From: Scott Smith

"In 1760, Burke County was part of the huge Rowan County. In 1777, Rowan was split horizontally, with some Grider farms ending up in Wilkes and some in Burke. In 1841, long after most were dead/gone, the central hearts of both Burke and Wilkes was formed into Caldwell County. Hence, three county names, one residence always."

NC Rev. War Pensioners: Grider, Gryder

Of the men named Grider (Gryder, etc.) who served in the Revolutionary War from North Carolina, four applied for a pension. Incidentally, the names Crider, Greider, Grider, Gryder, etc. are probably variants of the names Kreider, Krider, Kryder, etc. Of these latter spellings, none applied for a pension as having served from North Carolina. Copies of these pension files may be obtained from the National Archives, Washington, D.C.

Ron Head, in his query of June 6, 1998 (#16) presented several Griders whom he suspect were siblings, born in PA (c1750), MD and VA. Jacob Grider, probably his ancestor (and also my wife's) was born in Loudoun Co., VA 1760 and (in his pension application) says he moved to Burke Co., NC when he was 10. Frederick Grider is apparently believed to be the father of these Burke County Griders.

Perhaps I am retracing the work of others, but I ordered the Loudoun County Order Books records, books A - E, covering 1757 - 1753. I had hoped to find Frederick (or some) Grider selling land ca 1770, but did not. I found:

Book A, p. 126, 6-15-1758 Frederick Gryder, also called j. (I?) Frederick Cryder of Frederick County, VA in debt; ibid. p 232 (but no longer of Frederick County); Book B. p. 374, and lastly in Book C, p. 327, Sept 1767. In all these cases he was the defendant in a case of minor debt.

Martin Cryder wa the plaintiff in a debt case in Book C, p. 319, his only appearance. A Martin Cryder lived in Frederick County at this time, writing a will in 1774 which was proved in 1775,

While no record of land being bought or sold was found, this data is consistant with Frederick Grider being the father of Jacob Grider as well as Valentine, also b. Loudoun 1762.
