You may already have most of this, but if not, it may help locate your James VZ.

Garrett Van Zandt, Jr. was a Rev War veteran who, according to several sources, served in both the NC Militia and the Continental Line. He supposedly took part in the Battle of Ramsours Mill in Lincoln Co. NC and the Battle ofCowpens. He was also listed as captured and confined in Lincoln Co. NC. A Rutherford Co. NC marriage bond states that he married Margaret Smith [Caldwell] in 1782, and there is some information from a Smith Estate file in North Carolina records that states that he was also married to Elizabeth Smith, Margaret's sister. Garrett also apparently received a Rev War land grant in Washington Co. TN in 1782, but he may not have occupied this land, as a 1782 Rutherford Co. Tax list refers to "Capt. Vinzants Company" as one of the tax districts. Garrett Van Zant was recorded as purchasing land in Rutherford Co. NC in 1784, 1787 & 1788 on the First Broad River. Traditionally, he and Margaret left Rutherford Co. in 1794 and moved to Barren Co. KY. Garrett is on the Barren Co. KY tax roll for 1800 and he purchased land in that county in 1801.
