The REV. HENRY HAGGARD Family (continued)

Rev. Henry Haggard professed the Baptist faith in Albemarle County, VA, and became a licensed preacher. In his 30's he moved to the frontier in North Carolina where he established several churches and watched the formation of the State of Tennessee. At the age of 70, Henry carried his faith to the frontier wilderness in central Alabama where he remained the rest of his life.

About 1757 during the French and Indian War (1754-1763) when Henry was 11 years old, his parents moved 30 miles to the west, where they settled near present Coveville in Louisa County, VA, at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where Henry and his brothers and sisters grew to adulthood.

In the mid 1760's, Henry married Dorothy "Dolly" Randolph, presumed daughter of Richard Randolph of Curles of Albemarle County, VA. James Randolph, a possible son, was reported to have been a near kinsman of the celebrated John Randolph of Roanoke.

The Haggards, as well as the Gentrys and Randolphs, belonged to the Baptist faith whose evangelical teachings contrasted sharply with the sedate ritual of the Established Church (Anglican). The Baptists for many years had been legally recognized in Virginia as a dissenting denomination, but they still had to pay taxes to support the Established Church. In the late 1760s, the Baptist preachers began a crusade from their pulpits for religious equality. Although there was still a large number of planters in the Tidewater and Piedmont areas of Virginia who sincerely supported their Anglican Church, the mood in the colonies was changing. Religious as well as political freedom was welling to the surface.

Coming to the aid of the Baptist preachers, who had been arrested and jailed for speaking out, was the great orator Patrick Henry (1736-1799) who defended many of the preachers. Additional support came in 1776 from Thomas Jefferson (1743-1836), a neighbor of the Haggards, who presented legislation exempting the dissenters from paying the tax. Thomas Jefferson years later listed his statutes for religious freedom among his greatest accomplishments. Henry's father Nathaniel Haggard was a signer of a petition for religious freedom submitted to the government at Williamsburg in November 1776.

In 1773, Henry Haggard, in his late 20s, and wife Dorothy "Dolly" (Randolph) Haggard, became charter members of the Albemarle Baptist Church. With 46 of their neighbors, they met on 9 January 1773, at the Lewis Meeting House. Also present were Henry's uncle Robert Gentry, Robert's son Charles Gentry and wife Elizabeth, as well as Dolly's presumed brothers and sisters: James, Thomas, John, Elizabeth, Susannah, and Mary Randolph (spelled Randol in the church records). Henry became a licensed preacher of this church in 1778 and was appointed an elder.

The congregation met one weekend each month. On Saturday they had a short sermon followed by a church conference where along with regular church business, the differences and misconduct of the members was discussed and hopefully settled. The Baptists had strict rules and those who erred were expected to acknowledge their sin and request forgiveness, or they would be excluded or excommunicated. On Sundays they had a worship service with a long sermon. Minutes of the Saturday meetings were kept by a church clerk. A few of these old church minutes have survived. The churches within a specific area belonged to an Association which held annual meetings to which each church sent delegates. Minutes of some of these Association Meetings have also survived.

There were generally two ways by which a person could join the Baptist Church--"by experience" or "by letter". If a person wanted to join the Baptist Church for the first time, he needed to give evidence that he acknowledged sin in his life, had confessed this sin, had sought forgiveness of God for this sin and had truly committed himself to God and the church. He would thus be received "by experience" into the church. A person who had previously belonged to a Baptist Church, but had moved and wanted to join the church in his new community, would submit a "letter of dismissal" from his former church, stating that he was a member in good standing. Presenting this letter he would then be received "by letter" into the new church.

A Baptist who felt a call to preach and was acceptable by his congregation could be licensed to preach by this church, who would then sponsor him. These licensed preachers played active roles and often served as delegates to the Association Meetings. They were permitted to preach in public, however they generally did not administer Baptism or The Lord's Supper, as did the ordained ministers.

Ordination usually required the presence of two or more ordained ministers, usually from nearby churches. Henry Haggard was to remain a licensed preacher throughout his life. His son Noah would become ordained.

The Haggards and Gentrys, living at the base of the Appalachian Mountains, would become a part of the early migration over and down the other side of those mountains. These were restless times. Settlement having already reached the Appalachians, frontiersmen and greedy land speculators alike were beginning to explore the many parallel rivers (Holston, Clinch, Powell, etc.) and mountains (Blue Ridge, Alleghany, Cumberland, etc.) which made a barrier. Hunters and traders as early as the 1740's had traveled the great "War Path" southwest down the Holston River to trade with the Cherokee Indians along the Tennessee River and in 1750 a pass (the Cumberland Gap) had been found through the furthest mountains in the range.

The increasing momentum, however, was then forced to an abrupt halt which lasted 15 years as the French fought unsuccessfully to keep what they thought was their land (French and Indian War 1754-1763) and King George III of England restricted by proclamation settlement past the Atlantic watershed (1763-1768). Finally in 1768 treaties were made with the major Indian tribes to the west allowing limited settlement.

The treaty with the Cherokees in the Virginia/North Carolina area in 1768 allowed settlement as far west as the upper Holston River. Families soon moved in and in 1770 the first permanent settlement in what is now Tennessee was established at Wautauga. From this area settlement slowly advanced south down the Tennessee River as new treaties were made with the Cherokees. The main flow of settlers, however, moved through the Cumberland Gap then northwest into the Kentucky region of Virginia. Both of these areas would take a heavy beating by the indians during the Revolutionary War (1776-1783), since by the treaties the indians were loyal to the English Crown.

In 1776 Henry's uncle Robert Gentry settled at Wautauga and in 1783 moved south to the French Broad River. About 1782 Henry Haggard joined him. This area of North Carolina, 13 years later (1796) became the State of Tennessee. In 1788, Henry's parents Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Gentry) Haggard and the rest of their children, most of them now married, moved from Albemarle County, VA, to the Kentucky region where they settled in present Clark County. This area of Virginia became the present State of Kentucky.

In June of 1775 James Randolph, about 17 years of age, was excommunicated by the Albemarle Baptist Church for a breach of the third commandment. (Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain.) He was not at the meeting where the matter was discussed; however he was at the next meeting where he confessed. He then requested excommunication and as stated in the church minutes, "Seeing no sign of repentance, proceeded."

A few months later, in November of 1775, Robert Gentry's son Charles Gentry, about 20 years old, was brought to account by the church for "ebriosity, anger and aggravation." In this case, however, the church believed his repentance and accepted his confession. Charles apparently had already decided to move. He had sold the 200 acres he inherited from his grandfather Phillip Joyner and at the same November church meeting, he and his wife asked for letters of dismissal.

Charles Gentry and James Randolph may have left for North Carolina that fall, but most likely they waited until the next spring to allow Charles' father to settle his affairs and join them. On February 18, 1776, Robert Gentry with his wife Judith sold their 234 acres on Ivy Creek to John Woodson and in May, received his letter of dismissal from the church. Wife Judith apparently had never joined.

Thus in the spring of 1776 Henry Haggard's uncle Robert Gentry, now 46 years old, and his son Charles and their families along with James Randolph, who had or soon would marry Robert's daughter Sarah, and possibly others, headed out traveling down the valleys of the Appalachians to the Wautauga settlement, a trip of over 200 miles.

Although the Wautauga area had only been settled a few years when the Gentrys arrived, there were already enough people in this wilderness area to petition the North Carolina legislature requesting their own county. An act was signed December 18, 1777, creating Washington County. The site for the county seat was selected at the head of Little Limestone Creek and named Jonesboro, in honor of Willis Jones the North Carolina Revolutionary War leader. Charles Gentry served on the first grand jury which was empaneled in May 1778 at the second meeting of the Washington County court.

The Revolutionary War (1775-1783) was then in progress and undoubtedly these men were caught up in the bloody fighting with the Cherokee Indians who were now allies of the British.

The Gentrys and Randolphs settled on Big and Little Limestone Creeks and began processing their patents. (Robert Gentry was patented 375 acres on Little Limestone on November 10, 1784; Charles Gentry two tracts of 250 acres each on Big Limestone on October 24, 1782; James Randolph 302 acres on Big Limestone adjoining a Thomas Randolph on October 13, 1783. All were signed by North Carolina Gov. Alexander Martin. They paid 50 shilling per 100 acres. Washington County records show them "of Greene County" selling the land. Greene County was formed in 1783 from part of Washington County.

The Revolutionary War, however, caused a delay and by the time Robert Gentry's patent was issued in 1784, they had already moved south to the French Broad River taking advantage of a dramatic move by the North Carolina legislature in 1783.

The legislature of North Carolina, in need of money to pay the expenses of the Revolutionary War, and in part in retaliation against the Indians for siding with the British, had in 1783 opened land extending south along the Appalachian Mountains from Washington County, VA, to the French Broad River and Big Pigeon River, charging L10 per 100 acres in post-war depreciated money. The Gentrys and Randolphs were among the first to move. By now Henry Haggard had joined them.

The records do not tell us when Henry Haggard actually moved to North Carolina. The last record we have of him in Albemarle County, VA, was in 1778 when he was named an elder of his church. He had moved to North Carolina prior to 1782 if his daughter Susan was born in that year "in Tennessee" as claimed in the 1850 census. We know that Henry fought in the Revolutionary War since he was listed in 1840 as a pensioner.

Regardless, it appears that by 1782 Henry and Dorothy "Dolly" (Randolph) Haggard, who now had five children (David, Joel, Henry, James, and Polly), were living in North Carolina, possibly with Henry's uncle Robert Gentry on Little Limestone Creek, where daughter Susannah may have been born. In 1783 Henry and his family moved to the French Broad River where daughter Elizabeth and son Noah were probably born.

The Haggards and Gentrys settled on or near Kelso Mill Creek which was also known as Lyles Creek and on today's map is Rimmer Creek. Henry Haggard patented 300 acres on a branch of Kelso Mill Creek and his uncle Robert Gentry patented 475 acres at the head of the creek. James Randolph settled on 600 acres nearby. The patents were issued by North Carolina Gov. Richard Caswell on September 20, 1787. On April 1783 this area became known as Greene County in honor of Nathaniel Greene, and site for a county seat was selected 30 miles north of the Haggards home named Greenville.

To secure federal protection for the Tennessee Territory, the North Carolina legislature suddenly ceded their western lands to the United States as a present. But apparently no one in Washington became enthusiastic about the gift, and refused even to acknowledge it. After four or five years some of the settlers, who had not been satisfied with the support the North Carolina government had provided them, jumped at the opportunity and created their own State of Franklin with John Sevier as governor.

In November 1784, however, North Carolina changed its mind and repealed the act, but the decision was too late. The settlers were now committed to their new government which was aggressively handling their land and indian problems. In 1785 Gov. John Sevier met with the Cherokees at the mouth of Dumpling Creek and a treaty was signed allowing settlement south of the French Broad River as far as the ridge between the Big and Little Tennessee Rivers.

At first there was strong support for the new state. Not one of the western counties (Washington, Greene and Sullivan) sent representatives to the North Carolina legislature in 1785. By 1786, however, Gov. John Sevier was losing his backing and all but Greene County had representatives. Greene County, where the Haggards lived had the most to lose. Many of its settlers had moved south of the French Broad River into the area opened by the treaty of Dumpling Creek, a treaty which the North Carolina government did not recognize; thus their lands were in jeopardy. In 1788 the State of Franklin was finally dissolved.

Meanwhile, as the State of Franklin was struggling to survive, a small group of 12 Baptists met on 25 March 1786 to form the French Broad Baptist Church. Among those twelve were Henry and Dolly (Randolph) Haggard, Robert Gentry, Charles Gentry, Tabitha Gentry, and James Randolph. Charles Gentry, who was appointed clerk, signed his name with a flourish to the first page of the minute book. This little congregation, whose church was located on the river 2.5 miles east of the present Dandridge, met the first weekend of each month and for many years never had more than 40 members.

In 1786 there were six Baptist Churches in western North Carolina (East Tennessee). That year they joined to create the Holston Baptist Association, which at first met twice a year. In nine years the Association had grown to 36 churches and in 1795 split, the French Broad Baptist Church becoming a member of the new Tennessee Baptist Association. From the small French Baptist Church, Robert Gentry was a delegate to the Association Meetings 12 times from 1788 to 1801; Charles Gentry served six times from 1786 to 1791; James Randolph attended six times until his death in 1794; and Henry Haggard was a delegate three times between 1787 and 1788.

Registered 5 February 1789.

About 1789, six years after settling on the French Broad River, Henry Haggard, now in his 40s, moved his family 15 miles southwest to the rapidly growing area at the forks of the Little Pigeon River where Sevierville was later established. Henry was probably instrumental in establishing the Forks of the Little Pigeon Baptist Church which sent its first delegate to the Association in 1789, Henry serving as delegate in 1790. The church then had 86 members, over twice the number of the French Broad Baptist Church. The congregation built a log church on the riverbank about where West Main Street, Knoxville, is today. It was to grow into one of the largest churches in the Association.

Meanwhile, the flip-flop of government continued. The State of North Carolina again ceded her western territory to the United States, who in 1790 accepted it and created the Territory South of the Ohio River. President George Washington appointed William Blount Territorial Governor. Blount, who was also to serve as Superintendent of Indian Affairs, was immediately faced with a messy treaty problem. On 1 July 1791, Blount met with the indians on a spot on the banks of the Tennessee River (then called Holston River) and negotiated the Treaty of Holston. The new boundary was to follow the Clinch River to its mouth, then east to the North Carolina border following a line dividing the Little River and Little Tennessee River (then called the Tennessee River).

Governor Blount, pleased with the site where the treaty was signed, decided to make the area his home. A town was laid out and named tactfully by Blount for his boss, Henry Knox. Thus Knoxville, some 20 miles west of the Haggard home, became the Capitol of the Territory.

To meet the needs of the growing population, on 11 June 1792, Jefferson County was formed out of lower Greene County by an ordinanace of the Territory South of the Ohio River. The county was named in honor of Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson. In 1793 the site for the county seat was selected about four miles south of Robert Gentry's place and named Dandridge for Martha (Dandridge) Washington, wife of President George Washington.

The population continued to grow. By 1796 more than the required number of people to qualify for statehood had settled in the Territory South of the Ohio River; thus in 1796 the State of Tennessee was born. Twenty years had passed since the arrival of the Gentrys and Randolphs.

Meanwhile, Henry and Dolly (Randolph) Haggard continued to live in the forks of the Little Pigeon River. This area of Jefferson County in 1793 was formed into Sevier County named in honor of John Sevier. (A Sevier County was formed in 1785 by the State of Franklin but only lasted as long as the state). The site for the county seat, to be named Sevierville, was chosen at the forks near the Baptist Church. The town grew rapidly.

The Haggards lived at the forks for about 16 years. It was here that their remaining children (Martin, Lucy, and Nancy) were probably born. The Sevierville County courthouse burned in 1856, destroying the deeds, wills and other important records. Henry served as delegate from the Forks of the Little Pigeon Baptist Church to the Association Meetings from 1790 to 1794, and 1800, 1802, and 1805.

Their children Noah, Martin, Lucy, and Nancy, were apparently still at home about 1807 when Henry and Dolly moved from Sevierville five miles to the southwest. Here "in Crowsons Cove on the waters of Walden Creek", Henry had surveyed on 25 March 1807, 180 acres adjacent to Aaron Crowson, William Crowson, Mr. Hatcher and Cove Creek. He paid $180 ($1/acre); the patent was issued 1 June 1810. The land description given above, which appears in the patent, implies that Henry's land was in the forks of Walden and Cove Creeks.

Henry immediately associated himself with the fledgling Tuckaleeche Baptist Church which had been formed in the area in 1803. In 1807 the church had 79 members, a drop from 102 the previous year. It continued to drop until 1810 when it changed its name to Wears Cove Church; the location may have also changed at the same time. Henry represented the Tuckaleeche Church at the Association Meetings from 1807 to 1809 and the Wears Cove Church in 1811.

In the winter of 1813-14 many of the local men rallied to Andrew Jackson's call for volunteers and marched south to fight the Creek Indians. These soldiers returned home with glowing reports of the rich land they had seen in what is now the State of Alabama. About 1816 Henry Haggard, now 70, with his sons Noah, Martin and daughters Elizabeth Clabaugh, Nancy Fancher, and Lucy Haggard with their families moved to this untamed wilderness. Some of the family may have made the trip later with son Joel about 1818. Sons James and Henry Jr. remained behind in Jefferson County, TN, and son David was living in Kentucky. It is thought that Dorothy "Dolly" (Randolph) Haggard died before the family moved, possibly in 1813.

The Haggards settled near Little Cahaba (Cahawba) River in the central part of Alabama Territory, the area which became Bibb County. Here they were members of the Cahaba Valley Baptist Church, which Henry represented at the first meeting of the Cahaba Baptist Association held 3 October 1818 at the Cahaba Valley meeting house.

Henry Haggard continued to live in the area serving on and off as a delegate to the Association meetings until 1830. On 20 March 1828, as agent for the church he acquired land from Isaac and R. W. Carleton 1 1/2 acres on the south side of the Little Cahaba River which was to be used for a meeting house and burial ground. A church still stands on that site today.

On 15 January 1838 Henry Haggard was granted 80 acres adjacent to his son-in-law James Fancher. He sold the land two years later to William Fryer.

In 1840, 24 years after arriving in Alabama, Henry Haggard, now 96 years of age, was living with his daughter Nancy and her husband James Fancher in Bibb County, AL. Son Martin had died many years earlier soon after arriving in Perry County, AL. Daughter Elizabeth and her husband John Clabaugh and son Joel Haggard were living in Bibb County, AL, but would soon move to Texas, and daughter Susan and John Fancher would move to Noxubee County, MS.

Henry Haggard died in 1842 and although no stone marks his grave, he probably is buried in the cemetery adjoining the Cahaba Baptist Church.
