Notes

HISTORY: Velten Van Hoesen or Valentine (Felty) Van Hooser, chr 16 Jan 17 26 at Claverack, Albany (now Columbia), NY; md 22 Dec 1746 Maria Barbar a Zerwe or Zerbe; SOURCE: Van Hooser Family of the United States, by Joyc e Lindstrom, page 11; RESEARCH: Sherry Smith.

HISTORY: When he was two years old, he migrated with his parents to Tulpe hocken Lancaster (now Berks) Co, Pennsylvania. There he grew up in Heidel burg Township in the vicinity of what is now called Robesonia. He lived i n a predominately German community, since his mother, aunts and uncles we re also of that nationality.
On the 22 of Dec 1746 he married Maria Barbara Zerwe or Zerbe at Tul pehocken, Lancaster (now Berks), Pennsylvania. They were married in the G erman Lutheran Church by the Lutheran minster, Johan Caspar Stoever.
On the 5th of March 1750 he took out a land grant for fifty acres i n Philadelphia (now Berks) Co, Penns. The land adjoined that of Richard B rasier and James Boone, uncle to the celebrated and well known Daniel Boo ne. While he was improving this land, the family lived in Tulpehocken tow nship where his first four children was baptized.
Valentine disappears from Pennsylvania records after 1751 and it i s my belief that he was enticed by the Boone Family and other surroundin g neighbors to move to North Carolina. So he deserted his land grant in w hat later became Oley Township, Berks, Pa. and traveled via Virginia's Bi g Valley to North Carolina. Valentine is listed among the taxpayers in Ro wan Co., NC in 1759, 1761, and 1768.
In 1771 Surry County was created and the Van Hooser family found the mselves living in a new county, though they hadn't moved. Deeds of Rowa n and Surry Cos. reveal that Valentine was a shrewd businessman.
Each piece of property he purchased, he sold for a profit. For examp le, on January 1, 1763 he purchased 159 1/4 acres from Solomon Sparks fo r thirty pounds and sold it October 10, 1765 to Samuel Jones for one hund red pounds---a profit of seventy pounds.
About 1771 Valentine sold his land in Surry Co., NC and moved to Vir ginia, settling just across the border in what was then Fincastle (now Ca rroll) Co., Va. He lived there for about four years before moving to th e North Fork of the Clinch River in what is now Tazewell Co., Va. Accordi ng to Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Augusta Co., Va by Cha lkey, Vol.11, pp. 227-8, Valentine and his oldest son, John took up lan d in that area, but only lived there two years before they were driven ou t by Indian uprisings. They returned to their former piece of land whic h was located along New River and Little Reed Island which was then in Mo ntgomery Co., which became Wythe Co. in 1789/90 and Grayson Co. in 1792 a nd finally Carroll Co. in 1842.
According to law suits brought about by his son, Jacob Van Hooser, V alentine was a wealthy man. He owned lots of land and had quite a few Neg ro slaves. However, when the Revolutionery War broke out, Valentine was l oyal to the British and became a known Tory. He took up arms against th e colonists and fought for Genral Cornwallis, dying in the year 1781 at o ne of the last two battle Cornwallis fought in--the Guilford Co., North C arolina County court house, or at Yorktown, Virginia, where Cornwallis su rrendered. Hence, the reason why there's no will or probate records for V alentine Van Hooser.
According to the book, Early Adventures on Western Waters Vol. 1 b y Mary B Kegly, p. 140, on September 7, 1779 a complaint was brought befo re the court against Valentine Vanhouser for "enlisting Soldiers for th e King of Great Britain and maintaining the Authority of said king." Onc e he was heard in court, the court decided he should be bound over to app ear at the next court, but had to give security for himself for 500 pound s to make sure he appeared at the next court. In 1781 most of his propert y was confiscated and his slaves were sold at public auction; SOURCE: Va n Hooser Family of the United States, by Joyce Lindstrom, page 237-238; R ESEARCH: Sherry Smith.
