  • Note:
    ELIZA JANE "Liza" GREEN and GENERAL GATES McMAHAN were my maternal
    great-grandparents.

    ELIZA JANE GREEN was referred to as ELIZA JANE CANNE in one of her
    daughters Obituaries. I'm told the birth-father was either JOHN PARRISH
    or ANDREW WATKINS / WATSON. Her mother JANE GREEN was living with WATKINS
    while pregnant with ELIZA. I have reason to believe that ELIZA's birth
    father was actually WILLIAM PENDLETON HYDE (he was living just down the
    road in 1880). I'm told, though, that there were many other men involved
    and each child had a different father, so, I currently do not definately
    know who her daddy was. Maybe even she didn't know. Bastardy Bonds for
    1879-1881 were destroyed in a Swain County, NC courthouse fire.

    On June 1st, 1900, ELIZA "Liza" GREEN was a Servant for THOMAS and LAURA
    JENKINS in the Oconaluftee "Oconee Lufty Township", Swain Co, NC Federal
    Census. Also living there as a Servant was DAVID F. EDWARDS (age 16, b:
    June 1883 NC). ELIZA GREEN was not too far from where GENERAL GATES
    McMAHAN and first batch of children lived.

    ELIZA JANE "Liza" GREEN was not married before GENERAL GATES McMAHAN as
    was previously rumoured. North Carolina Marriage License :: "ELIZA GREEN,
    single, age 21, of Oconaluftee married G. G. McMAHAN, age 33" also of
    Oconaluftee, son of JOHN McMAHAN of Jackson County, on 13 March 1902 in
    Swain County, North Carolina. Swain County borders Jackson County and
    was actually formed from Jackson and Macon for political reasons
    involving the Cherokee Indians. Oconaluftee, sometimes spelled
    "Oconoluftee" or "Ocona Lufee" and referred to as "Luftee", was on the
    Jackson / Swain line and was where the present day Indian Reservation and
    entrance to the Great Smokies National Park lies today.
