William Givens born c1740 died Mecklenburg Co, NC after 26 March 1798 (will date).William Givens' Civil Service as Magistrate, Juror and Tax Assessor in William Haggins Dist qualifies for SAR and DAR membership.There is one old DAR approved app #651989 based on his service, but I don't know who the lady is.I'm in the process of submitting a Supplement app through William's dau Sarah md Robert Ramsey.
William Givens' will abstract "Mecklenburg County North Carolina Will Abstracts 1791-1868..." by Ferguson mentions wife Jannett (probably Jean McClure, d/o James McClure.James McClure's will recorded Augusta Co, VA where his son lived; written in SC, and is online in Chalkey's Chronicles, Vol III).
Children mentioned in William Givens' will: William Martha Elizabeth wife of Solomon Bracken, had son Eli Bracken mentioned in will. Samuel Sarah wife of Robert Ramsey.They died Henry Co, TN (my line). Agness wife of Hans McCain Hester (in will) (aka Esther in DAR app #651989) wife of John Coffey.
If Samuel Givens served from SC, he may be mentioned in South Carolina Accounts Audited.Believe these are online, SC Library of Archives & History (or Hist & Arch).
If Samuel Givens served from NC, he might possibly be found in the microfilm series "North Carolina Land Grants in Tennessee", but few of these mention Rev War service specifically.
