Good Morning Glenda;
I looked in the NSDAR Patriot Index and localed 19 John Gardners. But none of them had service to NC. This does not mean he didnt fight, just means that no one joined the NSDAR under his lineage.

If I can be anymore assistance to you, please let me know. Our volunteers are eager to help provide look ups.

Warmly,
Sara Greer

Thanks Sara,
Now what do I do? I have found that he was refused a pension do to lack of evidence, Hezekiah Hargrave b. ca 1760 swore out an affidavit that was hand carried to the War Dept. by a Mr. Boon. This was in 1826, and it was lost, but Hezekiah d. 1827 so he couldn't redo it. Then John Gardner died c 1831 so it wasn't persued.
Just a bunch of info
Thanks
Glenda

You really have been working... No this isn't my John Gardner, mine didn't die until 1831 in Spencer Co., But this on was mentioned in his Rev War Application file. They throught he, my John, had already had a pension and was reported deceased..
Thanks anyway.

Hi,
I have 2 Edward Williams that were in the Rev. War from NC. And both were in Madison/Lincoln Co's KY at one time.
1. Edward Williams b. MD ca 1761 - to Rowan co., NC age of 5
Died Howard co., MO 1843, I know he md a Mary Freeman da of Samuel Freeman of Madison Co., KY per Samuels will. But I believe someone used Mary Barnes as his wife.. Could he have md twice?
2. Edward Williams from NC who md Elizabeth Hopper in Madison co., KY 1789 and died in 1791.?? not sure where but widow remarried a Mathias Lambert.
Have been trying to separate the records of these two as they were both in Madison co. KY about the same time
Hope it isn't too much to ask for both at the same time. Am related to #1 for sure amd possibly #2.
Thank you

I'm searching for info on Edward Williams, too. This Edward Williams was a drummer and was at Battle of Savannah under Gen Samuel Elbert and Gen. Robert Howe. He served with John Mason, because I have found where he served as a witness on his petition for pension. Edward Williams settled in Rabun Co., GA and is listed as a pensioner there. He lived in Pendleton, SC in 1790, but he was on 1830 and 1840 census in Rabun Co., GA. He was at the Battle of Brandywine and the Battle of Princeton and at Valley Forge. Family lore is that he was originally from England and possibly changed his name from James "Jimmy" Cox to Edward Williams to fight for the colonies. Please help. I would like to establish him as a patriot and apply to D.A.R. on his service. He may have been GA Militia.
