Notes for ISRAEL MCINTURFF:
Israel McInturff, Sr.b. c 1776 d. 29 Mar 1861 Israel McInturff was born in Shenandoah County Virginia around the beginning of the Revolutionary War. He was the son of Christopher (1753-1814) and Christina McInturff (c1753-?). The McInturffs had lived in the Shenandoah Valley for a number of years, settling in the area that was known as Powell’s Fort Valley. Family History Johannes Meckendorfer, “The Immigrant” and first of Israel’s family in the colonies, had originally arrived in Philadelphia in 1729. He settled in PA, and the family remained there until the 1760s when John MacAnturf, Israel’s grandfather, moved his family south to VA. They were part of the group known as the “Shenandoah Deutsch” who had made the move from Germany to PA and had then started moving into the Shenandoah Valley in the 1730’s and years following. Israel was of strong German stock. His ancestors were Palatine refugees who came to the colonies during the terrible religious persecution that plagued Germany Israel was the fifth child and second son in a family of ten children.
Life on the frontier was hard, but the McInturffs were engaged in community activities and projects such as road building in addition to the normal hardships of farm life. Israel’s father Christopher brought his family to Washington Co., NC sometime around the 1790’s. (Washington Co was later divided into several counties in both NC and TN.) Here life was also difficult, but the family survived and prospered. Their German work ethic held them in good stead. Just as they had moved from Germany to PA and from PA to VA, NC, and TN, many of the McInturff families seemed ready to “pick up and move” whenever others in the family felt the urge. Move they did, but in each move it seems that a portion of the family members remained at each major stop along the way whereas others remained for a time (perhaps a generation or so) and then continued the journey. Thus, McInturffs were (and are) sprinkled all along the pioneer trails.
