The freeholders of Mecklenburg County (on 08 APR 1776 and 14 APR 1777) were polled to elect two delegates to serve in the Revolutionary Convention, which was later called the General Assembly. In the "Virginia Genealogist, Volume 26," there is an article listing the names of the freeholders and how they voted. The candidates for delegate were Col. Robert Munford, Mr. Henry Delony, Mr. Joseph Speed, and Col. Bennett Goode. The author of this article makes a strong case that by casting their votes, these men were violating British law and thus acting as Revolutionary Patriots and should thus be eligible for descendants to claim as a Revolutionary patriot for the purpose of membership in DAR or SAR.

Elizabeth Ann CrowderI wish I knew who wrote this originally. It is a wonderful article about Elizabeth Crowder.

 

Elizabeth Ann was born near Memphis, Tennessee in 1837 to John W. and Elizabeth.  Elizabeth died while her daughter was very young.  I am not sure if Elizabeth and her sister, Isabella, are full or half sisters, but the rest of the Crowder children are the offspring of her stepmother, Lucy Jane.  Elizabeth married Robert Silas White July 26, 1860.  He was a Presbyterian singing teacher, according to the family notes.  He was drafted into the 34th MS Infantry, Co. B (Tippah Rebels) on May 8, 1862 and also served with the 2nd Regiment, Co. C (Davidson's) MS Infantry.  Aunt Betty White Thomas wrote "While in one of the battles, he was wounded.  A little Testament saved his life. A bullet hit the testament, cut ever leaf in it.  The testament caused the bullet to glance."  He died about 1868 as a result of that wound.

Patricia Yaw compiled a great deal of research on the Crowder name for her book, The Harness Makers, first Crowders in America. Her research indicates that the Crowders came from the same general area of England during the years 1668 to 1700 as they worked on the ships which came to and from America. She notes that Crowder is a corruption of the surname Carruthers.

The book lists John Wagnon Crowder as a wagon maker of 1785
