(How many fourths one can fit into a whole is left to our imagination!)

From Roger Rice Landers:

DOB: About 1738. The NSDAR Record Copy of Application # 704327 by MaryCuzzort Clipp for John Landis (dated Oct 1984) shows the DOB of John(Landis) Landers to be abt. 1720. This is believed to be an error forthe following reasons:

1. The date of death is shown as 1825 (NSDAR # 704327). If this is true,John Landers was 105 years old at the time of his death. While this ispossible, it is not probable.

2. John Landers was the son of John Landers and Frances. The will ofFrances Landress (Landers) list the following children: John, Abraham,Joseph, Jacob and daughters Mary and Betty, NC Archives, Granville CountyWills, Box 044.801.24, 5 June 1769.

3. John Landers and Frances Landers are major purchasers of personalproperty at the Estate Sale of John Landers, as was Andrew Hampton,recorded in Granville County Court September 1757 (Estate Records of JohnLanders, NC Archives, Granville County Estate Records Box 44.508.109,John Landers 1757).

4. The Muster Roll of the Regiment in Granville County, under the Commandof Col. William Eaton, 8 October 1754, Captain Andrew Hampton’s Companylist the following: John Landres, Sergeant; John Landres, Junr. (StateRecords of North Carolina, Vol. XXII, page 370, 379-380)

5. John Landers, Jr's age is estimated as follows: In 1754 John Landers,Jr. was in the militia. In order to serve he had to be at least sixteenyears old (The Source by Szucs and Luebking, page 209-210). 1754-16=1739.

DOD: Before May 1825; Will of John Landers 8 November 1824, Inventory 11June 1825, recorded in May Court 1825.


Wife: Mary Paris: DOB: abt 1730-40 (NSDAR # 704327)

LAND owned by John Landers (Jr). In 1757 John Landers inherited(?) fromhis father 238 acres on both sides of the Tar River. In 1779 John Landishobtained a grant of land containing 48 acres on the Tar River (Grant #164, Book40, p.221). In 1782 he sold 146 acres to John Potter (GranvilleCo. NC Deed Bk. O p. 193. (Note: the land described in this deed isidentical to a portion of the land purchased by John Sr. on the northside of the Tar River).

On the remaining land, 140 acres was taxed consistently to John Landersuntil 1822. The 140 acres was in the possession of Mary Landers in theTar River district as of 1825 (Granville Co.

There was another John Landers living in the lower part of BedfordCounty, TN, at about this same time ("our" John was in the northernpart). He married Susannah Harmon, and one son is known as Henry HarmonLanders, brother of Christopher Landers/Landis. This family is mentionedoften in the Compendium of American Genealogy.
