2:268 1737 Page 122--Mary Greenlee deposes, 10th November, 1806, she and her husband settled in Borden's Grant in 1737. Her son John was born 4th October, 1738. She, her husband, her father (Emphraim McDowell, then very aged), and her brother, John McDowell, were on their way to Beverley Manor; camped on Linvel's Creek (the spring before her brother James had raised a crop on South River in Beverley Manor, above Turk's, near Wood Gap); there Benj. Borden came to their camp and they conducted him to his grant which he had never seen, for which Borden proposed giving 1,000 acres. They went on to the house of John Lewis, near Staunton, who was a relative of Ephraim McDowell. Relates the Milhollin story. They were the first party of white settlers in Borden's Grant. In two years there were more than 100 settlers. Borden resided with a Mrs. Hunter, whose daughter afterwards married one Guin, to whom he gave the land whereon they lived. Her brother John was killed about Christmas before her son Samuel (first of the name) was born (he was born April, 1743). Benj. Borden, Jr., came into the grant in bad plight and seemed to be not much respected by John McDowell's wife, whom Benj. afterwards married. Jno. Hart had removed to Beverley Manor some time before deponent moved to Borden's. Joseph Borden had lived with his brother Benj.; went to school, had the smallpox about time of Benj's. death. When he was about 18 or 19 he left the grant, very much disliked, and dissatisfied with the treatment of his brother's wife. Beaty was the first surveyor she knew in Borden's grant. Borden had been in Williamsburg, and there in a frolic Gov. Gooch's son-in-law, Needier, has given him his interest in the grant. Borden's executor, Hardin, offered to her brother James all the unsold land for a bottle of wine to anyone who would pay the quit rents, but James refused it because he feared it would run him into jail. This was shortly after Margaret Borden married Jno. Bowyer. John Moore settled in the grant at an early day, where Charles Campbell now lives. Andrew Moore settled where his grandson William now lives. These were also early settlers, viz: Wm. McCandless, Wm. Sawyers, Rob. Campbell, Saml. Wood, John Mathews, Richd. Woods, John Hays and his son Charles Hays, Saml. Walker, John McCraskey. Alexr. Miller was the first blacksmith in the settlement. One Thomas Taylor married Elizabeth Paxton. Taylor was killed by the falling of a tree shortly after the marriage. Miller removed and his land has been in possession of Telford. Deponent's daughter Mary was born May, 1745. McMullen was also an early settler; he was a school teacher and had a daughter married. John Hays's was the first mill in the grant. Quit rents were not exacted for 2 years at the instance of Anderson, a preacher.

George Holliday, formerly of Glenco, now of Ballegate, Scotland, complains that before 1783 in Scotland, John Henderson, sometimes of Kingshouse in Scotland, at times following droving, became indebted to George, who is his near relative by account from 1781 to 1785. John privately left the Kingdom of Scotland in 1783 and settled in the U. S. Defendants are James Wilson and his wife, Elizabeth, who is administratrix of John Henderson, and who is nearly related to several of the persons mentioned in the account (viz: D. McIntire, A. Cameron, John Scott, Cap. Robert Campbell). Elizabeth was widow of Jno. Henderson. Elizabeth answers that her husband, John Henderson, to whom she was married in 1780, formerly resided in Argyleshire in the Highlands of Scotland, and left that country and took shipping for America, with this defendant, 9th March, 1784. In Scotland she knew George Holliday, who came from the borders of England, was married to a sister of John Henderson and settled about 18 miles from John's place of former residence in Argyleshire, but she is confident it was not in Glenco. George was a farmer and a shepherd. Call McDonald of Dollness, in Argyle, deposes in Edinborough, viz: He knew a John Henderson; his complexion fair, pitted with smallpox, about 5 feet, 7 or 8 inches; well made in person and appearance.

He left Scotland in 1783, clandestinely. George Holliday married a sister of John. Donald Henderson, residing at Leith Walk, near Edinburgh, deposes, 1807: Donald and John were brothers. John married a daughter of Peter or Patrick Campbell; he had a son, Alexander, who lived with his grandfather at the Kingshouse, but went to the West Indies where he died. He had also a daughter named Elizabeth, who lived at the Kingshouse, where she died young. John was son of Angus Henderson.
