I have Letitia Marney, child of Amos Marney, born in Sept. of 1760 in Frederick County, VA and died in Roane County, TN on 8/28/1839.
Amos Marney was married to Sarah Vance in Shenandoah County, VA on 4/26/1786.
The paper I have says Amos Marney assisted in the "American Independence during the War of the Revolution."He applied for Pension in Roane County, TN, 7/23/1833.It says he served two months under Capt. Denton's VA Company and marched to Staunton against the Indians.He enlisted again in April or May following and served three months; he has forgotten the name of his officers, and was stationed the greater part of the time at Albermarle Co., VA.He marched to Richmond and was one of a party of riflemen and had an engagement, place not given.He went to Yorktown and was in the siege of that place and was discharged three days before Cornwallis surrendered, having served his three months.In the winter following, he volunteered again in Capt. Benjamin Frey's Company and guarded prisoners at the barracks in Frederick County for one month.After the Revolution, he lived in Shenandoah Co., Rickbridge Co., for ten years, thence to Roane Co., TN.Among names he gives for reference -- Sawyer Hart.
All the above information was found on a document a cousin produced many years ago.I HAVE NOT VERIFIED ANY OF THIS INFORMATION. Karen
