CSA Reunion Encampment
Confederate Veterans Reunion, year unknown. Noah FRADY is indicated by the arrow seated towards the middle of the group. One of his brothers, either Lonie or Sam, is seated front row left. This medal he brought back from an encampment in Chatanooga, Tenn. in 1913.

Confederate Badge
Pvt. Noah Frady Leads the Parade
Private Noah L FRADY, CSA leading an Old Hickory Division reunion parade (30th Infantry Division, U. S. Army) on 28 September 1920 on Patton Avenue in Asheville, NC. The image is adapted from a photographic print in family hands. The negative is held in the E.M. Ball Photographic Collection (1918-1969), D.H. Ramsey Library, Special Collections, University of North Carolina at Asheville. The online listing of the contents of the Otis J. Clontz Collection, in the same library, names copies of The Asheville Times covering the reunion which establishes the date.

(Larry's aunts, uncle, and father)

Mable on the left, Max on the right, about 1910. They were born 1 April 1908. It is told that proud Daddy, Bud, had a hard time convincing the people around Skyland and Limestone Township that Etta had delivered twins on April Fools' Day.

About 1953 in Wise, Virginia, Mable and Max. Mable married Clyde GASPERSON of Buncombe County; and they had Clyde Jr., Lucille, Audrey, David, Cecily, and Beth. Max married Margaret CARTER of Johnston County; and they had Lawrence (Larry).

Lanning House 1 Lanning House 2
In 1776, according to his pension records, the nineteen year-old John Lanning (Larry's Great-great-great-great-grandfather) of Rowan County, became a private in General Rutherford's campaign against the Cherokees. The troops scaled the east face of the Blue Ridge and crossed through Swannanoa Gap and proceeded westward down the Swannanoa River. I like to believe that John was part of a scouting party that explored up Gashes Creek, through Minehole Gap, and down Gap Creek into the Cane Creek Valley; because after he was back home from South Carolina with General Lincoln and finished with the war and the new state of North Carolina had opened the lands to settlement, John along with his wife, children, mother-in-law, and other family members picked up their belongings in Rowan County and moved beyond the Blue Ridge to Buncombe County, where they settled along Gap Creek, a Cane Creek tributary.

These log structures are located at the intersection of Emmas Grove and Gap Creek Roads in Buncombe County, North Carolina on land formerly owned by John Lanning Sr. They were probably built and used by his son John Jr.
