Thanks for your interest in the CCAN magazine. It is mailed to
members of the Society. The cost of buying the magazine is exactly
the same as becoming a member: $18 per year. So that's a no brainer I
guess. If you aren't a member, we'd love to have you. The CANN will
be mailed out to anyone who wants to become a member any time during

The Board of Directors for 2009 were elected at today's meeting of
the Clay County Genealogical Society Meeting in Manchester. The slate
remained unchanged from 2008 except that LaBerta White was elected
librarian and Betty Allen was elected corresponding secretary. Jean
Baker Cobb was chosen to fill LaBerta White's position as at-large
Agenda items included the new library and acquisitions for it from
Jess Wilson, the history pavilion slated for downtown Manchester, the
CCAN magazine, books to reprint, and the scarcity of volunteers for
keeping the office open on Saturdays. Most of these topics are
covered in some detail in the Fall/Winter issue of the Clay County
Ancestral News Magazine that is in the mail right now. Local members
received their CCANs in the mail today; you members in the far-flung
states will be getting them over the next several days. Treasurer
Danny Finley made a financial report which showed the Society is in
good shape going into the new year. This report is available to
anyone who wants to see it.
It was reiterated that, for security purposes, two volunteers must be
on hand at all times when the office is open. We have had some
trouble getting enough volunteers to man the office on Saturdays.
Since it was reported that there have been very few visitors on
Saturdays during the past six months it was decided to discontinue
Saturday hours except by appointment. The office will be open next
Saturday from 9 to 3 but after that, if you are coming in from out of
state and can only be in town on a Saturday, please call the Society
office(606-598-5507) to make an appointment. Leave a message is no
one is there. Or call me at 599-1952 or email at house12(a)alltel.net.
Thursday and Friday hours remain the same: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
When you get your new CCAN note that it has significantly more
content and pages than the Spring/Summer issue. Please look it over,
determine what you like and don't like, and let us know. And PLEASE
get your submissions for the next issue in so we can have an even
better, larger issue next time. You want 90 pages? No problem. Just
get us 90 pages worth of genealogical reports (look at some in this
issue for suggested formats), remembering early days in Clay County,
hand-me-down family stories, historical articles or mysteries and so
on. Don't worry about whether people want to read your stuff. Trust
me: they do!
Don't forget, also, that 2009 dues will be due shortly and that the
next CCAN will be mailed only to those whose dues are up to date.
Thanks to all, and have a happy Thanksgiving,
Isaac brigman was born 1838 In NC died 1919 according to his tombstone. I have not found his death cert.. Does anyone know who is parent are? I found him i think in 1850 Yancey co NC with a james bradley .A sister mary b. 1837 NC is also in home. Cannot find him in a 1860 census. He served in 3rd tn inf from 1861 to 65.in 1870 he in clay Co. In 1850 and 60 Clay co is a John Brigman b 1822-3Nc . i think he might be a brother to isaac since he named one of his son isaac.Would like to here from someone on this. thank you james welch
Does anyone know who his father is? he only found in 1880 Clay co census.He was born 1842With his wife Tennessee and 2 son john c b. 10-1863 and joseph 1865. Tennessee and her 2 son are buried in White cem off of hw 11 going toward knox co. The marriage index has Sheff white md tennessee cox on 12-11-1875 in Clay.Which would mean the 2 boys were out of wedlock. The cem they are buried in has a alexander white b9-8-1799 and amelia . so i throught sheff might be related.
It appears alexander family, sheff ,tennessee and her 2 son were missed in 1870 census (also missed was curry branch)Sheff was dead by 1900 Tennessee was in son john home.
I tried just useing his first name only in 1850 and 1860 census but no luck.In 1860 tennessee parents were living near the Alexander White.Alexander only had 4 children.only one hugh b. 1826 could have father him or alexander could have.
In the 1910 Clay census in john white home. His mother is living with him and His uncle William white b. 1816. He md 11-4-1841 to Eliza Amis. So if william is his uncle that would made Sheff is brother.But the census taker could be wrong and he was a great uncle due to age difference.Sheff could have had another name. Thank you in advance.
