  • Note:
    Samuel McGaughey's cabin used as a meeting place...later became Rock Springs Presbyterian Church, which was the first Presbyterian Church in North Alabama.

    Samuel was living with his parents, William and Margaret, in the for when the American Revolution began. When his father was called out for military service against the Indians on Clinch River in the Spring of 1778, Samuel, age 15, substituted for his father and served under Captain John Shelby. He served in the same capacity in August 1778 under Captain James Mongomery. On March 1, 1779 he volunteered for service in his own name. The pension record shows he served 12 months as a private in the North Carolina and Virginia Militia; 4 months as Lieutenant; and was promoted to Captain in 1781. At this same time his son George Washington McGaughy was born, and the camp kettle incident occurred. His total time of military service appears in the record as 35 months. He states that he was in the battle of Tiger River, Pacolat River, Eutaw Springs, and Kings Mountain.
    At 55 years of age, with his entire family, except for two daughters who had married in Greenville and his son John, he joined his two brothers in Maury County for the long trek to Alabama, going by way of Natchez Trace, which opened in 1806, and over the Tennessee River at the present day Muscle Shoals. He at last arrived at the fertile, rolling lands of Lawrence County, Alabama.
