On 18 Oct. 1794 Lewis Throckmorton witnessed a deed from George & Sarah Tarvin to John Easton for 417 acres approximately one mile from the Potomac River.165

Lewis & Rachel owned large tracts of land on the south branch of the Potomac River and on the Cacapon River. Evidently in preparation for their planned removal to Ohio they made the following sales:

• 14 Sep. 1795: 37 acres in Hampshire Co. to Thomas Flora of Hampshire Co. Witnesses: Jacob Flora [see iii. below], Jacob Chrisman & Mary Chrisman,

• 16 Sep. 1797: 37 acres on the Potomac River to Robert Rogers of Hampshire Co. Witness: Andrew Woodrow,

• 18 Sep. 1797: 361 acres near the Potomac River to Charles Bevin of Hampshire Co. Witness: Andrew Woodrow, but Lewis’ death prevented their move west.

From there he sailed to Put-in-Bay Island and on to Erie, Penn.; thence into northern New York State and Canada. He served as a wheelwright. In 1850 he applied for a pension, giving his age as 83 years. That dates his birth to 1767. Probably he had exaggerated his age in order to get the pension. In his pension claim he stated that the cold and exposure of the campaign caused severe back trouble and other ills. On 2 Apr. 1851 he was granted at the Jackson Co. Court House 160 acres of land. Whether he used or sold this land is not known. His pension file number is IF-18422.172
