Biography

James Underwood was born on May 2, 1752. He was the son of Samuel Underwood and Anne Travilla. [1] Samuel Underwood was living at his farm at London Grove, Chester County Pennsylvania in 1752. Therefore, James Underwood was most probably born there. In 1754, the Underwood family moved to Warrington, York County Pennsylvania.

James Underwood was 10 years old when the Underwood family embarked upon the Old Wagon Road on their trek south to Orange County, North Carolina. The family was welcomed into the Quaker congregation there in 1762.[2]

James Underwood settled with his family for a time near the Cane Creek Quaker Meeting. There are various clues of his presence in Orange, Chatham and Randolph Counties in North Carolina, all of which were served by the Cane Creek Quaker Meeting house.

According to Walter Clark's "The State Records of North Carolina" James Underwood fought on the NC Continental Line during the Revolutionary War.[3]

James Underwood's service has been recorded with the Daughters of the American Revolution. His DAR Patriot identification number is A117943.[4]

After the Revolutionary War, James Underwood and his family were enumerated in the 1790 Census at Chatham County, North Carolina.[5] The James Underwood family also appears in the Chatham County, North Carolina Censuses of 1800[6] and 1810.[7]

Sometime between 1810 and 1820, James Underwood moved west with his family. The pioneers were settled in Fairfield, Highland County, Ohio by the time of the 1820 Census.[8] This area is where James Underwood stayed for the remainder of his life.[9]

James Underwood died in 1834 at his home in Highland County, Ohio. He is buried at the Hightop Cemetery there.[10]
