1/25/2015  Making progress collecting photos and data for Jacob and Harriet Fisher King's album.  Kathy Orta included in her core kit, the word Remember.  I can not decide if that will be the name of the album or something else.  The album will hold more than Jacob and Harriet.  The album is so large I will continue with Dorothy Viola Vivian King Webb (daughter of Jacob and Harriet) and then Elmer Columbus Webb (son of D. Viola). This is going to be a great album for Jacob is a very colorful person.  If I was talented, I would write a book using him as the main character.  He fought with the NC 25th Reg, CSA through some of the bloodiest battles of the war; after the war, he moved his family to Arkansas.  He became licensed as a teacher and music teacher, became a Baptist leader, helping to organize several churches.  He was an organizing member of the Free Masons in Stone co.  His four sons became: lawyer, teacher, Baptist minister and physician.  His younger daughters attended two year Mountain Home College.  All of this in a very poor mountainous region of the Ozark Mountains.
