Descendants of Father '1st Gen' McBrayer


11. JAMES3 MCBRAYER (JAMES2, FATHER '1ST GEN'1) was born Bef. 1779 in PA or VA, and died Bet. 1820 - 1830 in Franklin Co. or Anderson Co., KY.. He married NANCY 'NAOMI' HENDRICKS January 11, 1793 in Mercer Co., KY. She died Aft. 1830.

Notes for J
AMES MCBRAYER:
James' nickname may have been 'Chad'. James and Hugh were hobbling the horses for the night when a band of Indians came out of the woods and captured Hugh. James was able to escape across the river and alert the fort. See the notes under James' brother, Hugh.

Notes for N
ANCY 'NAOMI' HENDRICKS:
The 1830 U.S. Census for Anderson Co., pg 97, lists as head of household, a 'Naomi' McBrayer, but the ages of herself and children correspond with those of other records. Also a wife by the name of Naomi is united with James on a deed dated in 1806 (Deed Bk B, pg 163, Franklin Co. Clerk's Office). This leads us to believe that his wife's name may have been as listed above - Naomi. Also "Marriage Bonds and Consents 1786 - 1850" (submitted by Cathie Hargreaves) lists her as "NAOMI HENDRAKES"; date of marriage was shown as 14 Jan 1794; bondsman was JAMES PAUL, Bride's mother was MARY HENDRAKES.

Notes for E
STHER MCBRAYER:
From the files of Dan Cook: He states that: "Esther and her four sisters escaped death as children, when for some unknown reason, they were not in school on the 25th of July, 1764, when it was attacked by three Delaware Indians who killed the schoolmaster and 10 pupils." (note: Esther would have been about 17 years of age in 1764. It is doubtful that she would have been attending school at this late age.)

Her name was spelled Ester in her will, however she signed with her mark.

DEATH:

Andrew Reid, (1753-1804), enlisted 1777 under Capt. James Poe, Franklin County, Pennsylvania militia, Co. 3, Eighth Battalion. He was born in Ireland,came to America, 1775, settled in Antrim Township, Pennsylvania, where he died.

CHRONOLOGY:
--1751--Source 3; "---came to America, c. 1751 as a fugitive in the hold of a ship, after having struck a British official during a dispute over the division of shocks of grain in a field. After arrival in America he came to Antrim Township, Franklin Co., PA
--1751--Source 6 & 11; Andrew Reed left Ireland and emigrated to America as a fugitive from British tyranny.
--1760--Source 4; Andrew Reid came to America about 1760;
--5 Feb 1770--Source 3 & 11; Andrew purchased property from his step-father
David McBrayer in, Antrim Twp., Cumberland (now Franklin) Co., Pennsylvania and named it "Reed's Purchase" ; (Source 6);
--1786--Source 12; p. 560; Andrew Reid was included in list of taxables;
--1790--Source 17; The 1790 census of heads of families for Pennsylvania, listed the following for that portion of Franklin County that included Antrim Twp.

Name Males 16+ Males<16 Females
Reed, Andw 2 4 6

The information that is available on dates shows 2 males definitely 16 or over and 3 males definitely under 16. It shows that one, Thomas, could be 15 or 16.
If he was 15, then numbers would be 2 and 6. The census, however, calls for 6 females but the available information shows only 5. This is, however, probably the Andrew Reid family of interest. Two names away is a James Reed with 5 females in the family. About 15 names away is a William Reed with 1 male over 16, 1 male under 16 and 2 females. It is possible that these are relatives. There is a strong possibility of a relationship between the families. There are at least 7 other Reed heads of household in the county.

Finally, one person shows a Ruth as a daughter of Andrew Reed. If she did, in fact, exist and was born before 1790, then the numbers would fit perfectly for Andrew Reid of interest.

--1792--Source 17; p. 544; The `Old White Church' in Greencastle, was erected in 1792. It stood on the south side of Baltimore Street, east end of the town. It was made of logs and clapboards and painted white. The deed to the church lot was made by James McLanahan and John Allison and the trustees, George Gelby, George Clark, Andrew Reid, John Cunningham and James Crooks."

In 1826 the Presbyterian Church called "Old Red Meeting House" was united in faith with the "Old White Church". A brick church was erected in Greencastle and the original pasters relocated.

--Probate began on 25 March 1819. Will. Witness: John McLanahan of James.

BIOGRAPHY:
--SOURCE 1; "Andrew Reid's sense of justice became outraged one summer in early manhood when an agent collecting tithes in the grain field took shocks or stocks belonging to his father and not to the church of Ireland or the Anglican Church. Andrew's fist clenched, his arm swung, and came in contact with the agent's lower jaw in a shattering manner. The arm of the law would soon be upon Andrew so he gathered a few belongings and went off by night to the coast to persuade a sea captain to give him passage. Fortunately for later generations, he succeeded in his escape.

"After landing in Pennsylvania, he made his way westward into the wide, fertile Cumberland Valley in the latter 1760's. Andrew Reed's journey ended in Antrim Township, Cumberland (now Franklin Co., Pa.).

"At 36 this Ulster Scot, or as we call him in this country, Scotch-Irishmen, cast an eye upon the fair lasses and found one Esther McBrayer to his liking, and what was equally important, he to her liking. She was one of five lovely daughters of David and Elizabeth McBrayer who had come to the valley in 1737 among the earliest inhabitants. .....

"Andrew not only took to himself a wife, but he also purchase his father-in-law's farm of 219 1/2 acres February 5, 1770 and registered the old warrant for the property under the title "Reed's Purchase". By the time of the Revolutionary War three bairns romped across the floor.

"When the war clouds broke, Andrew Reed served as early as Oct. 23 1777 in the Cumberland County Militia as a private 6th Class, in the Third Company of the Eighth Battalion under Captain James Poe, his neighbor and friend who later attested that the signature on Andrew Reed's will was "the proper hand writing of Andrew Reid." After the reorganization of the militia in 1780, Andrew served under Captain John Wood in the Seventh Company of the First Battalion.

"Providence smiled upon the Reed plantation as Andrew Termed his farm on Conococheague Creek, locally known as the "Gig". The Reed 'mansion' boasted Windsor chairs, a tea table, a corner cupboard, two small glasses (mirrors), a breakfast table, a dining table, a small table,and a set of books among other things.

"At the time of his death in May 1819, his barn housed nine horses, ten steers, five milk cows, eleven calves, sixteen pigs, and sixteen sheep, and garnered in the grainery were 220 bushels of wheat, 100 of rye, 70 of corn, and 25 of oats with 12 acres in wheat and 13 acres in rye. One pounds of bacon also hung in the pantry.

"The table in the Reed house groaned with the weight of abundance, and there were always hungry appetites with five boys and five girls growing up in the house.

"Andrew Reed was a substantial and respected member of his community. Following the Revolution economic conditions declined and many former soldiers received depreciation land rights as pay. Andrew purchased these rights for hard cash which the veterans needed, purchasing 25,000 acres of land in Ohio which an unscrupulous lawyer named Irwin ended up primarily owning.

"Andrew Reed was elected a ruling elder of the Greencastle Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, serving as early as 1782 which is as far back as records exist for the congregation. He was one of the men who oversaw the construction of a large log church locally known as "The White church" a few years later.

"Andrew made at least one trip to Western Pennsylvania to visit a son (David) and family living there." (According to T.S. Reid, grandson, one trip was to take provisions over the mountains after the burning of David's cabin) "In 1786 Adrew Reed owned 219 acres, 4 horses, 4 cows, and one indentured servant, valued at 728 pounds. By 1807 his land and stock was valued at $3,580.

"The infirmities of age began to take their toll, and Andrew made his will January 11, 1819. In May, 1819, he was gathered to his fathers, full of years, much loved and honored, a venerable patriarch. His remains were probably buried Brown's Mill Burying Ground near his respected minister, Rev. Matthew Lind. His compatriot, Captain James Poe was also interred in this plot."

--Source 4; "From the best information I have secured I learn that the original progenitor of the Reid family in America was Andrew Reid. He came from North Ireland and was of what is commonly known as Scotch-Irish descent. His ancestors had been in Ireland but a few generations before his birth, and had originally come from the Reid settlement near Edinburgh, Scotland. Andrew Reid was compelled to leave Ireland because of trouble with a tax collector, and came to America about 1760. The vessel on which he sailed was searched by an officer of King George II in an endeavor to located him, as the offense of interference with a tax collector in those days was a serious one. However, the Captain, having taken a liking to him, secreted him in the vessels that he was not found and made his way safely to America.

"He married Esther McBriar, also of Scotch-Irish descent, and the only child of a Colonial farmer (wrong-not the only child). They had eleven children, six boys and five girls, but I have been able to learn the names of only seven, and have endeavored to trace only the descendants of David Reid, who is my great-grandfather.

--Source 11; "Andrew was a shoemaker, and his inventory recorded his tools;

--Source 20; "My grandfather, Andrew Reid, was a fugitive from British tyranny. When about eighteen years of age his father sent him to the harvest field along with the tithe-master, to divide the grain. The Johnny Bull claimed a shock that he knew was his father's. The disputed became violent, and Johnny's insolence becoming insufferable, the youth's Irish blood became master of his nerves and his right fist came in contact with Johnny's head with such force as to bring Johnny's head in contact with the ground, and according to British law, as defined by Blackstone, my grandfather's right arm must be confiscated and become the property of Johnny Bull---a little circumstance that, upon the eve of the moment, changed the location of the nervous attack from the right arm to my grandfather's heels, and as the wind was blowing westward, his corporeal system was put in motion in that direction, and was propelled with such force as in a few hours to lodge him in the hold of a vessel about to sail for America. That an Irishman should have the audacity to knock down one of King Georg the II's officers, and make his escape, was not To be thought of, and as a sequence his Majesty's minions were put upon the track, and the very vessel in which he was secreted was searched. But the Captain, being a noble fellow, ran the risk of what should follow if her were discovered, rather than give him up to the merciless laws of Great Britain. Of that part of his life, between the time of his shipping for America and his marriage, I have no tradition. He married an only child, a Miss Esther McBriar.
