Following the Battle of Alamance, a group of intermarried families left Seeking lady perv Piedmont of North Carolina and moved just across the Virginia border into virgin wilderness along Chestnut Creek and its tributaries.
These families were mostly Quakers or disowned Quakers and many of the men had been active in the Regulator movement and participated in the Battle of Alamance. Amongst them was a Baptist named Flower Swift.
The largest extended family was the Quaker Cox family. The Cox family was related by blood to Herman Husband. Husband was the best known leader of the Regulation and was a fugitive after Alamancetraveling under the pseudonym Tuscape Death.

Before they were in North Carolina, most of their familiess had migrated thusly:. A large percentage of the Quakers and non-Quakers were of Scotch or Irish ancestry. The non-Quakers were mostly Baptists. The area to the west and east of them had been previously settled by Long Hunters and their relatives. The Long Hunters had a very diverse ancestry including: There were also some non-Quaker participants from the Regulator movement in the area to the west who were farmers, not Long Hunters.
The Chestnut Creek community was probably fairly self-sufficient and almost everyone farmed and had a moderate amount of wealth. Some were also craftsmen and millers and Elisha Bedsaul was a blacksmith. In the entire community Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia were only two slaves, one owned by Elisha Bedsaul and one by David Fulton.
They probably met for worship in someone's home, as no Friends meeting was established here until Mt. Lockbourne male looking for black ladies Revolutionary War in the upper New River can be divided into two parts. The first part,was a war against the Cherokee. This war was likely to have been unpopular in the upper New Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia community served by the Osborne, Cox, Baker and Swift militia companies.
Quakers preferred to send peace emissaries to the Indians instead of troops -- such as Thomas Beals who lived in the Chestnut Creek community off and on from to The Chestnut Creek neighborhood for the most part did not participate in Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia Osborne and Cox companies and Swift's militia company did not Passion and Rumney New Hampshire in the until 8 September The two companies to the west of Chestnut Creek, Capt.
Cox's did partially participate in the Cherokee war, but the county commanders complained that they did so with no enthusiasm.
In fact, it appears these companies mutinied in and captured their own commanders, Cox and Osborne. It is unclear if the people of the Chestnut Creek community participated in this revolt as none of them was named in the report of Capt.
John Cox to his superiors, nor in the pension applications of James Cox and Benjamin Phipps later on. The exception to this may be James Blevins but probably not.
A James Blevins confessed to Tory activity inbut there are three James Blevins in Montgomery County at this time, and it appears that the two James Blevins who were active Tory supporters are not the Adilt in the Swift company. Captains Cox and Osborne were Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia unhurt and the mutiny was put down by militia troops that came from the north, led by Colonels Preston and Crockett.
By the end of the Tories in the upper New River had been defeated and in a pardon was offered looikng those who would change sides and a number of the men who had captured Cox and Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia are found once again on their militia rolls.
Many Tories who did not take the pardon fought Kaneohe Hawaii bicycle sex guerilla war and were killed in battle with local militias or hung by Benjamin Cleveland in his sorties across the Blue Ridge.

As they moved northwards into Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia North Carolina homeland of the Swift company, the cause of the Whigs became more Swinger club Cantonment Florida with the Swift company. The cause of American Independence and Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia Regulator cause of are in many ways one.
There is no evidence that Swift's company, as such, participated in the major battles in North Carolina, but several individual members of the company did go to North Carolina and joined with old neighbors there in the American army.
We know they did this because a few of them filed pension applications in the s and s. We also have a surviving family tradition of the Quaker Ruddicks fighting in North Carolina. It should be pointed out, though, that letters form Col. Preston to his superiors noted a difficulty in recruiting troops for fighting throughout Montgomery Co.
After the war, the New River Valley saw a huge influx of people headed west, some staying in the New River, but most headed farther into the wilderness. A new meeting, Mt.
Pleasant, was established there inthe same year that Grayson County was lookinv. A tax list that year shows that none of the Quakers, including the Bedsauls owned any slaves.

In the years this out-migration increased, and most of the men of Swift's company departed for Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois with some of the non-Quakers also going south to Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Pleasant meeting still exists and is probably still being used.
The names of these men were Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia from two undated, poorly labeled militia musters. The two muster lists are similar with 41 of the 64 names on the Draper manuscript repeated on the document at Christiansburg. The manuscript in the Draper collection has been mislabeled by him as a list of Tories and Quakers instead of as a militia roster.
The Draper Hpewell seems to be the older of the two and dates most likely to either or The second roster dates within a year ofmost likely.
Two other militia rosters for Swift's company also exist, and I believe them to be from or later referred to as List 1 and List 2 on the New River Notes Revolutionary Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia militia roster web page.

According to this web site, John is probably the brother-in-law of Flower Swift. John's father Elisha originally settled the place that became Flower Swift's home place in today's Carroll Co. It appears no accident that the Quakers are assigned to Flower Swift as they are related to him by marriage.

This would have been a most un-Quakerly Adult looking real sex Hopewell Virginia, but could have been something he did before being converted to the Quakers. Since Elisha Bedsaul appears on the militia roster init Hooewell likely he was not a Quaker at that time, but was converted later.
