John Brevard, He was among the first Maryland Colonist in Rowan [Iredell] Co, NC. Sometime between 1740 & 1750, settling about two miles from Center church. At the commencement of the Rev. War, he, then, and old and infirm man, had 8 sons and 4 daughters. John was a well known and influential Whig, & early installed his partiotic principles into the minds of his children. His house and buildings were burned by the British for the reason that he had eight sons in the rebel army [Ref: WSR-113, & CLH-233,234 & Marylanders to Carolina by Henry C.

Was Eduacated at the Academy of Charlotte; he was made Major of the 4th Regiment and Thomas Polk was made Colonel: and forming a part of a brigade Nash join the Grand Army of the North under Washington; it was for threeyears under the eye of that great chief, and participated in the battles of Brandywine Sept 1777, Germantown, Oct 1777, and Monmouth, June 1778. The North Carolina Troops were sent in Nov. 1779 to erinforce the Southern Army, commanded by Major General Lincoln at Charleston.

There are no particulars recorded of the services of Davidon in the actions of Brandywine, Monmourth, or Germantown, and such has been the carelessness or neglect. As to North Carolina, that the student of history may look in vain, for any statement or notice of the troops of NC. Except that General Nash was killed at Germantown, and that Colonels Polk and Buncombe were wounded. But the brigade of NC troops wes, unquestionably, a part of the Army, and bravely performed its duty.

Previous to this event, he had been promoted tot he command of a regiment. As he passed through NC, DAvidson obtained permission to visit his family, which he had not seen for nearly three years. The delay produced by this vist, saved him from captivity, for on his arrival at Charleston, he found it so closely invested that he was prevented from joining his regiment. Lincoln surrendered May 12, 1779. Davidson returned home and raised troops to suppress the Tories, who encouraged by the approach of the British, had become daring, desperate and dangerous. At Calson's Mill, he encountered a strong force of Tories, gave them battle and a severe engagement occured in which Davidson was dangerously wounded by a ball passing entirely through his body; this kept him from the field for two months. On his recovery he immediately went into active service, now promoted to be a Brigadier in place of General Rutherford, who was taken prisoner at Camden. he was active with Sumter and Davie, in checking the advance of the British Troops. To that intent the posted his command at Cowan's Ford, on the Carawaba. At daybreak, February 1, 1781, the British Army, under Lord Cornwallis, commenced crossing. The picket of General Davidson, challenged the enemy, and receiving no answer, fired.

Lord Cornwallis had his horse killed under him; Colonel Hall was killed, also three privates, and thirty-six wounded. General Davidson, in riding from the point where he expected the enemy to cross to the place where they did, was fired upon, a rifle ball passed through his heart and he fell dead from his horse. As the British only had muskets, and the Tories rifles, andhe was slain by a rifle shot, it is believed he fell by the hand of a Tory.

BIOGRAPHY: ROBERT BREVARD, third son & fourth child of John Brevard, Sr. & Katherine Mcknitt Brevard, was born "near the Head of Elk [River]" in Cecil County, Maryland, on 10 January 1718. Robert married Sarah Craig on 16 April 1744. This marriage is thought to have taken place in Maryland, but may have occured in Anson County, North Carolina, where Robert appears in early colonial records.

Robert Brevard migrated to Rowan County, N.C., with his brothers, John and Zebulon, and his sister Elizabeth circa 1745. Robert entered upon land at the headwaters pf Rocky River, located between lands owned by James and John Templeton, and George and Samuel Davidson. On 29 Sept 1749 he petitioned the Council of North Carolina for a warrant of land -640 acres. He made a second petition for a grant of patent on 640 acres in Anson, Rowan County on 28 Mar 1751. [Colonial Records for NC, Vol. IV, pp. 951, 959; NC Land Grants, Vol. XI, pp. 4-5; II, p. 10; X, p. 310]

Lord Granville granted to Robert Brevard of Anson, [Rowan Co] NC, 640 acres on Rocky River in that county on 25 Mar 1752. On 29 Jan 1755 Granville made a further grant to Robert Brevard of Rowan Co, NC of 102 acres on Rocky River. [Rowan Co, Deed Books III. pp. 156-159; IV, pp. 8857-858] Robert Brevard along with James Alexander, taught school in Rowan County before the Revolution. He owned only two slaves in 1768, and only seven in 1979, which would seem to indicate that he did not farm extensively, [Carolina Cradle-Robert W. Ramsey. University of NC Press, Chapel Hill, NC., 1964, pp. 177, 190] Following the Revolution Robert Brevard made a claim to the House of Commons and Senate of the State of North Carolina 1785. The nature and out come of this claim were not clear. Perhaps he was applying for a pension or to recover proberty lost during the war.

Robert and Sarah Brevard lived and died in Iredell Co, NC., this county had been formed from Rowan in 1788, and their residence through their time in NC. Whether Anson, Rowan, or Iredell, had likely been the same for more than fifty years. Robert Brevard drew up his will in August 1797, three years before his death on 20 Oct 1800. In his will he bequeathed tracts of land to his two youngest daughters. Apparently they were unmarried at the time, so this would be dowry for their future use. No other daughters were named, and we can assume they had already been provided for at the time of their marriages.

Interestubg bequeaths to his son Robert Brevard were: "My still and Vessels" and "Appraisement of a horse lost in the service of the United States" Robert was to be joint executor of his father's will with Alexander Young. Adam and John Brevard, nephews of Robert Brevard, and James Young were witnesses to Robert's will. Adam and John were sons of John Brevard Jr.

During the Revolution Robert served with Captain James Houston's Company of NC. No Further record of service was found.

While the British destroyed his house for good measure they tried to take his daughter Asenath to get her to reveal the hiding place of her husband Capt. James Houston who had been badly wounded in a previous battle>

Notes: Sarah Craig Brevard's will dated 30 Nov 1801 ws written several years before her reputed death in 1817. [American Families-American History Society, Inc., NY Vol. 25, "Brevard" p. 106] Sarah named all her married daughters by thier married names. Household utensils and furniture, clothing and slaves were bequeathed to the daughters. A large Bible was passed down to her son Robert Mcknitt [Brevard?]; Her son Robert and son-in-law John Huggins were appointed executors. Sarah signed her will with an X in the presence of Elihu King, another son-in-law, and A. C. Young.

The Craig family of Sarah Craig Brevard has not been determined. A James Craig lived in Cecil Co, MD in 1790. A Scotch Church of England family of Craiges, settled in Rowan Co, NC, by 1750. When Archibald died in 1758, his wife Mary Craige became administratix of his estate during the minority of their sons. Sons David and James Craige presently owned around 2000 acres of land on the Ydkin River. [History of Rowan County, NC Rev. Jethro Rumple. Reprint 1974 p. 236]

A Captain David Craig got a military grant of 3200 acres of land in Western NC [later Maury Co, TN] for his service in the Rev. War in 1808 his widow and sons settled on theCraig grant in TN. [Let the Drums Roll-Marise P. Lightfoot p. 139] between 1813-1819 Samuel, William, James and David Craig are in the court records of Maury Co, TN. Sarah Craig's relation, if any, to these Craig families is not known.
