Micajah (Gwaltney) Gwartney

::Accuracy unknown::

Micajah Gwartney (born Micajah Gwaltney) left Virginia and crossed the mountains into Kentucky and then into Harrison County, Indiana. His line’s pronunciation of the last name had an “r” sound rather than emphasizing the “l” and resulted in the spelling change from Gwaltney to Gwartney. Hence, all Gwartneys in America derive from Micajah (Gwaltney) Gwartney.

Micajah's brother, Michael Gwaltney, (who also spelled his name Gaultney, Gwartney, and Gualtney) of Brunswick Co. VA was a Revolutionary War soldier present at Cornwallis’ surrender at Yorktown.
