Battle of Wahab Plantation ... Images of Union Co. NC Wills & Estates 1842 to 1897 ... #genealogy ... #northcarolinapioneers

The Battle of Wahab Plantation
By Jeannette Holland Austin Jeannette Holland AustinProfile

The Wahab Plantation in Union County was owned by the militia Captain James A. Walkup who served as a guide for William R. Davie under the Patriot Militia. On September 21, 1780, the patriots made a surprise attack on the Wahab Plantation where Loyalist were encamped under the command of Colonel Banastre Tarleton, who was not in command upon that day because he was sick with yellow fever. The Loyalists were camped on the West side of the Catawba River while the army of General Charles Cornwallis was camped on the East side. Davie opportunistically decided to attack the Loyalist camp, and succeeded in driving them back in complete surprise and with heavy casualties. He retreated before the British regulars arrived. The British took their revenge by burning down the house of Captain Walkup.

Captured but Released .... Surry Co. NC Wills & Estates 1771 to 1792 ... #genealogy .... #northcarolinapioneers

Captured, but Released
By Jeannette Holland Austin Jeannette Holland AustinProfile

Reuben Harrison volunteered for the Revolutionary War in Surry County. He was sent from Flower Gap in Surry County by Colonel Richardson Owens with a letter addressed to Colonel Benjamin Cleveland advising Cleveland when to advance upon the Tories. While on his way, he was captured by the Tories who mal-treated him and threatened to hang him. A Tory named George Roberts shook him severely to make him disclose his business, but the letter was hidden in the crown of his hat, and the Tories finally released him. Afterwards, Harrison returned safely to Flower Gap. 

Surry county was formed in 1771 from Rowan County. It was named for the county of Surrey in England, birthplace of William Tryon, Governor of North Carolina from 1765 to 1771. In 1777 parts of Surry County and Washington District (now Washington County, Tennessee) were combined to form Wilkes County. In 1790, the county seat was moved to from Richmond to Rockford, then finally in 1853 to Dobson, North Carolina.

Lutherans in Stokes County ... Images of Wills & Estates 1792 to 1864 ... #genealogy .... #northcarolinapioneers

Lutherans in Stokes County
By Jeannette Holland Austin Jeannette Holland Austin

In the year of 1786 Rev. Christian Eberhardt Bernhardt, a native of Stuttgard, in the kingdom of W├╝rtemberg was sent on his mission to America. Bernhart was ordained in his native country, and landed at Savannah, and then proceeded to Ebenezer, Georgia, where he remained for twelve months. In 1787 he went to Rowan County, North Carolina and labored among the churches to the East of the Yadkin River (Davidson County). In 1788 he took charge of the congregations in Stokes and Forsyth Counties, which had been organized and frequently visited by Rev. Nussmann. It was in Stokes County that Rev. Bernhardt was married, but the records do not mention the name of his wife. One year later he removed to Guilford County, where he remained to the close of the year 1800, when he accepted the call to become the pastor of Zion's and several other Lutheran Churches in Lexington District, South Carolina. 

Source: Account furnished by his daughter-in-law, the widow of the late Rev. David Bernhardt; History of the Lutheran Church in North Carolina Bernheim, G. D., 1872, Volume 08, Pages 758-796 

Stokes County was formed in 1789 from Surry County and was named for Capain John Stokes, who was wounded during the American Revolutionary War when the cavalry of British Colonel Banastre Tarleton almost destroyed the Virginia Regiment led by Colonel Abraham Buford in the Waxhaws region in 1780. After the war, Captain Stokes was appointed a judge of the United States district court for North Carolina. In 1849 the southern half of Stokes County became Forsyth County. The county seat is Danbury.

    Images of Sampson Co. NC Wills 1821 to 1860

    Sampson, NC
    Sampson County was organized in 1784 and taken from neighboring county of Duplin. Land from neighboring Wayne County and New Hanover counties would be annexed later. The settlers were Scotch-Irish immigrants from North Ireland, many of who came to the colony of North Carolina under the protection and inducements of Henry McCulloch, a wealthy London merchant. The community of Taylors Bridge, located about halfway between Clinton and Harrells in lower Sampson County (at the time Duplin County), was one of the earliest European settled areas of the county, with pioneer families living there as early as the 1730s or 1740s. The Swiss from New Bern came into this area during the mid-eighteenth century. The county was named after Lieutenant General John Sampson, the first mayor of Wilmington, North Carolina.

    Gold Mines in Rutherford County
    By Jeannette Holland Austin Jeannette Holland Austin

    Bechtler Mint minted over Two million in gold specie during the 1830s and 1840s. In July of 1831, Christopher Bechtler opened a metalworking shop and press where he and his sons fabricated eagle coins. The privately owned mint allowed western North Carolina miners a convenient way to bring their gold to market; however, by the time of the California Gold Rush in 1849, the Bechtler Mint discontinued its services in Rutherford County.

    Rutherford County was formed in 1779 from the western part of the former Tryon County. It was named for Griffith Rutherford, leader of an expedition against the Cherokee in 1776 and a general in the American Revolutionary War. In 1791 parts of Rutherford County and Burke County were combined to form Buncombe County. In 1841 parts of Rutherford County and Lincoln County were combined to form Cleveland County. In 1842 additional parts of Rutherford County and Burke County were combined to form McDowell County. Finally, in 1855 parts of Rutherford County and Henderson County were combined to form Polk County.
