View Tree for Mahershallal Hashbaz LyleMahershallal Hashbaz Lyle (b. March 14, 1736/37, d. January 30, 1814)

Mahershallal Hashbaz Lyle281 was born March 14, 1736/37281, and died January 30, 1814 in Jackson County, Georgia281. He married Elizabeth Gibson on 1763 in Bedford County, Virginia, daughter of John Gibson and Elizabeth Call.

 Includes NotesNotes for Mahershallal Hashbaz Lyle:
The first record I have of Maher is as a witness to a Halifax Co. deed, 8/5/1763 between John Payne and Ann, Henry, and Rowland Chiles. He lived near the border of Pittsylvania and that part of Bedford Co. which became Campbell Co., from where he sold his land on Cheese Cr. to a John Ward Sr. in 1783. A John Ward had also witnessed the 1763 deed with Maher.
(info that is interesting but probably has no connection Maher, I need to check this property location in relation to the deed below:

This is all I have of Virginia references to Maher except for his claims for revolutionary service in the early 1780's.

Maher married Elizabeth Gibson whose brother, John, lived on adjoining property in Union County, South Carolina. Despite ( or maybe because of) being neighbors and in-laws, these two families evidently were not on the best of terms since Maher and Dilmus Lyle were plaintiffs in a case against Robert, William and John Gibson, defendants who were charged with breaking the peace. The matter was settled "after a promise of good behavior toward the Lyles by the Gibsons for a period of twelve months and one day."
