“Revolutionary Soldier—John Northcutt”
“About 1806, John Northcutt, a soldier of the revolution, brought his
family, consisting of his wife, Lyncia (England) Northcutt, and eleven
children from Lee County, Virginia, and settled on Tom’s Creek (not far
from where the present Irving College stands) in Warren Co., Tennessee.
Little is known of his early life. He was present with Washington when
Cornwallis surrendered. At the outbreak of the Creek Indians in Alabama
in 1811. He was among the first Tenn. Volunteers to avenge the massacre
of Fort Minn. Later he was one Jackson’s famous Tennessee riflemen at
New Orleans where on Jan. –, 1815 he was killed. Richard, his eldest
son, was killed or died in this same battle. John Northcutt’s wife,
Lyncia, was left on the farm—children—
Richard—died in New Orleans
Four daughters (who went West, of them I know nothing) Nancy, Mina,
Adrian—Married Sarah Cope
James—Married Susan Hammon
<My note: This lists 11 children. It says 4 daughters, but only 3 are
named. It also does not list Hosea, but adds James. Could James and
Hosea be the same child?>

Haley Vertical File at McMinnville Library—Misc papers
Two of the pages are from a Revolutionary War File for George Haley. I
think we have pretty much shown that this record belongs to George Sway
who said he enlisted under the name of George Haley.
“Pages 40 7 41 Virginia Genealogy—27 Sept. 1733. Returned. Pages

Haley. Proved by Benjamin Cave, Gent., and Humphrey Haley. Certificate
granted executors for obtaining probate, with Benjamin Cave and James
Herndon their securities.”
<Is the John Haley mentioned here the one that married Martha Wells?
Has that John been proven as the father of Barnabas that married Rhoda
Northcutt? Is this the same Edward who wrote the letter for Francis
Northcutt’s Revolutionary Pension?>

There is also a picture of a man on a hourse that says, “Geo. W. Haley,
Dealer in Texas Horses 188 (1 or 7)”
