(also on list Frederick Mour 2 1 4 and Jacob Mour 1 - -).
Rudy Mourer has 2 males over 16. Don't know who the other male is. He has 4 males under 16 (Peter 13, Jacob 9, Henry 7, John 6). That makes sense. He has two females This would be either wife and eldest daughter or perhaps wife and Fedney (although I think Fedney might be daughter of Rudy's brother).4 Peter Mowery witnessed the New Tag of Rudolph Mourer on 10 January 1810 at Crane Creek, Rowan County, North Carolina; On Jan 10, 1810 Rudolph gave to his son Henry 164 acres on the south fork of Crane Creek, and on the same day 120 acres to his son Peter, on the w side of Crane Creek.1 Peter Mowery married Elizabeth Kepley on 12 January 1811 at Rowan County, North Carolina.1 Peter Mowery lived; NC.1 He witnessed the New Tag of Rudolph Mourer on 26 December 1835 at Rowan County, North Carolina; The heirs of Rudolph Mourer sold on 26 Dec 1835, 50 acres of land on Panther Creek, formerl y owned by Rudolph, to Daniel Frick.
The heirs who signed or made their marks were:
Henry Mowery, Peter Mowery, Jacob Mowery, Barbary Mowery (widow of John), Barbary Lezer and P eter Cauble (husband of Fedney Mowery).5
Peter Mowery In Oct 1816 he sold to his brother Henry 120 acres and on Aug 13, 1839, sold 44 acres to Isaac Mowery -- Konrad Dillow, 'Notes on the Mowerys' (mimeographed; undated). named son of Rudolph in book 20, page 165, Jan. 10, 1810 (McCubbins Papers) -- Rudolph Mowre-no wife signs-- lets his son Peter Mowr (both of Rowan County, NC) have 120 acres on the westg side of the south fork of Crane Creek next Henry Mowre. . .& Frederic Mowre, for $60.1 He died in December 1842 at Rowan County, North Carolina.3

     Frederick Mowery was a witness Marshall Family on Ancestry.com has Jacob a brother of Rudolph and Frederick with unknown father and no other siblings listed. with Jacob Maurer and Rudolph Mourer.3 Frederick Mowery was born between 1735 and 1745 at Montgomery County, Pennsylvania; based on receiving first communion at age 12; Jeffrery Mowery has 1750.4 He received First Holy Communion between 1747 and 1758 at New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church, Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania; In Goshenhoppen Church Records there is a record of Rudolph and Frederick receiving their first communion. The listing is of children who were admitted for their first Holy Communion at the Old Gosenhoppen German Reformed Church in what is called today Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The list was compiled between 1747 and 1758.

SOUR @52050163@.5
He married Susanah ? at North Carolina circa 1770.6 Frederick Mowery is included in the biography of Rudolph Mourer; Rudolph is thought to have at least one brother, Frederick. Rudy, Fred, Valentine and Jacob were mentioned in Rowan records starting in 1768. Rudolph first appeared on a land survey grant in 1778 in North Carolina, though he may have been there sooner. The 1778 tax list in Rowan County in Capt. Berger's District included Reedi Maury, probably Rudy Mourer, who payed a poll tax, Frederick Maurer, who is thought to be the brother of Rudolph, owned property and paid more than the poll tax as he was taxed 124 pounds 13 shillings 0 pence, Valentine Mowrer, Jacob Mowrer, Jacob Fisher, Michael Holshouser, Andrew Holshouser, Michael Hartman Dillow, Michael Peeler, Philip Cruse, Peter Eddleman, Jacob Clugtts, Peter Barringer and many others. It is not known where Rudy lived before coming to Rowan County, North Carolina, but in 1779, a Rudy Mourer payed taxes in Springfield Township, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, along with Jacob Mourer.
In 1782-83, Rudy Mourer was taxed 20 pounds for his land. He also owned horses, mules, and cattle in Capt. Grimigar's district. Strangely, no other Mowery's appear on this tax list.
On November 4, 1784, the state of North Carolina granted Rudolph 250 acres on the waters of Hampton Creek adjoining Frederick Mourer.
The same neighbors as earlier lists appear on a 1784 tax list for Capt. Grimmenger's district, in southern Rowan County taken by George Henry Berger. Listed next to Andrew Holshouser is Rudolph Munro, one white poll and 250 acres. The 250 acres was probably the same 250 acres granted Rudolph by the state of North Carolina. Also listed in 1784 is Jacob Monro, one white poll and 550 acres. Another alphabetized list shows 550 acres taxed to Fridrick Monro.
This original tax list is lost and when they were published in 1995, the compiler wrote, "It is great pity that we lack access to the original list so that the German names could be translated or presented in the German scripts". There men whose names were copied by WPA workers as Monro and Munro were probably Mowery's who lived in the district.
In 1788 the tax list for Capt. Robert Linn's district in southern Rowan County contains the names of Rudey Mouer, one white poll and 290 acres because Rudolph must have purchased another 40 acres between 1784 and 1788 and Frederick Moure, one white poll and 536 acres.
Rudolph, along with a Jacob Mourer, appears on the 1790 census in Rowan County, North Carolina living in Salisbury District.
In 1796, in Capt. John Rendleman's district, Rudolph Mourer is taxed, having two white polls and 290 acres, Frederick Mourer is taxed and Peter Mourer, thought to be Rudolph's nephew, is taxed.
In the same district in southern Rowan County in 1798 was Rudolph Mourer 290 acres and one white poll and Peter, with 536 acres and two white polls.
Rudolph is also on the 1799 census of Rowan County North Carolina.
According to the 1790 and 1800 censuses of Salisbury district, Rowan County, Rudy had 2 other sons not listed below (In 1800, one son was aged 16-26 and the other son was aged 10-16).
On January 10, 1810, Rudolph gave to his son, Henry, 164 acres on both sides of the south fork of Crane Creek next to Peter and Frederick Mowrie. That same day he gave to his son, Peter, 120 acres on the west side of the south fork of Crane Creek.
The heirs of Rudolph Mourer sold on 26 Dec 1835, 50 acres of land on Panther Creek, formerly owned by Rudolph, to Daniel Frick.
The heirs who signed or made their marks were:
Henry Mowery, Peter Mowery, Jacob Mowery, Barbary Mowery (widow of John), Barbary Lezer and Peter Cauble (husband of Fedney Mowery).

Frederick Mowery was a witness What links Fedney as daughter of Rudolph? Rudolph has only 2 females in the 1790 census, whereas Frederick has 4. I wonder if Fedney has been placed with the wrong parents. with Fedney Mowery in 1779.4 Frederick Mour was census 1790 in 1790 at Rowan County, North Carolina; 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, 4 females. Perhaps Frederick, his son Peter over 16; John under 16; wife Susannah, Phebe, Anna Marie, and perhaps Fedney (who is listed as daughter of Rudolph). This would still leave one daughter born after 1790 (because he names 4 daughters in his will in 1808).7 As of 1790, Frederick Mowery was also known as Frederick Mour.7 Frederick Mowery was also known as Frederick Mourer. He lived; N.C.2 He left a will between 1808 and 1818 at Rowan County, North Carolina; The will of Frederick Mowre (book G, p. 334), made Feb ---, 1808, while in good health & probated in Nov 1814. Wife Susanna (the home and mprovement next Rudolph Mowre & the land of my son John proviiding she dosn't marry again, but should she re-marry, the land is to be sold & proceeds divided among my four daughters (names not given). Sons Peter (his part of the estate) & John (200 acres next my son Peter's part). Executors wife and trusty friends Robert Morgan and William Hampton Jr. Witnesses Margaret Todd & Rebecca Morgan. Nov. 14, 1814. The wl of Frederick Mowerie is proved by Rebecca Morgan, Robert Morgan qualified as executor of said will. Book 25, p. 158, Sept. 18, 1818, Susanna (the widow of Frederick Mowra Sr. who willed her the plantatoin during widowhood) now relingquishes it, witnessed by Nathaniel Johnston & Michael Brown and proved by the latter in Feb. 1819. He died in 1814 at Rowan County, North Carolina; will probated.2,5 Frederick had at least one brother, Rudolph. Fred, Rudy, Valentine and Jacob were mentioned in Rowan records starting in 1768. The 1778 tax list in Rowan County in Capt. Berger's District included Reedi Maury, probably Rudy Mourer, who payed a poll tax, Frederick Maurer, who is thought to be the brother of Rudolph, owned property and paid more than the poll tax as he was taxed 124 pounds 13 shillings 0 pence, Valentine Mowrer, Jacob Mowrer, Jacob Fisher, Michael Holshouser, Andrew Holshouser, Michael Hartman Dillow, Michael Peeler, Philip Cruse, Peter Eddleman, Jacob Clugtts, Peter Barringer and many others.

He A brother of Rudolf rather than a son? Not in Rudolph's will. What source shows William as a son of Rudolf? I am now assuming William to be a brother of Rudolph, based on this comment from Konrad Dillow 'In 1782, Jacob Fisher gave to Lowerstone Church a black ledger for record purposes. The first entry in this ledger was for Anna Maria Maurer, cousin of Henry Mowery, who was the ancestor of so many Illinois Mowerys.' [Konrad Dillow], Descendants of Michael Hartman Dillow A History of the North Carolina Dillow Line [n.p; n.d.]., p. 11 This information came from Dr. Hammer's 'Rhinelanders on the Yadkin,' acc to a letter Mrs. Evelyn Hayden sent to Rowan Public Library (2 Aug, 1975 - I have a photocopy sent by her). In her letter, she quotes Hammer, p. 65 and 66; 'In 1782 Jacob Fisher gave the congregation a large blank ledger for records. This church-book is excellently preserved and a large part of it contains beautiful German handwriting. The first name recorded therein is Anna Maria Maurer (Mowery), daughter of Frederick Maurer. She was born May 7, 1782 and was baptized by the Rev Samuel Suther on October 20th of that year. For the same day is listed also the baptism of David Kluttz' twin daughter, etc.' McCubbins file 'Frederick Mowrer' - book 10, p. 543, Oct 10, 1783. The State grants (#389 at 50 shillings the 100 acres) to Frederick Mowrer 235 acres on the south fork of Crane Creek next Valentine Hornbarier. William Temple Coles, crossing said fork next Rudolph Mourie & crossing said fork again. Sold 1818 to Frederick Holshouser by executor of deceased Frederick Mowrie.2

The father and one son moved to Grafton, but another son, Benjamin, lived all his married life in Upton. Benjamin's s n, Lemuel, born in 1735, was a tavern keeper in West Upton for many years. His tavern was probably what came to later to be known as the Warren Tavern. These early settlers were nomadic people who restlessly settled all New England. Many came and went, always seeking greener pastures. Those who were satisfied with what they found stayed, or there would have been no permanent settlements. The Hazeltines first settled in Wenham, then married into Rowley families and moved there. The Batchelors were from Wenham; the Perhams, from Chelmsford. These were all latecomers and for that reason were a long way from center house lots in Sutton (p. 10). . .The Sutton town meeting for 1731/ 32 considered the petition 'of oure Esterly in habitants requesting they may be set of in order to joyne with mendon, uxbridge, and hopkinton in order to make a new township. . .Voted that if ye towns afore s'd shall se met to dismis their Inhabitants in order their to and ye eneral court shall incorporate them into a town then these our inhabitanta are Dismissed in order there to - ye line to run upon ye westerly side of John Hazeltins land to run north to Hasnemisco Line and south to uxbridge line. . .

Elias Myers1

M, b. 17 March 1762, d. 1847
     Elias Myers was born on 17 March 1762 at Mecklenburg County, North Carolina; "The Genealogy of the Cruse Family 1722-1993 states that Magdalena Cruse was born 2 Jul 1760 in Montgomery County PA and confirmed in Rowan County NC in Organ Lutheran Church on 12 Nov 1775. It is stated in the book that she married Elias Myers of Lincoln County NC and moved to and died in Daviess County, IN.
The following sources work together to show evidence that Magdalena married a different Elias Myers, one who lived in Mecklenburg, Cabarras, Rowan, and Burke Cos NC and Warren and Carroll Cos TN
1) Revolutionary War Pension declaration of Elias Moyers (R7478)
2) Revolutionary War Pension declaration of Elias "Mairs" or "Moirs" (S2719)
3) 1790 census of Mecklenburg Co NC
4) 1790 census of Lincoln Co NC
5) th 1805 record of a Cruse land sale, and
6) the records of the Elias Myers family of Daviess Co IN.
In the pages of the Cruse book that have been sent to me the authors offer no documentation to support their statements that Magdalena married in Lincoln Co NC, that she moved to and died in Daviess Co IN, and that she was the mother of the children they list as hers. Without some kind of proof, these statements are only opinions. It would appear that the writers assumed that the Elias Myers of the 1790 Lincoln Co census - and later of
Indiana - was the same Elias Myers whom Magdalena married. However, descendants of this Elias claim his wife was Dolly Fulbright. See http://david.my-ged.com/db/page/killion/6175 .
The two pension applications mentioned above were filed by the same man - same age, same military unit. Both files mention the confusion about the
spelling of his last name. The first was filed in Union Co IL in 1828 under the Pension Act of 1818 and was rejected for lack of supporting evidence.
Magdalena Cruse Myers had two brothers and apparently other relatives living in Union Co IL. The second application was filed in Warren Co TN under the
Act of 1832 and was accepted.

The 1832 declaration indicates that Elias' father's name was Adam, that Elias was born in Mecklenburg Co NC and that he married a woman named Cruse.
He mentions that during the Revolutionary War he served as a substitute for George Brown and for William Lippert. One George Brown of Union Co IL
received a pension based on service rendered in Rowan Co NC. The surname Lippert became Lippard, and in North Carolina Elizabeth Lippard married Henry Cruse. This Henry was the son of Peter Cruse and died in Union Co IL.
Peter was the name of one of Magdalena's brothers. The supporting affidavit of Peter Meisenheimer of Union Co states he knew Elias during the war.

The names of Magdalena's brothers and brothers-in-law appear on page 161 of
the 1790 census of Mecklenburg Co NC: Adam Cruse, Andrew Cruse, John Berger, George Goodman and Jacob Lingle. The names Peter Misenheimer and
William Lippard also appear in the 1790 Mecklenburg. So do the names Adam and Elias "Moyer", on page 161. I believe this Elias was Magdalena's
husband.

In 1790, when Elias "Moyer" is in Mecklenburg among Magdalena's brothers and
brothers-in-law, Elias Myers and Elias Myers Jr. are listed in Lincoln Co NC. No documentation that I have seen indicates a connection between
Magdalena Cruse and these Lincoln County people.

According to the Cruse book, Magdalena was the daughter of Johann Philip Cruse of Rowan Co NC. The book states Philip was in the 1790 census of
Mecklenburg Co NC. A search failed to turn up his name there, but Phillip Cruse is listed in Rowan County that year. The book states that, at the
time of the 1805 sale of Philip's land "on the Rowan-Cabarrus County line", his heirs Elias and Magdalena Cruse were living in "Berk" Co NC. Since there is no "Berk" Co NC, evidently "Burke" County was meant. Elias
declared in 1832 that after the war he had lived in the North Carolina counties of Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Rowan and Burke, and that he lived in
Burke County for 14 years before moving to Tennessee.

According to a transcript of his will, which can be seen at
http://www.rootsweb.com/~tncarrol/Wills/myerse147.htm ,
Elias died around 1847 in Carroll Co TN, leaving instructions that he should buried "long side of my dear wife in said county". A list of his children, posted elsewhere, shows a son Philip, possibly named in honor of Magdalena's father.

An entry in the LDS International Genealogical Index (IGI) gives Rowan Co NC as the place and 12 Nov 1775 as the date of Magdalena's marriage to Elias "Miars".
That is the date shown in the Cruse book of her confirmation in Rowan Co NC, not the date of her marriage. A search of three different books of Rowan County marriages did not yield this marriage.
I know of no evidence having been offered that it took place in Lincoln County.

The 1840 census of pensioners gives Elias's age as 83. If this age is correct, he would have been born in 1756 or 1757, about five years earlier
than stated in the pension declarations. This would also mean that, even if he had married as early as 1775, which the questionable IGI entry suggests, he would have been around 19 then, and around 20 when he first enlisted in
the army.

The idea that Magdalena did not marry the Lincoln County Elias is not a new one. Other researchers have already posted messages at various web sites
showing her married to Elias Myers of Warren Co TN. This evidence supports their conclusion.

Revolutionary War Pension Application: "He says he was born inthe year of 1762 in Mecklenburg County NC. . .he was born the 17th of March 1762. This record is a Bible and was given to him by his father Adam Mairs." page 6.2,3 He married Magdalena Cruse at Rowan County, North Carolina, circa 1785.4 Elias Myers was an heir in the probate of Johann Phillip Grüss and Anna Catherina Grüss on 5 September 1805 at Rowan County, North Carolina; On 5 September 1805 Henry Cruse, Peter Eddleman (Elizabeth Cruse's husband),
John Berger (Margaretha Cruse's husband), of Rowan County, North Carolina, Adam Cruse, Andrew Cruse, George
Goodman (Susannah Cruse's husband), and Jacob Lingle (Anna Maria Cruse's husband) of Cabarrus County, North Carolina, and Elias Meyers ( Magdalena Cruse's husband) of
Berk County, North
Carolina, the heirs of Philip Cruse, conveyed his land lying on the Rowan-Cabarrus
County line.5 Elias Myers and Magdalena Cruse "After their marriage, Magdalena and her husband, Elias Meyers, moved to Daviess Co IN inthe early 1800's and lived out their lives there. On 12 May 1824 Elias signed a petition asking that a preacher be sent to Slinkard's Mill in Daviess Co. They are buried in Daviess Co."

That he, the said ELIAS MOYERS, enlisted for the term of ten months on the --- day of April in the year 1781 in the State of South Carolina in the company commanded by Captain William Hutcheson in the regiment commanded by Colonel William Polk in the line of the State of South Carolina on the Continental establishment, that he continued to serve in the said corps until the expiration of the said term of ten months, when he was discharged from the service on the high hills of the Santee in the State of South Carolina; that he hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension except the present; that his name is not on the roll of any state whatever as a pensioner under any of the acts of Congress, and that the following are the reasons for not making earlier application for a pension, viz.: that the circumstances of the said applicant until recently, although not affluent, were easy, but that, by misfortune and inability to labour from advanced age, he has been reduced to the necessity of asking a support from his country. And in pursuance of the Act of the first of May 1820 I do solemnly swear that I was a resident citizen of the United States on the 18th day of March 1818 and that I have not since that time by gift, sale or in any manner disposed of my property or any part thereof with intent thereby so to diminish it as to bring myself within the provisions of an act of Congress entitled "An Act to Provide for Certain Persons Engaged in the Land and Naval Service of the United States in the Revolutionary War, Passed on the 18th Day or March 1818" and that I have not, nor has any person in trust for me, my property or securities, contracts or debts due me, nor have I any income other than what is contained in the schedule hereto annexed, and by me subscribed, my necessary bedding and wearing apparel excepted. My occupation is that of a farmer, but from old age and infirmities I have become unable to pursue it any longer to advantage, and my circumstances are so reduced as to render it difficult for me to support myself without some assistance from my country.
