  • Notes 
    • **********
      The following is from "The Genealogy and History of the Shreve Family" by L. P. Allen:

      James Shreve moved from Loudon County, Virginia in 1792 to Bedford County, Pennsylvania; then in 1809 to Perry County, Ohio, where the family settled in the Rehoboth Hills near Rehoboth. All his family Except his son, John, left Pennsylvania at the time. J. M. Doty writes: "I was informed by my mother that her grandfather, James Shreve, served in the American Army in the Revolutionary War; he came out all right, and refused to accept a pension, saying that the Government needed it at that time worse than he did. He crossed the Delaware with Washington, and was in the battles of Trenton and Princeton."
