TRADITIONAL ORIGIN OF THE McPHERSON FAMILY IN AMERICA

This excerpt from a copyrighted article by L. D. McPherson, contained in the "Kincheloe Family in America" film #877517, Salt Lake FHL, Salt Lake City, UT

Earliest traditions indicate that the McPhersons came from the Highlands of Scotland and settled first in Pennsylvania. These were probably from Abardeen. Other brothers soon followed until there were several. This was abouttwo generations before Daniel McPherson was born in Virginia in 1755, the first emigrants having come by or prior to 1700.

No direct descent from this early American McPherson family from any individual McPherson family or clan in Europe is provableby satisfactory records known to the compiler of this manuscript L. D. McPherson. He refers to a lengthy book "Cluny McPherson" by Amelia Barr.

The compiler states that the American ancestors of Daniel McPherson were settled in Pennsylvania and Virginia before the "Jacobite Rebellions" in Scotland in 1715 and 1745. They were not numbered with the McPherson Clans which Scottish legends link with the Shock Troops of "Bonnie Prince Charlie in his, the last effort by the House of the Stuarts to displace the House of Hanover on the throne of England." These McPherson Clans spoke gaelic and were of Celtic origin. Richard McPherson, M, was born ca. 1730, VA, married ca. 1752, Eleanor Barton, born ca. 1732, and had a son:

1. Daniel McPherson, M1, born 22 October 1755, VA, died 7 October 1844, Roane County, TN, married ca. 1775, Susannah Kincheloe, born 22 September 1755, Prince William County, VA, died 12 July 1850, Rhea County, TN, daughter of John Kincheloe, Jr., and Mary Wickliffe. They had seven children:

1. George McPherson, born ca. 1778, Prince William County, VA.

2. Charles Lewin McPherson, born ca. 1780, Prince William County, VA.

3. Hannah McPherson, born ca. 1782, Prince William County, VA.

4. Ann McPherson, born ca. 1784, Prince William County, VA.

5. Andrew Barton McPherson, M15, born 8 September 1786, Hawkins County, TN.

6. Elijah Daniel McPherson, M16, born 18 July 1789, Fauquier County, VA,

Daniel McPherson, son of Richard and Eleanor (Barton) McPherson, was born 22 October 1755, in Virginia, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, died 7 October 1844, in Rhea County, TN. Identification of his military records is confused by incompleteness which shows two Daniel McPhersons in the Continental Army. He moved with his family from Virginia to Newport, TN, on the Pigeon River near the French Broad River in Cocke County, TN, as early as 1795. There he was soon sheriff of Cocke County for twelve years and trustee of Maury Academy.

Daniel and Susannah removed with their family from Cocke County to Roane County, TN, probably as early as 1810, settling near Kingston, an early capital of Tennessee. They removed later to the adjoining county of Rhea.

NOTE: Prior to the Revolutionary War the Indians and Britain had signed a treaty prohibiting settling west of the Allegheny Mountains. Loyal to their treaty with the British, the Indians reaked havoc by attacking settlements. When the Colonists defeated the British they sought revenge against the indians and declared their lands forfeited. Four or five hostile Indian tribes inhabited Tennessee as late as 1800. White settlers moved into what later became Sullivan and Hawkins counties in the northeast corner of the state and established settlements as early as 1772. Hawkins County was formed in 1786 from Sullivan County. Sullivan County had been formed in 1779 from Washington County. Washington County included most of the present State of Tennessee. Tennessee, the 16th state to join the Union, in 1796.

THE DURANT BOX FACTORY, INC.

Four generations of Haggard men spanning nearly a century of Bryan County, Oklahoma history have owned and operated the Durant Box Factory. Oklahoma's largest producer of hardwood pallets began as a small steam-driven sawmill on the Red River in Indian Territory. The business was founded by Enoch Haggard in the late 1800's and passed to his son Charles Haggard in 1912 and was located in the old Kemp, Oklahoma.

Lillie, it's time we were thinking about educating the kids. If we continue to live here in Ambrose, we'll have to send them away to high school, as well as college," said Father.

"Charles," said Lillie in reply, "I don't think we can afford that expense. Besides, fourteen years is too young to send a child away to school. Why don't we move to a town that has good schools," suggested Mrs. Haggard.

"I've been thinking about that, and I am considering Durant, in Bryan County, OK. It has good schools and is also a college town," replied Mr. Haggard. "Let's sell our home and business and move there."

This idea grew into a reality in August 1920 when the family moved with their four children, Ruby Nell, Earl Augustus, Lucretia Ann and Mildred Marie. This remained their family home until August 1972 when Charles passed away. Lillie preceded her husband in death by ten years, passing away in May 1962.

Charley, as his friends and family called him, had been a lumberman since early manhood. He and his brother-in-law Ransey Duckworth bought half interest in a garage. This he sold in a mild depression. He owned and operated saw mills in Atoka County. Church played an important role in the Haggard family. They were active in the Beach Street Church of Christ.

Lillie and Charles were reared in North Texas near Bonham. Since this was a frontier community, the educational facilities were quite limited. Lillie finished the eighth grade, Charles, the ninth. Charleswas an avid reader. History was of great interest to him. He was able to build or modify machinery to siut his needs.

One summer Charles announced that the family was going on a trip to Mineral Wells, Texas. They bought a tent, some cots, and a camp stove. They bought heavy khaki knickers and shirts. How they did perspire! The touring car was loaded with cots, a tent, extra clothing, bedding, cooking utensils, and six people. When a storm came up camping was forgotten. They had to seek shelter in a hotel. The trip was climaxed by a visit to Dallas where all the traffic and stop lights really shook them up.

Grandmother Haggard would visit from near Bonham, Texas, and tell how her parents came from Ireland and settled temporarily in West Virginia. Ruby, Lucretia, and Mildred graduated from Southeastern State in Durant, OK, and became teachers.

In 1929 Charles rented a building and started manufacturing chicken and turkey coops. This was a disaster. He lost it and a good farm to the banks. In 1935 his son Earl became a partner in the family business, and decided to operate a saw mill and sold bridge and custom lumber. They worked hard and long hours and finally their efforts began to pay off. They outgrew that location and moved north of town.

During World War II, the factory aided the war effort by building meat export boxes that were used by the government to ship food supplies to Europe. The factory also manufactured ammunition boxes.

In 1950 Charles and Lillie (Cox) Haggard celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. They enjoyed their family and their church until Lillie died in 1962, and Charles in 1967 or 1972.

The year 1950 also began a new chapter for the factory. No longer needed were the old wood products of chicken coops and meat boxes. The conversion to manufacturing pallets began. the first step in a new direction was the incorporation of the family business in 1952 as The Durant Box Factory, Inc. It was advertised as supplying the entire Southwest with the famous "Bulldog" pallets.

The summer of 1956 brought disaster to the business. The factory was totally destroyed by fire, and the Haggard family moved to San Antonio. Two years later Earl returned, determined to rebuild. The new Durant Box Factory was constructed just east of the old ruined plant.

The next addition to the firm was the fourth generation of continuous family ownership -- Earl's son, Phillip, joined the company in 1965.

One hundred years of operation with the same family ownership is a proud heritage of courage and adaptability. The Durant Box Company is looking to its past in order to prepare for the future.
