Catawba County Wills and Estates


Lake Catawba Catawba County, North Carolina was established from Lincoln County in 1842 and was named after the Catawba Indians who settled the area. During the 1700s, however, German Lutheran farmers brought in their families to set down roots for subsequent generations. Some of the earliest settlers were the Sherrills, Sigmans, Clines, Bost, Yoder, Yount, Fulbright, Robinson, Whitener, Ramsour and Hawn families. The county seat is Newton, North Carolina

The Catawba Grape
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
The origins of the Catawba grape is believed to have been cultivated by native tribes along the river and territory occupied by the Catawba Indians. It is certainly one of the first native American grapes used in wine production and during the early 19th century was a popular grape for the wine industry. The fruit is agreeable to the palate, for jam, jelly or juice. Probably the most remembered is Nicholas Longworth of Cincinnati who founded the first successful winery in America. Longworth purchased Catawba cuttings and planted a vineyard along the Ohio River.

Catawba Grape

Longworth accidentally stumbled upon the sparkling wine production similar to the wines of Champagne. During the 1830s and 1850s, the Longworth sparkling Catawba was being distributed from California to Europe.
