North Carolina Resisted the Landing of the StampsOn the 22nd of March, 1765, the Stamp Act was passed. This act produced great excitement throughout the whole country, including North Carolinians. The Legislature was then in session, and the opposition was so intense and wide-spread, that Governor Tryon feared the passage of denunciatory resolutions, so prorogued that body after a session of fifteen days. However, the speaker of the House, John Ashe, informed Governor Tryon that this law "would be resisted to blood and death." And he kept his word. Earlier that year, the sloop-of-war Diligence arrived in the Cape Fear River having on board stamp paper for the use of the province. Its approach had been closely observed, and when it anchored above the town of Brunswick on the Cape Fear, Colonel John Ashe, of the county of New Hanover and Colonel Hugh Waddell of the county of Brunswick, marched at the head of the brave sons of these counties to Brunswick, and notified the captain of their determination to resist the landing of the stamps. They then seized one of the boats of the sloop, hoisted it on a cart, fixed a mast in her, mounted a flag, and marched in triumph to Wilmington. The excited inhabitants all joined in the procession. That night the town was illuminated. On the next day, Col. Ashe, at the head of a great concourse of people, proceeded to the Governor's house and demanded of him to desist from all attempts to execute the Stamp Act, and to deliver to them James Houston, a member of the Council, who had been appointed Stamp Master for the Province. The Governor at first refused to comply with a demand so sternly made, but finally had to yield before the power of an incensed crowd of citizens preparing to set fire to his house. The Governor reluctantly produced Houston, who was seized by the people, carried to the market house, and there compelled to take a solemn oath never to perform the duties of his office. After this he was released and conducted by a delighted crowd, to the Governor's Palace. The people gave three cheers and quietly dispersed.
Minutemen Played a Crucial Role in the Revolutionary WarThe role of the minuteman was conceived in Massachusetts during the mid-seventeenth century. As early as 1645, men were selected from the militia ranks to be dressed with matchlocks or pikes and accoutrements within half an hour of being warned. Later on, another type of minuteman company was called Showshoemen and were to provide themselves with a good pair of snowshoes, one pair of moggisons, and one hatchet and to be ready to march quickly. Also, the French and Indian War had its Minutemen. By the time of the Revolutionary War, the 1775 muster of Minutemen was the product of many years of development. During February of 1775 Concord was one of the first towns to comply with the order to create Minutemen companies out of the militia. William McLean of Salisbury, North Carolina served as a private Militiaman and was wounded in the battle of Ramsour, by which use his right arm was partially lost. Alexander Worke and John Huggins of Rowan County, North Carolina testified that McLean was a militia soldier during June of 1780 and at the battle of Ramsour Mills where he was wounded by a ball in the joint of his right arm, which has rendered him disabled.

How Rowan County Smashed Lord CornwallisAfter Cornwallis passed over the Catawba river on February 1, 1781, he stayed behind at Cowans Ford about three hours to bury the dead. Meanwhile, Colonel Tarleton had been dispatched to pursue the patriots retreating in the direction of Torrence Tavern. Early in the morning of that same day Colonel Webster moved with his brigade and artillery to Beatties Ford, about six miles above Cowans Ford. It was there that Colonel Webster proceeded to fire several shots across the river at a small patriot detachment on the banks to clear the way for his crossing. When that worked, Webster and his two British forces pressed forward, however, towards a large body of assembling North Carolina Militia. The Militia was without a commander, and the troops were already discouraged by the death of General Davidson. So, as the despised Colonel Tarleton approached, the patriots poured out its fire, killing seven of the British horsemen and wounding others. Tarleton had just been defeated at Cowpens, and this victory helped to change the mood of the North Carolinians. When Lord Cornwallis published his general orders on February 1, 1781, he was "highly displeased" that several houses were set on fire that day, and declared it a disgrace to the army. Further, the orders stated that he would punish with the utmost severely any person or persons found guilty of committing such a disgraceful outrage. The order, no doubt, has reference to the burning of the houses of John Brevard, who had " seven sons at one time in the rebel army," and of Adam Torrence, a staunch Whig, where the skirmish had taken place. Meanwhile, General Greene was apprised of the successful battle against Tarleton at Cowpens. As Cornwallis proceeded to pursue General Morgan, General Stevens was ordered to march with his Virginia militia (whose term of service was almost expired) by way of Charlotte to take charge of the british prisoners captured by Morgan and conduct them to Charlottesville, Virginia. But General Greene was anxious to confer with Morgan personally and so left his camp on the Pee Dee and started for the Catawba with but one aid and two or three mounted militia. Along the route he was informed of he was being pursued by Lord Cornwallis. Greene reached Sherrills Ford, a few miles before Island Ford and had his interview with Morgan. That night while the British army readied their troops to prepare to pursue Green and Morgan, Greene and Morgan had not waited for the dawn, and crossed the Yadkin river at the Trading Ford, six miles beyond Salisbury while Cornwallis still slept. When Cornwallis awoke on the morning of February 3rd, he prepared to strike a fatal blow on the banks of the Yadkin, but the Americans were beyond his reach particularly because of the copious rains in the mountains which had swollen the Yadkin to a mighty river. But the horses of Morgan had forded the stream at midnight and the infantry passed over in boats at dawn. These vessels were fastened on the eastern shore of the Yadkin, and Cornwallis was obliged to wait for the waters to subside before he could attempt to cross. A corps of American riflemen were on the Western side when the vanguard of the British army approached, but these escaped across the river after a slight skirmish. Nothing was lost but a few wagons belonging to Whig families, who, with their effects, were fleeing with the American army. The surgeon of the American army (Dr. Read), left this record of the cannonading scene:"At a little distance from the river was a small cabin, in which General Greene had taken up his quarters. At this building the enemy directed their fire, and the balls rebounded from the rocks in the rear of it. But little of the roof was visible to the enemy. The General was preparing his orders for the army, and his dispatches to the Congress. In a short time the balls began to strike the roof, and clapboards were flying in all directions. But the General's pen never stopped, only when a new visitor arrived, or some officer for orders; and then the answer was given with calmness and precision, and Greene resumed his pen."Source: Sketches of Western North Carolina, Historical and Biographical by Author: C.

Rowan County Wills and EstatesThe first Europeans to enter what is now Rowan County came with the Spanish expedition of Juan Pardo in 1567. They established a fort and a mission in the native village of Guatari, believed to be located near the Yadkin River and inhabited by the Wateree. At the time, the area was ruled by a female chief the Spaniards called Guatari Mico. Rockingham County was formed in 1753 from the northern part of Anson County. It was named for Matthew Rowan, acting governor of North Carolina from 1753 to 1754.During 1770 the eastern part of it was combined with the western part of Orange County to become Guilford County, North Carolina. In 1771 the northeastern part of what remained of Rowan County became Surry County. In 1777 the western part of Rowan County became Burke County. In 1788 the western part of the now much smaller Rowan County became Iredell County. In 1822 the eastern part of the still shrinking county became Davidson County. Finally, in 1836 the part of Rowan County north of the South Yadkin River became Davie County. Many of the Rowan County records, wills, estates, etc. are intact. It is usually researched in conjunction with Surry, Burke and Iredell Counties. Some of the earliest settlers were: Henry Aginder, Erasmus Allen, Thomas Braly, William Barr, Daniel Bates, Henry Bruner, William Bartholomew, Michael Cove, Alex Carruth, Nathan Dicks, Hannel Edwards, George Erwin, Peter Fox, Stephen Glandon, John Holmes, Robert Johnson, Peter King, Peter Lawrence, Andrew Maden, Joshua Nichols, William Ogburn, William Porter, David Rothera, and John Thompson.
