Account Ledger of Asa Newport, Blacksmith

Asa Newport (1802-1876) was a Minister and Blacksmith. He was the son of Richard Newport and Hannah Hinds. He married Elizabeth Rogers in Rhea County and  eventually bought the Rogers farm and lived there for the rest of his life. The names recorded in this journal reflect people who worked for him, had work done at his blacksmith shop, or owed him money. The people listed could have been residents of Rhea or Roane County since Asa Newport lived on the Roane side of White’s Creek, then moved to the Rhea side of the creek (White’s Creek is the dividing line between Rhea and Roane).

Where dates are listed, they represent a range of time during which folks did business with Mr. Newport and does not necessarily mean they appeared in every year listed.

Two additional notes are listed:. 1) In the journal he made note after the name John Hayes “went to Van Buren, Decalb Co.” 2) after Mary Parkins he entered time spent settling estate of Lewis Parkins, detailed day by day but no year.

    I am seeking to make contact with Mrs. Edna (Sachs) Clack in reference to an email datd 04 Sept 2001 to a Mr. Janes K. Wollard. At the passing of Janes Wollard on 16 Feb 2012 in Spring , TX, his widow, Carla and son David have entrusted me with Jim’s research papers and I am in the process of documenting those. I am editor for an upcoming 4 th edition of Mr. Janes K. Wollard’s book “The Woollard, Woolard and Wollards of N America.” She, Mrs Sachs mentioned a collection of old papers of a W. B. Sachs, her uncle.

      Hi Sylvester,

      We don’t have any current contact information for Edna. Have you by any chance had the opportunity to check the book to see if it has the information you are seeking?
