    Most of those obtaining land did so for their own personal use, but there were some land speculators. Among these speculators were William Lenoir, William McClain and Memican Hunt. Many of those settling in Ashe County were probably similar to John Henry Stonecypher. In 1743 Johannes Steinseiffer (1692-1757) arrived in Philadelphia from Eisenfeld, Germany. He settled in Culpepper County, Virginia. Johannes died in the early summer of 1757. Having money in their pockets for the first time, the two elder sons sometime later moved to North Carolina. Honoricus settled on Lewis Fork of Yadkin River at the foot of the Blue Ridge. His brother, Johannes Heinrich (John Henry), moved into Ashe County and was settled on Naked Creek by 1780 at which time his name had already been Anglicized to Stonecypher.
