The Gateway of the Scotch-Irish to the Appalachian Mountains

Appalachian Mountains While attempting to determine whether William Davis had a son Moses, only one page was found of an intestate record which listed no heirs. Everyone did not leave a last will and testament, and an inventory of the estate, sale and subsequent annual returns were usually placed of record by the administrator. The lack of a will and extensive estate records leave the genealogist one choice, that is, to search the deed records for "gift deeds" to the children. Such deeds are viable proofs of relationships. Although there is one will book which survive in Tazewell County, fortunately some early deeds survived. The first settlement in the area occurred during the spring of 1771 when Thomas and John Witten settled at Crab Orchard. Thereafter, this southwestern area of Virginia area was slowly populated as farm land by Scotch-Irish immigrants. The region did not become the county of Tazewell until 1799 when land was taken from portions of Wythe and Russell Counties. Some call the region "the Gateway to the Appalachian Mountains."

Do we have the Guts to Accomplish another Celestial Adventure?

moon Since our quest to reach the moon in the 1960s, this country has colonized there, or on Mars. Although lots of taxpayer money has been spent in sending out rockets for discovery, we have yet to accomplish another great feat such as reaching the "moon!" Perhaps if we take a long look at the past of our ancestors and how they dared to cross the seas to find something better, we might latch on to their strengths and perseverence. Because once they arrived in America, they had to first tame a wilderness through hard working labor. Despite the dangers, they came. Despite the risks, they ventured. Elon Musk, the Canadian business-magnate, dared to dream and create Space-X, and so far, it is looking pretty interesting. Just as our ancestors!
