  • Note: The following is taken from 'Harman Genealogy with Biographical Sketches'. Samuel HIX was the first to settle in Watauga County, North Carolina. He owned all of Valle Crucis and was there during the Revolutionary War. He concealed himself in his shanty, which he pointed out as his 'improvement'. Later, he sold Valle Crucis 'for a rifle, a dog and a sheepskin to Benjamin WARD', who sold it to Reuben MAST. Samuel then got land at the mouth of Cove Creek, but Ward also got this and sold it to a man named SUMMERS. SUMMERS, his wife and five children, were drowned one night in a freshet of Watauga River called the 'Summer Fresh'. In 1816, Samuel HIX obtained 126 acres. His gravestone is below St. Judes Post Office a quarter of a mile below Antioch Baptist Church. He seemed not to be reconciled to the American Government and continued to hide during the day, only going home at dark for supplies. His five sons were mischievious, and delighted in frightening him.
