Shadrach was raised in Albemarle, Virginia. Moved to North Carolina as a young man. Shadrach was a Revolutionary Soldier; commissioned at Lt. in May 1774 and as Captain in 1787. He received a land grant in North Carolina (now Tennessee). Land Grant # 178 containing 200 acres, registered 14 March 1849, grant date 13 November 1787. It was located on the north side of the Nolachucky River. He owned several other farms to which I have copies of deeds. He also owned several slaves, I have copies of Bills of Sale for slaves. I have a copy of his will dated 24 July, 1827 and codicil dated 20 September 1830. He is buried in St. Paul's Churchyard in what is now Hamblen County, Tennessee. Ancestry is not proven on Shadrach, some say Stephen, some say Ezekiel. I am going with Ezekiel for now, subject to change.
