PENSION CLAIM OF JOHN CASH National Archives W5894{Abstracted from Microfilm copies by Thelma F. Prince, compiler]

JOHN CASH of Henry Co. Ga. was a private in the company commanded by Capt. Sayle in the Va. line for 8 months.  Inscribed oh the roll of Ga. at the rate of $26.66/yr.to begin 4 Mar. 1831.  Certificate #16824 of pension issued ? day of Oct.(blank) and sent to A.G. Morris, McDonough,Ga. Arrears to 4 Sept.1833. Semi-annual allowance ending ?____  1834=$13.33. Total $79.98. Rev. Claim, Act 7 June 1832. Rec. by _ Rice, Clk, Bk E, Vol. 6. p. 87.

Henry Co. Ga.  On the - day of Nov. 1832 personally came JOHN CASH, a resident of Henry Co., 7th Dist., aged 75 yrs on 5th Apr.last, before the Justice of the Inferior Court, who being duly sworn, makes the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed 7 June 1832.  He enlisted to go out on the Cherokee Expedition on Holston River about the long Islands.  He enlisted for during the expedition and was in service for 3 months, from September until just before Christmas.  He enlisted in Amherst Co. Va. by Capt.  John Sayle, Lt. James Franklin, Ensign Jesse Allen, and he thinks William & Nicholas Jones were sergeants.

This company formed what was called a ranging or scouting party-there were no higher officers . A small skirmish took place at Fort Chissell.  The Indian towns were destroyed and the country generally had been saved from the Indians by previous larger forces consequently the company returned home to Amherst Co. where this deponent was born and raised and lived for 6 yrs after the close of the Revolution, and then moved into Bedford Co. Va. in the vicinity of the Rev. James Turner, lived there 13 yrs, and moved to Elbert Co. Ga. from there to here.

He marched with the company by the Big Lick, Botecourt, Va., English Ferry on New River, Fort Chissell & thence in various directions through the country.  During this last winter of 1832 his house was consumed by fire, consuming his discharge from Capt.  Sayle and a copy of an oath he made to save the country as also required.

His brother, PETER CASH of DeKalb County is acquainted with the circumstances of his enlistment, absence and return & who was a witness to other services rendered, as he will testify.  Also, BARTLY CASH, one of sd company living yet in Amherst Co. Va., HOWARD CASH of Habersham, Ga., JOSEPH BOND, residence unknown, WILLIAM TYRY, JOHN SMITH, JAMES WARE, Dec'd, EDMUND HODGES, DAVID BELLOO.

Deponent was on 3 tours in the Virginia Militia.  The militia was divided into numbers of ten and they werepermitted to choose their numbers or were drafted.  Deponent and his brother PETER CASH (who was present when this statement was made) chose number two and went into the militia service at the Barracks near Charlottesville in Albemarle & served 1 month Under Capt.  James Pamplin.  Col.  Taylor was in command of the Garrison.  No written discharges were given.

Albemarle and Amherst counties had charge of the Barracks where were confined the prisoners of Burgoyne's defeated army who were afterwards removed to Winchester, Va.  Again, deponent served in the second division, counted as minuteman, under Capt.  Samuel Higginbotham, Lt.  James Ware, Ensign Joseph Staples.  This company marched through Albemarle, Fluvanna, & Goochland Counties to Richmond, Va. and took charge of the artillery.  Capt.  John Barnett's company marched with Higginbotham to Richmond from there to Petersburg.

His company remained at Richmond until the end of the monthly tour & were dismissed by company until called again into service under Capt.  Pamplin, marched to Jamestown, having first joined the main army under Gen.  Lawson at the Ground Squirrel Bridge, was in hearing of the firing at the Battle of Jamestown.  Next night after the battle, we marched by moonshine to the Battleground, were fired upon & retreated past Hickory Mill Church where wounded persons were receiving aid, from thence to Mobbin Hill, from thence to Richmond to New Castle upon Pamunkee River & there met Capt.  Samuel Cabell, then lately exchanged from British confinement.  About this time, Gen.  Lawson, for some misconduct, was deprived of his sword and the command was given to Gen.  Stevens.  From New Castle deponent was marched towards York.  A relief from Amherst overtook them at the Prickly Pair old field where he was discharged with others on 14th Aug. immediately preceding the capture of Cornwallis in Oct.

Deponent received a written discharge which was burned up 4 Dec. 1831 when deponent lost nearly all his property.  Deponent was on a trip after salt to Fredericksburg when an....... came for his decision to go to York, by which absence he missed being present at the taking of Cornwallis.

 Deponent is known by the Rev.  James Gamble, John Lamar, Doctors Jacob Stokes & Francis E. Morrison.  He hereby relinquishes any claim whatsoever to a pension except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any state ... further that nothing but old age & necessity arising from infirmity of himself & a helpless female family induces him now to call upon the generosity of his country.

s/John Cash
Henry Co. Ga. 2 Nov. 1832.  Personally appears PETER CASH who swears that he was present with his brother, JOHN CASH, in every service mentioned (Cherokee excepted), therefore making his said statement his own (being present), and swears that it is true in every particular as to the service, & believes it to be true
throughout.  A full or similar statement ... by reference to a Declaration of deponent himself for his own right which he will present to this Department.

LUCY CASH, WIDOW OF JOHN CASH, PENSION CLAIM
Has a number, may be 9087? (unclear).  Georgia.  LUCY CASH, Dec'd, widow of JOHN, a Private in the Revolution.  Inscribed on the roll at $26.66/yr, to begin 4 Mar. 1843, and ending 23 Jan. 1848.  Certificate of pension issued 22 Mar. 1852 and sent to ANDREW R. MOORE, Griffin, Ga.  Acts of 3 Mar. 1843 & 17 June 1844.  Rec.  Bk A, Vol. 2,p.42.   In order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress 7 July 1838 entitled Act granting half pay and pension to certain widows.

Pike Co. Ga. 15 Mar. 1845.  Personally appears before a Justice of the Inferior Court of sd county, LUCY CASH, a resident of Pike Co. Ga., aged 84 yrs, who being duly sworn makes the following declaration.  She is the widow of JOHN CASH who was a Private in the Revolutionary War, having in his life obtained a pension under the Act of 7 June 1832, his services set forth in his Declaration on file in the War Dept. she presumes.

She further says she believes from information received from ANDREW R. MOORE of Henry Co. Ga. that the pension certificate of John Cash was forwarded to the pension office at Savanna (sic) at or about the time of his last application for a pension which he received in the month of Feb. 1836 and died 13,Aug. next thereafter.  She married John Cash, 23 Jan. 1782.  She was born 3 Mar. 1760 and John, as well as she remembers, was born 26 Apr. the year she cannot recollect but understood he lacked from the 3 Mar. to the 26 Apr. of being 3 yrs older than herself.  She declares that a Bible which contained the dates of her and John's birth and marriage was burned with their-dwelling house in Dec. 1831.

She was married, after publication of banns, at the house of Charles Rose by a traveling minister, believes there was no license produced or read in the ceremony.  Her marriage took place in Amherst Co. & she believes there is no record of her marriage.  She & John lived 7 yrs in Amherst Co., 13 yrs in Bedford Co., moved to Elbert Co. Ga. about the year 1802 and lived there until 1829, then moved to Henry Co. Ga. and lived there until 13 Aug. 1836 at which date John Cash died.  She declares that she was not married to him prior to his leaving the service.  But the marriage took place previous to 1 Jan. 1794 viz at the time stated above.  She is unable to appear in Court by reason of infirmity.

Hartford Green, J.I.C.
s/Lucy Cash (her mark)
Dekalb Co. Ga. 18 Jan. 1848.  Personally came before me, John Flowers, an acting J.P. for sd county, WILLIAM CASH, who being duly sworn saith that JOHN CASH late of Henry Co. Ga., deceased, who was a Revolutionary soldier was the brother of deponent and was about 4 yrs older than deponent & he deponent will be 85 yrs of age if he lives to see the 14th day of Feb. next.

Deponent's father and his family resided at the time of the Revolutionary War in Amherst Co. Va.  Deponent was not present when his brother John Cash deceased was married, but has the best of reasons to believe that he was lawfully married as he resided in the neighborhood at the time and heard he was married on a certain day and that there was an....... at his father's house on the next day & from that time until the day of his death he & his wife lived together as man and wife and raised a family of sons & daughters.

The reason why deponent was not at the wedding himself is that he was sick at the time and unable to go.  The name of John Cash's wife prior to her marriage was LUCY CAMPBELL, and a short time after deponent heard of their marriage he went to his brother John's house & saw him & Lucy living together as husband and wife, and as to the date of marriage deponent thinkss that it took place previous to the year 1794 for following reasons.  Deponent was married himself 1781 which was the summer before Lord Cornwallis was taken & his brother John was married in the winter after the surrender of Cornwallis to wit in the winter of 1782.  He knows that John was married previous to the birth of deponent's oldest child, & by reference to the family record in which deponent registered the ages of his children he sees that his oldest child which was a daughter by the name of EFFEY was born on 3 May 1783.

s/William (x) Cash
DeKalb Co. Ga. 18 Jan. 1848.  Personally came before me, John Flowers, acting J.P., WILLIAM EZZARD, who after being sworn, saith that he is well acquainted with WILLIAM CASH who has made the foregoing affidavit & has known him to be a man of good moral character & unimpeachable veracity.

Pike Co. Ga. 9 June 1851.  Before me, Jason Burr, J.P., personally came NANCY and MARY CASH, who after being sworn, say that as well as they remember, their father, JOHN CASH, died in Aug. 1836 or 1837.  Their mother, the widow of John Cash, died on the thirtieth day Jan. 1848.  That they two and JAMES CASH of Campbell Co. Ga. are all the children of said John and Lucy Cash whom they know now to be living.  STEPHEN CASH resided in Mississippi 2 yrs ago.  In that time they have not heard from him and therefore do not know whether he is living or not.  All of them are much over 21 yrs of age.  The youngest, MARY CASH, is 50 yrs old.

s/Mary (x) Cash
s/Nancy (x) Cash
Pike Co. GA. 12 June 1851.  Affidavit of ANDREW R. MOORE saying he is well acquainted with NANCY & MARY CASH, and certifies to their being persons of veracity.  He says that from his own knowledge of their parents and their decease, he has no doubt about the truth of their statements in the above affidavit.  s/Andrew R. Moore

The last page of this record, sent by the National Archives to the compiler, is typewritten with some information filled in by hand, evidently a reply to someone's request for information.  It is signed, Commissioner.  The page says Lucy Cash died 23 Jan. 1848, and children of John and Lucy Cash were: James, b. 6 Nov. 1784; Nancy, 61 yrs old & Mary Cash, 52 yrs old in 1853, and Jane who died 14 Aug. 1848, and Stephen.  Brothers (of John, it is assumed the writer meant), Peter, William, and James.  It is not stated on the page as to where the writer got his information, and this page is not part of the original record.  Published works tell the compiler a pension claim was filed also on 16 Mar. 1853, but those papers were not received by the compiler from National Archives.  All papers are not sent in a file unless specifically requested.  A son, George, died 14 Aug. 1848, is given on the 1853 claim, according to published works.  Thelma F.
