"Jeremiah Frame was a native of Virginia and a soldier under General Washington in the Revolutionary War. He was detailed to return to Washington’s plantation to oversee the farm work. After the war he moved to Kentucky, where he was a slaveholder in that state. He became disgusted with slavery and left his slaves and came to Ohio, locating on the farm where the subject lives. Here he built a log cabin and, all in all, entered eight other farms, none of which was less than a quarter of a section. He gave each of his nine children a farm. In his day Jeremiah Frame was a prominent man. He was a strict Presbyterian. Mr. Frame died in 1828, after having been in Ohio twelve years."Biographical Sketch (1999):1585, p. 1.

"Settlers in the neighborhood of Staunton gathered under the command of Charles Lewis, a brave and dashing officer, the idol of the army. Fourteen companies, captained by their natural leaders, arrived first at the appointed rendezvous — Camp Union (Lewisburg, West Virginia), on the Big Levels of the Greenbrier; their campfires furnished a beacon for the tardier troops from Botetourt and Fincastle. Every man in one company of Augusta troops was said to measure above six feet in his moccasins. Col. Andrew Lewis being in general command, placed his particular division under the charge of Col. William Fleming, a skillful surgeon, an a man of culture, whose popularity with his men was unbounded."1774 Dunmore’s War:1103, p. xvii.
, an experienced Indian fighter, had served throughout the French and Indian War side by side with Washington, and knew all the bordermen with whom he had to deal. Already, upon the receipt of previous orders from the governor (sent July 12) he had hastened expresses to his brother Charles,
county-lieutenant for Augusta — embracing the central valley of Virginia, and its neighborhood west and north — and to his friend Preston, in Fincastle, to prepare for an expedition to the Indian towns, as the surest method of ‘reducing our inveterate enemies to reason’."1774 Dunmore’s War:1104, p. .
"Andrew Lewis was the eldest son and most experience soldier in the Southern counties, and to him, Lord Dunmore issued orders from his headquarters at ‘Greenway Court,’ in Frederick County, under date of July 24th, saying: ‘I desire you to raise a respectable Boddy of men and join me either at the mouth of the grate Kanaway or Whailen (Wheeling) as is most convenient for you. Forward this letter to Colonel William Preston with the gretest Dispatch as I want his assistance, as well as that of your Brother, Charles Lewis. I need not inform you how necesary dispatch is’."
1774 Dunmore’s War:1103, p. 74-75.
"Colonel Charles Lewis, youngest son of the Augusta pioneer, John Lewis, was born (1733) after the arrival of the family in Virginia.

He was captain of a company under his borther, Maj. Andrew Lewis, and Col. George Washington, which advanced for the defense of the frontier after Braddock’s defeat. A copy of the journal written by Charles Lewis during this campaign is in Draper MSS., 18U. Charles Lewis was first lieutenant in Captain Preston’s ranging company in West Augusta (1757-59), and during Pontiac’s War (1763) pursued, overtook, and defeated a native raiding aprty on the South Fork of the Potomac. He is known to have been out with Bouquet in 1764, but based his claims for land upon his services as a ranger (Draper MSS., 2QQ153. These lands were located in Kentucky, and were part of his heirs’ inheritance. As county-lieutenant for Augusta, he led its trops to the Point Pleasant campaign, where he was killed in the battle. His words, when he fell, are said to have been, ‘Push on, boys. Don’t mind me.’ (Draper MSS., 1R75). Charles Lewis was popular, and beloved by all the Western army; his loss was a general afflliction. He left five small children, whose descendants still live in the Valley of Virginia."1774 Dunmore’s War:1103, p. 331.
"Capt. George Moffatt had had previous experience in Indian warfare. Born in 1735, he was but a young lad when his father disappeared, previous to 1749, on a journey to South Carolina, and was believed to have been killed by the Indians. In 1763 George was captain of a ranging company which was ambushed in pursuing Indians, and lost fifteen men. The next year he pursued a party of savages that had killed his step-father, John Trimble, and made captive his sister and half-brother. In this action he successfully rescued the prisoners. Several of the officers on the campaign of 1774 were his relatives — Col. William Chrisitan was his uncle, and Capt. Samuel McDowell his brother-in-law. During the Revolution in the South, he took an active part, commanding a regiment at Guilford Court House, and acting as a county-lieutenant of Augusta, 1781-83. He died at his home in Augusta County, about eight miles northwest of Staunton, in 1811."1774 Battle of Point Pleasant:1104, p. 26.
"One company did not wait for another, but as speedily as orgnaized, repaired to Camp Union, the place of general rendezvous. Captain John Stuart’s company of Greenbrier Valley men arrived August 1st — the first at Camp Union. Then came Captain John Dickinson’s company from the valley of the Cowpasture and Jackson’s rivers; Captains Alexander McClennahan and George Matthews arrived with their companies from Staunton; the company of Captain Andrew Lockridge came from Bullpasture River, now in Highland County; Captain John Lewis (son of Thomas) and Captain Benjamin Harrison reported with their companies from that part of Augusta, now included in Rockingham County; Captains George Moffatt and Samuel McDowell came with their companies from Southern Augusta — that part now included in Rockbridge County."1774 Dunmore’s War:1103, p. 414.
