    Notes 
    • From "A Genealogy of Stephen Bumgarner 1811-1901":

      Pages 6-9:
      "Rev. JAMES LINVILLE BUMGARNER (7 Oct 1832 - 12 Apr 1921) the eldest child and first son of Stephen and Rebecca, was married 6 Mar 1854 to PHOEBE ANN HINCHER (25 Mar 1835 - 20 Dec 1914) daughter of William and Charlotte Carroll Hincher. William and Charlotte were married in Orange County before moving to Wilkes to live and rear their family.

      Reverend Jim led a busy life. He was a better-than-average farmer, an itenerant preacher of the Methodist faith, and a second lieutenant in the Home Militia during the War Between the States. He also had several avocations with which he occupied his spare time.

      Jim's work week began early Monday morning and continued until Sunday noon. Then he would come in, eat, bathe, dress, and set out on foot to one of his churches, perhaps Poplar Grove or Obids (the latter a fifteen-mile climb up and over the Blue Ridge). Reaching his appointed post, he would spend the night with one of his parishoners, attend to his pastoral duties on Sunday morning, and walk home on Sunday afternoon, to be ready for the farm again on Monday.

      When farm work was slack in winter, Jim used a team of big oxen to haul lumber from Tom Broyhill's mill, in the Miller Creek area, to North Wilkesboro. One of the oxen, Buck, belonged to Jim, and the other belonged to his son-in-law, Tom Cole.

      The choice crop, and one which gave Jim much pride, was the Red Spanish sweet potato. The preparation of the ground, and the harvesting and storing of this crop were major undertakings - too much for the family to do alone. This tribe of Bumgarners did not believe in owning slaves, but they did at times need extra help. So, for this project, Jim hired his favorite hands, Morrison and Delphia McGlamery. In addition to being good workers, they understood how carefully the potatoes had to be handled. They knew that the slightest bruise or break would cause the tubers to spoil, and they acted accordingly. So, spring and fall would usually find the McGlamerys working with Jim in his sweet potato patch. The rich harvest was tenderly stored in the cellar to provide the family with their favorite breakfast of sweet potatoes, ham, and red-eye gravy through the winter, and to share with neighbors and friends who came as guests or cash customers. Before planting time in the spring, the remaining potatoes were taken out of storage and sorted into two lots, one for eating and one for planting. Then, people would come from miles around to purchase seed from Jim's stock.

      Jim's military service began in 1863, when he was commissioned by Governor Zebulon B. Vance as Second Lieutenant in the 68th Battalion of the North Carolina Militia for Home Defense. He served until after the end of the war.

      This, 1863, was a red letter year for tragedy struck the home. An epidemic took the lives of two daughters, Mary and Emily, the second and third of the children. Sixteen years later a diphtheria epidemic took two more. Carrie, the sixth child, and Grant, the seventh died within five days of each other. The three surviving children grew to adulthood, married, and reared large families, giving Jim and Phoebe altogether thirty-four grandchildren. The deceased children were: 1-2 MARY BUMGARNER (1858/1863); 1-3 EMILY BUMGARNER (1860/1863); 1-6 CARRIE E. BUMGARNER (1 Jan 1870/8 Oct 1879); and 1-7 GRANT BUMGARNER (14 July 1872/3 Oct 1879).

      One of Jim's avocations placed his services in demand whenever a male member of the community died. It was Jim who was called upon to bathe, dress, and "lay out" the body before burial. He would do his job while the homemade wooden coffin was being built. Once Jim was on his way to visit a neighbor, Tom Rash, who lived just over the hill, and who had been ill for some time. As he approached, he looked toward the barn and saw Tom leaning against the fence, gazing at his cattle, which he prized. Jim headed in that direction, but when he looked again, Tom had disappeared, so he went on to the house. At the door he was met by a tearful member of the household, who told him that they were about to send for him. Tom had just passed away. Perhaps it was a coincidence that he arrived at that precise moment, but coincidence would hardly explain why he saw Tom at the barn fence.

      Jim's home, like his father's was a haven for the needy. Their grandson, Millard, became a member of the family in 1894, when he needed special care. He grew up with them as their son, and was their principle heir. In the home at one time were two sisters, Myra and Nan Whitworth, who gave and received help as did others. Many were those who partook of this home's generosity and benevolence. Jim and Phoebe hold a place of great respect and worth in the history of Wilkes County."


      From The Heritage of Wilkes County 1982, page 126"

      "JAMES LINVILLE BUMGARNER:
      The Reverend James Linville Bumgarner was the eldest son of Stephen and Rebecca Nichols Bumgarner, born in Wilkes 7 Oct. 1832. He was a farmer and Methodist "circuit rider," or more accurately, circuit "walker." He worked hard on the farm all week, and at noon on Saturday he would come in, eat and dress, and set out on foot to one of the points on his circuit. Arriving there, he would spend the night with one of his parishoners, preach on Sunday morning, and walk back on Sunday afternoon to be ready for the farm on Monday.
      During the war, in 1863, Jim was commissioned by Gov. Zeb Vance as 2nd Lt. in the 68th Battalion of the North Carolina Militia for Home Defense.
      Jim married Phoebe Ann Hincher (1835-1914), daughter of William and Charlotte Carroll Hincher, who were married in Orange County, N.C. in 1827 before coming to Wilkes to live and rear their children, all of whom were born in Wilkes County.
      Of the seven children born to Jim and Phoebe, only three reached maturity. In 1863 an epidemic took the lives of Mary and Emily, and in 1879 a similar tragedy took Carrie and Grant. The eldest, George Washington, married Mary Elizabeth Nichols, and they built a home and lived on land deeded to her by her father, John Wilburn Nichols. Maria married Tom Cole and they built and lived on land deeded to her by her father, downstream and cross Buck Branch from her childhood home. Linville married Bessie Ryan McNiel, and they first lived across the creek and on the hill south of his father's place, but later moved to Wilkesboro where they lived the remainder of their lives.
      Jim's work did not end with farming, preaching, and serving in the Home Guard. In winter he used a team of big oxen to haul lumber from Tom Broyhill's mill in the Millers Creek area to North Wilkesboro. And a community service was to go to the home and bathe, dress, and "lay out" the body whenever a man died.
      He was an expert producer of sweet potatoes, and he grew an abundant crop every year. There were sweet potatoes for the family, for neighbors and friends, and for seed the following year. People would come for miles around to buy seed potatoes in the spring.
