DESCENDANTS OF NATHANIEL CARPENTER

    Researching the Carpenter lines is rendered difficult by the large

number of families bearing that name.  The 1784 census of Virginia

lists six heads of households named William Carpenter.

    In this paper we will present four brothers, sons of Nathaniel and

Tamar (Coles) Carpenter, who moved from New York state and settled in

present day Alleghany County VA in 1746.

    Nathaniel Carpenter was probably born about 1670.  He married

Tamar Coles.

2.JOSEPH COLES CARPENTER    1.NATHANIEL CARPENTER

 

    Joseph Coles Carpenter, a son of Nathaniel and Tamar (Coles)

Carpenter, was born about 1693 and died about 1780.  He moved from New

York state to present Alleghany County VA (then Botetourt County) in

1746 and began a settlement of Jackson's River near present day

Covington, VA.  He was accompanied by his brothers, Solomon, Zopher

and Nicholas.  After building a cabin and planting crops, he went to

New York and brought his family to Alleghany County in the fall of

1746.

    Joseph received a grant of 782 acres of land on Jackson's River in

Augusta County VA June 1, 1750.  On August 17, 1762, Joseph conveyed

230 acres on the Jackson River to John Mann, who was married to

Joseph's daughter Frances.  On May 20, 1765, Joseph conveyed 232 acres

of land to his son Joseph Carpenter Jr.  On May 20, 1763, Joseph

conveyed 160 acres of land to his son Solomon Carpenter.

   Joseph is believed to have been the Joseph Carpenter who served in

Captain John Dickenson's Rangers in the French and Indian War.

    Joseph's first wife is unidentified.  She is believed to have died

in Augusta County about 1750.  Joseph married Judith Scott about 1751.

    On November 29, 1751, Joseph was recorded as legal guardian of

Judith Scotts children.

CARPENTER    1.NATHANIEL CARPENTER

 

    The parentage of Jeremiah Carpenter has long been disputed and is

still uncertain today.  Jim Comstock's "West Virginia Encyclopedia"

lists him as a son of Sethison Carpenter. 

    One branch of the Carpenter line maintains through traditional

history that Jeremiah was a son of William Carpenter, who was

probably a son of Joseph Carpenter, an original settler in present day

Alleghany County VA.  This traditional history is supported by Gay

Arret's "Historical Sketches of Alleghany County VA" on page 11.  In

describing a 1764 Indian raid, Arret states, "The party which came to

Jackson River traveled down Dunlap's Creek and crossed Jackson River

above Fort Young in the nigh and went on down to William Carpenter's

(Low Moor) where there was a stockade for under the care of a Mr.

Brown."  "The Indians met Carpenter near his home and killed him and

made prisoners of Jeremiah Carpenter, a son of the slain man, and two

sons of Brown and one woman.  The Indians despoiled the house and

taking some horses made a rapid retreat."

    Although there are at least four Jeremiah Carpenters reported to

have been alive in VA in 1750-1800, only one is ever known to have

been captured by the Indians and held for a lengthy time.  All sources

agree that the Jeremiah who lived in present day Braxton County WV

served a lengthy captivity with the Indians.

    Morton's "A Centennial History of Alleghany County VA" lists

Jeremiah as a son of Solomon Carpenter, an original settler in the

bounds of that county.

   Jeremiah Carpenter, a son of Solomon and Sudna (Hughes) Carpenter,

was born in present day Alleghany County VA in 1755 and died in

Braxton County VA about 1832.  In 1764, his uncle was killed by

marauding Indians and Jeremiah was captured and carried to the Indian

village "Old Town", across the Ohio River, opposite the mouth of the

Great Kanawha River, where he was adopted and lived until he was

eighteen years old.  At that time he was exchanged (an action to which

he was opposed).

    Jeremiah served in Colonel William Fleming's Botetourt County

regiment at the battle of Point Pleasant, VA during Lord Dunmore's

war.

    Jeremiah married his cousin Elizabeth Mann March 8, 1785.

Elizabeth was a daughter of Moses and Fanny Mann.

    Jeremiah Carpenter, William Scott and Richard Mays patented 900

acres of land in present day Braxton County WV June 18, 1782 by virtue

of Treasury Warrant No.12359.  On April 20, 1785m they patented

another 1,000 acres in the same area.

    About 1780, Jeremiah traveled with his wife, and brother,

Benjamin, to the Elk river where Centralia, Braxton County, is now.

    He made a clearing in the virgin forest and built his home, about

one-fourth of a mile above Dry Run.  His brother Benjamin soon went

back to VA, returning with a wife.  Ben built his cabin at the mouth

of Holly River, four miles below Jeremiah's home.

    Many small bands of Indians roamed through the wilderness, so it

wasn't long until the new settlement was discovered.  One of the

Indians slipped in, killed Benjamin's wife, and then hid in the cabin.

Benjamin, his mother and a niece were on the south side of the river,

where he was clearing a field and burning log heaps.  Not knowing what

had happened, Benjamin started to the cabin to prepare a meal.  An

Indian fired  at him from the hill and missed.  Benjamin ran to the

cabin for his rifle.  As he raised his hand to reach for his rifle,

which hung over the door, he was shot under the arm and killed by the

Indian that had scalped his wife.  When his mother saw what had

happened, she hid the girl in a hollow stump and covered it with a

rock.  She then ran up the river to get Jeremiah.

    That night the Carpenters left their home and made their way up

the river.  They waded in the water to hide their trail, making their

way up Laurel, and then up Camp Run, where they climbed the hill and

hid under a rock, where they remained for some time.  The cave is

still known as "Saulie's Rock", because it was here that Jeremiah's

son, Solomon Carpenter, was born.

       CALHOUN COUNTY LINES & LINKS for December 1983 states that

Jeremiah sold "a small tract of land on Elk River at the mouth of

Holly river" to Peter Coger in 1817.  This same source also lists

Jeremiah's wife as Elizabeth Mann.

    Jesse Carpenter was a son of William Carpenter.  He served as an

Indian spy during the Revolution, under Major William Lowther and in

Colonel Joseph Crockett's Regiment. This regiment was called Illinois

as it was under George Rogers Clark which went to Ohio country to

subdue the Indians at Vincennes.  These soldiers protected the

Continental Army from having to fight on two fronts, Indians in the

West and British in the East.  Hulda Hogshed reports that he was also

a veteran of the War of 1812.

    The name of his first wife is unknown.  He married Margaret

Cottrell in Braxton County VA (WV) in 1814.  Margaret, a daughter of

Thomas Sr. and Mary "Polly" (O'Brien) Cottrell. , was born in 1800 and

died in Clay County WV November 24, 1880.  Jesse died in Braxton

County VA (WV) between 1843 and 1850.

    John Carpenter, a son of Jeremiah and Elizabeth (Mann) Carpenter,

was probably born about 1795 and was killed in Roane County VA (WV)

about 1835.  He married Judith "Polly" Miller.

    One account alleges that Judith was the daughter of Samuel Miller

and Rebecca Carpenter and the niece of John.  This is doubtful, since

Rebecca was born in 1793 and John and Judith's son Elijah was born in

1828.  Judith was most probably a sister of Samuel Miller.

    After John died, Judith married Jesse Tanner.

VA and died in Clay County Va (WV) November 7, 1861.  He married

Elizabeth ------.  Elizabeth was born in VA about 1830.

    Jesse Carpenter has long been believed been killed in Gilmer

County VA (WV) during the Civil War by a group of Confederate

guerrillas.  James A. Rogers and Jesse were killed at the same time

and they were listed as neighbors in the 1860 Clay County VA (WV)

census.

    Clayburn Pierson reported the events of the night of November 7,

1861 as follows:

    "The victims were James Rogers, a peaceful and respected citizen,

and Solomon Carpenter, his Neighbor.  The murderers were a band of low

characters claiming to be rebel soldiers led by Perry Connolly of bush

whacking fame.  The murderers came to the homes of these innocent men

in the dead hours of the night; their wives were absent from home

waiting on a sick woman.

These fiends dragged their victims out of their beds and away from

their children, took them a short distance, bound them back to back,

and riddled their bodies with bullets."

 

Children of Jesse and Elizabeth Carpenter.
