#13 Norma in the Old Days

In the early 1900s, Norma, in Scott County, was a bustling community with several lumber mills although now it barely seems to exist. It fits prominently into the Walker story in the case of Dr. Andrew Calvin Walker, who was a doctor there late in his life and died in 1926. Some locations, from postcards that belonged to him, are included on this page; click any for a larger picture.
Visit: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~edwardbwalker/places/norma.html

INFORMATION FROM DESCENDANTS: John B. Jeffers, and Kizzie Duncan Jeffers, were married April 3, 1904 in Scott Co. Tennessee. John B and Frank Smithers built a two story building in Norma. The Store was downstairs and they called it “Norma Union Store”. Both Families lived upstairs. Apparently it wasn’t profitable enough to sustain two families and John eventually bought Frank’s share. Gradually the store became more successful and they weathered the Depression pretty well. Five of John B and Kizzie’s seven children were raised to adulthood with their primary years over the store. The children were: Dot (Oran Holloway); Tressie Beulah (Virgil Murley); Nevva (Marley Phillips); James Hoyal (Jean Debord); Darel (never married); Dennis (died at age 10); and Jaymon (died at 3 months). Nevva said that her early training in honesty came in this store when her dad (John B.) taught her to use a candy scales. He taught her to look at it straight on so that you didn’t cheat the customer or yourself. Those little white scales have passed down to Nevva’s daughter, Kay Phillips Davis, and are still in her possession. John B. told Nevva on his deathbed that if he ever cheated a man out of a penny he didn’t know it. When John B. retired and moved to Oneida, he sold the store to Kermit and Elwood Sharp and they changed the name to Sharp Brothers Store. Kermit worked the coal mines and Elwood ran the store for about eight years. It must have been about this time that Elwood bought Kermit’s share and it became known as Sharp’s Cash Store, which it remained throughout the years until it burned down.

# 20 - The New River Lumber Company

Photos scanned from “American Lumberman”, April 2, 1910, “Tennessee Hardwoods of the New River Lumber Company, mill at Norma, Tenn. pp.51-74. Document resides at the Museum of Scott County, Scott County High School, Huntsville, TN.

NOTE: This report was written by students of anthropology teacher, Gary Sexton, from Scott H.S. Students names are below.

The New River Lumber Company

As we live in a generation of machinery and technological advances in our society, many forget the once difficult tasks that our ancestors went through. As they faced cold weather with no shelter and the hardships of finding food, many have forgotten exactly where we came from. However, one advancement that was made in lumber production was right here in our own backyard. The New River Lumber Company was responsible for providing many jobs, a logging railroad, and was one of the largest distributors of lumber in the nation. These are some of the details of the company, which have been provided by The American Timberman Magazine from April 2, 1910.

The New River Lumber Company had many mills in the Norma area, which were all very successful at one time. Each of these provided hardwood timber that was often considered "A" grade wood. Their central offices, however, were located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Many of these central offices took care of sells and purchases by and for the company.

The New River Lumber Company had extraordinary and attractive types of hardwood. They were known for having some of the prettiest poplar trees that any lumber company had ever used. There is a record of poplar logs being cut that scaled to an amazing 1,300 bd feet! This is somehow unbelievable to the generation that we are living Ill.

One of the things that the lumber company faced was the diseases and conservation concerns that were new to people in the industry. Many bugs, fungi, and lack of replanting put a major setback upon the industry. Clear cutting techniques also helped in the depletion of the supplies.

#21 - Ova & Ada Pearl (ADKINS) Low (LOWE?) House

From the John Ward and Jodi Briggs photo collection. Visit them on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/ExploringForgottenPlaces/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums

The house is located between the Norma Church and the Norma School, and back in 1960's and 1970's was occupied by a Mr. Ova Low (10 Jun 1889-18 Sep 1973), a brother to Holly Lowe, from Smokey Junction area. Ova's wife, Ada Pearl (ADKINS) Low, was born on 27 Mar 1899 and passed away 16 Nov 1937. Ova's sister, Teshie (LOWE) Kagley, used to live in a small building next to the house or maybe in the same house, I can't remember.
