Revolutionary soldier Benjamin J Haygood was the son of James & Rebecca Haygood and brother to Mary Haygood. He may be the grandson of John Haygood but the records are spotty. The family name may have been Haywood, and/or Hawkwood. Other spellings appear to be Hogwood and Hagood. Virginia colony record keepers... According to "The Haygoods of Mars Hill" by Aubrey Morris the Haygood family came from Gloucester, England.

One Sons of the American Revolution application claims Benjamin was a private under Capt George Herndon and Wilcox. General Folsom's regt. National #57993. He enlisted in 1775 in Chatham, NC.
