In Memory of

Died Nov. 24th, 1840, aged 82 years,
6 mo. and 9 days.

Deceased was a soldier of the Revolution and was at the
battles of Germantown, Brandywine and Guilford
Courthouse, and was one of Washington’s life-
guard at Valley Forge and served his coun
try faithfully during the war.
Peace to the soldiers’ dust.

“The following account of him is copied from the Tuscaloosa Flag of the Union, December, 1840:

” ‘James McCrory was born May 15, 1758, at Larga, on the river Bann, in the county of Antrim, Ireland. He sailed from Belfast in 1775 when he was 17 years old and landed at Baltimore July 1st, in the same year. In 1776 he settled in Guilford County, N. C., and enlisted in the Continental army in the same year. He was at the battle of Brandywine, September 11, 1777, under General Washing-ton at the battle of Germantown, and wintered at Valley Forge in 1777-78. Subsequently he fought under General Greene at Guilford Court House, March 15, 1781, was in the battle of Eutaw Springs, and in the battle of Stono. He was with General Gates at his defeat at Camden and with General Morgan in the glorious victory at the Cowpens. For courage, good service and meritorious conduct he was promoted to the rank of ensign in the Life Guard of General Washington, and while acting in this capacity, he was taken prisoner and confined on board a prison ship for six months. He came to Alabama while it was yet a territory, and made his home at Tuscaloosa for the last twenty-five years of his life. This true patriot died November 24, 1840, at the age of eighty-two.’

“There is a list of North Carolina Continental ‘troops published in the N. C. Historical and Genealogical Register, on p. 424 of which we find the name of James McCrory, ensign in the Ninth regiment, under Col. John P. Williams, May 2, 1777. Thomas McCrory was a captain in the same regiment. The services of James McCrory are also stated in the proceedings of the 27th Congress, 2d Session, in the Senate, February 4th, 1842, report of the Committee on Revolutionary Claims :

” ‘James McCrory was a sergeant in Capt. Cook’s company of the 9th regiment, enlisted on the 15th day of April, 1776, for the term of three years; on the 2d day of May, 1777, he was promoted to the rank of ensign. In January 1778, the nine regiments which composed the line, being reduced – to three, the supernumerary officers were sent home, of which he was one. He then joined the nine months’ men and marched to the south and was at the battle of Stono, the 30th of June, 1779, and was at Gates’ defeat in August, 1780, and was taken prisoner on the 24th of February, 1781, by Tarleton’s dragoons and was kept prisoner four months at Wilmington and then paroled; and in November, 1782, he took prisoner Colonel Bryant, a British officer, and gave him up to a regular officer of the American army.’

“In spite of this array of gallant services the committee re-ported adversely because of some technicality; but as the old hero had then been dead two years he was probably not very deeply affected or disappointed by the decision.”-Mrs. P. H. Mell in Transactions of the Alabama Historical Society, Vol. iv, pp. 554-556.

“JACKSON COUNTY, ALA., JAN. 19, 1835.

“It is our unhappy lot to announce that another Revolutionary Hero has gone! COL. JoHN McCUTCHEN, who, in ‘the times that tried men’s souls,’ stood boldly forth in defense of the liberty and independence of his country, bidding defiance not only to oppression, but confronting the armed myrmidons of. the Tyrant, was on the 17th (inst.) in the eightieth year of his age, summoned to ‘another and a better world.’

“He engaged early in the Revolutionary conflict, was at the defense of Fort Moultrie, the battle at Eutaw Springs, and with a true patriotic zeal participated in all the perils and distress that so peculiarly characterized the unfeeling warfare, then waged throughout the Carolinas; nor did he retire until be had the satisfaction of beholding the independence of his country, for which he had so long and ardently struggled, permanently secured.

“Having devoted his youth to the service of his country in the field, in the maturity of manhood he engaged with those fearless and enterprising pioneers, who emigrating to the West, embarked in the arduous undertaking of reclaiming the fertile valley of the Tennessee from its then savage wilderness, and preparing it for the enjoyment of all the arts, luxuries and refinements of social life.

“He has ever been noted as a man of uncommon intellectual endowments-for the last forty years has been a professor of Christianity of the Baptist order, and been esteemed by all as a worthy example and an honor to his profession. Thus ripe in years and rich in the consciousness of having at two different periods of his life, rendered important services to his country, and in the consoling hopes of a glorious immortality, the veteran has departed, leaving his relatives and numerous friends to mourn his loss.

“On Monday the 19th inst., as the citizens of this vicinity had convened to pay the last honors to the deceased, on motion of Maj. John B. Stevens, they constituted themselves into a meeting, for the purpose of making a public manifestation of their grief, to acknowledge the services, and express the high regard they have ever entertained for the principles of their departed friend. Col. James Smith was called to the chair and Maj. John B. Stevens appointed secretary-when the followings resolutions were unanimously adopted, viz :

“Resolved, That, under a deep sense of the gratitude we owe to those sages and heroes who achieved our independence, we deem it a duty incumbent upon us, their sons, with a filial piety to pay every tribute of respect to their virtues and their valor, as the only remuneration in our power, for the manifold rights and privileges that we now enjoy.

“Resolved, That in the death of Col. John McCutchen, we have to lament the loss of one of that band of aged warriors, whose presence never fails to enliven our zeal in the cause of liberty and to remind us what it cost that in him we have lost a firm patriot, a worthy citizen, a pious Christian and an esteemed friend. And while we respectfully acknowledge his public services, stern integrity and private worth, we deeply sympathize with his widow and other members of his family in their bereavement.

“Resolved, That the above resolutions be signed by the Chairman and Secretary, and transmitted to the Democrat and Southern Advocate for publication.

“JAMES SMITH, Chairman.” “JOHN B. STEVEN’S, Secretary.”
