Captain John Price

1FindaGrave.com, https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/169961294/john-price. ""Captain" John Price was the twelfth child of his father, Pugh Price, and the fifth child of his mother, Jerusha Penick. He was born during 1764 in Prince Edward County, Virginia, near the then Academy of Hampden Sidney, which he was able to attend from his mother's home.

"The records show that John Price served as a private in Captain John Peyton Harrison's Company, Second Virginia Regiment, commanded successively by Colonel Alexander Spottswood and Colonel Christian Febiger, Revolutionary War, date of enlistment not shown. His name is first borne on company pay roll for May, 1777, and last borne on company muster roll for August, 1 1779, date September 6, 1779." - (War Department, Washington,
D. C.)

In 1788 John married Miss Frances Branch of Chesterfield County, Virginia, who gave birth to a son, Daniel Branch Price. After her death John married in 1792 Judith Womack of Cumberland County, who died at the birth of her daughter Elizabeth, August, 1793. In compliance with her dying request the infant was left with Judith's mother, who also took charge of little Daniel while the father went to Kentucky to locate.

John Price first bought eighteen hundred acres of land in Bourbon County, Kentucky, but after paying for it and expending some time and much labor in its improvement he discovered that the title under which he had purchased was imperfect. Henry Clay was his attorney and it was for this service that Clay collected his first large fee. Having lost what he had invested, John Price immediately purchased an improved tract of land in Clark County, Kentucky, lying about six miles west of Winchester. A neighboring plantation was owned by Jacob Fishback, who had removed from Virginia about ten years before, and his daughter Anna became John Price's third wife. They lived happily together * at this home for more than fifty years and there they both died and were buried. Captain John Price was in point of physique, six feet two inches tall, well proportioned but not at all fleshy. He was dressed usually in a blue suit of homespun cloth and wore a high stock. He was noted for his scrupulous honesty, his kindly consideration for his slaves and his love for and interest in his children and grandchildren during his declining years. He died April 2, 1847.

Dr. Robert J. Breckinridge
said of him: "Probably no citizen of Jessamine county was ever more generally
and favorably known, and certainly no one was ever more thoroughly respected. A
man resolute for God's saving truth in proportion as his meek and gentle spirit,
he lived upon it as his life arid soul."." Image.
