About Thomas Cargile or Cargill

A Patriot of the American Revolution for NORTH CAROLINA (SOLDIER).       DAR Ancestor # A019125

Thomas Cargile

  Thomas Cargile filed for his pension  on Oct 22, 1833 from Bellefonte, Jackson county, Alabama.  In his deposition it states that “Thomas Cargill, of this county, now in his 72nd year personally appeared in open court and being ????? duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of congress of the 7th June 1832.  
  From the record of my age as states in my fathers bible, and which I have not to ??????, I was born on the 30th March 1702 in the state of Virginia but before the revolution I was removed with my fathers family into North Carolina.  
  About April 1777, being about one month in my 16th year, I volunteered in Wilks County N. Carolina and joined a company of militia which was raised to scour the country in search? of Tories.”
  It goes on to say that at the close of the Revolution he removed to Georgia where he remained until about 1816, when he removed to Alabama (then Mississippi territory), where he still resided.
  Thomas died on Sept. 10, 1847 and at that time his widow, Mourning Cargile, applied for his pension  from Marshall Co., Alabama.

Children of John and Catherine Cargile:

(1) John Cargile Jr., born c1745 Halifax County, Virginia; died after 1836 in Haywood County, North Carolina, married Keziah LNU

(2) William Cargile, born 1753/63, Wilkes County, NC; died 10 May 1844, Wilkes County, NC; married Margaret Ashinhurst.

(3) Thomas Cargile, born 30 March 1762 in Virginia; died 10 Sept 1847 in Marshall County, Alabama; married Mourning

Killingworth.

(4) Margaret "Peggy" Cargile, born c1757, Virginia; died 6 October 1779, Wilkes County, NC; married William Fletcher II, 6 October 1769. (Thomas was witness to rev pension papers for Fletcher) (5) James Cargile Sr. (my gggg-grandfather), born 1763, Halifax County, Virginia; died 17 June 1830, Overton County, Tennessee, First wife's name unknown (My gggg-grandmother); Second wife: Margaret Magdaline "Maggie" Flowers.

Does this tally with your records? Most of this information is from a lady named Katherine McClure who has done much research on our Cargile family.

I am sure that part of Thomas Cargile's relatives lived in Jackson Co., Al. about the time Thomas did, and continued to live there after Thomas' death in Marshall Co. I think they may have been nephews of Thomas. The names I have found in Jackson Co. are Jason Cargile, Wiley Cargile,

Joel Cargile, and others. Do you know who these three are?

There is an interesting note in some of the papers of Thomas' final estate. My great-grandfather and his sisters inherited their mother's part of Thomas' estate, their mother was Nancy Cargile Johnson. In these papers it stated that Leannah Johnson (my great-grandfather's sister) had been named it the will of a William Cargile from Hinds Co., Mississippi. Do you know who this William is?

I am also wondering if John Cargile, Sr. was married more than once, since John Cargile, Jr.'s birthdate is several years removed from the other children of John, Sr. Any ideas?

Mourning Killingsworth was Thomas Cargile's last wife, but was not the mother of his children. Do you know anyone who might know who he married the first time?

I have no information on Thomas Cargile's parents, except that his father was John Cargile, a gunsmith, in Wilkes Co., N.C. One John Cargile married a Catherine Reno/Reneau in, I believe, Georgia, but I believe this John and Catherine may not have been Thomas' parents. I am fairly certain that the Peggy Cargile who married William Fletcher was Thomas' sister. The fact that our John Cargile was a gunsmith may be helpful, but there seems to have been several Johns. Also, I believe Thomas had a brother named William, who lived in Hinds Co., Ms. In Jackson Co., Al. (from which Marshall Co. was partly formed) were several other Cargiles, which I feel sure were related, but I haven't determined how. If I find anything about Thomas' parents, I'll post it, and I hope you will post anything you find. Thanks, Lynn Hayes

I'm looking for any descendents of Thomas Cargile, b. l763 Va. d. l845 Marshall Co. Al., entered service from Wilkes Co. N.C., son of John Cargile.

"Revolutionary War-North Carolina Militia of Wilkes County" Applies for pension in Jackson County, Alabama in 1834.

He moved from Virginia to North Carolina in 1777 with his father. He served in the North Carolina Militia and was "assigned to protect from the Toriers." He and his two brothers served under Captain Joshua Townsend, Major Micajah Lewis and Colonel Benjamin Cleveland of Wilkes County. When his father died in 1780 from a fall of a tree he was sent home to finish his father's work for the Militia. His father was a blacksmith. After finishing what was needed he reenlisted in the Calvary and fought until the war was over.

After the War he moved on to Georgia and in 1816 we find him living in Monroe County, Alabama, Mississippi Territory. (He must have left his ONLY SON, Micajah, in Georgia, because we find records of Micajah marrying in Jasper County, Georgia, in 1818, at about 24 yrs. old. )

In 1830 he purchased land in Huntsville Meridian, Marshall County, Alabama, Certificates #3461, 6339, & 8250. His Estate Probate in 1847 showed he owned land in Franklin County, Tennessee.

On July 10, 1845 he was appointed legal guardian of his daghter, Nancy Cargill Johnson's mimor children.

On September 14, 1845 at age 85 he married his second wife, Mourning Killingsworth, b 1775 d 1883.
