“Finding the Roots of the LEATHERWOOD Tree 1663 to 1838”, by David G. Leatherwood (2020).
Within a century of John Leatherwood’s death, his uncommon surname spread across America. One branch of the family settled in northern Virginia in the mid-1700s, before moving on to the Spartanburg area of South Carolina by 1800. Another line set down roots in western North Carolina by the 1770s. A group of Leatherwoods tarried around the same time in neighboring eastern Tennessee for a generation, before seeking a new frontier in Texas. Other branches of Leatherwoods later moved from Maryland northeast to New Jersey, and west to Ohio and beyond. Family historians have long debated how branches of the Leatherwood family across America relate to one another. There is general consensus among those who have wrestled with this question that they must all descend from the John Leatherwood who first appears in Maryland records in the 1680s. For the North Carolina branch of the family, however, definitive proof of a connection is lacking. This manuscript draws on recent genealogical discoveries to reconsider the questions that have bedeviled researchers for generations. Leatherwoods living along Virginia’s Occoquan River in the mid-1700s, and a detailed look at purported Leatherwood family ties to the Cherokee in the latter half of the 18th century.

This book is the sixth in a series. In North Carolina, The Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions met in each county until 1868 to handle the business of the county.  This included such things as probating wills, appointing guardians, setting the tax rate, and appointing men to manage or create a road.  This volume covers the years of 1860 to 1868, but we are missing part or all of the years of 1863 – 1866.  Even with those missing records, this book tells a story.

In early 1860 the activity in the court seems normal, but in January 1861 they hold an election for the County delegates to the convention and we begin to see them appointing patrols for various sections of the county.  These patrols were out of concern that slaves may be running away.  The war started in April 1861 and in July 1861 they are electing Volunteer companies.  They also passed an order restricting the travel for slaves without the proper papers.  By 1862 you will notice a change in the type of cases they are dealing with in Court.  Now, their focus is on the death of soldiers and appointing administrators for their estates. The last session during the war was in February 1863.

The record picks up in February 1867. Of interest, the remaining records cover the decision to “subscribe” $100,000.00 in Capital Stock toward the development of The Western North Carolina Railroad in addition to the usual court transactions. Lots of local history as well as records for residents will be found in this volume. 300 pages including an every name index, soft bound, Price:  $55.00  Shipping: $5.50
