As always, words in brackets are notes & comments added by this author and are also footnotes. Items in parenthesis are original to the published records.


Mordecai Price was born near Baltimore, Maryland and named in homage of his Quaker ancestors of the same name who settled in Maryland in the mid 17th Century. Mordecai's only published date of birth, 1749 was unreferenced in Harry L. Ausmus' 1963 book, Ausmus Family History, 1711-1962 [35]. The book also stated that Mordecai was born in Virginia and the Price's and Borens [sic] moved from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to Tennessee in 1777 - the date is definitely and error and there is no evidence that Mordecai had ever lived in Virginia - although some of his relatives did for a short time.

Mordecai Price was one of nine children born to Capt. Benjamin  Price (8 Mar 1732/33 - 1794) and Millicent or Millison Vaughn (1734/35 - 26 May 1787) who married c1752 [21]. The Price's were wealthy planters and slaveholders who farmed in Baltimore County. Benjamin was captain of the Maryland Militia in August of 1780 [14; pg 416]. Millicent was the daughter of Abraham Vaughn (1707 - 1767) and Edith Gist (1708/9 - ?) of Baltimore County, Maryland. Edith was the sister of the famous explorer and surveyor, Christopher Gist (1706 -1759) who saved George Washington's life twice and survived Braddock's Defeat.

In at least one occurrence, Mordecai went by the name, "Harden" (See 1793 Wash Co., TN Tax List listed with the same 400 acres as subsequent lists). It may be a coincidence, but Mordecai's father, Benjamin was listed under the Virginia Muster of Captain John Hardin in Frederick County Court, 1758 [15].

Mordecai married Rachael Boreing  (1758- aft 1830) [2] 9 Aug 1777. Rachael was the youngest child of James Boreing (16 Nov 1714 - 14 Oct 1795) and Martha Wheeler (28 Feb 1718 - bef 1760). Rachael's mother died either during or shortly after Rachael's birth. James married second, Sarah (Boston) Tipton (7 Feb 1729 -aft 1795) widow of Luke Tipton (24 Jan 1728 - c1773)

Mordecai and Rachael's place of marriage as stated by some erroneous tradition was not Tennessee. Mordecai did not settle in Tennessee until 1792.

Mordecai and Rachael gave birth to at least eight children, two of which settled in Powell's Valley, present day, Claiborne County. According to the descendants of Mordecai's daughter, Linda (Price) Ausmus. She was jolly and always had something funny to tell:

In her latter days, she would tell about riding along Brush Creek (now Johnson City) and seeing deer on the other side. She would tell about going to see horse racing as a girl. She enjoyed telling about slipping up on a deer, catching and holding on to it until someone came and killed the deer. She shot at three Indians trying to steal something or perhaps trying to kidnap her while the men were in the field working. She evidently shot one, as the other two picked up the one Indian and carried him away. She never knew what happened to the one she shot. [35]

According to tradition [35], the Price family were Welsh and wealthy having imported, feather beds, looking glasses, silver, chests, much stock, such as cattle and horses, sheep, guns and all kinds of things that they had brought from their old homestead.

Mordecai died in August of 1799 in Washington County, Tennessee and his estate was inventoried in the November Term of the County Court.

The War

Letter from Maryland Council to Brigadier General Hooper

Since our last [correspondence]  we have had advice from Major [Benjamin] Price our Commanding officer in Saint Mary's, that the British Fleet lay near the mouth of Smith's creek in Potowmack [sic], that they were very weak in Land-forces not exceeding 300 men, that they were so sickly that 50 dead bodies had appeared on the shores, chiefly negroes, and that having gone up the River Potowmack to take in water & returned, he imagined they would soon sail from that Quarter.

The Move to Washington County, Tennessee

Land speculation toward the end of the Revolutionary war was an ever increasingly popular investment especially due to settlements from service in the military and new large-scale Indian treaties in which large swaths of land was annexed by the infant states of the newly created union. 

18 May 1789 (age 40)
In 1788, Mordecai's father-in-law, James Boring paid one hundred and eighty pounds for Thomas Talbott's five hundred and twenty six acres at the head of Brush Creek, in present day Johnson City, Tennessee. Nearly one year later after the purchase, Mordecai made an offer to James Boring on the Eighteenth of May of 1789, for 400 acres of land adjacent to James Boring's land on Brush Creek in Washington County, NC (later TN). The government issued deed stated that Mordecai had one year to register the deed in the County and pay his fees for the land, otherwise the registrar would void the sale.

 The adjacent parcel was owned by Jonathan Tipton, another relative to Mordecai. Mordecai's older cousin with the same name, Mordecai [27 Feb 1731- 5 Sep 1807] had married Tabitha Tipton in Gunpowder, Baltimore County, MD [10]. Jonathan was born in Frederick County, Virginia and was a Major in Revolutionary war.

Youngstown Ohio, March 4. With seven other Ohioans, four residing in Canton, one in Fremont, one in Coshocton, and one in Norwalk, J.V. Price and ex Mayor W.J. Lawthers of this city are heirs to the estate of Thomas Price [Mordecai's brother, Thomas died in New Philadelphia, Ohio], consisting of land in the heart of the City of Baltimore valued at $400,000,000. [1910 dollars], the title to which they will attempt to prove in courts.

A fifteen years' search for the original title from Lord Baltimore to Thomas Price has been rewarded with the finding of the document in the posession of Harry V. Alexander of New Philadelphia, Ohio. The deed, dated June 25, 1733, conveys the property to Price for a consideration of approxamately $30. A ninety-nine years lease on the land expired fifteen years ago.
