  • Notes 
    • Also Vachel Hinton.

      Revolutionary War, Virginia militia. (Probably/possibly).

      A Vachel Hinton who may be this one is listed on the DAR's web site as DAR Ancestor # A055453, with the following information:

      Service: VIRGINIA
      Rank: PRIVATE
      Birth: CIRCA 1737 MARYLAND
      Death: ANTE 7-4-1825 FLEMING CO KENTUCKY
      Service Source: GWATHMEY, HIST REG OF VA IN THE REV, P 380 [*]
      Service Description: 1) ENSIGN WILLIAM COLVIN, MILITIA
      Residence: VIRGINIA
      Spouse: (1) MARGARET X (2) NANCY ROY

      Note: GWATHMEY, HIST REG OF VA etc. would have to be John H. Gwathmey, Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution, 1775–1783, first published 1938, reprinted by the Genealogical Publishing Company of Baltimore in 1979.

      Alternately, Henry C. Peden, Jr., Marylanders to Kentucky 1775-1825, p.72 (Westminister, MD: Heritage Books, 2006) says that "Vachel (Vitchel) HINTON was a native of Maryland and served in the Revolutionary War in Washington County, Pennsylvania."

      Diana Gale Matthiesen says: "Please note that I believe the Vachel HINTONs are mixed up, in part because there are more of them than supposed--there are at least seven--and that I have not got them sorted out yet. I believe there is a possibility that the Vachel HINTON who married Margaret [HOWARD?] is not the same Vachel HINTON who married Mrs. Nancy ROY because census records show the latter to have been born after 1765 while the former was born ca. 1737. However, other records suggest there was only one Vachel HINTON in the county at this time, so the census record may be in error. I think we should keep an open mind to the possibility that these are two different Vachel HINTONs."
