In Reply to: Re: Zacharian CARWILE,VA, 1750 by Steve Carwile of 278

Does anyone know if the below is maybe a decent of one of the three that came over...? I have my decent all the way up to this Jacob Carwile, Sr. I am looking for his father...

Researching the pioneer settlers of Osage County has led to the identification of the following Revolutionary War ancestors. Descendants of these individuals able to document this relationship and service would be able to apply for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution or Sons of the American Revolution:

Jacob Carwile, b. c. 1751 Goochland Co.,VA, died Fall River, VA, wife Martha

There are many different versions of the origin of the Carwile family. The following is the main version that pertains to this tree.

Charles, William, and Jobob Carwile of English-Irish decent came to America from Ireland somewhere near 1800. Jacob settled in Campbell County Virginia. The family has not been traced before 1750, however Carwile is a variant of Carvile, Carvill, Carvell, Carwiles, etc.

Regardless of tradition, it is probably true that there were at least three men named Carwile, all probably born around 1750, living in Virginia and died before 1839. Jacob Carwile died sometime in the year 1837 and burried near Fall River, Virginia. A ceremony and a dedication marker was placed on Jacob Carwile's grave on April 2, 1988 by Mrs. Revely B. Carwile.
