Benjamin CLEMENT Captain

CLEMENT HILL HOUSE
"Like a grandparent proudly but quietly surveying a reunion of enterprising descendants, venerable CLEMENT HILL silently watches over the industrial and commercial growth of the Stauton River Valley (Pittsylvania County, Virginia) at Hurt.
" A Virginia Historical Marker commorating CLEMENT HILL and its first owner stands beside US 29 at Hurt=="THE HOUSE ON THE HILL THREE HUNDRED YARDS TO THE WEST WAS THE HOME OF CAPTAIN BENJAMIN CLEMENT, WHO WAS ONE OF THE FIRST MAKER OF GUNPOWDER IN VIRGINIA, 1775. THE LAND GRANT WAS MADE IN 1741."
"Just a few short years ago the marker stood virtually alone, drawing the traveler's attention to the only building of significance nearby, the white structure crowning the hill just to the west, now behind a shopping center.
"The house was built by Captain (of a local militia Ranger Company, organized for protection against hostile Indians) BENJAMIN CLEMENT, probably in the 1770's, CLEMENT had begun amassing land holdings in the area in the 1740's. An area which at the time had recently seen intensive occupation by local natives, the rich lands just to the south of the river sprouted CLEMENT'S own early form
of industrial growth:TOBACCO, water-powered grist mill (he obtained permission to build one, but it is not certain whether he completed it), and--in partnership with CHARLES LYNCH from across the river, the area's first gunpowder mill.
In "The History of Pittsylvania County, Virginia" by MAUYDE CARTER CLEMENT is found, reprinted CHARLES LYNCH'S 1775 letter describing his and BENJAMIN CLEMENT"S success in making salt-petre, principle ingredient in gunpowder. He states "Without (salt-petre) we can have no powder, consequently no means of defense; but with it we shall soon have both." CLEMENT and LYNCH were already
manufacturing fifty pounds per day.
Nearly a century later another leading Pittsylvania name - HURT - became associated with the property when soon-to-become-State Senator JOHN L.HURT bought CLEMENT HILL - the ancestral home of his wife NANNIE CLEMENT. From HURT, CLEMENT HILL passed to his nephew, also named JOHN L. HURT JR, a philantropist bent on bringing prosperty to the residents of northern Pittsylvania through industrial development. From HURT"S efforts came the growth of the town of HURT, he left CLEMENT HILL, formerly home to the CLEMENTS and HURTS who made Hurt possible. In 1986 CLEMENT HILL was purchased by Altavista attorney HAROLD E. PUGH, lifelong resident of HURT, who has since
beautifully restored the building.
More detailed information concerning Clement Hill, the CLEMENTS and the HURTS is found in MAUD CLEMENT'S *History of Pittsylvania County"; "Pittsylvania Homes and People of the Past" by MADALENE V. FITZGERALD; and "18th Century Landmarks of Pittsylvania" and "An Intimate History of the American Revolution in Pittsylvania County" by FRANCES H. HURT.

Sons: Benjamin and George; daughter Elizabeth Clements. Ex. wife Susanna.
Witnesses: Thomas Brady, G. French. Wm. Smith. Clerk: Robert Patterson.
There is a land Grant in Charlotte Co., VA for Benjamin Clements in the year of 1768 for 400 acres on Page 261 of the VA County Rec. Quarterly Mag.
1. Benjamin fought in the French and Indian War. He filed papers to collect some type of bounty (money or land) for his particapation. Those papers have since been lost.
2. He married twice. First to Mary Baker and second to Sariah Bailey. I believe Rachel was born to Mary.
3. His father, Capt. Benjamin Clements, was in the Rangers (an early VA Militia) and was the first man to make gunpowder in the colonies (or at least the first to be documented as such). In 1775, the VA Governor figured that the colonists might not use all their gunpowder on Indians and wolves (maybe on Redcoats instead0 and began an contiscating shipments of gunpowder from Europe destined for the Colonists.
In Aug. Capt. Ben's partner, Col. Charles Lynch, published a letter in the VA Gazette proclaiming the excellent quality of the powder, but stating they needed a source of saltpetre (modern emistry--potassium nitrate. He asked all to dig out the dirt floor of their houses and published a recipe on how to boil the dirt and extract the saltpetre from it.

 FOLLOWING IS AN INTERVIEW BETWEEN IRA "SI" COUCH
 AND REV. JOHN "JAY" DICKEY IN THE DICKEY DIARY

 Date is April 27, 1898, Place is Big Creek, KY. PAGE 2277
 (Microfilm is Available From Latter Day Saints Church Files)

"I was born in ............Co., KY 1812. My father Martin Couch came to Ky.  from New River (on Holston). Old John Campbell's wife was my father's sister.  Old James Lewis' wife was another.

My father settled at the Mouth of Lick Branch in Perry County. He had seven sons, Joe, Thomas, Eli, John, Charlie, Ira. All these are dead but me. He had a brother John who came with him. John had sons: Wm., Andy, Lige, Dick, the latter died young. My father also had another brother James whose son lives in Clay "Stutter" John.

My grandfather John Couch came with them.... My mother was Sally Hall, Aunt of Philip Hall. They came a long time before I was born. My father was born before his parents came here."
                                                                          ~~~~~~~~
In the above letter please let me add a couple of things that I know as the great-grandson of "SI" Couch. JPD

Martin and Sally Hall Couch were both born in 1785 and were both listed in the 1850 Perry Co., KY census. One of them died in 1856. The other shortly after.  John Couch, father of Martin, is listed in the 1830 Perry Co. Census.

Polly Couch, d/o John Couch, was the wife of "Old John" Campbell. Sallie Couch, d/o John Couch, was the w/o James Lewis II. Both were sisters of Martin Couch.

If Sarah is the Aunt of Philip Hall, as the article states, she must be the d/o of John Hall SR who married Mary "Polly" Hash in Grayson Co., NC. Her father never came to KY. I have proof of lineage in my files. JPD

I have picture of Eli and Polly in my files. Also have 4 deeds with her name on them. Have been to her grave in Hazard Cemetery alongside Eli just inside the gate.  Have pictures of graves of Eli and Polly.
Polly is buried just inside Hazard Cemetery, alongside of Elias. Daughter Margaret had child out of wedlock named Cassius. Eli and Polly raised Cassius. He is shown living with them in 1910 Perry Census. Also shown with Eli as his guardian in school census. It is also possible that Polly died in 1910 and was not buried until a year later. This was sometimes the custom to have the funeral a year later. See Records of Dr. Luke COMBS and also records of William O'Connnor. Also 1850 Census of Perry Co.
