Source: "A History of Catawba County" compiled and published by Catawba County Historical Association, Inc. 1954, Ed. by Charles J. Preslar, Jr. .
Chapter IV, "Contribution To The American Revolution," p. 74: "General Rutherford's march was aimed specifically at freeing Colonel Charles McDowell and nine other men, plus about 125 women and children, who were withstanding an onslaught in Cathey's Fort in Turkey Cove of what now is McDowell county." (Turkey Cove mentioned in Christian Arney's testimony for his pension). .
p. 77, same chapter: "...Because the area was pestered constantly by Indian and British threats, no calls for extended operations of the local militia were made. ...However, the King's Mountain battleground drew rather heavily on the section. Among those serving in the engagement which soundly discouraged the Britishers were Major George Wilfong, Captain John Sigmon, Captain Peter Mull, Captain William Sherrill, Lieutenant Isaac Van Horn, Palsor Sigmon, Daniel Whitener, Abram Whitener, John Dellinger, Michael Cline, Benedict Hahn, Michael Shell, Joshua Hahn, John Setzer, Francis McCorkle, John Wilfong, John Wilson, Andrew Wilson, CHRISTIAN ARNEY, Samuel Caldwell, Caspar Bolick, Martin Coulter, Benjamin Bowles, Conrad Tippong, John Turbyfill, Conrad Yoder, John Dobson, Jacob Lutz, Simon Haas, Uriah Sherrill, Philip Fry, John Haas, and William Simpson." "...A tradition has come down to the effect that soldiers of the Catawba area collected at the South Fork region home of Henry Weidner, among the most illustrious of pioneers, to march from there to the Battle of King's Mountain." .

Ms. Pritchett: Thank you for your comments. I have been at work writing a novel titled, "The Angels of Bath." I have discovered many new disturbing researched facts about this tragic event, of which, Richard A. Fritz's story is one. It has touched my very soul, and filled my heart with a purpose I have not felt since having served in Vietnam. I deeply appreciate the work that all volunteers who have recorded and historically noted in cemeteries across the nation have contributed. You are all heroic. Thank you.

Thank you for the heads up on the photo. It was supplied by another ancestry contributor and I took it at face value. I have removed it from the F-A-G page as well as my tree. Again, thank you! Best, Brent
|L Rogers||RE: Edward Pritchett|
Hello again; I was just adding names to my virtual cemetery and was looking a Caswell's memorial. For whatever reason, it says his father's name was Nell. I am a bit confused because of the wife was Sofia and that fits with what I have... lol all but Nell when I thought it was Edward.

|Rich M||Transfer Request|
Thank you so much for establishing the memorial for my grandmother, Helvie Sinnemaki. I added a photo and have more information and links I can add as well as burial information. After reading the help section, I realized I could request that the memorial be transferred to me. Would that be possible? The link is: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=16953034
Thank you so much!
Rich Miles, Grandson of Helvie Sinnemaki

|L Rogers||Hello again|
question on Edward. I have 2 other places that show Edward as born in North Carolina in 1803 instead of 1791 (through the 1850 census which shows an age of 47)? Any ideas on this? Is there a way to leave private messages instead of posting for all to see?
Added by L Rogers on Feb 03, 2014 8:03 PM
I am related through Caswell's son James Harvey and either Minta Arilla Harvey, Minita Arilla Harvey, or Misstie A. Harvey, (lol I have seen it all three spellings and no trace of any of them through Find A Grave). Any way James Harvey's daughter, Myrtle May married Everett Rogers, and they had my father Franklin Eugene Rogers, and I was the result of his marriage to Virginia Laurence. My next question would be who is Malatia? that is a new name for me.

Greetings, I am wondering if this is the same Pritchett that is the father of Caswell Pritchett. (Caswell would be my great great grandfather.) If he is, do you know where Katherine (Scroggins)Pritchett fits in? Or am I barking up the wrong family tree?

|Elizabeth Kaeton||RE: title correction|
Thank you for taking care of that detail.
My great grandfather spelled his name Caetano. When my grandfather came to this country - via Boston - he said the nice Irish man spelled it Kaeton. No one can figure out why, exactly. It got changed to Caton and then somewhere along the line (probably when my grandfather learned enough English to understand and speak), he said that my grandfather's name was Caetano Souza, so the name was legally changed to Souza.
By then, four children had been born Kaeton and had their names legally changed to Souza, but many, like my father, went by Caton Souza. Gotta love this country's immigration system (Not!). It's been broken for a long, long time.
My father's people are from the Azores: Ribera Grande and Pico. My mother's people are from Azores (same islands) as well as Lisbon and Coimbra and some from up north in Porto.
It's a small world, after all.
