Notes for Meshach Inman:

General Notes:

Phillip Clark relates that information from Dr. Barbara Inman Beall states Meshach Inman was killed about 1767 according to some history scripts and in other manuscripts the death occurred in the winter of 1771. Daniel Boone led his party, which Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego were in, into the woods the winter of 1771. When the men became weak from lack of food and weary from lack of sleep and warmth, Boone left his men to rest by a campfire and he traveled on, hoping to bring back some food. As the researcher of this Inman information found, a party of nine men remained in the camp. Boone took a scout or two with him. When he returned, he found his men dead, all victims of an Indian masscre. The only two survivors were apparently Shadrach and Abednego Inman.

 

 

Anna Maria Buttner[3] was born about 1750 in Pennsylvania, USA[3]. She died on Unknown.

Meshach Inman and Anna Maria Buttner were married about 1765 in North Carolina, USA[3]. They had the following children:

19. ii.

Samuel Ezekial Inman[3] was born between 1766-1767 in Burke, North Carolina, USA[3]. He married Rebecca Graham about 1779 in North Carolina, USA[3]. He died on 22 Jun 1804 in Nashville, Davidson, Tennessee, USA[3].

5.

Abednego Inman-2 (Ezekiel John-1)[1] was born on 01 Jul 1752[1]. He died on 02 Feb 1831 in Dandridge, Jefferson, Tennessee, USA[1].

Notes for Abednego Inman:

General Notes:

Following from Inman Compendium

 

Abednego Inman

Born: 1 July 1752, Yorkshire, England

Died: 2 Feb. 1831, Dandridge, Jefferson Co., Tn.

Married: Mary Ritchie 1777 (DAR Record #144440)

b. 16 Nov. 1757 Prince Edward Co., Va. (Vital Records of that County)

d. 23 June 1836, Dandridge, Tenn.

Daughter of John Ritchie and Jane (Davis) Ritchie.

b.

d. Botetourt Co., Va.

Son of ________ Ritchie and Jean (Caldwell) Ritchie

Both Buried: Military Cemetery, Dandridge, Tn.

 

Abednego came to America with his brothers when he was about 15 years of age and first settled in Limestone, Rockbridge Co. Va. (American Compendium of Genealogy Vol. 3, p. 668).

 

One of the earliest references to Abednego is found in the Missouri Historical Magazine, M 6, p. 138-40 which relates that in the year 1767 a party of explorers left their homes in North Carolina to explore land lying west of the Cumberland mountains (later a part of Tenn.) In the party were Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego Inman under the leadership of Daniel Boon. They endured many hardships in the middle of winter while crossing the mountain range and depended for their subsistence on the game they could kill. When they arrived near the central part of the present state of Tennessee, they camped near a cave where they were surprised and attacked by indians. Not having taken the precaution of posting sentinels, nearly all the little band were either killed or wounded. Among the slain was Meshack Inman. Among the wounded were Shadrack and Abednego Inman. The former received a wound in the side with a spear. Abednego received a wound the forehead from an indian tomahawk, leaving a scar which he carried the remainder of his life. He hid in a large hollow tree for nine days without food and only a little water. Eventually, he was able to make his way back to his home in North Carolina. Shadrack Inman and Daniel Boone were able to escape from the Indian attack and made their way back to their homes.

 

In March 1777 Abednego and Shadrack Inman were living in Rowan Co., N.C. where they took the oath of Allegiance to the State. (State Record of N.C. by Clark, V 22, p. 501-3. Both are shown as serving at the Battle of King's Mountain (King's Mountain Men-Draper and King's Mountain Men-White). Abednego was one of the soldiers from Waytayga and Holstein settlements who went to Col. Clark's assistance when Georgia was over run by the British. His service record has been accepted by the Daughter's of the American Revolution - national numbers 144440, 13957, 16654, 16656, 14409 and possibly others. He was a Major at the time of his discharge.

 

In 1786, Abednego took out land grants in Green County, Tn., later to become Jefferson Co. He had 450 acres of land on the south side of the Holston River, and possibly other parcels. (North Carolina Land Grants in Tenn. pages 34, 35, 37.)

 

in 1786 there is an Order in the Green co. Minutes Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions that "a road be laid off from the Puncheon camp on the north side of Lick Creek to the county line leading toward Abednego Inman's Mill." This appears to have been a camp and mill for the rough dressing of timber. Annals of Tennessee - Ramsey -- relates that Col. Tipton ordered a number of troops (employed in putting down disturbances between the settlers and the indians) to meet at Abednego Inman's on 16 March 1788. (p. 415.)

 

There are numerous other mentions of Abednego in Washington County, N.C. Minutes showing that Abednego purchased and sold land, that he was appointed as a Grand Juror in May 1787, that he served as a juror in the Superior Court, served as a Justice of the Peace, etc. Court Minutes 1776-1809 Books 1-19, Pps. 109, 113, 236, 242, 254, 258, 265, 268, 269, 276, 304, 305, 312, 315, 338, 350-1, 357.

 

In July 1793 Abednego was appointed foreman of the first Grand Jury held in Jefferson Co., Tn. He was appointed Magistrate at the first court held in Dandridge after Gov. Sevier established the State Government in 1796. This was considered a high office according to Ramsey's Annals of Tenn. p. 669. His name is mentioned many more times in the Chancery and Circuit Court Records and the Minutes of Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions in the Greene and Jefferson Co. records.

 

Both Shadrack and Abednego, and their families were members of the original Hopewell Presbyterian Church founded in 1785. This was the oldest church in the county, Tennessee Cousins (Ray) list Abednego in the roster of early trustees and elders of the church.

 

Abednego was listed among the Early Tax payers of Jefferson Co. in 1801. He owned 457 acres of land and was taxed 12-« cents per 100 acres. He paid the same tax on 3 town lots, and also paid tax on 4 black slaves at the rate of 25 cents each. (Mrs. Howard Woodruff sketch.)

 

Abednego died in Jefferson Co. in 1831 and is buried in the Military Cemetery in the town of Dandridge. (Will following) A monument, honoring Revolutionary Soldiers buried there, bears the name of Abednego. The military cemetery is part of the original cemetery of the Hopewell Presbyterian Church.

Subject: William Inman, Sr. & Jr.

 

Dear Jo,

 

My attention had been drawn to William of Bedford/Pittsylvania because of the interesting parentage. Benjamin Elisha was purportedly the son of Ezekiel and Henrietta Hardin, William of Ezekiel and Fanny Wakefield, making them half brothers. It seems credible that Ezekiel and Fanny had a William (William was a Wakefield family name), but William and Lazarus were on the Bledsoe County, NC, Census in 1830, where Fanny had died in 1826. This effectively rules out Ezekiel as the father of William of Pittsylvania.

 

In looking at the data, I noted that your genealogy had William Jr. as being born in 1792. Some of what I know about the family was through Bess Copeland of Missouri, who is a descendant of William Sr.'s son Edmund. She not only made two or more trips to Bedford to research the family; she employed a genealogist to search the files, including the early court order books. All in all, this is what seems to be documented concerning William Sr. From the court order books of Bedford County and other sources:

 

Nov. 24, 1777 William purchased land from Evan Morgan. Elisha had earlier purchased land from Morgan on Jan. 17, 1777. Elisha had witnessed his father-in-law's will in 1774. William had no earlier record.

 

Book 6, page 358 Bess does not give the date of this transaction. Book 9 was in 1788. William apprentices Archibald Green, an orphan.

 

1783 Road work with Morgan Morgan.

 

1788 Another Inman, Zachariah, is owed by the county for attendance-possibly jury duty. This is a lone entry.

 

Feb. 1793 William summoned in regard to the location of a road. He had likely already gone to Pittsylvania County. He sold his property in 1794 and bought land in Pittsylvania County two months later. These legal transactions likely always trail the events themselves.

 

1811 William summoned for delinquent taxes. This could have been an abandoned piece of land, or it could refer to William Jr. I seem to remember that it was for only 20 acres.

 

What can we make of this? In 1782, William was listed for personal property tax, and had one person in the household over 16. Bess took this to mean that two people were indicated, but the way the listing was done that year, it meant only that William was listed in two places. The tax people corrected the redundancy the following year.

 

William was listed for personal taxes from 1782, when the list started, until 1791, a year later than Elisha. An interesting thing occurs in 1785. William is listed as having two people over age 21 in his household. This listing continues through 1791. Could this have been his father, come to die in the bosom of his family? Could it be the Zachariah of 1788, a brother, cousin, or even his father? Could it be William Jr., older than we think? The answer is much more prosaic. It was Archibald Green, the apprentice, who stayed with William until William moved to Pittsylvania. Archibald Green appears for the first time on the personal property tax list as an individual in 1792. He did not go to Pittsylvania with William.

 

I note that William Jr. does not appear on William Sr.'s tax list, or as an individual, through 1791. The tax listing in 1791 was done on Apr. 30. William Jr. could have come of age later in the year. If I remember correctly, the Pittsylvania tax records do not exist for 1792 and for some time later.

 

Bess assigned birth years to William's nine children, two years apart, except for William. She had William being born in 1770, but Polly not until 1794. What was it about William? I would guess that it was his marriage (and this is just a guess of what I would find if I looked). He married Nancy Morris on Oct. 29, 1792. I am guessing that permission for him to be married would have been required if he were not 21 and that such permission does not appear in the record. If he had been born in 1772, he could not have been more than 20 years old when he got married. Ergo, he must have been born before 1772. The paper trail on William Jr.'s age does not extend beyond that.

My only later entry on William Jr. was when he sold his share of William Sr.'s estate to brother Henry in 1818.

 

The interesting thing about the year of William Jr.'s birth is, of course, what it reflects concerning William Sr.'s date of birth. I conclude, however, that nothing is gained there. One can manipulate William Sr.'s age at the time of William Jr.'s birth from 16 years old to 30 years old. If we are conventional and assume he married when he was 21 and became a father the following year, his year of birth would look something like 1748 if William Jr. were born in 1790. It seems to me that loners like Elisha and William (out of touch without their families to help them) are more likely to be mature people when they marry: age 26? Like Rumsfeld says, "There are things we know and things we do not know." This is one of the things that we do not know. But we do know that William of Bedford/Pittsylvania was not the son of Ezekiel, or John Ezekiel, or John Benjamin Ezekiel.

Wheeler's History of North Carolina

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Shadrach Inman (son of Shadrach and Mary (McPheeter) Inman) was Captain of a Georgia Militia in the Revolutionary War and was killed at the Battle of Musgrove's Hill, August 19, 1780. The following is copied from page. 57

 

"At Musgrove's Hill on the south side of Enoree River, Col. McDowell learned that a party of 500 Tories had assembled. He detached Shelby, Williams and Clarke to attack them. Col. Ferguson with his while force lay between them. They left the camp on the evening of August 18th, at Smith's Ford on Broad River and taking a circuitous route through the woods avoided Ferguson's forces. They rode hard all night and at daybreak met the evening's party in string forces. A skirmish ensued, the Tories retreated. They then advanced on the main body of the Tories. At this juncture, a country man living near, a friend of liberty, came to Shelby and informed him that the enemy had been reinforced the evening before, by six hundred regular troops and (Regular) the Queen's American Regiment from New York commanded by Col. Innes (some historians spell the name Ennes) marching to join Ferguson. Here is a position that would have tried the talent and nerve of the most skillful and bravest officer.

"Advance was hopeless and retreat impossible, but Shelby was equal to the emergency. He instantly commenced forming a breastwork of brush and logs. While he detailed Capt. Inman with twenty-five tried men to reconnoiter and skirmish with the enemy as soon as they crossed the Enoree River.

The drums and bugles of the enemy soon were heard approaching upon this devoted band. Capt. Inman had been ordered to fire and retreat. This struggle was successful, for the enemy in rapid pursuit advanced on great confusion believing that the whole American force was routed. When they approached the rude rampart of Shelby, they received from his riflemen a most destructive fire, which carried great slaughter among them. This was Gallantry kept, all the British officers were either killed or wounded, the Tory leaded Hausey shot down. They began, then, a disorderly retreat. The Americans now in turn pursued, and in this pursuit the brave Capt. Inman was killed, fighting hand to hand with the enemy. The British loss was only 4 killed and 9 wounded. A more brilliant battle fought with and inferior against a superior force and more complete triumph did not occur in the whole Revolutionary Struggle."

Notes for John Ritchie Inman:

General Notes:

Take highway 431 out of Huntsville, AL. You cross over the Monte Sano Mountain and drop down into a valley about 12 miles long and from 3 to 5 miles in width with Owens Cross Roads almost in the center. From there you can see mountains in all directions. It was here that John Ritchie Inman and his wife Jane Walker Inman came in 1814 following their marriage in Jefferson Co. Tenn. They traveled the Tennessee River and staked out their claim in "Possum Hollow" where wood was plentiful, a good stream and bottom land to clear for crops. Here they had 16 children in 20 years, the two oldest (twins) perishing in a fire that destroyed their home on Christmas Eve in 1811.

In 1825 a group of families from Brunswick Co. Va. moved into the valley, among them George B. Woodruff and his two half-grown sons, Joseph Phipps Woodruff and Benjamin Allen Woodruff. Within a few years the Woodruff boys married two of the daus. of John R. Inman. In 1842, after Salley, wife of George B. Woodruff, died, he married a third daughter, a young widow with four children, and raised a second family.

In 1832, with the birth of her last child, Jane Walker Inman died and was buried at the foot of Green Mt. near their homestead. John R. died in 1837 and was buried beside his wife. Native stones marked their graves as was the case of about 20 other graves, and a fence was placed around the small plot.

In 1843 the Woodruff families and the younger Inman children pulled up stakes and moved to Franklin Co. Missouri and I believe at this time marble head stones wore erected to the Inman parents. The homesteads fell into ruin and the land was incorporated into a large plantation with farm hands tending the corn and cotton crops. The cemetery was soon forgotten.

I checked with several middle aged residents of Owens Cross Roads and while they knew of Possom Hollow they were not aware of a cemetery. Robert Craft, a retired postmaster, recalled visiting a the cemetery in his youth, perhaps 60 years ago. He knew the general direction but uncertain as to the exact location. A farm hand on the plantation owned by Wilson Mann recalled the old grave yard and volunteered to direct us.

We crossed a bridge over Flint River, west of Owens Cross Roads turned sharply and dropped down on a black top road used by the owners of a Rock Quarry located in the hollow. A gate was padlocked across the road, but we had secured the necessary key. After a mile or so we took a dirt road that veered off to the right and followed along the foot of the mountain. Is is seldom traveled except when necessary to tend the crops and was overgrown with wild

grasses. We crossed over a creek and entered "Possum Hollow." We continued driving around the edge of the mountain and came to a second creek, practically dry but a steep incline caused us to decide to park our car and continue on foot. We crossed the muddy creek bed, followed along the edge of a large corn field, perhaps the distance of a quarter of a mile, wading through knee high grasses and weeds. We came armed with hoes and clubs because we were warned of rattle snakes, so kept a sharp look out.

As we neared the foot of the mountain our guide pointed out the tops of several tall pines showing above the forest that marked the spot. We followed our guide up the mountain about the distance of a long city block in the direction of the pines. The trees were crowded together, growing skyward instead of branching outward, Actually there was little underbrush due to the lack of sunshine and only an occasional patch filtered through the canopy above. A thick cushion of old leaves covered the ground.

 

Here we found the pioneer graveyard with about 20 field stone markers. As I said, at one time it had been enclosed with a wire fence but there remained no evidence of one. The only two commercial stones were:

 

John R. Inman

born

July 5, 1788

died

March 4, 1837 Jane W. Inman

born

March 17, 1791

died

July 1831

 

It has been proven that Jane died in 1832 at the birth of her last child, Mary, and the stone erected at a later date. The stones were of marble, about 2 by 3 feet in size and mounted on a small base. They were well preserved due to the protection of the forest, but discolored with age and moss.. Jane's stone was broken in two midway, but we replaced it for pictures, then propped the top half against the base to keep it from falling. John's stone was lying flat on the ground, the slope of the ground made it next to impossible for it to stay erect. We took pictures then returned it to former position. Thrown against a nearby tree was the broken foot-marker bearing the initials "J.R.I." and this Howard picked up and brought back with him. We figured that since these were his great, great grandparents, he wanted to preserve it, and that many years may pass before anyone finds their way to the cemetery, let alone have an interest in it. I picked up several pine cones from the area.

The guide told us that if we followed the 2nd. creek we would come to the remains of the old homestead about a quarter of a mile or less up the side of the mountain. It was in the last stages of decay when he was a child and doubted if we could find much. This was without a doubt the homestead of the Inman's but because of the snakes I hesitated to go that far into the woods. I do know that pioneer families buried their dead within a half mile of the house.

On the return trip we stopped at another place about a mile from the cemetery where our guide recalled another pioneer graveyard, all field stone markers. We fanned out in all four directions but were unable to locate it. As I study the map it appears to be located in section 26 which would be the land owned by Joseph Phipps Woodruff in 1835. We clocked our mileage and we had traveled 3.7 miles into the woods after leaving the black top road. This would be in a S. W. direction from Owens Cross Roads.

General Notes:

Shadrach was commissioned as Lieutenant May 7, 1774 and as Captain on January 5th, 1777killed in State of Georgia during the war between Great Britain and the Americas. His heirs were given 575 acres of land in Washington County, Georgia for his service in the war.

 

Shadrach Inman took the oath of allegiance to North Carolina March 4, 1777. He resided in North Carolina during the revolution. He was a man of much energy, ambition and patriotism.

s/ Shadrach Inman

This 20th day of September, 1830.

 

What is now known as the Sheppard Inn in Dandridge, Tennessee was the home of Shadrach Inman. It was built in 1830 and used by him and his family as their dwelling for many years.

The mantles and furniture for the Inman home was hauled in wagons from Philadelphia, Pa. The mantle which was originally bought for the parlor is now in the dining room and is an interesting relic of hand carved work of the pioneer days. In the Inman home, which was noted for its hospitality, many famous men including President Johnson, President Polk, Gov. James Jones and other were Entertained. Dandridge was on the stage road from Knoxville to Eastern cities and many distinguished people would stop on their way to Washington and fashionable watering places in the East.

Sheppards Inn as the Old Inman Home was the scene of many social occasions among which was the marriage of Robert H. Hynds to Miss Ann Swann, the first graduate of Mount Holyoke College who came south to teach. At this time Miss Swann was boarding in town, Mr. Inman invited her and the judge to be married at his home and they accepted. At he reception which followed the wedding the young people wanted to dance and the host gave his consent. Folowing this Mr. Inman and the merry makers were called before the session of the Presbyterian church and dismissed for "dancing".

A granddaughter of Mr. Inman recalls having heard her mother tell of the meteoric shower which occurred in the thirties. The young daughter of the Inmans slept in a trundle bed beneath the inside stairway. When the stars began to fall the old black nurse ran into the house crying: "The stars are falling!" The little girl sprang out of bed thinking she said "The Stairs are falling!" This is her only recollection of the meteoric shower.

At the death of Shadrach Inman in 1862 his son, William Shadrach Inman, became the ower of the property. He sold it to James Mitchell, who converted it into a tavern known for the next forty years as the Mitchell House. Mr. Mitchell had been a slave holder and at the close of the civil war and opened a boarding house to repair his fortunes. Mr. Mitchell was noted for his devotion to his family and his interest in the social life of his children and their friends. During his life the Mitchell house was the scene of many entertainments popular over a century ago. After the death of Mr. Mitchell the hotel became the property of his son-in-law W.F. Park and his wife, Cordelia Mitchell Park, who for several years continued the management under the same name. In 1908 Mr. and Mrs. Park gave over the management to their foster daughter, Mrs. J. Walter Sheppard, who, with her husband, continued under the same name for several years until Mr. Sheppard bought the property and changed the name to Sheppard's Inn.

When asked to to state the greatest factor in making Sheppard's Inn into a well known hotel, their reply was always "pike roads and automobiles." Dandridge being on the main roadfrom Knoxville to Tate Springs and other popular watering places, many summer tourists stopped here for meals, It was not uncommon for 150 automobile tourists to be stopped here to dine on Sundays. As many as ten states were sometimes represented at a single dinner. Travelers from every state in the union as well as Canada, London, France, Spain, Germany and the Phillippines have been entertained here by Mr. and Mrs Sheppard. Among the foreign nobility, a chinese princess and a Spanish Count.

s/ Shadrach Inman

This 20th day of September, 1830.

 

What is now known as the Sheppard Inn in Dandridge, Tennessee was the home of Shadrach Inman. It was built in 1830 and used by him and his family as their dwelling for many years.

The mantles and furniture for the Inman home was hauled in wagons from Philadelphia, Pa. The mantle which was originally bought for the parlor is now in the dining room and is an interesting relic of hand carved work of the pioneer days. In the Inman home, which was noted for its hospitality, many famous men including President Johnson, President Polk, Gov. James Jones and other were Entertained. Dandridge was on the stage road from Knoxville to Eastern cities and many distinguished people would stop on their way to Washington and fashionable watering places in the East.

Sheppards Inn as the Old Inman Home was the scene of many social occasions among which was the marriage of Robert H. Hynds to Miss Ann Swann, the first graduate of Mount Holyoke College who came south to teach. At this time Miss Swann was boarding in town, Mr. Inman invited her and the judge to be married at his home and they accepted. At he reception which followed the wedding the young people wanted to dance and the host gave his consent. Folowing this Mr. Inman and the merry makers were called before the session of the Presbyterian church and dismissed for "dancing".

A granddaughter of Mr. Inman recalls having heard her mother tell of the meteoric shower which occurred in the thirties. The young daughter of the Inmans slept in a trundle bed beneath the inside stairway. When the stars began to fall the old black nurse ran into the house crying: "The stars are falling!" The little girl sprang out of bed thinking she said "The Stairs are falling!" This is her only recollection of the meteoric shower.

At the death of Shadrach Inman in 1862 his son, William Shadrach Inman, became the ower of the property. He sold it to James Mitchell, who converted it into a tavern known for the next forty years as the Mitchell House. Mr. Mitchell had been a slave holder and at the close of the civil war and opened a boarding house to repair his fortunes. Mr. Mitchell was noted for his devotion to his family and his interest in the social life of his children and their friends. During his life the Mitchell house was the scene of many entertainments popular over a century ago. After the death of Mr. Mitchell the hotel became the property of his son-in-law W.F. Park and his wife, Cordelia Mitchell Park, who for several years continued the management under the same name. In 1908 Mr. and Mrs. Park gave over the management to their foster daughter, Mrs. J. Walter Sheppard, who, with her husband, continued under the same name for several years until Mr. Sheppard bought the property and changed the name to Sheppard's Inn.

When asked to to state the greatest factor in making Sheppard's Inn into a well known hotel, their reply was always "pike roads and automobiles." Dandridge being on the main roadfrom Knoxville to Tate Springs and other popular watering places, many summer tourists stopped here for meals, It was not uncommon for 150 automobile tourists to be stopped here to dine on Sundays. As many as ten states were sometimes represented at a single dinner. Travelers from every state in the union as well as Canada, London, France, Spain, Germany and the Phillippines have been entertained here by Mr. and Mrs Sheppard. Among the foreign nobility, a chinese princess and a Spanish Count.

s/ Shadrach Inman

This 20th day of September, 1830.

 

What is now known as the Sheppard Inn in Dandridge, Tennessee was the home of Shadrach Inman. It was built in 1830 and used by him and his family as their dwelling for many years.

The mantles and furniture for the Inman home was hauled in wagons from Philadelphia, Pa. The mantle which was originally bought for the parlor is now in the dining room and is an interesting relic of hand carved work of the pioneer days. In the Inman home, which was noted for its hospitality, many famous men including President Johnson, President Polk, Gov. James Jones and other were Entertained. Dandridge was on the stage road from Knoxville to Eastern cities and many distinguished people would stop on their way to Washington and fashionable watering places in the East.

Sheppards Inn as the Old Inman Home was the scene of many social occasions among which was the marriage of Robert H. Hynds to Miss Ann Swann, the first graduate of Mount Holyoke College who came south to teach. At this time Miss Swann was boarding in town, Mr. Inman invited her and the judge to be married at his home and they accepted. At he reception which followed the wedding the young people wanted to dance and the host gave his consent. Folowing this Mr. Inman and the merry makers were called before the session of the Presbyterian church and dismissed for "dancing".

A granddaughter of Mr. Inman recalls having heard her mother tell of the meteoric shower which occurred in the thirties. The young daughter of the Inmans slept in a trundle bed beneath the inside stairway. When the stars began to fall the old black nurse ran into the house crying: "The stars are falling!" The little girl sprang out of bed thinking she said "The Stairs are falling!" This is her only recollection of the meteoric shower.

At the death of Shadrach Inman in 1862 his son, William Shadrach Inman, became the ower of the property. He sold it to James Mitchell, who converted it into a tavern known for the next forty years as the Mitchell House. Mr. Mitchell had been a slave holder and at the close of the civil war and opened a boarding house to repair his fortunes. Mr. Mitchell was noted for his devotion to his family and his interest in the social life of his children and their friends. During his life the Mitchell house was the scene of many entertainments popular over a century ago. After the death of Mr. Mitchell the hotel became the property of his son-in-law W.F. Park and his wife, Cordelia Mitchell Park, who for several years continued the management under the same name. In 1908 Mr. and Mrs. Park gave over the management to their foster daughter, Mrs. J. Walter Sheppard, who, with her husband, continued under the same name for several years until Mr. Sheppard bought the property and changed the name to Sheppard's Inn.

When asked to to state the greatest factor in making Sheppard's Inn into a well known hotel, their reply was always "pike roads and automobiles." Dandridge being on the main roadfrom Knoxville to Tate Springs and other popular watering places, many summer tourists stopped here for meals, It was not uncommon for 150 automobile tourists to be stopped here to dine on Sundays. As many as ten states were sometimes represented at a single dinner. Travelers from every state in the union as well as Canada, London, France, Spain, Germany and the Phillippines have been entertained here by Mr. and Mrs Sheppard. Among the foreign nobility, a chinese princess and a Spanish Count.

In "The History Of Pittsylvania Co., VA" reference is made to a Daniel Boaz, Captain of a militia company and also charged with the responsibility of processioning the land in his precinct in 1803. In 1816, a court order regarding the estate of Daniel Baoz appoints Lydia (wife) as a guardian of the heirs, clearly indicating that Daniel died about 1815.

After the death of his father, William, Edmond Inman and family moved to that part of Washington, Co., KY which later became Marion County. This is about the time that Abraham Lincoln, the grandfather of the president, also moved to Washington Co., KY. The 1810 Census shows Edmund Inman, father of James, E. G. and J. C Inman living in Washington Co., KY with two sons and a daughter under six years of age. On Oct 18, 1822, a deed for about 80 acres was recorded for Edmund in Deed Book H., page 85. Edmund and wife sold this land and another tract was recorded in Deed Book L, page 472-474, dated Oct 17, 1833.

 

According to a story written by his granddaughter Pernecia Farley: "Grandpa Edmond was carried in his chair as his family moved west to Texas." "He died athe foot of the Ozarks."

General Notes:

Those Funny Names

 

Barzillai, Hezekiah, Elisha, Ezekiel, Abednego, Meshach. Where did our ancestors get those names, and who were the people who used them? The answers are important to our being able to identify our ancestors. The answers are not as simple as they might seem, however.

 

The names are obviously Biblical names, but not just any Biblical names. They are Old Testament Biblical names. What is the significance of that? We are familiar with John, James, Matthew, Thomas—but those are New Testament names. Does the distinction mean anything?

 

Names of children are frequently taken from famous people, particularly heads of state. Before 1714, only two English kings had names found in the Bible: John and James, both New Testament names. Most of the other names, including those of the commoners, originated in what is now northern Europe and Scandinavia. These included not only names like Ethelbert, but also William (Willahelm: strong helmet or leader), Henry (Heimerich: ruler of the house), Robert, and Richard — names that were used long before the time of the kings, but names that were undoubtedly given impetus by their kingly use.

 

In the 1600’s, about one-fourth of all English men were named John, judging from an analysis made of 11,900 given names in Surrey wills. Another fifteen percent were named Thomas. This writer collected information on 173 Inman wills and other documents from well over 100 English index books of records. The time span was roughly from 1300 to 1750, with most of the records in the 1500’s and 1600’s. The search covered the whole of England. My analysis indicated that the distribution of those Inman given names corresponded very closely with that of the Surrey wills. No Old Testament names were represented in my collection. Where were these people?

 

In an attempt to get a lead in the research, I broadened the search to more common surnames and consulted the International Genealogical Index, focusing on the period before 1700. I examined the surnames Smith and Jones, adding the Old Testament Biblical names to those surnames—Ezekiel Smith, for example. Without exception, the names were found in the south of England … and Wales. To rule out the possibility that the Smith and Jones families were found only in Southern England, I added the names John and Robert. As expected, men named John Smith and Robert Jones were found all over the map, from Wiltshire to Lancashire. Only those with Old Testament given names were limited to Southern England.

 

A closer look at the specific English shires revealed that the Old Testament names were located in two patterns—one for shires near the Bristol Channel and its Severn River extension, both on the English and Welsh sides, the other at London and shires near it. Numerous Inmans were located in those areas at that time, although my search found no Inmans with Old Testament names. The Inmans were there as a matter of record by 1300 AD, with a continuous record thereafter. Few earlier records exist, because a common written language was only evolving. (Beowulf, written in the West Saxon dialect, was composed about 1000 AD; but English evolved from Englisc, an Angle dialect. Chaucer was born about 1343, and we know what Chaucerian English is like.)

 

This is merely dipping one toe in the ocean tide, but it should give pause to those who have ancestors with Old Testament names. The best ports for immigration to the New World were London and Bristol—right near the homes of all those people who had the funny names that we have come to love. Perhaps that is the best place to look for them.
