DO NOT MERGE THIS MEMORIAL WITH ANY OTHER MEMORIAL. IT IS NOT A DUPLICATE OF ANY OTHER MEMORIAL. DEVIOUS PEOPLE KEEP TRYING TO STEAL MY MEMORIALS, BUT THE MANAGERS AT FINDAGRAVE HAVE STOPPED IT, AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO STOP IT. THE GENEALOGY SHOWN HERE IS ACCURATE & PROVEN…PLEASE STOP TRYING TO DESTROY IT.

This Back/Bach family is not related to Harman Back (aka Hermann Bach), from Freudenberg, Germany. A significant amount of documented research proves this.

John was the son of Henry Back and Elizabeth Hoffman. He was born in the far southern part of Culpeper County, Virginia that became Madison County, in 1792.

He was seen as living in his father's house, in the Madison County Personal Property Tax Lists, in 1794, 1795, and 1796.

He was listed, by his name, in the Personal Property Tax Lists, for the first time, in 1797, when he turned 21 years old (attached to this memorial).

Because men were first listed in the Tax Lists when they turned 21 years old, this 1797 Tax List proved that John was born in 1776.

Do not confuse him with the John Back who was born in 1774 (November 19, 1774), in Culpeper County, who later married Catherine Robertson--he later lived in Breathitt County, Kentucky. That John Back was the son of Joseph Back (1745-1819). THESE WERE 2 DIFFERENT MEN NAMED JOHN BACK.

The John Back who was born in 1774 was the son of Joseph Back (1745-1819), who was a brother of Henry Back (1743-1809), who was the father of the man on THIS memorial.

Here is further proof: John Back (born 1774) married Catherine Robertson in 1795. They lived on his great uncle's farm in Russell County, VA, from the time they got married, until 1810, when they moved to southeastern Kentucky. While they lived in Russell County, VA, John was listed on just about every Personal Property Tax List there, in that county, starting in 1796. He was listed on the 1797 Russell County Personal Property Tax List, along with his great aunt, Mary Marberry Back (who was a recent widow). That Tax List is also attached to this memorial. THIS TAX LIST PROVES THAT THESE WERE TWO DIFFERENT MEN...How else can you explain two men named John Back being on two different tax lists, in two different counties, 300 miles apart, in the same year? The same man couldn't be living in two places at once!

This proves that there were two men named John Back, who were born in Culpeper County, VA, around the same time: One man was born in 1776 (the son of Henry Back, and the man who is featured on this memorial), and the other man was born in 1774 (the son of Joseph Back, who was the brother of Henry Back).

John Back (born 1776) had first been included on the Madison County, Virginia Personal Property Tax Lists, listed with his father, Henry Back, in 1794, 1795, and 1796. When he turned 21, in 1797, he was then listed by his name (as all men who were age 21 and older).

In 1798, John Back (born 1776) left Virginia and moved to North Carolina. He probably moved there to be close to his aunt, Anna Catherine Hoffman Spilman, who was a half-sister to his mother Elizabeth. (Anna Catherine had married Harman Spilman.)

John Back got married around 1800, in North Carolina, but the name of his wife is not known. They lived in Lincoln County, North Carolina. They were seen living there, in the 1820 Census Report, near the South Fork of the Catawba River (attached to this memorial), and they had nine children (5 sons and 4 daughters).

It is not known what happed to him, his wife, or his children, after that 1820 Census Report. He died, sometime after 1820.
