The Moreland Muster, Volume III, Issue 2, Spring 1990

Thanks to Eldon Edgin who sent 9 large IGI files, the first of which is printed in this issue.   He is also working with Melba Hutchison to enter Moreland census data into a D-Base program.  We still need volunteers to supply census information to Eldon Edgin, 14908 Wood­briar Dr., Dallas, TX 75248.  He will then supply the data to the newsletter.

     Janie Bryant visited the DAR library in Washington DC and copied the index of Volume 1 for the Johnson Co., Tennessee Court Minutes.  She says that the original book is in the County Clerk's office, but is in terrible condition; pages are missing and crumbling.  It would be helpful if someone could check to see if these records are avail­able on microfilm at a Family History Library.  Following are the Moreland names found in the index and the page number as­sociated with records in which their names appear.

     The following article was discovered and sent in by Joseph L. Brumit.  He found it in Vol. VII, No. 4, October 1960 of Ansearchin News which is published by the Tennessee Genealogical Society.  Seventy-two men are listed on the roster, but in the interest of saving space, I've only included the names of the men who are listed on the same page with William Moreland.

     Procured and prepared by President Wilena Roberts Bejach (Mrs. Lois Dillard) from the original Account Book at the North Caro­lina State Archives, Raleigh.

     In July 1776, Griffith Rutherford, Brig. Gen. of the Salisbury Dis­trict, N.C., was ordered to assemble three hundred men from the Surry County, N.C. Militia Regiment and to march to a rendez­vous with groups of Virginians and South Carolinians, where and when all would proceed to quell the Cherokees who were disgruntl­ed because of advan­ces by the white man on their lands, as well as having been incited to violence against the settlers by the English.  The meeting place with the Virginians under Col. William Christian was to be at Stalneckers on the Holston River.  Under Rutherford were Lt. Col. Joseph Williams and Major Joseph Winston.  The Regiment dispersed the Cherokees at the Middle Towns before Christian arrived, but he left a force of one hundred men under Captains William Moore and Joseph Hardin to harass the Indians.

     I believe that the William Moreland on this list was the ancestor of Marie Carlton Wilkerson who sent her pedigree chart to me.  She lists a William Moreland born before 1726 in Prince George Co., Virginia; md. a Nancy; d. June 1816 in Surry Co., NC.  His father was John Moreland b. ca. 1706, Virginia (from Prince George Co., VA 1749, 1754.  His will was dated 28 Oct. 1766 in Halifax Co., NC.  He married a Dorothy.  It seems highly likely that this is another branch of the York Co., Virginia Morelands.

"William Moreland appointed Constable for the upper district."

     Carter Co., Tennessee was formed from Washington District, NC in 1796.  The record above was discovered by C.E. Moreland who saw it in Vol. 19 of a publication of the Watauga Assn. of Genealogists.  This represents the earliest known date of William Moreland in this area.  He was also listed in Revolutionary Army Accounts for Washington and Sullivan Counties, NC in 1783.  (This record didn't prove service in the war, but was a record of reimburse­ments made to residents who contributed supplies to the troops).  This William Moreland was probably the one who served in the 9th Virginia Continental Line from Dec. 1776 to Jan. 1778).  This newly found record would tend to support my theory that William Moreland was born between 1750-60 and was either the first or the second son of Wright Moreland.

     Kudos to Charles Moreland for finding and sharing this with us!

State of Tennessee
County of Carter

     On this 17th day of September personally appeared in open court before the Circuit Court of Carter County here setting Charles More­land, a resident of Carter County, State of Tennessee, aged sixty eight years on this 8th day of this month past who being first duly sworn according to law doth on his oath, make the following declara­tion in order to obtain the benefit of the act of congress passed June 7th, 1832.

     That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officer, and served as herein stated.  That he volun­teered in the state of Virginia, County of Goochland (he being then a citizen of that county) in the month of March 1781 under Col. Nathan­iel Morris, his captain was David Mullins, his Lieutenant Col. was John Puarants.  This declarant states that after their organization, they marched to Richmond Virginia gathered their troops in the vicini­ty thereof for a period which he cannot recollect precisely.  From there on the return of Lord Cornwallis from the South        by General LayFayette through marched over Lousia on to       County about      miles from Elk Hills.  The British took Possession of the point    and     there until General LayFeytte marched down to attack, upon his approach, the British retreated to York having before hand destroyed the bridge across Big     Creek near Elk Hill to retard the movements of LayFayette.  A few days before he got to Elk Hill he was joined by the distinguished General Wayne.  Before this time a portion of the Virginia Militia was discharged an organization was     Col.    Pharson and my Captain Mullins, they attached to my company of Captain Mullins, they     attached to my company of Captain Thomas Harding or Hardner---from Elk Hills the army marched towards Wil­liamsburg.  Before we reached this point I was discharged in Goochla­nd County--got my written discharge that I    of    lost it.  I was in service three month--    I got home during harvest.  I     at home but as my short      until I  was drafted in Captain Frank Pledgers company---we joined the Main Army at Williamsburg and was attached to the Brigade of General     and the regiment of Col. Wm.    at     General Washington joined the army and from this place marched to York, which place the British had possession of they who had posses­sion of hill.  General LeyFayette heading the French troop marched up and attracted the British and compelled in the first to retreat but on being reinforced, he again attracted them and made them retreat.  On the evening or the following General Washington commenced building a fort on     Hill and built breast works,  Batteries continued the siege of York until Cornwallis surrendered, the loss of men on either side the declarant does not now recollect.  During the siege General LeyFayette attached a redoubt and was compelled to retreat.  The following night General Wayne attacked the same fort and took it with a loss of a few men.  The following night LayFeytte attacked another and took it with considerable loss to the Americans and much greater of the British.  After the surrender of Cornwallis, I was ordered to guard some mili­tary stores at a ship loading on the James River about six miles from York, call I thing I took the fluh       lay a con­siderable time.  After I got well, I was discharged verbally by the officer of the guard    an    officer whose name I think was Johnston or Strong having been in service about three and half months.  The time I reached home I can not state certainly but I think in Novem­ber.  The declarant served in all he thinks at least six and a half months and possibly longer, that there is no minister in his immediate vicinity.  That he has no documentary evidence and he knows of no person whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his service.

     He hereby relinquishes every claim to a pension or annuity except the present and  declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state to his knowledge.

Prior to 1682 to 1957, et seq.
by Edward H. Knight

     The Knight family forebears were all English and most settled in Gloucestershire, or near provinces.  The father of Giles Knight, appears to have been Sir John Knight, a mayor of Bristol.  Giles, who inherited that title, dropped it when he affiliated with the Society of Friends ("Quakers"), and he came to America in 1682, with his wife, eldest son, and other relations, with William Penn, on the "Welcome," and settled in what is now Bucks County.  He endured early hardships but acquired considerable means and prominence in that community.  The next four generations in my line were all born in Bucks County.  The Morland (later spelled Moland) branch also came from England and John Morland, the first immigrant, became a distinguished lawyer in Bucks County...   His granddaughter married Daniel Knight, the father of Dr. A.W. Knight, joining the two lines.

     Connection between Mo(r)land and Knight branches:

1.  John Morland of England born and died in England, graduated at Oxford University 11 October 1714.  Degree B.C.L.

2. John Mo(r)land, Jr. born in London 1700, came to America and was Crown Atty. of George 2nd for Penna. in 1759; d. 5 Jan. 1761.  Married in March 1738, Catherine Hutchinson, of New Castle, PA.  Died 14 Feb. 1780.

3.  William Moland (dropped "r" from name), b. 5 Nov. 1749 at Phila­delphia; d. either 1817 or 1826.  May have been a surgeon in Revolu­tionary Army (no record of it found).  Married 19 Oct. 1773, Hannah Noble, born 1 Sept. 1754 in Pa.; d. 1824 (whose grandfather lived in Bristol, Eng.) and grandmother (Wells) in Reading, Eng.

4.  Elizabeth Moland (eldest child) born Sept. 1, 1774, d. 17 June 1818, at or near Zanesville, Ohio.  Married Daniel Knight Dec. 1801.  (She was buried in Cem. at Zanesville, Ohio).

All of the above, except John Morland, Sr. settled in Bucks Co., PA.

My grandfather, Jonathan Carlton Moreland, applied for and received a "delayed" certificate of birth from Iowa in 1940.  Part of the in­structions state that the application must be prepared by someone other than the applicant, who was familiar with the events surrounding the birth.  This was done by Joseph M. Caldwell of 175 W. Longdon Ave., Arcadia, CA (age 70).

In the space for basis of knowledge he states, "My parents lived on a farm about ten miles away and visited very often, his grandfather (Jonathan's) and my father were cousins."

Jonathan's grandfathers were John Moreland (b. 6 Oct. 1817 poss. PA; d. 11 Dec. 1903 Tipton, IA; md. Catherine Kahl 9 Aug. 1837 Tipton, IA) and William Bagley (b. 9 Sep. 1820 Sharon, Winsor, VT; d. 30 Jun. 1909 Des Moines, IA; md. Nancy Jane Chambers 1 Jan. 1853).

The cousin connection would be through the siblings of these two men's parents.  I know little about the Moreland line except that John's father may have been yet another John of Green Twp., Franklin Co., PA in 1830.  I know of no siblings.

William's parents were Simeon Arvin Bagley and Almira Lathem, md. 1 Aug. 1819.  Simeon b. 26 Apr. 1798; d. 3 Dec. 1873 in Tipton, IA.  Almira b. 17 Mar. 1801 Sharon, VT; d. 9 Dec. 1874.

Does anyone know of a Caldwell - Moreland connection?  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to know the maiden name of Margaret ? who married Wright Moreland about 1820, probably in Carter County, Tennessee.  Note:  This is not the Polly Grindstaff who married the other Wright Moreland living in Carter Co.

Charles Moreland married Susanna Hancock 22 October 1790 in Goochland County, Virginia.  They moved to Carter County, Tennessee about 1795.  They definitely had one son, Wright, who is identified by the 1840 Census of Carter County (Charles, a Revolutionary War Pensioner, was living with Wright) and by Charles Moreland's will in Carter County dated 9 May 1846.  I would appreciate knowing the names of any other children of Charles and Susanna, the exact date of Charles' death and any other information about the family.

Elizabeth Moreland, the daughter of Wright and Margaret ? Moreland was born in Carter County, Tennessee 6 October 1832 and married Ruberry Dobbs 24 February 1854.  She died in Texas about 1883.  Where did Elizabeth and Ruberry marry?  Where did she die and where is she buried?
