I am researching Job BACORN (b abt 1740 [NJ?], d 1803 in Fayette Co PA). He married Rhoda WHEELER, of Whippany, Hanover Twp, Morris Co NJ in 1760 at the First Presb Ch in Morristown, Morris Co. In 1776 they were still in Morris Co NJ (Poll List).
Migrated to Hampshire Co VA (now WV), where he received a land grant on Cabbin Creek, which he sold in 1779 to Moses TICHENOR (also from Morris Co NJ).
Job and John (a brother?) BACORN received another grant in Hampshire or Hardy Co VA in 1789. In 1787 a Jobe BAKEHORN is listed in Hampshire Co Personal Prop Tax Lists.The same year he bought land in Monongalia Co VA (also now WV).
By abt 1798 Job relocated to Georges Tp, Fayette Co PA, where he died in 1803. Job and Rhoda had one known child, Mary BACORN.
A story says Job was captured by Indians ca 1757.
It is possible the NJ and NY branches of this surname are descended fromt the same immigrant(s).Would like to hear from anyone researching these lines.
