Descendants of Joseph Welch

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1.  JOSEPH1 WELCH  (THOMASA, JAMESB, WILLIAMC) was born 1779 in Rutherford County, North Carolina1, and died 1866 in Macon County, North Carolina.  He married CATHERINE DECK August 17, 1800 in Rutherford County, North Carolina, daughter of JACOB DECK and ELIZABETH BENDER/PAINTER.  She was born 1780 in Virginia1, and died 1867 in Macon County, North Carolina.

 

Notes for JOSEPH WELCH:

Joseph is listed in Rutherford County, North Carolina, census records in 1800 and 1810.

 

Much of the information below comes from the research of Peggy Hooper.

 

1800 Aug 14 Sold 200 acres on Robinsons Creek patented to Thomas Welch, adjoining Reuben Melton. This land was sold by Joseph and his mother, Agnes, to John CANCELLOR.

1801 Jan 27 Land Grant, 35 acres on Hunting Creek adjoining WELCH & McGAUGHEY.

1801 Feb 11 Property, 200 acres on Hunting Creek.

1801 Dec 10 Property, 12 acres on Hunting Creek from brother David A. Welch adjoining John MELTON.

1821 Nov 17 Sold land on Indian Creek and South Fork Catawba River. (On the road from Lincolnton to

Yorkville)

 

Farmer and Merchant. Joseph was co-partner with Robert Hall and James Truitt, as merchants, under the name of Joseph Welch and Company in Franklin. This business was sold to John Hall December 25, 1835.

 

From Macon County Court records: April 17, 1866: It appearing to the satisfaction of the Court that Joseph Welch, late of Macon County, died without leaving Last Will and Testament, A.B. Welch was appointed Administrator of the estate. He filed bond in the amount of $1000 with B.W. Bell and James Shepherd as security.

 

Joseph Welch's Road

There was no road down the little Tennessee into Tennessee, so in the 1830's my g-g-g-grandfather, Joseph, sold several of his slaves and went into debt to build the first road down the river from his place to Bushnell. Neither the state nor the county could afford to build any roads unless completely necessary so they encouraged everyone who wanted to risk their own money, to build toll roads or turnpikes, as they were called in those days. Grandpa Joseph had hopes of making a wagonload of money but the venture proved unprofitable and he was forced to file bankruptcy. The road, which was built by Grandpa Joseph's remaining slaves and who ever else he could get to help, was 25 or more miles long. They used picks, shovels and drag pans to build the road that became a way for the settlers to reach Chambers, Hazel and Eagle Creeks.  (Edited Source: “Remembered Lives” by Duane Oliver)

 

From Heritage of Macon County, Vol I, Macon County Historical Society (under Thomas P. Welch):

 

Joseph Welch, pioneer settler of Macon County. Joseph purchased land from the State of North Carolina when the lands acquired from treaty with the Cherokees were put up for sale in Waynesville in September 1821. This property was in the Cowee Community where Joseph first settled. In September 1831 Joseph sold to Joshua Hall 224 acres on the Tennessee River including the old Indian town house.

In November 1833 he sold other lands to Humphrey Posey. Later Joseph moved his residence to the mouth of the Tuckasiege River. An election precinct was established at his residence in September 1847, and in census records it is called Welches District. The General Assembly of North Carolina appointed 33 leading citizens to serve as the first Board of Magistrates for the newly formed Macon County, and Joseph Welch was among those taking the oath of office on March 29, 1829. He was a prominent citizen of the early days of the county. He served faithfully throughout the years in all activities of the county, as a Magistrate, juror, tax lister, election official and road overseer. Joseph had a charter for a turnpike from the mouth of the Tuckasiege to the Tennessee line. The Magistrates presided at the sessions of the Plea and Quarter Courts, which were regular jury courts. The affairs of the county were decided at these sessions. The tax rate was set each March, and Juries were appointed to view and lay off the county roads. The appointed overseers and neighborhood men were required to build the roads and keep them passable. Guardians and Administrators were appointed by the Magistrates.  Joseph was given as security for the performance of the contract for the building of the first Macon County jail in 1829. He was one of the Commission appointed for the reviewing and laying out the streets of Franklin April 9, 1835. Joseph was co-partner with Robert Hall and James Truitt, as merchants, under the name of Joseph Welch and Company in Franklin. This business was sold to John Hall December 25, 1835. The Cowee Baptist Church was organized March 15, 1828, and among the charter members was Joseph Welch. All of the charter members came from the Franklin Baptist Church.

Joseph and Catherine moved back to the Cowee Community near their daughter, Narcissa Welch Shepherd, when they had grown old. Joseph grew old in service to the new county and his sons, Thomas, Joseph Jackson and Albert Burton Welch followed his example as good and useful citizens of Macon County.

 

1821 Jan 4 Joseph Welch pays Elizabeth, relict of John Alexander, deceased, 500 pounds to relinquish all dower claims vs estate of her husband.

 

1821 May 8 Elizabeth McGaughey (Mrs. John) of Rutherford County, heir-in-law of John Alexander, deceased, appoints her brother Joseph Welch of Lincoln County as attorney to sell her share of 200 acres on the West side of the South Fork (Catawba River) Rutherford County.

 

1821 Aug 11 John Welch and James Welch of Monroe County, Kentucky heirs-at-law (as above) have right to share in 255 acres on South Fork, Catawba River in Lincoln County and appoint their brother Joseph Welch to sell the land and divide among the heirs, etc.

 

1829 Along with the law creating Macon County, from Haywood County, the North Carolina General Assembly appointed 33 leading citizens to the area to serve as magistrates. Joseph Welch was one of the men appointed. The counties were governed by a Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. These courts consisted of two dozen or more men, or justices, who received their commission from the Governor. Our Joseph was one of the justices. They held office for life and received no pay. The court met four times a year, hence the name Quarter Sessions.

 

Joseph was a very busy man. He was given as security for the builders of the new jail. Joseph was one of the members of the jury to lay off the road from Franklin down the river to the mouth of the Tuckasegee to connect with a turnpike which Joseph had a charter for to the Tennessee line. He was also in the group of men to lay out the streets of Franklin. (Joseph's father, Thomas Welch, Sr. was on similar committees when the town of Rutherfordton was laid out in the 1700's.) Joseph was in faithful attendance at all sessions of the Pleas and Quarter Sessions Courts in Franklin until he was an old man, following the footsteps of his father who had done the same in Rutherford County.

 

Cowee Baptist Church Book Volume 1: "The Constitution of the Baptist Church at Cowee in the Cherokee Purchase, Macon County, North Carolina, March 15, 1828. The presbytery consisting of Elders Humphrey Posey and Stephen White, met at Cowee by request, and after worship and a discussion on the subject of the meeting, fifteen members were found in readiness for a church. all of them members of the church at Franklin." These fifteen charter members were: Samuel Rose, Levi Truit, George Caler, Peter Mason, Joseph Welch, Jacob Caler, Lucrecy Rose., Susanah Truit, Hannah Dickey, Jaly Hibberts, Polly Edwards, Sarah Mason, Mary Mason, Roda Russell, and Sarah Fortune. On the same day, Samuel Rose and Levi Truit were examined and set apart by ordination to the office of deacon. George F. Caler was elected first clerk and treasurer. Humphrey Posey was elected as pastor on June 14, 1828.

At its organizational meeting the church set the third Sunday and preceding Saturday of each month as its regular meeting time and agreed that meetings would be held at Caler Schoolhouse, located at the forks of the road at the mouth of Caler Creek and Cowee Creek.

On June 26, 1830, George F. Caler, Elijah Shepherd and Samuel D. Bryson were appointed trustees and

were instructed to locate and purchase a spot of ground on which to build a church. The land was deeded

to the church by Samuel Decater Bryson and was located on a knoll in front of the present church

building. The first building was a log structure which was used until 1868.

Notes for CATHERINE DECK:

One researcher has listed Catherine's father as Mathias Van Dyke of the Netherlands, but Mathias daughter, Catherine, married George Simmerly (Lincoln County marriage bond: May 6, 1794). Lorena S. Eaker's research has one Jacob Deck (Tack) marrying Christina Binder/Painter abt 1780 (Revolutionary War pension #S7677) and moving to Rutherford County after April 28, 1790 when twins sons were baptized (names not given). Jacob as the father of Catherine seems more probable, though I have not seen documentary evidence to prove this. I am going on the weight of the evidence.

 

Mathias Deck owned land in the Killians Creek area (present day Lincoln County), deeding a tract to his son Adam in 1763. For further information, see Eaker, Lorena S., German Speaking People West of the Catawba River in North Carolina, 1750-1800, pp. 135-137 (Mathias Deck family), and esp. pp. 324-325 (Johan Leonhardt Bender/Painter family).

BIOGRAPHY: Thomas was the first Welch to settle in the Burnington section where he became a large landowner owner through purchase from individuals, land grants and entry and claim. By 1860 he had amassed 3400 acres valued at $9640 and personal property valued at $1918.

 

Thomas and Hester first lived in the Cowee section for the Macon County records show that on March 28, 1829 Thomas Welch, Thomas Shepherd, Jr., Joshua Dickey and B. S. Brittain were members of the County Patrol for the Cowee Community. The new county was divided into militia companies with a leader and patrols.

 

From May 23, 1835 Cowee Church Records:

Chose Brethren Isaac Truett, Henry Burnett, Joseph Kilpatrick and Thomas Welch to meet and labor with members, Thos. Daves and James Gilbreath.

 

They lived near the Burningtown Creek where Thomas operated a gristmill. The location is often referred to in the old Macon County records: June 10, 1845 - Ordered by the court that Richard Clampett be appointed overseer of the Burningtown road from the ford in the creek below Thomas Welch's mill. May 1854 . . . to work out a road beginning at the lower end of Zachariah Downs' field through the Saldeer Gap and to intersect the Burningtown road near Welch's mill.

 

Thomas was also a blacksmith. A blacksmith was a skilled artisan with many talents. Besides putting shoes on horses, he built and repaired wagons and he made most of the tools and many of the utensils for the house and farm. In his will in 1861, he gave to his daughter, Louisa Huggins "all of my farming and smith tools and all the iron I have on hand and loaned out and wagons unfinished except one which I owe J. W. Welch."

 

Thomas was very active in county and community affairs. He and his wife were charter members of the Burnington Baptist which was organized June 15 1839. He was the first Clerk and Treasurer and served in those offices for many years. He was a Deacon and served on many committees and as a delegate to the Baptist Convention and Association.

 

January 19, 1841: Thomas was appointed as a Justice of the Peace and served until his death. He was elected to the Board of School Superintendents many times. He served as tax lister and an election official in the Burnington precinct. Thomas served as a road overseer when the first roads of Macon County were being laid out and built by men of the community. He was often given as security for bonds by administrators of estates, guardians of minors and office holders throughout the years. He was often a member of the Select Courts and on committees to settle with administrators of estates.

 

Hester Parton Welch and son, William, had died by the time of the 1860 Census. The

Mortality Schedule of 1860 lists their deaths. Hester's death was caused by tuberculosis and William's death from bronchitis. The account book of Henry Hardin Ray, a carpenter and storekeeper of the Burningtown community, shows that Thomas paid for 3 coffins, "one for William, one for wife and one for self." There is no date for this entry.

 

The 1860 Census shows that Thomas Allen, age 13, son of D. H. and Amanda Welch Allen, is living in the household with his grandfather, Thomas Welch. He is remembered in Thomas's will written in 1861. "Fourth, I will and bequeath to my grandson, Thomas Allen, one horse, bridle and saddle, worth One Hundred Dollars, one cow, one bed and furniture and one rifle gun to be paid to him by Executor when he attains the age of twenty one years."

 

Thomas must have died after a brief illness for his name appears in the December 1860 County Court records as having been drawn for jury duty at the March 1861 term of Superior Court. The Burningtown Baptist Church had also appointed him to a committee shortly before his death. His will which was made on March 21, 1861, two days before his death, was contested by two of his daughters, Emily Amanda Welch Allen and Isabel Marianne Welch Drinnon, when it was filed for probate June 10,

1861. The will was transmitted to the Superior Court to be submitted to a jury. On September 9, 1861, the jury: T. J. Kimsey, R. A. Phillips, A. B. Angel, Andrew Justice, M. A. Russell, A. Conley, Hugh Elmore, John Elmore, John Ramsey, Peter Davis, William Patton and F. Barnett, found the will to be the Last Will and Testament of Thomas Welch. Joseph Wilburn Welch and Louisa Welch Huggins were the chief beneficiaries of their father's estate. Emily Amanda Allen and Marianne Drinnon were to receive

the proceeds from the sales of mountain lands owned by Thomas. His will is a part of his history.

 

Thomas and Hester were Charter Members of the Burningtown Baptist Church which was organized June 15, 1839.

 

MACON COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA June 15, 1839

Notes for THOMAS WILBURN ALLEN:

Obituary from The Franklin (North Carolina) Press, February 26, 1895:

 

Death of Thomas W. Allen

 

This was written by "A Friend" -

 

It is never with a view to change or affect the condition of the dead, that we speak of either their virtues or vices. But the paramount object is to benefit the living, and we feel that there are some circumstances connected with the life and death of the subject of this short sketch that might be interesting, if Not beneficial to the surviving friends of Thomas W. Allen who died after a very few days illness, on the 19th day of November, 1894. Being born Feb. 6, 1847, he was at time of his death 47 years, 9 months and 13 days old.

 

He was born in Macon County, NC where he remained till he reached manhood. He was married November 26, 1863 to Miss Elizabeth P. Deal with whom he spent the remaining part of his pleasant and agreeable life.

 

Shortly after his marriage, he settled in Swain County, were, as an honest, sober, industrious ,and hard working citizen, he won the esteem of his neighbors and established a very enviable reputation. By his courteous manner, and fair dealing with his fellow man, he endeared himself to his neighbors by ties of the strongest and most endearing type.

 

He was not a member of any church, but always manifested a deep and profound respect for religion, being always ready to take an active part in all the church enterprises around him. It was stated at his funeral that he had sawed the lumber, free gratis for the Maple Springs baptist church, a large new church lately built at that place.

 

His funeral services were conducted in the church mentioned by Rev. J. S. Woodard on the 20th day of November, and his remains were interred in the burial ground at that place in the presence of a very large and weeping congregation. We have never witnessed a stronger demonstration of respect anywhere. He leaves a wife and four children, besides many relatives and friends to mourn his death.

Mr. Gaston Dean taught school in Oak Grove.  He was my dad's teacher.  I remember him well as I do his brother Mr. Silas.  Fine old gentlemen.  Mr. Gaston has a least one granddaughter that goes to church at Oak Grove.  Known her all my life.  He had a beautiful home in Oak Grove near the Lost Bridge and Mr. Silas lived just a little farther down the road.  I'm fairly sure they are buried at Oak Grove.  I'm sure at the reunion someone will be able to tell you things about these two.
