Private Samuel Denton

Aged: 77 years
( other sources has Samuel b: 1734 d: 1811 Pendleton District SC, and Margaret was said to have died in Granville Co, NC. Other source has Samuel with wife Margaret ?, and having child Phebe Denton ). Samuel was a Revolutionary War Soldier in the NC Continental Line and received bounty land in White all 20 co., TN. Until proper dates are learned, it is uncertain which children belong to which mother. He is in the DAR Partriot Index, Part 1, page 820. He was a private in the NC line. By 1769 both Abraham III and Samuel had joined a wagon train from the Shenandoah Valley to Lord Granville's land sale in NC. This wagon train was made up of the then current younger generation of the Plumleys, Weavers, Moores, Hoggs, Dentons, etc. This, the growing up children of the original imigrants to the VA frontier were marrying and developing families of their own and hungered for land of their own. They could not afford the local land and family holdings were not large enough to divide among all of the children. When Lord Granville began to advertise his land for sale, it was a new frontier to these young famlies. Tax lists and early censuses show that Samuel settled in what is now Granville Co. while Abraham III settled in Caswell Co. Each chose to settle near where their wives' relatives bought land - the Moores around Samuel and the Hoggs around Abraham III's family. He later moved to Warrick Co., IN and then back to Henderson Co., KY. He was paid one vouchers by Auditors for Washington Co. 7/17/1782 as a Revolutionary soldier. Also given a land grant in Henderson Co., KY in November 1813. He was a Revolutionary War verteran and performed Patriotic Service between 4/1775 and 12/1783 at NC
