In Reply to: My Haywood County lineages by Becky Howell of 1076

WC Allen`s Book "Annuls of Haywood Co." was all written from the information submitted by sponsors. If no sponsor, then there was no information in the book on that family.
WC Allen was the Supt. of Schools there in Haywood Co. N.C. as my mother was in grade school, and was a very well educated, and admired in that day....
My Grandmother Sarah Elizabeth Queen Reeves`s brother, the Solicitor of Haywood Co., Uncle John Montraval Queen III, was the Solicitor at the time, and was the contributor for the Queen Family....Many famlies such as my "Old Family to Haywood C. from over in Buncombe`s Sandy Mush Area, did not have a contributor, so therefore did not get in the book....
I can assure you that the information in the WC Allen`s book was the best there was in the day. I have been able to get back in my Reeves; Queen; Noland; Garrett; Ratcliff; Ferguson; Stringfield; Love; Howell; Plott; and et. al. , and have added to, the information, that was given originally to WC Allen`s Genealogy: Annuals of Haywood....If you had started cold , as I did, I would have not gotten as far and full as I have been able to get...I highly reccomend the Book...of which I have my Uncle Tom Reeves, the "Traffic Mananger" for Champion of Canton, for many years, and buried there in the Reeves Cemetery there in the middle of the "Road Rage Traffic Cloverleaf" at Lake Junaluska, N.C.....Great Book, he had given his oldest of the Klan of Reeves....and she gave me: Opal Louise Reeves Howard....Hope this helps: Dr. Roland J. Howard, Hampstead, N.C. since 1762.....
