    Notes 
    • Colonel Zebulon Pike was an officer in the Revolutionary War. His commission of Captain and Major were signed by George Washington and that of Col. by Jefferson or Madison.

      He was a Captain in the Revolutionary Army and was a member of General Arthur St. Clair's militia sent from Fort Washington at Cincinnati north to the Maumee Indian country. He was brevetted Lieutenant Colonel in the regular army on July 10, 1812.

      He was noted for his bravery and the Indians called him the "Great Brave". He always visited their wigwams without any fear in making his treaties with their tribes.

      Being a soldier and officer in the army, the family moved according to his assignment. They resided in Bucks and Northumberland Counties, Pennsylvania; Ft. Washington, Cincinnati, Ohio (1790); and Ft. Knox, Vincennes, Indiana.

      Col. Pike settled in L'burg township in 1803 and took up a portion of sec. 10 and fractional sec. 11 and 12, situated in Greendale, where the cemetary now is, and from there over to the Miami, as it was then around the Horseshoe Bottom. Col. Pike came from New Jersey, having served with distinction through the Revolutionary War and, like others, gave up all his property to the cause. The war over, the govt. was tardy in recognizing his services and claims, but a few yrs. before his death these were settled in part. He died in 1835, honored and respected by the entire community. Col. Pike was the father of Gen. Zebulon Montgomery Pike, the discoverer of Pikes Peak and Lieut. George Pike who were both killed in the War Of 1812.
