      William Hearne, second son of Nehemiah and Betty, born 1746; died Sept.21, 1832 in Lowndes Co., Ala. He married his cousin, Tabitha Hearne, who was born 1741, and died Jan. 18, 1838, at the ripe old age of ninety-seven years. They were good Christians and members of the Methodist Church. Immediately after marriage they removed to North Carolina, when it was a new country, where their children were born. At the commencement of the Revolutionary War he enlisted and served through the entire eight years, and only missed being at Gen Gates' defeat at Camden by being left behind with small-pox. Their children were: William, Tabitha, Selby, Abigail, Priscilla, George Thomas Coke, called Thomas, Ebenezer, and one other whose name I have been unable to learn.

      From the Record and Pension Office, War Department, Washington, D. C., the following in regard to William Hearne:

      "The records of this office show that William Hearne served as a private in a company of chasseurs of General Pulaski's Legion, Continental Troops, Revolutionary War. His name appears on a pay-roll, dated at Yorktown, March 19, 1779, which bears the remarks, 'Commencement of pay, June 17;' 'time of service 8 mo. 29 days.' by authority of the Secretary of Wa

      "F. C. Ainsworth,
      "Colonel U. S. Army, Chief of Office."

      Colonel Ainsworth also says, in the same communication:

      "It is proper to add, however, that the collection of Revolutionary War records in this office is far from complete, and that the absence therefrom of any name is by no means conclusive evidence that the person who bore the name did not serve in the Revolutionary Army; it is proper to state that there is reason to believe that provision will be made by Congress in the near future for the publication of the records in question, so that the information they contain will be made available for the use of societies and persons who desire a more extended search of, and report from them than is practical for the department to make at the present time."<
      WHEN DAVID EDWARDS AND HIS SON ISSAC AND OTHER CHILDREN SETTLED ON THEIR PLANTATION, THER WERE STILL MANY INDIANS IN THE AREA. ISSAC'S FIRST HOUSE HAD TINY WINDOWS IN THE UPPER PART OF THE HOUSE SO THEY COULD LOOK FOR INDIANS BEFORE THEY CAME TOO CLOSE.
      THE "BATTLE OF THE HOLY GROUND" HAD BEEN FOUGHT BETEEN THE INDIANS AND THE WHITE MEN ON DEC 23, 1813. THE BATTLE GROUND WAS ON LAND ADJOINING THE EDWARDS LAND. THE HOLY GROUND BAR WAS IN THE ALABAMA RIVER AND WAS STILL VISIIBLE UNTIL THE SAND BAR WAS COVERED WITH WATER WHEN JONES'S BLUFF LOCK & DAM WAS BUILT (1972)>> from William Hearne, Rev. War Gedcom
