Josiah Tanner

M, b. 10 October 1754, d. 1 November 1807
Josiah Tanner - Revolutionary War Patriot - Revolutionary ancestors of the Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution
     Josiah Tanner was born on 10 October 1754 at Mecklenburg, Virginia.1 He was the son of Lewis Tanner and Margaret Haskins. Josiah Tanner married Martha Wooten, daughter of Samuel Wooten and Elizabeth Sarah Callaway, on 1 December 1771 at Mecklenburg, Virginia, married at the home of a Colonel Rumford, in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, by the Rev. Parson Sample.2 Josiah Tanner died on 1 November 1807 at Henry, Oldham, Kentucky, at age 53.3 He was buried on 4 November 1807 at Henry, Oldham, Kentucky.
     Josiah was a disabled veteran of the Revolutionary war. His right elbow was hit by a musket ball and he was out of action for approximately six months. He reentered the war in time for the final push in South Carolina at Cowpens which preceded Yorktown by a few days. JOSIAH TANNER- Life Sketches from Records, Historical and Tradition - In tracing our branch of the Tanner family the writer has not been able to go any further back than to the days and life of Lewis Tanner, who settled in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, not far from 1730 or 1740, or something near one-hundred-and-sixty-years ago. It is shown by the records that his deed for his homestead was recorded in 1750, and this property is still held by his continuous descendants, at the present time owned by Melville Tanner, of Lacross, Mecklinburg County, Virginia: The name of Lewis Tanner's wife before marriage was Margaret Haskins, she having a brother named Creed, and these two names -- Haskins and Creed, are often found in the later families, following Lewis and Margaret Tanner. To this patriarchal pair were born two sons, named Thomas and Josiah. Thomas married Mollie Evans, and they had three sons, named Thomas, Ludwell and David. This Thomas was the grandfather of Wm. M. Tanner, and Ludwell was the grandfather of Mary H. Tanner, Wm. M. Tanner's wife. See T.T.G's. p.45. This family I have had the pleasure of visiting, and have great respect for them as relatives, and enjoy their kind friendship. Josiah Tanner, second son of Lewis Tanner, as given by tradition, was seventeen years old when he married Martha Wootten, December 1st, 1771. It is not known at this time whether or not Josiah Tanner had any sisters. After their marriage they continued in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, about eight years; they then moved to and located in South Carolina in the year 1779, on the French Broad River, near Cherokee Ford. In and around this part of the country at this time was a bitter contest between the citizens, and S. C. line and partisan soldiers on the one side, and British and Tories on the other. It will be in order now to take up the application for pension of Martha (Tanner) Lemasters and the evidence offered for the establishing of her claim to pension. These pension papers furnish an almost complete life history of Josiah Tanner from the time of his marriage until his death. These papers are from the Pension Department at Washington, and from the Secretary of State's office, Columbia, South Carolina. This application for pension was made before the Probate Judge of Johnson County, Indiana, August 14th, 1843, and sets forth as follows: That she was 87 years old and that she was married to Josiah Tanner, in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, December 1st, 1771, that her said husband was a Lieutenant in Capt. Cradra McBee's Company of Colonel Williams' Regiment, (Note, afterward Colonel Robuck's Regiment, after Battle of King's Mountain) of South Carolina troops, in the Revolutionary War; that he left home in May, 1780, wounded in the arm at the battle of King's Mountain in October of that year; came home to get his wound cured, returned to the army in the spring Of 1781, and returned finally to his home in the fall of that year -- having been in the service, including the time he was at home on account of his wound, about eighteen months. That he was a pensioner until 1796, while in South Carolina. On the reports of the Comptroller General of South Carolina, one of them dated at Columbia, S. C., October 3rd, 1843, to the effect that on October 5th, 1785, a warrant was issued for the payment of a horse lost in the service for £21. 8s. 6d and £1. 9s. 11d, interest; and on December 9, 1785, another warrant for £76. 3s. 6d; and interest for £5. 6s. 7d for 237 days duty, from June 18, 1780, to July 1st, 1781, "is a Lieutenant of horse" in Capt. Cradra McBee's Company, Colonel Robuck's Regiment of the South Carolina line. Sally Crittenden, further testified, August 14th, 1843, that she was a daughter of Josiah Tanner; that she had often heard her father and mother relate that they were married at the home of a Colonel Rumford, in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, by the Rev. Parson Sample, whom she had seen and heard preach often. That she remembers well of her father going with a letter from General Morgan to Colonel Washington at Charlottesville, North Carolina, to come and meet him at the Cow Pens, and that he (her father) came by home and told her mother where he was going and what for. Mrs. Crittenden further testified that she remembered well, that when her father came home with his wounded "right arm" he had no clothes for a change to put on, for the Tories had plundered their house while he was away. Mrs. Crittenden also testified that she had heard her parents say, that they had no license for their marriage, but that the vows were published three times in the church, (and marriage as before stated.) The Comptroller General of South Carolina in February, 1844, further stated, that Josiah Tanner received his pension for twelve years from the General Government; that it was necessary his papers should be authenticated annually, and that he should receive his money in Charleston, which was then the location of the Commissioner of Pensions for the General Government. It will be seen in Martha Lemaster's application for pension that Josiah Tanner was a pensioner until 1796, while in South Carolina. The above two statements in regard to Josiah Tanner's pension, will verify the tradition of the date of his emigrating to Kentucky as stated in the T.T.G.'s. This tradition came from my mother Mary (Tanner) Tracy and her declaration was, "I was almost seven years old when we left South Carolina." This indicates that they arrived in Kentucky in the fall of that year, she being seven years old in December following, making it the year 1796. Another bit of tradition may be worth relating, happening in the mountains after leaving South Carolina; this also from my mother. She says: "I was riding down the mountain on a horse behind my brother, the horse fell and threw both of us, and I started to fall over the side of the mountain, my father being in sight, but too far off to be of any assistance. Turned his back on me, not wanting to see me dashed to death on the rocks below; but luckily I caught hold of a little bush and held on with a scream until assistance arrived and lifted me from my perilous situation." Again from mother, she says: "after my father was well of the woundin his elbow it was always very stiff in the joint, so much so that he had a knife made with a blade eighteen inches long to use while eating, that he might reach his mouth with that arm." Josiah Tanner now stands before us a patriot of Revolutionary times, of glorious deeds; he had done his work for his country; peace in hand, he turns his attention to his increasing family, their wants are many, his services for his country are unpaid. After dearly bought peace had come, we find him looking after his dues from his country, he is measurably helpless for making a living by his manual labor. His efforts for his dues were successful. In 1785, five years after being disabled, he received pay for horse lost in action and payment for services while in the army; also at this time he was further awarded by being awarded a pension to help him along with his infirmity. There is no other history or tradition to write, for the ten or eleven years, when we find him on his way over the mountains to the "Dark and Bloody Ground"; -- the wilderness of Kentucky, and here he tarried for the remainder of his year, where he had a dry goods and grocery business at Bethlehem on the Ohio River. Here for a few years he watched his children grow up to men and women (at least the greater part), choosing their life mates and passing to their own homes. At this time the bugle sounded "tattoo" and "lights out." This great lover of his country passed to the great beyond, November 1st., 1807. Love to his memory. March 6, 1907. M. J. TRACY.

This March 6th, 1908. M.J. TRACY. Excerpt from "Historical Sketches of the Tracy and Tanner Families":
Josiah Tanner, married Martha Wootten, in 1771. They had seventeen children. They were living in South Carolina when he served as a lieutenant in the Revolutionary War. The family migrated to Kentucky in 1796. He died at Bethlehem, Kentucky, in 1807. Margaret Tanner married 2) Abraham Lemasters in 1826. They migrated Johnson County, Indiana, in 1834. She died at age 96 in 1857 near Vernon, Indiana. Children lived in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. He served in the military at Revoluntionary Army; Lieutenant, Carolina, in May 1780; "Soon after marriage they located on the line of the Carolinas, possible in South Carolina, on the French Brood River, between Cowpens and King's Mt. Here, for the third time he enlisted in the military service of the Revolutionary Army, May 1780, in Capt. McBee's Co., of Col. Roebuck's regiment--enlisted for the period of 18 months and held the rank of Lieutenant in his company.

Following October, he was in King's Mountain Battle, as part of Col. James Williams' force, and was wounded through the right elbow in this battle. He returned to his home 12 miles away, and was nursed by his wife, who had the floor partly removed, so her husband could escape to the brush if suprised by the Tories. She guarded her wounded husband at night, seated in an arm chair with a loaded musket at her side."2 In 1781 From the Secretary of States Office, Columbia, South Carolina, a certificate of the services of Josiah Tanner in the Revolutionary Army: He was Lieutenant of Horse in the Militia of South Carolina and served two hundred and thirty seven days. He received pay at that time for such service, 'Seventy-six pounds, three shilling six and 3/4 pence and was no doubt mustered out for disability on account of the wound received at the battle of King's Mountain, as he had ten months of his enlistment to serve.
