Submitted by Gale E.S. Honeyman (address above) who inherited the records: REVOLUTIONARY WAR PENSION RECORD from Nation ' al Archives, Washington, D.C. - JOHN McKOR (Melchoir) ELLER # S-6819. While residing in Rowan Co., N.C. enlisted in 1780 serving 3 months under Capt. Richard Graham's N.C. Company, discharged 24 Mar 1780. Also served 3 months ;under Capt. David Caldwell, 10 days under Peter Faust helping to build fort on the Yadkin River. He captured a deserter, Daniel Redmond, from the Continental Line of N.C. delivering him to Capt. George Doherty for which he was exempt for a 3 month term under Livingston's Brigade which camped at Frohocks Mill 10 Aug 1781. A widower, his pension allowed 9 Apr 1833 at which time he was 77 and living in Rowan Co. Abraham Ary & Christian Kesler made out an affidavit substantiating his age.


(Eds. note: The above agrees substantially with photocopies of the Records from the National Archives provided by Charlotte Eller Marshall, 605 S.E. Park Ave., Corvallis OR, 97333. John Melchior Eller was one of three Rowan Co. N.C. Ellers who fought in the Revolutionary War. The other two were brothers, John and Joseph Eller, sons of immigrant Jacob Eller. J.W. Hook thought John Melchior was also a son of-this Jacob Eller but researchers in Rowan Co. now assign him as a son of immigrant Melchior Eller who married his first cousin, Susanna, daughter of immigrant Jacob Eller. The records of service of John and Joseph Eller in the Revolutionary War will be published at a later date.)

Continuing from the Pemberton records as copied by Mr. Honeyman: A note typed 23 Oct 1957 by Terese Rechmack, secretary to Mr. Hook, reporting James W. Hook's death 21 Oct. 1957. Another letter dated 1 Oct 1973 by Mae R. Hayes, Rt. 4 Box 663, North Wilkesboro, N.C. 28659 saying her husband descended from Peter Eller Jr. thro' Susanna w/o David McGlamery, their Dau. Nancy Caroline w/o Walter Robinson, their dau. Mary w/o William Jasper Hayes & their son R. Duff, the writer's father-in-law and Peter Jr. thro' dau. Katherine w/o Abraham Edward Nichols, their son William Berry h/o Cynthia Roberson, their son David Vance h/o Sarah Julia Bumgarner, their dau. Bessie w/o R. Duff Hayes.

(Eds. Mr. Honeyman ends with the statement that," Miss Pemberton was a professional researcher.")
