Shenandoah County
Virginia, USA
Death: 1816
Mason County
West Virginia, USA

Nine brothers we are told by Historians and by family tradition, served the American Army in the cause of Independence 1774 to 1781. John attained the rank of Captain. He seems to have retained that rank among his brothers. He was their purchasing agent for the 6,000 acre tract of land along the Ohio above Point Pleasant, Virginia. To this they all came soon after their Mother's death in 1796. John was Captain of the Shenandoah County Company, born 1742, died 1816 (?).
