204  Edward Small, who came to America about 1632, was probably from Dartmouth, or some other point in Devonshire, England, where the family has long been one of high character and position. He is said to have come under the auspices of his kinsman, Sir Ferdinando Gorges. He, with Champernown and others, founded Piscataqua, which was afterwards divided into the Maine towns of Kittery, Eliot, South Berwick, and Berwick. Edward Small was at the first general court at Saco in 1640, also member of the grand jury the same year. His name was entered on the list as "Edward Small, gent." We find him at old Falmouth, Maine, in 1640; a magistrate there in 1645; and that afterwards he was at the Isle of Shoals. He was one of the magistrates of the general court held at Saco, October 21, 1645. He seems to have built a house in Piscataqua before 1643, as the grant of one hundred acres made to him July 25, 1643, by Thomas Gorges, deputy governor of the Province of Maine (in behalf of Sir Ferdinando Gorges Kt. Ld., proprietor of said province) was specified as "lying between two crickes of each side of the house of the said Edward Small, and so backward to Sturgeon Crick," five shillings yearly being payment for the same. Five years later, June 23, 1647, Edward Small sold this tract of land and "my dwelling house field" to Antipus Maverick, for forty-five pounds. No mention of wife or children is found in any deed or record. The last mention we find of him is in the Isle of Shoals, in 1653. He probably returned to England. SMALL, Edward (I17371)

During the war he ser ved faithfully and loyally as a Confederate Soldier. After th e final s urrender he returned home to take up the threads of civil existence. Mr . McKaughan w as a very prosperous farmer for many years, and still own s a very large and handsome estate.

He was born in Guilford County, North Carolina August 26, 1837. His gra ndfather McKaughan, o f Scotch ancestry, reared his family in Guilford C ounty. In the early years of the last centu ry, he was determined to se ek a home in the new country then opening to American settlers i n that p art of the Dominion of Mexico known as Texas. It was such an adventure a s many pionee rs were willing to engage in at a risk of considerable pe rsonal danger. His son, Archibald, r eceived from him a letter written a t Natchitoches, Louisana, the border of Texas, and soon af terwards the re came a notice to the effect that Hugh McKaughan was dead. Hugh marri ed Phoeb e Pope who survived her husband many years and died at the hom e of her son, Forrester, in Gui lford County.

Archibald McKaughan, father of Isaac H., was born in Guilford County, N orth Carolina, 15 Dece mber 1808. He grew up in country surroundings an d lived in Guilford County until 1839, when h e moved to Stokes County. S ettling near Freidland, now Forsyth County, he became a general fa rmer , and he remained in that county an honored and useful citizen, until h is death in 1879 . He married Mary Welch. She was born in Guilford Coun ty February 3, 1810. Her father, Isaa c Welch, was a native of the same c ounty, and her grandfather, William Welch, was also a farm er who spent h is last years in Guilford County. The Welch settlement is about three o r four m iles from High Point. Isaac Welch, married Martha Paine, who w as probably a life long residen t of Guilford County. Mrs Archibald McK aughan died January 26, 1877. Her six children were: W illiam, Isaac H. , Richard, Charlotte, Phoebe Jane and John.

Isaac Harrison McKaughan grew up in Stokes County on his father's farm. W hen he was 19 year s of age, he started for South Carolina for the purp ose of selling tobacco. He hired a team f rom his Uncle and bought a st ock of tobacco from N.D. Sullivan. As a tobacco peddler he did c onside rable business, and was in South Carolina until 1862. In the spring of t hat year he enr olled in the Clemons Company and was attached to the Se venth Confederate Regiment under Colon el Clayburn. He was subsequently t ransferred to the Sixteenth North Carolina Battalion. Thi s service too k him all over the great battlefields of Virginia, and while constantly o n dut y and ever ready for the hazards and fortune of a soldier's life, h e suffered neither sicknes s or wounds or capture and was with his comm and until the surrender at Appomattex. He and six teen of his commrades w ere able to retain their horses, and they rode home and were paroled a t G reenboro.

Bravely facing the conditions of life in a devastated country, he at on ce rented a tract of l and in Abbott's Creek Township and spent the spr ing and summer farming. The rest of the yea r he was again a tobacco sa lesman in South Carolina. In 1869 Mr. McKaughan bought a tract o f land i n Abbott's Creek Township and was

Steadily engaged in farming there until 1876. In that year he sold his f arm and moved to Kern ersville. He is first purchase of land there was f ifty acres close to the town, and in 1884 h e bought a lot in the villa ge and erected a commodious brick house, where he has since lived .

He continued to invest in lan d until he had upwards to 350 ac res and has financial independence that enables him to live a nd take l ife leisurely.

Mr McKaughan was married in 1864 to Esther Robertson. She was born five m iles south of Kerner sville October 6, 1939, daughter of William Haley a nd Mahala Robertson. They were happily mar ried for thirty-four years u ntil her death on May 20, 1898.
