About Daniel Givens, Jr.

A Patriot of the American Revolution for Virginia (Soldier). DAR Ancestor #: A045485

A Patriot Soldier for Virginia during American Revolution. He came from Northern Ireland to the colonies 1720s -1730s, coming first to Pennsylvania & Maryland, and then to Orange County, Virginia.

There are two dates that our family members believe, may have been Daniel’s birth year, 1739 to 1745. Dorothy Hall Givens concurred. RG & C&NG concur.

We think that Daniel was most likely born in the Colonies (most likely Pennsylvania). The family migrated down the Pennsylvania Turnpike into Southern Virginia maybe around the mid to late 1750’s. It is noted in history books that the Irish did not get along with the Germans or Quakers, so migrated South. This was Indian Territory and no one cared who ran them or killed them and settled the territory themselves. Augusta County that was formed in 1738 and started operations @1745­ and ­County in 1769-70, later where Daniel Givens lived, became Craig County, Virginia. One needs to look at maps to see how the size and configuration of these counties changed over the years Sinking Creek is in Craig County, Virginia as of 1851, which is West of New Castle, (Newcastle), Virginia.

We think, that Daniel Givens parents came to the Colonies (Pennsylvania), from the North of Ireland (Scotch-Irish descent), most likely from Co Antrim, as per John Paris Givens, (insert the paragraph from John Paris has in his research) ref p in G-HFH, and Dorothy Hall Givens joined in this thinking in her book, A Givens-Hall Family History from Pre-Revolutionary Times to 1970, p 1, noting Northern Ireland. [After 14 years of looking around CO Antrim I have not found kin of our Daniel Givens, and now looking in other counties in the North of Ireland 2007.

From--Duane D. (Rusty) Givens son of Donald Kenneth Givens, grandson of Hail C. Givens, ggrandson of James Harvison Givens, gggrandson of Joseph Givens, and ggggrandson of Daniel Givens [see A Givens-Hall Family History from Pre-Revolutionary Times to 1970 p-11, #6 in The Givens Tree Spreads, Chap. 6B, p140] With review and contributions by Nathaline & Clyde Givens my cousins who live in Ohio. Until I tire of doing my family research; this will be an on-going, updates, corrections, and questions to be resolved.
