     Evan Henton was born circa 1755 in Virginia.2 He married Mary ?.1 Evan died on 11 February 1781 in Indian Camp, Wapatomica, Logan Co., Ohio.1,2

     Excerpts from notes on Evan Henton3 provided by John Callarman are repeated here with Mr. Callarman's permission.

     From John Callarman notes: "John W. Wayland, in "A History of Rockingham County, Virginia," page 608, quoted by Mary D. Atkinson, reports that "Hentons were on both sides of the Rockingham-Shenandoah line in the Virginia Censuses of 1783, 1784, 1785. Of this family, Evan Henton joined Capt. James Harrod's company of about 30 men, 1774, and helped lay off Harrodstown (now Harrodsburg, first town in Kentucky. A lot was assigned to Henton and an adjoining one to Daniel Boone. Upon one or both of these lots was built a double log cabin, 'known indiscriminately as Boone's or Hinton's cabin' until burnt by the Indians, 1777.
     "Evan Henton was one of the first settlers of Shelby County, Kentucky, and another Henton - William Henton - was one of several children claimed to be the first white male child born in Kentucky."
     Compiler (John Callarman) has photographed the granite monument that sits not far from downtown Harrodsburg, Kentucky, that marks the site where Evan Henton shared a cabin with Daniel Boone. The stone reads:
     "Boone Cabin Site.
     "In 1774 on this site, Daniel Boone and Evan Hinton built a double log cabin. This cabin was occupied by Boone on his visits here and was burned by the Shawnee Indians March 1, 1777. Daniel Boone assisted James Harrod and his men in laying off Harrodstown."

     Further information from John Callarman's notes on Evan Henton: A history of Kentucky, compiled by Lewis Collins, on pages 709-800, in a chapter of Shelby County, writes of Squire Boone's station: "The first station established within the bounds of what is now Shelby County was in the fall of 1779, and what Squire Boone, in a deposition taken Oct. 30, 1797, referred to as 'his station at the Painted Stone.' Besides his own family, the following men, with the families of some of them, were dwellers there: In 1779, Evan Hinton and Peter Paul; and in June 1780, if not earlier, Alex. Bryant, John Buckles, Richard Cates, Chas. Doleman, John and Jos. Eastwood, Jere. Harris, John Hinton, Abraham Holt, Morgan Hughes, John McFadden, John Nichols, John Stapleton, Robert Tyler, Sen., Abraham Vanmeter, James Wright, Adam, Jacob and Peter Wickersham and George Yunt."

     Concerning the death of Evan Henton, John Callarman provides the following: Nelle (Henton) Edwards wrote that the following account of how Evan died was taken from George Holeman's Military History:
     "Though Major George Rogers Clark commanded the troops, the organization was known as Harrod's Company. About the spring of 1779, the Indians ceased their hostilities, and on February 11, 1781, a wagoner by the name of Evan Hinton was sent from the Block House at Louisville to Boone's old station for provisions, and a lot of empty barrels to be used for salting down meat for the troops.
     "George Holeman, age 18, and Richard LaRue, age 19, were sent as guards to protect the wagon from the Indians who lurked along the road. Evan Henton drove the wagon, and LaRue walked a few paces ahead and Holeman the same distance behind. As they ascended a hill about eight miles from Louisville, Henton heard someone say, 'Whoa.' He stopped the horses, and the notorious Simon Girty, with thirteen Indians, demanded surrender or forfeit of life. The little band was outnumbered so, of course, surrendered.
     "The wagon and contents were left by the roadside, but the horses and the prisoners, under direction of their captors, made a hasty dash for the Ohio River, crossed, and went to Camp Waupacanatta, Ohio. Here, each prisoner had to 'run the gauntlet' and each made a hairbreadth escape.
     "At night, the three prisoners were tied together for safety. Henton, who was desperate to see his wife and children, loosed himself and escaped, only to be recaptured and meet death by means of the stake. The scalp of Henton was threateningly exhibited to Holeman and LaRue with assurance that they would meet the fate of their red-headed friend if they attempted to escape.
     "Holeman was adopted as a son and LaRue as a brother of the Indians. They later escaped. Holeman served with General Clark in 1786 or '87. He married Elizabeth Fisher of Louisville and moved to Woodford County, Kentucky."

     John Callarman also provides the following: "In February 2006, Jim Sellars, a historian specializing in Yankee prisoners sent from the American colonies to Canada, found documentation that Evan Henton was among the prisoners sent from the Indian camp in Ohio to Detroit and then to Montreal, because he knew some of the plans of the troops at Louisville and, compiler (John Callarman) speculates, had been convinced that the only way he could get back to Mary was to cooperate with the Redcoats."

     Further detail information on Evan Henton can be found in A History of Rockingham County, Virginia, by John W. Wayland and Old Settlers, by Sanford C. Cox. John Callarman and Robert A. Hinton also are excellant sources for Henton/Hinton family information.

     His will was probated on 4 February 1783 in Jefferson Co., Kentucky. From John Callarman notes:3 From the papers Nancy Wells supplied to the Kentucky Historical Society Library:
     "At a court held for Jefferson County on the 4th February, 1783, administration of the estate of Evan Henton, deceased, was granted to Mary Henton, his widow, who entered into Bond agreeable to law in that case made and provided."
     On Volume 3, page 179 of the Filson Club Quarterly, David Lee Callarman found:
     "A just & true Inventory & appraisement of the goods, and chattels to us produced by the administrator of the estate of Evan Hinton, deceased, taken at Clark's Station in Lincoln County, by us, the underwritten subscribers, being appointed appraisers (Page 63) by order of the Court of Jefferson County, and duly sworn May 24th, 1783.
     "1 Dutch oven 30 shillings, 1 pot 24 shillings, 1 frying pan 6 shillings, total 3 pounds; two puter basins 15 shillings, 3 Do plates and 4 spoons, 15 shillings, total 1 pound, 10 shillings; 1 puter tankard 3 shillings, wheel irons & buckett 4 shillings, total 7 shillings; 1 old bed quilt and Blankett, total 10 shillings; 1 Bed Bolster & pillow, total 2 pounds, 10 shillings; 1 pepper box & fork, 2 shillings, 1 hand saw 12 shillings, total 14 shillings; 1 Certificate from the Commissioners, total 4 pounds 5 shillings; 1 cow & calf 50 shillings, 1 testament 6 shillings, total 2 pounds 16 shillings; and A Large Smith's Vice, total 2 pounds, 10 shillings. Overall total 18 pounds, 2 shillings."
     Two more papers copied by Nancy Wells from the originals in the possession of Miss Sallie Henton in 1926 pertain to the estate sale.
     The first, dated June ye 12th, 1784, reads: "The articles of this sale is such that the highest bider is to be ye buyer. All articles under ten shillings is to be ready money. All above, three months credit with approved security. All buyers not being able to give sufficient security shall pay 5 of 6 t on Demand or goods return to the cryer."
     The sale bill, dated June 14th, 1784, discloses that Mary Henton bought all but three items, the Dutch oven for 15 shillings, the pott for 10 shillings, the testament for 3 shillings, 2 pence; the two pewter plates for 8 shillings, 6 pence; a pewter "kam", 4 spoons & forks for 3 shillings; a feather bed for 1 pound, 4 shillings; a blanket & bed quilt for 5 shillings; and piggins wheel iron & knife for 7 shillings. Jno. Kelley bought 4 pewter plates for 5 shillings, 6 pence; and Jas. Huse bought a frying pan for 2 pounds and one vice tone hand saw for 7 shillings, 6 pence.

     The following information is from the Henton notes provided by John Callarman.

     "In Lyman Chalkley's "Records of Augusta Coutny, Virginia, 1745-1800, Volume I, we find, under "District Court Judgments," this account of William Henton's run-in with the law:

     Commonwealth vs. Wm. Hinton, Martin Gryder, John Gryder. -- Augusta Sec. -- This day David Harned and John Woens, before me, that on Wednesday, the 13th of this instant, William Hinton came to the house of the said David Harned, with an armed force, and declared himself in the favor of the Crown of Great Britain and that General Howe might as well go home with his men, for he could raise men enough to subject the country and that he would do it yet; and also inquired for Captain Hite and Joseph Smith, and swore that if he could catch them, he would strip them and tie them to an apple tree and whip them until they would be willing to enlist into his service and swear to be true to him; and spoke very disrespectful of General Washington and of his troops in general. That the country belonged to the King and the King would keep it yet, and that he would go as Captain and raise better men than the country could; and that the above conversation was repeated sundry times, and further these deponents saith not as witness our hands this 16th day of August, 1777. (Signed) David Harned, John Owens. Sworn before me, Daniel Smith.

     "Sir-- I have received information by the deposition of David Harned, etc., that a certain William Hinton has openly appeared in defense of George the Third, King of Great Britain, and in open violation against the United States of America, and has enlisted men in behalf of the King of Great Britain. These are therefore to request you, in the name of the Commonwealth, to raise any number of volunteers or as many as you will think necessary, without the loss of time. You are to march your men to Smith's to apprehend the said William Hinton and all his abettors and all those concerned in behalf of the said King and in violation against the Commonwealth. You are to bring them to Staunton and have them secured under a proper guard until proper proceedings can be had on them, and I expect they will receiver their proper reward of their deserts. You are to be reinforced by Capt. David Bell, Thomas Hewit, Capt. William Anderson, Captain Hopkins and Capt. Daniel Smith. Herein fail not. Given under my hand this 19th August, 1777. (Signed) Abraham Smith. To Capt. Patrick Buckhanon. Endorsed "By virtue of the within order, I have taken Martin Groeder and Henry Groeder, and John Groeder, William Hinton, Peter Hinton, and Elisha Nox, and brought them before Sampson Mathews, William Bowyer and Alexander St. Clair.
     (Signed) Patrick Buchanan. August 21, 1777.

     "Augusta County, Sec. -- To the sheriff or gaolor of the County ....... We send you herewith the bodies of William Hinton, Martin Groeder and John Groeder, taken and brought .... by warrant ... of Abraham Smith, Esq., County Lieutenant, upon information made upon oath before Daniel Smith, Esq;, by David Hernot and John Owens of being guilty of a breach or coming under the Act of Assembly made in this state for punishing certain offenses and after learning sundry evidences, vis...... we wer of the opinion that said William Hinton, Jr., Martin Groeder and John Groeder have been guilty of a breach of the Act aforesaid. You are therefore required to receive them .... until they shal from thence be discharged by order of the Justices of our said Court to be held on the Third Tuesday in September next, and this shall be your warrant. Given under our hands and seals this 23rd day of August, 1777. (Signed) Sampson Mathews (seal), William Bowyer (seal), Alexander Sinclair (Seal).

     "Spa for witnesses for defence, viz.... Verdict of guilty vs. William Hinton, fined 400 pounds and four years' imprisonment.

     "On back of the papers is an abstract of the evidence in handwriting of the clerk, evidently jotted down for his own amusement

     "Joseph Smith -- reputed Tory and drinking the king's health. Capt. Hite intended to take him and desired Smith to go with him. Went to Hinton's mill. Found and seized him. Resisted. Got away. Stoned them. called to them and told them, you will all be hanged yet. Followed them. With stones. Two recruits. Offered them ye money (?) and would not go with d---- scoundrel. Willing to go before. Several suspected Tories. Johnson, whom Hinton called out to assist him and damned him for not complying with his sworn word. A barbecue that night when open war was to be declared.

     "Arnet, Owens and Alderson. -- Hinton followed Hite and Smith. Where the d-----d Tory Catchers. If here I would tie to apple tree and whip them till I made them enlist in my service. I am Tory. The King has a right to the country and shall have it. Have no occasion to come here, for I can raise men enough to take the country and I will do it, for I am Captain of better men than they. Whipped two of their officers today and served them in ye same manner as how did Washington. See Howe drive them as stray sheep.

     "Mrs. Scothern -- Had sworn two into his service. Who are they? Phillips and Williams, who had before entered into our service. (Proved by Alderson).

     "Bright -- Damned him for giving information to take up Tories and turned his pistol towards him.

     "Burgess -- Last fall heard him declare himself a King's man, and that the King had a right to the country. Heard some good news. What it was -- Howe driving General Washington through the Jersey. Do you call that good news? Yes."

     Chalkely cited Augusta County Order Book No. XVI, dated September 18, 1777, "(237) William Hinton, same, 400 pounds and four years' imprisonment."

     Peter Henton was born circa 1762 in Berks Co., Pennsylvania.1,2 He married Mary Scothorn, daughter of Joseph Scothorn and Elizabeth Brown, on 7 January 1788 in Rockingham Co., Virginia.1 Peter died before 13 June 1811 in Rockingham Co., Virginia.2 Conflicting evidence states that he died circa 1813 in Rockingham Co., Virginia.1

     The children of Peter Henton and Mary Polly Scothorn are reported as heirs in a Land Grant. The text of that Land Grant is transcribed as follows:

To: John Henton & Others, 29 Acres, Rockingham County

"Wilson Cary Nicholas Esq., Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia: To all to whom these presents shall come, greeting: know ye, that in conformity with a survey, made the 26th of November, 1813, by virtue of a Land Office Treasury warrant, issued the 13th of June, 1811; No. 4752; there is granted by this said Commonwealth, unto John Henton, Evan Henton, Thomas Henton, Peter Henton, Joseph Henton, William Henton, Phoebe Henton, Jesse Henton, David Henton, and Moses Henton, heirs of Peter Henton, deceased, a certain tract or parcel of land, containing 29 acres, situate in the County of Rockingham, and bounded as followeth, to wit: Beginning at a black oak stump, near a white walnut, corner to John Harrison's 70 acre tract of patented land thence with lines thereof, north forty eight degrees west, one hundred and forty poles to a stake, near the house in which the said Peter Henton, deceased, formerly lived, north fifty degrees, east thirty eight poles to a stake in Stovers line, thence with his lines south fifty one degrees west, fifty six poles to a stake by a stump, claimed by Stover as a corner of his land, north fifty one degrees west , sixteen poles to a fallen pine; south fifty seven degrees west, thirty poles to a black oak on Stover's line; thence with lines of James Henton's survey; south fifty one degrees east, ninety two poles to a small hickory; south eighty three degrees east, sixty poles to stake in a field; south fifty three degrees east twenty six poles to a black oak log, by where two hickories formerly stood; and thence south fifty degrees east, twelve poles to the beginning with its appurtenances: To have and to hold, the said tract or parcel of land, with its appurtenances, to the said John Henton, Evan Henton, Thomas Henton, Peter Henton, Joseph Henton, William Henton, Phoebe Henton, Jesse Henton, David Henton, and Moses Henton, heirs of Peter Henton, deceased, and their heirs forever. In witness whereof, the said Wilson Cary Nicholas, Esquire, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia hath hereunto set his hand and causes the lesser seal of the said Commonwealth to be affixed at Richmond, on the tenth day of April, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and fifteen, and of the Commonwealth the thirty ninth. (Signed:) W. C. Nicholas"

     Until proven otherwise, we will presume that Peter Henton and Mary Polly Scothorn had 10 children - in the same order of birth, as their names are shown in this Land Grant document.

     According to the Huffman research ("The Ups and Downs of a Confederate Soldier)", Peter Hinton purchased his first land in Rockingham County in 1804. He lived with his mother before he purchased this property. Quoting from Huffman: "These early Rockingham Hintons were staunch Baptists. I found them of record in early Baptist records. John Alderson, prominent Baptist clergyman, appears frequently on their legal papers and they intermarried with Baptist families of the section. John Alderson's first church was on Linville Creek (then Augusta County) and they also owned lands on that creek and were communicants of his church. There was also a Baptist Colony and a Baptist Church on Smith Creek in Rockingham County to which Peter Hinton no doubt belonged."

     From Monroe Co. (WVA) Deed Book 1 (1799-1805): ITEM Entry 343-44: 15 Oct 1803; Thomas HINTON and wife Sarah HINTON to Peter HINTON of Rockingham Co Va, 145 acres for six shillings on Indian Draft/Indian Creek adj Valentine COOK and William MADDY.

     From Monroe Co. (WVA) Deed Book 1 (1799-1805): ITEM Entry 344-45: 15 Oct 1803; Thomas HINTON and wife Sarah HINTON to Peter HINTON of Rockingham Co Va, 39 acres for six shillings on Indian Draft/Indian Creek adj Samuel ALLEN and Daniel SHEPHERD.

     These land records show that Thomas Hinton, brother of Peter Hinton, was likely a resident of Monroe County, prior to 1803 (in fact, some of the records which have been attributed to Thomas, son of Peter, may have been Thomas, brother of Peter!?).

     Record from Monroe Co (WVA) Deed Book B (1805-1809): 341-42 : 1806 Jacob COOK and wife Isabella COOK of Monroe Co. to Peter HINTON of Rockingham Co Va 36 acres for $1.00 on Indian Creek on the Indian Draft adj FISHER and said HINTON.

     A Rockingham County "Fee Book" contained the following entry: "26 Nov 1813 Heirs of Peter HENTON dec'd. John HENTON, Evan HENTON, Thomas HENTON, Peter HENTON, Jesse HENTON, David HENTON, Moses HENTON regarding 20 acres of land, part of 1000a warranted to Alex. HERRING on Smiths Creek 13 Jun 1811." This record indicates that Peter Henton had seven living (male) heirs in Nov, 1813 (the only son not mentioned was Joseph?).

From "The James David Hinton Family Website" - May 2002:

     "Have we discovered a familial link between Peter Henton and "Rockingham John" Hinton? Cousin John Callarman has contributed the following legal records, from his Rockingham County research files:

     "Actually, I think Rockingham John's birthdate probably should be 1782, though Peter and Mary Scothorn did not marry until 1788. (Some Henton sources have shown that marriage as 1780.) But I think the explanation lies on Page 239 (27 November 1782) of the Rockingham County Minute Book, 1778-1792, transcribed by Constance A. Levinson and Louise C. Levinson, that reports:

     ""Know all men by these presents that we, Peter Hinton, Brewer Reeves, John Armentrout, Ingle Bowyer, Nathaniel Harrison and Gideon Harrison, do owe and acknowledge themselves to stand justly indebted unto Benjamin Harrison, Esqr., Governor of the State of Virginia, in the full sum of one hundred pounds that is fifty pounds by the said Peter Hinton and the other sum of ten pounds by said securities each to be paid unto the said Governor or his successors in office. Now if the said Peter Hinton shall endemnify and hereafter keep harmless the Parish of Rockingham in respect of a base born child begotten by the said Peter Hinton on the body of Eleanor Needham, then the above obligation to be void, else to stand and remain in full force and effect. Acknowledged in the presence of the court.""

     From other records of Rockingham County, we suspect that 100 pounds was a 'princely sum' in 1782 (perhaps not quite a King's Ransom - but a princely sum, none-the-less). For example, from "The Mills of Rockingham County", we have an appraisal of William Henton's Mill at 75 pounds (records indicate that this William Henton was a brother of Peter Henton).

     At this time, we do not know whether the 'out-of-wedlock' child was a boy or a girl. But a reasonable 'working hypothesis', is that the child of Peter Henton and Eleanor Needham was none other than "Rockingham John" Hinton.1 "
