      From his obit in Dubuque Co., IA paper.
      (For ease of reading, Donna Clark revised spacing, capitalization, and punctuation from this partial obit as it appeared at World Connect):
      William Haggard Sr., the subject of this notice, was born in Albemarle Co., VA, on the 7 of Aug 1753 and died near Lancaster, KY on the 23rd of July 1852- age 98 years old. Soon after the close of the Revolutionary War, in which the deceased had served three campaigns, he visited the then wilderness of Kentucky, to view "the dark and bloody ground," and afterwards, in 1794 removed permanently with his family to that state. He had living at the time of his decease, six children, thirty-eight grandchildren, one hundred and forty-nine great-grandchildren, and a number of great-great-grandchildren. During the last twenty years of his life, he enjoyed a pension from the government. To but few men are allotted so many years, and even of that small number, few, comparatively speaking, have to the last been so highly blessed by the possession of their physical and mental faculties. This venerable man, we understand, continued to work in his garden and attend to various matters of business up to a period within three weeks of his death, and appeared to retain the possession of his mental faculties and was entirely conscious of approaching dissolution, until within a few moments of his last breath.

      "William Haggard... was born August 7, 1753, in Albemarle county, Virginia, and after marriage settled in Caswell county, North Carolina *, and from there moved to Kentucky and settled in Garrard county, near Lancaster, in 1794, where he spent the remainder of his life. He died on the 23rd of July, 1852, aged 98 years, 11 months, and 16 days. He served three campaigns in the Revolutionary war. The last twenty years of his life he received a pension from the government. He was a preacher, a teacher of schools, and a miller as well as a soldier.

      On 20 Aug 1832 he applied for a pension. In it he stated that he entered the service in the then County of Orange (afterwards a part of it made Caswell County) in the state of N.C. as a drafted militia man under Wm Hubbard in the year 1776 for the term of three months. His 1st Col. was named Ramsey. 2nd Col. named Wm Moore and Person was his General. He was marched thru Roan Co and several other counties in N. C. and crossed the Atbin ? River near Salsbury and the Catawba at Sherod Ford. That afterward was marched back and discharged at Hillsborough in N. C.

      That sometime afterward he volunteered in the Militia in the state of Va. in the county of Bedford for 3 months. His Captain was Thomas Dooley. He was marched to Williamsburg and was attached to Col. Masons Command until discharged in 1777.

      He was again drafted in 1780 for 3 months and he believes that it was in N. C. in the Co. of Orange under Cap James Wilson and believes his Col was Wm Moore. His general was Wm Davidson. He was marched to Salsbury and then to the Six Mile Creek at the Camp of New Providence.

      In 1782 again drafted in Orange Co., N. C. for 3 months and his Captain was Fredrick Debo-. Major was McCallan. Designated to guard the Legislature of N.C. and the general court at Hillsborough (Orange Co.).

      His claim was allowed and he received $40/year.

      One of the men who gave a deposition for him stated the following:

      Richard Oldham, a resident of Madison Co., Ky, age 70 states that he is personally acquainted with William Haggard, a resident of Garrard Co., Ky and has been acquainted with him for at lest sixty years. He states that he served a tour of 3 months with said Haggard in 1780. He then heard Haggard speak of a tour of duty he served previously in the year 1776 as well as he now recollects under Capt. Wm Hubbard. He further states that himself and Haggard were raised in Caswell County, North Carolina and within about 3 or 4 miles of each other and resided in the same county at the time they entered the service.

      Madison Co., Ky, 9 Oct 1832-Isaac Lainhart made oath that he knows that William Haggard went out under Capt Thos Dooley from the state of Va, Bedford Co. and served at the same time that the said Isaac Lainhart did which be believes was in 1777. The said Isaac Lainhart is 70 years old."
