      Acting under an order of council, John Lewis and James Patton surveyed in 1744 a tract nearly fifteen miles long, but nowhere more than about one and one-eighth miles broad. Their map shows it cross-sectioned into twenty-three lots, the first lying where Goshen now stands and the last rather to the north of Deerfield. With a single exception, every lot had already been taken by some settler. The following tabular statement shows consecutively the number of the lot, the name of the settler, the acreage, the purchase price, when stated in the deed, and the early transfers of title. In those instances where the deed was issued to some other individual than the original settler, the name is given in brackets. The name of a wife is also thus given.

      In 1743, John Lewis and James Patton obtained a grant for 10,500 acres on Calfpasture River in western Augusta County. (Source: "Ulster Scots in Virginia", by Richard McMaster)

      In 1744, an early settlement on 16,500 acres on the Calfpasture granted to James Patton and John Lewis was very closely associated with the James River and Roanoke settlements. The original settlers were Alexander Dunlap, William Jameson, Thomas Gilham, Robert Crockett, David Davis, Thomas Weems, Henry Gray, Francis Donally, Robert Gay, Samuel Hodge, John Miller, Robert Bratton, James Lockridge, John Graham, Robert Gwin, John Preston, William Warwick, James Carlisle, Jacob Clements, John Campbell, James Carter, Loftus Pullen (Pullin), John Wilson, John Kincaid, William Elliott, Jr., William Hamilton, William Gay, Samuel Gay, John Ward.

      In 1750, as listed in the following citation in Chalkley's, early settlers petitioned for a road for eaiser travel:

      About Brigadier General Andrew Lewis (Continental Army)

      A Patriot of the American Revolution for VIRGINIA with the rank of BRIGADIER GENERAL. DAR Ancestor #: A069714

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Lewis_(soldier)

      Andrew Lewis (October 9, 1720 ? September 26, 1781) was an American pioneer, surveyor, and soldier from Virginia. He served as a colonel of militia during the French and Indian War, and as a brigadier general in the American Revolutionary War. He is most famous for his 1774 victory in the Battle of Point Pleasant in Dunmore's War.

      Early years

      Lewis was born in County Donegal, Ireland to John Lewis and Margaret Lynn. In 1732 John Lewis fled to America after having killed his landlord during an altercation. He brought his family to Virginia, including his sons Andrew and Thomas. They became some of the first settlers in western Augusta County. Andrew gained a basic education, and learned the skills of a surveyor.

      Early in the 1740s Lewis married Elizabeth Givens, daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Cathey) Givens formerly of County Antrim, Ireland. Lewis and his wife established their own home. They called it Richfield, and it was located in what today is Roanoke County near Salem. Over the coming years they would have seven children: Samuel (c.1748-1763), John (1750-1788), Thomas (1752-1800), Andrew Jr. (1759-1844), Ann (1760), William (1764-1812), and Charles (c.1768-1781).

      Lewis spent fifteen years developing his farm and working as a surveyor in southwestern Virginia. He surveyed much of the Greenbrier District of Augusta County, later Greenbrier County, West Virginia. He became the commander, as county lieutenant and later captain of the Augusta County militia, after some years involvement in protecting against American Indian raids.

      French and Indian War

      The French and Indian War brought serious conflict to the Virginia frontier. The frontier militia was more formally organized, and Lewis became a captain in Colonel George Washington's regiment. He was at Fort Necessity when Washington was forced to surrender it in 1754.

      When Washington's proposal for a series of frontier fortifications was approved, Lewis was promoted to major to oversee the section along the Greenbrier River. On February 18, 1756, The Big Sandy Expedition, commanded by Major Andrew Lewis departed from Fort Frederick with his White and Virginia Cherokee troops to raid Shawnee towns along the Big Sandy and Ohio rivers in retaliation for Shawnee attacks on frontier forts. He took part in a number of expeditions against both Indian settlements and French outposts. While a part of the Forbes Expedition, he took part in Major James Grant's attack on Fort Duquesne, and was captured in September 1758. He was taken to Quebec and held as a prisoner until late in 1759.

      Between wars

      When relative peace came to the frontier, Lewis concentrated on his growing family and his plantation at Richfield. He became part of the local political leadership. When Botetourt County was erected in 1769 his neighbors sent him to the House of Burgesses, starting in 1770. He would remain a member until 1780, but attended only occasionally, since his military duties took precedence.

      Although the Proclamation of 1763 officially restricted Virginia's western expansion, Lewis remained active in hunting and exploration trips into what is now West Virginia. He also provided militia support to some of the western settlements. Then in 1774, Dunmore's War broke out. Governor Dunmore planned an attack, and led a force from Fort Pitt into the Ohio Country. Lewis, now a colonel, led a second force against the Shawnees by the southern route.

      Colonel Lewis met resistance from Shawnee Chief Cornstalk at the Ohio River crossing at Point Pleasant. Lewis's victory in the Battle of Point Pleasant on October 10 was the most significant of that conflict, and firmly secured his military reputation.

      American Revolution

      When the American Revolution began, Governor Dunmore prorogued the Burgesses in 1774. The Whigs (as the American rebels were known) gathered a provisional congress to carry on. Andrew Lewis and his brother Thomas were both delegates to this congress and that of the following year. When the Continental Congress created a Continental Army in 1775, General Washington asked Lewis be made a brigadier general. But the congress had decided on one from each state, and the honor for Virginia went to Charles Lee.

      In March of 1776, Lewis accepted his appointment as a Brigadier General in the Continental Army. He oversaw the defense of Virginia, and raising of troops for the main army. That year, Governor Dunmore was still making attacks along the coast. The Committee of Safety called on Lewis to resolve this problem. On July 9, 1776 he led the state's forces against Dunmore's last foothold, a fortified position built on Gwyn's Island in Chesapeake Bay. Lewis succeeded and forced Dunmore's departure for the Caribbean.

      On April 15, 1777, Lewis resigned his commission due to his failing health. He remained active in the Burgesses and the building of a new government for Virginia. In 1780, Governor Thomas Jefferson appointed him to the Council for the state. Lewis became sriously ill while returning home from a council meeting, and died of a fever in Bedford County on September 26, 1781. He was taken home to Richfield, and buried in the family plot. In 1887 he was re-interred in the East Hill Cemetery at Salem, Virginia.

      Legacy

      Lewisburg, West Virginia, is named after him. A statue of Lewis is among those honoring Virginia patriots (including Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, George Mason, Thomas Nelson, and John Marshall) on Richmond's Washington Monument in Capitol Square. An Andrew Lewis memorial is at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Virginia, featuring a statue of Lewis next to a cannon. The former Andrew Lewis High School, now Andrew Lewis Middle School, opened in 1931 and is named for him. Some residents petitioned without success for the new high school in Salem to bear the name Andrew Lewis, but the school opened in 1977 as Salem High School. On March 13, 2001, the General Assembly of Virginia designated the portion of Interstate 81 that traverses Rockbridge, Botetourt, and Roanoke Counties, and the city of Salem as the "Andrew Lewis Memorial Highway." The General Andrew Lewis Scout Reservation in Ona, West Virginia (near Huntington) is named for Andrew Lewis. It is operated by Tri-State Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Camp Arrowhead is located on the reservation.

      Tinkling Spring Photo Album
      Deeply imbedded in the history of the settlement of Augusta County is Tinkling Spring Church. The first settlers from the north were John Lewis who arrive in 1732 and William Beverley who was given a large land grant in 1736. The Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who followed lost no time in forming the Triple Forks of the Shenandoah Congregation and in petitioning the Donegal Presbytery for the services of a minister. Two centers of worship developed--Tinkling Spring and the Augusta Stone Meeting Houses. These pictures are from Howard McKnight Wilson's The Tinkling Spring: Headwater of Freedom, A study of the Church and Her People, 1732-1952, permission granted by Tinkling Spring Church.
      Tinkling Spring Church was officially founded in 1740. The first meeting house was a log cabin measuring twenty-four by fifty feet. The floor plan shows seating arrangement and pew rent. The small pulpit was located along the west wall. The interior was severely simple and the floor was the ground over which the the sanctuary was constructed. The pews were simple benches without backs, probably made of split logs.
      This monument, which stands outside the Fellowship Hall, reads, "Sacred to the Memory of the Immigrants to this valley who turned the wilderness into habitations." It lists the names of the original members who were assessed twelve shillings each to build the first meeting house. Administratively, the membership was divided into three Quarters headed by John Christian, William Wright, and John Finley. Christian's quarter included families named Black, Cowin, Wilson, Long, Bell, Alexander, Stewart, Patton, Hall, Robison, Cristian, Davison, McCollock, Caldwell, Armstrong, Rutledge, Henderson, Conegham, Thomson, Scott, Gamel, Ramsey, Preston, Maxwell, McDonal, Russell, Lewis, Hutchison, McClanahan, Brackenridge, and McCollock. Wright's quarter included families named Smith Hutchison, Palmer, Thomson, Moday, Frazer, Johnston, Logan, Henderson, Scileran, Black, Cear, McCune, Fergeson, and Wright. Finley's quarter included families named McClure, Turk, Gay, Finley, McCollock, Gelaspey, Edmiston, Campbell, Stewart, Peterson, Cear, Tays, Steel, and White. (Photo courtesy of Ellen L. Moffett)
      Interest in building a new meeting house began in 1777 when the subscribers agreed to pay the costs. However, completion of the building was delayed by the war and it wasn't until about 1792 that the Stone Sanctuary shown here was completed.
      The present church building was erected in 1849 and remodeled in 1916.

      The statue of Pioneer Woman was chosen by Howard McKnight Wilson as the Frontispiece in his The Tinkling Spring: Headwater of Freedom, A study of the Church and Her People, 1732-1952.
