Garret Van Meter was a Colonel in the Revolutionary War and Commanded a Regiment of Milita in General George Washington's Army. Colonel Garret and his Wife Ann Markee were the first supporters of religion among the Pioneers of that day in that country . They lived and died In Fort Pleasent. They had other children, but they didnÕt live to be grown and their names are unknown.

Garrett amassed a fortune in cattle and horses and eventually built the house we now know as "Fort Pleasant". Isaac was buried on this land. We were able to go through the eighteen-room mansion. Nothing has been added to it since Garrett's death. The foundations and walls are of brick with rises above the cellar from a brick base. The show rooms are large with many-paned high windows. Fireplaces throughout the house have refined Federal mantels and openings large enough for logs. The rooms have no cornices but each had a chair rail. The floors are polished pine. In the front hall, a restrained and plain Federal staircase runs curving to the attic. On one of the walls was a picture of Isaac.


We are about to dedicate a Pennsylvania State Historical Marker to commemorate our town's rescue of a young fugitive slave, Anthony HOLLINGSWORTH, from slavecatchers.(actually his master, Garrett VAN METER (Senior's) brother-in-law William Streit CUNNINGHAM and Robert TILDEN who would be Hardy's Clerk of Court in the 1850's.) The Hollingsworth family still lives in Keyser.
We have never been able to locate the farm of Garrett Van Meter Senior but one will suggests that he owned some land along Patterson's Creek. I've seen Garrett Jr's house, but he was a cousin--a son of Jacob Van Meter. Garrett Jr. became Garrett Sr after Garrett Sr died--then Garrett's son Garrett became Garrett Jr. (Ha ha--sort that out.) Garrett Jr II, son of Garrett Sr. was Sally Cunningham's son. I believe that Sally must have died in childbirth because she died in 1836, the year Garrett Jr. was born. He was 14 in the 1850 census. Garrett Sr. married a woman named Ann D. for whom he erected a very nice flat top grave memorial with a Biblical verse. However, he is buried down the hill next to Sally and an infant. I am told that this Garrett was called One Eyed Garrett Van Meter. His father was Isaac Van Meter whose 1832 mansion still stands at Old Fields. There is a good chance that Anthony Hollingsworth was born in the quarters in back of that house that was razed or fell down in the 30's. There is a remaining photograph. We would like to know the location of Garrett Van Meter, Sr.'s house, can you help? E-mail: chriscat@ptdprolog.net

Served as Colonel in Virginia Militia in American Revolution. DAR Patriot Index, p. 701 (1966). Wife's name as listed in DAR Patriot Index, and also will recorded in Hardy County, VA, July 7, 1788, lists wife Ann, and children Isaac, Jacob, and Ann Seymour.
VanMeter Family Bible lists Jacob VanMeter as son of Garret VanMeter.
Names and dates of birth of children from vol 59 Nat'l Genealogical Society Quarterly, p. 35.

Many sources indicate that Col. Garrett's place of birth was New York;  my guess since his father and mother had moved to Salem New Jersey in the 1710s, that its more likely he was born in New Jersey than in New York, absent any other proof to the contrary.

East of the Alleghanies in what is now Hardy, Grant, and Pendleton counties, a tory plot came to a head when it was believed that Cornwallis would subdue Virginia and drive the patriot armies out. The center of the plot was near Petersburg in Grant county. It is said that a number of the tories implicated in the trouble lived twenty miles above there at Upper Tract, and that some came from Moonfield river, along the base of the Shenadoah mountains. The first intimation of rebellion appeared when they refused to pay their taxes or contribute to Hampshire's quota of men to be raised for the army. Colonel Van Meter with thirty militia was sent from Old Fields to enforce the payment of taxes. Fifty tories armed themselves and assembled at the house of John Brake, a German, and declared that they would resist the demands by force and arms. Colonel Van Meter, who knew most of the tories personally, marched his men to meet them, but instead of a fight there was a parley. The leader of the militia attempted to convince them by argument that they were in the wrong and must ultimately suffer for it, but they had the best of the argument, as it would seem, for the militia went home and left them in arms and defiant. The fact probably was, Colonel Van Meter saw that he was not strong enough to fight them successfully, and he retired to make better preparation.
They thought themselves victorious and became more insolent and defiant than before. They organized a company, elected John Claypole their captain, and prepared to march off and join Cornwallis as soon as he arrived within reach of them. They seemed to be fairly well posted on the movements of the British army which at that time was threatening lower Virginia. General Daniel Morgan of the Continental army happened to be at that time in Frederick county, some sixty miles distant. Learning that the tories had organized a military company he thought it time he took a hand. He collected 400 militia and did not open parley with the insurgents, but pressed them so closely that Claypole surrendered, and William Baker was shot when he refused to throw down his gun; but he was not killed. After one other had been shot, Brake surrendered, and the tory uprising was at an end. When the tories duly reflected upon what they had done they repented, and in order to make amends, they joined the American army and fought till the end of the war. A cavern is pointed out seven miles from Upper Tract which is still called Tory Cave, because of a tradition that some of the terrified men who escaped General Morgan's militia were hiding in it for some days.

The Virginia convention which assembled at Williamsburg, May 6, 1776, and adjourned July 5, 1776, framed the first Virginia constitution. That document was among the first of its kind and became a model for many subsequent state constitutions. It had defects, but was better than anything of the kind that had gone before. Territory now embraced wholly or in part in West Virginia, sent six delegates to that convention. Berkeley county elected Robert Rutherford and William Drew; Hampshire county sent Abraham Hite and James Mercer; while the District of West Augusta, which embraced most of Virginia's settled territory West of the Alleghany mountains, as well as part of the present state of Pennsylvania, to which Virginia at that time laid claim, sent Charles Simms and John Harvie.
On June 2, 1788, a convention assembled at Richmond to ratify or reject the United States constitution which had been framed at Philadelphia the preceding year and was sent to all the states for rejection or approval. There was much opposition to it. Many Virginians opposed it because they considered that it placed too much power in the Federal government and too little in the states. Patrick Henry was leader of the opposition and James Madison conducted the fight for ratification. Territory now in West Virginia had sixteen members, and fifteen of these voted for ratification and one, John Evans of Monongalia county, against it. Following is a list of West Virginia delegates.
Berkeley county--William Darke, Adam Stephen.
Greenbrier county--George Clendenin, John Stuart.
Hampshire county--Ralph Humphreys, Andrew Woodrow.
Hardy county--Isaac Van Meter, Abel Seymour.
Harrison county--George Jackson, John Prunty.

OLD FIELDS CHURCH open saturday only

Also known as the Fort Pleasant Meeting House, Old Fields Church holds special significance in the history of the South Branch Valley. It is the second oldest church in West Virginia; and because it also served as a school house, it is believed to be the oldest extant school house in the state.

The church was built in 1812 on land donated by Isaac and Elizabeth VanMeter, early settlers in Old Fields who, in 1832, built Fort Pleasant, an 18-room mansion of mixed Georgian and Federal styles nearby.

The original deed for the church stipulates that while the property is to be owned by the Methodist Church, it must be available for use by any denomination at any time. This ecumenical goodwill reflected a strong sense among early Protestant settlers that church attendance took precedence over congregational parochialism.

Religious tolerance did not extend to racial equality. While black slaves were allowed to attend services, they were segregated in a balcony accessed from an outdoor staircase. The balcony, which had become unsafe, was removed in later years.

Members of the VanMeter and other local families continue to be buried in the church yard as their ancestors have been for the past seven or eight generations.

Old Fields Church has been restored and is maintained by the Duffey Memorial United Methodist Church of Moorefield.

He was colonel of a regiment in the second war with Great Britain in 1812. He became a flour miller in the South Branch Valley and for many years was a partner of Chief Justice Marshall in the breeding of thoroughbred horses.

"Colonel Jacob Van Meter, the younger son of Colonel Garret, inherited the old Fort Pleasant homestead, where he and his wife, Tabitha, spent their lives and reared quite a large family of children. He was a colonel and commanded a regiment, and took an active part in the war against Great Britain in 1812-13. He built a residence about two hundred yards outside of the old fort, where he and his wife spent the balance of their lives. He also built the finest flour mill that had ever been erected up to that time in the South Branch Valley, which was constructed to run by water power, and it is still standing, although now in a very dilapidated condition. He was an enterprising business man, and for many years a partner with Chief Justice Marshall in the breeding of thoroughbred horses.

"Judge Marshall lived over in what is now old Virginia, and owned quite a thin and ill-adapted farm for grass and grain, but was a very enthusiastic admirer of the thoroughbred or race horse. Colonel Jacob owned then one of the finest grass and grain farms in the United States. Judge Marshall proposed to furnish Colonel Jacob a lot of fine mares and fine horses if he would take charge of them, be at all expense and care of them, and deliver to Judge Marshall one half of the colts each spring, at two years old. Colonel Jacob accepted the proposition, and delivered to the Judge principally colts for a good many years, and retained the fillies, until finally he sent to the Chief Justice one spring as many or more colts than the entire number of mares which he had originally received, when Colonel Jacob received a letter from the Chief Justice saying that he was now more overstocked with horses than he was before he made the deal with him, and he would please never send him another horse. This dissolved the partnership and left Colonel Jacob with a stock of horses which finally improved and bred up the horse stock of the entire South Branch Valley so that it became noted for its excellent horse stock, and held this reputation until the war between the North and the South swept the entire stock away. At the commencement of that war the horses from this valley were eagerly sought after for cavalry purposes, but before the war closed there were none to be found. Colonel Jacob was for many years an elder in the Presbyterian Church, and one of the chief pillars of that church in the valley. His house was headquarters for ministers of the gospel who passed through this valley, whether Presbyterian or Methodist (no other denominations were represented in the valley then).

"Colonel Jacob Van Meter and his wife, Tabitha, had born to them the following named children: Hannah, born in Fort Pleasant, November 8, 1791; married Mr. John Hopewell, of Hardy County; lived there to be quite old, and died without children. The second child, Ann, was born April 1, 1793; was never married, but lived with two of her younger sisters, neither of whom ever married, viz: Rebecca, born May 2, 1799, and Susan, born December 12, 1807. These three maiden sisters lived with their parents at the old homestead near Fort Pleasant until the death of both parents, when they built a neat and comfortable brick mansion about a mile distant from the homestead and on a part of the same estate."
