Story copied from the following website:

· 1779: "Fauntleroy Dye, an ex-tobacco inspector of Richmond County, had fallen into the hands of the enemy in 1779 and returned home somewhat later with a considerable sum of money, which naturally excited suspicion in the community. Dye, who had become thoroughly tainted during hsi captivity, began to use his influence to persuade his neighbors to resist militia call-ups and to hold private meetings of a doubtful character at his house. Learning this, major Joel, with a party of mounted volunteers, went to Richmond, arrested one Tiffie, "a most notorious promoter of sedition" and surrounded Dye's House, where he took a few armed Tories, who had "in open contempt of the laws of their country, bid defiance to the county lieutenant, and held constant meetings of the disaffected". A court-martial at Leedstown found Dye guilty of giving intelligence to the enemy and encouraging desertion, and sentenced him to prison for the period of the war.


From Ancestry.com Message Boards: http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.dye/1133.1.1.1/mb.ashx
Captain, Fauntleroy Dye found guilty in June 1781 at Leedstown, Virginia. He was age 39 years old when he went to Military Prison. How long did he serve?" Possibly 4 years.

He had been captured by the British and we don't know how long he was held by the British previously.

He had been a Capt. in Virginia at least since 1774. He made Captain the same day as 4 or 5 Fauntleroy men did.

I know he is listed in a book by ECKENRODES "Officers of the Revolution" Fauntleroy (Fantelyroy) Dye

W.K. Johnson.
The public services of Mr.Johnson, the efficient and capable treasurer of Christian County, Mo., have been characterized by a noticeable devotion to the welfare of his county, and his ability and fidelity in his present position have been seen and appreciated by all.
He is a native of Tennessee, born in Grainger county September 22,1837, and is a son of Joshua and Sarah (Dent) Johnson, both natives of Tennessee, the father born in Hawkins and the mother in Grainger county. They came to Christian County, Mo., in 1868, and here both passed the remainder of their days, the mother dying in 1877 and the father in 1881. Both were worthy members of the Missionary Baptist church.

Of the eleven children born to this worthy couple, five are still living: Lavesta, who married, died when twenty years of age; Mariah is a widow and resided in this county; John M. died in Tennessee; Luanna died in Missouri; Thomas died in Christian County; James died when small; G.B. Johnson died while in the army; Amanda married H.H. Roy and is living in Stone County; Tempy married W.C. McCraskey and resides in this county; and Frances, who married A.H. Soloman, also resides in this county.
The Johnsons are descended from an old pioneer family of Tennessee, and the Dents are of Irish extraction.
Our subject remained in Tennessee until 1859, and was there married to Miss Nancy J. Matthews, a native of Hamilton County, Tenn. In the last mentioned year he brought his family to Missouri and located in Christian County, buying land about twelve miles from Ozark. On this he has resided for the most part ever since, but lately he has rented the farm and has resided in Ozark.
In his political views he is an ardent Republican and has ever been interested in the welfare of his party. In the year 1892 he was elected to the responsible position of county treasurer, winning the election by a large majority, and he is now discharging the duties incumbent upon that position. The confidence which the people have in him is almost unbounded, and that he fully deserves their trust, respect and esteem cannot for a moment be doubted. He has always been interested in all public matters, and in all enterprises for the benefit of the county, particularly those relating to education, for he was a teacher for a number of years. Fraternally he is a Mason, a member of Friend lodge No. 352, at Ozark.
On the 7th of March, 1862,Mr. Johnson enlisted in the army and served until April 12, 1865, in the Eighth Missouri State Militia first, and subsequently in the Eighth Missouri Volunteer Cavalry. He participated in the fight at Springfield, in the only fight at Ozark, and in a number of skirmishes, but was never wounded. His service was mainly in Missouri and Arkansas in the Ozark Region. He is now a member of the G.A.R. post at Ozark.
At an early age Mr. Johnson united with the Baptist Church, has been a preacher for twenty-two years, and is well known all over the county. He is one of the few men who passed through the war and came out as strict in his religious views as when he entered.
Ten children were born to his marriage: Sarah, now Mrs. J.C. Erwin, of this county Isabelle, Mrs. D.L Peeblers, of this county; James T. resides on a farm in this county; Robert lives on the old farm; Amy, now Mrs. J.T. Solomon, of this county; Frances, now Mrs. W.T. Frazier, of this county; Savilla, at home; Lula, also at home; and two who died young. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson have fifteen grandchildren. The family holds membership in the Baptist Church, and the sons are all Republicans in politics.

William enlisted in the Pennsylvania Infantry at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. Private PS William Miller was with the 3rd Pennsylvania Brigade, 2nd Division, at Valley Forge, PA, from Dec 1777 to June 1778. His name appears on the Valley Forge Muster Roll Data Sheets under both Captain John Davis' Company and Captain Thomas L. Moore's Company. The 3rd Pennsylvania Brigade, which was organized in January and February of 1776 at Philadelphia, entered Valley Forge with 212 men assigned and 116 fit for duty and left Valley Forge with 194 men assigned and 107 fit for duty. Previous engagements included the defense of Canada, Lake Champlain, Northern New Jersey, the defense of Philadelphia and Philadelphia-Monmouth.


William also served at the Siege of Yorktown in 1781, to within a few days of the surrender of British General Lord Cornwallice, when he received word of the death of his father at Germantown, PA (now a subdivision of Philadelphia). He received a Leave of Absence to attend his father's funeral which was written on a sheet of blue tinted dispatch paper and signed "G. Washington, Commanding, American Forces".

After the war, he married Rachel Art. Several years later, after his mother died, he moved his family to Ohio and settled on the Miami River near Dayton. In 1816, he again moved his family to Illinois, crossing the Wabash River near Vincennes, IN, and settled at Hogues Prairie, near the present site of Russelville, IL. He died there in the Fall of 1818.

According to page 55 of "Pioneer Life in Dayton and Vicinity 1796-1840" by John F. Edgar, 1896, reprinted by Higgonson Book Company. (Higgonsonbooks.com), "John Miller came to Dayton in 1799. He was born in Pennsylvania, 30 December 1766 and died 17 October 1825. After his death, his family moved to Indiana or Illinois".

Page 85 states "The third term of court was held in June, 1804, and the following are extracts from the docket: Came a Grand Jury, to wit: John Gerard, James Gillespie, James Thompson, James Russel, Nathaniel Knotts, James Miller, Sr., Edmond Munger, John Bradford, James Scott, Michael Moyer, John Noop, Shadrach Hudson, and John Mikesell; found no bills".

Page 252 states "As early as 1805 the Rev William Robertson, Dr. John Elliot, William Miller, Benjamin Van Cleve, and John Folkerth secured from the Legislature an act of incorporation for the Dayton Library Association, the first act of the kind passed in Ohio. It was sustained by voluntary subscription and a fine assortment of books was collected for that day; but during 1835, when times were hard and money scarce, the subscriptions failed, and the library was sold at auction from the clerks office on September 12".

Note: John F. Edgar was the son of Robert Edgar, a settler who arrived during Daytons first year (1796). The author personally knew some of the original settlers, and was thus urged to write about the early days for the Dayton, Ohio centennial (1896).


1818 census of Crawford County, IL, found William Miller and nine family members.

Notation on William and Rachael (Art) Miller appears on page 503 of "Portrait and Biographical Album of Coles County, Ill." Chicago: Chapman Brothers, 1887.------------------------------------https://www.daytonhistorybooks.com/page/page/3422169.htm

Montgomery's First Election
January 3, 1820

At this site, in Jonathan Coggswell Farley's store, an election was held to establish Montgomery's first government. The Alabama General Assembly, meeting in the capital at Huntsville, approved an act on December 3, 1819 to combine the communities of New Philadelphia and East Alabama into the new town of Montgomery. Named in the act to conduct and manage the election were Jonathan C. Farley, Walter B. Lucas, Ebenezer D. Washburn and Andrew Dexter.

Elected to the first town council were Nimrod E. Benson, William Graham, Clement Freeney, Ebenezer D. Washburn, John Goldthwaite, Rhodes L. Smith and Daniel Carpenter. They chose Graham as the first intendant (mayor).

Walter B. Lucas proposed that the new town be named for Gen. Richard Montgomery, the Revolutionary War hero.

Jonathan Coggswell Farley

Farley acquired two lots on this site in 1817. Here he build the town's first frame store and first frame two-story building, his house. In Farley's store, an election was held January 3, 1820 to create Montgomery's first governing body. Farley and three others were named in an act of the Alabama General Assembly to conduct and manage this first election.

Farley was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1798. About 1816, he sailed from Portland, Maine to the port of Mobile then proceeded to Ft. Jackson (Toulouse) to establish a trading post. Coming to Montgomery, he opened the town's second store. He served as foreman of the first Grand Jury and, later, moved to a plantation outside town near Cross Keys.

The town's first newspaper, The Montgomery Republican, also occupied his store.
