Notes for DANIEL COLVIN:

Daniel and his family began the long trip to Louisiana in 1807 and records indicate that he was one of the first settlers to the Northern Louisiana area. He is noted for founding the town of Vienna just north of Ruston. It is said that the party traveled from S.C. to Kentucky, then down the Mississippi River to Natchez, then up the Red River to Ouachita to Old Trenton north of Western Monroe. At the time Daniel settled at Vienna, La, it was part of Ouachita Parish. In 1873, parts of Jackson Parish, Bienville Parish, Union Parish and Claiborne Parishes were bontributed to form Lincoln Parish.

In the early days, Vienna was on the main East-West road in North La and was a thriving community. When the railroad was constructed 4 miles south of vienna, business moved to be near the railroad and the town of Ruston was formed. The community of Vienna shrank to a mere crossroads as it is today.

In the listing of assets of Susan Huey, she included 19 black slaves that were valued in total at $7,550 along with 520 acres of land for a total estate value in 1840 of $10,752.

From Dill, Harry F. & William Simpson, Some Slaveholders and Their Slaves, Union Parish, La 1839-1865, Heritage Books, Inc, Bowie, Md: P 027 Book W, P6: Succession of Susan Huey, Jan 1841, died 4 Oct 1840. Mentions Husband Daniel Colvin, Sr., daughter Elizabeth Johnson, wife of Job Johnson, and father of James Huey, deceased. Slaves: Charity, 35, and children Rachel, 11, Burr, 9 Mos, Melinda, 7, Sarah, 5, Jane, 3, and James 6 mos; Shadrach, 25, Alex, 23, and Sun, a girl, 13, sold at auction to Daniel Colvin, Sr; Lucy, 16, Sophia, 22, and Bill, 20, sold to Jeptha Colvin; Ann, 24, and children, mary 18 mos and Ann, 2 mos sold to Daniel Colvin.

The Pleasant Grove Cemetary in Lincoln Parish includes a grave for James Huey, b Sept 10, 1800 d Oct 23, 1874 and one for Mary Wyatt, wife of James Huey b Dec 25, 1806 d Sep 19, 1876. This James Huey could be Susan Huey's brother.

After Susan Huey died, Daniel married a woman named Catherine May, who went by the name of Katy. The old home place came to be known as the Katy place and the family cemetery became known as the Katy Cemetery-- the oldest cemetery in Lincoln Parish. To get to this cemetery, go about 1.5 miles north of Vienna and turn right on a parish road. Go about 1 mile and the cemetery should be in the woods out to the right.

from page 053 of the above book, Book A, p 339 Before me, John Taylor, Parish Judge, came Daniel Colvin who declares that, in consideration of a marriage contract about to take place between him and Catherine May, widow of the late William May, he has granted to said Catherine May 2 negro slaves, Alex 25 and Sarah, 17. Dated 1 Sep 1843. Signed Daniel Colvin, signed Catherine May [her mark "x"].

At the Katy graveyard, there is a grave of Eliza A, wife of John Huey Jr, born April 12, 1818, died Spet 15, 1858, aged 40 yr 5 mo 3 da. This John Huey Jr must be related to Susan Huey.

Notes for JOHN HENRY POPE:

Per David Pope, Statesville,NC: In the minutes of the Catawba County Court of Pleas and Quarter Session for the December 1848, a John Pope,junior, obtained the authority to retail spirits liquors in the Town of Newton for one year.David is not positive that this is the proper John Pope. He assumes that he is the son of the elder John Pope.

John Pope was 26 years of age and living in the household of E. R. SHuford(#1/1), Newton Township,at the time the 1850 US CENSUS of Catawba County,NC was taken.

On the 18th day of October in 1855, John Pope is found in Chester District,SC when he purchased, from John Clark for $457.50, a parcel of land containing 70 acres more or less bordered on the north by Turner Coley,on the east by Elijah Cornwell and Sarah Fant, on the south by land of John Clark, and on the west by land of Cephas Bolick. The deed was witnessed by Nicholas Colvin and Elizbeth Colvin. Gail Pope Barnes found a John Pope living in SC in 1860. David Pope and she beleives that he is the John Pope of the 1850 Catawba Co NC Census. This beleif is based on the facts that both of these John Popes were carpenters,both were born in NC, and that Iraneous Pope,who was a Catawba County native, was a co-partner with John Pope.

The following information is found in the Federal Census records:

1860 Chester Co SC, Halseville Township,page 29,#671/433: John Pope was listed as a 32 year old carpenter and as being born in NC. Others listed were all born in SC: Mary Pope(26),Martin F.(7),Martha A.(5),and Jno. N.(2). 1870 Chester Co SC,#110/110: Mary A Pope was listed a being 36 years old,keeping house,and as having $4000 in real property and $2000 in personal property. Her children were listed as Martin F.(17, farmer),Martha A.(14), John N.(12),Mary E.(8), Wiilliam J.(5), and Joanna M.(2). All gave SC as their birthplace.

John Pope's estate is recorded in the Judge of Probate's Office in Winnsboro,Fairfield Co,SC. It was recorded 14December 1868,in File No.28,Package 338. James Johnston ,Esquire, was the Ordinary of Fairfield County at the time. The Widow, Mary A Pope,was the administrator of the estate. Nicholas Colvin and William Brice were the bondsmen. Fannie Colvin was the witness.

The first return for the estate was dated in 1869. Names mentioned were: J. Shook,James Allen,James Johnston, and W A Bolick(Note: Shook and Bolick are family names common to Catawba County,NC) An appraisal bill of the estate of John Pope was filed 3 March 1869. The appraisers were J H Douglas,J H Brice, and J W Stevenson. Mention was made of a dwelling with an upstairs with two rooms. On 4March1869, there was a sale bill filed.Names mentioned were: Wm. Brice,Iranous Pope,James Lemmon,Henry Brice,R I Gladney,John Douglass, Jacob Lemmon,John W Clark, M A Clark,and E J Simpson. At the sale, Iranous Pope claimed one half interest of the carpenters tools as being in co-partnership with John Pope before his death.Pope claimed the tools had never been devided and were worth $24.00. The final return for the estate was made on 5 October 1874.
