about the 25th of June, 1776 Major Forney first entered the service, as one of the drafted militia in Capt.James Johnston's company, and Col. William Graham's regiment
Major Forney
Jacob Forney first settled on the creek near the present town of Denver, the scene of his Indian troubles. This farm passed to his son, Capt. Abraham Forney, a soldier of the Revolution, and yet belongs to his descendants. Gen. Peter Forney, son of the pioneer, was a patriot soldier, member of the House, Senate, and Congress. As presidential elector, he voted for Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and Jackson. He erected a forge at his home and Madison furnace on Leeper's Creek, that was afterwards owned by J.W. Derr. He obtained possession of valuable ore beds, and commenced building his iron works in 1787, and recorded that he produced hammered iron in his forge 26th August, 1788. http://www.ncvisitorcenter.com/Lincoln.html

Gen. Peter Forney, second son of Jacob Forney, Sr., was born in Tyron county (now Lincoln) in April, 1756. His father was the son of a French Huguenot, and his mother Swiss. His origin is thus traced to a noble class of people whose heroic bravery, unparalleled suffering and ardent piety are closely connected in all lands where their lots have been cast with the promotion of civil and religious liberty.

Gen. Forney was one of the earliest and most unwavering Whigs of the revolutionary struggle. He first entered the service about the first of June, 1776, in Capt. James Johnston's company and Col. William Graham's regiment. The command marched to Fort McFadden, near the present town of Rutherfordton, and found that the greater portion of the inhabitants had fled for protection against the Cherokee Indians. After remaining a short time at the fort, he joined a detachment of about one hundred men in pursuit of the Indians, under Captains Johnston, Cook and Hardin. They marched about one hundred miles, and not being able to overtake them, the detachment returned to the fort. http://www.accessgenealogy.com/scripts/data/database.cgi?file=Data&report=SingleArticle&ArticleID=0027969
Major Abram Forney, youngest son of Jacob Forney, Sr., was born in
Tryon county, (now Lincoln) in October, 1758. His father was a
Huguenot, and his mother Swiss. His origin is thus connected with a
noble race of people who were driven into exile rather than renounce
their religious belief under the persecutions which disgraced the
reign of Louis XIV, of France. Major Forney first entered the service
about the 25th of June, 1776, as one of the drafted militia in Capt.
James Johnston's company, and Col. William Graham's regiment. His
company was then ordered to reinforce the troops at Fort McFadden,
near the present town of Rutherfordton, and remained there until about
the 1st of August, when he returned home to prepare for the expedition
against the Cherokee Indians. The militia of Mecklenburg, Rowan,
Lincoln and other counties
were called out by orders from Gen.
Rutherford, who marched to Pleasant Gardens, where he was joined by
other forces. From that place Major Forney marched into the Nation
with a detachment under Col. William Sharpe as far as the Hiwassee
river, where they met with a portion of Gen. Williamson's army from
South Carolina. The expedition was completely successful; the Indians
were routed, their towns destroyed, a few prisoners taken, and they
were compelled to sue for peace. The prisoners and property taken by
Gen. Rutherford's forces were turned over to Gen. Williamson, as
falling within his military jurisdiction. The expedition then left the
Nation, and he reached home on the 13th of October, 1776. http://www.fullbooks.com/Sketches-of-Western-North-Carolina-Historical5.html

William Johnston, a physician, married Nancy Forney, and located at Mt. Welcome, General Forney's homestead. His five sons were gallant confederate Soldiers. William H., Robert D. and James F. entered into service in the Beatty's Ford Rifles, which was mustered into service as Company K, 23rd Regiment; William H. and James F. won captains commissions; while Robert D., by promotion became a distinguished Brigadier General; Joseph F., late governor of Alabama and now United States Senator from that state, was Captain of company A., 12th Regiment; Bartlett S. Johnston served in the Confederate States Navy. Dr. William Johnston was a son of Col. James Johnston, a soldier of the Revolution, one of the heroes of King's Mountain, the first Senator from Lincoln, and elder at Unity. When Gaston County was set up from Lincoln, Colonel Johnston's homestead on the Catawba fell in Gaston county. Dr. C.L. Hunter was a scientist and historian. He was the son of Rev. Humphrey Hunter, a soldier in the Revolution. Mary, daughter of Gen. Peter Forney, married Christian Reinhardt, a planter, and they migrated west. http://www.ncvisitorcenter.com/Lincoln.html

General Peter Forney_, (sketch of his life previously given)
married Nancy, daughter of David Abernathy, of Lincoln county. He had
twelve children:

1. Daniel M. Forney married Harriet Brevard, of Lincoln county.

Joseph Haden
Notes: 1786.  Sept. 19, Joseph Johnson & Mary his wife to Tunstal Quarles for 100 pounds land on waters of Phillis Creek, 261 acres. Bounded by William Payne, Jr. William Basket, Samuel Richardson, Robert Furbush & Stephen Lile.  Wit: J. Haden, William Barnet, P. Napier.  Signed: Joseph Johnson  Mary Johnson.  Oct. 9, 1786 Private exam and dower relinq by Mary Johnson.  Prov. June 7, 1787 by Joseph Haden, William Burnet, Patrick Napier (Flu. DB#2, 174).   By Bonnie Flythe
The Joseph Haden in this 1786 record, would be Joseph, born about 1752, son of John & Jean Moseley Haden, who married Mary Peatross.  He is the only available Joseph in the area of an age to create records.  He died, still in Fluvanna Co, 1820.
Joseph Haden, son of Anthony, was living in Rowan Co, NC by 1777; he was an uncle to Joseph who married Mary Peatross.
Here is an interesting exchange that contains three of the names in the above deed from Bonnie:

J. Haden, magistrate
, to the Executive, referring to a "malicious complaint" to be lodged against him &c, by which he is to be deprived of his place without a hearing -- Begs no action may be taken, until he may be summoned to answer the charges, when he will clear up all matter to the satisfaction of all unprejudiced minds. I'm happy to answer any questions. From: Kay Haden

1792, May 20th, Columbia
Col Hall will hand you the recommendation from the Court of Fluvanna for a Major of the Militia.  I am informed Capt Wm Payne has already furnished you with the same, with objections to my being commissioned. I am not acquainted with the objections he makes, but have been informed one is on account of being Inspector at Rivanna.  Its true I am, but that don't clear me of the Militia only in time of peace, but am subject to the Militia Laws in case of an invasion &c.  Therefore I consider myself as one of the Militia.  Another I suppose is informing you he is the oldest Capt'n, &c.  For this I refer to Col. Tunstall Quarles, who is now in Richmond.  I was a Capt of the Militia in the County of Albemarle before the division fo the County took place & after the division was commissioned in Fluvanna & performed my duty through the whole of the last war as a Captain.  When there Was Commissioners appointed agreeable to an Act of Assembly for recommending Officers, I was again commissioned, which I resigned a few years past.  In fact, I am the oldest officer in the County.  In another instance it may probably have been signified to you that there was not a full Court at the time I was recommended.  The truth of that is I was recommended without any solicitation.  There is only Nine acting Magistrates in the County, & six of them present.  There was not a dissenting voice amongst them & no other person proposed, the Magistrates present were also the senior Magistrates in the County. For the truth of my assertions I refer you to Col. T. Quarles, and also I refer to him and Mr. David Ross.  Respecting the whole matter, my general conduct & fitness to fill the office to which I stand recommended, & upon getting fully acquainted with the matter from them, I doubt not but you'll forward me a commission by Colo. Hall. I am, Sir,   Y'r mo. Ob't Serv't.
David Ross to the Governor
Richmond, May 26, 1792
I am informed that Capt. Jos. Haden of the County of Fluvanna has referred to me for information relative to his appointment as a militia officer.  I believe he has been a Capt. in the Militia since the first establishment of the county of Fluvanna & long before it was separated from Albemarle [1777].  Some years ago, I was app'd one fo the commissioners to nominate proper persons to the Executive as Militia officers for that county.  The Commissioners were unanimous in recommending Mr. Haden as a proper person for Captain; I had then & still have, full conviction in my mind that he's as well qualified for the duties of a Militia officer as most men in the county.
I have the honor to be with great regard & Esteem,    Y'r Hum Serv't
At a Court held for Fluvanna County on Thursday the 3rd day of May, 1792.
Present, the Justices of the sd County, to wit:  John Ware, John Napier, John Thompson, Wm. Oglerly, Duncan McLaughlin, James Payne, Gentlemen.  This Court doth nominate to his Excellency the Governor, Joseph Haden, Gent., as a proper person to execute the office of a Major in the militia of this County.

Male1778 Tax List. Captain John Johnston's District Rowan County.

Jno Johnston property (Capt.)

David Johnston property (Sr.)

Jacob Johnston property (Notes: Unknown)

Isaac Johnston property (Notes: son of David Johnson?)

Robert Johnston property (Notes: son of Capt. John Johnson)

Charles Johnston poll (Notes: Possibly from Orange)

Notes: In one list (1778) Capt. John Johnston listed Charles Johnson as a Tory. In another list he listed Charles Johnson Sr. & Jr. I do think they are their own separate and distinct family. I do wonder if he is the Charles Johnson that was in Granville, then Orange, now Rowan. It appears that he (Charles Johnson) left, not to return during the war. (In fact, the two are only are on the 1778 lists) (2 lists of Capt. John Johnston)

John Lops District

David Johnson poll

Notes: Probably, Isaac, Charles & David are sons of David.

1778-1815 Era: One more comment. My grandfather, Francis Johnston was in the Rowan, Iredell area from at least 1778 through 1815. He shows up on 1 marriage bond (1784), 1 state grant (1794) the 1790 & 1810 census. The 1800 & 1810 tax roll. So, even though Rowan has a good set of records, there is a lot missing.

Notes: I also learned that a County Clerk burned the Iredell Co. NC Marriage Records. From: Wirelake

1778 Rowan CO NC tax list of Capt. Johnson has

Evan Ellis SR,

1778 Jesse Glascock & his brothers Gregory & Peter are listed in the tax lists of Rowan County, North Carolina

Jesse Glascock was born ca. 1748 in Loudoun County, Virginia and remained
there for a time.
1783 Peter GLASCOCK wrote his will in 1783 in North Carolina. It was when this will was discovered in North Carolina in the 1950's that all of Peter's sixteen children were finally accounted for and the genealogical charting of this large branch of the family began to be possible. Apparently old Peter died shortly after his will was written, in 1784.

His will divided his plantation of 320 acres as follows: (1) "120 acres of land where I now live including the plantation" to his wife Mary;

(2) "100 acres of land part of the same tract I live on to be laid off on that side of the land adjoining Cedar Creek" to his son Charles; and

(3) "100 acres of land to be laid off on that side the land on Dutchman's Creek" to his son Moses. http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/GLASCOCK/2005-10/1128390487


Jesse Glascock was born ca. 1748 in Loudoun County, Virginia and remained

there for a time. In 1778 he & his brothers Gregory & Peter are listed in the tax lists of Rowan County, North Carolina. There he volunteered to serve in the
North Carolina militia when Cornwallis invaded the south & his pay voucher is in the North Carolina records. Family tradition relates that while in the militia he fought at the Battle of King's Mountain, South Carolina in 1780.

At about the close of the war he apparently returned to Loudoun County,

Virginia, & was married to a Miss Adams (said to be related to the President) for his first son was born in Loudoun County in 1781. In 1782 his father moved to North Carolina & settled on Dutchman's Creek in Rowan County. However
Jesse is shown on the 1782 Loudoun tax list with 1 white poll and 1 Negro slave. He received only 1 shilling in his father's 1783 North Carolina will. (Most of the property went to Peter's 2nd wife & her children in North Carolina, while the children of his first wife back in Virginia received 1 shilling each. Perhaps they had received an inheritance from him earlier, or when he married the 2nd wife, as was often the custom.).

In 1791 the Loudoun Court ordered Amos Dunham to pay Jesse 25 pounds of

tobacco for service as a witness. In 1795 he was again a witness in Loudoun
Court. Then in 1801 his son Enoch migrated from Loudoun County to Kentucky.
His father & family followed, probably a few years later, and in 1810 he is listed in the Hardin County, Kentucky, census -- age over 45, wife 26-45, 1 son 26-45 & 1 daughter 10-16. (The children are probably his younger children Abraham & Faner.) His older sons Enoch and Peter are listed in the Breckenridge County census of 1810.

Peter Glascock, Jr. was born ca. 1744 & went to Rowan County, North Carolina

at the time his father moved there. He married Elizabeth Madden, daughter of
Scarlett Madden (and granddaughter of John Madden & Bridget (Helm). The
Rowan census shows Peter the head of a family of 12 whites, comprised of 3
males over 16, 4 males under 16 & 5 females. Peter Sr.'s 1783 will specified
that his son Peter was to share in the division of his Negroes, live stock & other estate at the death of his wife, Mary. In 1798 Peter had a state land grant on Howard's Branch of Dutchman's Creek and another in 1799. In 1801 he deeded part of this land to Scarlet Glascock.

Gregory Glascock was born 21 Jan 1732. He moved to Rowan County, North

Carolina and died there in 1790, will proved 1790. He is probably the "Trusty
friend" of Peter's 1783 will. He married (1) ca. 1753-1755 a Rector or Fishback. and (2) Jane ----. He had a grant of 400 acres on the South side of Dutchman's Creek in Rowan County. He had large grants of land in Kentucky, possibly as a result of Revolutionary service. He remained all his life in Rowan County and died there in 1790.

There are a number of other records of Glascocks living in the area before 1800. Some of the early ones include:

1774 --Jane Glasscock joined Dutchman's Creek Baptist Church
1778 --George Glasscock lived on Dutchman's Creek.
1778 --Peter Glasscock entered 200 acres on Elijah's (Elisha's) Creek, a
tributary of Dutchman's Creek.
1778 --Gregory Glascock's 400 acres on south side of Dutchman's Creek
adjoin Christopher Booe, Hugh Montgomery and Henry Railsback.
1778 --Gregory, Jesse and Peter listed as taxable persons in Capt.
Johnson's District.
1783 --Peter's will filed. Has his signature "Glasscock"
1784 --Will of Peter Glasscock proved by Oliver Hendren, Basil Gaither
and Stephen Noland. "On the resignation of Gregory Glasscock,
letters issued to Mary and Spencer Glasscock."
1784 --Peter Glasscock ordered to oversee the road from Dutchman's
Creek to Elisha Creek with hands of the adjacent and to build a
bridge over Dutchman's Creek. (Must be Peter.)
1794 --Mary, widow of deceased Peter Glasscock of Rowan County, North
Carolina to their sons William, Wharton and Elijah. Wits. Basil
Gaither & Thos. Prather.
1797 --Spencer Glascock to Charles Glascock of Fauquier County,
Virginia 100 acres of land on waters of Dutchman's Creek left to
Charles by his father's will, adjoining Spencer.
1804 Spencer Glascock (then living in Tennessee) sold 127 acres on
both sides of Dutchman's Creek adjoining Gregory.

So it appears that at least some members of the family had migrated south to

North Carolina before or during the war. The route was down the Shenandoah
Valley between the mountains -- a natural migration route. From the records, it
is apparent that Glasscocks, Adamses and several other families from the
Piedmont in northern Fauquier County may have gone south at about the same
time. Some of them retrned to the north -- as did Jesse to live after the war -- while others stayed in the south.
