MEDRIC TROY BELL MARRIED JESSIE LUTHER NOE

SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

 

MEDRIC TROY BELL'S Dad's side--THE BELL'S

     2.  Robert Bell, b. 1759 (oldest child of John and Margaret Bell) married Keziah and had 6 children.
          (Robert was a Revolutionary War soldier, he was drafted a month or so after its onset, his
          Revolutionary War Records are in the National Archives in Washington, D.C.)
         3.  John Bell d. 1839/40 (oldest child of Robert and Keziah) married Mary Vineyard in Oct 1818

                        on the fact Charles father was 50 years of age when he was born, I am assuming his

                       Charles first married Atlanta Betrice Keathley b. 2/1/1889, d. 5/12/1925 (She is the

MEDRIC'S MOTHER SIDE-THE CAMPBELLS

 Her father is Charles Campbell, her grandfather is Campbell bell, through the Campbells of Scotland and direct decent of William I the conquer, King of England; King Henry I of England and Kings Robert I, II, and III of Scotland

MEDRIC'S MOTHER'S SIDE -  THE KEATHLY'S
1.  Henry Keathley b. 1793 (Spelled "KEATHLY" in the 1820 census) married Sarah b. 1797. and resided in White County, TN. They had 10   Children (Note: The Keathley clan came from England; however, it is not known which of Henry's forefathers or he himself came          from England)
  
     2,  William Keathley, b. 1830, d. 1905. Born and buried in White Co, TN. (The 1860 White County Census has him being born in Indiana and being 27 years of age--placing his birth year as 1833, however in the 1880 census, he and his mother and father are listed    as being Tennessee born and he was at the age of 53, which would place his year of birth at 1827. Although there are other               William Keathleys in White County, these two were listed with exactly same family members. He Married 1: Rosea A....?                      1837, married   2: Alie Mahala Swindle b. 1853 on 4/20/1867. William had 11 children. William and his older brother were Civil War soldiers and fought with the Co I and Co D of the 13th Calvary Brigade at Duncan's Field near Shiloh Church on April 6, 1862 and during this skirmish that William was almost fatally wounded after he got caught in a close place and made a run for it and hid behind a brick church building---which was hit by a 24-pound mortar shell---thereby knocking a brick loose and hitting him in the forehead. William, after the war was visiting a relative across the Caney Fork River from his home in White County, TN. During his visit, which would have been normal in that time, to have been a number of days of visiting events such as that only took place vary rarely, heavy rains up river took place---hence, swelling the rivers torrents. When he went to return home, the ferry operator was not home, which left William to wade the river with his horse. The relatives of William with whom he visited had assumed he had reached home and the relatives at home never knew he had left to return home, so, about three days later, his body was found down river, clutched to a log with a portion of his face eaten by turtles.
4.  James Armstrong Keathley b. 8/12/1861 d. 7/29/1927 (5th child of Willam Keathly and Rosea A
(?)) born in White County TN married Eleanor Ordelia Brown b. 2/30/1865, d. 7/20/1958and had 6

                                                             Thomas Lincoln

                                                                     Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

*1. There is long standing controversy regarding  Nancy Hanks Lincoln 's heritage.. A recent mitochondrial DNA test of descendants of daughters of Joseph Hanks, daughters of Lucy Hanks Sparrow, and two Shipley sisters show a match between Hanks and Sparrow and no match to the Shipleys, making it very likely Nancy Hanks is the illegitimate daughter of Lucy Hanks.[4] Information from the Shipley and Berry families, as well as some historical sites, claim that Nancy 's mother was Lucy or Lucey Shipley, sister to Rachel Shipley Berry . Nancy 's father may have been James Hanks  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Hanks_Lincoln_heritage

*2. Historians generally believe that Nancy Hanks was the illegitimate daughter of Lucy Hanks, born into the Joseph Hanks family and married into the Sparrow family.[2][3] There is no generally accepted theory about who Nancy 's father may have been.

*3 based on 1 and 2 above, it is concluded Nancy Hanks is indeed a direct descent of Joseph Hanks through his Son James or his daughter Lucy, regardless, the mitochondria DNA tests confirms Joesph is her grandfather.

    Notes
    • (1) According to Roberts, Gary Boyd, Ancestors of American Presidents, 2009 Edition, Boston, MA: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2009, pp. 16, 33, James TAYLOR, Sr. is "said to be from Carlisle, England."

      (2) The compiler has found no documentation proving that James TAYLOR, Sr. was, in fact, from Carlisle, Cumberland, England.

      (3) The following message was posted by "JohnRoe51" to the Cumberland, England Message Board on Ancestry.com on October 28, 2000, and was revised on June 9, 2002:

      According to a Taylor book called "From Log Cabins to the White House", by Mary Taylor Brewer (1985) my ancestor, James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., Virginia (USA), in 1698 was descended from the Taylors "of Pennington Castle" near Carlisle, Cumberland Co., England. His grandparents were alleged to be Thomas Taylor and Margaret Swinderly and his parents were alleged to be John Taylor (b. 1607) and his wife Elizabeth __?__. The alleged children of Thomas Taylor and Margaret Swinderly were all listed with exact birth (or baptism) dates suggesting that there is a parish register or bible record somewhere in the Cumberland Co., England area from which these exact dates were abstracted.

      I have researched this allegation. Here is what I believe can be documented. A John Taylor with wife Elizabeth __?__ died in Lancaster Co., VA (not PA), in 1651. He seems to be the John Taylor who was born in 1607 in England. He had a brother, James Taylor (b. 12 Feb. 1609/10) who appears to be the James Taylor, surgeon, who married Elizabeth Underwood and died in Surry Co., VA, in 1655. [He had an affair with his servant, Ursula Kettle, in 1651 which produced a bastard son, James Taylor, who was born in 1652 in Surry Co., VA. He also apparently mistreated his wife physically (and emotionally) who sued him for legal separation in 1653-1654.]

      I have come up with absolutely no documentation to suggest the possibility that my James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., VA, was descended from, or in any way connected with, either the John Taylor who died in Lancaster Co., VA, in 1651 or the James Taylor who died in Surry Co., VA, in 1655. I frankly do not believe the allegation of a connection.

      Here is what I have been able to learn of Pennington Castle. Apparently the Penningtons lived in a castle in Cumberland Co., England, in the 11th-12th Century timeframe. The castle apparently was abandoned then and fell into ruin. They then took up home in some other castle, which name is escaping me now. I know of no proven connection between the Taylor family of England or Virginia and the Pennington family of England or Virginia (if there was a Pennington family in VA).

      I think the whole Pennington situation can be traced to somebody's misinterpretation of English heraldry records. There is a ring which has been handed down several generation in a branch of the Taylor family who directly descends from James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., VA, in 1698. The family rumor is that this James Taylor owned the ring and wore it (or it was a seal ring). The unique thing about the ring is that it had a Taylor Crest and Motto on it. The Crest was a naked right arm, bent at the elbow, with the hand holding an arrow. The Motto was "Consequitur Quodcunque Petit". The only English heraldry record I can find of this Crest and Motto was the line of the Headfort Taylors of Ireland who received a grant of a Coat of Arm in 1704 with this Crest and Motto. Lineage is provided back from this Taylor to a Thomas Taylor of Ringmer, Sussex Co., England (1559-1629), but no indication that this Coat of Arms, Crest or Motto was used in the family prior to the 1704 grant. Even assuming that it was used as far back as Thomas Taylor of Ringmer, there is no evidence connecting this Taylor family to either Thomas Taylor and Margaret Swinderly or to James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., VA, in 1698.

      This is only the beginning of the story of the Pennington confusion. In 1826, a Pringle Taylor of the House of Pennington, Southampton, Hampshire Co., England, received a Coat of Arms with a Crest which was very similar to the Headfort Taylor Coat of Arms and Crest, but with significant distinctions. The arm in the Crest was in armour, not naked, and the hand was in a gauntlet and was holding a javelin, not an arrow. The Motto for Pringle Taylor was identical to the Headfort Taylor Motto. From what I have been able to learn of English heraldry, it is very dangerous to assume that because the Pringle Taylor Coat of Arms and the Heatfort Taylor Coat of Arms had similarities (with significant distinctions) that the two Taylor lines were related. There is no other known evidence I have found to prove that the Headfort Taylors and Pringle Taylor are related. More importantly, there is no evidence to establish that Pringle Taylor had a genealogical connection with the Taylors of Cumberland Co., England.

      But, what about the James Taylor ring with the Crest and Motto? My working assumption is that a descendant of James Taylor, probably in the late 18th Century or early 19th Century, looked up the Taylor Coat of Arms, Crest and Motto in a heraldry index book and found the Headfort Taylor information. They adopted this Crest and Motto as their own and had the ring manufactured, without any genealogical information to prove that their Taylor line linked with the Headfort Taylor line. The story grew from there, much the same as a story grows during the game of "pass the secret around a circle" to where the ring was existing in the late 1600s and worn by James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., VA, in 1698 and/or used by him as a seal ring. [I doubt this ring was ever used as a seal ring because the Crest and Motto are correctly oriented on the ring as you look at it which would not produce a correct impression in wax for a seal]. Then somebody else found the Pringle Taylor heraldry which seemed close enought to the Headfort Taylor heraldry and assumed (incorrectly) a connection. Then somebody assumed (incorrectly) that Pennington House, Southampton, Hampshire Co., England, was really Pennington Castle near Carlisle, Cumberland Co., England. Then somebody found some parish register in or near Carlisle Co., England with the children of Thomas Taylor and Margaret Swinderly and "presto" all these Taylors were descended from a common ancestor. Then, since there was nobody else who could be established to be the father of James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., VA in 1698, he must have been a son of one of the children of Thomas Taylor and Margaret Swinderly since two of the children (John & James) seem to have been immigrants to VA during the right timeframe to be James Taylor's father. I admit I can't prove that my working assumption is any more correct (or incorrect) than the other unproven assumptons made by earlier researchers which led to the genealogy reported in "From Log Cabins to the White House" and some other accounts of the James Taylor family.

      My research of James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., VA, in 1698 shows that he first appears in New Kent Co., VA, the parent county of King & Queen Co., VA, in 1675. There is a James Taylor who was listed as a headright of a Leonard Chamberlain who received a land patent in New Kent Co., VA, in 1671. It is quite possible that James Taylor who died in King & Queen Co., VA, in 1698 was imported to VA from England shortly before 1671. There is a 1686 land patent to James Taylor in New Kent Co., VA, which mentions that part of the patented land was granted to him in 1675 by Thomas Reinolds (sic). There are no associates of this James Taylor in New Kent Co., VA, or King & Queen Co., VA, which connect with the Taylors of Lancaster Co., VA, or Surry Co., VA who died in 1650s.

      An ancient legend carries the Taliaferro (Taillefer) family back to Julius Caesar and his campaign in Gaul. The tradition is that Caesar while inspecting his camp at twilight was surrounded by Gallic warriors bent upon taking his life. Admiration for Caesar's bravery caused the leader of the band to spare his life. In the course of the campaign Caesar's captors became his captives. Caesar, recognizing the man who had spared his life, rewarded him by making him his attendant and permitting him to bear arms - a privilege not allowed to any but Roman soldiers, and thus the name Taliaferro originated from the Latin "telum," a dart, and "ferro," to bear.

      A branch of this family wandered to Normandy, thence to England with William the Conqueror. A member of the family, Baron Taliaferro (or Taillefer) fought with the Conqueror and became known to history as "the Hero of Hastings." After William the Conqueror won the English throne he made large grants of land to Baron Taillefer in County Kent, and the Baron and his descendants who possessed these lands were known as the Earls of Pennington. In England in this branch of the family the name became Taillefer, Taylefer and finally Taylor.

      James Taylor I, immigrant, born 1615/16, at the ancestral home, "Pennington," about twenty miles from Carlisle, England, came to America and Virginia in 1635. He settled on Chesapeake Bay between the York (James) and North Rivers. He married first, about 1666, in Va, Frances Walker, who died 1680; married secondly, Aug 10 1682, Mary Gregory, who died after 1696. James Taylor I died in New Kent, Sept 10 1698. James Taylor I served as a member of the House of Burgesses in 1702[?] from King and Queen County; Sheriff of New Kent Co, 1690, and was vestryman of St. George's Parish. He was an extensive land owner and was prominent in the colony.

      A seal ring which had belonged to James Taylor I and which bore the crest and seal of the Taylor Arms has been handed down to the present generation. With this seal ring has also descended a legend to the effect that on a certain occasion when the King of England was enjoying a chase in one of his royal forests, a wild boar, hard driven, turned upon the royal huntsman, whereupon there sprang to his defense one of the knights who slew the boar. The King out of gratitude gave the knight a crest, the distinguishing mark of which was an uplifted hand, accompanied by the motto: "Consequitur quod cumque petit." ("He Obtains Whatever He Seeks.")

      James Taylor I was the father of nine chn, as follows:

      Issue 1st marriage:

      1. Jane Taylor b Dec 27 1668

      2. Martha Taylor b 1670

    THE BELL FAMILY

    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/r/a/Robert-G-Crabtree/FILE/0008page.html

    John and Margaret Bell and their family moved to the New River about 1762, and settled on the east side near the mouth of Little River. John Bell purchased 65 acres from Reuben Ratcliff in 1771, the same tract that had been granted to John Miller in 1753. John Bell appears on the tithable list of William Ingles in 1770. In 1774 he added by survey, a tract of land on the east side of the New River, containing 74 acres. This land was granted to Robert Bell in 1794 (Summers, Annals, p. 545; Kegley, Tithables, p.3; Fincastle County surveys; Loyal Land Company records).

    Bell appears as a member of Skaggs' Company in 1774, and in Trigg's Company in 1777 (Kegley, Soldiers; Kegley, Militia). In the summer of 1774 many families left New River because of Indian troubles; others were forted at Bell's Meadows and although the exact location is not given, it appears likely that this was at John Bell's home. The families mentioned by name who forted there included Ninian, Cloyd, Smith and Crouch, who were members of the community on the west side of the New River (Preston Papers, Draper Mss., 3QQ54).

    The date of the death of John Bell is not known, and no will or settlement has been found, but in 1816 his heirs are listed in a deed in Montgomery County (Book F, p. 225). These heirs sold the 65 acres on Little River and an additional survey made for John Bell in 1790, granted in 1797 and containing 122 acres. The lands were sold to Martin Elliott with the dower reserved for the widow, Margaret Bell. The heirs named were Robert Bell and his wife Keziah, John Bell and his wife, Lucy (married 1786, the daughter of Thomas and Catherine Pate); William Bell and Polly, his wife; Curtis Elliott and Betsy, his wife; Abijah Whitt and Sally, his wife; Daniel Pate and Jane, his wife (married 1799); William Searles and wife, Nancy (married 1796, name given as Sarles); Pleasant Hurt and his wife Polly (Montgomery County Marriage Records).

    Robert Bell, Sr. (1759-1841) was a long-time resident of Little River community, having moved to the area when he was about three years of age (Rev. War pension record S8065, National Archives). The records show that he was the son of John Bell, Sr. and his wife, Margaret, who lived in the same community. They were one of the few families who appeared to have remained in the settlement during the summer of 1774 (See John Bell sketch above).

    Robert Bell was drafted to serve in the Revolutionary War about one month after it began. He served one month under Aaron Skaggs. He marched to Bluestone where he was stationed to guard Mares' and McGuire's stations against inroads of Indians. There was no regular encounter with the Indians, but they had to drive them off and repel them frequently. About three months after this service he was called to guard the same stations again, and served another month. He served under Colonel William Preston with Mace Tacey as his sergeant. The third tour was under Captain Burnes, which time he served about one month.

    He marched against the Tories at Buffalo Pond and from there to Collins (?Carrons's) stone mill in Wythe County (at that time Fincastle) and from the mill to the Lead Mines. He was drafted a fourth time, and served under Abram Trigg who was the captain and marched to the Mulberry fields on the "Big Adkin" [Yadkin] and from there to Shallow Ford, down the Yadkin where they had a battle with the Tories. He helped carry the wounded from Shallow Ford to the Moravian Towns, where he left them under the care of physicians. Joseph Cloyd was the major and William Preston the colonel. This last time he served about a month and a half. Preston himself was present on this tour (S8065 Rev. War Pension).

    For this service he was allowed a pension of $20 per annum beginning March 4, 1831. A notation on the records stated he was paid under the Act of 6 April, 1838 from Sept. 4, 1839 to Sept. 4, 1840. Notification to discontinue the pension was given July 21, 1841 which was probably about the time of Robert Bell's death.

    In 1783 Robert Bell's lands were surveyed and he appears as owner of 264 acres opposite Dunkard Bottom, and 50 acres on Little River (Montgomery County Survey). In 1788 Thompson Farmer sold him 50 acres near Little River and the New River which were "to include the salt peter cave." He also obtained a grant for 340 acres. Robert Bell, Sr. and his wife, Keziah, sold 130 acres part of this grant to Jeremiah Bell in 1810. In 1814 they sold 100 acres to John Bell, who also received Jeremiah's land in 1816. In 1826 Robert Bell, Jr. received 130 acres and in 1828 William Bell received 100 acres. In 1836 the 10 acres where Robert Bell, Sr. lived was sold to John Bell with the reservation that all land cleared and all in cultivation be reserved for his natural lifetime. William Bell and his wife, Nancy Vineyard (married 1820), were settled in Callaway County, Missouri and sold their land to John Bell (Montgomery County surveys; Montgomery County Deed Books D, p. 705; E, p. 468; F, p. 214; K, p. 178; M, pp.132, 68, 69).

    Although there is no relationship stated in these deeds, it appears that Robert Bell, Sr. was dividing his estate among his sons Jeremiah, John, Robert, Jr., and William. Because all of Robert's property was disposed of before his death, he left no will and there was no inventory of his estate.

    Marriage records of Montgomery County show that Jeremiah Bell, son of Robert Bell, married Elizabeth Hall, daughter of Asa Hall in 1807. John Bell, son of Robert Bell, married Polly Vineyard, daughter of George Vineyard in 1818. Robert Bell, Jr. married Sarah Vineyard, another daughter of George Vineyard in 1820. William Bell married Nancy Vineyard with Robert Bell and George Vineyard as securities. Nancy may have been another daughter of George Vineyard. Marriage records show that at least two daughters of Robert Bell were married in Montgomery County. These were Margaret who married Jonathan Hall in 1800 and Patsy Bell who married William Farmer in 1812. There may have been other children not mentioned.

    The Bell family graveyard on a ridge south of Dunkard Bottom is the last resting place for Robert Bell, Sr. who died in 1841, and his wife Keziah, who died in 1836, age 85. George Bell, born 1820, died 1844, and Martha Bell, wife of George Bell who died about 1855 age 40 are also buried there. John Bell who died in 1839 at age 50 is in the same cemetery.

    Jeremiah Bell died about 1831, and his estate was appraised in July of that year (Montgomery County Will Book 5, p. 59). Among the many interesting items listed in the Jeremiah Bell estate were the following: cupboard and cupboard ware, 6 tin cups, 4½ dozen fish hooks and some lines, candlestick and "moles," stone jugs, and spice mortar, table, trunk, bedsteads and furniture, one with curtains, a figured "counterpin," one pair of cotton cards, one bed quilt, one little bedstead and furniture, 3 books, a water pail, 7 old chairs, augers, gimblet, knives, saddle and bridle, man's saddle, flax wheel, 4 reels, 5 pairs gears, one loom, shuttle and temples, one big wheel, and 21 spools, one reel and spolling frame, a table and bread tray, a water can, a tin bucket, kitchen cupboard, 2 pots, one oven with lid, a smoothing iron, fire shovel and pot hooks, 6 crocks and a churn, a washing tub and barrel, 3 reap hooks, hoes, wedges, axes, plows, "scythers," cradle, 12 hogs, one horse, 16 sheep, 5 pigs, 2 milk cows and calves, 2 young heifers, one "canoo," lead, powder, and a trumpet.

    John Bell, son of Robert, Sr., remained in the Little River community and died there about 1839. He left no will but his widow, Mary or Polly, is mentioned in Pulaski County deeds during the 1840's and early 50's. Most of the heirs sold there interest in the place to John Grayson. The heirs listed were Crockett Bell and his wife, Elizabeth; Noah Showalter and his wife, Elizabeth; George Bell and his wife, Martha; Kennerly B. Warnacott and his wife, Margaret (Margaret had purchased a share from George Bell); Joseph Warden and wife Hannah; John R. Bell and his wife, Cynthia Mary; Robert P. Bell and his wife, Margaret; Addison Plummer and his wife, Nancy; Sarah Jane Bell and Campbell Bell (Pulaski County Deed Books 1, pp. 228, 235, 260, 282: 2, pp. 80, 279, 299, 310, 364 483, 643, 675; 3, pp. 20, 288, 264, 493).

The applicant cannot recollect the year and month he served, but knows it was after the two first tours stated by him. He was then drafted again and served under Abram Trigg who was the Captain and marched to the Mulberry fields on the Big Adkin from there to the shallow ford down the Big Adkin where we had a battle with the Tories, we carried the wounded from the shallow ford to the Moravian Towns & left them there under physicians.

    *1. There is long standing controversy regarding  Nancy Hanks Lincoln 's heritage.. A recent mitochondrial DNA test of descendants of daughters of Joseph Hanks, daughters of Lucy Hanks Sparrow, and two Shipley sisters show a match between Hanks and Sparrow and no match to the Shipleys, making it very likely Nancy Hanks is the illegitimate daughter of Lucy Hanks.[4] Information from the Shipley and Berry families, as well as some historical sites, claim that Nancy 's mother was Lucy or Lucey Shipley, sister to Rachel Shipley Berry . Nancy 's father may have been James Hanks  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Hanks_Lincoln_heritage

    *2. Historians generally believe that Nancy Hanks was the illegitimate daughter of Lucy Hanks, born into the Joseph Hanks family and married into the Sparrow family.[2][3] There is no generally accepted theory about who Nancy 's father may have been.

    *3 based on 1 and 2 above, it is concluded Nancy Hanks is indeed a direct descent of Joseph Hanks through his Son James or his daughter Lucy, regardless, the mitochondria DNA tests confirms Joesph is her grandfather.

    The following is taken from "Some Prominent Virginia Families," Vol II-IV, Chapter X., pp. 224:
     

    "Three miles from Manchester, in co. Lancashire, England, is the town of Pendleton, known as a portion of Salfordborough. Over the door of one of the inns swings the arms of the Pendleton family, exactly like those brought to the America by the emigrant, Philip Pendleton. Some little distance off is the manor house, occupied still by a family of Pendletons, and around the old church are the tombs of the departed Pendletons. Here we pause, feeling ourselves aliens in our father's house. Under that roof truss are the records that would carry us back along the line of English history until we found the ancestor whose bravery in the Crusades, won him the right to place upon his shield the silver pilgrim's shells, which form a distinctive feature of the coat-of-arms. The family evidently belonged to English gentry, a purer and prouder distinction oftentimes than many of the titles which have changed hands and family names many times as they come down the avenue of ages."
     

    From "Virginia Families," we find the following:
     

    "The name of Pendleton seems to have been originally Pen-Hulton, meaning "top of the hill;" then Pen-Elton and finally Pendleton. The anme id from two Gaelic words, pendle and dun, meaning summit (or top) and hill, respectively. In Lancashire the name appears as early as 1246 when Siward de Penelton, deceased, was mentioned. The same year in the Assize Rolls of Lancashire, mention was made of Thomas de Parva Pendleton, who was surety for Adam. Rochard and Roger de Penelton, sons of Matilda de Penelton, who was probably the widow of Siweard de Penelton. In 1332 Adam de Penelton paid taxes there. The town of Pendleton was a portion of Salfordborough. Judge Edmund Pendleton of Virginia, in his Family Chronology of 1792 stated that "About the year 1674 Nathaniel Pendleton, a Minister, and Philip Pendleton, a school master, sons of Henry Pendleton of the City of Norwich, co. Norfolk, in England, came thence to Virginia in America......In 1469 Thomas Pendleton was living in Lancashire, in which county he held lands; at the same time were two brothers, William and Robert Pendleton, who were probably his sons. Another member of the family was the Rev. Henry Pendleton (1521-1557), who may have been a brother of George Pendleton, Sr., who lived in the town of Pendleton during the reign of King Henry VII. (1485-1509). Thomas Pendleton, who died in 1534, was a nephew of the Rev. Henry Pendleton; he had five sons: George, Edward, etc......George Pendleton, Esq., Sr., of the town of Pendleton, was living in the reign of King Henry VIII. (1509-1547)."
     

    The first name upon the Virginia record is that of George Pendleton, Esquire, of the town of Pendleton, Lancashire, England.

    In 1707 according to Crozier, John Colyer/Collier was a Captain in the Infantry of King and Queen County. IN 1711 Queen Ann granted him land in King and Queen County "for diverse good causes and considerations". The Colyers were of noble descent and trace their ancestry even to the Crusades. All of the Virginia Colyers were Whigs during the Revolution. Saunders refer to the fact that during the war, "Sir George Collier, Read Admiral of the British Nacy, was shelling the coast of Rhode Island while his American Cousins , the Colyers of Virginia, were shedding their blood in defense of the Colonies".

    John Collier, served at Valley Forge with Washington , Knew Thomas Jefferson

    John Collier
    Sex: M
    Birth: 17 JAN 1740 in Belle Haven, Culpepper Co, Va
    Death: 31 MAR 1836 in Rockcastle Co, Kentucky
    Burial: McClary Cemetery, Rockcastle County, Kentucky five miles north west of Mr. Vernon, Rockcastle Co, Ky. It is a large deserted spot and the stone marking their graves has not been located. Note:
     

    On 4-3-1780, 50 acres were conveyed to John Colyer for services rendered by him during the French/Indian war between Great Britian and France, according to the proclamation of 1763, by the King of Great Britain. This warrant was signed by S. Carr. 7-13-1780 Henry Co, Va Fishing Fork District of Leatherwood Creek was the property John picked to use with his Land Grant.

    On 11-3-1793, Collier was wounded at St. Clair's Defeat near Ft. Jefferson, Ohio
    He served in the Battle of Monmouth and was at Valley Forge in December of 1777

    A Land Grant in Virginia shows a grant of 217 acres to John Colyer by Thomas Jefferson. He apparently did not pre-empt the acreage, but sold the warrant to secure money for his immediate needs.

    John enlisted in the Revolutionary War in the Viginia Continental Line. He Fought at Valley Forge, and Braddock's Defeat. He was a Private in the Virginia 7th Regiment.  During the Revolutionary War, John Colyer, Sr. fought in Captain Thomas Hill's Co 7th Virginia Regiment under the command of Col. McClenahan.

    "He enlisted February 13, 1777 to serve for three years or until the end of the War. His name is borne on the rolls to November 1779, which later contained no further information relative to his service"' Signed by Brigadier General Wahl, Acting Adj. General.

    The part of the Revolutionary War about which John Collier spoke most frequently to his children and grandchildren was the terrible winter at Vally Forge, where he was a private in the 7th Virginia Regiment (Capt. Thomas Hill). The following is quoted along the line of this matter from "Valley Forge" (1910) by Rev. James W. Riddle of Philadelphia:
    "The troops arrived at Valley Forge, twenty-one miles from Philadelphia on December 9, 1777 with nothing but tents to withstand the rigors of a very severe winter. The soldiers were at once put to work to build log huts, 14X16 feet. Each hut accommodated twelve privates. Officers were not so crowded. The huts were laid out in streets. Straw supported by poles was used for roofs. Straw also was used for bedding for the soldier's bunks. At first 11,890 men were encamped at Valley Forge. Camp fever broke out. Small-pox became epidemic. Sickness and death and desertion reduced the number to 5,012. June 18, 1772 the men heard the British were evacuating Philadelphia. General George Washington broke camp and pushed toward Philadelphia, arriving there as the last of the British were crossing the Delaware. June 28, 1778 Washington and his men attacked Clinton at Monmouth in New Jersey. "

    Whenever John Collier noticed that his children or grandchildren showed the least indication of wastefulness, he at once would reprimand them, telling them of the suffering at Valley Forge, how he had seen soldiers fight for a kernel of corn; how he and others lacked shoes and socks to keep their feet warm, and as they walked in the snow, would leave the marks of blood from their tender, frost-bitten feet; how some of the soldiers had so little clothing that, when they stepped out of their huts, they had to throw their bedding around them. He well remembered Baron Von Steuben. whose striking personality made an indelible impression upon all the Privates. Von Steuben spoke English only brokenly, but he spoke it or some other language very forcibly. No one could misunderstand his meaning, for his adjectives were very strong and pointed. He saw the men hungry, ill-clothed clothes and suffering every privation, yet most of them were unwilling to leave and give up the cause of independence so dear to them. Nearby in Philadelphia, where the British and their American Tory friends were stationed, there was plenty of food, plenty of clothing, there was dancing and music and happy times for all, while in this cold and isolated spot a few men were trying to achieve independence for a forlorn cause. While Von Steuben regarded them with admiration and said no cause could fail with such men as that, he yet saw the imperative need of better drilled soldiers and better guns, and he did his part to that end; so well indeed did he aid that Congress recognized his efforts and gave him vast land grants in his old age.
    Although the services of John Collier in the war, as shown on the old Revolutionary rolls, appears to be limited to two years and nine months, unquestionably it covered a period much longer that that, extending indeed to the very close of the struggle. Several times he was wounded. Some of the bullets he carried in his body to the grave. Other bullets were placed in the coffin when he was buried. He was present at the Battle of the Brandywine and also at Monmouth New Jersey besides other various battles, names of which are not known. One of the stories he told his grandchildren was that, when two warring armies were lying on opposite sides of a river (presumably the Delaware) he and some other soldiers floated down the river on driftwood in such a manner as to draw near the opposite shore, where they took possession of a boatload or provisions belonging to the enemy. Using great caution they managed to work the boat over to the American side where their comrades were in great need of supplies. Once in battle he was struck by a bullet that he at first thought had finished him. When he recovered from the shock and hunted out the damage, he found that the bullet had struck squarely on the front of the large silver coin that he wore as a top button on the fly of his trousers. There was no damage beyond the heavy blow. He told his children that he was present at the dissolution of the army. He recalled how the veterans showed very deep emotion. Their tears run freely down over unshaved faces to lodge on ragged, dirty shirts.

    After his discharge from the army at the close of the Revolutionary War, John attempted to find his wife and children. He joined a group of discharged soldiers who made their way over the Alleghenies and then down the Ohio River by boat to Kentucky. There he fell ill and for some time he was in a serious condition at Bryant's Station (near the present site of Lexington) After his recovery he started back along the Boone Trail, to join his family in Powell's Valley. Meanwhile, some travelers from Kentucky had returned to Virginia and en route had stopped to tell Grizelda that her husband was nigh unto death at Bryant's Station. Hastily, she put her children out among neighbors and joined a group of armed emigrants going to Kentucky by a different road. When she finally reached Bryant's Station, it as only to be told that he husband had recovered and started for Powell's Valley. She was obliged to remain at Bryant's station nearly three months before she found an opportunity to join an armed party going back over the dangerous road to her starting point. The husband and wife were finally reunited. For some years after the War they lived in Virginia, where their son Charles was born in 1786. Shortly after this they moved to Kentucky and settled in what is now Rockcastle County. From there he went north in 1791 as a volunteer in Indian Warfare.

    It was a proof of the patriotism of John Collier that, when almost fifty years of age, he left his Kentucky home to again aid his country as a soldier. In 1791 he served as a sergeant in Capt. Jacob Tipton's Company. Col. William Darke's First Regiment of U.S. Levies, in General St. Clair's army and took part in the battle of St. Clair's Defeat. Many more details of the battle and John's "after the war" life are told in the Calloway publication.

    By way of explanation, Mrs. A.E. Hart, compiler of "The Calloway Family of Virginia" state: "My mother stated that her grandmother Grizelda Taylor Colyer said that she was married at Belle Haven in the Episcopal Church" Many details of the wedding day are in the article also.

    John Collier was a large man about 180 pounds. He had a good education and was a Whig. He was a Sergeant in the Revolutionary War in Capt. Jacob Lipton's company of the Virginia Line. As tradition has it that he was at St. Clair's defeat and was wounded. He crawled off into the wilderness and saved his own life by killing a rattlesnake and eating it and dressing his wounds with whisky from a canteen that was in the family until destroyed by a fire in 1888. It is also related that he made it a point to never give anything away that he did not wish himself....Marietta D. Beardlsey

IN 1711 Queen Ann granted him land in King and Queen County "for diverse good causes and considerations". The Colyers were of noble descent and trace their ancestry even to the Crusades. All of the Virginia Colyers were Whigs during the Revolution. Saunders refer to the fact that during the war, "Sir George Collier, Read Admiral of the British Nacy, was shelling the coast of Rhode Island while his American Cousins , the Colyers of Virginia, were shedding their blood in defense of the Colonies".

    EARLY MARRIAGES, WILLS AND SOME REVOLUTIONARY WAR RECORDS, BOTETOURT COUNTY, VIRGINIA. Compiled by ANNE LOWRY WORRELL. Genealogical Publishing Do., Inc 1976<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    PAUL TO BOUSMAN

    26 December 1792 - John Paul of Rickbridge Co. for one part and Lawrence Bousman of said county for the other part. For 70£ paid by Bousman for 137 acres, 3 rods and 2 poles, adj. Jacob East, Christopher Vineyard, William Campbell, Gerehearts, and Secats.

    George Vineyard was named in the 1787 Rockbridge County Tax list as a tithe chargeable to Christopher Vineyard. There is no relationship stated. George Vineyard married Mary Campbell in 1890. There may be a relationship between Mary and William Campbell. There are many reference to a William Campbell in Early Adventures on the Western Waters, but there is nothing to conclude that they are the same William Campbell.
