, a Methodist preacher, William Robert "Bob" Rogers (1860-1949), and Jacob "Jake" Isaac
Rogers (1848-1912), who operated a cotton gin in early Sweetwater around the vicinity of Bowie Street. Later he and his family lived in the Nolan_Community and he is buried in Slater Cemetery, some of his grandchildren living in Sweetwater are Mrs. Hudson (Lula Mae) Lincoln and Mrs. Hayden (Henry Lee) Puckett._Descendants of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Rogers who have lived most of their lives in Nolan County include one living daughter Mrs. Ella Scott, 95 years old; two daughter-in-laws Mrs. Lloyd (Buelah)
Rogers and Mrs. Van (Amalee) Rogers. Grandchildren who have lived in the county include Bert Scott, son of Ella; Mondel Rogers, Dr. (deceased), son of Claude; Helen Jackson, daughter of Fred and Amy; Jo Ann Morgan (deceased), daughter of Van and Amalee, and Mildred Cody, daughter of Lloyd and Buelah._Dated March 1, 1933 an obituary in the Sweetwater Reporter refers to A. J. Rogers as "a pioneer resident of Nolan County" so with time he became a genuine old timer of Nolan County."

Notes for Frances Luticia Julian:
Name sometimes spelled Lutetia. Always called Lou.
I remember Grandma Frazier as being a pretty lady. Usually sitting by the fire or on the porch in the summertime,sewing or reading. I think that I was a little in awe of her. I remember her having long conversations with my father when we went there. I don't remember her ever going anywhere. Of course, when I knew her it was in her later years, and maybe that is what you did at that age at that time of life. Grandma told her children, after they were grown, that if they wanted a second name they could use her maiden name, Julian (she would be right up to date). Grandma talked politics and international affairs with intelligence and interest. Ruth Frazier remembered many family reunions in the big yard at the farm in Bradley County.
The article* that she wrote after the death of Grandpa and the letters written during their courtship reveal much about the close relationship of this couple. Jean Frazier Freshour
*see Frances Asbury Frazier
Notes for Francis Asbury Frazier:
Always called Frank.
Ruth Frazier remembered Grandpa Frazier as a very quiet person. He wore a French goatee. I remember that my mother loved him very much and said he was a kind and gentle person. He had a teacher's certificate from1876 to 1883. I have several letters written by Frank to Lou and one from Lou to Frank from their courting days in 1870's. They seemed to have a very close relationship. Also, we have a poem written by Lou after Frank's death.
His beautiful farm was in Michigan Avenue Community, Bradley County. In 1884 he was elected to fill out a half term as County Court Clerk and in 1886 he was reelected. He was a well respected farmer who took much interest in improvement of conditions for farmers. Through his efforts Farmers Cooperative Insurance was established.
(Randy Morris to Glenn Julian 3/8/2006)
No problem. It just recently closed(Bendix plant), but it had been bought a few years back by Honeywell. The street address is 3000 20th Street NE, Cleveland, TN 37311. It is beside a railroad track. It is near Michigan Avenue Road, but not on it. It is about a quarter of a mile away (crow flying directions) across the RR track from Michigan Avenue.
I was born on his birthday , May 5, 1922. My mother was always sorry that he did not live to know that he had a grandchild sharing his birthday. He had died , January 17, 1921. He had gone to John Hopkins Hospital for treatment near the end but they could not help him.

--These are copies of letters written in 1875 when Frank and Lou were courting. They were married 08/12/1875:
At Home Jan. 22nd 1875 My Dear Lou: As I think of going to town today; I deem it not improper to write you a few lines in order that your mind may be employed in meditating over the thoughts expressed by one that loves you because of your worthy principles. I have been on a visit to McMinn, got home yesterday enjoyed myself finely. I expect to go to Georgia tomorrow if everything goes well to see my sis down there. I wish you were here to go with me. I don't know whether I will go to Dalton or not. I would like the very best kind to see Fronie and James. Lou, I would like finally to see you, and will see you soon if nothing happens to the contrary. I think I will be over to see you about Saturday week - that is the fifth Saturday or Sunday. Lou, if you get this in time I would like for you to answer it by that time so I will know for certain whether you will be home or not. As you have been talking of going off for a visit. If you had thought of going at that time let me know and I will not come then. As it is getting late, I will bring my remarks to a close for this time. I am in good health. Sam, Ma, and Ruth have had or are taking the mumps, the boys are about well -Ruth is just taking them. Dear Lou, think of your loved one often, remember you are not forgotten amid the gayest throng - with many, very many wishes for your happiness I will close, your very tender and affectionate love. F. A. Frazier
At Home Feb. 17th, 1875 Dear Lou I received your note yesterday evening. I did not have time before, I was somewhat surprised when I received it and saw the hand writer. I can only say in answer to Isham's request; I would like most excellent well to go with him but I think it most impossible for many reasons, I am truly sorry that it is so; for the reason, as you said we have never taken a trip together and I don't know when we will have another opportunity, but if I can't go this time , I hope this will not be the last chance. Tell him that if it was in my power to go, I would come with pleasure, but if he wishes to go not to let me be the cause; but to go anyhow, maybe he will have a better chance at the girls. I would sign my reasons for not going, but I deem it unnecessary. I will tell him when I see him. Lou, I would be glad to say but I don't know when I can come now, not before the first of the month anyhow. We have had a good deal of sickness in the family. Ruthie has not been able for duty in a month - she is now on the mend. Father has been confined to the house every since the day I went to your house, my health continues good. Lou, take care of yourself; many are sick and dying; for this reason I shall be glad to hear from you often. I will write you again before long. Very affectionately yours, F. A. Frazier (note added to letter) Saturday Feb. 19th Dear Lou: As I answered your note several days ago and haven't had an opportunity of sending it to the office; I will add a little more and make it answer for another letter. I guess as it was raining all day yesterday you did not look for me, had the weather been good, I guess you would have been disappointed. I could not have gone anyway. Lou, I was down and spent a few hours with Uncle Herd R. and family another evening. They treated me very kind when I started Bas followed me out to the gate and said -Mr. F. you have not told me all about our folks on the creek, said he wanted to go with me when I went over again said as I was the eldest he would give me prefference (guess he will) should he go next time. With much love and affection for you I close, F.A.F. Lou, I guess I will come to see you about Saturday before the first Sunday in March. Please write to me between now and then if you had rather I would not come that soon tell me and I will put it off, I will have to come on Saturday or Sunday as I can't loose the time during week days. Don't you think I am about out of paper.
At Home August 6th,1875 My Dear Lou: It is in and through my most tender affections of my heart I attempt writing you this evening and I can hardly keep from feeling a dread that my letter will not render entire satisfaction, but Lou if it don't in my heart I blame no one but myself for you have been true and offered fare in every respect. I stand pretty much where I did when we parted last. I have studied and restudied the matter but hard to come to the point where I look at it one way but on the other hand it looks like nonsense to be halting between two opinions, what is a few months either way? I opened school this week with 45 S. good many to come in next week but the trouble is I can't find out for certain how long the school will last. Mr. Henry said he did not think it would continue much over three months and if that be the case it would not be worth our while to settle near the school house. If we could get a house to live in but decided to give you the prefference if you will except as to the time three or four months, don't amount to much anyway- very true I would rather my arrangements were made for another year but nevertheless thy will as well as mine be done. If it be your desire to marry soon I will try to make some arrangements to take care of you if not assure your folks we will be as little trouble as possible when we do get ready to be off so far as their affairs are concerned. I would not have them wait a minute on us. Lou, I wish I was with you, I could talk better perhaps than I can write (I don't know either whether I could or not). I long for the time to come when this subject will be worked over no more and when we will dwell in love together, then I think I will be happy at your side. Contentment: O' how sweet it would be. I hope I will experience it soon; may I not lose another year as I have the last but may the year to come, find us situated together is the earnest desire of your loving, Frank. Dear Lou, I hope you will pardon me if I have said anything contrary to thy will because nothing has been meant that way; but much to thee I owe for the kindness thou has shown toward me. I am going to town tomorrow before I hear from you. I would like to have a letter from you as soon next week as possible. Perhaps I can come over Saturday week or tomorrow week if necessary. I don't know anything to the contrary now. Mother and Ruth have been preparing for the meeting. Ruth says to tell you to come and stay awhile with her. I am well as usual this week. I remain as ever your affectionate lover. F. A. Frazier
At Home Aug. 21st 1775 My dearest Lou: According to promise, I will write you a few lines that you may know that I will survive. Nothing I believe very interesting to write you. I arrived safely at home about dust Sabbath eve without any rain on me. It seemed almost like a providential thing that the rain ceased that evening. Lou, I feel very much fatigued this morning after laboring all week with from 40 -50 chaps in the school house which was very tiresome. I was called on during the night last night to go for a doctor for two of my neighbor boys who are very poorly with fervor. After riding to Cleveland and back you can guess I don't feel very gay this morning. But Lou, while such is the case you know I have always complied with my promises when I tell you I'll do anything so long as it is in my power I will do it. I hope that I will never be guilty of prevaricating, but ever be true to one I hold so dear. Lou, I often think of you, and with deep affections each meeting seems happier than the last, and each parting more painful. Time rapidly wings its flight, but never to fast can it move until thou art borne to my bosom. Until that happy day, and after it may all love, joy, and peace be thine is the sincere wish of your very humble and affectionate Frank. P.S. Lou I thought I was done writing but I have thought of something more. Especially for Fannie, tell her that Mr. Moore has returned home. Visited my school yesterday - said he would like very much to go to Candy Creek, asked me when I was going over and so on - Ruth is fixing to go to Georgia with sister to stay awhile, she and I calculate on going to Burkets tomorrow to a meeting. I wish you and I. B. would come over there. Lou, you must excuse my pencil scribbling. Pa spilt all my ink last night and it is the best I can do at this time. Don't know when I will be over again would like to come before all of the peaches are gone. I will hope to hear from you immediately if not sooner, please Lou, do not disappoint me. Yours Truely----
Candy Creek, Tennessee Sept. 18/1875 Dear Frank- I received your appreciative missive some two hours ago. Brother told me what you said today. I don't know what to say in answer to your integrations as to renting at Uncle S. unless it be as of old. It's as you think best I am not going to complain when you do the best you can. One thing certain we don't like we will not be bound to stay always. But if I know anything of the house it will need repair. As to settling near relatives, I don't care much about it, no to be candid. Yet I will never throw a single straw in your way if I know it. If you think it best - all well. I can stay if only you are there. Where you are to sympathize with me I can, I will try to be content. I do not wish to be dictatorial in the least. So do dear Frank as you think best - for yourself & Lou, I think will not complain. What is best for you is as I consider for me. When you have made a decision be prompt to- let - me know what it is. I heard this week that you had ken the Sprigg's place. I did not know whether it was so or not till your letter came this evening- I was sorry to hear that you were not well. Frank, you don't know how glad I will be when you get out of that school room. I hope that I will be better than I now am. I went to Mr. Lawson's today. I am so tired tonight I can scarcely sit-up to write. It was weaving Friday but I had to give up the attempt- about two hours by sun. First time I ever had weaving to affect my breath and could scarcely breathe for twenty-four hours without pain. Maybe it will get better now. I feel better than yesterday, some. I thought that it would be better for me to be in company than not- is the reason I went to Mr. L's today. I want to see you Frank. I have never known trouble till of late. You may not understand why so but I know it's that way. My heart has been wrung with grief. I have often thought that I cannot bear it alone. You may think it weakness yet I can't avoid it. Soon I hope it will be ended as to an addition yet it's pangs will ever remain in my bosom. This only causes me to cling closer to the one I have selected of all others I think most sure to make me happy in this life. Come over whether F. comes or not- she will come if nothing happens more than we know now--Excuse this would be letter for I will have to close for tonight - it is late and a big days work before me tomorrow. So with much love to you I say Goodnight, Lou Monday Morning September 20th 1875 Frank, I have been thinking about what Brother said If we are going to Uncle's I say go- if Uncle will give you a chance that will pay you it may be that he would let me stay till you would have time to do better. Then I would like to be near sister Susie. I have always been independent of my Chatata relatives and it will remain so. You know how I hold my head it will still be up for I know some of them don't like me. And I am not one inch behind them. Your Uncle seemed to enjoy his visit yesterday- As I was getting on my horse he chucked a letter at me- We will enjoy this week if I keep feeling as well as I do this morning. Hope to see you soon, was glad to hear from Sallie, Your affectionate Lou J.
------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------- The article that she wrote after the death of Grandpa and the letters written during their courtship reveal much about the close relationship of this couple. The following passage was found by Grandma bed, written in her handwriting, after Grandpa's death. Did she copy it or did she write it herself?
"Death crossed over our threshold and left the voice of our loved one dumb. Our friends clasp our hands and try to say words that will soothe our hearts that are stricken numb. Speech seems so vain when sorrow is at its peak. Words are such little things. So sadly they fail in the deep moments of sorrow the darkening mystery of death. Yet there are words that console and save, words associated with love, grief, and hope, and thoughts of God. (The coward in us whispers and we shed many a tear.) Though the home life is endowed with memories sweet, we dread the very silence of the place. There we catch ourselves listening for the call to service to help in his weakness, in the silent hours of the night for the breathing to know that he slept or was only keeping still so that we might not be disturbed. He was so intimately connected with every tiny affair of the daily living. His strong personality raised all to a high level and quickened the lives of all around him and his presence surely filled in and rounded out our home. At times I feel as though the world had stopped moving and that I was never to feel it go again."

Children of Frances Julian and Francis Frazier are:
129 i. Winfred Julian5 Frazier21, born 05 Nov 1876 in Bradley County, Tennessee; died 16 Aug 1957 in Bradley County, Tennessee(Fort Hill Cementery). He married Bertha Irene Marshall22 07 Sep 1904 in Bradley County, Tennessee; born 23 Aug 1879 in prob Bradley County, Tennessee; died 12 Apr 1956 in Bradley County, Tennessee(Fort Hill Cementery).
Notes for Winfred Julian Frazier:
Uncle Winfred had a grocery store in Cleveland. I don't remember seeing him many times.
Notes for Bertha Irene Marshall:
My memories of Aunt Bertha are mostly about the week of my father's death. She came from Cleveland to our house which was a long way in those days. She took over the kitchen and she was so kind and loving to everyone. I think that she and my mother were very close. From hearing my mother tell of the early days and the four sisters-in-laws, I think they were all very good friends.
130 ii. Maude Julian Frazier23, born 26 Nov 1877 in Bradley County, Tennessee; died 06 Mar 1937 in Bradley County, Tennessee(Fort Hill Cementery).
Notes for Maude Julian Frazier:
Aunt Maude never married. She was the only daughter and as many daughters of her time she stayed at home and cared for her parents. I remember going there as a child and she would takes us out to see the chickens; she seemed to always be trying out another breed. She was an attractive lady with a beautiful smile. She almost always cooked country ham for breakfast.
(a letter written by Maude to her parents while she was visiting relatives in Texas)
Abilene, Texas May 3, 1904 Dear Papa and Mamma: I suppose that by this time you know that I am at Uncle Henegar's. Lillie came home Sat. and staid until Sunday afternoon. I have seen all of the folks but Pearl and her babies and Aunt Addie. Charlie and his family have moved back here so they are all here in a bunch - not more than three miles apart.
Now I am going to tell you something. It rained a shower here last night- the first for seven months. What do you think of that? Uncle has not planted a grain of anything and many people are hauling water five miles and driving stock many miles to water. You never saw grass any deader in Aug. or in the dead of winter for that matter in Tennessee. They will say that they never saw it so dry but once before since they have been in Texas.
Taking everything into consideration I have seen nothing superior to Tenn.. Yet the best homes in the country here would seem common there and I have been no place yet where they fare better than we do at home. Everyone treats me royally here. Indeed, they hardily allow me to get myself a drink of water.
I have had no mail since I came here for I had my mail sent to Caps and they have quit going there for mail since that law was passed that the Star Route carriers could distribute mails along their route. So don't forget to write me to Abilene in care of Uncle as he went and had my name registered with his so that mail would be sent.
How is the garden and crops? I am well and hearty but just about as lazy as you can imagine. I will go to Merkle and spend two or three days at the close of the school. Write me often as you can with all of the news.
Your Loving daughter, Maude Frazier
131 iii. Alva Julian Frazier24, born 25 Sep 1879 in Bradley County, Tennessee; died 23 May 1932 in Lenoir City, Tennessee. He married Nellie Agnes Whittle25 04 Dec 1904 in Knoxville, Tennessee; born 18 Jan 1882 in Knoxville, Tennessee; died 11 Jun 1964 in Lenoir City, Tennessee .
Notes for Alva Julian Frazier:
My father grew up on a farm and was never happy living in the city. He came to Knoxville as a young man to study agriculture at the University of Tennessee. He lived with his Uncle Tom while attending school. It was during this time that he met a young lady, Nell Whittle. They were married 12/04/1904. The wedding was at their home on 5th Avenue.
They lived in Cleveland, Tennessee during the early years of their marriage. Their first child was still born. They lived in Chattanooga for a while, but in 1910, they were listed in the Knoxville City Directory. By this time they had two sons, Whittle and Francis. Francis died with colic just before he was two years old. My mother was very ill with typhoid fever, and my father had surgery for a ruptured appendix. These were hard times. By 1912 they had a grocery store and lived above the store on McCalla Avenue in Knoxville. He was a good grocery man except for being too generous with credit. Mama always said he could not refuse credit to anyone who was hungry.
About 1917 or 1918 they realized a dream of Alva's: they purchased a farm (200acres) near the junction of Highways 11 and 70 in the edge of Loudon County. They moved from Knoxville in a wagon, all day for twenty miles. My mother suffered from culture shock: the mud on her carpets, the farmers in overall at church etc I was still hearing about it years later. They had three sons at this time: Whittle, Julian, and Philip.
Alva continued to sell groceries, but now wholesale for someone else. He also tried to farm and garden on nights and Saturday, never Sunday, Sunday was for rest and church. He traveled all over middle East Tennessee calling on merchants who became lifetime friends. He wore out some of the earliest Model T Fords. An early treat I remember was going with him in the summer time and having a picnic lunch of cheese and crackers and soda pop.
We lived in a very old log house which had been rebuilt or restored several times. School conditions were very poor- no transportations with the nearest two room school about 3 miles away. In the first years, they moved to Lenoir City , during the school year (5 miles away) Later the boys rode our horse and family pet, red Prince to the two room school. (Prince roamed loose in our yard, sometimes with several kids on his back). One day, he headed for the back of the farm and while crossing Hwy # 11 was hit and killed by a Greyhound Bus. There were many tears shed for him. We never had another horse anything like him.
When I became school age in 1928, there was talk of moving back to town, but finally we got a school bus actually it was a well filled station wagon.
About 1930 Alva opened a wholesale grocery in Lenoir City.( Remember this is the time of the terrible depression) remembering his history of trouble with giving credit too freely, he called it Spot Cash Grocery. He was just finishing a day there on May 23, 1932 when he fell on the sidewalk, dead with a massive heart attack, just 51 years old. (These many many years later I can still feel the pain of that time.) I was 10 years old. I remember the next days like an often played old movie.
Alva and Nell had a site picked out to build a new home. He was to never see the mortgage paid off or the new home built.
Notes for Nellie Agnes Whittle:
She was called Nell. This was her preference so that is what we put on her gravestone.
My mother was a great storyteller and she often entertained us as children with stories of her childhood and growing up years. To me it always seemed to be a romantic time (gay nineties) with carriages and horses and beautiful dresses. She was a part of a prominent family and had advantages while growing up that many did not have. She attended Holbrook College at a time when many girls did not go on to school. She was a talented pianist. She played the piano for the neighborhood Baptist Church for many years even though she was a Methodist
She loved to sew and made all of her clothing and then later mine. She loved colors and could make her home look pretty with very little. She was a very good cook and passed on to me many of her cooking skills. The table had to be set properly and certain things had to be done in the proper way. She lived her Victorian upbringing.
By the time I was born, seventh of eight children, she was worn out and ill most of the time.
After my father died (before Social Security), we had a hard time. It was 1932, the middle of the great depression. She managed with what little she had very well. She took the insurance money ($5000) and paid off the mortgage on the farm. A thousand dollars was put in the bank for emergencies: taxes or the occasional doctor bill.
During the 1940 and 50's the farm was gradually sold off to pay hospital and doctor bills (in the years before Medicare) She was blind and ill for several years before she died at 82 years of age. For the last 32 years of her life, she continued to live on the farm where she had lived with my father. She refused to leave the place where she had lived in happier times.
132 iv. Eustis Julian Frazier26, born 05 Jun 1881 in Bradley County, Tennessee; died 19 Nov 1950 in Bradley County, Tennessee(Fort Hill Cementery). He married Lois Blondell Nichols27 17 May 1917 in Bradley County, Tennessee; born 09 Sep 1893 in Wisconsin; died 04 Apr 1961 in Bradley County Tennessee(Fort Hill Cemetery ).
Notes for Eustis Julian Frazier:
Eustis taught in Bradley County school for about 40 years. He served for 12 years as Superintendent, 9 years as principal at Bradley, and was principal at Charleston, Tennessee before returning to Bradley again, where he was teaching mathematics at the time of his death.
Uncle Eustis and Aunt Lois lived near Grandma Frazier's. I remember how much fun it was as a child to go from Grandma to their house to play. Rachel was near my age and we usually played dolls. About once or twice each year before my father died we would go to Cleveland and it was a long trip. I remember going at least once after we got an A model Ford, quite a step up from the T models. Uncle Eustis and family came every year before my fathers' death to visit. These were good times for our family.
Notes for Lois Blondell Nichols:
I remember Aunt Lois as being very attractive and friendly. It seemed everyone loved her. She was a musician. I must have been the only brown eyed cousin among the Frazier cousins. She always mentioned my brown eyes. Most were blonds and red heads with blue eyes.
133 v. Carlos Julian Frazier28, born 21 Dec 1883 in Bradley County, Tennessee; died 15 Jun 1979 in Lantana, Florida. He married Cecile Whitworth 10 Oct 1911 in Bradley, County, Tennessee; born 26 Dec 1892 in Tennessee; died 11 Oct 1976 in Lantana, Florida.
Notes for Carlos Julian Frazier:
Carlos lived 95 1/2 years and was able to live in his own home till the end, only in bed the last week. He was a well known nurseryman in the Palm Beach area of Florida. He dealt with all kind of plants. His hobby was "podacarpus"; an ornamental shrub. He began planting the seed as a hobby; but it developed into a full time occupation. This family was known for their kind hospitality to everyone.
I remember only once when I was a child that Uncle Carlos and Aunt Cecile came to visit. Florida was a long way from Tennessee. Corinne was a baby and Carl just a little boy. I felt as if I knew the girls because my mother had told me much about my cousins. She had known them while they still lived in Cleveland. Clarence and I went to see them once when we were in Miami for a business trip. They were very gracious to us. Frances lived near and she came over to see us. We did not have much time since Clarence had to be back for meetings. I wish I had known them better.

One of my cousins gave me a picture of Great Aunt Mabra and her husband, Dr. Dubose and I know that they are buried in Cedar Grove cemetery in Athens. I remember my mother telling me that when she went to high school, she stayed in Athens with Aunt Mabra and Aunt Mabra wouldn't let mother do anything around the house except study so mother made straight A's all the way through high school. That was really a tough act to follow when I got to high school.
