One ^James Caruthers and his wife lived in Scotland.
Tradition says they went to the north of Ireland during
the unsettled, troubled times in Scotland, in the early
part of the eighteenth century. Four of their cliildren
emigrated to the Colony of Pennsylvania in the year
1765. There may liave been others, of which there is
no account given,

Mohn, -Sarah, ^James and ^Andrew Caruthers settled
first in Carlysle County, Pennsylvania. It is thought
that John and Eobert Caruthers, who came to the
Colony of Pennsylvania about the same time, and after-
wards moved to North Carolina, were uncles to the four
who came in 1765, but this is not authentic.

^John Caruthers, brother to ^Sarah, ^James and
^Andrew, was in the French and Indian Wars, and was
severely wounded in one engagement. He afterwards
held an important position under the Provincial Gov-
ernor of Pennsylvania. His children were: ^Mary,
^Isabella, 'Sarah and ^Eleanor Carothers. Many of
tlie name live in Pennsylvania and all over the Western

^James and ^Andrew Caruthers were twins, so much
alike that their mother could only distinguish one from
the other by looking on the forehead of one for a small
mark just in the edge of his hair. They married sisters.
-James Caruthers married Nancy Neely, and ^Andrew
Caruthers married Margaret Neely. The descendants
of these twin brothers are the only ones we can trace
for moi-e than one generation.

After coming to America they changed the spelling
of their name to Carothers, through the influence of a
school teacher who lived in the family and taught the
children. The two who went to North Carolina at an
early day, Eobert and John, spelled their name Caruth-
ers, dropping one "r."

^James Carothers, born 1739, was in the French and
Indian Ware, and fought bravely in the Colonial Army.


He was in General Armfltrong's command at the battle
of Kiltaining Point

He married Nancy Neelj, about 1767, in Adams
County, Pennsylvania- They had five children, and
lived on tlie Juniatta Biver, near Mount Union, Hunt-
ingdon County, Pennsylvania, on a farm called "The
Loop." His wife, Nancy Noely Carothers, died in 1776.
He then married Abigail Henderson, of Baltimore, Md.,
where her family still reside. They had nine children.
Later he lived near Shirleysburg, in the above-named
county. He had fourteen children by the two wiv^.
The first wife's children were:

^Sarah, married Archibald Henderson.

*James, married Mary Fitzsimons, of South Caro-
lina, in 1800 (her mother was a Miss Randel), and
they had seven children, namely: *Nancy, married
Andrew Froman; ^Patrick, born in 1802, and mar-
ried Betsy Barr; they had a son, ^Robert Carothers,
who lived in Cincinnati, Ohio, and he had a son, ^Thomas
P. Carothers, a lawyer living in Newport, Ky., in the
year 1900. ^Sarah, married James Carothers. Her
brother, *James H. Carothers, married Mary Carothers;
they had one son, '^Neely Carothers, of Kenton, Ohio.

follows: Majnes, ^Davis, *Sarah (married a Mr. Alex-
ander), *Abraham, v*Maria (married a Mr. Mapleton),
*Anne (married a Mr. Gollaher) and *Samuel Carothers.

I have given the five children and their descendants
of James Carothers and Nancy Neely, his wife, and will
now give those of his second wife, Abigail Henderson,
nine in number:

had five children, namely: *James, ^William, ^Hannah,
*Nancy and ^Duncan Carothers.

had one *son.

The above is all that I have been able to collect in
regard to Ihe Carothers, Hope, Meek and Adams fam-
ilies of this immediate branch.

Cabuthers. — I will now give a sketch of another
branch of the Caruthers family, who also settled in
Pennsylvania, and later removed to North Carolina.
They sjjelled their name "Caruthers."

Among the "Black Boys" of Mecklenburg County,
North Carolina, who destroyed the powder of General
Waddell during the Kegulation War, which took place
five years before the Declaration of Independence,
there were two brothers concerned, but on opposite
sides ; they were Robert and James Caruthers. Robert
is said to have made the train for blowing up the kegs
of powder; amidst the hurry and bustle of their prep-
arations for the explosion, James recognized his brother
Robert, notwithstanding the lampblack on his face,
and in a low voice, which was not heard by any one
else, said to him, "You'll rue this, Bob." Robert an-
swered, "Hold your tongue, Jim,'' and went on with his

Robert Caruthers, who was one of the Regulators
before the troubles really assumed a belligerant attitude
between England and the Colonies, was a partisan
officer during the Revolutionary War, and a man of
great courage and enterprise.

The foregoing is taken from the "Old North State"
(North Carolina) in 1776, by Rev. Eli W. Caruthers,
page 37.

Mrs. Margaret Caruthers was doubtless the wife of
Robert Caruthers, though it is not distinctly stated in
the book; tradition says Robert Caruthers married
Margaret Gillespie before they moved from Lancaster
County, Pennsylvania, to North Carolina, and it was
their sons who were in the Revolution of 1776.

This Robert Caruthers is thought by some to have
been the uncle of ^Andrew Carothers, who married
Margaret Neely in Pennsylvania and moved to North
Carolina before the Revolutionary War. 'Robert
Caruthers and his wife, Margaret Gillespie, were among
the first settlers of the middle region of North Carolina.


They had five sons and several daughters. All were
respectable citizens and consistent meuibcrs of the
church. During the Eevohitiou, three of the sons were
in the service of their country. The eldest son, 'Kobert
Caruther.«!, was an officer with the commission of Cap-
tain, lie was a very active, enterprising officer, and
almost constantly on duty. The youngest son of the
family was kept at home to protect his parents and
sisters and to attend to the farm. Re was killed by
some Tories disguised as Indians. The report of a gun
was heard near the house; the mother and daughters
immediately went out to see Avhat it was, and found the
youngest son on the bank of a creek near by, dead,
with his scalp taken off, and a bloody knife lying on
the ground by his head with which the deed was done.
This knife had the name of a neighbor cut on the handle,
and it was supposed in the agitation of the moment,
arising from the fear of detection, and remorse of a
guilty conscience, he had forgotten the knife. The
other sons were all away in the army, and the father
was too old for military duty. He was born about
1715 or 1720; but it is supposed that he was away from
home at this time with an armed body of Whigs, trying
to protect the border settlements from the barbarities
of the Tories and Indians, as the mother and daughters
were without a protector. This is also from "The Old
North State," by E. W. Caruthers.

From the foregoing it will be seen that at the time
of the Kevolution, ^Robert Caruthers and his wife,
Margaret Gillespie, were perhaps fifty-five or sixty
years of age, and that they were born about 1715 or
1720. Their eldest son, ^Kobert, was perhaps thirty or
thirty-five years of age, as he was the eldest of five sons
and several daughters, the youngest son being old
enough to take charge of the farm, and all of the daugh-
ters had left the parental roof except one or two.

The Kev. E. W. Caruthers says the Caruthers who
married Margaret Gillespie was James, others of the
descendants say that it was ^Robert, and his wife, Mar-
garet Gillespie, w^ho moved from Lancaster County,
Pennsylvania, to North Carolina before the Revolution.

The above-named ^Robert Caruthers and his \rife


were the ancestors of Judges Abram and Eobert Ca-
ruthers, of Lebanon, Tenu. Both Avere men of dis-
tinction in their State.

As above stated, it is thought that this Robert Ca-
ruthers was the uncle of James and Andrew Carothers,
twins, who married Nancy and M^argaret Neely, sisters.

-James Carothers and his descendants remained in
Pennsylvania, while -Andrew Carothers went to
Cabarrus County, North Carolina, before the Revo-
lution, and later to South Carolina.

^Rol)ert Caruthere, born about 1715, married Mar-
garet Gillespie, in Scotland, it is supposed. He, with
his two brothers, ^James and ^John Caruthers, settled
in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, with their families,
upon arriving in America. ^Robert and ^John removed
to Middle North Carolina before the Revolution of 1776.
^James remained in Pennsylvania, but one of his sons,
^Andrew, moved to Cabarrus County, North Carolina,
also before the Revolution. His history and that of his
brother ^James has been given in the foregoing pages.
^John Caruthers, brother of 'Robert, had one son called
Jockey ^John Caruthers, and he a son, ^Elias Caruthers,
of Cabarrus County, North Carolina.

'Robert Caruthers and his wife, Margaret Gillespie,
had two daughters and five sons, as follows: -Robert,
^Sarah, Mohn, -James, a daughter, -William and -Sam-
uel Caruthers. Margaret Gillespie had two brothers.
Col. John Gillespie and Daniel Gillespie. Colonel John
was in the Revolution of 1776.

^Robert, the eldest son of 'Robert and Margaret Gil-
lespie Caruthers, married Elizabeth Patillo in North
Carolina. He was a Captain in the Continental Army;
was wounded on the head at the Battle of Kings Moun-
tain, and had a large scar from this wound. See ''Kings
Mountain and Its Heroes," by Draper. He moved from
Burke County, North Carolina, to Columbia, Tenn., in
1812, and died there in 1828. He left four children,
namely : 'Robert, ^Mary, 'Susan and 'Elizabeth

had six children, namely : ^Sarah H., *Robert, *Jaraes,
