    Residence for 1782 Tax Rolls for Virginia 
    • In John's pension application for the Revolutionary War, he states that he was enlisted in July 1780 from Mercer County, Virginia. Mercer County was not officially established until 1837. Mercer County was cut from Giles & Tazewell Counties. Giles County was not formed until 1806. It was formed out of Montgomery & Tazewell Counties. Therefore, I am concluding that the 1782 tax roles for Montgomery County, VA, which included John McGuire, could very well be for my own John McGuire.

    John G. McGuire on Uncle John McGuire
    John G. McGuire on Uncle John McGuire (4)
    This is a transcription of the biographical notes contained in John Jay Dickey's (1842-1934) Baptist Minister's Diary. The statement from John G. McGuire helps to clarify that the son of James "Blue Lick" McGuire who was named "John McGuire" is not the same person as John McGuire (1756-1837) of Floyd & Morgan County.

  • Notes 
    • Article by John Williams (obtained from J.T. Pieratt) "From the Wayside: Gathered During Idle Hours By the Peavine"
      "A John McGuire, who it has been said was a brother to James, appears in Clark County, Kentucky, records. His wife was Nancy ___ [Holder] and he has left numerous descendents in the Licking River territory."

      From an article in the book, "An Illustrated History of Bath County, Kentucky and Notes & Anecdotes of Many Years" by J.A. Richards (Copyright 1961) published by Southwest Printers, 30 west Third Street, Yuma, Az.
      Page 197-VI: "In 1792 John McGuire was riding a little bay mare on Mill Creek, hunting cows. He had crossed over Mill Creek and was trotting along Ely's Branch when he was fired upon by the Indians concealed in the bushes and fell from his horse after being shot through the breast. His horse, however, was standing perfectly still so he raised himself up, still holding the rein of the bridle in his hand, when casting his eye around he saw a large Indian coming towards him with his butcher knife in his teeth and trying to get his tomahawk out of his belt. McGuire knew the time for action was at hand, and being a powerful man, he summoned all of his strength, and by an extraordinary effort, he made a spring and jumped astride his faithful mare, and she darted off in the direction of the furnance. The Indians fired at him as he left, but without effect. He arrived there safely and finally recovered from his wound."

      Description:
      This database is a compilation of burial records from a variety of sources and cemeteries. These records provide information on the burials of U.S. veterans and their dependents who were buried in the various Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, or other military cemeteries. Because the information regarding the burials is compiled from multiple sources, the amount of information provided for each burial will vary. Some of the information you may find in this database includes: name of deceased, birth date, death date, interment date, burial location/site, cemetery name, cemetery address, relationship to veteran, veteran service dates, military rank, and military branch.
    • From the manuscript "John McGuire: Revolutionary Pensioner of Morgan County, Kentucky" compiled by Isabel D. McGuire, wife of John W. McGuire, Jr. of Leawood, Kansas, submitted to the Kennedy Memorial Library in West Liberty, Kentucky, date July 28, 2000.

      Page 177:

      "Who were the brothers of James McGuire, Sr., killed at Blue Licks?,

      The 1770s tax lists of Botetourt County, Virginia (later Greenbrier County, Virginia) are convincing but not absolute proof that James McGuire, Sr., who was killed at the Battle of Blue Licks: John McGuire, Sr.; William McGuire, Sr.; and Cornelius McGuire, Sr. were brothers. A Thomas McGuire who lived a neighbor to William McGuire, Sr., on Silver Creek, Madison County, Kentucky, may or may not be a brother to the four senior McGuires on the above referred to tax lists. John McGuire, Sr., on this tax list was deceased in or before 1780..."
    • Children of John McGuire (1756-1837):
      Isabel D. McGuire, wife of John W. McGuire (from Leawood, Kansas) in her manuscript, "John McGuire: Revolutionary Pensioner of Morgan County, Kentucky" placed on file at the public library in West Liberty, Kentucky stated that she only had evidence of 3 children: Jane, James & Samuel.

      However, the Family Group Sheets that I obtained from J.T. Pieratt of Nicholasville,, KY, probably being those of Ruth Eager Moran, listed two additional children: John McGuire and George W. McGuire.
