      Bob Jones, "Jacob Shook, The Man and His Legacy: Chapter III Jacob Shook, The Pioneer"

      "The original land grants on Lyles creek record the owners, Johan Baum in 1750 was the first recorded, Simon Yonoss (Jonas) and Hinrich Shrink, Phillip Hahn, Conrod Mull, Conrad Boobey and Johann Hagins appear soon after.

      Then in 1753 the German United Brethren or Moravians purchased a huge tract of land in Lord Granville’s district, location undefined. They set out to determine the land they would select and brought a small team of surveyors across the Catawba to "look for the land". As guide they hired Johann Baum. Being duly impressed with the area between the South Fork of the Catawba and the Catawba proper they decided that this area, which included Lyle’s Creek, would be an ideal spot for their projected colony. John Carteret, Lord Granville set aside this huge parcel, as well as several others, for the Moravians and ceased to sell land there late in 1753.

      For ten years the land lay under this reserve. The Moravians decided to place their colony at a less remote area which is today Forsyth County, NC in 1755, but the restriction still remained on the Catawba lands until 1763.

      In that year the land was released and it seems that many German settlers had been living on the land in question without deed for up to ten years. In 1763 many of them came to the Land Office in Rowan County at Salisbury, a two-day walk away from home, and registered their claims.

      The surnames from Lyle’s Creek include Henry Pope, George Schmidt (Smith), Jacob Wissenaut, Adam Aker (Eckard), Adam Bolch, Thomas Cowan, Peter Grunt, Michael Hart, Johan Haun, Andrew Killian, Isaac Lowrance, Peter Stutz, Christian Treffelstadt, Conrad, Joseph and William Whittenburg and William Fulbright. . . .

      Then in late 1763 John Carteret, Lord Granville, died and his heirs in England closed the sale of his lands. It was 1778, 15 years later, before the office would open again, and many, many Germans had come to live on the unclaimed lands by then. In December 1778 8,900 acres were registered in Salisbury on Lyle’s Creek alone. Among these names we find Christopher Beekman (Jacob’s Capitan in the Cross Creek Campaign) Adam Bolick, George, Peter and William Deal, George Eslinger, Peter Gront, Frederick Gross, Devault Hunsucker, Johann Isonhower, Frederick Shull, Andrew Fulbright and . . . Johann (Hans) and Jacob Shuke (Shook). In that year Jacob was 29 years old."

    "SW portion of Lincoln/Burke County Land Grants

    From the NW portion of current Catawba County and extending into the area of current Connelly Springs, in Burke County was property owned by Joseph Berry and his extended family. Eastward to the area of Conover, was the property of Devault Hunsucker. On a southward line is the SE boundary of the map, near present East Maiden. The properties westward were the the lands that were first settled in Catawba County. They lie at the juncture of Jacob Fork and the Henry River--the point at which the South fork of the Catawba River begins. This is the geographic center of those who settled in the land, "West of the Catawba."
