  • Notes 
    • Enlisted as private, 2nd Reg. MD Continental Troops, commanded by Col ThosPrice; in 1777, he was wounded at Battle of Brandywine "Being a native American of Irish descent, he enjoyed a practical joke now and then. A story handed down for generations tells that although he built stocks for the Sevier County jail on the public square in the town of Sevierville, he pretended that he did not know how it operated and persuaded the Sevier County Sheriff to sit in them to demonstrate for him. When the Sheriff obliged, he promptly locked him up and enjoyed the fun at sheriff's expense. [Wonder what happened when the Sheriff did get out!] [Source: The Book of Reagans by Donald B. Reagan, p. 21] A plaque in Sevier County reads as follows: "Timothy Reagan, 1750 - 1830 -- A soldier of the American Revolution, Timothy Reagan fought in the Battle of Brandywine in 1777 with Major General Marquis de Lafayette where both men were wounded. In 1795, Reagan forged into the wilderness of the Middle Creek area of Sevier County, being instrumental in the construction of Lawson's Fort. Near this marker he built the first stocks used by the Sheriff of Sevier County. Reagan was a farmer and blacksmith by trade but was well known by the early pioneers for his Irish sense of humor. He and his wife, Elizabeth Trigg (1760 - 1830) were the progenitors of many Sevier County descendants, most notably, John Henniger Reagan (1818 - 1905), a Postmaster General of the Confederate States of America and later a United States Senator from the State of Texas. Sevier Museum of History and Art - dedicated March 7, 1986."
