- Nathan Byars was born in Granville County, North Carolina, Married his first wife in Orange County, entered the Revolutionary War from Caswell County, and lived after the war in Rutherford County, and afterwards removed to Spartanburg District, South Carolina, where he was deceased 18 Aug 1846, aged 97 years.
- REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN. From Pension Record No. W6223 that was allowed Nathan, December 31, 1844. Personally appeared before the Judge of the Court of ordinary for Spartanburg District, Nathan Byars a resident of District of Spartanburg and State of South Carolina, age about ninety-five years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefits of the Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832. Nathan was a . Inscribed on the roll of Charleston, South Carolina. (Pension) at the rate of twenty dollars per annum, to commence on the 4th day of March 1831 and ended the 18th of August 1846. Nathan said, His father (John) told him he (Nathan) was a small boy at the time of General Braddock defeat, (this was in the French and Indian War in 1755.) At the time of his entry into the service, he was a resident of Caswell County, NC and was drafted for a 3-months tour of duty, serving as a Private under Captain Cunningham and Captain Forbes (?) (Forker?) in the Regiment commanded by Col. Ramsey and Major Moore. He was drafted for two additional tours of duty and later volunteered for a three-months tour. He did not remember the dates of his services; however, his declaration for pension, indicated that he was in the service `at the time of the battle of Eutah Springs, Kings Mountain, and at the time of Gates' defeat', although he did not fight in any of those battles. During the various tours of duty, Private Byars was stationed principally at Hillsborough, and adjacent counties, and, during one tour, went out against the Indians' in the western part of the State.
- Nathan and Drucilla got a divorce. According to a Rutherford CO., NC book 25, page 174, Nathan was ordered by the court to pay Drucilla $50.00 cash. Thought to be a divorce. After the divorce of Nathan and Drucilla, in 1799, Drucilla went to live with her daughter Elizabeth Byars Watkins in or near McMinnvile, TN. She later went to live with her daughter Nancy Byars Walker. She lived there until her death in 1816. Nathan later married Delphy Logan on October 8, 1819 in Spartanburg District, S. C. by Rev. Joshua Richards. At least one, and possibly more, children were born of this marriage.
- Nathan Byars purchased 200 acres of land from James Webb on April 10,1783, located on Main Broad River in Rutherford County, NC. A few years later in 1795, part of this land was sold to Williams Dobbins..
- 14 Apr 1798 50 acres on both sides of the main waggon road from Island ford on main Broad River to High Shoals on Second Broad River and oin a branch of Floyds Creek10 May 1798 Nathen and Frances Alexander enter 400 acres on N side of main Broad River and both sides of te main road. 14 Jul 1801 addded 200 acres to his existing land. 15 Jan 1802 enters 150 acres on S side main Broad River on Suck Creek bordering his own land.
- Byars moved to that area now in Cherokee County, SC about 1822, and on April 5, 1826, received a South Carolina State grant for 394 acres of land, in Spartanburg District located on the headwaters of Island, Suck and Buck creeks, part of an original grant to James Steadman. This land included that tract that is now the Cowpens National Battleground. Part of this land was sold by Byars to James H. Ezell on November 16, 1840, and on January 6, 1886, James Ezell sold part of the land, but reserved one acre, where the Cowpens Battleground monument now stands, as belonging to the Washington Light Infantry Company of Charleston, S.C. The federal government later erected the present monument on the site. Nathan Byars died August 18th, 1846, at the age of 97 years, and his grave is located about 1/2 mile from the battleground monument, about 11 miles west of Gaffney, Cherokee County, SC.
- https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/byers/about/results This y-dna results rule out James Byars who was born about 1713 and died about 1792 (possible wives of Peggy Gentry and Rachel Matthews) of Hanover County, VA as Nathan's father. He is related in some way to William Byars c.1735-c.1794 Rutherford NC who married Sarah Doggett and William Byars c.1760-c.1819 who married Elizabeth Bedford and lived in Rutherford County, NC before moving to Spartanburg County, SC. Quite a few matches to Group B include the surnames "Parrish" and "Shattock.
- Nathan Byars owned which had previously been the site of the Revolutionary War battle of Cowpens, and would later become part of the Cowpens National Battlefield.
- Nathan took the State Oath of Allegiance on May 22, 1778 according to the Acts of the Assembly passed at New Bern the November 15, 1777 Wiiliam Byars took the oath at the same time.

- They sailed from Amsterdam on the ship Den Dolphyn. See details under son-in-law Barent Jacobsen Kool
- There are are 2 family stores indicating a French back ground for this family. Neither has been proven. Story one is 2 bothers who were French Huguenots, natives of Picardy, France, 22 miles west of the city of Amiens, fled from the religious persecutions in France in 1620 to Utrech, Holland. Between 1620 and 1630, they left Holland for the port of New York.. Another says Leendert Arentsen de Grau(w) was a member of one of the Walloon families who were the first settlers of New Amsterdam. The Wallons were a French speaking people from Belgium.
- It appears he worked a farm on shares the first year.
- Leenderdt received a land grant for a house and garden lying east of what is now Broadway [in New York City]. This lot was the fourth lot south of Wall Street. He sold this lot in 1651 to Lubbertus Van Dincklagen. He then bought a lot north of his former lot in 1656. This was the land that the governor deeded to his son-in-law, Barent Jacobsen Cool in May of 1668. Locating his house - In Stokes' "Iconography of Manhattan Island, "this house and lot is described in Vol. 2. p. 365 It was located in Block B, Lot 4.' 22 Sep 1645.

It appears Leendert is the first owner of this lot. He probably built the first house built there. Later there were two houses on this lot.
- LEENDERT'S BOUWERY NO.3 ON MANHATTAN ISLAND Bouwery is the Dutch word for farm. Bouwerie No. 3 was occupied by Peter Bylevelt from 20 Jul 1632, til Feb 1634 Director General William Kieft leased it to Leendert 18 May 1638, Leendert received a patent (meaning he bought it) for 39 mergens (78 acres) of land, which included his leased farm. in 1663 the land was sold to Peter Stuyvesant. This land became part of a large farm that Stuyvesant retired on after the English took over the city in 1664. Stuyvesant spent the remainder of his life on his farm of sixty-two acres outside the city, called the Great Bouwerie, beyond which stretched the woods and swamps of the village of Haarlem. A pear tree that he reputedly brought from the Netherlands in 1647 remained at the corner of Thirteenth Street and Third Avenue until 1867, bearing fruit almost to the last. His farm, called the “Bouwerij” – the seventeenth-century Dutch word for farm – was the source for the name of the Manhattan street The Bowery, and the chapel facing Bouwerie’s long approach road (now Stuyvesant Street) became St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery.. In part payment for the sale of this land Leendert received a cow. This tract is bounded, on the modern N.Y.C. plan, approximately as follows: Beginning at a point north of Delancey and west of Eldridge St., running thence north easterly to a point west of the intersection of Ave. 5 and East 6th St.; thence south easterly to a point in the block bounded by Aves.

- Immigrated before 1633 - possibly from Amsterdam, Netherlands, as a sailor in late 1632 on the ship Soutberg, which arrived in Apr 1633 with 140 soldiers.
- On 8 Jun 1633, Barent Jacobsen Kool and six others signed a treaty with the Sickename Indians for purchasing land on the Connecticut River. The cost was recorded as 27 rolls of cloth, 6 axes, 6 kettles, 18 knives, and other articles. This was done to halt English exploration of the land. Barent’s group also built a trading house called “The House of Good Hope” and fortified it with several cannons.
- Apparently, Barent Jacobsen Kool worked as a laborer “in the Weigh-house” and a porter “in the Public Store. [A weigh-house was a public building where goods were weighed. These houses were run by local authorities who would use them for the levying of taxes on goods transported through or sold within the city. Therefore, weigh houses would often be near a market square or town center. Weigh houses were especially common in Europe in the Netherlands, Germany, and Poland. A porter is either someone who sold beer, or someone who carried objects, such as beer barrels.] Barent’s family was one of the five families living, June 8, 1633, on Bridge Street in New Amsterdam.
- Barent [Jacobsen Kool] returned to Amsterdam by 16 Nov 1635. At that time, he and a gold wiremaker named Jacob Hanssen lodged a complaint about withholding pay from officers of the [Dutch] West India Company returning to Amsterdam on the ship Eendracht against Lubbert van Dincklagen, the former sheriff of New Netherland. Van Dincklagen said it was part of a dispute with the director general of the colony, Wouter van Twiller.
- In 1637, Barent Jacobsen Kool married Marritje Leenderts De Grauw, probably in Amsterdam.
- Barent sailed on the ship Den Dolphyn [from Amsterdam, Holland] to New Amsterdam, in early 1638 [another record gives the date as 1637]with his father-in-law, Leendert Arentsen DeGrauw. It is presumed that his wife and her brothers and sisters were also on board. On 19 Apr 1638, the crew of the Den Dolphyn made a formal complaint to the provincial secretary about how the ship leaked during the voyage and that the captain had not provided enough food for the passengers. Barent and DeGrauw testified that several children belonging to Jan Schepmoes and his wife didn’t receive enough food. More details of the case against the crew of the ship is detailed in “New York Historical Manuscripts Dutch” by Arnold J. E. Van Laer (Vol. 2, Item 139g) when the case was continued during town minutes from 1645.
- On 13 Apr 1654, Barent [Jacobsen Kool] became a wine and beer carrier for the Dutch West India Company [in New Amsterdam]. He watched the company warehouse and was appointed by the New Amsterdam burgomasters as an exciseman [an exciseman was a government agent whose function was to collect excise, or taxes, and prevent smuggling]. He, along with Joost Goderus, boarded ships [which had just arrived] in New Amsterdam, searched their contents, and levied duty [or, taxes] on the goods they found. On 21 Sep 1663, Barent was appointed as a public porter and was elected foreman (Elder of the Beer Porters) on 17 Jul 1665.”(*1-1) In 1665, Barent was listed as living on Bridge Street in New Amsterdam.
- After the surrender of New Amsterdam to the English in September 1664, Barent took an oath of allegiance to the king of Great Britain. Barent and his wife, Marritje Leenderts De Grauw Kool and children, Jacob, Leendert, and Simon, lived in a house that was owned by the Dutch West India Company. This house was on Brough (Bridge) Street. In 1668, the governor conferred title of Leendert Arentsen De Grauw’s land to his son-in-law, Barent Jacobsen Kool. This lot was on Broadway, just south of Wall Street across from the south yard of Trinity Church” in New York City, New York.

- They moved to New Amsterdam (New York City) in 1667, where Jacob Barentsen Kool became a “porter in the Weigh house” and a “beer and wine carrier” like his father, Barent Jacobsen Kool. By 1689, Jacob Barentsen Kool and his wife Marritje Sijmons Kool, had returned to Ulster County, New York, where Jacob took an oath of allegiance.

- Jan Verbeeck Van Kuykendall
- Everet Wendels Van Kuykendall
- Styntie Van Kuykendall
- Luur Jacobsen Van Kuykendall
- Urbanus Luyersen m. Janntje Claes
- The earliest record mentioning Jacob was his marriage banns (intentions) to "Stinjntje Douwes" which was recorded at Amsterdam, Holland on August 28, 1638. Dominie (clergyman) Wilhem Tzwingenburge married Jacob & Stijntie at the Nooderkerk (North Church) in the Jordann District of Amsterdam. At that time Jacob lived on Gasthersstraat (Near the Remjbrandt residence) and Stijntie lived on Anjellersstraat not far from the Old Nooderkirk.
- Jacob Luyersen, his wife Styntie Douwes, his brother Urbanus Luyersen, and Urbanus' wife Janntje Claes came to New Netherlands in 1646 arrived in Fort Orange,
New Netherlands (now Albany, New York) on the ship Princess owned by the Dutch West India Company. Since 1629 this company had set up patroonships whereby wealthy Dutch could obtain huge tracts of land if they successfully colonized the area. One such patroon was Kiliaen Van Rensselaer whose holdings included most of present-day Albany, Columbia, and Rensselaer counties. Rensselaer had his business office in Amsterdam but his home was in the Gelderland province from which the Luersens came, so it is likely that Rensselaer personally recruited the brothers (Jacob & Urbanus) and gave them land leases to ensure that they would become permanent settlers. Rensselaer's patroonship is mentioned as the only one that lasted into the 1700's.
- Jacob and his brother Urbanus (with wife Jannetie Claes Boanes) came to America to work for Rensselaer, possibly as mechanics however, Jacob Luersen is specifically mentioned as an officer. New York Historical Manuscripts contains a September 6, 1641 declaration of officers of the ship The Angel Gabriel who urged the captain to head for New Netherlands because of the disabled condition of their ship, signed by Jacob Luersen as Chief Boastswain. Another account dated January 1, 1648, tells of a complaint filed against Roulaf Cornelius who inflicted five wounds on Corporal Jacob Luersen as the Corporal was trying to separate Cornelius and Casper Steinmetsel during a quarrel. Jacob, like other Dutch settlers, was granted a lot in Beverwyck near Fort Orange on October 25, 1653. Records show that he built a house and had a garden there until his death on April 29, 1655.
- Jacob was a corporal in the military at Fort Amsterdam. By 1647 Jacob was no longer in the military. Urbanus was a mason and he and Jacob spent some time in the employee of the General Privileged West India Company of the Chamber of Amsterdam.
- He was a farmer and traded furs with the Indians.
- The origin of the Kuykendall name is Dutch. Genealogists such as Dr.
George Benson Kuykendall author of ``History of the Kuykendall Family''
(1919), have traced the name to an area near Wageningen overlooking the
Drawing from sources such as the Archives of the State of New York, the
Holland Society, and records from 17th century Holland, Dr. Kuykendall
explains that the name Kuykendall was not used as a surname in the modern
sense until our Dutch ancestors had been in this country over fifty years.
During the 17th century in Holland, only people of great prominence or
social position used the family name as we do today; instead, they preferred
the father's given name with the suffix ``sen'' attached. For example, our
ancestor who immigrated from Holland to Fort Orange, New York, was
called Jacob Luursen because his father was named Luur. Consequently, the
name of Jacob's son was written as Luur Jacobsen in Dutch Reform Church
records in 1650.
- When he arrived in the New World in 1640, Jacob signed his full name as
Jacob Luursen Van Wageningen, the word ``van'' meaning ``from,'' thus
establishing that he was from Wageningen, Holland, although some
genealogists believe he was actually born in Land Van Kuyk, a county about
12 miles south of Wageningen. This area, probably known at the time as
Kijk-in-t-dal, lies on a high bank above the Rhine river and it said to have a
beautiful view of the Rhine valley. ``Kijk'' is an old Dutch word for ``view''
and it is pronounced as if it were spelled ``Kuyk'' or ``Kike.'' Mr. Van Laar,
a New York State Archivist in 1919, maintained that in the Dutch dialect of
the Wageningen area, ``Kijkinstdal'' may have been spelled ``Kuykendall'' or
``Kuukendal.'' Other genealogists familiar with Dutch names support this
- Our first American-born ancestor, Luur Jacobsen, was also the first to use
the surname ``Van Kuykendall.'' My sources say that he added the name
when he reached the age of 21, according to Dutch custom. However, he did
not use ``Van Kuykendall'' except for some official documents such as
baptism records of his children. From this point on, however, Luur
Jacobsen's children used the surname ``Van Kuykendall'' as a last name,
probably due to the influence of English customs after New Netherland
became New York under British control in 1664. Luur's son Matthew is listed
as ``Mattheus Van Kuykendaal'' in marriage records dated April 3, 1715.
Also, another son named Cornelius appears to have dropped the Dutch
``Van'' at some point as he moved into Minisink County in what is now New
Jersey, as all of his children were baptized with just the surname

- In 1664, the British, irritated by the growing population of Dutch between the British colonies of Boston and Virginia, surrounded New Amsterdam with a large naval force and forced New Netherland to become a British Colony, renamed New York. Inheriting a strong pioneering spirit and probably sick of British soldiers and taxes, Luur and Grietje moved their family around 1698 from the vicinity of Kingston to the Delaware valley wilderness known by the Indians inhabitants as Minisink or Machackemeck (now Port Jervis, Orange county, NY).
- The Kingston DRC records tell us only that Luur and his family were in "Minisink" by 1700. The term Minisink referred to a vast territory along the Delaware valley in the tri-state region of NY/NJ/PA. However, Only two areas were settled before 1700, Peenpack and Machackemeck. Peenpack, or the Upper Neighborhood, was well documented by Peter Gumaer and Luur was not one of the early settlers there. We know that William Tietsoort had been granted land in Machackemeck, or the Lower Neighborhood, in 1698 and we also know that Luur Jacobsen's oldest son, Jacob, married a daughter of William Tietsoort. I think we can fairly safely assume that Luur came to Machackemeck with William Tietsoort around 1698. If for no other reason than the fact that there don't seem to be any other possibilities. Old Minisink Village (Sussex Co. NJ) where Luur's sons, Jacob and Matthew later owned property wasn't settled until in the 1720's. The section of Minisink on the PA side of the Delaware wasn't settled until even later.
- Initially the local Leni-Lenape Indians, (called the Delaware by European settlers), were friendly toward these new neighbors. However, the Europeans penchant for exclusive land ownership soon led to hostilities. The history books reflect K-Family members among those scalped and kidnapped by Indian raiding parties.
- There in Minisink, Luur Jacobsen adopted a toponym - church records of 1706 list "Luur Jacobsen van Kuykendaal". Early Dutch Genealogists Van Laer and Versteeg explained the name to mean "van kijk-in-t'dal", translated "from view of the valley" i.e.; From Wageningen overlooking the Rhine valley. Not Chicken-Valley or Church-in-the-Valley as some references suggest.
Grietje Artze Tack parents:
- Aert Petersen Tack was a major grain grower during the early 1660's in the Esopus owning 20 morgens [40 Acres] of land outside the village of Wiltwyck but made his home in the village itself. He may have worked more land in the area as he apparently employed a goodly number of farm workers. One of those was a man by the name of Jacob Jansen van Etten who was known as "Tacks farm boss" and who later, would marry Annetje "Jane" Ariens, Aert Tacks former wife and the mother of Grietjen "Margaret" Tack van Kuykendaal.
- In the year 1663, Aert Petersen Tack is found confronted by a series of court suits stemming from complaints by Jacob van Etten and from his other farm workers as well as from suppliers whom he had failed to pay. All were seeking payment for work they had done and for supplies they had furnished during the year. In 1662 Tack had mortgaged the next years grain crop harvest and had spent the money so was unable to satisfy his debtors.
- In June 1663 the Indians of the area attacked the village of Wiltwyck, massacred residents, took prisoners and burned many of the homes. Aert Tack apparently took advantage of the situation and simply disappeared hoping that his wife, his debtors, as well as the courts would believe he had been taken captive by the savage Indians and probably killed. The absconding Aert Petersen Tack had deserted his wife and family and left Annetje, his wife, to face the responsibility of settling his affairs and facing the problems he had created. Although no record has been found, it is recorded he returned and died ca. 1705 in Kingston, Ulster, New York.

- The cemetery and town. Kuykendall’s land grants, those he received as a Revolutionary War veteran and those he bought, total more than 2,000 acres The land was along the “Saluda Path,” the old turnpike (U.S. 25 South), according to land records and geographical maps.
- n the 1740s, Kuykendall’s family migrated down the Great Wagon Road from New York to settle in North Carolina. He quickly became a community leader. He served the N.C. colony as a corporal during the 1740s Spanish Alarm, when Spain was a threat to ports on the Carolina coast. In 1775, he was named captain of the Safety Committee in Tryon, a form of law enforcement in small communities then. When war began in earnest, he was commissioned as a captain in the Tryon Militia during the Revolutionary War, serving from 1774 to 1781. He was also a member of the Committee of Safety and served with Capt. Corbin. He was a member of Samuel Adams’ Committee of Correspondence.
Kuykendall was appointed Justice of the Peace and Justice for the Court of Quarter Sessions by the N.C. General Assembly. He served as a county commissioner for both Tryon and Rutherford counties. He was also asked to oversee building a road and locating a site for the courthouse in Rutherford County.
On Oct. 10, 1779,
- Abraham made one of the earliest requests for a land grant in Flat Rock, though it was not made official until the 1790s. He was an old man, with a new, young wife, when he moved to the newly opened wilderness, along with several of his grown children and grandchildren. Basically, he owned what we call Flat Rock today. Abraham founded some of WNC’s first businesses, including a fine inn, a tavern and a mill. He also donated the land where the current Mud Creek Baptist Church and cemetery are located. He was buried there in 1812.
- Abraham Kuykendall did amass considerable wealth. He built a complex that included a tavern, an inn and a meeting house/church located on Rutledge Drive, in the area between today’s Mud Creek Baptist Church and St. John in the Wilderness Church. He also owned a grist mill. As business was conducted in coins those days and there were no banks, Abraham stored his earnings at home. Abraham and wife Elizabeth were married for 55 years. They raised more than a dozen children. But Elizabeth preceded Abraham in death at around age 75.
Enter Bathsheba, Abraham’s second wife who was both young and beautiful. His bride liked to spend so Abraham decided to hide his money. He put his coins in an iron wash pot and went through the forest with two blindfolded slaves carrying the money. They buried the pot under a large white oak, were blindfolded again and returned home.
When Abraham decided to retrieve his money, he headed for the woods. No one knows for sure, but the theory is he tripped, hit his head and rolled into a creek called Pheasant Branch. There he was found dead, facedown in the stream. He was 93. The coins were never located, but a local family that suddenly became wealthy caused some raised eyebrows.
Lots of folk have looked for the treasure.

- A Robert McMinn presented himself in Charleston in Sep 1767 and rec'd 100 acres on the bounty and was among other recipients recently arrived from Newry in Northern Ireland. Petitions for land from the South Carolina Council journals / by Brent H. Holcomb vol 6 It's quite likely that he was on that ship Britannia that arrived in Charleston in August 1767 but there is no conclusive proof since many of the ship manifests no longer exist. The 100 acres isHe received a Protestant Land Grant in the Long Canes district of the Savannah River from King George III. This land was originally surveyed in 1768 in SC and this land was part of Old Tryon County which ended up in NC after the border in the west was moved south in 1772 to include lands originally granted in SC but I have not located such a record. Because he received 100 acres, we can assume he presented himself with no wife or children, or would have received more acreage. ?This land was originally surveyed in 1768 in SC and this land was part of Old Tryon County which ended up in NC after the border in the west was moved south in 1772 to include lands originally granted in SC. This land is in present day Rutherford County, NC but I have not been able to lacate the record of this survey. Is this our Robert McMinn? Another source says it got land in Tryon Co. in 1770

- t a meeting of the freehold- ers of the county of Tryon, at the ' court house of the said county on the twenty-sixth of July, one thousand '■ seven hundred and seventy-five; in ' order to select a committee for said 1 county: "The following persons were; 1 chosen; to wit: Captain Kuykendall's Company: Abraham Kuykendall, William Thornpson, Robert McMinn.
- Robert is also listed in Revolutionary History of NC as petitioning the state for reimbursement of a rifle and stolen horse by Tories. Burial place is unknown and assumed to be on his land in Rutherford Co. or in Mud Creek Cemetery where his father in law, Abraham Kuykendall is buried.
- He served in Tryon on the Committee of Safety in 1775. The hostile Indians and War of the Revolution hindered his progress toward the Blue Ridge mountains. Shortly after his death in 1797 in Rutherford County NC, his wife Jane Kuykendall McMinn bought land from her father Abraham Kuykendall in the Flat Rock area of Henderson County.

Rev. Thomas Osborne McMinn's career
- Much of the detail on Thomas' early career comes from a book " The Life and Labors of Henry S Gordon The founder of the Free Will Baptist Church of Southern Illinois" by his son G. A. Gordon published 1901.Thomas named a son after Rev Gordon and spoke at his funeral. The book has a photograph of the group of Free Will Baptists in the area which includes Thomas and the men closest to him who ordained Thomas's son John. It also has a section written by Thomas describing his beliefs.
- A little background on the Free Will Baptists. One group located in NC is the group that survives today with that name. This is not the group Thomas, his father-in-law William H Blankenship,and son John were a part of. The were followers of the Northern group who followed Randall. In 1911, most of the Free Will Baptists joined the Northern Baptists which then became the American Baptist. The Free Will Baptists under Randall were abolitionists. In fact William W Blankenship was living in TN during the civil war. After being warned by a neighbor that some men were coming to kill him that night, William fled with his family to Southern Illinois.
The book linked to above explains much of their beliefs as well as many web sites which explain the name changes.
- He was baptized at age 17 (by his future father-in-law).and later ordained 10 Nov 1875 by Rev. W.H. Blankenship, J.C. Gilliland, J. S. Gullege at Cottage Home, IL.
- T.O. founded the Cottage Home Baptist Church. It was built in 1883. They have modified as little of the church as possible. The current minister is Tom Monroe. History of the church was supplied by N. Taylor 687-549-2004 who attended as a child. A local history book describes his founding of the church. " Grassy Creek came about as a result if a revival in March of 1883, led by the Evangelist C. Y. Key, conducted in the Mann School Building about 6 miles south of Carterville, .Illinois. An exhorted name T. O. McMinn, served with Rev. Key during the meeting. It seems however, there was a doctorial difference between these two men and at the close of the meetings the ministers each called for members contemplating organization of churches to step forth. Those who responded to the leadership of evangelist Key organized themselves into the Grassy Creek Baptist Church. Those who followed the leadership of McMinn organized themselves into the Cottage Home Baptist Church a Free Will Baptist Church. " Rev Key was evidently a traveling missionary.
- He was a member of the 1883 General Conference at Minneapolis and in 1895 at Winnebago MN.
- In the early days he was a real circuit rider, serving several churches at the same time going from church to church and farm to farm on horseback. The family was very poor during that time. He helped start or grow several churches. For example they got an orange as a Christmas present. Some churches he was involved with: Campbell Hill Free Will Baptist Church, 1886 helped reorganize Ava Free Will Baptist Church, 1897-1900 Scheller Church,1901 Murphysboro Church
- He had 3 main churches where served for many years: Tamaroa IL, Little Cedar IA, and one in Nebraska. The family seemed good financially then.
- In his later years, Thomas worked for the American Baptist association of churches after returning to IL in 1918. His earlier association with the Free Will Baptists were thought an aid to convert people to the new association. His job was to get others to join that association. He retired in the 20s as he became quite forgetful.
- A sort of rival was W.P.Throgmorton, a minister who was part of another group of Baptists, .the Franklin Association of United Baptists. But Rev Throgmorton did marry Thomas and his first wife Georgeanne Blankenship.
Lets gather family stories we've heard of him as a minister.

- John meet a John Frederick McMinn b. 8 Sep 1879 Santa Rosa CA d. 15 Apr 1858 Sonoma when he was in NY being shipped overseas. They were both in the YMCA and discovered they were related but was this just because of their last name? John F was a vocal teacher. He is descended from Joseph McMinn Hawkins TN.

Rev. John Bascom McMinn's career
- John started showing his future avocation at a young age. His aunt Fanny Blankenship relayed the story of her talking care of him and his siblings when their mother died. John was 6. She said she knew he was going to be a preacher when he got up on a stump and started preaching.
- John ordained a Free Will Baptist minister 15 Sep 1896 Marion IL Johnsonville Church, Wayne Association. He was Ordained by his father T.O. McMinn, G.A. Gordon, G.P. McBride, and J.L. Meads, all men described in the Gordon book described in the section on John's father Thomas.
- He had several phases to his ministry. The first part he had a series of churches with some state work inbetween. His next phase was as an evangelist which lasted over a decade. Then in his last phase he had the church in Mayville.
- During his Evangelistic phase, he served in WWI as a chaplin in France through the YMCA. He left for France on 12 Sep 1918 and returned 8 May 1919.
- How did his beliefs effect his relationships with others? Leora said when a black family came to town to speak, they could not stay at the hotel. John and Mary opened their home to them. Leora also said if an unmarried girl became pregnant, Mary tried to be helpful and was not judgmental. They have tried to encourage people to be good but didn't condemn them if they did not. Even decades later, trips to Mayville where John's last ministry was, resulted in constant comments about how wonderful he was a minister. He was well remembered and well loved. He did have one vice. He loved to drive a buggy fast. Leora said some times he's race if some one tried to pass him.
- The Evening Star was a weekly nation newspaper for the Free Will Baptists. John had a lengthy response in the 3 September 1908 issue to a previous article about the clergy. There was a reference to his church in one of the status reports and presumably there would be other references to him and his father in other issues.
- A quote from a newspaper announcing that John was planning a revival in the Honeycreek area "From a brief acquaintance with the Elder he impresses us as one capable of waking up the simmers over that way with a series of their inequities if any body can. Full of energy, he is frank and open -- a man to inspire confidence by his earnestness and nothing but genuine success will satisfy his zeal."
- From an article in the Winnebago MN area when he was working with Parker College "As a speaker he is scholarly, evangelical, and above all a christian gentleman."
- Mary had at least 2 clippings from a revival at Benton Harbor. Article 1 dated 29 Mar 1913 and article 2 with no date.
- There is an article with no date or location.
- The Poughkeepsie Daily Eagle has several articles related to a series of meetings John conducted Nov-Dec 1915 in Beacon NY. These come from the web. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 . They really talk about his style and sermon topics. An article after the meetings indicate John was interested in the YMCA before he went to France as a chaplin during WWI. The weekly Sunday paper The Courier, had a cartoon with John in it. The whole set of cartoons shows the theme is thanks - its the Thanksgiving edition of the paper. But here is the specific cartoon of John. It is consistent with chasing out the devil mentioned in the article and of course the location is Beacon NY.

- The Westfall name is reportedly derived from Westphalia, a region of western Germany. In ancient times the Westfall's were a tribe of related families who lived on the western plains of Germany. The name means literally, people of the western fields or plains.”“Reportedly in 1500's two brothers, Von Westphals, took part in a rebellion against the Catholic Prince in their district and they fled first to Prussia and later to Holland to escape reprisal.
- Because he was probably a poor farm laborer, and could not afford the ship's passage on his own, Juriean apparently signed a contract with the wealthy Dutch investor, Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, who was organizing a group to emigrate to New Amsterdam, in the Dutch Colony of New Netherlands (New York), and begin a plantation, or manor, for himself. Juriean traveled to New Netherlands on the Dutch sailing ship, 'Den Houttuyn,' which left Texel Holland on 6 June 1642, and, traveling 135 miles up the Hudson River and arriving at Fort Orange (Albany) New York on Aug 11, 1642.
- In 1654 he obtained a land grant and settled in Esopus (now Kingston, NY).
- After her husband Marretje married died Jacob Jansen.
Maretje Hansen van Noordstrand parents
- Hans Jansen Van Nordstrandt wed Reymerig Volkert and lived at Nordstrandt Island in present Germany. They had three children; Jan, Simon, and Marritje (Maria). Shortly after Marritje’s birth in 1636, the family came to America and Hans took up farming at Amersfoort (Brooklyn) on Long Island. Reymerig died soon thereafter and Hans married Jannetje Van Leeuwen at New Utrecht, Long Island. They had seven children. Maritje was eventually bound out to a tavern keeper at Fort Orange (Albany, NY) and in 1653, at the age of seventeen, wed Juriaen Westfall.
