John VERNER "the Immigrant"

ABT 1725 - 1799

ID Number: I70022

  • RESIDENCE: IRE; Chambersburg, PA; Lunenburg, VA; NC; 1758 Abbeville Dist. SC
  • BIRTH: ABT 1725, Tyrone, Ireland
  • DEATH: 1799, Pendleton (now Anderson) SC
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2678]

Family 1 : Mary Cochran PETTIGREW
  1.  James VERNER

Notes


(John3 David2, Samuel1) "Her future husband, John Verner, at the age of 15, was on the same ship. Apparently, the Pettigrew family was looking after young John Verner who was to join his father at Chambersburg PA. Their plans were to settle in Lancaster County PA.
Mary moved with her husband and growing family along with the Pettigrew family into Virginia after Braddock's Defeat at Fort Dusquene (now Pittsburgh) in PA, 1755. Braddock's defeat precipitated many migrations of English-speaking rural Pennsylvanian settlers southward because of the threat if Indian attacks along the frontier. The opportunity to build larger plantations using slave labor also contributed to the southern migration. It is not known where they settled in VA, except that one of their children seems to have been born at Lunenberg County in the Shenendoah Valley.


Mary's father, James Pettigrew sold his lands in PA and rented a farm in Lunenburg County VA for a while. They did not stay in VA very long but migrated further south into the Carolinas, where they settled in the Abbeville District of SC in about 1758. Mary married John Verner in about 1758. John Verner migrated with the Pettigrew family into SC."
