Michael HARNESS leased land of Lord FAIRFAX for 99 years, and at the end of lease to buy it at one penny per acre.

Notes

They may have first resided along the South Branch on lot #47 West before settling near Petersburg, Grant Co., WV. Phillip was granted 265 acres on 3-Aug-1773 of which he sold 93 acres to his son, John on 9-Apr01800. Phillip also received a grant of 575 acres located along the Blackwater Creek and Yoakum Run, in present day Tucker (then Randolph) Co., WV. On 29-Mar-1802, Phillip sold this tract to his sons, Jacob and George. He was sheriff of Hardy Co., WV in 1787.

Traditional sources place 6 sons of Philip Powell Yoakum as soldiers in the Revolutionary War. This family also supposedly consisted of 13 children - 8 sons and 5 daughters. The only Revolutionary War soldiers listed above are John and Jacob. Jacob drew a pension, but his widow was denied such after his death. John has no extant records as a soldier in the War and never applied for a pension. The old tradition that several sons were killed in battle may hold true, but must be accepted at this time as tradition only (YOKUM).
