born on 12 Dec 1762 in Caswell Co. NC. He died on 30 Nov 1840 in
Posey County, Indiana. He died on 30 Nov 1840 in Posey County,
Indiana. Joseph, the eldest son of Roland was my
Great-great-great-great-great-grandfather. I am more interested
in him and his descendants of course. Joseph was born in Caswell
Co. NC on December 12, 1762. When he was sixteen years old he
enlisted in the Patriot Army. He fought in some capacity until
the end of the war. The records of the pension department
show that he enlisted four different times for a three month term in the regular organized Continental Army. The first time was December 16th, 1778, again in November of 1780, again in 1781, and again in July of 1781.
The Torries were so strong in that community that he could not return to his home when the term expired, so he attached himself to the army of General Marion, and was with him in his raids against the enemy at all times when not serving in the Continental Army. He was never at home from the time of his first enlistment to the end of the war. He endured great hardships especially while with General Marion's Forces. They had no regular government supplies, and had to exist on the returns of the raids against the enemy and voluntary contributions of the neighboring patriots.
They were not strong enough to fight a regular battle with the enemy. They made raids against the enemy and then fled to the swamps when the enemy was too strong for them. The British seldom tried to follow them into the swamps, so they were usually safe when they got there. The Enemy feared the quick raids of "The Swamp Fox" as they called him, more than they did of the regular forces. He fought in the battle of Guilford Court House, Eutah Springs, and many small engagements besides the many raids against the enemy. At the end of the war he returned to his home.
Soon after the war he married a girl 7 years his senior, Henrietta Browning, a neighbor girl. They lived several years on a farm in Virginia and then moved to Tennessee settling on a farm in Sumner County. There they remained until Joseph was seventy years old. In 1832 the sold their land. He, his aged wife, one son and his family, and one daughter andher family started out for Posey County Indiana, where his son Samuel and many other relatives had lived since 1817. They had several wagons in their caravan, and the older people rode in a covered carriage. When almost to their destination, and near their son's home, the carriage
in which the older people were riding overturned while fording the Barrs Creek just south of Cynthiana. The folks were thrown in the water. They were rescued very quickly and carried to the banks. Every attention was given to them but the shock and the chill was too much for Henrietta and she died in just a few minutes. Joseph was not injured, but they took the
body of his beloved wife to their son Samuel's home. They later laid her to rest in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetary donated by their son Samuel McReynolds for the Church and Cemetary. Henrietta was about seventy-seven years old at the time of her death. She and her husband had for many years been members of the Prebyterian Church. They both died strong in their faith and devotion.
