BUNCOMBE COUNTY, NC - MILITARY - George Poplin, Revolutionary War Pension Application REVOLUTIONARY WAR PENSION APPLICATION - GEORGE POPLIN Pension Records, Revolutionary War soldiers (Film 0971952) George Poplin S 7328 North Carolina George Poplin of Burke co NC was a private in the company commanded by Capt Ducks (?) and the regiment commanded by Col Littenell for 14 months. He was placed on the pension roll in North Carolina 11 Oct 1833. 22 Oct 1832 in Burke co NC appeared George Poplin. According to what his parents told him he was born 15 Dec 1752 and he believes that he was 79 years old last Dec. He volunteered for 9 months in the month of Sept, does not remember the year, under Col John Littenell and Capt Jacob Ducks and was stationed in the Hickory Mountains Barracks in Chatham co NC. They were frequently sent on short expeditions against the Tories. He was on this duty for 7 months then marched up the Yadkin River and then had a small engagement with some of Cornwallis' troops. Col Littenell was defeated at this place and was separated from his troops who retreated under Capt Ducks back to Chatham where they were discharged. He received a written discharge from Capt Ducks. Poplin next volunteered under Major John Knalls whose brother Nicholas was Captain. This was a little before Hillsborough was taken by Col Fanning and McVeal's Scotch Levies. The Americans marched from Chatham to Cane Creek at Linley's mill where they met Fanning and McVeal who were returning from Hillsborough and a severe engagment ensued. The battle last about 3 hours at the US troops tried to retake Governor Burke and other prisoners where were at Hillsborough, but they were unsuccessful. Col Littenell and Major Knalls were both killed in the battle. Poplin remained in service under Capt Nichol Knalls abouth 3 months. On account of the Levies they had to leave the county and under Major Rossen and Col Golson they went down to South Carolina and remained there until they heard that Cornwallis had been taken. While in South Carolina he was in 2 skirmishes, one on Drowning Creek and one on Shoe heel Swamp. Both of those were against the Scotch Levies. Poplin was discharged by Major Rossen soon after Cornwallis' capture. His discharge papers are all lost at this time. Issac Stewart testified that he first knew George Popl Anson co and had heard it said that he had been a soldier in the Revolution. The following research was contrubuted and gathered by W.A. Poplin GEORGE POPLIN, JR. George Poplin, Jr., the second younger brother of William Poplin was also an American Revolutionary War Soldier. He is listed in several documents along with William including George Poplin Senior's will, in which he was left his father's land in Chatham County along with two cows and calfs, one feather bed and his father's rifle gun. A records search by the National Archives reveals that the other three brothers, John, Richard and Henry were not Revolutionary War soldiers. George apparently remained in Chatham County for many years after his father's death and after the Revolutionary War. He appears on the 1790 Census for that county. He had also cashed an old pay voucher from the war on October I, 1783 in that area. George Poplin, his wife "Patty" and mother "Averilah" are also listed on a document in the Chatham County Deed Book showing sale of 75 acres of the Poplin land on the South side of Bear Creek to a Mr. Thomas Beal on 1 Jan. 1784. George later moved to Burke County, North Carolina. On October II, 1833 he applied for and received his soldier's pension of 46 dollars and 66 cents per annum. His pension began on March 4, 1834 and he received an initial payment, including arrears money back to September 1833 of $140.00. The following is a statement given by George Poplin on October 22, 1832 in the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions for Burke County, North Carolina when applying for his pension. It describes his service during the Revolutionary War. This is a true interpretation of a copy of the original document (in the National Archives in Washington, D. C.) by William A. and Betty B. Poplin.

    The Following research was contributed and gathered by W.A. Poplin:

    GEORGE POPLIN 1720/26/30 - 1775 George Poplin was a very prosperous planter who lived in Chatham County, North Carolina. It has been established that he was born between 1720 and 1726. His wife's name was Averleigh (sometimes spelled Avrilla or Avery). He was the father of nine children whose names were William (my Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather), John, Jane, Nancy (spelled Nansy), George (spelled Gorg), Richard, Averly (called Avie or Ave, and probably named after her mother), Mimy and Henry. George was apparently a prominent land owner and is listed in several documents regarding his land including 550 acres granted by a Deed from Lord Granville Agent Relation or Agents. The Lord Granville land was a large tract extending across much of North Carolina. George's land is described as being "along Bear Creek". At least two of George's sons, William and George, were American Revolutionary War Soldiers. Copies of Pay Vouchers for their services as Revolutionary War Soldiers are on file at the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh. His son William and wife Averleigh, (called Averey) were also executors of his estate. George was also a man of conviction. He left two of his daughters "one shilling sterling apiece for they're misbehaving women." An inventory of George's possessions at the settlement of his estate reveals that he was a man of sizable wealth. He owned two slaves along with horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, and geese. He also owned many tools of great value (tools of that time were handmade by blacksmiths and other craftsman). There were also numerous other farm materials and valuable household goods. George, or someone in his household, was probably literate. Included in his possessions were three old Bibles and one Testament, three Psalters and three spelling books. Settlement of George's Estate occurred in 1777. It is signed by Averleigh Poplin (here spelled Avirilla).

    It is believed that George Poplin moved to North Carolina from Virginia between 1747 and 1761. In the North Carolina State Library, Raleigh, North Carolina is found a Tithe List (or Tax List) from Goochland County, Virginia and described as follows: 1746 Totals: Southern Parish 1256, Northern Parish 1186, King William Parish 208, 2650 tithes. The tithe list was made in June and included all male persons of sixteen years and upward, also all negro, mulatto and Indian including women sixteen years and above. "Names of servants are not included in this transcription but is available in most cases on the original. A. TITHE LIST by Alexander Trent, 1746. (2) Mary Bell: George Poplin B. TITHE LIST SOUTHERN PARISH by Archibald Cary 10 June 1747. (2) George Poplin NOTE: The number (2) shown on the Tithe list is apparently the number of persons in the household on the day the census was taken. NOTE: George purchased his land in Orange County, North Carolina

    NOTE: GEORGE POPLIN'S LAND George Poplin purchased his property from the Lord Granville Land on October 2, 1761. It is described as 550 acres in Orange County on both sides of Bear Creek which is the waters of Rocky River. That part of Orange County later became part of what is now Chatham County. The land surveyed by George Williams, John Miles and W. Churton. Witnesses were Jason Watson and Robert Rainey. He paid ten shillings at the time of purchase and twenty-two shillings per year tax. This tax was very high and was a point of major concern to the planters who bought Granville Land in that area. A Plat of the land which was marked in the survey only by certain trees reveals a rectangular area crossed diagonally by Bear Creek. On August 12, 1766, George sold 137 acres of this land to a Mr. Charles Smith. Recorded in the Chatham County Deed Book, Page 445 is the sale of a portion of George Poplin's land by his son, George. 1 Jan. 1784 - George Poplin and Pattey his wife and Averilah Poplin widow of George Poplin Decd. to Thomas Beal - 50 pds. - 75 a. on the South side of Bear Creek - joins Thomas Beals own line - granted to George Poplin Decd. from Earl Granville and given by the last Will and Testament of the Deceased to said George Poplin.

Every "Mimy" Poplin1

Parents

Biography

  • Birth: Every "Mimy" Poplin was born before 1760 In his will George states he has 9 children but there are 10 names referenced in the will. I am going to assume that Mimy was a nickname for Every since his wife's name was Averilla.
  • Reference Number: Every "Mimy" Poplin had reference number 7.
  • Note: There is a possiblility the following person could be George's daughter Mimy: From: Virginia H Regan [mailto:ginhart@cableone.net] Charles G Regan b c 1759 Bute/Granville Co NC D 21 Jan 1840 Lincoln Co, NC M 22 Feb 1788 Lincoln Co NC Milly Poplin B c 1771 NC D aft 1858 Rowan Co, NC age 87 Most of this information comes from the Rev War Pension papers for Charles G Regan and for Milly - have a copy of the marriage bond/contract. We think Milly was a 2nd marriage for Charles G Regan I and have at least 2 children who were born before the marriage date for Milly and Charles. Charles Regan went into the Rev from Bute/Granville Co. We do not know why Milly Poplin Regan was living in Rowan Co in her last years. Her children remained in Lincoln Co except for Charles G II who was in DeKalb Co, AL, James who was in Hambersham Co, GA . Jesse who was in Spartanburg Co SC (all of this from the estate papers) the other children remained in the general area of Lincoln Co.

  • Note: Historical records regarding General Lincoln, at Savannah, Georgia tie with William Poplin's account and indicate that he was probably in the Revolutionary War during the period from 1778 to 1779. His wife and three children remained in Chatham County until his return and for one year thereafter.

    Included on the 1840 Census for Montgomery County, North Carolina is the name Richard Poplin, Sr. It indicates that he was 70 to 80 years old. Included in his family at that time were his wife, also 70 to 80 years old; a female 30 to 40 years old, probably a daughter; and a child 5 to 10 years old, probably a grandchild. His son, John Poplin and family are also in the 1840 Census for Montgomery County. His mother, Lucy Poplin is listed with a note that she was age 89. Also, she was listed in the 1850 Census in Stanly County as being 98 years old.

    The pension records mention 3 children. William married in 1769 with Lucy 16 yrs old and William 20. Richard was born before father's entrance into Revolutionary War. 1840 Census record - Richard Sr. is 70 - 80. His mother Lucy is listed at 98 yrs old in this census.

    1768 - Montgomery Cty - Revolutionary War - ~19 yrs old
    ~1769- Not with Lucy due to War
    ~1770 -Montgomery Cty or Chatham?
    ~1780 - 1784 Moore County
    1784 - 1786 Georgia
    ~1787 Back in Montgomery County

    In about 1780 Richard moved with William and Lucy to Moore County, North Carolina. This statement is reinforced by the fact that his father William, cashed Revolutionary War Pay Vouchers in Moore County in 1782 and 1783. In about 1784 to 1786 they lived in Georgia. They returned to North Carolina and lived in Montgomery County beginning about 1786 or 1787.

    William Poplin #W10231North Carolina
    Wife's name was Lucy. 16.180 William Poplin of Montgomery co NC was a private in the company commanded by Col Alston in North Carolina for 9 months. He was placed on the roll 12 July 1833. State of North Carolina, Montgomery co, 10 Oct 1832 appeared in court William Poplin, resident of said county and state, 83 y/o. He was born Feb 1749 and when he entered service, he lived in Chatham co. Col Philip Alston raised a troop of horsemen in Chatham co who were engaged to serve 3 months and they marched into South Carolina to join General Asher'ss army who was then in South Carolina not far from Charleston. They joined said army near the Santin River and Poplin was placed under the command of Col Alston and Capt Walsh (who came from Taylorsville NC). From this place, Ashe's army crossed the Santin River at Nihon's Ferry leaving Charleston about 9 miles to the left and thence up the Savannah River to the town of Savannah Georgia where part of the British army was stationed. Ashe's army moved to Augusta and hence to Brier Creek in pursuit of the British who tore up the bridge at Brier Creek. Ashe's army halted here for about a week and was attacked by the British who had re-crossed the river. The Americans were defeated and 130 American prisoners were taken including Poplin. The prisoners were taken about 15 miles down the river to Savannah where for a week to 10 days they were confined in a large house built for a church. From here they were carried down to the mouth of the Savannah River and put on board a prison ship that was lying there. Poplin was confined here with other prisoners for about 6 months when he was induced from fear of starving to death to enlist in the British service. During his imprisonment he was given a pint of rice a day and 3/4 pounds of fresh beef a week. He left Col Alston on the same prison ship. After enlisting in British service he was carried up the to Savannah and made to work on the fortifications there for 4 to 5 weeks. At the time, Savannah was surrounded by the American Army under General Lincoln on one side and the French on the other. Poplin escaped and went to General Lincoln who allowed him to go home to Chatham. A guard accompanied Poplin and others that were in a similarsituationn to the Cumber River. Poplin stayed in Chatham about 12 months and moved to Moore County where he lived 3-4 years and then moved to Montgomery County where he has lived ever since. He had a certified affidavit from Hudson Taylor who lived in Chatham co when Poplin returned from service.

    The following research was contributed and gathered by W.A. Poplin

    His name appears on the Pension List of American Revolutionary War Veterans. His name also appears on a list of men on the Muster Role of Captain Joab Brooks' Company. Also, on this same list is William Poe who is believed to be the Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather of Betty Brown Poplin, wife of W. A. Poplin, III.

    Also, with his 'pay voucher documents are a document showing Chatham Regimental Return made 23 September 1772. This is the front page of a book or log.

    Enlisted in Chatham County, North Carolina. Prisoner of War on a prison ship in or near South Carolina. Escaped and returned to Chatham County, North Carolina. Spent three to four years in Moore County, North Carolina. Lived in Georgia for two years, 1800 to 1802. Was in Montgomery County for over thirty years until his death in 1835.

    Lucy listed their marriage 1767/68. She was 16 and William 20. This would yield a birth date of 1747/48. The birth date of William per Lucy's recollection is not exact. However, in a later court document, William stated his birth date as February 1749.

    Lucy lived to be at least 98 years old. In the 1850 Census, fifteen years after her husband's death, she is shown as living with the family of Frederick and Nancy Hinton on their farm in Stanly County. It specifically states her age as 98 years.

    In 1841 the part of Montgomery County in which they lived became part of Stanly County.

Biography

  • Birth: Richard Henry Poplin, Sr.*, was born in 1766 in North Carolina, USAG, The DAR recognizes Nancy as the daughter of William + Lucy.

  • Note: The following items Document Richard Henry (Dick) (Harry) Poplin as the son of William Poplin Revolutionary Patriot (Formal approval of this documentation as authentic has not been obtained)(

    Research by Kathy Heinz)

    1. 1790 Census Richard Poplin for Montgomery Co. - Richard listed as head of house with one male under 16 and one female over 16. In 1790 he would have to be born 1774 or before. His grandfather George (b. aft 1730) is listed in Chat ham County. His father William was not found in the 1790 census.

    2. 1830 Census Richard Poplin West Side Pee Dee River, Montgomery Co. Richard is on the same page, just one line above Will. Will ( Richard's father) is listed as 70-80 (We know he is 80 from his pension). Richard would have to be at least 16 years younger than William. Since "Richd" is listed as 60-70 that calculates to a birth date between 1765-1770. Richd has a female his age and one other female age 20-30. 1866 Census has "Harry" as born abt. 1766 William has a female his age, William also has a male 15-20, 20-30 and a female 15-30.

    3. 1840 Census "Richd" Poplin West Pee Dee River, Montgomery Co. He is listed with a female his age, a male age 5-10 and a female age 30-40. This is Richard Henry (Dick) Poplin, Sr. (His father died in 1835) However in the same Census, his mother Lucy is listed at age 89 in West Pee Dee River, Montgomery Co. and appears to be living by herself.

    4. 1840 Census Lucy Poplin West Pee Dee River, Montgomery Co - Lucy Poplin is 89 with no other household members listed. She is living in the Township West Pee Dee River which according the census records is where Richard was in 1840 and William and Richard in 1830.

    5. 1850 Census Richard Poplin age 84 Stanly Co. Family no. 765. Anne Poplin age 52, Enoch M. Poplin 16. Richard's wife has died by 1850. The others ages match indicating this was a daughter or daughter-in-law (not sure which as Enoch is a Poplin) and grandson.

    7. 1860 Census Harry (Richard Henry age 94 b. abt 1766) Stanly, NC County, Post Office Albemarle. He is living with Richd Poplin age 52 and his wife Bicky.

    The following research was contributed and gathered by W. A. Poplin - With this Census data there is further validation of William as Richard's Father.

    Little is known about Richard Henry poplin. However, he probably was born in Chatham County near what is now Pittsboro, North Carolina. We estimate that he was born around 1766 based on the 1860 census report. His parents were married around 1766-1767 (pension record) and Court records show that they were in Chatham County at least through December 1777. Historical records regarding General Lincoln, at Savannah, Georgia tie with William Poplin's account and indicate that he was probably in the Revolutionary War during the period from 1778 to 1779. His wife and three children remained in Chatham County until his return and for one year thereafter. In about 1780 Richard moved with his mother and father to Moore County, North Carolina. This statement is reinforced by the fact that his father William, cashed Revolutionary War Pay Vouchers in Moore County in 1782 and 1783. In about 1784 to 1786 they lived in Georgia. They returned to North Carolina and lived in Montgomery County beginning about 1786 or 1787.

    Note: Included on the 1840 Census for Montgomery County, North Carolina is the name Richard Poplin, Sr. It indicates that he was 70 to 80 years old. Included in his family at that time were his wife, also 70 to 80 years old; a female 30 to 40 years old, probably a daughter; and a child 5 to 10 years old, probably a grandchild. His son, John Poplin and family are also in the 1840 Census for Montgomery County. His mother, Lucy Poplin is listed with a note that she was age 89. Also, she was listed in the 1850 Census in Stanly County as being 98 years old.

    The "Poplin Patter" Volume 2, Issue 1 mentions a letter written in 1963 which references Jerry Poplin, Sr., as the son of Richard "Dick" Poplin, Sr. The 1860 census lists Jerry Poplin age 50 living with wife Nancy age 45 and children including Carolina 15, Henry 13, Eliza 11 and Jerry 7. We believe this is Jerry, Jr. inferred in the Poplin Patter letter. His father,Richard Poplin age 84 in the 1850 census is Richard "Dick" Sr., born about 1766. Also, the 1810 Montgomery County, NC census lists a "R. Poplin household including 1 male over 45, 2 males 10-16 and 1 male under 10 years old. This is probably Richard, about 45 and Jeremiah about 3. The Poplin Patter Volume 1, Issue 2 describes a Bible of Richard Henry Poplin, Sr.
