Topsy Turvy Cake ...1925

One of the great things about going to estate sales, yard sales and library book sales, is finding antique books and magazines. Two recent purchases were copies of American Cookery magazine, March and April 1925. I'll take a slight break from posting genealogy information, and share this recipe. This doesn't appear to be a Topsy Turvy Cake as today's version-where every layer is crooked, but instead  appears to be more like a sponge cake. Might have to try this - let me know if you try it :)

Topsy Turvy Cake


"Into a well-buttered frying pan put one cup of brown sugar, packing it well and evenly all over the bottom.
On this spread one cup of canned pineapple, or cherries, strawberries, apple sauce , ect.  Sprinkle with chopped walnuts, and pour over the batter: Beat the yolks of two eggs, add one cup of sugar, one cup of flour, sifted with a pinch of salt, and one teaspoon of baking powder, thinning out with a quarter cup of water.
Add any desired flavoring, and fold in the beaten whites of the two eggs. Bake like an ordinary sponge cake. Turn out and serve warm or cold with whipped cream over it."

Remembering Cincinatus C. Slay


photo  by Larry Van Horn
Birth:
May 18, 1843
Copiah County, Mississippi
Death: Dec. 31, 1864
near Iuka, Tishomingo County, Mississippi
Cincinatus was the son of Alexander Slay and Elizabeth McLean. Sibling to: Martha, Nathan Wesley (Capt.) Alexander Jr., Mary, Elizabeth, Norvell, Elijah (Capt.) Corydon, Leonidus, Alonzo Duncan, and twin sisters, Cornelia and Ophelia. All of his brothers served in the Civil War.

Cincinatus served as a Corporal in the CSA-Army of TN, 6th MS Infantry Co. F, known as the Crystal Springs Guards.

Originally, it was assumed by viewing his tombstone inscription, that he died during the Battle of Iuka, and there was a question on the correct date. However, a Slay family bible indicates the following;

Family bible records states "killed by the cars near Iuka"
As it was passed down through the family, Cincinatus and another man had survived the recent Battle of Nashville (December 15-16, 1864). (This would have been part of Loring's Division). After their defeat the Rebels walked from Nashville to near Tupelo. Here was an opportunity to ride a train rather than walk. The wounded and sick were laid on flat cars. Cincinatus Slay and another man, being well, put a board between two flat cars since there was no other place for them. At some time after the train cars began rolling the board collapsed and he was crushed by the train.


Thanks very much to Tim Burgess for his bible information and settling a question on when and where Cincinatus died. May he rest in peace.

Honoring a 5th Great Grandfather and Grandmother...Jesse and Margrette Neville

Neville Cemetery, Walhalla, South Carolina


NEVILLE FAMILY CEMETERY, Walhalla, Oconee County, South Carolina

CEMETERY LOCATION:
------------------

Find intersection of Highways 28 & 183 in downtown Walhalla. 
Drive 2.1 miles NW on Highway 28. 
Cemetery is located on a hill, on the left side of the road. 
Across the street from the Rocky Knoll Baptist Church.

Latitude N 34 46.385 x Longitude W 83 05.742

CHURCH/CEMETERY HISTORY:
------------------------

This pioneer family cemetery is located on a hill, which was typical for this time period.  It is speculated that the land was probably owned by Jesse & Margarette Neville and that Jesse started the cemetery  when Margarette died in 1838.  Over the years, the City has used it as a Pauper's Field.  Walhalla residents have also used it as a free-grave community cemetery.  If relatives of the deceased could find a burial spot in the cemetery, this is where the Funeral Home dug the grave without asking anyone's permission.  At some point in time, the City probably took the land for non-payment of taxes, lost their records and forgot what they did.  As of Dec-2002, the cemetery is full.

Gilbert Town: Its Place in North Carolina and Revolutionary War History


William Gilbert, of Scotch-Irish (Ulster-Scot) heritage, came to America and settled first in Philadelphia, where he met and married Sarah McCanless, who was born there in 1737. They traveled to Charleston, South Carolina, from Philadelphia and then came to Old Tryon County.
In 1777 and 1778, he was assessor of taxes and, in 1778, collector of taxes. Mr. Gilbert held the office of justice of the peace in Old Tryon County, taking his seat in July, 1778. In 1779, he represented Tryon in the North Carolina House of Commons.
On February 8th, 1779, he was forced to resign his commission as justice of the peace on the charge of duplicating his vouchers as commissary of militia of Tryon County. His guilt or innocence can never be known. Despite the charge, when Rutherford County was formed from Old Tryon, Gilbert represented the new county in the North Carolina House of Commons. He was selected in 1779, 1780, 1782, and 1783.
Gilbert was appointed justice of the peace for Rutherford County in 1781. At the October, 1781, term of the Rutherford County Court, he was chosen chairman of the court. The court vindicated him of the legislative charge of duplicating his vouchers by an order in October 1781, reading "On motion of William Gilbert, Esq., and testimony produced to the satisfaction of the court, it is ordered that the opinion of the court be entered on the records, to-wit: It is the opinion of the court that the said William Gilbert is not guilty of the charge laid against to the General Assembly, and we do certify that the said William Gilbert never plundered, nor was guilty of plundering, to our knowledge."
Gilbert was charged with treason, because Ferguson used the Gilbert home as his headquarters. Lyman Draper in his definitive history, King's Mountain and Its Heroes, on page 159, states Gilbert "was a Loyal friend of King George." In 1897, Flournoy Rivers wrote in a Nashville newspaper that "Draper seemed to have presumed that Gilbert was a Loyalist simply because Major Ferguson camped at Gilbert Town, as though an invading army would ever quarter on a friend while in an enemy's country. As a fact, the Assembly was then sitting at Hillsborough and Gilbert, being the county's representative in the House of Commons, was most likely absent there, and Ferguson, in his absence, most probably quartered on [Gilbert] as an object lesson by way of making treason odious, as it were."
North Carolina records indicate that on October 25th, 1775, Gilbert and others, including the Committee of Safety, signed the "Association Oath," expressing profound regret that "his Brittannic Majesty had been so ill-advised as to encroach on the undoubted rights of the colonists as Englishmen, with the firmly expressed intention of sustaining both the Continental and Provincial Congresses."
In October, 1783, Gilbert wanted to visit his wife's relatives in Philadelphia. The court, sitting at his son-in-law's house, prepared, under the seal of the court, a statement of his standing and civic virtues, by way of a letter of introduction. "That the said William Gilbert hath long been an inhabitant of this county, hath frequently represented the same in the General Assembly; that he is first in commission of the place, and that it appears from the lists of assessments returned into the clerk's office that he is possessed of and hath given in for assessing more taxable property than any other person in the county of Rutherford, and that he hath uniformly distinguished himself as a warm Whig and a true friend to his county in times of greatest distress and defection during the war."
Despite his successful defense of the charges of treason, Gilbert continued to have legal problems after the war, being engaged in numerous lawsuits, and eventually lost his property. In 1786, 1787, and a portion of 1788, he lived in Charleston, South Carolina. He later returned to Gilbert Town to live at the home of his son-in-law, James Holland, where he died in 1790. He was buried on Ferguson's Hill above Gilbert Town.
Gilbert's wife, Sarah McCanless Gilbert, lived until 1822. She went with the James Holland family in 1790 to Maury County, Tennessee, and is buried at Holland's Ford on the Duck River.
James Holland married Gilbert's daughter Sarah. He represented Rutherford County in the North Carolina House of Commons and the Senate. He was elected to the first board of trustees of the University of North Carolina.

Four Tips for Tracing Your Ancestors Back to Ireland





special thanks to Larry for sharing the following tips for tracing your Irish ancestors ...

Among your biggest challenges in Irish genealogy research is identifying that specific place of origin on the Emerald Isle. Although the island of Ireland is about the size of Indiana, it can seem as big as Jupiter if that's all you have to go on. But if you learn all you can about your Irish ancestors in American records, with a bit of Irish luck, you might discover their origins. Leave no Blarney Stone unturned in your search, including tombstones. Here are some quick tips to get you started.


1. The Irish are known for including the county and sometimes the townland of origin on their headstones-for example, Bridget McNamara's Richmond, Va., headstone says she was a native of Kildysart, County Clare, Ireland.


2. Be sure to look for obituaries, death certificates and church records in America, as Catholic priests with largely Irish congregations might have included this information in records of marriages, baptisms or burials. But a place of origin can turn up in any record, so gather every document your ancestor might've created in America.


3. Expanding your search to all family members' records is key, too, as instructor Sharon Carmack learned when researching her great-grandmother Delia Gordon. Delia and her twin sister, Mary, emigrated from Ireland. Some relatives thought they were from County Cork. Records for Delia, Mary and their immediate families said only "Ireland." When Mary attempted suicide in 1906, a newspaper article mentioned another sister, Annie, whom Sharon hadn't known about. Sharon started tracking Annie's family, and her husband's naturalization gave Annie's origins as County Leitrim. Because of Sharon's lengthy search for the three sisters, she could give the County Leitrim Heritage Centre (part of the Irish Family History Foundation's network of genealogy centers) enough information to find the Gordons in church records. Turns out they lived in the townland of Ardvarney.


4. To find Irish Heritage Centres and learn what records they have, go to <www.irish-roots.net/counties.asp> . They're generally not open to the public, and they charge a fee for searches, but some offer records and indexes on their websites. If you're still coming up empty on the place of origin, broaden your search to people associated with your ancestor, such as witnesses to baptisms, deeds, and other records, as well as Irish-born neighbors listed in the census. Immigrants tended to migrate with and settle near people they knew from their homeland.
