Notes


"Valentine and his brother, Frederick, married sisters: Susan and Margaret Range. They settled in Washington County, Tennessee and jointly operated a farm of 637 acres which had been purchased by their father from John Been in September of 1797.* The farm, located on the Watauga River, soon became known as DeVault's Ford.** In 1817 Valentine and Frederick inherited the farm from their father.


Valentine and Susan were married at the home of her parents, Peter and Elizabeth Range, who lived close by. (The Ranges' second house, as well as a grist mill are located on Knob Creek near the Massengill monument.)


Valentine, Frederick and their families lived together and jointly owned all of their property, including slaves. The two brothers and their sister-wives lived together for 18 years. Their children were raised more as brothers and sisters than cousins. At one time the two brothers owned all the property to Boon's Creek, a distance of two miles. One of the significant purchases of land that the two brothers made was what came to be known as the Massengill Tract: "1825 February 14th, Henry Massengill of Sullivan County to Valentine and Frederick Davault of Washington County, consideration $1950.00 for 385 acres of land in the counties of Washington and Sullivan, beginning at a cedar stump at the mouth of the spring branch of the north bank of the Watauga, thence north. Joins Stuart Collins, thence up the river to the beginning." In 1829 they were granted by the State of Tennessee an additional 60 acres in Washington County that included part of the "Big Island" in the Watauga River.


Their frontier home must have been large to accommodate two families. It must also have been a home of refinement for the front porch (which still exists, see 1840 home below) would add grace and dignity to any home today. It is hard to imagine an early 1800's frontier home with a porch of four columns supporting an arch with delicate wood work and carvings. The families lived in this home at a time when they probably had to keep an eye out for Indians.


In 1817 Frederick moved to the new community of Leesburg and began construction on the building that would become the DeVault Tavern. The tavern was built on a tract of 427 acres that the brothers had purchased from Thomas Brabson for $5700.00. In 1831 the two brothers divided all their property. Valentine retained the original farm that they had inherited from their father. Frederick took the Tavern and Brabson tract of land on which it was located.


In 1840 Valentine decided to replace the old home with a new brick home. The porch from the old house was placed at one end of the new home, next to the library. It adds much charm and beauty to the new home. Today the home sits on a knoll overlooking beautiful Watauga Lake.


Valentine and his wife, Susan, died of typhoid fever contracted from a spring near their house.


* The original deed to this farm remained in the possession Valentine's descendents for many years. Recently it was donated to the Knoxville Tennessee Historical Society.


** DeVault's Ford is near where the highway from Bristol to Johnson City crosses Watauga Lake. (About 1950 the Tennessee Valley Authority built a dam at the confulence of the Watauga and Holston Rivers forming Boone Lake. The upper reaches of the lake extend just past where the ford crossed the Watauga River.) The highway bridge here is named William DeVault Bridge. The original crossing was near the Valentine House about a quarter mile east of the highway bridge. The swale marking where the old trail crossed the river is still visable."
