William Hannamon, BenjaminCox, and James McDade were the first known English settlers in Jackson County,moving into the Mill Creek area in May 1796. The first two built homes and tookup permanent residence in the county. McDade served as an Indian scout,traveling the banks of the Ohio River, with his only companion, a faithful dog,at his side. It was said that his sole ambition in life was to alert some poortraveler of the presence of Indians and preventing them from becoming a victimof what he viewed were murderous savages. (From "Early History of WV Counties")
In the month of May, 1796,William Hannamon, Benjamin Cox and James McDade reared their cabins within thepresent limits of Union District, and were thus the first to establishcivilized homes in what is now Jackson County. The first two became actual settlers and began to fell the forest andcultivate the soil. McDade, who was asoldier in the service of Virginia, selected a site for his future home, butcontinued to discharge the duties assigned him-that of Indian scout-and manydays and nights did he spend in the dreary wilderness between the mouths of theGreat and Little Kanawha Rivers,watching to catch a glimpse of the savage foe on the shore of the Old NorthwestTerritory beyond the Ohio. JacksonCounty was created in 1831, from parts of Mason, Kanawha and Wood, incompliance with an act of the General Assembly of Virginia, passed March 1st ofthat year, and named in honor of the hero of New Orleans, who was at that timePresident of the United States. Thepresent area of the county is 400 square miles.

Notes for JOHN GREATHOUSE:
Family Researcher names andaddresses and more data can be found on the Internet Site:
It is believed JohnGreathouse, Sr., a son of ?, was born about 3/1777 or 1778. It is said he was born in Harrison or MasonCo; ( Harrison County was created in 1784 from Monongalia County, (West)Virginia. At that time, Harrison County contained more than 1700 square milesand included all or parts of these counties: Barbour, Braxton, Doddridge,Gilmer, Lewis, Marion, Randolph, Ritchie, Taylor, and
Upshur. Records forresidents of all of these counties prior to their formation will be found inHarrison County and/or Monongalia County) and in 1804 - Mason county was formedfrom a northwestern section of Kanawha county. John died July 4, 1866. Hisdeath date is confirmed through records in National Archives from hisapplication for land grant for service in War of 1812. In addition, Ted McMullen has photos of histombstone in Roane Co, WV reflecting his date of death.
He married SarahMcDade. It is reported that a MarriageBond was filed in Mason County, September17, 1806. This handwritten bond spells Sarah's surname, McDade as Mickdade and Micdade. Sarah, a daughter of James and RachelMcDade,was born about 1776 and died June 30, 1869. Her father was one of the very early settlers of Mason County.
There is a record of oneJohn Greathouse in 1810 in Mason County (ages do not seem to match):
Census shows 1 male childunder age 10; 1 male between age 26 & 45; 1 female 10 & under and onefemale age 16 to 26.
A John Greathouse is showingon Mason County Personal Property Taxpayers 1809-10-11-12-13 & 14.
On June 19, 1812, the UnitedStates declared war on Great Britain. Action during the war was primarilynaval: on the high seas, on the Great Lakes, and on Lake Champlain. Landbattles were fought mostly in the region of Detroit, along the Niagara frontier,and in the south. The war was ended by the Treaty of Ghent signed December 24,1814. VA's militia regiments wereorganized by county. John entered fromMason Co, VA in 1814 and was discharged in Norfolk VA after about 3 monthsservice.
The handwritten copy ofdischarge (from National Archives) states:
John Greathouse havingperformed a three months Tour of duty in the service of this United States atNorfolk in compliance with General Orders of the United States Adjutant Generalof the Commonwealth of Virginia bearing date the 8th day of March 1814 ishereby honourably discharged August 29th 1814. Signed (appears to be George Hastings) Lt Col. Commdt. 4 R.bn.(?) Traveltime home was considered to be 30 days (600 miles) from Norfolk to Wood Co, WVin 1814.
From National Archives(photocopy of handwritten documents) John Greathouse's application for landgrant from service in War of 1812:
State of Virginia
County of Roane
On this 4th day of August ADone thousand eight hundred and fifty six personally appeared before me, John WCain, justice of the peace within and for the county and State aforesaid JohnGreathouse aged seventy-four years, a resident the Roane County in the state ofVirginia who being duly sworn according to law declares that he is theidentical John Greathouse named in the within and the accompanying discharge ofthe date of the 29th of August 1814 and hereto admits he was drafted soldieraccording to general orders in the company commanded by Mathew McKown of the4th regiment of the Virginia militia commanded by General Porter in the war of1812 that he was drafted in the county of Mason sometime in May in the year1814 for the term of three months and continued in actual service in said warfor the term of three months and was honorably discharged at Norfolk on the29th day of August AD 1814 as will appear by my discharge herewithannexed. He makes this declaration forthe purpose of obtaining the Bounty land to which he may be entitled under theact granting Bounty land to certain officers and Soldiers who have been engagedin the military service of the United States passed September 28th 1850 and theamendatory act thereunto belonging never having received or knowing that he isentitled under any former act of Congress.

July 5th 1856 Mr. Alfred Cain Reedy post Roane CountyVirginia
I request that you willprosecute my claim of Bounty Land under act of September 28th 1850 and theamendatory acts thereto belonging if I am entitled. You are authorized to review my land warrant. I was drafted soldier in the companycommanded by Captain Mathew McKown inthe war of 1812. I resided in the stateof Virginia County of Mason when I entered the service.
Very respectfullyyours, John X (his mark) Greathouse
Test: J.W. Cain
John settled on Spring Creekin what is now Roane Co WV sometime in the early 1800's probably about 1830. In Jackson County Personal Property Book for Jackson County 1831 is oneJohn Greathouse (3 horses, mares, colts, mules - Total Tax 18. Whilte Males 16 & up -- 2.
Jackson County was createdin 1831, from parts of Mason, Kanawha and Wood
In the archives notes shows:Dec 27/68 (1868) Letter to same (Alfred Cain, attorney for John Greathouse) toestablish death of soldier & date. (Apparently the land grant was notprocessed prior to his death since there was correspondence after his deathregarding the claim)
In archives records there isa statement signed by William Burditt (Burdett?) and Robert Burke that theyboth know that John Greathouse is dead, that they saw him buried and the saidRobert P. Burke made the coffin, and that John Greathouse died on the 4th dayof July A.D. 1866. The statement wassworn to on the 2nd day of March, A.D. 1869
The following information istaken from son Edward's obituary (1897):
John Greathouse, father of Edward, left Harrison county at thebeginning of the present century came to what is now Roane county, settling ashort distance below Spencer on Spring Creek near where John Walsh now lives.Here in this almost unbroken wilderness the boy Edward was born and grew tomanhood. His father's home was one of hospitality and good will. All travelersmight shelter under his roof and be fed from his table without thought of acharge. All denominations worshipped at their home, for churches there werenone, and the congregations were always pressed to remain for meals.
In the Roane Co FamilyHistory Book of 1989 Irvin Greathouse submitted the following information:
John Greathouse b abt 1778came from Harrison County and settled on Spring Creek just above the mouth ofNancy's Run abt 1815. He owned a largetract of land below Spencer. He was ofGerman descent. He was a cousin toSamuel Tanner, the early settler. Hewas in the War of 1812 John's wife was Sarah born abt 1782 and her maiden namecould be McDade. They had 6 known children: Jim, Sam, Edward (Neddy) b 1807 m Matilda Blosser; Sarah b 1828 m MathewMcMullen; William H b 1809 m Nancy Hicks and John Jr. b 1811 m Phebe Casto.These pioneer Greathouses are descendants of the Greathouses of Rev War fameand more directly of Capt Daniel Greathouse.
The 1860 Roane Co censusshows John Sr age 82 with Sarah age 78 and Malinda Connolly in HH.
There are some unansweredquestions about John:
Who was his father? His father must be a Greathouse born around1750, but to date, no parentage has been proven. A parental"relationship" to Daniel Greathouse has been suggested and denied bymany, so if Daniel was not his father, his father was probably in that familygroup, perhaps a brother of Daniel.
Another issue concerns thechildren attributed to John, and again, documentation is scarce. A questionablechild is Isaac, reported to have been born around 1803. Since there is no mention of Isaac nor hisdescendents as heirs in the estate settlement for John, I have omitted him asJohn's son. 2 other sons, Solomon andJames, predeceased their father, but their descendants are showing as heirs inthe estate settlement. (There is aconflicting report that Solomon deserted his family, assumed the name ofSolomon McDade & fought in the Civil War). Also, Isaac's birth date pre-dates John's marriage to Sarah, so thereshould have been a marriage prior to 1806. John was 28 in 1806, so it is possible. There is a record in Harrison Co of a John Greathouse marrying PhebyThompson in 1793, but in 1793 -- hewould have only been around age 16. There is also a child, Betsy Greathouseborn about 1805 who is reported to be John's daughter, but I have no furtherinformation for her. She may have diedas a child. Isaac and Betsy could have been children of a first marriageconsidering their dates of birth. Athird child attributed to John for whom I have no further information and is notnamed in the estate settlement is Wyllie B Greathouse. In addition, thedescendants of John G. Greathouse born in Harrison Co 10/6/1812 say he was theson of John & Sarah Greathouse; others claim him to be the son of Gabrieland Rachel Husted Greathouse.
Handwritten copy AppraismentBill of the Estate of John Greathouse was submitted to Roane County recordsOctober 9th, 1866 and was signed by A. G. Ingraham, Thomas Hardman and James CSpringston. Some of the following items are listed:
