The Description of Ireland: And the State Thereof as it is at this Present in Anno 1598 by Edmund Hogan.

P. 52.

“The Fothart O'NOLAN, or country of O'NOLAN is now the barony of Forth in the co. of Carlow. O'Flaherty in his Ogygia, p. iii., c. 64, says O'NOLAN the last proprietor and chief of this territory died a short time before O'Flaherty wrote his book, so there must have been a chief of that name in 1598. O'Heerin thus sings of the chief in his time:

'O'NUALLAIN, hero without fault

Chief prince, fine and bountiful of

Fothart.'

O'N. was senior Vassal of M'Murrogh; 'O'N., the Lord of Fotharta was slain in 1133; his son was slain in 1154; Shan O'N. was chief of Fogharta in 1394; and in 1406 Laighsech O'N. the royal heir of Foghart died.'—See Four Masters and Annals of Loch Ce.”



“The inauguration of the Kavanagh Clan Chief was traditionally the responsibility of the O NUALLAIN, Chief of Fortharta Feadha * O NUALLAIN or O NOLAN, as marshal of the Clan performed the ceremony of passing over the symbols of the chieftainship.”

** 1315 - “When Felim (O'Conor) heard that William Burke had arrived in Connacht from Alba (Scotland) he commanded a muster of his people to one place, to expel him (Burke). And this was the muster that came there, namely all from Es-Ruaidh,* to Echtghe:* And Donogh O'Brien, King of Thomond came in his following and muster: And O'Melaghlin, King of Meath: And O'Rourke, King af Breifne: And O'Ferrall, King of Conmaicne (Angally, now Co. Longford): And Tadgh O'Kelly, King of Hy-Many; and many more of the Kings and Chieftains of ERIN, came in his muster. And they all went to Ath-na-righ (Athenry) against William Burke, MacFeorais and the other Foreigners of Connacht: And a battle was fought between them, at the door of the town; and the Gaels were defeated there, and Felim O'Conor, King of Connaught was slain there; and Tadhg O'Kelly, King of Hy-Many, and twenty persons entitled to the sovereignty of Hy-Many fell there along with him: And Art O'Heghra (O'Hara) King of Leyney: And Melaghlin O'Dowde: And Dermot MacDermot, who was fit to be King of Moylurg: And John son of Murragh O'Madden and Murragh O'Madden: And Donnell, son of Aedh O'Concannon, King of Hy-Dermoda: And Donnell O'Boyle: And Nial Sinnach (The Fox), King of Feara-Taffia (Foxes Country, now part of Kings County): And Farrell, son of John galda O'Ferrall, William, son of Aedh oge O'Ferrall, and Thomas, son of Awley O'Ferrall: And five of the clan Donnagh were slain there: And John MacEgan, O'Conor's brehon, and Gillananaev son of O'Dolan, the standard bearer, and Thomas O'Connellan, were slain there, around their Lord. And it is not easy to tell all that were then slain of the men of Munster and the men of Meath and of the men of ERIN likewise; as the poet says



As the Anglo-Norman force sustained but little loss in this battle, it is likely that their archers at the onset showered a hail of arrows upon the Irish host who were not protected with mail armour, and shot them down in hundreds before they could get to close quarters; and that then the charge of the heavy Anglo-Norman cavalry of mail-clad knights, completed the havoc and rout of the undisciplined Gaelic hosts. This battle of Athenry must be reckoned in its effects and results as one of the most decisive battles in Ireland during the Anglo-Norman period. It fully established the De Burgh supremacy in Connaught over the native Irish there.”

THE CAREER OF FR. GREGORY FRENCH, OP.

Part 1.


December 1652 - “After the surrender of Galway in 1652, we find Fr. French, who had been appointed Vicar of the Galway Dominican Nuns by the papal nuncio, John Baptist Runicinni, Archbishop of Fermo in 1647, negotiating the reception of fourteen Irish nuns, including Sr. Mary French, possibly a relation, in Spanish monasteries. Sr. Mary Lynch and Sr. JULIAN NOLAN were eventually settled in the Convent of the Incarnation in Bilbao in December, 1652; for three months before their assimilation into the Spanish community, Fr. French paid four reales a day for their upkeep.”

* GREGORY NOLAN gave the chalice to the Franciscan Friary or Abbey of Clare (Clar) Galway, founded around 1260 but now a ruin, six miles from Galway city. The Franciscans abandoned it finally (through shortage of numbers) in 1860. Previously they lived in a small house erected on the grounds, and used as a church a part of the old building, which had been re-roofed. The Abbey or friary had been sacked and pillaged many times by the English, even as late as 1798. In the latter years, before 1860, the Franciscans commuted quite a lot between the Abbey in Galway city and Claregalway. ‘This chalice belongs to the Chaple of Clar’ that is the little church or penal chapel amid the ruins of the abbey. ‘Chaple’ was the only word that Catholics were allowed to use under the Penal Laws. Only Protestants could use the word ‘church’. This information is from Fr. M. Holland of The Abbey Galway.

THE HISTORY OF GALWAY - PART III.

THE ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY OF THE TOWN TO THE PRESENT TIME.

Chapter XIV. 256.


* “On the accession of James II. the Catholic clergy again assembled in the town, 29 and on the 29th March, 1688, the then corporation informed archbishop Vesey that his majesty had been pleased to grant them a charter containing, amongst other privileges, a power to elect a warden and eight vicars, and granting the rights and revenues belonging to the wardenship and college, and others in his grace's possession, which they requested he would forthwith order to be delivered to them, except the church and cemetery, during the pleasure of government. 30 On the 1st of August following, they proceeded, under the charter, to the election of the clergy, when father Henry Browne was chosen warden for the year; and fathers Henry Joyce, Michael Lynch, James Fallon, John Bodkin, Jerome Martyn, NICHOLAS NOLAN and Thomas Lynch were elected vicars.” The above quote is from Hardiman’s History of Galway.


Three Seventeenth Century Connacht Documents.



DOMINICAN NUNNERY.

“When the town was taken by Cromwell’s forces in 1652, the nuns, with their then vicar, father Gregory O’Ferrall, went to Spain. Two only of the number survived, namely, JULIA[N] NOLAN and Maria Lynch, who returned to Galway in 1686, by direction of John Browne, provincial of the order in Ireland. On their arrival, the former was instituted prioress, and the latter sub-prioress; a house having been provided for them in the town, the community soon increased, and, before the end of two years, was effectually re-established.


In 1698 they were again dispersed. It was most deplorable, says the historian of those melancholy scenes, to witness the cries and tears of these distressed females, by which even their very persecutors were moved to compassion. The convent was converted into a barrack, but the nuns remained secretly in town, amongst their friends, under the direction of their venerable prioress, JULIA[N] NOLAN, who was released by death from all her sufferings, in 1701, at the age of ninety years, and was succeeded by the sub-prioress, Maria Lynch.”

GOODSPEED'S HISTORY OF WASHINGTON CO. TENNESSEE: PART ONE.

"In May, 1788, the Franklin government had ceased to exist, and the courts of Davis were held unmolested. At that time John Hammer, William Pursley, Robert Love and William Moore, commissioners appointed by the preceding General Assembly of North Carolina to select a sight for a prison and stocks, reported that they were of the opinion that Jonesboro was the most convenient place. From this it may be inferred that it had been the intention of the General Assembly to remove the seat of justice from Jonesboro, that place having become obnoxious on account of its adherence to Gov. Sevier. The excitement and ill feeling had somewhat subsided at this time, however, and after hearing the above report, the court ordered that JOHN NOLAN be paid 25 pounds in part for completing the public buildings at Jonesboro."

REGIMENTAL HISTORIES OF TENNESSEE UNITS DURING THE WAR OF 1812.

Colonel THOMAS BENTON.



BRIEF HISTORY: This regiment, along with Colonel William Hall's First Regiment of Tennessee Volunteer Infantry and Colonel John Coffee's Volunteer Cavalry, comprised the army under Andrew Jackson that undertook the expedition to Natchez in late 1812. Many of these men re-enlisted in September 1813 and were then put under the command of Colonel William Pillow, maintaining the same designation of the Second Regiment of Tennessee Volunteer Infantry. See the entry under Colonel William Pillow for further information.


Colonel WILLIAM PILLOW.



BRIEF HISTORY: This regiment, composed of about 400 men, participated in Jackson's first campaign into Creek territory along with the regiment under Colonel Bradley. Both these regiments fought at the Battle of Talladega (9 November 1813) where Colonel Pillow was wounded. An anecdote concerning Pillow at Talladega claimed that Jackson ordered the colonel to fall back once the Creeks attacked, but Pillow refused on the grounds that he would not let his wounded men be "scalped by the demons." Lieutenant Colonel William Martin, who took over the regiment after Pillow was wounded at Talladega, was later at the center of a dispute with Andrew Jackson over the enlistment terms of the regiment.


The line of march would have taken these men from Fayetteville to Huntsville and on to Fort Strother, where the regiment was stationed after the Battle of Talladega.


Colonel NICHOLAS PERKINS.



BRIEF HISTORY: This regiment, along with the regiment under Colonel Higgins, comprised the sixty-day volunteers enlisted by William Carroll to fill the depleted ranks of Jackson's rapidly dwindling army after the first campaign of the Creek War. Although the enlistment terms were short, this regiment saw some of the fiercest action of the Creek War at Emuckfau and Enotochopco (22 and 24 January 1814) where Jackson's army was nearly routed by attacking Creeks.


Captain John Quarles' company was in the center column of the rear guard at Enotochopco and suffered heavy casualties; Quarles himself died at this battle. Colonel Perkins and Lieutenant Colonel Stump were accused of cowardice, disobedience of orders, and abandonment of their posts as a result of the actions at Enotochopco. Perkins was acquitted at his court martial but Stump was found guilty and cashiered out of the army.

MISC. RECORDS WILLIAMSON CO. TN.

Deposition of DAVID NOLEN - 69 years old: 13 Sept 1838, I was one of the commissioners appointed to lay off Wheaton's part of the Fergus land. I showed William Wilkerson the line and corner of the tract. I went with him on horseback near the place, there was brush cut down and I stopped and directed him where to go to the stump that was the stump of the corner tree. George Shannon was one of the men that made the corner. John Wilson showed me a place and tried to make me believe it was his corner. I knowed it was not the corner that we made. I understood Wilkerson and John Wilson had a dispute over the line and ran another line. Wilkerson told me Wilson got further west than the corner. He said he would not dis- pute no more about a little strip of land. I heard Wilson got Oliver Williams to run the other line. The old line was east of a forked poplar that stood near the old shop and, nearly south from a cole house in a flat nearly level piece of ground. George Shannon, James Shannon, Jason Wilson, Arthur Pierce and I were appointed by the court to lay off the Wheaton portion of land. We were sworn as commissioners by Esqr. Thomas Edmondsonn at the corner of Holt's field where we started.



WILLIAMSON COUNTY TENNESSEE WILL BOOK IX, 1848.

WILL OF WILLIAM NOLEN.

The will of William Nolen, Sr., can be found in the County Court in Will Book 9, page 497, and is dated May 2, 1848. It was proven at the June 1850 term of court. He names his son, Stephen, and son-in-law, James Johnson as executors of his will, asking that they see that no one takes advantage of his wife and they are to assist her in taking care of the property willed to her.


Item 1: William Nolen asks that his just debts be paid.


Item 2: He gives to his son John, the storehouse that John built on William's land. (This is the property that is now owned by Alice Burkett) as well as a farm on the east side of the turnpike with all improvements therein.


Item 3: "I wish my beloved wife Sarah Nolen to have and retain during her natural life or widowhood the following property: the tract of land on which I now live with all the appurtenances thereto belonging, also two negro men, Harry and the other of her own selection out of the balance of the negro men, two negro women, Cinda and Cintha, three horses of her own selection, three cows and calves, one yoke of oxen and ox cart, a sufficiency of stock hogs or what pork or fat hogs will be full sufficient for one year's support, all my stock of sheep and fowls of every kind, also, as much corn fodder and oats as will be sufficient to support said family and stock for one year. The above property only given to my wife during her natural life or widowhood and at her death or remarriage, I wish my executor to sell all said property willed as before to my wife on credit of twelve months and the money arising from the sale of the same I wish equally divided between all my children that I will hereinafter name, and in the way that I will state except $100.00 which I wish paid to my wife, Sarah, provided she marries.


Item 4: I wish all the other property and effects of every kind that I may own at my death not willed away to be sold on credit of twelve months and the money arising from said sale of the same to be equally divided among all my children that are living at my death and if dead among their lawful heirs namely: G. L. Nolen, Stephen Nolen, Auslem Nolen, the bodily heirs of Sarah Cantrell to receive her portion, Delia C. King, Frances Johnson, Nancy Stanley, John Nolen, Anna Johnson, Caroline Johnson, Green Nolen, Belinda Nevins, Emily Barnes, Zebulon Nolen, and Sarah Newsom, share and share alike, and as it is my wish and desire that what property I have to give my children that they derive the full benefits of the same. I wish my Executors and I do hereby instruct them not to pay over the amount due to my daughters to any person unless it is a trustee who shall or may be appointed for each one of my daughters and the amount to receive to be paid out to them as trustee may think necessary whose duty it shall be to take receipt for the amount paid said daughter or daughters and in case of the death of any one of said daughters then said amount shall be paid to the lawful heirs of said daughter, this has reference to all property that said daughters leave any interest in belonging to my estate. My object is that my children and the heirs of their body enjoy the benefits of my property, share and share alike, to be my wish and desire.


In the final settlement of this will of William Nolen's in 1852, we find the following thirteen heirs. Mention is made also in the settlement that there were originally fifteen shares. William Nolen Jr., died in 1842 and, therefore, was not one of the original heirs, Following is a list of the recipients and amounts they received from the settlement:


  • Delia King $550.00,
  • John Nolen $550.00,
  • Nancy Stanley $550.00,
  • Green Nolen $550.00,
  • Frances Johnson $557.62,
  • Sarah W. Newsom $550.00,
  • Stephen Nolen $550.00,
  • Anna Johnson $550.00,
  • Zebulon C. Nolen $554.09,
  • Belinda Nevins $559.47,
  • Emily Barnes $550.00,
  • Caroline Johnson $550.00,
  • William H. Cantrell, $275.00, one of the many heirs of Sarah
  • Cantrell who died leaving two children.

This settlement was recorded in Book 10, page 345, under date of 1853.

Review-Appeal, Franklin, Tennessee. October 2, 1967.


The Review-Appeal recently chronicled the death of "Aunt Annie" Johnson, the oldest resident of Williamson County, and in this issue presents an outline of the life of this remarkable lady and her family which will, doubtless, be read with interest.


Annie Simmons Johnson was born February 18, 1805, and died November 20, 1901. She was the daughter of William and Sarah NOLEN, who moved to this state from Virginia in 1797, and settled where the village of Nolensville now stands. The country around was then a dense cane break, inhabited by Indians, the only white neighbors being a mile away. A road was soon cleared to Nashville, which was then in its infancy.


The town of Nolensville was named for this hardy pioneer, who was the first settler thereabouts, and whose, peach orchard was the site of the present prosperous town. The children of the brave pioneer and courageous wife, which at that time numbered seven, when allowed to go out to play, had a bell attached to the neck of the eldest, to guard against Indians and being lost in the cane. Nine more children were born to them, making sixteen in all. Annie NOLEN, one of the younger, was married to Little Berry Johnson September 18, 1824. To them were born four girls, all of whom, with one exception, are living, Mrs. B. D. Johnson, Mrs. Corinne Owen, wife of the late Addison Owen, and Misses Fannie and Sue.

* These marriages are recorded in Lawrence Co. AL. There may have also been a dual registration for these marriages in Lawrence Co. TN. “A good example of why the license may be found also recorded in Lawrence Co. TN is that before Alabama borders were surveyed, it became a state in 1819 and was part of the Mississippi Territory; the Tennessee River was the Northern boundary with Lawrence Co. TN split by the River. The River arches south into Alabama and the surveyed boundary line was straight east and west and what was later north of the river or Tennessee became Limestone Co. AL and Lauderdale Co. AL. Since there was no bridge to cross the river, people on the north side continued to make recordings in Lawrence Co. TN. I was born in Lauderdale Co. AL, My Grandparents resided in Limestone Co. AL but for years received mail into the 1940s addressed to them only with a Tennessee address because the nearest postmaster was then living in Tennessee. He was the only one driving a vehicle that could deliver the mail, which only came one day of the week if the dirt roads were passable, and could cross the creek beds.


Now it is strange to me considering the poor method of travel and poor roads in 1866 that this couple then in Lauderdale Co. AL would travel to Lawrence Co. to marry unless related to Thomas J. Graham. (Yet it is possible that Eliza M. Isbell was residing and attending school at Mount Home (Girls College) on land donated by John Graham and which the former college is still owned by family members many of whom were teachers there.) This might explain why she was in the County, and JAMES GREEN NOLEN who was in the Civil War with both Noel Cherry Graham & John C. Graham (sons of John & Lydia) who died in the War could have visited with the Graham’s and there met her. John Graham was a Tennessee Surveyor as was JAMES NOWLIN. The Orphan Court question implied to me that perhaps Eliza was an orphan born in 1848 or 1849, and that Jesse was her appointed Guardian.”
