THE HAMRICK AND OTHER FAMILIES & INDIAN LORE by Mayme
H. Hamrick (1939)
Benjamin Hamrick of the Revolution
The Hamricks of Braxton, Webster, Randolph and Pocahontas
counties (W.VA), are descendants of Benjamin Hamrick, a
soldier who fought in the American Revolution. He was born
in Prince William, now Fauquier County, Virginia, in 1755,
In November, 1775, he enlisted in the military service of
the colonial government of Virginia, as a "Minute Man,"
and served for a period of six months. He was at that
time twenty years of age. He engaged in the battle of
Great Bridge, on the bank of the Elizabeth River,
commanded by Colonel Edward Stevens. In October, 1776,
he enlisted in the Third Virginia Regiment under Captain
John Chilton, and marched from Williamsburg to Alexandria,
Virginia, and from there to New York, where he joined the
regular continental army. (1)
At Brandywine Benjamin Hamrick participated in several of
the most decisive battles of the Revolutionary War, The
records disclose that he was at the capture of Trenton
on December 26, 1776, when General Washington one sleety
night crossed the ice-clogged Delaware river, captured
one thousand prisoners, and seized a large amount of
equipment. He fought at the battle of Princeton,
January 3, 1777. He engaged in the battle of Brandywine
Creek, September 11, 1777, at which battle General
Lafayette was wounded. On October 4, 1777, he engaged
in the battle of Germantown, near Philadelphia.
With Washington at Valley Forge In September, 1777;
Benjamin Hamrick was attached to the third and forth
Virginia Regiments under Captain John Blackwell,
commanded by Lieutenant Colonel William Heth, while
at Valley Forge.
At the time he entered said encampment he was a private,
receiving six and two-third dollars per month. In April,
1778, he was commissioned corporal, and received seven
and one-third dollars per month Virginia currency.
During the period of service in 1777, and 1778, Benjamin
Hamrick was frequently assigned to scout duty, as
disclosed by the records of the War Department...
It is known...from corroborating affidavits filed with
the Secretary of War in 1832, by comrades of Banjamin
Hamrick, that he served throughout the Revolutionary
War, and was in the service in Virginia, at the time
of the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown,
October 19, 1781. (2)
Benjamin Hamrick married Nancy McMillian, daughter of
John and Martha McMillian, in Fauquier county, Virginia,
while on furlough from the Continental Army in 1779.
The date of the marriage is given in an affidavit of
Joseph McMillian filed on behalf of Benjamin Hamrick
when the latter made application for a pension under
the Act of Congress of 183?. In the affidavit the
affiant says, "he (Benjamin Hamrick) came home on
furlough and visited his father who lived just three
miles from my father. He married my sister and built
a house and lived with my father."
That Benjamin Hamrick was one of the early settlers
in Greenbrier County, Virginia, now West Virginia,
is disclosed by the early tax lists and census
records, now in the Virginia State Archives, Richmond,
Virginia. The oldest available lists disclose the
heads of families living in Greenbrier county,
between 1783 and 1786. The name of Benjamin Hamrick,
is on that, and each successive list, until 1796.
That he removed from Fauquier County between 1781,
the late of the surrender of Cornwallis, and 1785,
is definitely known. As the boundary of Greenbrier
County, formed in 1777, embraced the territory that
is now Kanavha, Nicholas, Braxton and Greenbrier
counties, and part of Monroe County, it is difficult
to locate the place to which he first came and
established his residence. One writer has stated
that he first came to Cherry Tree Bottom where
the town of Richwood, Nicholas County, is now
His residence was near that place at the time of
the alarm of an intended Indian Raid in 1793. At
that time he hastily gathered his family and
abandoned his residence and fled to Donnally's Fort,
in Greenbrier County, near the present village of
Frankfort. The distance traveled on that journey was
more than one hundred miles. When all danger of
further interference had passed, he is believed
to have settled on Birch River.
In 1820, Benjamin Hamrick was living in Nicholas
County. In 1826, he petitioned the General
Assembly of Virginia for a pension for service
rendered in the military service of the Colony
of Virginia and the continental army. The
petition specifies the residence of the
petitioner as Nicholas County but does not
designate the exact location of his residence.
That he was totally disabled, due to exposure,
privations and hardships, experienced during the
Revolutionary War, is clearly set forth in his
petition. The bill for pension, although passed
