Biography

John was a "Long Hunter" and in 1763, was living on the Green River, in what is now KY, with the Cherokees. Beginning about 1763, he and other Long Hunters hunted and trapped on the Green River, making trips down the Cumberland River, to Spanish Natchez to sell their furs. Col. Gasper Mansker once became ill in Natchez, and John Baker stayed with him until he was able to travel, then he & Gasper walked cross country back to Virginia John served as a Captain in Col Benjamin Cleveland's Regiment during the Am. Rev. A great grandson, when applying for membership in the SAR, wrote, "Capt. John Baker and his company went to the rescue of Col. Benjamin Cleveland when the Tories were about to hang him." John Renty came to KY after the War & lived in Fayette, Boyle, Madison, Rockcastle & Clay Counties. Late in life he married 2nd, Aza Williams. After Aza died John lived in a rockhouse near the mouth of Buffalo Creek, now in Owsley Co, KY, & died there in 1820. John Rentie is said to have fathered several 1/2 indian children.

Allen E. Robertson gave an interview in 1898 in Clay County in which he discussed "Renta" and some of his sons.[1]

Note: one of the merged profiles had a death date of 10 November 1820, but no source has been found for this.
