REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIER.
He is a DAR certified Revolutionary patriot (Vol. 9, p. 115, Folio 4, Revolutionary Services, North Carolina State Archives) "for hauling supplies, housing the militia and supplying meat for the Army." That "he was too old to serve in the Army," as has been said, is not necessarily true. For various reasons, many who were not too old did not go; but if he had been born before 1725 he would have been too old. I would guess he
was well into his eighties in January 1815 and that he died before his son Isaac went to South Carolina in 1816.
Elisha was twenty-seven and his first child was on the way when Jesse gave him land on Panther Creek for "love, good will and natural affection." I believe this tended to be a family pattern, possibly started by John of Chowan. When a young person showed signs of being ready, the parents tried to get him established. There are many such deeds on record--notably among the Joseph of Wayne family.
15 January 1806 Jesse Pipkin sold to Stewart Pipkin a slave boy. Jesse was listed as "being of ... unreadable .. ." but some think "Lincoln County, North Carolina."
Recorded Smith County, Tennessee, WillBk. 5, pg. 172 - (1805-1809) Witnessed: Joel Hines and Lewis Pipkin.
The last transaction of Jesse Pipkin was the grant he made to Arthur Branch 23 January 1815. Clarissa Branch was born that year, daughter of Arthur Branch and Sarah Keathley, born 1797. Sarah was the daughter of Mark and Elizabeth Pipkin Keathley. By the old rule of thumb, Elizabeth would have been born about 1776 and could have been one of the females in the 1790 census of Jesss. Nearby was a Samuel Tanner. In 1785 Tanner had sold to Jesse adjacent to Isaac Hines and the land that Jesse granted Archelaus in 1803 had once been Tanner land. In 1788 Isaac Hines "for love and affection" granted to Lewis Hines "a hundred acres in New Hanover County" a note on the abstract that I have says "now Duplin County." I don't know what this means. Duplin was formed 1750. But I don't think Lewis was as far away as New Hanover sounds.
Jesse sold land to Margaret Pipkin/Benton (John Pipkin III 1677-1745 1/2 Sister who married Frances Benton.)
