Biography

Cornelius Dysart enlisted for the Revolutionary war efforts in South Carolina during October 1775 in a volunteer company of militia under Capt. William Fullwood. [1][2] He later became a brigade sergeant under General Sumter.[3][4]

Dr. Cornelius Dysart, a distinguished physician and surgeon of the Revolutionary army, married Charity Jack, the eldest daughter of Patrick Jack of Charlotte, North Carolina[5] in February 1778 as printed in the Thursday, February 26, 1778 edition of The South- Carolina and American General Gazette.[6][7]. The Dysart family, at that time, resided in Mecklenburg County, NC. Dr. Dysart is said to have built the first house on the "Irwin Corner" assisted by his brother-in-law, Captain Jack, who owned the lot until his removal to Georgia, shortly after the war.[8]

It read: "Died, on Sunday evening last, Doctor Cornelius Dysart, an old resident of this city, after a long and painful illness."[9] Dr. Dysart died comparitively young, leaving a widow and two children, James and Robert Dysart, who settled in Georgia.[10]

After researching this family for many years, I am convinced that Cornelius Dysart does not belong to this family. Two James Dysarts came from Londonderry in the mid-18th century to Pennsylvania. I am convinced that Cornelius belonged to the other one..Just for the record, a third went to western Virginia and was an officer in the Revolutionary War.

Cornelius is 20 degrees from Cari Starosta, 19 degrees from Marie-Antoinette d'Autriche and 14 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
