4.DAVID WALLACE SLEETH     1.JOHN ALEXANDER SLEETH, SR.

 

    David Wallace Sleeth, a son of John and Mary Ann Sleeth, was born

May 18, 1762 in Fredrick county, VA.  He married Catherine Carpenter, the daughter of Nicholas and Mary Carpenter.  Catherine's father, Nicholas owned land at Redstone, near Brownsville, Pennsylvania.  He came to Harrison county in 1772 and made settlement on the present site of Stealey Heights, in Clarksburg, Harrison county.

    At the first session of the Harrison county court held on July 20, 1784, David Wallace Sleeth was appointed one of three persons to view and lay out a road from the Richards fort, then near what is now West Milford, by way of the Edmund West mill to the home of John Hacker on Hacker's Creek.

    David Wallace Sleeth was a member of Captain James Booth's company of rangers and spies in 1777-78, having enlisted in May 1777, at West's fort on Hacker's creek for a period of eighteen months, according to his declaration for a pension made August 7, 1832.  After Captain Booth was killed in June 1778, the company was under command of Lt. Edward Freeman until November, when that officer left for Kentucky without issuing discharge papers to his men.  Soon after that David Wallace Sleeth joined Captain George Jackson's company of scouts at Buckhannon and served until the latter part of 1780.

      According to Lucullus W. McWhorter’s “The Border Settlers of North Wester Virginia from 1786 to 1795”, p. 444, David applied for a pension in Lewis County VA August 7, 1832. His pension was granted. W.G. Singleton, Special Pension Agent, examined David’s claim October 3, 1834 and forwarded it to the pension office with the following note: “This man Sleeth is the same who as magistrate certified such a number of declarations from Lewis County, it is currently stated (and no doubt of the fact) that he received form $10 to $20 for each and every declaration of his certifying through his corrupt means, many frauds have been committed. The narrative of service here detailed by him, you will, I presume, compare with his declaration, whether they be the same or not is wholly immaterial. There is no doubt of his being an impostor”

    David Wallace Sleeth, qualified in January 1793, as a deputy sheriff and three months later was recommended to the Governor of the state for appointment of lieutenant of militia. In 1794, he was sent to Richmond by the county court to convey thirty-two copies of the acts of the general assembly and of Congress to Harrison county.  He was appointed a justice of the peace for Harrison county, April 8, 1817; and a school commissioner for Lewis county in 1819, after that county was formed.  Records show he held

the office of magistrate as late as 1825.

    Catherine (Carpenter) Sleeth died June 17, 1828.  After Catherine's death, David. married Mrs. Susanna Simpson.  David and Susanna were married April 5, 1834 in Lewis county, VA.

    David Wallace Sleeth, Sr. died on June 28, 1839 and is buried on the Farnsworth Plantation, near Troy, Gilmer county, WV.  Two unmarked graves beside David's are believed to be those of his wives.
