WILLIAM POPLIN was born February 1748/49, and died June 02, 1835 in NC. He married LUCY 1769 in Chatham Co.,NC. She was born 1751, and died Aft. 1850 in Stanley Co.,NC.

William Poplin of North Carolina Wife's name was Lucy.
16.180 William Poplin of Montgomery Co.NC was a private in the company commanded by Col Alston in North Carolina for 9 months. He was placed on the roll 12 July 1833. State of North Carolina, Montgomery co, 10 Oct 1832 appeared in court William Poplin, resident of said county and state, 83 y/o. He was born Feb 1749 and when he entered service, he lived in Chatham co. Col Philip Alston raised a troop of horsemen in Chatham co who were engaged to serve 3 months and they marched into South Carolina to join General Ashe's army who was then in South Carolina not far from Charleston. They joined said army near the Santin River and Poplin was placed under the command of Col Alston and Capt Walsh (who came from Taylorsville NC). From this place, Ashe's army crossed the Santin River at Nihon's Ferry leaving Charleston about 9 miles to the left and thence up the Savannah River to the town of Savannah Georgia where part of the British army was stationed. Ashe's army moved to Augusta and thence to Brier Creek in pursuit of the British who tore up the bridge at Brier Creek. Ashe's army halted here for about a week and was attacked by the British who had re-crossed the river. The Americans were defeated and 130 American prisoners were taken including Poplin. The prisoners were taken about 15 miles down the river to Savannah where for a week to 10 days they were confined in a large house built for a church. From here they were carried down to the mouth of the Savannah River and put on board a prison ship that was laying there. Poplin was confined here with other prisoners for about 6 months when he was induced from fear of starving to death to enlist in the British service. During his imprisonment he was given a pint of rice a day and 3/4 pounds of fresh beef a week. He left Col Alston on the same prison ship. After enlisting in British service he was carried up the to Savannah and made to work on the fortifications there for 4 to 5 weeks. At the time, Savannah was surrounded by the American Army under General Lincoln on one side and the French on the other. Poplin escaped and went to General Lincoln who allowed him to go home to Chatham. A guard accompanied Poplin and others that were in a similar situtation to the Cumber River.Poplin stayed in Chatham about 12 months and moved to Moore county where he lived 3-4 years and then moved to Montgomery county where he has lived ever since. He had a certified affadavit from Hudson Taylor who lived in Chatham Co when Poplin returned from service.

Poplin Patter Vol 2. No. 1 "In Ross District of Stanley County NC Jeremiah Poplin had a 17 year old son named Green Poplin in 1850. From the information sent me by Mrs. D.G. Harwood, that Jeremiah was Jerry Poplin Jr. son of Jerry Poplin Sr. who was killed during the civil war. and was burried at Canton Baptist Church.

There were 6 Poplin families in Montgomery County in the 1810 Census, all living close to each other. Census records before 1850 only listed head of household, not spouse & children. John Alexander Poplin, who would be Jehue's brother, born abt.1803 had a son James Alston.....Jehue's son, William also had a son James Alston. Highly unlikely the name Alston would be in two unconnected families.

From Frank Poplin: "A cousin, (J.C. Pettit, grandson of Lucy Poplin, Jehue's daughter) in Decatur, TN, said that he remembered a Great-Aunt Rebecca Poplin Hawk and a great-uncle, Jehue Poplin coming to visit his grandmother.
There are records of them in Meigs Co. in 1860 and 1880." Rebecca Poplin Hawk was Rebecca Cooley, William Poplin's wife. William must have died or left her before Sept. 2, 1877, when she married William Hawk.
Also from Frank Poplin: "I visited J.C. Pettit, a distant cousin in Meigs Co.,TN and some other cousins there and they said Jehue Poplin (Jehue Sr's son;William's brother) used to come visit their grandmother, Lucy Poplin Pettit (James Alston's sister) and she called him "Uncle J." and that Rebecca Poplin Hawk use to come up from Chatanooga Tn to visit, so based on these facts, I say William Poplin from Meigs Co.,TN who served in Capt. A.F. Boggs Co...... during the Civil War and the son of Jehue Poplin (born 1804) is the father of James Alston Poplin."
