European Emigrants & American Colonies

Vol 18, Iss 28 Have you ever wondered why is it certain countries established the American colonies, and why certain other countries furnished many settlers, yet established no colonies?

We know that England was very far in the lead as to establishing American, English colonies. And England was the country nearer the American shore than was the case with continental Europe. England was also the foremost in breaking the power of feudalism and giving the masses of her people a will to assert themselves.

The public domain was parceled out to private individuals in a way very much like the homestead law by which a great part of the West had been settled during the last half-century.

Historical Sketches Pocahontas County, West Virginia

Vol 16, Iss 27 Pocahontas County, WV - The leaders that gave our pioneers the most trouble were Pontiac, Chief of the Ottawas; Cornstalk, Killbuck, and Crane. Killbuck annoyed the settlements for a long series of years, and when hostilities ceased went to his home in Ohio, and thereafter paid occasional visits to Wheeling. He became blind, and lived to be more than a hundred years old, Killbuck had for a comrade, whose efficiency as a warrior made him nearly as dangerous, named Crane, because of his unusually long neck and legs. Crane was an ugly thorn in the flesh, especially to those of the settlers that located on the South Branch, and made himself a conspicuous nuisance never to be forgotten. But little record is to be found of his exploits, but enough is known to give him the distinction of being considered nearly as dangerous as Killbuck.

The need of gunpowder in the war of 1812 stimulated the making of saltpeter from the nitrous earth found in the caverns of Cave Mountain, Trout Rock and Harman hills. This industry continued until after the breaking out of the war of 1861.Besides the Dyer surname showing up in our paternal ancestry, we have found the surname of Arbogast, Lightner and Kinkead/Kinkaid.

Highland, Virginia - Agricultural Interests & Customs

Vol 14, Iss 25 Highland County, VA - There is a ribbon of bottom land that follows each larger watercourse in Highland. They vary in breadth and sometimes, as on the Cow pasture, were interrupted for short distances. Along the larger streams, farmhouses succeeded one another at frequent intervals. Farms were also found on the lower courses of the tributary streams. Tillage land was also seen on the low tables in the Bullpasture Valley and on the broken hillsides of the Straight Creek basin. Elsewhere, the higher ground was very little reduced to tillage or pasturage, except where limestone belts occurred, as in the Bluegrass and Big valleys.

Highland County Virginia - Negroes In Highland

Vol 14, Iss 21 Highland, Virginia - This week we mention a bit about slavery in Highland, values of slaves, slavery regulations, slaveholders in 1800, Manumission, and free negroes.

The negro appeared in Highland within ten years from the settlement, if one or more members of the race did not come with the first pioneers on the Bullpasture. The first known individual was a girl or young woman who was purchased for Ann Jane Usher by her guardian before the Indian War. It was very possible that she was the one whom Mrs. Loftus Pullin (nee Usher) set free by her Will in 1805.
