I am seeking information about John Canterbury, a veteran of the Revolutionary War (Revolutionary Pensioner File # R1667) who was the first chief judge of the circuit court in Cahawba County, later Bibb County, Alabama. The first record of his presiding over the court was in early 1818. Members of the jury panel included Zachariah Canterbury and Samuel Canterbury.

John Canterbury married Lydia Lindsey (b 1779), daughter of David Lindsey (1740-1842). Canterbury was appointed a "beat captain" in Cahawba County and was placed in command of 52 militiamen on June 2, 1818.

I am trying to determine the relationship of Zachariah Canterbury to John Canterbury. If you have information, please contact me direct at:
