Hight Family
Posted by: Kim Richards (ID *****5730) Date: July 06, 2012 at 15:27:05

Hi Forum Members!

I am looking for information on the Hight Family.

Wiley Gilbert HIGHT 1786 1868
Olive Harris BAKER 1797 1874

had the following children

Richard HIGHT 1816
John Fielding HIGHT 1818 1876
William Baker HIGHT 1821 1868
Thomas Gilbert HIGHT 1823 1870
Stephen Decatur HIGHT 1826 1904
James Lawrence Hight 1830 1909
Oliver Wiatt HIGHT 1832

I have been following this line from James Lawrence Hight. James was married to Sarah Thompson in 1871. This is what I know: he was a large landowner in GA and was well known in the community. He may have had some relationship with the Cherokee Walkingstick family, though I am not sure what that relationship was. If he was involved in the removal of the Cherokees, if he was married to a Cherokee, if he held a Walkingstick as a servant or slave? He had the following sons:

Stonewall Jackson
James L Jr.

James Jr. - died young
Emmett - created quite a few scandals in his lifetime
Stonewall - I know nothing of, but I want to try to find out more about his life.

Anyone help advice or help would be appreciated
