John Piper Sr and his background
Posted by: Herbert Englishman (ID *****8823) Date: September 09, 2008 at 12:17:05

I am trying to locate the background of John Piper, Sr
an Ulster Scott who came to America through the Port of Philadelphia. He was born in Scotland/Ireland around 1730-35 was probably Presbyterian, came to Orange County via
Virginia?, down the Philadelphia Wagon Road into the Eno River area. Settled down eventually had 9 slaves, was a farmer, may have worked in a local gristmill. A his death in 1798 around October he had 525 acres of land, built a
two room cabin on the Eno (now Eno River State Park)
I can find his will, property records, land grants, etc
but nobody has his early history (birth, Country of Origin,
name of wife )
Any family out there who has information . Have been told later generations destroyed early family records
Contact me at 919-308-1312 if you have any leads
