My CATHEY, BLALOCK, CAMPBELL,DAVIS and RICE Ancestors were all from Buncombe County. The CATHEY was George B. CATHEY, Wife Sarah RICE, (dau. of Spencer RICE). Their Daughters, Elizabeth Lucinda "Cindy" and Sarah Cathey married Blalock Brothers, James Madison and William Blalock. Later moved to Union County, Georgia. My Great Grandfather, Wilson Bartow Davis, married Sarah Lucinda Blalock, dau. of James Madison and Elizabeth Lucinda (Cathey) Blalock, (she was his cousin). Wilson Bartow Davis' mother was Hannah Campbell.
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Mary M. Chambless

I am sorry, Ellen, but I cannot help you. My DAVIS family did not leave Buncombe County, for Union County, Georgia until about 1848. Please Read the Union County Ceneus for 1850/ Almost half of the population of that county was from North Carolina. That census and others for Union County are on line. Buncombe County, North Carolina has always been said to have been our ancestral home. Mary M. Chambless

Surnames: Cathey, Mathis
My great great grandparent's were John Harlin Mathis and Sarah Haseltine Cathey from Jackson county. Her parent's were Jame's N. Cathey and Elizabeth Brown from Bucombe county I think. Is there any connection?

Dear Regina, I looked up James N. CATHEY in the 900-page book, "The DEVER & Related Families," by Penny & O. D. LINDER, McClain Printing Co., 212 Main St., Parsons, WV 26287, 1998. On p. 172 I found "...CATHEY..."James Newton, b. Dec. 4 1847, in Ark.; d. Nov. 13, 1906 in Calif.; never m." But there are 22 other CATHEY'S in the book too.

I have extensive info on a store owned by a Colonel Joseph Cathey in the Pigeon River Valley at Silver Bluff and a good bit of history on Cathey in general rather by accident from researching my mother's Burnette family who purchased their goods from the store, worked at the mill etc...
The Cathey's may have originated in Buncombe but the store and mill were in Haywood Co. Do let me know if this is of any interest.

All best, Jennie King
