- Revolutionary War veteran. Davidsonville was named after his son Thomas. This couple had 8 children.
Warfield gives the story about Dr. James "Davidson" Iglehart. This is verbatim: "The Igleharts came from Germany and located near Marlborough, Prince George County, in 1740. James Davidson came to Pennsylvania from England in 1775 and enlisted in the Pennsylvania regiment of the patriot army . . . He settled in Davidsonville, Anne Arundel County, dying in 1841. John Wilson Iglehart was born 1814 . . . . His son, James Davidson Iglehart, took his B.A. at St. John's College in 1872."
He obviously skips several generations of Igleharts here. And the middle name seems to be Wilson, not Davidson, according to the gravestone.
Gravestone reads: "Born Nov. 5th in the year of our Lord 1760. Died Nov. 28th, 1841, aged 81 years and 23 days. He fought and bled for his country in the Revolutionary War and ___lested the courage of the bravest soldiers." DAR marker attached. He was awarded a pension on 16 Aug. 1832. [2, 3]
