John Haselwood (b. 1733, d. August 06, 1810)John Haselwood (son of John Hazelwood and Susannah Haselwood)76, 76 was born 1733 in VA, USA76, 76, and died August 06, 1810 in Luhenburg, Charlotte, VA, USA76, 76.
Notes for John Haselwood:
John Hazlewood was born in 1730, in New Camp, Virginia. He died in Charlotte County, Virginia, in 1810. He married in Henrico County, Virginia in 1755. His wife's first name was Elizabeth, but her last name is unknown. This information was taken from his son's Revolutionary War Record which I have a copy of. I discovered it at the Denver Federal Center's Archives Section. His son's name was Luke.
1777: American forces under General Benedict Arnold storming Bemis Heights during the Battle of Saratoga John Hazlewood had another son who fought in the Revolution, and I have a copy of his War Record also. I copied it from the same microfilm that held his brother Luke's War Record.
John Hazlewood's children from his first marriage are:
Benjamin H. Hazlewood
Luke Hazlewood Sr.
Secondly, John Hazlewood married Nancy Cole on September 13, 1803 at Lunenburg County Virginia. The source for this is in the marriage records for Lunenburg County Virginia. I have a copy of this record. John and Nancy had the following children:
James Cole Hazlewood
William Temple Hazlewood
Mariah Marie Meade Hazlewood
The names of these children are supported by a descendant story held in the Helm Library of Stratford, Kentucky which is situated in Lincoln County. I have a copy of this.
French and Indian War, 1754-1763 John Hazlewood purchased 280 acres in Lunenburg County, Virginia from Lydale Bacon for 40pounds. This land was on the head branches of Reedy Creek. This purchase was recorded on June 9, 1763, and is recorded in the Lunenburg County Deed Book 9. I also have a copy of this. The year of John Hazlewood's land purchase in Lunenburg County corresponds to the year the French and Indian War began. This gives historical perspective to the purchase and may give the reader ideas about the political climate in the colonies at that time.
John Hazlewood sold his 280 acres on October 13, 1803, to John Tisdale for 220 pounds. The land is recorded as being on the South Branch of Reedy Creek. Both John and his wife, Nancy, made an X on the deed of sale. It was recorded December 8, 1803, in the Lunenburg County Deed Book 19. I have a copy of this.
John Hazlewood held his land in Lunenburg County for 40 years, and his home was in Cumberland Parish, where he was active in his church. In 1766, John reaffirmed the boundaries for all land between Cot. House Road, Towland Wards, Rowling Road and Reedy Creek Old Road. This comes from Cumberland Parish Vestry Book, 1746-181 6, by Landon Bell, printed by William Bird Press. Entries for John Hazlewood are recorded in this Vestry Book from 1766 through 1784.
Boston Tea Party, 1774 John Hazlewood also witnessed land transactions recorded in Lunenburg County Deed Books 9, 16, 16, and 18. I have copies of these. John Hazlewood was a Tither, one who collects tithes, in his parish from 1764 through 1783 as recorded in Sunlight on the South Side, Lists of Tithes, Lunenburg County, Virginia, 1748-1783.
When John Hazlewood died in 1810, his estate was tied up in a legal battle from September, 1810 until June 6, 1821. His estate had been inventoried January 7, 1811 in Charlotte County, Virginia, and the legal battle between his first and second wives' children took place in Charlotte County. This information came from the Helm Library Descendancy Document I have in my possession.
Children of John Haselwood are:
- +Luke Hazelwood, b. 1759, Lunenburg, Charlotte, VA, USA76, d. July 16, 1834, Lincoln, KY, USA76.
