JOHN McCALPIN FAMILY OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND KENTUCKY 469
JOHN McCALPIN FAMILY
John McCalpin and his wife Elizabeth Watson, who were living in Augusta Co., Virginia in the late 1740's, are almost certainly the same John and Elizabeth McCalpin found in the North Carolina and South Carolina records by the 1750's. The names of other families from Augusta Co., Virginia, are found along with John's in the Carolina records, lending support to the theory that they all came by way of Virginia. There is a 1747 court record in Augusta Co. naming Elizabeth Watson as the wife of John McCapen. The baptismal records of Tinkling Spring Presbyterian Church of Augusta Co. show that Margaret McCapin, daughter of John McCapin, was baptized 13 March 1749. Margaret was probably born in late 1748 or early 1749 and baptized as a young infant. The settlers who attended Tinkling Spring Church were mostly pioneers from Pennsylvania moving up the Valley of Virginia and on into the Carolinas and Georgia. The Scotch-Irish were the dominant group.
In 1754 Robert McPherson sold 360 acres of land on the Broad River on Bush Creek to John McCapin, both of Rowan Co., N. C. This land is in the present- day South Carolina counties of Laurens and Newberry. William Alexander sold land on Catawba, South side of Twelve Mile Creek, to John Patterson in 1754 with John McCalpin and Henry Hendry serving as witnesses. William Alexander, John Patterson and John McCapin were found together in the Tinkling Spring Church records of Augusta Co., Va., in the 1740's.
In 1755 John Hitchcock of Anson Co., N. C., sold to John McCopen, also of Anson Co., 200 acres on the North side of Broad River, North fork of Sandy River. Although this is given as being in Anson Co., the description probably places it in what is today Chester Co., S. C. This entire area was called "Carolina" in 1755 with no fixed boundary until 1772. Records of Royal Grants and Plat Books in the S. C. State Archives show John McCalpin receiving land in Craven and Granville Counties, S. C., in 1758 and 1759. Alexander McAlpin, main subject of this book, and a Robert McAlpin were living in this general area during the same time period and are believed to be related. These were the earliest McAlpins found in the records whose descendants can be traced.
Mr. H. Leonard Porter Ill's book, Destiny of the Scotch Irish. An Account of a Presbterian Migration 1720-1853, gives some interesting insight into where these first settlers of the Carolinas came from. The earliest settlers of Long Cane Creek came primarily from Virginia to the area that was first called Granville County, then the Ninety-Six District, and he lists among them John McAlpin. His map of the migration of the Associate Reformed Presbyterians showed them coming from Scotland to Ballybay, Ireland, to Albany, New York, through Pennsylvania to Augusta Co., Virginia, and then to the Carolinas. Rockbridge Co., VA, was created in 1778 from Augusta and Botetourt Counties.
The old S. C. counties of Craven and Granville have long been discontinued. Granville Co. was along the east bank of the Savannah River from Beaufort on the Atlantic Ocean to Pendleton, NC. Craven County was North of the Santee River and followed the N. C. for nearly 200 miles. Chester Co., S. C., where John's family was found in the records for many years, was created in 1785 from what had been Craven County.
John McCalpin purchased 100 acres of land on Long Cane Creek from James and Sarah Barr in 1765. This land joined one side of John's Royal Grant from the King. John is listed on the 1768 Quit Rent Rolls as owning two 250 acre tracts in Granville county. Elizabeth McCalpine is also listed with 200 acres in Craven Co., S. C. The Quit Rent was the annual assessment due the King from each person who obtained land by the actual grant or by purchase or inheritance from one who had received the grant. The question arises as to why Elizabeth was a land owner. Is she a widow? Is the John McCalpin now found in the records her husband or her son?
470 JOHN McCALPIN FAMILY OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND KENTUCKY
John McCalpon received 200 acres in Wilkes Co., GA, in 1778, but is this John, Sr. or John, Jr.? Alexander McAlpin received 100 acres in Wilkes Co. a few days later. There is no record that John McCalpin ever actually lived on this land, but John and Alexander were in the same location at the same time.
John McAlpin made inventory for the estate of John Montgomery in 1777 in Ninety-Six District, S. C. John McColpin was on the 1778-1779 Jury List of S. C., in Camden, between the Broad and Catawba River at the same time Alexander McAlpin was on the jury list from Long Cane. John McAlphin was a member of the Upper Ninety Six Regiment, South Carolina Militia, and fought in the 1779 Battle of Kettle Creek during the Revolutionary War. The generations are now blurred. Since there was a John McCalpin, Senior and Junior-father and son-it may be the son who is shown in some of these later records rather than the father. John, Jr. was born before 1755, possibly by 1750 or earlier, so he was of legal age by or before 1770 to 1775. It may be John, Jr. who served in the Revolutionary War or it could have been both father and son.
In 1790 Elizabeth McCalpin deeded a Brown Bay Mare as a gift to her grand- daughter Mary Watson in Chester Co., S. C. The deed was witnessed by Joshua Gore and Joseph Watson, who are thought to be sons-in-law of Elizabeth. John McAlpin, Jr. and wife Nancy sold 80 acres in Craven Co. to Allen DeGraffenried in 1798. John states that he inherited this 80 acres from his father. It was part of a 200 acre tract granted to John McCo1pin, Sr. in 1759.
When Daniel McCalpin died intestate in Chester Co. in 1803, John and Betsey McCalpin were appointed administrators of his estate and ordered to make a division of the property within a year. Daniel was probably the brother of John, Jr., and Betsey may have been Daniel's wife, but no proof has been found.
John McColpen, Jr. was the only McColpen to appear as head of household in the 1790 census of Chester Co., SC. He had five males and three females in his household. He was still in Chester Co. in 1800, but soon afterwards migrated to Christian Co., Kentucky. John, along with two of his married sons, Joseph and John, were living almost next door to each other in Christian Co., Ky. in 1810. By 1820 Todd county had been created from Christian county, so although they had not moved, the McCo1pins now lived in Todd county. These families and their descendants were found in the census records of Todd county from 1820 through 1910.
John McCopin/McCo1pin bought land in Christian Co., Kentucky from John Waldrop in 1807. The name was spelled both McCopin and McColpin on the same land record. Joseph McCo1pin and his wife Nancy eventually became owners of this property. They willed it to two of their sons, Charner H. and Joseph, Jr. in 1855. John, Joseph and Hudson McCorpen/McCorbin/McCo1pin appeared in the early tax records of Christian Co. It was after the family arrived in Kentucky that the name was found spelled McCorpen.
The following are some records found that have been found for John McAlpin:

This has been a very difficult family to research because of the lack of genealogical type records, so be aware that many of the following families are not complete and the reconstruction probably contains serious errors. Correct spelling of names has been difficult to determine, so may not be accurate. The families have been reconstructed to the best of our ability using available records in the hope that it will prove helpful to others.
I.JOHN McCALPIN, Sr. probably born by the 1720's, possibly in Scotland, and died before 1790, possibly by the late 1760's or 1770's, in Chester Co., S. C. John was married ca 1748, probably in Augusta Co., VA, to Elizabeth Watson. His marriage to Elizabeth mayor may not have been his first. Without a will, estate, bible or family record, it is impossible to know the names of all the children of John McCalpin, but John, Jr. and Margaret are definitely children. The Gore family records show that Jane was also a daughter. There is circumstantial evidence to indicate the others listed here were children, and there was without doubt additional ones for whom no name are known.
Issue:(7 children listed here but names of all children are not known)
1.Margaret McAlpin,d/o John. Sr.,b. ca 1749, prob. Augusta Co., VA; She was baptized on 13 Mar 1749 at Tinkling Spring Meeting House in Augusta Co., VA and was probably a young infant at this date. She mayor may not have been the oldest child of John. There is no more information about her. It is possible that her name was Margaret Jane and she was the daughter who married Joshua Gore, but it is also possible that Margaret and Jane were two separate daughters, so they must be listed separately.

(Gore information also from Will of Joshua Gore as listed on p. 386 of A History of Johnson Co. Illinois by Mrs. P. T. Champman. The McCalpin and Gore families lived in the Sandy River area of Chester Co., S. C. Joshua Gore married Jane McCalpin and John Ashford Gore married Mary McCalpin. Was Mary McCalpin another daughter of John and Elizabeth Watson McAlpin?)
3.Daniel McAlpin, prob.s/o John and Elizabeth; served in Revolutionary War. Hed. 1803 Chester Co., SC. Application for administration of his property was made in Chester Co., and in Nov 1803, John McColpin, probably the brother of Daniel, and Elizabeth "Betsey" McCo1pin, possibly the wife of Daniel, were approved to administer provided they made an inventory for auction within one year. Davis and Michael Gore were either co- administrators of bondsmen. Record of sale and distribution has not been found. There may have been children as some unidentified McCalpins are later found in Todd Co., KY, including Samuel McCalpin. (See end of chapter)
4.Drurv McCalpin. prob.s/o John & Elizabeth,b. ca 1750s. He served in the South Carolina Militia during the Revolutionary War. His audited account for militia duty is in SC archives, #AA 4957-B, 7 Dec 1778 - 8 Nov 1780. It is not known if he married and had children. His dates of birth and death are not known. This is the only record found of him, but it establishes him as an adult by 1778, making the 1750's as a likely date for his birth.
5.Mrs. Joseph Watson. prob.d/o John and Elizabeth. Elizabeth McCalpin, for Ilove and affection, deeded a brown bay mare to her granddaughter Mary Watson on 17 Aug 1790. Joseph Watson and Joshua Gore were witnesses. It is said both men were sons-in-law. There is no other information about the Watsons.
6.John H. McCalpin. Jr.,s/o John & Elizabeth,b. before 1755;m. Nancy ___. They were found in the 1790 and 1800 census of Chester Co., SC, and in the 1810 census of Christian Co., KY. John H. was over 45 years of age in the 1800 census, making him born before 1755, either in VA or the Carolinas. John H.'s middle name has been given by descendants as Hudson or Hutson. It is interesting to note that a John Hamilton McAlpin was a Loyalist in N. C. during the Revolutionary War (l), but it is believed the above John H. served
(1)Demond, Loyalist in N. C Durin. Rev War

for the colonies. Also a Lieut. McAlpine and Col. Hamilton, Loyalists under the command of Gen. Cornwallis, were listed as killed in a battle near Camden, SC, in Aug 1780 2. It is difficult to distinguish John, Jr. from his father, John, Sr. in the early South Carolina records. John, Jr. must have been of legal age by the early 1770's, so any record found after that date may be either father or son.

John's sons, Daniel and John, were found in records of Maury Co. in the 1830's, but it has not been determined if Francis was a son, a brother or unrelated.
