PENNSYLVANIA ARCHIVES

The companies commanded by Captain Trent, Shannon, Deimer and Perry, were recruited under authority of a proclamation issued by Governor George Thomas, dated June 9, 1746, reciting the King's orders of the ninth of April, to raise four hundred men within the Province of Pennsylvania, to be employed in concert with the regular forces in the immediate reduction of Canada. The instructions for recruiting, together with a copy of Capt. Shannon's commission will be found in Pa. Archives, First Series, vol I, pages 688, 689. These companies went into winter quarters at Albany, N.Y., 1746-1747, and were finally discharged October 31, 1747, "the late intended expedition against Canada having been by his Majesty laid aside for the present." Votes of Assembly, Vol. IV, pages 50 and 71, Col. Records, Vol. V, 127.

Rowan County, North Carolina

Rowan County was formed in 1753 from the northern part of Anson County. It was named for Matthew Rowan, acting governor of North Carolina from 1753 to 1754.

 

Originally, Rowan County was a vast territory with an indefinite western boundary. Reductions in its extent began in 1770, when the eastern part of it was combined with the western part of Orange County to become Guilford County, North Carolina. In 1771 the northeastern part of what remained of Rowan County became Surry County. In 1777 the western part of Rowan County became Burke County. In 1788 the western part of the now much smaller Rowan County became Iredell County. In 1822 the eastern part of the still shrinking county became Davidson County. Finally, in 1836 the part of Rowan County north of the South Yadkin River became Davie County.

Email from Dorothy Baker  (January 2, 2008)
 

Picture of Sarah Byrn, I copied this from one my Aunt Helen had, and it is her handwriting at the top of the picture I believe. It states she was born in Dublin, Ireland and died when she was either 96 or 99. I thought she was born in NC, but I could be wrong.  I do know there is a Purcell castle in Ireland, or the remains of one. Aunt Helen thought genealogy was a waste of time, but she did love me so helped when she could.  Sarah is not buried in Harrison County, Indiana but I do know where she is. I don't believe there is a grave for Uriah, probably lost over the ages.  He was dead by 1850 as he was not on the 1850 census with Sarah.
