The Family of James Scott &
Sarah Dickey Scott

Contributed by Marsha Cope Huie


West Tennessee Scott Family: Descendants of James Scott, born 1777, & wife Sarah Dickey Scott, also born 1777, who migrated from the Carolinas to West Tennessee.
Sources: Ora McCorkle Huie; Katie Pearl McCorkle Fox; Maury Adolphus Huie; Marsha Cope Huie--all born and raised in the Newbern-Yorkville, Tennessee. Marsha Huie recorded oral recollections of her aunt, Sarah Elisabeth Huie, born 1904, and her mother Joyce Cope Huie, born 1915. The old McCorkle Family records stem from two daughters of John Edwin McCorkle & Tennessee Alice Edwards Scott: Ora Alice McCorkle (Mrs. Julius Adolphus "Dolph" Huie) and Katie Pearl McCorkle (Mrs. Ed Lee Fox). Tennie Scott McCorkle was a daughter of r William Scott of Hardeman Co. & a granddaughter of the Sarah Dickey Scott & James Scott who were each born in 1777. Son of Ora, Maury Adolphus "Mutt" Huie, 1895-1973, typed up Aunt Kate's and Aunt Ora's records, and I have undertaken to update the old records Whatever is written henceforward in the 1st person ("I") is from me, Marsha Cope Huie.

Generation One. James Scott, born 20 August 1777, married Sarah Dickey on Dec. 22, 1801. The wife Sarah Dickey (Scott) was born Oct. 30, 1777. James & Sarah Dickey Scott were originally interred in the old Yorkville Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery; I, Marsha Huie, moved their stones for preservation circa 1984 to the McCorkle Cemetery, Dyer Co., Tenn. The ancestry of Sarah Dickey Scott is discussed at the end of this document, which presents two conflicting views of Sarah Scott
's DICKEY ANCESTRY: View One (Stuart Hoyle Purvine's view in his history of the Purviance family) and View Two (the view of James Ragon, of Jackson, Tenn., who married Natalie Cockroft (Ragon), a descendant of RAH & Tirzah Scott McCorkle through their son James Scott McCorkle, M.D., of Newbern). My "Aunt Beth" Sarah Elisabeth Huie, 1904-1993, thought James & Sarah Dickey Scott were relatively prosperous for the West Tennessee farming area, but she did not know why. It probably took very little to be considered wealthy on the frontier. Their farm was in Dyer County, south of today's Highway 77, the main Newbern-Yorkville Highway, and a bit west of the Gibson County line.

Generation II: Children of James Scott & wife Sarah Dickey (Scott), each born in 1777:

  1. 1. Lemuel Scott, born 2 Sept. 1804 - died 17 Sept. 1866; other records say Lemuel Scott was born on 2 Sept. 1801. On January 19, 1833, Lemuel Scott m. Margaraet Permelia or Pamela McCorkle, 1805 - Nov. 11, 1853. Permelia McCorkle Scott was a daughter of Robert McCorkle, died 1828, and Robert's 2nd wife Margaret "Peggy" Morrison (McCorkle).

  1. 2. John Dickie Scott and Susan Caroline Williams. John Dickey or Dickie Scott was born circa 1802 and died 1878. [Aunt Katie Pearl McCorkle Fox's names John & Susan Scott less fully than other records do: Aunt Kate writes: John Scott, married Susan Williams.] John Dickey Scott was born 9 Jan. 1802 and married 3 July 1828, in Gibson Co., TN: Susan Carolina Williams (Susan Williams Scott b. 26 March 1810, died 26 May 1889, a daughter of Joseph Williams).

  1. 3William Scott, born 26 April 1813, died 14 August 1865; married (Feb. 28, 1843) Nancy Edwards Wellborn, born 1824Bdied 25 August 1872. William Scott lived in Hardeman County, Tennessee, near Saulsbury near Grand Junction.

  1. 4.James Scott married 1st Violet Roddy (the mother of his children) and married 2nd Margaret Scott.

  1. 5.Tirzah Scott married Robert Andrew Hope McCorkle, a son of Robert McCorkle & his 2nd wife Margaret "Peggy" Morrison; RAH McCorkle & wife Tirzah Scott & his McCorkle parents Robert & Margaret are all buried in the McCorkle Cemetery, Dyer County, Tennessee.N.B. Two Scott siblings (Tirzah Scott and Lemuel Scott) married two McCorkle siblings (Robert A.H. McCorkle and Margaret Permelia McCorkle).

II. The children of James Scott & Sarah Dickey Scott = Generation Two =
  1. 1. Lemuel Scott, born 2 Sept. 1804 - died 17 Sept. 1866; other records say Lemuel Scott was born on 2 Sept. 1801. On January 19, 1833, Lemuel Scott m. Margaraet Permelia or Pamela McCorkle, 1805 - Nov. 11, 1853. [1853 must have been a bad year; I note several family deaths that winter.] Permelia McCorkle Scott was a daughter of Robert McCorkle (died 1828) & his 2nd wife Margeret "Peggy" Morrison. Lemuel Scott & wife Permelia McCorkle (Scott) & her McCorkle parents Robert & Margaret are all buried in the McCorkle Cemetery, Dyer County, Tennessee. Margaret Permelia McCorkle Scott was born 14 June 1805 or 14 January 1805 [Aunt Katie Pearl McCorkle Fox's record as typed by Maury A. Huie reads January 14, 1805, I think.]. Permelia McCorkle Scott died November 11, 1853. [Some of these Scott descendants still live around Newbern-Yorkville, Tenn.
  2. Parents of Lemuel Scott: Sarah Dickey, b.1777, & James Scott, b.1777, supra. Parents of Margaret Permelia McCorkle (Scott): Robert McCorkle & Robert's 2nd wife Margaret Morrison McCorkle. Robert and Margaret Morrison McCorkle were each of Rowan Co., NC, then moved to the environs of Murfreesboro, TN, then removed to the Western District (Dyer Co).
  3. Children of Lemuel Scott & M. Permelia McCorkle = Generation III =
III.1.          John A. Scott, born Nov. 3, 1833; died July 12, 1854.
III.2.          William Leander Scott, born July 3, 1835; died November 22, 1885. Married: 1
st wife Mattie J. Cowan; 2nd wife Addie Fernandes [Fernandez?]. [I believe John Edwin McCorkle was named guardian for Leander Scott in the latter's last years; and that Leander had removed to middle or eastern Tennessee in his later years. I presume this Leander Scott, 1835-1885, needed a guardian because he became non compos mentis.]
III.3.        Robert Quincy Scott, born Jan. 18, 1837; died January (?) 5
th 1907. [The January is almost illegible as typed by Maury A. Huie.] Married: Sallie Owen on May 21, 1867. Sallie Owen (Scott) was born August 19, 1842 and died June 22, 1936.
III.4.        James J. Scott, born May 18[?50?]; died Sept. 2, 1853. [Year & month of birth illegible].
III.5.         David E. Scott, born May 3, 1845 - died September 1, 1853.
B If I read the death date of sibling James J. Scott correctly, these two children died within a day of each other in 1853.
III.6.         L.E. Scott
III.7.          Margaret E. Scott, born December 28, 1841 and died January 27, 1873.
BMargaret E. Scott is the youngest child listed of the union of Lemuel Scott & Margaret Permelia McCorkle (Scott)
III.8.          Sallie L. Scott (Rodgers) (Locke). Born April 22, 1838, died August 3, 1876. On April 22, 1858, she married _____ Rodgers. On October 18, 1866, after the Civil War, she married Richard “Dick
" Locke. [A ALocke Excursus" is appended to this document based on my observations at the environs of Thyatira Presbyterian Church in Rowan County, North Carolina. Clearly, the McCorkle folk were involved with the Locke folk at Thyatira Presbyterian Church in Rowan County, NC. And there's a MATTHEW LOCKE McCORKLE who is included in this book: Cyclopedia of Eminent and Representative Men of the Carolinas of the Nineteenth Century..., pub. 1892, v. 2 (North Carolina), p. 156-158. {20.9756 Cyc NCC v.2} B. 1817. Our Jehiel Morrison McCorkle, who called himself "JEM" McCorkle, and wife Betsy Smith McCorkle named a son Locke McCorkle. “Jem” & Betsy's son named Locke McCorkle was to die in the Civil War in the Battle of Atlanta.]

  2. do not really know where to place the following information, except to position it after ALEMUEL SCOTT married MARGARET PERMELIA McCORKLE@ -- Here, the reader trying to evaluate this material should know the provenance of the family record book from which I'm working in the year 2005: "Aunt Ora" Ora Alice McCorkle Huie (Mrs. Julius Adolphus "Dolph" Huie); "Aunt Kate" Ora's sister Katie Pearl McCorkle (Mrs. Ed Lee Fox); "Uncle Mutt" Maury A. Huie, 1895-1973, my father Ewing Huie's double 1st cousin because two McCorkle half-sisters (Ora McCorkle and Sophie McCorkle) married two Huie brothers (Dolph Huie and Howard Huie). -- Maury Huie and Ewing Huie were closer than most brothers, which neither had, for Ewing's brother "Baby Ralph" had died in infancy: They did not even divide up the inherited lands in Dyer and Gibson County until they knew death was ineluctably approaching. Death took Ewing in 1971 and Maury in 1973 less than two years later. It was then, in 1973, when we survivors realized we had come to see each other only at funerals that we decided to have an annual Huie-McCorkle reunion, holding our first, I think, in 1975. B The record book, upon the death of Maury Adolphus Huie in 1973, came into the hands of his younger son, Edward Campbell Huie, who died in 2001. While the book lay in Edward Huie's custody, a Scott relative who visited Ed & Drucilla Huie seeking Scott genealogical information added a handwritten page containing the following information, which follows with a few editorial additions. I seem to remember that some of the Scott descendants of Lemuel Scott & wife Margaret Permelia McCorkle became disaffected with their McCorkle relatives over a disputed inheritance; I just can't remember who, where, or in which century, so the disputed inheritance is best forgotten. Obviously, the Lemuel L. Scott immediately below is named after the above Lemuel Scott, 1804-1866, who married Margaret Permelia McCorkle (Scott).
  3. Children of Lemuel L. Scott and Lillian Burrow (Scott):
  4. William Leander Scott, born January 16, 1901 B died Nov. 1, 1945.
  5. William Leander Scott married Ella Bernice Smith (Scott). In Yorkville-Neboville, folks called her "Miss Ella Bernice." William Leander Scott begot two children, viz.,
      1. Scottmarried Peggy Baker, who died 2005; Peggy Baker Scott was a daughter of Raymond & Hazel Fisher Baker late of Yorkville.
      2. Scott

Children of Lemuel L. Scott and Mary E. Wimberly (Scott):
Wilma Daphine Scott (Featherston), born Sept. 6, 1905, married Fred Featherston. Wilma Scott Featherston had two children:
Ralph Featherston
    1. Featherston

______________________________________________________________________
The second child listed of James Scott & Sarah Dickey Scott, each born 1777, is John D. Scott:
  1. 2. John Dickie Scott and Susan Caroline Williams. John Dickey Scott was born circa 1802 and died 1878. [Aunt Katie Pearl McCorkle Fox's record names John & Susan Scott less fully than others: John Scott married Susan Williams.] John Dickey Scott was born 9 Jan. 1802 and married 3 July 1828, in Gibson Co., TN: Susan Carolina Williams (Susan Williams Scott b. 26 March 1810, died 26 May 1889, a daughter of Joseph Williams).
For example: One of John Dickie Scott & Susan Williams Scott's five children is listed below as "Generation III.4. John W. Scott who married Margaret Lake (Scott)."
Quaere: Did Sarah DICKEY Scott, born 1777, intend to name her son John Dickey Scott, not John Dickie? Should this be John Dickey Scott? I supplied the ff. genealogical information to the late Stuart Hoyle Purvines for his gargantuan red 1986 Purviance Family book and I may have spelled Dickey incorrectly for Stu. Back then, I listed the children of John Dickey Scott & Susan Caroline Williams as: James A. Scott, 31 Aug. 1842--28 Sept. 1890. Susan Scott, a Mrs. McClellan, 1843-1914; and John William Scott, 6 Dec. 1829-27 Jan. 1872, m. Margaret Ann Lake, 4 April 1833-15 Sept. 1910, a daughter of Justus Lake.]
Aunt Katie Pearl McCorkle
's book lists the children of John Dickey Scott in this order, but without this Roman-numeral numbering system:
  1. Children of Generation II.2. John Dickie Scott & Susan Caroline Williams = Generation III:

Child number II.3. listed supra as a child of Generation I. James Scott & Sarah Dickey Scott, each born 1777, is William Scott:
  1. 3William Scott was born 26 April 1813 and died 14 August 1865, just after the Civil War ended. [The surrender at Appomattox of General Lee's Army of Northern Viginia, of the Confederacy, was on April 9, 1865, but fighting continued. Later, Confederate Joe Johnston surrendered some 30,000 people at Goldsboro, North Carolina. A battle in Texas in June 1865, the Battle of Palmetto, is generally considered to be the last battle of the civil war and marked a Confederate victory.] William Scott married (Feb. 28, 1843) Nancy Edwards Wellborn (Scott), born 1824Bdied 25 August 1872. William Scott lived in Hardeman County, Tennessee, near Saulsbury near Grand Junction. William Scott lived in Hardeman County, Tennessee, near Saulsbury near Grand Junction. Buried in Scott private cemetery, Hardeman County, Tenn., which I'm told has come to be called the Scott-Jackson Cemetery by the Jackson descendants.
Generation III.= Children of William Scott & Nancy Edwards Wellborn Scott of Hardeman Co., Tenn.=:
III.1. Sally Ann Scott (Jackson), born 10 Dec. 1843, died May 13, 1913; married William Andrew Jackson on October 31, 1865, just after the end of the Civil War.
III.2. James Wellborn Scott, born Nov. 14, 1845 - died May 18, 1865, last year of the Civil War.
III.3. “Cattie” Catherine Lavinia Scott (Bowden), born Nov. 6, 1848 - died Oct. 10, 1875; married John Bowden.
III.4. Tennessee
"Tennie" Alice Scott (McCorkle), born Oct. 31, 1850 - died May 27, 1879. Tennie Scott married, on January 14, 1868, John Edwin McCorkle of Dyer County, Tenn. John E. McCorkle was a son of Edwin A. McCorkle & Jane Maxwell Thomas McCorkle; a paternal grandson of Robert McCorkle & Margaret Morrison McCorkle; and a maternal grandson of Elizabeth Purviance (Thomas) & William Thomas.
Tennie Scott McCorkle
's children [generation IV infra] lived in the Churchton area of eastern Dyer County, Tenn, viz., 1, Ora Alice McCorkle (Mrs. J. "Dolph"Huie); 2, Will McCorkle who m. Una Pace; 3, Glenn Roache McCorkle who m. Annie Heath of Milan; and 4, Katie Pearl McCorkle (late in life Mrs. Ed Lee Fox, his 2nd wife).
V.1. Ora Alice McCorkle m. Julius Adolphus
"Dolph" Huie. One child: VII. Maury Adolphus Huie, 1895-1973;
V.2. Will McCorkle m. Una Pace. Children: VI. Hazel, no issue; VI.. Hubert, no issue; VI. Nobel, no issue; VI. Una Dell McCorkle (Caver) (Smith), no issue; VI. Pat McCorkle, who had two living children; and VI.. Julia Dale McCorkle (Messer) (Montgomery)
After Tennie Scott McCorkle
's death, John Edwin McCorkle rode the train up to Eminence, Kentucky, to visit his nephew Winfield Purviance McCorkle, a son of Hiram R. A. McCorkle & Margaret Cowan McCorkle, a son who went to Kentucky to teach school and there married Mamie King. In the home of Winfield Purviance McCorkle's father-in-law Gideon King, founder of Eminence, Ky., was Gideon King's maternal Cotton 1st cousin: Mary Elizabeth Cotton. The two daughters of Gideon & Sophie King called Mary Elizabeth Cotton "May Toffie" and addressed her as such in correspondence. John Edwin McCorkle by 2nd wife Mary Elizabeth Cotton begot Sophie King McCorkle (Mrs. Howard Anderson Huie, my paternal grandmother), Ewing McCorkle who died aged 16 or 17 in 1900; and Errett Cotton McCorkle, 1888-1976.
It
's our Huie family tradition that Tennie Scott brought a pianoforte with her to Dyer County, Tennessee, for her marriage to John Edwin McCorkle. This old, regal musical instrument sits in the parlor of the John Edwin McCorkle home in Dyer County, lately owned by Edward Campbell Huie, deceased 2001.
B And no wonder McCorkle-Scott reunions used to be held in Dyer and Gibson counties, Tenn., around the dawn of the 20th century. For example, "Tennie" Scott (McCorkle) originally of Hardeman County, Tenn., was a niece of Tirzah Scott (Mrs. Robert A. H. McCorkle). And Tennie Scott's husband, John Edwin McCorkle, was a nephew of Tirzah Scott's husband, Robert Andrew Hope McCorkle.
                
III.V. Susan Cora Scott         
B Unfortunately, I don't know anything else about this sibling of Sally Ann Scott (Jackson), James Wellborn Scott, Catherine Lavinia Scott (Bowden), and Tennessee "Tennie" Alice Scott (McCorkle).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  5. 5. James Jackson
  6. 6. Sallie LaDora Jackson (O'Neal), born July 10, 1879, married Charles M. O'Neal: Sallie O'Neal had one child: Generation V. "Cousin" Anna May O'Neal, born May 1, 1913. [ I think Anna May O'Neal lived in or near Jackson, Madison Co., Tennessee; and I think she married a Mr. DeLoach rather late in life.]

IV.7. Frederick Stonewall Jackson, married Ina Pearl Gilchrist. Their children = Generation V.
1. Charles Jackson m. Myrtle _____

VI.5. Bessie Joyce Andre.
_______________________________________________________
Generation One was James Scott, born 1777, married Sarah Dickey (Scott), also born 1777.
  1. 4.James Scott, married 1st Violet Roddy (mother of his children) and 2nd Margaret Scott B Uncle Mutt, Maury A. Huie, called him "Jimps" Scott.

Scott Generation III = Children of the Generation II.4. James Scott who married 1
st Violet B. Roddy (the mother of his children) and 2nd Margaret Scott This James Scott who m. Violet B. Roddy lived in Dyer County, Tenn., but closer to Yorkville than to Newbern. He is my father Ewing Huie's great-grandfather. I have wondered if his wife Violet B. Roddy was kin to Civil War General Phillip K. Roddey because of the name, the times, and the proximity of his Alabama to her Tennessee. Confederate General Roddey was shrewder than my folks who remained and endured the privations of Reconstruction in the South, for he soon moved on up to New York City where he became a prominent mercantilist.
III.1. Martha Scott (McCorkle) m.
AA.J." Anderson Jehiel McCorkle, a Confederate veteran. Buried McCorkle Cemetery, Dyer Co., Tenn.
        Anderson Jehiel
"A J" McCorkle was a son of Edwin A. McCorkle & Jane Maxwell Thomas McCorkle, and a paternal grandson of Robert McCorkle & Robert's 2nd wife Margaret "Peggy" Morrison McCorkle, and a maternal grandson of William Thomas & Elizabeth Purviance (Thomas). AJ & Martha Scott McCorkle had one son: Generation IV. "John Tom@ McCorkle B who m. Della Smith [do I have her name right?] but had no issue. John Thomas McCorkle was killed at the Newbern Poplar Grove railroad crossing. I remember someone told me John Tom McCorkle was a bit deaf like his father and unfortunately wore that fateful day a hat with ear muffs.
        Anderson Jehiel McCorkle is known to have raised several of his 1
st wife's nieces & nephews, viz. Trimble children & Hundley grandchildren of James Trimble & Clementine Scott (Trimble) (infra). The Dyer County census records verify these nieces/nephews to have been in A J McCorkle's household, along with A J's deceased Scott wife's brother-in-law, James Trimble, James Trimble the widower of Clementine Scott (Trimble)..

III.2. Sarah Elizabeth Scott (Huie) , 1839-1893, gored by a bull on the farm.
BASade" Scott married Julius M. Huie, his 1st wife and infant daughter having died peri-childbirth and having been buried in the Cool Springs Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Gibson County. Sarah Scott Huie is buried McCorkle Cemetery, Dyer County, Tennessee; and in the 1980s, for preservation, I removed the old markers of Sade's grandparents James Scott & wife Sarah Dickey Scott, each born 1777, from the Yorkville Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery and placed them beside the graves of Julius M. & Sarah Elizabeth Scott Huie.
        Julius M. Huie was an emigrant from Rowan County, North Carolina, and a son of Benjamin Huie & Lavinia Cowan Huie of NC. Benjamin Huie is buried not in the Old Yorkville Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery where he had buried his teenaged son Cornelius Huie in a pine box, but in the Newbern Poplar Grove Cemetery, because at Benjamin Huie
's death he was living with his son by his 2nd wife Margaret Betts (Huie): Joseph G. Huie & wife Frances Franklin Huie ("Fannie Huie").
        
"Sade" Scott Huie was a twin to James Allen Huie, who later moved to Bastrop County, Texas. B How intertwined these Southern families became by intermarriage: "Sade" Scott Huie [my paternal Huie great-grandmother] was a 1st cousin to the 1st wife, Tennie Scott McCorkle, of John Edwin McCorkle, who was my paternal great-grandfather by his 2nd wife Mary Elizabeth Cotton McCorkle; I defy the reader to figure that out quickly.] Sad to say, Sarah E. Scott was gored by a bull. Consequently, my father, Sarah's grandson H. Ewing Huie, instilled in my sister Sophie and me a healthy respect for the Hereford bulls he kept on our farm.

Descendants of Sarah Elizabeth Scott Huie (
"Sade" Huie) are listed immediately below =
Generation IV = children of Generation III.2.
"Sade" Sarah Elizabeth Scott (Huie), 1839-1893, and Julius M. Huie.
  1. 1. ABettie" Violet B. Huie (Gregory) m. Ed W. Gregory, who had a dry goods and furniture store in Newbern. No issue. Buried Newbern city cemetery.

  1. 2. APhronie" or "Fronie" Sophronia Huie (Thompson). Buried Elbridge or Glass, Obion County, Tennessee, with Mr. Thompson. No issue. Aunt Phronie Huie married John Will Thompson late in her life. She was cared for in her old age by her niece & nephew, Generation V.1. Sarah Elisabeth "Beth" Huie & Generation V.2. Howard EWING Huie . Phronie Huie died in 1949 in the old Julius M. Huie home in which Ewing & Joyce Cope Huie and Aunt Beth Huie lived and in which Aunt Phronie Huie herself had been born.

  1. 3.James Huie. Died young. Named after James Scott, the father of "Sade" Sarah Elizabeth Scott (Huie), and after James Huie, the paternal grandfather of Julius M. Huie.

  1. 4."Dolph" Julius Adolphus Huie married his Scott second-cousin, Ora Alice McCorkle, a daughter of Tennesseee "Tennie" Scott McCorkle & John Edwin McCorkle. Dolph Huie's wife's mother (Tennie Scott McCorkle) and his own mother (Sarah Elizabeth "Sade" Scott) were first-cousins. Ora and Dolph Huie had one posthumous or near-posthumous child: Generation V. Maury Adolphus Huie, 1895-1973, who m. Nell Campbell of Florence, Alabama, whom Maury Huie met when he and Nell were students at Milligan College in upper eastern Tennessee. Nell died in 1965. Maury & Nell Campbell Huie had:
  2. Generation VI.1. Joe Huie who died aged 8 severely afflicted from birth. I know Bill was older than Edward, but I'm not certain where Joe fits in the birth order. Generation VI.2. Rev. "Bill" William Maury Huie, a Christian Church preacher, who married Iris Lathbury, deceased. Bill Huie died 2001 & is buried Morehead KY; Bill & Iris Huie's had a living daughter and a living son. Generation VI.3. Edward Campbell Huie, died also in 2001 but several months before his older brother Bill Huie died. Edward Huie is buried McCorkle Cemetery. Ed Huie, in Marines World War II, married Drucilla Garner; Ed & Drucy Huie's 3 children are living.
  3. 5.Benjamin Huie, a son of Sade Sarah Elizabeth Scott Huie, 1839-1893, & Julius M. Huie. Died young. Named after his Huie grandfather Benjamin Huie who had been born born circa 1798 probably in Cabarrus County, North Carolina B Aunt "Phronie" Sophronia Huie told Joyce Cope Huie, her nephew Ewing Huie's wife, that one of Phronie's brothers, either James or Benjamin Huie, died in the living room of the old Huie home on the Newbern-Yorkville Highway during surgery to correct a club-foot. The local doctor, Aunt Phronie maintained, neglected to tell Sarah Scott Huie & Julius Huie to keep the child from ingesting food or liquid before the administration of chloroform as anaesthesia.

  1. 4. Howard Anderson Huie, 1870-1935, a son of "Sade" Sarah Elizabeth Scott Huie, 1839-1893, & Julius M. Huie. Howard A. Huie married Sophie King McCorkle (Huie), a daughter of John Edwin McCorkle and his 2nd wife Mary Elizabeth Cotton of Botland near Bardstown, Nelson County, Kentucky. Howard & Sophie McCorkle Huie were Sophie & my (Marsha's) father Ewing Huie's parents. The mercantile records of Howard Huie's Huie & Ozier Hardware Co. in Newbern are in the archives of the University of Tennessee at Martin. Sophie McCorkle Huie died aged 32 in the old St. Joseph Hospital in Memphis of what was then diagnosed as a tubercular kidney, and left three small children. Sophie attended Bourbon College in Paris, Kentucky where I think she gave the valedictory address, then Georgia Roberson College in Henderson, Tenn., a precursor for females to Freed-Hardeman College.
  2. Sophie's mother Mary E. Cotton McCorkle's parents were John Cotton & Juliet Tong Cotton of Nelson County, Kentucky. Juliet Tong Cotton, a daughter of Joseph Ford Tong(e), is buried in the McCorkle Cemetery, Dyer County, having died while visiting her daughter Mary McCorkle in Dyer County. John Cotton, husband of Juliet Tong, is buried Mill Creek Cemetery, Botland near Bardstown, Nelson County, Kentucky.
  3. B Again, the intermingling of consanguinity: Sophie McCorkle Huie's half-sister Ora McCorkle (Huie) and Sophie married brothers: Julius Adolphus "Dolph" Huie & Howard A. Huie. Plus, Dolph Huie's mother Sarah Scott (Huie) was a 1st cousin to Dolph's wife Ora McCorkle (Huie)'s mother, Tennie Scott (McCorkle).
  4. Maury A. Huie wrote the following about his uncle Howard Anderson Huie as an addition to his mother Ora McCorkle Huie's and his aunt Katie Pearl McCorkle Fox's family records:
  5. "Howard Anderson Huie (Uncle Howard) lived in the original Huie home and took care of Grandpa Julius Huie and Aunt Fronie, Uncle Howard's sister. On October 8, 1913, he married Sophie King McCorkle. The wedding took place in the West room of the John E. McCorkle home with only a few members of the family present. Elder W.H. Price, a Church of Christ minister, performed the ceremony.
  6. “Uncle Howard was a successful farmer and one of the leading citizens of the community. He was a member of Lemalsmac Church of Christ and was an Elder of the Church. He was a member of the building committee and helped plan and erect the Lemalsamac building in 1917 that is standing today in 1964. He was President of the Bank of Yorkville.
  7. “The Bank of Yorkville was organized under his leadership, also the Yorkville Telephone Company, which furnished the phone service in the community and had connections with Newbern, Dyer, Mason Hall, and Trimble, Tenn.
  8. “He was instrumental in organizing the Churchton Blacksmith Company and the shop took care of the needs of the community for a number of years. Before he was 21 years old he had the Ozier & Huie Hardware Company in Newbern.
  9. “The three children of Howard and Sophie McCorkle Huie were Sarah Elisabeth Huie, born Sept. 14, 1904; Howard Ewing Huie, born July 6, 1907. Ralph Huie, born April 1, 1914, died June 14, 1916. Ralph died of colitis. Aunt Sophie died following surgery for the removal of a diseased kidney at St. Joseph's Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. Date of her death, April 30, 1915. Uncle Howard died January 3, 1935, following a stroke. The three are buried in McCorkle Cemetery near the West entrance.”
  10. * * * * * * * * * * * *
  11. following is written in the old family book, by his mother Ora McCorkle Huie, about Maury Adolphus Huie, 1895-1973:

IV.3. Lillian Violet Scott (King) m. James M. King, an undertaker in Newbern, Tenn.
Lillian Scott King long taught school in Newbern. No issue. Cousin Lillian was my last
"Cud'n. I remember it bothered Cud'n Lillian that her father had been a
"restoration movement" preacher of the Christian Church/ Church of Christ formed at Cane Ridge Meeting House, Bourbon County, Kentucky, circa 1894. After the formal schism between the Christian Church and the Church of Christ circa 1900, Cousin Lillian herself joined the Newbern First Christian Church though her brother Horace & his children chose the Church of Christ; Cousin Lillian King used to consult my father Ewing Huie for reassurance about her theological proclivities.
IV.4. Annie Lou Scott (Abbott) of Union City, Tenn.
Annie Lou Scott Abbott

V.1. Laverne Abbot (Howell) (Mrs. Red Howell);
V.2. Virginia Abbott (Burnett) (Mrs. D.C. Burnett), of Union City
V.3. Nancy Beth Abbott (Bratton) who married Jack Bratton on Dec. 14, 1941.

Generation V = Children of IV.2.above: children of Horace Hall Scott and Jessie Midyett (Scott):
V.1. Annie Maude Scott (Brown) married Edward Brown of Guntown, Mississippi. After Mr. Brown
's death she retired to Henderson, Tennessee, to be near her sister-in-law Lavonne Billingsley Scott, where her late brother Thomas Scott had preached. No issue. Annie Maude Scott Brown possessed RAH McCorkle & Tirzah Scott McCorkle's papers reflecting their Mormon-religious phase.

V.2. Thomas Elihu Scott II, Church of Christ preacher, married Lavonne Billingsly (Scott) on October 18, 1940. Died rather young of leukemia but had three children. He was in the Newbern, Tenn., public school with my mother who was born 1915, so I guess he was born circa 1915. Thomas begot three living children.

V.3. Janie Sue Scott (Tilghman) (Green). Taught elementary school in Yorkville, Tenn., for many years. Married 1
st in April 1941 Andrew Tilghman of Yorkville area, then 2nd Martin Green of Gibson County. Janie Sue Tilghman had two living children. one Generation VII grandson who died as a teenaged boy.
Janie Sue Scott's 1
st husband was Andrew Tilghman of the Yorkville community. This is from the 1887 GOODSPEED's History of Tennessee, Gibson County Biographical Sketches, about an earlier Andrew Tilghman, 1851-1932:
  1. Andrew J. Tilghman, a farmer of the Tenth District of Gibson County, Tenn., was born November 22, 1851, son of Stephen H. and Mary Tilghman. The father was born in South Carolina, and in 1832 came to Tennessee and settled in Gibson County. His occupation was farming and stock raising. He reared a family of thirteen children to maturity, and died in Gibson County in 1832 [sic. ?1932?]. His wife died in 1874. They were earnest and worthy members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Andrew J. Tilghman was born in North Carolina and came to Tennessee with his parents. He has always followed farming for a living, in which he has been quite successful, and now owns 178 acres of land in a high state of cultivation. In 1845 he was united in marriage to Miss Mahala Tyson, and seven children have blessed their union: S. W., Palmyra, Tyson E., Jack D., George, Adaline and Coriana (who died in 1858). Mr. Tilghman and family are members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and are highly respected in the community in which they reside.
Daughter of Generation II. James Scott and wife Violet B. Roddy = III.7. Margaret Scott (McCorkle)
III.7. Margaret Scott (McCorkle) married David Purviance McCorkle.
David Purviance McCorkle, who moved from Dyer to Obion County and sat in the Tenn. state legislature, was a son of Edwin A. McCorkle & Jane Maxwell Thomas McCorkle, and a paternal grandson of Robert McCorkle & wife Robert
's 2nd Margaret "Peggy" Morrison McCorkle, and a maternal grandson of William Thomas & Elizabeth Purviance (Thomas). We have their descendants listed in the McCorkle record book.

"Generation I" supra was James Scott & wife Sarah Dickey Scott, each born 1777. Their daughter Tirzah Scott (McCorkle) is listed immediately below as Generation II.5:
  1. 5.Tirzah Scott married "RAH" or Robert Andrew Hope McCorkle, a son of Robert McCorkle & his 2nd wife Margaret "Peggy" Morrison. RAH McCorkle & wife Tirzah Scott & his McCorkle parents Robert & Margaret are all buried in the McCorkle Cemetery, Dyer County, Tennessee. Now, since 1984, the markers for Tirzah Scott's parents stand there, too. RAH McCorkle's mother in her letters called RAH “Robert.”
Generation III. = Children of II.5 Tirzah Scott & Robert Andrew Hope McCorkle =
  1. 1. A.A. McCorkle[Addison?B check the tombstones in the McCorkle Cemetery.]

  1. 2. "J.S." or James Scott McCorkle, M.D., married Lizzie Obedience Clements of Weakley County. They lived in Newbern. BLizzie's diary of 1900-01 is on the Dyer County Tenn. Rootsweb site courtesy of his descendants Natalie Cockroft Ragon of Jackson, Tenn., Natalie's husband James Ragon, and Ms. Jo Vail of Memphis; and of course kudos go to Natalie Huntley who manages the Dyer County website so admirably from her home in Utah....
  2. Children of J.S. & Lizzie McCorkle = Generation IV =
  3. 1. Lulu McCorkle (Cockroft) m. S. L. Cockroft [doesn't Lizzie O.C. McCorkle's Newbern diary reveal that this daughter moved to Sherman, Texas, circa 1900? Do I have that wrong?]
    1. B. There's a Lula or Lulu McCorkle, daughter of Hiram R. A. McCorkle, buried in the McCorkle Cemetery; a Lula McCorkle who really was the young wife of Johnny Woods, but Uncle Hiram McCorkle despised his son-in-law and refused to place his surname on his daughter's marker. Uncle Hiram said Johnny Woods was a drunkard, but I suspect the root of the antipathy lies in the differing Civil War allegiances of Uncle Hiram and Johnny Woods' father. [The older I get, the more I digress.] Anyway, this Lulu McCorkle Cockroft, a granddaughter of Robert A.H. McCorkle, is to be distinguished from RAH McCorkle's nephew Hiram R.A. McCorkle's daughter Lula McCorkle (Woods).
  4. Children of Lula McCorkle Cockroft & S.L. Cockroft:
  5. 1. Cicero Cockroft

  10. 5. Robert Cockroft
  11. 6. William Cockroft [?] [married Thelma _____?] B This is literally what my "Uncle Mutt" Maury A. Huie has typed, but it makes no sense to me: AWm. Thelma."
  12. 7. Maurine Cockroft
  13. 2. Mattie McCorkle (Blanks) m. George Blanks
  14. 1. Iola Mai Blanks (Bryan) m. _____ Bryan
  15. 2. Sadie - Maurine m. Schroder
  16. is literally what my "Uncle Mutt" Maury A. Huie has typed, but it makes no sense to me:
  17. ASadie - 6 - Maurine ....... Schroder"
  18. Quaere: Were Sadie & Maurine two separate people?
  19. 3. Willie McCorkle (Rodgers) m. Albert Rodgers
  20. 1. Ludith Rodgers
  21. 2. Mary Rodgers (Summers) m. Dr. Summers
  22. 3. Margaret Rodgers (Slaughter) m. Jewel Slaughter
  23. 4. Noel Rodgers
  24. 4. Iola McCorkle (Simmons) m. Frank Simmons
  25. 5. Sallie McCorkle (Reaves) m. Edgar Reaves or Edgar Reeves. Uncle Mutt spelled the surname two different ways. The second time he wrote "Edgar Reeves of Texas."
  26. Gladys Reeves or Reaves, a child of Sallie McCorkle Reeves
  27. The ff. is my pure speculation about the name of Reeves or Reaves: ALizzy" Elizabeth Jane McCorkle, a daughter of Edwin A. McCorkle & Jane Maxwell Thomas McCorkle, married Wyatt Reeves & moved to Gadsden near Humboldt in Gibson County, Tenn. [One of Lizzy Reeves' daughters Lodusca Reeves m. John Priestley; Lizzie's daughters' other married surnames became Brummitt; Casey; & Jones. Since these folks all seemed to have known and married and re-married their particular lines, I do wonder if Edgar Reeves who married Sallie McCorkle was kin to the Lizzie Jane McCorkle Reeves people .....]

[Children of II.5. Tirzah Scott (McCorkle) and husband RAH McCorkle = James Scott McCorkle, M.D, Sarah E. McCorkle Algea, R.E. McCorkle, Sue L. McCorkle McNail, Joe S. McCorkle; William Leander McCorkle:
  1. 3. Sarah E. McCorkle (Algea) m. Jonathan Algea. [I think they are buried in the Poplar Grove Cemetery just east of Newbern; but if not, try the McCorkle Cemetery....]
  2. Children of Sarah E. McCorkle Algea =
  3. IV. 1. Fannie Agnes Algea (Mrs. James A. Wharey) -- this must be how we are kin to the late V. John Wharey of Yorkville.
  4. IV.2. Carrie Algea, a daughter of Sarah E. McCorkle Algea.

  1. 4.R.E. McCorkle -- I know nothing about this child of RAH & Tirzah Scott McCorkle.

  1. 5. Sue L. McCorkle (McNail) m. ABob" Robert McNail. B Sue McCorkle (McNail)'s father, RAH McCorkle's, proud letter after the Civil War tells his sister Elmira McCorkle Roach, "You will excuse me if I bought Sue a piana."
  2. L. McCorkle McNail's children were IV.1.Robert Ed McNail; IV.2. Will E. McNail who m. Alice Casey (McNail); and IV.3.Thomas Addison McNail who m. Kitty Smith (McNail).
  3. Children of IV.2. Will E. McNail, who died Aug. 25, 1934, in Detroit, Michigan, and wife Alice Casey (McNail): V.1. Claudia McNail; V.2. Robbie McNail, died young; V.3. Maurice Montelle McNail, who died some time after 1984, the year I located and spoke with him on the telephone to hear that his family records had been stolen along with all his household effects in Detroit after the 1960s riots up there; and V.4. Clairine McNail, who died Aug. 4, 1944, in Detroit. B Around the dawn of the 20th century there was some sort of boundary-line violence on the Gibson County side of the farm where some or one of the McNails lived. Somebody killed someone, but I cannot remember any details; and I may even have the wrong family in mind.

  1. 6. "Joe" Joseph Smith McCorkle m. Mollie Frazier (McCorkle).
  2. Lived Yorkville. B Note the Mormon name, as with Joe's sibling Parley Pratt McCorkle. Children of Joe & Mollie McCorkle, who lived in the middle of Yorkville, on the north side of the Yorkville-Dyer road in a home later inhabited by Virgil & Sallie Roberts = Generation IV below:
IV.1. Eulalia McCorkle (Karnes) married AMose" T. Moses Karnes. Eulalia McCorkle Karnes died May 18, 1922. Some of this Karnes family were longtime funeral-home owners in Gibson County. In fact it was "cousin" T.C. Karnes, son of Blaine Karnes, who came out to the old Yorkville C.P. cemetery in 1984 and told me it would be futile to try to exhume the bodies of James & Sarah Scott Dickey (each born 1777) before moving their tombstones over for preservation the McCorkle Cemetery in Dyer County. It was bad timing, for soon after we managed to huff and puff and move the stones westward across the county line, the late Congressman Ed Jones of Yorkville managed to get funds for restoring the old Yorkville C.P. Cemetery.
  1. On the subject of ruined cemeteries, I'm afraid there aren't many people left who know there is an abandoned burying ground used by African-Americans situated by the main road, if it can be called a main road, from Yorkville to Neboville, on the right-hand side of the road very soon after passing the Yorkville School on the way to Nebo.
  2. Children of Eulalia McCorkle (Karnes ) & Mose Karnes:
    1. 1. Joseph Allen Karnes, dentist, who m. Clara Bradley (Karnes).
    2. 2. Ruth Karnes - Aunt Katie Pearl McCorkle's record reads: >died.'
    3. 3.Blaine Karnes, mortician of Gibson County, who m. ABitsy" Bogle (Karnes). I knew Blaine's late son, T.C. Karnes, also a mortician, but no other children.
    4. 4.Mary Karnes (Oates) m. John Oates of Arkansas. Aunt Katie Pearl McCorkle's record says "teacher" by Mary Karnes Oates.
    5. 5.C.A. Karnes or [? O? A. Karnes], salesman
    6. 6.Cecil Karnes, mortician

V.1. Robert Frazier McCorkle
V.2. Mary Frances McCorkle (her child is listed as V. Robert J.
“a jeweler and dairy man at Campbell, Missouri.
Until the 1970s, the only way across the Mississippi River to Missouri was by ferry. The automobile bridges of my childhood lay only at Memphis & Cairo, Illinois (and of course up at St. Louis north of Cairo and down in New Orleans south of Memphis). Cairo, Illinois, is just about the northernmost limit of any vestige of a Southern accent. For many years I wondered why. A few years ago, in my 50s, the light dawned: cotton and slavery did not exist above a certain point in the Missouri Boot-heel and Southern Illinois. So, back then, no African dialect altered the northern European accent of English spoken north of Cairo.

IV.5. Allen McCorkle, died young.

Another son of RAH McCorkle & Generation II. Tirzah Scott McCorkle = P.P. McCorkle:
  1. 7.Parley Pratt McCorkle B another Mormon name, but I know that RAH McCorkle later abjured that religion: It was he, RAH McCorkle, who named the new Lemalsamac Christian Church in eastern Dyer County and was a charter member

  1. 8.M.P.Presumably this child of Tirzah Scott (McCorkle) is buried in the McCorkle Cemetery. (?)

  1. 9.William Leander A. McCorkle, married Alice Wells (McCorkle). One child, a daughter, Wm. Leander A. & Alice Wells McCorkle: IV. 1. Eudora Agnes McCorkle (Robertson) (Mrs. Charles Robertson); they are all buried in the McCorkle Cemetery; I think Euroda A. McCorkle Robertson died a young married woman; I know she was a friend and contemporary of my paternal grandmother Sophie King McCorkle Huie.

  2. Dickey ancestors of our Sarah Dickey Scott : Two Conflicting Views
Here I present two opposing views about the Dickey ancestors of our Sarah Dickey Scott who was born in 1777 and married James Scott, also born in 1777, the two who are highlighted in this document and listed supra as Generation One.
        View One came from Stuart Hoyle Purvines based on genealogical material I sent him for his massive red book on the PURVIANCE FAMILY. The late Stuart Purvines believed he located our Sarah Dickey in Rowan County, N.C., and Stuart Purvines
' view became my view until I recently communicated with James Ragon of Jackson, Tennessee, husband of a descendant of Tirzah Scott (McCorkle) & RAH McCorkle through James Scott McCorkle, M.D., of Newbern. James Ragon presents View Two a bit further below.

View One: families Purviance and Dickey
  1. Generation A (Europe).
        Jon de Purviance, flourished circa 1600-1610 in Royan, France, now in France
's Sainlonge District; died ca. 1630. His grandson Jacques Purviance fled France for Ireland on or after 22 October 1685, after King Louis XIV's revocation of the Edict of Nantes, which had allowed religious toleration of French Protestants. A great-grandson of Jon de PurVaiance, John Purviance, migrated to the American colonies circa 1740. This great-grandson John's brother Samuel Purviance remained in land near Ulster Province, Ireland, but Samuel's sons were to move to the American colonies in the 1750s.
  1. Generation B (Europe). Jacques de PurVaiance, France.
  2. Generation C (Europe). Jacques de PurVaiance, France to Ireland.
A brother of Lewis Purvines, this Jacques fled France 22 October 1685, and died in Ireland.
  1. Generation D (Europe). John Purviance, who died in Ireland, presumably County Donegal in the northwest of Northern Ireland adjacent to Ulster Province. This John Purviance had a brother named Samuel Purviance (This brother, Samuel Purviance, was at one time in Alloway's Creek, New Jersey. It is unknown whether Samuel Purviance was ever in Ireland; he may have gone directly from France to the Americas).
C        Generation E (Europe) now becomes Generation I in the Americas. This Generation E includes Generation I: I (1) David Purviance, born County Donegal, became an immigrant to America and died in Pennsylvania in 1743. I (2) Samuel Purviance
I (3) John Purviance, born County Donegal in NW Ireland in 1712. John married, 1
st, in Ireland Margaret McKnight, and, 2nd, in Lancaster County, PA, Janet _____ Purviance. This John Purviance died circa 1749.                 
        More on Generation I (3): John Purviance m. (1
st) Margaret McKnight and married (2nd) Janet ___ PURVIANCE

Generation II. Nancy PURVIANCE (b. PA) m. in PA John DICKEY. This John Dickey, who died circa 1779, was a silversmith who emigrated from PA to NC as an early immigrant to the Salisbury, Rowan Co., NC, area. John Dickey
's 2nd wife was a Jane or Jeanne Dickey. At least some of John Dickey's children are listed as Gen. III immediately below. John Dickey's widow Jane Dickey (2nd wife) placed a bond of 6,000 pounds sterling in the Rowan Co., NC, Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions on 12 Feb. 1780, to become administratrix of her husband's estate, with Michael Troy, Esq. In about 3 months, on May 4, 1780, this same Michael Troy was appointed guardian of the minor child Sarah Dickey (?Scott?).
Children of John Dickey and 1
st wife Nancy Purviance = Generation III immediately below:
Generation III (1) Rebecca Dickey: her guardian appointed in Rowan Co., NC, court was James Purviance;
Gen. III (2) Ebeneezer Dickey (his guardian was Joshua Nellson appointed Nov. 2, 1779, in Rowan Co., NC., court records);
Gen. III (3) Moses Dickey (guardian was a Mr. Lowrance or Lorance, who posted a 100-pound bond to the court). Rowan Co., NC, court records say Moses Dickey was of lawful age to choose in 1785, and chose officially on May 4, 1785, in court, John Lorance as his guardian; and
Gen. III (4) Sarah Dickey (Mrs. James Scott, under View One) of Stuart Purvines (Sarah
's guardian was Michael Troy). If this is our Sarah Dickey, this Sarah's husband James Scott was born 20 Aug. 1777 in PA and died 1856 in Yorkville-Churchton area, Dyer-Gibson Counties, TN. Sarah Dickey Scott was, under this View One, born in Rowan County, NC, on 30 Oct. 1777; Michael Troy was appointed Sarah Dickey's guardian, Sarah being listed as an orphan of John Dickey, deceased, in the May 4, 1780, minutes of the Court of Please and Quarter Sessions, Rowan Co., NC. Sarah Dickey Scott d. in Dyer-Gibson Counties, TN.
More on Generation III, Sarah Dickey (b. 30 Oct. 1777 in NC as the daughter of John Dickey and Nancy Purviance Dickey). James Ragon under View Two, infra, has seen something to indicate this Sarah Dickey died unmarried. But under View One this Sarah Dickey married James Scott (b. 20 Aug. 1777 in PA, d. 1856 near the Dyer-Gibson County line, Tenn.). Whoever Sarah's parents, one Sarah Dickey Scott and James Scott moved from NC to SC to Alabama, then to West Tennessee, according to Goodspeed's History of Tennessee (Gibson County biographies).

VIEW TWO of the DICKEY ANCESTRY of SARAH DICKEY SCOTT, born 1777:
James Ragon of Jackson, Tennessee, in 2005, names George Dickey, born 1664 in Northern Ireland, as the correct DICKEY ancestor. James Ragon, husband of Natalie Cockroft Ragon, has this to say about View Two:
“The parents, siblings and ancestors of Sarah Dickey Scott are based on the supposition that:
1)        She is not the Sarah Dickey for whom Michael Troy was appointed guardian and James Purviance was appointed guardian of her sister, Rebecca Dickey, daughters of John Dickey, deceased., in Rowan Co., NC, on 4 May 1780; that Sarah Dickey, the daughter of said John and Jean Potts Dickey, evidently died 12 June 1829 as a single person in Salisbury, NC, according to the "Notes on the Troy Family" by Daniel Watts Troy, which notes state:
                [1] Tombstone Inscription at Salisbury, North Carolina:
                 'Sacred may this marble long remain,
                the just tribute of a sister's affection
                to the memory of Sarah Dickey,
                daughter of Jane Troy by a former marriage with John Dickey,
                who departed this life June 13 1829, aged --- years:

                [2] Also, "Notes On the Troy Family" include this excerpt
                "Robert Potts, of Paxtang, PA, d. October 1769, leaving a wife Sarah
                 (Biddle) and children:
                1  Rachel m. Michael Troy of Sunbury.
                2. Peggy m. Alexander Porter, farmer.
                3. Jean m. John Dickey, blacksmith.
                4. Ann
                He leaves a legacy to his sister, Jean Potts"

2)         Sarah Dickey is the daughter of John and Sarah Robinson Dickey of York Co., SC.

This scenario is an attempt to correlate the relationships of the various DickeyScott families of Dyer, Gibson and , Obion counties ofTennessee.”

I
'm not sure whether the following people are siblings of our Sarah Dickey Scott (Mrs. James Scott). {?} We shall have to wait for James Ragon to explain exactly who he thinks our Sarah Dickey Scott's siblings were. The following names come entirely from James Ragon, not my research or sources:
  1. Sibling? David DICKEY b: 1770 in York County, South Carolina, and died 1840 in Gibson Co., Tennessee; married Eleanor Dickey, who was born Dec 1775 in York District, South Carolina.

The 2nd wife of David DICKEY was Anna NELSON, born circa Abt. 1812. Married 23 Mar 1827 in Gibson County, Tennessee; and she died in Johnson County, Arkansas. B or was the 1st wife, Eleanor Dickey the sibling?

        LOCKE Excursus        This is included because Sallie L. Scott, above, married (2
nd marriage) Richard “Dick” Locke:        I've always assumed that Dick Locke was a kinsman of the Revolutionary War North Carolina militia colonel Francis Locke and/or Brigadier General Matthew Locke; but no one has ever indicated that to me; it's just that the names, times, and places jibe (so many of our folks trekked from Rowan County, North Carolina, to the Newbern-Yorkville area of Dyer County & Gibson County, Tennessee...).
I include here a short biography on Colonel Francis Locke of North Carolina, born circa 1722 and died 1796, because I know many Gibson-countians and Dyer-countians descend from men who fought in the Revolutionary War in North Carolina, and some in the Battle of King
's Mountain in South Carolina. For example, I know my father Ewing Huie's McCorkle ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, and I know my mother Joyce Cope Huie's Cop [the French spelling] / Kob [the German Pfalz Rheinland spelling] / Cope [the anglicized spelling] and Ratz ancestors fought against the British in the Revolutionary war. A North Carolina historical marker notes that Colonel Francis Locke routed the Tories at the Battle of Ramsour's Mill on June 20, 1780, at what is now the intersection of NC 150 and SR1728 (Barringer Road).Colonel Francis Locke's death & burial are noted just by Thyatira near Mill Bridge near Salisbury, Rowan Co., NC. Thyatira Presbyterian Church is where Samuel Eusebius McCorkle, Doctor of Divinity, long preached. [Samuel Eusebius McCorkle. was a brother to Robert McCorkle, who died 1828 and was the first person buried in the Dyer County, Tennessee, McCorkle Cemetery. It may be that the 2nd grave there is that of Mrs. Robert McCorkle's brother: William Morrison, born 1767 and aged a few months past 70 years at his death in Dyer County in 1837 William Hays Morrison (as he is listed by his descendants but not on his tombstone which stands beside the tombstone of his sister Margaret Morrison McCorkle), and Margaret Morrison McCorkle were children of Andrew Morrison, who married Elizabeth Sloan (Morrison). Andrew Morrison's father was another William Morrison, who called himself the “first inhabitor” of an area in the Piedmont of N C near Rowan and Iredell Counties and to whom a N C highway marker is dedicated. Also, these Morrisons had some connection with founding Davidson College in Davidson, NC.
Regarding General MATTHEW LOCKE, the following is quoted verbatim from the Biographical Dictionary of the United States Congress:
ALOCKE, Matthew, (uncle of Francis Locke, and great-great-great-grandfather of Effiegene (Locke) Wingo), a Representative from North Carolina; born in the north of Ireland in 1730; immigrated to the United States and located in Rowan County, N.C.; engaged in transportation by wagon; treasury commissioner of the colony of North Carolina in 1771; elected a member of the safety committee of Rowan County on August 8, 1774, and of the committee of secrecy, intelligence, and observation of Rowan County on September 23, 1774; member of the Provincial Congress at Hillsboro, N.C., and Johnston Court House in 1775; served as paymaster of troops in the Salisbury District in 1775; member of the Colonial Congress at Halifax in 1776; delegate to the State constitutional convention in 1776; member of the State house of commons 1777-1781; brigadier general of North Carolina troops during the Revolutionary War; served in the State senate in 1781 and 1782; again a member of the State house of commons 1783-1792; delegate to the State constitutional convention in 1789 called to ratify the Federal Constitution and voted against ratification; elected to the Third Congress and reelected as a Republican to the Fourth and Fifth Congresses (March 4, 1793-March 3, 1799); unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1798 to the Sixth Congress; engaged as a planter and was an extensive landowner; died in Salisbury, Rowan County, N.C., September 7, 1801; interment in the Thyatira Churchyard, near Salisbury, N.C.”
        More on the question of who was Richard
"Dick" Locke of Newbern-Yorkville who married a Scott woman? John Lock, deceased, and Francis Lock as administrator seeking bond are named in 1742 regarding an estate in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Also, Elizabeth Lock gave bond as widow of John Lock; she later married John Brandon. [The 2nd wife of Alexander McCorkle, who died in 1800 in Rowan Co., NC, was Rebecca Brandon.] The Locke people removed from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. See Rev. Brent Holcomb, Marriages of Rowan Co., NC, 1753-1868The children of John Lock included: Francis Locke, circa 1722-circa 1796; John Locke, born circa 1728; George, b. ca. 1729; Matthew Locke, b. ca. 1730; Margaret Locke, b. ca. 1731; and Elizabeth Locke, b. ca. 1742.
        Back to Francis Locke who died in 1796 and whose grave site is controversial: Concord, NC, or Thyatira Presbyterian Church Cemetery? A marker for his grave is at Thyatira Presbyterian Church Cemetery His son Francis Locke, Jr., provided in his will for this marker; and executors for Jr.'s estate were John SCOTT and John Giles --At Thyatira Presbyterian Church Cemetery, near Salisbury, Rowan Co., NC, where lie our Alexander McCorkle & his two wives, Nancy
"Agness" Montgomery McCorkle and Rebecca Brandon McCorkle, a marker is inscribed: "Col. Francis Locke, N. C. Mil. Rev. War." However, John P. Gibson of Concord, NC, a great-grandson of Locke, stated, "The burial was in the Carriker Springs section nine miles from Concord on the Salisbury Road and no one seems able to locate the grave."
        The following is from Goodspeed
's History of Tennessee, 1887 Gibson County Biographical Section: ELIZABETH H. LOCK (Mrs. Dr. B.W. Clement) of GIBSON COUNTY, TENN., died May 30, 1851
“Dr. B. W. Clement (deceased) was born in North Carolina, on the 12th of November, 1813, son of William Clement. Dr. Clement was reared a farmer, and received a liberal education. In 1843 he married Elizabeth H. Lock, of Gibson County, who died May
30, 1851, leaving one daughter - America. Soon after the death of his wife, Dr. Clement began studying medicine, and attended lectures at a medical college at Memphis, Tenn., and graduated in the spring of 1853, attending the sessions of 1851, 1852 and 1853. He soon after located at Mason's Grove, in Crockett County, but two years later came to Humboldt, and soon acquired a large and paying practice. He also superintended a farm near town, and was a very successful practitioner. He was a Democrat and Mason. and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. His second marriage occurred December 22, 1858, to Catherine Matthews. She was born in Davidson County, in June, 1834, and is a daughter of Rev. A. Matthews, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church. To Dr. and Mrs. Clement were born four sons: William A., Benjamin Isham, Andrew E. and George E. (deceased). Dr. Clement died November 7, 1881. Mrs. Clement lives on the home farm, which is worked by her son, William A. She is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. ”
And the following is in Goodspeeds History of Tennessee, Gibson County 1887:
Thomas D. Locke is a North Carolinian, born in 1829, son of George and Fannie E. Locke, who were also North Carolinians, and came to Tennessee in 1830, bringing our subject with them. George Locke was a farmer and merchant and held the magistrate's office in Gibson County for many years. He and wife were earnest members of the Presbyterian Church, and he was an elder in the same and died in Gibson County in January, 1842. Shortly after his death his widow's mind became impaired, and in company with our subject, who was then but twelve years of age, traveled over the country for three years, and walked from Richmond, Va., to Texas. At the end of that time she was brought home, and with proper care her mind was restored. She departed this life in 1871. The most of Thomas D.'s early life was spent on a farm. He was married in 1854, but lived with his mother until her death. His wife, who was formerly Mollie White, was born in Gibson County in 1836, daughter of Crawford E. and Elizabeth White. To Mr. and Mrs. Locke were born two children. Mrs. Locke died in 1857, and in 1860 he married Mrs. Susan E. (Rogers) McCrary, daughter of Jonathan and Frances Rogers, and by her became the father of three children. All of his children are dead, save two. During the war Mr. Locke was with Bragg's army about eighteen months. He was appointed depot agent at Rutherford and still retains the position. He sold goods in Yorkville and Rutherford before the war, and now owns 200 acres of well improved land. He is a Mason and a stanch Democrat, and he and wife are members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

Scott Slaves and Freed-Men and -Women: Samuel Scott, George Scott, Nelson Scott.
There were Scott slaves in the Dyer-Gibson County area. An old McCorkle Bros. ledger book kept by John Edwin McCorkle beginning after the Civil War, in 1867, contains an 1867 entry for
ASam. Scott (colored)" with some of Mr. Scott's purchases charged to Anderson Jehiel McCorkle (whose 1st wife was née Scott, supra). And an 1870 entry charges to A.J. McCorkle purchases made by George Scott . A late entry to the same ledger book is appended in a new handwriting, in I suspect the handwriting of Bill Huie: "May 1932: Uncle Nellie Scott died on the Huie farm after a long illness." Nellie Scott [Nelson Scott] lived with his wife "Mammy Riah" Moriah Scott on the east side of the Julius M. Huie farm on the Gibson County side, later the Howard A. Huie farm, then Ewing Huie's farm. Nellie & Moriah Scott's descendant "Aunt Mary" was part of my childhood in the 1950s; and "Aunt Mary" raised a granddaughter, Bea, who married John Shelton. Bea may have been one of the world's longest cancer survivors thanks to the aggressive treatment of a Dr. Brauns in Memphis. John Shelton as a widower married Earline, who survived John & lives in 2005 in Newbern. When John Shelton's first wife Bea was in the hospital in Memphis, John listed my mother Joyce Cope Huie as their "next of kin." There's just no way these complex relationships could ever be explained to non-southerners who weren't raised with the dreadfully peculiar institution of slavery and its aftereffects. I presume all or most of these African-American "kinspeople" were interred in the McCorkle Cemetery in Dyer County.
The 1932 entry, above, added to the old 1867 ledger of McCorkle Bros. in a childish hand lists people of color in the area:
Bubba Scott; Snook Sanders; Ralph Atkins
B I remember an Ed Atkins, probably son of Ralph(?); Essey Scott; Rexey Lee Overall; James Sharp; James Aaron Shockley;
N.P. Overall.
