Quoting from the William Fitgerald/Jarrell Family by Mabel Grimes Huck

William Fitzgerald's Revolutionary War Pension application states that
he enlisted as a private in Newtown, Chester, Maryland (Newton
Township, Chester county was in the part of Pennsylvania that was
claimed by Maryland until the Mason and the Dixon survey was completed
in 1767. Since he was 74 years old when he applied for the pension he
may have been thinking of those years before Mason-Dixon finalized the
Pennsylvania-Maryland border dispute).

William says he joined the 2nd regiment of the Maryland state troops ,
becoming a substitute for Risdom Bosman. He was in the battle of
Hobkirk's Hill, the siege of Ninety-Six, and Eutaw Springs., finally
being stationed on James Island until the war ended. Apparently his
only battle injury was an elbow wound.

When he came to Guilford county North Carolina is unknown but he
bought 30 acres from John Thompson in Guilford county on 6 Mar 1788.
His name is given as Wm. Fitz Garrel, planter and his land was on the
waters of South Buffalo, bordering Adam Lackey and Jesse Weatherly.

The 1790 census of Guilford county show Wm, Fitzgeral with one white
male over 16, one white male under 16, and two white females. On 21
Jun 1791 Wm. Fitzgeral sold his 30 acres back to John Thompson
(Guilford deeds 5:504). The records do not show him receiving any
other land until 17 Dec 1794, when William Jarrell was granted 77
acres on the waters of Brushy Fork by the State of North Carolina.

In a deed dated 5 march 1823 William F. Jarrell sold 51 acres on the
waters of Brushy Fork to Salathiel Lamb (Guilford Deeds 17:112).

On 7 dec 1833 William sold 187 acres on the waters of the Allemance to
Christopher Fields (Guilford Deeds 23:274). About 1834, William and
2nd wife, Sarah, moved to Indiana along with William's son and
daughter-in-law Manliff and Rachael. Charlotte, John, James, Absalom,
Anne, and perhaps other children's of Williams's stayed in Guilford
and Randolph counties, North Carolina.

His widow Sarah renounced her right to administer his estate on 9 May
1848 and on the same day Thomas Butt, George W. Monks, and Josiah
Hutchinson entered in bond as sureties, in regard to William's estate.

According to the History of Randolph County Indiana, Wm. Fitzjerrel
was 97 at the time of the 1840 census, which asked if any
Revolutionary War Pensioners were living in this household. This
would have put his birth date about 1743. William was living in
Washington Township at this time. The history goes on to say that he
lived to 105 although this may be slightly exaggerated.

Following the readings for the Mount Zion Cemetery is the following

W. F. Fitzgerald, 105 yrs old, was killed by falling from a load of
oats he had loaded himself. He was strong and sprightly, though so
old, and except for this accident, might have survived for years.

If you can add, subtract, delete, change any of the above data please
advise. If you have any questions about the data feel free to ask!
