Yes, I believe that the Cynthia born in Haywood County is the same Cynthia who goes to Cherokee, Union, and then Fannin Counties. David Shuler appears to be there in Haywood County, NC, with his brothers George Jr. and Jacob. Emmanuel Shuler was there in 1820. These are most likely the sons of George Shuler Sr. of Pendleton, SC. "Cinthy" and "Martha" appear on the Cherokee County 1850 census (Margarette is "Margarette M. Shuler" on at least 3 deed transactions that I have, possibly the "M" is for Martha?) Their ages match the Cynthia and Margarett in 1870. On the 1830 and 1840 Cherokee census, there appears to be a male child. George W. Shuler (who my grandfather wrote as his great-uncle, and Margarett's brother.) matches the age of that child. George W. Shuler also calls Persimmon Creek, Cherokee County, his home before Union County on his Civil War Military records.
Also, my grandfather wrote that David Shuler was the father of Margarett, so I believe we have the right family. This would not be the David Shuler who lives 2 doors down in Fannin County, however.
After 1870 Cynthia was a member of a church in Union County, and then transferred to the Toccoa Baptist church in Fannin County, according to a descendent of hers. One of her daughters had 12 children, so she has many descendants.
I have deeds of Margarett to William Jackson Shuler (with George W. Shuler as a witness)from the 1880's that I could share with you if you want. I know nothing past 1884.
As you know, the parentage of Jack Shuler has been a tough one to pin down, but I think the William Jackson Hood connection is very strong. Hood was apparently friends with George since childhood, according to an affidavit that I have. Other than that, I don't have any good leads for you. Snooping around in the Towns County Courthouse might bring some results...Also, church records..
Let me know what you think,
