I have just discovered that Hazy McHone and Arthur McFalls were my gggreatgrandparents.They had a daughter, Sarah Caroline McFalls, who married John William Lowery.One of their sons was Henry Wesley Lowery who married Rosa(Dora) Duvall.These people also had several kids.One was my grandmother Pearl Augustus Lowery.
I have to ask a crazy question because it's been a family rumor for years.Was there a connection with a Cherokee Indian in this branch?
I am very impressed with the information collected and excited to learn of a McHone reunion held on the 2nd weekend of August.Could you give me more info?
Also, in a family document, Sarah Caroline said of her father, Arthur McFalls, that he went to fight for "the Southern Cause in the Civil War and never came back."I found one message here that said that an Arthur McFalls was killed at the battle of Shiloe.Would this be the same Arthur McFalls?Other messages say that Arthur was at one time "married" to an Indian woman named Teek.Who was she and did this have anything to do with Hazy McHone?Still so many questions.
Other names I'm researching are Hunter/Banks/Kilpatrick/Lowery.They all seem to center around the same areas in western NC: Rutherford, Buncombe, Madison, YancyThis is fun, but I'm not very good at it.Thanks for your help
