From "Families Remembered" taken from "The Descendents of Johannes Steinseiffer" compiled by H.S. Stonecipher:
"Johann Heinrich Steinseiffer came to America on October 2, 1753, from the Saxon district of Germany. He sailed on the ship Edinburg from Rotterdam, Netherlands, by way of Cowes, England to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. (He) was married to Mary Huffman/Hoffman. Her parentage is not known at the present time. (They) had the following children:
Joseph Stonecypher - b. 1754, John Henry Stonecypher, Jr. - b. 1756, Michael Stonecypher - b. ca 1758, Peter Stonecypher - b. ca 1760, Eva Stonecypher - b. 1762, Mary Stonecypher b. ca 1764, Daniel Stonecypher - b. ca 1766. All of these children were born in Culpepper Co., VA. In 1768 Johann Heinrich Steinseiffer/Stonecypher moved his family to Wilkes Co., NC. Mary (Huffman/Hoffman) Steinseiffer died before 1782 since Johann Heinrich Steinseiffer married for a second time to Ellen/Elenor Burk. Later he married a third time to Alice Furthermore. There were no children from either of these marriages. Johann Heinrich Steinseiffer died in Wilkes Co., NC in 1816."

From "Stonecifer Family" Fayette Facts, XVII No. 3 which was taken from "The Stonecipher Tree" by Mary Underwood:
"John Henry Stonecipher, born 1725, Germany, died ca 1810, Ash Co., NC. He married 1) Ellen Dorch and she died before 1780, John m 2) Eleanor Burke 27 Aug 1781, m 3) Alcy Furthermore. Children of John Henry Stonecipher and Ellen Dorth (Dortch): Joseph Stonecipher b. 1754, Culpeper Co., VA; Eve Stonecipher b. 1758, VA; John Stonecipher b. 1755 VA; Daniel Stonecipher, b 1760; Michael Stonecipher, b. 1762. Children of John Henry Stonecipher and Eleanor Burke: Peter Stonecipher, b. 1782; Mary Stonecipher, b. 1784."

My notes: Notice differences of first wives. In 1790 a John Stonecypher did marry a Mary Huffman in Culpepper Co., VA. This could have been picked up as John Henry Stonecypher's marriage in the "Families Remembered" but she clearly couldn't be the mother of those children and probably not this John's wife. Also notice that "Families Remembered" listed all children to be by first wife and notice the different birth dates. I have no proof of either, yet. "The History of Franklin Co., Ga shows Peter and Mary to be by second wife. John Henry Stonecypher's will was probated in Wilkes Co., NC in 1818.

From "Families Remembered" which was copied from "The Descendents of Johannes Steinseiffer" compiled by H.S. Stonecypher:
"Johannes Steinseiffer was born in the year 1692 in Eiserfeld, Westphalia-Germany. The names of his parents are not known. Circa 1720 he was married to Elizabeth Hoffman, who was born circa 1698 in Germany. The names of her parents are unknown. Johannes Steinseiffer and Elizabeth (Hoffman) Steinseiffer's children were all born in Eiserfeld, Wesphalia-Germany.
Johannes Steinseiffer and wife, along with seven of their eight children landed Philadelphia, Pennsylvania arriving on the ship Patience on September 1, 1749. Later he and his family moved to Culpepper Co., VA where he owned 200 acres of land that was later named in his will. Johannes Steinseiffer died in 1757 and is buried in Culpepper Co., VA, in the German Reformed Church Cemetery there. His wife is thought to have died a few years later."

From "Fayette Facts" XVII No. 3, taken from "The Stonecipher Tree" by Mary Underwood:
"The family begins with Johannes Stonecipher. He was born 1695 in Eisenfeld, Germany in a home lived in for 24 consecutive generations of this family. It was built in 1255 and was torn down in 1971 to build a parsonage. Johannes, with his family left Freudenberg, Nassau-Seigen, March, 1739, sailing in the boat "Patience" from South Hampton, England. They left the port of South Hampton, May 8, 1739 and docked in the Colony Savannah of Georgia. There they made preparation for the trip overland to Virginia. Arrangements were made for wagons, horses, provisions. Weeks later they arrived in a settlement of other German Lutheran families in Culpepper County. The first German families came here in 1714 under the protection of Governor Spotsgood to work in his ore (iron) mines. Their homes were built around the mines and they became discouraged with the poor soil and their treatment in the mines. They moved to land higher up on the forks of the Rappahannock River for lands of their own. This area is now within the boundary of present day Madison Co., VA. They founded a Lutheran Church where the Robinson River joined the White Oak River. It was to this section John Stonecipher brought his family in 1738.
They farmed the land, producing their own food, made themselves self-sustaining within their own community. The Church was the center of their activities. They kept well to themselves in Virginia as they were to do later in North Carolina. As a rule, they traded and married within their own settlement. They used few, if any slaves; they helped one another. After the Revolutionary War, bringing freedom from the English, they began to appear in court records. Their church had attended to marriage and settlement of disagreements.
Sixteen years after he came to this new home, John Stonecipher was dead. He has prospered, owned over 200 acres of land, which he had cleared. His Will was dated 2 April 1754, Culpepper County, VA, Parish of Brumfield in which he named his heirs as, Beloved wife, Elizabeth Stinsyfer, sons, John the Elder, Henricus, John the Younger, Henry and 2 daughters. The inventory of his estate was dated July 21 1757."

My notes: Notice the different dates and port of arrival. According to "Pennsylvania German Pioneers - A Publication of the Original Lists of Arrivals in the Port of Pennsylvania from 1727 - 1808" by Ralph Strossburger and "A Collection of Upwards of 30,000 Names of Germans, Swiss, Dutch, French and Other Immigrants in Pennsylvania from 1727 - 1776 ..." by Daniel Rupp Israel, Johannes Steinseiffer arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1749.

From "Families Remembered":
"(Charlie Edgar) Stonecypher was a farmer by occupation. Sometime after the birth of all of his children he moved his family to near Rochelle, Georgia (Wilcox County). In later years he moved to Eastman, Georgia. He was a deeply religious man and he and his wife were members of the Baptist faith." 
Stonecypher, Charlie Edgar (I699)

From "Families Remembered":
"The following was related to the author by Mrs. Minnie Stonecypher Smith: `Epp Morris Stonecypher went to Texas, but before going he had asked Lucinda Reese to marry him. Lucinda Reese said she would and waited for him to come back from Texas. She waited five years until he returned. Epp Morris Stonecypher came back for Lucinda Reese, married her on December 2, 1886 and went back to Texas with her the next day. Four of their children were born in Texas. About 1895 Epp Morris Stonecypher brought his family back to Georgia. His wife had to prepare food for the trip on the train that would last several days. After they had left on the train the conductor told the children he would punch a hole in their ears with his ticket taker if they didn't behave. The train trip lasted several days before the family reached Atlanta, Georgia, their destination.'
Once back in Georgia the family settled near Suwanee, in Gwinnett County. Three more children were born to the couple.
The Stonecypher's were Baptist by faith and a stained glass window is dedicated to them in the First Baptist Church of Suwanee, Georgia.

The same book gives Epp Stonecypher's death date as 4 September 1950. 
Stonecypher, Epp Morris (I687)

From "Franklin County's Historic Families" copied from "The Weekly Tribune" of 24 Jan 1890:
"James Stonecypher, the youngest son of John Stonecypher, married a daughter of Daniel Camp, and when quite a young woman she was drowned in Tugaloo River in attempting to ford it on horseback. Afterwards he married Patsy Morris, a sister of.....Thomas Morris, and settled.....Rev. Thomas J. Stonecypher.....of this county is one of his sons. When James settled in Rabun County, his father had a road cut from his home to the house of his son in Rabun County, and even now we sometimes hear of the Stonecypher Road."

From "Families Remembered" taken from "The Descendents of Johannes Steinseiffer" compiled by H.S. Stonecypher:
"On April 2, 1818 James and Martha Ruth started from near Eastonaellee, Georgia on horseback, each carrying one of the twin boys on their respective horses. James had Joseph while Martha Ruth had John, as they attempted to cross the Tugaloo River to visit Martha Ruth's parents in South Carolina. This crossing is known as Clevelands Ford. Martha Ruth Stonecypher and her son John were swept off her horse in the river and drowned before James could safely put Joseph on the river bank and go back to assist his wife and son.
James Thomas Stonecypher was quite a wealthy man according to the standards of his day. Records indicate that he owned at least ten thousand acres of land along the Moccasin Creek Valley (now Lake Burton) in Rabun County, Georgia where his home was located. Other records show that he owned numerous slaves. James Thomas Stonecypher died on May 23, 1854. He willed his entire estate to his wife, Patsy. James had sold most of his estate and all of his slaves prior to his death. Patsy Stonecypher died on May 7, 1876. At her death the rest of the estate was sold by the heirs to their brother, William Stonecypher, for $150.00 for each heir's share. James and Patsy Stonecypher are buried in Rabun County, Georgia."

From "Sketches of Rabun County History":
"All of the best land lots that were acquired by the first settlers in the Talllulah district are now under the water of the Burton Lake of the Georgia Power Company. By going to the records we find that, although this district was furthest back and more isolated than the others, there were three enterprising men who had seen something that caused them to go back there in the same years that the Millers, Cannons and Becks were establishing themselves in the more accessible locations. These three men were Tillman Powell, Edley Powell and James Stonecypher. They were no ordinary men. They were the kind that dreamed of great things and had visions. What they saw here was a fine body of bottom land which lay in the heart of the district on the Talllulah River and where Dick's Creek, Wild Cat, and Moccasin flow into it on the west side and where Timpson Creek comes in from the east side. Here next to the area in the Tennessee Valley lay the largest body of level and fertile land in the county.
These three men were for some time the only settlers on the west side of the Tallulah River. ..........
On September 10, 1824, James Stonecypher bought from John Stonecypher of Franklin county part of lot 105 on Wild Cat Creek, the area being 240 acres, for the sum of $1000. James Stonecypher was at that time living in Franklin County. It is not clear just how he was related to John Stonecypher. He was one of the few first settlers that came in to Rabun County from a county within the state. He was also the only man among the first settlers to build a road to get into the county and to the lot of land which he had purchased. This road started at some point in the upper part of Habersham County and was built to the purchase above referred to on Wild Cat Creek. It has always been called the Stonecypher Road and remains today a monument to the constructive energy of this outstanding man.
............All of the lots in this district contained 490 acres. When it is remembered that it takes only 640 acres to make a square mile of land, it can be seen how large an area these three men were getting together. In later years when the law was changed to allow a citizen to take up as many lots of wild land as he wanted, James Stonecypher became the owner of no fewer than seventeen lots. Most of these were back in the mountains so situated that there was no market for them and they cost him only about enough to pay the taxes and get the deeds recorded. As shown by the inventory of his estate at his death his entire holdings were more than eight thousand acres. The lands owned by Tillman Powell were in the upper part of the valley, while those of Edley Powell were in the central part, and those of James Stonecypher occupied a larger territory south of the others."

From "Sketches of Rabun County History" by Andrew Jackson Ritchie 1819 - 1944:
"There is no more well known or truer story of a man who had to make his own road, as many others did, that that of James Stonecypher. He was one of the first three settlers in the west side of the old Tallulah Dist. In 1824 he acquired from his father then living in Franklin Co. at the price of $1000 a lot of land on Wild Cat Creek. But there was no road, and from a point in what is now Habersham Co. he had to cut a road to get to it. A section of it in Habersham Co. is still in use and is known as the Stonecypher Road to this day."

There is some confusion as to the children of James Thomas Stonecypher and Patsy Morris. "Families Remembered" gives the following as children:
James Benjamin, William, John V., Marion, Thomas J., James Thomas, Jr., Franklin, Sarah, Nancy, and Susannah. The James Stonecypher bible record which was found, I think, in the "History of Franklin Co., Georgia" gives James F., Benjamin, Sarah, and William. "The History of Franklin Co., Georgia" lists children as James Jr., Frank, William, Marion, and Thomas (Rev. Thomas J.).

From "Franklin county's Historic Families" copied from "The Weekly Tribune" of 24 Jan 1890:
"Phoebe, the youngest (daughter), married Daniel Mosely and was the mother of James A., John C., and Samuel H. Mosely, all well known to our readers. Mrs. Mosely was an unusually quiet, placid, kindhearted woman. It has been often said and its truth is not doubted that she was never heard to say an ill word of any human being.

From "Hortons in America"
"(Simon Grover Horton) graduated at Yale College in 1731; was bred a Congregationalist, but he was installed pastor of the Presbyterian Church, in Connecticut Farms, L.I., between September 1734 and September 1735. In 1746 he accepted a call to Newtown, L.I. where he labored until 1772, when he resigned and remained in retirement till his decease, 8 May 1786, at the residence of his son-in-law, Judge Benjamin Coe. He was a man of unquestioned purity, and always sustained a good character and standing. He was of middle size and solemn deportment."---Hatfield's History of Elizabeth, NJ
"He was a refugee during the Revolutionary War, with his son-in-law, at Warwick, Orange Co., NY. They returned to Newtown, L.I., in the fall of 1783, and there he died, as stated above. He was a zealous and active Whig, and early espoused the cause of the colonies against the mother country."

From "Hortons of America":
"Henry Claiborne Horton enlisted in the Confederate Army 1861 in the 'Shelby Greys' of Memphis, Tennessee who gave a good account of themselves during the war. They were in 18 pitched battles and were under fire every day during the advance of Sherman from Chattanooga to Atlanta. At Nashville he was wounded and captured, and suffered imprisonment. After his exchange he engaged in farming and stock raising on his plantation on the Alabama River. He was fond of country life, scrupulously honest in all his dealings, living to a good old age."

Chapter XX p.37

"A native Georgian is C.B. Hagans, whose birth occurred in 1826; since 1858 he has been a resident of Warren County, Miss. He is now next to the eldest of five surviving members of a family of twelve children, born to Edward and Hartie (Porch) Hagans, who were also born in Georgia, the former moving to Talladega Co., Ala., at an early day, at which place he engaged in planting. He died, in 1866, at the age of eighty-two years. C.B. Hagans spent his early life in Talladega Co., and at the age of twenty-five years engaged in planting, a calling he has followed, with good results, up to the present time. Upon first coming to Warren Co., he followed the calling of an overseer for some time, but, upon the opening of the war, turned his attention to other pursuits. He rented land planted until1872, when he purchased his present property of two hundred and fifty acres, of which two hundred acres are under cultivation. He is a successful and experienced planter, and although his plantation is not as large as many others, it is tilled in such an admirable manner that it yields a larger profit than many much larger places. His property has been acquired through his own efforts, and it is acknowledged by all his acquaintances that his honesty and fair dealing is above question. He was married, in 1855, to Miss Louisa Ware, a native of Alabama, by whom he is the father of six children: J.D., R.W. (deceased), E.H., a resident of Louisiana; G.W., also a resident of that state, C.A., of Warren Co., Miss., and M.F., also of this county. Mrs. Hagans died on the 6th of February, 1891, at the age of sixty years, having been an earnest and constant member of the Methodist Episcopal church South, for many years. Mr. Hagans also belongs to that church, is a member of Bovinia lodge No. 112, of the A.F. & A.M., and is an active and public spirited citizen. His brother Sherrod resides in Alabama; D.C. is unmarried and makes his home with his brother, C.B. Hagans; Sarah, a sister, is the wife of Perry Bullard, of Mississippi, and Amortah is the wife of W. Deacon, and resides in Alabama."

From Roma Mitchell:
Jim Louis did not go to school but started working at a very young age. He could not read or write, but after he married Minnie she taught him to read and write and he proved to be a very good student. At the age of 14, his right hand was severely injured in a cotton gin accident. (This was caused by his brother Wyley not doing his share of the work!) His hand was treated without the use of anesthesia or pain medicine. The doctor had to use 185 stitches in his hand and arm. He was not given much chance to live. His sister Dollie Ann, acted as doctor and nurse afterwards to help his hand to heal. She changed the dressing and kept it clean. He was able to use his thumb and bend his fingers at the hand joint.

Little Arnold Reeves Royal, two year old son of Mr and Mrs. A.E. Royal, 1932 Ogletree St. died Saturday, June 19 as a result of drinking ant poison accidentally left within his reach. Although the members of the family learned of the accident immediately and the child was rushed to the infirmary where the doctors and nurses did everything possible they could not save his life.
Survivors are his parents, a sister Carolyn and brother Talmadge Royal.

Grandma, Autry Norred, told that when Dicen died, Grandpa, Dee Norred, helped embalm her in her home. Grandma and others were in another room and said they could hear Beulah grunting during the embalming process. She may have been in a diabetic coma and not dead at all. The embalmers said it was gasses escaping the body. Maybe, maybe not. Of course, after the embalming she was certainly dead.

Herbert Lewis Norred has Armettia Norred's birth date as 1877 instead of 1875.
The notes written by Belle Norred Rozelle in possession of Sybell Alexander (1997) has Armettia's birth date as 12 December 1878.

Sybell Alexander remembers Mettie Rainwater as a proper, sophisticated type lady who liked to think of herself as a "lady". She always wore stylish clothes and was not one to care much for "getting her hands dirty".

Sylacauga News 9 July 1964
Mrs. Armettie N. Rainwater, age 88, expired July 1, in the Sylacauga Nursing Home. Funeral services were held July 3 in the Childersburg First Baptist church with interment in Childersburg Cemetery with Rev. Robert Perry and Rev. Lindey Martin officiating ministers. Survivors:

In 1784 moved from Wilkes Co., NC to Wilkes Co., GA and about 1820
moved to Franklin Co., GA.

From "Families Remembered" which was taken from "The Descendents of Johannes Steinseiffer" compiled by H.S. Stonecipher:
"John Henry Stonecypher, Jr. was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He enlisted as a private in 1776, and fought in a number of battles in North and South Carolina. He fought in the Battle of Kings Mountain, where he was captured by the British. He later escaped and made his way back to Wilkes Co., North Carolina, where he re-enlisted. John Henry Stonecypher, Jr. moved to Hart Co., Georgia circa 1784. He later moved in 1786 to Franklin Co., Georgia and settled on Eastonalle Creek. He was given a land grant of approximately 20,000 acres in Rabun and Franklin Co., Georgia by the United States Government in payment for his services in the Revolutionary War. On his property on Eastonalle Creek he built a water mill and dam. The dam was still in existence in 1974, but is not used. He later built his home that was located on what is now Highway 17 which runs north from Lavonia to Toccoa, Georgia. This house was built of lumber that he cut from his own water mill in 1789. The house was two stories high, built of eight inch by eight inch square timbers, laid one upon top of each other, and was mortised at the corners. The partitions were made of three inch by ten inch timbers laid edgewise and each of these were mortised into the houses' wall timbers. The house stood until 1964. Across from the home was the family cemetery. John Henry Stonecypher, Jr. was a very large man weighing about 200 pounds. He was a very well known individual in his day and time. He was a member of the Baptist church. John Henry Stonecypher, Jr. died at the age of 106 years. His cause of death was attributed to a fall from the door of the house of John Adams, his miller. He never recovered from the injuries sustained in the fall and died about two years later in 1850. John Henry Stonecypher, Jr. was buried in the family cemetery across from his home. His wife, Nancy (Curtis) Stonecypher died circa 1849 and is buried in the same cemetery along with their daughter Mary Stonecypher and their daughter-in-law, Martha Ruth (Camp) Stonecypher.

From "Franklin County's Historic Families" copied from "The Weekly Tribune" of 24 Jan. 1890:
"John Stonecipher entered the army at the beginning of the Revolution, and served until its close--most of the time as captain of a company. In the year 1787, he settled in this county of Lightwood Log Creek, now Hart Co. A few years later he moved on Eastanollee Creek, to Jarrett's Bridge, and lived there until the time of his death. It is said that he planted the first corn that was ever planted in the territory of the county. While living on Lightwood Log Creek and probably after moving to Eastanollee, he was several times sent out in command of a company of soldiers to watch or quell the Indians. One entire summer was spent in the service, and his wife planted and cultivated a crop of corn with a hoe, which yielded a supply for the following year.
He built the dwelling house that now stands on what is known as the Stonecypher place, later as the Mosely place, now the property of S.H. Mosely, in the latter part of the last century. It is a very staunch well-preserved house, and at the time it was probably the best house in the county. The work was done by an English mechanic by the name of Pessnell, and is said that it was ten years from the time he commenced until the house was finished. Every sill, sleeper, joist, post and scantling was morticed in the sills and plates, and so securely braced that a mechanic who examined it a few years ago said it would roll all over a ten acre field without falling to pieces. All the nails used in the building were wrought and the roofs of the outbuildings were put on with wooden pegs. The first roof put on and the ends rounded, and they were probably of rich heart pine, as it remained there more than sixty years, and was a passably good roof when the house was recovered.
Mr. Stonecypher built the old Stonecypher mills, later called Mosely mill and now the property of R.D. Yow. Of course the old house and dam and everything except the dirt race has been replaced by more modern and pretentious structures. The old mill was built about the beginning of the present century by a millwright names Thomas Sockwell. Later on he had a mill put up at Rocky Creek on his farm now owned by Thomas W. Smith. Fifty years ago the mill on Eastonolle was kept by John Adams, grandfather of M.A. Adams, a worthy citizen of Gum Log, and at the same time the mill on Rocky Creek was looked after by a free Negro named Force, generally known as Godfrey Alphan.
John Stonecypher was a tall, robust man, of very great muscular strength weighing about 200 pounds without an ounce of surplus flesh. He had an iron constitution, and in old age could stand fatigue and endure exposure under which most young men would have failed. Without the ability to read or write the English language, he was a ..... good general information,.......idea of business and was uncommonly successful in all his business undertakings. He was abrupt, rough and (straightf)ourth in his address, but a heart as gentle as a child, and never sent the poor away empty-handed. Men who had money to pay for food were often turned away with the remark that there are plenty of people who eat my corn and meat who have no money. His membership in the Baptist church, extended back to times immemorial, and he always occupied the place of a leader. No man is perfect, Mr. Stonecypher was not. He sometimes wrestled with John Barleycorn, and under extreme provocation would vent his feelings in profane words, but he had so many noble and excellent traits that the church took no notice of his shortcomings. He died at the age of one hundred and six years, and up to the time of the accident that caused his death he was strong and healthy. The indirect cause of his death was a fall from the door of the house of John Adams, the miller. He lived a year or two afterwards, but never recovered from the injuries received by the fall, which, together with the confinement and inability to take exercise, caused his death.
John Stonecypher was a Study man of strong common sense and strong constitution. His descendants are hardy, strong, genial, clever and noted for their strong common sense."

From Georgia D.A.R. Historical Collections Vol 1:
"John Stonecypher
Resident of Capt. Bryant's District, age 75. Entered service in North Carolina May or June, 1779, at Wilkes C.H., under Col. Cleveland and placed as guard over some prisoners at Salsbury. Served a 3 months tour and returned to Wilkes C.H. and was marched to Ramsaurs on Catawba River where engaged in battle. From there was marched to New River to try to stop the Roberts (sic), and a gang of Tories came up at King's Creek where there was battle and drove the Tories off. At the end of this 3 months tour again entered service at Wilkes C.H., about June 1780, in militia under Capt. Rutledge, and thinks the regiment was commanded by Cols. Locke and Isaacs. Was placed under Gen. Gates and served 3 months. Again entered the militia at Salsbury and marched to Charlotte and thence to near Camden and was in that battle at defeat of Gates. Escaped and returned home for a few days when again entered service at Wilkes C.H. under Col. Cleveland, with whom he remained until Battle of King's Mountain, October, 1780. Was in that battle and was afterwards put under command of Gen. (formerly Col.) Davidson and was engaged at battle at Beatty's Ford on Catawba River, where our forces were trying to prevent the British, under Cornwallis, from crossing. At this battle Col. Davidson was killed and we were defeated and retreated to widow Tarrances, where we were attacked next morning in her lane and again defeated. Returned to Wilkes C.H. and joined the militia under Col. Cleveland and served with him ......" (I copied wrong page after this.)
