About Private Sampson Carver

A Patriot of the American Revolution for NORTH CAROLINA (Soldier). DAR Ancestor #: A020142

According to NC Patriots 1775-1783: Their Own Words, Volume 2, Part 2, p. 158: Sampson Carver of Bladen County, was a known Private under Capt. James Council and Col. Thomas Robeson, participating in the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge on 2/27/1776. The Battle of Moore’s Creek Bridge took place on Feb. 27, 1776, 18 miles northwest of Wilmington. It was the first battle to take place in North Carolina. The victory by the Militia ended British authority in the state. In addition to giving a boost to morale and encouraging additional recruits to the Revolutionary cause, the victory helped prevent the British from controlling the southern colonies. A little more than a month later, North Carolina became the first colony to vote in favor of independence from Britain.

A faithful Revolutionary Soldier as was also his two or three brothers in Cumberland County. He moved to Georgia in 1800 and settled first in Burke County, where he lived a year or two, then moving to Tattnall County soon after it's creation. He was Justice of the Peace in Payne's District, Tattnall County, 1803 - 1804. He served on the first Grand Jury in Tattnall County, October 1805. . James Ford sold his home place on the Ocnee River in Tattnall County to Sampson Carver, "of Burke County", October 01, 1801, and they lived there for some years. In 1819, when Appling County was opened up for settlers, Sampson Carver and family moved across the Altamaha River in "the new purchase" as the first settlers called it. In 1825, he was cut out of Appling County. In the 1830 census, he and his wife were living alone, all their children being grown and married. Sampson died about 1838 in that part of Ware that was cut into Coffee County in 1854. Moses Kirkland was administrator of his estate and applied in Coffee County for dismission January 28, 1856, having wound up the estate.

Addition at FindAGrave: He died correctly in Telfair County, Georgia - Coffee County was not created until 1856 - a lot of people who show in Telfair in 1850 are in Coffee in 1860 due to the creation of the new county of Coffee.
