What I find interesting is that Henry Randolph filed a claim in 1786, andChristopher Moyers,b.01 Jan 1740 filed a claim in 1788.They are recognized as the first settlers in what is now White Pine, TN.
One of the problems I have is the birth date of 04 Jul 1778 for Henry Randolph that on 19 Jan 1797 married Susannah Moyers b. 24 Feb 1784.Susannah would have been 13, and if this is the same Henry Randolph that filed the claim he would have been only eight years old when the land claim was filed.
I also believe that I have a double direct connection to Christopher Moyers,b.03 Feb 1708.I believe that his daughter Susannah Moyers, b. 22 Mar 1766 married Aug. 1784 Nathaniel Smith,b. 05 May 1762.Nathaniel & Susannah had a daughter Charlotte, b.11 Feb 1790 in Madison Co., VA.Charlotte Married in Greene Co., TN 22 Aug 1805 William B Moyers, b. 1785.Charlotte & William B Moyers had at least two sons.Jeremiah Myers, b.1809 Greene Co., TN& William Myers,b.14 Dec 1813(note the spelling changes)
William B Moyers, b. 1785 along with Riley & Steven Pankey was killed 27 Mar 1814 at the Battle of Battle of Horseshoe Bend - Coosa Co., AL
Location of the Cemetery: The Cemetery is near the town of Sylacuaga, Ala., about 13.2 miles off of U.S. Highway 280, approximately 57 North of Horseshoe Bend Military Park. The Site is marked on Alabama Maps as "Indian War of 1812 Cemetery". grave #1.Panky, Riley Pvt grave #34. Pankey, Stephen Pvt grave #74.Moiers, Williams Pvt
Then 29 Aug 1816 Charlotte remarried my William Presley Holder in Gerrene Co., TN.The only other records I can find on them is the Oct 1830 census in Jefferson Co., TN living among the Moyers, Randolphs, and Pankeys.The last record I have of William Presley holder was his sale after death in Jan 1831.In 1842 Charlotte, and almost all her children, and their spouses moved to Ray Co., MO
It took me a while to figure out why they moved there, but after looking at records I see they settled next to her sons, Jeremiah & William Myers.
Finding the actual location they lived is very interesting.It is on what is now called the Dixie Highway.It was the trail to the Cumberland Gap.I know from DNA testing that my holder line is related to Col. John Holder, who was on the first party with Daniel Boone to establish Ft Boonesboro, KYI could go on, but this might turn into a novel if I make it longer.
