Michael Lentz1

M, b. circa 1780, d. 25 April 1849
FatherJohann Sebastian Lentz1 b. 26 Aug 1735, d. 3 May 1808
MotherAnna Margaretha Bechtel1 b. c 1737, d. s 1824
     Michael Lentz was Marriage; Person Source.2 He Summary of the research situation on B9- Michael LENTZ/LENTS as of Sep 2005: Records on Michael Lentz/Lents and his family have been very limited. Part of the reason for this is that John Paul Lentz (JPL), compiler of Lentz Heritage, concentrated his efforts on records located in NC and left too much to others for research in IL and KY. We thought we knew with considerable certainty that B9- migrated to IL from NC at some time between 1810 and 1820 and then perhaps to KY, spending most, if not all, of the rest of his life in KY. Recently, it has become clear that the Michael LENCE we found in IL on the 1810 census is NOT our B9-Michael LENTZ/LENTS, because by the time of the 1820 census, we knew for sure that B9- resided in KY, and the Michael LENCE in IL was still lliving in IL in 1820.

, shows a document titled

SOLDIERS OF THE WAR OF 1812
ROLL OF LIEUTENANT SAMUEL VAIL's (LATE CAPTAIN OLDHAM'S) COMPANY,
SEVENTH REGIMENT, U.S. INFANTRY
--COMMANDED BY COLONEL WILLIAM RUSSELL

Lents, Michael,
Private,
Date of Appointment or Enlistment: January 1, 1814.
To what time engaged or enlisted: June 30, 1814.
Remarks: (None)

Apparently his first wife, Catherine Hornberger (or Hornbarger), died in KY some time after they settled in KY. Catherine had given birth to B91- Davidson Lents before they left Rowan County, NC. We know of no other children of this marriage.

He (B9-) married again, it is believed, on 10 Aug 1830 in KY, to a Mary Ann LNU (Last Name Unknown), with whom he had nine children. [NOTE: If he was born ca. 1780, as we believe, he would be 50 years old at the time of this marriage. It would be quite possible, of course, for him to have fathered nine children after this age. It is believed that his wife Mary Ann LNU died in 1846.]

Both JPL and Mrs. Judy Lents Sharp, of Pauls Valley, OK, left some information about their correspondence concerning B9- and his family. Mrs. Sharp had spent much time over many years doing first-hand research in OK, IL, and KY, visiting courthouses and viewing original documents; in the course of this, she found B9's Will, evidence that B9- had received a land grant in 1832 Marshall Co., KY, and that he died 25 Apr 1849 in Benton, Marshall Co., KY. [NOTE: Marshall Co., KY, like all counties in all states, changed over the years. The area was once part of the Chickasaw Indian lands acquired in the Jackson Purchase of 19 Oct 1818. From 1818 to 1822 the area that is now Marshall Co. was part of Hickman Co; from 1822 to 1842, it was the northern part of Calloway Co., and Marshall Co. was created on 1 Jun 1842.]

Reading what little is available about the correspondence between JPL and Mrs. Sharp, it appears that there was considerable disagreement and misunderstanding between the two about Mrs. Sharp's discoveries, with JPL declining to accept them. There is some evidence that he had received conflicting information from others and chose to accept it rather than Mrs. Sharp's information. JWL's NOTE: It appears to me--without having examined it myself--that Mrs. Sharps' information was of prime quality, and I think it is unfortunate that JPL did not follow up on it. It does not appear that JPL did much research of his own on the census records of IL, KY, and OK in the appropriate years. We have to recognize, of course, that it was much harder to view these census records when JPL was working on genealogy than it is for us today, with our computers, emails, and access to the internet, and that we don't know all the other circumstances of JPL's life during this time and the demands they put on him.

Michael Lentz was also known as Michael Lents.4 He was born circa 1780 at Pennsylvania; based on census records.1 He and Catherine Hornbarger Bonded by Henry Hornbarger, believed to be her brother, and Catherine
and Henry are believed to be the children of Valentine Hornbarger who
owned a farm near the Lentz farm. Witnessed by Eli Gaither.
Also see 'Rowan Marriages 1753-1868,' p. 238.3 He married Catherine Hornbarger at Rowan County, North Carolina, on 17 January 1800.5,6 Michael was listed as Dewalt Lentz Sr's neighbor on the 1800 Census at Rowan County, North Carolina; Davott Lence 2 males 0-9 (John 6; Bastian 4); 1 male 26-44 (Dewald); 1 female 0-9 (Elizabeth); 1 female 16-25 (wife 1).7 Michael was listed as the head of a family on the 1800 Census at Rowan County, North Carolina. Michael Lence 1 male 16-25 (Michael); 1 female 16-25 (Catherine).7 Johann Sebastian Lentz mentioned Michael Lentz in a will on 16 March 1807 at Rowan County, North Carolina."His will gives us the names of his children: Bastian Jr. Peter, Elizabeth, Dewalt, Adam, Ana Catherine, John, Margaret, Michael and Marie.8,9,3,10 He began military service in 1814 at Kentucky.11 He was a witness B22- Elizabeth Lentz was born 8 Jun 1790 in Rowan Co., NC. Her birth and baptismal records are in the Organ Church records, but no sponsor shows in the entry. She was married on 20 Feb 1817 to B42- Boston Lence (Lentz), and the marriage was bonded by B41- John Lentz, his brother. Elizabeth and Boston were first cousins. They moved to IL, where she died in 1824 or before, and B42- Bostan Lentz married SECOND to widow Sophia Lentz, widow of his cousin B25- Peter Lentz, Jr. Sophia is believed to have been a niece of the wife of B2- Peter Lentz, who was Maria Magdalena Hartline. (See B9- Michael.) Elizabeth had five children. Their children and descendents will be found under the family number of their father after this. Her five children: B221- Rebecca Lentz, b. 1816, m. 23 Feb 1839 in Union Co., IL to Paul Hoffner, who was born in 1813 in NC.

Checking the Mortality Schedules in Union Co., IL may help..13 He died before 1850 at Iowa; Unknown GEDCOM info: 15 S 1900 Date of death is based on the fact that he was missing from the 1850 census in Union Co. IL. Checking the Mortality Schedules in Union Co., IL may help..3 He Personal History of Michael Lentz (B9-) B9- Michael Lentz and Wife Cathering Hornberger in NC Records on this family are very limited. B9- Michael Lentz was born about 1780, based on census records. B9- married 17 Jan 1800 in Rowan Co., NC to Catherine Hornbarger, bonded by Henry Hornbarger, believed to be one of her brothers. Catherine and Henry were children of Valentine Hornbarger who owned a farm near the Lentz farm. We have no record of any children of B9- Michael and wife Catherine. It is believed Michael and Catherine left NC soon after B9- sold the old homeplace on 25 Mar 1809, and they show in Union Co., IL in 1824 (NOTE: LENTZ HERITAGE does not cite the source showing them in IL in 1824. Perhaps it intended to say that the 1820 census showed them in Union Co., IL. in 1820.) The 1800 Rowan Co., NC census shows B9- Michael Lentz and wife both age 16-26, and no children. B9- Michael Lentz did not baptize any of his children at the Organ Church, but he did sponsor the following: (1) B2- Peter Lentz had son B25- Peter Lentz, Jr., b. 10 Mar 1800, sponsor Michael Lentz. (2) John Hollenberger (Hornberger?) and Anna Catherine Lentz (B6) had daughters Polly, b. 1 Jun 1803, spnsor (B9-) Michael Lentz. (3) Dan Hollenberger (Hornberger?) had daughter Polly, b. 15 Jan 1806, sponsor: Michael Lentz. (4) Henry Hollenberger (Hornberger?) daughter Catherine, b. 7 Apr. 1808, sponsor Michael Lentz. On 15 May 1802 (B-) Bastian Lentz, Sr., sold to his son (B9-) Michael Lentz, '100 acres by estimation,' for '5 shillings,' it being a part of a tract granted to B- Bastian as appears more fully on records (and the rest was incomplete). (Bk. 18, p. 319, Rowan) This was at the same time that Bastian Lentz, Sr. sold two other sons '100 acres by estimation' for '5 shillings' each. See B- Bastian Lentz, Sr., for further detail. Court minutes, Rowan, p. 247, Feb 1804, shows that administration of the estate of Valentine Hornberger was granted to (B- or B1-, unclear) Bastian Lentz and John Hornberger, bonded by Jno. Iosy(?) and B2- Peter Lentz. On p. 251 of these minutes, the court appointed men to 'lay off the widow Hornburger one year's provisions.' B6- Anna Catherine Lentz married John Hornburger, and everything indicates that John Hornburger was another brother of Catherine Hornberger's, (B9-) Michael Lentz's wife. Court Minutes, Rowan, p. 281, Feb 1804, shows that the Administration of the estate of Peter Hartline, dec'd, was granted to Henry Casper and John Miller, both brothers-in-law of Peter Hartline, having married his sisters. Court minutes, 7 Feb 1806 (or 1808) p. 370 shows Inventory of the estate of Peter Hartline to be 126 pounds, 3 shillings, 0 pence. Rowan Court Minutes, p. 384, Tues., 3 Feb 1807, shows that Henry Hartline, age 6, orphan of Peter Hartline, was bound to Michael Lentz till age 18 to learn the 'joiner' (carpenter or cabinet-maker) trade. His master, Michael Lentz, was to give him a suit of clothes and 10 pounds upon reaching age 18. Also, Sophia Hartline, age 3 years 3 months, orphan of Peter Hartline, was bound to Michael Lentz till age 18 years. The Will of Bastian Lentz, Sr., 16 Mar 1807, leaves the 'plantation' to son B9- Michael provided he fulfills the bond he gave his father to take care of his mother until her death or remarriage. (NOTE: In 'Rowan Co., NC Marriages, 1753-1868,' p. 155, there appears the following: 'Goodman, George & Katherine Hornbarger, 3 Oct 1850; John Earnheart, bondsman; J. S. Myers, wit.' Immediately above this shows that that this George Goodman may have had a previous marriage in 1812. Perhaps this was a second marriage for Katherine Hornbarger Lentz?) On 30 Jul 1808, Bk. 20, p. 93, (B2-) Peter Lentz and William Seford, Administrators of the estate of Bastian Lentz, Sr., sell to Michael Lentz two tracts of land containing 222 acres for $200, 'It being a tract originally granted Bastian Lentz, Sr., dec'd.' On 7 Mar 1809, Bk. 20, p. 198, Rowan, George Fisher sold to Michael Lentz for 440 pounds, land in Rowan on north side of Second Creek, containing 252 acres. No records were found showing how Michael Lentz disposed of this land. No records of another Michael Lentz, other than B715- Michael Lentz who was born in 1833, have been found in NC. On 25 Mar 1809, Bk. 20, p. 161, Rowan, Michael Lentz sells to John Duke, Jr., for 200 pound (about $400.00) two tracts of land containing 222 acres, 'It being a tract granted by NC to Bastian Lentz, dec'd.' The 1810 Rowan Co., NC, census shows Michael and wife 26-45, 1 male under 10, 1 female under 10, and two females over 45. The children in 1810 are believed to be the children of Peter Hartline assigned to him in 1807 (Henry Hartline, age 9 in 1810 and Sophia Hartline, age 6 in 1810). The two older women are believed to be his mother, widow Margaret Lentz and his mother-in-law, widow of Valentine Hornbarger. However, we have the problem of 'widow M. Lentz marrying Wm Smathers on 17 Mar 1809, so if she is the same, she may not have been at home with B9- in 1810. The other elderly woman may have been a relative of the Hornbargers, or of Michael. It may have been BO- Maria (Mary) Lentz, the younger sister of B9- Michael, BO- Maria (Mary) Lentz is shown as single on her father's Will in 1807, but we had not estimated her age to be over 45 in 1810. She may have been born earlier than we estimated. Lentz Heritage, Chap. IV, p. 30, and Rowan Marriages, 1753-1868,' p. 368, both refer to the following: 'Smather(s), William, and M. Lentz, widow, 17 Mar 1809; George Betz, bondsman; A. D. Osborne, wit.' Following Smathers's name, Lentz Heritage inserts 'Germ.), apparently meaning that Smathers was ethnic German. Lentz Heritage takes this M. Lentz, widow, to be the widow of Bastian Lentz, Sr., and mother of Michael Lentz, then continues: 'This was about 8 days before Michael Lentz sold the farm he had given bond on to support his mother. Her remarriage relieved him of this bond. The bond should have been on file in Rowan Co. It was not found.' Two pages later, Lentz Heritage continues on this subject, saying: 'Regarding the above, 'believed to be the marriage of Margaret Lentz, widow of Bastian, and William Smathers,' this is based on the time Michael Lentz, her son, sold his farm before leaving for IL, and also records that show two of her grandsons later owned the farm of William Smathers. However, the marriage record shows only M. Lentz (widow), and there are other records that may indicate that Wm. Smathers actually married Margaret Lents, widow of J- John Lentz, Sr. It is suggested that you study the record of the family of J- John Lentz, Sr, in LH, Chap VII, and his daughters JB- Elizabeth Lentz and her relations with the family of Wm. Smathers who became her guardian until she was age 21 before you decide to whom Wm. Smathers married. Her grandsons could have purchased the land after the death of the other widow Margaret Lentz, widow of J- John Lentz, Sr.' B9- Michael Lentz and Wife Catherine Hornberger in IL 1820 Rowan Co., NC, census--they do not show. They were in IL by 1820. The 1820 census of Union Co., IL, shows Michael Lentz, No. 200, without wife or children on the records that John Paul Lentz received in 'a round-about way' from unknown sources in IL. Sophia would reach age 18 in 1821. Her father, Peter Hartline, had a sister Magdalena Hartline who married B2- Peter Lentz, older brother of B9- Michael Lentz. Michael Lentz shows on the 1820 census of IL, and it is assumed that Sophia Hartline traveled with B9-'s family to IL where she married FIRST to B25- Peter Lentz, Jr. This husband died in 1824 in IL, and widow Sophia Lentz married SECOND to B42- Boston (Bastian) Lentz, in IL. Researchers in IL say that orphan Henry Hartline did not come to IL with Michael Lentz. His indenture ended at age 18 in 1819. It is believed he was released and remained with relatives or friends in Rowan Co., NC. On 23 May 1824, (B9-) Michael Lentz was paid $6.00 in IL paper money for making the coffin for B25- Peter Lentz, Jr. This is his last record found in Union Co., IL. He may have moved to KY. We have no proof or documentation after this date. Mrs. Judy Lents Sharp, PO Box 496, Pauls Valley, OK, 73075, says her ancestral line ties to Michael Lentz who came from NC, received a land grant in Marshall Co., KY, in 1832 and died 25 Apr 1849 at Benton, KY. His known wife was Mary Ann ____, married 10 Aug 1830; she died in 1846. Nothing has been found connecting B9- Michael Lentz with the Michael Lentz in KY. Williams (Erron R., Fam. Hist'n, 2108 Road 40, Pasco, WA) puts his ancestral line in Marshal Co., Ky, with J9- John Lentz, Jr., and wife Rachel Cline (See LH, Chap. VII, J- John Lentz, Sr. (B9-) Michael Lentz would have been age about 70 on the 1850 census, where we have not found him.. It is difficult to guess what became of him after 1824 in Union Co., IL. We have no further records. We have no records of Michael Lentz having any children. From LH, Chap IV, p. 45: Records in NC failed to show positively that this family had any children. Wright (Wright, John W. D., (Historian), 1019 Briarwood Dr., Carbondale, IL.--Bastian line) assures us that there are no records in Union Co., Il, showing any children for Michael Lentz. B9- Michael Lentx married in NC on 17 Jan 1800 and shows only man and wife on the 1800 census, and has a niece and nephew bound to him circa 1807, then shows on the 1810 census of Rowan with 1 female and 1 male under age 10, which fits the two children bound to him, along with 2 females over age 45; he had no children of his own by 1810. He was bonded to care for his mother in 1810 and his father-in-law had died before 1810- (this is known). The two elderly women on the census must be his mother and mother-in-law. This adds proof to the belief of some that Wm. Snmathers married the widow of J- John Lentz, Sr., widow Margaret Lentz, instead of the widow of B- Bastian Lents, St, widow Mareretha (Margaret) as also guessed by others. If he shows in IL without wife or child in 1820, he would have been age 40 by our date of birth for him. He could have married again in IL or in KY. He would have to have been born by 1782 or before. Any Michael Lentz younger than that would be someone else. Any children assigned to him would have to have been born after 1820. This may help the Lentz people of KY arrive at a solution to their ancestors through a Michael Lentz. * * * The following is from the Addendum in LH, Chap VII, p. 4: 'DAVIDSON LENTZ - If Davidson Lentz was born in NC, he would have to show with some of the Lentz families in Bedford Co., TN, on census records in 1820, 1830, and 1840, or perhaps on census records in KY. No records on these have been received. 'The 1850 census of KY shows a boy added to the bottom of the family as Henry Lentz, age 13, b. in 1837. If he is a son of Davidson, the Davidson married at age 25 or 26. Michael Lentz says that all the other children were born in KY. Michael also states that the early Michael in KY may have been a brother of Davidson. ' Judy Lentz Sharp, PO Box 496, Pauls Valley, OK, 73075, is a descendant of Michael LENTZ - the early one in KY. We are unable to make a positive assignment to a Lentz family line to either of these Lentz men -- Davidson or Michael. After all, we try to cover the NC recoreds only, but add what others send from other states. 'Judy Sharp also reported Michael Lents m. Marry Ann _____ and she gave him 9 children, all but the oldest born in KY. The oldest child was Davidson Lentz, b. 13 Aug 1831 in NC - others show this 1812. She says these 9 children are listed in his Will, but he actually had 11 children. She says that the court appointed an administrator for the estate after afrer Lucy Ann (?) Lentz relinquished her right and 'wished my friend and brother Davidson Lentz' to be administrator. Davidson Lentz was made guardian of the children of Michael Lents. No date was shown. 'Others show Michael Lentz, b.c. 1802 in NC, d. 25 Apr 1849 in Marshal Co., KY, wife Mary Annm m. 10 Aug 1830. 'NO RECORDS WERE FOUND IN NC FRO EITHER MICHAEL OR DAVIDSON LENTZ. None of this fitss the records of Michael Lentz, son of Bastian Lentz, Sr., as shown in NC or Union Co., IL. 'Today's Michael Lents, Postmaster, Murray, KY, 42071 says he is the son of Robert Elwood Lents, grandson of Benjamin Frank(lin) Lents and a great-grandson of Davidson Lents. He does not know the father of Davidson Lentz. He seems inclined to believe they were connected to J9- John Lentz, Jr. and wife Rachael Cline Lentz. Rowan marriage records show them married on 9 Jul 1808, while others shows 1805 and 1806. 'No other Lentz family line shows a John Lentz that could have mattied at this time. John and Rachel Lentz could have rented in Bedford and other counties in TN between census recores before moving to KY.3' He Person Source.2

M, b. 2 June 1755, d. 15 May 1847

MotherElizabeth Christina Holtzhauser1 b. c 1730, d. c 1770

Revolutionary War Veteran

Family History

The Lyerly family originally came from Lake Constance, Germany in1754 landing in Philadelphia. The Lierly name has been changed many times due to the whim of census takers. Lyerla, Lierly, Lierle and many other spellings are known. The spirit of those early family members has been passed from generation to generation. Today, the Lierly family members still have a spirit about them like that ole' Zach must of had when he first left North Carolina to venture and settle in the wilderness. Johann Christopher Lyerly settled eventually in Rowan County, N.C. He had a son Zachariah (Zacharias) who was born in Culpepper, VA. on June 2nd, 1756 or 1755. The Lyerly's lived in Virginia for ten years prior to moving to North Carolina.

Even when Zach was a young man he was adventurous and wild. His father, John Christoper Lierly, who came from Germany on the Richard and Mary had a hard time rearing that young man. In John will he spoke of leaving his son Zach just one shilling because he had spent his share gambling and drinking and also cursing and even laying hands upon his father. So when Zach left to go into the military he was a man ready to take on any wilderness that was around. Jacob, Peter and John Jr. Lierly, his brothers, spread throughout the regions themselves. John also settled in Illinois. Peter stayed in the Salsebury, N.C. area and creating a branch of the family there and then Jacob and his descendants went south into the Georgia area. Today there is a Lyerla, Georgia. Zach also had a sister named Barbara.

Zachariah fought in the Revolution from Rowan County, North Carolina. He began his service about 1777 serving for about 5 years. Serving 4 years 10 months for himself and 3 months as a substitute for Melcher Elder. His commanders were Gen. Rutherford, Col. Locke, Gen. Greene. He served with the North Carolina Line from Rowan County as a private under Capt Thomas Cook, George H. Barger and Richard Grimes companies. He fought in the battles of Reedy Fork and Guilford Court House.

He moved to Union County in Illinois with his sons, Henry and Jacob, about 1818 or 1819. He established his family in Union County which today is a well-known family with street names and such named Lyerla. He moved to Jackson County in 1823. In Jackson County he filed for a pension for his military service. It was approved by judge Thomas C. Brown in the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Illinois, October 9th, 1832. His pension Claim Number was S32389. Certificate number was 19685.

Zachariah moved to Adams County in 1842. He died in Adams County March 15, 1847. At the time of his death part of Adams County had become Highland County and was also known as Marquette County for a short time. These changes began in 1843. By 1848, with the new Illinois Constitution, Highland and Marquette Counties were defunct and the area became Adams County again.

Zachariah moved to Adams County following his son William who had moved to that county in 1827. Other pioneers moved too following German Baptist Minister George Wolfe in 1831. George Wolfe was totally against slavery hot issue in Southern Illinois at that time. Wolfe's ministry was located in Union County. So most likely during this period a large following of families moved from Union County. The Hunsaker, Vancil and Grub families moved to Adams County about the same time and also married into the Lyerla family.

Now to more info, which I have collected just recently and am still investigating at this time.

Ole' Zach is somewhat of a legend in my family. I am a descendant of his from the southern Illinois group of Lyerla families. In a book which was found at the Lutheran Church in Liberty (One Hundred Years of Union) and also a book written called (Soldiers of the American Revolution Buried in Illinois) which was written by the Illinois State Genealogical Society in 1976 which was a Bicentennial project of the American Revolution which was found at the Waterloo, Illinois Library. The book states that Zachariah was buried in Lierly Cemetery, Kellerville, Adams County, Illinois. He was one the early settlers in Adams County. He served eight years under George Washington. He died shortly after his arrival in this new land. He was given special burial as the only Revolutionary War Veteran in Adams County. With him was buried a Frenchman. In an early history this Frenchman is merely Tournear. This story has come to our attention concerning this Frenchman. When Napoleon was taken prisoner in 1815, he had two bodyguards. One man was killed, the second man escaped and disappeared. This Frenchman named Tournear, who was buried near Liberty in the late 1830's, is believe to be the long lost Napoleonic guard. These two illustrious men are buried a short distance from the village of Liberty on the Merle Koch farm. (Which is also known as five points.)

Now to the facts...a Lierly cemetery is located near Siloam Springs State Park. There is a gravestone there with various Lierly names, which I believe at this time to be relatives. At first I thought I had found Zach’s resting place there. But after a few days research I realized that the cemetery where Zach was buried was located on the Robert Hummel farm as it is known today. It is located east on 104 towards Liberty about 200 yards directly behind the open field on the north side in a cluster of trees. There is a small opening leading to both gravesites along with other family members of both men.

Here are few pictures of the cemetery as I saw it last weekend (August 2000). I found the cemetery to be poorly maintained. The gravestones are in good shape for as old as they are. Weeds and wild blackberries have grown over much of the area. A few tombstones are broken but the pieces are present. I would believe that they could be restored very easily. At this time, I would appreciate any help trying to get this cemetery cleaned up along with a memorial to Zachariah. I do understand this is on private land at this time and this may cause some concern. But it would be a shame for the site to be lost to time.

History only speaks of those men who commanded the troops, not of the many that actually placed their lives in the hands of god to fight for a cause which they did not understand at the time. Today, as we drive to work on the expressways or turn on the television, how many of us actually know that our ancestors made it possible. Many battles have been fought in so many wars since the Revolutionary war. Our independence was created by those men. They were outnumbered and overpowered but they had a will to win. Many young men died in that first war just as they have in today's time in Korea, Viet Nam and the Middle East, still fighting for the same causes. Each and every one of these soldiers should have a page in the history books.

Any information or anything that could help me give my ancestral grandfather a decent burial site would be appreciated. The idea of my grandchildren being able to proudly tell their children the story and then being able to visit his gravesite would be one of the best things I could leave to them. I am personally proud of Zach and what he was as a man. I believe that a man with such a colorful history, a man that helped form this country should not be forgotten.2 Zacharius Lyerly moved to Rowan Co., North Carolina from Virginia and served in the Revolutionary War. Between 1818 and 1819 he moved to Union County, Illinois and on to adjoining Jackson County where he applied for his Revolutionary War pension on October 9, 1832 aged 77 years. He gave his birthplace as Culpeper County, VA. He entered the service in 1777 under Captain George H. Barger and Colonel Rutherford.

Zachariah Lyrely was born June 2, 1755, in Culpepper county, Virginia. He enlisted in Rowan County, North Carolina, in 1777, for three months with Capt. George H. Berger; in 1778 for five months under Capt. Thomas Cook, and again for six months with Capt. Richard Grimes, and Col. Robert Rutherford. He came to Jackson count at an early day, settling at Dutch Ridge. He was in the battles of Reedy Fork and Guildford Court House.

As soon as he had an opportunity he sent for his family (he being sick with consumption), a wife and two sons. He wrote his wife to take all his private papers, waht money she wanted and his coat of arms. He owned a vast amount of property in Canterbury, and when his oldest son, John, (Stephen was the 2nd son) became of age, he took the papers and started to go and care for the property in Canterbury, and wherever their possessions were, but they never knew what became of him. Stephen Rolph was my grandfather, and my father's name was John Rolph born in Princeton, Mass. Dec. 29, 1752. My mother's maiden name was Mary Osborn born Oct. 14, 1753 in Litchfield, Conn. My grandfather, Stephen Rolph, saw the captain of the boat on which his brother John sailed, several years afterward, and asked him about him; he said he thought there was a man of that name on board, but he thought he died on the passage. If so, what became of the papers and property belong to the Rolphs? Stephen was the only heir left.' 'Thomas Rolph who came over from England (member of Parliament had the Coat-of-Arms.)

Brown to Mr. Fred Rolfe, Jr., March 4, 1984 'My great grandmother Mack when she was 89 years old called Lucy Brown into her room and asked her to write down some of the family history as she was afraid she might forget with advancing age. I was ten years old at the time. Twenty years later, shwoed the material to my sister, Ethlyn. That started our research to locate our roots. Great grandmother Mack was a school teacher. She learned to read and write German after she was sixty years old. Always wore black taffeta when going out. She was blind the last ten years; had an alert mind.' - Lucy Brown.1
