    John Weatherall, was born July 28, 1762. When he was 16 years old, he enlisted in the Army to fight with the Continental Army against the British. His younger half sister, Elizabeth Long, wrote a letter many years later about how grieved their Mother was at his enlistment. He enlisted in Richmond, VA., in December, 1778 in the 1st Regiment Light Dragons. He served his 3 years in the States of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina and in December 1781 was discharged in Richmond, VA. He left his horse with the proper officers there and walked to his home in Culpepper County. The record of his discharge is in the State Library in Richmond, spelling his name erroneously as Wetherall, but other papers are in the National Archives with correct spelling. [p] After the American Revolution was over, John and some of his relatives moved to the Abbeville District of South Carolina. In 1787 he married Elizabeth Jones. In 1800 he was Colonel of the Saluda Regiment and was a member of the legislature. In 1802 he was ordained a Ruling Elder in the Greenville (Saluda) Presbyterian Church and served in that office until his death in 1824.[p] John and Elizabeth Weatherall had 13 children
