General Notes: Husband -
================================================================================

Philip Letsinger - Philip, son of Phillip, was born about 1769, probably in
Frederick County, MD; this date is derived from his second wife's pension
records (which are in the National Archives) in which Philip's doctor states
that Philip was about 70 years of age when he died in 1839.  According to
marriage records of Bedford County, VA, on July 27, 1789, Philip obtained a
bond to marry Ann Pettit, probably a daughter of Lewis Pettit. From the Will
Book 2, page 124, of Bedford County, VA, on January 29, 1791, Philip Letsinger
was a witness to the signing of the will of William Boyd.  At a Court held for
Bedford County on  January 27, 1794, William Boyd's Last Will and Testament was
proved by the oath of Philip Letsinger and other witnesses whose names were
thereunto subscribed.  For the years 1805, 06, 07 and 09, Philip is listed in
"Washington County (TN) List of Taxables".  His name is spelled Phillip
Letsinger, Phillip Letsinger, Philip Letsinger and Phillip Letsinger,
respectively.  Next, in October 1810 in Knox County, TN, marriage records,
Philip was listed as a bondsman.  On April 5, 1823, Philip Ledsinger deeded
land (amount not stated) to Baptist Church Trustees for a Baptist Church and
Graveyard on Hickory Creek, Knox County, TN.  This and the following three land
transactions may be found in "General Index to REAL ESTATE CONVEYANCES, Knox
County, Tenn., from Beginning to Dec 31, 1931."  On November 7, 1826, Philip
Letsinger received 31 acres of land from his son John Letsinger.  On November
6, 1838, Philip obtained a bond in Knox County, TN to marry Elizabeth Shinpock.
On November 10, 1838, Philip Letsinger deeded two tracts of land in Knox County
to Henry Shinpoch (his son-in-law).  Also, on the same date in Knox County,
Philip deeded 100 acres of land to his son David (Daniel) Letsinger.   
According to the pension records of Elizabeth Shinpock Letsinger (her pension
was based on her first husband's (Henry Shinpock) service and death during the
War of 1812), her second husband Philip Letsinger died in June 1839 and was
buried at Hickory Creek Meeting House, Knox County, TN.  Based on census,
marriage and probate records, Philip's children were: Elizabeth Rebecca, John,
Sarah, Mary Alice, Frances, Philip, Susan, Daniel B., Lewis Pettit, Allen, and
Jacob, all by his first wife Ann; there were no known children by his second
wife.  Except for Jacob, all of these named children are known to have grown to
adulthood.  Except for Frances, all of these named children were married. (from
John Shinpaugh)
