"Old Buncombe County Heritage Book" Family No. 578 - Aaron
Among the early settlery in the Valley of the Toe River was Aaron Thomas (born 1770-1782; died about 1889), who married Elizabaeth Huntsinger (Huntsucker, born 1775-1781; died about 186?) and lived on Roses Branch (present Yancey County). In the 1850 census he lists his place of birth as Georgia, but in 1860 as SC. This difference apparently reflects the controversy that arose between these two states and NC concerning mutual borders, out of which rose Walton Co., GA (formerly SC). This lead to the so-called "Georgia War" (a legal struggle which reached the U.S. Congress) and the ultimate transfer of the area to Buncombe Co., NC.
When the Thomas family settled on Roses Branch, it was still unbroken wilderness. It is related that as Mrs. Thomas was doing family wash in the front yard one day, she noticed a movement in the thicket nearby. Looking more closely, she spied a number of Indians keeping watch on her.
