JACOB BROYLES (197) [son of Lewis Broyles (42)] (b. Dec 13, 1793 Greene Co., TN;d. Feb 29, 1877 Greene Co., TN;bur. Jacob Broyles Family Cemetery*,Horse Creek Valley, Greene Co., TN next to his wife) Called "Black Jacob", he married Sara Jones (b. May 11, 1794;d. Dec 1, 1868) in Greene Co., TN Nov 8, 1814 (license) with John Kindell signing as surety. Jacob Broyles made will Feb 7, 1872, probated in Greene Co., TN, Mar 1872, witnessed by Charles E.
Earnest and David B. Harrison. To daughter Susan, he gives a calf which he had intended for her deceased daughter Ann; he mentions sons A.F. Broyles, John S. (should be "F") Broyles, G.J. Broyles, O.H. Broyles, Lewis H. Broyles, son George K. Broyles's sons Samuel, Edmun, William, and Charles Broyles. Sons O.M. Broyles and Lewis H. Broyles are named as executors. It is curious that in the detailed account of Jacob Broyles's children furnished by some descendants, no mention is made of the daughter Susan mentioned in the will. Jacob Broyles was a veteran of the War of 1812 having served in Frances Register's and George McPherson's companies of the Tennessee militia and under the command of Andrew Jackson in the Battle of Horsehoe Bend.

197. iv. Jacob Broyles

JACOB BROYLES (8) [son of Jacob Broyles (2)] He was born 1738 in Orange Co., VA and married about 1762 to Elizabeth Yowell, daughter of Christopher Yowell, of Culpeper Co., Va. So far as is known, he was the only one of his father's nine sons who married a woman of English name and descent. Jacob Broil, described as of Culpeper Co., Va., was paid 9 schillings in September, 1758, for services in the French and Indian War.

In Culpeper Co., VA November 19, 1770, James Barbour, Jr. and wife Frances, Jacob Broyle, and Martin Rouse and wife Frances sold to John Wilson land on both sides of White Oak Run - the association of Jacob Broyles with these individuals is unclear. In 1768, Jacob Broil was sponsor at the baptism of Zacharias, son of Peter Broil, again in 1776 for Matheus, son of Matheus, and again in 1776 with wife Elizabeth for Rosina, daughter of Conrad and Elizabeth
Wilheit. Hezekiel (Ezekiel), son of Jacob Breil and wife Elizabeth, was christened November 17, 1776, with Moses breil, Heinerich Wayland, and Dorothea
Breilin as sponsors. The baptism of no other child of Jacob and Elizabeth appears in the Hebron records. Jacob Breil and wife Elizabeth appear, in several communion rolls from 1775 to 1777. In 1780, Jacob Broyles entered 400 acres on Licking Creek in Kentucky but nothing further is heard of this entry and he probably did not follow it up. He moved to East Tenn. about 1780-89 with his brothers and settled on Horse Creek in Greene Co. about five miles from the Broyles settlements on Little Limestone in Washington Co.. The tax lists of Greene Co. show that he possessed 506 acres in 1787-88, 316 acres and two slaves in 1798 (with one poll recorded), and 316 acres in 1798 (two polls). On July 12, 1794, Jacob Broyles entered 200 acres in Greene Co. on the west side of Horse Creek. His will was made December 10, 1798 and probated in Greene Co. in April of 1799. Either this date is inaccurate or else the date of his death, given as June 7, 1799, is in error. It is certain that he died about this time - 1799. His will was witnessed by John Bird, Ephraim Broyles, and Matthias
Broyles with Thomas Prater and James Broyles named as executors. In his will, he mentions wife Elizabeth, son Ezekiel Broyles (who is to receive the plantation on which the testator is then living), and children Lewis, James, Jeremiah, John, Delilah Prather, and Keziah Williamson.
