205 (1) "Airheart Connections," a WorldConnect Family Tree on rootsweb.com:

Henry AIRHEART was born 1775 in PA, and died 1860. He was the son of Peter EARHART and Sophia _____. He married Jane CARR ABT 1799 in Blount Co. TN. She was born ABT 1778 in VA, and died 1856.

Henry was born about 1775 in an area of Cumberland County, PA which in 1784 became Franklin County. The 1790 Franklin Co. PA census has a listing for Dolly Herehart at 1-1-1. In 1790, Henry would have been 15 years old (according to the 1850 census) and was probably living with his mother.

Henry left Pennsylvania with his brother Nicholas sometime after 1793. They were in Blount County, TN as early as Nov of 1799 when Henry served on several juries. (Blount County, TN Court Records, September 1795-May 1804).

In a case in Blount County court in May 1804, Randel Rutherford for John Sharp sued James Ker and H. Airhart. The jury found for the defendants. (Blount County, TN Court Records, Vol 1, Sep 1795 - May 1804, p. 503.)

Henry Arnhart is listed on a Blount County Court of Pleas and Quarters jury in court records for 27 Feb 1805. James Kerr served on the same jury.

"James Carr and Henry Heirheart to Andrew Miller for value received property on bank of Tennessee River, conditional line between William Barker and James Carr, conditional line between Samuel Carr and James Carr, warranted to be the oldest and best settlement right." Written 25 Jan 1805 and recorded 5 July 1809. Witnesses; Hugh Kelso, Patrick Salvedge. Acknowledged in Blount Co. Court Feb 1807 by Hugh Kelso.

Henry Airhart is listed as being on the oldest known jury list in Rhea County Court in January of 1808 and again in April of 1808. So Henry and his family moved to Rhea County sometime between 25 January 1805 and January of 1808.

Jan 1810 - Rhea County Court Records. Henry Airheart was a purchaser at the estate sale of Daniel Kennedy. Other purchasers were John Howard, Samuel Kerr and James Kerr.

TN Tax Records list a Henry Earhart and a Nicholas Earhart in Blount Co in 1800 and a Henry Airheart and Nicholas Airheart in Blount Co. in 1801. Henry Airheart is listed on the Rhea Co tax lists in 1808, 1809, 1819, 1820, 1821, 1822, 1824, and 1825 with 400 acres and 1 white poll. He is listed on the 1826 tax list with 400 acres and no white poll. This indicates that Henry was over 50 years old (born in 1775) in 1826 and this agrees with his age on later censuses.

Two of Henry's sisters married Cook brothers; a Martin Cook and a George Cook. There is a Blount Co. TN deed dated 2 Jan 1814 which describes a 200 acre plot on the water of the Little Tennessee River as being adjacent to George Cook. There is also a Blount Co. TN deed dated 21 Aug 1805 that mentions "Martin Cook's old conditional line".

Mary Latham Norton states in her application for membership in DAR that Henry Airheart had a sister, Katharine who married _____ Cook. And also a brother Peter that married a Catherine and died in Westmoreland Co. PA. 1814.

Henry Airheart was the bondsman for the marriage of Samuel Carr and Sally Blythe in 1810 in Rhea Co. TN.

Henry Airheart is also listed on a Rhea County jury in March 1816 and again in August of 1820.

In 1820 Samuel Howard was appointed overseer of road from James Coulters to Mrs. Lauderdales ford of the Creek; hands to work under him: Jacob Cook, John Howard's negro man, George Manes, William Howard, Henry Airheart, A. Davids, Joseph Gant, Benjamin McCarty, and Robert Bolton.

Henry Airheart is listed as a "Taxable" in Captain William Howard's Company in Rhea County for 1822.

6 Nov 1826 - Wm Howard and Allison Howard appointed Adms of estate of Abraham Howard, decd; entered into bond with Saml Howard and others for $1200. Henry Airhart and others appointed to lay off year's provisions for the widow and children.

Deed of Conveyance (2 Feb 1828), Rezin Rawlings and John Lock to John Whaley for $1300 in consequence of a Title Bond executed by Danl Rawlings to Henry Airheart, the interest in the Title Bond in part is requested by the said Airheart to vest in the said John Whaley, 160 acres on Richland Creek, including part of 1000 acres tract granted to S. Donelson by NC (No. 210). Mentions Azariah Davids line, Wm Howards line.

In 1831 the construction of the Methodist E. Church was begun in Washington, the first county seat of Rhea Co. Three subscribers were: Henry Airheart, 3000 shingles and 200 board feet of floor planking; James C. Airheart, $2.00; and George C. Airheart, $2.00. Other names on this list which have been connected to the Airhearts: Witt, Whaley, and Frazier.

1830 Census Rhea Co. lists Henry Airheart. p. 395 with 9 males and 4 females in household. One male under 5, 2 males 10-15, 3 males 15-20, 2 males 20-30 and one male 50-60; one female 5-10, one female 15-20, one female 20-30, and one female 40-50. Since Peter, Mary, Catherine, and Ann were all married by this time, Henry could have had more children than are known (1 more boy and 2 girls). Because the boy is under 5 yrs it is unlikely that he is a son, since Jane would have been in her late 40's when he was born; he is more likely to be a grandson. This under 5 year old boy is probably Leander Fraizer, the son of Dorothy Airheart. Dorothy is probably the 20-30 yr old and Elizabeth is the 15-20 yr old.

Deed of Conveyance, Rezin Rawlings and John Locke (Exrs of Daniel Rawlings dec'd) to Henry Airhart for 490 acres on Richland Creek; being the remaining part of the land covenanted to said decedent after deducting that part already conveyed at the special instance and request of said Airheart to John Whaley. Beginning on main fork of Richland Creek at point S 30 W of place where old Kiouka War Trace intersects the extreme height of mountain or divide between waters of Sale Creek and Richland Creek, then direct line to top of shinbone ridge and beginning corner called for in 500 acre tract conveyed by Robert Cotton to Daniel Rawlings, then with John Whaleys line. (25 Sept 1829) (Registered 5 Dec 1831)

By 1839 Henry had moved to Bradley County, TN as he is listed in the 1839 Bradley Co. Tax List in District 8, along with John Ahart, Michel Arehart, Samuel Howard, Allison Hawerd, and James Henry.

1840 Bradley Co. Census lists Henry Arehart with 3 males (one 10-14, one 15-19, and Henry, 60-70) and 3 females in household (Jane and Elizabeth, who evidently never married, and an unknown female - age between 15 and 20 yrs).

Henry purchased 40 acres in Bradley County TN 5 Aug 1841. (Book F, p. 347, grant # 3271, entry # 3383)

1850 Bradley Co. census lists Henry Airheart, age 75, born MD; Jane, age 71, born VA, Elizabeth, age 39, born TN, Daniel, age 31, born TN, also listed are Daniel's wife Ann and 5 children.

The 1880 census shows Daniel Airheart's father's birth place as PA. Also in the 1880 census, John M. Airheart's father's birth place is listed as PA. There was a disputed border area between PA and MD, which later became PA. Franklin Co. PA was once was disputed territory by MD.

Henry is shown in the 1860 census in the same household, but no age is given. Since the official date of the census was June 1, 1860 and this page of the census is dated June 25, 1860 it is possible that Henry was alive on June 1 and died before June 25.

1808 RHEA COUNTY TAX LIST

Another source of information on the early settlers and land owners is the Rhea County Tax List of 1808. Unfortunately, the 1809 through 1818 lists are incomplete.

When the list of individuals that were taxed (total of 112) is compared with the names from the land entry and surveyor's books (100), only 28 names appear on both lists. Of this last number, 16 individuals indicated that they had made improvements or were occupants. Fourteen men who were occupants were not included on the tax lists, leading to the conclusion that the tax collectors did not list everyone. Even William Henry, in whose home the first court was held, was not included on the 1808 tax list! There also is the possibility that the available list is incomplete (location of original is unknown).

So that the various lists can be compared, the 1808 tax list is reproduced below. Several abbreviations are used to conserve space: . . . WP= White Polls; BP= Black Polls. . . .

JURORS FOR COUNTY COURT

If a criteria for qualifying a citizen for jury duty was established, it has not been found. Hundreds of lists dating from 1808 through 1859 have been examined and assembled for future publication.

The oldest known list of jurors is from the 1808 January Session of the County Court. It indicates that the following persons were to be called by the Sheriff, Miller Francis, to serve at the April Session: John Abel, Henry Airheart, Caleb Barr, John Brown, Thomas G. Brown, Samuel Bryson, David Caldwell, James Cowan, Joseph Dunham, Walter Edwards, Richard Farris, Elias Ferguson, James Galbreath, James Gouge Sr., William Henry, John Howard, Grief Howerton, Joseph Johnson, William Johnson, William Kennedy, James Lauderdale, Henry Leginor, John Luck [Locke], John Love, William Lyon, John McElwee, John Meriott, Robert Means, David Murphree, William Noblet, Rezin Rawlings, Hugh Rhea, Daniel Walker, James Walker, George Williams, John Witherspoon, and George Worley. Daniel Rawlings, Clerk of the Court, signed the order.

Another document from the same session lists the men who served, and it would appear that six of those called either did not appear or were excused: Samuel Bryson, David Caldwell, Richard Farris, Henry Leginer, John Love, and James Walker.

On the same document was a list of residents that were to be called by the Sheriff for Jury duty at the 1808 July Session, and included the following names: Cain Abel, Stephen Alexander, William Alexander, Charles Brady, William Buise, Thomas Clark, David Cobb, Joseph Cowan, Samuel Cox, John Cozby, Azariah David, Richard Davis, George Derrick, Jeremiah Dunham [later listed as Duncan], John Dunlap, James Dunmore, William Goad, James Gouge Jr., James Hogg (?), Jackson Howerton, John Hunt, William Lauderdale, John Linzey, William McGill, Nathaniel More (?), John Moore, William Mumfrey, Robert Patterson, Jesse Rhea, Mills Roberson, William Sherill, Henry Sikes, William Smith, James Snelson, Thomas Swaggerty, John Waters, Lemuel Waters, John Wasson, and Joseph Williams.

Another list from the 1808 July Session contains those citizens who were to be summoned for the October 1808 Session and included the following men: Henry Airheart, William Alexander, Daniel Barr, George Brown, Samuel Bryson, David Caldwell, Seymore Catching, John Collins, Jacob Cooke, John Cowan, Samuel Davis, Jacob Derrick, William Goad, Matthew Hubbard, John Johnson, Ezekiel King, Jacob Lamon, John Lauderdale, Amos Lewis, John Lewis, John Locke, John Love, William Lyons, John Martin, David Murphree, John Newton, John Owens, John Peters, Hugh Rhea, James Riddle, Henry Seymore, Valentine Shoults, John Smith, William Smith, William Smith [sic], John Spurlin, James Thompson, Joseph Williams, William Winton, and Thomas Woodward.

In October of 1808, the Jury to be summoned for the 1809 January Session was composed of many of those who had served in April, July, and October 1808, with the addition of only ten new names: William Blankenship, Charles Campbell, Josiah Cranmore, James Handy, John Hill, James Mitchell, William Ramsey, Morgan Rector, Henry Riggle, and Claiborn Waters. Three names of men who had not previously served had been marked out: Robert Locke, Robert Love, and Reuben Reed.

The number of residents called as jurors in 1808 is an indication of the total inhabitants in the new County. Although the records are incomplete, the available lists indicate that over 1000 citizens served as jurors between 1808 and 1837, when the county was not quite 30 years old.

P. 57:

ELECTION OF COUNTY OFFICERS

Based on the minutes of the County Court, the various county offices originally were filled with appointments made by the Court or by elections held within that body. Two of the entries in the County Court minutes are as follows:

27 January 1812 - The Court proceeded to the election of a Sheriff. Miller Francis, Jesse White, and John Howard were candidates. Francis received 7 votes; Howard 5 votes. Miller Francis was reelected as Sheriff; made bond with Joseph Dunham, Robert Means, James Riddle, and George Williams for $5000. He also made bond for $2000 as tax collector with Azariah David, Robert Means, and George Williams. Woodson Francis was appointed Deputy Sheriff. Thomas Woodward appointed Coroner for 2 years; made bond with James Mitchell, Henry Airheart, and Matthew Hubbard.

8 November 1825 - The Court proceeded to the appointment of a Trustee for the County of Rhea for the next suceeding two years, Carson Caldwell, Crispien E. Shelton, and Jonathan Fine, esquires in nomination and upon collecting and counting out the ballots Caldwell had 6, Shelton had 5, and Fine had 1 Vote, whereupon Carson Caldwell was pronounced duly elected Trustee, and the said Caldwell with Thomas Cox, John McClure, James Kelley, and Edmund Bean entered into bond as required by law whereupon the necessary oath was taken by the said Caldwell as the law directs.

Pp. 72-73:

FIRST PUBLIC ROAD

The area south of Whites Creek became a part of Roane County in 1805, and in 1806, the Roane County Court issued an order for the Sheriff to summon jurors to view and mark a public road from Kingston to William Henry's on Richland Creek. The jury was composed of Woodson Francis, William Lee, Samuel Mahan, Edward Wall and Solomon Gueren.

At the December Session, the jury reported that they had "viewed and marked a road from the town of Kingston, crossing the Clinch River . . . crossing Whites Creek at Robert Tutons, then down the valley passing Carlisles, Gabrail Hackworth and Nicholas Hackworth, crossing Piney at Walkers, thence up Wolf Creek, crossing the head branches thereof to Clear Creek where there appears to be a mill about to be built, then crossing the same a small distance below, through the knobs to the Cumberland Valley, then down the said valley to Willie Henry's. Ordered therefore that the same be a public road" (Roane County Road Book 1801-1820, page 25).

This road remained in use for many years and parts of it were later used as the base for roads still in existence (Smyrna Road, for example). A long list of orders can be found in the Rhea County Court minutes appointing overseers for various sections of this road; also for minor locational changes.

In January of 1808, the following petition was presented to the first session of the Rhea County Court of Pleas and Quarterly Sessions (County Court):

The humble petition of Sundry of the inhabitants of said County, humbly prayeth your worships that a jury may be appointed to view and mark off a public road the nearest and best way from William Henrys (the place of holding Court for said County) leading down the Tennessee Valy so as to strike the Indian Boundary in Said Valey and so as not to injure any farm or plantation, And your petitioners in duty bound will ever pray &c."

The petition was signed by Wm Brown, John McElwee, Jacob Wassum, Thos G. Brown, Robert Patterson, Thos Woodward, Charles Gamble, Miller Francis, George Worley, David Davis (?), and Will Lyon.

This road was an extention [sic] of the public road authorized in 18061 the Roane County Court (Kingston to home of William Henry).

During the second session of the County Court (April, 1808), the above road was authorized. It was described as follows: "Beginning at William Henrys, crossing the creek at the mouth of his spring branch, passing by John Howards, crossing the creek again near Lyons mill, from thence along the foot of a small ridge to the southern end thereof, from thence the more direct way to the foot of main Richland creek at two marked maples, from thence passing James Cowans, M. Abels and Joseph Brooks, esquires, to the Indian boundary line." John Howard was appointed overseer.

In 1809 (April Session), two lawsuits were heard by the Grand Jury concerning the road from William Henrys to the Indian Boundary. It appears that Zacheus Watson and Robert Gamble were appointed overseers of two sections of the road and that they allowed the road to become impassable. The reports were signed by William Brown, Solicitor for Rhea County, and both were similar in content to th following:

The Grand jurors for the State impanneled & sworn to examine for the body of the County of Rhea aforesaid upon their oaths do present & say that the road leading from William Henrys the place of holding Court in said County to the Indian Boundary line is a public road & highway, and legally authorized by law, and the Grand jurors aforesaid upon their oath aforesaid do present & say that Zacheus Watson is legally appointed by law Overseer of that part of said public road leading from the bridge at William Lyons Mill on Richland Creek to the ridge that divides the waters of said Richland Creek from the waters of Sale creek and the Grand jurors aforesaid upon their oaths aforesaid, do present & say that Zacheus Watson late of Said County Overseer of the road aforesaid at to wit, in the County aforesaid on the tenth day of April in the year aforesaid and for a long space of time to wit, for fifteen days and upwards, with force & arms, did then & there unlawfully Suffer to be & remain out of sufficient & lawfull repairs & by suffering lay stumps rocks & trees to be & remain therein, greatly to the obstruction & injury of the passage of all travelers passing the aforesaid road & greatly to the obstruction of Carts, Waggons and all other Carriages passing the same, contrary to the Statutes in such cases made & provided, to the evil example of all like offenders and against the peace & dignity of the State.

On 28 January 1811, a petition was submitted to the County Court that concerned a bridge across Richland Creek. The petition is as follows:

To the Worshipfull Court of Rhea County now seting, Gentlemen whereas your humble petitioners find it extremly dificult and nearly impossible to keep a bridge across the little fork of Richland Creek at Mr. Lyons Mill, also its very disagreeable working in the water at this Season of the year to build a bridge. We therefore humbly petition your worships to grant us liberty to cut a new road to some convenient crossing place on said creek and make a convenient ford for the Safe and easy pasage of our Land Carriages. Gentlemen Your Compliance will ever be acknowledged by Your humble petitioners &c. (original in Barnes Papers)

The petition was signed by James Cowan, David Brown, John Rawlings, John Lauderdale, Rezin Rawlings, Palatiah Shelton, James Varnor, Cain Abel, William Buice, John Abel, John Parker, John Cowan, Rubean Bowden?, James Leatherdale, Robert M--atos, Henry Airheart, Jacob Cooke, John Shell, David David, Owan David, William Jenkins, Joseph Alexander, William Alexander, and David Day.

The Court granted the petition during the January, 1811, Session.

It should be noted that the mill referred to in the above road and bridge orders was operated by several individuals and the name was changed over the years (Lyon's, Clark's, Frenche's, Allen's, Keith's, McDonald's, and Whaley's Mill). A raceway ran from Big Richland Creek to the mill site (David Gray notes).

The court ordered on 26 January 1813, "that Jacob Lamon be overseer of the Road from the dividing ridge between Sale and Richland Creeks to the Indian line near Fields old place and that Robert Patterson furnish him a list of hands to work on said Road under him." This order places the southern end of the road near the mouth of Sale Creek where Richard Fields had his settlement. . . .

(3) A household headed by Henry AIRHEART is listed in the 1830 census of Rhea County, TN.

Listed in Henry's household are 1 free white male under 5 years of age; 2 free white males between 10 and 15 years of age; 3 free white males between 15 and 20 years of age; 2 free white males between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age; and 1 free white female between 40 and 50 years of age.

Assuming that Henry is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, he would have been born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that Henry's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, she would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1830 census.

It is unlikely that all of the other persons in Henry's household were Henry's children; Henry's wife may have been too old to have given birth to a son who was born after 1825. However, assuming that all of the other persons are children of Henry and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of eight sons [two of which sons would have been born between 1800 and 1810, three of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1815, two of which sons would have been born between 1815 and 1820, and one of which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census] and three daughters [one of which daughters would have been born between 1800 and 1810, one of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1815, and one of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1830 census].

[Note by compiler: There are several ways to interpret the 1860 census information relating to Henry. One way to interpret the information is as follows: Henry was alive on the actual enumeration date, June 25, 1860; and (2) for some unknown reason, the enumerator failed to list Henry's age in the census schedule. Another way to interpet the information is as follows: (1) the official enumeration date for the 1860 census was June 1, 1860, and all information on the 1860 census schedule was supposed to be as of that date; (2) Henry died between June 1, 1860 and June 25, 1860; and (3) the enumerator counted Henry, but did not list his age because Henry was dead on the actual enumeration date. In any event, the compiler believes that Henry died in or shortly after June 1860.]

Jane CARR was born ABT 1778 in VA, and died 1856. She was the daughter of James CARR and Ann (EWING) _____.

The parentage of Jane can't be proved positively; however there is a large amount of evidence that suggests that Jane's parents were James and Ann Carr.

The DAR Application (#120918) of Mary Latham Norton was filed in the belief that Samuel Carr was the father of Jane Carr. This belief was based only on the fact that Samuel Carr was not assessed for poll tax in 1808 in Rhea Co. as he was over 50 yrs of age. Virkus in the "Compendium of American Genealogy" also gives the parents of Jane Carr as Samuel and Ann Carr; however the lineage is the same as that of Mary Latham Norton and probably came from the DAR application of her mother Maude Witt Latham.

Henry Airheart, who married Jane about 1800, first appears in Blount County, TN records in 1799 when he served on a jury and he remained in Blount County until 1807 when he and James Carr jointly sold property on the Tennessee River.

James Carr first appears in Blount County records in 1795 when he served on a jury. Samuel Carr is first in Blount County records in 1797 when he also served on a jury. Jane Carr was also in Blount County in 1796 when she had a child out of wedlock. "On motion of Thomas Gray attorney for Jane Kerr upon her petition being filed praying for the Maintainance of a Child from James Ewing the reputed father of the said Child - Ordered that the said petition be registered." (Wednesday morning the 14th of June 1796, Blount Co. TN Court Record, Vol 1, Sep 1795-May 1804, p. 28).

Later in Rhea County, where the Carrs and Airhearts had moved about 1808 there was a relinquishment from Ann Carr to Henry Airheart of her right of Administration on the Estate of her late husband, James Carr (deceased). There was also a bond between Samuel Carr and Henry Airheart.

Also it should be noted that Jane named her second son, James and her second daughter, Ann, and she didn't name any son Samuel.

All the evidence presented above points to James and Ann Carr as the parents of Jane.

What is the relationship of Samuel Carr to Jane? Samuel Carr is not listed in Blount County records until 1797. He is listed on the following tax lists: Blount Co. TN 1801, Rhea Co. TN 1819

Samuel was married to Sally Blythe in 1810 in Rhea County and Henry Airheart was bondsman.

When Samuel first appeared in Blount County records in 1797 serving on a jury, he would have had to had been at least 21 and born by 1776 and because he paid taxes in 1819, he was under 50 years of age at that time or born after 1770. This is too late to be the father of Jane who was born about 1778 according to the 1850 census (Jane's age was 71 yrs). So that this Samuel is probably a brother of Jane.

According to 1860 and 1870 census data of several of the Airheart children (Henry and Daniel) their mother was born in VA. James Carr appears in Washington County, Tennessee court records for 1780-1782. (Washington County, TN Court Records, FHL Microfilm #825510) According to Penelope Johnson Allen, the extension of the western boundary line between North Carolina and Virgina (to form Washington County, Tennessee), in 1780, threw a large settlement that had hitherto considered itself to be on Virginia soil, into a second new county named for General Sullivan. Thus when Jane was born in 1778/9, she could have been in VA and a year later in Sullivan County, TN without her parents having moved.

Jane had either three sets of twins or 2 sets of twins and 1 set of triplets. Ann and Catherine were twins and Daniel and Nicholas were twins. John M. and Henry R. were either twins or a set of triplets if Michael was born in 1815, which later census reports seem to indicate.

(2) At the time that Johann Peter ERHARD's family lived in Alsace, it was part of France. Following is some information about Alsace from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Alsace . . . is a cultural and historical region in eastern France, on the west bank of the upper Rhine next to Germany and Switzerland.

From 1982 to 2016, Alsace was the smallest administrative région in metropolitan France, consisting of the Bas-Rhin and Haut-Rhin departments. Territorial reform passed by the French legislature in 2014 resulted in the merger of the Alsace administrative region with Champagne-Ardenne and Lorraine to form Grand Est.

Alsatian is an Alemannic dialect closely related to Swabian and Swiss German, although since World War II most Alsatians primarily speak French. Internal and international migration since 1945 has also changed the ethnolinguistic composition of Alsace. For more than 300 years, from the Thirty Years' War to World War II, the political status of Alsace was heavily contested between France and various German states in wars and diplomatic conferences. The economic and cultural capital of Alsace, as well as its largest city, is Strasbourg. The city is the seat of several international organizations and bodies.

Etymology

The name Alsace can be traced to the Old High German Ali-saz or Elisaz, meaning "foreign domain".[6] An alternative explanation is from a Germanic Ell-sass, meaning "seated on the Ill", a river in Alsace.

History

In prehistoric times, Alsace was inhabited by nomadic hunters.

Pre-Roman Alsace

By 1500 BC, Celts began to settle in Alsace, clearing and cultivating the land. Alsace is a plain surrounded by the Vosges mountains (west) and the Black Forest mountains (east). It creates Foehn winds which, along with natural irrigation, contributes to the fertility of the soil. In a world of agriculture, Alsace has always been a rich region which explains why it suffered so many invasions and annexations in its history.

Roman Alsace

By 58 BC, the Romans had invaded and established Alsace as a center of viticulture. To protect this highly valued industry, the Romans built fortifications and military camps that evolved into various communities which have been inhabited continuously to the present day. While part of the Roman Empire, Alsace was part of Germania Superior.

Alemannic and Frankish Alsace

With the decline of the Roman Empire, Alsace became the territory of the Germanic Alemanni. The Alemanni were agricultural people, and their Germanic language formed the basis of modern-day dialects spoken along the Upper Rhine (Alsatian, Alemannian, Swabian, Swiss). Clovis and the Franks defeated the Alemanni during the 5th century AD, culminating with the Battle of Tolbiac, and Alsace became part of the Kingdom of Austrasia. Under Clovis' Merovingian successors the inhabitants were Christianized. Alsace remained under Frankish control until the Frankish realm, following the Oaths of Strasbourg of 842, was formally dissolved in 843 at the Treaty of Verdun; the grandsons of Charlemagne divided the realm into three parts. Alsace formed part of the Middle Francia, which was ruled by the eldest grandson Lothar I. Lothar died early in 855 and his realm was divided into three parts. The part known as Lotharingia, or Lorraine, was given to Lothar's son. The rest was shared between Lothar's brothers Charles the Bald (ruler of the West Frankish realm) and Louis the German (ruler of the East Frankish realm). The Kingdom of Lotharingia was short-lived, however, becoming the stem duchy of Lorraine in Eastern Francia after the Treaty of Ribemont in 880. Alsace was united with the other Alemanni east of the Rhine into the stem duchy of Swabia.

Alsace within the Holy Roman Empire

At about this time, the surrounding areas experienced recurring fragmentation and reincorporations among a number of feudal secular and ecclesiastical lordships, a common process in the Holy Roman Empire. Alsace experienced great prosperity during the 12th and 13th centuries under Hohenstaufen emperors. Frederick I set up Alsace as a province (a procuratio, not a provincia) to be ruled by ministeriales, a non-noble class of civil servants. The idea was that such men would be more tractable and less likely to alienate the fief from the crown out of their own greed. The province had a single provincial court (Landgericht) and a central administration with its seat at Hagenau. Frederick II designated the Bishop of Strasbourg to administer Alsace, but the authority of the bishop was challenged by Count Rudolf of Habsburg, who received his rights from Frederick II's son Conrad IV. Strasbourg began to grow to become the most populous and commercially important town in the region. In 1262, after a long struggle with the ruling bishops, its citizens gained the status of free imperial city. A stop on the Paris-Vienna-Orient trade route, as well as a port on the Rhine route linking southern Germany and Switzerland to the Netherlands, England and Scandinavia, it became the political and economic center of the region. Cities such as Colmar and Hagenau also began to grow in economic importance and gained a kind of autonomy within the "Décapole" (or "Zehnstädtebund"), a federation of ten free towns.

As in much of Europe, the prosperity of Alsace came to an end in the 14th century by a series of harsh winters, bad harvests, and the Black Death. These hardships were blamed on Jews, leading to the pogroms of 1336 and 1339. In 1349, Jews of Alsace were accused of poisoning the wells with plague, leading to the massacre of thousands of Jews during the Strasbourg pogrom. Jews were subsequently forbidden to settle in the town. An additional natural disaster was the Rhine rift earthquake of 1356, one of Europe's worst which made ruins of Basel. Prosperity returned to Alsace under Habsburg administration during the Renaissance.

Holy Roman Empire central power had begun to decline following years of imperial adventures in Italian lands, often ceding hegemony in Western Europe to France, which had long since centralized power. France began an aggressive policy of expanding eastward, first to the rivers Rhône and Meuse, and when those borders were reached, aiming for the Rhine. In 1299, the French proposed a marriage alliance between Philip IV of France's sister Blanche and Albert I of Germany's son Rudolf, with Alsace to be the dowry; however, the deal never came off. In 1307, the town of Belfort was first chartered by the Counts of Montbéliard. During the next century, France was to be militarily shattered by the Hundred Years' War, which prevented for a time any further tendencies in this direction. After the conclusion of the war, France was again free to pursue its desire to reach the Rhine and in 1444 a French army appeared in Lorraine and Alsace. It took up winter quarters, demanded the submission of Metz and Strasbourg and launched an attack on Basel.

In 1469, following the Treaty of St. Omer, Upper Alsace was sold by Archduke Sigismund of Austria to Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. Although Charles was the nominal landlord, taxes were paid to Frederick III, Holy Roman Emperor. The latter was able to use this tax and a dynastic marriage to his advantage to gain back full control of Upper Alsace (apart from the free towns, but including Belfort) in 1477 when it became part of the demesne of the Habsburg family, who were also rulers of the empire. The town of Mulhouse joined the Swiss Confederation in 1515, where it was to remain until 1798.

By the time of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century, Strasbourg was a prosperous community, and its inhabitants accepted Protestantism in 1523. Martin Bucer was a prominent Protestant reformer in the region. His efforts were countered by the Roman Catholic Habsburgs who tried to eradicate heresy in Upper Alsace. As a result, Alsace was transformed into a mosaic of Catholic and Protestant territories. On the other hand, Mömpelgard (Montbéliard) to the southwest of Alsace, belonging to the Counts of Württemberg since 1397, remained a Protestant enclave in France until 1793.

German Land within the Kingdom of France

This situation prevailed until 1639, when most of Alsace was conquered by France to keep it out of the hands of the Spanish Habsburgs, who by secret treaty in 1617 had gained a clear road to their valuable and rebellious possessions in the Spanish Netherlands, the Spanish Road. Beset by enemies and seeking to gain a free hand in Hungary, the Habsburgs sold their Sundgau territory (mostly in Upper Alsace) to France in 1646, which had occupied it, for the sum of 1.2 million Thalers. When hostilities were concluded in 1648 with the Treaty of Westphalia, most of Alsace was recognized as part of France, although some towns remained independent. The treaty stipulations regarding Alsace were complex. Although the French king gained sovereignty, existing rights and customs of the inhabitants were largely preserved. France continued to maintain its customs border along the Vosges mountains where it had been, leaving Alsace more economically oriented to neighbouring German-speaking lands. The German language remained in use in local administration, in schools, and at the (Lutheran) University of Strasbourg, which continued to draw students from other German-speaking lands. The 1685 Edict of Fontainebleau, by which the French king ordered the suppression of French Protestantism, was not applied in Alsace. France did endeavour to promote Catholicism. Strasbourg Cathedral, for example, which had been Lutheran from 1524 to 1681, was returned to the Catholic Church. However, compared to the rest of France, Alsace enjoyed a climate of religious tolerance.

France consolidated its hold with the 1679 Treaties of Nijmegen, which brought most remaining towns under its control. France seized Strasbourg in 1681 in an unprovoked action. These territorial changes were recognised in the 1697 Treaty of Ryswick that ended the War of the Grand Alliance.

From French Revolution to the Franco-Prussian War

The year 1789 brought the French Revolution and with it the first division of Alsace into the départements of Haut- and Bas-Rhin. Alsatians played an active role in the French Revolution. On 21 July 1789, after receiving news of the Storming of the Bastille in Paris, a crowd of people stormed the Strasbourg city hall, forcing the city administrators to flee and putting symbolically an end to the feudal system in Alsace. In 1792, Rouget de Lisle composed in Strasbourg the Revolutionary marching song "La Marseillaise" (as Marching song for the Army of the Rhine), which later became the anthem of France. "La Marseillaise" was played for the first time in April of that year in front of the mayor of Strasbourg Philippe-Frédéric de Dietrich. Some of the most famous generals of the French Revolution also came from Alsace, notably Kellermann, the victor of Valmy, Kléber, who led the armies of the French Republic in Vendée and Westermann, who also fought in the Vendée.

At the same time, some Alsatians were in opposition to the Jacobins and sympathetic to the restoration of the monarchy pursued by the invading forces of Austria and Prussia who sought to crush the nascent revolutionary republic. Many of the residents of the Sundgau made "pilgrimages" to places like Mariastein Abbey, near Basel, in Switzerland, for baptisms and weddings. When the French Revolutionary Army of the Rhine was victorious, tens of thousands fled east before it. When they were later permitted to return (in some cases not until 1799), it was often to find that their lands and homes had been confiscated. These conditions led to emigration by hundreds of families to newly vacant lands in the Russian Empire in 1803-4 and again in 1808. A poignant retelling of this event based on what Goethe had personally witnessed can be found in his long poem Hermann and Dorothea.

In response to the "hundred day" restoration of Napoleon I of France in 1815, Alsace along with other frontier provinces of France was occupied by foreign forces from 1815 to 1818, including over 280,000 soldiers and 90,000 horses in Bas-Rhin alone. This had grave effects on trade and the economy of the region since former overland trade routes were switched to newly opened Mediterranean and Atlantic seaports.

The population grew rapidly, from 800,000 in 1814 to 914,000 in 1830 and 1,067,000 in 1846. The combination of economic and demographic factors led to hunger, housing shortages and a lack of work for young people. Thus, it is not surprising that people left Alsace, not only for Paris - where the Alsatian community grew in numbers, with famous members such as Baron Haussmann - but also for more distant places like Russia and the Austrian Empire, to take advantage of the new opportunities offered there: Austria had conquered lands in Eastern Europe from the Ottoman Empire and offered generous terms to colonists as a way of consolidating its hold on the new territories. Many Alsatians also began to sail to the United States, settling in many areas from 1820 to 1850. In 1843 and 1844, sailing ships bringing immigrant families from Alsace arrived at the port of New York. Some settled in Texas and Illinois, many to farm or to seek success in commercial ventures: for example, the sailing ships Sully (in May 1843) and Iowa (in June 1844) brought families who set up homes in northern Illinois and northern Indiana. Some Alsatian immigrants were noted for their roles in 19th-century American economic development. Others ventured to Canada to settle in southwestern Ontario, notably Waterloo County.

Jews

By 1790, the Jewish population of Alsace was approximately 22,500, about 3% of the provincial population. They were highly segregated and subject to long-standing antisemitic regulations. They maintained their own customs, Yiddish language, and historic traditions within the tightly-knit ghettos; they adhered to Talmudic law enforced by their rabbis. Jews were barred from most cities and instead lived in villages. They concentrated in trade, services, and especially in money lending. They financed about a third of the mortgages in Alsace. Official tolerance grew during the French Revolution, with full emancipation in 1791. However, local antisemitism also increased and Napoleon turned hostile in 1806, imposing a one-year moratorium on all debts owed to Jews. In the 1830-1870 era, most Jews moved to the cities, where they integrated and acculturated, as antisemitism sharply declined. By 1831, the state began paying salaries to official rabbis, and in 1846 a special legal oath for Jews was discontinued. Antisemitic local riots occasionally occurred, especially during the Revolution of 1848. The merger of Alsace into Germany in 1871-1918 lessened antisemitic violence.

Struggle between France and united Germany

The Franco-Prussian War, which started in July 1870, saw France defeated in May 1871 by the Kingdom of Prussia and other German states. The end of the war led to the unification of Germany. Otto von Bismarck annexed Alsace and northern Lorraine to the new German Empire in 1871. France ceded more than 90% of Alsace and one-fourth of Lorraine, as stipulated in the treaty of Frankfurt. Unlike other members states of the German federation, which had governments of their own, the new Imperial territory of Alsace-Lorraine was under the sole authority of the Kaiser, administered directly by the imperial government in Berlin. Between 100,000 and 130,000 Alsatians (of a total population of about a million and a half) chose to remain French citizens and leave Reichsland Elsaß-Lothringen, many of them resettling in French Algeria as Pieds-Noirs. Only in 1911 was Alsace-Lorraine granted some measure of autonomy, which was manifested also in a flag and an anthem (Elsässisches Fahnenlied). In 1913, however, the Saverne Affair (French: Incident de Saverne) showed the limits of this new tolerance of the Alsatian identity.

During the First World War, to avoid ground fights between brothers, many Alsatians served as sailors in the Kaiserliche Marine and took part in the Naval mutinies that led to the abdication of the Kaiser in November 1918, which left Alsace-Lorraine without a nominal head of state. The sailors returned home and tried to found an independent republic. While Jacques Peirotes, at this time deputy at the Landrat Elsass-Lothringen and just elected mayor of Strasbourg, proclaimed the forfeiture of the German Empire and the advent of the French Republic, a self-proclaimed government of Alsace-Lorraine declared its independence as the "Republic of Alsace-Lorraine". French troops entered Alsace less than two weeks later to quash the worker strikes and remove the newly established Soviets and revolutionaries from power. With the arrival of the French soldiers, many Alsatians and local Prussian/German administrators and bureaucrats cheered the re-establishment of order.

Although U.S. President Woodrow Wilson had insisted that the région was self-ruling by legal status, as its constitution had stated it was bound to the sole authority of the Kaiser and not to the German state, France would allow no plebiscite, as granted by the League of Nations to some eastern German territories at this time, because the French regarded the Alsatians as Frenchmen liberated from German rule. Germany ceded the region to France under the Treaty of Versailles.

Policies forbidding the use of German and requiring French were promptly introduced. In order not to antagonize the Alsatians, the region was not subjected to some legal changes that had occurred in the rest of France between 1871 and 1919, such as the 1905 French law on the separation of Church and State.

Alsace-Lorraine was occupied by Germany in 1940 during the Second World War. Although it was never formally annexed, Alsace-Lorraine was incorporated into the Greater German Reich, which had been restructured into Reichsgau. Alsace was merged with Baden, and Lorraine with the Saarland, to become part of a planned Westmark. During the war, 130,000 young men from Alsace and Lorraine were conscripted into the German army, allegedly against their will (malgré-nous), and in some cases volunteered for the Waffen SS. Some of the latter were involved in war crimes, such as the Oradour-sur-Glane massacre. Most perished on the eastern front. The few that could fled to Switzerland or joined the resistance. In July 1944, 1500 malgré-nous were released from Soviet captivity and sent to Algiers, where they joined the Free French Forces.

After World War II

Today, the territory is in certain areas subject to some laws that are significantly different from the rest of France - this is known as the local law.

In more recent years, the Alsatian language is again being promoted by local, national, and European authorities as an element of the region's identity. Alsatian is taught in schools (but not mandatory) as one of the regional languages of France. German is also taught as a foreign language in local kindergartens and schools. However, the Constitution of France still requires that French be the only official language of the Republic.

(3) A household headed by John H. LEA is listed in the 1830 census of Carter County, TN.

Listed in John H.'s household are 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 2 free white females under 5 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

Since only one free white male is listed in John H.'s household, he must be the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age. He was born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that John H.'s wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that the other persons in John H.'s household, those children would have consisted of two daughters [which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census).

(4) A household headed by John LEE is listed in the 1850 census of Bradley County, TN.

John is listed in the 1850 census as a farmer who was then 45 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1805. According to the 1850 census, he was born in TN.

Listed with John is his wife, Elizabeth, who was then 43 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1847. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN.

Also listed with John is his daughter, Emeline, who was then 22 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1828. According to the 1850 census, she was born in TN.

The compiler believes that the second Sarah (the one who was then 11 years of age) may really have been a son named Samuel. Samuel is listed in John's household in 1860, and would have been about 11 years of age in 1850.]

Trinidad, Yesterday and Tommorrow

By Noni Dean - Lake Shopper Editor

The earliest settlers [of the City of Trinidad, Henderson County, TX] were probably the Airhearts, the Spivey's, and the Galinores. In these early years, ferries crossed the Trinity and one of the earliest settlers was Enos Spivey, who in the late 1840's bought a ferryboat operation from Mr. Brandenberg, who then operated it from the Navarro County side of the Trinity River. Spivey moved it to higher ground on the Henderson County side.

O.M. Airheart came into the Trinidad area in the early 1850's and bought the ferry from Spivey. This ferry was in very active usage for many years as settlers of surrounding counties used it to cross at this point. Mrs. Burroughs who ran a boarding house in her later years in Denton recalled crossing with her family and 11 other families about 1858 after a huge overflow on the Tennessee had taken the lives of her two brothers. She also said they had to camp for three weeks before the Trinity fell enough to cross. Two other ferries were also used, one called the Achers ferry and Wildcat ferry.

Special Laws of The State of Texas Passed at the Session of the Thirteenth Legislature Begun and Held at the City of Austin, January 14, 1873

CHAPTER CXXII.

An Act granting a charter to O. M. Airheart, to create, keep and run a Ferry-boat at the Spivey Crossing, on Trinity River, in Henderson County and Navarro County.

Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas, That O. M. Airheart, of the county of Henderson, is hereby authorized to keep and run a ferry-boat, at the old Spivey crossing, on Trinity river, on the road leading from Athens, in Henderson county, to Corsicana, in Navarro county.

See. 2. That the said O. M. Airheart be subject to the general laws of the State of Texas, governing the establishment of ferries.

Sec. 3.

Sheriffs of Navarro County Texas

NO SHERIFFS DURING 1868 and 1869
From the middle of 1867 until the middle of 1870, Navarro County did not have a sheriff. The principal reason was that Federal troops were in power and overruled the sheriffs in their official capacities. Also, crime and disorder was rampant. Any official duties were performed by precinct constables by Negro officers of the Union army.

JAMES A. NELMS, July 16, 1870 - August 1872
Texas was readmitted to the union March 30, 1870 but was still a police ruled state. On July 16, 1870, Gov. Edmond J. Davis appointed Nelms sheriff and his $30,000 bond was signed by Jacob Eliot and O. M. Airheart. Without a sheriff for three years, county law and order was in bad condition. The District Clerk, W. B. Johnston, killed by a deputy sheriff, William Smithy, Dec 4, 1870 and two days later killed a town saloon keeper H. R. Morrell, then went to Austin where he was protected from prosecution by Gov. Davis. Nelms resigned his office in August 1872 and Gov. Davis appointed James H. Brent sheriff. Nelms later served as a policeman, a gin repairman, a farmer, a commission merchant and an auctioneer according to The Corsicana Observer.

AIRHEART, Peter Jr. (I4592)
 
231 (1) "Airheart Connections," a WorldConnect Family Tree on rootsweb.com:

Peter EARHART was born BEF 1724, and died BEF 27 MAY 1787 in Hamilton Twp, Franklin Co. PA. He was the son of Johannes Peter ERHARD and Agnes.

During the time of the troubles in the Palatine region of Germany the Airhearts emigrated first to Holland and then to the United States in the mid 1750s.

The ship "Phoenix", John Mason, Captain, from Rotterdam, arrived 28 Aug 1750 in Philadelphia, PA. On board were: Peter Erhart, no age given; Dietrich Erhart, also no age given. The "Oath of Alligence List" which would have given their ages, did not survive.

A Peter Ehrhart was granted a land warrant for 50 acres, surveyed in Philadelphia Co. on 6 Aug 1750. This was 22 days before the Phoenix arrived so this may not be the same Peter Erhart.

Peter and Sophia Erhard had a daughter, Dorthea, baptised in a Tohickon Church in Bucks Co. in 1758. Dietrich and Maria Erhard were married in Lancaster Co. in 1751 and had a son, John Peter, baptised in Tohickon Church in Bucks Co. in 1761.

So Peter and Dietrich not only arrived on the same boat, but they were both in Bucks Co. at the same time. They could not have been father and son, as proposed by some researchers, since the Franklin County, PA Orphans Court documents do not mention a son named Dietrich (nor any children of Dietrich as they would have if Dietrich had been a son of Peter and was deceased); but they were certainly related, perhaps brothers or cousins. Some descendents of Peter's son, Henry, report that the Airhearts came from Alsace, which lends support to the theory.

Peter is in Paradise Township, York Co. PA tax records in 1762 and 1769 .

Peter, son of Peter Erhard and wife was born 27 Dec 1763 and was baptised 15 Jan 1764 in St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, York Co. PA.

Peter Ehrhard was a witness to the baptism of Anna Maria Kramer daughter of Lorenz and Anna Maria Kramer, born 4 Sep 1770 at Friedensaal Lutheran Church, York Co. PA.

There are no records for a Peter Erhard in York Co. after 1770 until the 1790s, and the Peter in records after 1790 was a different, younger Peter.

Peter was in Cumberland County by 1780 when he was first listed in the tax lists. Cumberland Co. tax lists began in 1778 and were taken every year until 1785. Peter Earhart is first listed on the Cumberland Co. tax lists in 1780, 1781, and 1782, in Letterkenny Township, with 160 acres, 2 horses, and 4 cattle. When Franklin Co. was formed from Cumberland Co. in 1783, Letterkenny township became part of Franklin Co. Later Green township was formed from part of Letterkenny.

The Pennsylvania Militia Law of 1777 required every male between the ages of 18 and 53 to participate. Since Peter is not listed in the militias of York or Cumberland counties, Peter was born at least by 1724 and was too old to be required to be part of the militia. His sons Nicholas and Peter are listed in the Cumberland Co. PA Militia in 1780. John, the oldest son is not listed, but he was in Bedford Co. by 1774. Not all of the Militia lists have survived for Bedford County.

Orphans Court, Franklin Co. PA: from a George Earhart, only son of a John Earhart (deceased), to his uncle, Peter Earhart. The said John and Peter were sons of a Peter Airheart who died before Jan 1790 in Franklin Co. leaving the following issue: John Earhart, eldest son, died before 1802 (date of deed), left one son, George; Catharine Earhart m. Martin Cook; Mary Earhart m. George Cook; Dolly Earhart m 1st Phillip Harman, 2nd, Archibald Bequeath (?); Nicholas; Peter; Elizabeth Earhart m Adam Small; Michael; Henry; and George. From known birthdates and census records this listing is believed to be in birth order.

The land of Peter Earhart, deceased is described as adjoining the land of Robert Baird, Andrew Taylor, and William Plumstead.

Children:

1. John EARHART b: ABT 1752

2. Catharine EARHART b: ABT 1754

3. Mary EARHART b: ABT 1756

237 (1) "Alan Percy," from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, accessed December 30, 2010:

Alan Percy (c.1480-1560) was an English churchman and academic, Master of St John's College, Cambridge, and later Master of Trinity College, Arundel which he surrendered to Henry VIII in 1545.

Life

He was third son of Henry Percy, 4th Earl of Northumberland and Maud, daughter of William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke. He is not known to have been educated at a university, but was vicar of Giggleswick, Yorkshire, from 1508 to 1517. On 6 May 1515 he received the rectory of St. Anne, Aldersgate, London, which he held till 1518.

The new foundation of St. John's College, Cambridge, chose him as their second master on 29 July 1516, probably with an eye to his Lancastrian connections and family influence, But he resigned the mastership two years later on 1 November 1518; the college granted him a small pension and some residence privileges. On 2 April 1520 Henry VIII gave him a house and garden at Stepney, Middlesex, and he gave up claims on the college the following year.

With other preferments he pursued a clerical career. On 25 October 1521 he became rector of St. Mary-at-Hill, London, which he held for the rest of his life. In 1526 Thomas Boleyn, Viscount Rochford presented him to the rectory of Mulbarton, Norfolk. He became Master of the collegiate church of the Holy Trinity at Arundel, where he succeeded the musician Edward Hygons at some point between 1535 and 1539. The College might have escaped the Dissolution of the Monasteries, since in the early 1540s it had been granted property from Hayling Priory, and other land from the dissolved St John's Priory at nearby Poling and Shipley. But an eventual dissolution of the College was prompted at court by Henry Lord Maltravers; and a late stage Percy joined with the two fellows in surrendering it to the king on 12 December 1545.

Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk gave him the rectory of Earsham, Norfolk, in 1558; he had also been rector of Stanley Regis, Gloucestershire from 1551. Percy died in May 1560, and was buried in the old chapel of St. John's College, where there were a brass and a marble tomb to his memory.
