Re: John Newland Rev. Patriot info b 1743
I can’t provide a conclusive connection of John Newland 1743 to John “The Immigrate, but there are several items that seem to strongly indicate John this connection.I would doubt there would be another German Line in America named Newland, at least in the 1700s.I also note Mary Newland Linder; Isaac; and Abraham have all located in southwestern VA in the 1770s or before; that was probably Fincastle County at that time.
Various sources have provided information concerning the six offspring of John Newland, the Immigrant and his spouse Elizabeth Linder as follows: Mary, b. c. 1741, d. c.1810; m. Anthony Grog Linder c. 1758 Wash Co VA. John (II) b. 1743, d, Apr 16, 1833 Wythe Co VA; m. Mary Margaretc. 1768 in Winchester ?, VA + 2 additional wives: Savina Waggoner , and Elizabeth Gannaway.Jacob, b. c. 1749 d, c.1809, Shelby Co KY; m. Lucy Lemmon of Frederick Co.Isaac, b. Oct 15, 1752 , d. Sep 22, 1808, Madison Co KY. m. Martha Freeman(?) who was abducted and killed by marauding Indians in Washington Co VA 1788; later m. Martha Hawkins Mar 16, 1793 in Washington Co VA.Abraham, b. Oct 5, 1754, d. Oct 5, 1827, Madison Co KY, m. Mary (Molly) Crews Oct 27 1782. (b. Dec 25, 1761, d. Nov 14, 1838. ) Abraham apparently moved family to Madison Co in 1787.Sarah, b. c. 1759, m. Conrad Byers. Reportedly, VA archives indicate John, Jacob, Isaac and Abraham all served in the Revolution and also served prior in Lord Dunmore’s War, seeing action at the Battle of Point Pleasant. . A book, "The Story of St Peters Church, Shepherdstown, 1765-1965", p. 265 mentions Elizabeth as the wife of John Ulandt. The entry concerned the christening of Johannes, son of Conrad Byers and his wife, Sarah. The sponsors were Johannes Uland and his wife Elizabeth.There apparently were other Newland families, perhaps Quakers, living in the general area of Shepherdstown during the same period.
To add to the list of Newland leather workers, Jacob Newland, 1828 – 1901, grandson of Abraham (my great grandfather) operated a tan yard in Garrard County, KY from 1860s until his death.
