A SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF COL. ROBERT McFARLAND THE SECOND, FOR WHOM THIS CHAPTER IS NAMED

THE ROBERT MCFARLAND CHAPTER, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION, AT THE ANNUAL MEETING MARCH 25TH, 1918 VOTED UNANIMOUSLY TO DESIGNATE MARCH 15TH, WHICH IS THE BIRTHDAY ANNIVERSARY OF COL. ROBERT MCFARLAND, AS THE ANNUAL MEETING DATE OF THIS CHAPTER, IN MEMORY OF THE ONLY OFFICER OF THE REVOLUTION WHOSE REMAINS REST IN HAMBLEN COUNTY SOIL, HE HAVING BEEN BURIED ON THE OLD PLANTATION NEAR SPRINGVALE, TENNESSEE.

COL. ROBERT MCFARLAND WAS A BOY OF SEVENTEEN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND RODE BY HIS FATHER'S SIDE TO THE BATTLE OF KING'S MOUNTAIN.

HE WAS BORN IN THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY IN VIRGINIA, MARCH 15TH, 1759 AND DIED FEBRUARY 5TH, 1837. HE MARRIED MARGARET MCNUTT, THE FIRST WHITE CHILD BORN SOUTH OF THE FRENCH BROAD RIVER. HIS FATHER WAS AN OFFICER IN THE COLONIAL ARMY AND FATHER AND SON WERE PIONEERS IN THE WATAUGA SETTLEMENT. HE WAS THE FATHER OF COL. ROBERT MCFARLAND THE THIRD, WHO SERVED HIS COUNTRY IN THE WAR OF 1812. HIS GRANDSON, COL. ROBERT MCFARLAND THE FOURTH, SERVED WITH THE CONFEDERATE ARMY IN THE CIVIL WAR AND WAS AFTERWARD JUDGE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF TENNESSEE AND LIVED IN MORRISTOWN.

SIR JOHN MCFARLAND, OF ARROUQUAH, SCOTLAND, BORN THERE IN 1708 AND WHO CAME TO VIRGINIA IN 1746, WAS THE AMERICAN HEAD OF THIS FAMILY AND THE GRANDFATHER OF ROBERT MCFARLAND, THE SECOND.

WILLIAM CALLOWAY'S LIST OF LOYAL AMERICANS GIVES HIS NAME AND OATH OF ALLEGIANCE TO VIRGINIA.

THE OLD PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN AUGUSTA COUNTY, VIRGINIA, IN WHICH SR. JOHN WAS AN ELDER, IS STANDING TODAY.

THIS HISTORY IS GIVEN AS THE REASON WHY THIS CHAPTER IS NAMED THE ROBERT MCFARLAND CHAPTER, SONS OF THE REVOLUTION.

TAKEN FROM THE MINUTE BOOK OF ROBERT MCFARLAND CHAPTER.
