DEDICATION To the memory of my loving mother, who departed this life on March 1, 1887, at whose knees I sat as a child and listened to many a recountal of the heroic struggles and vicissitudes of her early Hamrick ancestors whose exploits and undertakings account, in a large measure, for the sterling citizenship and well-founded progress of this immediate section, this book is respectfully and lovingly dedicated. PKEFACE The author wishes to thus assure the readers of this work that he has made no effort to invite fame nor has he undertaken the furtherance of the art of authorship — rather it has been his in the compilation of data, facts and figures to give the direct and diverse ramifications of the several Hamrick generations and to show the honest strivings of them as early settlers and hardy pioneers. 'No attempt has been made to perpetuate the fame of this great family in song and story rather the author has \vritten, in plain and unpolished words, their rugged history. After all what could be more eloquent than the simple and hardy annals of the forebears of an honest and prosperous commonwealth whose efforts at building a sturdy citizenship have prevailed. Then too, no community is greater than the noble traditions and sentiments which it cherishes; so likewise is it with the individual. Wherefore, the writer prays the reader's leniency only as to gram- matical construction for no apology is needed and none is offered for the record of achievements of the several generations herein enumerated. Pardon is requested at this juncture for a personal allusion to the author : The author is by no means a finished scholar having attended the old field schools but a few. months all told and going only at rare intervals, but in those rugged log temples — really monuments to the early efforts of each community's foremost educators — he at least learned the value of an education and was inspired to continue his eager search of knowledge. Those facts being true the author has made no pretention at preempting the field of the rhetorician nor has he given his personal opinions ; he has given the facts and the word- history as handed down. With these prefatory facts ever before you it is asked of you that you read the book with an eye single to acquisition of historical fact rather than grammatical precision. S. C. Jones. HAMRICK GENERATIONS The purpose of this book is to show the future generations the genealogy of the Hamrick Family. The Hamrieks are of German descent yet in their vein^ today flows the blood of the Irish, Scotch- Irish, English and French. So it is hard to tell what are the leading characteristics of this people ; whether the stubbornness of the Scotch, the quick temper of the Irish or the lack of humor of the English. The spirit of the Hamrick of today has given him traits which char- acterize him as a law abiding, peace loving citizen. The Hamrieks are like the children of Israel, they too cannot be numbered by multi- tudes. The Children of Israel were like the sands of the sea, they could not be numbered by multitudes, just so with the Hamrieks. In almost every state in the union the Hamrieks are found ; some are farmers, some are lawyers, doctors, manufacturers, merchants, jew- elers, school teachers both in public and private schools, electricians, magistrates, legislators, congTessmen, judges, preachers, and in fact in everv pursuit vou find the Hamrieks enaao-ed. The Hamrieks came to America in 1731. George Hamrick left Germany on account of his religion as he was not allowed to worship God according to the dictates of his ov»-n conscience, none daring to molest or make him afraid. He was a predestinarian Baptist or what we call the Primitive or Hard Shell Baptist and I have it from the lips of Old Uncle Berry Hamrick that all of the old set of Ham- rieks were Primitive Baptists and but few of them ever joined the church but all of them were ready and able to give a good reason for their hope of a better world beyond this vale of tears. The Hamrieks are generally fond of out door life and are among the best farmers of the land today. Some are poor and some are good livers while others are rich, or what we call rich people in the South. Physically they are strong and hearty ; mentally they are among the highest order 10 History of the Hamrick Generations of the land. It has been repeatedly published that if yon marry kinspeople that your offspring will be deaf, dumb, lame and blind, also mentally weak. If this be true then I make the assertion that there is not a Hamrick in all the land who would have sense enough to go to the mill and back by himself. Eighty per cent of the Ham- rick generation have married their kin from the time they crossed the water. In olden times when a man went to look out a bride for him- self the Lord told him plainly to go among his own kin, even his first cousins and we have the same God today that we had thousands of years ago. I have searched all the court records and I have only found six of this large generation ever indicted in the criminal court. They are honest, law abiding people. Old David Webb once said that he was not afraid to sell goods to a Hamrick on credit and so instructed his son Hatcher to sell anything to the Hamricks on time and without mortgage. I have found some Hamricks who say they are not related to the other set of Hamricks "just across the river." I have searched the records and they show that only one Hamrick ever crossed the water. He left Germany in the year 1730 and landed at Philadelphia, Pa., in 1731, being seven months on the waters. He sailed from Rotterdam, Holland. The original name was Homrick, but today we spell it Hamrick. Xow the Hamricks in- clude and contemplate the Greens, the Blantons, the Bridges, Har- rells, McSwains, Champions, Washburns, Wrays, Suttles, Bosticks, Ledbetters, Doggetts, Conners, Hughes, Magnesses, McBrayers, Webbs, Lovelaces and Williamsons. I don't think you will find any better people than found in tliis large generation of people. It has been in my mind for many years to write a history of the Hamrick generations or family, but I did not think then that they covered the land as water covers the sea. When I was young my dear mother would sit and tell all about her kin people and my grandmother, Peggy Hamrick, as she was called, would sit till midnight and tell all about her relatives. Neither of them had much education but very retentive minds and could tell one all about their family history. I have sat and heard iheiu talk till 1 thought everybody was related to them but I never experienced it till I began getting up this record. History of the Hamrick Generations 11 I have a small book iu which I began to take notes as long ago as 1870 and I had kept getting up a few more facts here and there until 1910. I went to work at this book with the intention of getting up this record of the Hamrick family but if I had known then what I do now I would never have undertaken the task. This has been one of the most stupendous jobs I have ever undertaken. I have made two trips to Washington and four trips to Raleigh and have searched all records to find out this family and I am just now to "baker." Old Aunt "Sookie" Hamrick, as she was called, gave me a great deal of information about the Hamricks. Her name was Susanna Hamrick but they called her "Sookie" as a nickname, Leander Ham- rick has been a great help to me in this work also his brothers, John and Sidney. James Y. Hamrick, now dead, was also of great benefit to me, as ho had a fine memorv which enabled him to tell all about his relatives. But I owe the greatest part of my help to one whom I dearly loved, to-wit. Old Uncle Berry Hamrick. I have sat for days at a time and asked him many questions about the Hamrick genera- tions: He could sit and tell one something new about them all the time and all about whom they married and where they settled. He said he had visited every old Hamrick who had ever come to this part of the country and he could tell one just what kind of a house each lived in and all about how they farmed. Uncle Berry lived to be ninety-eighi years old and had a splendid memory especially as to his kin-people. The early Hamrick houses were made of logs and daubed with mud with two doors and two windows. One window at the fire place and the other at the back end of the house. Some had what they called double cabins or two houses built together, with the chimneys reaching from one side of the house to the other or nearly so. They w^ere generally from eight to ten feet wide and provided with w'hat was called a pot rack, a pole up in the chimney to hang a pot on. Uncle Berry Hamrick said that many of their houses had no floors as there were no saw mills in this countrv at that time. A great many of their houses had no shutters and the doors were filled with logs and poles to keep out the wild animals of which there were 12 History of the Hamrick Generations f ,0*^9' J. Y. Hamrick DECEASED History of the Hameick Generations 13 a great many in those days. Some of them kept a fire all night in or- der to keep the wild animals from entering their houses. When George Hamrick left Germany he was an officer under the Kaiser, something on the order of Examiner of Passports for those going or coming across the ocean. Dr. W. C. Hamrick, of Gaffney, S. C, has several letters stating that there is a large sum of money in Germany for the heirs of one George Hamrick who left there about the same time George Hamrick came to this country, but there is no credence to be to be put in such idle reports. This George Hamrick settled in what is now known as Germantown, Pa., and there is at that place a monument marking his last resting place. He was the father of twenty-four children but I have failed so far to get more than seventeen of them and this book contemplates only three of them. ISFow I will give some of their names which are as follows: George, David, william, Moses, Thomas, John, Elijah, Greenberry, James, Reuben, Jane, Susanna, Hannah, Rebecca^, Mollie, Mary, Sarah and Benjamin. Three of his boys settled in Virginia their names were Moses Richard, George and Banjamin. They died and were buried in Virgina but most of their children came to l^orth Carolina about the year 1765. Benjamin's people all went on to Georgia and Alabama about the year 1830. Most all of Moses Richard's people went to Georgia and Alabama and some further West. The Hamricks came here before there was any county as the records show that Trvoii Countv was formed in 1769, four years after thev arrived. A great many of the Hamricks left here about 1830, or later. The Hamricks, Blantons, Greens, Bridges, Champions, Wash- burns, Bowens, McSwains all came across the ocean with George Ham- rick. The Blantons are of English descent, George Blanton was the first Blanton that ever crossed the ocean. Gabriel Washburn was from Germany, Henry Green came from England, Housand Harrell came also from England, William Champion was from France. ISTow I will give as nearly as possible the places where these people 14 HlSTORT OF THE HaMRICK GENERATIONS settled, and where thej were buried. I think it would be a good thing to have a meeting some time in the future and pay some respect to our beloved dead, as they were the pioneers and founders of this g-reat section. I have visited all of the old graves of all these people men- tioned above. There have been from 'seven to ten generations count- ing those that have passed away and those still living. Samuel Hamrick entered land in 1797, one-half mile from Mt. Sinai Church and settled about two hundred yards from the old -McSwain grave yard. In 1814 he entered land one-half mile east of Boiling Springs Church, just where George Eobertson Hamrick lives. He was buried at what is known as the Katie Hamrick old place, two miles east of Boiling Springs Church. James Hamrick, his brother, entered land at what is kno^\ai as the Katie Hamrick old place in the year 1795, also in 1800. Jones Hamrick entered lands at what is known as the Dr. Miller old place on the west side of First Broad river. He was brother to James and Samuel Hamrick. Jones went West about the year 1830. Frederick Hamrick entered land in 1800 near the present Patterson Station. He went West about the year 1830. He was a brother to James and Samuel Hamrick. Price Hamrick entered land in 1797, five miles west of Selby on what is now known as the Dock F. McSwain old place and was buried at the same place. His brother, Enoch Hamrick, entered land m 1800 on the west side of First Board river where Esley Davis once lived. He was buried down the river not far from William Latti- more's. Nathaniel Hamrick entered land in 1797 on the waters of Hickory creek and First Broad river. This land is now owned by Major Sam Green. Nathaniel was buried at Old Buffalo Church, York, S. C. He was a brother to Price Hamrick. Jeremiah Hamrick entered land just below the mouth of Hickory HlSTOEY OF THE HaMRICK GENERATIONS 15 creek on the east side of First Broad river. He went to Alabama about the year 1830. He was also a brother to Price Hamrick. Henry Haini-ick entered land on what is known as Bowen's river, just on the east side of the stream and now owned by John Crawford. He was buried at Buffalo Church, York, S. C. Yelverton Hamrick entered land near Patterson Station and went West about the year 1830. He was also a brother to Price Hamrick. David McSwain came from Scotland and settled near the McSwain old grave yard on the east side of First Broad river at what is now known as the Buck McSwain old place. He was the first white per- son buried in this part of the country. He was buried at the Mc- Swain old grave yard. N^ext I shall tell how Bowen's river got its name. The Hamricks and Bowens camped on the river the first night they came into this country and Minor Bowen gave this creek the name of Bowen's river. He gave nicknames to all people and places. This river heads in Earl Station and runs south and empties into Main Broad river just below Buffalo Church, York, S. C. Minor Bowen settled on the west side of this river and just oppo- site where Henry Hamrick settled. George Blanton entered land on the west side of Sandy Eun creek, two and one-half miles southeast of Boiling Springs church. He married Elvira Lee and was buried at his old place. He was the first Justice of Peace in Try on county appointed by King George of Eng- land on JSTovember 10th, 1769, the year the county was formed. Tryon county reached from the Virginia line and ran southwest to about where Charlotte is now located. It struck the main Broad river where the two states now join. All of this western country was Tryon county. Gabriel Washburn entered land in Burke county but later moved to Eutherford county in 1820. He married Priscilla McSwain and was buried on the Berryman McSwain old farm. 16 History of the Hamrick Generations Isaac Robertson entered land on the west side of Grogg creek near the Dock Rollins old place. He married Rebecca House and she made a trip every year to Virginia to see her people, walking there and back. At one time her sister came home with her and while here took sick and died and was buried at the Isaac Robertson old place. The heirs of Isaac Robertson raised money to put up a monu- ment at his grave. Isaac Robertson was a Revolutionary soldier and belonged to Sharp's Company. All of the Elijah Hamrick and Avife Margaret McSwain children are eligible to join the Daughters of the Revolution through Isaac Robertson lineage. Margaret Hamrick's mother was Catherine Rob- ertson, daughter of Isaac Robertson. All of Moses Hamrick's people can join the Daughters of the Revo- lution through Isaac Robertson, as Moses Hamrick married Sarah Robertson, Isaac's daughter. Henry Green came here with the Hamricks and married Nanc^y Reaves. He settled not far from Boiling Springs. Housand Har- rell settled on the east side of Beaver Dam creek, one mile north- west of Beaver Dam church, on the north side of the Rutherford and Shelby road just below the Bill Bowen place and was bviried at the Aletha Green place, near Ellenboro. He was elected to the Legislature from Rutherford county in 1804 and rode horseback to Raleigh and there bought his first saddle. He married Delphia Street. William Champion settled on the east side of Main Broad river just below the mouth of Sandy Run creek. He married Mollie Ham- rick and was buried at his old home place. James Bridges settled one mile North of Mount Sinai church at what is now known as the Rufus Hamrick old place and was buried three hundred yards north of liis old ])lacc. He was one of the first deacons of Buffalo Church. He mai-ried Rebecca Hamrick. William ^FcSwain mnrriod Susanna TTnmrick and settled near his History of the Hameick Generations 17 father, David, on the east side of First Broad river. He was buried at the McSwain old grave yard. His son, William, married Jnda Moore. He served in the Revolutionary War in Brevard's Company. All of his descendants can join the Daughters of the Revolution through him. I do hope his descendants will erect a monument to his memory. What a nice thing it would be if the people would erect some monument to the last resting place of all these old settlers who first came into this country. Parenthetically I remind that I have traveled several thousand miles, mostly a foot, from house to house, spending several hundred dollars in getting up this work, but if I never pi'ofit further than that of having the satisfaction of having written the history of this great family's achievements I shall be content. 'Now we have nineteen of the different families of this and Rutherford county. These people are among the very best in both counties. You may search the world over and you will not find any better people and as few backward ones in all the land. I have searched the court records and found but few of all these people who had any trouble with the courts. Next I will write of the Blantons. They are good law abiding citizens and are among the very best people of this country. It is seldom you see their names in any court proceedings except when pre- scribed by business ends. They are good farmers and very thrifty in all their business affairs and undertakings. The McSwains who are very numerous are very good farmers and law abiding citizens. One never sees their names in court unless per- chance it is to obtain some right prescribed by law. They practice attending to their own affairs as much so as any family of people in the land. Then there are the Greens. They are good honest people. Good farmers and law abiding and peace loving citizens. We should not look on the faults of one or two persons and judge the others by their 2 18 History of the Hamrick Generations conduct but I am speaking of all these people as a whole, their record as a family is inspiring. l^ext the Bridges. They are good people, good farmers and law abiding citizens, honest in all their dealings with mankind. I only- found one or two bv the name who have figured in the courts. Then we take up the Champions. Thev, too, are good people and it is seldom you see their names in the court records. They are good farmers, honest and upright in their dealings with their fello^vman. Some of the old set were of very decided temperaments, but as a whole they are good people, doing well their parts. The Wrays are also very good people and are among the best peo- ple in the country. I don't think I found a single Wray who had had any trouble in the courts. They are honest, sober and good farmers. Then we take up the Suttles and we find them to be very fine people, honest in all their dealings, peace loving and law abiding citizens. They are among the best people of this country. Then here is the Bostic family. Tliey arc very good people al- though there are not many farmers among them, nevertheless they seem to be inclined towards serving the public. They are honest and upright in their dealings, law abiding and peace loving citizens. The Harrells are also very good people and I never found an}' of them in court trouble. Some of them are verv 2:ood farmers but taken as a whole Ihey like public service and business life. Then we take up the "Washburn family. They are all very good people and have among them some very good farmers, but they, too, are inclined to be public men. They are honest and one seldom finds their names on the criminal docket. Tlien come the Connors. ]\rost of these people are inclined to be farmers and are among our very best people. They give the courts very little trouble. This speaks well for any family. History of the Hamrick Generations 19 ;N^ext we take up the Magness family. These are good, h^w abid- ing, people, honest and thrifty and boasting but few farmers. Then we take up the Mathenys and we find them to be among the very best people of the land, honest iu all their dealings and good farmers. This history covers every Matheny that ever came to this country. They are of Irish descent. 'Next we speak of the Hughes. We find them good people and I never found but one of this name who ever gave the courts any trouble. They are mostly farmers yet we find some of them engaged in publixj works. Then we take up the McBrayer family. We find them to be among the best people of this country. They are law abiding and peace loving people. They seem to be inclined as a whole to public life rather than to the farm, though some of them are successful farmers. Xext comes the Webbs. We find them among our very best people. They also seem to be inclined to public service rather than to the farm. I have never found anv of their names on the criminal docket, althoua'h the name boasts some of the state's leadino- iurists. Then we take up the Lovelaces. These people are mostly inclined to farming and yet we see some of them in public life. They are good people, honest in all their dealings, and I never found but a few of them on the criminal docket. Then we take up the Williamsons and v/e find most of them farmers. They are among the very best people of the land. I never found many of the name on the criminal docket ; they are kind and neigh- borly. Then we take up the Doggetts and we find them good, law abiding and peace loving people, yet we find very few farmers among them, though they seem possessed lovers of stock and stock-trading. Then we take up the Byers family, for nearly all of them are in this history. They are good people, law abiding and peace loving, yet 20 History of the Hamrick Generations there are few farmers among tliem. Some liave been public office holders. I have been very brief in speaking of all these different families as they are all kindred characters and families. All are good people — just as good as one finds in all the land. I have expended my best efforts in compiling a complete history of the Hamrick generations, yet it is not as complete as I should wish it to be. Then, too, I know that mortal man is not perfect, so if you see a mistake in this work do not make mockery of that which is intended to be good. Then, too, think that the one who has labored so faithfully never went to school six months in all his life. It was said that the writer could not get up this history, but God being my helper, I am about completing it. About ninety per cent of the present generations are Baptists and Democrats. We were about to omit mentioning the Turners who are concerned in this w^ork. They, too, are among the very best people in this country. They are. mostly farmers, honest and upright in all their dealings with their f ellowman. JSTow we come to speak of the condition of the country at the time that these pioneer families came here. There were no white people here at that time. Vast tribes of Indians inhabited this section. One tribe six miles south of Shelby, near the Frank Young old place, one south of Boiling Springs, one near Grassy Pond and one tribe near Forest City. So you can see that the future looked very dark for these people. Some of the early settlers herein nientioneil were killed by savages, some carried off and were never heard of again. When the Ilamricks came here they nearly all came in what is known as a slide or sled, as such vehicles are called. When they came to a river canoes were made of large trees and all of their possessions put in these and taken across. Uncle Berry Hamrick said that he saw many years afterward some of the sleds that brought them here at his grandfather's, Samuel Hamrick's. Wlien these pioneers came here they cleared up their lands by cutting out llu; younger growth. This was done with a mattock. They killed the large trees. After being History of the Hamkick Generations 21 cleared the land was dug up with a mattock. Afterward they made a crude plow stock out of a crooked tree^ as nearly the shape of our plow stocks of today as they could make them. Then they had what was called a mold board which they fastened to the plow stock and made tight with a wedge. With this they plowed their lands. Their traces and lines were made of bark as there were no shops of iron in this country at that time. Most of them used oxen as the only means of draft animals for cultivatins; their lands. Tliev took a piece of crooked wood and hewed it out so as to form a yoke, the traces were fastened thereto. They worked their oxen from early in the niorning until late at night, then they turned them out to graze. They brought a little corn with them when they came to this country. Some they planted and some they saved for bread. Most of the corn gave out before they could make a crop and there were two or three months in which they had to go without bread. J^aturally they suffered many hardships which to this present generation would seem to be unbearable. They killed wild game which they ate. They went to work early in the morning and worked until about nine o'clock, then ate, then back to their work where they remained until about four in the afternoon at which time they would eat again. They ate twice a day and only sparingly at that. It was about ten years after they came into this country before they sowed any wheat as they brought none with them. But about this time some people came from Virginia into this section who brought wheat. Governed by the Golden Rule^ they divided this wheat, giv- ing nearly every one a portion. I^ow they threshed their wheat by digging the ground down to the hard clay then took a maul and beat the gTOund until it was very hard. Then they drove a post in the mid- dle of this hole and put a shaft in the post, then hitched an ox or oxen to the shaft. Then the wheat was strown all around and as the oxen went around they trod out the wheat. Uncle Berry Hamrick said the oxen wiiich were used in treading out the wheat were never muz- zled. Tlien they put the wheat into a vessel, two men got hold of a sheet and they raised a wind by warping the sheet so as to fan the chaff awav. Thev then erround the wheat in what is called a hominv mill 22 History of the Hamrick Generations and sifted it through a single slade cloth. Then the flour was made into bread without any soda or shortening. The mill was made by taking a large tree and digging out a hopper in it about a foot deep and lined it with large headed nails. Then they took a large piece of wood and shaped it like a maul. With it they beat up the. corn. Also they took another maul very much like the first one and fastened a large piece of wood to it, then tied a large rock to the other end of the pole, two men pulled up the beater and the rock pulled it back down. In this way the corn was ground. They also made another sort of mill : This they fastened to limb on a tree and the limb helped them to manage the mill. They also used still another sort : They took a large tree and dug a trough in one end and had a piece about four feet long under the other end. Then they turned the water into the trough and when the trough was filled with water the other end went downed and poured out the water. This made the heavier end come down so hard that it beat up the corn. The corn which was finely ground they used for meal and the coarser was used for hominy. A picture showing this old hominy mill is re- produced in this w'ork. FIEST CHUECH A period of twenty-one years elapsed after they came into this country before there were any church buildings. Buffalo Church in York countv, South Carolina, was the first church organized in this part of the country. It was organized in the year 17SG. So you see these old settlers had no })lace to go to church but nothing daunted them. They had meetings in private homes. Joseph Camp was the first pastor of Bufl^alo church and James Bridges was the first named deacon. His iiiimc is mentioned in this book. Now I will <'(nnc as near as I can in describing the old church building. It was about forty feet long, twenty-five feet wide and about twelve feet high. The cracks were from four to six inches wide and were not daubed with mud like their dwclUng houses, but were left open. It had two doors History of the Hamrick Generations 23 OLD BUFFALO CHtTRCH HOUSE IN YORK COUNTY, S. C. — THE FIRST CHURCH IN WESTERN NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA (bAPTIST). DEDICATED IN THE YEAR 17S6 24 HiSTORT OF THE HaMRICK GENERATIONS in it and one window. A door was at each end and the window was in the middle just over the "stand." The house was covered with four foot boards which were fastened on with wooden pins and then hung over the rib poles. Three feet of the boards were exposed. The end logs went to the top of the building. The building had a partition in the back end and this space was reserved for colored people. The doors and windows were hung on wooden hinges and the doors were fastened with wooden latches. I show in this book an illustration of this old building. "When the people went to church in those days they walked back and forth. They usually went to church on Saturday and then walked back on Sunday. The women wore home spun dresses made of materials which they had carded and spun by hand. Their shoes were made of home made leather over a very course last. The heels were as large as the shoe was wide. Wlien they went to church the women went bare footed and carried their shoes with them. When nearing the meeting place they sat down and put on their shoes. The church had no chimney so they were kept warm by the fiery discourse and arguments of the preacher who warmed up the whole congrega- tion, and the fire burned the chaff, for it was salvation by grace alone and this always burns the chaff. The people walked from eight to ten miles to hear the Gospel in those days and never seemed to get tired. The benches in the church were logs split open, one log making two benches. In 1789 Sandv Eun church was built verv much on the same style as the Buffalo church. The deeds of both these old churches were made to the Predestinarian Baptists as one can see by the records. SLEDS Almost everybody knows something about a slide or sled. They were made from eight to ten feet long with two runners. The front ends were cnrvod so as to run over rough })laces and stumps. Most of the slides had standards. Tlic slides, or sleds, were boxed up and a whole family could get into one slide, or sled, and go to "preachin' " or move from one place to another in them. Old Uncle James Ham- History of the Hamrick Geis^erations 25 rick, "Jeems," as lie was called, would put liis wife and five or six children in one of these slides, or sleds, and go to visit "Aunt Polly's" father, miles awav. THE TEEAD MILL In later years they made a pen of rails about four feet high and covered it over with rails. When their wheat got ripe they cut it and laid it into these pens, then took a hickory pole and beat out the wheat and cleaned it in the same manner as before stated. Later they in- vented a thresher which had wooden teeth in it. This thresher was run by confining a horse in a certain position and the horse kept tramping with his fore feet, one foot upon one paddle and one foot upon another. By this process they operated the thresher which threshed out the wheat. I have seen this done, and still in some places they clean the wheat in the manner above stated, that is known as the treadmill. SAW MILL Now in those days they had what they called a whip saw. It was- the only kind of saw mill the people had in those days with which to saw plank. This saw mill was mounted on a hill side with a scaffold built about 10 feet high. They hewed one side of the log and then lined it off with a blacking line, the lines just as far apart as they wanted the planks sawed. One man stood on the ground and another upon the top of the log in order that he might see the lines. The man pulled up and another pulled down and in this way the planks were sawed. One person sat on the top of the log and drove a wedge in behind the saw so as to keep the saw from pinching. I have a finger now missing that was cut off by one of these saw mills while tightening the wedge. I show a cut of the old whip saw mill in this book. Two good men could saw from four to five hundred feet of lumber in a day, but it was hard work. 26 History of the Hamrick Generations FUEXITUEE OF THE SETTLEES Uncle Berry Hamrick said that many of these old settlers had no beds when they came to this country. They got some oak leaves and made a bed in one corner of the house. Some had what they called a bedstead. It had only one leg or post and it stood out in the middle of the room. A hole bored in one side of the house and a hole in the bed post and a railing put into these holes ; the other was made the same way and slats were laid across the railings, then the bed clothes were put on. I have seen many of these old bedsteads in Mitchell and Yancey counties in this state. Bed curtains were hung on these beds, the curtains hunc from the bed to the floor. FLAX Xow I will tell you something about raising flax and tlie manner of preparing it for cloth. The settlers planted the flax in a low wet place and v;hen ripe it was cut and soaked in water for several days. Then it was dried and beaten with poles. Next it was put into a "break" ; which was made with four slats on the bottom about three inches apart and about five feet long with three pieces on top as long as the bottom pieces. The top pieces went down through the bottom pieces and the flax was laid between them and when they came down together they broke up the flax into smaller workable bits. Then a paddle about tliree feet long and four inches wide and about one inch thick, sharp on both edges like an old fashioned butcher knife was used. jSText the flax was taken in one hand and the singling knife in the other and the flax was beaten to pieces. Then what was called a hackle was used. This hackle was made as follows: A piece uf ])lank was used about four feet long and six inches wide, two inches thick and about one hundred sharp spikes made out of steel were driven into it. These spikes were about six inches long and about two inches apart with about four iuclies exposed. The flax was taken and slashed witli these sharp spikes until it was cut very fine, following that it was spun on wliat is called a flax wheel. An illustration of this History of the Hamrick Generations 27 old fashioned flax wheel is shown in this book. Then the flax was woven in a loom and finally made into clothing, both for men and women. The flax was never colored, being manufactured in the origi- nal color. I have seen many dresses made of the flax cloth, which was durable and lasting. COTTOIT CULTURE In the year 1815 the people began to raise cotton. They planted it like corn, covering it with a plow. In a few days they knocked the top soil oJf with a board. When the cotton came up a hoe was used and one person on one side and another on the other scraped the row from one end to the other. They never thought of cutting up a single stalk. They were very careful about cutting cotton up. When the cotton came up it was about six inches wide across the row. They made from two to three hundred pounds of seed cotton to the acre. They never used anv manure or anv kind of fertilizer in those davs. After the cotton was gathered they picked off every particle of trash and picked out the seed with their fingers. ISText they washed the lint as clean as they could. Then it was dried, carded and spun. They used a reel, what was called a cracking reel : Some of these reels took one hundred and twentv threads to make a cut and five cuts made a yard. Some had one hundred threads to the cut and it took six threads to make a cut. These reels did their own counting and when they got a cut they cracked off. This thread was taken and put upon a pair of winding blades and it was wound off on spools. Then it was warped on a pair of warping bars. Xext the thread was put on the beam of the loom, then through the harness and through the sleigh and around the small beams of the loom. Then the thread was woven into cloth. The cloth was colored and afterward made into clothing. A cut is shown of an old loom also the old cracking reel and winding blades in this book. Some time later what was called a wooden cotton gin was invented. This gin was made with two wooden rollers, one on top of the other, and as close as they could be. These rollers had a crank on one side 28 History of the Hamrick Generations whicli was turned and one roller turned them both. So the rollers ran together and the cotton was fed in between these rollers. The seed came out on the same side. I have it from Uncle Berry Hamrick that Samuel Hamrick in- vented the first wooden roller cotton gin in this country. I will also show a cut of the old wooden cotton gin in this book, similar to the one exhibited at the museum at Washington. WOOLEI^ CLOTH Afterward sheep raising was undertaken and woolen goods were then made in very much the same way as the cotton goods. The woolen goods were always colored with dj'e flowers or walnut bark or some kind of coloring. Indigo was raised in those days and the peo- ple colored much of their cloth with it A good spinner could card and spin a yard of thread a day, which was great speed for those days. The raising of cotton entailed the use of what was called a hogs- head. This was a lar<2:e tree cut down and burned or cut out as thin as one could make it. A head was put in one end, the hogshead filled with cotton and packed with a press, on the style of an old fashioned cider press. Then the other end was planked up and a shaft put through the hogshead and shafts to the hogshead. Then a horse or oxen was hitched to it and the cargo carried to market at Columbia or Charleston, S. C. The tobacco was also carried to mar- ket in the same manner. Charleston and Columbia were the only markets in those days. WAGONS The wlieels of the first wagons were made of two pieces of wood, about eight inches wide niid throe inches thick and five feet long. They were put across one anotlier. The axle tree was put into the middle of these pieces and a wooden rim as thick as a large spoke and HlSTOKY OF THE HaMRICK GENERATIONS 29 the rim was fastened to the spokes with wooden pins. I have seen many of these old fashioned wagons in the mountains of this state. I tell you that the people had a hard time in those days. Just think for a moment of leaving father and mother, brother and sister and loved ones and going off into a strange unsettled land where no white people lived and where you expected to never see your loved ones again or hear any more from them in this life, for they never had a postoffice away back in those days. The first mail ever carried in the United States was in 1804, and the first stamps were used in the year 1847. So you, see they never heard from home or loved ones any more lafter leaving them. They had no knives or forks, for the first ones manufac- tured in America were made in 1814. So they had to make good use of their hands in those days. A lot of them made wooden knives, forks, spoons and bowls. They also had wooden plates and wooden cups and saucers. Some time later they made all these things out of pewter and soapstone. OTHEE I:NVEKTI0^S The first steamship crossed the Atlantic in 1819. It made its trip in about forty days. The first printing press made in America was in 1814. The first newspaper was published in Boston, Mass., in 1704. It was the Boston ISTews, April 24th, 1704. This newspaper which was very small was printed by hand. The first railroad in the United States was in 1828. The first telegraph in 1835. The first sewing machine in 1846 w^as invented by Elias Howe. The first clock in 1836 was invented by Eli Terry. First electric lights in 1844. The first leather ever tanned in the United States was in 1795. The first matches were made in 1805 and cost ten cents for sixty matches. The first saw mill was in England in 1770. The first spinning jinny in 1767. It had only eight spindles. So you see that all these first settlers were deprived of every new inven- tion that we are now enjoying. Back in those early days almost all of the settlers made and used whiskey in some way or form. You seldom heard of any one getting 30 History of the Hamrick Generations drunk. The preachers made and used it, also the deacons and church members. Xo one ever thought of slighting his brother in the church for drinking. I have it from the records that one of the best preachers in those days had a still and if he did not make whiskey himself he had it done. One Baptist preacher would still till meeting time, then go and preach, then back to the still that evening. That has not been more than sixty years ago. Yes, thev liad fiddling in those days and one of the best preachers would go to church and preach and then go l)ack liomo to play his fid- dle. He never played such vulgar tunes as they do in these days. The fiddle was considered very creditable in those days. They had no moiu*ners' bench in those days at the church as the first mourners' bench was erected in 1835 by Lorenzo Dowe. I have his book and he tells just how he got the mourners' bench started. Also the first protracted meeting. He went through this country in the year 1835. My mother said that she had heard him preach sev- eral times. He tried with all his might to get a stir among the people but failed. As he was going along one day near the state line in South Carolina he saw a little negro boy blowing an old tin bugle. His name was Gabriel. He said that he had never heard the like in all his da^'S, that it almost made the hair rise on his head. He asked the little negro if he would go witli him and blow the bugle for him. He finally persuaded the little negro to go with him. They both went on together before time for preaching. He got the negro Gabriel to climb the tree in the church yard and stay u\\ in the tree until the crowd gathered, and when he heard the preacher come over the name ''Gabriel" for him to blow the bugle with nil his might. AVhcn the preacher began preaching that night he tried with all his might to get the people's hearts astir but failed. Tlien Lorenzo Dowe. the preacher, came down with his fist on the book board as hard as he could and at the same time uttered these words: "And wliat if you were to hear Gabriel sound liis mighty trumpet tonight. What would you do?" Then the negro Gabriel in the tree sounded his trumpet with nil liis might. Tliey came tumbling over each other, both men History of the Hameick Geis^erations 31 and women, both old and young. The hke was never seen. Lorenzo Dowe had no trouble the next night in getting people to the mourners' bench. THE OLD SETTLEES' COURTSHIPS Well I will give a few courtships of some of the old Hamricks. There was one Moses Hamrick who was going to see Sarah Robertson. I suppose thev had the match made up. However, one day Moses was ploughing along when all of a sudden he decided that it was as good a time for him to get married as he would ever have. He stopped his plow, took out his horse and rode him off the field with his old clothes on and rode about ten miles over to Isaac Robertson's, the father of Sarah. When he got there Sarah was down at the wash place and he went on do^\Ti there. When he got there he said, "Sarah this is as good a time to marry as we will ever have." "Yes," said Sarah, "But where are your clothes ?" Moses says, "I have them on." "Well," said Sarah. "If you are ready I am too. Where is the preacher?" Then Moses said, "He is up here." They were both married in their everv dav clothes. This is no ioke, it is the plain truth for there are many witnesses to prove this statement. jSTow I will give you the courtship of Old Uncle "Jeames" Hamrick, as he was called. This he told me from his own lips. He was going to his Uncle Billy McSwains' to see Aunt "Polly" and he said they talked of marrying but he was like Ben Purdle, he could not get his "blame" mouth off. So he went on in that way for months and every time that he would go to Uncle Billy's he would try to get his mouth to ffo off but it would not. So one Saturdav evening he went again to Uncle Billy's and when he got there there was no one at the house but Aunt "Polly," He shook hands with her and as he took hold of her hand he says "Polly would you have a body ?" "Why yes, Jeames you know I would," This was all of their courtship for they were married the next Sunday. I suppose it does not make so much difference as to the amount of words used as it does the love 3'ou have for one another. I think if there ever was a couple who loved one 32 History of the Hamkick Generations another it was Uncle "Jeaines" and Aunt Polly. I once knew a man who went to see a woman twenty years and married her, then killed her. A hundred years ago you never heard of any divorces. They married in those days for love, but today they seem to marry for the fun of it. It has been recently published that forty per cent of the people that marry today get a divorce. In the old days if a person made a debt the account was put on the books and it was good. You can't say that today, for some people will sit in the Amen corner, sign a mortgage and then lie awake .that night planning how to beat the other fellow out of the money. The people back in those days were very poor farmers. They ran their rows up and down the hills. You can see some sign. of their poor farming today. In a few years they had to clear up another field as the other land was washed away. They never valued timber as worth anything. There has been enough of good forest timber burnt up and destroyed in the field which if we had it today it would build almost every house in America. They cut the large pines down and burned them up on the ground and let some of them lie and rot. They never studied about riches as do the people of today. "When you struck them on religious matters they were up-to-date. Oh ! what a change has taken place since forty years ago. CAPTAIN MAGNESS All of Benjamin ]\Iagness' descendants can join the Daughters of the Revolution through him. He was a captain in the Revolutionary army. He first married Elizabeth Mauney and then later married Sarah "Walker. Almost all of the Hamricks were in favor of the freedom of this country but there were only a few who took any active part, nor were they called upon to do so owing to the sparsely settled community. Xow I will give a little episode and I suppose it was true. I have if from some of the younger set of Hamricks. On one occasion one -of the old Hamricks took on n little too much booze and went to his History of the Hamkick Generations 33 brother Billy's and asked him to get up and give him some more booze. Bill}- told him plainly that he would not give him any more. "You go home you have too much now," said Billy. Asa says, "If you don't give me some whiskey I will jump into the well." "Go ahead," says Billy. In a few minutes they heard Asa hit the bottom of the well. The well was ninety-four feet deep. Billy jumped out to see and sure enough Asa was in the well. Then Billv had to tear down the beadstead to get ropes to pull Asa out. As they rolled him out he said "Eoll, Billy EoU," and about every ten feet "Roll, Billy Eoll." So this became a by-word at log rollings. "Roll, Billy roll." At an- other time Asa and one of his sons were going along one night. Asa had on a little too much booze again. He stepped off into a new well about twenty feet deep. His son told him "to stay there" until he went home and got some one to help him out. Asa turned a new leaf after that and professed a hope in Jesus. I truly hope he is at rest. Old Uncle Berrv McDaniel and mv father were working at Elder Drury Dobbins.' He set some whiskey on the table and said "Breth- ren, if any of you want a little whisky here it is, but don't drink too much." Xow this is not mentioned to slander Elder Dobbins but only to show the use of whiskv in those davs. I am sure that no one es- teemed Elder Dobbins any higher than myself. The first person buried at Buffalo Church was a foreigner. He was passing the church yard with his gun when he saw a squirrel up one of the trees. He shot the squirrel and killed it. It lodged in the tree and he climbed up the tree and fell out and he himself was killed. They buried him at Buffalo Church in 1787, one year after the church was founded. Xo one ever found out the name of this man. I have this from old Uncle William Gaston, a member of the Buffalo Church. The first jDerson buried at Boiling Springs was Sarah Hamrick, a daughter of Reuben Hamrick and wife, Hannah McSwain. She was buried in 1806. She was only two years old. The first person buried at Bethel was George Hamrick, son of Reuben Hamrick and Hannah McSwain. He was buried the 9th of May, 1882. The first person buried at Double Springs was Elijah Hamrick, son of William Ham- 3 34 History of the Hamrick Generations rick and wife, Jane McSwain, on October lOtli, 1881. The first per- son buried at Beaver Dam was Hosev Harrell, son of John Harrell and wife Susanna Washburn. He was buried April 10th, 1871. The first person Imried at Wall's Church was Octavia Bridges, daugh- ter of Samuel Bridges and wife, Mary Winbrown, May 1st, 1877. So you see the Hamricks were the first in this country and the first to be buried at a number of the churches. Warren Hoyle, son of Mr. F. L. Hoyle and wife was the first person killed in the European war from this county. He is a descendant of George Hamrick, who crossed the Atlantic in the year 1731. The Hamrick generations lost many people both in the Civil and European War. I had eight first cousins killed in one battle in the Civil War. In 1881 a day's work brought fifty cents. Today it is worth from three to five dollars. Flour in 1881 was five dollars and fifty cents a sack. Home killed meat twenty cents a pound ; shoes from two to three dollars per pair; a suit of clothes eight to twelve dollars a suit. ]^ow I will give an example of the high cost of living. Consider the automobile and look at the enormous amount of money spent every day and night. If we only could keep an account of all the money spent for the above and say nothing about fruit stands and vaudeville shows and the like, then we would begin to see where the high cost of living comes in. I cut cross ties in 1886 for $8.00 a month and ate two meals a day. That was only thirty one cents a day, which would amount to fifty cents a daj^ with two meals added. Now I have a son making thirty two dollars for four and one-half nights' work. So I don't see any use of complaining about the high cost of living. It all comes from extravagant living. Cotton in 1881 was nine cents per pound. In 1919 it was forty cents per pound, over four times as much as it was in 1881. Guano was twenty-one dollars per ton; in 1919 it was sixty-five dollars per ton. PUZZLING CONNECTIONS Now I will give the readers of this book a few puzzles to work out. Since I liave l^een getting u]) tlio Hamrick History I have found five History of the Hamrick Gexeratioxs 35 families tliat had three great grandfathers and all three of them were brothers. I have fonnd five families that had three great grandmothers and all three of them were sisters. I have found three men whose grandfather and great-grandfather were brothers. I have found one man who had a first cousin and he and his first cousin's children were first cousins. I found one man who was his grandchildren's own uncle. I have found three people whose father was their uncle. Now can you find out these riddles ? They are all in the Hamrick generations. I have found three sons, thev and their father were brothers-in-law and vet -thev have sense enough to 2,0 to mill and back bv them- selves. Xow if you see any families that are not represented in this book you may know that they left here many years ago. Elijah Hamrick married Milly ]\IcSwain and went "West about seventy-five years ago. Hood Jolley and Eichard Hughes both married Hamricks and went to Missouri many years ago. Some of the Bridges went West as did some of the Harrells. Also some of the Blantons, McSwains and Washburns journeyed westward. Xow I have made an estimate of Georo-e Hamrick's descendants comine- here from Vireinia, and if the twentv-one other children mul- tiplied like the three who figure in this book there would be at least three hundred and fifteen thousand of these people in one hundred and ninetv vears. So vou see that thev are as the sands of the sea. Those three who are mentioned in this book have at least fifteen thou- sand descendants in one hundred and ninetv-one vears. Records of twenty-one children I was unable to get into this work. That looks like they are of Abraham's descendants. There has been a ereat chang-e in the last fiftv vears. Back then when passing a home you could hear the roar of the wheels and the cards and if vou should 2:0 in would hear them talkinsj about grandfather and grandmother, or some of their relatives. Today you will find one-fourth of the people talking politics and worldly matters. When you ask these people who was your grandfather or grandmother they can't tell you. I have asked many people since 36 History of the Hamrick Gei^erations I began this work who was your grandfather or grandmother and they couhl not saj. I asked one grown boy who his mother was before she married and lie conld not telL Back in those days the people used to visit one another and sit and tell their experiences and how they passed from law to grace. Today they are busy telling all about their corn and cotton and worldly affairs. You do not hear much said about religion, only what "they are doing for the Lord." The Bible says that many shall come in that day saying, "Lord, Lord, we have prophesied in thy name and in thy name done many wonderful works, and in thy name cast out devils," and the Lord shall say, "De- part from me for I never knew you." I will let the readers of this book judge between now and fifty years ago as to religious matters. Back in those days they would sit and tell what great things the Lord had done for their souls. I have heard my father and mother tell their experiences and then old people would come in and they would sit up imtil midnight telling their experiences. Some telling of their loved ones gone on before to a better land than this. FIEST STORE Xow the first store in all this part of the country was near Gaffney, S. C, and was owned by Mike Gaffney and another man by the name of McCosten. This store was running in 1800. Only a very few articles were kept in this small store. There was one Charles McSwaiii who was father of a boy about five years old. This boy was the reddest haired boy you ever saw. His father and mother thought very much of him. One day he went out to get something to make a fire and while away the Indians stole him. This was about the year 1800. As they thought so much of their red haired George they named tlie next boy born George. This boy was black haired. In 1812 tlie Indian war broke out and tlicy recaptured their son from the Indians. So you see they had two boys named George, one red haired and the other black haired. Uncle Berry Ham- rick said that he had seen both those boys. Neither of them ever mar- ried. Tliov liad a sister named ^^Fariiarct who mari'icil TIkuikis ^Foore. History of the Hamrick Generations 37 You have heard a great deal said about red headed George McSwain, this is what o'ave rise to the name. There was one of this generation shot at the stake in time of the Civil War. His name was George Washington McSwain. He was one of the best men in this part of the county and one of the best soldiers in the Civil War. He got a letter from home that his wife was in a bad state of affairs financially and that she wanted him to come home at once. He got a furlough for thirty days and when the time was up he failed to go back on account of the conditions at home. When thev came after him he was tried bv court-martial and con- demned to be shot at the stake. I will give a copy of his last letter that he wrote to his dear wife and children. It is very pathetic. Charles J. Hamrick and William Jasper Jones were dra^\^l to shoot him. Charles J. Hamrick got out by being related to the condemned man and McSwain was killed before Jones had fired. They both said that George McSwain was one of the best men in their company. Whereupon comes the following letter : Camp near Orange Court House, Virginia, January 3rd, 1864. Hannah, Dear Wife and dear Children: — It is with painful regret that I have to say to you in way of writing my last letter that I ever expect to write in this world to you, as my days are but few that I have to spend in this unfriendly world, as I expect to part this life next Saturday by sentence of a general court martial to be tied down to a stake on that day, the 9th of this month, and shot to death with muskets. But little thought I had of this when I volunteered in the service of my country to protect my home and family that my life would be taken by my own people simply from absenting myself from my post with the view of pro- tecting my little helpless children and affectionate wife who are as near and dear to me as my own life. Hannah, I was in very good heart and didn't think they would shoot me until yesterday morning. My sentence was read to me that I had to be shot next Saturday. It washed against me like the raging billows against a lonely rock in a sweeping storm, and I carefully examined myself and I feel well assured that when I leave the world that I will be better off than here. But to my little children and affectionate wife may the Lord prepare and fit them to meet me in heaven, for there will be no more TDarting of husbands and wives and dear children, but be rest for ever. Hannah, dear wife, and dear little children, I never expect to see you any more in this life. My prayers are that you will meet me in heaven. Do the best vou can, and may God in his mercy rest and remain with you 38 History of the Hamrick Generations forever. Dear wife, don't grieve nor trouble after me, for I feel that I am going to a better Avorld and be at rest. Then I won't be here to be punished any longer. ]My afflictions have been severe, and I feel that I will be better off when I leave this world. Tell all my friends farewell for me, and fare- well, dear wife, farewell, dear children. Prepare to meet me in heaven. I will close by saying, God bless my wife and little children. Farewell. (Signed) George W. Mc Swain.

Now I will give every reader of the book something to study about when thev have nothing to do but talk about one another. Read the Golden Rule and do unto others as you would that they do unto you. Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, pray for them that despitefully use and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake. History of the Hamrick GEjfERATioisrs 43 In speaking of a person's faults Pray don't forget your own. Remember those in homes of glass Should seldom throw a stone. If we have nothing else to do Than talk of those who sin, 'Tis better to commence at home, And from that place begin. We have no right to judge a man ' Until he's fairly tried; Then should we not like his company, ^f We know the world is wide. Some may have faults. Who has none? The old as well as young. Perhaps we may, for aught we know, Have fifty to their one. And though I sometimes hope to be Xo worse than some I know, My own shortcomings bid me let The faults of others go. Then let us all when we begin To slander friend or foe. Think of the harm one word may do To those we little know. Remember, curses sometimes, like Our chickens, roost at home; Then don't speak evil of others' faults Until we have none of our own. Oil ! "what a fine lesson is contained in the above piece of poetry if every one wonld heed it. 44 History of the Hameick Generations I've no mother now, I'm weeping, She has left me here alone; She beneath the sod is sleeping; Oh! there is no joy at home. Tears of sorrow now have parted Her bright smiles no more I see; All the loved ones too have parted, Oh! there is no joy at home. Chorus. Weeping, lonely, she has left me here; Weeping, lonely, for my mother dear. She was all this world to father, And she loved her children so, But she is now at rest with Jesus. Oh! I long, I long to go Where my mother's singing glory And the angels hovering 'round, All the saints of every nation. Oh! how sweet, how sweet the sound. — Chorus. Since my mother left me lonely, Death, that awful fiend, has come. And has taken from me my father, I'm an orphan child alone. Oh! when will the storm pass over, And the sun shine out again? Then I hope to meet my father And my mother once again. — Chorus. One by one my brothers going To a world unknown to me; And my sisters too have parted. Their bright faces no more I see. Time will only tell the story When I too will meet them there; But I hope and trust in Jesus All our troubles will be o'er. — Chorus. I'm an orphan now I'm weeping, All my dear ones now are gone, But I hope the time is coming When I'll meet them 'round the throne. Won't that be a hapi)y meeting? Glory, honor to His name; . There will be no more sad parting In the new Jerusalem. — Chorus. The above was compcsed by S. C. Jones on January 15, 1915, for the Hamrick generation. History of the Hamkick Genekatioists 45 I hear the cold winds sweeping, Through every vale and tree, Where my dear father's sleeping Away from home and me. Tears from my eyes are falling. Deep sorrow shades my brow; Cold in the grave he is sleeping, I have no father now. He was a loving father, A friend to all his foes; He is now at rest with Jesus, Where all good people go. Kind friends will cease to greet him, For death has paled his brow; I want to go and meet him, I have no father now. I see the darkness hovering Around my mother's grave; But, oh! that lonesome cottage, No mortal one can crave. I've thought of my dear mother With tears upon my brow; For she has gone and left me, I have no mother now. Sad was the hour of parting; She said in words so sweet: "My loved ones, now I'm dying, In glory we shall meet." I hope to meet my parents Upon the eternal shore; And there we'll dwell together. Where parting is no more. I had a little brother. The idol of my heart; But he, too, now is sleeping; How sad it is to part. The resurrection morning. When all the saints shall rise, They all shall live with Jesus, So far above the skies. I had a loving sister, To me she was so kind, But now I am so lonely. For I am left behind. But God saw fit to call her; Farewell, we all must part, And meet dear ones in glory. And there no more to part. This was composed by S. C. Jones on Marcli 31, 1916, for my dear cousin, Fannie Hamrick, Dothan, Ala. It is sung to the old tune of "Complainer." 46 History of the Hameick Generatioists One night, while I was all alone, A dark and lonesome sigh, My time on earth I thought had come, And I was bound to die. My sins all in a moment rose. Like a tumult in the skies; I tried the law and no mercy there For rebels such as I. My mother then began to sing; But to a dying man, I thought that in a moment I Should surely with Him stand. To hear my just and certain doom, Like a criminal at the bar, Pleading for mercy though death be just, Lord save, was my desire. That night has often come to me, Although my mother's gone, I still can hear her voice ascend The great celestial throne. I thought her prayers were then too late For this poor sinful man, Not knowing then that I had come Where every poor sinner must come. I don't believe one wants to be In such a dreadful state; Oh, brethren, sisters, one and all. Oh, won't you here relate, If it had then been left to you, Let the bitter cup pass on. And you had been as you were before, That you had not been born. Ye weary, heavy-laden souls, AVho are oppressed, sore; Ye travelers through this wilderness To Canaan's peaceful shore; Come tell me is it thus with you, And is my story true? For if you are saved, it is by grace. There is nothing you can do. It was one night upon my bed This burden rolled away; It's brought my weary, hungry soul Up to the present day. Oh, what a happy thought is this, To hear the sinner tell, How Jesus in His mercy has Saved his poor soul from hell. History of the Hamrick Generations 47 I started out one summer day, I thought a home to find; I found a place they called the church, It did not ease my mind. My troubles then arose anew, I then began to search; I hoped that Jesus in His love Showed me the only church. We are often like the lonesome dove. That mourns her absent mate; From hill to hill, from grove to grove, Her woes she doth relate. But Canaan just before us lies, Sweet spring is coming on; A few more beating winds and rains, And winter will be gone. Oh, for a breeze of heavenly love. To waft ray soul away To that celestial world above, Where pleasures ne'er decay. It's far beyond the glittering sun. That blissful, heavenly dove, I hope to dwell when time is done. And praise my God above. Oh, who can tell of a lonesome dove, While mourning her love to know. Her mate is taken away and gone. And she is left alone; Just so poor sinners sometimes are, When Jesus hides His face, But when His blessed voice they hear, "My child you are saved by grace." The above was composed by S. C. Jones, July 12, 1876, on his experi- ence. 48 HiSTOKY OF THE HaMRICK GejSTERATIONS In slumbering sleep I lay One night upon my bed, A vision very strange Or a thought came to my head; I dreamed of the day of doom, And doubtless it had come. And Christ Himself was there To summons old and young. And I myself was called, "With trumpets loud and shrill. Saying, "Every soul must rise, Be their sentence good or ill." With fear I trembling stood. And little did I know, But I knew Christ's mercy's great, And I trusted and did go. I had not been there long Before old Satan came, Dressed up in his filthy robe. And my sins he brought along; He laid them before the Lord, And said I was his own. My sins being full and great. For 'twas many I had done. Then said our blessed Lord, "I soon will end the strife, I'll see if the sinner's name Is not in the book of life." The book of life was brought. And many leaves unfold, And the sinner's name was there, And the letters written in gold. Then said our blessed Lord, "Oh, stay, old Satan, stay. For the sinner's name is here. And his sins are washed away." Then murmuring Satan stood All in a dismal plight. And said unto the Lord, "Your indictments are not right." Then said our blessed Lord, "Oh, why, old Satan, why? Satan, you know right well For poor sinners I did die. I died to redeem my bride. Who once was lost by thee, And to save all faithful souls That do put their trust in me." History of the Hamrick Generations 49 THE GOSPEL CHURCH Well, wife, I've found the model church, And worshipped there today; It made me think of good old times Before my hair was gray. The meeting house was finer built Than they were years ago; But then I found when I went in It was not built for show. The sexton did not sit me down Away back by the door; He knew that I was old and deaf, And saw that I was poor. He must have been a Christian man, He led me boldly through The crowded aisle of that grand church To find a pleasant pew. You should have heard that singing, wife, It had the old-time ring; The preacher said with trumpet voice, "Let all the people sing." Old Coronation was the tune, The music upward rolled, Until I thought the angel choir Struck all their harps of gold. My deafness seemed to melt away. My spirit caught the fire, I joined my feeble, trembling voice With that melodious choir; And sang as in my youthful days, "Let angels prostrate fall; Bring forth the royal diadem, And crown him Lord of all." I tell you, wife, it did me good To sing that hymn once more; I felt like some wrecked mariner W^ho gets a glimpse of shore. I almost want to lay aside This weather-beaten form. And anchor in the blessed port Forever from the storm. 'Twas not a flowery sermon, wife. But simple gospel truth; It fitted humble men like me. It suited hopeful youth. To win the sin-sick souls to Christ The earnest preacher tried, He preached not of li^mself or creed, But Jesus crucified. Dear wife, the toil will soon be o'er, The victory soon be won. The shining land is just ahead. Our race is nearly run. We are nearing Canaan's happy shore, Our home so bright and fair; Thank God we'll never sin again, There'll be no sorrow there. 50 History of the Hameick Generations COUNTY HISTORIES Alamance — Alamance County was formed in 1849 from Orange.

It is interesting to note that one of the by-laws of tliat Assembly admonished that "all members should wear shoes, if not stockings, during the sessions of the body, and they must refrain from throwing chicken and other bones under the tree." We would that we were given time to specu- late on the deliberations of that early body ; suffice it to say, however, that the inspiration of the giant oak and the freedom of the expansive open must have suggested to the pioneer legislators the sturdiness and freedom of government given us today. The little "acorn" legislature held there in that distant day has grown into the great law-tree of today.
