My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.

In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck

He was of the

roots in
Burlington and Hunterdon Counties, NJ.  Samuel Curtis b. about 1720 is
the earliest known ancestor in this line and we have yet to find the missing

1832 Oct 31: State of North Carolina, County of Wilkes
On this 31st day of October 1832 personally appeared in open Court, before the Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions of the County of Wilkes and State of North Carolina, now sitting, William Johnson a resident of the County of Wilkes & State of North Carolina aged Eighty one years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth, on his oath, make the following declaration, in order to attain the benefit of the act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832.
That he was born in the County of Fauquier in the State of Virginia on the 6th day of April 1751 (the record of which was entered in his Bible by direction of his father) where he continued to reside until he was about 15 or 16 years of age,(1766 sic) when he removed with his father to the County of Loudoun in the same State where he lived about two years (1769 sic), when he again removed with his father to Rowan (now Wilkes) County in North Carolina.
In the spring of the year 1776, the Cherokee Indians were very troublesome on the Western side of the Blue Ridge [Mountains] in that part of the Country particularly now embraced in the limits of Ashe County N. C. and a requisition was made upon the militia of Wilkes County for a company to guard the frontier settlements on the Western side of the ridge from there depredations.

This deponent among others volunteered himself in the latter part of May in the year 1776 in the said County of Wilkes, and joined the company of volunteers commanded by Captain Joseph Herndon, and marched directly across the Blue Ridge near to where Ashe Court House now stands, where they found a number of the frontier inhabitants engaged in the erection of a fort upon reaching that place, Captain Herndon endeavored to prevail upon the inhabitants to abandon the Country and remove to the Eastern side of the mountains, but this they declined to do and after remaining there for some time in scouring the surrounding country, they returned home and was discharged. In this expedition this deponent believes he served about two weeks.


About the first of August following, this deponent again volunteered himself and joined Captain Benjamin Cleveland's company and rendezvoused near where Wilkes C.H. now stands, and as soon as the company could be properly organized, and the necessary arrangements made, they marched to the Pleasant Gardens in the County of Burke, where they joined the troops under General Rutherford [Griffith Rutherford]. In a few days after joining General Rutherford they marched direct to the Cherokee Towns of Cowee, Watauga, Oconoluflee [?] and some others not particularly recollected at what was called the Middle Towns, (the troops being a good deal sickly from eating roasting ears & fresh beef) a proposition was made by General Rutherford for a thousand volunteers of the ablest and stoutest man to turn out and march to the Valley Towns this deponent was one of the number, and as soon as the requisite number was made up they marched immediately to the Valley Towns, a distance of about sixty miles upon their arrival, they found a few straggling Indians (the balance having fled) whom they captured and kept prisoners after burning the Towns and destroying their corn and all the property they could find, they returned again to the middle Towns, where they rejoined that portion of the Army they had left After remaining a few days at the Middle Town until they rested and recruited, they set out upon their return to North Carolina, and after reaching the County of Wilkes, Captain Cleveland discharged his company & this deponent returned home, which place he reached
about the last of October, having been gone about three months.

From the time that the deponent returned from the Cherokee Nation until about the month of August 1780 embracing a period of nearly four years this deponent performed sundry short tours of duty against the Tories (who at that time were very troublesome) two of which were performed under Captain William Lenoir on the North Western side of the Blue Ridge in these two tours this deponent believes he served about a month and the particular periods of the other tours performed against the Tories cannot now be recollected About the latter part of August 1780 information was received by Colonel Benjamin Cleveland, that Major Ferguson [Patrick Ferguson] of the British Army was supposed to be approaching North Carolina from the South with a large number of British and Tories upon which Col. Cleveland issued orders immediately for all the militia in the County of Wilkes to rendezvous at the Court House this deponent immediately repaired thither and joined the company commanded by Captain William Lenoir after remaining at Wilkes C. H. for some time until the troops could be organized, they set out upon their march to oppose Major Ferguson upon the way they were joined by Colonel Campbell [William Campbell], with a Regiment from Virginia, as also by other troops from North Carolina when they had advanced perhaps to the Cherokee ford on Broad River it was ascertained that Major Ferguson was endeavoring to post himself on King's Mountain upon which it was proposed that all those who had horses or who could procure them, should proceed with all possible dispatch to engage with him this deponent having no horse, and not being able to procure one was necessarily left behind with the foot men, and did not reach the battle ground the battle having been fought and the Americans being on their return with their prisoners a short distance, when the foot men rejoined them after rejoining the Army, this deponent was detailed by Colonel Cleveland with others to take charge of the wounded (among whom was a brother of this deponent) and after making what preparations they could, and administering to their wants as much as possible, they set out in advance of the Army and proceeded on
until they reached Wilkes C H when Col. Cleveland directed this deponent to convey his brother home, as he was in a very helpless condition, and to remain with him until he should recover which this deponent accordingly did In this expedition, this deponent believes he was absent nearly 3 months, from the time that he rendezvoused at Wilkes C. H. until his return to that place not counting the time that he remained with his brother after their return though it was counted to him for a three months tour, and he drew pay for that length of time. –

In the spring of the year 1781 when Lord Cornwallis was marching through North Carolina, this deponent again volunteered himself and joined a company commanded by Captain Nathaniel Gordon -- the company to which this deponent belonged endeavored to form a Junction with General Greene's Army, which was supposed to be at that time somewhere on the waters of Dan River in the borders of Virginia but before they had reached the Shallow Ford of
the Yadkin, it was ascertained that Lord Cornwallis was ahead of them, and that he kept scouting and foraging parties constantly scouring the country so that they found it would be impossible to reach General Greene without running a great risk of falling into the hands of the enemy they accordingly took post at a place in the County of Surry where the village of Jonesville now stands and where they remained until they were discharged. -- In this expedition this deponent believes he served about two weeks.


This deponent has resided in Wilkes County ever since the revolutionary War, and resides there at this time He never received any written discharge from the service, nor has he any documentary evidence to prove it but refers to Mr. Elijah Vickes who served with him most of the time, whose affidavit is hereto annexed, as a witness who can testify to his service.
He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present, and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any State. Sworn to & subscribed the day & year aforesaid.
S/ R. Martin C.W.C.C. S/ William Johnson

On the day and year aforesaid, personally appeared in open Court before the Court aforesaid, Elijah Vickes who being first duly sworn according to law, deposeth and saith, that he served with William Johnson the above applicant during the following tours of service to wit: first under Captain Joseph Herndon to the Western side of the Blue Ridge against the Cherokee Indians secondly, under General Rutherford to the Cherokee Nation, and thirdly, under Colonel Cleveland to King's Mountain and further, that the said three several tours of duty as set forth and specified in the foregoing declaration as having been performed by the said William Johnson, were performed by him and that the remaining tour of duty set forth in the said declaration, he believes (from his knowledge of the character of said William Johnson) was performed by him.
Sworn to & subscribed the day and year aforesaid.

Capt. Robert Cleveland
famous Capt of NC Militia in Battle of Kings Mt.; Saved his brother Ben's life
Capt. Robert Cleveland "commanded a company in the Revolutionary war, in a regiment in which his brother, Col. Benjamin Cleveland, was in command. Their regiment took part on the colonial side in the battle of Kings Mountain." (Brant & Fuller, p401)
"... was a Captain at King's Mountain, but his company seems to have been mostly among the footmen in the rear." (Draper, p.458)
Capt Robert (4) Cleveland, one of the heroes of King's Mountain. Lived in Fauquier co, VA, _Records of Prince William Co, Brentsville, VA., Book T, 1775_ - Lease Holtzclaw to Robert Cleveland of Fauquier co, ; 1775, Robert Cleveland to Holtzclaw for rent of farm in Prince William Co.
He accompanied his brother, Col. Benjamin Cleveland, to NC. Removed from Prince William Co 1778 and settled in Wilkes Co, on the Yadkin River, and owned land there

Capt. Robert Cleveland was captain of a volunteer company in Col. Benjamin Cleveland's regiment at the battle of King's Mountain Oct 7, 1780, and bore a most important part. A soldier of his corps, Dan White, used to say that to this brave Captain was due the success of the battle; for in the middle of the conflict, when all were giving away before Ferguson's bayonets, Capt. Cleveland alone stood firm and unmoved, sustained the charge until Col. Benjamin Cleveland could rally the flying troops and come to his assistance. He was accessory to many of the daring deeds of Col. Ben, Apr 15, 1781, he lived on Lewis's fork of the Yadkin, when he gathered some 30 good men and next morning rescued Col. Cleveland, a prisoner of the Tories, with whom they had a skirmish. Capt Robert spent the remainder of his life on the Yadkin River. He was prominent in the community, and was one of the 5 Cleveland's (the others ...) who have served in the Electoral College, and was the first one of the name to be chosen to that distinguished and responsible office. He was elected for the 6th presidential election, 1809. North Carolina electors: ....
Capt. Robert Cleveland and his first wife, Aley Matthis are buried side by side within 150 yards of the old homestead dwelling now owned and occupied by Jesse Yates.
(Cleveland, 1899, p.2070)

Sallie Johnson Cleveland died at the home of her daughter Fanny in Monroe Co, TN, after 1812. (Cleveland, 1899, p.1068).

 

Robert & his brother Ben were pioneers in settling Wilkes County, NC. They hunted a great deal with Daniel Boone prior to the Revolution.

1783 Era:

Norman Parks wrote:
The Parks family escaped the clear focus of history in
Virginia until George Washington's day. An earlier Parks had been killed by the Indians in 1619 near Jamestown. Several other men bearing that name appear later in the colony's history. But the roots of the present Parks family are found in one Parks for whom George Washington did some surveying. One married into the Curtis family, and the tie of George Washington Parke Curtis to the Lee family gives support to the claim of Joe Wiley Parks that he was related to Robert E. Lee. Thomas Parks, one of this family, settled in Albemarle County in the Virginia Piedmont some years prior to 1727. Since he left all of his property to his oldest son, his band of younger sons moved to North Carolina, settling along the Yadkin River high on the Piedmont in what is now Wilkes County. Here in 1783, Thomas Parks, son of a fighter at Kings Mountain, was born. In 1811 he took wife a Quaker girl named Sally London, and their first child,
 John London Parks, was born in 1812. By 1814 the family was settled in
Maury County, Tennessee. Grown to manhood, John London Parks met Melinda Crafton at the Roberson Fork Church of Christ and made her his wife in 1836.

Here is information from a book "Like Ole Man River", A History of the Parks, Boshears, Crafton, McGuire, Tipton and Dial Families - From 1607 TO 1986. Written by Norman Lexington Parks, born 1904, TN. 

Norman L. Parks was a professor at a Middle Tennessee University. His parents were Joe Wiley Parks and Victoria Boshears. He said Thomas de Parke, born in the 1600's was progenitor of his Parks lineage

From: Paul Dodson kathleendotson@comcast.net 

1738 abt William Dodson son of Thomas Dodsons Grandson of Thomas Dodson and Great Grandson of Charles Dodson is born, probably in Prince William County, now Fauquier Co. Va. He died 1832 May 6 in lands that were in Iredell Co. NC.

 1763 Nov 23, Faquier County Va. Reverend William Dodson was married his first time as Williamson Dodson to Winifred Johnson aka Winifred Johnston the Daughter of Jeffery Johnston and wife Rachel of Fauquier CO. Va.

 Winnifred Johnson-Johnston evidently died before 1789 when her father died in Wilkes County NC, naming his grandchildren James, Rachel and Winifred Dodson in his will. In fact Winifred Johnson Dodson probably died several years earlier maybe in the 1770's.

 Rev William Dodson married a 2nd time but no reocrd of this marriage has been found and the name of his 2nd wife is unknown. William Dodson is probably the William Dodson who became a member by Baptism of Broad Run Church of Fauquier Co. on 1764 May 13 and who was ex communicated in 1769.

 It is unknown exactly when William Johnson moved to Halifax/Pittsylvania County Va area but he probably came with his Father IN Law Jeffery Johnson who was a witness to a bond and deed of Thomas Dodson and John Creel in Pittsylvania Co. 1773 June ( Pittsylvania Co. Deeds 3-361)

 William Dodson received by will of his Father Thomas Dodson dated 1779, after the death of Thoams Dodson's wife " The plantation and tract of land whereon I now live( we have not located a record of the sale of this land.

 It was reported in the annual register of the Baptist Denomination, by John Asplund that William Dodson was the minister of Cascade Creek Church in 1780. William Dodson is also credited with organizing Arbor Baptist Church in 1785, and Millstone Baptist Church in 1789, both in Halifax County Va. (Halifact by Dr. W.B. Barbeer Danville Va 1941).

 William Dodson is probably shown on Hailfax Co. Tax list from 1782 to 1789.

 From 1790 to 1795 William Dodson is fond on the Tax Lists of Pittsylvania Co. He lived on cascade Creek near his son in law Elijah Dodson-Dotson. Cascade Creek is the extreme Southwest part of Pittsylvania County and flows across the State line into North Carolina.

 It is possible William Dodson was preaching in NC churches before he moved his residence there. ( To NC)

 Willliam Dodson moved to NC soon after 1795 as in April 1799 he entered 200 acres on the Bushy Mountains in Wilkes County NC and in 1800 he entered 300 acres on Beaver Creek. He sold 200 acres to Thomas Phillips on 1801 May 4th (Wilkes Cou.. Deeds & grants 1797-1805 pg 4). The Brushy Mountains lie against the present border of Wilkes and Irdell Co. NC. However William Dodson and his son William Dodson are on the tax lists for Wilkes County in 1805, taxed for 300 acres and 100 acres in Capt. John Carne's District.

 1811 Dec 9, William Dotson received a NC grant for 50 acres on the waters of Little Lower River, Burke County NC (Now Alexander Co NC) and on 1812 Nov 28, he received another grant for 50 acres on Lamberts Fork of Lower Little River ( Wilkes CO. Deeds G/H-394 and G/H-479 ( some of these might be for his son William Dodson).

 William Dodson's church activities in NC are noted in Johnson J. Haynes "The land of Wilkes 1962". Mr. Haynes says that "Among the arms of Flat Rock Church constituted in 1783 May, was Warrior Church constituted in 1799 May" and now called Zion Hill Church, located at Boomer on the waters of Warrior Creek, a Southern Branch of the Yadkin River which rises in the Brushy Mountains.

 The name Zion Hill church was constituted in 1814 April with William Dodson as Pastor. He also served as Pastor at King's Creek Church between 1800-1810.

 Fishing Creek Church located on old Highway 60, is about 4 miles East of Wilkesboro, and was constituted in an arm of Brier Creek church, the result of a  petition filed by members of Brier Creek church who lived some distance from the church. The Petition was signed by William W. Wright, clerk dated the first Saturday in March 1822 and was authorized by Brier Creek and its Pastor. William Dodson and William Gilliam formed the presbytery who constituted it on 1822 Aug. 4. Thtese were Baptist Churches.

 The Rev. Elias Dodson in his manuscript said that Rev. William Dodson preached in Virginia for 30 years and then moved to Iredell Co. NC in 1797 and preached nearly all the time until he died in 1832. While the Rev. William Dodson may have died in Iredell Co. NC he spent a good many years as a resident of Wilkes Co. NC where he was on the census for 1810 and 1820. Rev. William Dodson died at the home of a daughter in Present Alexander Co. NC.

 The Present Alexander Co. NC (formed 1846) where Elder William Dodson spent his latter years was composed of the older counties of Iredell, Wilkes and Burke. The Central portion of Alexander Co. has had a checkered history because the three older counties met there between 1789 to 1841 and the county lines between these three counties shifted back and forth.

Notes: William Dodson’s Brother is Thomas Dodson known as Second Fork born Sept 1728 in Richmond CO. Va. As he lived on the 2nd fork of Birch Creek. He owns lands in Pittsylvania County and in Halifax Co. Va. Thomas Dodson married Mary Neville the daughter of who lived in Prince William Co. Nov 11 1766 he arrived in Halifax County Va and was under the care of Birch Creek Church.

3rd Sat. of March 1792 he Thomas Dodson is found in the records of Baptist Church on “ North Holston in Hawkins County” he is there with the following Thomas Dodson and Mary, Jesse Dodson and Ruth, Elisha Dodson and Rachel, Thomas Dodson, Nancy Dodson, Elizabeth Dodson, Utally Dodson, Alsey and Winifred Johnson. This church was located in Grainger Co. formed from Hawkins CO. and Knox Co. in 1796 very near the Hawkins Co. border. Of note is Thomas Dodson’s son Jesse Johnson married Judith Combs in 1793 Halifax Co. Va. And they became members of Big Spring Baptist Church which was the parent Church of Rev. Thomas Murrell’s church. In 1793 Rev. Jesse Dodson the brother of William Dodson and of Thomas Dodson is the minister of this Church.

 In Rev. Thomas Murrell’s church is Agness Johnson the wife of Hudson Johnson

Notes: in 1837 the Widow Ann Johnson is in Humphreys Co. Tn District # 10, living by Elijah Dodson who is married to the Daughter of Rev. William Dodson and Winifred Johnson. Winifred Johnson is the daughter of Jeffry Johnson and wife Rachel

 State of North Carolina, County of Wilkes

 

 On this 31st day of October 1832 personally appeared in open Court before the Court of

Pleas & Quarter Sessions of the County of Wilkes & State of North Carolina now sitting, William Johnson Esquire a resident of the County of Wilkes & State of North Carolina, aged 78 years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth, on his oath, make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832.

 

That he was born on the 28th day of July 1754 in the County of Amelia & State of

Virginia, (the record of which is entered in his family Bible) where he lived until his father removed to Johnston County (now Wake) North Carolina, at which time he was very small. He lived in said County until he was about 17 years of age, when he removed with his father to the County of Rowan (now Surry) in the same State, where he lived until he entered the service of the United States as a volunteer in the month of February 1776 in a company of volunteers commanded by Captain Hamblin, and marched forthwith to Cross Creek or Fayetteville, with a view of suppressing the Scotch Tories who were at that time committing great depredations in that section of the Country -- before how were they reached the scene of their expected operations, an engagement had been fought between the Tories, under command of General McDonald, and the Americans under General Moore, Colonel Caswell & Colonel Lillington at a

bridge on Moore's Creek, in which the former were defeated & taken prisoners. After the

engagement was over the prisoners were brought to Fayetteville where this deponent was

stationed as one of the guard for a considerable time and until the prisoners were sent off -- this deponent was one of 12 persons detailed from Captain Hamblin's Company to form part of the guard to convey the prisoners to Halifax, but for some reason unknown to this deponent they did not go, and after being detained there some time after the principal part of the troops were discharged, they were also discharged and returned home, which place this deponent reached some time in the month of April, having been in service about 2 months and a half –

 

In the month of July or August following the deponent again volunteered himself as an

Ensign in the company of Captain Samuel Mosby, under a commission given him by Governor Caswell, and rendezvoused near old Richmond in the said County of Surry, where they remained about a week, making preparations for their intended expedition, and thence marched across the Blue Ridge to Fort Chissel near the Lead mines in Virginia, where they remained a few days and thence marched direct to the Long Islands of Holstein [sic, Holston River] where they joined the Virginia troops under ColonelChristie or Christian, and after remaining there about 2 weeks,

they marched as direct as they could to the Cherokee Nation -- upon arriving at the Cherokee Towns they found that most of the Indians had fled and abandoned the Towns; & after destroying their towns, corn and such other property as they could find, they marched back as far as the Tennessee River where they were halted until they received their rations to carry them home, and then set out for home which place this deponent reached about 19 November -- having been in service during this tour from 3 to 4 months

 

-- From the time that this deponent returned from the Indian nation until the Spring of the year 1780, (at which time this deponent removed into Wilkes County) he performed several tours of duty against the Tories in various parts of the County but the length of each and the particular circumstances connected therewith, he cannot now after a lapse of so many years pretend to recollect --

 

In the month of March 1781 directly after the battle of Guilford, this deponent was drafted for a short tour, to oppose Lord Cornwallis who was supposed intended to return to South Carolina, and rendezvoused at Hamblin’s old store where he joined the company of Captain John Cleveland (son of Colonel Cleveland) and marched direct to the old trading Ford on the Yadkin [River] near Salisbury, with a view of opposing the passage of Lord Cornwallis -- and after being stationed there for a short time, it was ascertained that Lord Cornwallis had marched for Wilmington, when there being no longer any necessity for their services, they were discharged and returned home, having been in service during this expedition about 3 weeks --

 

This deponent has resided in the County of Wilkes ever since the revolutionary war, and

resides there at this time –

 

He has no documentary evidence to prove his services, the commission given him as Ensign by Governor Caswell having been lost or mislaid for many years –

 

He has no discharges, nor has he any recollection of ever having received any -- nor does he know of any person living whose testimony he can procure, who could testify to his service, but refers to Colonel William P. Waugh and Samuel F. Patterson as persons to whom he is well-known and who can testify as to his character for veracity and their belief of his services as a soldier of the revolution --

 

 He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present,

and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any State.

 

Sworn to & subscribed the day & year aforesaid

Researcher Notes:

wow!  You really have collected a lot of info. Thanks vey much for sending it all. There were several references in there to my Alexander Johnson, who married Franky Gambill.  I think I've really exhausted all the paper trail that exists, in Ashe and Wilkes Counties, and nowhere is there the slightest clue to his origin.  Based on his census ages, he would have been quite a young man when he fought with Martin Gambill, but all the contemporary  Wilkes county Johnsons who could have been his father seem to have left wills naming all their children, and he wasn't one of them.  So he must have moved there at a very young age.  That's why I suspect that he was related to one of the other Johnson families as a nephew or cousin.  Do you know if any of the descendants of Jeffrey Johnson, or his sons William and Samuel, all of whom were mentioned prominently in your document, have been DNA tested?  If I could find a male line descendant of Alexander and sponsor him for DNA testing, finding a match to a Jeffrey descendant would tell me that I should look in Fauquier, VA for his parentage.

 

In case you or any of your contacts are interested in Alexander, my data on him is on my website at this link.

Researcher Notes:

Alexander Johnson lived on the South Fork of the new River near the mouth of Cranberry Creek.  That area was part of Wilkes County when he first appeared on the scene, and then became part of Ashe.  But he didn't buy that land on New river until over 10 years after he was shown in the census as living in that area. 

 

According to the info given in the pension papers, he had some reason to visit in the home of John Gambill, down in Wilkes County (John lived on he Roaring River).  He later married John Gambill's daughter. 

 

I believe the Jeffrey Johnson family lived in the Roaring River area, although further down river.  There was also a Thomas Johnson/Johnston in Wilkes County at the time who if I remember correctly also lived in the Roaring River area, in fact, I think he was farther up river than Jeffrey.  

 

So Alexander could have been in the Wilkes area visiting Johnson relatives.  Or he could have known John Gambill because he fought in the company of John's younger brother Martin. Or another possibility is that he came down from Culpeper County, Va with the Gambill family in the first place.  I've gone through all the wills and deeds and tax lists of all the early Wilkes County Johnsons, and I can't find any record connecting any of them to Alex.

Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1820 at Ashe County, NC, as follows: 120001-11201. William is married and has his own household. Elizabeth is married to Henry Eller and is in his household. I suspect that John died, because the other older son is gone here and is not in his own household.15 

Fact 1

15 November 1828 

On 15 November 1828, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson sold to James Gentry 100 acres for $200 and 50 acres for $50. The 100 acre tract adjoined Silas Branch, Fletcher and Holeman. The 50 acre tract was on the north side of the New River at the mouth of Poison Branch. Both deeds were witnessed by James Smith and William Johnson.

Fact 1

28 February 1831 

On 28 February 1831, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson sold to Richard Gentry for $300, 100 acres adjoining Johnson and McMillan. It doesn't say "said Johnson," so I'm not sure if it means Alexander's own land or some other Johnson. Also no river or creek is mentioned..18 

Census

1840 

Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1840 at Ashe County, NC, as follows: 0100100001-010010001. I believe the 2 young children to be the 2 living with James and Franky in 1850. The 20-29-year old man is probably James (who would turn 30 in 1840) and the 20-29 year old woman is Sookey. Catherine is probably the 30-39 year old woman in the household with Henry and Elizabeth Eller (her sister). Sarah is married by now to William Weaver and is in his household.

[It is possible that the "1859" is a transcription error, since Sept 9, 1855 is the date of the other document. Also Nancy Gambill was 90 in the 1850 census of Ashe Co, NC, which would make it 1855 if she was 95.]

Researcher Notes: This is where my John Riddle was later on. He came from Rowan. I don't have Noah's land but this is the same area he was in on the School census. Benj and Zadock Martin came from Rowan. They were both the brother's of Asa Martin of Rowan. All 3 brother's came from maryland. Benj Martin's daughter Charlotte was first married to " A " George Anderson ( not sure which one ) and Charlotte then married Thomas Cook. This is per wills on Benj Martin and Thomas Cook. This area would be considered Wrights and Gilreath Dist.

 

There were 2 sets of Martin up there. Benj/Zadock and the John/Isaac Martin line. John/Isaac line were Dr. and Lawyers and came from VA and are not kin to Benj and Zadock

 

I forgot to mention there were 2 Benj Martin's. One was the Zadock/Asa line from Rowan and Maryland. This Benj Martin's will is dated 1807. The other Benj Martin will is dated 1818 and he belongs to the Isaac/John Martin line that came from VA

1816 Dec 9 Will of Charles Johnson

In the name of God amen I, Charles Johnson, of Wilkes County and State of
North Carolina, being of sound mind and memory, knowing the uncertainty of
this mortal life and the certainty of death being desirous of settling
temporal business do make this my last will and testament, revoking all
other before...
 
First to my dear loving wife Hannah Johnson during her life or widowhood all
my land and plantations whereon I now live, containing three hundred and
sixty and a half acres, the same to be at her disposal in settling my sons
Israel and Permanes when for the same at her marriage or decease aforesaid
land I gave and bequeath to my above mentioned sons the aforesaid land
 
I gave to my son Israel fifty acres of land lying on the head of the long
branch ajoining William Wilson's land. And I also give to my son Israel a
small feather bed and such furniture as can be spared by his mother and one
cow and calf or pig with calf.
 
And I gave to my daughter Elizabeth Jarvis five shillings. 
 
And I also gave to my daughter Jean Mize five shillings. 
 
And I also gave to my daughter Ann Ball five shillings. 
 
And I also gave to my daughter Lydia Sale five shillings. 
 
And I gave to my daughter Mary Stanley five shillings,  
 
and I alsogave to my daughter Luce Ball five shillings, 
 
and I also gave to my daughter Hannah Howard five shillings.
 
I gave and bequeath to my son Charles Johnson five shillings, 
 
and I gave to my son Robert Johnson five shillings, 
 
and I gave to my son Joseph Johnson five shillings and my reason for so doing is because I gave them their share of my estate hereintofore when they left me
 
And the balance of my estate I lend to my dear loving wife Hannah Johnson
during her life or widowhood and all the balance of my estate I gave to my
son Permanes Johnson if he lives with his mother and takes care of her and
his sister Alce and keeps them living together as well as he can. And if he
should leave his mother and sister then I leave his mother to give him as
much of my estate as I gave his brother if his mother can spare it without
suffering. And if he goes away and will not live with her and and take care
of her and his sister Alce and my desire is that he should live with them
and if he will not then if any of his brothers or brothers-in-law will
undertake to live with my dear wife and daughter Alce and take care of them
and keep them from suffer and till the plantation and not waste the liven, then I gave
them that my son Permanes was to have had after my dear wifes death.
 
And as for my daughter Alce I leave her mother to gave her as much of my
living as I gave her sister and fifty dollars in trade at her mothers
decease to be paid her by them that have the living after her mothers death.
 
And lastly I do hereby nominate my dear wife Hannah Johnson executor with my
son Joseph Johnson and my executors of this my last will and testament
revoking all others by me made in testimony hereof I, Charles Johnson, have
hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this 9th day of December 1816.

On this 2nd day of May A.D. 1854 personally appeared Ambrose Johnson, Admt. of Mary Johnson, decd., late of Wilkes County, State of North Carolina and made the following declaration, an oath before the said Worshipful and the County court of the County and State aforesaid.

To wit - That he is the son of the said Mary Johnson, Decd., late of said County and of Captain Samuel Johnson Decd. late of said County and State. He states that his said father, the said Captain Samuel Johnson Decd. was in his lifetime an invalid pensioner of the United States on account of his, the said Captain Samuel Johnson's Revolutionary Services -- That he died in the month of Sept A.D. 1834 and that his said mother, the said Mary Johnson now Decd. - after the death of his said father, the said Capt. Samuel Johnson also drew a pension from the United States on account of the Revolutionary Services of her said husband, the said Capt. Samuel Johnson. He states that his said mother, the said Mary Johnson died in Wilkes County State of North Carolina on or about the 21st day of January A.D. 1853. The said Ambrose Johnson, Admt. as aforesaid states that he is the fifth child of his said parents - the said Capt. Samuel Johnson and Mary Johnson - that he is now in this present month of May A.D. 1856 sixty one years old. He further states that his said father, the said Capt. Samuel Johnson, Decd., always said that he had been a soldier in the war of the revolution, that he first went into the service of his country as a volunteer, a private under Capt. Benjamin Cleveland (afterward Colonel Cleveland). In the expedition against the Cherokee Indians in the summer of the year 1776 - under the command of General Rutherford and he states most positively that his said father, the said Samuel Johnson, always declared that he served thusly the whole of the war of the Revolution first as a private and then as a Captain - until the close of the war except such time as he was sick or when wounded and unable to serve, his said father always said that he served minus pay - with the exception of those inconsiderable interruptions - all of which the applicant surely believes - and what was always said and believed in the whole County - so far as he ever heard or believes - and as he always heard stated by many of the old soldiers who at times during the said war - the precise date he does not now recollect - but that he knows that it was sometime before the close of the war, and he entertains no doubt but that his father did continue in the service after his marriage to said mother who was Mary Hammons and lived at the time in Wilkes County and was the daughter of one Ambrose Hammons- he states that he has heard his said father speak of many expeditions on which he went during said war - which he can not now recount the names of places &c and that he was in the expedition and Battle of King's Mountain - in which battle he was severely wounded being shot through the abdomen, that he has many times seen the scars - he states that his father, the said Captain Samuel Johnson always said that he had no doubt but that said shot would have killed him had it not been for the fact that his bowels were entirely empty - That he had been for some three days previous to said Battle without eating anything except that him and three of his men that was with him ate one small terrapin, he being on a scouting and observing expedition - They having orders from the commanding officer to fire no guns, so that they could get no game, nor nothing else to eat. He further states that his said father, the said Samuel Johnson was placed on the pension rolls of the United States as an invalid pensioner without his own knowledge and without any application on his part. This he well recollects that it was done by the late Governor Jesse Franklin who was at the time a senator in the Congress of the United States - and he further states that his said father was so very indifferent about it at the time and during the time - that for some two or three years at one time he declined drawing the pension and then again upon solicitation resumed it again. He states that the said Jesse Franklin was an intimate acquaintance of his said father and was with him in the Battle of King's Mountain and that he was a nephew of Colonel Benjamin Cleveland. He states that his said father served under the command of Colonel Cleveland -- General Rutherford, Col. Campbell & others. He further states that his father the said Captain Samuel Johnson was a most intimate and confidential friend and officer of Col. Cleveland's and that as a mark of high esteem and approbation of his said father by Col. Cleveland.

 

That after the War of the Revolution that Col. Cleveland presented to his said father the said Capt. Samuel Johnson, his True battle sword and this applicant states that he now has in his possession and care the identical sword - that the said sword by some accident in the lifetime of his said father, the Capt. Samuel Johnson, got broken across near the middle of the blade - and that he saw his said father in his own work shop draw a shank to the point end of said sword and fasten it into the previous [?] same handle guard and mounting and that it is now about one half of its original length though otherwise is in a good State of preservation - that the said sword is silver mounted guard &c and Buck

horn handle - and if it was not for the reason of its mutilation he would with great pleasure present it to the United States. He further states that he never heard of any Captain Johnson of anywhere except his said father, the said Captain Samuel Johnson having been in this section of the State during the war of the Revolution nor has he ever heard nor does he believe that there was any other Samuel Johnson in this County or section of County at that time - he states that his grandfather's name, the father of the

said Capt. Samuel Johnson was Jeffrey Johnson, that he lived and died in Wilkes County and that he was a man quite advanced in years in the time of said war and never took any part in said war that he ever heard, he being too old - that his said father, the said Capt. Samuel Johnson was among the youngest of the family of children of his said father the said Jeffrey Johnson - he does not think that there was more than one other of the said family of his said grandfather younger than his said father, the said Samuel Johnson. He further states that some years after the death of his father, the said Samuel Johnson that his widow the said Mary Johnson who was very old and feeble both in body and

mind began to show evident and rapid loss of mind and memory, that sometime about the dates of 1838, 39 or 40 - he thinks that his said mother had most violent spell or paragsis [?] of convulsions which held her for some 24 hours or more as he was informed by the family - which seemed to have been induced from a great affright given her on account of a violent storm which occurred at the time in her neighborhood and that after that time her mind seemed to fail more rapidly and at times would be worse until finally for some time before her death it could not be said that she had any mind at all. So great was the decline of her mind and memory for many years before her death that at many times she

would not know her nearest neighbors or even her own children. This applicant states - as a circumstance - confirmation of this - that on one occasion - a good many years before the death of his said mother, the said Mary Johnson, that he went to see her as he frequently did - that on meeting with her she shook hands as usual with him but did not seem to recognize him or name him as usual - which he noticed at the time and that she went away to one of the servants and asked who he was - that the servant told her that it was Master Ambrose and that then and not before did she know him. And this

applicant verily believes that his said mother, the said Mary Johnson before her application for a pension had become so much impaired in mind and memory that she most likely to him did not remember the rank or services of her said husband or at least very little about it with any degree of certainty or distinctness and that as he thinks or believes had no competent person to advise her of her rights or interests and that when she had been in her right mind that she was - although a good and most

excellent woman and mother, without education, lived in a remote part of the country, knew nothing of law, or anything of her rights or claims under it.

 State of North Carolina, County of Wilkes: Summer Session Wilkes County Court

 

 On this 2nd day of Aug. A.D. 1854, personally appeared in open court Lewis Johnson and John S. Johnson, Sons of the late Capt. Samuel Johnson and Mary Johnson, now decd. of said County, and made the following declaration on oath: To wit: That the said Lewis Johnson is now in his 55th year of age and the said John S. Johnson in his 51st year of age, that their said father, Capt. Samuel Johnson, late of said County, was an invalid pensioner of the United States and that after his death his widow &

their mother the said Mrs. Mary Johnson, also drew a pension on account of the Revolutionary service of her husband the said Capt. Samuel Johnson. They State that their said father always stated - evidence their earliest recollection - that he had been an officer & soldier in the Revolution, that he had served six years of said war—that the balance of said war that he did not serve was taken up with a long illness he had on his return from the Cherokee expedition under Capt. Cleveland and General Rutherford in 1776 and the loss of time from his wound at King's Mountain Battle, and some other

small losses of time, making about one year out of the six years continued of said war, that he always said that he served to the close of said war. They State most positively that they have many times heard both their said parents speak of a particular occurrence in his said service after their marriage: that one Sabbath they were attending church at the Roaring River Meeting House in their neighborhood when a messenger arrived from the west of the Blue Ridge informing of some depredations of Tories, that their

said father immediately summoned such of his men as was at hand, armed, and hastened on the expedition and left their said mother to go home by herself, that they came up with the Tories, had battle, routed them &c and that they have heard their said father often speak of several like expeditions against the Tories; in that direction west of the Blue Ridge about the Peach Bottom Mountain and about the edge of Virginia, that he always spoke of those expeditions as having occurred late in the war and after his marriage with their mother. They both State that in passing from their residence in Wilkes County to Grayson County, Va. with their said father where they had a sister living (Mrs. Mary Bora) that their father has pointed out to them the spot at Cox's ford on the Big River in Grayson County, Va. on the north side of said river at the Peach bottom where they had a camp in one of his expeditions spoken of, all which they fully believe to be true, together with many incidents connected with said expeditions and service too tedious to mention. They are of the opinion that these terms of service was each of short duration, perhaps not longer than ten days each, but were quite hazardous and dangerous, and they here again State most emphatically on their oaths that from what their father always said in his lifetime and what was also said by their said mother whilst in her proper mind and what was always said by all the old people, the said Capt. Samuel Johnson, did continue in active service to the close of the war of the Revolution and did serve much after his marriage with their mother the said Mrs. Mary Johnson.

 

 The said Lewis Johnson states that he was married before the death of his said father and lived near him within about 3/4 mile and the said John S. Johnson that he lived with his mother all the time up to her death. They State that she died at her residence in Wilkes County, N.C. about the 21st day of Jany A.D. 1853, that the said John S. Johnson states that he made a record of her death and is correct. They both State that soon after the death of their father they think about the Christmas following came a year that their said mother was taken ill with a kind of spasm or fits, that those spells gradually grew worse in her and it was soon perceptible to them that her mind and recollection was failing her and that sometime about the year of 1838 or 9 as they think to the best of their recollection on the occurrence of a very violent storm in their neighborhood that she had a most violent attack of fits, that for some 24 Hours her life was despaired of and that after that her mind always seemed much worse until a total State of imbecility of mind and memory occurred. They State that for many years before her death that she was scarcely ever so that she knew anything and seemed to have no recollection at all - would not

know her nearest neighbors and very often not her own Children, not truly her said son the said John S. Johnson—who was constantly with her who for many years before her death was scarcely absent from her a whole day at a time and scarcely even of a night &c.

 

 They both State that they never knew what this said mother, the said Mary Johnson, stated in her declaration bearing date the 24 day of Jany A.D. 1839 until a copy of said declaration was lately shown to them by Dr. James Calloway. That neither of them was present when said declaration was made, that had they been present that they would have known that the statement therein made "That she was not married to him prior to his leaving the service" was incorrect. That this statement is contrary to what she always stated when she was of sound mind and memory as also did their said father the said Capt. Samuel Johnson. They State upon their oaths that at the time and date if this declaration that they do not believe that she was of sufficient mind and memory by any means to make a correct statement or declaration in the premises—And that further that they do not believe that at any time in her life she would have comprehended the meaning of this passage in her declaration unless it had been explained to her—That she was an unlearned woman raised in the backwoods and frontier of the County—and was all her life used to have spoken the language in its most plain and simple words—That the word 'prior' was a word quite unusual to be spoken in her neighborhood and time and we have no hesitation in stating that we do not believe that she understood—the meaning of this declaration—if at the time she was in her mind sufficient to know anything correct which we do not believe. We further State that the said James Martin, Esq., who drew up said declaration and witnessed it lived about 20 miles from her - that he was not to our knowledge or belief in the habit of filing up pension claims nor do we believe that he is at all well qualified so to do - that he was a man of good common sense—a Justice of the peace –and plain farmer. And we further state that after her pension was allowed that the said James Martin Esq. continued as long as he lived to regularly fill up her powers of attorney to draw her pension and that for many years before the death of the said Mary Johnson that his gave us direction "That when she made these powers of attorney that it was entirely unnecessary for her to be sworn—that she could not comprehend the meaning or obligation of an oath and only to let her make her mark to these papers—which [?] the [?] and we further state that the said James Martin Esq. is now dead—That he died at his residence in Wilkes County, N.C. we think about eight years ago or thereabouts - That we have no doubt but that if the said Martin was now living that he would fully substantiate the fact of her entire incapacity to make a correct statement at the time she made the declaration.

 

 We State that our said Father, the said Saml Johnson served under the command of Col.

Cleveland and that after the Close of said war that Col. Cleveland presented him with his fine Service Sword, which Sword has remained ever since in the possession of the said Capt. Saml Johnson to the time of his death and is now in the possession of his son, Ambrose Johnson of Wilkes County, N.C., though unfortunately was broken by accident.

 

 And we further State that to the best of our recollection and belief that the said James Martin Esq. acted as agent for our said Father Capt. Saml Johnson in drawing his pension for him as well as for several other of the old pensioners—and that we suppose that that was the way and reason that he happened to draw up the declaration for our said mother Mary Johnson and which we here again declare that we believe to be totally correct as to the aforesaid statement of [?] & [?] as thus stated as [?] stated by us in this paper.

Researchers Notes: This reference to her husband as an ‘invalid pensioner’ probably means that he was pensioned by the US as a result of disabilities suffered from wounds he sustained in the Revolution under Acts passed prior to 1818. The papers relating to such pensions were lost in fires in Washington City DC in the early 1800’s.
