Macro view of the cemetery and church taken February 2017 --bbpytel.  The flag marks the grave of David Jonathan White (1840-1928), plot #268, Unicoi Co. surveyor and Methodist Minister.  He is my great grandfather and the website is dedicated to him and his descendants.

 

DIRECTIONS: Also known as the Fishery Community Church "FCC" Cemetery, is located north of downtown Erwin off Main Street past the U.S. Fish Hatchery.  Take I-26 towards Asheville, NC and exit Main Street, Erwin.  At the top of the ramp, make a left; go over the interstate and at the traffic light, make a left onto Main Street. Continue on Main Street for 8/10 of a mile passing the fish hatchery and shortly thereafter, make a left onto Brown Road.  There is a sign on the corner of Brown and Main Streets for the Fishery Community Church.  Proceed up the hill on Brown Road and on the left, you will see the cemetery and church.  Parking is ample and the cemetery is well taken care of.  There is an info box with handouts of the cemetery including a map and a corresponding roster Veterans interred.

HISTORY: Originally called The Fishery Church (pictured on left), the chapel was established in 1906 as a nondenominational house of worship.  The land upon which the church and cemetery rest was donated by two brothers, Robert Tapp and Thomas M. Tapp [#364a] with a stipulation in the deed that the property be used for worship, education or other activities that will enhance the community.  The timber used to build the original church came from the "Dark Hollow" section of the Unaka Mountains including hardwoods of Hickory, Maple Oak, Cherry, Beech.  The one room structure had a wood stove in the center for heating and kerosene lanterns on the walls and ceiling for lighting.  The trustees from diverse faiths who oversaw the construction were:  Henry Banner, Alexander Jones, Robert and Thomas Tapp and Jacob Woodward; three were Christian, one Methodist and one Baptist.  The church lived up to its promise serving as a house of worship, a place for education and a polling station for voting.  Rev. Frank Tittle (in adjacent photo), a Methodist Circuit Minister for Washington and Carter Co., Tennessee, was the first to hold a service and continued services once a month allowing for other ministers of various denominations (i.e. Baptist, Christian, Holiness, Free Will) to preach such as:  Roy Brown, J. W. Colbert, I. G. Crowder, Rev. February, Pastor Fischer, Ms. Fannie Garber, Michael Hutson, Robert Kagen, Harry Leonard, Roy Lingerfelt, Leno Lyle, Francis Radford, George Richardson, Ms. Silvers, Rev. Shemp, Rev. Trent, Rev. Vandergriff, Rev. David White.   Wade Ambrose (plot #5a) was a long term trustee and in 1934 oversaw a major endeavor to have a basement installed under the church which required blasting through limestone rock.  Other improvements through the years included: in 1956 adding rooms to the front and back for Sunday school and a church office; 1968 installing indoor plumbing for bathrooms; 1979 construction of a two story fellowship hall; 1992 modernizing the HVAC system.  Other notable Trustees were:  Doug Allen, Harley Allen, Clyde Brown, Alvin Haun, H. A. Jones, Grady Ledford, Sye Lyle, Ike Tapp, Larry Tittle, Ronald Webb.  In the early 1960s, Reverends Bob Ambler, Bill Booth, and Alvin Hinkle alternated Sunday services. In 1967, Pastor Bill Booth was voted in as a full time preacher and served through September 1970 when he retired to be replaced by Pastor Bob Ambler.  Known as "Uncle Bob" for his dedicated outreach to children, Pastor Ambler served until July 1986.  Rev. David R. Lyle was his replacement and continued his pastoral duties in the tradition of his predecessor.

 

Many of Erwin's (Greasy Cove) early settlers are interred here (see section III.)  Part of the graveyard used to be the Brown Family Cemetery [see plot #259], however, over time, it became the Fishery Union Cemetery.  This area was formally known as Swinglesville during the 1880 census, but after the establishment of the Erwin National Fish Hatchery in 1906, the area and church were referred as "Fishery".  This is an active cemetery and well taken care of.  There are numerous unmarked graves based on death certificates which I have placed in familiar relationships based on available information.  Birth or death dates may differ from death certificates. When you arrive at the cemetery, do check out the info box (left photo) which has a roster of the interred with a corresponding map.  Email me if you have any questions/corrections or would like your photos/info posted.

 

I give special thanks to the late J. Harold Rice (1945-2019 plot 1c), the former caretaker of the cemetery who contributed information and updates for this site for several years.  The initial survey was conducted on Sept. 13, 2008.  I provide continual updates to this page.

5)  Phoebe Ann (1850-1918) md. Dr. Henry C. Banner buried Martins Creek]

NOTE: * Per the writings of her son, DJ, he states Margaret died in 1854 shortly after her father died.  It is unknown of the name of Margaret's husband or companion and there is no mention of a father's name on any of her 5 children's death certificates.  In the 1840 Washington Co., TN census, it is most likely she and her daughter Mary Ann (age 1) and DJ (just born) were living with her older sister Mary White-Honeycutt and family as the age groups make a good fit.  She is not found in the 1850 census for Washington Co., TN nor the adjacent counties.  It's presumed she is living in Washington Co. because her daughter Phoebe was just born.  Margaret's widowed father age 80, was noted in the Washington Co., TN 1850 census living with his children from his first and second marriages.  Margaret somehow became acquainted with the wealthy plantation owner Rev. and Dr. Alexander Nelson Harris who lived about 12 miles north from Greasy Cove on Little Cherokee River outside of Jonesboro.  In 1854 shortly before she died, she allowed DJ to live with him and be "bounded" to him until he was 21. She died in 1854 and he moves on the Harris Plantation in February 1855.   Her stone is at the foot of the tree which was placed by descendant Brenda White-Shaw.     photo - bbpytel

b. January 15, 1840 - d. June 10, 1928

[s/o unknown and Margaret White #267; married Martha Garland on Dec. 24, 1873]

MINI BIO:  "DJ" White was prominent county surveyor who helped define the official boundaries of Unicoi County. David (known as DJ) was born on January 15, 1840, in the Greasy Cove area of Old Washington Co., [now Unicoi], Tennessee. He was the son of Margaret White and [unknown father] and the grandson of John White [b.1771] and his first wife, Margaret Odell [1785] of the Greasy Cove area on the Indian Creek, Washington Co., TN. DJ's mother, Margaret, was a widow in 1850 and she and her children resumed her maiden name. Times were hard and Margaret struggled to raise 5 children on her own.  Margaret agreed that DJ [age 14] move to Jonesborough to live on the Harris plantation. On February 5, 1855, at age 14, DJ moves in with the Harris'.  The Harris' were a well to do family with a huge tract of land with a staff of servants and slaves. Dr. Alexander Nelson Harris [s/o Rev. War veteran Benjamin Harris and Jane Crampton] was a physician and Methodist minister and had a son named Nathaniel Edwin Harris [who later became the Governor of Georgia from 1915-1917 and founder of GA Tech University]. He was 6 years younger than DJ. Nathaniel writes in his autobiography that his father worked out an arrangement with widow Margaret to raise and educate DJ as if he were officially bound to him in accordance to State law. He also agreed, that at the age of 21, DJ would receive a horse, furniture and other household items of his choice to get him started on his own. Living with the Harris' for 6 1/2 years, DJ played a major role and influence in Nathaniel's life. In addition to being a voracious reader and quick study, DJ would also work on the plantation along with the staff. Nathaniel writes in his memoirs, "DJ awoke within me the ambition to succeed which followed me the remainder of my days." When DJ left the plantation on or about 1862, the Civil War was manifesting; the Harris' were Confederate sympathizers. During the war, DJ was conscripted for 15 months through April 1864 to work at the Embreeville Iron mine (also known as the Confederate Iron Works) that was purchased by General Duff Green. This ore was used for confederate cannon balls. After the war, he traveled to Indiana for a time where his sister lived, and then returned to his hometown serving as a school teacher. After 1870, he became a surveyor for Washington County.  In 1875, Unicoi County was carved out of Washington and Carter counties and DJ played a major role in the layout of Erwin and defining the official county boundaries and NC - TN state lines. DJ owned a farm in the Fishery area of Unicoi Co. Later in life, he became county Magistrate adjudicating marriages and a traveling Methodist Preacher. On December 25, 1873, DJ married Martha C. Garland [d/o Hampton Crissenberry Garland and Jane Elizabeth Burleson of Red Hill, Mitchell Co., NC]. DJ and Martha had 8 children; he and Martha are buried in Fishery Union Church Cemetery, Unicoi Co., TN next to his mother Margaret White. DJ kept many journals of his work and life experiences. He craved knowledge and spent a lifetime learning. He said, "Books became an idol to me. I esteemed time as precious."   ---bbpytel

w/o Vincent Tapp #289 - married August 19, 1893; child: Frank F. Tapp;  Sada is also the mother of Mollie White]

NOTE:  Unicoi Co. Death Cert #480 - died of "Pneumonia" at age 67 years; widow;  Informant  brother David J. White; buried in "Fishery Cem."

Sada married Civil War Veteran, Vincent Tapp, on August 19, 1893, in Unicoi Co., Tennessee.  Before she married Vincent, she had two daughters out of wedlock.   Her first was Mollie Click born in 1862 (father is noted as "Roy Click" on death cert) and Mollie married Robert A. Hampton.  The second daughter was Julia Ann through a brief relationship with James Erasmus "Ras" Click. Julia married Jonathan Nathan Hicks and they lived nearby to help take care of Sada and Vincent.  In 1910, Vincent’s health was declining fast, bed ridden and thus applied (with the assistance of Jonathan Hicks) to the pension board for an increase in pay. In October of 1910, Jonathan offered testimony as a witness to the Pension Board of his wife's stepfather's poor health and in need of constant care of a nurse to support the application for an increase. Vincent died on May 3, 1911, at which time Sada received a widow’s pension of $12 a month. In 1913, Sada transferred her assets over to Jonathan most likely as payment for his help with the pension board and the added expense of nursing care provided by her daughter/ his wife. On April 20, 1915, Sada died of pneumonia and was dropped from the pension. On May 3, 1915, Jonathan Hicks requested from the Pension board reimbursement for burial expenses and provided sworn testimony that Sada had no child under 16, left no property or money and that she gave her property over to her children two years ago (around 1913).
