DAVID GREENLY enlisted before be was quite eighteen at Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, under Captain Barker, and fought the British at Fort Pike on
Lake Superior, and was also in the battle of Five Points on the river Thames.
He was one of twelve men detailed to shoot the Indian chief, Tecumseh. Once,
while at Fort Pike, he was ordered by Captain Barker to spike a gun and while
in the act a French Canadian struck him over the right eye with a flint lock
gun, the hammer tearing the flesh for three inches over the eye. The Captain
witnessed the affair and shot the French Canadian through the head with a
horse pistol, killing him instantly. There had been a number of pickets shot
on the southern post, which was near a long strip of woods skirting the camp.
It came the turn of a married man, father of five children, to go on this post.
He offered five pounds to any man who would take his place. David accepted
the offer, with the understanding that he could take a spade along. When
asked what he wanted with the spade, he replied, "To dig my grave." He
was young and a favorite, so Captain Barker tried to persuade him not to go.
When he arrived at the post he told the picket to report all well, and he
proceeded to dig a hole near an old tree that was broken off about six feet
above the ground, and got into the hole. Inside of thirty minutes he heard the
rustle of leaves, and saw what he supposed was a big hog, but at last it raised
up about half way and he saw it was an Indian, so he shot at it. At the report
of the gun, the Captain came out and not seeing him cried "Dave is killed."
David then spoke and told the Captain that he had killed an Indian, and they
proceeded to the spot where they had seen the Indian fall. He made an at-
tempt to scalp the Indian, but he was not yet dead and would have killed
David had not the Captain intervened. After his return from the war he
learned the trade of mill-wright, which he followed for a number of years. His
mother having died when he was a baby, he was brought up by his uncle John
Purden, who at his death left him nearly all of his property.

On May 13, 1817, David Greenly gives receipt to Jacob Biddle and John
Adams "my former guardians," for $2,931.50, and interest due $78.65. [Deed
Book R 2, p. 254.]

David Greenly, carpenter, of North west Fork Hundred. Sussex County and
State of Delaware, sells October 10, 1821, to Jesse Green Esq. of same County
and State for $500. part of a tract of land and willed to said Greenlee by his
uncle John Purdon in Mispillon hundred. [Deed Book V 2, p. 42.]

ARCHIBALD GREENLEE, after the death of his mother, lived a year
or so with a kind old neighbor, Isaac Cogle, a Quaker, who had been very
kind to his mother during her sickness. Then he lived with a Scotchman,
Samuel Clark until the latter sold his farm and moved to Indiana. Archibald
had his clothing packed to go with Mr. Clark but his uncle, James Greenlee,
would not allow him to go. He then went to live with William Workman and
remained with him until he was fourteen years old, then went to St. Clairs-
rille and became an apprentice to learn the cabinet-making trade. He re-
mained there six years, and after finishing his trade he went to Wheeling, West
Virpinia and did journey work for four months. His brother William had
moved to Washington, Guernsey County, Ohio, and started a hat shop so Archi-
bald went there and united with him in carrying on that trade. Having re-
ceived some money from his father's estate, he built, a brick dwelling in which
his brother lived, he boarding with him. They then bought a dry goods store
and continued both that and the hat shop for some time, until it was thought
best to dissolve partnership. William took the house and lot and Archibald
took the store. He had, however, prior to this time, started a hat shop
in Norwich, Muskingum County, Ohio, in connection with his cousin Andrew
