From Sheena Lewter

Matthew Luter was born 12 May 1782 in Southampton Co., VA to John Luter and Elizabeth ?. He died 1852 in Autauga Co., AL. He served two enlistments in the War of 1812, one for the 65th Regiment Virginia Militia and one for the 8th Regiment Virginia Militia. He was awarded a land patent of 80 acres in what was to become Autauga Co., AL for his service. He moved there in 1817, two years before it became a state. His land was in the eastern part of that county. I have discovered that there is now a lake in that area, formed from the Coosa River by dams built by the Alabama Power Co. from 1914 to the mid-60s. He very well may be buried beneath it. No researcher of this family has, thus far, located his grave. His widow was granted 80 acres in Smith Co., TX based on his service in the war, and the family moved there after his death in 1862. He was a farmer (no

slaves) and had nine or ten children.

 

 

Notes for Sarah Parnell:

 

When Matthew, died in 1852, Sarah, sold their property and moved to Texas, where she was awarded 80 acres of land as bounty for Matthew's service during the War of 1812.
