Gilbert Paper to Be

"Quakers on the Western
Waters" Is Study of North
Carolina Quaker Migration
.Miss Dirothy Gilbert's "Quakers on
tlie Western Waters," n study of tlie
emigration of North Carolina families
from New Garden, Deep River, Center,
and Cane Creek, to Lost Creek and
New Hope in Tennessee in lTSii, is be
ing published in The Eastern Tennessee
Historical I'liblieations next year.
An interesting detail about these
Quakers who moved to Tennessee was
that their home meetings disowned
them because they did not buy their
land from the Indians. The reason for
the "squatting," it turned out later,
was that there were no clear titles to
the land. As soon as the government
bought the land, the settlers paid for
their property and so redeemed them
selves in the eyes of their hometown.
